    Again, it seems that you didn't watch the video. I feel that they should link the video in the road map to set a few things straight that you confused once again. (@Marcel Offermans)

    The cars are all ready now with BOP and fine tuning being done and waiting for the approval from the manufacturers. So I don't get where you have the information from that they have just started with the 3D part of the Corvette. ;)

    I believe in what I see. I've seen Bentley in a video and a teaser from Corvette. We'll see when they finally come out. It's up to you to believe what they said.

    They also said September and it wasn't true. We don't even have the names of the remaining cars. Does it make sense for a small team to work in 4 cars at the same time? From the experience in the past NO.

    It's always easier to criticise than to praise, I'm sure if you had a studio capable of producing a gaming platform for all of us to like it'd be different but then you know best right?

    To some extent you have a point, but given the fact that the Corvette teaser is ingame I would think that the 3D work of the cars is ready and that we will see the other two cars pretty fast once they are approved. We are one day behind the deadline and it has been communicated why things are as they are, so I wouldn't break my head too much about a missed deadline. Yes, for some people deadlines are very important, but my experience tells me that they get broken more often than not. :)

    In a few weeks (days?) we can drive a licenced Bentley, Callaway, 650S and two other GT cars with working wipers, rain on windows, puddles, and better ambient light. I have nothing but praise (and a little money :p ) to throw at S397

    I was reluctant two months ago about a September release and there were you to account for my negativity.

    We are in October and we don't even have a full list. Do you want to bet that October will end and GT pack will not be ready?

    I don't care, it's ready when ready, shame you can't accept that.

    I'm very happy with the Roadmap and I'm looking forward to all these things to come to us in high quality. Still my biggest dream is to properly simulate a 24h Nordschleife race sometime. All these announced things get me closer to that dream. GT3 pack, proper rain simulation and, although missing in the roadmap but announced at Simexpo, real weather simulation (same weather in sim as in real place) ... Still hoping for an officially laser scanned Nordschleife and for VR optimizations. But IMO we are getting closer to the perfect racing simulator - and that's exactly what I want!!

    EDIT: I want to add that in other Roadmaps (and again at Simexpo) it was already announced that S397 is also working on a new and modern User Interface (and also described very detailed in a previous roadmap that this is not only a cosmetic change, but more important, it is building up the technical basis to solve future requirements). And S397 also said at Simexpo that they are working on a new multiplayer model to make life easier for leagues (i'm sure that is an example for which the new technical basis S397 are implementing now is used in the future).

    sorry all I've been out of it due to building a new motion setup etc,
    I take it the new UI has been delayed is there a new ETA ?

    preview rain vid looks brilliant -hope it really looks like this

    agreed with Vittorio re.laser scanned goodness

    I wouldn't care either if that had been the deal. Nobody forced them to write September two months ago in the same way that nobody forced them to write October in latest Roadmap. Let's hope I am wrong and that they can comply with their commitment. IMO, establishing unrealistic release dates in order to push early sales is a sign of financial problems.

    You are optimistic based on words and I am pessimistic based on figures. That's the difference between us.

    People are complaining on things that were not given dates anyway.
    At least when it is delayed you have an idea about when things will come. But when people complain like this and force the studio to not give dates anymore we all lose IMO

    I think I read, that the 5 gt will be in September , why do we want a date if they do not meet it,better not give shut and not deceive,so there will be no disappointments

    I think there is no doubt that 397 study has made a huge leap in quality, you have to patiently wait little by little, and congratulate them because they have shown that their commitment to rafctor 2 is correct

    It could be a sign of financial problems, maybe you are right and i wouldnt really wonder. i mean it is almost suicide to keep a product 5years alive by only charge a customer once. all the other motorsport games either had a abo like system or dlcs. it is really about time to make some cash flowin and maybe what they did was some kind of market research by charging customers now with this release date. just to see how much income could be generated. maybe some of the manufacturers is bitching right now and thats what causes the delay.

    Some of you guys are lacking little perspective here. Sure dx11 is delayed but they are also adding new rain effects. Even with delays isn't that a net positive?

    Also in this interview marcel said they are late with the gt pack:
    Code:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=evrKbFqgD4s&t=181s
    He says couple of weeks so mid october maybe? It is not like 397 have gone totally silent about the issue either. Sure, one mention in a 3rd party video about the delayed gt3 pack is not the best way to communicate it to us but at least it is out there and I think everybody who reads this thread has also watched that video.[/URL]

    Very very very interesting interview.
    I think it answers many of the questions of the thread.
    Thank you @T1specialist :)

    If only this came out it would put all other Sims to shame with their weather effects on screens !
