    Nice try, lol

    @Marcel Offermans there is still hope for us "lifetime subscribers" to see our status changed in "beta testers"?
    Something like AMS, two branch of the game on steam with limited access to the ones which payed for lifetime...we can help ironing bugs before a patch or feature release...it works...really...
    This will also help hype and promotion before each release...

    (...more serious try, lol)

    it depends on texture, honestly, i'd say to 70% Make a good normal map for the billboard and you won't notice much difference in most cases.

    No i'd imagine that it's the fact that trees/crowds turning to face you all the time is very unnatural in VR and jumps you out of the immersion factor straight away. It's like someone's eyes following you as you move around a room.... unsettling :)

    Be great if an iracing style track timing delta bar could be an option ( green red thing )

    I know there's a plugin somewhere but I know a lot don't visit forums etc, this really should be a built in standard feature option

    Thanks

    So if we are going to have official race series,I'd like to know if they are implementing a penalty system,with the hopes of promoting cleaner races

    Yeah its "Delta Best Time" on RaceDepartement: http://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/delta-best-time-plugin-for-rfactor-2.3479/

    But i agree. Would be nice to have those basic sort of things built in.

    Most people will never bother with plug-ins ( or even visit race department or websites to down load from ) especially a lot of the iracing crowd a few of which that I personally know

    +a spotter "on your left" etc would be good too ( standard built in )

    Not very demanding are we (-;

    If people want something badly they will find it, although I agree the most basic community plugins should be in the main game install. TechAdes pedal/ffb clipping for starters.

    Problem is that most don't want it that badly so making it easier access is always better and nothing compares to adding it to the base of the game. It's like car mods, you may have the best mod out there just a few people use, if the dev does the same car half as good there will be more people using it than the mod.
    Was the same with Crew Chief in AMS, most people didn't install it but they use AMS integrated spotter, I put a link for CC download in our league thread and recomended people to use, most didn't, was very usefull when Reiza added their own to AMS. That's one of the reasons why I don't like to depend much on the modding community, even when good stuff is made most people won't use

    People need some thing badly they'll maybe not bother to find it

    They'll simply revert back to software they already know (that's not rfactor 2 ) that has it already & at a simply press of a button , all as standard zero hassle with "plug-ins" installation , forums or websites

    Trust me I know
