I had no idea it was a different engine. How does it play? Is it only race cars, or can we import cars from AC to ACC? I really like AC... damn.

The only outstanding about ACC is their marketing-blabla and the motion-dynamics in this game are IMO subpar with a severe lack of what I call 'Newton law's a physics'-simulation. These cars just have no proper weight in ACC and it's all about doing strange setups to pivot the cars faster around the corners. Certainly no sim is anywhere perfect, but ACC is just totally off for me and overrated af.
One man's "off" is a perfectly aged cheese/wine/meat for another.

As for overrated, well all sims are overrated as far as a certain sections of the community are concerned - I consider rF2 overrated, and a bit off, but I ain't going to complain about it, apart from the fact the 90% of the time it's been running it's been loading.

I enjoy ACC, really I do. I don't enjoy rF2, but I'm not going to tell anybody else not to enjoy it.

If you have never been to the Niurburgring, Bathurst, Daytona, Silverstone, or any other track, laser scanning won't make your experience any better. You don't know sh!t to begin with. As long as you get some FFB to use as a driving aid, you will just drive the circuit as it is. You have no idea what the experience should be.
Until you drive the laser scanned version, because of accurate data being used to create the most real world construct for the user to experience. Plus you have the satisfaction of knowing its as close to real world as current technology can get us, rather then the product of poor data and guesswork.

Laser scanned tracks definitely makes my experience better, on multiple levels, and its become the expected standard for good reason. High quality representation in a simulation is one of the goals these games are built upon after al.

Odd that you think you are in a position to tell people what aspect of the experience they will enjoy, or that there is even a faction pushing for lower quality tracks.

whats next? Tire models too detailed?

after all, not having driven that car, on that track, with those tires, in those conditions, we have no idea how they would act. Detailed tire physics wont make your experience any better, you don't know **** to begin with, You have no idea what the experience should be. (oh wait, there's that straw man again)

No one thinks a tree out of place will have a negative effect on lap times
About that; Road Atlanta turn 11 is blind from the track crest beneath the drive over bridge;
at that point, I positioned the car based on a gap in trees across the valley...

Accurately represented laser scanned version of the circuit brings it closer to the reality same as closely matching physical and visual model of the car to its real counterpart. Isn't that what "simulation" is all about?
Why it matters if I never drive on Bathurst or race real GT3 car?
Some arguments here are just :O_o:.

Exactly, if I could I would upvote this comment several times over. Seriously, why the negativity, it just hurts simracing in the long run.

I own almost any game available, some I play more, some less and some not at all after some testing. Do I have to diss every game I don't like? Certainly not, it's a personal choice, I choose the games that fit my needs, and I'm well aware others have different ideas what the best game has to deliver, and that's fine.

If a game fails in the end, which might cater to a niche in the niche simracing because of to much negativity of some "fans", the only thing we accomplish is to have fewer games to choose from in the future.

If you know that simulator aren't perfect. You will read critic it is overrated? That sentence comes from something simracers have done. :)

That term is not created out of nothing.
