    Would I be able to use my rF2 DLCs? I don't want to pay another bag of money otherwise.

    It has a search box to show just what you want. Nice feature to shrink the list.

    Yes! I was going to mention that, but forgot as I was writing out my comment. As a modder/painter, that is time that is easily wasted in having to make the icons. Weather it be a one button icon creator, or IMO a small showroom spinner. Just something to make that an automated process, instead of manual labor.

    Instead of one big join server button, maybe display both join as a spectator (spectate) and regular join (drive) buttons. With what is shown in the video we have a an extra click and an extra modal displayed until we join

    Nice video but you should also display the car/class name somewhere - in sepate column or in description? - (most of times this is visible in server name, but not always..)

    I wonder how you missed this..

    Missed it, or made a decision not to include it for various reasons? Making a statement of "I wonder how you missed this" without any inside knowledge of the process is rather disrespectful in my opinion.

    That said, it would be nice to include going forward, and cannot be discounted for sure.

    Well, why not include it? Seems like the non inclusion can only mean missing it.

    How can you decide to join a race if you don't know which car or cars are being raced?
    I have been in this position a fair few times, which is why I race in other games/sims, but would love to race in RF2 more:(

    I did not mean to be disrespectful by any means. But when you join a mp session, you need to know (basically) 2 things: the track and the car you will race with. So for me this was self-evident

    Maybe description could be changed to car and track, I'm no software guru, but to me seems the simplest way and quickest way to fix this issue.

    I think it's up to the server admins to put it in the vmod so everyone can see what cars are required, (XFactor GT3 R1 S1_22) and maybe there should be some way of showing if the vmod has multiple tracks as well.

    Looks good. One thing is bugging me. I think possibility to switch these two windows in places would be nice depending on what is more needed for user at the moment. IMO the standard window for chat is just too tiny in a lot of occasions.

    @Ruben - "these videos are awesomely well done. Thank you for producing them."... and Paul did a fine job as "the talking dude" ;-)

    I think the official servers are a huge plus. I hope that they are filled with human drivers most of the time and not just AI!

    That would be good Idea (Doesn't S397 already has this tool but never released it)... Personally I didn't find doing it manually too time consuming (if you just doing one single car model), The issue is that all need to be done in one sitting so you have the same camera angle.
    It's impossible to get the same camera angle right if you split the icon generation in multiple sessions.
