The RDLMS by Vesaro League Management Team would like to make an announcement with regards to the release of a new car pack for the upcoming Thrustmaster 24 Hours of Le Mans. With the release of the brand new version V1.50 build of the Endurance Series modification from EnduRacers and the Gentlemen Modding Team on Friday 19th May, the organising team behind the RDLMS by Vesaro rFactor 2 league here at RaceDepartment have taken the decision to utilise the new build of the modification for the upcoming Thrustmaster 24 Hours of Le Mans on Saturday and Sunday 24th - 25th June. Released to the general public in response to the requirements for mod teams to update to the latest DX11 rFactor 2 build standards, the Endurance Series V1.50 mod also contains considerable changes to the base physics and handling characteristics, so it will be worth noting that teams will need to revise their setup design principles for the remainder of the season. So, what does this mean for the teams? RaceDepartment will be using the the latest version of the Endurance Series mod (build 1.50) for the Thrustmaster 24 Hours of Le Mans and the remainder of the RDLMS by Vesaro season. The custom car / skin pack will be released to participants during week commencing Monday 22nd May. All teams are advised to test their livery with DX11 to ensure no issues are present with the new car pack. If there are any problems with the albedo map (i.e. if it is missing, or has not been correctly applied) you will need submit an updated version of your skin files before 23:59 GMT on Friday 9th June. This deadline is final and late submissions received after the 9th June at 23:59 GMT will not be accepted. NOTE: If there is an issue the symptoms to look out for will be a rather bright looking car that produces a bloom effect, as if it is emitting light. Additionally the RDLMS organisers will be releasing a DX11 compatible version of the Virtua_LM Le Mans 1991-1996 track mod for the upcoming race. A note from Senior RDLMS by Vesaro event admin Daiman Patel: "We, the organisers, shall also assess the skins this week and compile a list of teams who will be required to provide updated files for Round three due to problems with their albedo map; the list shall be publicised next week. If teams could please do this themselves as well it would be much appreciated, to help reduce the workload for staff members because time is going to be very tight. In addition, it will be worth checking out this link - https://www.studio-397.com/guidelines-for-artists/ - which provides instructions on how to correct skin files under the section titled "How to quickly update car skins / color maps". As an additional clarification it is to be noted that participants can elect to use either the DX9 or DX11 build of rFactor 2 for RDLMS events. Both versions of the simulation software are compatible for use within the league, and the game build version to use during the events is entirely optional. Use of DX11 EnduRacers car pack mod released by the RDLMS League Management team is a mandatory requirement, as is the requirement to ensure your livery's are fully compatible with the latest DX11 build of rFactor 2, regardless of the version of the software you choose to race.
