    Based on Game Build: actual one
    Request Title: more AI opponents
    Description: possibilty to add more than 29 AI opponents (maybe 60?) on certain tracks, for example the nordschleife.
    Benefits: It will greatly improve realism of the game and boost the immersion, espacially on the one and only nordschleife! :) (i LOVE racing this at night :D )

    I know it's probably not particularly high-priority but I think the ability to add custom soundtracks like in AMS1 would be a good addition. Hearing the same one song on loop can get a bit tiring. The ability to change materials in skinning (eg wheel colours) would also be great for skinners.

    One that you dont see a lot in sims but I think the original rfactor had it? And that is that when you make adjustments to wing settings for the wings to visually change to that setting. I find weird that when you add or take off rear wing it looks the same regardless.

    The ability to have DRS indicators on dashboard apps such as SimDashboard for Android, please!

    The DRS indicator doesnt even work on the F-Ultimate in-game wheel, so we have to use the UI to be able to know when it is available and if it is in use.

    Yeah, that's something I keep questioning myself about, if it was an engine limitation or whatnot.

    League events that are in rotation. So I play forza motor sport pc gaming here and it lacks in simulation but offers constant racing. Could we see some race event rolling around the clock 5 minute practice 5 minute qualify 5-15 lap races all tracks and different types of vehicles to keep the racing fresh for a better understanding check out forza 7 league racing in multiplayer racing events.

    SRS is trying to make it happen: Sim Racing System

    Unfortunately it is not well integrated with AMS2, so the experience is not like in AC where you simply open Content Manager, register for the race you want and you are ready to go. Besides, it is not as popular as AC races yet (where we often get grid with 20+ cars).

    Hoping for either Reiza create their own system or they do a great partnership with SRS and make the experience seamless and promoted inside the game (register and join races through AMS2 interface).

    ]Based on Game Build: current
    Request Title:
    local offline multiplayer feature, sadly mostly forgot these days. Maybe something like ghost-mode in track day mode
    Description: We have a supercool option in timetrail mode to load ghosts, not only one but three. This is great. I ask for the same option in trackday mode, or a special section just like in old games, where you could put names for player 1, player 2 and player 3 for offline multiplayer
    Benefits: it would be supercool for „Partymode“ with some friends to race agains each other one by one. (I mean not online, some friends meet locally and wanna race against each other by hot-laping) I realized that timetrail does not help when my fastest ghost is saved, because my friends and I just wanna set fastest lap time per session, so to say at this evening. Racing agains my fastest ghost from tt mode is no fun when friends are not that often sim-racing and therefore not that fast. Beside that, well, partymode, alcohol,... u get the idea ;)
    Let’s call it partymode ghost. Does not need to be saved at any server, just local and with option to delete from local.

    To be honest, I would be really glad if Reiza could bring the game at least to Beta status.
    It is named version 1.3.5 now, but should be called 0.5 Pre Alpha instead, not ready for release.
    Don't get me wrong, I have been loving Reiza's games since the days of Stock Car Extreme, AMS 1 is the title I played most of the time throughout the last years, but one could write a book about missing features and the enormous amount of bugs within AMS 2.
    It's been a year since game was officially released, still a bug festival. :(;)

    Game enhancement request:
    - Update in car sound for GT3 Porsche, almost unbearable.
    - GT3 and GT4 cars just don't handle as I'd expect. Hard to explain, but they just float, don't seem to stick like these should.
    - Add a standalone/round speedometer/tach to the HUD that can be centered on hood view. Ala, PC2.
    - Add a set up app like PC2 to help average people set up their cars.
    - Save function for off-line games.
    - Once you have a driver rating system, make it a very large penalty for leaving race early!
    - Add Steam Friend Requests in game, suggest same place as VOTE TO KICK.
    - Allow Multiplayer Host to Kick Players that are "crashers" and can't come back for that session only.
    - Add Mandatory Pit announcement to top of screen when waiting the 2 minutes to "Ready" for a race. Along the top there is Weather, Wind, Temp, Fuel, TOD, Track, laps, etc. please add to let us know if mandatory pit is required.
    - Car paint booth so we can drive our own custom cars.

    Based on Game Build: 1.1.4
    Request Title: Ability to select specific car models within class when selecting opponents + how many cars to have in each class
    Description: Allow the player to select specific car models within a class as opponents (eg in a P1/GT3 race only selecting the Ginetta as the P1 opponents instead of also including the Metalmoros), and allow the player to edit how many cars in a specific class they want (such as having only 5 P1s and 15 GTs)
    Benefits: More realistic grids depending on the type of racing, as well as simply helping player preference on what cars they want to race.

    I want more weather options, specifically the ability to set starting track conditions. Starting a race on a wet track while its semi sunny out is alot of fun.

    Also I wonder if selectable and adjustable in car settings for TC, engine map and ABS is planned for ams2?

    Building on CatAstrophe05's idea, I think it would be really cool to have a custom class option.

    Take Group A for example (also imagine it with more cars), what if we could split it into multiple classes? We could make our own custom championships with one "class" being RS500s and Skylines, another "class" being BMWs and another "class" being Honda Civics. I see this being useful as the GT3, Group C, etc. content is expanded.

    (Yes, I've been watching a lot of early 90's Japanese Touring Car Championship videos on YouTube lately.)

    Please remove "return to main menu" button when switching sessions. Happens so often I accidentally presses it and then you're screwed

    Idk if anyone else has suggested this or not, but can the P1 class either needs split into DRS capable and non-DRS capable classes? The Metal Muros are great, but there is no reason to use anything other than the Honda or Chevy variants given they have DRS. The Ginetta P1 feels amazing to drive, but it can't compete with it's movable aero competition.

    I would quite like to see fire being implemented? Since reliability was a big problem in the older classes of cars it would be cool to see. I don't have any knowledge in game development so I may unknowingly be asking for something that's quite hard to do but I know that older sims have done it in the past like GTR2 and GPL. It would be nice to see in a modern sim.:)

    Based on Game Build: 1.1.4.5
    Request Title: Additional character space for game lobby names & description box for overviews of the purposed race session.
    Description: Expand the amount of space for the lobby titles/names. Add some sort of a description "text box" that the game host can use to provide more information about the purposed race session.
    Benefits: As with Project Cars 2, there is a lack of clarity as to what you might be expecting when you join an online lobby. A simple description text box with a 100-150 character limit would be enough to write a useful description of the game expectations. I actually think this would be REALLY useful as a lot of times a simple location to type description notes into helps clarify expectations of what the lobby is running. Yes you can scan the fields for most of that info, but having a custom description field would make things a lot more flexible with regards to hosting sessions.

    Examples below:

    Example 1: "XYZ race night. Track list: Interlagos, Brands Hatch, Imola, Brathurst"
    or
    Example 2: "Welcome to XYZ online race lobby. Race clean, damage on, 1 mandatory pitstop, tire wear accelerated."
