    If we're lucky isi will ask reiza to finish rf2 for them so we get the most out of that engine :)

    Maybe Reiza will implement some finished rF2 features into Game stock car. :)

    Like the dynamic road conditions. That's a pretty cool feature. :cool:

    This looks like a glimpse into the future. That's a lot of great potential content.

    Reiza has mentioned this feature and hope to implement it down the road. Iam curious as to what deals were made by the 2 companies as last reiza posted a video showing wing flex tire wear and flat spotting along with a few other new features which they said would only make it into the game through crowd funding, but are now coming to us as a free update. Now isi releases a collaboration track preview.
    Don't get me wrong Iam not trying to bash rf2, isi has developed aN excellent engine with tons of potential I am just not a fan of isi game development, lack of licenses and the way they handle things in general.
    Personally I think the 2 could gain alot from one another and could easily create the perfect simulation :)

    Currently no one else except ISI has access to the "new" rF2 engine. Maybe that will be a start of Reiza getting access to the engine, that would be really great.

    @David Slute

    ISI is a software developer: So basically it's a game engine developer. I think there main focus is not on the content and a shiny User Interface. But you need content and a UI to test your game engine

    For the ISI history click here
    As you can see at the bottom we are at isimotor 2.5. That motor is still in development with rF2. Like rF1 was for isimotor2.

    So i'm really curious what Reiza will do when they get there hands on the isimotor2.5 in a few years. Or will they slowly implement it bit by bit.

    Just some "gossip": :barefoot:
    ISI is working on a new UI with implementation of some kind of flash player.
    ISI is going to make ISI content more easy and user friendly to install: Something like: open rF2 lite: Click, click, skip, click, skip... Click OK, coffee, ... Bingo and go racing.

    What would be really ground breaking is if the two merged,with all Reiza content joining rf2.

    Prefer if they stayed separate. Collaborate for sure. But each continue to do their own thing.

    Mr. Eldren is probably right on. ISI has a history of developing and licensing it's a solid business model. Partnerships are not feasible but collaborations and licensing are.

    The track looks amazing, such detail.
    The race I want to do first of all is full GP distance in the ASR Classic 1992 Open wheelers#.
    The #illiams howling
    The #cLaren screaming
    The #inardis fighting
    The turbo #igiers doing whatever verb they do.

    Bathurst and V8s
    Brazil and 92 #1
    Yeah baby.

    @Gijs van Elderen
    get that club racing diary out and pencil this in.

    #NB we don't use the F word

    What's with the # before some of your words? Just curious. :whistling: It does not read properly. Is there something wrong with your keyboard?

    There was a great scatch build F1 mod with all the F1 cars from 1992. The cars were awesome to drive and the sounds were authentic with each car. But F1 authorities claimed copyrights on the team names used and the name F1. Which David now refer to as #1.

    Well there was a big Kerfuffle and around the Sim Racing Modding world "The Establishment" of the pinnacle of motor sport have started sending threatening letters to modders and communities that host mods and leagues.
    They are strictly enforcing their "elements " including the name of the series and various other things.
    I did some research on their ownership of various "elements"
    You cant use the F word followed by the first number.

    They use internet search engines to find transgressors and threaten them.
    So in short modders have to call their mods Open Wheel Racing or whatever.
    Races cant include mods called by "registered elements."
    thats where the "#" comes in.

    I see thanks. Confusing but I understand. I find it hard to believe the comment:

    Seen what? What do they do exactly?

    How come there are many, many F1 mods covering all seasons still available for GTR2, GP4 etc?
