After a bit less than two weeks in open beta with seven bugfix updates, most things have been sorted out and we are ready for the main release of this big update
Below you will find an overview of the main new features.
Buyer Demographics & Market Regions
You now get direct feedback on what your car is good and how many people can afford to buy it in 60 different demographics that all have distinctly different tastes and budgets. Optimize your cars to become the most competitive throughout the game.
A first rough implementation of three different, fictional, static markets for you to try and conquer with your designs. Every region has plenty of characteristics that influence buyer choices, even in this incomplete stage of their development.
Finally you can put engines on or behind the rear axle of your cars, but watch out for that massive oversteer coming your way.
V6 Turbo Engines & Plenty of Little Things
Wanted to put a twin-turbo system on your V6 designs? Now you can!
That is of course not the only changes to the game, there have been plenty of additions, just some of them are:
- Revamped detailed stats
- Added Convertibles
- Added a Company Manager
- Many new car bodies
- Revamped economy calculations
- Multithreaded car calculations
- New calcs for passenger & cargo sizes
- Much prettier Car & Engine Managers
- …and many more things for you to discover
A big thank you to everyone who helped find and report bugs in the open beta phase of this update cycle! In the next days we will give you news on what the next subproject will include in a Little Dev Update.
Thank you for your patience and have fun with this update.
