    lol ive actually been talking to Renato regarding what they can and cant do, and im pretty sure SMS other than licensing their engine (and technical advice) to reiza wont have anything else to do with AMS2. But hey well see, maybe it might be out before rf2 ui right ?! Im glad they haven't got the rf2 route though, theres no need for an rf2 clone.

    so yea ill stick by my original statement.

    So Reiza wrote something in the description that isn't true? Or are you just making a guess, or was it SMS who made the statement? Either way, I read a lot of bullshit from Ian Bell and SMS throughout the years and PRC selling out to SMS was basicly the sign that people should be careful trusting anything related to SMS. But to each their own. If you think that some of the content shown in the trailer comes out of nowhere, then we have both a very different understanding of what a technical partership is.

    If the engine, which is the core code base of a sim, is Madness, that comes from Slightly Mad Studios and is going to be similar to PC2 rather than rF2.

    Is not it possible that the graphics engine is that of PC2, but that the physical engine is that of rF2 ?

    I do not know anything about it !

    By that logic Grand Tour Game should be similar to rF2 because it uses ISI gMotor 2 engine?

    They probably didn't want to spend 4 years just for the UI to use the RF2 engine :p

    PC2 engine is based on PC1, which in turn is based on Simbin games, which in turn used rF1 engine. So I don't see any way they can go backwards with this move really.

    ok, my error. I always thought they built their own base after GTR2. As you may guess, I've never looked at the PC1 or 2 or even the AC based sims. Not enough time over the years..

    It does indeed, that interview is great, Renato comes across as a man with a massive passion for what he does (just like Aris & Marcel) and nothing will stop him from driving (pun intended) forward with his own vision of what a Racing Sim should be.

    These are very exciting times to be a Sim Racer and I'm lapping it all up (when I get the time to Race that is!).

    I think for future
    rf2 will be the only simulation open to modders

    Good news for us

    Depends how you see it. Certainly a selling point for rF2 and AC. But modding has driven not only sim racing but gaming as a whole forward with some very creative and talented minds. My gaming-(life) wouldn't be what it is, if it wasn't for modding.

    One note from the interview with Renato: No further DLC is planned for rF2. I totally understand but I'm sad about it

    I'm so thankful they didn't go with the rF2 engine.

    Will be nice to have a secondary sim again
    ( as well as Rfactor2 )

    I’ll not jump into A2 early I’ll await reviews & first few updates etc before I decide screenshots look nice as they always do

    Do you mean graphics engine, not physics engine, right ?

    Unless one goes with the other.

    Graphics engine of rF2 is not bad either. Not very good for replays and screenshots though. But real time thats where it is at.

    Both. In the RD interview it comes to light that S397 was hamstringing Reiza by only showing them bits and pieces of code, and then only on a "need-to-know" basis.

    The new Automobilista will not use the engine physics of rF2 which is IMO the very best realisc physics engine in a sim :

    I would not buy Automibilista 2.

    I stopped for a long time to "collect" the sim/simcade/mods.

    I favor the most realistic sim (rF2), associated with the most realistic cars.
