    Rules & Flags

    How come it's on or off and nothing in between, or have I missed something?

    I had to turn them off due to the ridiculous slow down penalties being given out, but then no blue flag are shown to lapped cars.

    Hopefully that's being looked at and fix, Codemasters allowed a reduced Rules option which out in flags but removed silly Rules which didn't work for online racing

    Because GRID wasnt trying to be authentic in the first place.
    When you think about it though, the blue flags in Project Cars are kind of useless at the moment anyway.

    Totally agree!

    I'm not sure why they are useless, as the game is aimed tobbe a sim then in real life then flags would be shown.

    What problems do you have with slow down penalties? Usually you won't get a penalty unless you do something wrong. Or do you experience a bug in context of penalties?

    The problem is they are overly aggressive at times, people are getting ting slow downs after making a pitstop and others are getting massive slow down for a corner cut. Yes it's a corner cut but 100s slow down is a touch harsh

    Personally i've only had it once, I out braked myself at the Spa bus stop chicane which took me well into the run off area, by the time I'd stopped I was almost at the wall and eased myself back on track.

    All of this cost me far more on track time than I gained, yet I was given a slow down penalty for cutting the track, It appears at times the game can't or doesn't know the difference between cutting for an advantage and mistakes which actually cost you lap time.

    There is one bug with penalties I've found...
    At Monaco, when you leave the pits, if you follow the pit lane exit you get a penalty! If you exit the pits and go straight back out on the racing line and drive to the left of the pit lane (yellow line) you do not.
    That's not quite right!
    I also found it almost impossible to drive a lap of Monaco without exceeding track limits, would be good to try and understand where I'm failing here.

    Ah I see. So far, I got a few slow down penalties as well but they have always been when I accidentally cut a corner too much or so. Always felt it was justified.

    Getting off track, loosing time anyway and still being "rewarded" with a penalty sounds like there should be improvements made.

    I've found that I get blue flagged when overtaking cars in qualifying.... doesn't seem to have a specific car or track, but was much more frequent in the karts than in proper racing cars
