Kart Racing in rFactor – Slow-Motion Video
Niels Heusinkveld keeps on releasing very interesting preview videos of his Kart Racing mod for rFactor.
This time, we get to check out some slow-motion footage Niels has made, showing off the physic features of the mod as he explains below:
To show physics in TV cam, you have to drive and record at the same time because replays don’t contain all the physics elements. That means driving in 1/10 slow motion (control+g in rFactor) with a gamepad.
The bouncing seems over the top because of the gamepad and slomo, making me apply incredibly fast steering inputs if it was real time. This causes more sudden kart jacking, weight transfer and the effect of the tires (weight) being moved in relation to the kart chassis causing all sorts of forces on the body.
Still, it shows some cool shots, if only replays had the full physics fidelity I would do a super slomo replay of an actual lap rather than this 1st gear mucking about with a gamepad!
