The lack of mod support for Project Cars killed that game for me.

On 12/4/12 I made a post about the game.
On 12/5/12 I edited that post.

In one day I knew the game sucked. Was being developed poorly. And warned others to stay away from it.

FWIW, Assetto isn't perfect.

It's impossible to model digressive shocks like xidas with only two linear damping curves, as a quick example.

It was fully disappointing. The graphics are good, the visuals look great, cars are pretty, weather looked great. I was so excited for it. It came out, I played it for 5 minutes, realized the tire model was fucked and the cars drove much worse than gran turismo or forza and felt nothing like a real car. I then purchased assetto corsa and have been much happier. I also have Dirt Rally, but I suck *** at that. Hands are too slow.

Spend some time playing Dirty Rally. Once you get good, it becomes a LOT more fun.

The amount of attention needed to play that game is unlike anything I've ever played before.

I much prefer AC over Project CARS.

I signed up for Project CARS very early on in development and got a copy of the game and 150% of my money back for being an investor or something, so that scores it a +1. It's a "pretty" game but the force feedback is so dull compared to AC.

No sim is, but Assetto is the best one out there atm as an all around package. iRacing is a close second, but that game is a completely different experience. AC is also being developed by a very small team, last I heard the staff was only 10 people.

Honestly, rFactor is better than anything being discussed in here. I've never played RF2, but I can only assume it's just as good or better than the first.
Edit*
Live for speed is also very good, maybe even better than rfactor.

I need to try AC to compare.

Um, WHAT?

rfactor was good 10 years ago, not so good anymore. rFactor 2 is a bust, and that meh pricing model. AC appears to be the current standard, and is where the modding community shifted it's focus to after rfactor. rFactor 2 has been out for a few years, while the physics are excellent , everything else would lead you to believe it's only just been released. Lack of official content, aesthetically inferior, and uses directx 9? Really? Good luck with that.

AC's only been out for about a year, rFactor 2 has been out for 2 years. AC is a more well rounded product for the price atm. What made rfactor 1 so great has made AC great, excellent mod support / content.

Srsly. this is an assetto corsa thread, and you say RFactor is better than anything being discussed here, but you haven't tried AC?

I also said live for speed is good too and that game is old as dirt.

I'd much rather play that then some of the new games coming out calling themselves simulators.

Live for speed is pitiful, isn't that the one where you pay 10 euros a month for fantasy land cars? I guess at least I could run it on my toaster, though.

Yeah, they don't have the rights to use real cars. The driving, physics, setup is very realistic. The cars behave really realistic.
AC is still on sale, i'll buy it tonight.
