Would you want a laserscanned version of Nordschleife?

    Someone has to get it though, it might not be around in the future :(
    I hate modded tracks, i´ve been spoilt by iRacing´s wonderful tracks and i´m extremely happy AC went that route as well.

    AC could just buy the laserscanned data from the people who owns the rights to the laserscanning of the track.
    Or just buy the license and drive their van around for a lap if they can´t work with the data.

    Should take a day tops to do and not months like for iRacing.

    Might require closing the track while they toot along in a van. A lot of money.

    I have no idea how expensive such a project would be, but I can go without it if laser scanning the Nordschleife + Nuerburgring would exceed the funding for scanning multiple tracks.

    If they offer Nord+Nurb GP as DLC, I would pay $20...

    ehh... there comes the money argument again... :cautious: - a informed customer should know that Assetto Corsa will have a retail price with future updates being free of charge... fee-based DLC is highly dubious in my opinion.

    Someone asked this o pcars forum, and the cost is about 250.000 euro!!

    so forget about it, stop dreaming, lets face reality and enjoy what AC bring to us.

    250.000 EUR split on 50.000 members equals 5 euros.

    One track that is like 4 tracks combined.

    The most dangerous one in the world. The longest one in the world. The one with the highest elevation changes in the world.
    And we don´t even know if it will be around in the future.

    then we will sit here wondering why nobody created a digital copy of it.

    lol ... Nordschleife won't be wiped off the world if the track gets closed. And the road surface changes every few months/years anyway. :rolleyes:

    Don´t be so sure, this is how Oran Park looked, and now it doesn´t even exist. Thankfully, iRacing managed to create a digital carbon copy of it before it was destroyed. I think we should apply the same type of thinking for Nords as well because Germany is not run by Motorsport enthusiasts, they are run by politicians with other goals.

    Germany is well known for not having enough space for new housing developments :)

    And Nordschleife is well known for it's very compact shape on a small area, very susceptible to selling and demolishing.

    No my friend, the problem is when the DLC is clearly aimed at profit maximization vs profit...we all must make a living and that includes indie game dev.
    Time constraints is a valid reason why DLC is viable, especially with a small game dev.

    They have already confirmed that DLC packages might come that can cost money as well.

    I would have no problem with that.
