Quote from anttt69 :Is AC a worthy successor to LFS or are they still struggling with frames & bugs.
Is it worth a purchase?.

lol. C'mon now.. it's the best sim out there by far, only thing lacking is the common sense and ahead of it's time MP part of LFS..
I am loving it, I don't see myself playing any other racing sim after this. LFS engine sounds are awful and graphics wise it's just meh, iRacing feels dull as hell, no driving pleasure at all, and tire noise is a joke. I don't play online so I don't care about the all time awarded and praised LFS net code. So yes, it is worth every cent.
Quote from Flotch :If I read correctly, seems that the dream pack 3 will be available en of this week or next week, including :
Brands Hatch track (laserscanned)
10 cars

some are visible in the video ... some remain unknown Wink
No price it seems up to now ...

10 cars.. where did you read that?
Quote from R3DMAN :10 cars.. where did you read that?

Now that you say this ... I probably mix with the Dream pack 1 content ... Seems it is 7 cars (each time less than the previous ... cheaper than Dream pack 2 ? ) for sure.
Seems :
Lotus 25 1963
Lotus 72D
McLaren 650 GT3
Mercedes AMG GT3
Abarth 500 Assetto Corsa
Ford Escort MK1
Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera

to be noted that on a screenshot promotting the famous R8, we can see a C7 doing the pace car (I may be wrong, but it seems), and the car next to it on the right is not looking like an R8, more a Porsche imo ... Could be a surprise Big grin .
Add this to the Audi TT Race car they are integrating ...

its not a porsche, its an r8 breaking into the corner.it has a spoiler which comes up under brakes.
ah ok, you are most probably right
Also, if you look closer you can see the two vents next to the glass in the rear window, and if you squint and turn you head 37degrees to the right you can almostmake out a whitish / silveryish blur which is the audi badge.

Also the black vent that runs across the under side the rear lights is quite visable aswell..

Smile

I wish it was a porka tho.
Everytime we had a mod-to-licenced car change the mod thread went silent before it... we haven't heard from any of the big WIP mod Porsches in a while ,the 917K, the 962... mine doesn't count Big grin

That meco dude must be kunos undercover agent. Porsches in ac would be a huge bomb though and I seriously doubt it as it would be just too expensive. That being said I'm kinda surprised kunos hasn't yet done a porsche gt3 type of car with ruf badging like iracing did.

As for that pic the car behind the c7... to me it looks like the ruf 12rtrtt. Or it could be one of the other rufs that were announced a while back. Maybe the Rt35 S that was mentioned some time ago?

Nah, as pointed out, it's clearly an R8.
I am wet, can't wait to try it out!!!
I like the Gallardo : as crap/good to drive as I was expecting Big grin . Quite bad feeling under braking and corner entry, but then the awd system is helping you to put the pedal to the floor on corner exit. Same feeling as for the R8 and GTR, this make me enjoy even more the 458 when I take it just after Big grin
I took briefly the Lotus 25 ... but GP Legends memories make me to not appreciate it so much ... do not know what I was expecting, but I did not find it to my taste ...
Brands Hatch is very nice at first sight. Quite narrow and not so easy to find the correct lines with lots of elevation changes. Smile I will have to learn !!

You should try the Ford Escort at Brands Hatch GP.

This combo is just a blast to drive. Throw the car into most of the corners, hold your wheel straight, dictate the direction with the gas pedal and open the tap with a bit of opposite lock on corner exit.
I gave it a try. I thought I could drift it like a pro, but it has ended often into the grass Big grin , probably overestimating myself Big grin . But I think it can be quite nice with some practice. Thumbs up
the track is epic, also the new escort 1600 rs is super fun to drive
They've nailed Brands Hatch. It really is good.
The AC's garage is slowly becoming Gran Turismo-like (just 100 less skylines). Seems like there could be some fun leagues, but is multiplayer still split into so many fragments, as there is cars? Also is the MP better/worth anything at all?
Quote from Kid222 :The AC's garage is slowly becoming Gran Turismo-like...

As a car enthusiast I still think GT does something better than anyone else: the ownership of the cars.

Other than that, AC is number 1 at the moment.
Quote from NitroNitrous :Other than that, AC is number 1 at the moment.

With what? Empty servers? Because I don't see much activity there at the moment.

* maybe they use a new server lobby thing because I can't see that any new content is being used and the serverlist is pretty short.
Maybe use the filters at the server list.
well, I'm not online much, but there are more and most of all a bigger variance of servers at any time now. The racecraft is worse than what I was used to back in LFS' glorious days tho
Quote from Töki (HUN) :Maybe use the filters at the server list.

I don't need that, I didnt start AC for over a year anymore.. I've build my own serverview... But no, it's just really dead there. Hatch is actually being used at some passworded servers but they are empty and passworded. In a way you where right, I forgot to include passworded servers but it didn't really help.
Nope, your server list is broken it seems, I see a lot more servers when I go online with the AC launcher.

edit: 66 non empty servers without booking and password for me, while on your list it shows only 22 with the same filters.
