I confess that I didn't follow AMS2 development. The first time I heard about this simulator was watching some beta videos on Youtube and I found it a very promising simulator. When version v1.0 was released, I bought in the same day. I had really enjoyed AMS1 before moving to rFactor 2 as the main simulator. After playing for a few hours, I noticed major problems. As I was not very aware of AMS2, I thought that since AMS1 used rFactor 1 engine, AMS2 would use rFactor 2 engine. However, I found out that AMS2 uses the Madness engine, the same one used in Project Cars 2 and that is a very bad thing. Madness Engine is far from being mod-friendly. You can see this from the massive lack of car mods and tracks compared to Asseto Corsa, Rfactor 1 and 2 or even AMS1. AMS2 already has a good selection of cars and tracks, but that's not enough for me. I don't want to be stuck with overpriced DLC's if I want new content while in these other simulators, you can get multiple cars or tracks for free. Another problem is the lack of realism. It's too much to ask a racing simulator to have a yellow flag indicator to indicate an incident ahead? Absolute chaos on the track but the AMS2 shows absolutely nothing. The curious thing is that in most circuits, the marshalls are animated but they do absolutely nothing besides look around. A complete waste of animation, compared to rFactor 2 where the marshalls wave the yellow flags. And lastly, no matter how much I mess with configurations, in most cars, especially the Formula cars, they shake like hell on the track. I can't do 5 laps without having a headache with all that shaking on onboard cameras. Reiza says this problem has already been fixed, but I saw no difference. Updates are not encouraging for me. It seems that Reiza is giving a lot of attention to new content and fixing small bugs while others that I consider extremely important to fix are not even in it. There has been very little progress from v1.0 release so far for me. I fully respect those who are enjoying this simulator and even those who think it's the most realistic on the market, but for me this simulator is at least 1-2 years from its true release state. I'll be playing it again in a year and see how it's going, but I have zero perspective that AMS2 will get any closer from rFactor 2 regarding physics, realism and mod-friendly.
