Want to Plan for a Racing Web Series...

    Ok, guys. I've had to look through my library and I could NOT find any watchable racing movies or tv series.

    The best I could find is the oscar movie Grand Prix... which is very VERY dated (it even has an intermission).

    Days of Thunder sucks
    Driven sucks MORE
    Michel Vailant sucks EVEN MORE

    Racing Tv series? Bah I wish. I'm tired of Hollywood screwing up racing and I wish there would be some quality racing stories out there. So... I want to create a racing web series. Here's my idea, just gauging interest and if you guys are willing to watch my show if I produce it.

    Would any sim racers be willing to help out? Heck, would any sim racers be willing to WATCH the show is a better question. Any thoughts, comments would be greatly appreciated

    I believe if the parties involved both own rFactor AND the Race series then it's ok. Oscar and I both own rFactor and the entire Race series. However, for fear of this thread getting deleted. I have removed the links to the WTCC Ex mod.

    The main reason why it's illegal is because there isn't a client check for the mod. So anybody who gets a hold of the mod will have content that is basically Race without owning Race.

    It's good that there's atleast some interest.

    Doing this would be a lot of trouble but if there's atleast a few of you who are interested then i guess it'll be worth it :)

    I'm thinking of doing ETCC mod instead now as i dont want trouble with the simbin guys. Do you think be using the WTCC Ex mod would be a problem despite all the members participating in it will have both rFactor and all the Race games?

    Haha, Lizardfolk, nice to see you there mate :D

    "Oscar", I assume you're refeering to Oscar Hardwick?

    Dunno if I can help video making wise since I have very little experience with video editing. Commentary wise, well, tried this several times overf the years but I don't feel confident enough with English and I hate my voice anyway. But I might be able to help as a driver maybe. Just call me if you need some.

    Anyway good luck with it if you manage to make it real, would definitely be interrested in watching.

    Actually, think of it more like a tv series rather than a league or event broadcast. There will be fictional characters enacting in a fictional environment with (hopefully) good character development.

    I mean, like Driven... except I hope to be better than Driven since writing wise Driven was absolutely horrible

    Hi Yann, nice to see you here too :) Thanks for offering your help. To be honest, I would appreciate any help I can get (driver and/or voice). I'll contact you on skype :) Also, dont worry about your english. From my experience it's just fine

    Also yeah, this idea have been bouncing around between Oscar Hardwick and I for a long time. I've just managed to get an artist so hopefully something will actually start to come out of this

    As far as I understand it, the mod (even with a DVD check for example) would be illegal withoout Simbin's explicit permission to convert, seen as it is their IP. Just because you own the right to use the game and their cars, does not mean you have the right to modify their content without permission, or port it to another game completely. If it isn't a public release of the mod, then Simbin might be more comfortable with it (the WTM mod is a good example) however I don't see them giving permission for this.

    Thanks, this was the sure answer I was looking for. Looks like I'll have to use another mod

    EDIT: Wait... so EOAA GT and the Historic GT/TC mods have permission from their respective owners? I find this odd since EOAA GT is specifically ripping from GTR2 and GTR Evolution...

    The EOAA GT mod has a CD check, while the WTCC Extremes don't...
