rFactor 2 Q3 Release
The Q3 release was announced a couple of week ago by Studio397, and it has been released today! The release includes a new build bringing many new updates including Real Road 2.0 which sounds like a huge improvement and will add to the whole driving experience.
Along with the physics updates 2 brand new BTCC have been included, the Hyundai i30 Fastback and Ford Focus ST.
We will of course add these two new British Touring Cars to our mod updating the current Napa Racing team and adding Apec Racing, featuring Ollie Jackson and Sam Osbourne. This will be announced first on our Instagram account, so keep your eye peeled!
BTCC MOD for rFator 2 - BMW 125i issue
Since the release of our mod, we have noticed that the BMW 125i is being unpacked and removed when launching rFactor 2. The BMW 125i car is important to the mod as it includes the .rcd talent file. Our mod will work without the BMW, but you will not get the best experience. We do have a workaround for this, and to ensure the BMW is not deleted upon launch we advise that you change the version number inside the BMW main car folder. We will post detailed instructions very soon.
NEW BTCC MOD IS HERE !!
Head over to the downloads section to download our mod. This is NOT an official mod. We have put cars together from different BTCC classes to bring a fun championship featuring new teams currently competing in the 2022 British Touring Car Championship.
LATEST ON THE NEW BTCC MOD...
After out announcement of a new BTCC we are working on, I am pleased to bring you an update. This mod is not official. This mod is a collaboration of other mods that we have tweaked, and made some changes to that will hopefully bring you an extremely playable, fun BTCC season.
We have added some of the 2022 BTCC teams and drivers, and we have also included some fantasy teams like Estrella Motorsport and Mercedes AMG. Along with these teams we have added current BTCC drivers like Rick Parfitt, Ricky Collard and also a couple of surprises. A talent file has is also currently in the works, and after initial testing is seems to working well.
We want you all to enjoy this, but remember it is NOT a 2022 BTCC mod, it is a mixture of teams & drivers from other mods (NGTC) that have made this possible and we hope they approve. We have spent many hours creating new liveries including the 2022 BMW (Turkington/Jelley), 2022 Bristol Street Motors (Ingram/Chilton) and 2022 Halfords with Cataclean (Shedden/Rowbottom). We have also included thumbnails for ALL teams, which we think is a nice touch.
We hope to be releasing this very soon so check back for updates. In the meantime here are some screenshots.
