hope this doesn't bring down the visuals. i have every thing else maxed out in advanced but i noticed in the config section it says "medium" detail. so i hope i don't have to play at low res. to get maximum visuals. i'm also running at 16XQCCAA
This "medium" means the recommended setting.

Are there any official release threads for these mods on the web? I don't see anything on the official forums (apart from the one Ultra High graphics mod thread that doesn't get too much attention). Would like to read other people's comments on these visual mods, and get some screenshot action and such before applying them

A friend told me that Grid uses Physx for stuff like those flags waving about. Is this true?.

I bought this game and was dissapointed a bit, as the physics modeling seemed like mush compared to the GTR series. In GTR it really feels like I'm connected to the car, but I don't get that feeling with this one. For example I really love the way the cars in GTR have that sort of bounce when breaking hard, but nothing like that here, though I guess this one is more of an arcade style than a sim. It's got a lot more of a fun factor though than a pure sim, which is nice, along with the visuals.

Are you saying that an arcade game is more fun that sim by default? The best racing experiences i've had is racing GTR2 or GT Legends online.
