  1. L'attivissimo Studio 397, che vi ricordiamo ha rilevato dagli ISI lo sviluppo di rFactor 2, ha pubblicato sul blog ufficiale un nuovo Roadmap Update del mese di Febbraio, per aggiornare gli appassionati sullo sviluppo del software, su cosa si sta lavorando al momento e cosa aspettarsi nell'immediato futuro. Il menu proposto è decisamente ricco, visto che si parla di VR, grafica in DirectX 11, una nuova struttura per le competizioni, menu UI, il circuito di NOLA, comunicazioni Radio e persino un interessante invito ai modders... Fate riferimento al forum per discussioni e commenti. We have a lot of exciting news in this month’s update as we edge closer to our release at the end of Q1. The team is working very hard in all areas and we’re thrilled to share some of the recent developments with you. Updates include new DX11 screenshots, a release date for NOLA Motorsports Park, an update on VR, our UI, competition support, radio communication and an offer to help modders upgrade their content to DX11. We have a lot of exciting news in this month’s update as we edge closer to our release at the end of Q1. The team is working very hard in all areas and we’re thrilled to share some of the recent developments with you. VR Update With DX11 implementation complete, we are now in our first development stage for VR. Our initial focus is the in-car driver experience with both the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive. The second development stage will delve deeper into the environmental capabilities of the VR experience, which we will share over the next couple of months. DX11 Content Peek Last month we shared with you our first comparison shots for DX11. In the last couple of weeks we’ve focused on ensuring compatibility with existing content as well as further improvements to the way we render our HDR output. We’ll let the new screenshots speak for themselves. Competition Update Development of the competition infrastructure is going well and is on track to be released this summer. Drivers and teams will be able to record their stats, achievements and results, which then can be accessed through any device and shared with friends. Competitions will feature selected existing content and new content. Details will be announced in the coming months. Our main focus is to create feature rich mechanics that provide a challenge for new drivers and seasoned sim racing veterans alike. UI Update We are super excited about our new user interface, which is currently under development. The new UI not only provides a more intuitive and user-friendly experience, it also offers improved flexibility and the ability to add new elements and modules. NOLA Motorsports Park Whether you choose to race a kart, open wheeler, or tintop, the large variety of configurations makes NOLA a very versatile and challenging track to master. NOLA Motorsports Park will be released on February 28th! Radio Communication Most racing series use radio communication to let drivers talk to their team and pit crew. Some series also have race control broadcasting instructions. For example, oval racing series such as Stock Car typically also have spotters that keep an eye on what’s happening to keep you out of trouble. We are working on expanding our current system, which is centered on the spotter’s role, into a system that allows different people to talk to you on the radio. In addition, we intend to make the communication more interactive by giving you the ability to ask for information or instructions. Modding We’re excited to invite modding teams to join our private forum. We are looking to work with those of you in the modding community to explain the necessary steps that ensure your content continues to work flawlessly with the new DX11 engine. Modders joining our forum will also get access to pre-release builds of the DX11 graphics engine (still in alpha). Our goal is to ensure that your content is ready to go when we do the first public release of the new engine. If your modding team is interested, please register on our forum and start a conversation with Christopher and Marcel, stating: Your modding team name and all the names and forum names of members that need access. A list of mods you have released for rFactor 2 (either links to the workshop, or some other reference). Any other interesting information about your team such as mods you are still working on. That wraps up this roadmap update. We are looking forward to the coming month of development so we can continue to share with you our progress on the new innovative elements planned over the next few months!
  2. Il team Studio 397 ha appena rilasciato per il suo rFactor 2 il nuovo aggiornamento update 2 dedicato alla recente Buil 1108. L'update, oltre a correggere qualche bugs, apporta varie migliorie al sonoro, alla grafica, alla fisica ed anche al codice del simulatore. Oltre alla build aggiornata, è stata rilasciata anche la nuova versione 1.2 dell'affascinante Nissan GT500 che vede te nelle immagini qui sotto. And we’re back, as promised, with an updated Nissan GT500 – there’s a worthy set of improvements and upgrades to get excited about! On the physics side, we’ve added a new set of tyres, including a full range of compounds for added strategy and increased competitiveness. The previous dry compound is now split into three types – soft, medium, and hard. We’ve also added an intermediate compound for light wet conditions. The all-new audio for the GT500 is a complete overhaul. We’ve replaced all sounds to give a deeper range and a more raw and resonant feel. Full credits for this go to Rick Schoenmaker, who did an awesome job! On the graphics side, we’ve made some considerable improvements and added features, including improved car body reflections, backfire effects, headlight lens flare, and more. We’ve had community feedback from many different people here, and we would like to mention Ales Ogrinc for generously contributing several 3D objects for inclusion in the update. Accompanying this update is a new build: 1108 update 2. Like update 1 we released on December 28th, 2016, this build is fully backward compatible, which means there is no need to update your dedicated server. With this new build we introduce a new system to distribute templates with our cars. As soon as you upgrade to the new build, whenever you start the Launcher, it will install templates into a folder called “Templates” in your rFactor 2 main folder. Do not edit those files in place though, as they will be overwritten on updates of the car. Make a copy before you start designing your own livery. The new version of the Nissan can be found in the workshop, and you will automatically be updated if you are subscribed to it. Check out the full change log below: Sounds Added a completely new pack of sounds that should be a lot closer to the way the original car sounded. Graphics Added additional tyre compounds, the car now has soft, medium, hard, intermediates and full wet compounds. Added additional rim types to reflect the ones used by the different teams. Added fluorescent shader for digits on the dashboard. Added backfire graphics. Fixed a gap between the driver helmet and the body. Fixed tyres going through the fenders when under load. Updated body 3D shape, adding a missing floor, correcting the front fender shape and some smaller tweaks. Updated icons. Improved cockpit textures on the fans, door handles and several other small details. Improved body reflections. Improved level of detail (LOD) models. Improved exhaust model and textures. Improved windows in cockpit view and added the missing side windows. Improved liveries. Improved headlights, now with lens flares. Physics Added new tyre compounds to match those added to the graphics. Updated a few garage settings. Slightly tweaked the AI physics. Code (Build 1108 update 2) Added code that allows car modellers to tweak the body roll for AI physics to ensure tyres don’t go through fenders graphically. Introduced a simple mechanism for distributing templates with cars (which will end up in a “Templates” folder until the new UI is released). Fixed a problem where the launcher accidentally URL encoded passwords, making it impossible to join servers with certain characters in the password.
  3. Il team Studio 397 ha rilasciato la nuova Build 1108 di rFactor 2, la prima ad essere disponibile esclusivamente tramite Steam, con il passaggio scontato alla piattaforma digitale prolungato fino al 31 gennaio 2017. Proprio Steam ci offre da subito un supporto migliore per il gioco in modalità offline e la correzione di un bug sui driver di alcune schede video Nvidia. L'acquisto annuale di rFactor 2 viene eliminato, perchè si vuole spingere gli appassionati ad utilizzare di più la modalità online, che è stata aggiunta nella versione gratuita del gioco. Studio 397 prosegue comunque lo sviluppo di rFactor 2 con l'attesa grafica DirectX 11 e una nuova interfaccia utente, più semplice, più accattivante e più adatta all’uso con i visori VR. Prosegue anche il lavoro sulle nuove licenze, con la Radical quasi completa ed il nuovo accordo con la General Motors per riprodurre la Corvette C7R del 2016. Si lavora anche sulle piste, a cominciare da Nola Motorsport e sulla modalità multiplayer del gioco. Release of Build 1108 Introduction Finally, it’s time for the first Studio 397 release of rFactor 2! It’s been a few months since the last build was released, so we thought we’d take the opportunity to give you an update on what the team has been busy working on. After taking over development, our first order of business was optimizing and automating the entire build process and setting up a new internal bug tracking system – two improvements that will help speed up public releases of fixes and features. We brought new members into our team to move the project forward in terms of graphics, user interface, infrastructure, content and overall optimizations, which you will start to see in the first quarter of 2017 and beyond. For this first release our focus was on fixing bigger issues such as video driver crashes, optimizing and fixing elements of the workshop and starting work on improving the stock car and oval experience. We have invested a considerable amount of time in developing and testing stock car, specifically stock car rules, since the last public release. With the help of a dedicated group of stock car league admins and stock car specialists on our test team, we identified some of the crucial issues that need to be addressed. We continually seek to improve our stock car and oval experience. For this first release of several upcoming changes we focused on sorting issues under caution and adding more flexible options for server admins. We’ve also taken a close look at oval behaviour optimizations of the AI in single player, especially (but not exclusively) for short ovals. Stock Car The safety car is now set to ‘non-collidable’ by default – testing has shown this can help avoid certain oval-related caution situations in which the safety car has trouble weaving its way to the front of the field. The value can be set to ‘collidable’ in the player.JSON file by editing the following values: "Safety Car Collidable": true. After this update, we recommend server admins backup and remove player.json and multiplayer.json, so that new ones are generated containing all new options and defaults. Several minor adjustments and tweaks to help optimize scoring. Further improvements to the track order of cars leaving the pits under caution. Fixed a bookkeeping error under caution with one lap until restart. Changed AI behaviour to prevent pitting on the last lap of a caution. This helps to avoid messy and disorderly restarts and it makes the AI look a bit smarter too. Better awareness of what to do under caution. Added an extra message to the Low Speed Information pop up: “Please pass the safety car.” This should help you be more aware of where you are with respect to the safety car under a full course caution and should improve sorting overall as drivers no longer have to guess whether to pass the safety car. Changed pit exit behaviour to allow cars to be placed in a large gap rather than behind the whole field, which might be nearly a full track length behind the car exiting on some of the smaller ovals. Fixed pit behaviour: A car entering the pit lane after a race resumes from a caution will no longer be able to continuously lap the field during the next caution. Fixed a possible scoring mix-up when a full course caution was called while the race leader was in the pits. Fixed a bug in which cars starting late from the garage area (those that did not press the Race button in time), after the field had gone ahead, were sometimes wrongly scored at race start. Cars starting late from the garage area now have to wait for the entire field to pass the pit-exit line to be able to join the race and go on track. Added a new single player feature "AI Formation by Position" that when set to “true” in the player.json attempts to line up the AI during yellow flag/formation laps according to your position behind the pace car instead of relative to surrounding cars. This seems to work better on short ovals, whereas the old (default) way might still work better for road courses. Added new options for configuring an oval server, which can be found in the CustomPluginsVariables.json: Added two types of double file which can be configured by editing the value "DoubleFileType" where “0” is off (or single file), “1” will ignore lapped and pitted distinctions, and “2” (the default) is standard double file. Wave-arounds can now be set to on or off for more flexibility by editing the following value: "WaveArounds" “0” is off, “1” is on. Added the ability to configure number of caution laps by editing the following value: "YellowLapsMinimum" Added the ability to configure random number of caution laps editing the following value: "YellowLapsRandom" AI Fixed AI behaviour to prevent them from taking off immediately after what should be their pit stop following their final qualifying lap, which would get them disqualified. Fixed AI behaviour to prevent AI from getting disqualified during qualifying on certain tracks where it is difficult to pit immediately after completing n-1 laps. Physics Temperature and load of the tyre contact patch. Added a new TGM display. While driving, it was possible to pull up a graph showing the contact patch for each tyre that showed the temperature of the tyre at that point of the contact patch (ALT =). The second display now shows the tyre load. Changed TTool filename. TTool, a tool that is used to generate tyres for cars, used to output a file named “QSA” when you ran a real-time batch test. That filename has now been corrected to “realtime”. Fixed an issue where camber angles for tyres reported as zero in real-time telemetry instead of their real angle. Also, this now allows plugins to see the correct angles. Driver Swaps Fixed occasional crash when a wheel gets reattached/repaired during a pit stop at the same time as a driver swap. Graphics Fixed the multiview gizmo that allows you to enter your triple screen configuration. It now saves and remembers asymmetrical monitor configuration parameters. Fixed sporadic nVidia driver crash on certain tracks. The fix, which is only needed if you were experiencing driver crashes and restarts, can be activated by changing the value WorkaroundFlags=1 in the Config.ini with a text editor. Please make sure to delete your shader cache manually (the files in UserData\Log\Shaders) when making this change. Removed the option to disable HDR. Dedicated Server Changed the logic so that the dedicated server properly moves on to the next track in all cases regardless of which sessions are active. User Interface/Launcher Engine mixture settings are part of the setup. Added an Engine Mixture setting to garage so it can be saved as part of a car setup. Updated Launcher icons. Added new user interface background image and splash screen. Fixed Launcher to work correctly in Steam’s offline mode. It will no longer hang while attempting to download pending workshop items in this mode. Updated French language dictionary. Additional Changes We’ve made racing online free for every user of rFactor 2. Fixed results file when VehFile uses escape characters. Removed DRS enabled/disabled messages for tracks without DRS zones. Added +skipmonitor as a command line option, which lets you enter from and exit a race directly to the main menu This post has been promoted to an article

    rFactor 2: Roadmap Update December 2016

    Lo Studio397 ha appena pubblicato un nuovo roadmap per aggiornarci sullo sviluppo del suo rFactor 2. La prima notizia interessante è che martedi 20 dicembre sarà rilasciata la nuova build 1108 del simulatore ex ISI, che sarà disponibile esclusivamente tramite Steam (l'offerta per trasferire il software su Steam è prorogata fino al 31 gennaio). La nuova release porta con sè alcune novità interessanti, spiegate qui di seguito in dettaglio, mentre il team è già in beta testing con la nuova grafica in DirectX 11... On Tuesday, December 20th, we will release build 1108. This is our first Steam-only release, and we would like to remind you of our offer to migrate to Steam for free, which will be extended until January 31st, 2017. To reiterate where we are, we are making really good progress with a new development team coupled with a new vision. As long time sim racers, we understand the need for a strong platform with great content, physics and visuals as well as competition, both online and offline. A detailed changelog will be posted alongside the actual release, but some of the highlights of this build include a huge update to our Stock Car rules, better support for running Steam in offline mode – which can be very useful in LAN situations and a fix for the nVidia driver bug that has been plaguing some users of certain series of nVidia cards. Good news! We’re ahead of our DX11 development schedule and are internally testing the first builds now. There is still a lot to do in terms of adding new features such as depth of field and motion blur effects on external cameras as well as overall improvements such as the shadow system. Needless to say, the results so far are looking good. We are really excited about the capability we have already and where it’s going. Our goal to keep the engine backward compatible seems achievable, and in the upcoming months we will start engaging the modding community providing information on the improved engine and how best to utilise it. As we’ve announced last month, we are completely revamping the user interface of rFactor 2 to make it easier to use, nicer to look at and ready for VR. We’re leveraging modern web technology and are currently in the middle of the design phase. To give you a first impression, we’ve added a screenshot of a WIP car selection screen. Concerning content, we are very excited with the direction we are headed, certainly in the way plan to match cars and tracks. We will start to develop this approach over the next few months. We have a number of car developments underway. With our current focus on the Radical, we are adding the finishing touches to the 3D model right now while we wait for some additional data to complete the physics model. More great news! We have just signed a license with General Motors for the 2016 model of the Corvette C7.R. Development of the model ans physics will start early next year. The 2016 model has significant aerodynamic improvements with a new, larger splitter and a large diffuser to generate more downforce. The car is the weapon of choice for Corvette Racing in their 2017 IMSA campaign as well as their effort to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans. As an added bonus, this car will also contribute to improving car physics overall. In terms of tracks, we’ve already shown you previews of NOLA Motorsports Park in earlier updates, and we’re now in the final stages of development. The track will feature 5 different road course layouts and 5 different karting layouts, and we’re currently placing track side objects, such as grand stands, trees and a ferris wheel and are working on AI paths. It’s looking good for release early next year. Now let’s talk about online. Since the release of rFactor 2 the pricing consisted of a one time payment and an online subscription, with the option of buying a lifetime version of that subscription. Over the years we have received a lot of questions about charging extra for online access, and what people were getting for this in return. We understand that online racing is key to the future of the platform. As online racers ourselves, we have decided to provide online access for everybody with the Steam version for free – simplifying the pricing model and encouraging everybody to race online. Steam will take care of automated updates. We recognise that some of you have made this purchase over the past few months, and it was a difficult decision. However, we’re positive that you’ll agree we’ve made the right decision for the future of the platform. With the Steam Winter Sale approaching what better way for you to relax and driver rFactor 2. Look out for an exclusive offer for the holiday period! That’s all for our last monthly update of 2016. Happy Simracing and have a great holiday. We hope to see you all in the new year!

    rFactor 2 Build 1108 update 1

    Il team Studio 397 ha appena rilasciato un primo update 1 per l'ultima build 1108 del suo rFactor 2. L'aggiornamento si preoccupa di correggere alcuni bugs segnalati dagli utenti, dettagliati a questo link del forum. After releasing build 1108 about a week ago, we got a lot of good feedback from the community and also some bug reports. As always, we very much appreciate your input, even though we cannot always respond to every report individually. We previously explained that we spent some time optimizing our development process, so it should come as no surprise that we’re releasing this update now. This is not the last bugfix we will do, but it is probably the last one we’ll do this year. So from Studio 397, we wish you all a happy new year! The Steam BuildID for this update is 1543400, and you can check your BuildID by opening the Steam Client, going into the library, then right click on rFactor 2 to open the context menu. From there, choose “Properties” and in the window that opens select the tab called “Local Files”. The “Current content BuildID” is mentioned there. Changes Added an empty “Packages” folder to the dedicated server and to rFactor 2 itself. Both distributions were missing this folder, which caused some confusion. Fixed an issue with nonexistent workshop items. If you were subscribed to a workshop item that was subsequently removed or made invisible to you, Steam would continue to report you as “subscribed” to that item. Because the item no longer exists, it would, however, cause our Launcher to hang whilst waiting for it to download, which could never happen, of course. We’ve made the code more robust and tried to detect all such cases, so you should no longer experience this issue.
  8. Lo Studio397 ha appena pubblicato un nuovo roadmap per aggiornarci sullo sviluppo del suo rFactor 2. La prima notizia interessante è che martedi 20 dicembre sarà rilasciata la nuova build 1108 del simulatore ex ISI, che sarà disponibile esclusivamente tramite Steam (l'offerta per trasferire il software su Steam è prorogata fino al 31 gennaio). La nuova release porta con sè alcune novità interessanti, spiegate qui di seguito in dettaglio, mentre il team è già in beta testing con la nuova grafica in DirectX 11... Roadmap Update December 2016 On Tuesday, December 20th, we will release build 1108. This is our first Steam-only release, and we would like to remind you of our offer to migrate to Steam for free, which will be extended until January 31st, 2017. To reiterate where we are, we are making really good progress with a new development team coupled with a new vision. As long time sim racers, we understand the need for a strong platform with great content, physics and visuals as well as competition, both online and offline. A detailed changelog will be posted alongside the actual release, but some of the highlights of this build include a huge update to our Stock Car rules, better support for running Steam in offline mode – which can be very useful in LAN situations and a fix for the nVidia driver bug that has been plaguing some users of certain series of nVidia cards. Good news! We’re ahead of our DX11 development schedule and are internally testing the first builds now. There is still a lot to do in terms of adding new features such as depth of field and motion blur effects on external cameras as well as overall improvements such as the shadow system. Needless to say, the results so far are looking good. We are really excited about the capability we have already and where it’s going. Our goal to keep the engine backward compatible seems achievable, and in the upcoming months we will start engaging the modding community providing information on the improved engine and how best to utilise it. As we’ve announced last month, we are completely revamping the user interface of rFactor 2 to make it easier to use, nicer to look at and ready for VR. We’re leveraging modern web technology and are currently in the middle of the design phase. To give you a first impression, we’ve added a screenshot of a WIP car selection screen. Concerning content, we are very excited with the direction we are headed, certainly in the way plan to match cars and tracks. We will start to develop this approach over the next few months. We have a number of car developments underway. With our current focus on the Radical, we are adding the finishing touches to the 3D model right now while we wait for some additional data to complete the physics model. More great news! We have just signed a license with General Motors for the 2016 model of the Corvette C7.R. Development of the model ans physics will start early next year. The 2016 model has significant aerodynamic improvements with a new, larger splitter and a large diffuser to generate more downforce. The car is the weapon of choice for Corvette Racing in their 2017 IMSA campaign as well as their effort to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans. As an added bonus, this car will also contribute to improving car physics overall. Photo: Courtesy of Chevrolet, made available under Creative Commons 3.0. (Photo by Richard Prince for Chevy Racing) In terms of tracks, we’ve already shown you previews of NOLA Motorsports Park in earlier updates, and we’re now in the final stages of development. The track will feature 5 different road course layouts and 5 different karting layouts, and we’re currently placing track side objects, such as grand stands, trees and a ferris wheel and are working on AI paths. It’s looking good for release early next year. Now let’s talk about online. Since the release of rFactor 2 the pricing consisted of a one time payment and an online subscription, with the option of buying a lifetime version of that subscription. Over the years we have received a lot of questions about charging extra for online access, and what people were getting for this in return. We understand that online racing is key to the future of the platform. As online racers ourselves, we have decided to provide online access for everybody with the Steam version for free – simplifying the pricing model and encouraging everybody to race online. Steam will take care of automated updates. We recognise that some of you have made this purchase over the past few months, and it was a difficult decision. However, we’re positive that you’ll agree we’ve made the right decision for the future of the platform. With the Steam Winter Sale approaching what better way for you to relax and driver rFactor 2. Look out for an exclusive offer for the holiday period! That’s all for our last monthly update of 2016. Happy Simracing and have a great holiday. We hope to see you all in the new year!

    rFactor 2: Roadmap Update October 2016

    A car we’ve teased before is the USF2000 and we are happy to report that it is almost ready for release. We are particularly proud of this car as we were able to build it with a lot of support from the series and teams so we’ve ended up with a car that is extremely accurate in terms of both physics and car model. On top of that it is also a lot of fun to drive and has become a favourite of many people on the test team. Our next track release is going to be NOLA Motorsports Park. Both the race and kart track will be available in different configurations. We’ve been working on it for the past couple of months. Most of the 3D objects are done and we’re currently assembling everything in preparation for further testing. On the development side a lot has happened. In the background we have moved everything over to new infrastructure that allows us to work on new features in parallel, ensuring that they are only added to the next release when done and tested. We have also spent time automating our processes and intend to use those improvements to deliver updates more quickly. Over the last year we have been working hard in close cooperation with the Stock Car community to improve the rules for oval racing. That work is still ongoing, and we feel we’re on the final stretch now! Announced a month ago, the development of the DX11 engine with VR support is still ongoing. This is obviously a big project and apart from building and integrating the new engine we also need to make sure that we stay compatible with our existing content. Our current timeline for getting this integrated is by the end of Q1 2017. We are also moving closer to the first public release that will be Steam only. It will definitely be released this year and is scheduled to contain a whole list of bugfixes and improvements to the codebase. I would like to take this opportunity to invite everybody that is still using the non-Steam version to take advantage of the free option to migrate to Steam. Future updates will start leveraging more Steam features so the only way to take advantage of those is to move to Steam. Finally, we have an announcement to make. We have secured a license with Radical sportscars and will be bringing those into rFactor 2. With full access to CAD drawings and performance data we can deliver these cars with a very high amount of accuracy. Work on this has just started, but we are very excited as these are great cars to drive and race! That’s all for this month. Happy Simracing! fonte Studio 397
  11. La creazione del nuovo Studio 397 per lo sviluppo di rFactor 2 ha creato parecchia agitazione negli animi dei fans ISI. Una nuova intervista fatta da SimHQ a Marcel Offermans di Studio 397 chiarisce ulteriormente alcuni concetti, nell'attesa del prossimo update del simulatore previsto in arrivo entro l'anno tramite Steam. Le domande si concentrano in particolare anche sul comparto modding e sulle vetture Stockcars ed Indicar. Commenti sul forum. Doug: Let me guess. Solving the current modding situation is a high priority. Is it the highest priority? Marcel: No, the highest priority issues at the moment are DX11, VR support, a better UI, and matchmaking. The workshop already works pretty well from a user perspective. Tools for modders can still be improved though. Doug: How high a priority is making the packaging process easier to use in rFactor 2? Marcel: I would say it is medium priority. I would like it to be easier for people that host leagues, maybe even up to the point where they don’t need to package anything. For modders the packaging system works reasonably well. One thing that I would like to do is to make the tools easier to integrate into automated processes, so you can create scripts that package content and that can run unattended.

    rFactor 2: intervista Studio 397

    La creazione del nuovo Studio 397 per lo sviluppo di rFactor 2 ha creato parecchia agitazione negli animi dei fans ISI. La nuova intervista fatta da Pitlanes a Marcel Offermans di Studio 397 è quindi decisamente utile a chiarire ulteriormente alcuni concetti, nell'attesa del prossimo update del simulatore previsto in arrivo entro l'anno tramite Steam. Fra le questioni chiarite, il fatto che i nuovi contenuti arriveranno a parte, massima priorità al supporto DirectX 11 e VR, implementazione dei motori ibridi ed un nuovo sistema per l'acquisto dei contenuti extra. Will there be DLC’s, maybe including laser scanned tracks? monthly subscription? online cost? Marcel: We are working on a system for “paid content” that can be leveraged both by the community and ourselves. That will allow us to get more licensed content into the game. We will obviously try to ensure this content is of high quality, so we are considering both laser scanning and leveraging 3D CAD data. As an example of the latter, we are quite proud of Silverstone, which is very accurate and beautifully detailed. How long until the first release from Studio 397? Will it be content or a core update? Marcel: The first release is planned for this year and will include a lot of patches and small improvements that have been in development since the last release. This will be the first Steam only update. New content releases are also planned, but we can release those separately.

    rFactor2: intervista allo Studio 397

    parte 1 -> http://www.racedepartment.com/threads/exclusive-marcel-offermans-studio-397-rfactor-2-interview-part-1.126534/ parte 2 -> http://www.racedepartment.com/threads/exclusive-marcel-offermans-studio-397-rfactor-2-interview-part-2.126535/ RD: It was mentioned there was a proposal to bring the rF1 tyre model into rF2 , generating a number of both positive and negative comments. Do you have anything to say on the subject to maybe address some of the concerns raised? MO: Yeah, I've already given a short explanation in the forums when people started discussing that. I think it is a fair discussion. If you look at the rFactor 2 tyre model, it is definitely a more advanced than the one we had in rF1. There is no debate about that what so ever. But in the past couple of months, I've talked to a lot of people who make physics for cars, also people that do that professionally, who take rFactor and make physics for cars used by racing teams. Some of these are saying that yes, the new tyre model is more advanced, but with the data they have, it is actually easier for them to work with the rFactor 1 tyre model and end up with results that are pretty close to the data that they’ve got. So that is the reason why they prefer working with that model. That's the reason why I'm considering it as an option, to enable more people to work with rFactor 2. Again, stressing the point that we are trying to be an open simulation to the whole community, with as many people working with it as we can. In the end, the overall quality of the physics will determine whether people like it or not. Yes there is probably more to like in the new model, but as you well know, there are many other simulations out there that are still using the rF1 tyre model that are also creating quite nice cars. So I'm thinking why not have the benefit of that and offer an option that lets people decide what they want to drive in the end.
  14. Il neonato Studio 397, dopo aver inglobato parte del team ISI ed aver preso in mano lo sviluppo di rFactor 2 (i dettagli qui), dimostra di partire da subito col piede giusto: ha annunciato oggi, con il promo trailer disponibile qui sotto, il lancio, ad inizio 2017, di un vero e proprio film dal titolo "Closing the Gap" dedicato in pratica al mondo del simracing. Il film ci mostrerà un pilota virtuale del Revolution Racing team, impegnato nella 24 Ore di Le Mans del Virtual Endurance Championship, da poco disputata. Ed Trevelyan-Johnson, regista del film, ha commentato cosi l'idea: "At its core, Closing the Gap is a human interest story. Through what is, in essence, a computer game, I got to know a bunch of fairly weird and wonderful people smattered across Europe, who I'm sure I would have never met otherwise. The biggest motivation to make the film was the predicament of familiarity without a face, which I find fascinating. It's interesting to see how a simulation which is the absolute ultimate in technical sophistication can get people together into something very closely related to a real motorsport team." 'Closing the Gap' covers the travels of a race simulation driver as he meets members of his racing team in person for the first time, during the lead up to the Virtual Endurance Championship's 24 Hours of Le Mans'.
