    Thanks for the roadmap.

    Incredible Nurburgring work.

    -----

    Marcel had said 1 or 2 years ago in the RD interview that rF2 would have TCRs OR GT4s (sure).

    When is this going to happen and which of the 2 will we have ?

    I would also like to see the TimeAtaсk mode. So that you can choose a track, a car and load a ghost

    In rF2 you can have your own ghost, adjust the transparency on the player.json.... But there are some bugs with some cars.

    From road map it sounds like any car will just get additional power when driving over attack zones, IDK if it is ideal solution. However I don't think it would make that much of a difference, since mostly only FE will be raced in those tracks anyway.

    Nordschleife looks superb, finally up to latest tech Nords, very curious and excited to drive loooooooots of Nords. I think trees ambient shading is quite dark when camera is pointing towards the sun direction, I am not sure if it is best utilisation of this new awesome trees shading tech, I can not wait to see how it looks real time.

    Also it is exciting part about all that material for modding, I look forward to see how much of that I will be able to utilise as blender user, meanwhile as traveler has teased his work on blender 2.8 addon.

    Wow those Nurburgring shots look insane! Are you sure those are from rF2?! :)

    Love the new Nordschleife screenshots. Seems the exaggerated dark rubbered racing line is gone (maybe too much?) and looking better overall.

    there is a time attack mode in every simulator. In any case, this mode may interest new players

    What happens when these new players join an online session and there are no attack zones? What about that red/green line...I want the red/green line...

    Is there any attack mode in 24h Norschleife race? No. Any on 24h Le Mans? NASCAR ... and you can go on. So please keep attack mode to Formula E only please.

    No it doesn't. It sounds like you could make another car able to use it (I would say in the mod, rather than just switching it on for any car). Why would they make it work for all cars? We all know that would be silly.

    I've only half watched a recent F-E race, but if I recall correctly they mark out a zone around the outside of a corner and drivers can choose to drive through that zone (once a race?) and get more power for a limited time. The fact it's a compromised line adds to the strategy of when to use it.

    Further to Lazza’s post, all drivers have a mandatory 2 attack mode periods during each race, each lasting 4 minutes where the car gets and additional 25kW of power. There is also a fanboost available in the 2nd half of the race to those with the most fan votes (5 seconds iirc)
    The zones have 3(start, middle and end) embedded detectors in the track, and drivers have to be fairly precise to activate attack mode, I’ve seen a few drivers miss one of the embedded activation loops and have to try again.

    the nordschleife is looking really great!

    but i wish it was easier to host and join online races... most of my friends are still stuck in iracing because of that.

    Awwwww.... you poor fragile person.... How dare simulated cars simulate something interesting and it not being approved by you so must not happen?

    Don't like it? Then don't race it.
