    Sebring bumps are undulations, not cracks and holes. Even if it would be, the mesh resolution is not great enough for those features.

    Nordschleife bumpyness is lesser than Sebring for sure. Unless you are choping kerbs. Of course Nords has more intense speeds and compression zones, elevation changes in general.

    You can also adjust setup to modify steering forces. Caster, rideheights, toe, camber, springs, dampers, downforce levels, fuel load, tire pressure.

    I was one of the people waiting with baited breath for this track for a year. It's hard to fixate on the little imperfections over the sheer joy of driving a Nordschleife render this detailed. It legitimately took a part of me back to being there in person. Those terrifying bumps, jumps and compressions you don't realize exist with the other renders of the track somehow translate in rF 2. You get everything other than the sheer weight of g-forces bearing down on your body.

    Signed up here just to congratulate 397 on a great job, and to also share this video to those who are curious of how it compares to our old version.

    I agree its fantastic track but on my side worst fps of all 100 tracks. Only Sveg Raceway has similar performance.

    I'm running an OSW 20nm with a Fanatec F1 rim*.
    It's only the Karousel that's uncomfortable.
    However the GT3 Cup is much harsher on the jolts than the other GT3/GTE cars I've tested. Most cars I use a 65% multiplier but this one at 55%. I don't think I could do a 2 hour stint in it but the others are fine.
    That car doesn't offer caster, spring rate or damper adjustment either so not much can be done. Has anyone else seen someone's sense if humour in the setup menu for GT3 Cup?
    The diff preload; if you select the min 70nm it's says "70nm worn out".
    *That rim btw has stood up just great to the OSW forces for say 3 years now. It's chassis is steel plate so it's a good rim.

    The Nords drive is very nice with AF Pro. With SC4 I use either responsive or default mode depending on the car though I have few times dropped to Soft because even though AF max strength is 13nm it can get very tiring with constant strong corner forces. Thankfully sc4 can be changed on the fly.

    Now if we can have more settings for Horizon lock please devs !?

    Still a good watch

    Few more notes about Nordschleife I have to share.

    I usually don't use grip presets because groove looks too dark for me for already dark tarmac, but naturally I sometimes need high grip preset to test maximum possible pace I/car has in Nordschleife. I drove with medium preset yseterday, and I couldn't help but feeling that it is wrong. I have developed an opinion that it might be too strict, too narrow at lots of turns. I suppose it was created by running AI ? Because AI drives so strictly on predefined path, and it results in weirdly narrow groove path at many turns, where it should get wider. At various places it feels right to be narrow and strict, but not everywhere, there are turns where it feels like it should grow wider indeed. I suppose if the line would be created by using real road data from actual real people racing around, then it should have more realistic results, unless all of them are aliens, who drive through turns in a margin of error from ideal line of few centimeters every time in 20km track.

    Another thing which definitely lacks are replay cameras. I don't think that current set looks nice, I understand that there is need for zoomed out camera set to show race action better, but it does also miss action slightly too much. Which is common issue with trackside cams. Another thing is that there isn't a set that would display individual car action better, there are so many track places where I would wish to observe a car better through replay.

    Thanks and your welcome.

    This track is really bad ass, very nice to hot-lap on it.

    The only backdraw for me are the tree shadows on the grounds, it's strange... I guess if someone is epileptic better to be careful, it's seems the shadow refresh rate is different of the rest of the 3D world. As a non-native English speaker I'm not able to describe the bad feeling.

    Aside that, it's so funny.

    Yeah, replay cameras are lame... to wide, no car behaviour, no good screenshots... just boring!

    It's a general problem of rFactor2... the sim that does that best is iRacing.

    in the thread itself, I already told Christopher Elliott if they were going to put other TV cameras, I am still waiting for an answer, well I really do not expect it anymore, but hey, it is a saying, an irony;).......:(:(:confused::confused::cool:

    Balance Of Performance. In many racing series, like the GT3 events or Le Mans/WEC, the organizers attempt to balance the various cars so that big blocky heavy cars like a Bentley can compete against a Ferrari or Lamborghini. They adjust power and weight and sometimes how big a fuel tank is to try and regulate close racing among wildlly different cars.

    (Equalising the pace of the cars by adjusting weight, power, drag, fuel tank size, aero grip, minimum ride height)

    Thread is about nordschleife. "what does bop mean in roadmap?"

    Cmon. This is not discord.

    Yesterday I have driven a lot of nordschleife, planing to drive it for few hours again today. So the differences in update whould be perceived even more. Awesome track.
