It takes times to work uniquely each and every car. TBH, it should really be the last thing they worry about.

Would be nice to have the pit crew , add a little more realism to the title ................. , there is so much more work to be done with the stability of the title .

We get pit crews when they are done & ready.

Or not ?
E.g. GT6 had working pitcrews during the first weeks. Then - for some reason - PD removed them and left players with a ghost pit lane. Even the doors closed after you passed them. Cars behind you were cranked up and serviced by ghosts.
Maybe PCars does not introduce them for the same reason, whatever that reason may be ? I can imagine GT6 on PS4 struggling, but PCars on PS4 ??

And honestly I'd be fine with that. While I think it would be incredibly cool to see the pit crew scrambling around changing your tires and such, if you compare the amount of work required vs. the additional enjoyment I'd get from the game, it seems fairly low on the list. Before I get completely flamed, I know there are those who think this feature would be awesome, and it would. However there are a lot of things that affect actual gameplay that I would think have to take priority over this.

I'm not sure if we will see them at all as I would think it would kill frame rate in a situation where you have 15 or so cars pitting .......:( I hope I'm wrong .

To my understanding they will first take out all the bugs,glitches,... Before they concentrate on things like animated pitcrews,flags,...
First gameplay,then game enhancement.
Not a bad thing imo...

I made a thread about it that is under investigation :search for"udate on flags and penalties"
There it's stated that they will adress it after the bugs are fixed...

They'll never take out all the bugs and glitches with this game. So far for every one they take out (or claim to) they add 1 more .

My understanding is that the pit crews are THE reason we don't have manual control in the pits. Personally, I'd rather have manual control in pit lane, especially in light of the fact we don't have the animated pit crew anyway.

Nope...THE reason for not having manual control in the pits is to my understanding the PEGI rating...
Even with one man standing in the pit,one could run him over and therefore PEGI 3 wouldn't suffice...
This all has been explained before...

How bizarre! What would happen if you ran over him, blood and guts everywhere? Other than that what issue could there be?

Err.. Thats exactly what I'm getting at! You just said Nope then went on to verify exactly my point. The pitcrew is THE reason we can't have manual control!

Therefore, get rid of this pitcrew plan (as plainly its a bit too hard) and give us manual pitstops!

No... I said PEGI rating is the reason... In order to avoid that,they have to eliminate the one guy too...is that what you mean?
If that's the case i would rather have them animated in stead of empty and manual...but that's just my opinion...i DO understand your opinion too...

You say PEGI, I say pitcrew, but essentially its the same thing. No pitcrew (including any one in pit) then we could have manual control.

Didn't GP4 have manual pit with animated crew? (Can't quite remember).

I don't know...never played that game...i did hear that F1 2015 has them but that's just hearsay...
Maybe if they make them ghosts it's possible but that's a question for the developers....so...
Wouldn't be much realistic being able to drive through them though...
Another practical question:how would you be able to know where to stop if there's no one standing there?

Yes,they were actually ment to be in the game on release but they weren't optimised enough so they released the game without them...i think animated pitstops are more likely to make it in than manual pitstops since that was the intention all along... At least that's what i read on this forum...

So to me that's a reliable source...that's why I always try to refer to the original quote...

they've confirmed it so many times it would be sour to have to say "yeah remember when we said soon...it's never" but we'll see...F1 has very nice pitstops but then again that's just one car...assetto corsa also has nice pitstops but only multiplayer...will there ever be a game with proper GT/LMP pitstops? who knows

It is not an easy issue to fix as there are many classes in the game that has different widths and lengths that needs each car to be individual set to ensure the pit crews are all at the right position.

I think it's time to give it up... one more broken promise in a still broken game.

PCars is now V 5.0 and they still try to fix bugs that should habe been gone in V 1.0. (Tried PCars again after a long break, and it wanted me to race the Caper Stockars in the rain in career mode, but only allowed me to use rain tyres on the front wheels. Almost 1/2 year after release).

Could have been a worthy GTR2 successor, but ended up as a weird mix of Gran Turismo, Forza and Assetto Corsa, where you even struggle to pick your livery or save more than one setup.

just sad :-(
