    yeah just been watching. will be running behind safety car until that section of the long straight clear. it’s far to risky at that speed. the rest of track looks ok now.

    i did notice a lot of foggy tracks in europe last night using live weather. so it’s clearly capable, but i guess it depends on the forecast site .
    we often have fog here that’s not on current conditions according to weather app. then drive ten minutes further and it’s clear as anything.

    And I had it pouring down with rain on 31/12/20 when weather underground said there was no rain on that date. That was before my practice session crashed, with the frozen screen thing and then I gave up. AMS2 was always cc wry stable for me but not right now.

    that Dacia should not be on the track. the speed difference is scary. will be a miracle if it doesn’t cause a big accident because it comes out of the blue like a stationary object in 100m visibility

    You do realize that devs can't sit and watch weatherstations all day to make changes to the differences from live weather forecasts right? :D

    Perhaps the answer is in the service used?
    OpenWeather (Сurrent weather and forecast - OpenWeatherMap I believe this is the website) reports overcast if you search the Nurburg weather forecast

    E.g., search for the weather forecast in Francorchamps on OpenWeather, it reports "Mist", if you go on track selecting the current date and 13:00 it's actually foggy, so it matches. Other websites report only cloudy or overcast. So I think this is the answer, the game uses what OpenWeather is reporting. OW wasn't reporting fog at Nurburg, so in game there's no fog

    Automobilista 2 pit stop in-game management mode is broken?
    Seriously, the navigation trying to get to the strategy that you have saved is broken. At some point, the whole screen disappeared from view. C'mon Reiza...please fix this so I can get it to work with Voice Attack.

    Although now I'm even more full of questions about the Real Weather so @Renato Simioni if you could answer it would be awesome.
    Does it work only on the current time and past times? To make it more clear, now at Spielberg it's raining, and in game it's raining if I select 13:00 and current date. OpenWeather expects it to stop raining around 3pm and it's predicted overcast for the rest of the afternoon. So in game I select 20:00 expecting an overcast weather and it's still raining.
    So how does it work?

    :p Yes I do.
    I am just saying that a feature that gives you real-live weather should give you real-live weather, mostly.
    I know that it can not be perfect, but on the other hand there better should be not to many „it does, but...“.
    I worst case at some point we are running into the case, where you can not call it anymore real-live weather.
    Just like case n24 2021. you wanna re-race that date? You get no fog? Well, I have sadly to say that in this specific case this game feature failed, because fog is/was the main weather factor, which is not present ingame on that date.

    Looking forward to this polishing. In the meantime, I use R3E for ADAC GT Masters 3+4 and ACC for GT3.

    @ Raceracerace:
    Thanks a lot for the comprehensive write up of your Porsche setup. I am not such a big big Porsche Fan in order to dive so deep into it's possible setups. I have driven some 911, also 908s, in several other sims then AMS2 and in all of them, the standard-setups catched the spirit of this unique sports/racecar already quite well. However I did not use a Porsche in my virtual racing on a regular bases. I rather stick with C6/C7, McLaren 570 and 650/ 720 or the AMG.
    I owned several Mercs , 5 Yamaha and 2 BMW Boxer Motorbikes for many years and I am quite familiar withe principle and characteristics of this Boxer engine.
    Of course, the Porsche 911 in all it's many variants is a different beast alltogether, but certain characteristics remained with this flat-6 throughout the decades and dozends of variants of it's built.

    As you can see, I am more the R6, V8/V10/V12 guy. Ideally Front-engine / rear/all-wheel drive. Next on my favs list are all mid-engine rwd/ awd cars...then the Porsche 911.

    As far as racing is concerned, I was a Rallydriver in my 20ties ( Ford Escort 1300 and Opel Kadett GT/E 2.0 ) and grew up only a few Km away from Hockenheim, which I visited a lot and helped a bit in a Team of ADAC Racers.
    I know the Nürburgring quite well, but rather by Motorbike then by car.... I own a C3 Corvette and a Toyota Supra 3.0 in Sportstrim... so now you know my preferences..

    The new Cadillac DPi-VR drives really great. Had a lot of fun on Spa. Starting with rain. Time speed x30 and ending with clear weather. Really awesome to see the changes in wheater and time.

    And the 24h race was halted because of fog in about 1/3 of the track. Also , at the start,some sectors were wet and even flooded while others were still dry or so dry you could get away with cutted slicks.
    Now tell me one sim or one weather-forecast service who get's it right.
    Nordschleife is famous for its different weather conditions in different sectors.
