i also support this idea, as it makes the whole thing more transparent and users can better choose what they want, but i think we still need an "other cars" or "more cars" package, as some of them are pretty lonesome in their respective categories.
Another suggestion concerning cars (strongly inspired by forza
The "garage" page shows some performance characteristics for each car (acceleration, top speed, cornering..). Wouldn't it be nice to calculate an "overall performance rating" (a simple number) out of these, to make cars better comparable? In addition to the button "select five random opponents from this category"
, another button "select five random opponents with similar performance rating from any category"
could be established this way.
As mentioned, some car categories have very few cars and even less robots in it (especially when considering user cars), so that it can be tricky to choose adequate opponents. With "performance matching", one could just select a car, push the button and start a well-balanced race...
Although a race between rallye cars, stock cars and 36gp or whatsoever
is not realistic at all, it might be more fun to ride than a race without any opponents..?
