    V8Factor Unleashed (V8FU)
    Base Install (with Community Edition cars)
    Australian V8 Supercars MOD for rFactor
    by
    Team ORSM (OCEANIA RACE SIM MODDERS)
    http://www.teamorsm.com

    Version BETA v0.9 - March 14 2011

    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    Installation:
    Follow the instructions in the Installer. Please make sure you select the correct path to your rFactor installation. Files will be automatically installed.

    This base Install includes the Community Edition cars. There are no other season included. Seasons can be downloaded separately.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    Known Issues:

    * Old 2006 mod cockpits with minor alterations are being used. New cockpits are underway but not yet complete.
    * The Ford Falcon FG does not yet have lower level detail models (LODs). May be addressed in a future patch.
    * The Ford Falcon BF does not yet have its lowest level detail model (LOD). May be addressed in a future patch.
    * The cars look quite bad under lights at night. May be addressed in a future patch.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    Special Features:

    UPGRADES: We have utilised rFactor's upgrades system to allow for more customisation options. You can select different levels of cockpit detail for example, change wheels, change exhaust position, and even change steering wheel types and readout displays. Make sure you take a look at the upgrades system and try some of the changes. NOTE: These upgrades are visual only and have no performance differences. Exhaust positions should be taken into account if painting new skins.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    Suggested Game Settings:
    -----------------------
    If you use a wheel as your controller you will get much better feel and response in driving the cars by setting "Speed Sensitive Steering" to zero (move the slider all the way to the left).

    Also VERY IMPORTANT is the Controller.ini setting called "Steer Ratio Speed". This acts as a secondary kind of Speed Sensitive Steering and increases your steering lock to help get your car out of the garage and into the pitlane at slow speeds. However by default rFactor sets this to 20 metres per second which equates to 72Km/H. That means in slow hairpins or while trying to recover while going off track you may have your steering lock significantly increased without realising it. We suggest setting this parameter to zero, or 10 at the most (36km/h).

    eg. Steer Ratio Speed="0.00000"

    We suggest you take a little time to 'tweak' all your controller settings to make sure you are getting the most responsive input for your particular controller.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    Suggested Player file settings:
    ------------------------------
    Your Player file is called "[yourplayername].PLR" located in rFactor/UserData/[yourplayername] and can be opened in Notepad. NOTE: Editing the PLR file is done at your own risk. We suggest you backup the file by renaming it to [yourplayername].bak before editing.

    - Low Detail UI="0" -> Default is "1". Increase the visual quality of the User Interface (UI) by making this value "0".

    - Autocalibrate AI Mode="0" -> Default is "0". When this feature is switched on (by changing it to "1") rFactor ignores the talent files, meaning all AI will have the same skills as each other. If you are not creating track learning files make sure its set on "0" for the best AI racing.

    AI Limiter="0.00000" -> Default is "1". The V8Factor AI race better when this parameter is set to zero. Otherwise you occasionally get one or two cars having an extremely slow lap, which tends to cause collisions.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    Recommended RealFeel plugin settings:
    ------------------------------------
    NOTE: Steering rack is now behind the axles and so reelfeel forces are no longer reversed.

    [V8 Supercar]
    MaxForceAtSteeringRack=1500.000000
    SteeringDamper=2500.000000
    FFBMixerRealFeelPercent=100.000000
    SmoothingLevel=1

    These are subject to personal taste as well as the type of wheel you use.
