I hope those aren't shopped because they are simply amazing. At the speed Kunos works I doubt we will see this in 2012 though. The feel and physics of his projects are second to none IMO. I'll definately be keeping an eye on this. I already subscribed to his mailing list.
Well if you honestly think about it, it's not going to take much physics-wise, as they have all that in the works from previous stuff (nKp and FVA). The bulk of things will be coming in terms of content (which looks to be in progress already). The graphics already looked to be overhauled as well. Notice the site says "team" and not just Kunos himself, so I don't think it will have the slow progression like nKp.
Does anyone know if we're gonna be able to buy the game once it's finished? Because I will happily pay a lot for a good sim, I won't even think of playing something that will cost me a tenner a month though!
Anyways, that lotys 49 looks great. I think winged single seaters have been the best part of nkpro. Cars with no downforce or no wings have not. I think the f1800 is not very good and the 1600 is good but nothign amazing imho. Kind of difficult to predict how the lotus is going to be...
I wonder if netkar2 (which is what it is really) will have the same dodgy setups that bear correlation to actual numbers, measurements and forces? That has annoyed me no end trying to set a car up with 16mm ride height only to have it rubbing on the track constantly.
