    This comment:
    ...would suggest otherwise. :D Either that or there's no good drivers around here. :p

    Well, a lot of them might be excited for next challenges. But if they care about development, and tiny details about sophisticated effects of water is other question. Maybe no one is interested about "behind the curtains", it will just be fun and believable, or not. Many might find it unbelievable when laptimes in wet circuit will get slower by more than 10 seconds, or much more.

    In my point of view simracing (circuit) without rain is like only half of it. Night is nasty too IMO, but it is mostly only visibility stuff. IRL life night is very annoying when windshield is scratched and/or dirty, and almost imposible to see when cars are coming towards you, their headlights are blinding and then almost all you can see is them and outside white line, and then if it is raining, very damp... saloon filter gets soaked, windshield starts getting very foggy... oh well lol thats tough, but none of that I would expect in sophisticated racing.

    I hope this is for the offline mode, I don't want to be "a driver", I want to be my self (real names on online please, not nicknames). Also custom liveries like GT Sports or Forza would be nice to have, at least something like iRacing with an external app (tradingpaints is amazing, the best thing on iRacing, and is free xD) to sync liveries before race.

    Weather will allow a proper simulation of the real life season, say it it rained for quali IRL then the quali for that round can be simulated the same, this is cool and accurate

    Dealing with changing weather conditions is a big part of racing, and also interesting when it comes down to decisions like whether to change to wets or stay on slicks. Simulating that adds a good deal of interest for me.

    These are both accurate statements but that doesn't mean I need to like rain or be excited about it. :) Doesn't bother me in the least if other people are excited about it nor am I against having it included, just not something I personally plan to use very much. Day-to-night transitions is what has me the most excited. :)

    I wonder if there will be random weather option, because thats exactly how it would be the most realistic.

    Real time weather would be the most exciting for me. Having to keep a close eye on the up to date forecast and guessing at which tires to use or change to in the pits would be quite exciting based on real information. A game integrated official weather app would be great:cool:

    You mean acquiring real life present day weather data? If you saw RDs interview part 2, they discussed this... and it's not realistic, Marco was in Hungaroring 2 weeks ago, and they had to reschedule laser scanning because there was snow. Races of Blancpain are not held in snow. So if you play the game in winter months, there should be always cold, possibly ice and snow. Which is not realistic, the whole idea of picking weather from Internet IRL data (like pCars 2 and Content Manager does it) is imo flawed from start. Blancpain GT is raced in summer/spring months, and it should not allow using winter months, because snow won't be even simulated (Marco said this in the video) and it's not realistic at all.

    Should be randomized, based on that months (where the race is in Blancpain calendar, not the month we are currently living in) average weather records, in that climate/geographical location. And allow choosing (in case user/server wants to use a custom date) only months where race could really happen, for example only months inside Blancpain calendar. And then give forecast based on that (in game), but nothing to do with real present day forecasts. Connecting the two (current day IRL weather + some race circuit) was always illogical. I might work if everything was simulated (snow, ice.. in pCars 2 they are largely a gimmick) but even then, the Blancpain isn't in conditions like that

    One reflexion I have about what they said of WEC: dieselgate screwed up (like one of the bosses of VW said) so many things at so many levels.

    Im not gonna explain why there are so many other things that are much more important, because it's obvious. Just gonna say would have been a dream to have a WEC licensed game by Kunos.

    Not had a chance to read the whole thread, but I guess from the interview summary the physics and handling characteristics match or ideally exceed those of AC?
