  2. 1. depends on when the mod was released and last updated, it varies.
    2. Yes, for most racing except if you're intending Rallye or Monstertrucks.
    3. Last Patched Version is 1.255F from 2007 so no, there's rF2 Beta in the go but without decent mods right now.

    Advice: Get rF1 and see what Series you're interested in.
     
  3. Mainly looking at Formula BMW ?

    Thanks so much! is rf2 lacking realism and series?
     
  4. nah rF2 isn't lacking realism at all but just not gone gold and has quite a lot of bugs still beeing in beta. Series well yeah no major modding team went on it to have something proper out just yet, preparations are there but nothing is certain.
    rF has a lot of formula stuff which if done properly is atop of everything, not sure about formula BMW but there's a lot of variety in it despite. If you come from Race or GTREvo you'll feel quite perplex at first but you'll get used to it.
     
  5. i'm totally new on sims.. Where do i find latest mods or do they come when i download rf1?

    you can find a LOT of mods for rfactor on rfactorcentral.com

    i have rfactor for soe 3 or 4 years, i like it very much, because i can get a mod of almost any car i wan't to drive, and still it is a very good sim, of course you will be better with rfactor 2, but it seems to be with some bugs, for what i have heard, i would like to play rfactor2 but i won't buy it until it comes out, until them i will still play rfactor 1
     
  7. Best bang for your buck at the moment is Game Stock Car 2012 ;)
     
  8. rF1 is well worth it still imo. Until Asseto Corsa is out it is still my "go to" sim.

  9. In my view rFactor 1 will still be worth getting even after the next-gen sims are out. It's got so many great mods and tracks, so you won't get bored with it quickly and it'll work out to great value for money. Plus there's a wealth of information on how to get it working right - it's probably the most well-documented sim in existence at the moment.

    rF1 is still well worth the small financial outlay, as has been said above.
    The beauty of rF1 is that you can still find plenty of mods to download and leagues to join, even here at RD theres mods, tracks and addons etc to be had, just google rFactor and you'll be presented with a plethora of sites to view.
    Good luck :)
