Introducing Mod of the Month

As a way to thank the wonderful creators of so many awesome mods hosted here on RaceDepartment we are introducing a new initiative called "Mod of the Month".

We love mods. Whod'a thought it, right? Quite simply we want to give back to the modding community in a fun way, enter, Mod of the Month.

We have put together a team of experts from the RD staff to evaluate mods hosted on this website. We will congregate once a month to view the suggestions from the community and we will award a mod the soon to be coveted title of "Mod of the Month".

We will be judging the mods on a number of key factors depending on the type of mod, for example cars will be judged on handling/physics, 3D model, interior etc.

The winner will get a tag on their resource asset picture showing the rest of the community that this mod was selected as MotM, but more importantly we are going to reward the author(s) a $150,00 Amazon voucher. With everything that's happened recently with the Sim Dream controversy this would obviously be contingent on the mod being validated as scratch built or has the explicit permission of the original author.

We will have an internal discussion to choose our inaugural MotM award but If you would like to recommend a mod for evaluation by our team you can drop us a comment on this thread, or reach us on Twitter via @racedepartment using the hashtag #RDMOTM with the link to the mod.

Keep your eyes peeled for the first winner of MotM in the coming days.

I assume the mod needs to have been released during the last month and older mods or updates to earlier released mods do not apply?

A candidate for MotM woud be Sachsenring by Gunnar333 for AC:

I think until we hit a rhythm we will absolutely look at older mods.
 
good idea but I guess this is something what cars like I do will never win just because they are for specific audience... Everyone will download and suggest a track, cars will be always behind I guess...

Ok, because with the large number of great older mods available on RD, new mods may not get a chance to become MotM. Maybe a suggestion is for month one, an older or updated mod is chosen and for month two a newly realeased mod over the past 2 months. And repeat that schedule every 2 months.
 
Will this be limited to RD hosted mods or would the likes of RSS and Pessio paid mods be in the running too?
edit: re-read it, only RD hosted mods, got it ;)

Love the idea! Especially the chosen image header :)
The first mod I vote for then will be the first mod I downloaded for AC back in 2019, @LilSki version of Watkins Glen. Still one of my all time favourite mods
Also, even if they will be overlooked, something like SOL should definitely be in the running, it reinvents the game. Miscellaneous mods require just as much time as effort as certain cars and tracks
 
great idea... this is something that helps a lot for newbies to filter some must have mods when there is something like a "hall of fame" or so to honor them and make them visible easy... It is a shame that some of the most important mods want have that Mod of the Month award than because they came out before this MotM award was there ... stuff like SOL and so on should have that ;-)
