    Assetto Corsa: ecco la Maserati MC12

    Dopo l'Audi R8 LMS 2016 e l'Audi TT RS VLN, la Kunos Simulazioni ci presenta oggi la mitica e spettacolare Maserati MC12, vettura del 2004 protagonista e trionfatrice in vari campionati GT. Anche la MC12 sarà fra le nuove auto protagoniste del prossimo Ready to Race DLC, in arrivo il 18 maggio per Assetto Corsa.
    The Maserati MC12 entered production in 2004 as a base for the racing variant to compete in the GT Championship. In fact, one requirement for participation in the GT Championship was the production of at least 25 road cars; so 25 cars were produced in 2004 and another 25 in 2005. The car was based on the Enzo Ferrari chassis and gearbox, mounting a variant of the Ferrari V12 engine.
    The racing results of the racing version were magnificent. The Maserati MC12 GT1 team managed to finish second and third in their debut race and went onto winning the next round's race. In their second year, Maserati won the Manufacturers Cup with a great point gap, and continued to compete at great level in the years which followed. In total, it participated in 94 races, winning 40 of them.
    The "Ready To Race" DLC pack will be available to purchase May 18th on Steam and will be coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in the near future.

    Formula VR Simulators cockpit

    La olandese FormulaVR ha presentato ufficialmente il suo nuovo Formula VR Simulators cockpit, un simulatore di guida dinamico dedicato alle monoposto dotato di sistema di movimento basato sul 3DOF (ovvero 3 gradi di libertà) ed una inedita soluzione con casco Arai per il visore Oculus Rift. Tutti i dettagli qui di seguito, con annesso video di anteprima.
    With great pride we introduce the next level single seater style full motion race simulator; the F-VR1.
    The F-VR1 is a unique and stylish full motion simulator aimed for professional home use. Just like the F-VR2 and F-VR3 its a hand made and custom build race simulator. Its designed and engineered in-house specifically for formula style race cars like F1, F2, F3, F4, GP3, Formula E, Formula Renault,  Indycar, Indy lights, Super Formula etc.
    The F-VR1 is a beautifully designed and hand build Formula1 style monocoque that replicates the ergonomics and compactness of an Formula1 or single seater racing car. The level of detail is very important to complete the ultimate thrill that titles like iRacing, Rfactor2,  Asseto corsa, RaceRoom, Project Cars, Automobilista and Formula1 2016 are offering on screens, projection or VR glasses.”
    One of many unique features of the F-VR range is that it allows a wide variety of postures, while offering them all the same single seater racing experience. Besides a quick release on the formula steering wheel it has a premium ForceFeedBack base that can be moved out of the cockpit aperture to allow maximum entry and exit if required.”
    Adding to these wide ergonomic settings, is the fully customisable formula style pedal-box that can be adjusted in length just like a real formula1 race car.

    The F-VR1 full motion simulator features 3 ultra fast actuators (3 dof *) that replicates all road surface details and bumps from the laser scanned race tracks from all over the world, VR-FullMotion™ System The F-VR1 full motion simulator also features our unique VR-TractionLoss™ oversteer system for even more detailed handling feedback.
    The F-VR1 full motion simulator features a unique in-house development that replicates the loss of traction during harsh acceleration or oversteer moments; VR-TractionLoss™. The F-VR handmade monocoque is moved side ways by a ultra fast actuator allowing the drivers senses to respond more quickly to this situation, resulting in a better chance to keep the single seater on the track and improve his response time.
    The F-VR1 motion simulator is, as standard, equiped with our unique VR-BeltForce™ system. During hard braking the belts put pressure onto the drivers body replicating G-forces generated during braking in a real Formula car.
    The F-VR simulators are all equiped with a easy entry steering system. By rotating it out of the cockpit area a larger opening is created allowing for easy entry and exit. The super robust and strong steering mounting system is also capable of mounting Direct Drive steering systems like Leo bodner’s Simsteering®
    The F-VR1 and F-VR2 are equipped with a advanced VR-TrackVibe system to replicate even the finest vibration in the car. Vibrations of the 4 wheels and engine are being transferred into the monocoque to literally feel the tarmac and being able to quiclky respond to it.
    HelmetVR has a perfect system wide integration with FormulaVR. The Tracker for instance is nicely integrated into the formula1 style motion simulator the F-VR1. Feeling the monocoque around you, the HelmetVR on you head brings you as close to the track as possible.

    Nuova versione aggiornata per il SimXperience SimVibe

    La SimXperience ha rilasciato la nuova versione aggiornata del suo software SimVibe, che sfrutta le vibrazioni audio dei simulatori per fornire un feedback dinamico a sistemi come i famosi ButtKicker. Fra le novità dell'ultima release del SimVibe, troviamo effetti completamente nuovi e specifici dedicati al motore ed al sovrasterzo, come si può notare dal video di anteprima qui sotto.
    SimXperience SimVibe - New Engine & Oversteer Effects
    SimXperience SimVibe is an advanced, multi-dimensional audio based feedback software (for racing simulators and cockpits) that utilizes one to eight bass transducers (ButtKickers, Bass Shakers, etc..) to provide the correct physics based vibrations at each corner of your simulator and throughout the simulator. This greatly enhances immersion and drivability. It's a great companion to our already immersive motion simuators but can be applied to motionless simulators as well. You'll feel every available detail of the road surface, engine and transmission in the correct placement on your simulator via 3D spatial vibrations and reverberations.
    How Does It Work
    Simply connect one or more ButtKickers / Bass Shakers to your simulator as you normally would and install the Sim Commander Lite (SimVibe) on your Windows 7 PC. Our software does the rest and provides you with true physics based detail throughout your cockpit and complete control of your vibratory feedback experience. http://simxperience.com/en-us/products/simvibe/simvibesoftware.aspx

    DiRT 4: "be fearless" dev diary

    La Codemasters ci propone oggi un nuovo video diario di sviluppo dedicato al suo prossimo DiRT 4: questa volta sono gli stessi piloti professionisti che hanno collaborato allo sviluppo del gioco a spiegarci tutti i dettagli ed esprimere la loro opinione. Ecco quindi cosa ne pensano Peter Solberg e Kris Meeke.
    World renowned drivers talk about beating their fears to finish ahead in latest DiRT 4 trailer
    Want to understand the true meaning of ‘being fearless’? Watch our brand new DiRT 4 trailer where world class professional rally and rallycross drivers – including Kris Meeke, double FIA World RX World Champion Petter Solberg, and the Hansen brothers – talk about how they compete against fear as they push to go faster and finish on the top step of the podium. The new video reflects DiRT 4’s Be Fearless tagline and is available to view right now:
    DiRT 4 puts you at the wheel of some of the world’s most iconic and powerful off-road vehicles, as you test yourself against the road and the elements in a battle against the clock. There is also multi-car racing in rallycross and landrush, where you will have to be brave (and fast!) in order to take the chequered flag.

    World renowned rally driver Kris Meeke, who worked as a handling consultant on DiRT 4 commented: “You have to forget about the fear factor. It’s purely about winning or losing. That’s the real special element in rally.”
    Two-time FIA World Rallycross champion and DiRT 4 handling consultant Petter Solberg said: “If you believe in yourself a lot, you know you will jump in the car again and be fast… I won three races in a row after probably the biggest ever accident in rally. It’s about how much you want it!”

    Featuring two different handling models, Gamer and Simulation, DiRT 4 offers both depth and accessibility for players old and new to the franchise. The game’s innovative Your Stage system allows you to produce a near infinite number of unique rally stages at the touch of a button – allowing more experienced players to create longer, more technical routes, whilst newcomers can create simpler shorter routes as they hone their skills.

    Assetto Corsa Console Community Update (V 1.14)

    La Kunos Simulazioni ha pubblicato l'ultimo community update riguardante la versione console di Assetto Corsa. A breve sarà disponibile la release v1.14 che, oltre all'attesa feature delle lobby private, porterà con sè anche numerose migliorie, aggiornamenti e novità, come spiegato qui di seguito.   Console Community Update (V 1.14) Hi everyone! Today, we wanted to give our console community a rundown on what to expect in our next major console update. As many of you know, we were hoping to release in April, but despite our best efforts, it just wasn’t possible. However, be rest assured, we’re pushing incredibly hard right now to get this update out to you as soon as possible and we hope to share a launch date with you all soon.   CONSOLE UPDATE V 1.14 NOTES Featuring all-new FREE bonus content, including 5 cars, as well as our home made Highlands track! The perfect track doesn’t exist. That’s why we created one. AUDI QUATTRO S1 E2 Introduced back in 1984, the Audi Sport Quattro S1 E2 revolutionized rallying. Just like the other manufacturers, Audi used the lenient homologation requirements to create a new rally car. All the car maker needed for homologation was a production run of a mere 200 cars. Blomqvist's spectacular, sideways driving style suited the Sport quattro perfectly. By flicking the tail out, the Swede overcame the natural understeer of the nose-heavy Audi. He won five of the twelve rounds and was crowned the 1984 World Champion. Mikkola and Roehrl also won a round, which was enough to clinch the constructor's trophy. MAZDA MX5 NA The Mazda MX5 NA was presented in Chicago on February 1989. Provided with an all-steel body shell and a light-weight aluminium hood, in Japan it was sold as Eunos Roadster. MAZDA 787B Back in 1991, Mazda became the first Japanese manufacturer to win the 24 hours of Le Mans, with the Mazda 787B. This Group C sports prototype weighed in at just 845kg and was capable of reaching top speeds of over 340 km/h, as well as producing 690bhp at 8000rpm, thanks to its Wankel rotary engine. BMW M4 AKRAPOVIC The M4's engine brace, trunk lid and the roof are all made of Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) to shed pounds. But the real masterpiece for both is the CFRP driveshaft — a one-piece unit that offers exceptional strength while reducing rotating mass, resulting in a tighter drive with less counteractive momentum. The Evolution performance exhaust system for the BMW consists of a single-central muffler with valves and bigger link pipe tubes with a middle muffler, all designed to make the performance and workmanship of the Evolution as perfect as its looks. In-depth engineering has produced a sound completely different from the stock system, giving a deep and sporty sound. LAMBORGHINI GALLARDO SL Step3 What do you get if you unleash some dedicated tuners on the Gallardo engine? A bi-turbo highly modified engine that is capable of doing more than 850bhp on pump fuel and more than 1200bhp on race fuel and full turbo boost. The chassis has also been tuned accordingly with stiffer springs and dampers all around. Nevertheless you better watch out when you decide to give full boost. The performance is simply out of this world and the car can spin all four tyres in curva grande at monza in 6th gear... Remember, you need to brake 1 to 2 km before every turn as it takes some space to slow down from ultrasonic speeds! PORSCHE PACK #3 CAR: PORSCHE 911 RSR 2017 Available as a free update for the PORSCHE PACK 3 DLC, the 2017 Le Mans and WEC racing machine produces around 510bhp at 8000rpm. This brand new Porsche GTE/GTLM racecar has been designed from scratch, and features an ultra-modern, flat-six engine positioned in front of the rear axle. HIGHLANDS LAYOUTS The perfect track doesn’t exist. That’s why we created one. Highlands - The original layout, 8152 meters long, filled with fast flowing path with curves and several jumps. Highlands Long - An extension of the original layout, 12191 meters long and has all the characteristics of the original layout. This layout features some slower curves, a fast series of left and right turns, after a passage between rocks and the distinctive 3km long "Cabhag straight" Highlands Drift - A configuration born to create long powerslides with supercars and hypercars. At 5167 meters long, this layout features long, flat and smooth curves, perfect for holding a constant power slide. The "tower lùb", guards the surroundings at the top of the hill. Highlands Short - The shortest configuration, only 1714 meters, but based entirely inside the city. Incredibly intense and requires the concentration of a pro. All four layouts share the same starting positions and pit lane, as well as the first corner and final 2 corners.   UPGRADED PHYSICS ENGINE * Updated minimum pressures and optimum pressures for various cars. * New v10 tyre wear algorithms more sensitive to load for all cars. * Graining is now reducing when driving in good temperature conditions. * New and updated V10 street, semislick, vintage, and race slicks tyres for all cars. A total of 151 cars updated. * Updates for cars that already had V10 tyres. * Updated chassis balance and inertias for all 151 available cars. * Updated engine coast braking for street cars. * Updated Brake heat for the following cars * Shelby Cobra * Lamborghini Miura * Alfa Romeo GTA * Abarth 595 * Ford Escort RS * Ford GT40 * Lotus 25 * Lotus 49 * Maserati 250F 6C and 12C * Lotus 72D * Ferrari 312T * Ferrari F40   COCKPIT VIEW ADJUSTMENT It will be possible to adjust and customize the cockpit view during a game session.   CUSTOM LOBBIES Initialize a new server instance with custom configuration.
