    1.) yes engines are very loud :p but i think that is what a openwheeler with 700PS from the 80s should be :D.

    2.) hmm , on Imola never had problems with FPS, but i wIll give a look and compare with other tracks.

    3.) Pls try to set graphics for cars on Max, bcs mod dont have LOD-models only LOD-out distances, with max lodouts
    cars should dissapear at more then 300m.

    I have this issue when using the Arrows. The rest of cars work fine for me.

    Nice mod. Just wondering if there will be templates, or as least allowance so we can use our own skins? Cheers

    Any chance you could adjust the head movement so that's more inline with other rf2 mods? At the moment when you brake the view goes into the cars dashboard. I know you can adjust cockpit vibration to minimise this, but I use RHM so even with cockpit multi at 0, the head movement is still very exaggerated.

    I use the realheadmotion plugin and these are the settings I use. The movements of the helmet are very subtle with these settings.

    Your screen shot does not show the Realheadmotion settings?

    Does Realheadmotion override all other settings consistently, so you get the same effects regardless of whether you are using stock content or this 1988 mod? Or does it "multiply" whatever the original car-mod settings are?

    At the end of the day, it doesn't really matter. All mods should use standard and consistent settings. Otherwise the 95% of the world who prefer the standard settings have to fiddle around; change the setting only for this one mod; fiddle with Realheadmotion; etc. It's the same for sound volume. Why on earth would a modder make their car 50% louder than the stock vehicles? If you love loud cars, crank up your volume. But having one mod different from the norm just causes hassle and headaches for all involved.

    As far as I know, the laws of physics did not change when driving a 1988 F1 car. G-forces acted the same in that vehicle as any other. The humans driving it had the same bodies. The helmets were not extra heavy. Why would there be a need for exaggerated head physics when there is already a slider in the UI (that applies to all vehicles equally--for the reasons I just stated) so people can set whatever degree of head motion they find appropriate?

    rF2 head motion doesn't actually work properly, but we don't fix it by making non-standard mods and expecting everyone to install and fiddle with a plug-in every time they switch from one car to the next (which is what would be required if all mods were custom). We should ask S397 to fix it. The one from AMS works perfectly and logically, so they can just copy it.

    Love this mod and sorry to rant. But this non-standardization is exactly what is most wrong with rF2 and killing it. S397 can't fix it fast enough.

    Weird seeing the "PS" term used here, the only other place I've seen it is in Japanese racing games on PS2. It actually means "metric horsepower". 1 PS is 0.98632 HP.

    Is carrera.4 Japanese?

    be interested to know how you think DX11 will effect the huge amount of work you have done already. hoping its not too much of an issue or burden.

    yes it is odd seeing it, so does that mean the normal term HP is kind of like imperial if ps is metric?

    More a matter of wrong translation than different units I guess. PS is the german translation for HP (Horsepower = Pferdestärken). ;)

    Not yet Louis, just wondering if carrera thinks it will be much effort to adapt his work or if needed
