Project CARS slitta a Marzo 2015

Oct 17 2014 01:00 PM | VELOCIPEDE in Software

"Il nostro obiettivo è sempre stato quello di assicurare un titolo eccezionale, in grado di soddisfare i desideri e i sogni di tutti i fan dei giochi di corse. Un gioco con feature e contenuti sostenuti dalla community che possa assicurare un vera e indimenticabile esperienza", ha dichiarato Ian Bell, Head of Studio di Slightly Mad Studios.
"Sebbene sia une decisione difficile da prendere, il cambiamento nella data di uscita permette al gioco la più grande possibilità di successo e visibilità e l'opportunità di pulire il gioco ancora di più, per raggiungere quegli standard che sia noi sia la nostra community vogliono. Siamo impazienti di mostrare a tutti quello a cui stiamo lavorando".

Slightly Mad Studios and BANDAI NAMCO Games Europe S.A.S today announced they will be moving the release of Project CARS for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC to March 20th 2015 in Europe and Australasia.
The move positions the title away from the competitive holiday scene dominated by household names while affording the team at Slightly Mad Studios additional time to extend and polish their ground-breaking and accomplished next-gen racing experience that’s been created alongside a community of over 85,000 racing fans and real-life professional drivers.
“Our goal has always been to deliver a landmark title that encompasses the wishes and desires of racing fans from all around the world; something with features and content powered by the community that provide a truly unforgettable and pioneering experience” said Ian Bell, Head of Studio at Slightly Mad Studios. “Whilst a tough decision to make, the change in release date allows the game the greatest chance of success and visibility, and the opportunity to polish the game even further to the high standards that both ourselves and our community demand and expect. We’re eager for you all to see what we’ve been working on in just a few months.”
Project CARS aims to deliver the most authentic, beautiful, intense, and technically-advanced racing game on the planet. Crowd-funded by a passionate community that has been involved in the development process from day-one to create their ultimate racing experience, Project CARS includes the largest track roster of any recent racing game, a huge variety of motorsports to play, a freeform and authentic career mode, world-class graphics and handling, dynamic time of day & weather, and a suite of community features and connectivity that leave the competition behind in the dust.

Il modello gomme di Project CARS

Oct 16 2014 09:50 AM | VELOCIPEDE in Software

Il team Slightly Mad Studios ci spiega, con un dettagliato post sul proprio blog, tutti i dettagli del modello dei pneumatici del suo prossimo Project CARS: il Seta Tire Model. Eccovene un estratto:

Seta Tire Model (STM) is a full dynamic tire simulation. Actually, it is three coupled simulations, one for the tire carcass, one for the tire tread and contact patch, and one for heat transfer simulation. It is also modular, where different carcass and tread simulations techniques can be used interchangeably. For example, off road racing may use a different tread simulation.

F1 2014: intervista a Lee Mather

Oct 16 2014 07:40 AM | VELOCIPEDE in Software

La Codemasters ha pubblicato sul proprio blog ufficiale una interessante intervista fatta a Lee Mather, Senior Games Designer dell'imminente F1 2014. Eccovene un estratto:

This year we’ve seen teams manage their fuel a lot more conservatively this season – has this carried through into the game?
Fuel management has always played a part in our games, but more so than ever this year. There’s a definite sweet spot for driving efficiently whilst still extracting a good level of performance from the engine. Something which people aren’t necessarily aware of is that our extremely advanced fuel simulation model reacts correctly to lifting and coasting. Leaving the car in a higher gear when braking for a corner really helps you to save a significant amount of fuel, as does not hanging on to a gear for too long when accelerating.

Virtual Race Car Engineer: un aiuto per l'a...

Oct 14 2014 06:25 PM | VELOCIPEDE in Software

Report a handling impression of understeer or oversteer, and the recommendations address those conditions directly. Report no handling impression, and the program makes advice based on what the car is saying from its tire data. The algorithms were developed in collaboration with car chiefs and engineers of 20+ years practical experience, and take into account details as specific as underused or overused tires, suboptimal settings, the interaction of different chassis changes, front- or rear-wheel drive car, and even weather conditions.
Not only will you go faster in the garage and faster on the track now, but ultimately become a master of "Setup Fu".
With each run on the Virtual Race Car Engineer software you describe a condition specific to your own lap settings and results, and receive the recommendations and explanations to address those very experiences. Over time and use you will come to understand the subtle effects of chassis changes as they've related to your own needs and use, and with that knowledge become the master.
The Virtual Race Car Engineer includes numerous tools: Lap Wizard, Corner Wizard, Garage Manager.
Lap Wizard - Enter the car settings and results from a good test lap, report your handling impression, and the Lap Wizard recommends setup options and changes. Save your cars and tracks, setups and settings, test laps and results, to be recalled at any time. Reuse them as the basis for further test runs.
Corner Wizard - A "quick tip" tool for sussing out the possible setup changes to correct a variety of handling conditions on a given corner.
Garage Manager - Manage your saved cars, tracks and setups. Recall and reuse them as the basis for further testing runs. Reference them at any time, race days, track days.
