Hi guys, what will you do first in Project CARS 2.I will do LMP1@Le Mans (R18 if it is in) then GT3@Donington trying out new features.Then, new content probably starting at Daytona or Indy

First I will drive the Ligier Js P2 @Le Mans alone and than a multiclass race with the same car and track.

The first thing I will do is go straight to the Ford GT GTLM car. I've seen that car race in person at Road Atlanta and the incredible noise it makes so I want to see how well SMS has replicated that.

I will recreate the 24H of Lemans with these classes: LMP1, LMP2, GT1 (1998), GTE.

The 2016 Ford Fusion at Daytona multiplayer public room got to see how those physics are working. 30 min qualifying 15 lap race 1 mandatory pit full control pit stop yellow flags enabled and penalties. Jumping right into the fire.

Then I'm doing the same at Indy with IndyCars.

Then GT3 same setup at Algarve or The Americas

Then rallycross.

Then I'm going to bed so I can get up early so I can start working on my car setups. I think the 22nd is a Friday which is good because I had already planned to take of from work. So that Saturday I plan on racing all day.

I will start the singleplayer career mode in the lowest tier again, Zero to Hero achievement or not. Even though I hated that part in PCARS1, I prefer to start there so without further ado... I will be in the karts at Glencairn I suppose. Absolutely hated the kart handling with default settings in PCARS1 so I'm curious to see what it has become in PCARS2.

Nordschleife, time trial. In the Ferrari F40 LM or Porsche 962C.

I will do a Classic Le Mans race with Group 6, Group 5 and Group 4 cars (I'll take the Porsche 936 or the 935).After that I will do a 90s Le Mans race with Gt1 lmp900 lmp2 GTE (maybe with ā Ferrari 333sp or a Porsche 911 gt1). And Also I will do the 500 miles of indy with lmp1 cars for fun :). 20 mins practice ; 30 mins qualifications and 1h race

In addition to what I've already said, I'll probably do a drive in the Coyne car to make it feel like 2012 again. (Yes, my last name is Wilson.) Then I'll probably try the career from the bottom. Would be surprised if we can't join the real IndyCar teams in career.

I'm going to need to practice with all the cars and the car combinations during multi-class races... I'd like to not only run those flagship LMP1 cars, but also LMP2s, especially the real-world closed-top LMP2s (Oreca, Ligier), not just the fictional ones (RWD, Marek)... Also try out the real 911 GT3 R race car as well. But only when I have time from my busy school schedule! Need to prepare for my busy December racing season! :D

Scuderia Paul
02-07-2017, 09:00
The first thing will be going through the new cars looking at the liveries.

In driving terms, for me it can only be the Toyota TS020 GT-one at Circuit de la Sarthe alone with accelerated time. After that, the Ford GT LM at Circuit of the Americas as both are new to me.

Impossible to pick one but has to be some of the new content. Not sure exactly what order and whether the first is a launch car.....

Jaguar XJ220 - track tbc
Civic Type R - Nords
Rallycross - probably Honda or Escort at Lydden Hill. Be good to see some more classic Rallycross cars.

I've just remembered the first thing I'll be doing. I'll be filling in a bug-report, reporting that the login screen has gone* :D



* this caught me out with pCARS1 aswell. When you've conditioned yourself, for 2+ years (or nearly 4 years, in the case of pCARS1) to clicking "Login", when the game loads, it comes as quite a shock not to have to do that anymore. It took about 3 months before I stopped instinctively moving my mouse to the login button, that wasn't there, after pCARS1 was launched :o

I will recreate the entire Le Mans 2017 field with the 919 and the ts050 (expecting to see both these cars ingame.) Then I wil get my hands on skin modding and hope to learn how to create skins so I can recreate the entire WEC and Le Mans Lmp2 field, instead of waiting for some geezer from here to do that for me.

Why are you expecting a current LMP1 in game? Neither would want to share any data in the risk that their rivals will access it.

I'm going to bite off more than I can chew.
Something with too much power and a fat slice of the new LT3.


For instance, in a scenario where it has rained through the night but the dawn comes clear and the morning sunny, those turns lying in the shade will take far longer to dry than turns that are directly warmed by the sun. Deciding, then, what lines to take, and which tyres you want to be on, becomes as crucial in Project CARS 2 as it does in real-world motorsport...
The angle of the sun at a particular time of year, the shade of trees and their foliage, the type of race surface, all of this will have a direct consequence on the feel and grip of your racing machine.



Why are you expecting a current LMP1 in game? Neither would want to share any data in the risk that their rivals will access it.

True dat.
Toyota gave bugger all up to Casey and his crew to get the TS040 done.
And that's for the outdated model.

I don't know if it's a Belgian thing but i'm with Breyzipp...checking out career...:cool:

I'm with the Belgians on this one...I always like to start from the bottom of career and work my way up. Probably mix that with some Time Trials like I did with PCARS1...not with the intention of setting the leaderboards ablaze (if only I had the ability!), but more just to get a taste of as many tracks as I can.

Speaking of leaderboards, I really hope they're broken up per class instead of per category this time. Made it pointless to do TT in a Formula C for example, since it was on the "open wheel" leaderboard and got grouped in with much faster Formula Renault, Formula A, etc.

In fairness, us British have always had the optimism beaten out of us so we probably like to do the same. I always prefer the process of getting to the top than actually being there.

For whatever reason, the website's menus don't render correctly in my browsers. I've tried turning off ad blockers, trying clearing caches, tryed using different browsers, and they all appear in a giant block that covers the top half of the screen. Quite annoying.

And the COTA announcement still says it's the only FIA Grade 1 track in the USA, which isn't true. Despite being used only for IndyCar's start of May race, the Indy Grand Prix circuit in its current configuration is Grade 1.

Will the soundtrack be on iTunes as well? I bought Ca' the Yowes from the Bannochbrae trailer as soon as I found out it was on iTunes. :)

One thing I did not like much in PCARS 1 though is the high pitch opera voice or electronic guitar rif in the main menu music. I mean sooooooooo many times I start the game, walk away to the fridge/bathroom/whatever to hear the menu music awefully loud because I had that volume cranked up the previous gaming session for another reason.

I absolutely LOVE Dirt 4 in that aspect. They understand the main menu music should be a chill tune without high pitch tones. I can perfectly start Dirt 4 and leave it for 10 minutes without having to be scared that my appartment neighbours are knocking on my door with pitchforks in their hands. :)

Jezza819

I don't know if it's a Belgian thing but i'm with Breyzipp...checking out career...:cool:

That is what I did in Pcars 1. This time I feel like an opposite approach.

For the first 12 months I probably not touch career and leave that ice cream for later (depending if they use the invitational approach this time). I will use mostly single race and choose four manufacturers (Ferrari, Ford, Merc and Porsche) and race their cars from earliest build to latest build, slowly learning each car.

Track wise I really want to see Spa in the winter. With full ice/snow and heaps of wheel spin. Also curious about rally cross.

I have great sentiment for Rouen as well, I mean just reading about it's history and how it slowly came on the decline, first being shortened due to a new highway, later completely gone and forgotten. It's really nice we can get a glimpse of how it used to be with games like Project CARS.

The video below is also a must-see about Rouen IMO, it's about 2 Dutch motorcyclists that go in the summer of 2015 to where the track used to be and try to find remnants of the grand stands, pits etc. Sadly it's only documented (not narrated) in Dutch but even still might be worth checking out.

From the historical tracks in PCARS1, purely for driving/racing pleasure in the old school race cars I like historical Silverstone and historical Hockenheim more though than Rouen, I think Hockenheim might be my favorite one but it sure is a close one with Silverstone. When we get historical Spa in PC2 it might become a new contender for the most fun one. Not so sure yet where historical Monza will fit in.

I hope the Rouen tracks will be properly named in PC2 instead of just "long" and "short" or whatever it was. It should be :

Grand Prix Circuit (1966)
Grand Prix Circuit (1972)

The 1966 version is the long one, the 1972 is the one that was shortened for that new highway passing through the area.

Do you use Chrome? and if you do you can activate the 'Spell Check' in the 'Advance Settings'
It will then underline the word that is spelled wrong in red, you then right click on that word and select the correct spelling.

I'm boring, I will start by hotlapping anything that looks remotely interesting (everything?) around Catalunya, which is the track I drove the most recently, with static weather and time of day. This is to dial in my wheel settings and to see how the new physics compares to the old one on the edge. Then I will see online what that new driver rating is all about. :)

A massive drift performance around The Nords with any classic Ferrari I can find in the list, F40 if possible.

If the only available F40 is to be that one suited for racing (LM or something was it?), then I swear I'm gonna put that thing sideways for the entire layout as If it were the road car version, until the damn burn-able racing slicks this special version sure uses send me off the track to crash into the closest barrier because they can not get any hotter.

There's so much road car fun to be had in pc2 if the physics are what we see in the videos, icy, wet weather or dry. Bring it on.

You could say I'm very biased to Watkins Glen since I only live about 90 mins from the track and go there at a minimum 3 times a year but even so it's still the most fun track for me to run, whether its the short or long version. On a side note I was blown away when I first booted up PC with my new wheel, could not get over how much more enjoyable the game is with a wheel than a controller. It's funny because I've had the opposite reaction with Forza.

I will start the singleplayer career mode in the lowest tier again, Zero to Hero achievement or not. Even though I hated that part in PCARS1, I prefer to start there so without further ado... I will be in the karts at Glencairn I suppose. Absolutely hated the kart handling with default settings in PCARS1 so I'm curious to see what it has become in PCARS2.

Actually I've been thinking about this and before hopping straight into career I will do some time trials in the McLaren 650S GT3 on a short track (Red Bull Ring National Circuit or something) and use that to configure all the in-game settings to my taste. A GT3 car should give an overall easy driving experience so that one is nice to not focus on the car too much but more on the generic settings instead. And from the "built by drivers" McLaren video I remember that old McLaren test driver saying SMS had the McLaren race cars pretty much perfect from the beginning, I assume he was talking about this one at least. So it should be well represented in the game.

AC isn't a bad game (great wheel handling) but PC1 & PC2 are so much more.

Assetto doesn't look bad but it will visually be no match against the big 3 of this fall IMO (PC2, GT:S, FM7). Heck even compared to PC1, FM6 and certainly also FH3 it even can't hold its own. I just checked out the new cars from the 1.14 update that (finally) landed on XBox today (including the highlands map) and it can't even match PC1 IMO. Quite funny I also raced on Bannochbrae today in PC1 (also highlands theme) and that just looks a lot better.

However as I said, I really like the wheel handling in Assetto (how I remember it from briefly using it with my wheel :p) but I absolutely hate it for the controller, really awful support for it. Nevertheless I bought their game + season pass full price the moment it was out on XBox and I will keep buying all future DLC content as well. I really want to support all the devs that release decent sim racing on consoles and Kunos certainly is up there with SMS. With the 1.14 update the total car count in Assetto is now at 154 cars and there will be at least 2 more future DLC coming (Ready to Race DLC and Ferrari 70th Anniversary DLC). But they cheat a little with that car count as quite a lot of cars are Stage1/2/3 or Drift versions of existing cars. Nevertheless, there are some true gems in there for both the cars and the tracks like the 1991 Mazda 787B and the 2017 Porsche 911 RSR (991) just to name 2 cars, or the Mugello circuit (absolutely love that one) and .... ahum ... classic Monza. :P I'm sure from September 22th on I can remove that last one from my list of reasons to play Assetto. :)

Talking about classic tracks, Assetto also has a classic Silverstone and I have been comparing that with the one from PC1 a while ago. I loved the PC1 version more, much more detail and foilage next to the track, overall just more atmosphere at the grand stand area of the classic track as well. And then we're not even starting about dynamic weather and time of day... :)

this. verbatim. i was super excited to start in karts in PC1 but couldn't handle the karts consistently enough to be able to race and have fun in them (i'll blame myself for that. using a controller i imagine added a bit of difficulty but its ultimately my fault i couldn't handle them at speed).

I'm just lazy. I buy a console and let SMS tailor their game to get the maximum 100% out of my hardware. And it will guaranteed work.
You PC folks have to tailor your hardware to SMS their game, either undershooting it (poor performance) or else overshooting it (spare performance). And it will probably work. ;)

I'm even ultra lazy, I can be lying stretched out in the sofa on my pillows and fleece blanket with a controller in my hands.

Beat that! :D

I'd rather not thanks :eek-new:

Try using a wheel to see if it drifts, then make your mind up.

But as dault says, if all you want to do is drift with a controller, buy a drifting game.

If you can drift (in a sim, not NFS) then you can be fast because to drift or slide you need precise controls and that means when a car comes out of a corner and tries to spin then you can control it by counter steering, a thing Pcars 1 didn't allow in a DS4.

and any ways if all you are concerned about is drifting and not driving then your better off getting a drifting game as drifting on racing slicks causes bald spots which is no bueno LOL

Actually pc1 did allow it on DS4. You have to be super precise with your steer and throttle.
It's not easy in real life.
It's not easy in pcars1 WITH a wheel.

Don't expect it to be easy on a gamepad.


Try using a wheel to see if it drifts, then make your mind up.

And if you fail, you might just need a little practice.
And tuning.

After readjusting controls, assists, spending an hour setting up the optimal sensitivities and what not, I'll be moving to a full video comparison between the two games' Formula A on Spa and Monaco.

I'll be doing the video in-depth analyzing how much has it changed, how much have we gotten, and how much have we lost. And I'm not only talking on handling, I'm interested in the full package and every detail about it.
