    I'd rather have some of the things discussed here fixed earlier than, for example, putting the tire compounds on the overlay.
    There are details that I don't think are too difficult to fix and that EVERY user uses / needs. You only use the overlay if you do a broadcast, and how many people are going to watch it ???, it is a matter of priorities, what is more important, the player or the spectator?

    Not sure if this has been asked before but having the possibility to navigate through the UI with my wheel Dpad is on top of my list

    something ala ACC or AMS2 would be a great addition in my views here

    Am I alone thinking this feature would benefit the perception of this new UI then?

    Is that because it would feel consolish in the way navgating menus?

    But then most other PC sims provide this support so difficult for me to understad maybe someone can share insiders views here?

    Since this is a 'wishlist' I think every wheel offered by every manufacturer like Fanatec, TM, CS etc all should supply a digital image of the various wheels. That way, for users who have multiple wheels, or users that display the wheel in the cockpit, the digital wheel would emulate the physical one. (I know my super large BMW wheel won't fit in an F1 cockpit, but I'm WISHIN'. ) I'd even go so far as to provide a template where users can match labels for whatever assignments they have made for each physical button. Kodi could make a fortune painting wheels to match an individual's sim wheel for each car he drives....

    Navigating the menus with the steering wheel has always been confusing for me, but I´m sure it would be smooth if I gave it some time; seems rather useful for people that may not have their keybard and mouse at hand in their rig.

    I´ve always wanted to have the image of my steering wheel in game too, like some old console games had. Probably just for the base or most common wheels of any model, but it would be really helpful since the buttons of my steering wheel don´t match their in-game names.
    I have multiple profiles for different types of cars and it´s always really annoying to remember which button I mapped where!

    The idea of having our own wheel ingame is good, but is more complicated.
    Everything in the game is a 3D model, then the posibility to put an image of a wheel is not an option. The 3D model of the wheel should fit with in the car and the hands of the driver and this can difer from one car to another.

    Note: Furthermore, this has nothing to do with the UI

    Couldn't agree more, AMS2 has a perfect UI for example, which is even more perfect with gamepad use. I don't understand why S397 chose for this "new" UI.

    Don't know about gamepad but AMS2 UI design/usability/performance is top notch.

    I personally don't think that AMS2 UI is that great but it is certainly better than rf2's. Now raceroom sea to have an outstanding UI now. Was on there tonight for first time in about a year and it is very impressive now.
