These developers and great, imo. I have supported with the purchase of the season pass, because if they develop one game over a long period of time, it is easily as valuable as a game being release 3 or more times with minor changes (and overhyped new features which are often useless).

One request, notice for track penalty doesn't need to stay in my face for too long - no need to rub it in that I made a mistake ;)

Has anyone else had an issue with adjusting the AI strength or choosing car liveries?

I've had very limited time to try AMS2, so I've no idea if there is some preset that locks the AI strength, but even if that was the case, that shouldn't affect choosing a livery.

It's been many updates, and the karts are still unusable in race weekend scenarios because of various bugs and physics problems (Karts breaking before even leaving the garage, tires literally exploding, brake temperatures going into invalid number territory). I get Reiza are a small team of developers, but this is the kind of thing I would have been okay with in early access. We're in v1.0 and beyond. This shouldn't be happening.

karts works very well here, but for sure, they will fix these problems that you are facing as soon as they can.

I wanna a damn solid championship mode not more and more and more content. I have not enough time in 1 life to play all those content :confused: but at least i wanna start to play the game ..... you know already - no championship mode = no playtime :D
yeah. Right.
All content creators , graphic artists and other not coding people should stop working until coders have ended the work on championship modes.
GREAT IDEA. :thumbsup:

I feel sarkasm ;)

It feels not right creating DLCs and more and more before some "main/key" features are not ready. But its not Reiza only, nearly everybody do so today. But i must not find this good.

Generally speaking the community has indeed been patient and supportive of our efforts so far, and in turn there are things we can and have also been patient with - we haven´t charged existing users for the first DLC up to the point it was released - not an easy financial decision to make - because it seemed appropriate to balance out their support while the game was still going through growing pains; we also stuck with our Early Access pricing and not added the planned bump for the same reason.

Now we can´t, and have no reason to be patient or hold back releasing content for a couple of simple reasons: while you and others may not find a particular release worthwhile yet, or even have a negative reaction to a new DLC while the game still has work to be done elsewhere, fact is one doesn´t necessarily compete with the other; modellers and artists do their own thing, and we do have a large track team who are specially profficient - they can´t improve other parts of the game, and the work they are delivering now will have been comissioned months ago.

More importantly, other users do find valuable to have this content added to the game, and many loyal users who have already paid for it rightfully expect it to be delivered more or less to the schedule we proposed, and certainly when it´s ready.

So while you may be right DLC releases often create some level of negative reactions, by and large it isn´t a rational one as per the perspective above - we are even making the point of only releasing DLCs when the game itself receives a substantial update, to demonstrate one doesn´t necessarily compete with the other.

Yes, i understand what you want, but development team nowadays are splitted in many different special jobs like in any other producing companies. An artist mostly has no knowledge of writing some lines of code and programmers sometimes have the same skills like a 5 year old kid, if its on painting or CAD.
They work parallel, not serial. And if the framework is good enough, adding ready to use content created by the artists could be 10 minutes of coding, but the championship you want immediatly could last months until ready.
So not releasing content would not free any resource and accelerate anything on the functional part of the game.
Thats i wanted to point to.

I like what the developers are doing. Keep up the great work. I just do quick races or time trials in racing games,
Pick a track, car, and go for it. I dont have the time to do all these championship features.
I do agree the AI GoKarts need some work to do good racing with them. i will try them again after these updates.

I think AMS 2 is a great SIM. REIZA does a great job and it's amazing what they have done with this engine. I drove the pick-up at Silverstone today against a 95AI. It was so much fun, the AI responded and fought really well. I hope that many more people will see how good AMS2 is.
REIZA really deserved it.
