Image Space incorporated released a new Development video showing us the WIP of the Mountain Peak v0.85 Kart track for rFactor 2. In this video we can watch a five lap Kart race recorded using a Track IR 5. The ISI Mountain Peak track will feature 1.5-mile quad oval complete with road-course and two karting tracks.
No official release date is known, but the ISI staff hinted that it would be ready for release soon.
Empty Box takes the unique chance to compare the same mod in both modding-friendly simulations as well, trying to figure out which sim handles the add-on content better.
The mod offers a unique opportunity to compare both simulations that are heavily focused on modding, especially because both titles come with the same Silverstone track as stock content, allowing a proper and fair comparison.
The Virtua_LM Junior Team has released a new video trailer of their upcoming GTPC mod for rFactor.
The trailer highlights the many Porsche cars within the mod, the Stuttgart-based manufacturer held a major stronghold on endurance racing in the 80s and as such, a large part of the mod’s car list consists of Porsches.
Prototype C and will bring a massive amount of cars from one of endurance racing’s finest decades to rFactor, centering around the 1983 Le Mans 24 Hours. The mod includes both prototypes and GT cars and will come with over 500 liveries, including many rare cars of this spectacular era.
While rFactor might not be the most recent sim racing title anymore, this massive and carefully-crafted mod will be a perfect reason to give it another go!
Both rFactor 2 and Kunos Simulazioni put a big emphasis on the modding community with both titles providing tools for content creators. So which environment makes custom-made community content shine the most?
The comparison below, put together by FTRRacingTv, gives us a fair and balanced look at both games, featuring the exact same mod in both titles as we get to see UnitedRacingDesign’s Endurance Racing X mod in action.
Both games are using the same track that is part of their respective stock content as Silverstone is available in both titles, with Kunos’ version having the added benefit of being laser-scanned.
Image Space Incorporated has revealed another new track coming to their rFactor 2 simulation: Tiger Moth Aerodrome.
Looking at the preview below, it is fair to assume that this track will (more or less) be based on the Dunsfold Aerodrome, better known as the Top Gear Test Track.
As many of you remember, tuttle worked on (and released) a rFactor 2 version of Dunsfold shortly before joining ISI as one of their track makers and it seems like he may continue the development under a slightly different name.
Mario Morais has released a new preview video of his ambitious Laguna Seca track project for rFactor 2.
The video shows a lap around the Californian track using the Renault Megane, showing the base track layout that has been put together by using LiDAR laser-scan data.
The 2.2 mile track is located in western California and is one of North America’s most prestigious road courses. The circuit hosts an annual Moto GP round as well as the Tudor Sports Car Championship, highlight of the layout is the stunning corkscrew corner.
Turn 10 recently released their laser-scanned version of the Nürburgring Nordschleife for Forza Motorsport 5, making the Xbox One title the first game to offer a laser-scanned version of the green hell.
Below is an interesting comparison, showing the 1967 Brabham Formula One car on the ring in both Forza Motorsport 5 as well as rFactor 2.
While the comparison is interesting to check out, it should be kept in mind that the rFactor 2 version is not just not-laser scanned but also an impressive one-man track modding project.
