And of course the future is going to be HistorX 2.0.
But why haven't we called the latest version of the HGT&TC mod “HistorX v2.0” in the end?
Well, first of all, HistorX is in fact the name of the team behind this mod. Anyway, we understand “HistorX” is way shorter so in the end everybody tends to use it instead (even us). So Historic GT & TC 1.9 is the last major version of the mod which will use the “old name”.
Second, we never really said that the next big version for rFactor1 was going to be released as “v2”. That version number came from the community when they started to talk about the work in progress version of this mod. A new name was needed for it so that was probably a logical choice. We tried to avoid using it, and use instead simply “the next version of the mod”. But HistorX 2.0 was still being used everywhere, so eventually it became the name everyone expected to get when this version were finally released.
So if we decided to use HGT&TC v1.9 instead of v2.0 is because:
1. Despite this mod version is almost 100% new it’s still using the same engine: rFactor. So from a software development point of view it should be “v1.something”, not v2.
2. This is an “always in development” project. It’s huge, complex and could go on almost forever, because we always want to improve things and add new content. So, unless we set certain deadlines we would never release anything. That means that despite almost everything you’ll in it is considered as “final” some bits may not be 100% finished. Hope you will understand that as part of that “ongoing” development process, not really as a lack of attention to detail.
If it’s ever released for a new game engine (as rFactor2, for example), then you can expect such version jump
So, when the moment comes we'll let you know what you can expect from our next project, which of course will follow the path we've built with Historic GT & TC.
But in the meantime go to the Historic GT & Touring car mod section on this forum and get that mod. It's latest version is coming VERY SOON
We hope you really enjoy it!
