    It's to late for the 'no buy' it will have to be 'no damage no play' (that'll show them) :)

    Suspension damage and the likes would be more useful to us in a race. Visual damage not so much, but it looks cool.

    I wonder can they use some sort of particle effects (I'm assuming particle effects are easier to implement) to show small carbon shards flying just to give a visual clue you've tipped into someone enough to cause damage to your aero? There wouldn't need to be any visual change after the collision but it would make the collision look impressive.

    But from a drivers POV, you wouldn't see the shards so wouldn't be realistic having them thrown up at the windshield. Bumpers hanging loose, that kind of thing would be cool to see but contact damage can be a bummer if you're the innocent party.
    An overall mechanical damage model would be good in general, overrevving damaging the engine, damaging suspension abusing kerbs, that sort of thing would give a bit more jeopardy to races, especially endurance races.

    Dear Stefano Casillo, aka Lord Kunos.
    Thank you very much to You & all Kunos Team for the immense amount of enjoying time you gave to us with Assetto & Assetto Competizione.
    Please, add at least some little more amount of damage modelling regarding at least the kind of damage that permits to continue driving. Please add some more amount of modelling about the "dirt/obstacles" that a driver can find on its way during race: for example dust on track, oil spilled from other cars, small carbon car body parts. IMHO even a small amount of the aforementioned items would really improve the sense of "being" there. We are not asking for wreckfest, we only want a more "dynamic" environment.
    Best regards !!!!!

    It would be fantastic to have advanced visual damages ;)
    A plus for immersion with saftey car.

    has there been any word on a damage model yet?

    i don't see why ppl are begging for visual damage, it's meant to be a realistic sim so i'd imagine it should have realistic damage too, otherwise it would just be bumper cars online

    To me, exactly these little "bits and pieces" like insects on the windscreen would be much more important for the immersion than a full damage model and damage visualization.

    Ok, great !
    So the "saftey car" is a fantasy ?

    How. Insects on a screen isn't really related to a damage model anyway, that's dirt buildup and stuff.

    This part put me in the wrong way (understanding). Sorry, I'm french.
    Don't pull a face like that, it's ugly : )

    The same debate is being held among rain or not, etc...
    For me, it's simple. In real life, we have damages, and this is the reason why we have saftey car, so in term in sim, we should have this thing.
    It's on aspect to deal with, and for "destruction derby boys", there are rules and consequence (SR for example).

    Iracing prepare something with their new damage model, and they have the ranking system with rules, and it works.

    It's only a question of ressources (and priority).

    The only thing, maybe be too much, is Mechanical failures. But it would be interesting in a short term as experience. In a long term, maybe frustrating.

    What if you could magically click an in game button to turn damage on or off.
    You could label it Visual Damage on or off.
    I know, its a really amazing idea I was keeping to myself, but now its out there.

    Project cars 2 has that, where you're able to change the kind of damage on the server

    I'm unsure about the safety car. I think in the future there's potential there for sim racing as an e-sport to start challenging real Motorsports for popularity. Things like the fact the race isn't held up by a safety car could be a selling point rather than a strike against sim racing.

    Safety cars just aren't necessary in sim racing and while sim racing needs to follow the real world I don't think it needs to take all the bad stuff from it too. Safety cars just aren't fun for anybody, especially in a competitive environment.

    Even in the real world they are moving away from the safety car towards virtual methods.

    Visual damage is like getting a flake in your ice cream cone, a nice addition but not having it isn't going to ruin your ice cream cone. I'm all for it, but not having it isn't going to impact negatively on my enjoyment of the game.

    Visual damage would be cool but it would satisfy too much wreckers in MP.
    We wouldn't want to give them that.
    I prefer sacrify that for the safety sake of our MP sessions.
  17. It is better that wreckers vent now because there will be no more room for them in the future with the rating system imho. So welcome to the visual damage.

    How about a visual aid on a damaged cars label showing the amount of damage the car is carrying?
    How about a visual aid on a cars label showing if it's a "WRECKER"?

    For the "WRECKER", we needs rules to manage that.
    Said that Visual Damage would satisfy too much wreckers in MP, it's (for me) approaching the problem the wrong way.

    I find it in blancpain FCY and Safety cars do add to the race quality since they bring the whole grid back together. Ofc if you are leading car you hate it but people on the back love it.
    And crowd loves close racing so it is good.
