In this thread i would like to see you share your thoughts on what you would like to see in the future rF racing club events.
As i said in the [thread=12325]rFactor - New and Improved[/thread] thread i am going to put together a list of a set number of mods and tracks.
I am currently thinking of 10 different mods and 20 to 30 different tracks.
This way we can limit the amount of changes people need to make in order to race.

After a while, i will change the list to accomodate new mods/ tracks.
I'm thinking three months would be nice...
Here are some things i would like you to consider when putting mods/ tracks in your list:
- They need to offer well balanced, close and especially fun racing.
- I would also like to see mods/ tracks that are realistic in feel, sound and graphics.
- Also maybe consider a default car class for a series of races (maybe openwheelers?)
- For the true hardcore simmers; what would you like to see for a racing series? (possibly F1?)
- Try to think a bit outside the box, no need to do the same kind of events that GTRe offers. Maybe dirt races...?
- In my opinion mods that allready have proven themselfs should be considered first.

I am sure you guys will come up with some great insights on this, and i hope we can come together on this subject to make this a great new start.

Regards, Marcel

I read your note saying this "no need to do the same kind of events that GTRe offers".

My question would be why. Speaking for myself I am a bit bored with Race07/Evo. Every time the same cars, no new good mods (development is still active with rFactor). Tracks are ok.
I like touringcars/GT cars also and would be great to them also in rFactor. Especially GT with the better management in rFactor would be fantastic (pitstops/starting/etc). Most mods support 30+ drivers, which is far more better then the 25 in evo.

That said, I like to see these mods:


  • Karting (not sure which is the most fun mod)
  • Open wheelers:
    • F1 for the hardcore (MMG or CDTP)
    • Indycar for the hardcore (1995 CART Season or CART Factor (once released))
    • Formula Nippon 2007 (accessible open wheeler)
    • rFactor Open Wheeler Trainer or F3 (included with the full version of rFactor)
  • Endurance mod (one of those, not both):
    • LMS Limited Edition
    • Enduro Challenge
  • Small fun classes like (max 2 of those):
    • Clio Cup FFRacers
    • MINI Challenge 2006 UK
    • VW Lupo Cup 2003
    • VW Golf V GTI
  • More serious tin tops (both):
    • Megane Trophy
    • WTCC BMW E90 (WTCC/BTCC/STCC skins inside)
  • Rally Cross (both):
    • Rallycross Group B
    • Mini Cross (old mini cooper)
  • Fun Events:
    • Truck Series Racing
  • Muscle:
    • V8Factor
  • GT (both):
    • EOAA GT (Needs GTR2 to install)
    • HistoricX (Needs GTL to install)

I have no preference in tracks. Those depends heavily on which mod you run. F1 needs more flowing tracks while Lupos needs smaller and tighter tracks.
For tracks its important that they run without (too much) lag and have enough features to accommodate RD.
Speaking for myself I like good looking tracks, but that are not often the best drivable tracks :)

I love the idea of fixed setups, to me that breeds good drivers. The only time that is made or lost is by how the driver adapts to the car.

Good idea Ben

Fixed setups, as long as the brakebalance can be adjusted I won't mind running a fixed setup event.

PCC, Champ Cars, GP79, Australian V8's.

I should say that I will try to make as many rFactor events as I can, unless they clash with league commitments that I have this year.

RACING TIME SCHEDULE, PLEASE IMPROVE IT

Hi guys,

first of all congratulations to the creators and active members of the group for the great work that always ferments on RD :good:

the only thing i would ask to improve racing events is about time schedule
that unfortunately are not the best for those, like me, lives in Italy or nearby where our typical racing start is around 22.00 CET ----> 21:00 GMT :smirk:
I believe my situation is similar to others EU countries, mainly at south, where lifestyles is different with delayed dinner times etc etc

the three types of mod you are using in cycling, very good idea, have a racing start at about 20:00GMT, too soon

i hope relaxed times for next events in order to have it closest to 22.00 CET
Probably there are many silent not active members with the same problem, I think a poll would be useful, but this is only a suggestion :sinister:

abot mods i love very much Historix, PCC, F3, Champ car and old F1 ('79, '85 etc)
about track .... choose one, i'll be with you

thanks for all in advance
ciao

Alex
