    It's kind of disappointing to see an in-game store being implemented when basic hud features like trackmap & radar are still missing.

    Looks promising, but the best feature for buyers would be to include discounts on packs when you own part of it it’s content (like it’s done in Raceroom)

    Yeah especially radar would be useful.

    This will help new users and it improves the experience for everyone. It's a lot easier to navigate than the Steam store page, and easier to find too. Now I can easily see which items I own and which ones I don't yet.

    Good job. Now looks and feels something a little more akin to R3E.

    Great, good visualization of current owned and available items.
    Now please add a way to handle duplicates specially when buying packs (ej: discount the item price from the pack)

    Very good, thanks. As for track maps and radars, I prefer to have some choice or tailor my own so I use sim hub

    You're basically asking that they put all individual items at the discounted price as they are in the packs. Then they could remove packs too (maybe individual items would go again higher in price) and we would be asking for packs at reduced prices. And restart again.

    Not necessarily. They could just discount the pack by the proportion of the item in the pack. e.g. if you bought a car for 4.99 and then decide to buy a pack that contains that car, the discount could be 3.00 instead of the full 4.99. You'd still be paying more but at least you'd get some discount.

    I didn't think "store items" contained that ability on a Steam level?

    No, that capability is not available within Steam, unfortunately. This is more of a wish list item.

    Maybe they can sell items outside of Steam like Raceroom does and bypass these restrictions, get rid of the Steam expense, make more money and pass some of the savings onto users.

    14 cars in the GT3 packsd for 35 dollars. Current US price per car is $4.89. That's just over $62.00. Seems like there already is a huge built in discount, more than a duplicate or two, or three...

    Someone experienced leave lags when driving on a server after this "Ingame Store" update?
    If running rF2 for about 1.7k hours, mostly driven online. I've never had any leave lags and since this update today i got leave lags in serveral races, sometimes multiple times. Also other players experienced leave lags since today.
    Leave lag duration is about 1s and if someone would see them, i can cut a short video from my stream.

    To get all the cars individually that are currently in the GT3 Pack, there are 12 to buy not 14, because the Audi and the Bentley each contain 2 cars when purchased individually.

    All items are priced in Euros and converted to your local currency (if not Euros). So individual cars are all priced at 4.99€ and the GT3 pack is 36€, about 40% discount.

    So $58.68 in US dollars if you buy all 12 cars separately.(I did see that discrepancy between the new store showing 12 cars and the Steam store showing 14, should have remembered the two free cars. thanks) That still works out to 4+ essentially free cars when comparing prices. If you are missing 4 cars when you need the entire pack, you are buying the cars in a very inefficient manner. We can only advise, wait for seasonal sales, buy packs.

    Any mechanisms to prevent people from buying the same content twice?

    I have all the Kartsim content and within the packs tab, rF2 shows that I own 15 of 20 of the available packs, the missing being the Kart Sim packages.I can add all 5 Kart Sim packs into the basket for purchase without any warnings.

    What is to stop an absent minded person from accidentally re-purchasing content or buying content over and over (such as some of the Kart Sim packs having the same content) by mistake?
