Opel Adam cup by ptsims

Yesterday, 11:29 PM

In an attempt to always offer the best to its community, PTSims took, many years ago, the modding path, offering since its first years of activity high-quality mods with absolutely exclusive content. Renowned championships such as GT Series, initiation championships such as the Lotus Exige (part of the PTSims Academy), or simply dream road cars, PTSims was, for several years, the Portuguese community that most exclusive content offered to its members, for the simulators GTR 2 and Race 07. Every mod was created and released with great care, and the quality reflected that, not only because of the community feedback, but also because many championships with full grids came to life with these mods.

After some years without releasing any mod, it is with great pride that PTSims presents once again exclusive content! This time around, the recently-released simulator Assetto Corsa was chosen as our platform. After many months of hard work by a big team, who started from scratch, we are proud to present the first mod of PTSims Modding Team: the Opel Adam Cup!

Released by the German brand in November 2012, the Opel Adam Cup is a rally car based on the road model with the same name. In Germany, the car has its own championship, named ADAC Opel Rally Cup. The PTSims version was based on this one but prepared, naturally, for tarmac races. The Opel Adam Cup is therefore a fun car to drive, which allows all kind of drivers, rookies or more experienced, to participate in funny and competitive races, because it doesn’t demand great changes in the car’s setup. The PTSims version has the following characteristics:

- Engine: Opel Ecotec 1.6
- Weight: 1031 kg
- Horsepower: 260 bhp @7500 rpm
- Torque: 190 Nm @5000 rpm
- Drive: FWD
- Gearbox: 5 speed, sequential
- Top Speed: 230 km/h
- Acceleration: 0-100 km/h in 5.9 seconds
- Fuel tank: 38 litres
- Available tyres: Michelin slick



As it is natural, this is the first version of the Opel Adam Cup, so there are certainly small bugs to fix and various improvements that can be made. Therefore, we ask everyone for some feedback! The mod is available to anyone, without exception, and we allow it to be publicized everywhere. However, no one is authorized to modify or convert the mod without authorization from PTSims. Please respect our work and always credit us when using this mod elsewhere. If you want to help us improve the mod, please contact us through ptsims@ptsims.net or visit our forum (www.ptsims.net/forum).
PTSims Modding Team hopes to release some more high-quality mods in the near future that will offer exclusive content for Assetto Corsa! The Opel Adam Cup is available below for download, have fun with it!

R3E: force feedback e circuiti migliorati

01 September 2014 - 02:33 PM

Tramite Facebook, il team Simbin ci aggiorna sui miglioramenti in arrivo per il suo RaceRoom Racing Experience: molto lavoro è stato fatto per il force feedback, ma anche per il miglioramento tecnico dei circuiti, che saranno mano a mano aggiornati alla nuova versione, inoltre anche la fisica delle vetture è stata portata ad un livello successivo.


The last few months we have put a lot of effort into redoing our Force Feedback. The major part of the programming work is done! Improving the FFB is a lot more than some calculations and some line in the code, or having the right control set for the wheel. Additionally our track artists have developed a new technology to improve the presentation and feedback from our track´s road surface. By using a wide range of data, including CAD and telemetry, they have created a highly dense road surface that features small bumps and surface imperfections that increase the quality of the Force Feedback immensely.

The tracks that will be ready for this technology in our next R3E update are:

Red Bull Ring

more to be added soon...

In order to get the best Force Feedback we will update our car physics. New car releases will have the new physics, older content will be updated over coming R3E releases.
Stay tuned!

[AC - APPS] Rivali OV1 Info

31 August 2014 - 07:28 AM

File Name: Rivali OV1 Info

File Submitter: VELOCIPEDE

File Submitted: 31 Aug 2014

-> Topic forum support <-


Hey guys, I got my first app working with the tools provided by the devs. There are still a lot of things to do, but until some of the required dev functions are working and others are available I'll have to settle with the current state.
Hope you guys will enjoy it, as much as I do! clear.png

Description: OV1 Info app is an all-in-one information hub. It has a modern design that hopefully will suit many users and it has the required information, which I think are vital for practice and racing.

Download the file (link at the bottom of the post). Extract the folders inside the Assetto Corsa root folder:


The folder "OV1Info" should be next to the "gMeter" and "system" folders.

Please make sure you enable the app by going to AC's Settings Panel > General (bottom of the screen).

For those of you who already use this app, when updating, make sure you don't overwrite your "best_lap.ini" file. Cut and paste to another folder, delete your old "ov1info" folder. Extract the new files and replace the new "best_lap.ini" with your old one.

For V4.0 the folder structure has been changed: "best_lap.ini" and "car_info.ini" files can be found inside the "userdata" folder.

Known issues:

  • For those of you who use OV1 F1 2014 HUD as well, please make sure you update it to the latest version (link in my signature). Both apps need to be updated to avoid malfunctions.
  • Waiting for your input on this clear.png

Change log v4.1 (August 31th, 2014):

  • Panels can now be attached/detached on both sides of the tachometer;
  • Fuel information is now on its own panel, which can be moved anywhere and also on the right side of the tachometer;
  • Changed fuel gauge (now in the top position, with new design);
  • Moved delta meter display at the bottom of the tachometer (had to be done for visual balance reasons);
  • Tachometer can now be hidden individually (close the main app from apps sidebar);
  • Added 8th gear texture and logic for the Formula Corsa F1 2014 cars;
  • Added "invisible" Pin texture (with back-up).

Change log v4.0 (August 30th, 2014):

  • NEW: Added swappable panels to the main app. You can now drag and "snap-into-place" a panel to the tachometer window. Watch latest video to see it in action!
  • Major code structure improvement (files, classes, etc.)
  • Updated "sim_info.py" file to the latest version. App is now compatible with the latest version of Assetto Corsa (0.22.xx)
