    There was only one brief mention of it in the forums, so I'm creating a real thread for this because it really deserves it.

    Are they ever going to finish it? How many years has it been in early access? 3 or 4 I think.


      I will wait on early access games, I bought Next car game (Wreakfest) years ago and its still in early access.


        Bought this in 2015 summer sale, progress is as slow as wreckfest and star citizen but this sure better than something like the new car crashing game from supposedly ex burnout dev...

        Too bad they refuse to use steam workshop to accommodate modding though they insist on their own launcher packaging.
        I guess it's the trend nowdays with games; either you are a hardcore PC GAME, or you live long enough to see yourself become a console port


          rubber cars! that looks neat. ill bite
          my graphics card is now a physx card ;
          my cpu is a quad toaster


            Wow, so this will have realistic physics AND a fully open world full of various terrain to drive over?

            AND Crysis type graphics (they're shown in the video)?

            Definitely looks interesting.


              Early access, I wish there was a time limit they put on these things so they don't DayZ your life away or Star citizen milk the money until they dissolve into nothing.

                  I wonder if you can mod the game to put Paul Walker and his buddy driving in there.
                  I have nothing witty to say.


                    too soon?

                      Is there any actual game here or is it just a physics simulator sandbox?

                      I'd love to see an off-road racing game using this engine.

                      Edit: I'll answer my own questions since I bought the game.

                      There is no career mode yet(its in the works) BUT there are lots of missions or tasks to do.

                      There is plenty of off road racing but its mainly against the clock or against the terrain.

                        There is a demo. Not sure how good it as since I bought into the early access a few days ago.

                        I gotta say, this is the most impressive driving sim I think I ever played, and I think I've tried them all.

                        Soft body physics are a token bonus to me, it's the handling and physics that really standout. They are the most real to date for on and off road.

                        If you are a sim driving person, you owe it to yourself to try this game.

                        The menus and alterations you can do to the vehicles are pretty smart and varied too.

                          Yeah I definitely found a ton of fun with this game a while back messing around with it, started to run like **** in the later iterations on my old system though.

                            Development Sneak Peek #3 is out. Some impressive stuff. Engine and exh rocking. Tire flex fixed. Nos!!! New map. Chassis flex and torque.

                              Wow some of that stuff is REALLY starting to get impressive. The engine rocking in the last video translating to the exhaust is awesome. So many little real details. The solid axle torquing the truck was crazy too. Really need to pick this up.

                                Jeez, another MAJOR update.

                                  So is this ever going to translate into a sick racing game with all this tech at some point, or is it only going to be a sandbox game? The tech looks amazing, but at this point it seems like there's hardly any "game" to it.
                                  Let him not vow to walk in the dark, who has not seen the nightfall.

                                          I really wonder if they managed to get the car dynamics right. The cars are extremely difficult to drive, they under steer and starts to skid too easily. I often get that total 180 degree skid at 30 km/h, that's outside school speed.

                                          Especially the cop car is like driving a bar of soap, it has no grip at all and can start to skid for nothing. Also the suspension is like it wouldn't have any dampers at all. If you come into a curve at 70 km/h it is almost impossible to keep it on the road because there is no grip. If you would put this car in real life it would be deadly and forbidden on the market. Luckily this is not how it is in real life. I have driven in 160 km/h in quite sharp turns and the car can handle it. In 70 km/h real cars don't suddenly loose grip on a dry day and at that speed is like a soft Sunday driving.

                                          Just for comparison take the Youtube channel 77km/h.
                                          and you'll see that most cars can handle sharp turns and pretty impressively too.

                                          Also for computer games they have to augment the driver dynamics in order to make it more user friendly. Try drive your real car with the arrow keys.

                                          Thumbs down for the driving dynamics in this game.

                                              BS answers from the developers I would say. You really have to augment the handling for PC games as well as tuning the controls. If you have a 600 hp car you usually don't floor th gas pedal because that would make the wheels spin and you have to buy new tires all the time. This is what the up arrow does and the car lose the grip.

                                                    Vehicle Systems NOTE
                                                    We’ve changed how you interact with the vehicle’s ignition system. If you want to start the engine, hold the V key (by default) until the engine turns on. Pressing it once will toggle through different ignition states, but won’t engage the starter motor.
                                                    • Revamped Ignition System
                                                      • All ignition levels (0 - Off, 1 - Accessories only. 2 - On, 3 - Starter active) are now freely accessible
                                                      • Press V (by default) to toggle between states 0-2 and hold V to start the engine
                                                      • In-vehicle screens react to igntion level changes dynamically
                                                      • Improved general UI messages about ignition levels and engine state
                                                      • EVs now properly react to ignition levels too
                                                      • In Arcade mode, the car will automatically enter the correct state to drive away if asked to do so
                                                      • Improved stall warning and automatic restart

                                                      • The blending of braking methods (regenerative brakes and friction brakes) has been improved so that the brake pedal feels more like a gas-powered vehicle
                                                      • Added a new section to the Pie menu (under the “Powertrain” section) to adjust how strong the regenerative braking is when lifting off of the throttle (without pressing the brakes)
                                                      • Added a “1-Pedal Driving” feature when the regenerative braking strength is at the highest level
                                                        • This feature allows the car to come to a complete stop without needing to touch the brake pedal. The brakes are held automatically until the throttle pedal is pressed again.

                                                      • Axles can be connected to the air source either individually or multiple at once
                                                      • Air pressure of connected axles can be raised and lowered
                                                    • Reduced animation speed of automatic shifters

                                                    • Improved DCT downshift behavior under heavy braking
                                                    • Automatically reduced maximum upshift RPM based on potentially installed rev-limiter

Please note that this feature is still work in progress and not yet available for all vehicles and under all conditions

Disabling compression will significantly increase replay file sizes, but will also eliminate noticeable jitter in node positions. This issue was most visible at high speeds while in cockpit view and is unrelated to the type of jitter suffered by loose parts (and which still benefits from higher FPS and slowmo)
