Give them an inch... :rolleyes:


But what about other orbital objects? Will we see the ISS overhead every so often?

Oh and Meteor showers that would be pretty interesting too

I mean it's not anything to lose sleep over but that would be a nice bonus if they popped up every so often

Codemasters put deer running across the track in DiRT4, so I think eclipses, shooting stars & satellites isn't too unreasonable a request especially for a racing simulator. ;)
If we could also just have accurate star constellations too! :p

If you've got time to look for the ISS etc then you're not racing :p. You'll be wanting something like this (www.stellarium.org) for that kind of thing...

It's all stuff that may be considered for future installments of the game, provided that performance impact (if any) is acceptable and higher-prio things do not suffer from implementing this.

I'd rather Dodge marshals running out on track dragging bits of car and debris off the track than eclipses or shooting stars ......that said I do like it when a bird flies over at bannochbrea you see the shadows on the road , it's nice attentive to detail .

A few groups of rowdy blokes throwing Beer bottles onto the track and at the cars as they drive past the pub in the village on Bannochbrea would be a nice little touch too!

Before any meteor showers or ISS, I want to see wallabies at Bathurst. If it's immersion you want, let's focus on things that impact (no pun intended) the actual racing first and foremost.

Personally I'd be more interested in additional weather effects over space stuff.
Tornadoes would be interesting, especially if they give me a lift to the finish line. :)

Not just on track side, we need them on track with a special flag for wallabies on track. I guess its too much work to program them, just for one track.

Oh, I didn't know that, who controls them then? Is it a mechanic? I'd always assumed it was the driver.

Edit: a quick google search and I've found a mechanic attaches an air pressure tube. Ignore my ignorance above!!

Well the count down as now started and game will be with us soon, but as of now i have not seen 1 video of this game running on xbox one
Pcars1 had lots of videos, we just see pc and vr and there are many console players out there who want to see something on consoles
all this vr stuff is no good to us console players and most will just never or need to use it, just 1 vid from xb1 would be good seeing its like 2 weeks now till game release.

We need both then. 2015 it was a wallaby that caused a FCY. At least it was reported as a wallaby during the race broadcast.

EDIT: Sorry, I don't mean to come across as trying to argue whether it's kangaroos or wallabies. That really doesn't matter. My original point was simply that I woul rather SMS spend time on real, race impacting, extras rather than stuff like eclipses, tornadoes, or the ISS passing overhead. Things that waste resources and don't actually add any value. No one will stop mid race to watch the ISS fly by or look at an exlipse, and a tornado would mean the race had already been red flagged due to lightning. Hence no value add. Hell there are threads here where people already whine about the "annoying helicopter", and now we have guys asking for eclipses and ISS. The only eclipse that deserves to be in the game is the one made by Mitsubishi.

I think it's cool to "loose" the conversation a little bit once in a while, at least for me. Especially because it makes the atmosphere of that forum a lot better than others that I entered, more friendly. Thread "derails" a little bit but always come back to the track.

Back to the topic: I pre-ordered my copy about two days ago! Yay! I'm seeing and saw lots of videos, but I coudn't find a video with the "time attack" Lancer...or maybe I didn't searched right...I want to see (and of course, race) that beast racing in something wild, maybe California Highway, to feel a little bit like Ari Vatanen doing hillclimb.

I was barely being serious with the ISS or Meteor Showers, I mean 99.999% of the time it would be happening but I thought it might be a fun and unique addition if they wanted to add it. All things considered though having the occasional passing plane across the sky would make it feel more real. Anyway I'll stop thinking of random objects to put in the sky, as I said I won't lose any sleep over it.

Just why do this? It's bizarre and doesn't exactly help doing more than one career save. It wass the same in the first game.

honespc
08-09-2017, 20:13
Random weather could have made the career so epic. Script weather is meant only to showcase the weather system. We could have very well given the possibility of choosing between real and random weather instead of script, at least after finishing a certain number of career tiers, or winning them

Ok folks time to get back to Earth, and throw some light under a number of concerns that complicated the lives of many in pc1, including myself, now that release day draws near.

I was browsing the GTplanet forum and came across this post:

" Has this online bug:
http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/showthread.php?42206-Game-freeze-and-crash/page2

..and the wheel rotation bug (you join an online FA race for instance, and instead of the game setting the wheel at 360 for this car and then setting a soft lock too, it rotates the maximum degrees you have your wheel set at. Imagine a FA or a GT3 at 1080) when online too fixed in project cars 2?. Needless to say that I have my wheel perfectly calibrated or anything basic-else. It's an issue that happens online with wheel users. I'm on a T300RS

I have suffered the first issue since the days of patch 6 or so (I've had this crash twice today too), and the second one since release, which happens in online lobbies mostly.

^These issues sorted already?"

Any information?. I have always had these issues as well.

If a multiplayer race is already in progress, meanwhile, you can join at any time to watch the action...
The director can also toggle key information on and off in the broadcast feed. These include the driver standings, splits, race overview, full leaderboard, track map, and speedo...


This broadcast mode seems bonkers.
Really excited for this.

I wonder if there's a limit to spectators in the lobby while a race is ongoing, on console.

It all does seem very impressive, albeit a bit bonkers, tbh. I can see myself messing around with some of the replay and editing tools, but as for the dedicated broadcast and director slots? I can't see that being used by anyone other than the hardest of hardcore league streamers and eSports guys. It's cool that the features are there, and maybe I'm wrong, but personally it feels like it's going to appeal to, and be used by, a very niche subsection of the overall playerbase.

eSports is becoming a much bigger "thing". SMS wants to be pioneers in this space so creating "broadcast quality" will be an eventual requirement.

Trippul G

I suppose you're right. I don't begrudge the fact that the tools are there. I'm just clearly not the type of player who SMS included those tools for. I don't broadcast stuff and only very rarely watch anything on twitch. I don't have my own youtube channel, I don't belong to or even follow anything on eSports. I don't do snapchat, and I don't tweet. I like my single player games and will occasionally do some multiplayer with friends.

Now if you'll excuse me, I've gotta go chase some kids off my lawn. :disgust:;)

I don't see myself ever using them either. However, after seeing what happened with the semi-recent Las Vegas Formula-E eSport competition, it was pretty clear that there needs to be a big leap in what sims provide in this space for eSports to be taken seriously. I think PC2 is going to close that gap a lot in various ways.

speaking of eSports, is there anything planned for the community weekly or daily wise by SMS?

For example a daily hot lap contest, but you only get one shot at it.

Or a weekly race challenge where you race a class of cars on a certain track the whole week. A podium finish will give you a "ticket" to a higher tier where you race people who also have those tickets. A podium finish in the second tier race will give you a ticket to a championship race which will take place on weekends, and so forth.

It all does seem very impressive, albeit a bit bonkers, tbh. I can see myself messing around with some of the replay and editing tools, but as for the dedicated broadcast and director slots? I can't see that being used by anyone other than the hardest of hardcore league streamers and eSports guys. It's cool that the features are there, and maybe I'm wrong, but personally it feels like it's going to appeal to, and be used by, a very niche subsection of the overall playerbase.

The fact that these things are there will get more people interested in finding out what they can do with these tools and experiment, hence it will become popular over time.
I can see a lot of clubs and leagues using them as well.

I linked my mate last night and he was asking where can he get that software and for how much!
He streams and does commentary, so broadcasting tools on this level for his league provides a polished viewing experience for motor sport spectators. Eyeballs = sponsors and prizes for racers.

I guess if more of us start watching eSports or private league streams, and we prefer streams produced with the pC2 Broadcasting features, then in that way we all become users (or at least beneficiaries) of those features.

I would have liked to be able to use H-shifter, paddle shifter and sequential shifter without having to reassign the controls.
I always use the same shifter as the car has IRL.
My Fanatec shifter, combined with the CSW V2 base would allow that, but I use it only for H-shifting because I have a dedicated Heusinkveld SQ shifter.
So extra (alternate) up/down control was what I hoped for...

lol just for anybody who might or will sure run into same problem with t300gte or rs wheel.

I was about to order a couple of switchers (inner) for the paddle shifters because they were like failing, before pc2 to be ready again. That's what I was thinking, that the swtchers (inner buttons underneath the paddles) were faulty after two years.

Sorted it by just tightening the two screws that are attached to each paddle zone (It's four screws in the centre and two each paddle sector) and the problem is gone. They again make dat sweet click, and work flawless.

No joking. I fixed it like that only. Hope some of you find this apparent piece of trolly advice helpful just in case your wheel is having this issue, and if you still haven't had it then you will soon, so don't forget. Just tighten those two.

I have this problem too. I searched about and also found that you just need to tighten the screws but was unsure which screws.

Is it screws within the wheel, i.e. do you need to take the back off and open it up using the 4 (or 5) screws you described in the middle?
Or is it the ones I've circled?

(Just wanted to check as I don't want unnecessarily open up or break my wheel!)

It does appear that way. This also leads me to wonder if the only way to know your personal best for a particular car/track combo is to select that car and wait for the track in question to load? I hope not.

I know PC is supposed to have more freedom than consoles with regards to the number of online leaderboards that can be recorded and displayed. If I'm not mistaken, PC will have track leaderboards which can be sorted per car, whereas consoles will only be able to sort per car class. So, are we to presume that these personal best times seen in the video are shown to players regardless of platform, or only on PC?

Personally, online leaderboards are cool and all (I mostly just compare against friends, since I'm always miles off World Best times), but I'd really love to see a local leaderboard where I can just browse the track, and see a list of the fastest times I've personally posted with each car...or similarly, browse by car and see which tracks I'm fastest at with it.

I know, probably wishful thinking at this point, but...just putting it out there...

Hi! :)
I've been following the foruns for a while, but rarely interact. I love motorsports (Cars, of course), so I love Project Cars, too :D but I also like Assetto Corsa. Its physics aren't as bad as you say. Here, in my country we have a saying that says: "If you disdain something too much, it is a sign that you actually like it but don't want to admit it.". I'm just teasing you, don't hate me.
But to my point of view: so many games available, you already have Pcars 1, why would you play a game that you dislike so much while wait for PCars 2 release day? No, you wouldn't play it for masochism, or else you wouldn't stand it, maybe you are playing it because dispite its defects, you actualy like it.
Every game has its strong and weak points, even Pcars. Saying that Assetto Corsa is rubish, isn't fair - the same way that I don't accept people saying that Pcars 1 is rubish, because it doesn't work the way that they wanted/would like.
I don't inted to make it a Pcars X Assetto Corsa discussion, here is not the right place for it. It's just that I don't get it why you have this need to bash a game, but doesn't stop playing it.
And, just to be clear, it is not a fight, you seem to be a very nice person conisdering your comments here.
Cheers!

I simply consider it a totally overrated game in what it comes to road cars physics, and who sometimes is lead to believe that all those talking marvelous things about its physics can only mean they play GT3 cars only. I'm sorry for this, but have no choice but to think that way.

Its only strength from the beginning has been the modding scene and the waayy better physics it sported during the first years. Actually was a tittle born to survive through modding, because Kunos is a very small studio. Very very small.

Needless to speak about the scam the console version was, shall we. At least PC1 was playable and good looking on consoles as well.

Anyway you're right. I don't see the need to continue to bash on what already smells as a sinking boat, and more now that PC2 shadow begins to strecth the already narrow survivability margin that was left for assetto in the sim world.

I don't think It will survive PC2 hit. Obviously the fans will continue to play and enjoy assetto, but oh well we all have our little old gems that still play to this day regardless other aspects imposed by modern days and newer tech.

You are not alone in your feelings of AC being overrated.What actually saddens me about Assetto, is that it's a project fallen victim to the "If my wife can drive it then It is not a sim" war cry of the so called hardcore sim part of the fan base.

I actually liked Assetto Corsa physics in the beginning before they began developing their tyre model "deeper". I liked it a lot, but then..., those aforementioned won. Then Stefano Casillo gave up to their totally unfounded criticism, and well..., this is what It's left today of Assetto's once great enjoyable physics.

Saddens me a lot. I liked Assetto, and I'm so glad developers now a days are finally leaving behind the totally old wrong culture regarding sims that if it's not hard, just for the sake of being hard, then it's not a sim. Even Gran Turismo is doing fine in this area; well, that of course as long as we forget about Its GT3 cars being able to recover from huge angle spins at 200Km/h cough cough*

I just watched it, My question is he had it set for 30 minutes only did ten before he simulates it say you run the hole time but say five minutes would it still be that off. Don't know how the game decides on the times , most of us will run the hole time and not simulate with five minutes to go.

a great hug to all the friends of the forum :D i'm back :D

a couple of question:
-i preorder. can i predownload? (steam)
-will there be multiple profile management for controllers? for people who need a different button layout when they switch the wheels (gt and formula for example)

Preorder: We don't have an answer on this Subject at the current Time. - Until now Steam don't seem to show a Pre-Download. (Console PS4/XBox? has Pre-Load)
Profile Management: The Controller Settings are now storred in a separate File, not in the Profile itself. So you can Backup Controller Settings and Manually Load them Back in the Game. (Manual means Copy/Paste, the Game itselft doesn't has such a function)

There shouldn't be much chaos as long as the game is just as good as it seems.

Problem is the classic bugs that will be making for another ride in pc2. These bugs that lie so deep in the code that, either can not be fixed or the risk of doing doesn't simply pay off. This will upset again so many folks, including me probably.

What I'd do mods, is to open and pin IN CAPITAL LETTERS a thread dedicated exclusively to the workarounds that are possible for pc1 classic bugs that will be there again. Most of these bugs have a workaround (like the wheel rotation/physics mess after switching cars, which workaround is done through just loading a setup after racing), and should be of great use for everyone. Even for old timers

Good question since freak snow storms are not unheard of in July or August in parts of Canada......

Edit: August 1992 Bryan Adams had to cancel an outdoor concert in Alberta due to a snow storm. In July 1990 Sunshine Village ski resort was open for business due to heavy snowfalls well into May.

I'll admit it - I wasn't always that happy with the original game - but in hindsight I think it was because I'd been hyping it up in my head for so long, 'finally' I'd be able to play a proper PC-style racing sim on a console, I'd be able to do GP2, WEC, Indycar, touring car etc races, get immersed in qualifying, practise, setups and endurance races swapping in and out with the AI - perfect. Then when it came and had limitations/issues, I think I was quite hard on it. No real Indycar liveries, can't do a LMP1/LMP2/GTE grid on single races, bugs, no ovals, etc etc etc. I think ultimately I had an image in my head about what it should be, and was disappointed because it fell short.

But I bought pretty much all the DLC, put hours and hours in - and find myself willing Friday to come quickly so I can get my hands on the sequel, which I reckon is a pretty decent mark of a successful game really.

Good post this! We all have been there when a game has fallen short in areas we particularly want...it sucks. I'm lucky PCars was top notch in all the areas I wanted so loved it. Hopefully PC2 will give you more of what you wanted originally!

For some reason, I can't download the game on my ps4. When I clicked on the download button from the "Library" in the "Purchased" section, it send me to the psn store for two seconds before bringing me back to the "Library". The game is available to pre-load but it won't let me download. I am going to try this again in few hours. If I can't download the game on the day of release, then I will have to call Sony. I tried "Restore Licenses" and that didn't work. I also used the psn app on my phone to see if it would help but no luck. I just hope I am not the only one having this issue.

Whose fault for not preload available many days before too then? Steam, Bamco or some other unexpected issue?

Hey. Sure, i can do this. Pointing out the bugs could sound like i don't like the game.. But to be clear: I absolutely like the game how it is at the moment! I would give it a 9,5/10

The 'minor bugs' I experienced:

- Lags when other drivers join and disconnect from a Lobby (More distinctive than in Pcars 1)
- the praised 'standard-setups' aren't there yet. Many of the standard-setups atm aren't too good. But i guess the standard setups which were done by the developers aren't in the game yet. (a 12,9GB Day-1-Patch is already installed)
- FFB doesn't feel too good 'out of the box'. I choosed 'informative' and it is quite unspectacular with my T500 in Comparison to other SIMs.
- the penalty-system sometimes does odd stuff
- I can't hear the race-Engineer/spotter through my headphones. I can see the subtitles (so he is actually talking to me) but i just can't hear him.

- The 1.3 patch isn't through yet as per Ian (still sitting at Sony / MS, awaiting clearance).
- FFB - try the 'immersive' preset
- The race-engineer / spotter comes through the speaker in the pad - still, it SHOULD come through the headset imo. Idk if it is by design or a bug though.

Regarding the lags - from what we've had in our Multiplayer testing sessions on PC, it was massively better than in Pcars1. Yes, there were still some lags, but the were so minor, it could've also been a single skipped frame.

- i will tweak around a lot with FFB in the upcoming weeks. Thanks for the tip.
- It can be that i can't hear the Race-Engineer because i'm wearing headphones and so i can't hear the speakers from the Pad. I searched a bit in the settings if there is an opportunity to change this. But couldn't find anything.

- I think those lags are a bit of an PS4-Issue. In comparison to Pcars 1 on Ps4 i would say they are slightly more intense. In Project Cars 1 they also did only happen when someone joined a lobby. Now there is also a lag when someone leaves a lobby. This seems to be new.

But again:

I love the game :o
Can't wait to hit the track again.

FFB on the T500 should be good right out of the box, depending of course on your preferences and expectations. Make sure, though, that you map FFB volume -/+ to a pair of buttons as the optimum FFB volume varies from car to car (unfortunately). So it could be you've driven cars with just low FFB volume.

There's no per-car saving of the FFB settings in pC2, so you'll have to adjust per car if necessary.

So you need to adjust the ffb gain per car but it doesn't save it? Seems like an odd design choice.
