The first version of the new FFB system was also rolled out this week but I haven't had a chance to test it. I really hope the FFB, and the new tyre model (which isn't in yet) works out, especially the tyres. As much as they try and tweak what is there at the moment, something on a fundamental level just doesn't feel quite right about it.

@ultrasoundwave.. as manager?! money to burn!

A weather system has been introduced ingame with some amazing effects that will leave you with the your jaw dropped!
The FFB and physics have been improved greatly.
Nordschleife has been added to the game and is near completion.
Most of the already existant tracks have been updated and are looking better than ever.
2012 BMW Z4 GT3 & 1981 BMW M1 been added ingame and are available to race with.
The work on the 1980 Ford Capri Zakspeed & 1991 BMW M3 E30 Group A has started and they are going at a fast rate!

Great news everyone, the first Multiplayer testing of Project CARS occured today and it went smooth! The developers invited some members to try with them and discussed the progress with them live through a chat meeting. There were 13 players from US, Asia and Europe all playing together on the same server and there was no visible warping or other major issue like it was expected !
MP Test 2 will be on tomorrow @ 5pm GMT - Check the MP Videos @ the Gametrailers

I have to say i'm not actually a fan of where the handling is right now, feels a bit woolly and the cars still don't feel quite right in slides and over bumps to me.
Did you try with the -seta parameter ?
What's that? I only play it with out of the box settings
Ah, they have a new tire model called SETA which brings a physics to a new level, currently it only works properly in the Formula A but some say the other cars already feel better than usual.
Heres the link for the main thread: http://forum.wmdportal.com/showthread.php?9969-STM-Status-Overview-Known-Issues-List
Basicaly you just need to add this line to the parameters:

I think it forces the use of the new tyre model in a few of the cars. Haven't used it myself yet but then I only noticed it mentioned on the forum a day or two a go.
edit: beaten by a more informative answer.

Apparently the multiplayer is now available for team members!

Hope to see some of you guys online, it's a lot more fun than the AI, same name as here.
My 'add friends' box appears to be greyed out.
Just firing this up for the first time in ages.
I had a right gaff about with install problems last week and eventually gave up so hopefully wen I do a clean install tomorrow all will be well.
Big news everyone, RUF just joined Project CARS!
Project CARS will include four of Ruf’s icnonic German sports cars, bringing both a true classic and three current RUF models to the title.
[B]1987 RUF CTR “Yellowbird”[/B]
Based on the Porsche 911 3.2, the 1987 CTR „Yellowbird“ is one of Ruf’s most iconic models.
[B]2012 RUF CTR 3[/B]
20 years later, Ruf continued their famous CTR range with a new model as the third-generation CTR was unveiled in Bahrain in 2007.
[B]2012 RUF Rt 12R[/B]
The Rt 12R is based on Porsche’s 997 platform as Ruf once again cut no corners to create a stunning driving machine.
[B]2012 RUF RGT-8[/B]
Based on the brand new Porsche 991 model, the RGT-8 will be the first Porsche 911 body car to not be powered by the traditional flat six engine.
The developers also announced that they recently received a contact from a big German manufacturer interested in having their cars in Project CARS, the developers havnt said much more than this but the speculation is starting to rise @ the official forums !
More info @ the http://www.wmdportal.com/projectnews/ruf-joins-project-cars/ official website!

Hey there guys got some huge updates on Project CARS:
Project CARS funding had a huge boost recently and now they are almost €150,000 from reaching the goal of €3.75Million euros! No info has been released yet of what will happen when the value is reached but theres a big chance they will close the funding and also the access to the Pre-Alpha to those that havent registered yet!
Recently it was announced that a major German car manufacturer offered Slightly Mad Studios access to their vehicles, no info has been disclosed about who this manufacturer is but since RUF and BMW are in, it leaves us with Audi, Opel and Mercedes!
Also the 1980 Ford Capri Zakspeed Group 5 is almost ready to be ingame, according to the developers theres a high probability of having this beast ingame this week. Check the amazing looks of this car below, even in a pre-alpha state with missing textures and ambient occlusion it already looks amazing with such refined details like the fully modeled engine!
There are already some Audi DTM cars there
Yes but they are not licenced, so it could be Audi but i believe it is something else. I hope it is Mercedes, i just love them.
The developers just released a preview of the wipers working on the Gumpert in a storm condition where you can see the rain drops being clean out of the windshield ! Looks amazing check it out here! (only for members)
Another member jumped into the trailer making bandwagon and made something pretty sweet . Check out "Drive it" [I]by plm5[/I]!

I hope I can manage to install the game before the closing date!
LoL you better hurry an hour ago there was 80k left now its under 45k!
I've given up trying to reinstall the damn thing. I can install build 249 but trying to patch it with the launcher or individual patches is a nightmare.
Edit* Managed to finally get the launcher working after several 'Access Denied' warnings when the launcher tried to replace the launcher.exe and the uninstal.exe, now i'm downloading the patches(again). If they don't work i'm definitely giving up!
