What year were you born? Obvious Question for an older gamer site right?
So i have spent endless hrs trying to get this game to where i can actually say iam starting to enjoy it!
Ill post the links shortly!
I found a controller tweak guide that brings the logitech wheels to life, absolutley awesome! i can feel everything thats going on
graphic tips and mods, a better head movement tweak, and one that keeps the horizon relevantly still while still shaking the car so your eyes arent bounching all over
and best of all a SOUND tweak so i can finally hear my tires
these were all tweaks to the controller and player.ini. files
At 6 I could could get an hour in before the lag hits, 7 is pushing it, 8/9 forget it...MX5 sounds good to me.
MX5 Cup sounds fun
Where is this guide you speak of Kurupt?
Okay curious now...spill the beans!

I'm with Knight. Spill!
I will once i test it some more and make sure everything is good.......you'll like it !
All right here it is!
2011 BTCC Series Mod with all the cars from that year!
Ive also put together an offical track pack from what i thought were the best looking tracks available with the highest score @rfactorcentral
Ive tested the mod for the past 6hrs working out all the kinks i was having some issues with crashes and freezing but i believe ive worked out all the kinks ive tested every car on every track and everything seems to be fine now....only thing ive noticed in cockpit mod in the vectra there is a strange blur/shadow at the bottom of the screen? but disapears with a camera change.
As for the mod it looks great! sound is good but i felt could be better, FFB some cars feel great some feel a bit weak...ive noticed some of the weaker ones have ffb upgrades available.
I also went ahead and created a controller.ini. file which i thought was better than the stock.....I havent tried adding the real feel.plugin so feel free to add that and compare
The beemers and other rwd cars are quite controllable on this tracks unlike race 07 and feel quit nice with a few tweaks, some of the fwd cars will take some getting use and others are awesome....only takes a few laps and some easy twaeking to get them in place.
First things i noticed while testing the cars is the brake pressure was way to strong causing lock ups and slides i dropped the pressure to 75% and it was fine
Fwd cars seemed to wash out in corners...easily solved by raising the suspension stiffness 2 clicks f/b rear arb and ride height 1 click.
I did a 10 lap race with 20ai pretty intense and sounded awesome! everything looked inplace and the cars felt pretty planted when bumped or rearended.
Id like to get a few people together and run this mod to see if we can catch any glitches or serious problems.
I know theres a few BTCC leagues running this mod as i was watching them on youtube so it should work lol........and in all honesty iam about 100% sure its a rip of race 07 and is illegal, but hence my GT iam not too concerned hopefully Dark wont report me ;)
So if enough guys like it and are interested id like to start a bi weekly series
Not entirely sure what the rfactor dedicated servers are capable of but what i was thinking.....
10 min qualifying follwed by 3 x 15 min races with reverse griding after race 1.....not sure if rf1 has ballast or not but this mod for every car can purchase ballast in the upgrade section...but again not exactly sure how that would work.....top 3 overall leaders always have ballast to keep the field close? will figure something out
10 tracks with a total of 30 rounds
Pits open but optional since its a short race
Driver and manufacture championships
GBR race rules
anyways here it is!
use a fresh install...i havent tried any pluggins since i got it working so trial and error
NGTC mod goes in your rf1 directory folder
Locations in your gamedata folder
and if you wanna try the controller.ini file it goes in userdata/gamertag folder
Cheers hope you like it!
dont use that controller ini file i used the wrong one doh!
Yup me like, anything BTCC rocks my boat...downloading now!
+ one Knight
Will be downloading shortly.
Any RWD for me to drive?
Hmm had it crash twice running at Donninton Nat...
But assuming we can run it, my usual Seat Dave Newsham 17a is claimed!
K ive scrapped the last MOD from above ive found a new one with all the tracks included in the download, theres also a patch file as well just extract your gamedata folder to your fresh new rf1 install.
NOTE: This mod is very sensitive! It needs a fresh new install, it also wont support xd, map pluggins or any other pluggins and other tracks just whats in the google document! plus this is a sim not an arcade real race cars dont have that shit just drive! ;)
Ive also added a controller ini. file to improve the ffb feel free to tinker with it....if its too strong or too weak just adjust the ffb slider in game to your liking.
Start a new gamer file than just copy/paste controller/multiplayer files etc.
As long as we dont try adding anything and just run whats given to you this mod should run well and be hella fun!
For those of you that wanna try the FFB file included please set your wheel to tthe following:
Overall strength 105%
Spring Dampner 5%
Dampner effect 5%
Click enable centre spring 5%
Strength=40-80% your liking
Rates Wheel 25-50 % i run 25% and i find it gives more feel in the flex of the tires....higher makes it feel harder with less feel.....just MOA
Only glitch ive come across is in cockpit mode in holiday inn vectra theres a shadow/blur infront of the car.
Please report any crashes here so we can determine if this mod is worthy!
This one seems okay so far, sure it's the same car mod...there is a sound glitch that makes some of the gear changes sound like a pistol shot, and that was in the last one too. My Coffeedrops seat is not included so I once again claim the solitary seat :)
Will download and install tonight.
Need to get some laps in on the Clios though!
No aids on at all apart from auto clutch.
Sounding good Kurupt.
Will have a play with the mod tonight.
found a converted wtcc race 07 mod for rfactor....looks and feels the same :)
Sounds intresting !
So I just got rfactor last week while I was on vacation. I mainly got it to see if I could join the guys at GBR for their V8 supercar series.
Ah wish I could join in on those, tip download the lite version and have an install for every mod, also a single track folder that all the installs point to. Some mods interfere with each other and can cause no end of hassle, by keeping them separate you can avoid the worst of it.
I just saw a video about the lite version. I will start doing that, i only have the V8's loaded right now, and brands hatch in my regular rfactor setup. I am still tweaking the ffb and such. but so far I see why this sim is so popular. Once I restarted my pc and fixed my fps issue, it runs great.
