What year were you born? Obvious Question for an older gamer site right?
Saw this limerock comparison today, minus the chainlink ontop of the gaurd rail before entering the last turn its absolutely bang on! very nicely done :)
I love videos like that!
Yup, just shows Lazer scanning is not the be all and end all. They spent a lot of time at the track, and as can be seen there got it bang on. It is the last track released and the best looking to date.
Keep your eyes on the GBR forums over the next couple weeks. Some of the guys are going to be doing some rF2 exhibition races, as we go in between seasons. Let me know if you want to get in on it. Most will take place on weeknights, probably around 7:15-7:30pm (PST) start times. I don't think there will be a lot, but there is talk of a couple anyways.
Thanks for the heads up Helios.
If iam correct i believe iracing only scans the track surface and curbs and then fills in the rest. The one thing i like about the scanning is that every road bump and curb heigth is implimented and the tinniest bump can change the whole dynamics of a corner. Theres been alot of tracks ive ran in other sims were ive able to to take a turn or elevation change at full tilt, but in iracing ive had to change my approach or line to carry as much speed through just due to little bumps or curb differences, but none the less this track looks great :)
I think every major race way should have laser scanned data available for devs and modders to gain access to for a cost. Having exact track detail feedback with a powerful physics engine is what all hardcore simmers are seeking. But thats just my opinion, iam one of the odd guys that enjoys learning the details of the tracks, rather than playing to race in my dream car
I had a long reply to this but somehow on the screen it looked more argumentative than I wanted, wish we could sit round a table with a pint or two..

If we did Knight I think we would be there for a ver long time!
Your not wrong mate, it is a damn shame we are all such a long way apart, though one of these days I suspect you and I may just get together IRL.
Hah that Volcano almost trapped me on Malta, just got the last flight home before they were all grounded.
Ya it was bummer I was pretty excited to go, we ended up in mexico instead.
Ill get rf2 for sure iam just waiting for some cars i like to be released, currently the only car that some what interests me is the 370z but not enough to make me purchase it yet...the main reason really is the damn cost of iracing! Any word of when the btcc ford is due for release or any other touring cars in the works?
No but there is much fun to be had with some of the other cars, historix are great fun, though the F1, is well beyond me, F3 don't take too long to get the hang of and the Clios are a gas, Renault is okay too.
Mexico...cool, closest I have got is New Mexico and got killed by a chille, my hosts thought I was into hot food and ordered a real hard core dish...I was not at all prepared for what came, I don't actually like hot chillies and curries so when I started eating this one...well it was not a pretty sight
The wife loves Currys ect but a massive no no for me.
Steak and chips please.
In regards to meeting up IRL I keep quoting jobs to Ireland cheap. Free trip then

Heh yeh I am a steak and chips man myself, like things simple and tasting of what they are.
Be a gas if you got a trip over for free,
Heh I wait with trepadation.
As long as its base is better than rf1 i should be happy :) Personally there wasnt 1 aspect of rf1s base content that really impressed me I am just glad for all the community mods that were available to completly revamp and fix all the issues to make the game enjoyable.
Ill be downloading and reporting back shortly once the wife takes the kids to gym :)
Does the install come with any content or do i have to download and install it, cause i got nothing atm....i put a couple mods in packages file but only the vette will work and i have no tracks
Yes it comes very much like rF1 lite, so go here http://rfactor.net/web/rf2/rf2dl/ and download all the ISI content. Place as usual in the packages folder, don't be tempted to skip any as at the moment some things are cross dependent. This will change in some future build when base content is updated.
Oh just about to have dinner but after that I will be on the rig so we could get together on teamspeak if you have any questions, so much quicker than typing :)
I got it all going i had to unclick show all mods to get the base content
Excellent, now best track mods to add are anything by Feels3, Croft and Poznan come to mind. Mid Ohio of course...I'll have a look at what else I have that is worth having.
Knight could you please post a link for some more add on tracks please, iam having issues finding any more than the one at race2play....cheers
Kurupt, did you go here: http://www.race2play.com/sim/show/19#files
That is where I went last night to get mid ohio, snetterton, croft, spa (Botniaring) and monza (Brianza). I also got the Vette and Skip Barber cars from there too.
got those, knight was telling me about a few new tracks from a new modder that was good
Cool! Looking forward to more stuff for RF2.
These are the two from feels3 Poznan being the latest. He is the man and when you think he has been at this for only six or seven months it makes you wonder what he will be doing in a couple of years. He is working on Interlagos at the moment.
That link is to a constantly updated torrent for every track avaliable, now there is good and bad in there, but it is the best way of seeing everything and making your own mind up about what you may enjoy driving
Another good site http://www.drivingitalia.net/forum/index.php?app=downloads&showcat=10
