    Bad news for simracing as RSC has decided, after a lot of bad luck, to close their forums. I think I speak for a lot of people here that our simracing careers started there.

    After two years of hardware troubles they have decided to pull the plug.

  2. Sad news :( my first online race i had at RSC's race club
    i realy hope they can sort it out and come back as strong as in the past
     
  3. With all the trouble they have been having, I really don't blame them. It is a real shame though.
     
  4. Perhaps they could link members here. The RSC members will need a fix somehow....in my eyes RD is the perfect fix
     
  5. Keith, that is a good idea... Most useful would be the modding community having a new home...
     
  6. Shame there gone but i think they where warned a while ago this could happen.Would be nice to see there members at RD to make the racing club even bigger.

    That is a real shame,there are a lot of people with a lot of knowledge,hope they will join RD. Maybe,Grand Prix Legends??
     
  8. Such a shame. :(
     
  9. Sad. Last time it went down the guys did a GREAT job to get it up and running again...but it was already dead then imo..

    I came here from RSC and I think others will do the same..

    RSC will be missed.. :(
     
  10. very sad news, there were lots of great posts there that helped a lot of people, would love to see the old threads kept alive somewhere even though they are just locked down and for reference only.
     
  11. Its a shame, it was one of the first proper internet forums for racing sims that I joined after hanging around the newsgroups for years. They seemed to have a lot of trouble finding funding and a reliable host as the site was offline quite often. I think RaceDepartment is a good place for people to come and hang out at.
     
  12. omg what a bad news!
     
  13. I don't think it's "for now". I think it's for good :(

    I don't really go there much, but that forum had loads of help and was the place where most simracers started.

    Sad news :(

    Like Mark said above it`s where most of us started me included, but since they came back online (a year ago ? Icant remember) I had hardly been there, it is a shame but they were offline for such a long time that people moved on and found somewhere else.
     
  15. I agree Mark there was so much information and links for moders and now there gone.
     
  16. Wow, bad bad news :S a very good website of simracing losted... I think like a lot of people here, they need to come to RD for race! :D
     
  17. Has RD considered providing support for some of the games RSC focused on? I'm talking specifically about GPL, which they had a lot of activity in, and GeneRally, the top-down game, which they were just about the only forum for... I participated especially in the latter, and it'd be sad to see that one go, especially because one of the developers had just come back from a years-long break...

    A PM to Bram or one of the Admins could probably have them sorted. :)

    Well, we are opened to do it of course, it's a pity an active community like GeneRally lost contact because of this, I have some teammates in, if somebody is interested, please PM me, we will work it out.

    For the moment we opened this.
     
  20. Sad indeed, but since it shut down I found this place and like it a lot.

    I loved RSC's hardware forum, most of the ideas for my rig was taken from various posts there. I hope this new home for Sim Racing can take the hardware torch that RSC held for so long.
