RBR mods (2010, 2011, 2012)...are they really worth it?
The only reason why I really adore and admire RBR (original version) is because it's one heck of a drive, one hell of a sim. The notorious popularity of RBR being the most difficult and most realistic rally sim game got me hook. NOTHING else.
I mean, I can play with just the decent graphics, I am not looking for theatrical and dramatic slow mos and replays. The original RBR graphics WORKS perfectly fine for me. I am not into so many cars as well. I am a Toyota guy in real life. I only drive Toyota cars in all my games. I do like Subaru and Xzara as well. But I have driven the real life counterparts of Toyota cars, so I don't really need all the rally cars in the world. I have an AE86 Trueno in real life and that I would want in my RBR garage. On the other hand, more tracks are welcome for me. But in the same sense, I don't want stunning seven wonders of the world scenery track graphics. What matters to me most is the realism of the grip on such tracks, the ride, the go and the drive on it and off it most often when crashing and hugging trees.
I also mean, why would I want memory hugging skins. All I want is a black or red or white paint job. That's it.
The setup modification environment of RBR for me is enough.You get results even with minor changes. That's very good.
In short, I want my RBR to be more of a driving game, not a scenery, not a showcase of colors and sparks and movie-making prowess. I want RBR to be simply, the most realistic DRIVING game that it is in the original RBR.
So, 2010 mod, 2011 mod, 2012 mod...what's in them? Do I get even more realistic physics? Do I get even more realistic ride? Do I get to tinker more with the car as I would habitually do in real life with real cars? I like 10psi on my left front tire so I can run flat as an excuse for a bad run, can I do that? Can I deliberately wank the camber settings just for the heck of it? Can I mess about and make the turbo pop more? Because in real life, that's possible. It may not be part of rallying, wanking car settings, but how good it is to know that there are no limits in what I can do, right?
RBR is very nice to run on my pc. I play RBR on an old laptop, keyboard only, no controllers of whatever, I don't like outboard controllers. Keyboard controls are trickier thus more fun.
I am skeptic with the new mods because they just might drain out the resources of my primitive computer.
Just joking, my laptop can run RBR all settings MAX with no problems.
So again, my question...new mods, are they really worth it?
What's in them?
I have seen that one of them has the AE86 Trueno pack, I want that, but just that.
And people are saying it's a pain in the ass to install the new mods.
I am not shying away from a challenge, but if I am going to spend days configuring the install, whereas I could have been driving instead.
If I can compare RBR...It's just like my women. I want them to look good, decent, just fine. I don't want a super model or a miss universe or a sexy bombshell. I want one that is intelligent, smart, witty, humble, and with one heck of a sense of humor.
Thanks and more horsepower to all.
