    Why I don't play project cars?

    Project cars as the potential to be a great game, but a lot of little issues still bother me. I love racing car game, I can play simulations, even if I am not an expert, so I don't have time and desire to take hours of configuring the game.

    The first issue at launch time was about wheel feedback, now it seems much better but I still use custom settings from community. (I have a G27)

    Now the main issue still bother me is the AI, choosing the AI level manually is boring, and it's impossible to find the good percentage to have an AI I can beat with a good challenge simply because it depends of the tracks and car combination I use. Sometime I have issue to defeat AI at 40% and some other time I can put it at 60% or more. Tweaking this during the career mode is a non sense and time consuming just to be able to enjoy a race.
    I am expecting an AI that is able to adapt his difficulty to myself during the race, by doing stats,... Raceroom do something interesting on this point.

    I also notice that the AI still go out of the track just after leaving the pit lane during practice sessions with the side effect of coming back on the track too fast and hurting other cars.

    Don't forget on a closed track only the opponents are a source of adrenaline when fighting them closely.

    I don't think anyone is going to confuse the meanings of intelligence artificielle and artificial intelligence, it's clear what he meant.

    Anyway, I can understand the OP's frustration at having to adjust difficulty nearly on a track by track basis. However, I would prefer this method to a career mode like other games in which the AI is constantly slow and useless at maximum difficulty always...

    At least we have the option to try and change the situation in order to get the experience we will enjoy most. Though I do hope we will see a more robust AI implementation in Pcars2 that uses some of the features we don't see much of in Pcars1, but have be asserted as existing by the developers.

    Making AI respond to you in realtime will open up the rubberbanding can of worms, personally I'd rather just restart the race and adjust the AI level vs "magic cars" that suddenly catch up to me. Since it takes the racing element out of the game, no matter how fast you go, they would always keep up.

    While it's definitely a user's prerogative to want certain things, but you being better or worse at certain tracks than your competition is a reality. Certain tracks in real life suit particular drivers' styles and those drivers will perform well on those tracks and maybe struggle on others.

    Looks like there is an opportunity for someone to create a database that has average track times for AI difficulty levels for each car at each track. Then you can compare your own time and adjust the difficulty from there. Would take quite a bit of time though. Unless there is something like that that already exists and I'm not aware...
