    Hi all,

    Does anyone know if these two are competitive with each other on track? I'll run them together tonight to see but I thought someone might have already done this?

    I doubt it. I don't think Simtek has been updated to the latest tires, or even dx11. (not sure about that however) I think the AM GT3 cars are closer to S397

    Did an AI test and they're quicker by a few seconds, I need to give them a good BoPping, maybe add 10kg. I strictly have no intention for them to be there other than being AI cannon fodders or to fill up the grid to 104 cars since S397 is never going to have a Ferrari or a Lambo.

    AFAIK, they are nowhere complete to April 2018 standards, needs to have wipers added on.

    I did a race with some of the Simtek cars thrown in with the Endurance Pack and they held up okay.

    Always gives me a little laugh.... Outside of S397 for obvious liability reasons nearly all mods are "nicked" as none of the modders ever contact the original team owners for permission.

    "Nicked" in this context means that the 3D models are taken from another game. Not having a license with the original team owners is a different issue breaking different laws.

    Yeah, I get it, but one of the modders I "nicked" a model from once whined to moon until I pointed out it was my car in real life :) . So yeah, I'll always laugh about it.

    If you took his model without permission then it’s “illegal” in the modding sense (morally as opposed to actually) whether it’s your real life car or not.

    I can’t use the model of a Opel Astra made by someone else and go “it’s my real life car, I can use it”

    Because of all this self righteous moral BS we lost one of the best modding teams in rF2 and more often than not, that's the reason why other modders end up leaving too.....Shame.
    I'll never understand why random Joe's get so riled up about it, as if it was their 3D models being ripped.....let the companies deal with it (as if they even care).

    try the apex mod, you can easily bop the ai strengt per car in tis mod so you can make them on the same speed as the official gt3 pack. The ai Bentley in this pack can be made more on par with the official gt3 cars then the official Bentley,wich as an ai, is way to slow.

    I bet if someone took all their work and slapped a different name on it, they'd be pretty pissed off.

    I bet they would but then again, let them handle it.....My problem is with the self righteous people who have nothing to do with it and give the modders Sh*t as if it was their 3d model being ripped.

    This is literally the reason I want them, to fill the grid out with the Ferrari and Lambo.
