Hi everyone, been a long time since i last posted. The main reason for this was the lack of any major news I could post for you guys to read, but now Iím able to do so and you guys will just go nuts for sure.
Letís begin with the best one so far, the FSA issues are now solved!
Thatís right folks, they allowed SMS to keep on going with the World of Mass Development but with some small changes to the system for the future Projects in order to fulfill the regulations imposed by the FSA. These changes will be known in the upcoming weeks when another announcement will be made and the announcement will beÖ.
Project CARS goes to NEXT-GEN Consoles!SMS is now an official developer for Playstation 4 and probably also to Durango (Xbox720) once it comes out, the development will be a side Project and will be known in the next weeks how you can participate in it.
As if this wasnít enough already more great news were shared with us by the Slightly Mad Team, Mercedes is now officially licensed and will include the following babies!

A major update in the physics department was also announced, coming this week with a improvement tread model called FlashTread will bring the following features:
And much, much more :)
* "grip" broken out into deformation, adhesive, viscous, tack, and tear models
* flash effect (temperature variance through the contact patch at asperity level)
* curing (race tires are not typically delivered fully cured)
* water, including hydroplaning (which happens organically)
* loose material model (for gravel, sand, dirt, etc)
* tread wear (and flat spots do just fall out)
Itís still not over guys!
The developers also announced a new Formula to compete in Project CARS, the Formula C. After last week release of the Formula Gulf 1000 they mentioned that there would be another formula to compete with and this week they shown us the first prototype of the new car to participate which looks amazing but due to its early WIP state Iím not able to show it Öyet.
Thereís also a new sun flare tech introduced recently that is able to produce some of the most amazing flares we have seen so far in a game, still in a early state they will change and adapt to the weather conditions and time of the day giving you a lot of variety in terms of visuals, they just look amazing and you can see that by yourselves in the 2 images below taken by our community members Kmax1 and Kelnor34.
We also celebrated recently 1000 members in our Steam Group, all the important news and events are posted there in a regular basis so if you want to know everything first hand be sure to check it out, its open for everyone to join and you can also talk with us in the Group Chat.
Thatís all for now, hope you all enjoyed these great news and see you soon!
