    Is it just me or does the headlight throw (projection) on the road look really bad. Its just a solid light that lights up everything in front of in outward triangle shape. Compared to any sim out there its really unrealistic, below are some examples of the headlight throw in different games
    1. Assetto Corsa (SOL)

    I could show more but you get the idea from PCARS2 and ACC how the headlights look on the road, next is how the cars from RF2 hace their headlight throw on the road

    As you can see the AC and iracing versions have a shape projected on the road instead of just a wide area lit up. I think the difference is quite blatant to see. Therefore, I hope this is addressed in the future releases and is refined and fixed. I do not mean to criticise the people at S397 but merely bring this to their attention as I feel they are more than capable of fixing this.

    Until then i wonder if there is a mod or something we can do to get realistic headlight throw within the game. Do you know of any such mod guys? Do let me know

    HDR profiles aren't used any more.

    On page 12 of the thread for the Apex 1999 mod, there is a short discussion about a recent change to the lighting system. I'm stuck with just my phone so I can't link to it.

    Yeah, I think that it's just too powerful with certain cars.

    I just had a look at the thread you mentioned and yeah I saw the change made, I think that change made it even worse. thats unfortunate but lets hope someone makes a mod to fix that or S397 fixes it soon.
