Putnam Park for rFactor 2 0.2 – Released

Following a version for Game Stock Car, Alex Sawczuk has released a first rFactor 2 version of his Putnam Park track that was originally created for rFactor.

Being a rather early release for the new simulation, the track comes with a bunch of limitations that are listed alongside the features below:

* Includes Main Layout Only
* Includes Dynamic Wet Weather Reflections, but not all objects have correct reflection plane
* Real Road Fully Setup
* Includes Custom HDR Profiles
* Includes Interesting Default Weather (i.e. it rains and then stops!)
* Known Error with Trees, for some reason some are very dark, seems to be Tools export error.
* No Track Marshalls yet, awaiting ISI to release their files
* Track Component only – to race online requires a series with it added
* Shadows aren’t very good – Engine Issue on the whole I think though.

        I’m fairly sure that you can select any of the download links on that page to get the same file… At least some of those sites I’ve downloaded from before, and I’ve never paid.

      hotfile works. u can thank the usa that the others dont work.

  • Guilherme Cramer

    Some 3D grass here and there and perhaps a few irregularities on the terrain would add a lot of substance to the bland looking, almost ISI-default like track surroundings. That said, Putnam was one of the first tracks I got for rF1 so I suspect it will be improved in those areas before full release.

      And the delays make for impatient readers, who start trolling on old posts just to keep busy… VirtualR is not as dynamic as it used to be 🙁

    “Track Component only – to race online requires a series with it added”

    “Track only appears under All Cars and Tracks Series in Single Player”

    Does this mean that you can only race any car on any track in All Cars and Tracks? This could be annoying, as in rF1 some mods didn’t work in All Cars and Tracks…

    Looking good BTW!

  • Terry Welch

    Yep – Hotfile is the only sharing site in the list that actually allows downloading.  The rest are probably running scared right now …

    Mediafire on my site still works. 

    • http://www.facebook.com/laurent.cortier Laurent Cortier

      Thank you for sharing your great work, Alex !

      Would a torrent be impossible to imagine in order to share tracks and mods ? pCARS does it, and it works really well… It can’t be worse than those file sharing site that make you click 5 times and lose 2 minutes just for a 50MB file that they don’t own and would like to charge you for… I hated MU, and still does all the rest of the hyenas.

    And the mod updates begin. Still lame imo that you can’t autodownload mods & tracks
    This way of doing it already annoys me again

      And the complaints keeps coming in from people who doesn’t really have to complain, there is nothing negative about this release.

      Only good comes from those who create -sometimes- one big exception being my friend Hitler….

    Thanks Alex for this track. 🙂

    I placed the .rfcmp track file in Packages, but it doesn’t show up in manage mod  ?

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Justin-Schmidt/100001406158677 Justin Schmidt

      the readme provides the answer

      To install place the mod in rFactor2Packages folder. Run Launch rFactor, and then choose Manage Mods.
