In the mid 2000's I was playing F1 99-02 challenge and I found the F1 1975 mod, and I fell in love with it. Not being a true F1 fan back then, that mod introduced me to the 1970s era of F1. I was hooked .. So now, in every sim I play, that seems to be the one thing I look for. At first I didn't think AMS2 would be right for me because it doesn't have the licenses for real team names from that era. I loaded up AC with the 1975 mod and thought this would be great. There are all the names.. Niki, James Hunt, etc.. ..I even downloaded all of the tracks of that era and they looked great! ...however.. No matter what I try to do, there is no way to race with the AI in AC using these old tracks. Everything "looks" great.. but in every race, the AI just destroy each other eventually. Even using CM/CSP where they can force the AI back onto the track.. it becomes a joke.. the AI pit/crash/pit/crash.. some tracks are better than others but for the most part that is the story.. so yes I get to see all of the familiar real life drivers on the roster, but they are all DNF's LOL... So I end up replacing half of the "real" tracks with something built into AC just so I don't have wreckfests.. this is fine.. but it is no longer fully realistic anyway.. So.. AMS2.. I gotta say.. the 1970s cars.. wow..I don't have to go download them and make sure I don't have a buggy version... I don't have to tweak them.. they are just... already there in the vanilla game... and they look fabulous, sound fabulous, and handle great. For all of the complaints about AI (and I have some of my own), they are 1000 time better than most other games.. Ok... I don't get to see "Niki Lauda" in the roster... however, the feel and the sound of these 1970s era cars.. it blows me away...and they actually race each other very well! When it comes to the "sights and sounds" of 1970s era F1.. AMS2 has it right.. sure we don't see "Marlboro" .. but.. in the end does it really matter? I will race against 20 other drivers... and compete in the 1970s.. with AMS2 I already have so many tracks built in.. I can race the dangerous Osterring... and I can actually race Monaco without ALL of the AI stacking up in a pile at the pit exit and finishing the race with 0 laps .. And the cars themselves look so much better. Sure maybe it's not a fair comparison. AMS2 is new.. AC with CM/CSP/SOL is still updated but the cockpits of the cars will never be as elegant as in AMS2. It's not really a fair comparison. In AC I have to jump through all kinds of hoops just to get the weather to change.. and it's not always crash free... AMS2 it is all built in... just there.. I haven't done anything with AMS2 other than drive it.. the other sims I have moved around so many files and tweaked so many things, checked so many boxes lol.. it is crazy...wondering if I will finish a race or some weird conflict will crash my game.. and yet when I run AMS2.. it loads.. and I race.. so simple.. Again, do I have issues with AMS2? Sure, the championship needs a little work.. I'm sure many things need to be tweaked.. but overall, this game is really... clean.. lol.. (weird choice of words, yah)... Anyway, I've decided that once custom championships come, I will try my hand at re-creating the 1975 F1 season. Sure I won't have all of the real names or tracks.. but I am confident the races will work, the AI will drive (and NOT all run straight into a wall on the first lap), and I will have a competitive series without having to search the internet for addons.. Sorry for my rant ..
