30-06-2016 Raceroom has been updated

Highlights:
- Added garage phase to Multiplayer. This is a 60 second phase before race to allow players to change their car setup and fuel.

- Changed login flow and integrated with Steam Web API. New players will no longer have to register an account with e-mail. The game will create accounts with the Steam ID and existing users will automatically authenticate with Steam details.


Game
- Added support for Fanatec pedal vibration. Players who have a Fanatec pedalset with vibration can tweak these via the controller file.
FFB pedal throttle vibe zero magnitude = 0.01 // Throttle pedal vibration at 0rpm (reference point) can be set between 0 and 1.0
FFB pedal throttle vibe slope = 0.15 // can be set between -99999999.0, 99999999.0
FFB pedal throttle slip vibe= 1.0 // Throttle pedal vibration on tire slip. can be set between 0 and 1.0
FFB pedal brake slip vibe= 1.0 //Brake pedal vibration on front tire slip. can be set between 0 and 1.0
FFB pedal brake vibe slope= 5.0 // Slope for brake pedal vibration based on speed and braking %. can be set between -99999999.0, 99999999.0
- Fixed an issue where the game could crash while loading a replay.
- Fixed an issue where game was adding fuel in liters instead gallons while refueling during pitstop.
- Increased controller axis movement threshold used when detecting input (so that the player has to press the axis 90% down before it gets bound in options).
- Removed the now obsolete manual login screen, modified error screen and added retry button so the player can retry login instead of having to exit the game completely to retry.
- Added potential fixes for freezes that were occurring when game was trying to save replays.
- Removed fuel multipliers from DTM 2015 as they were causing issues in Championship.
- Fixed an issue where cars started without brakes if player skips the first race session in a 2 race format race.
- Fixed speed of background music changing after watching a replay.


Multiplayer
- Added garage phase to Multiplayer. This is a 60 second phase before race to allow players to change their car setup and fuel. The garage phase ends either at 60 seconds or when all players have readied up by pressing Race.
- Added a new setting to dedicated server called “Non Ready Pitlane Start Delay”. If set to 0, players that failed to press race before garage phase ends, gets put on the grid as normal. If set to any other value, the player starts from the pits as penalty and cannot drive until that value in seconds has passed.
- Fixed an issue related to slow responses from/to servers that fixes cars continually remaining at ping 0.
Added potential fixes for connection issues that were causing some players to get disconnected.
- Fixed issue with session timer being off by 10-16 seconds sometimes, and not counting laps done within that time.
- Fixed an issue with drivetrain oscillation calculation that was causing inaccurate torque values in Multiplayer, causing cars to flip and float around unnaturally when elapsed time was reset to synchronize time.
- Fixed issue with being unable to change gear after walkthrough phase in Multiplayer.
- Fixed issue with "Waiting for Server Response" popup sometimes showing up and remaining on screen, after joining a multiplayer server.


Sounds, Cameras, Physics & AI:
- Fixed handbrake pressure being null on cars with recently updated physics.
- Fixed Honda Civic rear view camera.
- Added new TV Cameras for Nurburgring, Mid Ohio, Zandvoort, Sonoma Raceway.
- Fixed a case where player was given a cut track warning when entering the pitlane at Bathurst.
- Fixed a couple of garage spots at Salzburgring that were outside of the pitlane limit.
- Fixed a congestion issue when all AI’s would pit in simultaneously at some of the Nordschleife layouts.
- Increased fuel use estimations for most of the track layouts to a safer level, addressing all issues where AI’s wouldn’t embark enough fuel to complete a 15 minutes race session.
- Nurburgring: Merged cut rules between difficulty levels.
- Monza: Fixed issue with AI not pitting.
- Laguna Seca: Fixed issue with AI not pitting.
- Zolder - Fixed AI hitting pit exit sign when leaving pits in practice and qualifying sessions,
- Mid Ohio Turn 1 - Made the cut track rule less strict.
- Added bigger grids for Suzuka, Hockenheim, Hungaroring, Slovakiaring, Monza, Laguna Seca, Norisring, Nurburgring, Oschersleben, Lausitzring and Raceroom Raceway, Mid Ohio, Moscow Raceway, Shanghai, Zolder.

- Fixed an issue where an error would appear after purchasing a track through the Multiplayer browser.
- Fixed so the purple server entry in Multiplayer browser refreshes immediately after purchasing the needed item, instead of player having to back out and re-enter the browser to refresh.

Reviews

“There's the accessibility, and the way it's just as satisfying to play on a cheap pad as it is on an expensive wheel set-up; how the handling is translated sublimely through both. And what handling it is, spread out across a delicious range of thoroughbred racing cars: there are the DTM cars, with their downforce and low-slung lines, that only seem one step removed from the hi-tech of F1, or their WTCC cousins that bounce over kerbs with the kiddish enthusiasm of a go-kart.”
EUROGAMER

“The sounds, the looks, the feel, it all comes together to form something that is simply a high quality product. Whether you play only the free content, or you buy it all, there is no question that this sim is worth the download.”

I have played a number of racing sims, in fact most of them, this is one of the best. The sound is the best is any sim out there the Force Feedback on my Fanatec wheel is amazing and the graphics are great. In fact this game isnt even that graphics hungry on my GTX 1080 yet it looks fantastic. The AI is brutal when running in hardest setting and no assists, which is the only way to play this game. I think it is one of the best sims on the market.
If I had one complaint it is that the Brands Hatch track is the short cart track not the full track. I am sure that Sector 3 can fix that.
I woulds also love if they would put the Aussie V8 supercars in.

I simply cant get enough of Raceroom....and even after trying "the next big racing game" I keep coming back to raceroom time and time again....Great graphics without all the sparkly bits. Awesome in your face sound and some of the best FFB out there...

Do I recommend it...yes! Should you give it a go...Hell yes!

and remember - initially it's free, and all cars are able to be test-driven before purchase, so dont like it, dont buy it....although, once your hooked - I bet you will!

Pros:
- SOUND!!! Best in a racing game ever
- the feeling of driving a car... unbelievable. Tons of fun. You have to feel it for yourself. I wish EVERY racing game had so realistic and pleasant physics and driving model as this game!
- supports keyboard, mouse, gamepad, wheel... very satisfying gameplay on any of those.
- Force Feedback. I mostly hate force-feedback in games and always turn it off (at least on a gamepad), because it's bloody annoying. Here... here it's a pure masterpiece.
- camera controls
- replays, saving replays, playing replays (really not common thing these days)
- you can test any car for free
- it's free (but for a price)
- highly configurable in every aspect
- runs fast on low-end hardware
- real-world drivers play it for fun too

Cons:
- no story mode/campaign/objectives/modes etc. - something which would certainly make it more interesting
- quite expensive tracks and cars
- graphics are a weird mix of modern and old standards

My #2 next to Project Cars. I simply wish there was a safety car, weather and time progression and dynamic road surface (rubbering etc.). There is just something about night racing. Granted the casual player would not even bother with these features, this is for the more dedicated hard core player. Seems when it comes to racing games there is a trade off that needs to be made between fun and seriousness, in my opinion this is a pure racing simulator and it doesn't try to be anything else. All cars are race spec, there are no road cars, no parts to buy for the car, no livery editor, etc. You get real life counter parts from real series mimicked ala iRacing.

The sound is fantastic, the feel of the cars is much improved over the early beta days, the visiual presentation is fantastic albeit a bit dated (DirectX 9). Overall it gives a fantastic race experience that with hopeful VR support be extremely immersive. The studio has a lot of talent and great foundation to make a next generation simulator in the future. Hopefully they realize their vision in the next iteration, I can only hope that the backend gets replaced while the game stays the same title, no need for a RRRE2, just keep it RRRE and keep improving what is already there.

I highly recommend it, if you do try this out, hop in the sillhoutte series cars at the raceroom raceway track (both awesome car and track!) and be sure to use a while, you loose a lot of immersion and feel of the game using a game pad or keyboard, its not gonna give you a poor experience. A G25 works perfect here.

I have bought nearly all the content for the game and I am not even upset, you can get vRP from the raceroom store, which is cheaper than buying the cars and tracks within the game, first get the vRP reedem it in the game then buy the packs it will save you a lot of money. I recommend buying the packs that have cars and tracks in them, then the track packs then car packs as you wish. It will maximize the content and getting the 10K vRP for 60$ yields you nearly 90% of the content. This is not different than buying any modern game now, just wish they made it simpler than this.

If you're looking for a good racing simulator for the price of nothing, this game is the perfect choice. The sounds are absolutely stunning, the physics are very good, you're not forced to pay for cars or tracks to have fun since the Competitions mode gives you a variety of events to choose from. Personally i love this game and i see myself putting more hours in it.
