    I do not know why they make this graphics choice :

    Put hundreds of caravans very little visible, but make the grass in 2D while it is less than 5 meters from the eyes of the sim racer.

    Take, for example, Okayama, a newly made track by a modder :

    The grass is beautiful associated with very good performances (unlike Sebring).

    The performance is not in question, so what determines this choice ?
    Artistic choice ?

    I do not find this choice relevant.
    Grass and flowers rather than hundreds of caravans ! Or both :D

    racetrack vs grass, which is more important?
    infield objects vs grass, which is more important?
    3d trees vs grass, which is more important?
    dynamic shadows vs grass, which is more important?
    skybox vs grass, which is more important?

    btw...SEBRING is probably close in age as Silverstone and had only been marginally updated over the years...(hence the bumps)it is mostly flat AND old looking....

    Completely addictive, it's a fantastic job!!!.

    BTW, a constructive criticism?, hopefully taken into account and they are two "irrelevant" details. ;)
    Is it possible that the white and yellow stripes on the side of the road are dirty, stained, etc? they look like new, a small detail to add immersion.
    And the flashes of the photos? Another irrelevant but beautiful detail, the tracks of VirtuaLM have it, it would be nice to see them.

    :D

    Guys while this looks great and I do agree with that the race track surface should be as close as possibly to the real thing and, the car to react to the surface changes, the surrounds don't have to be perfect. You should probably concentrate on something like Huds AND trackmapping etc. THAT would be nice.

    Wheels below sometimes is because the lack of tire deformation

    Gold standard on cars too, which are laser scanned. You can see the lack of internal details on rf2 cars.

    We have the Ac_spa here, which is a ls version made for assetto Corsa and converted to rf2, pretty good

    Absolutely great track. You guys did an amazing job. Very well done.
    One question:
    When I'm driving the 24h layout at 6-7 pm you can watch the sundown. When I'm driving the school layout, there is the blackest night at the same time?
    Why is that?
    Thanks again guys for this beauty.
    Cheers

    Does make it work a bit...average is 48.5 fps, still amazing. Low is 28 at one part of the track.

    And like Silverstone it's an old air force base (and I believe Sebring is STILL an active GA airport when there's no racing). So it's going to be flat. Not many airfields have elevation changes, unless it's that one on the side of Everest that literally goes off a cliff.

    Its a big step up for rf2. Also graphically the tracks looks a step up from the stuff that came before.
    Great job guys.

    The night lighting is incredible. Dusk to night, from the sun to the trackside lights, is beyond anything I ever thought id see in a sim
