    Props to PoRsChEnUt @ UCP for posting this.

    - Better circuits,graphic,kurbs reaction etc etc
    - night races even more spectacular thanks to a new illumination engine
    - a completally new wheel (pneumatic) physics engine, completly rewrote from sratch !
    - They invested a lot of human resource for a new netcode and it's yet improved of 20% respect GTR
    - Improved Graphic for cars and tracks respect GTL and GTR , they says it's impressive atm.
    - new tracks (28 !!!) , and all old tracks has been retouched at the point that they seems INEDHIT (some of the new tracks : Dubai,Zhunai,Valencia)
    - New damage physics, with microfiber damage also. More spectacular and realistic
    - All ufficial GT cars are available from the beginning. YOu can win also other cars
    - Game will be on the stores and not online cause they want to sell it also to all people to make also young simmers aware of this products and not only of the old gtr users.
    - New DYNAMIC WEATHER system. All reflection on the track when i rains are done in real time and when the rain finish to fall, the trajectory will be dry more and more after each laps and depending on the cars present on track and temperature. Not like in GTR where there was a fixed number of laps to clear the track/trajectory. All this will be simulated not only to a GRAPHIC LEVEL but also to a REALISTIC PHISICS LEVEL
    - Added some more Game Modality to satisfy also new Simmers but they didnt want to go against old Simmers. So they did all in 1 game. Between this new game modality there is the DRIVING SCHOOL also.
    - There won't be any 3d Audio, only stereofonic audio like it's predecessor but with better campionaments of sounds.

    I read about GTR2 being in development over at RSC forums a few months ago.


    I hope they release a demo soon. :)

    I know, I didn't want to get you p**ed off. I just wanted to tell that I already talked about it, that's all.
    It's good you made a new thread. I also wanted to make a new thread but decided to post it in the GTR thread because GTR isn't that "succesfull" as a thread.

    :)

    I'm sure there is going to be more than enough things to make up for it.

    I also read that GTR2 won't have surround (3D) sound but Simbin is working on futur "applications" to implement full 3D surround sound in, i.e. GTR3. If I find the link again, I'll post it. I don't know if it's going to be "only" 5.1 or maybe even 7.1 surround sound.

    It was among the most realistic sims on the market, it still is, but like every sim, it's still far from real. All they're doing with physics these days is creating engines that can cope with more and more calculations and variables, for example the tyre wall deformation, different tyre temperatures between the inside and the outside of each tyre ect. What GTR had was good, but you can get so many more variables in now the old engione couldn't cope.

    I do feel they certainly did not offer enough support with only a few downloads, and we all know everyone's reaction to the Oval Track downloads.

    They REALLY need to implement shaders, or better ones.

    I do think the graphics are nice enough. After all, the most important thing in sims, after the physics, is FPS.
