    Try violating the rules harder. ;)
    It depends, but in general they should work. Got a specific example in mind?

    I would definitely recommend Raceroom Raceway as going off track results every time in a Black/White flag. Cut should be set to StopnGo, as it's the strictest one of the R3E ones (You get penalised after 5 harsh violations or so)

    Now when seeing how ACC runs, or not runs in VR, I actually hope they stick with the graphics engine they have!

    Sticking to technology that is more than 10 years old is not acceptable either.

    Just an example of what people can do with an old graphics engine.
    The graphics engine of this simulation is 20 years old...

    Is that a B-Tech AMS?

    No from me to a cool down lap and to anything else that delays the next race on MP mode. Loading times are already long enough as it is.

    Oh man, now I feel old. Is it really that long ago already that I found Falcon 4.0, the RP 1-5 patch series, learned the basics of maintaining the Windows 98 PC in a fit state and finbetuning options as if my life depended on it, and for long times had some of the most intense and immersive simulation experiences in my gaming career? "Falcon", the hairs in my necks still raise by the mere sound of the word. Still so many things in it that it does so much better than DCS: the environment: the campaign, the monumental immersion: second to none, many tried, all failed.

    Steel Beasts Pro. PMDG's range of Boeings and study sims for FSX. Hundreds and hundreds of manual pages and checklists printed out. It were crazy times. It were good times!

    I played Flight Simulator 2.0 by Sublogic and Falcon by Spectrum Holobyte already on Commodore Amiga.

    Cool down lap could also be useful in SP ;)

    If it works better I see no point in changing, you don't want to change just for the changing..
    But if they do change, I really hope it will run smooth on both monitors and HMD's!

    It doesn't work better: no dynamic light, no modern shading for weather fx, CPU bound etc. Those limitations exist in this game since it was released and fundamentally nothing has changed.

    All other aspects of the game have improved over the years, except for this, here it's stuck. So it's the technology stack that holds them back.

    Going forward is not a binary choice of using ue4 exactly like acc did and sticking to what they have.

    Nobody has touched on this, but I think moving the backend into the cloud is also a great step, this way the server app can scale automatically based on the load (current users) and there is a potential to make the website even more responsive. (It would have been great if it happened earlier, but at least it will happen at some point.:))

    Maybe I am suffering from Monday morning syndrome and the fact that I still had no coffee today - but what was it again, this "AWS"?

    But now I expect a long post from you explaining us why we should avoid it at all costs.:)
