    well done guys 😉 congrats for release! 😀

  • GeraArg

    Look very very nice. 😎 😎 😎

  • F1Racer

    Its a good one. Very nice liveries too. Would have preferred the seat to be closer to the wheel but apart from that I’m really enjoying it. Great work guys.

  • Ragster

    Groovy!! Ty.

  • Tifose

    great work guys!!!

  • stabiz

    F1Racer, the seat thingy can be altered in the .plr I beleive, there is a line there somewhere. I fiddled with it in another mod some thousands of years ago. (thus the vague “help” 😀 )

  • Montoya

    Seat position can even be changed in game, you just have to assign keys/buttons to it in the control settings.

  • stabiz

    Yeah, but you cant really get that close ingame. I was wrong, its not the .plr, but the cockpit.ini.

  • F1Racer

    you mean moving it beyond what it already possible with the in-game keys ? I push the seat forward and its still a bit to far for my liking.
    Still looks like Im 6ft7 🙂
    So nice to have some great looking Ferrari’s in rF.

  • stabiz

    Yup, alter some values there, I think they are self explaining when you find the right line. I messed it up the first time I did it, so make a backup before altering, hehe.

  • erale

    Maybe you should adjust your fov. With a high value you’re of course too far away from the wheel.

  • F1Racer

    I`ll have a look in the config files.
    Dont really want to start adjusting FOV settings if I can help it.
    Thx guys

  • erale

    Just take a FOV of 40-50. That’s a much more realistic view and you won’t be that far away from the steering wheel.

  • stabiz

    But you wont see the mirrors that way.

  • DeDios

    personally i use FOV at 50…for to see mirrors i use visual keys..;)

  • Raikku

    I changed viewpoint front/back from default 0.15 to 0.0 and now i can get to proper distance from wheel.

    Otherwise great mod, i just hope that someone could convert this to GTR2 too. These F430’s are so much better than other versions.

  • tarnakman

    i wanted to try the mod for a while before making an accurate comment.
    Apex Modding; you owned again! thank you so much for this fantastic mod. i was a fan of the 288gto challenge and this one feels just as good in his own way.. the braking is especially amazingly well done.. im out of words, thanks!!!
    ps: for those who wants to improve the distance of the wheel open the cockpitinfo.ini and change the eyepoint line to something like this: Eyepoint=(0.07, 0.585, 0.02)

    dont miss out this fantastic mod
