    I think the reflections in the broadcast looked slower than the top setting in game (which we know is slower than it used to be). I doubt this is a capture-sync oddity (other motion looked fine) so perhaps a lower setting was used?

    Pretty sure the slow reflection updating was one of the fps improvements they did back when DX11 was new.

    The reflections looked awful during the 24 hour stream and I heard more than one comment on the various streams about how the reflections let down an otherwise fab looking rF2.

    I don't see any change when running reflections at either high or low; the reflection still run at a very low frame rate. I'd take prebaked reflections running at 60fps (or greater) like that in rFactor, various SimBin titles and AMS than the current realtime reflections running at 20fps.

    I thought it looked considerably slower than I see in game, but I haven't played with those settings since before they were changed a couple of years ago. Would be good to have an option on the rate. Used to look good.

    Generally speaking, it would be nice to be able to change a lot more graphic parameters (and sounds), and much more in depth.

    Associated with very specific recommendations of S397, suggestions for graphic combos like the 3 offered today, but at least 8 in number (very low, low, mid low, mid, mid high, high, very high, ultra ).

    Advice for adjusting race conditions (24h cycle, rain, AI) would be desirable and advice for VR settings.

    Tips for using VRAM in rF2 too.

    info on what settings actually affect (terms of hardware) would be great too. Now it's just trial and error on what lowers v-ram usage ,or lowers cpu usage for example.

    I'd really welcome rF2's new UI with the detail of AC's Content Manager graphics settings. Content Manager provides the user with the percentage of performance loss for each graphical parameter which includes a screenshot plus a description highlighting the difference each graphical level adds to the sim. Why more sims haven't copied the CM mod graphical settings help guide I don't understand as it's both clear and concise.

    Content Manager adds to ability to race in the real conditions (or as much as AC allows) which is another bonus and something I'd like rF2 to offer.

    Think it might have gone up to 50% to try and improve the driving standards.

    Going up to 100% would really help there, because you can already damage your aero by hitting one of the cute green bollards >:->

    In the official rules there was written damage multiplier = 100%.

    Was the lmp2 also BOP'd, or just the GTE's?

    If not im 10 secs too slow in both classes.

    Do you run the Le Mans Package, activated over the Showroom?

    The RSR is also miles away here in terms of pace, even with a better setup, than the horrible defaults. The Oreca definetly needs the low aero configuration, so this car can turn into a rocket.

    Did the LMP2 cars run ABS like the GTE cars in the 24 hour event?

    If they did during the event and you aren't, that may also go to explain some of the time differences.
