GRID Autosport Feedback


Recommended Posts

Hi again,

After reading through a number or praise and gripe sessions about GA, I must agree with near all that Stringue comments on in June 2015. I especially would love to see wet track or rain conditions included as an update and the availability to have the pits at hand. I often set up single races with numerous laps and to get over half way through a race and have some stupid AI take me out, just to have to restart the whole race instead of limping the car to the pits for a quick repair and keep racing is just lacking.

I am sure that others have mentioned this as well but seeing an AI collect a wall in front of me that would have normally totalled the car and killed the driver, yet continues the drive away without so much as slowing down where I get a minor tag and my steering is damaged does get very frustrating at times. Just something to keep in mind for future Grid releases.

Don't get me wrong, still a great game but there are some issues that need to be considered to keep in touch with Project Cars, Forza and yet to see what Gran Turismo bring to the table.

First of all I am fun of simulators. (Always hard difficulity level, Race Driver 3 AI on 110% never less)
In many prereviews I was reading that TOCA Race Driver 3 (2006) is coming back (TOCA 2 and Race Driver3 2006 where the best SIM games what codemasters made - driving phisics. In TOCA RC3 you need to switch on "gravel traps" and other stuff there to get realy good driving modeling, without this is DAMMED ARCADE - surly most players were driving without gravel traps). In grid I thought that if I will switch off all assists game will be demanding and will have good driving model. IT IS NOT. It is realy arcade, but only connection with old TOCARC3 what I can see is big range of cars, races eetc. I will bet if dirt rally programmers team would do GIRD Autosport Phisics, then it would be much better, because Dirt Rally is quite good not easy game. Where you can feel that you are driving 1,5 ton car not the paper box. rather hard to drive without steering wheel. THATS IT!!!
I suggest to take old good TOCA RC3 or TOCA 2 from archive of old server (surly codemasters has a copy) instal it and try to drive. Old programmers from phisics were very good. DO NOT FORGET TO SWITCH ON GRAVEL TRAPS in RC3. without gravel traps game is arcade- unakceptable driving phisics

AI and race driving tactics are focused not on tactical overtaking and knowledge but on quite brutal driving style, what can confirm for example setups for second team driver (defend-he will push cars from track when somebody will try to overtake, Attack-better not to tell...hell). 
So game AI are not so smart in smooth nice tactical driving like it was in RC3 or TOCA2, its always better to push somebody out of the track. In old good RC3 you and AI were getting penalities and warnings for cuting the track and agresive driving

In my opinion from codemasters the best climat was in TOCA 2 and RC3, because to make good lap time you needed to drive 500laps on one trackto learn everything, so during the race time where opponents were siting on your tail you could feel higher blood pressure because you knew that one....only onle mistake will cost of loosing all points. And more over driving model was not easy and on hard mode every cars were siting on bumpers so close to each other, it was very 
stresful - but this is the climat of closed track racing....

RESUME: Autosport for me it would be good game, if it would have much better driving phisics even copied form Race Driver 3 (2006). Autosport has a potential but handling the car is unakceptable for me.

I have hope that finaly Codemaster will make good game on Turning Cars Topic and GTRs with good driving morel. I think that after of big succes of Dirt Rally Codemasters has understood that the game can not be easy, more difficult game gives you more satisfaction when you will pass/win something. This is Dirt Rally....now waiting for asphalt racing....because autosport is not for me.

Good morning, someone could help me ? I'm from Brazil , have physical media game . Acquired two DLCs ( Sprint Pack and Road and Track Pack ) via PSN because I have the PS3 console. I downloaded and installed normally content . However I could not access it in the game. I am a big fan of Codemasters games but it makes me very frustrated . Is anyone having the same problem ? Do you have any solution for this?

Please use this thread for all your GRID Autosport Feedback, we look forward to hearing what you think!

Please give attention to that GRID Autosport does NOT work under Linux, hanging forever at the starting logo splash screen. Thanks.

Feral Interactive are responsible for the Linux port, so you'll have to take that up with them.
