This stuff... looks like a standard rFactor2 download announcement.

(No intention to offend, David. I'm just surprised with this release.)

Not sure what you're trying to say Cristian, whether it's good or bad... this mod will take many years to complete. Cherry is working by himself making the cars from scratch and wanted people to start enjoying his hard work as it was available. If this way of releasing stuff offends anybody, I'm very sorry... I'm sure most would be happy to get the content as it's available than have to look at a thread on a forum for many years waiting anxiously for the release. In any case, "this stuff" is free, so not sure what there is to complain about.  

What I had tried to comment is that the download reminded me of what is common practice in modern racing simulators nowadays (such as AC, rF2, iRacing and more): here is/are one/two/three cars, and enjoy the ride... which is really sad. Times where a complete package was within the PC hardcore racing simulator game (such as F1C, GTR2, Grand Prix Legends...) are now gone (it seems).

I'm not dissapointed at all by the mod itself. Just the way the 1986 mod has been published reminded me of rFactor2 and its release content procedure... and for a brief moment, I felt really disappointed and cold (because of the memories about how actual sim-racing creators release new stuff to the public; the feelings I described before have nothing to do with this mod or its modders). Smile

About 1986 mod... I'm still surprised because of this release. Is not common of you to publish anything until a complete status (v1.0) is reached for you, guys.

Kind regards,
For the 1st time in my life, I installed unfinished season mod in my game, 'cos curiosity started to get the better of me!

And my god, was it worth it!

Once finished, this mod will be the best ever! The McLaren and Ferrari are unbelieveably beautiful!

And, much to my surprise (pleasant one, too!) pretty easy to drive!

Now I've got another, unexpected problem! I just can't wait for the whole mod! Especially Benetton!

Keep it up guys, it is already fantastic!
Ideally, it is good to release all cars as they are completed. but it is better for me to release little by little because the pressure is low. The 1986 cars this time are probably influenced by the recent race sim such as AC or rf2. If it is about the same quality as 1989 mod, I can finish the car faster. but Then I will not be motivated. I know that FPS is very heavy in the quality of the car now and I have to reduce more polygons but this time I want to make the cars more real and detailed. I may be self-satisfied, but this time I would like to go with that policy.

thank you for comment and compliment. It was worthwhile to have worked hard to say so. Benetton is a source of trouble. paint is very difficul !! Actually some person ( i can't say the name still yet) are making Benetton. but I don't know the progress. if it goes well benetton may be released soon.
That is fantastic cherry!

But please, take your time, I'm not rushing you or anyone else into anything!

I just know the wait will be worth while, no matter how long!
