    Why wasn't it a "limitation" 6 years ago on the Xbox 360 version of Grid?  There simply is no excuse.  Another thing I noticed in the video is the crash comparison at the end.  In my opinion, the crash in the original Grid, at 03:17, looked and reacted way more realistically compared to Autosport.

    graphic settings for both are maxed ? cause grid1 seems the new generation compared... btw the old good grid1 developer team is elsewhere, so we will never seen again a grid game(sequel) like the grid1 style.
    They can do better, or can do worse. What we had into grid1 is gone. 
  2. first patch with streaming text chat + spectator mode from inside the lobby + reset steam region lock to global for everyone.

    if you can do that... dunno, maybe next year with a brand new autosport2 we will able to have a full feature multiplayer.
    Honestly i cant bear playing a game by mute all and chat through the steam layer with friends only. Steam chat is friend-to friend based and not something really part of the game.

    So you've got an opinion on a game that isn't even out yet.
    yes, why not, for the same reason CM think is enough watch videos and images instead of a Demo of the game.
    When they will release a demo i will have a demo based opinion. At now my opinion is based to all info i have read here on forum and videos.
    Is not all bad, to be clear, i like this game. I like how they fix corner cut penalties and the effort to reintroduce some stuff like cockpit view and a good handling.
    But the game online lack of important stuff like streaming text chat and spectate mode. Plus a region lock that not help game longevity.
    This is just an opinion. And something more... because don't forget, this game is related and connected to grid2 even if much difference are introduced. And online mode is almost a copy and paste from grid2.
    Tell me i'm wrong and you make me happy, cause i just searching for the game fun like we had into grid1.

    Online is always like an unstable balance system, because is self-powered and self-influenced.
    Split people by assumption will be populated for divine reason is just ignore how online dynamics work.
    Online population work like an unstable balance with ripple effect. Split people=pull fuel from the system.
    Without fuel online will run for inertia some months. 
    Even an horse can run without eat. This not mean he do not need food.
  5. if codies care to a longlife online multiplayer is better edit this no-sense region setup.
    Workaround to London in not the answer, big part of people ignore that and will not edit anything.
    This mean that game will be desert soon by lack of online players.
    Gaming industry today care about split everything to raise money sales.
    So the grid1 sequel will become:
    -10 DLC
    -Grid2+all DLC 
    -Grid2 with part of the sh1t fixed (Autosport)
    -Autosport extended with no region limitations or better a brand new game sold for full price.

    Everything based on single old gen engine. (i would understand a new generation game for that timing and price)

    This is today the only way to sale something. like cod every year or battlefield.

    I not make any preorder, i will wait untill the game release and a good amount of opinion here. Then i will still wait the right offer.
    There is not hurry, specially if this game will be another paper flame like grid2. (online speaking).
  6. text chat + spectate mode

    this 2 make the online strong, without this i doubt multiplayer will be populated after 6months.
    And nothing of bad if the game is not funny to play like grid2... too bad instead if autosport will be funny, and you must digest void waiting, dead times and no-sense, this will be a online killer. 
    Nobody bear to play a game where half of the time you must stare a lobby window.
    Great side of grid1 was that, into the lobby you can start to watch the race untill u can play, and text chat with others.

    I wonder how much time will pass untill we will get the same stuff we already had 6 year ago.
    ...and beg for cockpit, and beg for handling, and region lock, for servers, for chat, spectate mode, track cut, or for a even online field without upgrade and tuning... i remember grid2 was released without best lap counter online... was basically a pointless racing... and everyone here again to beg for reintroduce that.

  7. With regards to region locking, there may be a glimmer of light in that I found somewhere doing a pre-order on the Steam (digital download) version, and was told via their live chat that the key is 'Global', in other words region free.  Whether this automatically means we get to see 'Global' online servers in MP,  I don't know.
    if confirmed would be another step forward to help online gameplay, lets hope good :)
  8. mmmm this silence not sound so good :)

    between a solid and longlive online and a short crazy paper flame there are few points.

    -1) is avoid dead times and waiting into the lobby to stare at windows nicks popup...
    someone said that can be solved with text chat and spectator mode.

    -2)Gather the max number of people inside the main public lobby, nobody after 2 months would like to play an empty rooms game or waiting for minutes to see player coming..
    someone said is better avoid to split people, so nothing region split, nothing region lock steam...

    after this 2 rules will work the gameplay only... (if the game is funny to play or not)

    not to be insistent, everyone here have a copy of grid2 on steam and everyone can check how much people are playing...
    before autosport announcement this number was most of the 24h times near to 0 (zero, o, null).
    Honestly, i would like to know if this autosport born with hope (so soon as possible the 1.0patch that introduce chat and spectator) and without region wall to workaround by edit my download region to london or something like that.

  9. If people were allowed to design fully custom liveries (like Forza) then this would have to be policed (like Forza). As there are always some idiots who think it's funny to put stuff on their cars that breaks XBox Live rules. IE nudity, bad language, sexual and drug references etc etc.There are similar rules for PS too. People get banned almost daily from Forza for stuff like this. I can't imagine Codies having the time or inclination to deal with that really.
    without moderation would be a nice and wild part of the game, and would be funny have some bad language and nudity on the bonnets...
    Or can be implemented a moderation system with racenet account and livery under approval, or some default wide range of pictures where you can use freely and upload the custom livery directly on the car ..
  10. is far better without corner cut penalty, that cause much more problems than right and justice.
    Who need that ? maybe the game is a crash-fest the same, but no, u cannot cut a little angle.
    If grass grip is enough increased don't need any penalty, u go off track, grip enough to be nothing of advantage.
