    Tearing would happen if your framerate changed and is no longer synced, and getting less than your monitors refresh rate.

    Mirrors on F3 Eve look great, best of any Historic track.

    Ai no drama here watching Races only

    First, it is nice to see an update soon after the main release. There are lots of pieces of content that have been released over the years with small glitches or issues that would have benefitted from a quick update. Hope this is a new trend.

    Unfortunately the flickering issues were not on the list of fixes.

    Lastly, and I didn't see this in the original thread, but is there a reason the big, white, landmark "Mt. Panorama" sign on the side of the hill was not included (it's in the PCars original, but is conspicuous by its absence even if it were not)?

    I will trade the big sign Marc for a Historic version. :)

    I dunno nothing since GPL ever gave me the same buzz 60s Bathurst, but I know rF2 Historic would/ will.

    Over the last hump most drivers where lifting to decompress for good braking.

    The brave ones kept the pedal to the metal got the car launched all 4 wheels different heights then tried to hit the deck, get it under control and start your braking.

    That is exactly how ( I know you won't believe me lol ) the GPL Eagle reacted there.

    Honestly it was/is the most immersive corner in a sim for mine, at least in GPL.

    In GTL/GTR2/rF versions it was fairly dull to say the least, I don't know why.

    I can't see it being anything less spectacular in this with F1 Eve , BT20 .........or Howston G6 at full tilt........... Oh my that is a scary thought. :)

    Slightly airborne @180 over the hump you see in background.

    I expect it's a trading name / trademark, or whatever the situation is. A licensing issue. I think it might be the actual name of the circuit, rather than the name of the geological feature. It might be both, but the lawyers would be all over it. It might even be a copyrighted artwork... ?

    Mount Panorama would require licensing of the name, Bathurst is the place.

    So why is it in the PCars track that is not called Mt. Panorama?

    Been out of their loop since the ides of May, can't speak to it. Someone with WMD forum access could answer.

    It will have to be down to licencing. Just because Pcars has a licence for the track doesn't mean the licence will follow even if they collaborate with ISI.

    If there was ever to be another patch or future upgrade to this track, if possible could you add more Grid/Garage Spots please? Thanks

    I believe it has to do with the game not being able to separate Start and Finish lines, seem to remember the same conversation before somewhere. Could be wrong however so not 100% sure.

    There isn't a 'start line' as such, just a finish line. The grid can be set up where it is and still have the finish line farther back. Of course that should have been done first. Maybe a future update could also fix the terrible trackside cameras.

    The finish line and the xfinish.gmt are in the right place and have been since v1.0

    Ouch!

    terrible? they look fine to me.


    of course you're right my apologies, I wrongly presumed Jim Beam was correct and didn't check it myself (went from memory). lesson learnt :)
