    The historic chicane at Monaco is certainly as much of a challenge to get right in rFactor 2 as it was in real life. The scene of Lorenzo Bandini's fatal accident in 1967, it was an extremely tight transition between the cliff road and harbor road beside it. The chicane is probably the most difficult turn at the historic track, closely followed by turn one and the entry into Casino square.

    The approach to the chicane is very important. You must stay to the right or you risk reducing your possible angles far too much. The escape road of the chicane is filled with bales of hay which you can easily slide through, sending them flying until you hit something more solid. The chicane has objects which are concrete, wood, supported by sandbags, etc, and these all react in the way you would expect. Clipping the chicane can lead you to go spinning down the following straight or even send you into the air, landing in the water of the harbor.

    Nice screens!
    I have only a question, is there HDR in these screens?

    Yes, but it's the middle of the day so it isn't as dramatic as seen in most of the shots.

    Love the screenshots!

    Now, if possible, I want to see some rain and couple of new GT cars :)

    Great pictures Tim and thanks for the warning, but until the beta test, I've forgotten already.
    I can not remember things only for 7 days ;)



    I know a good movie: Give the monkey sugar (you're our Ornella Muti) :D

    Love the 'Shell' logo!
    Does the water have real-time reflections too?

    I believe I've seen water reflection of the 'Red River' at Spa. ;) But I can't say I have noticed at Monaco. The water does move though. :)

    I like all in this screenshots, specially the way the mountain look and the nice textures in the walls and the rocks.

    Nice!
    I can see some reflection on the 2nd screenshot, looks like the shape of the mountain.

    Another question about reflections. The 3rd screen shot show some nice sharp reflection (the boats on the right), but the 1st screenshot shows a very 'matte' car-material (no clear reflection).

    P.S. Love the trees!

    Very nice screens Tim! I like the overall "feeling" of the scene.

    How about the same place, but in heavy rain (sort of "dangerous chicane in extreme conditions" scenario)? :D Are you far enough with weather developement to show something like that?

    Thanks none the less :)

    Positive comment: Thanks for posting more screenshots!

    Negative comment: Next time, can you (or whoever took these) please not introduce such horrid compression artifacts?

    Could it be the heat haze you're meaning?

    the car in the screens looks like a cross between the 1968 Brabham, 1968 BRM and the classical Lotus 49 exhausts.
