Artificial in the context I put it with, means a behavior not correspondent to what your input on the wheel was.Sorry for picking on your post, its not really aimed at you.
It always makes me laugh when i see statements like this 'it feels artificial'.
I mean, you are sat in a chair, in your spare bedroom, in your Y fronts and slippers, playing a computer game/sim.
It cant get any more artificial.
In fact the very meaning of 'simulating' is being artificial.
