    • AI adjustments: passing routines start slightly sooner, slightly reduced passing boost & increased drop when conceding
    I find this line intriguing. Every time me or anyone else brings up the concept of "rage turbo" we get told that there's no code to artificially boost AI speed.

    I think this is just the name of the parameter for the AI to overtake. Say the AI maximizes slipstream. I've never experienced the AI having more speed - boost- than me when trying an overtake. On the contrary, they tend to pass you around the corner or dive bomb into you at high speed corners.

    That increased drop while conceding might be responsible for something I saw today which was really cool. An ai was trying to pass on the outside so I drifted slightly wider and forced it onto the kerb where instead of racing alongside on the kerb/grass at full power, it actually eased off the power and slotted back in behind. Im finding the ai much improved and very immersive to race against now.

    I see it very often... AI seems to find inexplicable speed only when it's close to the player, to the point that it will reach in a few corners the next pack of AIs ahead...

    Personally, I've had numerous occasions in the past where I could see the AI behind me making impossible lunges on straights with me at full throttle, or making up impossible ground over a few hundred meters. These incidents have largely disappeared which is great, but I wonder if they were related to some glitch in the overtake boost, whatever it was. The latest developments have made AI a pleasure to drive against on tracks like Oulton, where they used to try and pass on chicanes and ended up eating bollard (taking me out in the process) because they never conceded.

    Overall I'm delighted with the progress being made on the general racecraft of the AI.

    The BMW 2002 is such a great car to race. I keep finding myself bothered by the dash instruments being off center to the right. Steering wheel is centered though. Looking at on-line images this appears correct. I still wonder why the instruments are not centered but I'll get used to it. I give a lot of credit to modeling with this level of attention to detail. Well done!

    Is it possible to one day have a livery creation tool ingame similar to this one in Forza horizon 5?

    It would make the game even better with the possibility to create the skins ingame and sharing to other players in the game too.

    I'd be content to just be able to add skins rather than replace existing.
    It's something that the ancient but beloved Live For Speed does very well.
    You can also choose to seamlessly download MP opponent's skins when you join a race with them.
    Not bad for 2005!

    Unless you give Renato a team the size of the Turn 10 team, I'm not seeing this happening...

    Thanks so much voor the 2002 Turbo. It's a gem to drive. Real BMW feel to it. Well done!

    And yes the M1 looks ands sounds better, is way faster, but this little b*stard is something else. ;-)

    Cheers
    Robin

    its not as easy to just add a downloader.
    The whole livery system of the SMS engine does not have the concept for exchanging liveries.
    The new "livery override" system introduced by Reiza was a really great hack done by Reiza, which was not possible in pCARS1/2/3. But not working on the fly, you'll have to restart AMS2 after changing something. For a system you/we wish, they'll have to rework a big part of the basic engine.
    Maybe something for the future, but far away i presume.

    A livery system was implimented into Project Cars 3 by SMS, but idk if it works online in PC3 MP, nor if it could be implimented in AMS2 since AMS2 is a different fork of Madness Engine.

    I would not bet on it that sms did it. when it comes to pc3 its even more possible that its codemasters stuff, well, to be correct these days ea stuff. o_O

    My 2 cents about a livery system… well, open First up full pencilcase of option for artist like different Type of painting like mate, chrome and the option to color rims.
    We ask for this for a very Long time now. And yes, i Know and are with you that its not priority high on the List. Still, lets reach this before Talk about a full skinning System with logo selection and Placement. Step by step.:)
