    Now that the Xbox One patch is out, I'm curious to know what PS4 and PC players who also use gamepads are using for steering sensitivity settings?

    Wheel users can post, too, but please specify whether you're using a wheel or pad when you post your settings.

    Thanks!

    For this and a few other PC games I'm using an MSI Force GC30, which is kind of a newer (and good) iteration/clone of an Xbox360 gamepad (actually seen by the OS as an X360 controller).

    I use steering on analog left stick, throttle and brake on R/L analog triggers respectively.
    ATM these are my controller sensitivity settings:
    • Acceleration sensitivity --------- 5%
    • Acceleration dead zone -------- 0%

    • Brake sensitivity ------------------ 5%
    • Brake dead zone ----------------- 0%

    • Steering sensitivity -------------- 15%
    • Steering dead zone ------------- 0%

    FWIW, currently using rider assistances as listed here:

    Duc..I've tried steering sensitive that low but find I sacrifice to much small correction ability, I'm yo-yoing between 20% and 30% at the mo.

    Is it better to have accel sensitivy that low? I've never run less than 10 (same with brakes). Oh well I'm off to test your settings! :D

    Edit....well throttle and brake are better than what I had 40% accel and 15% brake, but I couldn't get on with that low a steering sensitivity.

    @ D.I.: I guess it also depends on gamepad, and perhaps not just personal preference...

    .......are you using an Xbox360 gamepad for Windows PC?

    This MSI Force GC30 I got recently has analog thumb-sticks that feel like those on the XboxOne gamepad, meaning, they have less resistance feel compared to the Xbox360 (wired) gamepad I was using before (no longer functioning), and why I'm using this low(er) sensitivity for steering. :)
    I clearly remember the Xbox360 gamepad having stiffer analog thumb-sticks, with a wee more resistance (that allows more precision, IMHO) and for that one I feel that, yeah, maybe using something like 25% or even 40% would be better for the steering sensitivity.

    This MSI Force GC30 has analog triggers that are very similar to those on the Xbox360 gamepad, and it'd be right to say that it still feels very good up to to 20% sensitivity for throttle, though I definitely prefer less than 15% for (front) brake - maybe because I'm ham-fisted! :D

    yup 360 pad here, good points, didn't think of that, but I've gone with your throttle and brake settings. I'm a bit ham fisted too, never really got on that much with gamepads. Although much better now than I used to be.
