    A few interesting screenshots have surfaced on the facebook page of Reiza Studios some minutes ago showing a big truck and an openwheeler car.

    Will this be another new modification for rFactor after the successful release of their Formula Armaroli a few months back?

    Judge it yourself from the screenshots below!

    I think Formula Amaroli was intended as a "demo"/publicity generator. My understanding is they are a professional development team. I would guess the work above will be for sale rather than a mod for rFactor.

    As long as the quality is good I have no problem paying for stuff. I hope they have success with it.

    Personally I don't mind if whole rfactor 2 was setup like that. Bye bye crappy mods and bring on the quality content.

    No-one makes you play the crappy mods :p

    I'm not sure how making mods for rF1 and selling them is going to work? Surely someone will simply get the files and upload them somewhere? It must surely be a standalone game. Even that will be quickly converted to rFactor - look at SLF and TC2000.

    When people can earn some money they suddenly get creative, innovative and deliver quality. In the end that is what I am looking for a in sim: top quality. No half cooked mods, and the 10th version of an ancient track that is converted again, but original quality stuff.

    Isn't the new ARCA game also based on rFactor 2?

    Indeed it will be. I'm not 100% sure it's the exact updated GMotor engine that rF2 will use but pretty close.

    And you are right when people earn money they do get 'better'. A classic example of this is Xbox Live vs Playstation Network.

    Passion can be an even bigger motivator than a bit of money to constantly keep improving your skills. And passion can get you somewhere too :) .

    Money isn't a motivator, it just gives you time to get things done :)
