I'm on PS4... updated to patch 6.0 this morning. I've been practicing at Laguna Seca in GTE cars... Last night before patch I was running around 1:24.6 as my best lap using soft tires, with today's date as race day... , this morning my second lap ( race conditions, tires pre-warmed ), my second lap was 1:24.4, four or 5 laps later , I dropped bellow 1:24 for the first time in this car ( Ferrari GTE ). Normally, when just getting behind the wheel like this( early in the morning, hadn't driven in 7 or 8 hours because I had been sleeping ), it would take me some time to get the feel for driving, so the fact that I was running quicker on the second lap, and then improved even more , pretty much tells me it's not placebo... but then, who knows, maybe I was just really feeling good this morning. ( even though I didn't stay at a holiday in express last night )

It would be good to know the extent of the patch. In particular I’m thinking damage and collision model, tyre changes, track and road feel and vehicle physics. Were any of these changed?

For me patch 6 has had a downgrade on road feel, increased sliding in the rear on minimal steering input and a huge force feedback difference to different cars I hadn’t experienced in patch 5. This is the first time I’m commenting on a patch release since pcars1!

I raced with others and it was about a 70/30 split in worse feel/same if not better. All with different branded wheels. Personally I’m using the PS4 Fanatec Elite.

Interested to see what others think of the new patch.

New patch means new force feedback setup required... what a pain

I tested a few races and the results are great to me. The tyre model for sure impacts Indy (no longer snap oversteer and better grip/feedback).

I was never able to race at Indy without seeing crazy things in terms of physics/ffb/AI. Had finally a great eace today. Color scale of tyre temperature is changed. Looks like tyres are more gradual.

I haven't noticed any changes as of yet - will report back when I will.

One request though: please get the engine sound of the 911 RSR GTE correct. It sounds like a modified version of the Cayman ClubSport instead of the banshee that it is in real life.

So, my PS4 account is from N.America.
N.America always gets that patches later in the day vs. Europe.
I've been sitting here for a couple hours doing 'check for update' with no luck.
Then I decide to look closer and it's already at V6!!. It was updated this morning at 7:20am.

I have no idea how all the updates came so sychronized on all the platforms (even within Sony Europe vs. N.America...). I was simply convinced that would never happen.

For me THE FFB fells really bad! Car feels like driving on ice again the same like at the release of the game.
What a step back :( start again with find new FFB settings or throw the game in the garbage can.

I’m sick of fiddling with settings for days.

Pit for wet tyres in a league race, with wet tyres selected, and just get sent back out the pits on worn slicks, ruining my race. After nearly 9 months and still silly issues like this with the game? I’m done with this game now, not wasting any more time with it.

Sounds like you had "recommended" in your pit strategy rather than "all". It is annoying that it works that way but set it to all and it should workaround this
feature/glitch.

Great update, physics/tyre model both feel brilliant, not sure if it's just me but the graphics look cleaner, the AI seem to be much better (no more jerky steering from them, looks much more realistic), my V3 brake pedal is rumbling away beautifully and the Thrusmaster Bluetooth display is now fully supported... very happy!

I dont think the jaggies have been improved but racing at Oulton there i swear the lighting is better and there was no squares or banding in the sky which dramtically improves the look of the game.

Okay just had a race at Long Beach jaggies have defo been improved so its likely the better AA is also improving the lighting.

GT3 cars feel great only thing is during the 10 lap race at Oulton i hit 2 land mines not as bad as PCars 1 landmines but enough of a jolt to send me off track.

The whole look of the game seems far better to me; sharper, brighter, better colours, vastly improved mirrors.

I've only ever had one landmine... in a laggy online race at Dubai on pCARS1... that's out of thousands of races.

My first 4-5 hours on ver.6 has been a solid improvement on my racing experience. I saw tonight that France has the DLC already. I imagine this means us racers in the USA will have it tomorrow? Once again two thumbs up for the work SMS has done to improve the immersion, graphics and most importantly, imo, the realism in this sim. Is their anything holding up the release in the US other than the usual Sony USA process?

Now I feel rain driving better I noticed that in thunderstorm I drove 3 seconds faster on Sugo and could drive a lot more laps and when the left front was 55% you could still keep lap times just 2 seconds slower than with new tires,
before you could only drive 10 laps before the car was barely runable.
The car feels much better now in the rain thanks.
Even AI now drives more really in the rain.

Wet driving much easier. 25 laps in the rain at Hockenheim National against AI 100/100 and not one loss of control or spin out. Except mild puddle drifting. Tire wear was consistent throughout race by the end my tires were completely shot.

Absolute joy last night! 15 Lap race @ Oulton 20x Weather starting at 12.00pm Sunny then Heavy Rain 5 laps in and then back to sunny while just turning into sunset/evening! Looked absolutely incredible and very PCARS 1 - Whatever they have done has made a massive difference graphically.

Physics are finally finally amazing! I've always loved PCARS 1 but i never felt confident driving/pushing the cars the way AC gives you that confidence, Last night was the first time ever i actually felt 100% in control of what i was doing in a PC title and was very AC like and dare i say it but i think it has passed AC now it genuinely feels way better than PC has ever done and boy we can finally race in the wet!

Top stuff! I've barely touched 2 compared to PC1 but i feel its now finally time to hammer the game.

My wheel is a Logitech G29. When you had this issue was it also after a few laps with the Porsche 919?

It was with all cars I tried, ie the new DLC cars, going down Mulsanne straight (Vintage LM).
I'm on Xbox, so I don't know the PS4 tricks and tips, but for me it seems to help to always power down the console completely. Might be a good idea to recalibrate the wheel. After patch 4 (I think, it seemed to help when I uninstalled/reinstalled the game. I dunno. Have you checked if there are new drivers for the G29?

Also, try the other flavors, like RAW.

Pluriomidica
06-06-2018, 21:06
Okay I see. I think next time I play I'll do an endurance race at Le Mans but with a GTE car, to test whether this problem only occurs on the new DLC cars, or if it's on any car since the 6.0 update. I'll try your other suggestions as well and I'll keep checking the forum. Thanks a lot for getting back to me

PS4 standard : Custom race, all aids , 19 AI, date : 21/06 - 17H , dry weather

Hello,


I tried a race with RX cars on Imola. There is a concern with the top speeds of the AI. In the long straight, I can reach with the default setup 243 km/h while the AI ​​reaches 213 km/h and whatever the level of the AI ​​(I tried 50%, 80% and 100%). I said that I tried others tracks and the problem is present on all tracks.
Thanks to the devs for look at this because it is very annoying.

Bugs after patch 6.0

Lobby multi class. Despite of the fact that the lobby was in multi class option by the host, the others drivers couldn't change the car selected by the host, neither if the host change the car.

No sincronized drivers. In a lobby where the drivers were exiting and entry, then some of the others drivers couldnt see a re-entry driver. We tested several times.
- Some of them reported that the re-entry driver was transparent, they could see him and when he pass them, he do it over them. The re-entry driver, could not see them at all, nor in the hud, neither in his camera the physic car.
- Some of them reported that the re-entry driver was in box, when he were on the track.
Note: Could the host migration cause that bug???

Permanent yellow flag.. In the minimap a yellow flag was permanent despite of the fact that no driver were stopped in that point of the circuit.

I've only ever had one landmine... in a laggy online race at Dubai on pCARS1... that's out of thousands of races.

I had the same feeling. It seems more polished (sharper, brighter, in most cases mirrors are now better (I used Resolution Mode on my PS4 PRO)). Maybe lighting was improved providing a sharper image and better colours. Handling with the pad is now good (car is more controllable).
There are lots of bugs (in the unofficial list provided by Asturbo) that must be validated (as fixed or unfixed). I hope developers will fix the remaining bugs and provide improvements (sush as filters on MP, better replay handling and image quality...) in the next patch largely requested by users. I would like to know if image quality improvement is also recognized by owner of standard PS4.

I was on vacation and was only able to test 6.0 yesterday. I didn't play more than an hour in the past 3 mo. But I will definitely get back to it now. The most obvious improvement is the car handling and FFB -- feeling great on my t300 with a lot less violent reactions.. the reactions intensity feels more in par with the weight of the wheel. I had 3 awesome races online yesterday. I think although not as obvious as in a GTS the physics when hitting other cars is more forgiving which will have a very positive impact on online races. A lot less car being completely unbalanced after a slight touch.. pobably less frustration and hopefully more players online . I noticed also some changes in the colors and it feels like the sound quality is improved, less "compressed" I can hear the engines and the sound effects better. I'm pretty sure the AI has changed again on ps4 because I had to drop the difficulty at 60 in p5 and i'm back to 90-100 with this update... Also some other stuff I noticed.. I was braking consistently between all the cars tested.. and I didnt experence any transmission locking up on downshifts (auto clutch off) Thank you for the hard work. This update is fantastic!

Hello,

here, when selecting an indycar road version on a road circuit (monaco for example) for a custom race, the AI ​​may have indycar version oval. This was already the case before the patch 6.00, I said but still no correction.
maybe it is not solvable?

That was a bit hard to read but what do you mean by "as someone who only races online in open pits"? Do you mean public/open lobbies?

Ok. If you are the host, unless I'm mistaken, I believe you have the ability to directly remove "unwanted/bad drivers" from the roster.
Additionally you can control who joins the room/lobby by setting it to "Private" thereby inviting or allowing only those you wish to so join. If you have the lobby set to "Public" then anyone can join.

After many hours of career tests I am disappointed by the rain races, the I.A. it runs too slowly! too slow, there is no competition so, even if I put 120 do not run fast, this thing ruins the game.

I often beat the AI with the default tyre, wet and dry. You can make the race competitive again by adjusting the AI and if you reach the 120/100 you can then also change your tyre to a slower one.

Here I win against the AI quite convincingly at 120/100 on the all weather tyre.

So I change to the all terrain tyre and leave AI at 120/100 and the race is close again as you see.

No, that's exactly the point - after patch 6 you no longer "have the ability to directly remove 'unwanted/bad drivers from the roster".

What is with the finale drive changing by its self or the separate gears suddenly all being the same ratio??? its lucky I am not new to tweaking stuff or a lot of races could have been wrecked :( hopefully I got a vid of what I mean I will try and get posted soon

A video would be great, as we need to know when it happens. I guess it happens before you get into the car? If yes, it should be easy to resolve it by re-loading your set-up?

I have seen this too, on Xbox. Reported the following late April: (BMW 320 TC career)
Few strange things though. I started testing different gear ratios. Tested on track, then I went back to Setup. And the numbers were suddenly different. Only possible Final Drive for the BMW is 2.944 and 3.something. I got 4.308? Changed ratios again, and same thing: When I returned, numbers were off. And it felt that it wasn't just showing the wrong numbers, it felt wrong on track as well. I'm no tuning guy, so I could be wrong.
When I adjusted the numbers again, it was weird again. If 3rd gear for example showed 2.200, and I clicked left, it didn't go to nearest value. It jumped 3-4 values down. So one click left, and one click right did not return to same value. It took one click left, and 3-4 click right to do that.

It's some sort of bug. I'd noticed it before the patch and mentioned it and brought it to Asturbo's attention. He also put it in his list of bugs thread back then hoping it would catch the eye of the developers. I saw it happen to me again just yesterday as by force of habit now I glance at the gears when double-checking in the pits.

I don't know if it's cosmetic or if it actually affects the gears but just to play it safe when I see it I reload the saved tune and that gets the gears back to how they're supposed to be. It scares me when I see it though. Apparently still there in patch 6.

Yup. THat's what happens. Sometimes the last 3 gears are all the same too.

Apparently not, the host ability to kick function has been removed... it has to go to a vote... and it seems it was a deliberate change which is a really bad idea.

After a break, I'm finally finding time to play this game again.

I remember being very happy that the AI was fixed for offline racing. There were many improvements that finally made the game playable and fun for me, compared to at launch.

But*the AI during qualifying is still not right. They will follow their line whatever the cost, and will ram you off the track to stay on it. This is not the case during racing, as they will change it based on your position in the track.

I can't ever complete a clean qualifying session. It gets to the point I'm so frustrated I can't even finish one properly, so I don't even make it to the race.

What gives??

Seriously... I thought it would have been corrected by now.

How do you guys get around this?

I haven't been able to consistently repro it but happens to me often in the C7R. Say during quali I've done some laps, gone back in the pits to make a change.
The gear ratios aren't actually changing even if it says so on the screen: if you drive with the wonky ratios your shift points are still the same and what not. It's purely UI glitching.
A setup reload fixes it.

Just read this.. And Now it makes so much Sense..
Last night I tried an AI custom race at Daytona with the Indy car.

I was trying to adjust the gear ratios, and was having so much troubles..
it just didn't seem to be working, and then the next Adjustment was, way over the top..

So it was as if the 1st adjustment had no affect, and then the 2nd one, had too much affect.

After reading your experience, it now Make sense..
the Adjustments weren't working, and then the 2nd adjustments did,
but were twice what I thought, because I was adjusting more on top of what I had already adjusted that didn't have an Affect.

Relating to 'ai improvements on many tracks', does it includes monza gp? I say that because the ai is still very odd there, very slow mid corner and corner exit, but then unreally building too much speed on the straights, braking suddently after overtaking the player and still punching the player in the back too much. And in nurburgring's shumacher esses they are still too fast I think.

Anyone have an odd digital distortion during replays (trackside cam)? I recorded some ok clips of what I'm talking about. It seems to happen with most cars for me at the moment. I deleted the game and reinstalled with no improvement. Don't recall this prior to 6.0 but that doesn't mean it wasn't there.

Please, please, please look into the frame drops while racing with 31 AI at the end of Kemmel straight/entry of Les Combes at Francorchamps... It messes up my braking and turn-in a lot when defending or attacking.
It weird because it's the only point on the whole track where the frame drops are really noticeable.

Do the frame drops disappear with less AI? If yes, do the AI take strange lines in this section causing them to collide more often than elsewhere on the track?

It's much less noticeable when driving alone or with less AI, but still there I think. To be 100% sure, I will need to verify this. They don't collide, or at least, not that I am aware of.

AI is pretty solid around Spa, except in the left hander after Bruxelles and in Blanchimont.
The Bus Stop Chicane has a problem when there's a car entering pits. The AI slow down way too much for the left corner of the Bus Stop because (presumably) they think they will hit the car entering pit lane.
But like I said, it's pretty solid overall, and I am very happy to be able to drive my own endurance 24 hours at Spa :D
