Having made a lot of laps of b17 its seems pretty solid but I do find the off track grip and rider VR behaviour when off-track a bit 'arcadish'. I appreciate that a few beta's back there was a big push to make off track excursions less punishing but I always considered the original a much better 'simulation'; you still had full control and could either 'save or lose' the situation.
Could a hardcore option be added to revert back to the original simulated off-track conditions rather than the current 'arcadey' model?
Please note that the off-track grip wasn't increased on purpose to make GP Bikes easier.
The extra grip is due to revised collision between tyre and terrain, in an attempt to improve the realism.
Sadly that doesn't seem to be the case.
The tyre -> terrain collision detection code will be fixed as soon as possible,
Thank you for the explanation, I did find it a bit strange as tyre grip simulation is one of GPBikes defining features.
