Nordschleife for rFactor 2 – Project Terminated

GMT’s Nürburgring Nordschleife project for rFactor 2 has been stopped at the request of Simbin.

Just yesterday, the German Modding Team posted a first preview video of their Nürburgring Nordschleife project for rFactor 2.

Less than 24 hours later, there’s less stellar news as the team has announced that the project has to be terminated with immediate effect at request of Simbin.

The team’s track was based on Simbin’s Nürburgring Nordschleife for GTR Evolution which the team reworked to fit into rFactor 2. The track was planned to be released with a DVD check for GTR Evolution, ensuring that only owners of Simbin’s original title get to enjoy this track.

Even though this practice was never officially condoned by Simbin, several mods have been released with such a check as this practice was tolerated for a long time.

It seems that in this special case, Simbin’s lax stance on this issue seems to have changed – Hardly a surprise considering what an important track the Nürburgring Nordschleife is for any racing title.
