    Community Request List [For Developers]

    This was created by me in the beta and I will also create another one for the main game. I request a sticky by a moderator and notification to the Developers to see this list.

    If you see a lot of suggestions, which are not in the list, and which were suggested in the posts below and want me, the community, or the devs see them, post a reply containing the list of these suggestions. It is better to have them all in one place rather than scattered around the topic after all.


    This game was supposed to be created by the community and so countless topics and posts have been made since day one. I've made a summary here of those really needed and essential features we want to see in game.

    This will save a lot of trouble of players (no need to post in 145687 topics for the same thing) while it will also help the developers see it more easily and keep the forum clean without any double posts. I can understand that the developers can be confused by so many posts about so many features, so by making it clear I hope to get those in the game to improve the game-play and overall fun.

    Now everyone (including the developers) can add/comment all the requested features in one topic which provides a great and functional feedback. So let's make it hot people!

    Please note that the order of the features might not match the priority.

    The most important ones, in addition to the easy-to-make ones that should have been in game already (but for some unexplained reasons still aren't), are marked with in colour.

    If you think I forgot something that should be here, go ahead and tell me. And I beg you, do not make harsh or insulting posts towards the developers or the community. Also, don't argue here. Let's keep this topic nice and clean.



    The list gets updated often, so make sure to check it regularly. The suggestions are arranged in various specific categories. PLEASE WHEN suggesting or reporting bugs, make sure to do it in an orderly and well-constructed manner. Use brief sentence with a small explanation. If you are going to address many points please use bullets points or any of the sort. You may use videos or pictures to support your points. Let’s keep this up!!

    Nice post, good job

    I think there should be a sticker option with layers. That would be awesome

    Here's a couple that stick out for me:

    Rubber-banding AI. In every race against the computer the other cars will always be right on my *** despite all shortcuts, corner cutting, or our respective car levels.. A level 80 should not be able to catch up to my 300+. You can see them on the radar magically rushing ahead in a matter of 2 or 3 seconds. This doesn't make racing fun, it makes it frustrating.

    Our in-game profile picture needs to be linked to our forum pic or anything other than the blurry shots of our Uplay 3D avatar. First, they 're ugly. More importantly they are terrible at identifying players when they all kind of blur together as the same indistinct cutesy avatar.

    No session player cap limit increase? Add it. That and being able to set multiple waypoints are my biggest desires.

    Custom in-game avatars instead of the ugly Uplay ones would be nice as well.

    I think the ability to remove spoilers on street and perf spec would be a big improvement on the huge mandatory carbon wings.

    EDIT: This one is more important than the spoilers. Pagani Huayra is really bugged, performance spec does burnout for first 5* gears and tops out at 335km compared to my lower top speed V8 Vantage that hits 367. Horrible performance for the money.

    Button mapping would be nice, as of now i can't use the flapper paddles on my wheel for manual trans (on the xbox 360). Also the game does'nt seem to recognize my H-shifter unless I'm missing something.
