    When will you introduce long time promised combined rating or just safety rating?

    Hey Havner - yes ratings will be coming - not as part of this update, but as we state in the announcement, they will be arriving going forward.

    No you don't @juanchioooo you register within the CS itself - the threads are just simply for discussions / questions and all things chattery :)

    lol, after the flood of announcements, I was going to jokingly ask if they would announce the end of current announcements.... still coming. Keep at it S397!

    Yes, all these announcements are very good, but there are still things like going out to the track for a race and the ffb turned off, you have to go out to the box and return to the track to recover it, if it happens to you at the start, then it's over before start. We are still like this, but with a new interface.

    If they wait to fix all bugs before using the CS, it'll never happen.

    Hopefully extra numbers and focus on the issues will expedite the fixes.

    First CS race completed, great experience so far. Very respectful drivers and agile race flow. I liked it.

    (replying here because this really isn't specific to the Indycar series)

    @burgesjl re: the part of the quote above I've put in bold - it's not S397's decision for the game to force you to have/own all content used in a race. That's since Day 1 of rF2, nothing to do with Steam, and nothing to do with S397. You can't have these opinionated posts if you're going to get things wrong.

    You're giving your opinion on what would be best. Ok, that's fine. That doesn't make it true, and it doesn't mean they have to do it. You want to enter a CS series? You need all tracks in the series. You want to enter a race? You need all cars in that race. Done. Your choice, take it or leave it.

    How you feel about it is up to you, but no one's forcing you or anyone else to take part. Is that the best option for S397 to take? Well, none of us know for sure, and the fact they're continuing to do it probably says something about either what they think (as the actual stakeholders) or the work they can see it would take to make it work another way.

    Nope, you are completely wrong. The issue is directly with the use of the Steam Content mechanism. There is not a way for them to download content to your PC, but not have it drivable. They would have to put a solution on top of that to verify, other than what Steam provides them. This is in fact what all the other developers have done, but S397 have not; and they also use the DLC mechanism, which again S397 (or ISI before them) decided not to use. This has been admitted by Marcel.

    So, yes, given the restrictions in place and the choices of content they've made, I'm going to leave it and continue with iRacing as I have for 12+ years without these issues, and 100,000+ current subscribers. How many do S397 have again?

    It's incredible. Yoy pay for every single track, every single car you use in iRacing (except the content included in the subscription), you pay a subscription as well, and you complain because you have to pay for ONE circuit of six which are in the Serie. Crazy.

    So, how do you think these S397 guys earn a salary every month? By donations?
