You're the MVP in this thread.
Thanks!
Great looking progress, looking forward to trying out the new lighting system.
I got inspired by the new images and decided to use them as menu background. Heart

Quote from scania :will KY have non track road like BL & WE?

I don't think so. I think they are mainly updating the materials and cleaning the tracks up a bit, modernizing them for the new graphics engine. You can see in the pics that both Aston and KY looks to be strictly the race track still. And both blackwood and westhill was elaborated on before the graphics updates were being implemented Smile
I think the same. But I do like the simplicity of it. Less is more.
Quote from ymeshulin :What I am seeing is a major drop in the Oval's banking, which should provide for much better racing.

No idea where you see it,in comparision shot is well visible that there is no change to banking parameters. http://imx.tc-g.uk/ky201904/05
Also how that could contribute to better racing?
What part of the track is this?

It's where KY3 exits from oval ring.
Ky3r t5
I see it now
I've noticed the logo:

Does that mean that the VW Scirocco is going to be included in t-h-e future update? Big grin
Outdated physics were the only reason why it wasn't released, and I think its quite obvious new physics will be in 0.7. Anyway good catch, that logo kinda makes it 99.9% sure Smile
Except the Volkswagen logos are already on Westhill Shrug

indeed they are present since a long time, but as there is a high chance the new physics may be released among the graphic update, this is clearly giving the feeling that we may see the VW coming with the upcoming release ^^
To be honest, I suppose we may face first some serious test patch sessions for Eric and Scawen's pleasure ( Ya right ) before we actually see the VWS in the official patch ...
Totally forgot about it...

VW Scirocco went out of production in the meantime, so it really isn't important any more whether it will be included or not any time in the future.
It would be nice too have tho
Quote from Flame CZE :Except the Volkswagen logos are already on Westhill Shrug

I hope the car in the right corner is drivable Omg omg omg
Quote from ymeshulin :You're right, actually. Maybe I have never seen that corner from this angle, which got me confused.

Lower banking would lower the maximum speed possible. This would create bigger separation of cars in the race, which is golden, as with the ridiculously overblown slipstream effect, current racing at Kyoto is hardly realistic or enjoyable.

It is true that it is hardly enjoyable...

... But we need bigger banking
Quote from sermilan :VW Scirocco went out of production in the meantime, so it really isn't important any more whether it will be included or not any time in the future.

It is important seeing as it's more content being added.
indeed, and it will be a modern FWD with a very low rpm turbo action (max torque between 1700 and 5000rpm, almost a diesel), ESP that cannot be deactivated, huge tire width as usual (235! , modern FWD ....) ...
Clearly great for close racing if interested.
A kind of 130i to fight against would be nice Big grin
Quote from CozmicDragon :I highly believe so. However, demo racers could be locked to fixed time of day only, and require a license to access the full 24-hour day/night cycle. I'm not a demo user anymore so it's not really my problem, but still, don't get your hopes too high.

Quote from Stölzel :Thats a nice Idea.
Demo-Racers are limited to only Day (ex. 11AM) and Night (ex. 18PM) while we Licensed Racers can set the time to what we want (Hours and Minutes).
Also if there will be Weather. So Demo-Racers only have Sunny, Cloudy and maybe Fog while Licensed Racers have the full platte of all the Weather incl. Rain, Snow(?) etc.

i agree. this should be in suggestions.
a valid good idea actually.
Quote from THE WIZARD DK :i agree. this should be in suggestions.
a valid good idea actually.

+1
P.S Agree with the advice it should be in suggestions as well.
Quote from BeNoM :It is important seeing as it's more content being added.

It's also important since it is a benchmark for the physics. As far as I've understood.
