The day has finally arrived: Porsche officially debuts in RaceRoom Racing Experience. Originally announced earlier this year, the initial three racing machines are now available in the PC sim.
Swedish developer Sector3 Studios began announcing the three included cars last weekend. As a reminder, the three machines from the Stuttgart manufacturer are as follows:
With nine cars planned in total, the initial three are the perfect complement to one another. Ranging from the unforgiving GT3 Cup, to the lighter and faster GT3 R, there’s something for everyone.
Each costs $4.73 — that’s 399 virtual Race Points (vRP) using the in-game currency system. When it comes to featured liveries the GT3 Cup has 32 to choose from, the GT3 R has 20, and the GT4 Clubsport has… one. Though as acknowledged by Sector3, a series of liveries for the Clubsport are coming at a later date.
In preparation for the three Porsche racers, R3E saw an update with the following list of changes:
- Added a default profile for Fanatec CSL Elite PS4
- Added a new selector for the strength of the collision effects in the FFB options menu
- VR – Added an optional start-up argument to make the monitor presentation of the VR session be toggled on from the start, without needing to use the keybind. Mostly used for events or regular streamers. Add “monitor” to your VR start-up argument, for example “-vr 1.5 monitor” to toggle on the monitor presentation.
- VR and Triple Screen – Fixed an issue with skydome being offset vertically as well as appearing broken in rearview mirrors on large track scenes like the Nuerburgring.
- Triple Screen – Tweaked clip plane value for camera to avoid seeing cut objects, at the cost of some flickering in the distance.
- AI – further improvements to make AI more careful around pit-entry, decreasing risk of AI overtaking a pitting car on wrong side of path
AI – further improvements of AI side-by-side logic
- AI – Improved their decision making in changing tyres or not when having to refuel in a non mandatory pitstop race
- Potential fix for a 64-bit crash when entering a race with triple screen enabled, after applying changes to graphics options.
- Fixed a crash reported when using an OSW / DD wheel with MMOS FFB 2014 in 64-bit
- Fixed a wrong Bosch label on the Callaway C7R virtual display.
- Fixed an issue where the front headlights would turn off if the taillights were broken by an impact.
- Code reworked to attempt and get rid of an issue where some controllers are sending throttle and brake inputs constantly until the user moves the wheel or a pedal.
- Fixed a case in Spa Combined when game would think player has left the pitlane if player was leaning against the exterior wall at La Source.
- Changed replay comment field in media hub to be multi-line. Increased max length when renaming replays to 128 and comment to 256.
