Thread: VIR Hot Air Balloon Hazards

  1. #1

    Default VIR Hot Air Balloon Hazards

    I just wanted to give everybody a heads about the hot air balloons at VIR. They cast a VERY big shadow and can be quite jarring when you aren't expecting. Here is what I am talking about:


    So the next time you get to this section of the track it will not be dark because the balloon has passed over. This will happen at different parts of the track throughout your driving.
    Not much you can do about it so just wanted to let y'all know.

    There are several real good easter eggs that the track creator added and were carried over to the rF2 version.

    This is worth it for the banter alone. Zing, zang! Pow, Pop, . And the balloons themselves are just A.I. ....
