Best mods in class? Opinions please

    Having a bit of an rfactor resurgence lately and really enjoying it. Just looking for some tips on which mods I shouldn't overlook. I like the idea of hunting out the "best in class mods" if possible, not just mods people like, so these are the ones I have now:

    GT1/2: Enduracers
    F1: FSone 09 (must be some other open wheeler classes (cart factor maybe, etc?) that are "must haves"?)
    V8: Really like FVRfactor, but will be trying V8FU today (installing it now, what's you opinion on both? Notice RD use V8FU for league races, etc?)

    Curious about others i should try. Looking for what is considered the best stock car mod. Grabbed Stockcar Sim Series 2012 today, too, but keep seeing others around and don't want to install all of them (saw VHR and a few others). What is the best there?

    And then any other mods I shouldn't miss? I'd rather people not throw out mentions to just good mods (like BMW E90, Meganes, etc, I have tried lots of them), really looking for the best in class today :)

    P.s. also have World touring masters, which I like a lot.

  9. ;)
     
  10. The historix mod says I need to put my GT Legends install in my computer, but I haven't got GT Legends. Is there any way I can still install the mod?
     
  11. Crack, put we can't help you from there :p

    GT Legends is <5$ though nowadays :)

    Unfortunately no time for me to race. I work Mon, Tues, Wed nights so i spend the morning/early afternoons with gf and her little girl. Then Fri, Sat, Sun i have the little one morning till afternoon because gf goes to work.
     
  15. +1 on the historics mod. (Don't forget to do the edits shown in the Manual to make the most of the FFB)
    +1 on buying GT Legends so you can install it.
    - 1 on cracking a £5 game rather than giving SIMBIN support.

    Tracks - Tagara Florio - try it with the historics mod and I guarantee you'll immediately loose 3 to 6 hours trying to just finish a couple of laps....
     
  16. 1937GP, LOVE IT !
     
  17. I have a problem with that mod as it says it can't load textures for the cars, so rFactor crashes.
     
  18. Take out the Alfa folder until the fix comes.

    For me it works, I think it's only for Win XP users...
     
  19. I play only F1 mods on rF. My personal favorite mods are:
    2005 CTDP
    2006 CTDP
    2007 MMG
    2008 FSOne
    2009 FSOne
    2010 LMT*
    2011 RFT*

    *Not sure if the mod is 100% Legal.
