16th May 2023 v0.46.0
Capacity Improvements & Members Choice XVII!

Welcome to the release of the 17th Members Choice Pack!

  • 1998 Dooyae Muris 0.8 SE+:
    With a chirpy looking front end, a thrummy 3 cylinder under the bonnet and a practical shape it became dependable post-retirement shopping transport.
  • 1995 McLaurence S1 6.1 LM:
    A celebration of Le Mans success, the LM version provided a more track orientated take compared to the standard road car.
  • 1994 Roamer B20 2.0 Turbo Coupé:
    A classic example of a relatively humdrum car looking resplendent in coupé form. It was the fastest they'd ever produced at the time and looked great.
  • 1982 Faerro Milieu 2.9 QV:
    One of the most affordable ways to get the badge and often overlooked. With an Italian mid-engine V8 powering it, enjoy the experience for far less.
  • 1997 Rheanol Sofra 2.5 RXE Executive:
    (Bonus) Executive French cars weren't a big seller in the UK but more popular in Europe. With French luxury and a dependable 5-cylinder Swedish designed power-plant, perhaps this is one worth revisiting?

As usual the above vehicles may be available new or second hand in the classifieds, as appropriate, from time to time! All players can access these vehicles. A big thank you to those that have contributed towards getting these in-game!

Single Race Capacity Improvements!

Whilst it might look broadly similar at first glance, the capacity of the single race events has now doubled with the opportunity to scale it up as I see fit. Further changes will roll out in future!

  • Each race will now split into heats when the capacity for a race is exceeded.
  • When races are split into heats, any vacant entrant slots will be filled by AI competitors in a similar way to before.
  • Heats are currently limited to two but they have been tested higher than this and this will likely come in the near future!
  • Race results now have medals for the top 3.
  • Player's position is now highlighted in race results.
  • Max players are no longer visible as it is semi-irrelevant.
  • The join button for full races is now 'greyed' out and reports 'Full' instead.
  • Viewing a single race now uses the event section shared UI component.
  • Much re-factoring of legacy code! More to do but this makes it easier to work with.
Vehicle Updates
  • McLaurence S1: Corrected data and balanced stats following the inclusion of the S1 LM
  • McLaurence S1: Additional photo

With the Job Centre offering the ability to do much more in the game, there has never been a better time to join! Every penny makes a difference and it only costs from as little as £1.99 a month! (when paid yearly)

Don't miss out on the full experience!
