Road Gold Package - 2020R2
This package is the 1:1 upgrade of the 2020R1 Gold Package. Content is the same based on the 2020 iRacing S2 release but the cars and tracks inside have been updated. Most of these tracks are frequently used in actual iRacing official series.
The difference compared to Premium Package is in content only. This one has 48 tracks and 34 cars while Premium Pacakge has 69 tracks and 52 cars.
The 2020R1 Gold (archive) version is still available for a limited time. Its the same content as you can see below but without the track updates, cameras shake, sound and other enhancements.
Camera shake optimization - to make it more real life like.
I optimized camera shake in ALL car cameras. I reduced the amount of shake (by default its value is 0.5) to make it more realistic. For example roll bar cameras on open wheel cars usually not shake at all in general. So I reduced the value to make it real life look like.
Camera shake is also optimized on many static cameras that are on walls or on the ground. There is still work to do here on multiple tracks...
Various camera enhancements across many tracks - all together 69 tracks are updated for the 2020R2 release. Some tracks more and some tracks less. 21 more track configurations are added in the Premium Package compared to 48 in this Gold version.
Available camera groups:
In general I use 5-6 camera groups (there can be some exceptions):
Grid view - a special camera group is added to show the grid only
Real life replica - TV style real life replica of various iconic events for the given track
Group1 (TV1) is custom TV style similar to real life replicas
Group2 (TV2) probably the most cinematic, getting the most out of depth of field and focusing to deliver good images of the car (to give some feeling of speed, to better show paints, duels close, etc)
Group 3 (TV3) set is wider zoom showing longer sections of track (useful at starts or to follow multi car actions)
Group 4 (StaticTV) - uses static aim type cameras
Group 5 (DynamicTV) - simulates low altitude chopper (check the second video)
Group 6 (Random TV) - contains best of group1-5 angles plus a few more and including onboards to give you full TV style experience
PitLane - dedicated pitlane camera group covering the whole pitlane with entry and exit
Scenic - updated scenics with more cinematics (only most popular tracks has this feature). Check this video.
Tracks not on the list are in progress or TBD someday (or by request). Bold means tracks with dedicated real life event camera sets (like Sky F1, FOX, NBCSN or SPEED, etc).

To develop the base version of a generic track today (like Charlotte Roval) takes about 10-16 hours. Enhancements and testing until the first releasable version takes about additional 14-16 hours by spectating minimum 3-4 different races and after that loading replays several times.
Most tracks in the above list have gone through 8 or more iterations. Depending on complexity a new iteration can take 4-20 hours. Earliest tracks like Spa GP has already around 30+ iterations.
It takes more and more time and effort to maintain all this. Your support helps me to continue and improve further. Thank you.
