BTCC: il successo del simulatore

Yesterday, 12:38 PM

Vi segnalo la lettura di questo interessante articolo dedicato ad rFactor, ma il cui tema può essere esteso ad ogni racing sim: viene spiegato l'utilizzo del simulatore da parte dei piloti del team Strakka Performance impegnato nel campionato turismo inglese BTCC, rivelatosi non solo utilissimo ma persino fondamentale per arrivare alla vittoria.

I had a great build up to Silverstone with a whole day spent on the Simulator. I have been preparing for race weekends slightly differently in 2015 and I now go to Strakka Performance regularly to use their Simulator, usually after Shakedown on a Thursday afternoon. If I am honest I was always sceptical of the benefits of Simulator’s since because it is not real and you can ‘cheat’ on a Simulator, I often thought well there isn’t much point using one then. But this year I have proved all my doubts wrong...

Assetto Corsa 1.3 e Dream Pack 2: ci siamo...

02 October 2015 - 04:35 PM

Dear AC followers, we are completing the final phase of betatesting, and we are glad to announce that Assetto Corsa 1.3 and Dream Pack 2 will be available for download by October 8th!

With Assetto Corsa 1.3 the process of improvement of all aspects of our simulation continues to progress properly. Here's following just few highlights of what you can expect to find in Assetto Corsa next week:

Assetto Corsa Dream Pack 2

The new Dream Pack 2 will include the Circuit of Catalunya, based on Laserscan point cloud, featuring GP and MotoGP layouts, as well as 7+2 new awesome and legendary cars:

Lamborghini Countach 5000 Quattro Valvole
Lamborghini Huracan GT3
Ford GT40 MK1
Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus SCG003
BMW M4 Coupe
BMW M4 Coupe Akrapovic Edition

The Assetto Corsa Dream Pack 2 will be available on Steam by October 8th, at 7,99 EUR.


Assetto Corsa 1.3

64-bit natively supported and car physics calculated on multi-thread. The physics engine has been reworked to become completely multithreaded: as a result, the driving precision is augmented, the accuracy further improved and the physics solver has enough horsepower to completely resolve any difficult calculations any speed, achieving butter smooth Force Feedback and complete elimination of signal noise and vibrations. We'll be back with more details on physics updates when the new build will be released next week.

2D/3D models, textures and shaders have been updated and improved, in order to keep the standards reached with the latest content. Now windscreens receive shadows, and a new camera facing feature improves the rendering of 2D/3D objects on track. A first basic support for dynamic objects on tracks has been added as well, and it will be improved in future updates, with the aim to get a more immersive environment.

Fine tuning and improved algorithms for audio editing: all new cars benefit by use of new techniques of recording and sampling for engines, interiors and exhaust systems, also thanks to the technical cooperation of Akrapovic. This allows to recreate a more detailed audio trace and the exclusive detail of each car, improving the immersion while driving. Content that are available already in Assetto Corsa will be updated during the process, to bring them to a higher level of realism and in line with the latest quality standards.

Dedicated server has been optimized in order to improve general stability.
New parameters and features have been added to server configuration, in order to please the requests of gamers who are looking for a more comprehensive online experience.

Get ready to experience the most advanced driving experience!
