Hey there folks, another update with some great news.
You read on my latest update that the RUF RGT-8 was announced and I’ve shown you some pics that the developers shared with us, well now I can show you pics taken by myself ingame showing the car in its full glory, you can check them below.

Theres also some extra good news, out of nowhere the developers presented us with another BMW, this time the BMW M3 E92 GT4 and even tho its not a full detailed version like the RUF RGT-8 it still looks stunning, still in a early stage of development.

Both vehicles will be available in the next build coming out Friday!

Martin Griffiths, one of the Render Coders behind the Madness Engine also been working his butt off these past weeks with a huge amount of bug fixes and new features to increase the quality even further. If you think this game already looks good, the next incoming features will just blow your mind!

That’s all for now, hope you guys enjoyed!

Hi again, not sure this time where to start with to be honest.. so much has happened recently.

There has been a huge optimization been made to the Madness Engine by the developer Martin Griffiths in order to give a better performance and to kill some annoying bugs that have been haunting us for quite some time.
Physics have been improved as well in many of the cars currently available and it has been a blast to drive some of them.

Andy Tudor, the Creative Director behind Project CARS did an interview recently for NowGamer where he spoke about the Wii U version and from what I see around the web it has caused a huge ruckus, I advise everyone interested into giving it a read.

The first cut of the SDK/API for Project CARS has also been released, this will allow many developers to create amazing apps to interact with Project CARS.
There’s also a lot of hints around the web about Project CARS and Oculus Rift support, recently Andy Tudor posted an intriguing sentence at his Twitter in response to a news post @ VirtualR.
We may or may not be looking forward to the @Oculus3D ;-) Oculus Rift ? Racing Game Testing Started ? VirtualR ? Sim Racing News … #WMDCars #SlightlyMadTeam
Two new cars coming soon to Project CARS, the 2012 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X FQ-400 & the Ford Racing Mustang BOSS 302R1, both in a very early stage of development are going to be introduced within the project in order to test their physics, so there won’t be any pictures of it yet to be shown for now, further ahead when they are more complete in terms of visuals you will surely start seeing images/videos of them around the web.

To end this up and since there hasn’t been any images to show I leave you with a new trailer by our Community member Plm5.

Hey there everyone, this will be the last update of March so here’s what happened recently in Project CARS.

The Project CARS - API (Application Programming Interface) was released, it allows the game to communicate with third party devices, giving programmers and hardware designers endless possibilities to make their product work with Project CARS.
The API feeds telemetry & other data to devices such as tachometers, motion simulators, buttkickers, shift lights and much more. Some members been working already in order to get this working with their smartphones and tablets and so far I must say some of their work has been quite impressive for such short time since the release of the API.

Last week I’ve mentioned the two new vehicles coming to Project CARS, the Mustang Boss 302R & the Evo X FQ-400 both in their very wip states were in no shape back then to be shown but now we can give you a glimpse of these two new addition (beware there is still a lot of work to be done)

As a Easter Egg the developers added a small contest where the community members had to find some hidden eggs around the track and the hunt has been quite exciting so far, but it didn’t quite achieve the happiness we had when we found a hidden track, based on the Old Spa Francorchamps that looks amazing so far even tho its still a early WIP.

Screenshots by PLM5 aka Chromatic9

There has been also some rumours about a mobile (Android, IOS) version, this is still not confirmed but if true it will mean Project Cars will add a new platform to the release.

To end up I will leave you all with an amazing new trailer by our community member Jonz, music by Project Cars Composer Dr. Stephen Baysted.

Hope you all have enjoyed, the pCARS community wishes you all a Happy Easter.

Hi everyone, been a long time since i last posted. The main reason for this was the lack of any major news I could post for you guys to read, but now I’m able to do so and you guys will just go nuts for sure.

Let’s begin with the best one so far, the FSA issues are now solved!

That’s right folks, they allowed SMS to keep on going with the World of Mass Development but with some small changes to the system for the future Projects in order to fulfill the regulations imposed by the FSA. These changes will be known in the upcoming weeks when another announcement will be made and the announcement will be….

(Drums please!)

Project CARS goes to NEXT-GEN Consoles!
SMS is now an official developer for Playstation 4 and probably also to Durango (Xbox720) once it comes out, the development will be a side Project and will be known in the next weeks how you can participate in it.

As if this wasn’t enough already more great news were shared with us by the Slightly Mad Team, Mercedes is now officially licensed and will include the following babies!

1952 300 SL W194
1971 300SEL 6.8 AMG 'Rote Sau'
1989 Sauber C9
1990 190E 2.5-16 Evolution 2 (DTM racing version)
1998 CLK-LM
2012 SLS AMG GT3
2012 C-Class Coupe DTM
2013 A45 AMG
2010 SLS AMG Coupé
Are you enjoying the news so far? Hope so, because it isn’t over yet :D !

A major update in the physics department was also announced, coming this week with a improvement tread model called FlashTread will bring the following features:
* "grip" broken out into deformation, adhesive, viscous, tack, and tear models
* flash effect (temperature variance through the contact patch at asperity level)
* curing (race tires are not typically delivered fully cured)
* water, including hydroplaning (which happens organically)
* loose material model (for gravel, sand, dirt, etc)
* tread wear (and flat spots do just fall out)
And much, much more :)

It’s still not over guys!

The developers also announced a new Formula to compete in Project CARS, the Formula C. After last week release of the Formula Gulf 1000 they mentioned that there would be another formula to compete with and this week they shown us the first prototype of the new car to participate which looks amazing but due to its early WIP state I’m not able to show it …yet.

There’s also a new sun flare tech introduced recently that is able to produce some of the most amazing flares we have seen so far in a game, still in a early state they will change and adapt to the weather conditions and time of the day giving you a lot of variety in terms of visuals, they just look amazing and you can see that by yourselves in the 2 images below taken by our community members Kmax1 and Kelnor34.

We also celebrated recently 1000 members in our Steam Group, all the important news and events are posted there in a regular basis so if you want to know everything first hand be sure to check it out, its open for everyone to join and you can also talk with us in the Group Chat.

That’s all for now, hope you all enjoyed these great news and see you soon!
