    I certainly can't speak for a direct drive wheel with all their strange setup procedures and options, but on a regular wheel, the FFB in this mod is weird to say the least, and I probably wouldn't hesitate to use the word "overdone". The default FFB setting of 5 (available in the tuning menu) is clipping constantly. You have to go all the way down to around 1 (2 max if you don't mind clipping in corners, under braking and such) to get the clipping mostly under control, but then the base forces are fairly weak, though you *still* get moments of really strong jolts on bumps, under braking and such that will clip the FFB pretty hard. It's like someone decided to over-emphasize certain FFB components in the overall FFB mix by turning them up to 11 compared to the rest of the FFB.

    I really like this mod otherwise, the cars are great, but I frankly think the FFB needs work.

    Bloody hard, I tried around Cota and conceded my driving ability was too poor to enjoy these; they boost like nothing else I've tried.
    I may re-look as I've kinda feel I've improved with the GT3's at least but these may soon bring my realisation I suck smack me in the face again haha!

    What difference does it make honestly? Does it seriously damage everyone's psyche if someone discusses some general point about the sim in one of these threads? It happens all the time, but the only time someone complains is if that point happens to be negative. And the comment wasn't even that negative. The guy was talking about how he liked the sim, but just wishes it were a little better in the graphics department. Honestly the fan boys act like a bunch of crotchety little old ladies.

    TLDR

    Obviously the statement about rf2 having the worst graphics are subjective. You aren't going to prove it one way or the other. I play every sim out there, from PC2, AC, ACC, RF2, R3, iRacing. And in my opinion RF2 is at the bottom of the graphics barrel. No amount of screenshots will convince me otherwise as I was just in the bloody game a few hours ago having fun.

    This cultish dedication to one sim or another is stupid. If someone comments that a sim could be better in a certain area, it is not a personal attack. People seem to be a little insane honestly.

    If you drive 10+ year old tracks converted from rF1 (or even older games) with little changes and then complain how the game "has 2004 graphics" (which is exactly what that guy did, judging from what he posted in this thread and in others) or how it's "at the bottom of the graphics barrel" and how "no amount of screenshots will convince you otherwise", don't be surprised people will disagree with you or even make fun of you.

    The guy wasn't asking the modders to make the game look better. The mod is actually pretty nice for rf2. He was just making a general statement about the game. The funny thing is, if his statement had been off-topic but positive, he wouldv'e been up-voted like crazy and no one would've objected to his post. It's typical fanboy hypocritical behavior.

    Honestly in a lot of cases, that is your only choice for many tracks in rf2. I think the root cause is that it is harder to work with than say AC, resulting in less mods. If it had say half the mod support of AC you wouldn't have to load up 10+ year old rips from rf1 to race on a certain track.

    And the only reason I didn't bother to look at that guys ginormous response is that I played both AC and RF2 yesterday and don't need someone to show me what they look like. I already know first hand.

    Jeez, you have such a short attention span.
    Ok, post one image from AC (not photo mode, from actual replay) where cars on the track don't look like some bad extractions from pictures pasted in. I hope that wasn't too long for you :rolleyes:
    One image please

    Denis, sorry for OT, but mods either need to delete ALL posts that are OT (including mine of course), or let us go.
    I'm really tired of posts that have no substance or are just false.

    I just played a bloody game too, and I already know first hand how it looks. So either post a picture or shut up making false claims

    Here's the thing, it's already been discussed in numerous threads, now if someone wants to know more about the mod as per thread title they have to wade through loads of posts that are irrelevant to the topic.
    If some of you guys are so keen to discuss rF2 graphics then start your own thread.

    Loving this, but ... can we race a more common track, so I don't have to learn a new track in a couple of days? :D

    EDIT: Wrong thread :)

    Mak Corp has really done a great job with this mod, and the new shaders too! Great stuff.

    graphics ARE being updated, just not in one over-all update. Getting 'most' of the mods up to the newest graphic level will probably never happen, except for teams like the Group C crew and EnduroRacers or Apex modding who have been updating their mods slowly.

    About ffb, is it possible to someone make custom ffb-plugins etc, general of specific for some cars like it was in rF1? Maybe somebody could make decent one for these cars.

    You don't like the FFB?
    I have to say, that if I use level 1 or 2 in the tuning menu, the FFB feels good to me. I know that Martin doesn't like it, and that's fine, but it's generally accepted that FFB is subjective.
    So long as you are making your own mind up, I think that's fine. But if you allow your interpretation of or feelings about the FFB to be influenced too much by what other people say... well I don't think that would be right. This is only my opinion and others may feel differently, but I think we should all make up our own minds. :)

    Why would I try to convince someone with their mind already made up, when I could care less what you think honestly.
