    I hope that I'm able to race off line agains AI, I hate hotlapping and will be a no go for me.

    That part about hotlaps being the main focus, that mean that the actual online racing is completely missing from the release? In that case, SimBins future is over... I doubt even casual gamers are looking for realistic hotlapping competitions instead of driver aid enabled real racing thus enabling the more hardcore gamers to have their own corner in the driver aid disabled racing leagues... With hotlapping only, i will immediately stop producing anything for SImBin and start looking for AC or rF2... And i think all modders will follow suit, we don't have any interest providing hotlap material ruined with driving aids...

    I am much more positive about this than I was previously. I am a huge fan of the RACE series and I think this will be a great successor to it.

    Yes there will be actual racing in the release. We've edited the article above and rephrased it a bit as people don't read what is posted and jump conclusions lol.

    We'll have to see how this works out for community racing like on RaceDepartment with the focus apparently also moving towards hotlaps and leaderboards. Nevertheless, RaceRoom Racing Experienced did breathe the fresh new and up-to-date atmosphere that SimBin needed after the RACE Series and will offer a complete multiplayer online racing environment.

    My gosh, I am sooo pleased i have a high end PC so ill be able to play all of the newest racing games to their full potential.

    In competitive FPS, the best thing to do is turn off some detailing and switch off effects, but in racing titles, i always feel more is better.
    Get it looking and feeling as close to real as possible and the exprience becomes fuller, truer and more absorbing, helping the lap times come down and the smiles go up

    :thumbsup:

    If they don't offer AI racing - then I'll pass on this and focus on AC. While I love the driving dynamics of iRacing, I just don't have the time to invest in practicing in order to be competitive online and hotlapping gets old quickly.

    Otherwise, based on the video - it looks very interesting.

    Thanks for this report. It's unbelievable that you are the only journalists that covers this important title to come. It looks very promising!

    Btw, talking about driving aids, actually I find some steering aids quite realistic because steering in real live IS easy, it just depends how fast you go. So those aids are welcome when they compensate simulation with the real thing. I use one for GTR2, not de apex line of cource.

    Still two question Bram:
    1 - How about adjust the cockpit view. Can you zoom in very deep and is it quite open to modify it?
    2 - Can you look into corner like GTR2.

    First of all I need to repeat what we stated in the article that we really had limited time to test out all the features of the game. We did a couple of races on the free to play track that comes with the game release and a second track that was modeled just like a real road in Sweden (absolute blast btw as Yoer and me have driving that same road course years ago).

    I can only guess about the answers to your question so Ill leave that to a simbin representative to answer. :)
