They'll come in a later update. The animations weren't finished before release.

No not canceled but refining them as there is a lot of work to do as each car has to have it's own pit crew.
The cars are of a different length and width plus not all tires are in the same place as are the fueling caps etc etc.
Also there are the different classes in the same race which makes it even more complicated.
They will appear at some time though.

No, the pit crew will still be implemented. But they cut it from release because there were too many bugs and it still needed some tweaks to make it fit for every car. Almost every car needs different placement and animations because they all differ in wheelbase, width and tank opening (sorry - I'm missing the correct word) placements.

Find it funny how quick answers come for pit crews.
Pit crew is just window dressing, make zero difference in game play, I sure hope this is at bottom of to do list
At least below.

Yeah, the Xbox MP fixes are taking longer because the animation artists are busy with the pit crews. :rolleyes:

You know, I did not realize that. Yea, it must take a lot of work to get it right with all the different cars PCars has. Take your time SMS, I'm sure we can live without the pit crew animation.

The guys that fix the Track Limits and the guys that fix the Leaderboards and the guys that fix MP are not the guys that work on pit crews....
Got it now?

well, pull the guys off the pit crews and get them to work/help on something that matters :rolleyes:
Not trying to upset you guys, just found it funny within tem min he got response from WMD,SMS, and Mod for something he could search , and is not a big deal at all.

You have no idea how game development works do you.
The Devs specialize in different areas.
So the Devs that are doing the pit crews have no idea how to fix....
Track Limits
Leader board
MP for Xbox

I wonder if they'll add more people other than your own pit crew
Looks a bit empty out there :)

And then ? It actually make no sense, when you can`t capture the "business" in pitlane, when you even don`t have control over your own car in the pitlane.

No offence. :friendly_wink:

That's what I mean - throw in some stewards, some engineers on the pit wall, some tool boxes in the garage, other pit crew hanging about waiting for their cars to box...

Plus I like giving my hands a bit of a break when the autopilot kicks in at pit lane.
Gives me time to sort out my pit options too
*sigh* controller life...
