Assetto Corsa v1.0.1 + RUF CTR YELLOWBIRD AVAILABLE AS GIFT ITEM!

The RUF-Automobile license for Assetto Corsa has been announced some time ago, allowing KUNOS Simulazioni to reproduce in its acclaimed racing game some of the most iconic cars of the German Car manufacturer.

KUNOS Simulazioni wishes to thank all Assetto Corsa fans and users with a new update, available as free gift item on Steam: the RUF CTR YELLOWBIRD is available today!

The Ruf CTR (Group C, Turbo Ruf) also known as the CTR Yellowbird or simply Yellowbird, was a limited-production, high performance sports car produced by Ruf Automobile of Germany.
Introduced for the 1987 model year and based on the Porsche 911, the CTR featured an enlarged and highly tuned version of Porsche's 3.2 litre flat-six cylinder engine, lightened body panels, an integrated roll cage (adding chassis stiffness in addition to occupant safety), upgraded suspension and braking systems, a custom-designed transmission, and several unique trim pieces such as polyurethane bumpers, and the use of the fender-mounted oil filter (a Porsche feature for the 1972 MY only) necessitated by relocating the oil tank forward to clear the intercooler on that side.

Developing 469 hp (350 kW) and 408 lb·ft (553 N·m) of torque and weighing in it at only 2,530 pounds (1,147 kg), the CTR provided stellar performance, with a 0-60 mph time of around 4 seconds and a top speed in excess of 200 miles per hour (320 km/h). Although a small group of vehicles such as the Ferrari F40 and Porsche 959 were faster to 60 miles per hour (97 km/h), the Yellowbird could outperform all competition when it came to top speed, topping out at 211 miles per hour (340 km/h), a top speed that made it the fastest sports car in the world at the time of its release.

The car received its nickname, "Yellowbird", during testing by Road & Track magazine, whose staffers noted the contrast created by its yellow paintwork against the overcast skies on the day of their photo shoot.

KUNOS Simulazioni would like to thank all of you for the great support you gave to Assetto Corsa: we hope you enjoy this great new car as well as we enjoyed to reproduce and include it in our game.

Our best regards

The KUNOS Simulazioni development team.

Assetto Corsa 1.0 is out now!



Assetto Corsa 1.0 is now available for download on Steam!

So finally this game came out of early access and is finished and there can't be any excuses anymore. The game didn't changed much. Kunos simulazioni are still really bad at communicating and are very arrogant banning you if you criticize the game or ask something. I'm not talking about childish comments like "your game sucks".

The game has a big potential. The physics are good. It has great force feedback. You feel the car, you feel almost everything through the wheel, the driving feel is really good.

Developers keep adding new cars and the game gets better and better in this department, but still i want to see subaru, nissan, ford, audi, peugeut, opel and many more. It‘s a racing game so we need more cars. Of course i don‘t want fake 1000+ cars like in GT series, where you get the same 50 cars in different colors which counts as different cars. But i think ~100 different cars is a must and it's going the right way. Yes there're mods, but i want professionally created cars/tracks, not by some amateurs. There's no auto updates for the mods, so if you have like 50 of them you must update them manually every time. And some mods for this game cost money. I don't approve such behavior and will not support it.

The track selection is not very good at the moment. Still there‘s no famous nurgburgring, but it is annouced as DLC. It‘s not like i‘m against DLC, but i think such track must be included in the game from the start. Especially seeing how good the game sells they should have the budget now. I think Kunos did not expect such luck. It would be cool to have some fictional tracks as well.

AI. It's bad. AI is not aware of you, they just trying to drive trough you. So racing against AI is not very fun. At least they've sorted the difficulty so it's possible to beat AI now even if you make mistakes.
Penalty system is absurd. It punishes you every time you go out of track, no matter if you cut the track or slide off the track. Where's the logic behind this? I'm already punished myself by going off the track and lost time and stupid system makes me go on 50kmh for 5 seconds and lose more time.

There‘re challenges too, but they‘re so hard that there‘s no fun playing them, it feels more like a hard work than playing a game so all the challenges are pointless. The best times should be achievable to all players (after some practice of course), even for those which are playing with keyboard/mouse or with a controller, not only for aliens. Online leaderboards should be the place where aliens rule. Oh and forget the game if you're playing with a controller. This game must be played with wheel only. If you're looking for something similar to forza or GT, know that this game is nothing like this.

Multiplayer. It's a joke. MP is boring and pointless. There's no leaderboards or player profiles, no statistics. Most of the time there're too little servers, you just can't find a game. You can join the league, but it's not fun for a casual player to compete with pros.
After releasing the full game only tools for kicking people were added. Of course now every mod can ban/kick whoever he wants or dislikes without any reason.

Community is one of the worst. AC fanboys are the worst, you can't say anything bad about AC or criticize it. The game is perfect for them.

What year is it? Almost 2015! And there's still no night racing and no weather conditions. Even GT5 has this and it's some old game made for an old console.

Graphics. The cars looks really great, but everything else is just bad. Like from 2006 but enhanced with hdr and bloom.

No leaderboards. It is really fun in raceroom experience to see the times from all over the world, find your country and try to beat the time.

There are few game modes.
Career which consists of races and time attacks, It will take some time for you to complete it and you'll try the cars.
Time attack. It's some broken game mode which makes you go slower. The slower you go in the first couple of laps the more points you get.
Drift and drag racing which i'm not interested in so i can't say anything about them.

Another small annoying things:
When in photo mode you can't hide the racing line.
Mouse pointer do not disappear while playing.
Can't pause the game and check apps.
Racing line is completely broken.

You can have some fun in career mode and in MP with friends, but besides that i can't see how this game could be fun for a non hardcore sim fan. I'm still trying to like this game. It has some really attractive things and hope Kunos will improve the experience for non hardcore sim fans.

Let me first of go by saying , that i have played every sim racing game out there , including the Iracing .Having said that i can easily say that "Assetto Corsa" is by far one of the most realistic driving experiences on PC .But in order to trully appreciate this game and it's realisam , you are gonna need to invest some money and time into it . Meaning , that you will need to get a Thrustmaster Wheel 458 italia & Oculus Rift DK2 , and i promise you that you are going to get the real immerssive racing experience available on PC format .This is only for those who are a hardcore racing enthusiats and wanna experience the best of the best . But for a casual PC sim fan a Xbox Controller or any kind of wheel will be enough. I'm not gonna bore with details on why "Assetto Corsa" is the most accurate and realistic racing sim , all you need to know that it is , and don't take my word for it , do your research online and you will see what others mostly Professional Real Life Race Drivers have to say about this game .

Early Access Review
Let me be as frank, and honest as possible, this game is absolutely amazing, but there is a caveat.
So I did not really play racing games/sims and one day I saw Grid Autosport, and it had a really fun look to it so I picked it up and with my XBOX controller, started having fun. The AI is terrible on that game, but in multiplayer with friends its a great time. I enjoyed it so much, I thought, have I missed out on one of the best genres of games?
So I picked up Assetto Corsa, and tried it out. It was fun in third person view with the controller, but as I read through forums, and spoke to others I was missing out.
This is a SIMULATOR, a program DESIGNED to mimic real life driving and thus cannot be enjoyed fully with sticks and buttons, and that a wheel, no, a good wheel was going to improve my experience.
Well, for my birthday, my wife got me the G27 wheel, and my goodness, this is where this game absolutely excels. There is nothing like it, I truly feel as though I am driving the car (to a point) and I LOVE IT! I tried Grid with the wheel, and its not bad, not bad at all, its the difference between Outrun and getting a day at a real racing track playing AC. There is also modding support, so if I want to drift one night, I have a some drift cars, want to drive F1, those are there, and the amount of tracks and cars provided by the community, are increasing daily.
So....to sum it up, if you are looking for a game, this probably isnt for you, but if you are looking to have a real racing experience, this is where its at!

Early Access Review
+ vehicledynamics/handling
+ looks good
+ sounds good
+ laserscanned tracks
+ nice selection of cars
+ mods

- AI/KI
- no weather
- no night
- first kunos wanted to sell it as a F2P Game and you feel and see it in almost every aspect of this game (5sec penalty, no false starts, pitstops, no flagrules etc)
- kunos want to get a big company so they care more about nice pressevents and nice pictures then turning this game into a real racing simulator
- no longer every 2 week updates
- many, many, many idiots/jerks/♥♥♥♥♥♥s/cheaters in public multiplayer
- maybe a DLC nightmare in the future (3rd party paycontet already available)
- almost impossible to do close door-2-door racing cause of massive microlags in multiplayer
- lags in general (when the player in front of you is hard on the edge of his car - his car starts to lag/warp and you most likely crash him/you/both of you out of the race if you dont slow down and let a gap of 1-2sec between your cars)
- maxed out graphics needs huge gpu performance
- damagesystem in its current state is ♥♥♥♥ed up from top to bottom
- overall it feels like a tuned up forza motorsport (physic) with by far less content and costumisation of your cars (i played fm3 and loved it also) (most likely cause they wanted to sell it as f2p ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ where you would have to pay a lot of real cash for a nice paint or spoiler)
- Trento Bondone Hillclimb Track is a bad conversation from netcar (the devs also forbidded to mod it into the game for modders) and is by far the visual worst track and yes you can also fall out of the hole track/level into an endless flyinspin when you crash at the wrong place...like in a 0.2 version of some modtracks. I HOPE THEY FIX THIS ASAP.


So is it a good game? More - then +.
If you like driving/racinggames like rf,gtr,iracing and own a wheel it is definitely a must have. ATTENTION: Nordschleife will come as DLC with 10cars and is NOT INCLUDED in the release version of this game.
If you more confident with a simple xbox controller then wait for project cars or stay with forza motorsport/gt.
Singleplayer sucks cause of KI and limited simulation of real racing.
PUBLIC Multiplayer sucks cause of many, many, many wreckers and ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ wannabe schumachers.
Best solution is to download some hillclimb/rallytrack mods and enjoy the driving from point a to b. ALONE. Or join a racingleague for fair and hard racing (but not too close :))


This is my personal opinion after 770hours of testing and driving, bugreporting and following the developement since day 1 of ea release.

Cheers and have fun

A great example of Early Access done right, Kunos was always communicating what they were working on and delivered updates frequently.

As for the game itself, if you want a racing simulator, Assetto Corsa is the title you want. Period. It may not have the same eye-candy as some titles, but it delivers in the physics simulation, force feedback (use of a wheel is highly recommended), and native, FOV-correct triple-monitor support.

Kunos has stated plans to continue building on AC with DLC and core updates through 2017, so even if you didn't get in on early access, there's still a great value to be had here.

version 1.0.0 just dropped. It brings new vehicles, maps and a completely overhauled sound system as well as better vehicle damage, better mechanics and handling, overall the game feels "miles" better compared to the previous versions! Well done Kunos. ohh and career mode is now availible to play... this game is honestly a steal, for the price to content ration!

TLDR: Everything that could have been improved, was improved
......
Edit: AC is no longer in "early access", more career missions have been released to further the game aswell as tweaked mechanics on some vehicles, and a hint at future licensed vehicles to come.

Every corner in the game you take, you always get a shot of adrenaline, you can never know if you are going to fast that you might spin out, or just that perfect speed that would end up giving you a an advantage on your ever soo close opponent that is trailing right behind you.

I love this game.

Assetto Corsa dawns a new era of the racing simulator. Assetto Corsa is a simulator that brings the revered true-to-life racing experience to the casual gamer. This game bridges the two worlds together without losing rigidity as a racing simulator. This is a simulator that will punish you for entering a corner too fast, or giving too much gas in a corner. But at the same time it is so delightfully simplistic and intuitive that it is easily playable by almost anyone. Assetto Corsa is one of the few racing simulators that is fun, and still encourages you to make mistakes and learn from them. If you are coming from console games like Forza, or GT and are looking for something more, then this is the game for you. Assetto Corsa is truly the best racing simulator there is.

However, this game is by no means perfect. One of the biggest problems that I have for this game is the lack of awareness of speed. This leads to the driver entering the corner much too fast, and creates an inorganic driving experience. This problem is mostly notable in the interior driving view. Other reviewers have mentioned this as a flaw and it certainly is one. I found the best way to correct this is to adjust the FOV or go to either the bonnet cam or the bumper cam. If you are someone that can get used to the inside cam (where it occurs the most) then this might not be a problem for you.

The Racing game I've been searching for my whole life!

Graphics - 10/10
Sound - 9/10
Physics - 10/10
Laser scanned tracks - 10/10
Damage (Visual) - 7/10
AI - 6.5/10
Career (should be challenge mode) - 8/10
Mods - 10/10
Dev Support - 10/10
Feel like the owner of a Ferrari 458 GT2 - 10/10

With a Dev team that seems to very passionate about getting it right and loves their cars, this game is going to go along way. it's the best Racing Simulator to date, with constant updates and a modding community it will be years before this game loses it's spark.

This game is worth every penny and should be in any racers game collection!

Early Access Review
This game saved me a fortune - for just £29.99, I now know I can't drive that Lotus Evora S I've always wanted. While I limit myself to a Mondeo, anyone else who wants a racing sim will be impressed with the current build state.

You can also import your own tracks and cars, and tweak literally everything. It looks and drives great, but needs a Golliath of a PC to run this at the highest physics and graphics detail - as you would expect for a game built to use all that extra PC power available to it over a console.

Early Access Review
As someone who has spent a decent amount of time on a real race track, I'd say this game is fairly realistic and L337. Great car physics - significantly better than Forza or Gran Turismo. Needs a wheel to be properly enjoyed.

9.9/10.

Why 9.9? Needs the Porsche license (which I believe is currently being wasted on Need for Speed, or some other garbage-y garbage).

This game has an amazing atmosphere about it to begin with. I find it hard to play it in less than 4-5 hour stints. I just can't help myself. Odds are, you're checking out this game because you like cars. LOOK NO FURTHER! With everything from the physics engine, to the graphics that look frighteningly realistic, this Racing Sim has it all. Beautiful layouts of tracks, cars, intuitive UI for modding the cars' geometry with various suspension setups; that help to not only enhance your Sim experience but to teach about the way cars work in general. I have only played for <100 hours but thats because I thought I could make Raceroom Racing Experience a little bit more like this game.ITS NOT POSSIBLE! I'VE TRIED! The attention to detail really enhances one's experience. I haven't had a single dull second in this sim. In summation, you should stop reading this and buy the game already!

Assetto Corsa makes Grand Turismo feel as if it is purely arcade compared to it. This game is extremely sophisticated with a myriad of optimization options, and Profesional mode in this game is how it should be played! This is the most advanced racing simulator I have ever seen and it seems as if the developers are just getting started! Anyone who is a racing sim fan will love this game but I warn those semi arcadish fans because this game is not for the weak hearted. Be prepared to spend hours upon hours attempting the races if you play it on professional mode because that is what will happen!

Time to step it up Polyphony, this is measurably better than GT6. Better feel, better graphics, better realism, better options... the list goes on. And with a community of moders and the ability to add cars over time, I'm sure this game's garage will develop into something truly comparible. I understand this is PC vs Console but who cares. Graphics aren't as important as the feel of being connected with the car and the speed you're actually going. AC translates the feeling of speed in a way I've never felt with GT6. If you have a wheel and love racing games, get this game, period.

If i'm honest I started to get a little worried that this game would fall into the DayZ trap and be in development forever,with games like Project cars on the way I was starting to lose all interest in Assetto Corsa......until the 1.0 update.

The game now looks absolutly STUNNING,yes we need more cars and tracks but the game itself satisfies my racing urges and plays fantastic with the Xbox One controller (which i will be upgrading to a new wheel as soon as possible).The cars handle and move much better than any driving sim i have played in the past and I am a huge Forza and Grand Tourismo fan,and this was keeping me on consoles,the fact PC had no good racing sims,now I can say PC has everything I want in a gaming platform.

Sorry Forza and GT........Assetto Corsa has risen the bar for a quality racing sim.

IMO this game blows away iracing for proper realism. It has a raw and gritty feel to it. The feedback from your car and road surfaces is impeccable. Add to that the fact this is only for pc and one can quickly forget all those games who cater to the kiddy console users, leaving us with 2nd rate code for pc. This is a MUST buy for sim racing enthusiasts.

DISAPOITING

After a year in early access game still lacks features that any true sim should have
• No flags system
• No rolling start
• Poor pitstop system
• 5-second penalty and slowing down to 50 km/h for driving off track does no matter if you cut the corner or someone push you off the track (there is no place for this i any sim racing game)
• You can't select 1st gear before green light
• No option for weather condition
• No night racing
• Poor AI
• Broken Time Attack (game mode)
• Many bugs and performance issues (e.g mouse keep appearing on the screen while driving, some messages can lower your FPS, random hiccups)

Sure game looks great, have great physics but that’s about it. As its stands, today for version 1.0 I do NOT recommend, back to GTR2 I guess.

This is my first review I felt I needed to make on such a great sim. Started playing Assetto Corsa when it was first put on steam. I could not have picked a better simulator. I've played a LOT of racing simulators/games, but this one sticks out the most. With the modding community releasing new cars and tracks every other day. The original cars and tracks in the game are top notch! The handling is awesome. The graphics are beautiful. Overall the atmosphere is pretty sweet. I'm glad 1.0 is here it was definitely worth the wait, and I can't wait for future content I will be supporting the developers for such a great simulator!

The only con's is: # 1 The AI they are really buggy, But it does not matter because in a simulator you race against real people for the full effect and it does not bother me one bit!

#2 To get the full experience you will need a racing wheel, I have tried it with a controller and it was just a mess, than again it is a Simulator.
