    Animated pit crew for the player only? Less work for the machine. I mean 43 stock cars, each with 6 over the wall is potentially 258 animated figures in addition to everything else. That could be a load on the system. Back to the news.

    You dont need to have all of them appearing at the same time tho, 4~8 teams around your stall with the current random animated folks already in the pit lane would be immersive enough. Ofc an option to have it all with lower details could also work (especially for broadcasts). The key word here is "option", it's weird that people think there is only one way to have this stuff.

    I think iRacing shows, that it is certainly possible to have proper pit animations. The problem is, that it is a huge workload wich again would add something to the game and give it an even more unfinished state, because let's face it, it is allmost impossible to ship those animations for all cars at once. A lollipop man would be a good start though, or some simple animated signs as shown in IMSA or other racing series.

    Honestly a pit crew in the level of GTR2 would be better than the nothing we have today and probably very light on today's hardware even if you made crews from all the teams appear lol
    But then that's just basics of the basics, considering what GP4 did animated crews should not be a big deal, we should be seeing animated repairs, crews pushing the car (especially when there are too many cars in the pit lane, i.e FCY) and tows 16 years later

    The biggest question I have out of this is does Marcel currently have a beard or not? On this forum he does, on luminus photo he doesn't.

    Is there a blog or a writeup about the TGT game development? Surely, it can't be a hardcore sim? Does it have better graphics and a simpler UI than rFactor2 in order to appeal to a mainstream audience?

    Some say it is not important, but these kind of things are attractive to bring more players to the play and watch game, besides it give us more immersion, especially using VR. rFactor 2 still is the best sim, but I think it should value his own product more, doing teaser and launch videos, not only for the cars, but also for the features. Studio397 has proven they are able to do it and the community too. The features which are missing to me, are animations, enviroment features and better damage model.

    Mocap a team of people acting out a pitstop but as individual animations for each guy. Then you can get them to work on large or small cars. Also have a few separate "running around the car" animations for the guys that have to run to the outer side of the cars where one is larger arc and one is smaller arc to run around bigger or smaller cars. Simples!!!

    :D Just kidding. No idea what im talking about.
