    Too bad they do not show the “new” cars…
    The formula masters i think is a nice addition! :D

    Montoya, on the website, I read : Release: TBA.

    Where did you find that info about Q3?

    ScHiRoCk: I suppose more footage will come shortly. Now the the website is online, I suppose we’ll see more within a few days.

    At least we see the Lada in this trailer :happy:

  • dknine

    judging from the video, the track looks very good :cool:

    i saw some japanese race few weeks ago on Okayama, think that the gtrevo cars will do great on this track aswell :happy:

    If there’s anything I don’t like from looking at the trailer is that the cars look as if it’s floating off the track- it’s a problem that persistently plagued a lot of racing/driving games back in the 90s’ but along with Race Pro before this, it seems that Simbin still haven’t mastered the art of ambient occlusion.

  • MoodyB

    Looks like they still haven’t allowed dynamic shadows in the cockpit from signs, trees, etc… :sad: Why they disabled this in Race07 / Evo I’ll never know as modern pc’s are more than capable of handling it now, as they were a few years ago when GTR2 & rFactor were released.

    If anyone knows how to enable these for all cars in Evo, I’d love to find out – its annoying that some cars like the Caterham have them working, but others don’t…

    Does this include any improvements to the game engine graphics wise?

    I think if there were significant changes Simbin wouldn’t be keeping this a secret.

    I’m still waiting for them to announce something new. Who wants to make a bet that Simbin offers their Lizard engine with largely old content and very little new content? I’ve seen so many recycled things in the last 3 mods they’ve sold… is there anyone else who thinks this is bad practice?

    I can see recycling SOME stuff, like scenery and stuff like that, but I’m talking about things like physics code, car models, textures that are older than my nieces…

    Simbin needs to blow us away again. I want them to take my negative comments and shove them straight up my own ass and make me feel stupid. That’s how bad I want Simbin to make something new and unique. Because if the Lizard engine comes out and it’s just a bunch of their old stuff ported over, recycled and graphically enhanced, I think I might climb a clock tower.

    The last racing game, released by Simbin, that got any mainstream attention at all was GTR 2. It was praised for its great graphics, game play, and depth of content which included excellent opponent AI and a driving school. Now Simbin is complaining that they can’t get the mainstream interested in their products and that this is a niche genre.

    Reminds me a guy who flipped burgers all his life complaining about not making Six figures a year.

  • paskowitz

    No Mustang… :angry: how can you include both the Camaro and the Challenger but not the stang. Its like the holy trinity of muscle cars. Whatever I am sucker for this kind of stuff and I will probably buy it.

    The holy trinity of muscle cars, lol. He’s right actually, a Mustang is very much needed.
    SCCA1981 Saleen Mustang mod could be a great add-on. Small changes might be needed, all and all its a good looking Mustang.

  • ayaxr

    I think the mustang might be caught up to EA NFS titles only I might be wrong…. about recycled material..that may very well be the case which is why I see all these releases as addon packs to a bigger picture… what am I looking forward to on this? Additional tracks at simbin quality and accurateness, additional car, mainly street cars which is what I think a sim of the order GTR2,GTREVO is missing, it makes things be in grasp a bit more to home being able to drive them. So long as physics are up to par. :)

    It will be interesting to see what they do with their first Lizard title on PC. Hopefully with development costs split between the console and PC platforms there should be scope for more new content. I suppose the key thing is what license they opt for. If they stick with the WTCC license then some “recyling” is surely inevitable.

    I’ve seen so many recycled things in the last 3 mods they’ve sold… is there anyone else who thinks this is bad practice?

    Since Simbin have sold GTR Evo, STCC and now Race On as expansions for RACE 07 then I don’t see it as bad practice. Like many I am surprised that we haven’t got a new engine for Q3 2009 but I still think Simbin offer good value. If you want something new try iRacing.

  • kabronyproductions

    please no more add ons and release lizard engine…….
    i regret getting stcc and for sure not getting this one….

    We have to understand that what SimBin is doing for us is more then just any other company. Race07 was released on October 1, 2007 since then they keept the game alive with add-ons like GTR Evo and STCC, now Race ON to be released.
    I think it will be another year or so until we get our hands on a Lizard engine. Still, it takes about 2 years for a game company to release a new race genre game. We are lucky to have such add-ons on such good quality.
    My hopes are, that SimBin quits touring cars for the next release. And takes on something much bigger, like LMS or ALMS, maybe a new racing legends game.

    I would kill for a GTL 2. Maybe with 80’s touring/muscle?
