    You're not wrong.
    But on the other side, how much "News" is that ?
    Perhaps if nobody would have asked, the devs wouldn't have told that by themself.
    So what if somebody here would have asked ?

    That graffiti better be spot on!
    I just know that someone somewhere will be really critical if it's not perfect. (don't forget somebody protested the structural merit of the roof supports of one of the stands at Toban and it's a fantasy track!).

    Maybe under these circumstances S397 should postpone the NoS until the end of the year. Everyone should be happy ..

    You mean to deny the right to moan to some individual?

    Like many, I hope that the graphic rendering of the Nords will be closer to Sebring than to Le Mans ....

    That was rather sarcastic meant. No offense. A little space for fun should be?

    Well....what Marcel says and what is going on indeed could be 2 different pairs of shoes. I do not believe they have to work much on it. I guess they finished the track already, and just wait for the sim racing expo to launch it on that kind of stage among the audience.

    I'll be there! For sure!
    Then I go to Mr. Offermanns and say and ask directly: Hello Mr. Offermanns, where can I do the test drive on the NoS?
    (Not the real track, that's around the corner, no no, I mean the Official RF2 NoS ..);):D

    Perhaps you don't have to ask, as you can see big posters a few metres away from their exhibition stand.;)

    It's just an idea, but it would be the perfect place to celebrate this big AAA-track and content together with all of their fans and beyond, because this is a reason that everyone comes around, trying the new track and join their "show". The perfect moment - the release of the Nürburgring/Nordschleife at the Nürburgring/Nordschleife.

    So we saw plenty of Nordschleife yesterday. What do you think ?

    I have very mixed feelings, but I think thats normal because it was presented to be WIP. Still I don't think showing WIP doesn't mean that it is unethical to point out at the lacks, or is it ?

    Track is huge + GP track, and it is insane job just to do basic track in no particular correct order: road, terrain, guardrails, general trees, white lines, transitions between surface objects, kerbs, essential objects, all the graffitis and tags all over the place... All of that and more looks decent and well done, also can be seen in published screenshots, but thats not enough to have a track looking great.

    I was quite bugged out looking at Nords in the stream yesterday basically because I have had much higher expectations for it to be at this moment. Model even though itself appearing great looked quite too empty, I suppose many trackside little stuff is not there yet, big lack of bushes and smaller scale vegetation also could have added a lot emptyness impression. Shading looked a bit boring, lack of colour, but maybe because of the time of the day (though ironically mid day it should be the most colourful). I think track looked better from in car cams than from track external cams, IMO external track cams were not very great. In many occasions shadows looked just too painfully dark. Trees looked mostly dark, and desaturated. Also it did look strangely bouncy, but it may have been because some inaccuracy of showing cars in external cams in rF2 maybe, and also the car is also wip with possibility being too hard for Nordschleife, I thought that looked terrible at places. I was probably put off the most by lack of collours, too dark shadows, and what seemed to be unnaturally bouncy cars, which perhaps was just camera artefact... also racing was quite rough lol

    Sebring looks great, Lemans looks great. So why Nordschleife couldn't look great ? I think it could, but I don't believe that it could be so in less than a month or two. But of course Nordschleife is different, it is bigger, trackside objects are closer to the driver, trees are very close to the driver, shadows are big big deal there.

    I still think vegetation’s( trees,grass, bushes....) look really bad. Even in the new Lemans I don’t like the trees at all. In many third party tracks the vegetation looks much much better IMO.

    I am not too fond of trees at lemans either. Looks uncharacteristic, and trunks are greenish (especially absolutely off for pines) which looks very wrong, perhaps the only thing that I really dislike about Lemans, well perhaps one more is the way realroad looks at it is getting wet with all those rectangular artificial patches appearing..

    Nords obviously missing bushes big time currently. As for grass, there obviously aren't going to be any vertical features of that, just the carpet stuff, but it still can look very good if texturing and shading gets done really well, but it didn't look like that from the stream to me either. I think lawns looks pretty cool at Lemans though.

    I wondered 'when' the Le Mans track was scanned and when the artists environmental photos were taken. We are used to early summer/late spring and 'if' the research was done in the fall, then perhaps that explains why so many were less than enthused about the LM trees. Nords and bushes? I don't have enough experience to compare, I will keep an eye on that though, when the track is released.

    That's a problem since early Isi days in Rf2. A dev told me that they make photos and build their own threes. I think this method lacks of resolution. Branches and leaves look like a single lump and are not finely separated. I prefer the Reiza vegetation. It just looks perfectly
