Assetto Corsa Starts Modding Support
Ever since Kunos Simulazioni first announced Assetto Corsa, extensive support for community content & mods has always been high up the agenda for the new title.
Many modding teams are putting their hopes into the still to be released title and it seems like their hopes won’t be disappointed as Kunos is already reaching out to the modding community way before the title’s release.
The following invitation was posted in the RaceDepartment forums as Kunos invites interested modders to get in touch with their 3D artist:
Our 3D vehicle lead artist has some free time (?) during the day and is dedicating this to you.
He hates writing on forums, emails, pms etc, so I will give you his skype handle and you are free to contact him for voice chat, whenever you want.
I really really ask you kindly to get organised, gather multiple relevant questions and ask them once at a time, here’s a proposal on how to do this:
- Discuss your doubts, problems and projects here in the forums.
- Gather your questions.
- Decide which one of you will talk directly with Luca
- Call him on Skype for a voice chat and have fun
- Repeat and don’t be afraid if he can’t always reply. The actual game comes always first of course.
Also, Luca will reply as many of your questions as possible, except the ones that can’t reply because of NDA, Licensing, or other professionally related reasons. I hope you understand.
Here you go, take it easy!
Luca skype handle: lucamir
skype nickname: mannaggia!
