    Hello I am big into iRacing but I wanted to try out rfactor so I can race any car on any track (or so I was told) with Modding.

    I bought RF2 but all I can find are i guess the default cars and tracks from their website is there a place to get the quality modded content

    Also does anyone have kindoff a default graphic and wheel/pedal setting that look and feel correct. I have 3 monitor with a decent computer and fanatec csr wheel and club sport v2 pedals.

    Cheers thanks
    True Racer

    You CAN race whatever you want, wherever you want. You have to look into creating a vmod aka. .rfmod (a thing that 'points' towards which installed components to use)

    https://youtu.be/KjQ_eo2zsl4?t=1m43s This is a good video for creating vmods... (the registering thing starting at https://youtu.be/KjQ_eo2zsl4?t=2m11s is not a thing anymore - it's automated today)

    So you create an .rfmod which you install in the mod manager, fire up the game again and the referenced cars and tracks you've selected in the mas2 tool will be selectable in game. And you can host a server, using that mod and you can race your mates in those designated cars/tracks. Using the Host button in the Launcher, naturally :)

    Three monitors is both a blessing and a curse I think.
    Three monitors often requires more than one GPU and the SLI is not the most smoothest experience with rF2, you really have to tweak ingame and GPU-settings to make it work well and still look all right... I haven't played with it myself but a friend has, using nVidia inspector. But he did get a decent and 50 fps+ result.

    I'm sure there are someone here on the forum, that would be able to help you.

    Oh, and if you have anymore questions or are entering problems playing with the vmod thing, let me know and I'll do my best to help.

    I just got rf2 last week myself and also big into iracing, I also running triples with a good pc (gtx 980, i7) I am getting 70-90 fps on average). I set have most everything on max settings. I am still learning how it all works, but in the multiplayer list you can join and it will ask if you want to download the missing tracks/cars. I have gotten a lot of stuff this way. Also in the launcher it has a bunch of available content to download there as well. Beyond this I am still learning myself. In single player you can select series and click the all cars/tracks option too and it should list all installed tracks and cars. I know it shows a bunch anyways this way. You are going to be a little disappointed with the graphics overall I think, but some tracks/cars are better than others and still good enough. Iracing is definitely much better in the graphics department, but I think rf2 has the edge in physics and ffb.

    if you want GP tracks done to a good & similar graphical standard, i like racerfactor, fsr also does these well imo. any current F1 circuit you shouldnt have a problem finding.

    this is an rf2 exclusive site i check https://www.facebook.com/*******************/472674422844020, i just noticed they have a website now (http://rfactor2mods.webs.com). i cant tell if theres nothing on it yet or its just behind a registration wall tho. hopefully there will be if not, bc its a major pain to dig through all the posts, but there is some good stuff there (and some pretty awful), hopefully mostve its been linked above though.

    im not sure if they are linked above but a guy called feels3 made some gorgeous smaller tracks before he was hired away by simbin/s3, i would count them as must haves.

    but for the most part, follow this forum & dont be shy about asking if someone mentions a mod you cant find. for some reason rf2 mods simply arent centrally located anywhere yet in the way AC/SCE mods are.

    I learned a lot about Rfactor by racing online with a group of really smart guys, They sometime race on servers with the name Cactus Racing.

    You can make your own mods for offline of course ;)

    Add up to 25 vehicle makes ie: for a Test track, Top Gear, Nords, etc )
    Add only the individual car skins you want.
    Add only the tracks and track layouts you want.

    This one has a single skin for each of the 25 cars
