    rF2: Monaco e Belgium aggiornati

    Il team ISI ha rilasciato un doppio aggiornamento per il suo rFactor 2: sono infatti disponibili le nuove versioni 2.0 dei circuiti storici del 1966 di Monaco e Belgium. Come vedete dagli screens di anteprima, Montecarlo e Spa non potevano essere più splendenti!
  2. This is by far the oldest track in rFactor 2, and being tailored to rFactor 1 technology, it was already showing it’s age the day rFactor 2 went public. It’s also had a bit of a torrid history, with vegetation sources lost in a hard drive crash. It wasn’t a track we were particularly keen on revisiting, but because it is such a popular venue for the historic fanbase, it really did deserve some polishing – minus those vegetation meshes of course. As usual with these v2.0 releases, we’ve cleaned it up and optimized it as much as possible, and implemented most of the latest technology. It may still be the oldest track in rFactor 2, but Belgium 1966 now wears its age rather well. Download: 306MB News post: http://rfactor.net/web/2015/10/16/updated-1966-historic-tracks-now-available/ Changelog: Bias fix for all materials/stages Various MIP texture fix to avoid flickering and glitches Various 3D models fix to limit flickering and glitches Improved outer scenery (mostly to hide bigger holes) Removed obsolete materials Removed obsolete textures Completely new set of LOD Out values to reduce models popup while driving Completely new set of Shadows Out to reduce shadows popup while driving Fixed floating trees in the distance Fixed terrain holes (tuned LOD out) in the distance (for both back and front) Fixed terrain edge textures to avoid lateral “”running”” white glitches Fixed houses albedo and saturation Fixed buildings element detaching/smoothing Fixed buildings/houses with broken AO mapping Fixed Buildings albedo maps Fixed Structure albedo Fixed Crowd albedo and saturation Fixed Vehicles albedo, saturation and reflection Fixed Animals albedo and saturation Fixed mats using a black specular color Fixed powerline intersecting houses Fixed floating Haybale Fixed chimneys flickering Fixed building cornices flickering Fixed Yellow banner flickering Fixed Blue sponsor flickering on building Fixed terrain smoothing Fixed road mesh gaps and T vertex Fixed terrain gaps Fixed overhang composition to limit flickering Fixed pit exit road Fixed Loading Screen to show correct max vehicles and new logo Fixed bridge flickering Fixed houses windows flickering Fixed doors and extrusions flickering Fixed sponsor signs flickering Fixed houses sponsor flickering Fixed BP tower flickering Fixed Shell tower flickering Fixed stickers on marshal huts flickering Fixed some overdone material speculars Fixed RaceGroove map Fixed Groove line reflectivity Fixed distance signs popups Improved glass materials Racegroove map balancing to avoid a pitch black groove line for saturated RRBINs.

  3. Abandoning our historic content? Not likely! Now all three 1966 GP tracks have been given the spit and polish they deserve… Uninstall and delete your currently installed version, then either download the tracks below, or grab them directly in the rFactor 2 launcher packages icon! Both of these tracks, set in 1966, are an insane testament to the bravery and skill of GP drivers during the 1960’s. While both tracks use public roads, they couldn’t be more different! Monaco Update Info: Monte Carlo concludes the set of historic track content updates (Italy was updated recently as well). This is the least friendly track in terms of optimization potential, due to its claustrophobic nature. On top of poor performance and massive stuttering on some systems, the old version was also plagued with countless popups in an attempt to limit the number of rendered polygons, and reduce the load on the hardware. After this optimization pass, both the popups and the stuttering are gone, while performance has remained equal or better, resulting in a much smoother and more consistent driving experience. Additionally, we’ve given each object, material and texture a quick polishing pass, and cleaned up the old art and its glitches as much as possible to bring our historic crown jewel up to modern spec.

  4. Vi segnalo la lettura di questo interessante articolo dedicato ad rFactor, ma il cui tema può essere esteso ad ogni racing sim: viene spiegato l'utilizzo del simulatore da parte dei piloti del team Strakka Performance impegnato nel campionato turismo inglese BTCC, rivelatosi non solo utilissimo ma persino fondamentale per arrivare alla vittoria. I had a great build up to Silverstone with a whole day spent on the Simulator. I have been preparing for race weekends slightly differently in 2015 and I now go to Strakka Performance regularly to use their Simulator, usually after Shakedown on a Thursday afternoon. If I am honest I was always sceptical of the benefits of Simulator’s since because it is not real and you can ‘cheat’ on a Simulator, I often thought well there isn’t much point using one then. But this year I have proved all my doubts wrong... This post has been promoted to an article

  8. Nissan Nismo GT-R GT1 v 1.6 News post (with car info): http://rfactor.net/web/2015/09/12/nissan-gt-r-gt1-v1-6-now-available/ Download (83.6MB): http://www.mediafire.com/download/awk5dpndes5g3py/ISI_Nissan_GTR_2011-v160.rfcmp Release Info: The Nissan Nismo GT-R GT1 is newly updated to v1.6! This update is primarily an update to bring the tire model (CPM – contact patch model) into this car, but there were a number of other tweaks and fixes done on what is actually quite an old base model. Improved shaders should help the car look a little more comparable with other recently updated content, but the vast majority of changes will be in the driving experience; our testers really enjoyed this one… Changelog: – Brand new tyres (CPM). – Reduced Max steering lock and moved to new steer lock method (as per other newer cars, which attempts to keep your steering ratio correct). – minor increase in CG. – Allowing a bit more freedom in anti-roll bar ranges, softened default. – Slightly less ‘randomness’ in engine lifetime. – Minor aero tweaks. – Slower real road rate. – Recalculated brake system. – Cleanup of old params and updated others to newest params based on build changes. – Reduced graphical helmet movement (when looking AT the car) – added tv style onboard cam, – Fixed the hood glitch – updated shaders – moved the dash sticker up – added new head light glow – updated body shaders – Fixed a bad shadow at the back of the side window – Newer driver model Tim Wheatley
  9. Il team ISI ha rilasciato per rFactor 2 la nuova versione aggiornata 1.62 della sua Chevrolet Corvette C6R GT2. La nuova release porta con sè varie migliorie, soprattutto per adeguare la vettura all'ultima versione del software. Il pacchetto contiene anche una skin grafica dedicata al compianto Max Angelo. Tutti quelli che stanno invece aspettando la nuovissima Stock Car Gen6 degli ISI, possono dare uno sguardo all'articolo pubblicato da SimHQ con screens inediti allegati. La vettura sarà rilasciata gratuitamente con la prossima build di rFactor 2. Gli ISI stanno inoltre lavorando ad un update per il circuito di Monza, che sarà ribattezzato "Autodromo Massimo Angiolucci" (Max Angelo). This update is mostly about bringing in the technology missing from the older version (released at around this time last year), along with a few more minor tweaks. You may now upgrade to our CPM (contact patch model) version of the Chevrolet Corvette C6.R GT2 with version 1.62 (below). You’ll also notice updates to wet cooling (which should make slicks more difficult in damp and wets stay alive longer).

  11. Hi folks, Since its initial release, the Portugal International track had been plagued with unusually bad performance with heavy stuttering. We’ve looked at every object in-between track projects to optimize the place as much as possible, and gave it a face-lift while we were at it, incorporating the latest technology. In the end, it turned into quite a big project that needed this one final push to complete our planned task list. Had we released incremental improvements, this release would easily be worthy of carrying the v3.0 label instead — it’s that much of a change compared to the other tracks we’ve updated. This one needed it. The end result is a very smooth experience compared to the earlier versions. Enjoy!

    rF2: Dallara Indycar by ISI v1.62

    You might want to consider this beauty a first true release. We got data and we've used it. It is almost a scratch built car in terms of physics. The road side has had quite a few changes, but the oval side is where you should be able to feel the biggest difference. Enjoy. Changelog: (link) Physics / Setup – Fixed fuel tank capacity. – Fuel tank position corrected (slightly lower and further forward) – Allowing both compounds during race. – Added ‘weight jacker’. Garage only at this time. – Brand new CPM enabled tyres. – Better undertray points. – Better fuel estimation. – Better ride height ranges and defaults. – Caster range now 4-10 as per real life. – Accurate suspension geometry that varies between oval / road course. – Tyre pressure ranges more realistic (as are defaults) – Updated trackconfigsbase.ini to have proper layout names for Mountain Peak and newer tracks. – Minor Turbo error correction. – Aero corrections for both speedway and road courses. (Main change is more accurate and higher downforce for speedway config) – Recalculated brake system & restricted brake bias range. – Improved unsprung masses. – Added wheelbase options, the primary purpose of which is to adjust the weight distribution. 119″ is ideal for speedways, 120″ may be ok for road courses. – Increased the weight of the car (was ~missing driver weight). – Slightly more damage sensitive. – Increased CG height according to new data. – More accurate default RC toe angles. – Increase AI’s grip a touch (road course). – Recalc’ed and more accurate anti-roll bar rates, ranges. – Fixed small error on front wing range (now goes up to 32° on RC / SC) – Slight increase in mid-range torque and also fuel consumption, and attempted improvement for fuel estimate. – Allowing stiffer springs. – Now using spool differential (locked axle). – Increase in chassis flex. – Min brake ducts now have MUCH less cooling, Max similar. – Brake Duct drag and lift reduced (so penalty is a little lower). – Steering system updated. – Opponent sound attenuation increased (so other cars are slightly less audible). – Steering ratio corrected (default, options not available yet). – Very slightly less sensitive to turbulent air, Auto-shift tweak (AI) Visuals – Fix so rotation matches in-game. – Fixed problem with Alternates showing as Primaries at race start – air intake gap fixed – hands animation fixed – new tyre damage texture – spinner scene fixed – Fixed tyre compound visibility in spinner. – Digits on the steering wheel increased to 5 – Digital Yellow message “Yel” aligned – Graphics : whole model rescale (+2%), – Front susp arms corrected. – Mirrored rear wing back logo (#27 #77) – Various texture fixes
  16. 1966 AC 427 v1.03 Now Available! Disclaimer: READ THIS (technique section). There's no rev limiter... (I told you to read it). Download here. Screenshots. Profile <-- read this We're very happy to bring you this spectacular classic car to rFactor 2 - free - as always. This one is special. We feel that you'll find this a worthy challenge and ultimately could find a level of enjoyment from this car that you may not have expected. Description The AC 427. One of the most iconic cars, and in many ways notorious. While possible to tame, it was known as the "Cobra" for a reason, it would bite back. A gentle touch was thus needed to handle this car. Having some 485hp in S/C state, with street legal tire technology meant that wheel-spin was almost always possible. In fact, it wasn't until 4th (the tallest gear) before you could, with reasonable confidence, apply full throttle. On account of the engine having incredible torque, some 650Nm of torque from 3500 RPM, the 4-speed seems more than sufficient to accelerate the car from any speed. The S/C also features stickier rear tyres than fronts to keep the car stable, but the professional driver may find mildly understeery mid-corner, of course the right pedal is easily enough to overcome this at-will. The car also has very good stopping power featuring ventilated discs at the front and solid disc rear brakes. While tricky, this can be one of the most rewarding rides around. In S/C form, this was about the fastest road car of it's time and has only since been matched by the most exotic supercars beginning in the 90's. Configurations We carry two configurations: The street tires are designed for the driving enthusiast. They should be easier for most people to drive. The competition tires are wider, a softer compound, thus have more grip, but they are a little bit edgier on the limit. The competition tires do not exhibit the understeer that is present in the street tires either. They are designed with the racing driver in-mind. The competition version of the car also has adjustable springs and dampers. This post has been promoted to an article

  18. News item: http://rfactor.net/w....for-rfactor-2/ One of the most fun and least appreciated types of racing in rFactor 2 has got to be the karts. While for some this can create a whole standalone simulation, it is merely one of many vehicle types we offer to our users as a free download. If you haven’t tried them yet, be sure to give them a try with this updated version! Download here! (Requires up-to-date build of rFactor 2). Physics (both Karts) – New tires which have enabled the contact patch model for the first time. – Added new wet weather variables for tires. – Numerous AI correlation tweaks. AI warm tires quicker, wear slower and more evenly (F/R). – Reduced inertia for wheels and engine. The wheels were set conservatively due to instability, an issue which new, more accurate tires have are the result. – Reduced axle and gearbox friction to what should be a more accurate level. – Softened undertray collision points which makes the kart more realistic and controllable over tall curbs. – Fixed geometry bug that went unnoticed that was caused by a build bug fix (which was improperly defined in the previous kart release, and has been corrected for Builds 860 and newer). – Tweak to reduce some ‘hopping’ experienced in certain extreme situations. Physics Junior Kart specific – Engine engine has more low end torque. Combined with other changes, it now accelerates a lot better from standstill. Physics KartF1 specific – Increased grip to correspond better with the class of tyre this is simulating. UI – Changed category name in-sim from ‘Kart Cup’ to ‘Karts’. – Camera offset to match steering wheel. Graphics – Updated shaders – Updated textures – Minor 3D fixes The contact patch model is still not fully complete, but at a sufficient point now. It is still lacking some lateral and longitudinal variability due to temperature / pressure and the lat/long deflections are still slightly over sensitive under extreme conditions when patch is extremely small. The vertical deflections are considered accurate. We will release more details soon. There are also some setup adjustments not yet available in the UI. An update will follow.

  19. rFactor 2 Build 946 includes a number of important changes and improvements, including a new tonemapper, CPU and multiview optimizations, gameplay fixes, UI fixes and mod tool options. While many will focus on the overwhelming change to how lighting and colors are handled with the new tonemapper (fixing a bunch of lighting issues in the process), there are also a vast amount of smaller changes that make rFactor 2 a more complete product as a whole. As always, both the demo and SDK/Dev mode have been updated to reflect the changes in the latest build. Download: http://rfactor.net/web/rf2/rf2dl/ and (for SDK/Mod Mode) - http://rfactor.net/web/rf2/devscorner/ News post: http://rfactor.net/web/2015/04/03/rf...now-available/ Update 31 (Build 946) Changelog: FEATURES: ————- – Made “Time Scale” set to “Race %” work for percentage-timed races when a track’s default duration was more than 2 hours (but left mechanical failures work the same way as they had been). – Added local content management to Launcher. – Added support for batch downloads in Launcher’s remote content tab. – Added ring stiffness multipliers to TGM files. – Added third party content publishing to Launcher. FIXES: ————- – By default, the multithreaded physics are turned off for now. Set the PLR file variable “Sim Processor Thresh” to 3 to turn on, or 255 to turn off (note that we don’t allow them to be turned on for dual cores). Please do NOT use +procmask for the purpose of disabling multithreaded physics anymore. – Number of pitstops as reported in results file and plugin will no longer count drive-thru’s nor Esc’ing from track to garage. – Made unlimited laps in qualifying truly unlimited. – Fix for aspect ratio problems in monitor. – Disabled an unnecessary message pump in the simulation thread. The latter appears to fix the CPU spikes that some were experiencing. – Added HTTP Basic Authentication to dedicated server mod downloads. – Fixed halt when returning to monitor. (Cloud maps were being reloaded because the path appeared to change in retail mode.) – Use any available car in a replay if the original can’t be found (can happen with clients viewing a server replay without having downloaded a virtual vehicle that was present). – Fixed unnecessary reloads of matchmaker list. – Lined up vehicle labels in monitor. – Made vehicle labels more legible under different conditions. – Fixed multiplayer client skin download status gizmo icons so they are again visible (when they should be). – Fixed rare problem in ded server where rfm from previous mod was used if it (rmf file) has exact same name as rfm file in current mod. – Fixed a crash that could happen while resuming a replay of a non-race session. MODDING / PUBLIC DEV: ————- – Added playerfile parameter “Disable Resume in Replay”, that when set to 1, will let you jump into realtime during a replay instead of “resuming”. Did this so that a person could record fastest paths from replay files using the AIW editor in the Mod Mode. – Added ability to look for digital flags so that that a track builder can have a mix of corner workers and digital flags around the track. (animations are: “DF_FLAGDOWN”, “DF_FLAGHELD”, “DF_FLAGWAVE”, “DF_SAFETYCAR”, “DF_VICTORY”, “DF_PRESTART”, “DF_START”) – simplified grid, pit, & garage spot marking. – Allowed AIW editor to set number of garages per pit spot for ease of editing. – Fixed Camera FOV editing. MULTIPLAYER ————- – Added new MPFile parameter “SERVER_allow_loose_content_transfer” that will disable client to client propagation of custom skins and virtual vehicles (both disabled when set to 0, only virtual vehicles disabled when set to 1, and both working when set to 2) – In the case of matching names while trying to boot someone, at least kick *someone* (current choice is client before AI). – Improved multiplayer skin transfers so there is less chance of name mix up. GRAPHICS: ————- – New tonemapper – Optimized single-pass HDR for multiview. – Adjusted some hdr/sky params to work with new tonemapper This post has been promoted to an article

    rFactor 2: Kart by ISI v1.14

    Download here! (Requires up-to-date build of rFactor 2). Physics (both Karts) – New tires which have enabled the contact patch model for the first time. – Added new wet weather variables for tires. – Numerous AI correlation tweaks. AI warm tires quicker, wear slower and more evenly (F/R). – Reduced inertia for wheels and engine. The wheels were set conservatively due to instability, an issue which new, more accurate tires have are the result. – Reduced axle and gearbox friction to what should be a more accurate level. – Softened undertray collision points which makes the kart more realistic and controllable over tall curbs. – Fixed geometry bug that went unnoticed that was caused by a build bug fix (which was improperly defined in the previous kart release, and has been corrected for Builds 860 and newer). – Tweak to reduce some ‘hopping’ experienced in certain extreme situations. Physics Junior Kart specific – Engine engine has more low end torque. Combined with other changes, it now accelerates a lot better from standstill. Physics KartF1 specific – Increased grip to correspond better with the class of tyre this is simulating. UI – Changed category name in-sim from ‘Kart Cup’ to ‘Karts’. – Camera offset to match steering wheel. Graphics – Updated shaders – Updated textures – Minor 3D fixes The contact patch model is still not fully complete, but at a sufficient point now. It is still lacking some lateral and longitudinal variability due to temperature / pressure and the lat/long deflections are still slightly over sensitive under extreme conditions when patch is extremely small. The vertical deflections are considered accurate. We will release more details soon. There are also some setup adjustments not yet available in the UI. An update will follow.

GRAPHICS: ————- – New tonemapper – Optimized single-pass HDR for multiview. – Adjusted some hdr/sky params to work with new tonemapper During the production schedule for the newly released Build 946 it became obvious that the old tonemapper wasn’t working very well on certain tracks. Both Saõ Paulo and Malaysia became the perfect place to experiment with the new tonemapper. Then, because Malaysia hadn’t been given a lot of attention in recent times, we wanted to grab this opportunity to give the place a polishing pass. It is, frankly, a superbly challenging circuit – it deserved it!
