I just did a new clean install of pCARS since I wanted to make sure I was getting the unadulterated last build (jan 16 2015) . I am really impressed by some of the cars and even as very low settings the game looks great on my rig. However, I eventually did a couple of races and SPA and Hockenheim and I was a bit disturbed by the AI behaviour. Putting it as plain as I can, the cars around me at the start and in packs during the race behave more like a bunch of 13 years old on Open Servers than even the most unruly league I have ever raced with, let alone RL racing. At the start, (100% strength) the cars behind me drove as if I weren't there. If a car in front slowed down and I could pass it, I had 100% chance of getting hit hard from behind. meanwhile, other cars were cutting corners, going on Sunday drives until they hit the barriers, then rejoining at an angle without caring about the other cars on track. The better behaved AI simply shifted from right to left and back through SPA's top straight, sometimes wrecking other cars or simply losing control and smashing against the barriers in what seemed to be a crazy way to find a hole in the pack. That may be OK up to T1 at the start, but for the entire race? To me the effect looked more like what racing is in the mind of a pre-teen than real life. No driver, regardless of type of racing, would simply take over by pushing the car in front off track. Cars that wasted time hitting barriers, came back with a vengeance and solidly hit me in the middle of a turn. Once I made a great pass on another car while blocking the inside line for it. No problem, the other car simply drove on the grass, lost time because of bumps and grass, so it simply rejoined the track by T-boning me and sending me against another barrier. I know the there is still time until release, but I am a bit concerned. Concerned that I won't be able to enjoy my SP races, but also concerned that a log of kids will buy this game and seeing how the AI races, they will rightly decide that it is the right way to do it. Anyone else have had this experience or am I missing some magic setting in the AI panel? I left it at default because I figured most people will do the same.
