WCP series at the top for Christmas !

Hi everyone,

We haven’t released some new content for rFactor since a long time but today I’m proud to announce you that we’re heading to many projects that will surely interest you.

Firstly, I wanted to give some news about the trackpack, all tracks are done, we’ve entered in a new phase: enhancing the tracks with a lot of new features (dynamic sky with 3D clouds, realistic day night transition, vibrating kerbs, roadshaders, better AI experience, minor issues fixed, and more). Already Melboune, Sakhir, Shanghai and Sepang have been updated to 2.0 version. I will update the download links, the article and the threads on wcp-series.com as soon as possible.

Then, the F1 2014 WCP V3.0 project. We’re working hard on it and my goals are: adding special liveries, special helmets, GP upgrades, enhancing carshaders, include the Single Player version, and more… Let’s talk about the SP mod, it’s done, you’ll be able to race a full season with the car of your choice, with brand new physics, single for each car. The AI experience is brand new, and believe me, these are hours and hours of work behind all of this from KimoKama and Alain Fry.

About the Historic Project, it’s not dead, maybe it’s our most active project, we have a lot of cars incoming into rFactor: Renault RS01, McLaren MP4-5, Benetton B195, … More information about this soon.

Also, Haunetal, a friend of WCP, is making a Formula E model from scratch and we granted his permission to use the car model to make a mod around it, that means WCP would bring HD skins, realistic physics, sounds and all a top mod needs ;)

To finish, many of us are asking for the F1 2011 WCP 2.1a mod… I want to make a V3.0 version of this mod with many features, would you like it? Feel free to react to this on the comments here or on Facebook, our projects are based on your recommandations !

Have a nice day,

Thomas

F1 2014 WCP – Mid-Season – How is the progress?

Hi guys,

It’s time for some summary. We already have 5 car models ingame (v0.45) and still a lot of work to do. I have plans for the others car models, and some of them are already ingame into my own rFactor. The next cars should be the Caterham and the Ferrari coming along together in a v0.5 beta.

About the mod itself

The 8th gear is a major issue into this mod but it should not be a problem as we’re in touch with RFE guys, they didn’t give up, and we should have a taste of the upcoming version of the RFE plugin soon.

Alain is working hard on the physics, thanks to your feedback, we’re doing a nice job to get closer to reality and to what people wants. Keep giving your feedback on the forum it’s very important !

About new cars

 

The Ferrari model has a little issue we’re fixing with raff19 and I may ask Adam for a brand new scratch skin for it.

The Caterham just needs to be converted and that will be done soon, the model looks ok and it looks like it doesn’t need any fix.

The Force India is also ready (and ingame) but the nosecone must be modeled again from scratch because it’s not looking realistic yet.

The ToroRosso model is ingame, but I’m not happy with it as it lacks of faces where it should look all smooth, I’ll see if I can fix it or if I’d need brand new scratch model by raff19.

I have no real plan yet that I can communicate about the Marussia and the Sauber but I will tell you guys very soon when I’ll have.

About actual cars

The Mercedes needs the mirrors to be remapped and then the model should be fine. Adam is painting the driver suits (I’ll have a story about it later for you guys). Still need the 2014 Steering Wheel (Nico/Lewis) version.

I’m satisfied of the RedBull, it’s looking pretty good and realistic ingame, it just needs the 2014 Steering Wheel.

About the McLaren, I have to add the cameras on the sides of the camera then the model will be ok. I also lack of special liveries, but they should come soon in an upcoming beta (v0.5 or v0.6).

The Lotus looks pretty good to me, maybe I’ll have to fix an issue with Grosjean’s skin as the car appears black for some people. It still needs the 2014 steering wheel.

I’m really happy with the Williams model even if some people are asking for some shape fixes, it can’t be done, we only have one modeler who’s very busy and there are priorities ! We added Susie Wolff car into the v0.45. A non-alcohol livery is needed though.

About the tracks

Our latest released track is Silverstone. Don’t worry, the others are coming, we’re just slower as our tracks maker, Marek Adamus, has a summer job so he can only work at week ends from now on.

Important message for you guys

If it’s not already done, please, register at www.wcp-series.com/league/; you guys will have exlusive downloads, news, previews and much more… I will organize a big race when the mod will be done. (news about it soon)

Please, we’re closing the 1000th members, I guess it’s for the mod, be active as a beta tester, give us you’re feedback, just download and close won’t help the mod to go forward.

Remember that the content is private, if you see anyone leeching or providing another download, report to us, so we will either sue or taking down stuff directly with the host provider.

I go on holidays for the whole week, but don’t worry, I’ve given the tasks so when I’m back I will upload a new beta with new car(s) and new stuff/fixes… !!

About the release date, if we all push hard, we should get all cars (not final version though) by the end of summer !
