    Pit Stop AI; How Does It Work?

    While on AI/auto-drive, without prompting on several occasions the car pits, doesn't make any changes, and then continues on. Sometimes it pits on every proceeding lap after that when low on fuel despite having enough to finish a race. Is the AI making a "judgment call" to refuel? If so, what's the point of calculating fuel for the beginning of the race if the AI then proceeds to chuck it all out of the window despite having enough to finish the race?

    Is there some override on pit calls that I am unaware of or is this faulty AI, a glitch, etc.? It's frustrating to try & simulate an endurance race with an AI driver change only for the AI to chuck everything and do it's own thing without prompting.

    It might want tyres. Make sure you have a tyre strategy set to ALL rather than recommended. If the AI doesn't get the tyres it wants (wet or dry) it will pit continuously. AI is also cautious about fuel.

    Thanks, Daz. I just ran another test race. It does seem to be cautious, as you said, & want fuel despite having enough to finish. So, good to know. If you want the AI driver to finish a race, you will probably have to overfuel. I also did indeed have the previous race set to "recommended" tire change. I had this race set to "none." So another test later on with it set to "ALL" to iron out the kinks.

    Thanks for the info!

    Exactly, the A.I. is overly cautious and will try to pit for tires he wants or fix damage despite your ICM settings set otherwise. Same for fuel.

    Thanks, Sentry. So much for doing a long race & taking a nap when the AI is driving
