And here I belived we had a interesting discussion about whether or not Nordscheilfe (or how you spelled it) should be priortized to get into the game, but instead the whole forum whent full retard

Blueflame, please, can't you just be nice for a change? Do you need to troll so much all the time and make the other people here go batshit?
Yeah and please go outside and get a life. Keeping in mind how much time of the day you spend writing on this forum makes me impossible to believe that you have an interesting life out there
Was that directed to me?
F40, E30 M3 Group A, 599XX, Z4 GT3, and Monza.

Quote from BlueFlame :
That's teh beauty of the Nordschleife. You do know the track, when on track you know whats coming next, but you couldn't possibly remember all 140~ corners by memory in the correct order. It's just not really possible for the human brain to do it.

I feel ashamed from replying to this, but I took this as a challenge.
I just did a mental lap on the Nordschleife and I'm 100% sure I didn't miss a corner.
Of course I can't prove it to you, but I just find it baffling someone would make such a statement.


BTW on the actual topic, I really like Nordschleife and I think it would make for epic races. it's just much more exiting to drive than most racetracks. I don't really see the logic behind some people who say it would make for a lonely race.
For example 30 minute race would equal different amount of laps on Nords than it would in a "modern" racetrack. But the distance and race time is still more or less the same. If there are other drivers on the same skill level, driving a similar car than you, it's going to be an epic battle. No matter what kind of track you are driving.

What do you mean ""... more like ""

Going to be a fun weekend!
Quote from Ball Bearing Turbo :I've learned a lot today!

- "Difficult" = "Impossible"

- Algebra is for morons (and it's also wrong anyway)

- It's both impossible and difficult to memorize race tracks

I feel enlightened.

What about "Calgary is cold"?

I wish AC would scan Knockhill, i'd even contribute a mars bar to the cost of the scanning.
Well I've had a good learning day today. My Maths teacher taught me 1850s maths which is now invalid, he's a conspiracy theorist, I can read equations any way I want because I'm a free thinker, and that where x = 90, 2x = 290. I also couldn't draw a map of a track freehand in paint from memory without getting it completely wrong, I don't know the Nurburgring from driving thousands of sim laps and couldn't get the corners in the right order from pictures, difficult means impossible, and Jackie Stewart was a dirty no good liar.

Edit: Oops BBT beat me to it.

That's one hell of a Christmas present
Quote from dawesdust_12 :What about "Calgary is cold"?

I didn't learn that today. Two weeks ago primarily. The blizzard was a bit of an issue.

Actually, it's quite nice these days, at least it's only inconsistently cold. +24C swing in 24 hours last week.

Quote from DeKo :


Oh no. Now he's going to look at that and use it as "evidence" because it's not pixel for pixel accurate, not to mention you didn't write the names!

No kidding.

Which beast are you planning to tame first?

I can't wait to fire up that F40.

Same here

F40 is the car I've been looking forward to most along with the Lotus 98T
Quote from BlueFlame :Well to an extent that's true but if you honestly picture the nordschleife and do a lap in your head I garentee you'll miss a few corners out.

That's teh beauty of the Nordschleife. You do know the track, when on track you know whats coming next, but you couldn't possibly remember all 140~ corners by memory in the correct order. It's just not really possible for the human brain to do it.

I memorize my way to school and there are more than 140 turns.
"That may be true, but if you were shown pictures of your route to school.... you would not be able to put them in order." :rolleyes:

I always get confused driving to work. It's too many corners to remember.
Quote from Bmxtwins :I memorize my way to school and there are more than 140 turns.

For reference my drive to work this morning was 80 corners, across ~23 miles of Suffolk's finest B-Roads. Same again in reverse (but surface is different on the other side of the road, lines are different etc). I certainly now how to get work and could identify each corner in order... it's not a hard task.
I had a ten lap race on Nordschleife in GT5 a while back that stands out as the single greatest simracing event of my life. Me and a friend drove in the early morning going REALLY hard all ten laps. That's almost a GP distance and took longer since we were in Mitsu Evo X cars. We were door to door for a very large portion of that race, and swapped positions so many times. We finished within a second of each other, and both of us went very close to 100% effort throughout.

That was truly satisfying, and a lap of the real thing feels kinda the same in many ways. Concentration is so high, g-forces and adrenaline make for a thoroughly unique experience. No other track I've driven require the same level of concentration and effort to be really fast on, and there is no way to have as intimate knowledge of every piece of the tarmac that you can on other, shorter tracks.
Fake
What :/ I hope your trying to be funny...
Quote from akiskev :You 've sped the video up. You should be ashamed of yourself!

With posts of this quality it's a good thing you've only posted 8 times in 7 years.
Really looking forward to that 599XX.
M3 Gr.A & Trento, but still, MP > more content.
Quote from JazzOn : Imo, tracks like the Nordschleife and Bathurst are a no-brainer

I'm glad someone mentioned Bathurst.
Quote from NotAnIllusion :M3 Gr.A & Trento, but still, MP > more content.

Agreed, but with the sim community not being very forgiving they only have one chance to get it right IMO.

If they have major problems with the net code on first release of MP then some will still be slagging it off years later regardless of later fixes.

As much as I want MP as soon as possible I want them also to get it as right as possible first time.
