    Will this 'pack' include future tracks? Or will those be separate purchase? Price for the standalone track scares me, if I have to purchase future tracks.

    Does each team have their own drivetrain/powerunit modelled? Or are they all the same, just skins?

    7.99 for one 1.4 km track : a little expensive, but still a fair price. For a 7 km SPA Francorchamps (laser), I could pay 20e. But Honk kong dont interessed me.

    A lot in the release notes point to an unfinished release once again.


    • AI currently does not adhere to the 1 pit stop rule and does not try to save fuel by lifting and coasting
    • fuel indicator currently does not show granular detail on battery life, therefore we suggest using 3rd party plugins in the meantime
      • AI will sporadically slow just after Start/Finish under full course yellow – this should not affect the race restarts.

      Am I being a party pooper here or am I right to think once again these issues will take ages to rectify or get pushed further down the ladder when the next content is released,like all the other new issues released content has.

      Pls tell me I’m reading it wrong and these issues aren’t as big as I think they are to the detriment of racing with ai or online

    $7.99? Damn, they charging Canada $12.13 for the single track. Our dollar isn't that bad! :( I'm really unsure if I want to support this now, which is too bad as I love Formula E... but this could make it like $100+ for a full season if they release all tracks.

    This, and the one set of physics while in real life, every car is different. I think some cars have the one gear, some have two, unless it has changed.
    Looks like a rush job once again indeed.

    I'm pretty sure there won't be 10 tracks for 8 dollars each. It takes many many months to build a single track with today's standards, and if they one day somehow got all 10 tracks released, there would probably be a pack discount. One track probably takes as much work as three cars, so IMO it's in range of GT3 pack pricing.

    I might have to wait and see, I'm just really concerned this is going to add up quickly. Would be 10 more tracks to come, as there's 11 locations visited in total this season. And I can see them using the previous models that were used at the simulators (at the events for public use, or that teams trained with) for existing tracks and them updating those (textures, etc) to their current standards... so it might not take as long between each track... but hard to say.

    Am I slightly disappointed? Yes.

    Will I still buy it to support Studio397 in continuing development of arguably the best simulator on the market? Yes.

    I didn't think 3rd party plugins worked yet in DX11. Or have I missed something?

    What happened with the GT3 Power Pack and maybe a full grid of skins? ... :(

    Yes it is. 12.13 Canadian Dollar equals 7.97 Euro according to Google.

    You know guys if this is too expensive you most likely don`t have money to pay your next power invoice and it may be wise to log off power is expensive :p

    Not being able to try right now I made the AI turn :

    Did not know that the acceleration was at this point ... lousy. And the top speed is minimal too. And the sound ;).

    For my satisfaction, I therefore only put on physics / FFB.
