Intervista a Massarutto della Kunos by Eurogamer

Today, 10:37 AM

Il portale italiano di Eurogamer ha pubblicato a questo indirizzo una interessante intervista fatta a Marco Massarutto della Kunos Simulazioni. L'intervista parla di tante cose che gli appassionati più attenti già sanno, ma fornisce anche alcuni interessanti spunti di discussione... Nell'articolo troviamo anche uno splendido filmato dedicato all'affascinante Alfa Romeo 4C.

 

Eurogamer: Quando è nato, concretamente, il progetto di Assetto Corsa? Era il gioco che volevate fare sin dall'inizio o, come i cioccolatini, una macchina tira l'altra?

Marco Massarutto: Nel 2008 ci fu proposto di realizzare un videogame ufficiale sul Campionato Italiano GT e preparammo un prototipo. Mesi dopo il progetto fu bloccato per problemi di licenze, ma nel frattempo avevamo acquisito un notevole know-how, creando anche una rete di conoscenze nel mondo dell'automotive che risultò preziosa per valutare la fattibilità di un progetto come Assetto Corsa, inizialmente pensato come modello free to play.

 

Eurogamer: Qual è stata la vettura più difficile da riprodurre, e perché?

Marco Massarutto: Non abbiamo riscontrato particolari criticità fino a quando non abbiamo affrontato il problema della trazione integrale con l'Alfa 155 DTM, dato che non è sufficiente aggiungere un differenziale (ride ND Elvin) ma devi creare un equilibrio tra i diversi sistemi e considerare che la trazione non è ripartita nello stesso modo tra asse anteriore e posteriore.

[WIP] Sportscars Unlimited by Virtua_LM

Yesterday, 01:12 PM

So you thought after GTPC v1 Virtua_lm was in for a vacation???
HELL no!!
Today we will anounce the next chapter we have started.
Sportscars Unlimited
This mod will be build for Rfactor2.
No logo yet just a name and a few renders.
So what is it.
After release of GTPC we started talking about what to do next.
First most important thing was we wanted to build cars we as group really liked and we wanted to thank a couple of people who
helped us a lot with info for GTPC by building their cars.
So we started gathering info for a couple of cars.
1. Gebhardt c91
2. Brun c901.
3 Interpid RM1.
Virtua_lm tries to make historical correct cars. So a lot of fun we have is finding all those small details, contacting original racedrivers,
mechanics and try to get as much info as possible to recreate them and be as historical correct as possible in looks, physics.
That is for us the fun of modding.
Because we have upgrades it is impossible right now to build this for AC.
So yes it looks like we model the later years of sportscar racing now. But Unlimited in Sportscar Unlimited stands for cars WE like so could be a older sportscar car too.
Vivemclaren has started to model the RM1. Today we would like to show you his first progress report.
As you can see lot of work is still to be done.
Vivemclaren do" list
1991 : Adding a small rod for #65 (Mid Ohio)
1992 MTI : Extra louvres front hood
1992 MTI : Low downforce rear wing (need look for pictures in historic races)
1992 MTI : Finish the rear part
Rods on the front hood : Scale them
All versions : details
All versions : Engine & mechanical part
and then all the other stuff..... So still a very long way to go.
We are still on the lookout for images from a few races. If anyone can help us we would be very happy
Missing picture
1991
Rd 2 - West Palm Beach (need pictures of the rear part)
Rd 4 - Miami (we have only one picture of front)
Rd 5 - Road Atlanta (need more pictures)
Rd 7 - Lime Rock (need more pictures)
Rd 9 - New Orleans (without rear wheels covers) (need pictures)
Rd 10 - Watkins Glen (need more pictures)
Rd 12 - Portland (need pictures)
Rd 13 - Del Mar (need pictures of the rear part)
1992

1993
Rd 2 - Miami (need pictures)
Rd 4 - Atlanta (need pictures)
Rd 5 - Lime Rock (need pictures)
Rd 6 - Mid Ohio (need more pictures)
Rd 7 - Watkins Glen (need more pictures)
Rd 9 - Laguna Seca (need pictures)
Rd 10 - Portland (need pictures)
Rd 11 - Phoenix (need more pictures)
So what about GTPC for Rfactor1.
The final Patch is worked on. Personally I am working on making the paint templates ready, Swisshutless physics and
Vivemclaren in between modeling few 3d model issues.
Smaller paint issues are less importatn to us
Possibe with a extra car but Let us see if we can make that happen for real..
I think the builder. Monsum The track modeller who brought you Sebring, Le Mans, Mid ohio Made one carThat car will hopfully be included in GTPC.
A car originally made for GTX5!

At the same time the whole GTR2 class will get a physics update by @Marko Hartikainen to lift it to our current standards + many additional liveries to provide you with an immersive grid.
Another special item that will soon hit the store is the Sonoma Raceway.
And @Wojtek Kedzierski once again outdid himself by adding an amount of details that has never been seen before.
