Why is there no forum thread?
If i hover mouse over it , it only shows text "steam workshop"
There is one. They might have blocked you, so I won't link you to it.
So it's a workshop item and that's what the * means. If it was content that was needed for an event, so can't be uninstalled before the event is, it would tell you what the event is.
Must have been some fireworks? I see the thread on reddit is locked also.
Seems like the forum really is partially abandoned.
To bad it would be best to comment roadmap in its thread. I wanted to say that updated Nords, really looks updated ! It looks great in those screenshots, can not wait to see how it looks in real time. It is awesome. That big grass field looks fantastic, grass in the Caracciola Carousel looks to have neat normal map shading. Very nice colors. Tarmac looks clean and not low res, grooves looks natural. Colors are soft, realistic and nicely blending. That new spectators tech looks great, they does look 3D.
But perhaps it is not needed to say that anything is good anymore, perhaps it should be taken as "normal", and we should only speak when something is not perfect and point it out.
This being said.... IMO trees looks bit dark when away from sunlight, bit dark ambient shading, they should be dark in such view angles, but I think not that dark. If this was discord I would already be roasted for talking about nature stuff. And have pizzas thrown.
We had a delayed or even nonexistent roadmap thread a few months ago. You could consider this a trend, or just a couple of oversights.
Must? They don't delete threads even if they lock them. There hasn't been a roadmap thread yet.
Oohh the drama, chill out folks I'm sure it'll be posted here soon enough.
I see, thank for info. Nothing to worry about then.
It is a bit of disappointing that Discord has become main online spot to float around for devs. During my long lasting time there, I have found that frequently it is awesome, helpful and cosy place. But usually it is bunch of random chill dudes with not enough in common standing around in a circle and talking at the same time in multiple loosely related conversations delayed in time. Everything is short lasting, rarely has a direction and flow typical to normal conversations, and if it has, it always is disappointing to someone, because it is not desired subject. I have seen little productive outcome from Discord, although there was.
Yeah, every time i check Discord the topic seems to be Pizza. Not easy to find usefull information there.
And regarding the August roadmap... Yeah well, nothing exciting for me at least. Still waiting for a better offline / Singleplayer experience (broken AI with stutter brakes for example), probably will never happen.
I may be too optimistic, but I think S397 has understood the offline expectations of a large part of these users :
I hope and think that it is possible that after the realization of the competition system (december/january), S397 works quite well on the AI, an offline championship, the race rules and other useful tips.
funny enough the search function works better there than here xD
And there has been great discussions about rF2 and physics on Discord, in fact better than here as some real drivers are there.
The thing is most people with knowledge there (including real drivers) have given up of talking because either it's just repeating the same thing or S397 is not listening ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I lock it for a couple of days to avoid the usual "knee-jerk" responses which are normally irrational and whine about what it NOT there. Roadmap should just be taken at face value... why worry about what is not in it.
August 2020 roadmap not even posted on official rF2 forum makes me feel kind of sad The forum is still a great place for structured, stored and searchable discussions. (nothing discord can give you).
But Nordschleife with new PBR-shaders looks awesome, looking forward too!
I would say the same if I were banned from the discord
I was not banned, I was kicked .. Still the argument is the same.
BTW, I cant recall a guy called Remco Majoor on discord. So no clue who you are.
Even i know, that he is there and i joined the discord today, sneaky af.
An missing official forums thread about the dev update is indeed somewhat strange, but maybe some structures are changing right now, don't forget, that Paul Jeffrey now is CM and has probably to do some preparation for the whole deal, to get in the groove.
The new fashion of information about sim racing goes to Race department for most of the sim racing titles
all sim racing info for every sim racing game
might be the reason why devs are not so active here
Not sure if thats the right thing to do if its an unofficial subreddit.
Not sure if what is the right thing to do? I think you have misunderstood.
