I love iracing, but... I hate that the FPS of the sim differ greatly depending on cars & track. Maybe they should let you do different graphics settings depending on cars/tracks like they let you do with the controls on cars :)
(and something similar when you use VR or screens)
Just worried that I'm going to get another track that's going to take a hit on the fps...
 
iRacing is currently offering a deal of 25% off 1 year and 2 year subscriptions for Black Friday (discount ends Dec. 5th). Only works for active subscriptions. So if you're not active, you'd have to renew/activate a month and then renew that subscription with the discount code.

Discount on 2 years renewal and meeting minimum race participation (8 rounds in 2 official series), makes the service fee $2.91/month...
 
Those that have questions on what they rebuilt with the skippy, its graphical from what they have said. Look at the steering wheel/instruments and wheels. The instrument cluster looks much more realistic and the suspension is much more detailed. The tires are also completely round now instead of having a small chunky appearance at certain angles.

it's all very subtle, but if you drive the car regularly you'll notice it.
 
bLIMEy rock, finally. been waiting for that being updated for a long time. on forums people say the skip update will be the outside but not the physics. rumour has it there were problems with the new damage model and the old outside, but all this may just be hearsay / speculation.
 
In the video, when it shows the 2008 graphics compared to 2019, they just about look the same, just the 2019 has a warmer colour tone with a lower sun.
Those aren't the 2008 graphics, it's just the 2008 version of the track. It you search YouTube, iRacing looked way worse in 2008.

...don't reply to these guys, you know, when it's about iracing, people always talks without knowing....when it's not about the $system, it's bleaching about this or this... the truth is they prefears another sim (...let me guess : AC or ACC), glad for them, no need to be a hater...

Big fan of iRacing, love Lime Rock (original track) but i'm not super excited about the new layout and the tire marks in the first screenshot look really off. Kinda gray and odd looking marks.
Thought it looked like weird shadows instead of tire marks, lol.

Ohhh OK. I misunderstood the video. I thought they were showing graphics progress since they also showed the 2004 pre-release track so when they went to the 2008 it seemed like that was literally from 2008 going from how the video made it seem.

I just watched the video again. I don't know, the way the video's made really makes it seem like they're showing the track as it was in those years (2004, 2008, 2019).

Relax :) You mention other people talking without knowing yet you're doing the same thing. I generally play all sims fyi. I barely care about graphics. For me it's physics 1st, FFB 2nd, audio a close 3rd, and graphics probably in 5th or 6th place. I was just stating an observation, that's all :)

I was going to say the same. They look odd, like some shadow from a big curvy object hovering above the track rather than rubber marks on the pavement. I bet in-game it looks fine though.

om what I saw, everyone that owns the original gets the new Skippy.
definitly not. It's was the MX5. Remember buyinh the skippy and not knowing how to drive it, thinking what a waste of money... Turns out, like most I suppose, that now I love it!
 
Lime Rock was default content, the Skippy was not. From what I saw, everyone that owns the original gets the new Skippy.
haven't read/heard that yet, but then again I never follow the podcasts. What iRacing often does (if I remember correctly): If you bought/rented the content within the last 24 months and it gets updated, you get the update for free, if you bought/rented it before, you have to pay again but only half the price. For me this would mean half price and I'd be willing to pay that if the immersion gets significantly better. Looks like it does from the vid above.

That is typically what they do when they come out with a newer version of a car model (along with including the older car as default content). When the Dallara IR18 came out, they game everyone who purchased the 2012 model within the X months a credit. But this is the same car, just updated graphics.

From what I read in their forums, the update is free for those that own the content already.

Born to lose but built to win..
Iracing needs to be a lot more consumer friendly. They should update the tracks, not re-create them with the same assets then charge you for them. its a big turn off.
 
well, the oval is the oval and the infield is 80% new as are the chicanes in the oval. But did they charge us? Isn't it still base content and thus free? I couldn't say.
