    It looks like an easy track but it is surprisingly tricky. Mainly the Porsche curves and the Dunlop curve and esses. It is even more tricky in the dark.

    What makes it hard is that you have to run a very low df setup for Mulsanne but then you wish you had that df for Porsche and Dunlop curves. Add a little fatigue late in the race and it is easy to smack the barriers and throw away many hours of racing.

    Though Rf2 Im sure will give more clues, I always found it very hard to not overshoot the two chicanes at Mulsanne straight

    Why so much shine on the track is not very realistic, the mirror effect
    Yes a little but then I think it is too much.
    Otherwise looking forward to driving on the track.

    This is a constructive and non-critical for blaming yourself :)

    What really dissapoints me on that video (and also did on the rF1 version of that track) is that the tarmac behind the white line on the Hunaudières Straigth is driveable/useable and also gets used from the AI (in Video watchable from, min 3.02 - 3.20 before first chicane and from min 3.51 - 3.56 before second chicane). These parts/lines was never used (even 91-96) because there wasn´t proper tarmac and it was ever full of dirt and dust. Would be nice if that would get fixed.

    Beside of that, the video looks really promising.

    What really dissapoints me on that video, is that it hasn't been released yet, it is an awesome work and track, it should have been released as is, and let updates come, common [Virtua_LM], we all cant wait ;)

    Can someone tell me what the secret is to why Sebring is so beautiful? Obviously the lighting is superb, but there is more to it than that, I know but I just don't know enough to understand what it is. One thing for sure is there is very little aliasing problems. Is this just because of the nature so the textures and not much fencing, etc.? I've been focusing on Silverstone for the last two weeks or so and wanted something different and went back to my trusty Sebring and I was just blown away by how beautiful it is by comparison. In full disclosure I may not be as picky as some regarding graphics because I focus on physics but things like aliasing and graphics glitches can really distract me and pull me out of immersion.

    Anyway, I am just curious what it is about Sebring and if it is something that can be shared/taught to others? Mid-OH is fantastic also and Topeka is very good, too. Sebring, however, wow just wow. So is there a secret or is it mostly the nature of the IRL track which lends itself to sim modeling, etc., etc. Sorry It's just so extreme coming from Silverstone back to Sebring.

    Well, if the quality of LeMans is going to be anything like Sebring we are in for a real treat!
