Nice to see the ffb per car setting along with new tire data and global graphic optimization, hopefully it will translate over to vr.

Last time I tried VR in this title it gave me neausea and a headache.

It does. Just had a race vs the ai and the game was 100% smooth in vr (like not a single framedrop smooth), even outperforming AMS2.

If i compare that to how the game performance in vr just a couple of months ago it's almost sorcery.

£7.99 for one track and 2 *slightly* modified cars. Compared to iracing & rf2 this is great, but to me this seems like it could've been free DLC for those of us that have already purchased the first two DLC packs.

Still, i love ACC and purchased it. i just needed to vent!
Free is certainly a bit much to ask. The devs need to make money to produce content. It does not magically appear. But I agree it is significantly more enpensive than what we were used from DLC for AC1 in the past for example.

However, you also need to consider that 30% go to Valve and a big chunk also gets removed for VAT depending on your location, so in the end it's not a lot of money that ends up with Kunos.

You must be smoking something very strong to suggest its as buttery smooth as AMS2! I nearly choked on my Mars bar when I read that.

Isn't that a little like saying i buy all my weekly food from Tesco, so they should let me have todays few groceries for free?
