Workshop updated, there was a minor spelling issue

Servers are online

If you find any issues on the track, pits, garages whatever, please mention it early enough here on the forum NOT on discord.

I fear download-function from server is turned off and this with not installing it from workshop simply can't work ...

Try to copy that track into your packages folder (rfactor2\packages) and install it in the mod manager or the launcher.
It helped with Mosport. No idea why the workshop doesn't install the track automatically though.

That's the problem mate. Using the workshop would intend no manual installation afterwards, right? The content should be placed into the "1501665869"-folder instead. That's it basically.

Yes i know that's the problem and it should all be working automatically. But Mosport was the same and that's how we fixed it.

Well this time installing the track manually was not enough: I had to install the cars manually too. And now I can join the server.

I had to do this when mosport was updated too. Cars and track.


On a different note, is there any chance we can have the normal layout of the track?

@Bernd Schmidt regarding the track, turn 15 is a bit vague for the green flag. maybe t14 is better. like in Interlagos it was moved from T13 to T12 as it was the more logical corner

So here is a solution if you have the "Package Not Available" problem, at least this worked for me.

1) Follow the path marked in green on your pc (steam folder -> steamapps -> workshop -> content -> 365960)
2) Search for a folder called "1501665869", open it, go to packages and copy everything
3) Go to your rF2 folder -> Packages and paste there
4) Open rF2 Launcher and manual install everything that it is unchecked
5) Pray to god

Will have a look at this after the holidays

@Bernd Schmidt will VLMS be adopting the same start procedure that VEC is moving to? (When you cross the start line as opposed to exiting the last corner). Thanks.
Currently i would say no, but i'll think about this and tell you after the holidays as well if there will be a change

FYI this round wont have a broadcast as i'm not available for this round nor Jimmi is, thanksfully @Nick Newcombe will help out and will do the race directoring stuff for this round. You can stream your stints if you want, but please dont stay on the server as a spectator to stream the entire race, as this can lead into issues when several ppl doing it

Why do we still have to do this for VLMS? When will we be able to just download the package from the workshop as it is meant to be and just join the server? What's worse is that we have to repeat the precedure every single time the mod is updated.
