I don't care how good it is for $12 a mo. That's insane.

If Forza and GT5 can be done for $50, then there's no reason a PC game can't do it for the same.

You need Realism Mod 2.0. IMO, it does a better job of preventing the rear end from sliding. I've also noticed that if you play in cockpit view it's harder to notice. I also agree Shift 2 is worse(out of the box), until you mod it.....Also, if you like racing games a lot, GET A DARN WHEEL.

I had not heard about this mod... I just installed it and it causes my game to crash at start of some races. Am I missing something else I needed to install?

I live in Argentina, which means that taxes for electronic stuff are super expensive (2x, between customs, shops, shipping, etc). So $200 turns $400, which is roughly $2800 argentinians. To give you a picture, that's almost half a regular (monthly) salary here. All I'm saying is it's very expensive right now, maybe in a year or two this whole thing will change.

Anyway, I do have an old ps2 wheel, but I don't think it's worth it. It doesn't even have a trigger as pedal. Pedals are like buttons, full throttle or full brake, that's it biggrin.gif

I'll try that realism mod however, thanks for the recommendation.

I haven't played Shift in ages, but here are some old screens of when I did, with tons of mods and a few of my own skins -


CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

It really isn't that bad once it's modded. Can't remember the handling mod I was using, but I know there was one that had updates until not too long ago. I was using over 100+ mods, adding over 100 cars, tons of liveries, etc.

I have just started trying this game on the free 3 month sub from cadillac ( beware a double edge sword as new memberships are currently half price ) I like the game a lot, the community is great, the racing sensible and varied and there is a clear path to follow if a particular series appeals. The only thing putting me off renewing my subscription right now is the cost. This product is very cleverly marketed as a real simulator, this may have some validity but when said and done it is a game and should be considered as such, comparing it with the price of real track time and tires on track days does not cut it for me. The cost of content if you wished to own most all tracks and cars is simply extortionate and there is quite a lot of content above what comes with the subscription fee which is already expensive at $99 per year. I am not sure if i will continue past the 3mth subscription simply due to the price. The game is excellent other than this.

Racing sims on PC are an extremely niche market. If iRacing had millions of players it'd be a lot cheaper, but it doesn't and never will.

The cost of entry and competition put people off. Cost of entry is obvious. Not only does one need a good PC, a wheel and pedal set and some suitable surface to mount a wheel on are also needed. The level of competition causes people to quit as well. This isn't AI racing where a lot of gamers easily win every time.

iRacing just caters to a slightly different crowd; those who treat sim racing as a hobby rather than just another game. For a hobby, sim racing is cheap.

This i agree with 100%. In my so far limited experience in the game I can not find fault with it. Like i said the only thing at the moment stopping me going all in is the initial cost of all the content. I may analyse it further and decide to follow a particular series route which will be much more cost effective and then build as i go. Its quite funny having played 700 hours of bf3 multiplayer and countless hours on the forums and the biggest complaint outside game mechanics was the premium/dlc price which is positively bargain bucket compared to iracer. The contrast of the consumer mentality to the same issue, price, is startling.
