Yeah. They need to get some new download sources because the only fast download source is inconsistent and the downloading keeps slowing down gradually and therefore making it a 6 hour project downloading a 1GB file.

Haven't tried the normal dl's but the torrent came in 1MB/s here so maybe it is an option for you to try that one.

I could never get 1mb/s through LimeWire. I'm using the German website psx-racing.de. The second download mirror is fair but I keep getting this odd inconsistency for some reason, like there is something that is blocking it.

Thankfully it ran smooth once I got to a certain point and I am installing without any problems.

Actually i take back my last post when i got rFactor working i installed the mod again and i works fine i love it :p

Kyle Evers

I know. I love it too :). Just as I would expect it to be. I haven't played with a full grid yet, or even done an actual race (only practices), but I love the cars. Even the slow cars are fun to drive!

It is an absolutely amazing mod though. We have been having some fun with it over at BFR and have been completely blown away by the quality and detail of the sound in this mod.

Hearing the Mazerati roar or the scraping of the chasis as you ride the curbs :D

I love the sound of the E46 M3 GTR, that it awesome. The scream of the tranny is so godly. I think the Alzen Porsche needs some work. The turbo itself sounds good, but the car sounds weak.

I have finally downloaded it yesterday and gave it a good test, and to be honest i don't understand anything about the hype that is about this mod.

The cars are all models from other games and feel lousy in physics. Like i am playing GTR2 again when i drive the beemers and porsches.

The track is awesome for sure, best on out there detail wise.

Overall: :bad:

Its depends which car you choose Bram. I tried a few and some of them felt not good at all, but maybe that's for a reason. The Opel Manta could be driving bad for real :)
I tried a porsche (forgot which one; too much of them) and felt good.
Maybe because I like the porsches in GTR2 also :)

For me the biggest let down is the overall performance compared to eachother. Its almost impossible to make a good combination of equal cars to race. (and lets not talk about the cryptic names when you try to choose them in the dedicated server)
So it will/can mostly be used for cup racing; which is not a bad thing btw :)

Have not yet tried the track. :)

the worst car ive tried on there is the Peugeot 206, it bounces around so much you get the slightest slide or the slightest tap it will spin or roll over.

I have things to complain about too when it comes to this mod, but you have to understand how VLN actually works to understand the mod.

I just think it's loads of fun. Plus the track is really nicely detailed. The new cars are really nice too, like the BMW M3 GTR, even though it was a conversion from GTR2.

I don't have GTR 2 anyway, so this is a good mod for me.

I guess it is a good example of 'different strokes for different folks.' It will appeal to some and not to others. For me it is not about the fidelity of the graphics or the accuracy of the car models (or where the car models originally come from) :D. That would be a case of examining every leaf on every tree, or every tree in every grove.

Instead - I prefer to stand back and appreciate the beauty of the forrest that is VLN in its entirity. The package as an experience is what I love. :kiss2:

Just tested this mod this weekend. First impressions were great.
For those who doesn't know this mod, you can find many classes of many cars as:
Ford Focus - Several Porsche and BMW models - Honda Civic and S2000 - Renault Clios
Volvos - Peugeot - Opel Astra DTM model and the lovely Opel Manta - Maserati 3200 GT
Lotus - Alfa 147 diesel and so on.......185 models.

I did a 1 hour race at Zandvoort with a S3 class Clio and it was a blast, fighting with other Clios,
Honda Civic and a few BMW. :)
