So im back after a long while (not that you even remember me) with my poor skills and crappy logitech MOMO and i have some questions. Firstly is the community still alive? Is there people on the servers? Secondly, what mods should i use? I see other peoples games differ a lot from the version i am using (JDM Factor starter pack 2), for example SLAPtrain has a different garage and menus. Any help is much appreciated
There is still a small community, with whom I've managed to get a year of drifting from. If you remember what it was like back in September 2014 (when your forum account was created), almost nothing has changed since then except for the player names, a lot of people don't last for more than a couple months and I can't really blame them
EDIT: As for mods:
1) scavenge the mods section here on the forums and download anything with a download link 2) Join the JDMF FB Group, more mods there 3) Download everything P-Server related (HERE) 4) Download everything from the 62's site (HERE) 5) Give everyone that leads a private FB group a blowjob
In the end your rfactor folder should be 100gb+ and you'll still only see about half of the cars. Welcome back
Thanks for the info. What mods JDMFactor Starter pack actually contain, other than metric sh*t ton of tracks (half of them crash the game ) and some cars? And what exactly are SP mod, REALFactor (http://jdmfactor.boards.net/thread/187/mod-realfactor-physics-graphics-update), PD 2.3 and all these other packs and things.
I can find the FB site (https://www.facebook.com/JdmFactor/timeline) but is there a group too? Link? (Also i REALLY need to change my profile pic, current one is about 3 years old )
Also is there a specific guideline when im good enough to join a server (probably not yet though)?
The JDMF Starter Pack is basically useless at this point, it's just contains all of the tracks that are on the 2 track lists here on the forum (altho yeah, the ones in the starter pack don't work), and PD 2.31 with a couple extra's. You're better off just downloading PD 2.31 from the P-Server blog and starting from there.
SP Mod is an absolute necessity, it's the second most popular drift mod apart from PD, contains 15 cars and imo they handle way better. REALFactor...not too sure but iirc it's mostly outdated and not necessary.
The FB group is closed & requires applications here on the forum, although it's a bit of a joke. If you can't get in don't worry, it's not necessary.
There is no guideline, just join when you think your ready. The majority of players aren't great drivers, so feel free to improve yourself online instead of getting lonely in solo
