    Wow that looks awesome!  Also one thing that stood out when watching the video from the other day was the power poles, them not all being straight catches your attention, and is authentic, just keeps looking better and better imho!  Can’t wait!! :D

      yep and that after removing some of them I think. Rob is censuring comments like crazy lately!

        Ohh, so that’s why you behave ! :D

  • Borut Verbancic

    Wow what a “bad” pictures of rFactor 2, and over 200 comments. Owners of site must be really happy.

    It’s extremely difficult to tell much of anything from screenshots or even videos.  Fun to speculate, I guess, but the beta will be much more interesting.  Even then, it’s still just a beta.  Issues in the beta could be solved by release.  Who knows.  Very interested in the beta.  It won’t tell exactly what the release will be like, but it will tell us how far ISI has to go.  Should be interesting.

    The level of discussion in this post is a reflection of what this site was allowed to become and how it dragged some simracers down a path where style trumps substance. Shame, really. I, for one, am excited to try rFactor2.

      It is a reflection of the fact that people are tired of getting the same old story “good physic can’t be matched with good graphic”. That could be true years ago, now it isn’t anymore and it’s good that people are becoming more and more exigent with every new title that comes out.

        It’s good that people are whining over and over again instead of doing something for themselves ?
        Man you’re far out too !

      These days Graphics means a lot more than proper physics and gameplay. I like good graphics , but it means nothing if the gameplay is no good.

      Não se preocupe não, camarada…

      This site hasn’t changed, it’s only the comments section. 
      Yes, there are many many many a trolls, but there are also are lots of great posters with tolerance and great mindset.

      Just forget the trolls, the more you give them importance, the more they need to express themselves. It’s a problem of ego, but it’s their problem, not yours… Just walk by and live your life, you’ll feel better ignoring them.

    Has ISI posted a real nice screenies, there would be no controversies and 200+ comments.. clever guys! :D :D

      They could post the sim racing equivalent of the Mona Lisa, and someone would undoubtedly be on here complaining that the backlighting on her face is off by one shade of brown, or something else equally trivial.

  • noro ardanto

    what I see is that we are so used to get either “eye candy graphics + crappy physics” or “crappy graphics + believable physics” at to the point that we are not allowed ourselves to dream about having a simracing game with “eye candy graphics plus awesome physics” ..that’s my dream about rF2, pCARS, GTR3 and Assetto Corsa, Kart Pro etc. etc.

      I want it all, I want it all and I want it now!

  • noro ardanto

    I’m waiting for some kart and off road cars in action screenies.. seems everybody completely forgot about them?!

  • scoldan

    dynamic weather and drying line,is without interest because rain canceled the competition
    visual tire deformation  ,is without interest because not realistic

    it’s a game that is no longer a simulation
    don’t buy this GAME  don’t pay for playing online

    Wow. What an amazing thread. I’ve never had so much fun on VirtualR.

    Trolls, tons of them… (you probably don’t know who you are, but we do) 
    Then the awakened ones (you definitely know who you are)
    Then Ian Bell and Tim Wheatly (I hope they know too ;))
    And of course Montoya, whose head must be quite hot right now with this thread alone :D

        noro master troll :D

        Thanks for proving my point, which you obviously didn’t understand… You’re one of the biggest trolls out here, mate, time to realize that !

        But I think you know already, because since this post, you edited most of your trolling comments. At least you used your brain a little, thanks for participating.

        Just don’t think you’re fooling anybody.

      • noro ardanto

        wow I’m flattered you read all of my comments

    This is rF 1 … nothing more …. gonna be epic fail …

  • Celço Bento

    the biggest difference between rf2 and Gt5/Forza, are the effects of light and the textures of horizon/ sky.
    Mills Sky texture is poor …

    But in terms of phisics i hope it will be much better than these other games …

  • vitor silva

    will love to drive those historic cars !! keep the good work
