Heavyweights, Muscle Cars & Hot Hatch Classics

I'm pleased to announce the following new special events that have been released into the game! They will appear periodically in the special events section, but this is more likely as I have increased the number from 7 to 10.

  • Heavyweight Face-off: A special event for cars that pack a punch in both performance and weight.
  • American Muscle: There is no replacement for displacement, prove your big-block is the most tricked out of them all.
  • 80s Hot-hatch Showdown: Put on your sunglasses and put your favourite cassette in, it's time to see which classic hot hatch is the top dog.

There will be further changes to the special events in the coming weeks and I plan to do a Member Update early next week. For now, I hope you enjoy your weekend!

  • News items are now more description, correct and useful

The game is intended to be easy to play but is built on a foundation of complex models to provide a rich and detailed game world!

  • Semi-realistic lap times Algoritims calculate car performance and how quickly cars can go round a track!
  • Jalopies and thirsty beasts! Vehicles wear, more so during races, which affects performance and they also burn fuel!
  • Cars are not created equal! Highly strung performance cars wear at faster rates than more ordinary every day cars and cost more to maintain and fuel.
  • One careful owner - NOT! Buying performance upgrades can wear a car out faster and cause it to burn more fuel.
  • Price Guide Perfect* *Not really. But the car valuations in the game are built on a model which takes a wide variety of factors into consideration and is on the whole fairly accurate.
  • What's your best price mate? Simulated second hand cars including mileage/wear/rarity!
  • Try your luck Classifieds last realistic periods and if not bought by another player, they may be bought by simulated citizens based on the car's price. Got patience? Price high and hope for the best!
  • Class of 2000 Car class calculation to show the racing potential of cars and to allow a variety cars to compete!
  • In-game forum! Chat with MotorNations inhabitants to discuss strategies, cars, competitions or just about anything else. But please keep it civil!
  • Join the Discord server! For real time discussions with the other players of MotorNation! From automotive memes to discussing the frailties of different engines, if it can be discussed it probably has been here!
  • Support the game for more! Spread the word or buy membership to help fund the game so that it can reach it's potential!
  • So many ideas such little time... The game as it stands today is the bare shell of what I'd like to create and I hope with a little luck and support I can build it into something amazing.
