Assetto Corsa v1.7 and RED PACK available!

The new build of Assetto Corsa offers a sensible amount of updates and new features asked by the simracing community, with the aim to offer a plenty of new options and keep the good path of improvements seen until today from the very first release.

One of the most wanted updates, included in the build 1.7, is the introduction of jump starts, that allows the drivers to perform a false start resulting in diverse selectable penalties.

Tyre model improvements and v10
The new build also introduces improvements of the current v7 tyre model, with tyre temperatures being more sensitive to initial tyre pressures, improvements in the realigning force and more. Furthermore, as an additional proof of KUNOS commitment to realistic physics, we introduce the new tyre model v10 for some of the new RedPack cars. The new tyre model follows the handling philosophy of KUNOS and offers a very similar driving feel, but at the same time is a complete rewrite that permits us to validate much better our results with real life data, hence the jump from v7 to v10. All Assetto Corsa cars will be eventually updated to the new tyre model, in the following months.

Introducing brake temperatures for some of the RedPack cars.
Assetto Corsa now simulates brake temperatures. Following our tradition of step by step evolution, some cars from the RedPack have now brake temperature. In the following months, we will add more features like air ducts and pads and all Assetto Corsa cars will be updated with brake temperatures and their effects.

Power Unit.
MGU-K, MGU-H, ICE with variable Turbo, Batteries charging and energy deployment
Another KUNOS tradition is to update the physics engine with new features, every time we have a new car with very specific characteristics. RedPack includes the Ferrari F138 and SF15-T. The F138 features a typical KERS system that can be simulated very well by our existing hybrid simulation, as seen in the LaFerrari and McLaren P1. Nevertheless the F138 required a maximum energy deployment per lap feature, as well as a bypass button. Both features are now simulated in Assetto Corsa and this permitted also an update of the McLaren P1 that now includes a push to pass button.
On the other hand the SF15-T has the new power unit with a very complex ERS system. The system includes an MGU-K with specific charge and deploy energy values, various profiles of energy deployment, different levels of energy charging, active rear braking pressure, MGU-H for energy harvesting from the Turbo that can be directed to the batteries or to the MGU-K, and different ICE engine braking levels. It has been a very intense period of research and implementation but everything has been coded and simulated in Assetto Corsa and it is available through keys and driving buttons for all Assetto Corsa users to configure!

Physics features commands are now configurable on keyboard and controllers.
Relevant features like Traction Control, ABS, Turbo, MGU-K, MGU-H, Engine brake etc, can be configured on the gaming device, and on the keyboard.

AI improvements, multiplayer improvements
The update includes new artificial intelligence algorithms, improving overtaking manoeuvres; also, now AI drivers are much more variable in performance during a single lap and during a session.
New experimental multiplayer code (selectable from server manager) that greatly reduces bandwidth usage and improves quality. Fixed setups can now be saved and loaded.


More improvements in various other aspects of Assetto Corsa as for example, pitstop time requirements improvements and others, are described in the changelog.

Assetto Corsa REDPACK

KUNOS Simulazioni and 505 Games are proud to present the "RED PACK", the DLC package for ASSETTO CORSA that includes seven legendary Italian sports cars and Austria’s RedBull Ring circuit.
Since the birth of modern motorsports, Red has historically been the colour of choice for Italian Manufacturers & competitive teams. In keeping with that theme, the RED PACK includes some of the most wanted cars from the most iconic italian Factories, Ferrari, Lamborghini and Maserati!

The CARS:
Ferrari SF-15T
Ferrari F138
Ferrari 488 GT3
Maserati 250F 6C
Maserati 250F T2 12C
Maserati GranTurismo MC GT4
Lamborghini Aventador SuperVeloce

The TRACK:
Spielberg REDBULL Ring Circuit

The Ferrari SF15-T is the first Ferrari GP car to debut for ASSETTO CORSA, it is the second car made by Ferrari since the reintroduction of turbo engines in 2014. The red single seater has been reproduced in cooperation with Ferrari.
The Ferrari F138 (originally known as the Ferrari F2013, and sometimes referred to by its project number, the Ferrari 664) is a Formula One racing car designed and built by Scuderia Ferrari for use in the 2013 Formula One season. It was driven by two-times World Champion Fernando Alonso and his team-mate Felipe Massa. The chassis was named F138 to represent the year that it would be raced in, 2013, and to mark the final season that Formula One would use V8 engines.
The Maserati 250F took part of Formula One racing between January 1954 and November 1960, when rules allowed 2.5 liter unsupercharged or 750 cc supercharged engines.
Maserati went with the former, chosing a straight six aspirated engine configuration; in 1956 it mounted a V12 engine.
With a quite roomy cockpit, Maserati 250F featured a 4 gears transmission (plus reverse) and Continental fashion pedals arrangement: clutch, throttle and brake in this order.
The Ferrari 488 GT3 is the the racing version of the latest 488 GTB, presented at the Ferrari Finali Mondiali, as replacement for the 458 Italia.This car features large side intakes to provide a better air flow to its twin-turbocharged 3.9-liter V8.
With increased power, lower weight, improved aerodynamics and innovative technologies the Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce is the most pure incarnation of a Lamborghini to date: unmistakable Lamborghini super sports car DNA, dynamic superiority and exceptional driving precision.
A focus on weight reduction while incorporating innovative technologies has resulted in the most sports-oriented, fastest and most emotional series production Lamborghini ever. The weight has been further reduced by 50 kg through enhanced lightweight engineering including significant use of carbon fiber. The naturally aspirated V12 engine's power is increased to 750 hp. This results in a power-to-weight-ratio of 2,03 kg/hp. The Superveloce accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds and powers on to reach a top speed of more than 350 km/h.
After the experience with Trofeo Series, Maserati is ready to push the GranTurismo MCs into a new challenge: the international GT4 series.
The modifications needed for GT4 homologation mainly concern the engine and aerodynamics. The car's overall technical make-up will be unchanged: the 4700cc engine, electro-actuated transmission with paddle-shift commands and a kerb weight of 1410 kg will stay. The fitting of an air scoop will reduce the car's power output to 430 bhp from its current 488 bhp while a newly-designed rear spoiler and modified diffuser will bring the car's performance into line with that of the other GT4 cars.
The RedBull Ring has been reproduced for Assetto Corsa to the highest level of detail through the use of laserscan technology.


The Circuit of RedBull Ring
Due to its complexity, it took nine months of work to reproduce the Circuit of Catalunya. Laser Scanning Technology allowed the team to recreate the most faithful version of the Spanish track available in any racing game to date.
For the first time ever in a PC racing simulation, the Circuit of Spielberg has been digitally recreated using Laser Scanning Technology. The resulting accuracy combined with the advanced physics model of Assetto Corsa offers an unprecedented driving experience blurring even more the difference between virtual racing and reality.

As much hype as this game got, it still feels stale and dated. It's an okay game, but that's about it. A racing game without a good AI is not a good racing game. Even Gran Turismo has AI that can overtake slower cars. Even Gran Turismo 1 had that.

If this review gets me banned from the official forums, then it just shovs that they can't take any critique. (It's not even harsh.)

5/10 - It's okay for hotlapping. If you can get your settings right.

Assetto Corsa is one of the best car/racing game out there. The sound is so realistic you barely hear the difference between the in-game sound and real life.
Graphics are really good as well as the surroundings.
The physics are magnificent, few games that have so amazing physics.

If you're looking for a realistics game, sound as well as graphics and physics you got to buy this game!

The game andd the DLCs are at a decent price and in return you get really good quality.

Only negatif thing I can say about Assetto Corsa is that there are not that many different types of weather, I'd like to see rain and night weather!

Assetto Corsa is a great game to put it simply.

It's not perfect and amazingly polished like Forza or Gran Turismo, but you can tell they put their focus into their engine. It has enough cars to have a good roster, and the tracks are phenomenal being laser scanned on some of the newer ones.

If the car count puts you off compared to some other games, don't fear! This games modding community is HUGE, if you want it somebody has probably created that track or car for the game. It's phenomenal.

Now, as far as gameplay goes you WILL need a wheel. I've given the controller a few tries and it's just not worth it. (Note, I havn't played on controller since they've done the Xbox/PS4 port so I'm not sure if they've updated it to be more controller friendly) But it feels great. After taking some time to set it up to my liking, drifting felt very natural to me compared to doing it at the track with my own car, and being able to compare it to that is what I look for in a sim.

My only complaint about the game is the career mode. Well...... it's not one. It's just a series of races, no goal, no unlocks, nothing. There's literally no reason to play it, so to me its not a career mode. There are drift challenges and time trials and the sort though to make up for it, so not all is lost.

That also brings me to Online. I spent 95% of my time in online servers anyways. They are PHENOMENAL. Lag is minimal, rooms are plentiful, people generally aren't ♥♥♥♥♥, and theres usually a room for whatever sort of thing you're feeling, be it drifting, GT racing, spec Miata, F1, there's usually at least one room with a few people going on.

ALl in all, would recommend if you're looking for something where the driving matters, not the overall polish or career mode, and if you take the time you can expand absolutely everything in the game to your liking. I definitely got my moneys worth.

This game, sucked in my opinion! Now first off I dont know how the gameplay is because I spent more then an hour in its menu's. My problem was wheel support I have a new G920, yes I was able to set it up but it was so much of a hassle. You entire a race, find out that your shifter does not work, then you have to back out and go to main menu and try and fix it there. Then you rinse and repeat over and over making controls better for your self, WHY THE HELL CANT YOU FIX THE CONTROL ON THE SPOT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RACE IN PAUSE MENU! If you could I could not find it. This brings me to the 2nd rant THE UI AND MENU ARE HORRIBLE!!! So this game brings you too the main menu when you start then when you open multiplayer it opens a new window and has to do rescaling of resolution and the ui is laggy as hell takes forever to load. So now you have picked your race and then when it loads the race it minamizes this multiplayer and opens yet another window and this one is the actull game, three windows now for one damn game. I never really got to race in the game because of problem after problem, When I buy a racing game I should not have to do IT support for myself and go on forumes on how to fix everything. I play project cars, and dirt rally, they run perfect the set up is easy and fast, so ya Assetto Corsa get your UI fixed! I've heard great things about the racing in this game, I'm sure it is good when sitting on the starting line the graphics looked great, but I never went past the starting line, I made my way to the steam refund page. I really wanted to play this game but the buggy interface stopped me.

Just remember I am NOT saying the GAMEPLAY sucks, the INTERFACE SUCKS!

I dont know how the racing is.

Assetto corsa....where do I start

It's a racing simulator and I've spent couple of hours on this game

and... this is what I've experience

+physics are great
+cars are detailed
+Mods, who wouldn't forget mods
+handling physics are great
+tracks are great
+vehicle sounds are realistic (idk lol)


-First time playing this (like me pls don kill me D: ) can be tricky using keyboard
-wheel for simulation driving (hey if you can use keyboard..then why the heck not)
-some cars understeer (and yes,it needs a bit tweak here and there)
-some Mods can be broken as duck
-cars are being ♥♥♥♥♥ to drive (it is, you will get the hang of it once you've played long)


after all its not a bad game, some glitches (who knows).
I don't recommend to arcade racers. But hey, wouldn't hurt to try

git gud driving this real physics

i have played a while, i try other simracing games except iracing, and i really recomend this game. the feel with a wheel its amazing, you can really feel the track it self. the only cons i only find its day cycle and wheather, you dont have a night time or rain. but its really involving in racing. the ia is at 100% whill make you swet to pass them or keep you position, is not a serial ramming ia, but its challenging. the ghrapics are nice and smooth i run the game in 60fps/ 55fps stable, i dont have a new system with the last of the last. my opinion is if you are looking to a sim game who challenge you to improve or get in to a league, dont read any further and buy this game, but if you are more simcade or arcade type of racer i recomend looking in other game, because you gone to be frustrated at no time.
my veredict 9/10

*no, the time lapse or the wheather isnt the most important thing.

Simply, amazing.
Amazing graphics, awesome simulation.
Graphic menu is simple and very intiutive, so you can go directly to drive a car in great scenarios or go to career mode and taking step by step in very different cars.
I'm enjoying more and more every time I play it.

- Took the missus on a very expensive holiday.
- Came home poor and bored.
- Told myself I couldn't afford AC + DLC.
- Bought AC and DLC (because Nordschleife and Nissan GTR).
- Used my XB1 controller because I don't have a wheel.
- Couldn't do the game justice without a wheel.
- Looked at wheel reviews.
- Told myself I can't afford a wheel.
- Missus told me I can't afford a wheel.
- Bought a wheel.
- Profit.

11/10 would be poor again

After spending 150 hours in Project Cars, I decided to buy this.. so this is more of a comparison than a review.. or both?

The first thing I noticed was how much different the FFB feels. It's difficult to explain, but I'll try. It feels much closer to driving a real car. There's a wider "soft zone" than in PCars, as PCars tends to feel fairly stiff even with the smallest movements. You can turn down FFB strength on PCars to compensate, but this makes some of the more dramatic turns feel "off" or too weak. Assetto Corsa gives a more balanced and dynamic feeling throughout the various turn radiuses. You also feel everything on the road to the slightest detail and the laser scanned tracks add even more detail to this. (Also the grass actually feels like grass, sand like sand, and your car slides appropriately! In PCars the grass is like quick sand.) Overall, it just feels right.

The car handling and physics also feel more akin to a real vehicle. Because of this, I found the driving more intuitive and found myself making more consistent laps. Overall, the game feels much more stable as well. I haven't encountered any bugs and even in VR it runs silky smooth. PCars can be pretty glitchy and unreliable, both in the physics and sound.. making it pretty frustrating sometimes.

Drifting of course is far better in Assetto Corsa, (not even comparable, honestly) which is what I'm going to spend most of my time doing personally. Overall, I don't really see much point of going back and playing PCars other than to play with a friend who doesn't own this game.

My only gripe is that I can't tune my vehicles to the precision I'd like, this may be a misunderstanding on my part because I've seen videos of people tuning (for example) their toe out to 1. (Maybe an update took this out?) I can only do increments of 5 or 10 with the same vehicle. If there's a way to choose any number, please let me know.

Best simulator I have played to date and looks great at 4k resolution with max settings.

The physics are fantastic, providing a genuine feel through the FFB that you're driving and have control. You can feel every little bump in the track and exactly what the car is doing or about to do. The career mode is somewhat basic but very enjoyable and a good introduction to each car class & track. Drifting is really fun/challenging and can feel really rewarding when you put an awesome run together. I could praise every little detail of this simulator but I would bore you silly - so just buy it already!

absolute perfection
this is pretty much prefect 1:1 visually to real life, but I mostly focus on drifting and touge
this game is the main reason i purchased a G27
and i can never go back to controller for racing
it is playable with anything that you have, i had no problems setting up various controllers.
my only complaint is the lack of american servers, or just american players in general. but i know we are a small community as it is.
highly recommended, the visuals alone make this game flawless in my eyes

The sim of all sim racers.

If you're looking for an arcade racer or even something more along the lines of Gran Turismo, you might want to look elsewhere.

But if you like the idea of trying to race beautiful, powerful sportscars on real life tracks...this is the game for you.

Im a pretty keen sim racer, I have a dedicated setup on an obutto with Thrustmaster T500rs, modded pedals, H shifter, sim vibe, triples and recently a Rift CV1. I have been league racing for a few years in games like rfactor2, Assetto Corsa and iRacing.

Assetto Corsa is a fun game and if i could make the choice again i would still buy it. But for me it had become somewhat of a hot lap simulator to do a few laps in every now and then. Its a pretty game, it works well with simvibe but the multiplayer matching was crap and the single player events were a bit rubbish as well.

In Comparison:

* Assetto wins the gfx competition hands down (until you consider the rift implementation).

* The rift implementation in iRacing is much better due to what i believe is the pixel density improving the horrid jaggies. RF2 will never support the rift so although i have loved it dearly its now dead to me.

* The mulitplayer implementation of iRacing cant be beaten, its head and shoulders above any other racing game and this is where replayability is born

* Physics can be a bit subjective without actually being on the Dev staff of each company but i feel that iRacing and RFactor2 have the slight upper hand. The fact that real GT3 racers use their real life car setups in iRacing says a lot about just how realistic it is.

* League racing iRacing and RFactor2 are better by far, in many respects Assetto feels incomplete in comparison

* Content.. I dont care for road cars, I like to race in race cars so a lot of whats in Assetto has low appeal for me

* Straight up single player fun.. DiRT Rally is the winner of this category for me

Summary:

If Assetto had a strong multiplayer system including ranking that was even half as good as iRacing and a better menu system + rift implementation it would probably be my goto sim racing game. But as it stands its near the bottom of the pile, one rung up from RF2 but only since RF2 is rift-less

Asseto Corsa gives an authentic driving experience, the feel of the ffb and physics are perfect, easy to drive slow but fun, hard to be consistently quick and win online races. Single player could use some improvements, but all aspects considered I don't want to drive anything else (apart from Dirt). I have a few driving sims on my PC but this is the one I play by default. 10/10
