does the Audi quattro race car be in the same class as the ford capri and bmw 320 turbo?
as that class needs more variety :)

And this track looks like a ton of fun. Excellent choice for the first DLC track.

Strange thing is when I log in the PSN store and start typing RUAPUNA on the search the pack appears briefly and than vanishes. I think it's gonna be like the Racing Icons, but I hope not. You guys deserve the same level of awesomeness that we have :D:D

Track is a blast, and the Audi 90 is a beast. The only thing is the R18 doesn't sound quite right to me. Still a blast to drive. Haven't tried the A1 yet.

It's like all things with PSN - when the store updates, the store updates - and it'll likely be available at that time. It's always been that way since the PS Store debuted on the PS3 many years ago (except that it changed from Thursday to Tuesday a few years back). Patience is the name of the game when dealing with the PS Store, especially in N.America.

Hello. Disappointed realism in the new addition. At Audi R18 e tron quattro really cut the maximum speed on straight Le Mans and northern loop above 284 km / h does not accelerate, in a slip streamers 290-295 km / h speed limit, although really at Le Mans 2014 car accelerates to 330km / h, but and tests of the pack it too dispersed in Le Mans almost 330km / h, not to mention the fact that the developers themselves have indicated a maximum speed of 338 km / h.

Azure Flare
21-07-2015, 19:07
The one modeled is more likely the sprint race downforce package, so of course it's not quite as quick in a straight line. You'll find that it's faster than the RWD and Marek P1 cars.


It's too expensive

Don't know where you live, but it's $5.49 in the states. If you can't afford that, you probably shouldn't be playing video games.

Thank you Ian, and the SMS crew.

Here in Chicago, I have downloaded both the free car and the DLC pack. 5.49.... You guys have bar none THE BEST PRICES on your DLC relative to the content. Hats off, and thanks!

The Audi 90 IMSA GTO is great (not tested the other cars yet). The Ruapuna Park track seems to be the Holy Land for rammers.
There are larges spaces around the track so they push you out of the track without hesitation.
I raced on Ruapuna Park GP and I hallucinated while trying to stay on the track. Almost everyone was ramming everyone.
This track can be great but recommened to race in private lobbies (leagues, friends...), this will be very hard to find a clean lobby (well much like all tracks).
Otherwise this DLC is very interesting and cheap.

I personally had the Grass issue as well (it was a lot wore though), first when I tried The Audi A1 on one of the UK-Tracks (i don't remember).
2nd time was on the new track with the IMSA GTO.

For me, just exiting, choosing another combo, load that up and exit and switch back worked fine.
So it is just the first time and just with a few combos for me.

Obviously you are joking aren't you?
Try iRacing for example, the track would cost you approx. $15AU and the cars about $13AU each.

Thanks SMS for this DLC, a good variety of cars and 5 layouts of fast flowing track from NZ.:D

Im pretty sure this dlc was constructed with the game. Just put out ahead of bug fixes. Actually, I never seen a game put out dlc before fixing major bugs and glitches (ps4). It would be sad if they invested in devs to build DLC content while major game bugs still exist. I decline on this content until update 3.0 comes out to fix the FA inconsistent AI, game crashes,tire heating, controller problems, locked lobby races (Drive button), unsaved tuning, Pit strategy glitches, car improvements to match simulator quality, and many more fixes. I also think It should be free for people who are still suffering from all these game bugs since launch.

I've never had so much for so little money. Three cars seems nothing, but they are three AWESOME cars, not that crap they pull in other games dlcs. And I'm not talking about the racing genre, I'm talking about the whole industry... The Racing Icons is another example, five amazing crafted cars for a good price.

YES! We know the game has issues. The game has massive amounts of issues
YES! SMS are working on those. There should not have been so many prior to release , we appreciate the work but the bugs just keep coming.
YES! It can be frustrating. Frustrating for some of the people is a understatement , some are not even able to play ... e.g online and so on.
YES! Good, fresh and low-priced content can help people get through the pain. Give back to the community that has supported something that isn't any ware near a complete product.
GIVE! The team a few more months and then judge again. I am willing to do this but it is growing old , a few more months , some have been waiting 2 months already .... 6 months it should be ok?

PS: l dont know why l did the GIVE! thing :rolleyes-new:

Also you can drive DLC cars online if host have a DLC.

pCARS isn't the only game that sells DLC and this game delivers high quality DLC with low price. I don't see any problem there.
Just... think about other racing sims (iRacing, R3E......) ;) ;)

You're a funny guy.
On one day you praise the game and the devs, and on another day you're the complete opposite.
Why is that?

What does it help to complain everyday, l'm wondering.
All we can do is to have trust in the team.
They know very well how this industry works and what happens when you, as a developer, waste your customers' trust.
So l'm certain the team knows whats at stake, they only want to give us the best product they can.

I encounter numerous bugs every week, but l dont come to point them out, because l dont think the devs get more motivated to improve their game, the more moaning and complaining they read.

Just my opinion, though.

Ever listened to the Dragon Age Inquisition Theme? Freaking awesome!

Can't believe the moaning about something you don't have to buy.
In Pcars if the host loads up Ruapana you can race on it for FREE .Other games like say CoD host loads a map you don't have its bye bye for you .
Host forces all same car and picks DLC cars you don't have well you can race those to .
The team making the DLC are not the same people that work on AI and physics etc so why whine about bugs and DLC in the same sentence ?They are unrelated .
You can pick and choose the DLC you want so it can be as expensive or as cheap as you want .And the price of this dlc is cheap .

The devs that fix bugs are not the same devs that make new content. Having devs sitting around doing nothing until all bugs have been fixed and only then start making things so the new content will be available much later would be rather silly, especially since the majority of the players are enjoying the game very much right now so new content is welcomed already. Like not putting plants and flowers in your garden until the plumber fixed your drain.

I'm wondering how many more times this needs to be repeated before everyone gets it.

Exactly, thats one of the (many) things i love about this game.

Remember reading a quote from Ian Bell, something along the lines of lots of tracks & some well selected cars, I was never a fan of forza's "1000 cars & only 2 tracks" philosophy
Who needs 27 different types of Skyline anyway?? A small DLC of excellent cars with no fillers is the way to go.

I think the track selection throughout the whole game is also spot on, I was slightly disappointed when I watched a youtube video of Ruapuna whilst at work the night it appeared on time trial, it just looked flat & boring, BUT after just a few laps the wisdom of the developers became apparent, its an absolute peach of a track.

I actually think one of the largest 'wins' is the move away from a Season Pass. At first that's weird, because in a game like this, and on the basis of the DLC that's come so far, I'd quite happily pick up a Pass.

However, because you (as a developer/SMS) rely on putting out DLC that can only be bought individually, it means that the lesser quality the DLC the less uptake there is (and the less commercial value it makes).

With a Season Pass you can essentially feed 1-2 juicy packs of DLC and then let the (drive for) quality drop off and churn out mixed quality. Those that bought Season Passes have already handed over their money and those that haven't might still pick it up or leave it - but you've made overall more money because a Season Pass plays into the completionist psyche a lot of gamers (and anyone who enjoys a hobbie!) have. A lot of people struggle at the thought of not having everything for a game they love...

Additionally, as Ian and the team mentioned post-launch, a Season Pass normally requires a fair level of identification of what's coming for your Pass (unless you're an IP with a near-cult level of dedicated followers (see: CoD/BF) who will buy Passes almost irrespective of what they're promised). By moving away from the that, the cuffs come off.

And lastly, because the community is actually still so strong for PCARS - despite the mentalist fringe that turn up in almost every thread at least once (they help the rest of us stay grounded/rational) - there's open debate and potential guidance for what gets put into the latter DLC sets.

How is that not a win? Sure, we'd all love it for free, but then the game wouldn't exist if there was no money spent by players.

Had a race on the i think it was the B circuit(one with hairpin & esses section) last in in RUF GT car.

Track was an absolute blast, apart from the short run to hairpin there doesnt seem to be any straight, great fun- give it a go

I love how these layouts have that "short track" feel to them. Definitely NOT for the fragile race cars.

I especially hope that this part comes alive, because it was the main reason that a season pack was dropped and the extra content was called 'On Demand'. So I don't hope that most of the content is already decided and partly developed by SMS. People post here great suggestions for new cars and vote for new tracks (Zandvoort and Interlagos seem popular. Yeah!). Does someone know if there is some sort of procedure by which new content will be incorporated in the game? Do the devs look at requests on this forum? Or are our posts mainly wishful thinking? :rolleyes:

I just want to say, that this DLC, and the 1st one also are the way to go.

They are cheap, and will give us lots of fun for our money.

The cars are superb, the sounds are awesome, and Ruapuna...
Ohh, how I love that. It will not be my favorite track (that is Zolder) but definately one of those I will race a lot on.
Its beautiful, fun to drive, and challenging.
Did not think, that it will make it into Project Cars.

On the same note, I know you are working on tracks like Indianapolis, and Daytona, that would be very welcome additions to the game,
but I think these not-so-well known racetracks might be the way to go.
The licences should be cheap, and they are great racetracks.

So thank you again guys for a nice DLC, can't wait for the next one.

I'm not saying they are bad cars but all together all DLC is going to cost $200 + . That's getting a bit ridiculous.

Funny - if you buy a real car you can purchase a good mid-class car for about 30000€. which has everything you need to drive. But if you want several more gimmicks, leather equippement or tuning kits with wide tires and stronger engines you have to pay as well. So your former 30000€ Standart car can easily cost double or more. Are you complaining about that, too?

When it comes to computer games, people expect everything for free. Sorry, for my opinion you got a complete game for your money with tons of cars and track (ok, not talking about still present bugs - but that's an completely different topic). DLC contend is something additional, and thinking just because some privat modders have been so generous to offer free content for other games, this must be the standart for a commercial producer as well is simply wrong. No one is forced to buy and not having it doesn't limit the functionality of the original game.
I think the price for pCars DLC content is fair enough and who can't affort it - sorry, not the problem of SMS. If you want caviar and champagne instead of bread and mineral-water you have to pay the higher prize as well and can't complain, that you can't affort it and it must be cheaper for all or even free of costs!

Agree about the tracks. There are a few in this game that I've never seen in other games & they've quickly become some of my favourites. So far I haven't been spending much time on the tracks that you tend to get with most games (Spa, Nord, Monaco, Barcelona etc). Not to say that I don't love those tracks, but it's nice to get to know new corners & slowly improve your times.

The devs that fix bugs are not the same devs that make new content. Having devs sitting around doing nothing until all bugs have been fixed and only then start making things so the new content will be available much later would be rather silly, especially since the majority of the players are enjoying the game very much right now so new content is welcomed already. Like not putting plants and flowers in your garden until the plumber fixed your drain.

I'm wondering how many more times this needs to be repeated before everyone gets it.
Interesting analogy, however, if the plumber was taking 2 months to fix the drain I would forego the flowers and spend the money on another plumber or at least some extra help! Although I guess a few pretty flowers scattered around helps to hide the crap that keeps gushing out of the drain. (another analogy there if you want) ;)

The same problem: I`ve earned a lot of career podium finishes as well (25 since yesterday, more than 150 total), but could not unlock any of the new invitational events. Does that mean that everyone who has earned more than 26 podiums (that means the rest of the world) before installing the DLC is not able to trigger the invitationals? :hurt:

Does that mean, that we have to start an new savegame :livid: in order to break the 22/24/26 Limits? Start from the beginning and loose all unlocked invitationals and championships, more than 200 hours of career mode races for... nothing? :mad:

Bad analogy, since what people are suggesting is that the gardener starts helping the plumber which won't do much apart from the garden not improving.

Today, Project CARS continues its programme of continual updates and fresh content delivery today with its first Track Expansion featuring New Zealand’s Ruapuna Park circuit and three iconic Audi racing cars.

For more information, check out the frontpage story:

http://www.projectcarsgame.com/home/audi-ruapuna-park-track-expansion-now-available

Great news! :yes:


P.S. I think there might be one 'today' too many both in the above quote and on the front page? :)

P.P.S. It should probably be "Comprised of five unique layouts" not "Comprising of five unique layouts"?

P.P.P.S. I believe it is 'premiere', not 'premier' in "Comprised of five unique layouts, Ruapuna Park International Raceway is New Zealand's premiere motor racing facility, (...)"

I have 3 career saves - 2 with everything completed that I can do (2 & 4 Team Championship Wins still locked due to the glitch) and using these 2 saves I cannot do the new content. However with a relatively new 3rd career, I was able to do these 3 new events without unlocking anything - they were there straight away on my calendar.

I've been a Forza enthusiast since Forza 2. And I never once bought a season pass or a single DLC from Forza cause I couldn't justify spending $ on hit and miss content. I would "buy" the free content though. However, I like Slightly Mad's philosophy in their DLC releases and I've bought everything so far. The quality of cars (and tracks) is superb! Looking forward to spending much more on Project Cars!

It is still showing "Verdiene 22/24/26 mal einen Karrierplatz auf dem Siegerpodest" which means "Earn 22/24/26 Podiums". The 3 Invitationals are not yet showing there.

But I can see them in "Auszeichnungen" (gold-silver-bronze) in Bronze, last row. They are dark grey like every event that is not yet won.

I have two saves. One started on release day (I am in season 5 currently) and even if I have a lot of podiums, the 3 invitationals are not unlocked > still show "earn 24 podiums". I have a new save but I am only in season 2 and I guess I know I have less than 26 podiums on this one.But I also got 2 new invitationals unlocked on my first career (the two one linked to the RUF GT3 I guess)

Since DLC update, my career stats appear to be wrong. Profile say that I spend 246 hours in single player and only 4 hours in career > wrong as I did 5 career season. Also historal objectives are not correct anymore (they say that I have not completed any season)

as that class needs more variety :)

Yes thats true, the class Group 4 & 5 (known also as DRM) needs more variety, but not with the IMSA Audi. I would think of cars like:

Porsche 935

your analogy is weak. If the plumber takes 2 month, there is no need for finished bricklayer, carpenter, floorlayer and all the other guys to stay behind the plumber , instead of working on their new projects. They cannot help him.

I have to say, the two DLC packs that I’ve purchased (Racing Icons and Audi Ruapuna) have been awesome additions to PCARS. Additional racing cars are usually going to be welcome additions, but SMS have really chosen wisely the cars that they’re adding. Great to see the LMP 900 class filling out nicely, and the Audi 90 IMSA GTO looks like it’ll match up well on the track with the Trans-Am Mustang.

That Audi 90 GTO is quickly becoming one of my favorite cars in the game. Well done SMS, and keep up the great work.

The new DLC unlocked straight away for me on a newish career, however on 2 older careers with everything complete, it didn't. Have you been able to reproduce the 2 & 4 Team Championships Invitation not unlocking either? I'm really hoping I can get everything complete on the next patch.

Anyway, I've attached my game save for you to have a look.

I am seeing this issue with a savegame started day 1 of the public release. The Lemans 24 Hr Inivitational has been unlocked (which I believe requires 30 podiums), yet the DLC events still list the requirements and are locked. Will post my save file later.

Maybe it would be a good idea to have some kind of progress bar for unlockables so at least you can see if they're being counted. At the moment I am re-doing loads of races on my main career to see if I can get it to unlock and while I'm having fun doing this, I've got a piece of paper at the side of me marking each podium - but I won't know until I get to the minimum number before I find out if it's worked.

Maybe down the line features will be added that take ages to do - for example; unlock custom livery for finishing 500 online races, be pretty annoying to find out it had not even counted one.

Some of the class designations for the last two DLC packs are messed up. When driving a Ford Mustang Cobra and having "same class" selected, the Audi 90 GTO's will not join the race. If driving the GTO, you will be the ONLY GTO in a full field of Ford Cobra's. So apparently the GTO "Trans-AM" designation is bugged.

The Bentley Speed 8 is also messed up as only ONE shows up in a LMP 900 race when set to "same class" (while driving the BMW).

Elmo, could you pass this along to the guys working on the patch? I'm sure it's a five minute fix. I brought the issue up in the WMD forum after the first DLC was released and of course, there is no confirmation that anyone saw it.

AUDI R18 E-TRON QUATTRO LIVERY ERROR
During my extensive racing with the Audi R18 e-tron quattro I discovered the following error in it's livery.

There is a duplicate Castrol logo which appears to have been mirrored from the other side of the car. It should have Edge for Castrol Edge.

Some of the class designations for the last two DLC packs are messed up. When driving a Ford Mustang Cobra and having "same class" selected, the Audi 90 GTO's will not join the race. If driving the GTO, you will be the ONLY GTO in a full field of Ford Cobra's. So apparently the GTO "Trans-AM" designation is bugged.

The Bentley Speed 8 is also messed up as only ONE shows up in a LMP 900 race when set to "same class" (while driving the BMW).

Elmo, could you pass this along to the guys working on the patch? I'm sure it's a five minute fix. I brought the issue up in the WMD forum after the first DLC was released and of course, there is no confirmation that anyone saw it. I have more bugs to report and now I have ZERO idea where to post them.

speaking off class-related stuff, shouldnt 'multi-class' with LMP include GT cars? sorry if thats a known issue/problem but it sucks, i really wanted to go out on lemans and feel like god but instead there were a bunch of AI in similar cars. you can still draft off them etc but its not the same as when youre watching on TV and an LMP1 just blows by a GTE car like its standing still.

The Audi 90 is badass. I love it....this seems to me to be more suited to the bmw 320 group 5 class though ? The rest of the cars are pretty meh.

The track...I don't know. Not sold yet. It's not yielding much good racing from the few tries I've had. The inside corner ripple strips severely disrupt the car and passing is quite difficult with guys that are running similar pace to you. I can't see it being a regular on our calendar.

I admit I'm not up to date with the going rate on dlc, but $9 seems a bit much for one track and a handful of cars, only one of which is significantly different to the cars we already have. If the track was a genuine marquee track like the Melbourne GP, Suzuka, Interlagos etc I think it presents as at least better value.

Debate about value aside, weird that I paid less for it than you guys did. Was only NZD7.95 for me which is just over a dollar cheaper than the aussie price, once exchange rate is considered. I'm guessing PSN sets the final price.

We will as soon as we can reproduce it locally. So far we haven't been able to, and all items unlock as they should.

If any of you guys are experiencing this on PC, could you please attach your save game (zipped, to a post in this thread)?

If this can help a friend has just bought the DLC and invitational events are still unlocked even if he is in season 42 (with off course a lot of podiums). He is on ps4.

I can also add from my experience that i'm still unable (always on ps4) to unlock 2&4 championship invitational and 175 career laps invitational (even if i unlocked 500 and 1000 laps). I'll try to upload the save.

Hello,

I don't understand why the Audi 90 IMSA GTO is in the Trans-Am Class ? It's very different of the Ford, we can't race with. It seems like a Mercedes 190E 2.5 Evolution DTM no ?
Thanks

medse87
24-07-2015, 15:29
The Audi is way faster than the 190E. They are completely different. So, the best match for the Audi in the game is the Mustang. But irl the Audi was in the GTO class in 1989 in the USA competing against Corvettes, Fairladys and more.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=di6F0VAHDcY

I think in 88 Audi had a car in the TransAm class with the Audi 200, but was banned after dominating the season. Same happened 89 in the IMSA series.

So, I haven't compared the Audi 90 and the Mustang. I hope you can have some good races in MP with them.

But the gto class was filed with silhouette cars like the audi, the Racing spec cars were in the gtu class. I saw an interview of Hans Stuck, he said the 200 was a good car but a little unsafe and unstable and that the A90 solved the problem.

I don't see your point Reaper. Did I say something wrong? Where are the racing spec cars coming from you are mentioning. I just wanted to make clear that the 190E isn't even near the Audi 90. Or is the Mustang a racing spec car? I don't really know that car.

Maybe it is normal for the Audi 90 GTO, but the 'high clicking' sound on upshift and downshifts... is it correct that on upshifts you only hear this on high rpms (red) and on breaking without downshifting as well? It's strange that as soon as I hit the brakes, you get the clicking sound without even having to downshift?

Edit: did some research and it is the sound the turbo is making. :D

ChrisK
25-07-2015, 00:16
It's the blow off valve and it's normal.

We ran the Audi with the mustang yesterday at a few tracks and the mustang seems to be well out of its league against the Audi. It kind of begs the question...how much thought is going into these classes and the relative speed differences ? Maybe the mustang needs a more deft hand at tuning. The dtm merc is also in the same class as the 320 gr5. How does that work ?

Althougnim loving the Audi 90, I wonder about its longer term viability. You only get one livery and there isn't much competition in the class so basically the whole field is running not only identical cars but identical looks. It's going to get boring I think.

My opinion of this $8.25 DLC is it's about a 5/10 and I don't recommend people buy it.

TheReaper GT
25-07-2015, 00:18
About the Audi, back in the day, it was out of reach, the car joined the league and simply won all races, if with rain, lapping the third place, it was ridiculous. Hahaha

The Audi 200 did not get banned after the 88' season in Trans-Am I can assure you. I've watched Trans-Am like a hawk since the early 80's. Yes they won the manufacturer's championship that season but it wasn't a complete domination. Won 7 out of 13 races. Audi left Trans-Am to enter a GT class car in IMSA(using the same drivers with a new car aka Audi 90) because 1988 was the last year of the GT era in Trans-Am. GT racing was more popular in IMSA. 1989 saw a whole new alignment of classes in Trans-Am using only America Manufactures that would last until the 2000 season started.

The Audi 90 also was not banned from IMSA, Audi only wanted one season to prove the concept of using Quattro in road racing then they shifted focus to running in DTM Group A with the Audi V8 quattro in 1990-1992.

Like a hawk ? lol

They won 8 of 13. The next closet manufacturer won 2. 3 other manufactures won 1 each. I'd say that's a completly dominant performance by any measure. And while they may not have been literally banned as in; "Audi are now banned", the rules were changed so significantly to make sure that foreign manufacturers never dominated again....so in effect...they were banned by design. This is a very similar technique used by CAMS in Australia to get rid of the Nissan GT-R.

Umer Ahmad
25-07-2015, 10:28
I'll have to dig up the article from my Racer magazine but I'm pretty sure Trans-Am banned AWD after that season so that forced Audi to move to IMSA. The Audis destoyed the Trans-Am field, going around the RWD opponents on the outside in the marbles! They could take nearly whatever line they wanted.

I'll try to scan the article or at least a portion of it and post here later

medse87
25-07-2015, 11:00
Ok, maybe not banned. But they changed the rules to prevent Audi from taking part again with their 4WD concept. Maybe not the nicest thing to do, but who wants to see one manufacturer dominate.

I really like the Audi 90, and the R8 LMP900. The track is nice too. So, I can recommend buying the DLC.

I'd love to see that article.

Does that mean, that we have to start an new savegame in order to break the 22/24/26 Limits? Start from the beginning and loose all unlocked invitationals and championships, more than 200 hours of career mode races for... nothing?

Can you guys please check in your Driver Network Profile, under Career>Invitationals, if these three invitationals are showing there or if it's still showing "Earn 22/24/26 Podiums" hint?

Same problem here...46th season and haven't unlock the invitations... But I tryed in my other profile and the invitation unlock after earned 22 podiums. In new peofiles it works. Do I need restart all races?? Its not fair. I won all races an now I nees restart my carrer??? What's wrong???

DLCs are a good addition to extend long-term motivation, but it's useless, if it isn't integrated correctly. When I promise included career events for DLCs, it should be in there without having to delete the savegame first. Please improve this, otherwise DLCs are no longer worthwhile for me.

Now, in my new savegame, with ruapuna tracks unlocked, McLaren F1 Track Masters 3 HR Trophy is unlocked. I'm with 287 career laps. "Complete 175 Career Laps" still there locked but i have the invitation in the career mode. So i can play the event even if still locked in the menu
So, or I play without Ruapuna challenges or with "175 career laps" locked....

Is there a reason SMS gave the Audi 90 IMSA a 5 speed gear box?

Other titles give it a 6 speed manual gear box, the specs of the car describe a manual 6 speed gearbox and according other game publishers it has a 6 speed gear box?

Why the discrepancy?

Because rules allowed 5 gears. Whilst gearbox had 6 gears, one gear was disabled to comply with the rules.
