    I don't know how the rf2 plugins handle vertex normals in 3dsmax (3dsmax itself of course can handle them) but at least with gjed you can not import custom vertex normals to the editor or export them to gmt as gjed does something to them (read: breaks them). This means you need to add lots of additional support loops to get the kind of clean surfaces and edges that the car is missing + the obvious issues around some seams. Maybe the plugin has this same issue which naturally hurts some parts of the car a lot when you get the rf2 vertex normals instead of something the modeller has set up in his model. Just an example the roof to windshield transition in the real car is pretty sharp edge but in the model it is extremely round. The geometry might be correct but the wrong vertex normals make it round. I'd expect to see those issues and the resulting shading issues in free to download mods made by my own level skilled modellers but not in a paid dlc cars assumedly done by pros 10+ years of experience. And what's up with those shaders. Why is the car covered in milk?

    I am a big fan of your RSS GT Pack for AC and find it worth every dollar spent, absolutely brilliant pack....when are these cars coming to rFactor2 so the Race Sim Studio Dev team can show me how good cars can really look like in rF2.:):)....as I would purchase them promptly.

    This is from the VLN series at the Nurburgring. It raced at the VLN 8 for the first time, along with the new Audi R8 Evo. Also, it is the GT3 package.

    I believe the guys still hard at work on the RF2 implementation the last car is currently been completed 3D wise, 5 cars ingame and look really nice so far from what we have seen,
    hopefully shouldnt be too long S397 are releasing there new shaders and settings so they will get updated into the pack as well at some point,

    there is nothing wrong here with this RF2, as a twice purchaser of the software as I missed the steam emails when it was getting added so purchased the software again,
    just feel let down slightly with some of the cars been added,
    the software as so much potential its coming along really nice, the physics and the audio engine,
    graphically it was always a step behind the competition,
    physics wise always a step infront,
    but at this stage why undo all the hard work with cars that look really bad, I am sure no one would mind waiting another 2-3 weeks to get the cars how they should be, why release them if clearly they are not ready or at the stage of been ready, idk odd choices to me,
    personally I find this UI very nasty looking and confusing, hopefully soon will start using it more the software,

    but like I say nothing wrong with 95% of what S397 have been doing with the engine which is remarkable, but for sure there is a few cars with big ????marks on them no doubts about it. :)

    I can't see the paint in the cabin so I'm less concerned with graphic or cad imperfections, more concerned with how it drives as I'm stuck at work.
    Is it close to any of the other cars in the pack?

    Years ago when people raved about rF2 physics tyres chassis immersion
    AC and pCars lovers said repeatedly every update " oh they are getting better because they are always doing updates you will see" !

    Yeah sorry........still don't see it, they still both drive ordinary in comparison

    Bashing modders now ? .......... what a sad lot you are

    1:1 image (cropped, org res 2560x1600). Reasonable distance. I don't see what you're showing.

    Graphical issues aside, car drives great. I'm surprised I like it so much as I've never been huge AM fan, but this baby is definitely one of the favorites. At this point I'm faster in Porsche, McLaren or Audi - probably need more practice in Aston, but at the same time it is possibly more fun to drive. @Marcel Offermans - great addition, thanks S397:thumbsup: AMGT3_rf2.jpg

    It's true that in terms of car physics and driving pleasure no other sim can compete and that's what we're looking for in simu I think!

    Off topic I know, but if your looking for a superb mod, look no further than the newly ungraded Flat6 Series rF2 build 5.00 by Enduracers. Just took it for a spin on the fabulous new Bridgehampton Race Circuit (LilSki /Digga conversion).

    RFactor 2 reflection update rate on every car is like an ugly slow motion. It makes the car felt slow. And the multiclass grid is random not classified by each class? Or it's just me haven't found the right setting?

    Does the front still swap ends with the rear with the slightest dab of brakes still or have they fixed the brake bias with v5?

    • PHYSICS : Brake pressure is now adjustable. I don't recall if you could adjust brake bias in older builds but you're now able to.
    PS. If needed you can always increase or decrease the brake bias according to your braking style and brake pressure setting used. At Spa i increased my brake bias to 60 using the default brake pressure and was able to do some heavy brake action with no problem. Don't forget to blip when down-shifting!
