    [ANSWERED] What is WMD?

    I don't understand what WMD is and how it relates to pCARS. DID they pay SMS to develop the game. What are toolpacks?

    Thank you

    I try to explain it short:

    WMD means World of Mass Development.

    Normally you have a Publisher that does Pays the Development Team for creating a Game.
    They decide how the Game has to look and defines the Features together with the Dev Team.

    Here at WMD the Gamers do funding the Game, and decide together with the Dev Team how the Game should be.
    Also the Gamers do testing the Game and give Feedback.

    So you can assure that the Game will be like it was designed from the Gamers itself.

    It has many Pro's for both Teams the Gamers and the Development Team...

    The Toolspacks was different Options how you could participate at this Development Process...

    Hi,

    WMD or World Mass Development is the forum for the original backers of the game (people like me, with the yellow name badge) and the staff of SMS.

    Toolpacks relate to the level of access each member had during the development stage of the game:

    Junior (Update once a month)
    Team Memeber ( Once a week)
    Full manager, not sure what if that was it was called (Once every few days)
    Senior Manager (Every day)
    PC Specs
    CPU: Intel core i7-4771, 3.5 GHz (haswell bridge) | Motherboard: Asus Z87-K | OS: Windows 10 Home 64*bit April update | Graphics card: Palit NVidia GTX 1070TI | Wheel & Shifter: Thurstmaster T500 RS with Fanatec CSL LC's and TH8A Shifter | RAM: 16GB DDR3 | I.S.P: Virgin Media VIVID 200 DRIVE: 1TB SSD

    Wmd is the world of mass development portal. The idea was to have a game financed by gamers, developed with gamers. Collect feedback from a large community, give them the possibility to share their opinion on some main aspects of the game.
    Also it was kinda great for bug finding, because thousands of eyes see more than a few dozens.

    Thank you for the explanation. What were the different toolpacks like? I did not know about the game until last year, and did not get in on WMD in time. Can I still provide feedback?

    BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment is listed on the Steam store page. I thought they published the game and SMS developed it. So WMD is part of SMS?

    That depended on what toolpack they were.
