Look What The Cat Hacked In - S2E03
Sunday's episode was a light one, clocking in at just above 60 minutes. There are, however, some interesting things that were discussed, such as DRS, graphics, new tyre models and... surprise, suprise: Assetto Corsa 2. Below the video you'll find a breakdown of the most important parts of this episode of "Look What The Cat Hacked In", including a detailed Q&A session.
- The file format and algorithm have changed. Before these changes the simulator was checking...
Last few days (one might add in sync with the real racing calendar) Kunos played again with its fans (us), sharing some really great shots of the presumably work-in-progress Spa Francochamps circuit. It's gonna be a long week until Friday, as nobody yet knows what the build on 29th brings:
- improved graphics ?
- the long-awaited Spa ?
- other goodies ?
Whatever it brings (or not) I am nothing less than admirative to the energy this small studio is spreading.
Here are the said screens

Lake Louise - a 22km/50km mountain epic - Official thread - A real road for your driving dreams
As promised, for every new 1000 Likes, Kunos will share a new behind the scenes "thing" with us. Promise kept when their FB page hit 32K today. How ? With an awesome announcement the license from TOYOTA for some iconic cars. Among them.. this:
No ? Ok, this ?
Still no ? Ok, I'll put it in context a little bit
Don't know about you guys, but for me, street/real cars.. I will not go out of the house again !
Here's the official press release:...

Marco is at work again. Distributing free tickets for the hype train. It's not exacly clear when it is due to pass by the train station, but we do know it's supposed to happen in February. This was probably even more encouraged, since the Porsche RSR 2017 still needs (waits ?) for some data from the manufacturer, in order to represent it at its best.
Slightly ironical, here's what Marco had to say replying to one of the comments regarding this "delay":
Definitely I'm not sorry. We release cars...

I don't know about you, but it seems time flies quite fast. In less than 2 weeks (Dec 15th, to be exact) a new Dream Pack should hit our wallets. The #3 already. With every new track release, Simone seems to get even better at it, as you can see for your self in the released preview video.
Too many details aren't available yet, but here is a first official statement:

Kunos guys did it again. On Christmas Eve. In a gesture to show the appreciation for the massive support from gamers all over the world, the RUF CTR YELLOWBIRD is available as a gift starting today, adding to the on-growing list of awesome cars to drive in Assetto Corsa.
Before I leave you (I'm as eager to try it as you are ), don't forget that on December 31st an important announcement is to be made, regarding the future of our beloved sim. Until then, Happy Christmas to you all !

When we thought that a period of calm will follow after the last update, well.. Kunos is back at it (us?) again. A mysterious message appeared on the FB today:
What does it mean ? When visiting the official website, there is not much info either. Just a counter to know exactly how much longer the wait is. Kunos made sort of a habit to surprise their user base with big announcements (Laser-scanned Nordschleife, Ferrari license, Lamborghini license, Porsche license, etc) and in one of the last interviews Marco...
Playing with the fans using a 3 days countdown, the hour finally came:

- Huracan LP620-2 Super Trofeo
- Huracan GT3
- Gallardo GT3
- Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera
All this raises the count to...
There are multiple types of data, helpful to the trackbuilder available from the Danish government.
Such as DHM (The Danish Height model) and Orthophotos (airplane photos). DHM consists of LIDAR, that is LAS pointclouds compressed into LAZ files, different kinds of ASC surface models and large GEOTIFF images.
I will do another tutorial on getting the Orthophotos to keep this tidy.
The Danish data is downloadable from here:
The requirements for using the data, is to at...
Being an Italian studio, Italians do have some advantage over the rest of the world following Assetto Corsa. One example is this interview in Italian, by Eduardo Ullo for ILVIDEOGIOCO. However, this is 2017 and thanks to online tools like Google Translate, we can get a pretty good idea about what has been discussed, even if some translations artifacts might be in there. The ones I could spot, were corrected. The ones that you spot, please let us know in comments below .
2 of them, to be precise. We refer of course, to the same period of time: end of April to present day. It started with probably the most requested DLC in Assetto Corsa: The Japanese Pack. 7 Japanese car icons, with very different personalities, in both classic and modern flavor.
The Japanese Pack was released on May 18th, and for 4.99EUR one got:
Mazda MX-5 2016 and MX-5 CUP
The Mazda MX-5 Miata is famous to be a highly capable racing platform; it is known as the best-selling roadster in the world, and some even claim that this model is the most road-raced car world-wide....

Anyone knew Hope Racetrack in rFactor 1 ? One of the best looking tracks on that engine, if you ask me; made by the hands of @lemax (Miseluk, anyone ?), who was kind enough to allow us the conversion towards Assetto Corsa. Currently, work is in progress, hope(ing) to get a drivable version by the end of this week. Well, actually the track is...
Excited to feature such an awesome video, on the first thread in the section ! For those of you, that don't already know JonZ (aka Carbon14), check out his channel, fast ! There's some high quality material there. Congrats Jon, outstanding work ! Like the word says, I could watch this all day ! Literally ! And a short description from the man himself
Exciting news !
Kunos team, represented in this case by the KS lead 3d artist Simone Trevisiol, just released a first video presenting the basic functionality of their inhouse editor/exporter, the tool that will allow you/me/us modders to export own 3d creations. It seems that in the beginning, only track exporting options will be available, although for cars the same editor will be used a little bit later down the road. The main reason (and it makes sense) is that Kunos team wishes to also release a proper documentation when enabling car export, as cars require more that some 3d...
With the release date closing in, the team over at Kunos, released another cool trailer to showcase the console version of Assetto Corsa. We say console version, but other than the fact of running on consoles, there is nothing less about it, compared to the PC version. However, we all know (and interact) on the Internet, so you might be aware of 2 general concerns:
1/ that the game's strong point - the physics simulation - will be toned down in the console version
2/ once that is done, the PC version will follow also, in order to...
