Beta release is live!

8 months since the Alpha launched, it's Beta time! Game accounts have been reset.

As per the last news item, it has been an incredibly long journey to get to this point and for the first time I will be actively publicising the game. I'm hoping that people will like it and I will gain some support to keep this project going - fingers crossed!

Other noteworthy changes since v0.11.12:

  • Can now activate a player account via a link in the email which pre-fills the code
  • Minor T&Cs and privacy policy update

Incoming Beta Release!

I'm currently preparing for the beta release which I am hoping to do before Christmas. For the Beta, the game will also be reset but the existing accounts will remain to save people having to sign up again.

It has been an incredibly long journey to get to this point and for the first time I will be actively publicising the game. I'm hoping that people will like it and I will gain some support to keep this project going /crosses fingers!

New Road Rally Special Stage!

Following on from the last update, a new special event has been added - the Road Rally Special Stage. Originally I had intended there to be a set of new restriction types for this new special event, however on the realisation that this will take quite a bit more work than I'd hoped, on top of a lot of other changes already made, I've taken the decision to implement these at a later stage. In the meanwhile I wanted to add this new content whilst preparing for the Beta release of the game.

Other noteworthy changes since v0.11.2:

  • Various bug fixes and updates relating to the below
  • Began adding a lot of infrastructure for more granular race restrictions

Introducing Special Events!

The latest update sees the introduction of special events. These are random events that will take place typically every other day and are designed to provide a bit of variety and encourage more exploration in the cars in the game.

Initially there are only drag racing events, but other events are planned to come in a very near future! These drag racing events replace those in the standard class base races.

  • Fixed error when selling car which has previously been raced
  • Fixed possible bug where more than one race was scheduled per race series
  • Significant re-working behind the scenes to allow for greater scope for races in the future
