    Soon is just a relative thing on the scale of S3S... S3S "soon" can mean days, or weeks, even months, and I guess sometimes even years... ;):p

    Looks great, and the livery looks fantastic as well! I like driving the R8 from time to time, but the suspension is just a little too much spongy in most cases for me to be completely comfortable with it.

    The GT3 field is filling out quite nicely with all the new gen cars. A storm is coming...;):whistling:

    That is great news. If we get this baby before july then this would be impressive. expecting October or later but they said "very soon" and not "soon" :roflmao: so i could be wrong.
    Patches and new content left and right so far.
    What i am missing is Monaco/monte carlo track with all layouts (Formula 2 and 1) and i will shut up :D

    I really love this sim, but the waiting times from the announcement, until its realization, are very frustrating

    Holy ****, I completely forgot about the 235i! Just checked the S3 forums and I see it was announced on February 18th 2016. :confused:

    Literally the ultimate RWD Cup car, must have! :notworthy:

    I'm waiting on the Callaway C7. It might even get me out of the P4/5!

    Yes please! I'll take one and while you're at it is there any chance of an actual Porsche or Ferrari? Seems that the other developers got the jump on R3E there as well as with the Huracan.

    You should do the trick with changing moods, realistic mood is great for my taste.
    If you dont know how, i can explain how you do that. ;)

    You know what, I never really noticed, but you're kinda right. While the image is properly whitebalanced to 6500K, it could use a bit warmer tint to make it a bit less sterile.

    I think I'll try to play with SweetFX or Reshade or whatever when I have a bit of time. Should be quite easy to change the white balance a bit.

    I have a Dell U2713H monitor which I hardware calibrate. On my monitor the colors are actually very natural when I'm in my cal2 setting which is my sRGB calibrated setting.

    I think the blueness appereance is exagerated by the nature of uncalibrated monitors. They have most of the time a bad color temperature and are blueish by nature. Even the mildly factory calibrated sRGB ones.

    The colors are very neutral with white balance at 6500K. The thing is, sunlight is usually warmer than 6500K. I usually white balance my photos taken on a sunny day at around 5700-6000K as "perfect" 6500K just doesn't give that sunny day feeling, it feels a bit too cold and sterile to most people. So adding a bit of warmth to the game to slightly accentuate the sunny day feeling would kinda make sense.

    And yes, I have my monitors calibrated.

    Also, these days, even cheap monitors often have fairly good baseline settings out of the box. Well, except for contrast and brightness. But as far as white balance and colors are concerned, it's much better than it used to be.
