A new cancer is spreading in our community as several readers have notified me of a couple of websites that have started selling sim racing mods to uninformed users. I won’t link to these sites because I don’t want this problem to spread any further, I think it’s time for a warning message though.
I know that most of the community’s veterans are well aware of this but many users browse for mods via Google and will hopefully read this:
There are absolutely no legit modding teams out there selling their work! In the sim racing community, mods are always available for free – Don’t let anyone scam you!
The mods on these sites are either the same stuff you get completely for free on legit sites or low-quality conversions of cars extracted from other titles like Need for Speed Shift – Needles to say that this is completely illegal.
If you´re looking for mods, there are several legit sites out there where cars and tracks can be downloaded completely for free
None of these sites will ever ask you for money to download material. Don’t shed out hard-earned cash for something that you can get for free on other sites or some dirty conversion someone has thrown together in less than five minutes.
