    [pCARS2] Most exciting new feature

    I know there are tons of stuff that hasn't' been announced but what are you most excited for in PCARS 2. My top 3 are Ovals, the live track 3.0 and manual pit stops (does anyone know if you'll have manual control coming to the green?)

    What are your favorites so far?

    New tire model

    Ian bell

    "We have the world's first fully dynamic and real time tyre model shipped in a commercial game. There are no lookup tables, no Brush models, no Pacejka formulae... This is truly a next generation real time, live node based model. Our tyre model takes up two whole cores on the consoles. Ignore AI, contact, collisions, and anything else remotely tyre based, we're using that amount of horsepower for the base tyre simulation. "

    along with new differential and other physics ( and environment ) upgrades, this will be the greatest/most exciting improvement if combined with better default wheel FFB settings and Controller settings

    If these basics are good everything else, cars etc. can be built, added, patched on this foundation

    Cheers Dakpilot

    Yeah the tire model sounds awesome and from what I hear about the physics, it sounds like a big step in the right direction.

    live track 3.0 & additional weathers - I love SMS's attention to detail and focus on immersion. All these little things they include add up to a much bigger sense of immersion for the driver, it is so important yet so many developers don't bother and just stick with the basic minimum expected features and never try to push the boundaries (happens in all genres, not just racing). its why I can not wait for Pcars 2, the on the track feeling during races can not be beat.

    FFB & physics - as much as I loved Pcars 1, these two definitely needed a little love. good to hear they have been addressed by all accounts. some cars I just had to stay away from. hopefully my old fanatec 911 turbo S is still supported and feels good on one of their 3 default settings, I had to jump through 7,643 different hoops to get it working well on the first one..

    New E-Sports Focus
    Online Racing License/Rating
    New Race rules/Details/Features like manual pit stops and new penalty system (Really can't wait to see this)

    Also Porsche, which is a reason in itself for me to buy the game.

    My 3 favorite features in the game:

    1) 60+ different locations (PCARS 1 had 35 so that's almost double!!!)
    2) day/night cycle & dynamic weather + its effect on racing with live track 3.0
    3) realistic immersion (this comes from a lot of aspects like the seasons, manual pitstops, manual rolling starts, animated pit crews, car sound improvements, improved penalty system, ...) - basically a lot shiftee already mentioned

    The big push in making tracks come to life (Live Track 3.0, dynamic weather, dynamic seasons, and laser/drone scanning) is easily my favorite!

    Livetrack will sure be the one thing people will probably be wow'ed about the most.

    For me though, it's how all integrates together because of what I know and see SMS do (and I'm here since WMD opened basically).

    SMS is not just doing a sim. It's their passion and why, again, they're pushing simracing forward, pioneering and pC2 will be a heck of a surprise in the genre

    let's hope the tyre model lives up to the tracklive thing, and each compound works as intended, as well as proper punish/overheating/bad performance for low pressure abusers
