Targa Florio for rFactor – Lots of New Previews

6e66o has released a new batch of preview shots of the Targa Florio conversion project, showing us two edited and plenty of unedited shots of the legendary Italian track in rFactor.

The Porsche 904 featured in the shots has been made by HistorX, creators of the Historic GT & Touring Car mod for rFactor, who have recently announced a co-operation with the Targa Florio conversion team. A result of this partnership will be an upcoming set of Targa-specific cars made by HistorX, more info on their partnership can be found here.

Originally created for Grand Prix Legends, kuato, Bud Lucas, Deadeyeski, [dd]Baule, TICTOC, 6e66o, Philrob, Motorfx & seventies are working on bringin the legendary Italian track to rFactor. To bring it up to rFactor standards, the track has been equipped with new textures, shaders, a new AIW supporting large fields and much more.

Located on the Italian Island of Sicily, the 72 kilometer track is one of the most epic motorsport race tracks ever used. As safety concerns became an influence in international motorsports, the Targa Florio sports car race lost its world championship status and is still run as an Italian rallye today.

    mike84… it should be fun just to cruise in the monster of a track.

    You can bet that! It’s an amazing experience to drive there, even in the smaller cars, no doubt. And so much work is being done by these guys that i wouldn’t consider it just a ‘straight conversion’ of the GPL Targa. It’s going to look & feel even better, that’s for sure!

    Regards

    hahaha! has that white goat got a smile cause of the size of his ballz? lol jk! track looks great, looking forward to having a drive on such a long track….

  • paupau

    72 kilometers, thrills me every time I think about it

  • fpol

    This looks very promising and i hope they take their time and get it as high qual as possible. Should be insane fun with HistorX, but man it’s too bad they’re not (also) doing this for GTR2 to get to drive it in the PnG stuff.

    With the outstanding accuracy of iRacing for modern tracks, it would really be good if modders picked up the ball and did more work on period specific stuff as this track represents, and the HistorX and PnG mods, along with stuff like GP79, etc.

    GTR2 & GTL versions will also be released.

    Where the edit button when you need it, :sd:

    this will play great with the GPL game conversion for rFactor!

  • carbonfibre

    Its content like this that makes rFactor the no.1 sim to be driving, and it’s the people who contribute to the rFactor modding scene that make it the no.1 community to be in. :sd:

  • speedfreak968

    Looks really great and I’m sure it will feel great as well judging by the names that stands behind this work… I’m really really looking forward to this… Thank you guys!!!!!!

  • Gammatzu

    wow, 72 km !! :eek:

    Good project

  • http://simscreens.blogspot.com 6e66o

    If you haven´t yet, make sure to try the track in GPL.

    IMO it´s the most addictive Track to drive ever! :happy:

  • N0body Of The Goat

    The goats are very lifelike, impressive :wink:

    Its content like this that makes GPL such a great sim. rFactor modders would never dream of making the Targa from scratch. Lets just be thankful that GPL modders allow it to be converted to other platforms, just one of which is rFactor.

    Nevertheless my thanks also go to the team converting this for rF and Simbin platforms. Its looking good.

    That’s not a particularly fair comment. To create tracks to the highest standard in rFactor requires much more knowledge than that for GPL and they are much more complex, requiring knowing how to use much more complicated software.

    Yes it’s true but there are valid reasons why generally we just see smaller circuits.

    Thanks again for the update 6e66o!

    Good point Alex. I think it’s not possible to compare the modding communitys of those games. I think both have there goldies, like The Monaco-Rockz updates in GPL or the Nordschleife-Updates in rFactor (sure based on an GPL track :cool: )

    Alex wish you all the best with Reiza!

    Great screens. Can’t wait! :grin:

  • ForzaBarca88

    Photo-realistic goats ftw!
