There was a question asking when on the forum, a response this morning said "when the devs announce it" hopefully soon anyway. I know a couple people who really wanna try it. They look at the screen shots and got a bit happy in the pants :cool:

I have Been a racing fan for MANY years, and am VERY curious as to the Details of this "tool kit" donation thing. So If I Pay, I can Download the Game NOW??? As is? or what Do I get, aside from the "Privy" information? I've only recently learned of this Game, but it Looks VERY impressive, SO FAR. I'll Definitely Pay , if I can play it As is.

So when they do a weekend for new people to join, it would be for team member+. So for 45 euro (~$60) you get access to weekly builds released on friday. So as is, theyre adding new cars, tweaking physics, making changes to cars/tracks, etc. But it's a playable game. You can race online, do practice, time trials, race ai. When it comes out, you get the final game for free. There is some content locked to senior members and above, ie nurburgring GP track (called eifelwald in game). Not sure if there's other content locked to that or not.

Do you know if I Bought 2(two) copies , if I would be able to LAN the Game?

LAN would be Icing on the cake for Me, For My room mate , and My self.

But I'll definitely Buy if I get the game free as well when it's released.

Yes you will be able to LAN the game in the future. But to have 2 copies when you buy the tool packs, you have to link each account to a different PayPal account. Or wait till the game is out and buy 2 copies.

Cool, two accounts is NO problem, since we both have Pay-buddy. I actually think in this Case Multi-player would be sufficient, I usually go for LAN to Avoid All the clowns on public servers, but I'm sure It wouldn't have a Join in Feature after a Race was started like BF3 does with it's matches. I always hated playing 1vs 1 in BF3 , only to have some person join in mid game.

thanks for the info guy's, and this game looks Sweet. My room mate and I are both race fans, and We Actually Race in real life(I mostly help in the pit, he Drives,mini Stock), so it's another way to have fun for FAR less $$. Plus neither of us could ever afford 99.99999999% of the Cars that this game will include.Also no need to load up the trailer, and Drive to New Hampshire or CT to the Track.

I recommend you to take a look at Assetto Corsa (coming early 2013) it's from the same guys who made NetKar Pro and Ferrari Virtual Academy.

http://www.assettocorsa.net/?lang=en

Personally i'll play both pCARS and Assetto Corsa.

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 !! (wouldnt fit in here)

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!

The legendary Solitude races began in 1903 with a hillclimb sprint for motorcycles starting downtown from Stuttgart’s western railwaystation and finishing up at Solitude castle. A couple of years later the start was moved to Schützenhaus 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 ‘Rund um die Solitude’ 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.

And thats it for now guys, ill leave you with some media in the meanwhile!

Just dont go too cheap. With wheels you get what you pay for. There's a $50 thrustmaster ferrari wheel, but it uses bungee cords as a resistance system instead of a motor. You also typically don't get 900degree steering on wheels priced around that.

Maybe look at getting a logitech driving force gt (my first wheel). Lots of people don't like the pedals as they offer little resistance. It didnt bug me though.

With wheels you do get what you pay for. The more you pay, the more features and realism you get. Just have to weigh what your willing to spend.

This is not official yet, but Mercedes Benz cars will be part of pCARS. I hope they license the 1991 190E DTM.

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)


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


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.

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.
ZOMG the graphics look gorgeous. Love the lighting and shadows. The Focus and the E30 are standouts for me, love em. Can't wait for those 2 days for new members!

I was asked what racing games are good right now and I suggested to the friend, project cars. I showed him a few videos and he liked how it looked. He knows it is in beta still and is fine with that. He wants a confirmation if there is a single player vs computer players(ai)?

Codemasters Racing are in trouble depending on what kind of physics/handling this game has.

The graphics on this game are just stupid good.
Look at the ford focus!

Is this game designed with controllers and keyboard in mind or is it directed at getting a wheel?

Yes.

Right now there is both multiplayer and player vs AI , the idea is to have a full career where you have to race against the AI when it's finished.

This is going to be racing simulator, IMO a totally different game than what Codemaster is doing which is something more casual (it doesn't even have a cockpit view). Similar games to pCARS are RACE07, GTR, GTR2, GT Legends, etc.

You will be able to play the game with a controller or a keyboard, but right now, to really enjoy it you have to use a wheel. This is because until the physics and tire model are not finished it's impossible to balance the controller filters.
