To be honest, it's not as bad as it sounds. At first I was a little annoyed about it, but in gameplay it's not a huge deal. It gives you a chance to set your pit strategy and relax before hitting back on the track. It will be nice to eventually have fully manual pitstops but it's really not as big of a deal as it seems.Well that's a shame for a game which is a month before release!
I think having full manual detailed pit stops in an arcade game is also pointless. P cars will hardly be the sim of choice in my opinion. OK for offline single player I suppose.I'm sure a lot of people like the auto system for pitting ,because pit stops will always be faultless , but if you have done a lot of league were you have to control your own pit / speed ,hitting pit limiter at the last minute , making sure that you stop in the correct position , having to select the correct tyre compound not speeding out of the pit so you don't get a penalty --- this is what can win or loose the race sometimes and can just make the game that little bit more exciting .
Also in projects cars you can save many different setups for pit stop , so on the fly you can select your wet setup as you enter the pits or what ever setup you think will suit the changing conditions .
IMO having auto pit is pointless .
I honestly don't know. It's playable now as I play it most days. However, there is some polish that it's missing but to be honest, they could polish it for 3 more years if they wanted. It will be released soon and they will continue to enhance and support it for some time. The current plan was for patches and DLC for two years before they focus on the next generation of Project CARS. I don't think anything is all set in stone as sales numbers will drive the choices after release.Let's turn this into something productive. Do you think pcars will be delayed again or can you safely say, it is now ready? I don't think I could handle another delay!
