RaceRoom Racing Experience: Neue Fahrzeuge, Strecken und viele Verbesserungen

Sector3 Studios hat ein umfangreiches Update mit neuen Rennwagen, Strecken sowie Überarbeitungen der Physikengine, des Reifenmodells und vielem mehr für RaceRoom Racing Experience veröffentlicht

(MST/Speedmaniacs.de) - Zum Ausklang des Jahres 2020 hat Sector3 Studios für RaceRoom Racing Experience am 22. Dezember eine neue Version seiner PC-Rennsimulation ausgerollt. Die Downloadgröße von 5,3 GB weist bereits auf einiges an Änderungen hin und auch ein zweiter Blick in das Änderungsprotokoll der Version zeigt, dass entwicklungsseitig einiges geleistet wurde.

RaceRoom Racing Experience

Im V0.9.2.16-Update von RaceRoom Racing Experience steckt einiges an Arbeit Zoom

Zunächst aber gibt es mit dem Audi R8 LMS GT4 (2020), Audi R8 LMS GT3 EVO, Audi R8 LMS GT2 sowie Volkswagen Scirocco Group 2 (1976) und Volkswagen ID. R (je Fahrzeug 3,98 EUR im RaceRoom-Store) erst einmal eine Reihe an neuen Fahrzeugen. Bei den Strecken wurde Brands Hatch um das Grand Prix-Layout erweitert und ebenfalls neu dabei ist Watkins Glen International (4,98 EUR im RaceRoom-Store) mit gleich vier Streckenvarianten.

Auf technischer Seite erweitert das Update die Simulation im Bereich der Physikengine. Zum Beispiel werden nun auch Motorkennfelder und Energierückgewinnungssysteme abgebildet und es gibt einige Verbesserungen in diesem Bereich. Außerdem werden weitere Fahrzeuge auf das aktuelle Reifenmodell (V4.1) aktualisiert. Neben einem neuen Replaymenü gibt es noch Korrekturen im Bereich der AI, Sounds und Streckengrafik. Alle Änderungen im Detail sind wie immer in der nachstehenden Zusammenfassung aufgeführt.

-Added "Prevent false start? option. If set to off, players will be able to jump the start of the race and receive a penalty for doing so.
