Forgive me as I might of missed this information (work life balance isn't balanced too well atm) but have we now replaced GT4 in endurance racing ? So instead of Lmp1 lmp2 gt3 and gt4 we have lmp1 , lmp2 GTE and Gt3 ?

From what we have heard here and on the GTPlanet forum GT4 should still be well populated. They have just increased the car count in GTE and split them from the GT3s (as they should be).

Has Andy tudor revealed a tidbit about Project CARS 2 in a tweet? the wording "Goalem helps you to populate all your PROJECTS! is not a phrase used by Goalem themselves (that I have seen)

seems too much of a coincidence, maybe this qualifies as 99% ? (if not please move and I apologise for speculation in a "confirmed" thread)

https://www.google.co.za/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjAhKTun8nSAhWsLcAKHZUSDKIQFggYMAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fgolaem.com%2Fcontent%2Fproduct%2Fgolaem&usg=AFQjCNHdgYoc_mxpf6LjyFbrdiA8xmVuRg

The tweet

https://twitter.com/realandytudor

He also likes the new Civic Type R (but that would be pure extra hype for no real reason...)

However Goalem Tech in crowds/population in some form could be great!, but again this is pure speculation...:cool: but check the 20016 showreel in the link anyway out of interest's sake anyway, not relating to Pcars

Have just had an amazing RUF ctr yellowbird at Nords, with dinamic weather.

First lap sunny dry conditions. Begins raining on the long straight prior lap check, and keeps raining harder for the entire second lap.

Street Medium Tyres behaving really well too once the track was full wet. So nice. Even when with the tyre temps cooling down so fast they behaved so damn realistically well, as opposed to other "·sims" like Assetto, where driving on ice seems to be the real thing...

Project Cars 1 is so freaking good already. Can't wait to see the handling even fuerther refined plus the adition of Ferraris, to witness how Assetto Corsa really falls apart. Assetto Corsa physcis, at least cocnerning Road Cars are just so bad I can't play that game anymore after having experiences like the one I've just had with PC1.

Can't wait to see how Ian finally decides including the F40 too in pc2, and send Kunos physcis engine reputation right down the toilet. Assetto Corsa can't just compare to Project Cars.

The waiting is already painful enough man.

Anyway I know complaining about another game in this forum may look so coward of me, but what can I do when It's right honestly the way I feel about the two games when brought to comparison?. Every day I go back playing AS once more, and once more I can't just stand its atrocious road cars physics. Over and over, day after day feeling the same thing. Then I switch to project cars, choose any powerful road car in any circuit (but Nords is special for this), and then I just have so much fun taking all corners side ways and generating smoke in most of them. In project cars I feel in control of my car. In Assetto Corsa I'm not in control of my car.

Assetto Corsa Road Car physics are considered good?, seriously?. I can't just convince myself about that regardless the many times I play as well, because if driving on ice is what people consider a sim to be, then I don't like sims. Road Cars physics in that game are simply bad; not even wrong I mean. Just bad

Hope you're right about project cars 2 being the icing on the cake to the already brilliant cp1 man, but as I said, the waiting is already painful

Indeed and if you see how on Driveclub the graphics have been toned down a lot for VR, I wouldn't hope too much for it. It seems the PS4 is just a tad too weak for good VR. But then again, it's also entry-level VR.

Andy's interview of the Redbull website (http://www.redbull.com/en/games/stories/1331843830816/project-cars-2-interview-red-bull-games) confirms that PSVR support is not a certainty yet, but the team does everything they can to make it happen.


What can you tell us about the PlayStation VR features?

With PSVR we can't confirm that it's definitely coming, but our team are hard at work on it. The reason I can't confirm that it's definitely going to come out is because there's a lot of work required to get the game running to our standards. Because of the two screens that you need, because of the frame rate that you need to keep up in order for the whole experience to be comfortable, and because of all the stuff we're throwing into the game: a large numbers of competitors on the screen at the same time, all the weather features, the Live Track stuff that changes things dynamically, all of that adds great gameplay. So therefore there's a fine balance between what is visually acceptable and what is actually detrimental to gameplay, so we need to investigate it a little more, to make sure there's no compromise on either end – either in visuals or gameplay. I'm sure there will have to be some sort of compromise, but the team are investigating where that line is drawn in the sand; where that balance is, and that'll give a determination of where we proceed with PSVR, basically.

But recently, the italian Playstation Blog announced pcars2 as PSVR compatible (mistake ?)

Go to the GTPlanet forums and check out the Q&A thread with Ian Bell.... There are 2 other Senior SMS employees there as well going by the online names of "The_American" and "TheOwl" that have also been authorized by Ian to answer on his behalf (I know who they are but respect their anonimity over there so I won't mention names here either).

There has been some discussion about the AI recently and there are some amazing improvements coming. Mainly to the physics for the AIs, but also their driving behaviour. They will also have to deal with the on track challenges that LiveTrack 3.0 will introduce.

Full details are best read first hand over there though.

Have you ever heard the comments from IndyCar drivers at Indy and how much the wind affects them? It's not insignificant. Adds several mph on the tailwind straight and removes several mph on the headwind straight.

Both situations alter how you drive the car, both in braking zone impact and gear selections.

Wind plays a serious role in a lot of ways.

I'm not sure it's a great idea to add wind to the game. I think in real life it's far easier as a driver to "feel" the wind from visual cues all over the circuit as well as the entire car behavior (not just the force feedback from our wheels and controllers). Therefore if braking distances would be affected by wind I'm not really sure this could be done in such a proper way that the player indeed "feels" the wind and can take it into account. I think more likely it will just turn out that the player has no clue what's happening (not enough input available from the game to indicate wind strength and direction) and it will just result in comments like "braking in PCARS 2 is too inpredictable".

If wind has a really minor influence then it could all be okay I guess. But looking at PCARS1 some of the effects (like cold vs warm tires or wet vs dry racing) feel to me as if they were exaggerated from what they are in real life, especially in the "slower" road cars like the Audi A1 and Megane. I hope if wind is in PCARS2 (and judging from the Brands Hatch flags it will be) then I seriously hope it won't be over-exaggerated and just a minor effect.

Anyway I hope my worrying is not needed, I'm just thinking that the average Joe Schmoe with his controller in his sofa has no proper way of knowing what's going on in the game in regards to wind effects.

Bealdor
30-03-2017, 06:56
Wind and its effects on your car were already simulated in PCARS 1, they "just" added wind gusts.
So if you don't think it was exaggerated in the first game you won't need to worry about it for PCARS 2.

F1_Racer68
30-03-2017, 12:18
That's why there are things like flags at race tracks in real life. They aren't just there for decoration. Some tracks even have a number of wind socks.

These are tools for drivers and teams to be able to tell which direction and how strong the winds are. I am sure we will have similar tools in game.

Having tip-toed around what would become the usual Turn 1 carambolage, Mario Andretti became the first-ever US winner of the US Grand Prix, and the first winner of a Grand Prix using a ground-effects car (the Lotus 78 in Project CARS 2).'
That is a 2nd mention of the 78 in articles, looks like they don't mean the 79 after all

I know there will be people with the usual "this is a real sim go play Forza" type of response, but I can't help to think how cool it would be to take a look up close at the details of the cars, take pics, etc. That suspension looks really detailed, same for a pic posted a while ago where we could see the engine in the back.

If they use dedicated servers then it will not be the same system. PC had the ability to use servers with Pcars 1 console could not. Console uses a peer to peer system. Dedicated servers can make for a much more stable online experience if SMS uses a good server system. Manual pit stops is almost unbelievable on console so many moving parts. I wonder how much can be ported over to consoles especially XBOX 1. Not really worried about xbox Scorpio it is supposed to have nearly PC processing power.

Do you think these fish will eat chicken. I know they will bite on coleslaw but i took all the coleslaw out of my tackle box.

My bet for the 1993 Jaguar V12 is the disqualified XJ220C

Won the race but was disqualified post race for technical infringements. Don't recall the full details.

That video should never have been released in its present form. It's riddled with technical issues that have nothing to do with the 'work in progress' nature of the content. I'm guessing the YouTube upload wasn't checked before being made public? It's a real shame for 'official' content to be buggy like this as it won't fill Joe Public with confidence. They'll think the game actually looks like that.

Content could really be more interesting too. Different driving views, maybe a replay lap, variable cloud cover, overt LiveTrack features showcased..?
It's a little dull and repetitive to me.

As I said, from my perspective it's nothing to do with the WiP nature of the content. It's technical issues with compression/encoding/uploading to YouTube, and bland artistic choices with regard to what was shown. pCARS 2 doesn't look anywhere near as bad as that video is telling Joe Public. It actually looks bloody brilliant.

The next release needs to be even better now to wipe this one from public memory, and can't come soon enough in my book. 'Damage limitation' might be too strong a phrase but this video has not done SMS any favours.

Removed from the official "news" section on PCars site as well, certainly interesting vid, but I agree with Mascot it gives too many people with little understanding or interest of 'WIP' easy 'ammunition' if they are that way inclined, also showing use of TrackiR at this early stage has confused a lot of (casual) people and gave a wrong impression perhaps of what to expect, the F rates and youtube compression at low res did not help it at all, I watched it in 720P on large TV and it still did not look 'polished' enough for PR at this early stage, enjoyed it though :)

I think a better quality version with a few updates, posted alongside the original later to highlight and point out improvements over current WIP would be a good idea, as well as giving insight of how things can (will?) get better during development, a (slight) PR gaffe could be turned around into something good

Cheers Dakpilot

For me, the video was hardly promoting any new features of pcars 2 (very hard to spot), was kind of boring (Public Joes needs flashier videos and racing nerds would ask for hotlap not just driving on the track), with unpolished elements (sounds, etc).

I must say the Rallycross video leaked some weeks ago on the GTP thread (before being removed) was way (way) more astonishing (sounds with misfiring system, incredible lighting and weather effect, glipse of the penalty system, etc), despite the obvious bugged mirrors.

Regarding about the sound, not every car in pcars 2 had new sound sample yet. That car is one of them that still uses the old sound.

Some of the new cars that were upgraded recently, they sound whole lot better than before. A lot more growl and rawer but I think there are still room for improvement. I still hope Pcars 2 will have R3E level of sound design and samples as the difference in the sound of a DTM, GT3, Group 5 and a TT Cup is staggering.

...which makes the 'official' release of that video even weirder. Flat lighting, dull palette, uninspired and repetitive content, awful video compression, and now outdated and recycled audio. It's like it was deliberately chosen to show pCARS 2 in the worst possible light. I'm totally baffled.

Pulling the video was undoubtedly a good idea but it's still out there and being joyfully pedalled around the web as troll fodder.

Nope, it was released through an official channel. I have to assume a big bollock was dropped somewhere and the wrong video got uploaded, but if that was the case then where the hell is the correct version?

Pulling the video without any explanation has left a gaping hole. A simple 'oops - we dun goofed' statement might add some context and help cage the trolls.
