Such passion, you can stop anywhere and enjoy all the little details.
After reading about the extra VIP stuff I coudn't help thinking that it would be a quick cash grab, but after trying it out I was astonished, how wrong I was, there's just a lot in this.
I got pointed this direction by the VR sim community, played some of the normal version, and recently sent you a little support as thanks for the incredible hard work.
Anyone reading this who may be on the fence: as a Southern Californian who has actually driven on these roads, what has been accomplished here is nothing short of breathtaking and even in the normal version, there are tons of incredible little secrets and side-paths to find. A huge number of real-world locations have been recreated here, and anything from a leisurely drive to a point-to-point sprint are incredible fun, especially in VR if you can manage it.
TL;DR - Wow, A true Masterpiece... accept your own flaws
I first drove on this map about 18 months ago. New to having a wheel and getting into driving in Assetto Corsa with a single decent size monitor and I thought I'd download and play.
I jumped straight into something dumb fast thinking "American roads are so wide and dull, so meh." Drive a few corners, going much too fast, lose concentration, crash and burn. Obviously your fault, map is rubbish. Rinse and repeat for about a week...
Then, with a baby incoming, I move house and can't use my wheel, nowhere to play.
I bought a VR for Christmas and moved again recently, new man cave. Finally I have my wheel set up again and getting back into AC, only now in VR. Downloaded your map again.
Jumped into Shaun Clarke's stellar Ginetta G40 Junior (100bhp whoop whoop) and think I'll go for a drive.
Now I'm in a slow but nice handling car, with all the depth and immersion of VR, with SOL and Ilja's shaders and It's real... I'm on the L.A Canyons, that corner looks sharp, best slow down... focus... concentrate... WOW!
Just spent 20 minutes doing a lap (Never said i was fast) and had to turn off AC to donate and write this. Thank you Phoenix77, thank you... Now I'm going back to L.A... See ya.
Really great mod that adds massively to the game. Genuinely better than a lot of officially released addons for a lot of games, you should be proud. Enjoy your beer/coffee, you've earned it (and I'm excited to see the VIP version!)
Absolutely incredible detail and quality on such a massive scale, hands down one of the best map mods made to any racing game, hats of to everyone who has contributed to this project absolutely stunning !!!
This map is incredible !, and I have been driving for a long time.
But two months ago I sent money for a coffee, but I have not received the VIP version, I do not know if that is normal, but I would like to be able to enjoy those extra kilometers.
Good job, I'm waiting for an answer.
