The RMT Modding Team has released a new status update not the state of affairs regarding their World Super GT 2 mod.
If you are a regular VirtualR reader, there’s no way you haven’t heard about this project yet as WSGT 2′s development has been going on for more than six years. Unfortunately, the team seems to be at somewhat of a crossroads now as you can read in the statement below:
It has been a long time since we posted anything regarding our WSGT2 mod for… hmm, not sure. Back in 2008 we decided to create a follow up of our WSGT mod for GTR2. The WSGT2 was supposed to be released for ISI’s rFactor 1. Whilst being only a four member team we did set high standards. When in 2009 Image Space Incorporated introduced the upcoming rFactor 2, we decided to halt all work and wait for the rF2 Beta to arrive. This took a little longer than expected.
By the time the rF2 Beta was available, our personal lives had changed dramatically. To have a peek at rFactor 2 modding, we decided to take our old ( build in 2009) RMT Megane Trophy V6 model in-game and tried to get an idea of rFactor 2′s strengths and flaws. To be honest we where not that motivated or exited, but gave it a shot. During the development of the WSGT2 material, we ended up with gigabytes of material. We kept on testing the mod in rFactor 1, and while waiting for rFactor 2 the content grew.
In a perfect world, we would like to release part of the WSGT 2 material for rF2 and Assetto Corsa. That said, there is no such thing as a perfect world, meaning we are still debating what we will or can do.
Today we reached a point where we are discussing what the next step will be. For the moment we have a staggering amount of material, but have to be honest to admit that with the four of us and the time schedules we are running, it will be virtually impossible to release the full WSGT2 mod as planned. Even a few cars might become a problem with the current workload and free time. As friends, and as a Team we are now trying to come up with a few solutions. One of those solutions would be bringing more members into RMT. Admittedly we have tried that in the past, and it became clear that this is not as easy as it might sound. Its very hard to find passionate and committed modding enthusiasts.
If someone out there would hear the calling, and would like to join our little team, feel free to contact us. The attached gallery (about 600 screens) and video’s show you a small amount of material we have created in the past few years. While some material is a good 5 years old, we feel it still comply’s to todays standards. (Keep in mind that all videos are recorded in rFactor 1)
It would be a shame to let it all go to waste. So we are trying our best to come up with a solution that enables us to finish what we started. Thanks for listening.
