Assetto Corsa Competizione

Beitrag von Uwe Hellwig » Feb 27, '18, 12:40

wie viel ja schon mitbekommen haben wird es ab sommer diesen jahres Assetto Corsa Competizione als Early Access geben. ich habe mich nur durch diverse foren gelesen um mal aktuelle infos zu bekommen. vieles steht nun mal offen im raum.

fakt ist, acc ist nicht ac2. acc ist/wird ein reines GT3 game sein mit der 2018ner Blancpain- / SRO- Lizenz. Auch DLCs sind fragwürdig. über die modbarkeit scheiden sich die geister. einschlägige seiten/foren verneinen jedoch die möglichkeit des moddens da nun mal die FIA b.z.w. Blancpain- / SRO-Lizenz mit drin steckt (siehe R3E). sollte es DLCs geben dann bestenfalls zur angleichung der jeweiligen saison/lizenz (neue strecken, neue GT3 fahrzeuge z.b. 2019).

Aktueller Stand: Offizielles Statement von Marco Massarutto

Features & content
- Driver swaps confirmed
- They will use the 2018 season for the content
- There will be 10 circuits (you can find them on the Blancpain calendar:
- Official leaderboards (basically RSR inside the game)
- Ranking system for both skill and safety similar to iRacing (he mentions the latest GranTurismo's one). They hired the guy behind Minorating for this
- They will follow their philosophy, so the handling will be realistic (as it was in AC)
- Tyre model, aero and suspension geometry will be improved thanks to new developers that have been hired in the last year (one of them is also a mechanical engineer)
- ACC will be more versatile and easier to use for people with less experience (which doesn't mean less realism)

Pricing & release
- Early Access (beta version) at a lower price than the release one
- No release date announced, not even approximately

On Unreal Engine 4
- Choice of UE4 was driven by desire of focusing on the features that were lacking in AC1, basically "gameplay features" like implementing the various RL regulations, better career mode, better AI etc. (He supports this decision by saying that Kunos' competitors, even though with a way bigger workforce, have decided to avoid writing an Engine by themselves)
- They have worked 8 months during 2017 on R&D testing the Unreal Engine, Marco says that it has been an huge risk because they still didn't know if UE4 was the right choice. He mentions as an example the need to do separate renders for the mirrors, which they had trouble to implement initially as UE4 engine is "general" and not geared towards sim use. This required weeks of telemetry of how it works, how it uses CPU/GPU etc.
- The assets needed some rework as well, in order to be optimized for the different engine (as a result of the aforementioned analysis)
- They will also probably use UE4 for their future projects
- He praises the photorealism of the Unreal Engine, even though some months were needed before both the eye candy and the framerate started to get to the desired level
- They took some inspiration on how to solve some issues they had from videos of other games made with the Unreal Engine, mainly the ones made by Milestone

On collaboration between real racing teams & Blancpain

- With this license they are going to have an even stronger collaboration between Kunos and drivers/racing teams
- They will be at many racing weekends in order to gather data from the teams
- Many teams use AC for the training of their pilots. Some of the teams also asked them some advice to build their own simulator
- Many drivers asked Kunos help to setup simulators in order to train for new tracks, for example
- They received numerous eSports contacts, but for the moment they are focusing on the development of the game. (Based on the way he talked about this, I believe esports will come)
- Kunos is working on a connection between virtual and real Blancpain (for example ideal time laps vs real ones, plus something similar to RSR with invitations to the races for the fastest guys, he mentions GranTurismo's Academy)

- Fixed wrong visual representation of wet surfaces introduced in 1.0.6.

- New 5 collision points tyre model. Tyres now "climb gradually" over kerbs, sausages, bumps both in lateral and longitudinal motion.
Completely eliminates the "rail kerb" effect. Greatly improved behaviour over all kind of kerbs, improved precision, improved bumps absorption.
- Tyre model improvements to better handle high load peak situations and high rolling resistance peaks.
- Tyre model now simulates lowering of profile while the tyre flexes. Ride heights will be lower during turns.
- Tweaks to tyre model rolling resistance model. (Fixed and speed-sensitive RR variations).
- New Traction Control operation. TC now simulates a two-step operation, acting on the engine ignition timing (lowering power) and if that is not enough, cutting ignition all together as before.
This permits the TC to have a smoother operation at the start of a slide, permitting the driver to use the slide to turn the car without extreme vibrations or engine cut.
- New Traction Control logic. TC now takes into account the yaw acceleration, simulating gyroscope sensors as the real cars.
As a result, even if the slide or slip of the tyres is not enough, a sudden yaw acceleration (a fast rotation of the car) will activate the TC to save the car from spinning. It also works intelligently so that it can check if the yaw rotation is under control by the driver, allowing him to use the power at will.
NOTE: please follow our forums to find more information about the tyre model update: ... acc.59307/
- Tweaks on the tyre pressure loss on rough surfaces (kerbs, off road etc).
- Car collider tweaks for various models.
- Tweaks for all circuits asphalt abrasivity and tyre wear influence.
- Tyre wear tweaks
- Fixed tyre core temps not properly saved and loaded.
- Fixed incorrect tyre wear when restarting race after loading a saved game.
- Tweaks to weather temperatures and sun phase.
- Tweaks to water dissipation rates.
- Variability is adjusted so medium values give more medium weather change rates.
- Fixed a setup bug with wet/dry setups on session changes.
- Fixed bugs related to setup naming.
- Fixed a bug with speed limiter status in neutral gear.

- Automatic engines will start when the Pit Menu closes, so all engines should be on at the start of a formation lap.
- Rejoining a server while disqualified is now detected in all situations, locking down the car in the pitlane (instead of doing so on the straight after the first lap).
- "Speed up to 50kph" message will not trigger when starting in the pitlane.
- Pit menu selections now are more adaptive, also removing the "Setup" button as spectator.
- Improved race weekend simulation to deliver more gradual grip differences for friday, saturday and sunday.
- Entering an empty server as spectator will now properly start with the pitlane camera.
- Slightly increased the ping limit for CP servers.
- Fixed long formation lap to not allow waiting in the first sector. Doing so will ignore the first lap.
- Added server health diagnostics, usable in the UI for further client updates and as admin command.
- Added UI element (next to the tyre app) indicating server health stats, and colorful warnings for overloaded servers. Can be enabled via HUD options.
- Replaced "result" json outputs by a new structure containing more information like track, session data, all laps and all penalties.
- Json outputs now are also written when the session is advanced via /next command, or when the last player leaves and the server resets.
- Fixed the "rain" and "ambient" conditions setting having little to no influence on the dynamic weather.
- Adjusted the weather randomness to be closer to the Singleplayer "Variation". Value range now can be used in a better way, where 1 - 5 should result in plausible weather.
- Activated the entryList setting "defaultGridPosition", allowing to resume a race any time (any Q session will overwrite the positions, but P->R would not).
- Added "dumpEntryList" flag, usable on non-public servers.
It will save all connected cars and drivers to a entrylist.json when a Q session is finished.
- Added admin command "/manual entrylist" to save an entrylist of the currently connected cars and drivers (on a non-public server).
- Fixed total race time having an offset in result jsons.
- Fixed playerIds not filled in the json results when defined by entry list.
- Fixed car category not being configurable in every scenario (using the entry list).
- Collisions during the race wait time won't affect the SA rating.
- Removed randomization from wrong tyre warnings.
- Server performance and timing improved (massively).
- Server logfile is now readable while the server is running.
- Updated server admin handbook version 3.
