    Pit Strategy in real time

    Hi,

    I did a race with 4 random weathers, and i realized that it's not easy to change tyres, fuel etc...
    Indeed, weather forcast was sunny day, and after 5 laps, it started raining. It was a big mess to change tyres.
    When i succeeded, they also refueled me, and i lost a lot of time.

    Regarding PC1 it was more easy as the choise was done when entering the pit lane.

    I tried GT Sport this morning, and it's not so good, but Pit strategy is fantastic. all is in real time. tyres, refueling and reparing...
    Instead of doing Nothing in the pit, it will be great to have that kind of system in PC2.

    I'm not sure I follow what you're saying. Am I correct in assuming GT Sport only lets you change/select/confirm what you want done during the pit stop once you've entered the pit lane? In my opinion PCars 2 does this far better. You get to choose tires, refueling and repairs before entering the pits, which means you don't lose valuable time. I can't imagine real life teams only start thinking about what to do once the car is stationary.

    I made some custom pit stops E.G. wet to get, dry to wet where the only thing happening was a tyre change, also splash and dash where fuel was the only thing etc etc works quite well..

    You understood well, and sorry my English
    In PC2 it's very difficult since PC1 let you choose when entering the pit lane (more easy in automatic entered).
    The Current sustem in PC2 is too heavy to control.

    you can set up multiple pit-strategies before the race starts and you can select them on-the-fly with the ICM. and IMO the PC2 method is much much better and far more realistic.

    Maybe you are right, but there is no flexibility.
    I mean, during a race, on Ps4, it s not easy to choose when going fast on the track !

    Maybe you will only need to refuel ,or only change tires etc...

    it means that you have to save 20 strategy before starting the race

    @ianbell Do you think it will be possible to add previous system's from PC1 pit strategy ? and to let the choise to player to choose between PC1 system or PC2 system ?

    Yup.
    Wets to Dry No Fuel
    Dry to Wets No Fuel
    Fuel Only Stop
    Like for Like Tyre Swap.

    Obviously if I crash and damage then default looks after everything but it's race over anyway.

    Loving the outrage
    Enjoy.

    if you turn off manual pitstops (AI Control in pit lane) then you have more time to adjust your strategy via ICM.
