    Hey there guys!

    @Bram Hengeveld mentioned in another topic, that with Assetto Corsa and Steam collab. there might be a lot of newcomers to the Simracing scene and the content of educational movies is lacking in that term, or at least not specified to Assetto Corsa. I've been thinking about starting a series of educational movies, walking through the basics of the game and simracing in general through setups and driving techniques.

    My question is, do you think there is a "market" for these videos? How off-putting my Hungarian accent would be in those videos? Is it actually helping if you threw some of these videos onto the hand of unexperienced newcomers?

    It sounds great...but it also depends on how experiencesd the author is. For example, if Morgan morand was giving tips everyone would listen...but if it was me, I wouldn't count my chickens lol

    Videos will be great chance for everyone to learn something new or renew their knowledge about racing lines, racing with others and being faster. If you need any help with making videos you can contact me.

    I'm in the Simracing scene for 11 years now, since the release of Live for Speed and been around in top-teams for years now in that sim. Same goes for drifting. I guess that's enough knowledge to get a few newcomers started :)

    Even if you were only active for 11 hours, if you have useful information to share that help others please do as that is why we have started this forum in the first place.

    Looking forward to it :thumbsup:

    I'd definitely be interested - I've only recently got into SimRacing and although I'm fortunate to have a friend who's been on the scene a few years to show me the ropes, some more instructional videos would definitely not go amiss!

    I think it's a great idea. Maybe you could also cut in some real life footage, on-board stuff, to show how things work in the real world too? Or would that be a copyright minefield? :D

    I've been into it for years but only recently started getting everything together to get serious. More videos and instructions would be great. I think sim racing is one of the best hobbies and would love for more people to become as enthused as us.

    Exactly, every single tutorial video is useful unless shows wrong information etc. The question is what kind of videos you want to show. Once I wanted to create such videos but it's time-consuming and I was alone. If you need help, contact me and we could discuss it.

    Great idea, look forward to seeing these...
    Do you guys follow any routine or pattern when a new game or mod comes out?

    When I get a new sim, I go to an easy looking track (Laguna Seca is my favorite if the game has it) and then run each car at least 3 laps (with AI) & write down lap times & random notes like FUN factor!

    Here are the vids referenced above + 1 more...
