I think I'd be really surprised if kunos really releases 1.0 today. I think the netcode and all of its other functionality needs at least half year of development before I'd dare to call it 1.0. It is just a number but it can set a dangerous and not so good precedent imho. I'd like to see more refined physics before 1.0. Solid axle support would be nice for lots of interesting cars. Flatspots would be nice as well as lot of the other things like damage, pitstops, anticheat for online, proper online mode without this "mess of two differently broken online experiences". And they also have the new sound engine coming. I'd imagine that would be top of their list for single reason that they don't need to do the sounds twice for any new cars. Not to mention all the buttons in the gui that do nothing atm. like the career mode and the gui button...
That looks like fun!
Quote from Fordman :@Sinbad....I have found out why people don't drive the Fiat 500 in AC....because it is just as bad in real life. I got given one today as a courtesy car while mine was being serviced....and OMG they are bad...very bad

I'm starting to love Fiat 500 on rally stages like La Mussara, Shomaru or Perygrosse!!
Nice.
I'm so tough now and do my first post into this.
Still struggling with controls and driving in this but I like doing screenshots, though.

Yeah, no Spa.. SLS is ok i guess, sounds are rFactor on/off samples. Not very much feedback going throught that wheel.. Other changes like FFB and tires, are maybe there.. didn't noticed anything major.

Why is both lighting and shadowing completely off in the SLS shot...

Why I can't see any custom apps like RSR livetiming?

Cool, that list was getting unmanageable.
Nevermind some causing slowdowns as well.
i hate mercs but this drives amazing. tons of fun. it does not like bumpy tracks tho
Right...being realistic here and would like all your opinion.....is AC a "racing simulator" or now a posh blonde women's shopping simulator? This is a car I would associate with a lady, that is married to somebody with loads of money, and doing a shop at Marks and Spencer's. Ok I know this is the pace car for a lot of series, but do we want to race at pace car speed?

This car, I would more associate with the game Test Drive, driving around, wind in your hair, catching some rays....not sweating your ass off, trying to beat the next lap record...call me cynical but this is seriously a women's car driven at the speed limit and has shopping bags in the boot....if it has a boot.

Personally, I am getting the feeling that AC is loosing it's grip in where it wants to go and in what direction. To me, the void is being left to the modders, the people that don't get paid to excite everybody else with "real" racing cars.

I am actually not degrading the RWD...for a change, I am giving this a fair chance, but just given you all, my honest opinion.

racing simulator...

racing is just racing to finish first.. it doesnt matter what cars you use.. lawnmowers, shopping trollies, etc..

Including a stop off at a Tesco's Express on the way then

Assetto Corsa. your one stop shop for everthing you need.....HA HA

Given the cars you listed as suggestions for fwd cars to include, I think you're asking for it by calling the sls a woman's car.

Although I suppose you've deleted all those suggestions because they're all slower than "pace car speed"

It's a road car, a GT, not sure what else you'd expect, or why it's a bad choice for the game.

Must say i have to agree. been struggling to get a feel with AC for a while now, but this car (probably due to tyre and ffb tweaks in the patch) feels much more natural to drive.
