    Safety Cars

    Hey guys, I've gone though and read as much as possible but i still could of missed something. But is any one else hoping that safety cars will be in the game? or some sort of VSC system? in Pcars one i saw plenty of spectacular crashes with debris flying everywhere, and afterwards would kind of hope a safety cars would come out then bunch up the pack again. any way thats all I had to ask. Happy Easter to everyone.

Indycar does single-file restarts so this is what we will do for all classes on ovals.

    I don't see why it shouldn't.

    So. Correct me if I'm reading this wrong. But there will only be local yellows for road courses?
    Aerodynamics are for people who can't build engines.

    From what i've read, it's more like how the WEC and various other series use slow zones for a section of track as opposed to the whole circuit.

    Well that's a bummer. I was hoping for a full course yellow opportunity to bunch up the field again.

    Probably (And hopefully) for Project CARS 3. They'll have a great base in many areas in Project CARS 2 from what i've seen to improve various areas and delve into others much more like the Safety Cars etc.

    Bunching the field up with a safety car would be great , it would help give you some hope if you make a mistake that you have a chance to catch back up especially if you are matching the ai to within a tenth of a second or so .

    I want to see the system as is first and then see what changes need to be made to make it better. One of the things I love about Pcars 1 is how much racing you get to do at full speed in a race. Bunching the field back up is great for immersion and also for that vital 2nd and 3rd chance at a restart for position. The problem is when you get a race full of restarts. On our old NASCAR games you would do 20 lap races and only get 2 laps of racing because there would be a yellow flag on every lap of the race. Of course this depends a lot on the skill level of the group that is racing but sometimes skill level didn't matter with a group of aggressive drivers.

    SMS usually puts a lot of thought in how they implement things into it's game so let's see how this system works before we ask for a new system. For the record I would love a system that bunches the field back up but I rather have a system that works for the community as a whole.
