    dude, we need better and easier multiplayer features so we can race with friends, not AI.

    i don't care about the new season for competition i don't take part in, seriously.

    you have been promising this for years now.

    when are we getting closer to an online system like other sims have for over a decade?

    Good God you lot, stop frigging complaining!

    Be grateful this 7 year old Sim is still being developed & official content is still being worked on.

    If you don't like it, you know where the door is.

    While we all like bug fixes and, probably, good BOP, these frequent updates absolutely clobber desirable game features like Race Events and Replay files. Will there ever be a way to stop the madness of recompiling Race Events events every time there's a GT3/GTE/game update? Can you quit obsoleting our saved replay files?

    @Christopher Elliott, you kindly suggest that we say what we think about it etcetera (positive opinions as much as possible and some negative).

    Rather than writing a novel, I would say just this :

    Can we FINALLY know where rFactor 2 will be very concretely in 6 months and 1 years (if your plans go as planned).

    Say anything that doesn't have to be a secret !!

    Where are we going ?

    To support rFactor 2, you need a totally inordinate patience, HELP US TO BE PATIENT !!

    You'll be driving cars on tracks in it for 6 months to a year from now.

    Post #2 vs Post #5.
    What if, 4 years ago, you were given a concrete absolute guarantee that the UI would be completed in 12 months. How would that matter in the face of the actual time it has taken?

    Probably not that hard to know where we'll be 6 months from now... overall... but the devil is in details I guess...

    We'll, probably, have the new half baked UI as the only choice until they polish it... sort of... but I can already feel the flow of complaint...
    We'll have some offical server running the 'best' content like the gt3, gte/lmp2 and the porsche cup...
    They'll keep updating little by little the cars and track with new materials like they've been doing...
    And release some new car and track here and there like usual...

    My preference would be to focus a lot more on core content standard and accuracy... especially now that visual stuff like texture shading and lightning have been adressed for the most part.
    Some core componnent fix/improvement would be welcome... soft tire degradation accuracy... track temps influence... no more deflated tire as a mandatory choice would be nice... those kind of thing...
    Up a bit the overall sense of detail and accuracy of content... right now we have poorely represented dashboards... no real flash light implemented... those kind of detail goes a long way... lost of traction light for car like the porsche gte... etc...

    But I'm not holding my breath... I know that's not the direction the team is aiming for... and that's fair enough I guess.

    Don't forget to update the crazy trackwidth on the rear of the Callaway GT3. Never understood why the car got released that way.

    Otherwise great roadmap! Can't wait to have my fav track in the world in rf2.
