    Nah Wreckfest is a different game to BeamNG.drive.

    Weird name, that: beam en gee dot drive

    Beam is like Garry's Mod but for vehicles.

    Wreckfest is a more curated experience with decent single and multiplayer. It's a bit like Mario Kart but with physics that surpass GTA, and you get to drive things that range from school buses to lawnmowers, or three-wheelers (think of the Reliant Robin) or V8 muscle cars. Or couches. There are no weapons except for the might of your front bumper.

    Wreckfest spent four years in beta as "Next Car Game."

    Beam and NCG/Wreckfest both feature soft body physics as its definitive feature.

    Ahh, I think I was conflating Beam and Next Car Game.

    I finally broke down and bought Assetto Corsa Competizione, figuring I'd see how it was with a controller.

    But then I searched Best Buy for force feedback wheels in stock, and lo and behold, my nearest one had a Logitech G923.

    Had. Past tense.

    Because I have it now.

    I set it up on my old desk (the one I bought in ~2006 for the Xbox 360 Wireless Racing Wheel I got from a coworker for cheap), and aside from walking a little under hard braking, it works great, then rolls out of the way.

    ACC felt great after I got the settings right (hint: load the presets for this model of wheel, which shows up automatically but I screwed up and had to go back to). I still have not gotten the Forza settings right, and/or it and I suck with this wheel.
    Get that weak shit off my track

    Good stuff Keith.
    Forza with a wheel is a frustrating experience, I couldn't do it. Yet any proper sim feels fantastic.

    I tried the first suggested settings from a Google search and it was much better, though I still had a snap spin in the esses at Road Atlanta.

    I have also never had a wheel feel good with Forza (or FH, for that matter). I'm pretty sure the whole it was designed with a controller in mind and the wheel was an afterthought that was never really tuned correctly.

    Project CARS 2 feels great! Wow. The framerate is still bad, even on the XBox Series X, and I know the game probably still has its bugs, but man...
