Spa is always a welcomed addition to any racing simulation.
I'm sure S397 will do a good job of it.
They have, with all of the parts they've 'touched' since taking over the raw state ISI left behind.
I just wish they would 'pause' after this release, to re-visit and correct much of the still glaring non-track/non-car issues. Many of those have existed since the beginning.
If you drop a wheel off the paved surface, the resulting kick-up still looks a horrible mess.
Smoke from tires looks like cotton balls and not at all life-like.
Rain still looks cartoonish despite an ISI RF2 introductory clip which pre-dates the game's release.
Little things matter to overall immersion.
Folks have asked and asked for way too many years, without any timeline for a fix or even a simple acknowledgement of these things.
launching the sim to try getting into a multiplayer session is almost futile...despite checking the four boxes for compatibility.
While new tracks are good to have, it makes little sense to keep releasing them if folks can't race other folks on them.
Or offline. Another wasted evening of restarts and pile ups. Yet more wasted time trying to get historic F2's to complete Belgium '66 followed by GT3's at Nords' with whichever Bentleys randomly stopping dead mid circuit.It's always good to see new stuff, but as much as i can like RFactor2, i won't spend anymore money on it until we get a proper online experience...
I 100% agree! Just pony up the cash and buyout S397. Best of luck, anxiously waiting for your results!RF2 is hopelessly disorganised. NOW we're getting Spa? Are we forgetting the myriad of things unfinished or simply not done.
Perhaps they need new leadership, new drive. A complete overhaul of what, when and how is called for. It's a shame that so much potential just isn't being realised. We're talking a serious amount of time has passed in the life of RF2.
I want it to succeed so badly, I have invested so much emotionally. Just frustrated I guess.
ISI had always said it was all about the online and physical not candy canes and fairy flossISI did not made junk. ISI made great simulation, that was a bit lacking here and there while also being too ambitious for the time, rF2 is probably still too ambitious looking at what simracers are talking and how they are acting. It is not surprising that they left and passed the project over.
You probably do. Or you should choose some simcade or arcade. You will never have joy out of proper simulation if you work very hard and can not properly refresh to deal with intense racing. And it sounds like what you aim for is very intesne racing, because racing at old Spa or modern racecars at Nordschleife will never be easy, and if you aren't absolutely concentrated and able to predict AI, you will never get those races clean with those track/car combinations.Or offline.

You work, give your time away all week just looking forward to the couple of quiet hours when you can fire up Rf2, pick a car and circuit and start a race, and restart, and restart, and restart. Choose another car and start, and restart. Choose another circuit and start and restart and give up for the evening only to do the same next week.
Much as I absolutely love Rf2 when i get a good race out of it, mostly it frustrates the heck out of me. Think i need a new hobby...
How getting SPA is being "hopelessly disorganised" ? Well I agree with you, it is a bit of chaos with rF2 and S397 while moving forward does not seem to be doing any magic, but are you suggesting nothingness ? Nothingness is surely rather well organised.RF2 is hopelessly disorganised. NOW we're getting Spa? Are we forgetting the myriad of things unfinished or simply not done.
Yes, you probably need a new hobby if you some how convince yourself that the only worthy SIM is RF2 and all the other SIM are just pretend SIM.Much as I absolutely love Rf2 when i get a good race out of it, mostly it frustrates the heck out of me. Think i need a new hobby...
