    Even modders can't provide that due to cease and desist orders.

    Same here.
    I want loads of good quality content from the devs, and I'm happy to pay for that!
    I don't want to feel the need to mod a game the first thing I do to make it "good"!..

    They should allow custom skins.

    Not disagreeing, just saying that's one of the arguments I've read against the sim.

    ...and that's fair enough. PC racing has been all about mods for a long time so R3E's approach is an unwelcome cultural shift for some. Sims like rF2 or AC rely on mods to bolster the stock content, which in my opinion I find a little uninteresting in both cases.

    I'm in 100 percent agreement with you. I'm quite happy to purchase the tracks and content. I've had more fun running DTM, ADAC, WTCC, and custom seasons with R3E than in any other sim.

    People wanting to:
    - Race their own skins in their league
    - Add their own car to a grid
    - Run with specific skins that they've purchased instead of others (remove fictional ones, for example)
    - Fill the gaps that S3 can't license
    - Tweak the AI abilities to preferred values

    To name but a few. Things that personalise the product, basically.

    Perfectly agree with you too...but we must admit that sometimes mods are quite required to play content we love and developers can't produce due to time/licensing/cost etc etc...for example the NASCAR series for race 07...or even better tracks from btcc or the Italian supertouring...blasting my Alfa 155 through the tight corners of enna pergusa is not a thing you can find elsewhere if not on a mod unfortunately...

    As long as the mods are freeware there doesn't seem to be a problem. That's why there are Porsche mods for rfactor and AC for example.

    Not 100% accurate - they can shut down anything using their IP technically, although fortunately it's quite rare. If you look up Enduracers' 'Flat 6' mod though, there have been occasions. I very much like the 'officially supported' approach Reiza is taking with the OZV8 semi-mod.

    Agree - games that i really enjoy I tend to avoid the mods. I want to spend my time playing, not figuring out why the latest update broke my heavily modified game

    Yeah right. Reason that kinda annoys me with Assetto Corsa, get a new mod, devs release update, now mod broken. Then you gotta wait for the modder to fix it. It be comes that or the game feels broken after an update because of a mod thats installed.

    What's annoying about it? Cars were made to be driven without sound? :p

    ....and when I look at Assetto Corsa's modding scene (high on content, low on quality), I'm not sure R3E is missing much.

    Yeah, there aren't many good mods yet, but I think both games are great.

    And for not to mention you have to pay for some ac mods (like the dtm one)

    It is not hard to fix though, at least for the sound mods.

    Still, I think a constant content from the developers is fine from me even modding isnt in the game. S3S does constantly add new content to the game.

    I just want the content to be cheaper. More packs, more sales or more experience is fine with me.
