    career mode - missed opportunity

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FIsh1sdPa0I

    Well, here it is. Sounds like it's identical to the press releases being shown off on youtube.

    Massive missed opportunities -
    Scripted weather again - kills all reason to replay a season

    To "beat" a tier you have to win the championship - You should get rewarded for doing well - either within your tier, or another higher tier

    Contracts completely unrelated to the teams - so what's the point?

    Sigh, so, I'm a complaining machine - the UI is better, so that's good. But for pCARS3, I'll sign up for WMD, but my purpose will be to help design the single player career mode, because this is not .... worth playing, honestly. I'll just stick to multiplayer.

    May as well just have separate championships one can choose, and not try to tie them all together in this superficial way...

    If WMD3 is available to sign up to, don't assume that your ideas for single-player will be accepted. If the devs were to make a game for everybody, the game would never be released and it would be an ungodly mess. That's not to put you off joining, it's simply to point out the, sometimes, harsh realities of game design. There are millions (many many millions) of potential players out there and they will all want their own thing from the game, meaning a game will never ever appeal to all of them in all aspects. Just keep that in mind if/when you sign up, as it will save a lot of potential disappointment.

    On the flipside, throwing ideas in is what WMD is about. It's about seeing what sticks and what can work. Ideas are what make a game's development thrive .

    So, you assume no one in WMD had ideas like yours?

    who knows? Did they?

    And were they overruled by the directors who simply had different artistic goals? I've never read anyone who thought having scripted weather was a good idea.

    And of course, I'll be one of many pitching ideas in WMD, but at least I'll have more of a chance to be an influence than on this forum 4 to 5 months before the game is released.

    Hope springs eternal...

    I'd be willing to bet my house that many people on WMD2 suggested non-scripted weather and a change of the slots system to allow that and improved randomised weather. And I'm also willing to bet my house on the fact that limited resources in terms of man hours will have prevented the ability to implement this. Maybe the improvements of the weather and improvements to processes will allow other areas to be changed more easily thus allowing for a better weather system in PC3. Maybe a new Variable weather system will be able to use IRL data to generate a realistic weather pattern despite it being somewhat random in areas.

    From what I read in regards to production of pCARS1, it was an artistic decision, not a technical one. They didn't want it to randomly rain in Dubai, for instance. The wrong decision, tbh. And also, I'm in the industry, so to me it makes sense that if they can make it work in multiplayer they could make it work in single player. I just don't buy it.

    I could be wrong, but even if it was a technical problem, it's worth delaying the game to change it 'cuz, again, it's a huge detriment to the game.

    I wonder if you can "make your own career mode" in custom championship.

    I don't think there's a custom championship option, is there?
