Couldn't find a specific thread about simracing so I thought id make one.
Since owning an Alfa is the official license to beeing a TRUE "gear/petrolhead" atleast according to Jeremy, I bet almost everyone one here also like a little bit of motorsports once in a while..
Anyway everyone knows that it isnt very practical or cheap to do real life motorsporting and thats where simracing comes in..
Here is a link to some nordshleife action in a lamborghini huracan gt3,(wife messed it up in the end
), excuse the mess, we are in the middle of mooving so yeah..
Anyway it would be interesting to see what type of setups/rigs you guys and gals use and what sims you like the most.
I use a modded fanatec pwts with a srw-s1 f1 steering wheel,clubsport pedals and a ghetto triple screen, (waiting for the VR headsets to release).
My list of simracing games according to what I like the most:
1.Assetto corsa: the best allrounded sim, not the best in any specific factor but its veeery close, also updates just keeps making it better and better. It also includes some nice Alfas and laserscanned Nordschleife (nice combo)
2 Stock car extreme: the best "feeling" sim, not the best tracks or cars but it just feels right somehow, provided you dial in the forcefeedback correctly..
3 Iracing, basically for the online racing. It has by far the best online racing, very realistic in terms of people respecting each other on the track and the netcode, definetly not the most realistic "feeling" or physics wise, and it can be a bit pricey since it's subscribtion based and you have to buy additional cars and tracks that are not included in the subscribtion fee..
4 rfactor 2, very realistic in terms of "feel" and physics but I just dont end up using it that much..
5 project cars: Very nice graphics and all but for me personally the feeling of the sim has to be as realistic as possible and thats where pcars falls short, pcars is aimed a bit more towards the casual player I feel..
6 well here are the old sim breeds, if you are a sim guy like me you already know what these are, Rfactor1, simbin titles, netkar pro, gt legends etc..
I am basing all these perceptions on my real world experience, i've driven the c30 racecar 3 times for 3 hours in a row, porshce cup car once, formula 3 once and I also have a local track on which I sometimes destroy the company car (bmw 320d
so I feel my perception of theese sims have some kind of credibility to it..
If this thread gets some attention please lets not make it about need for speed and similar games. Most of these that I mention above are somehow classified as realisitc/sims and I also know that the same game engine that drives Rfactor1, Rfactor 2, stock car extreme is also used by some of the top f1 teams in their simulators, so only games/sims that are more on the realistic side of driving please
