I started the earlier thread about AI improvements in 188.8.131.52. Thought it would be worth starting a fresh one about 1.2 now that we've been playing it for a week. The point here is not to report specific issues like Renato's main thread, but just to discuss AI overall and possibly share tips for having better racing. My experiences have been mixed. I've had good, clean races (mostly in GTE cars) at Jerez, Hockenheim, and Speilberg (which are easy tracks to have clean races at). I was actually thinking I'd try starting up a custom GTE championship this weekend. But then I decided to try Interlagos tonight (again in the GTE series) and it was a disaster--all the old issues were still present: rage turbo, cars passing like you're standing still and and then slowing down and getting in your way as soon as they get past, cars ramming the player out of a need to stay on the preferred racing line at all costs (if you have the inside preferred line going into a corner, why would you swing outside and run into someone?), the "AI Aggression" setting having no relationship to the frequency of being wrecked etc. The one improvement was that I did not get passed in the grass. I tried all ranges of ability and aggression but they really have no impact on one's ability to setup an enjoyable race. AI improvements weren't oversold with developer notes that went with this update--hopefully more are to come. Until then I think I'll stick to the less challenging tracks.
