    The 90s F1 is a great addition, but it would be nice to be able to import some real skins

    The road from the 2013 launch of RR to what it is today has been mostly about re-doing all the race07 features that had been cut out during the design phase of RR.

    It is sad in a way but back in the design days, the scope and the goals of the platform were also very different from what they are today.

    Really enjoying these dev notes, thanks @J-F Chardon. :thumbsup: Exciting times ahead in R3E land! Love the M1 so looking forward to that, and of course the `90's F1 will be nothing short of fantastic. It seems the sim is coming on leaps and bounds at the moment which is great to see. :cool:

    Eagerly awaiting the next update. Fanatec DD1 native support, even further improved physics/ffb. Golden combination.

    Content wise: Bring it on more and soonish :p

    Really enjoying R3E lately. The Group C's and the 934 have pretty much killed my AC addiction, once I dialed in the FFB. Keep up the great work! And make Alex do more of those "Driver Briefing" videos! Those were amazing.

    Happy to see a early 90s F1 car coming but shame there are no custom liverys possible. I mean…who in the world wouldn’t like to reproduce a let’s say 1991 season?

    Will buy it nonetheless.

    Early 90's formula series. Great.
    And both update to the VW ID.R and a normalisation of this "thing" to be ready for the store (and hopefully for most tracks and normal races).
    Look like the 2 group C cars will get tuff competition on my HD.

    Great info update Sector3 Studio:thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Lighting still looks better than AC with shaders patch/SOL 1.2 RC1, and with significantly less GPU power needed. The residual GPU power can then be applied to either better AA or VR at a solid 90fps.

    The car textures are incredible vs AC's often-blurry low-res liveries. Custom liveries usually means I have to look at a hand-drawn penis or a half-naked anime chick (or whatever sophomoric nonsense they've come up with) on an opponent's hood. No thanks. I'll take proper historic liveries.

    Night would be "nice", but it's hardly critical.

    Weather would be great, but thus far all implementations are GPU-killers (ACC, PC2) or are half-baked (AC+shaders patch; no dedicated rain tires except on DRM 1.2 with no AI integration, no modeling of standing water, implemented inconsistently on a per-track basis = Basically just a cosmetic graphics hack atm).

    Maybe you just need to see "DX11" to think it looks better?

    While I agree on some AC skins/textures being lowres (Nissan skins in ACC are so lowres they need to be redrawn from scratch, otherwise they look like 512*512 GT1/GT2 textures upscaled to 4096*4096 which is really bad), your uneducated take on "custom" skins is laughable and outdated as neither anime chicks nor drawn dicks have been featured on custom skins in a very long time. If you've seen otherwise, you either need to get your eyes checked or engage in the wrong communities or, worse still, you still have PTSD from being a regular on PRC, where it was once shown a livery featuring the catchphrase "Hitler did nothing wrong" that the author/owner of the website proudly used in a few iRacing events before being banned.

    On the other hand, as cringeworthy as it is, the "Itasha" car culture from Japan/Korea (which is the closest thing to anime chicks with dicks drawn on cars) is restricted to either local drifting teams and/or SuperGT teams due to how influential manga are on their culture, especially for the younger generations. Nobody outside of Eastern Asia likes them, nobody outside of Eastern Asia is making them, unless people are recreating liveries used by real life GT3 teams (Hatsune Miku-sponsored cars and the like) and even then, it's not their fault if the Japanese/Korean car culture involves these things which are then "exported" to the West the moment a GT3 team announces an entry to the Spa 24 Hours or the Nurburgring 24 Hours.

    Fun fact, a lot of ex-modders (skinners) started making custom skins and ended up either becoming professionals working for the industry or went freelancer creating liveries for real teams. Redcart, Alex Koda, Keane Design, Arnorallye, Andy Blackmore are the first that come to mind. And none of them ever made a single custom skin featuring anime chicks with dicks. Nor did the tenths of thousands of people that made custom skins for any game over the last couple of decades.

    Thank you for clarifying it :)

    I wish all the best to the people in Sector3. Race07 is still one of my favorite sims, even to this day, along with R3E.

    Cheers.

    TLDR. You like them, I don't. I'll take proper historic skins.

    It includes some real world liveries though, but not from F1. I'm sure you'll find very quickly who they belong to ;)
