    Comparing AC to rF2 is a bit tricky.

    The way I see rF2 - lots of features but most of them far from being complete.
    The way I see AC - much less features, but much closer to being complete.

    So AC gives better impression at first glance, but then it cannot offer much more (at least not the tech demo, but that's to be expected of tech demos :) ).
    rF2 doesn't give such good impressions, but it's hard to deny it's growing potential, when you consider all features being worked on.

    For me, there's no clear winner and I enjoy both, but I'm not fully satisfied by either.

    And I don't think this comparison will start to look different anytime soon. AC will have more and more features added, while rF2 will have existing features more and more improved. Overall score will remain pretty much the same, I guess.

    i will own and play both of them anyway, so i don't really care which is 'best'.
    i think that both games will serve different purposes. when i want to race a more road car around tracks, then AC may be a better choice with those bmws and ferraris. and also rf2 is a better choice if i want to race real touringcars or open wheelers of different classes.

    Nobody cares about weather. That is why online races never use it.

    I remember a great 1 hour online race with Brabhams (soon after the release of it, and Brianza I guess) and rainy weather. God, that was the most sweaty race I've done. I think it was announced here on the forums, server was full. Wet weather was quite unfinished and buggy (nothing has changed since, I guess) but from time to time it was really great.

    Anyway, yes some people cares about weather. But it has to be better than right now.

    I like to race with rainy weather, but in rF2 it is very very slippery when it rains!

    Well thats disappointing now isnt it. Music is way too good and dramatic for a video like that, and I'm not sure is he tryin to show the short comings of AC in this one, but it sure as hell does.

    Once we have a random weather option I reckon weather effects will get a lot more use. At least for me they will :)

    Totally agree with you Mr Beam, obviously never had a good league race online with GTR Evo, we always had variable weather option on, it had its flaws, but everyone was checking the forecast prior to entering the track, gave another twist in the weekends racing. Looking foward to where RF2 goes with this option.

    How does a car like that get so high over a ripple, then magically slide on 2 wheels right across the track.


    Anyone show me a real Elise pulling this off corner after corner.

    I also want to drive lot more with dry weather before I'm ready to move on to wet weather or to changing weather conditions.

    Random weather and scattered sun rays through scattered cloud would be a good addition to rF2 next development step. Or maybe an upgrade to the graphic engine (gMotor) to look like this video below (fingers crossed).



    I am now thinking that rF2's (or any future version of rFactor) biggest challenger is itself, with a little help/push from Assetto Corsa, iRacing, and/or other sim racing titles.

    another interesting feature in AC is the clutch... you just can't throw in any gear like in rF2... I think that's one of the points ISI needs to work on very fast...
    at the end, one sim will learn from the other. What worries me however is the pace of developement of rF2... If you see that AC needed only a bit more than a year to get where they are... it's very promising...

    I remember that race too, it was great. I was racing in a dark room with a big 3DTV in stereoscopic 3D. And when it started to rain it was getting colder in the room and i thought someone opened a window, but my brain tricked me.

    I like AC, but please stop compare a game that has a lot of features like rF2 with AC!
    I appreciate what Kunos are doing, but it is more easy to have a very good looking game when you don't have to do with dinamic lighting, variabile weather, Real road, pitstop and and...............!

    He he, we all were there in that race (it was arranged by Postipate http://isiforums.net/f/showthread.php/6864-25-laps-at-Monza-friday-24-00-(gmt-2)), what I do remember while I was chasing you, when it started raining I slowed down but after some time I realised it wasnt very slippery, not a big difference in lap times.

    No it seems like in the beginning it's no difference, it takes several laps until it gets slippery, even if the track looks reeeaaally wet. This has not changed, because I took Corvette for a drive around Poznan, and I started practice with rainy weather. I was really careful when leaving pits but soon realised it felt like dry tarmac. But after a couple of laps it started to feel really slippery (at this time, there actually was a dry racingline in the middle but still it was more slippery than in the beginning, LOL) :)
