One of the banes with rFactor 2 has been many complaints about the UI. Well, stand by as a new overhaul is coming on Thursday 27th January.
In the latest release of information by Paul Jeffrey is a great announcement that rFactor 2 is finally getting an overhaul of its UI. Many complaints had been circulating with the current UI system in place, well, like all good consumer areas, they have listened and decided to overhaul the UI.
Many people can rest assured that continuous work is going on in rFactor 2, whilst the UI is not the core of the sim racing title, it is the starting phase of the title for people to navigate around. Seeing as it will be a more direct and consumer friendly approach, I for one applaud the efforts and approach to these changes.
With the Motorsport Games logo emblazoned over the Interface, a big statement of intent is shown for the direction of rFactor 2 and MSG are showing it.
