    Thank you.
    Can I change my name for this topic only? Or it is about the race itself? In race I will use my real name.

    @T_rac3 It's real names in-game and (if applicable) on TeamSpeak only. Nicknames on forum are fine (wouldn't be much point to having them otherwise;)) Your settings are fine as-is. Nice to see you join us again :)

    Oh, and sign me up please!

    Nice vid Peter. Looks like you have trees "popping up" in the near field. Did you know about @Quas fix for that?

    I was slightly annoyed by some 3D objects popping up slightly later on a few tracks and came across this useful tweak, it won't create any mismatches and has only upsides if you're not running an ancient PC:

    To significantly increase draw distance of 3D objects on all tracks you should use a higher "LODMultiplier" value in the "HISTORICFIAGT.cam" file.

    Go to "GameData\Vehicles\HISTORIC GT\HISTORICAL FIA GT", open the .cam file (there's only one).

    The default setting is: LODMultiplier=(1.00000)
    I changed it to: LODMultiplier=(10.00000)

    Be sure to change the multiplier for the appropriate view you are using, changing multipliers for hood view will have no effect in cockpit.

    This is easily done in a few seconds, fixed all 3D pop ups on all tracks for me, didn't have a noticable impact on fps and causes no mismatches online. If your pc struggles to run rFactor at decent framerates in the first place, you might want to skip this or use a lower value than i did though.

    I'm running mine at 50.00000. Hope this helps. :thumbsup:

    Jarek uses 10.00000 but I use 50.00000. I think that 50.00000 works even better on my PC but you can try both and see what works best for you if you like. Just saying that this costs nothing to try and is really quick to change and change backif you don't like it. "Hope this helps" was just to explain that I'm only trying to be helpful. :)
