    Wouldn't that be cool, tho, eh? People whining about the graphics of a free game. :)

    Regarding rf2 or any other game's graphics is that you see it before you buy it. There's even a demo of it available, just to make sure. So why buy it and whine about it after, as if it's a total surprise? This when Studio397 made quite an effort to bring all the bells and whistles of DX11 to it.

    Is it needed in an updated mod thread though? Ok in a post from S397 talking about their sim perhaps, but here? Just seems out of place. The modders have no power over how the sim looks.

    yes, yes... we all agree graphics can be improved... but reading that on every single post about rf2 is like a broken record, especially when it's about a mod which btw, has already improved graphics.

    Oh my gooooooooood...... it looks way better real time, screenshots does not make justice for rF2.

    Though I have seen some crazy screens made by users in the forum.

    Anyone to race online these group C cars soon ?

    We ran these cars a few weeks ago (before this update) in an RD club race event. The response was pretty positive, I must say. I'm not saying that it's perfect and it might not be to everybody's taste, but I think everyone who raced said they loved it.
    There are some options, in the Tuning Menu - most notably a FFB strength selector. The default FFB was way too strong for me, and for the other guys I spoke to about it. We were running it at 2 or 3 out of ten and that seemed about right to me.
    Try it Marc, it's free. :D

    Yes, and you know what, AC fanboys are a bit much to take as well. They come to rF2 forums all the time and poop on threads claiming how AC graphics are better. Are they? Let's see.

    Yes, onboard AC looks better (and I agree onboard is more important as we spend the most time there), but if you look at recent content (McLaren 720) it's not night and day difference anymore. However, when we look at exterior cameras, AC simply sucks. Maybe I need to change something in my settings and please tell me what in that case because I hate how AC renders the cars. It is so fake looking.
    The cars look like they don't belong in the game. They look like badly extracted samples from a random picture and pasted in without paying attention to lighting. Below are some examples, first two images from AC, the rest from rF2. I tried to be as fair as possible and wanted to take more samples from AC, but I've learned that Alt-tabbing while in replay mode freezes AC for me. I'm not about to load a game, drive around to grab one screen and repeat every time the game crashes to post more pics. The two here should be enough to show what I'm saying.

    rR2 on the other hand has great looking cars. They just mesh nicely with the environment and look like they belong there. I'm talking strictly about cars (stock content), tracks are a different issue and will again depend on how good is the mod (Hockenheim mod here, I didn't want to use Sebring which would be way better). For AC I used stock Nurburgring.

    The images are taken straight from the games (replays) as I play them. No tweaking, no photo modes apart from resizing and cropping. I actually have the gfx settings higher in AC than in rF2, lol. To be completely honest, both AC and rF2 look slightly better in game than these screenshots, but it doesn't change the fact that AC cars look badly pasted in. How can people not see that? I installed natural look mod for AC, but it didn't help. Possibly that's the reason why AC images are less saturated. Oh, and what's up with chromatic aberration in AC? Is it supposed to look cool?

    So here you go, head to head images. IMO, rF2 kills AC when it comes to exterior graphics.

    BTW, I still think Raceroom from onboard looks better than both AC and rF2, even though it is still on DX9. Crazy

    Looking forward to try this mod, those cars are always interesting to drive and the feeling of those small cockpits in VR are always a pleasure. Thank you for all the efforts to make those mod car as realistic as possible, it adds to the experience and understanding of what those real drivers have to deal with. Keep up the good work.:)

    Yesterday hated C11 online, today entered same server (only empty now), and it felt like different car, absolutely awesome !! I'm just crazy, or physics/ffb are not constant in rF2 ?

    Definitely going to try these out.
    Although not online, my driving skill is maybe 60% of what the C1s are capable of and I don't want to slow anyone down.
