    It is a bit messy but the idea is there. Looks good that rF2 overlay.

    Quick thing, could you name the track folder something easier to locate? Anything from Old_Forestheim_SL (SL = Sergio Loro) to Forestheim_F3, instead of Hocke_F3. Also, for the test, I'm going to run no HDR, automation HDR, and noautoexposure HDR by Tosch. I'll grab screenies from tracks like Silverstone and Mores to compare.

    Recolored some trees (you have lots of trees :D), grass and modified some materials (rescaled multi maps for grass and asphalt). Asphalt multi map is much brighter now. I don't like dark roads. Increased specular reflection for the road.
    You don't need a special hdr profile. Just some texture tweaking. ;)

    I ran the game at 3:30pm to minimize graphical issues

    - Tarmac and immediate track surroundings are either low resolution or not greatly mapped. Notice the "crater" like surface on the asphalt
    - No blending of colors into the environment
    - Extreme variation of trees, very bright despite surrounded by more trees (as if the Sun was shining directly on each)
    - 2D sprites near track should be 3D models
    - Flickering of a couple of trees in the straights
    - Flickering of billboard before entering forest (also present in ISI's Tiger Drome so it may be a game issue)
    - No ambient occlusion anywhere, no shading on textures, everything is bright as if exposed to the same source of light at the same angle

    Automation HDR/ noautoexposure HDR

    No HDR - Slightly less issue of contrasting content but still very noticeable

    See? Didn't even have to ask Tosch, he popped up here on his own :p. The trees look a bit washed out and that fog isn't very welcome but I don't know how much is actually rF2 and how much is track.

    What changed in .7? I had deleted the .48 but I still have the same trees, all billboards flicker (like Tiger Moth AĆ©rodrome), etc. By the way, the loading screen is better than I imagined it would be. It feels a bit busy, but if if you could center the rF2 logo on the top part of the screen and have the track name and layout more noticeable, and have the track information in a way that is easier to read, it'd be a nice improvement.

    Yup, I have the billboard textures flickering, as well as some tree trunks.
    The stadium pops up as I am approaching it from way down the back straight as well.
    Extremely picky, but the red and orange shirts in the crowd. There are some places where it appears to be solid vertical line of red, so some more randomisation of placement would be cool.
    The trees seem better, but with HDR automation it seems they have their own light source so when the engine applies light, it's oversaturated. That's how it seems to me anyway.
    They could also blend a little better imo.

    For driving, I'm pretty pleased. I've done around 15 laps and can just imagine the battles it will produce.
    I'll reserve final judgement when I have realroad buildup though.
