This is a very informative topic, thanks a lot guys for the research Just a simple question from a new player. In first time races with a car/track combo, what does the adaptive AI use as baseline for difficulty? Does it have some value set, or is it trying to estimate som kind of avarage AI difficulty based on other tracks/cars? I'm asking because I started playing yesterday and selected adaptive AI. The first race, at the raceroom racetrack, was easy and beat the AI by a large margin (40+ second after doing a non-mandatory pit stop), according to the .xml file the AI strength was 90 I then moved to slovakia ring and was around -2 seconds off the pace from the lead. The AI was at 102, so I'm wondering how it ended up with that number? Was is a random from an interval, or it looked at the previous result and adjusted according to that?
