@KickUp Yeah I have to second this (I made a thread about it before I saw it had already been mentioned here), and hope it's a bug rather than by design because it would be seriously disappointing if this couldn't be changed. I'm fine with the Fearless preset being an "ultimate" difficulty where everything is turned off and can't be changed, all I want really is to be able to select 'Brutal' AI at lower, custom difficulty settings.
Its by design but that doesn't mean it can't be changed.
Ok, thanks for the reply! I've never known a racing game to say "you can have this higher AI difficulty, but *if and only if* you don't use these aids/assists/camera options" - or at least I can't think of another game that doesn't treat your driving experience and the AI separately in this way. And indeed the game already doesn't do this outside of Fearless - with Competent through to Tough AI all being freely selectable at Racer, Pro or Champion difficulties. So I do hope it can be changed! Again to be clear I appreciate the point of Fearless, and would understand if you were reluctant to change it given how it's integrated into the career - literally all I would like is the ability to have Brutal AI and bonnet cam selected at the same time, haha. So the option to select Brutal AI within Racer, Pro or Champion would be grand. :)
