    If anything its the best time to release one, RogSys offers something completely different to SC (think RF2 vs GRID) but gets to use the hype SC and ED etc have created for space games to help sell.

    Well i think relation between mentioned two racing games and mentioned two space games is not quite right. We can judge rf2 and grid, because both is racing games and more than racing we can not get, so we judge by the only most important things like driveability, physics FFB and decide which one we prefer. In Space games there is a lot of more things that can be at least as important as pure physics mechanism. Can be story, music, animations, immersion in the end how the game feel. How much imagination is producing in us. Maybe we can look that way, because mostly of us have no contact with real spaceship and our thinking about universe is more
    imagination in our brains. So we are not so much connected with pure realism in Space games, as we connected with pure realism in racing games.

    Thanks for your answer. Mmmm, I still can't found in a thread or in my head why I was 100% sure you will not go this time through the unstable release...Shame on me, sorry about that.

    Yes. So is Thursday. So is next Monday. So is 3 weeks from today.

    There are hints around the place, but I wouldn't be expecting huge new features. Content isn't directly related to builds so the build won't have content.

    I backed both ED and SC. Initially felt DB was trying to cash in on SC hype, but don't anymore. His development is going faster, I think SC suffers, as rF2 does, from having a lot going on. ED, which is being coded very smartly to not appear more simplistic than SC, is indeed a lot more simplistic. Plus, I think DB has been doing ED prototypes for YEARS.

    Michael (Scott) was working on his space sim before SC was announced and frankly, it's a completely different type of product. It'll go into a niche market neither ED or SC will.

    A build isn't content.

    The build will have support for karts, but isn't the karts.

    Does this mean the karts are not to far away from release?

    Thanks Tim. I actually understand and applaud the effort and honesty expressed here. The structure of the rFactor experience seems to have been the "bones" of the game. Without that, modders would have nothing to work with. Without good "bones" there would be nothing to work with. Thanks for the insight.

    The big question is:
    "Which Kart track in Québec will it be ?"

    that is the question I am wondering since the first time we saw the location "Quebec Kart" !

    I can't wait to test an official Kart content using rF2 FFB and ISI knowledge. Could be pretty fun! :) We will probably have a new and very different feeling, like the RWD vs FWD one when Civic came. Some may raise the filter setting in control panel as it could be kind of "hard" and nervous ;)
