How does the handling compare with SimBin racers, i.e. GTR2, Race 07? Is the support for G27 good? Any release date yet?

Gosh if the physics are good (i.e. rather like GTR2 than Shift) I am absolutely getting this. It'll justify my massive computer upgrade when Haswell comes out. :p

Support for the G27 is pretty good, theres alot of info and other players currently using that wheel. You also have a default profile set ingame for the G27 and different pedals combos.

Physics are more alike GTR2 than Shift or Shift2, the concept of this game is to be a racing simulator and not a simcade or something alike. The road is still long until the perfect physics can be achieved but we have alot of help from the community, Ben Collins aka The STIG and Nicolas Hamilton.

A new month has begun, so it’s time to check what happened so far since my last post.
There were some big developments in the vehicle department with the addition of 4 new cars !! Yes you read it right 4 cars in less than 3 weeks!

1991 BMW M3 E30 (<- click for more images)

2012 BMW M3 GT
(<- click for more images)
Posted Image

2012 Ford Focus RS
(<- click for more images)
Posted Image

2011 Mercedes –Benz AMG SLS
(<- click for more images)

These 4 have put a lot of smiles in everyone faces around here and I believe it will do the same to some of you! :D

A new track has also been added, Solitude Rennstrecke, still in a very wip state but already showing how great this classic track was back in the old days when the races were done by man and machine only, no electronics there to help you out a pure driving joy to have! (pictures will come later on when its more developed)

Besides these great news the developers also shown some early sketches of the Grid Girls to be used in the game and boy must I say they look sexy ! Unfortunately I cannot post them here because they are on the edge of forum rules but believe me they would make something move down there!

Qualifying mode has been introduced as well, only available currently in single player mode but it gives you a taste of what’s coming into the multiplayer eventually.

The handling consultants, Nicolas Hamilton and Ben Collins have been giving some amazing feedback and as a result of that the physics recently improved largely on most of the cars but the most exciting ones to be the new Ford Focus RS, Racer L4-RS, Caterham R500/Classic and Formula A (F1).
There were a few, of course that didn’t improve as much and it still feels a bit out of place but with the constant feedback given by the consultants and the community they will surely get there soon enough!

In the visual department there were some big updates also, new weather functionalities have been added, as some new rain droplet improvements that make you astonished of how realistic it look and react when hitting your car and windshield, you can see some pictures in the links above!

Andy Tudor also introduced recently new UI improvements, which will improve the menu navigations greatly!

About the 2 day opening to new members to register it seems to be taking a bit more than expected, as soon theres more info about it I will post on this thread, be sure to subscribe so you don’t lose the track from sight! ;)

That’s all for now, as soon as more developments happen I will be sure to post here.

YES! The E30 M3 and the SLS AMG, muy bueno! Now that there are licensed Mercedes/BMW, I can't wait till they expand to more models!

The update is up, but i suggest you read the forums first before trying as it requires some FFB files to improve the FFB overall feeling. Dont forget to delete your profile when installing the new patch.
Then go and try some of the cars like the Focus RS, Pirault Mega RS, Caterham R500, Formula B (has 3 tire models for testing you can read @ the link above).

Here i am again, another 2 weeks have gone by and “Oh my god” could they have been even better?

Let’s start with something I’ve spoken last time, the Grid Girls, I couldn’t show you images before but now I have one that can be shared.
Beware those with heart condition or that recently took Viagra, what you are about to see may cause undesired effects!

Posted Image
This is one of the variations (work in progress), there are others planned with different outfits/faces.

Another thing that may cause some funny feelings down there is the recent car announcement, the RUF RGT-8.
You may think the announcement isn’t that exciting, you already knew it was coming, but what if you could see some images of the car in-game? Oh yeah!!

Posted Image

Yes it’s not a Porsche we all know that, but it is a sexy beast and look at “DAT ASS” :cool:, even as a very early preview of the car it looks amazing and its hoped to come to a build in the next weeks.

Besides these 2 great news there’s another one for all the French car lovers out there, the Pirault Mega RS, similar to a Renault Megane III RS Cup this baby has been brought in-game to give the Focus RS some hard time and I must say it’s a really nifty car to drive. Slower in the straights than the RS but when you get into a corner you will just be gaining so much it wont matter how fast the Focus RS goes! (unless you are in a oval!)

More images available here: https://www.dropbox..../Pirault Megane

The fog effect also got some work done recently with the addition of a mist effect that looks absolutely brilliant and turns the whole experience much more immersive, you can check them below.

Do you have the guts to try and drive in these conditions?

The physics was another department that also suffered some changes recently with the addition of the flexible tire carcasses, we are starting to notice deformation on the tires and a different reaction in terms of grip depending on the compound used, there’s a lot of progress in this area with multiple tires currently available for different cars but not quite finished! The feedback from the community and our resident consultants (Nicolas Hamilton and Ben Collins) has helped the developers to deliver a lot of fixes and improvements to turn this game into something that can’t be explained any longer by just using words or images.

Another great addition was the introduction of a built-in Downsampling method, delivering the same quality as the former AA methods like MSAA4x and 8x but with a better performance, theres still some edges that need refinement but the developers are on the right track, you will notice in the next community (coming next week) gallery for sure the difference it makes.

That’s all for now, hope you guys have enjoyed this update!

Hey there folks, another update with some great news.
You read on my latest update that the RUF RGT-8 was announced and I’ve shown you some pics that the developers shared with us, well now I can show you pics taken by myself ingame showing the car in its full glory, you can check them below.

Theres also some extra good news, out of nowhere the developers presented us with another BMW, this time the BMW M3 E92 GT4 and even tho its not a full detailed version like the RUF RGT-8 it still looks stunning, still in a early stage of development.

Both vehicles will be available in the next build coming out Friday!

Martin Griffiths, one of the Render Coders behind the Madness Engine also been working his butt off these past weeks with a huge amount of bug fixes and new features to increase the quality even further. If you think this game already looks good, the next incoming features will just blow your mind!

That’s all for now, hope you guys enjoyed!

Hi again, not sure this time where to start with to be honest.. so much has happened recently.

There has been a huge optimization been made to the Madness Engine by the developer Martin Griffiths in order to give a better performance and to kill some annoying bugs that have been haunting us for quite some time.
Physics have been improved as well in many of the cars currently available and it has been a blast to drive some of them.

Andy Tudor, the Creative Director behind Project CARS did an interview recently for NowGamer where he spoke about the Wii U version and from what I see around the web it has caused a huge ruckus, I advise everyone interested into giving it a read.

The first cut of the SDK/API for Project CARS has also been released, this will allow many developers to create amazing apps to interact with Project CARS.
There’s also a lot of hints around the web about Project CARS and Oculus Rift support, recently Andy Tudor posted an intriguing sentence at his Twitter in response to a news post @ VirtualR.

We may or may not be looking forward to the @Oculus3D ;-) http://www.virtualr....testing-started … #WMDCars #SlightlyMadTeam


Two new cars coming soon to Project CARS, the 2012 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X FQ-400 & the Ford Racing Mustang BOSS 302R1, both in a very early stage of development are going to be introduced within the project in order to test their physics, so there won’t be any pictures of it yet to be shown for now, further ahead when they are more complete in terms of visuals you will surely start seeing images/videos of them around the web.

To end this up and since there hasn’t been any images to show I leave you with a new trailer by our Community member Plm5.
