It's easy to always blame testing but there are aspects that should be viewed and reviewed by the developers, like spreadsheet data, tire or aero values, etc. It's bad when testers are the "just happy to be here" kind, but the worst case scenario is the car's development being catered to personal tastes with incorrect HDV parameters that aren't usually apparent without looking for it. It doesn't help to lose a couple of more involved testers (Dave P.'s death of course being outside any control) either.

Either way, it is impossible to have any sort of discussion about it in the forums or other main venues. We'll see what gets changed with the update.

Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR
Mercedes-Benz W196
Reynard 95i
March 86C
Cooper T54
Eagle Mk4
Panoz Esperante GTR-1
Panoz Esperante GTLM GT2
"at least one F1 from every decade"

Makes no sense...how does a GT car replace a prototype?

They got their old GT2 physics and tires done and there's URD car already done. The car was probably already modeled by URD as well, if anything. It's just going for easy stuff and they'll likely go heavy into the GTE/GT3 racing aspect, like every game out there. So many good licenses wasted through ISI already and S397 is showing no interest on non-modern material either, and the Prototype would have barely any default track to be raced on - like so many of the cars - that it would be useless to have a very North American-market car in the game.

Prototype is the only class not represented... I hope S397 doesn't feel the radical fills that gap...to me a very uninspiring car... The sim would have been better served with a Prototype current or not.

Here is the list of tracks that represent the IMSA WeatherTech Sportscar (most are of good quality)
[x] =it's already available in rF2

[?]Daytona International Speedway
[x]Sebring International Raceway
[x]Long Beach Street Circuit
[x]Circuit of The Americas
Raceway at Belle Isle Park
[x]Watkins Glen International
[x]Canadian Tire Motorsport Park
[x]Lime Rock Park
[x]Road America
Virginia International Raceway
[x]Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca
[x]Road Atlanta


A few additional
LeMans
Apple Valley - Sports Car Course

Daytona is available.
There's a VIR ripped from AMS. Strangely, no one has converted the extremely well-done VIR from AC.

Yeah AC Virginia looks cool, terrain could do with some work and road
looks too dark and too much "realroad" look, at least the one I have.



People complained about realroad right around the track in rF2

Belle WIP ?

A lot of those tracks are available but they are different levels of poor and inconsistent.

You will only ever get consistent quality content is a close system... where all content is done by the developer from accurate data... like iRacing or AC.

IMO Mosport / Sebring/Laguna are very good already. (Haven't really tried the others).

I disagree. The standard for games these past years is just so much higher than in the days those average/decent tracks were created. You can see how many accurate scratch-made tracks are made for Assetto, a platform that is not only easier to mod but also renders the material much better. Sebring has good textures and is the only one along with Road America that saves itself. When even the studio standard isn't if the very highest caliber, we can't expect people to put that much into it. Plus, the lack of motivaron to develop to the game. And about Virginia, I thought SimHQ was going to release it for rf2 as well?

You thinking strictly graphics.... then mostly yes(some moders have done a great job too)... but for everything else the 3rd Party tracks in AC are just as inaccurate as they are rF2.

Consistent quality in iRacing... yes, from what I've seen. There's a team of artists crosschecking the overall tone.

In AC? Nope, not even close when it comes to quality & consistency. Within AC, compare historic Monza & Silverstone with Barcelona. They're only barely similar in artistic style. Not to mention the lack of attention to details trackside (missing brake markers at historic Silverstone and a total fiction for the countryside at Brands Hatch).

Perhaps you were thinking of pCARS as the other game with consistent quality in the artwork?

Accurate 3rd Party tracks in AC:

New Jersey Motorsports Park Lightning
Virginia
Mas du Close
Bridgehampton
Riverside
Thompson Road
Barbagallo
Lucca Ring
and hopefully Aspertsham will become more finished

Now the fact that one guy created 3 of those on his own and helped on a 4th may have something to do with the overall level of accuracy and size of the list.

I'm tempted to include Pikes Peak International Raceway, but the quality is not high enough... it's more like a good rF1 track.

I never though Monza was any good and pCars Belgium was a joke

rF2 style is much better even if it is chunkier

heheh

Possibly, but it could be a long wait if you ask me. It took 2+ years for Barbagallo to migrate to rF2 and even then it wasn't anyone associated with SimHQ.

pCars track inaccuracy is a staple. Their new tracks will remain off because some were developed for pc1 and didn't have their terrain changed. For AC, there's also Donington, Paul Ricard, and Montreal to go in the list of tracks but Montreal remains at development standstill.

I'm not only speaking of visuals. The poly count and resolution weigh in the quality, and it's extremely often very lacking. If even Virtua LM guys can no longer be bothered making or updating their stuff, something is going on.

I thought the VLM track guys were swallowed by commercial work?

Yes, I thought Donington should go on the list for AC, but apparently I don't have it downloaded. Don't think I saw Paul Ricard.

I have a little "fear" that some tracks previously teased were kept by ISI for their own title. Watkins and Sonoma, for example.

gmotor /pmotor 3.0 ( as meaningless as that term is )

If it happens, next ISI sim ( not matter what engine is called ) would make the rest feel arcade ...............all over again
