Project CARS goes to California

Project CARS goes to California

Today being a bank holiday, we've gone for a drive along the Californian coast on board our freshly aquired Caterham. Sadly, it's just Project CARS we are talking about, but the good news is that we can share it here with you guys. Again, this was downsampled from 4K and captured in 1080p using our capture card, so enjoy!
Update: Formula B video added. The first start was captured with detailed grass set on high while the game was downsampled from 1440p. The second start footage was downbsampled from 4k without detailed grass.
Update 2 : BenBuja has just sent us another one of his 4K video and once again, it looks amazing.

Do they really turn the steering wheel that much in Formula B? It looks insane.

That's what I thought too. I think that's just because the in-game wheel does the exact same thing as mine - which is set at 900°. I don't think the wheels of F1/A/B/C cars are 900°.

My main problem with the wheel and hands in the game is the fact that the driver lets go of the wheel while driving high speed formula cars. Of course, the main problem is the wheel turning so much. In most racing cars the direction is pre-adjusted in the track setup so they never should turn that much.

You can watch any onboard lap at Monaco GP to see that they never stop holding the wheel through the Grand Hotel hairpin.

But I've never seen a serious racer that has a hand hovering while he controls the wheel with the palm of the other hand. That's only seen by incompetent street racers and such lol

Looks incredible, lovely and smooth. Thanks for the videos.
The A.I. looks a lot better than the earlier builds.

Stick the AI on 100% and your going to have a very tough time :)

The AI is the best part of the game. I'd go as far as saying that it's the best AI of any racing game (well, at least in some cars).

Depends on the track and types of cars (the first turn in Monaco is hard for the AI, and sometimes Fomrula A/B/C cars are a bit too aggressive and they cause accidents - involving the player when you're at the wrong place at the wrong time). Overall it's good though.

About the game

  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I wasn't really setting up any specific comparison at all. I said modern phones and many PCs. That's pretty vague. You can set whatever limits on that you want. (14 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Granted.. synthetic benchmarks are just that.. but in Geekbench 4 a Snapdragon 835 can outperform a Q9550.. which is definitely faster than the E6600. (30 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX My personal history of personal computing goes back to 8-bit computers. I think 2017 ARM CPUs are amazing. (32 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @droezelke: I said E6600.. and its single core performance in synthetic benchmarks is certainly comparable. But yes. You can go back to the 80s. I didn't say anything about them being modern. (32 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @GriftGFX: no, a snapdragon 835 does not have computing power of a Q6600 (9 years old). Do you really want to go further in time to prove your statement made sense? (37 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And "many" isn't a specific number. There are many 8088s :D (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX But the exponential rate of progress means that you don't have to go back too far to make that true. A lot of the progress here was done in our lifetimes. That's amazing. (1 Hour ago)
