    Hopefully some people can let that sink in and figure out that it is kind of pointless comparing how one sim handles from others. No sim is a reliable parameter of realism.

    On top of that, you can notice that the 2013 Indy 500 champ choose ams2 over other sims. :cool:

    Actually 99% of the time he streams iRacing, so I wouldn't say he's chosen AMS2 over other sims. Anyway, that is not relevant - what really matters is that pros use sims to practice the tracks because they are realistic, but the handling is not.

    He did race in AMS2 to practice for a real life Stock Car race he was about to do in a track he has never been before (Santa Cruz do Sul).

    I mean, I guess we'll find how true this is in the next pack, because if Texas shows up, we know you are lying. Lol

    In all seriousness though, what would be the point of rebuilding and reworking a lazer scanned track? (Assuming SMS lazer scanned their tracks or bought scans from other companies) Aren't you just going to come to the same conclusion with a lot more steps?

    In all seriousness meaning you're not actually considering him lying to us, right? I hope you wouldn't.

    And the point of rebuilding and reworking a laser scanned track (assuming that it was in the first place) is, I'm sure there are some parts where the development team's talent and skill can come into play, when making a laser scanned version of the track. I can't imagine it's all just copypasta lidar data and call it a day.

    Project CARS tracks were largely neither laser scanned nor accurate.

    Tracks not received as part of a license deal cannot be used as baseline since the devs wouldn't have received the data/track build in the SDK

    And plus there is some craftmanship even in how someone uses the laser scanned data...

    Laser scanned tracks can get outdated over time, even without layout changes. Consider the significant changes to the Eau Rouge surface and its feel (as reported by the drivers) after the massive floods earlier this year at Spa.

    Of my understanding... Patch 1.3 before end of this week... Racing USA Pt2 DLC shortly after (target of end of month, maybe few days after?)

    true. PC1 didnt have many of those, that change with PC2 though. everything that was new in PC2 had much more detail and felt more believable.

    However, tread with caution, this has been a Reiza Promise (TM). So we know with almost certainty that we're not going to get that update before next Monday :D

    To be honest, for example the Nürburgring, particularly the Nordschleife, was rather badly implemented in PC2. Trackside objects and treelines did not match for me as someone who was actually there abnd drove there RL. Reizas version is a multitude better but will also be outdated in 2022, since parts of the Nordschleife get repaved right now, like in every autumn.

    But is it more or less accurate than the version in The Crew 2?
