Please excuse my ignorance on this matter, obviously we will never get a PG2, I understand that, but I don't have a working knowledge of what is involved in designing a course. I've never tried. But the question that I have is, is there some reason why designers can't design courses for PG1 that are every bit as good as Trackman's?

I even wonder if I will get a reply because this forum is so dead.l

Do you mean good visually?  Because there's quite a few PG courses that look great.  Trackman's Pebble might be slightly ahead but only slightly.

You're right about the forum being dead, I half expect this site to disappear any time. I check in hoping for some good news but of course never get any. Still nothing new with regards to EA's game next spring and still holding on to the slim hope it will be available on the PC. I still hold out hope that MS will pull the big surprise and revive Links with next gen graphics but of course that will probably not happen either.

Sad situation.... I still play PG but less and less and without the capability to mod and improve the game it's relevance will continue to decline. For lovers of golf it's disappointing for sure.

The latest from Trackman for PG2 - El Dorado Golf & Beach Club

 

Spectacular looking -- great great work by the design team!

EA Sports announced in early November that their golf game has been delayed.  No information as to how long.  Competition for 2K21 would have been good as there would have been more incentive for them to improve their game.  However I wouldn't spend $500 USD for a PS5 (if I could even find one) just so I could play a golf game.

If anyone needs a GPU upgrade to play the latest games anyhow, the consoles are a massive bargain relatively speaking.

 

I happen to fall into that camp - haha

I'm also a bit in that camp.  I just started looking at new computers, since my current machine is mostly ancient at 7 years old.  It handles PG and the older (non-3dg) courses OK, but I know it won't handle newer courses very well.  The prices of new machines seem to be quite pricey, but I'm undecided about switching to a console.  I'm probably looking at $2500+ for a decent new desktop computer, though, and I'm guessing the latest consoles are more in the $500 to $750 range.  I guess I'll have to keep consoles in mind as well.

 I'm assuming this crypto-mining thing is just a passing fad and hopefully gpu prices will come back down to earth again. Here's a guy on Ebay selling his mining set-up. He says "just sit back, relax and the let the money roll in!'  Yeah, right... ^_^

If it’s so great and easy, why is he selling the machine?

Haven’t heard about it in a while but didn’t China crackdown on crypto and lot of people was going to sell their cards?

 Yeah, I think I read somewhere they were outlawing cryptocurrency...period.  Not sure that's gonna stop it, tho. It looks like the future. I was thinking about setting up a wallet the other day.  Looks easy enough...
