    Yesterday i was curious how the game looks on medium detail level (still good) and i noticed a very big difference with the high detail level setttings:

    - there are no brakemarks on the tarmac in medium detail (at least not good visable)

    Normally i use them to know where i should start braking before the corner. How do you guys know where to brake when you play it on medium?

    there are other marks to start braking, like the side marks which show the distance to a corner...
    I think each driver has his own mark to brake, which can be trees, signs, skidmarks, ...

    yepp, but definetely the road dark signs helps a lot. I feel it, when i started to play with race i had to play it on minimum graphic setting, and i did not had any dark tyre marks in the braking zone. I practised like that, did not even know that i miss them. Then i upgraded my PC, could turn on higher setting, and with the marks on the road was immediately easier to find the right point to brake.

    Now of cours it is alos a disadvantage, since i got used to it too much, and when the session is at that time, when there are tree shadows on the road, i usually miss my braking point for the first coupple of laps... lol (like Istanbul first left hand corner, it happens there usually, that tree shadows covering the track)

    I orientate on the tiremarks.
    And I guess I will not try to experience how I would do without :)

    I find the cockpit view so dark I need to pick other objects outside the track as braking guides. The dark parts are visible but they're so hard to notice when the action is on its peak, especially when overtaking.

    I use whatever detail I can find... like an orange tyre, a line on the road, the distance signs, trees...

    I play on medium detail and it will be a while before I can upgrade my computer so I make do with what I got.
