Morning, did a few searches but didnt see this mentions specifically, its possible I missed it, if so please take the appropriate action mods.

Racing at Hockenheim last night, had a group of 8 so not overloaded and the game shouldve been able to handle it just fine, and it did for the most part.

Biggest problem. Is Turn 8 (Mercedes)

If you take it tight, but with all four tires still on track, it gives you a penalty, as seen in these clips.....

^^ Obvious spin aside, me AND the other racer were given penalties, and as you can see my tires never even left the track, neither did the other racer.

^^ Little closer to all four off, but still shouldnt have been penalized

Point is, this happened to everyone, we did 3 sprint races of 14 laps each and it happened so often it became a running joke. Just pointing this out so we can get it corrected.

Also, why does it immediately jump to a 5 second penalty, why are you not given a Warning? Or is there SUPPOSED to be a warning but it just doesnt happen? But i can tell you that on lap 1 if you take that corner tight you get penalized. puts a damper on things, and makes it impossible to race through there in traffic.

ALSO, the LINES on the front stretch at Dusk, light up like neon lights. Sorry I dont have a pic of it. but its easy to replicate, Set time to 20:00 and head out, the lines light up like theyre on fire while the rest of the track is in shadow

I opened a Thread for the unrealistic and way to bugged Penalty System here: Track Cutting/Off Track Penalty System Patch (http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/showthread.php?36429-Track-Cutting-Leaving-Track-Penalty-Patch-in-Progress)

This is EXACTLY what i am talking about in my Thread, its just ridiculously bugged in Project Cars and should be fixed immidiatly! You get Penaltys even for Driving the right way as you and i have been given a example for.
Do you know how many times in Multiplayer i got a Speed Violation for just touching Curbs on the Inside of Corners???

I saw your thread I just wanted to mention it Specifically for Hockenheim and maybe catch someones eye. The more attention drawn to it the better! I know they adjusted these things for the next patch (I think?) hopefully this is one of them. The penalty system in this game is way too harsh, especially for racing, Ive said it a bunch, make TT as strict as you want, but when your RACING side by side with other cars there no way it should be this harsh, its not fun. Especially when the AI decide you need to get punted off track and YOU get the penalty.

Im Sorry

Thats what i was saying! I mean i get it that People that did a Mistake when they Break and slide trough a Corner completly or if some Smartass is cheating by crashing trough the Gras to gain some Positions that they need to be punished for that. I get that Part and its necessary for Online Gaming to have a Penalty System!
But if you develope a Game as a Racing Simulator, and your Penalty System cant even pick between somebody just accidently coming off track or taking a Corner wide by accident and somebody really cheating to gain an Advantage is just embarrising and should be fixed ASAP to Avoid anymore Frustration with your Customer.
I mean my Friends and i we Drove some Races yesterday and some of us got penaltys when trying to fight for Position or trying to overtake another car and touching the Outfield a bit on the Curbs. This Bug simply Breaks the whole Point of Racing!
