We're racing rFactor on weekends as a way to bring everybody together for some vidya, consult the GoogleDoc for info about start times, mods, and tracks we're using:
/ovg/ Faction poll for The Crew
>get pole, gt 2 second gap almost immediately
>anyway, win race, no incidents
>+.18 safety rating
>guy in 4th, 1 incident
>guy in 8th, a lap down, 1 incident
i don't understand this shit.
They didn't have the licences for the cars so they changed one letter for each car manufacturer
Looks like The Crew faction will be Crocodiles, with the final vote count being 22 for Crocs, 20 for Bears. Paltala (or whoever makes the spreadsheet), please confirm.
The A2 is in The Netherlands aswell.
>Not picking Schnelle Olga
Any Crew players know how to get rid of faggots that somehow end up on your crew? Somehow I got this guy on my crew and I don't know how to remove him (and I've looked everywhere).
Free roaming in venice was pretty cool.

FUCK THIS SHIT.
I rather farm the drive from point A to B missions than risking to waste 1 hour for abolutely nothing.

Time to upgrade maybe.
>trying to figure out if I can use the original Shift template for the rFactor version of this car
>has to be scaled to 2048x2940
O-okay that's a totally normal resolution
Actually the template is at 4096x5880
i'm racing rookie races, with a couple B class drivers, who are a second slower than me.
>also another lights to flag no incident race
>mfw at 2.99 now
Sub-1000 iRating people are usually too shit to get to the upper licenses because if you finish like half the race you'll finish better than that but there are some serious slow shits who don't hit too much stuff and the licenses are super lax (like one wreck a race in the shorter races is the average for an A)
>wrecking GEETEARUs with this
nice. I'll concede the high-end TIs are generally better than the high-end Casios, and have more of a following so more user-generated content. But the latest Casio (fx-CG20) looks pretty nice.
Here are mine. I don't like the two BA II Pluses much but it was either those or the HP 12C and I'm too pleb for RPN (KURWA). The Algebra FX is pretty good but not god-tier, I only really got it because it was cheap.
Not pictured: my trusty CFX-9800G. Pretty much the predecessor of Lancer's >>11602398 except it's got a dodgy mid-90s design complete with fake rivets. Same comedy 3-colour screen though. I must have dropped that thing hundreds of times but it still helped me BTFO many a maths exam in its day.
We sharin' cars?

go eat a burger
i think ithey handle ok for an arcade game
>unless Porschebro wants to do more GT2 models (pls do GT3 models next time I love you bb)
I'm happy to do more, just let me know which ones you want.
>If he wants to keep doing Forza rips FM4 has the Corvette, the 430, and 2 Panoz.
I'll probably do the 430 next unless anyone has a better idea.
>But then it becomes the muh illegal bootleg mods series too.
Is this a problem? It sure as hell is better than waiting months for someone to model one when we can just use one that already exists.
>Looks real silly having a "GT3" series with half GT2 cars
Autist alert. Seriously though it's not really an issue, there are only slight model variations. The cars themselves were in GT3, maybe with slightly different aero but it's not like I'm completely making things up.
>and all of those won't be done in the next few weeks.
Is that a challenge? The Gallardo only took a couple of days. It doesn't take long once you have everything sorted and are used to the process.
The physics for the most part are definitely arcadey, but the cars do have a bit more weight to them than other arcade titles. I'd say it's a bit weightier than your average NFS.
Start going through the main missions. As you level she'll start telling you about new factions with each region she sends you to (example, when you're told to head to Miami, you unlock Crocodiles). To manually switch, open the dashboard in Map view, and scroll to the Factions tab. At the bottom it'll say Faction Change. Since the game hasn't been out for 7 days it'll likely tell you that you've already chosen a faction, therefore can't switch. Only alternative to that at the moment is progressing through the missions, which allows you to change without the 7-Day penalty.
Also, post Miura's
>not having a mid mounted spoiler
way heavier, way more sim than hot pursuit 3
you can actually "feel" the weight of each vehicle and you never have any "get out of jail free" moments. everything you do while driving has its consequences. if you make a mistake, you have to live with it, there's no boosting out of it or anything
Those are all GT2s, Forza has a ton of ALMS GT cars and jack squat for GT3s really (literally just the older model versions of the cars AC already has)
The 458 race car in FM4 is the exact same year and spec as the one in AC.
damn that night was fun! thanks afinegentleman for hosting the server and uploading the pack. we should do this again whenever you guys are on

Why would you post something like that here? Did you even think about the kids? THINK OF THE CHILDREN MY GOD

Does anyone else use a perf spec 458 speciale? I think the mechanics on it are fucked, the handling is really skittish and using nos at any speed means the back wheels instantly lose traction
also it has virtually no power below around 5k RPM despite having about 600+ hp
I only had one Casio and I didn't care for it. Everyone I knows uses a TI of some sort.
>Writing on calculators
Two can play this game.
Should I get the crew? I don't mind ubi$oft and I like the idea of a relatively popular mmo where I can rice and rally and race cars.
Is it worth the money? Or should I wait for winter sale?
I love my circuit hot rod, shame the interior view is damn near unusable

Based. The break this Saturday means I can work on my final pages of my term papers, go through the week doing final exams and then have about 5 hours to get ready for the race.
Just BoP the Kunos one I guess, no point having two models of the same car.
I'll start on the 430 even though 'technically' it is a GT2 model.
>Jaguar XKR GT
>Panoz Esperante GTLM
I might do those and make them GT3 just to annoy you :^)
From Shift 2 I can also try
I'm not sure about Shift conversions but if I can get them to work that should make a pretty nice GT3 field.
Sort of like the original Horizon, with less assists.
Also, there are a few variations in the way the vehicles upgrade into different specs. A Dirt spec Mustang gets an AWD conversion with heavy rear bias, and the '67 Challenger gets an open diff. The Dirt R34 runs closer to 50-50 center diff and can pull off the most hektik full throttle boosting skids.
I should get the Focus!
