    Oh vmods why do you ruin every chance I have to play pickup games...where does one download nurburgring v. 0.5, for that matter where does one download a myriad of other old version tracks (that i have no intention of ever playing but that must none the less reside on my drive) so I can join the williams F2 server running croft...the track and mod I want to play...vmods you sucketh so...rfactor 2 thanks for making root canal surgery appear so relatively painless in comparison to trying to play a quick pick up game with your oh so wonderful vmod system.

    I tried this time I really did, search through forums at ISI, Racedepartment, nogrip, driving italia...the two hours I had to play got whittled down to one trying to meet the requirements of the vmod on the server I wanted to join.

    I'm a good christian, I don't usually swear alot, but ISI you and your dumb ass system have broken me down.

    Off to play single player again...

    Cant blame ISI for what people host on there servers. Do some research, doesnt take long to find stuff. Sometimes the content on servers are private, ISI also to blame for that?

    Okay...what strange servers are you trying to join!? I never have this problem... and IF I do, I'll not bother joining it because I don't want old version tracks anyway. There's many servers with only a few up-to-date tracks needed out there. It's only the IsR servers (very good and popular though) that you'll need to download some strange fantasy tracks for, that can be found only at their website... But otherwise there's no problem.

    As Magzire says, you can't blame anyone else than the server host for including old or/and too many tracks in the trackrotation.

    I agree. I never include unneeded tracks in my server vmods but is a pain so I don't blame other admins who don't. System is retarded. Period.

    I hate the vmod concept and tying cars to tracks. All I want is to download tracks and mods to run anywhere at anytime. At the moment I have double-ups on tracks because they are tied to various mods. I don't want double-ups taking up drive space.

    Apart from the whine, rF2 is coming along very nicely now.

    Not being a smartarse here but is it not possible to run all cars and tracks on a server, do they have to have specific mods with alloted tracks?
    My league will eventually switch over to RF2 but we would like to know all the intricacies involved with doing it.

    No, its not possible to run all cars and tracks on a server. Every car and track that is included in server configuration (.vmod) must be present on server and client.

    I raced one an ISR server yesterday and it required me to download an older version of some track. It kind of sucks that these servers keep on using old content. It's even worse if they use obscure tracks which can only be found in the deep, dark trenches of the internet.

    Have you checked their forums, they have a section for their servers and the vmods. They also list the tracks required with links to download. I think the admins do a pretty good job and I usually find myself racing there quite a bit.

    Yeah rf1 was much better, on 5% of the servers we would not get mismatches :p

    Its the same story really, but reversed. not much has changed. people still not able to race certain servers, but now before they enter as apposed to finding out on the server and having to leave anyways.

    i'm not advocating the system btw, or slaying it down. I have my concerns as well, mainly as server admin for a league, its going to require some good creative thinking to get everything optimized in terms of how we set things up and how easy people can join.

    And I suspect in the future more server admins will give this all a good brain-session. otherwise their servers remain empty perhaps. community-push and all. we might be better off if we could get something in the wiki for this, a quick tut. on how to setup a server, what the pitfalls are, what not to do, etc.

    It would help if all ISI content, mods and tracks, would simply be available online, no vmods nothing, just host and join if server is set to ISI stuff. or even a default isi-vmod that comes with the sim. that would certainly help the pickup racing allot.
