    That's a process that takes time for new developers to start being productive.
    Also with MSG announcing multiple games based on rf2 engine I'd expect the opposite: S397 devs having less time because of helping and introducing MSG devs to rf2 engine.

    It could be as well :D But I don't think they will go that much far away from what they took from ISI, so it would not make sense. I also think there is not that much far to go for physics engine to become excellent. Perhaps the most lacking would be rain stuff, or also if it would be decided to implement more of loose surfaces simulation...

    There must be further route for graphics to go, and a lot has been progressed already. I mean this session today I had at Nords.... I am just simply amazed and very happy. By the way, that was the joke about "Real Engine", that would be just to oppose the "Unreal Engine" :D Please nothing unreal in simracing, it is not the right genre for unrealism :D

    There will be a bedding in period, of course.
    And I think I read Marcel saying something in discord that the resources wouldn't be coming away from the existing team working on the game currently.

    I did ask then on Discord, that there should be a statement or an interview or Q&A (like they do for the competition system) where people could ask questions about what is going on, what are the long term plans etc. It doesn't have to be every week, even one Q&A would be good.

    But, nothing as yet ....

    I really appreciate the graphics update, any date about the new smoke and dust particles release ? I know you have tested them on your private server....

    very nice, if you can take care of the interior textures, I spend most of the time in the cockpit, and not in replay.

    Was frequent shadowing added to simulate shadowing by clouds in sunny/cloudy conditions ? Because in server I raced, it was sunny, and frequently sun got occluded for short time periods, it felt great.

    My guess would be a GT3 variant of the latest BMW Class 1 car.

    I hope some lowish downforce, or even something that has net aerodynamic lift. Just so as much as possible could be felt purely from tires.

    And I guess the track might be Zandvoort. I hope it would be the "historic" version, which is pre-F1 butchery. But I guess it might be only Zandvoort post F1 rebuild. Thanks, F1.

    It was spotted to be Zandvoort 2021. Which makes sense over a historic version :D
