RaceRoom: annunciata Silverstone

Aug 23 2016 10:35 AM | VELOCIPEDE in Addons

After it was put on hold in order to finish our laserscanned Nordschleife and other projects, track artist Alex Hummler is now back on track to finish this popular british circuit located in Northamptonshire. Silverstone is built on the site of a World War II Royal Air Force bomber station, which opened in 1943. The airfield's three runways lie within the outline of the present track.
In 2010 the track went under a lot of reconstruction work also introducing the new "Arena" layout, which has been designed to create better overtaking opportunities, but keeping the high speed corner combinations which make this track so unique. The new Pit complex was designed by the same architects as the London 2012 Olympic Stadium and is shaped like a wing, paying tribute to the old WW II Airfield.
The circuit hosts many national and international Racing Series, such as the F1, WEC, MotoGP & BTCC.

Project CARS: vrHive Telemetry App

Aug 08 2016 06:35 PM | VELOCIPEDE in Addons

Those elusive tenths that make up the difference between winning and also-ran is all there—you can’t hide the truth once you get someone’s telemetry. Data doesn’t lie: if you want to know why, and where, you’re losing time to that guy up front, get his data, and compare to yours. Five minutes of analysis, and you’ll know exactly where you’re losing time. Add another five minutes of research, and you’ll know why, too. Combined with a serviceable knowledge of setting up a car, telemetry is the magic bullet that can and will make you a faster driver.

So how do you go about getting telemetry readings in Project CARS? As it happens, there’s an App for that, and it’s brilliant.


The ‘vrHive’ app by MikeyTT is telemetry in the palm of your hand that allows you to dive into the numbers (and graphs) using Project CARS’ API engine. The app comes with two main components: Telemetry logging and analysis, and live data view.


Logging and properly analyzing telemetry will allow you to spot precisely where you’re losing time out on track. Are you 5kmh slower at the end of the straight? Are you 2kmh faster on the exit of Turn 2 but 3kmh slower at the apex? ‘vrHive’ will tell you why, providing you with the tools needed to compare and solve. Telemetry, ultimately, is all about comparison: get your two best laps, get your competitor’s best lap, and the truth will be revealed.




The other main feature the app offers is live data view. In this mode, data is streamed live from the simulator while you’re out on track, either to a second screen or device, or to a remote location. Live data view is highly customizable, allowing dynamic gauges and display customizations that can be saved individually for each car. Having an issue with wheel-spin out of the hairpin? Soften your setup, and monitor your new suspension travel, wheel-spin, and tyre-temps live. Has that change made you faster? Slower? Live data view means you can get the answers immediately.




‘vrHive’ also helps track lap time data, and calculates theoretical best lap times based on your performance in each sector of the track. Lowering the wing made you quicker down the straight, lowering your time in sector 2, but suddenly the twists in sector 3 are causing your lap time to be slower. Is it the whole of sector 3? Or just that one turn? Can you cure the understeer through there while still keeping your wing-angle lower? Telemetry will provide answers, and make you a quicker, better driver.

Using a sophisticated client-server infrastructure, ‘vrHive’ can also be run in an almost endless range of hardware scenarios, from traditional one-screen setups to the most comprehensive network solutions. Have a spare screen or device that you want to utilize to display telemetry data while racing? ‘vrHive’ can do that. Want to analyze lap data with your league buddies around the globe? Done. ‘vrHive’ is the last word in versatile telemetry.

Does all this information at your fingertips sound a bit intimidating? No need to get anxious because getting started with ‘vrHive’ is a doddle thanks to the app-creator MikeyTT’s richly-illustrated and easy-to-follow instruction guide.


‘vrHive’ is designed to work with both the PC and console versions of Project CARS, so there’s absolutely no reason not to give this impressive app a try and begin channeling your inner data engineer. Oh, and it’s also free.

More information with ‘vrHive’, and everything you need to get started, can be found on the Project CARS forums. And while you’re at it, why not check out all the other amazing Project CARS apps on our dedicated apps page as well?
