    What do you think about lap time based AI, is this possible or plausible?

    If we had AI based on our own lap time this would mean closer racing for each individual track. You could have the front of the packs pace based on your best times with the rest based on incremental steps down from your best. This would mean you’d have to be at your best to win, also a difficulty setting could be used to increase their pace a percent at a time higher than your best to make things more difficult but they would also improve as you do.

    I find that with the current setup I find it difficult to find a good setting for each track and some races I can end up in the middle by myself unable to catch the front runners but leaving the rest behind.

    It's already in the RRE and it works well. But I think it'll take too long.
    And as I see it, ACC is developing MP more.

    Sorry but I don't really like this idea, its precipitously close to rubber banding which is downright annoying in other games once you realize thats whats happening.

    As this game goes for being as pure a sim as possible, the reality is IRL winning every race is damn near impossible, and sometimes you end up mid pack and can't get ahead despite dropping some opponents. And I say this as someone who comes in DFL more often than not.

    Grand prix legends had that. And it was the most frustrating thing ever, no matter how consistent or fast you were, the IA always won. The only way to win the IA was to start very very slow and lap after lap increase slightly your pace, the last lap of the race should had been your fastest lap, that doing things that way ensured that the IA always was gonna be a bit slower than you.

    I do this, but within the existing system. Just do a 20 min quick race at your track of choice at XX AI level. At the completion of the race, check the winner's best lap and compare to yours - adjust accordingly. I'm more interested in sorting out the AI's pitting behavior. They seem to pit with 3-4 lap's worth of time left in their stint. If you don't pit with them, then you lose the close racing as the leaders get spaced out halfway around the track from you......

    Interesting thoughts, ultimately I was just after closer racing as personally I would find this more enjoyable. Sometimes being an accurate simulation doesn’t translate to a fun race when there’s no one near you.
