    Just have a look at the release notes for BeamNG.drive's latest "minor" update that's just dropped: https://www.beamng.com/game/news/patch/beamng-drive-v0-24-1/

    I know they have a slightly bigger dev team, but it's still relatively small (~30). If BeamNG could get a decent tyre model, FFB and timing, then they'd be light years ahead of rF2.

    So whilst here we have an update with driver labels or helmets, here's the actual list of things BeamNG.drive changed in this "minor" update:
    Vehicles
    • NEW VEHICLE - Bruckell Bastion
      • Full-size sporty RWD sedan
      • Longitudinal V6, V8 engine options with various super- and turbocharging choices
      • Many customization parts, wide body kit, spoilers, roll cage, AWD option and more
      • A good variety of configurations including many factory models as well as ‘Drag’, ‘Drift’, ‘Police’, ‘Track', an insane ‘Redtail" version and more
      • Modern driving and safety systems keep all the power under control
      • Full-size sporty RWD sedan
      • 20 Configs:
        • Police (with all new detailed interior)

        • Drag (most powerful car so far)
        • Taxi
        • Base
        • Sport

    now we might have an idea where the ressources went that were supposed to deliver on the RF2 Roadmap. They probably were all used to fix the broken mess of the Nascar game to be able to generate some cash in the X-mas season. I get the logic behind that and would have done the same. The only problem is that it does not seem to have worked out. Difficult to say where it will go from here but thrilling to watch.

    My hope is that whatever comes out of this there still will be that Sim where the driving is so satisfying. I am not sure whether this is going to happen. From a business logic pov it might still make more sense to fix the Nascar thing rather than spending on RF2 due to still higher revenue potential. In this case the best thing to happen would be to sell it on to another round of enthusiasts. If they dont make it to easy pickup racing there just wont be enough new players to join.

    Guys, be carefull with YT videos from Austin. He even admits throughout the video to have no idea about stock market research. Such issues are more complex than 3-minute-videos by a youtuber. Let's atleast wait for the Roadmap before the end of Dec. and we might know a bit more than some guesses from an ex SMS employer. ;)

    There is no magic knowledge in a company stock dropping from 30 USB to 4.5USD per stock in less than a year.

    EDIT: USB == USD :-D

    Exactly, don't need to work for Merrill Lynch to see that is a very bad thing. It does appear that there is definitely some smoke here.

    Btw if you check steamdb, daily active player of RF2 and AMS2 are about the same, ACC is a few times more and much more for beam Ng . In that case people are praising AMS2 a lot more than RF2. However there seems to be about same amount of people playing rf2 ). Not sure if it mean anything but I hope rf2 can get better

    It is really amazing to witness a PSU with 30 USB slots, what a time to be alive.

    Reading through this thread....I don't know what to say. If the Dev's are reading this and I am sure some are...they are either hanging their heads in shame, or laughing.

    I am relatively new to rF2 and it is, without doubt, the best racing sim (game) available. I know it was a bit of a learning curve to get it running properly and to my satisfaction on my PC, but that is to be expected with a sim of this caliber. It is not a console "racing game". It takes a little bit of work and research on the players part to get it running right.

    I personally don't have any issues with the so called "lack of progress". But that's just me. I know a lot of you guys have been invested in this "game" since day one, and I am late to the party. I will say, as a newcomer to the rF2 experience overall...it is a amazing sim, better than any other game available on STEAM. Since I started playing this, no other sim comes close. I have faith.

    I liked when BeamNG was a crash simulator.

    Maybe with a bit of luck rF2 ends in the right hands.

    I understand that, but as a "New Guy" to this game...it is heads and tails better as it is compared to the alternatives available on STEAM. The other games are just as buggy, in different ways. The core driving experience is what rF2 is all about to me. Nothing else compares.

    I hope the devs have something up their sleeve to surprise and get everyone excited again. If they don't? Well, it is still better than the alternatives.
