Hi guys, it’s time for another progress update. A lot has happened since the last one (like missing the update for June…) and I’m here to explain it all to you guys.
On a personal level, I have resumed work almost full time and because of this I have less time to work on the mods and provide support and feedback. A few of our other members are struggling with time as well, but no worries, we are still motivated and determined to get new content to our community! Here’s what’s going on behind the scenes right now.
The most requested and probably the most exciting project is bringing new prototype cars to our beloved game. We are working hard on bringing the Ginetta G60-LT-P1 to the game. Some screenshots of the latest render of the model have been shared on our Discord server and we’re progressing in a slow but steady rate. No estimated release date on this yet, but we’re getting there.
During the past week, we have started a collaboration with AC Forum SK to realize getting as many prototype models as we can in our beloved games. This gives us access to their existing models, which our 3D modeler Valjouss will adapt and improve. We will focus on getting the cars into rFactor 2, while they will create the same cars for Assetto Corsa. At the moment, we’re looking to create all current LMP1, LMP2 and LMP3 models. After the Ginetta, the first one on the list is the Toyota TS050 Hybrid (2020 model). We’re also planning to create (not specifically in this order) the Dallara P217, BR Engineering BR1, ENSO CLM P1/01, Ligier JS P217, Ligier JS P320 and the Duqueine D08.
Progressing through the creation of the LMP2 and LMP3 cars gives us an entirely new opportunity: creating a Le Mans Series-themed mod: Global Endurance Series. It will cover both the Asian and European series with LMP2, LMP3, GTE (ELMS) and GT3 (ALMS). Combined with the Global Endurance Cup 2019/20 mod, this will be the most complete endurance experience you’ve ever had in rFactor 2!
And if that’s not enough, we will adapt the Global Endurance Cup 2019/20 mod along the way by including the new cars and in September we will release a big update replacing the current Add-on teams with the full 2020 Le Mans grid.
As you can see, there’s a lot on the board in the coming months, so stay tuned!
