For those who are not aware, the last 5 years in flight sim has been the years of XP11. A game that sells itself as one of the best FM in the market, and made that their selling point and they pretty much ignored everything else for 3 years. Two years ago they decided to improve the UI, which took about one year. This year they have been working in making a port to Vulkan, but gameplay wise in 5 years they have done a heck and many aspect of the game was simply lacking. They had the chance to provide a better overall product but they just missed the boat and now they are about to be run over by the returned king, MSFS20, that has simply raised the bar by miles, even in overall FM which was XP best selling point, casting very dark shadow on a product so shallow like XP11. Leaving "the return of the king" aside, no pun intended, rf2 reminds me a lot XP11. Their selling point is physics but everything else is simply lacking up to the point to make it the worse overall package in the market IMO. Specially when you consider that some features are not even present, ex. championship or a proper and simply AI selection. It is simply unacceptable that a product so old which should be pretty mature, instead in 10 races at least 4 suffer of a bug that brakes the experience. This week for the second time in a row i've received a drive through penalty that i could not clear off (the first in official lemans and the other in modded daytona). There is always something stupid braking the experience. What about the future? They took 3 years just to develop a stupid UI with barely no parallel development on anything else. Now that the UI has been released, a month later we still have to live with the stupid "checking servers" whenever you go back to the main menu. Not even a damn hotfix for something that IT IS so simple to fix. The development has been basically focused in UI for 3 f*****g years where tons of bugs, unfinished features and simply missing features has simply lived for 3 years. Rather than promises there is little to be excited about rF2 development since their development pace is really really slow. After the DX11 i see no major release which should be more frequent for something so lacking as rF2. I don't want to be hash but i simply wish that the same happens in driving sims, a new king arise in order to cast shadow to most of these developers of today.
