Message from the Developers to everyone who contributed to the project.|
|That sucks, i wanted to try it out, only found about about the site a few hours ago.|
|Nic Hamilton has just tweeted that he's the lastest addition to the dev team, heh|
Great news everyone, Slightly Mad Studios just announced that [B]Nicolas Hamilton[/B] (Lewis Hamilton brother) just joined the project as a handling Consultant!|
Slightly Mad Studios is delighted to announce the newest contributor to Project CARS as real-life racing driver Nicolas Hamilton has joined the studio as Handling Consultant for the new title.
Nicolas is an excellent fit for Project CARS as his experience combines vast knowledge from racing in the real world and roots in simulation racing, allowing him to understand both sides and effectively help Project CARS fulfil its potential.
Born in Herfordshire, England, in 1992, Nicolas was brought up in the motorsports world alongside older brother Lewis. Born with Cerebral Palsy, Nicolas has always made sure this wouldnít stop him from pursing his passion for racing.
After a first try of karting at the age of 7, Nicolasí racing career kicked into higher gear in 2010 when he impressed everyone testing a BMW M3 at Palmer Sport. His smooth driving style earned him his MSA Novice Racing License and secured him a seat in the Air Asia Renault Clio Cup where he has been competing ever since.
Aside from making it in the real racing world, Nicolas has also made a name for himself in simulation racing, finishing first in the 2009 SBTCC Championship and racing successful in plenty of other community-organized sim racing events.
Nicolas will be assisting the development team with making the handling in Project CARS as authentic as possible, as well as providing other general feedback. Hes pretty good, already set alot of records in several tracks using a different number of cars and i honestly suggest you guys try to beat his records !
And if this wasnt amazing enough, they also announced that [B]Ben Collins[/B] is coming back this month! Oh yeah [B]The STIG[/B] is back !
More info @ http://www.wmdportal.com/

|you were a day late, you're slipping *tut,tut*|
I really like the guy, but 'vast experience' is over-egging it a leetle bit|
I fired this up the other day for the first time in a while - have they made the game a bit easier to handle generally?

A new trailer made by the community member Jonz have been released with ingame multiplayer footage,check it out below!|
They also announced the winners from the Thrustmaster contest at the official forums, go check it out !
When will the multiplayer be coming to the cheapskates who didn't get around to giving enough money?|

Still gonna take a while, they havnt mentioned any deadlines. |
But you can upgrade if you want, the community asked the devs to give some of their part in the funding it would be able for them to upgrade and they accepted, so current members can still upgrade their tool packs further.
|Tried PCARS again for the fist time in a while today and wow that's back on the right track. BMW GT£ around suzuka is superb|
|cool, thanks Levi. I think I might buy the next one up. Are monthly updates not coming downstream anymore?|
Hi there everyone,|
Been a while since my last post and alot have happened in the meanwhile, but before heading into the good news heres a bad one, the Project CARS - 2 day opening that has been spoken to allow new members has been delayed for a while due to external circumstances.
As soon as theres some updates on this matter be sure that i will come here and tell you guys, so be sure to subscribe this thread!
So lets head to the good news!
- The STIG is back from his adventures and along with Nicolas Hamilton have been helping the developers improve the physics on many cars, it is still far from finished but showing a huge progress already!
- A new track has been added to the current available list - Emirates Raceway - Dubai Autodrome
- The Ford GT40 MkIV has been added recently to the list
- Wet effects added to many tracks
- The Community liveries from the Z4 Contest have been added ingame and are now available to select
- The M1 Procar livery contest had alot of submissions from the Community and the voting currently is underway, be sure to vote in your favorite livery!
- Soft-stop and other steering wheel improvements have been checked in
And much more !!
Oh and as you know, the best is usually left for last... so heres a bombshell still hot (announced just now) that any racing fan will enjoy:
Solitude Rennstrecke - Pre-alpha export
That's right guys, the first export just came out a few minutes ago and it will be available soon to every Project CARS members!
[I]The legendary Solitude races began in 1903 with a hillclimb sprint for motorcycles starting downtown from Stuttgartís western railwaystation and finishing up at Solitude castle. A couple of years later the start was moved to SchŁtzenhaus in the suburb Heslach. Until 1924 this was the track for the annual hillclimb race, since 1922 also for sports and race cars. Mercedes from the beginning sent their best racing cars and drivers in every year and at BMW they decided to debut their first racing motorcycles in this already well known race. In 1925 for the first time there was a circuit race ĎRund um die Solitudeí leading over about 22 km each lap. The circuit was considered as being very demanding and was compared with the famous Targa Florio in Sicily.[/I]
And thats it for now guys, ill leave you with some media in the meanwhile!

A new month has begun, so itís 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)

2011 Mercedes ĖBenz AMG SLS[/link] (<- 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!
A new track has also been added, [B]Solitude Rennstrecke[/B], 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 whatís 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 didnít 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 donít lose the track from sight!
Thatís all for now, as soon as more developments happen I will be sure to post here.

Here i am again, another 2 weeks have gone by and ďOh my godĒ could they have been even better?|
Letís start with something Iíve spoken last time, the Grid Girls, I couldnít show you images before but now I have one that can be shared.
[U][I]Beware those with heart condition or that recently took Viagra, what you are about to see may cause undesired effects![/I][/U]
This is one of the variations [B][I](work in progress)[/I][/B], 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 isnít that exciting, you already knew it was coming, but what if you could see some images of the car in-game? Oh yeah!!
Yes itís not a Porsche we all know that, but it is a sexy beast and look at [I][B]ďDAT ASSĒ [/B][/I], 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 thereís 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 itís 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: Description_here
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, thereís 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 canít 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.
Thatís all for now, hope you guys have enjoyed this update!

@LeviPT About that "2-day opening" -- does it mean that members of the forum who have not bought any toolpacks yet will be allowed to buy one? I know they had some problems with authorities, too. Have they resolved them?|
Thanks in advance for a reply.

|Grid girls? What the fu..?|
Little nitpick to start : shouldnt this be in General Gaming?|
Anyway, onto my issue.
I invested in this ages ago, going in at Manager level. However, due to work and general life stuff, i have completely fallen off the grid in terms of whats going on.
I've been over to the forums but it seems to be a bit of a mess over there, its really hard to just find out the latest general information when you've been away for a while.
Also, after trying Wikipedia to find more info (stupid, i know) i discovered this bit :
Members gain special perks, depending on their purchased tool pack. While not an investment opportunity, members will receive 70% of game sales profits generated within the first 2 years after launch as compensation for their efforts, to be paid quarterly.
I honestly had no idea this was happening. Does it apply to everyone who has invested or just Senior Managers?
Any sort of "Project CARS for dummies"-style update would be appreciated.
"Look at banner Michael!"
Hi there, anyone will be able to join the project when the time comes.
The issues they are having is with the FSA, Financial Security Authorities. Since Kickstarted alike project are something new in the UK the FSA wants to be sure that the whole concept of WMD is within the rules, this is what's delaying the 2 day opening.
Ultrasoundwave wrote:Applies to everyone that helps the development by reporting bugs, give feedback or suggestions, doing liveries for cars that they eventually select, basically everyone that participates more than just helping with the funding.
What do you mean a Project CARS for dummies ? :s
Edited by LeviPT at 11:25:08 20-02-2013
|Personally I think it's quite unlikely that the FSA will agree with them, but hey ho|
@Ultrasoundwave well if you have access to the project you can always check the This Week In Project CARS thread that Rob P. usually posts @
It has all the info of what happened in terms of development.
You can also check the changelog at http://forum.wmdportal.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=68061&d=1360242001

Hey there folks, another update with some great news. |
You read on my latest update that the [B]RUF RGT-8[/B] was announced and Iíve 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 [B]BMW M3 E92 GT4[/B] 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!
Thatís all for now, hope you guys enjoyed!
