    There are just too much flavours of the same content to make pickup racing feasible again: many servers sports a slightly modded version of a car, and you end having to dowload all the content just to see if the race is already started. Despite having something like 25GB of various content, from cars to track, I'm still required to download more, just to enter the server, just to discover if I like the content I downloaded and to decide if I can race with it. Why when in the same timeframe I can play 2 matches on MechWarrior Online or make some offline session?
    There could be 2 solutions: leagues modded content that is changed just to insert pilots name, should not count as a completely new mod , or people who like to have open servers, should stick to official content.
    The first condition I don't know if it is achievable, the second is already handy, but I fear that leagues are not much interested in official content for their purposes.

    I really hope this update comes Today 20/12/16 somewhere because it is already 21/10/16 where i live and can you imagine the crap people will give S397 if they start to not deliver what they said ?

    It seems people are expecting some things that are not to be in today's update, a bit too much hype for bug fixes lol

    forget updates, look forward to the new dx11 re-launched version of rfactor 2 by studio 397

    anything in the meantime is a bonus, best/please lose any sense of entitlement ,
    what is actually happening here is a total god send -roll on release Q1 2017

    It hasn't been specified, 20th of which time zone - so I'd say it's safe to assume, that might be 20th for Europe.

    EDIT: I was reffering to the roadmap, where it was only said it will be on 20th.

    What features exactly, that you can't have already in DX9? :)

    Well you can´t avoid that if you want to drive some special content, you have to download it! :confused:
    If you don´t want the content that is on the one server, look for another one, or - best solution - enter a league where you always come back to.

    Better performance on new generation gfx-cards, I realize this has been declined as factual, but it is.

    It will be fine, I haven't ran into any issues other than using the wrong preprojection settings. :)

    All those you quoted, can be done in DX9 (check Crysis 1 for example).

    What part of "pick up racing" was not clear enough?
    I look at open servers with people inside if I want to try a quick race, and I can even close an eye for what I download, for the sake of multiplayer experience. But after having dowloaded 300 400 mb, that takes time, everything could have changed, race could be started or over, and the server emptied.
    If you want to play jokes,welcome, but someone posed a problem and I took my viewpoint on it.

    Can I rely on you good people to post when it's live? As I don't have it installed now, I'll just get the old version if I click too early.
