What are we working on right now? [17 December 2015]


#41

Getting really excited for this update, even though I just got the game a little under a week ago! It’s such a well made game!


#42

<3


#43

I don’t mean to be that guy, but when is the update projected to be out? Later this week or next week?


#44

There was a facebook announcement when the first video of the new update went up on 18th February that said it would be out in a month, which gives us a tentative update date of 18th March. However, don’t take that to be set in stone because there could be all sorts of unforeseen problems that delay the update.


#45

I must have missed that video! Thanks though!


#46

The date wasn’t said in the video, it was said in the announcement on facebook. it was the ‘bigger cars’ video where they showed a car with a very big I6 engine fitted.


#47

Whe can use the own cars in the test track?


#48

Firstly sorry if this in the wrong section but seemed like the right area to ask but if it’s not sorry.

[list]*]Aerodynamics options and calculations - For the undercarriage, you’ve got plans for like full or partial body underlay for aerodynamics but could you also give options for like sump guards, transmission and transfer case guards for 4wd models? Maybe as there referred to “Bash plates”???

*]Driving aids / safety / interior tab (Things like TC, ABS, Airbags, Leather seats, that kind of thing) - I’ve viewed the video for this and was wondering will there be more detailed options? As in, when u pull back the car on the slider to reveal each stage of the car so body on, down to chassis, down to wheels etc, will we be able to see inside the interior like the very early Automation demo? Will there be link different sub heading so say under basic you have a sub head to chose so like vinyl flooring, basic radio? Cloth seats? seatbelts? OR for the more upclass models, sat nav, surround sound system and with these will they just be up to out imagination to view these or will these actually be modelled into the car so you can actually see the completed interior?

Status:
Car stat calculations have been revamped and are currently testing, new bodies are being designed, as well as new chassis types and suspension types. For suspension will there be an option for a solid “live” axel for the front end, so we can have real 4wd’s? Like with solid axel on the back and front??? That be sweet :slight_smile: As a body suggestion can you design some mid sized and large suv’s??? Instead of just cars??

Estimated time of release?
Roughly late February to early March. (Very rough.) WIll this be released as another patch update for players who have pre-ordered

Some of these questions I can answer, others I’ll have to leave to the Core team to answer.

For the interior question, the goal for the interior at the time of the release is that the interior can be seen in some kind of “shadow view”, but the details like cloth, leather, etc. Will not be shown.

I’m not sure about the final suspension types, but more are coming. As for the body suggestion, yes, there will be mid-sized and large SUV’s as well as sedans/coupes. There may even be a pickup body.

Finally, yes, as per any other patch release, it will be released as another update to the launcher for anyone who has pre-ordered. Although you can download it as an update from the launcher itself, we always suggest that you guys try and download the torrent for the update that will be uploaded, as it takes some of the load of the servers that are running everything.

Hope that answers all of your questions!

I’m starting to annoy some friends by how often I talk about this game. You guys are awesome.


#51

I notice that the thread says it has been updated recently, but the estimated release date for the next update is still late feb/early march. does this mean the next update is imminent, or have you just forgotten to update the release date estimate? There isn’t much of early march left and I don’t want to get my hopes up of an imminent release (even of an open beta) if there wont be one for a while


#52

I agree reaper, it is annoying and the tension kills, some-what. I would not mind much if it will take longer then that, but please just tell us.


#53

In one of the latest Youtube videos it was told that there will be at least a 1-2 week delay because of the unplanned addition of the test track feature.


#54

Thanks mate.


#55

Thanks, I must have missed that. I guess it means that, assuming there are no other problems, we can expect the update in mid to late march then?


#56

End of March sounds about right. After that release the Aussies will probably start moving to NZ, then we’ll work a bit more on game flow and car designer scenarios for the next big update and then we polish things up for the big Early Access release.


#57

Can’t wait :slight_smile:


#58

Do you have a date of the next update? Will the next update include the test track?


#59

I believe that the next update will be out by the end of the month, plus or minus a week or so. I also believe that it WILL include the track. (I’m sooo exited for it.)


#60

Yeah. So nice.i can’t wait
