Help. Why do the SimDream 1984 cars show up very dark in the previews?? In game they are fine
They look like they have rubbish shader settings, probably KS ambient is set too low, but KS diffuse is set alright. What that means is that they will look okay under light, i.e. in game but not in certain previews. You can download these presets to fix the basic properties (albeit I can say from experience that they almost certainly need texture improvements), just drop them under Documents>Assetto Corsa>Editor>Materials Library


You can then apply them to different materials in the CM showroom.

It's not really a list of people he doesn't like or has personal grudges. Now of course you don't have to stick with the good mods from his list but it does help for a complete beginner who I'm sure would be overwhelmed with the number of mods available in AC. It helps complete beginners to stay away from Sim Dream/RTM stuff and other paid not for worth stuff and set a standard that they may or may not want to retain.

Many mods are made with less than ideal textures, bloated KN5 files, and very high poly counts, this list helps to sort those out and keep it organized. Now obviously no one can stop you from using any of the bad mods and you're free to do so as many of us do, but this list helps one to get to know this sim better and refines their eyes to an extent.
The obvious problem with that list is that he groups all "bad mods" the same, no matter what they did "wrong".
Seeing Easy added lods to an A3DR mod, A3DR should definitely be listed in "bad mods", right? Should we let rusty know?
That question alone is the reason that list should disappear forever.

If I remember correctly, the “wrong” is that the modder didn’t follow the Kunos pipeline/process for content creation. But if you’ve been playing AC for some time, you should be able to make your own judgement of what you like. So just ignore the list. I find assettoland to be a more helpful resource.

Edit: still working out the kinks of this new website. The Reply button didn’t capture the quote from @gergerger .

But that's not how it works? If Easy decides to add LODs that aren't made using the kunos pipeline instructions that's on him, not on AD3r, especially when AD3r most likely did not even ask Easy to make the LODs. I don't even know how you managed to come up with that question.

Oh Nice, I'm on the bad list, please don't download anything I make guys.

Using my Real name and not my online alias aswell, cool!
Your real name is your racedepartment name? I'm assuming you're the 'Tyrone' on his list.

This is not the best for our ears 😇.
However I think that they are very interesting cars. May in the future we ll have some good mods for AC:gtpflag:

Regarding honda s800, afaik a3dr already included lod B,C in previous update.

The only problem I have with some of your tracks is that I can forget I'm using them sometimes and when I go into a replay without cameras I can accidentally crash the game.

Other than that I think you make some of the best fictional tracks for the game.

I manually edited the "KS Ambient" to 0.4
They look so much better now as far as some SimDream mods go

Just more of a general PSA than anything, but today might be the best day ever in AC modding history. The Plymouth Prowler, AKA the greatest car ever made, is now available for AC by PedroBLR. Not sure where it's ripped from but the model is pretty decent. So a good addition to your AI traffic or you can even drive it in a race like I did if you're insane enough.

COMING SOON - TRACK UPDATE by CrisT86

Paul Ricard 2021 & Paul Ricard 2019 (v0.9.7 updated)


Sorry guys if i was away in the last days, but i got my first covid vaccine dose and i got fever for 2-3 days and a bit of pain basically everywhere, hair includeed 😂😅

New EXT_CONFIG for Paul Ricard which works on the version by @marc_13000 @Blackcelica also on the 2019 version (which was an update of the v0.9.7 version available on RD). They will be 2 different ext_config because, even the tracks are the same, both requires small different fixes.

Might be worth mentioning that you compressed the hell out of the original textures which has reduced the file size, but has made the cockpit a dark and muddy 8-bit place. The external livery is now a bit of a pixellated mush too.
Also... the original car already had three LODs..?
Your car also overwrites Hipole's original. It takes seconds to clone a car and give it a unique identity (copy car folder... rename folder to your own choice... open car in CM... copy sound from original car.... restart CM... THAT'S IT) so there's absolutely no excuse to effectively delete the original (and sometimes much better) car and force your own updates to overwrite it.

"This is more akin to a compiled peer-review of their work based on large amounts of feedback from the community and my own experiences."

Ok, let's test that theory with Tyrone. His last 10 mods all have an average higher than 4 stars on RD.

What about RMI_Wood? 15 AC tracks all have higher than 4.

Also, what's the need for the bad list? Just have a good list. So new users get information on "good" modders.

Instead of removing bad modders section, they could just put scammers in it. Makes much more sense.

too late for me :( only noticed the texture issues AFTER i updated. Anyone got the link back to the original please, or if no longer around can you hit the undo button a few times please Easy.

If anyone is going to work on this car (assuming the author has given permission or at least knows about it), it needs a remesh, its quite low poly in many places, I realise thats harder work than slapping in some lines in a config, but, that would be a nice update.

Erik Wispelwey, on Facebook, is making an LS-swap, 5-speed manual version, with a few other adjustments to the model, like different wheels and tires, and smaller front bumpers. Apparently he started with the same 3D model.


A real LS-swapped, 5-speed manual Prowler with front bumpers removed. I do like the color scheme.
