    I like how they upgrade all their old tracks.
    Time to fire up rfactor 2 again and do some decent offline racing.

    The USF2000 in the bottom corner of the picture looks very promising! Low speed open wheel cars provide great racing!

    It was announced a few years ago with the DW12, I think they were planning on doing the Mazda Road to Indy vehicle list USF2000, Star Mazda and Indy Lights. I could be wrong but i think that's what i remember reading.

    It's not released yet but don't hold your breath... The Super GT Nissan has been teased for almost 2 years now, but i have faith in ISI. Whenever they do release a Car/Track its top quality and its always worth waiting for :)

    If they show it in an official track preview you might think it’ll arrive in the near future. :whistling:

  11. Can anyone do a side-by-side video with original Mores release? The atmosphere and colors seem to have followed the trend of the updated tracks :(.
  12. Im loving this track, I think it's one of the best graphically.
  13. Not really that much obvious difference in anything in the screenshots I took, the only clear difference I can spot is the specular reflections from pit building windows and guardrails.

  14. I agree, Gui. Somewhere between core updates and latest track art, I think it lost some of its visual impact. Either that or I've become a little jaded.

    On the other hand, it's not bad track art... just not as remarkable as I recall from the first experience with it, back in the 32-bit days and it had the highest density of artwork because of small size.
  15. Improved color depth
