I had to laugh.. aspec7878 just said he would help the guy making the Nords conversion. This is the guy who has converted loads of peoples tracks with getting permission and all of them are completely half arsed unfinished rubbish.
The BBC produce a shitton of programmes. Yes, you're being forced to fund it, but that doesn't mean you're forced to watch everything on it If you dont like a program then the advice was absolutely right...turn over.
The devs would agree with you. They simply weren't there in the first version, but there was such an outcry from people who didn't like the 'pure' approach to FFB that they were compelled to add those "enhancements".
Turn them off and enjoy purely physics based FFB. Simples.
