Because it might be in his job description, Marco Massarutto is actually doing some fine work in teasing us. Now it's dreampack#2's turn.
Started with a nice shot of the SCG 003Cs training on the Nords..
.. followed by a little riddle with this interior shot (most probably from the RUF rgt)..
..aand a surprise non-official shot with these
There's not much announced about the content, but from the little that we know, dreampack#2 will contain:
- The laser-scanned Circuit de Catalunya...
For the record, this should be noted here. Or maybe you've missed it. Ok, maybe not . Anyhoo, the AC 1.2 update hit us on July 31st and it was quite a substantial one, with important evolutions in all areas. The most important ones I'd say - the FFB and the AI. One step ahead for the FFB with a cleaner signal. This might require re-adapting to the cars and driving but once done, you don't want to go back. And what better opportunity to train if not with the improved AI. The "smarter" AI will offer some serious challenge depending on the chosen combo. It will change lines, it...
About a week back, Stefano decided to do these live coding sessions where he fixes/implements different stuff in our favorite sim, while also having a conversation with the people watching. Today's episode (3rd one in the series) was a 'bit special, as it included a rather long Q&A session. And a Blackout .
Here are a few notes on the stuff I found interesting. It's not exactly quoting word-for-word, but no modification to the message itself was made .
Q: Do you have any plans for Assetto Corsa 2 ?
A: No plans. We as a company, work on short...
Every journey starts with a single step.

For Oculus it was somewhere here (ok, ok, first you need to put your shoes on, or flip-flops if you wish, but we’ll leave that stuff out). My favorite part must be this one:
[..]2) Logo/s. I am listing the organization as "Oculus", I plan on using that name on my VR projects from here on out. The HMD itself is tentatively titled "Rift", if you have better ideas, let me...
Yes, you read that right. In a series of tweets, Stefano Casillo (the lead programmer over at Kunos) announced that on December 1st, 2015 the multiplayer lobby of netKar Pro will be shutdown, and the software will become available as freeware (and no longer supported).
Until then, the license verification was already deactivated, which means that if you have a pay code you can share it with friends and the product will get activated for unlimited time.
For those of you that don't know what nK is, I'll say only this: it's beyond...
Embrace for Dream Pack #1 !
Finally, the teasing is over (well, sort-of). The first Dream Pack in Assetto Corsa's timeline, is available for pre-order on steam, with a special (and incredible) price : 9.99 E (full price will be 14.99 E, after launch).
Launch date is also announced, March 11th, a date I'm sure a lot of simracers marked in the calendar already. I can see those sick leave flowing like crazy beginning of next week . Come to think abo.. oh, sorry, of course I wouldn't..
What's included ?...
While there's still no announced date for the Dream Pack release (other than Q1 2015), we are definitely getting closer. The teasing increased lately on their FB page, and some hints are being published by the devs on their personal accounts. Like the one from Luca, on Feb/19: "1.15am - #AssettoCorsa Dev Team and Betatesters are doing a GREAT job together on the incoming update. Hold on! The best is yet to come!". Good news and bad news in the same time, because we can see them cars and roads, but we...
Or actually both v1.1 and the dream pack #1. Improvements in v1.1 will be free and available for all current users, while the Dream Pack #1 will be paid, without any info on the price yet. Just the promise that is going to be released in Q1 2015.
Here is the press release:
Our development team is working hard on the next release of Assetto Corsa, that will upgrade the main version of the game and will include important additions. We would also like to thank you for all the constructive criticism and helpful tips you submit to our...
It's time to get the cars rolling again, so we'll start discussions of a new season. Provisional date for the first race is middle of February (we'll decide together the calendar) but until then plenty of things to agree on.
Tomorrow, new topics and polls will be created, don't hesitate to get involved in the discussions, especially if you'd like to take part in the races .
See you soon.
Playing with the fans using a 3 days countdown, the hour finally came:

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 !
"The RUF-Automobile license for Assetto...
About two months since the release of 1.0RC, Kunos team launches the 1.0 version of Assetto Corsa. The game is now out of "Early Access" and joins the market as a finished product. However, this doesn't mean the development is over, far from it. Lots of content remains to be brought by the team as free content or DLC during the next year. And we already know the quality we can expect.
As a bonus (and as a tradition) we should keep an eye on their FB page on December 31st. Another important announcement to be made .
Assetto Corsa 1.0RC is...

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...
Whoo hoo ! The awaited 1.0 version is out, after a few weeks of total silence (and probably hard hard work)! 1 year and 8 months down the line from the Tech Preview this is the first feature complete released version of Assetto Corsa. Of course there will be some bugs and issues here and there to be iron out - hence the RC title - but I'm sure it's gonna be a treat !
I'd write more, but I'm eager to go on track, and you're probably too busy racing anyways , so I'll leave you with the full list of added features and the release trailer. See you...
..and more ! A big announcement today on AC's fb page, with cool information about what the near (and not so near) future will bring to Assetto Corsa. A special mention goes to AC member the_meco, proving once more that outstanding work does not go unnoticed and "unpunished" .
"Dear Assetto Corsa fans
We know that in the last few weeks we have been very silent, but there was a valid reason; all our resources and everybody in the dev team have been working real hard in order to finish Assetto Corsa and to prepare a preview Release Candidate...
Yesterday (or Sep 29th, depending on your time zone) Kunos organized a press event, to give their "precious" a proper launch. It was organized directly within Autodromo di Vallelunga (where their HQ also is) and since they were at a racetrack.. there had to be cars. And not just "any": almost the entire lineup of cars present in the game was brought at Vallelunga "in flesh". Or so it seems from the pictures that we've been able to spot on the net .
Will leave you with an approximate translation of the coverage provided by...
As the server is on 24/7, why not put it to good use ?
Club type races, not a part of the official season's calendar (if one in progress). Every week, 2 races will be held, with the same combo, this way everybody can have a shot of making it to the race.
Club races mean no specific registration is required. You can however let others know you plan to participate - more drivers attract even more drivers .
UPDATE: You can reserve a car for a specific event. Your spot will be guaranteed and...
The current planned date for the first race is beginning of October, hopefully all the important decisions will be clarified until then. Some of the main topics, are or will be opened for discussion shortly. But if anything you are interested in is not covered, feel free to ask, or even create a specific thread (in case you need feedback from other racers).
