rFactor 2 Limerock Update


Lime Rock Park v2.0 Now Available!
Originally intended to be little more than a quick weekend project to implement the latest RealRoad and terrain shaders, this extensive update definitely deserves to carry the v2.0 version number.
Plenty of issues have been addressed, and virtually every object has been optimized for a smoother experience. Apart from those fixes, the rebalanced art provides a more detailed, natural and consistent look. As a little extra, we’ve placed some cones in the paddock for some R/C car action.
