Hum beside the beta is coming sound i havent read something new.
Nice reading but in overall there is nothing we don't know already. Maybe about single thing: 12month based subscription for matchmaker, updates, news.
I have a question related to this: will it be required to get further updates? Or optional, so user will be able to download updates in other way?
I dont understand the account system with the matchmaker service.
How much will it cost and what's the service ?
Things that stood out to me...
1. The beta will probably only be available to modders
2. ISI is even smaller than I thought (10 instead of 20)
3. Somebody other than Tim wrote the server section
So you will be required to pay every 12 months in order to race online? Am I reading this right or is it a one off payment like rfactor is?
No doubt some people won't like this (well, in 1 other thread at least it's obvious), but it sounds like the requirements on the ISI side for the service will be a bit more involved due to stated improvements in mod&track matching (and mismatch reduction/elimination), so if it's going to cost them a fair bit to have it running it makes sense that those using it help pay for it. And if you don't like it... don't use it
So, If beta version will be available for no-moders I will be very good. It was to be available before Christmas.
i don't like a pay year by year, i prefer to pay all in one solution.
in that case it would be very similar to iracing
Lot of moaning for nothing.
Wait to know how much will it be. If it's 5$ every year, i dont see the trouble.
