A note to painters. This new material update appears to have some of the same issues as the updates for the Challengers Pak. Notably, you can paint a car and use it as your ride, but you cannot add new skins to the AI yet. Something that S397 has noted via discord they are investigating.

Once I forced myself to get used to the UI design and HUD, I'm starting to like rF2 more than AC, despite the lack of quality mod tracks when compared to AC. Developers should keep on improving this gem, driving and FFB feels way more satisfying, and AI is surprisingly reasonable on 100%.
I prefer rF2 with paid GT3 cars over what ACC is shaping up to be atm.

I feel the same, I just bought rFactor 2, the UI feels a bit unusual :) but today I went back to Raceroom and AC, was the ffb always so boring in those sims, so lifeless, so uninformative. This was the first thing I noticed when I drove the first few labs at Sebring, the ffb is different compared to all other sims. I don't understand the lack of content, tracks, UI, the graphics can look so much better compared to AC, Raceroom and iRacing. I hope the best for rFactor

Still can't see updates do you have to uninstall the other versions ?
This multi packages for the same car is ridiculous

I bought individual vehicles within the GT3 pack. I do not have any updates. Am I being penalised for not buying the pack, rather than individual items?

If you are struggling to see the update - try unsubscribing and re subscribing in the DLC inventory. Should do the trick :)

Just go to "My Profile" section on Steam and on the right hand side your inventory should be shown under Badges and Games. Find the cars from the rF2 section and unsub and then re sub to each one in turn.

A bit of an awkward thing to have to do, but hey, nothing of any great worth comes without a challenge :D

Sometimes you have to go an unsubscribe and resubscribe to the cars in your Steam Inventory for hte update to kick off.

I find the rF2 DLC system very frustrating...

It's basically all governed by Steam, sometimes shutting Steam down and restarting is enough to trigger an update.
