    I know this is the third time I've mentioned it on this forum today. But how about trying to get the old 3PA-system back? JM have worked on that Daytona version for years. I am sure it would be an advantage for S397, Motorsport Games and the modders if you end up having some modders making awesome content that you end up licensing. That there is a co-operation. It will free up resources in-house, and modders gets an incentive for their work.

    I bought it last week. It’s really well done but I was missing banners with real names. I could see they’ve been added to the Steam version. I will have a look on it.
    Anyway, I hope that the release of all these Daytona circuits will encourage skinners to invest RF2 and IMSA field with 2022 skins (yes 2020 grid is available).

    Nice sound.
    And Bus Stop already got "Le Mans colours" :)
    However, seeing the tyres marks at 3'46, I bit worry AI leave the fast lane very late to enter the pits.... occuring crash fests during races.
    (as it was the case in SJ version).

    I prefer Brands hatch, Oulton, and Bathurst before, and Suzuka.
    About Daytona and the BMW GT3, it's awesome, some new content will give a fresh air.

    50cents says the Indycar will be stand-alone, but the Ligier, BMW & Daytona will be in a package.

    Yes we already had that.
    Honestly?
    I know that there are at least 30 people behind rF2 who earn their living with it. They all have families like us.
    24/7 they are involved in this project. .I myself was Deputy Chairman of our company. With 450 employees.
    Our priority list never ended.
    We differentiated between necessity and importance. .and something always came up that upset those priorities. I can well imagine this madness. Especially in the software industry. A tough business. And very fast-paced. What's good today is sxxt tomorrow!! And her new employer, Motorsport Games, sets the tone.
    My points that I have mentioned were not intended to bash, or to stir up displeasure.
    I don't want to gamble with other people's livelihoods.
    I just wanted to point out something.
    Maybe there will be a fix or two with the upcoming content on Monday?
    I'll wait and see. And if everything fits, I'll go straight to the Daytona or the new M4 GT3!
    Just to support the team, and because the M4 is awesome!:cool:
    Again, I was merely pointing out something. I love rF2 and wish S397 the best. At the end of the day, we are all people trying to support our families.
    I'm feeling a little better now. .

    don't worry, constructive criticism is not spam, it is logical that nobody works for free, although some think that everything they ask for should be free, the reality is that business moves the world and nobody works for free

    I appreciate much more the work of the modders, who in almost 10 years have kept rF2 afloat, it is they who should be flooded with $$$

    I think most of the critique is not denial, but the focus of progress does not fit what each individual user wants or needs. If S397 came out with ONE MAJOR Fix, they would get applause but then harsh condemnation for not addressing what other individuals consider crucial.

    I honestly don't want to participate anymore.
    No matter what you say, it's always wrong.
    It really is enough.
    And yes, on my FB page and group, I always diligently distribute all the news from our modders.
    Including Apex Modding!
    I love and respect everyone who works their ass off for providing us with such awesome mods for our sim!
    I'm done!

    Well done, you said it too: s397 worked too much on the VISIBLE and NOT on what you can't see, that's why it's all a big mess, understand?

    I'd so love to something slow, light, mechanical coming from S397. Or the existing BMW M2 Comp and Alpine to have their physics updated. Although Alpine is not exactly S397, but they endorse it so much, use it in comp system...

    It is just something that official rF2 doesn't have:

    Here is epic epic epic rain GT onboard from Daytona


    Daytona looks like epic track in wet. Layout + puddles and rain racing lines stuff looks pretty entertaining.

    @AlexHeuskat You are right, I was thinking if I miss some car. It does actually fit to that category, and I think it drives pretty great. Unfortunately IDK if it fits as "official" rF2 car, since content from Reiza, but S397 does not seem to adopt others content @ 100%.
