    It's all about setting up correct FOV

    Nah, just a really small driver, everything else is normal :D
    Damn, what are those ? 3 x 72" screens ?
    Make one feel like a 5 year old in Daddy's car.
    The seat kit looks really good though (even if the LED readout on the steering wheel does not work).

    Thank you for the sharing, Nico Jamin, one of our Beta testers of the Endurance Series and Flat6 mod.

    Good to hear but then why your endurance series cars feels like floating while S397 feels on the asphalt?

    Because we have not the tire physician of S397 in our team to generate tire like we want to have ;) and just passionate guys doing free modding with limited time and capacity ;)
    But the new update in stock is quite better than the current available.

    I appreciate the effort S397 is doing in a quest for maximum realism

    Glad to hear but other modders have even less people to work on the cars and manage to get their cars to touch the asphalt :)
    But anyway glad to rear the new update will be better, wish it would happen before RaceDepartment Bathurst 1000km race tho, I seriously thought about giving up of that event because of this behavior :(

    From the video point of view the car does look massive but probably looks correct behind the wheel I'm guessing?

    Step by Step, hour after hour, and one day it's better than the previous one ;) Passion, time and patience.

    I think this is a common misconception, so here's an analogy of sorts.

    Say you sit in front of a mirror 1 foot away from you. You will see yourself apparently 2 feet away from you. Now put a monitor 1 foot away from you and showing the same thing. The image will be quite close to life-size. Easy so far. Now put the monitor 10 feet away from you, but appearing to you to show the same thing - that monitor will need a bigger image of you in order to look the same size (as it's more distant). Or take it to the extreme, sit at the back of a movie theatre with your image still appearing (to you) the same size, and now it's 20 feet tall. But the way it looks to you hasn't changed.

    Easy enough, I think, but if someone else looks at all those scenarios from behind you - like the camera is in that video - the size difference will be apparent because they see you closer to the screen than they are. If they are able to look at you sitting in the movie theatre from outside the room and across the hall, there you are sitting there small in your chair and then there's your huge head on the screen. So yeah, it's just about perspective, as long as the FOV is correct for the seating position it will look right - from the seating position.

    Sorry for OT. Cool blog :cool:
