    @Filip back in the days where the official megane was developed by ISI we observed that the newer more up to date model wasnt so much of enjoy at driving
    so the community modders kept an old CPM tires version which was very cool at driving and develope it further
    if you compare the handling between 2 cars the official is a bit loose and lifeless and the MOd (which is based on the older isi version) has more attitude and also received all the updates from the modder exept the cpm

    After few laps I find this modded version much more stable.
    Have to test it more to make opinion.

    I absolutely love the official Megane Trophy of rF2. Not long ago I drove it at wet2dry conditions in Oulton, and it was amazing it was twitchy and making you cautious and at the same time very controllable in respectable speeds, just like I expect car to be in the wet/damp track. As it dried out it just became even more controllable. So I don't get what you people don't like about it and mod it backwards.

    Also I don't support modding official content in such way of replacing it.

    official car drives and behaves bad compared to MOD
    mod feels more alive and interesting than official which feels like a limited FFB version
    i dont like the official at all

    JUERGEN-BY has "dumbing down" Megane like he did also with Celica GTO IMSA.
    There is no mod in rF2 which is like racing on ice if realistic FOV etc. is used. :rolleyes:

    Mod is like from another planet and from what i know it is based on a previous isi version of Megane

    Hard = realistic or Easy = realistic is a meme of simracing, and has no value at all in describing vehicle handling.

    The funny thing about simulation vs real life, is that everything is inverted, simulation is mirroring real life. If in real life it is challenging to make a perfectly handling car, then in simulation it is challenging to make a car with certain whims.

    After few laps I find official one more "alive".
    TC can't be completely turned off in modded one I guess?

    I dont understand that, it means what? The Renault Megane Trophy Mod was done with permission of ISI, just in case you missed that...

    Strange that they did it so.

    I just expressed my personal opinion that it shouldn't be done.

    Next time someone talks about a car he/she has to add if it is original or modded and modded by what modder. We already saw this happening with Celica just recently. That is a mess.

    Also I totally love Megane by ISI it is just perfect, whats there to change ?

    I seen some mods "endurance" versions. So basically cars made to be a couple of seconds faster, much easier, so you could eat and drink (beer) while racing I suppose, is that modding ?

    I totally disagree with mantsisg.

    Thanks to all modders that share their work be it scratch made or modified version of existing vehicle.

    I don't see anything to be thankful about replacing something what is legit with something which is unclear. Perhaps it would be different if it would be essentially different car, such as with totally different engine, or from different racing series which uses very different specs.... So thats why it is strange that permissions are given.

    Mod creator ^ Juergen states himself in a description of a mod that cars are completely for fun and not meant to be exactly like real life. And thats exactly what improved tires means I suppose. And as I notice there are two simulation branches some people likes to simulate immersion and vibe, and some likes authentic physics, realistic things, and for some simracers those two circles obviously doesn't overlap and we have some arguing.

    I am not an expert of Megane Trophy, I don't know which version has more realistic pace, but original one is very impressive to me. So I just wonder what is there to improve in the first place.

    I don't mind being added to someones ignore list, it is probably best for everybody. But I also don't understand people who writes off others over a single disagreement. If I'd ignore everyone which I have ever disagree with, then I would only have my dog not ignored. Bit it is all good.
