Project CARS: Mehr als 100 brandneue Screenshots und neues Build 451Project CARS: Mehr als 100 brandneue Screenshots und neues Build 451  ZoomProject CARSBilder vom 19.04.13Das derzeit bei Slightly Mad Studios in London entstehende Rennspiel Project CARS wird kontinuierlich weiterentwickelt. Für alle World of Mass Development-Mitglieder die über den Status "Team Member+" oder besser verfügen ist nun ein neues Build testbereit.

Die Pre-Alpha-Version 451 zeichnet sich vor allem durch Optimierungen bei den Fahrzeugen aus. Aber auch an der Grafikengine, den Strecken und vielen anderen Bereichen wurde gearbeitet. Wie immer gibt das detaillierte Changelog genau Auskunft über die einzelnen Änderungen.

Betrachten lassen sich die jüngsten Fortschritte auch auf über 100 neuen Screenshots zu Project CARS die verschiedene Autos und Strecken zeigen und sowohl die Detailverliebtheit der Entwickler als auch den aktuellen Stand der Grafikqualität dokumentieren.

Build 451 (19/4/13, Team Member+)
-Code to match up the dynamic and static emap lod scalers. Fixes issue with lighting in FE

-GraphicsConfig support for MaximumFrameLatency (save/load and GUI runtime hookup)

-Triangles changed to pentagons on old flare secondary elements. needed for when we have selectable flares

-Smartphone idle + action. New anims

-Bathurst: Added concrete stripe on left of pit exit ,added missing armco ends, adjusted road and kerbs as mentioned by Gustavo to increase the specular effect on roads and decrease it on kerbs

-BMW M3 E30: Improvements to lights and light surrounds
-BMW M3 E30: Added projected light onto headlight surrounds
-BMW M1: Tweaked lights textures
