Project CARS – Easter Build Available
Slightly Mad Studios have released a special Easter build of their WMD-powered Project CARS title, containing some nice surprises.
The build comes with a fun easter egg hunt for all members to participate in, the quickest three members to locate all five eggs in the Project CARS track environment can win some cool SMS mugs & pens.
But there’s even more as the build also comes with one big Easter egg for all members to enjoy – A classical version of Spa Francorchamps!
In true Easter spirit, the track can’t simply be selected…it needs to be found. So fire up the newest build and search for that historical Belgian roller coaster…. the WMD forums will provide some clues for those stuck in the search.
Build 438 (28/3/13, Team Member+)
* Doppler settings and dynamics of fly by refined

All settings bar foggy, heavy fog, overcast and clear5 have been edited
