rFactor 2: Nurburgring 24H Previews


One of the largest third party projects for rFactor 2 is the Nurburgring Nordschleife Conversion from rFactor. While it is a conversion initially started by pleclair, DJCruicky and Tosch have turned it into one of the most visually impressive circuits for the sim. Now, they have teamed up with Mianiak to use his Nurburgring Grand Prix Circuit conversion, to make the 24 Hour layout. They have released some new previews, and it looks amazing.

The track is really shaping up nicely, and the level of detail it has is simply staggering. Looking at the detail in the grass and the curbs makes the track feel that much more “authentic”, and not just a copy/paste conversion from rF1. I’m looking forward to seeing this track release in the near future (PLEASE!)

If screenshots weren’t enough to whet your appetite for the Green Hell, you may want to check out this video. Tosch uploded this video showing off 104 cars running on the track. Note that the video was recorded with a Nvidia GTX 670 at high settings, so your mileage may vary with high car counts. The simple fact that rFactor 2 can run over 100 cars in the sim is amazing, and hopefully as the sim progresses it can be achieved with lower hardware.
