The DLC's don't need to be bought as a bundle and up front, also the DLC's will be rolling out through 2021, more than enough time to save up or whatever, buying small bits as you go.

On March 31, it wont be $70. Its $49. And 40% off of that.
That's $29.99 not $70.00

And its not more expensive than ACC, acc is $39.00
You are mixing up their Canadian dollar pricing, with your US dollar pricing

One thing: will triple-screen (including possibility to angle side-screens) be supported by the time it goes EA? Is it possible already maybe? I recall reading something about editing an xml file.
I don't own the beta myself but PCars2 had superb triple screen support so I don't see Reiza removing this for AMS2.

Doesn't matter thats why I didnt convert it, its still cheaper.
He said it was $70 CAD, its not. It's 40% off of that, it's $42 CAD.
He also said ACC is cheaper, which its not. ACC is $56 CAD

But apparently, $42CAD is make or break for him. But before it was
"the full game with 2 DLC's is $140 CAD" That's crazy price, The base is still and expensive game at $70 compare to the alternatives. At 40% off is still more than ACC at full price.
You can save the $100 because the DLC wont be rolling out in the first purchase.

Price is crazy. I know it will be great, but price is too much for me personally. Shame, I hope you guys enjoy it and will be watching all the YouTube videos.
This is the same price than pcars2 on preorder. Yes, quiet expensive, but considering you'll get a lot of content, full features, and should enjoy the game more than 15 hours (like a regular 60$ or € game), and that you have invested at least 200$/€ for your wheel and pedals because you're a racing simer, it's not that expensive.

For a casual racer with a gamepad, yes it is expensive, but you are not exactly the target of this sim.

I'm sorry, but that's a really poor attitude to have. Does freedom of speech not exist in your country? Are all minority opinions and those you don't personally like just "nonsense"? Do you seriously believe RD or any other community should silence those opinions? (Which would be blatant censorship.)

What really is a shame is the growing number of people using internet forums that are incapable of disagreeing without belittling each other over their differences. If someone posts something you don't like, so what? If you have something worthwhile to say in response, say it. If not then just ignore it and get on with your day. Like it or not, we all have an equal right to express our views on RD, whether they're popular or not.
"freedom" of speech is a responsibility, there are a lot of people on the internet who abuse that.

The shame is allowing a certain type of person a voice when they are clearly wrong. And it's almost always the same names over and over again.

And this has nothing to do with how popular a view is or not, this is all about a subsection of RD that is actively hostile towards anything SMS related. We all know who these people are.

I'm here reading about AMS2 because I want to know how the game is, I don't want the "wah wah, pcars, wah wah madness engine is ****" nonsense.

THE single worst thing about the sim "community" is the pettiness regarding "my sim is better than yours" and I truly feel the responsibility is on the Mods and Admins to control things much better in that regards.

But of course this is just my opinion, but it's an opinion which desires a more pleasant community, less divided.

edit, self removed confrontational part...sorry I'm stressed, shouldn't have posted it though. Also I'm done on the subject.

The original objective was to release a 'complete' game on the 31st of March. If this is now not the case and a game will still be release albeit in an incomplete state and discounted rate then why wait until the 31st. Given the isolation state of many people, why not just release it now.

A healthy principle is that all "types of persons" should be allowed a voice. If they're factually wrong you can correct them. If you think they are wrong then you can counter with your own opinion.

If someone goes out of their way to present fake info and behave like douchebags I'm sure mods will ban them.

(emphasis mine)

I have it on good authority that they will in fact do so, but only if users report the posts in question.

R u sure the scale is right in the main photo above? The red car seems huge compared to the blue one.
a bit of both. Blue car is prototype that's made of F3 car, and metalmoro prototype is much bigger.
But also the FOV on the shot is very low, and long zoomed low-fov shots always give impression that further object is bigger.

Triples fully supported already and work perfectly
Not in my case. Lateral views are not good. It seems that it doesn't respect the values I put regarding the angles. Tried from 45 to 60 degrees and it's the same.
Did you do anything special? I tied both in-game settings and the .xml in my documents folder

Even if that’s someone’s genuine opinion? How do you know that’s not what they really believe? Should we also ban everyone who says that AMS 2 is great because they might be wrong? Just because it clashes with your opinion, that doesn’t automatically make it wrong. PCars has had a lot of negative press since it was released so maybe potential AMS 2 customers (or beta users) are right to be concerned. People have opinions (even if they express them forcefully) - that’s life!

Every body's opinion should be welcome ( obvious troll are usually very well handle by moderators).
One thing to keep in mind when reading others opinion is that the might play the same game but they might play it differently. On top of obvious game pad on a couch watching a 55 inch TV from across the room vs. a full motion rig with DD using VR or the offline vs online, there is a myriad of different aspect of the simulation that are more or less important to us that other do not care about.
Unfortunately, we do not and maybe cannot, explain in details how we play the game and what are the main important factors for us and what is not as important, so all opinion are to be taken with a grain of salt and for everything else their is always the ignore list, if you notice that a particular poster interest are really not aligned to yours.
As for me , one of my pet peeve is anybody saying a car or even worst a game drives exactly like the real thing, I have a fairly elaborate set up and nothing ever is even close to drive like the real thing. Some is better simulated in a certain way, yes, but like the real thing, hell no. So for me, if some one write that is a final sentence to the purgatory ( ignored list) because we obviously are not playing the same game.
See, everyone is different. :D

The problem is not with people that think the game is bad. the problem is with people that come to the forum, speak from a position of authority without having even played the beta and say things like "It is impossible to change the AI without rewritting the entirety of the code in the Madness Engine" or "Reiza have no access to the source code they are just scripting" or "You can tell this game behaves just like PCARS 2 from this photo alone". That is the kind of thing that derails a thread, adds nothing to it and is essentially noise (and some of the stuff said is basically just slandering Reiza that they cannot do their work or they are just bad at it because reasons). That I have an issue with and I don't know if it should be tolerated. I mean, we don't need balance in every debate over every issue. If someone says that Corona virus is spread through the 5G network, should we give them a platform so he can present his point against a doctor who is warning people to stay home?

Look, we ALL know constructive criticism is fine, put forward in a mature way to move things forward. This is NOT the issue.

It's when these people express their opinions as facts, the language they use etc is 99% of the time clear. When you have a respected dev come on here and say someones "opinion" wasn't right then that tells me some peoples "opinions" are shoddy to say the least. And if my "opinion" aligns with the Dev then I;m more than happy with that.....These are DAMN hard working people and I am amazed Renato shows as much restraint as he does here....I know I wouldn't in his shoes.

PCars had a lot of positive press too. It swings both ways.

It's perfectly fine to have an "opinion" after all there's that saying they are like buttholes, everyone has one and everyone thinks others stink more than theirs.

But it's the "even if they express them forcefully" bit...now THAT'S the problem. Yes it's life and life is full of arrogant, immature, insensitive, impolite dbags. Society tends to shun prats like that.
