Description
We at Apex Modding Team thank you for downloading our 2012 FIA GT3 mod for rFactor2.
It took years of work to create, improve and fix content, as well as stay current with game and technology updates.
If you enjoy our work and wish to support us for past content or for future incentive, you can donate any amount through this link.
If you downloaded our mod outside of Steam, please do not forget to install “AM_FIAGT3_2012.rfcmp” as it is the file that contains the sounds.
Below is a summarized changelog between our last public beta and our v1.0 release. Enjoy the reading and we hope you will enjoy racing a full grid of cars - Bentley, BMW, Chevrolet, Mercedes, and an Italian and another German manufacturer – both offline and online!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Apex Modding FIA GT3 2012 version 1.0
- New cpm 2.0 tyres based on Studio 397 tyre database, rebuilt and tweaked with Redapg online tools.
IMPORTANT: You need to be careful on the first lap out of the pits as these tyres, like in real life, need to reach a proper temperature window. If you push too hard too soon, the long-term pace and tyre life will be jeopardized. This mod is an endurance mod, like in real life, strategy is important. S7 tires are the softest compound, S9 are the hardest compound.
- S7 tyres can handle 30 laps at a circuit like Spa-Francorchamps. The S7 is the tyre to use in Sprint races (Lasting one hour or less).
- S8 lets you run a double-fuel stint and can last roughly two hours.
- S9 can last up to three hours so it is a great option for proper endurance races
- Reworked default setups which now offer a great blend between drivability and stability.
- Added latest rFactor2 tech such as:
- ABS, Traction Control (default setting is Medium), rain drop shaders and behavior to body and windscreen (wipers are now necessary), tweaked chassis flex, fuel movement
- Undocumented and not fully supported by the game, we added night lights in the cockpits of 997, 12C, SLS, and Z4 as per real life references. There are limitations to what was realistically achievable so we had to settle for an implementation that worked and was not buggy
- Illuminated MOTEC

Reworked car filters and categories, and added more filters:
- AMGT3: All cars (each manufacturer has their own filter too)
- AM_ADAC-GT: Cars that participated in the ADAC GT Masters
- AM_BES: Cars from the Blancpain series
- AM_FIAGT3: Cars from the FIA GT3 series
- AM_PWC: Cars from the PIRELLI WORLD CHALLENGE
- AM_VLN: Cars that participated in the Nordschleife VLN race
- Some series have cars with only a couple of liveries. We were not able to paint all of the cars but believe the overall representation is very good. The mod is now organized in a way where new skins are more easily added and found, and more skins can be added in a future update if the community wishes to contribute
Debugging
- Reworked Z06 chassis flex to address bottoming issues in tracks like Nordschleife or Spa-Francorchamps
- Removed heat haze from the SLS
- 799 cockpit camera correctly centered
- Removed fuel mixture settings
- MP4-12C and Z06 now use the correct sidewall textures
- Reworked class filter display


Not Included
- Chassis scratches due to game limitations. Detachable parts remain.
- Car LED position lights as the real cars we recreated did not feature such

Fixed, thank you. By manually installing the files the Z4 and the AMG now appeared in the content screen (they were not there before) and I could click and install them.

Very good. Where does the AM_FIAGT3_2012_ V1.05.rfcmp go? In the vehicles folder or somewhere else? I only found a folder with ALL_CARS and ALL_TRACKS .rfcmp's in one folder. Could not find the AM....V1.05.rfcmp anywhere in my rFactor2 directory (which of course is the problem).

I have a problem. I keep getting the message failed verification AM_FIAGT3_2012_SLSAMG 1.05 AND THE SAME FOR _Z4GT3 1.05. Anything I can do to fix this?

Great mod, loving it. only comment is wet tyre grips better on dry line at high temp than in the wet.
