  1. If you don't care about the bad graphics, why do you care about this thread? Go play the game.

  3. Lol at those pathetic reflections in Grid 2019 😂😂😂

    Watered down damage.

    The quote I remember was specifically about visual damage.

    @Bluestig Did you find the quote from AC developer?

    I haven't tried. I miss the old forums. These forum softwares are too "advanced" for their own good. I wish I could find the reddit comment from a developer that said license does not prevent damage. 😞

    No, it's like quoting someone from this thread claiming it's Ferrari's fault. Evidence would be a direct discussion with a developer in an interview or social media. Ferrari cars have damage in Project Cars 2.

    @Sir.Smoke That's not proof? It's quoting from the rumor mill with nothing to substantiate the claims. It's from this article: https://web.archive.org/web/20120702115225/http://downloadxboxgames.com/2012/03/01/test-drive-ferrari-racing-legends-xbox-360-preview/ The article doesn't include a source for that. And that game (I remembered it as "Ferrari Project"), had the same damage model as Shift 2, as it was based on the same engine.

    @Bluestig All this time on this thread, I've only been discussing the visual aspects of damage, unless stated otherwise. "Better" is subjective. To me it's not "better". What I am looking for is realistic looking damage, not mesh deformation. Burnout Paradise' damage model is not bad, actually. But still, it's an old game, so imagine how detailed it could be these days. But Grid is not that. Grid is a very simplistic model which we've had in one form or another since NFS4: mesh deformation (with some few detachable elements on Grid, like hood and doors). That to me is not "leagues better", no. I don't know why you go back to Gird 1 and 2 all the time. Look at Dirt Rally 2.0, it also has a much more advanced damage model than Grid 2019. So does F1. F1 has a very good damage model.

    GRID Modding

    @UP100 Sure, yes. Even hardcore sims are going this route, so they can milk their communities for that sweet DLC $$$. 🙄

    To me it's more realistic, and thus better. Yes, you can bang the car more in Grid, but that doesn't make it automatically better or realistic.

    We've had this discussion in this thread. It's not true. Grid's damage system is very simplistic. Yes, it looks like the car is more destroyed, but it's not realistic. It's a deformed mesh, whereas here you have different materials being deformed differently. It's not perfect, but in my eyes, it is more realistic than Grid.

    @Bluestig Even if we disagree about how good the PC2 damage model is, at least we can agree that if a car can be damaged this much, there isn't much more a contract can forbid developers: At the end, that Porsche looks like a Nissan. 😂

    New projects, some ideas for Codemasters.

    Yes, true. I fall in the middle to sim category too, so I like Forza Motorsport but can't stand Horizon, I like Dirt 4, even if not hardcore like Rally (I love Rally too), but hated Dirt 2 (3 was better). Definitely I have mellowed my sim-only stance due to what you say, niche getting more niche. 😞 I really disliked the Grid 2019 driving model. I really felt like a boat in the tutorials. In the tutorial missions, you drive a prototype, a stock car and a GT car. They honestly felt like the same boat. I then used Cheat Engine (😂) to hack the amount of cash I had to buy the F1 car. And it too felt like a boat. How anyone can claim this is less arcade than Grid 1 is beyond me.
