    Tim we are near the beta, and near 2012. Can't we have communication of the progress made. In this thread for exemple, to be in the subject, i remember that sometime ago Scott made a progress report about the tracks.

    It has been a while now, what sup since !?

    Cant we have the list of the tracks who will be in the beta and why not lets be crazy a list of the tracks who will be in rF 2 v1.0

    Scott is too busy.

    The beta should have a track yet to be announced and content isn't final. So we can't do that. 1.0 isn't finalized as far as content. So we can't do that.

    DeDios!!!! Amazing find! I just downloaded the software and took just 27 photos (with my iPhone 4) of a room and was blown away with what it was able to put together. I can only imagine what it could do with higher quality photos and more of them from more locations and angles. This software is mind blowing. As a developer I am probably more amazed then some. I am truly blow away.

    Thanks for sharing!

    In the blurb about the Grand Prix video this was said: "We hope those of you who will want to participate in the open modders beta testing period are almost ready"

    Well its over a month later, are we actually close to the beta?

    Yes. We get closer every second. Main issue over the last month has been the fact that payment and user creation has had issues (which we think are close to all fixed thanks to the community helping Gjon by making test transactions from some other locations). Without a user, the software wouldn't work.

    I hope everyone here will agree that securing payment information trumps a speedy release any day. That said.

    Back to tracks...

    Long long time ago, back when I was young, cars were loud and trees were tall... Gjon and SRT were discussing animated objects in rF2 and mentioned a video of cows eating grass by the track side or something like that.

    Tim, can you please find that video in the archives and dust it off for us to enjoy?

    Some of the anims are so funny! But, honestly, I really don't want to spoil some of it... You WILL eventually find yourself on the wrong side of a fence or something at Spa (with damage off) and having to find yourself a gateway to get back to the track at some point, and driving through fields of horses or cows can be pretty funny. :) I don't want to spoil what some might consider easter eggs. :)

    It's a very small amount of work to do a Cow compared to a crew. It's fuel is always in the same place. :) It is planned, however, but it's something that requires a lot of work to adapt to the different car tire, visor, wing and fuel locations.

    hehe yeah fair point, I can imagine the uproar if the animated tire changes hands are merging with the wheel so it looks naff!
    Hopefully the community can build on animated stuff like this too.

    But you've implemented a standard crew? At least I heard that there is something like mechanicians in the pit lane^^
