  1. I haven't seen it mentioned yet in this thread but derail valley is a great VR train simulator, it's not perfect and can be a bit grindy to unlock everything. To play it on a Quest 2 you need the Oculus link and half decent PC. I played it on a friends HTC Vive and wished it had a better resolution. There's just something about sticking your head out the side of the cabin as you barrel through the countryside in a train.
  2. GT4s at imola actually sound fun and GT4 races are normally not as busy, hopefully that means cleaner racing from the people racing.
  3. This weeks LFM Rookie race is at Nürburgring, I think I'm going to sign up for a couple of races on Thursday night and jump on the Discord if anyone is about.
  4. I stupidly messed up my steam installs folder when upgrading my PC and still haven't redownloaded AMS2, too big to download now. I'm going to sign up for the rookies imola LFM race at 21.16 (20.16 UK time) and maybe the one after. I'll probably jump on the Discord as well for a chat
  5. @davejm thank you for all the organising you have done and with the endurance race being set up. Just a thought on it when it comes to the drawing of driver pairings, on the off chance there's a pairing such as Meers and myself we should put one of the names back into the draw as we both have experience with driver swaps and some small other details which are different in Endurance racing. I have registered for the event, will probably change the car when you add some other ones in.
  6. Turned a couple laps at watkins glen yesterday to get reacquainted with the chevy, haven't peeked at the other tracks in this car so I'm coming in very rough with no practice. Lots of T1 sends tonight but I'm really looking forward to the short races and everyone in the same car and new tracks.
  7. After a practice stint at Zolder yesterday I turned a couple of laps at Indy and Watkins Glen, no clue of the lines so Thursday will definitely be plodding at the back trying to follow others. I straight away thought Watkins was the better of the two, those elevation changes and cambered turns were great, Indianapolis seems a bit more awkward how some of the turns are set up and I'm not a fan of the braking points not being in meters. I've driven COTA in other games so hoping that experience helps in at least on of the 3 races these weeks.
  8. I've not had any time either to try them out, not sure if I will before Thursday either. All practice this week is for the RCI endurance at Zolder this weekend! Looking forward to the carnage which may be this Thursday. I think I'm going to try out the macca.

    It was one of my all time favourite games. The F2P elements weren't too bad in the early days bu it got progressively worse. If there was a Hawken style Gundam game I'd be all over it in a hearbeat.
  10. I'm going to need a lot of laps before Thursday if I have any hope of getting close to Dave's time. Seriously fast. I'm in a similar boat to you, kept invalidating laps and just in the last few minutes yesterday I got into the 2.03s. Lots of laps to do tonight.
  11. It was horrible yesterday, felt more like Florida than the Netherlands. I have the full replay saved, not sure if I will have a chance today to record it but will definitely be able to do it tomorrow if know one else has it.
  12. You were driving perfect at that point in the race. I broke at the point I would have if I was in clean air, I should've braked slightly early knowing you were ahead, it's a heavy braking point and you always close in on the car in front under braking like that. I know these things but for what every reason trying to chase you down I didn't put it into practice. Ah I didn't deserve the pass, you deserved a clean fight and you didn't hold me up, just gave me a good fight. That's why I'm racing here with you guys.
  13. Upload of the highlights. Was a bit of a messy night for me, rookie mistake and went into the back of @Meers early in the race which put us right at the back. Had decent pace in clean air pity we didn't get to fight in the pack ahead. Edit: Here is a clip of my 1st degree murder against Meers And a battle I had with one of the new guys.
  14. Ah I hope it stays mild for you, I found I was just tired a lot when I had it last week. I guess I was lucky that it was already on the mend when it came to race day.

    Ooh this actually looks interesting, I hope it also gets a PC release. I've not enjoyed any of the previous Gundam games as obsessed as I am with the animes and manga, the movement was always terrible for giant robots. Looking at some gameplay footage this looks like a step in the right direction but I still get a feeling they move too quickly like an overwatch character and not a 20 meter tall walking robot killing machine. I also hope they change the scale of the building in the footage I watched, I want to walk around a city and look out from behind apartment blocks or be able to look up at the other side of a space colony while shooting giant machine guns and beam weapons at the enemy. I always compare mecha games to a short lived FPS called Hawken they got the movement and feel down perfectly in my opinion and if there was a gundam game to match this feel I wouldn't play anything else.
  16. These are my problem corners too, for barbeque I brake just as the kerb ends on the left hand side of T4 Jukskei sweep, I turn in pretty early as well to try get on the power as early as possible but I find my line still to be inconsistent. T6 Sunset I have just accepted I feel slow, If I try to maximise running wide on the kerb it unsettles the car trying to get back over to the right for T7 clubhouse.
  17. I remembered the short exchange between @Yannik and myself before our coming together and just couldn't resist making this after seeing your vod had the discord audio as well.
  18. My crew chief did the exact same thing, told me to pay attention to track limits. And don't worry about my race just like in real life this sort of thing can happen, you gotta roll with it. Great to hear you got a fix on the way!
  19. I have to say even getting murdered I really enjoyed that race, was great to have a bigger grid. Was intense trying to close the gap to @milko, one lap I'd go faster then he'd pull the gap back in the next lap, all the while @Meers was doing the exact same behind me. After the pitstops my pace dropped off slightly and milko started to pull away. With about 15 minutes left go @Yannik had a brake pedal failure and unlucky for me was right on my tail, no hard feeling at all, shit happens. I just hope you get you pedals fixed. In my panic though to get the car going again I managed to switch my wheel into some xbox tuning mode or something which ends up dropping the FFB when I get it switched back. It is exactly like what happened to me in the 24 hour race at spa a while back. I figured out this week during practice how it happens, on the macca rim I've the xbox button as the ignition and the X button on the rim as the push to talk. Press these in combination and it goes into the xbox mode. I just forgot to rebind these buttons before the race. Without FFB I was 4 seconds on my pace and ended up losing another position in the final minutes of the race. Here's a clip of my opening lap battle with meers and the crash between myself and yannik.
  20. Hi @Amereto welcome! Looking forward to the bigger group this week even if I'm not very competitive at the moment in the Bentley.
  21. The map itself is very well modelled, if you wanted you could just freely drive around but the game is focused on doing jobs and building your company, there's quite a decent micro-management style game in it as well as you get into the guts of buying depots, trucks, trailers and hiring drivers, I believe in the setting you can turn off fines for crashing and breaking other rules. Not sure if you can turn off the fuel consumption, you could easily enough adjust your money with a mod so you would never have to worry if you just wanted to drive. Here is a video showing a log delivery job with G29 and H-shifter. And here's another one from the same guy showing one of the heavy haul jobs.
  22. Yeah that makes things a bit trickier then. Hopefully you find something, I can't imagine there not being a similar app to sim dashboard on ios.
  23. I keep my simdashboard phone attached to the rig and this phone has the bare minimum on it, I mainly use it as a timing screen but have been adding in extra information on the screen. Been meaning to do setup something similar to meers.
