    I recently tried Sebring with the Skip Barber, and it was one of the best sim-driving experiences I've ever had :)
    For one thing, the skippy seemed to have a slightly more stable cockpit view which is important for me because i struggle badly with motion headaches on this track with other cars. But also, the tyres, the ffb and the bumps worked so nicely together. Also being a lower powered car, I was able to throw some nice long slides, and the car just surfed from bump to bump in a lovely dynamic drift :D

    And because the cockpit was stabilised a bit more, I was actually able to start to learn the twisty back half of the track, and so was able to confidently throw those drifts, and brake almost the right amount for each turn, so that was all really nice :)
    Thanks to 397 and the track builders who worked on it :)
    And thanks ISI/397 for the Skippy. Hadn't driven it in a long time - recommended! :D

    Bought the track today. It's my system or now the replay is in "slow motion" by default?

    I have a good performance (125fps) with a GTX 1060, but you feel like the there is some stuttering even if you can't see it.

    it's great to have a realistic track, I really enjoy (and fight) the lot of bumps. Now 12 hs means something different.

    How can I use this track in DevMod? I tried to copy the track from "locations" to the same folder in DevMod but I get the error "CUBE error loading scene file". I want to test suspension settings that's why I need it.


    [EDIT]: SOLVED, I had put all the files in the newest folder (1.01) with the newest .mft

    Studio 397. Thank you. Superb track. I HATE driving the same track over and over again but not this one. There's so much detail. So much texture! The LMPs, GTEs, and GT3s are "home" here.

    In case anyone's wondering this track has 32 unique pitspots, and allows 2 cars per pit group.
    There's a 'bug' in regard to the pit group order in the track's .gdb file. They entire 'pitgroup order' block, needs to be before the closing brace, } , i.e. right after the statement, SettingsAI = Sebring_12H_RC.svm

    The track takes close to 5 minutes to load a 48 car grid with AI opponents, even though I have an SSD. Nordschleife takes 1 minute with 32 car grid. Frame rate maxed out at 25 fps. RAM usage was 11.1 GB, making my 12GB near worthless. CPU occupancy, 100%; Ctrl + C to display bar.

    If you plan to run this with a grid near that, and have a non-modern PC, you've been warned.

    I have passed this on, thanks.

    Sebring will/does generally take longer to load because of the details in the road mesh not to mention the whole track itself, regardless of whether you load with AI or not you will notice longer loading times even on an SSD. The "Full Layout" is quicker in this regard as the Environment around the track was removed to make it feel more like a Track Day scenario with less details, which in turn also helps with FPS.

    I dont have iRacings version but one can clearly feel a difference in laserscanned tracks VS not laser scanned
    and this is why I still hold iracing in high regard, its almost not comparable with non laserscanned tracks,
    so yes pls, more laserscanned tracks to rFactor 2! :cool:

    Any advice on improving draw distance, on the non 12 hour layout? 8GB of ram was utilized by rF2; FPS was averaging 35 on an Intel 4670k at 3.8Ghz.

    Edit: System spec is just like sig, but an intel instead of AMD.

    By that I meant "Is it the video card that's the issue?"

    So it's a Intel Phenom II 1055T X6. ;)
    Sorry, couldn't resist.
    Might be time to update sig then?
