Yeah, FPS is always a concern but I don't think that in rFactor2 things are easier on the CPU anyway? Weather plug-in for rFactor 18590

It looks pretty cool, but rFactor 1 doesn't support wet tires so unless they managed a workaround, I think this plugin is useless. scratch

Nothing is mentioned about that, but since there is an entry for the wet weather tires in the TBC file (where you can define wet grip) and since the video shows that they obviously have managed to decrease track grip with increasing wet condition, it wouldn't surprise me if their dll reads the TBC file and increases grip when wet tires is used ...

Its easy to call a tire a wet tire, that's not what will make it better on a wet track than any other tire. Wink

No thats not possible, rFactor doesn't support wet weather so the only way to give a tire more grip on a "wet" track is to give it more overall grip, making it a faster tire on the dry as well. That means you'll go quicker on a dry track with wet tires than with dry tires.

scratch sounds wright Gui...
If I only knew what was the mod... I would try that just to be shure.. I remember trying it on a «wet track» but didn´t do the test of using the wet tires in the dry. Nevertheless I believe you Gui :hello:
