    Working your way from ground up and tuning as well? I might give this one a try.

    Looks like a new version of Capcom's "automodellista". Hopefully, players can customise the garages.

    Welp, on the front the word Trueno doesn't exist, so yeah it might be a rip-off of the AE86.

    I’m not a fan of drifting but having a racing wheel now. I’m definitely interested in trying this since it’s sim and seems interesting. Just like Dakar 18 is different and dirt and wrc.

    Concerned with that fitment. They better have sliders for us to get that fitment we want.

    Licensed cars? What's the source for that...? I don't believe they got Toyota license.

    I won't hold my breath for this to turn out well, but I cannot ignore a game with an E30 3-series instead of just the M3!

    The quality of the visuals and the inclusion of Ebisu certainly lend it a degree of credence.

    It was on the Steam page, but it looks like it's been updated. It now just says "iconic drift vehicles". I wonder if something got lost in translation? Car Mechanic Simulator 2018 ran into all sorts of issues going from Polish to English.

    Looks interesting. I'm going to keep an eye on this "drift simulator".

    Unless it has official D1GP tracks and cars, I don't see how this is going to be any better than all those other cash grab drift games flooding Steam in the last few years. Apart from the customization, there's nothing you can't already do in Assetto with mods.

    It has, or at least claims to have, Ebisu.

    Like I said above, any content this game would have will almost certainly already have a mod version available in Assetto (discounting console version of course). I have all 5 versions of Ebisu in AC already, and the AE86 (3 versions to boot). Physics will almost certainly be worse in this game than AC. So unless the customization is really really mindblowing, it doesn't really have any USP. You might as well buy CarX Drift Racing while you're at it.

    The existence of mods in one game on one (expensive and inevitably fussy) platform does not negate the value of anything similar anywhere else. I've been there, done that on relying upon mods for things. Not interested in going back to that, nor to investing in PC gaming again. :indiff:

    Well it depends how much you're willing to put in. I game on a 4 year old laptop that I also use for work and other things, so it's not expensive by any means since the costs are spread out. In fact I save money compared to consoles because Steam sales are dirt cheap and until I got my PS4 I was still using my 10 year old Logitech G25 to play Assetto. It's only as fussy as you want to be. Steam is literally on click install and play. Modding wise, if you know how to download, unzip and copy paste folders it's pretty much all there is. Sure it's not as plug-and-play as console, but for the small extra step, the possibilities are endless.

    I do think some games are better on consoles (arcade racers, and exclusives obviously can be much better optimised). But for proper sims and indies, or games that are open to modifications I would much rather have the flexibility on PC. Another advantage is you carry your game library with you forever. My PS1 and PS3 games are all gathering dust, but if I want I can still play Grand Prix Legends after a session of Assetto Corsa.

    At the end of the day, I think PC & console are supplementary to each other, but each to their own :tup: Tying back to this thread, I haven't seen anything from this game that is supplementary to the experience I already have in AC, so I have no need for it (happy to be proven wrong of course, more good games is always good).
