    Question How Do You Play Project Cars?

    So it's just been over six months that the game was released and after career mode has been completed or at least all disciplines raced, how are you playing Project Cars? Obviously there's multiplayer but I'm more curious as to other interesting ways people are playing the game.

    I have recently started to focus on mastering a discipline and getting to grips with it's various nuances as well as trying to get the best car/setup combo. Then moving on to another.

    Six months? Did I imagine things back in 2015..??

    Or six months to release of Pcars 2? Ahh, I see.

    I am just waiting patiently for Septemberish and playing solo at the moment. 2 hour practice, 30 min qualifying and 15 lap race. I play part of practice and just tinker with the AI until it suits the track conditions and car. Then kick it off. I am going through all the classes- starting at the bottom ie the classes with only 1 vehicle available, slowly working my way up to the maximum number vehicle class- Road B, GT3 and Road A.

    I am finding that I missed many of the minor classes when I first played the game.

    Go to solo mode, pick a car, track, find a AI difficulty level that will give me a challenge and go for it. Full race weekend, length can be either 15/30/60 minutes depending on how much time I have available, adjust tyre wear rate so that I have to make 1 pitstop.

    I think they're saying that it's been six months since they completed the career? I suspect non-native English speaker.

    Multiplayer provides endless hours of racing, so there's obviously that.

    The other thing I enjoy is exploring the less common cars and classes. There is a ton of content in pCARS, and I'm always amazed at how I discover car & track combos that really challenge me.

    I've also started really exploring time & weather changes. I play a lot of random weather these days. I don't care so much about always achieving the fastest lap times as much as I do simply finding a challenge, and working through it.

    MP. 10+ lap races, up to 2 hours sometimes, with 30 minutes of practice/qualifying total.
    I race with a bunch if guys and we mix it up between LMP, GT3/4, Group C, classic Lotus, Indy. Mixed weather and time.
    Personally I'm trying to explore the slower cars lately. Group A are great fun, as are the FRookie, GT4, Caterham Classic! It's not so hyperactive and keeps the field fairly close. It's a good change of pace. I'll set up an MP lobby with 15-30 minute race time, 30 minute qualifying and race whoever joins.
    Wet racing is incredible in pcars. I can't wait for pc2! Outright qualifying pace means nothing in the wet: it's who can keep it quick, keep it straight, and keep on top of pit strategy and tyre wear.

    Check out this thread for some fun combos:

    What tire compound were you using?
    What was your tire pressure?
    What was the track and tire temperatures?

    It varies. I like to change things up to make things interesting. This past weekend, I did "track night" where I drove the 2015 Ford Mustang GT at Sonoma GP at sunset. Tonight, I decided to give Donington National a try, and ended up running a few laps in time trial mode.

    Who knows what I'll do tomorrow? I might drive Willow Springs at night, which is a big challenge since there's hardly any lighting after sunset.

    I'm still working on the career but does anyone else fire up things to follow real life racing? BTCC donington just happened and I like to blap around in the Ginettas and Clip Cup cars when the tracks in game are used! Silverstone and WEC too so I'm planning some races there this week in LMPs and GTs.

    I just started career again, but this time in VR. The weather and time of day transitions really are amazing. I didn't finish career mode before, but I'm loving it in VR.
