^^^ Spintires is definitely a must play off road simulator with its ultra realistic physics and the tire pressure simulation is just so cool

But the game gets boring once you complete the objectives which hardly takes 10 game hours.

Have you tried it in multiplayer mode? If not then do try out, that is where it really shines and bring much more fun. Anyways, I have been playing SpinTires since the tech-demo releases, still not got bored of it. Just keep searching for the downloads section of their forum website and keep trying out new mods, vehicles maps (maps are still to come for the full version) etc

Great job done right there. Do let me know when you install the sim softwares, we will setup a multiplayer race.

Major fun part is multiplayer capability where 4 other players can join and start offroading in heavy Russian trucks. One guy sucks and others help with available tools like motored winch etc. Though its equally fun in the single player as well.

Its a very realistic off roading simulator.
I am addicted to it



Not sure if offroading simulator is also eligible in this thread.
Spintires is a nice game, but sad it does not support wheels at all.. Playing with mouse and keyboard isnt very fun.


I am currently using Assetto Corsa, LFS and have downloaded GameStockCar as well, will install its new update which gets the 2014 f1 cars and Formula VEE cars.. Going to be fun..

Anyone else who is into sim racing?

Hello guys!
I`m so glad that there are active sim racers in team-bhp.
I own a G27 (brought it brand new 2 years back) and i recently got a Playseat revolution gaming chair.
The feel is awesome. It is a must have thing with the steering wheel. At the moment I play Codemasters Formula1 on PS3 as am a big fan of all their titles, and ocasionally plays Gran Turismo.
Been thinking of setting up a good gaming PC and jump to assetto-corsa or iRacing.
anyway, Keep updating guys.
Happy Gaming

Hey Mudit! Glad that you use LFS too! I am using LFS since 2008. I learned 80% driving on it and I am proud of that. Are you using the full version or demo version? My fastest time on Blackwood with XFG GTI is 1:34:75. Online races are fun. Shows your real driving skills. Haha. Here are a couple of mods I had managed. Had even made a Saudi Drift setup. Link attached for full Saudi Drift video. There are more LFS vids too on my channel. Not lucky enough to use a G25/G27. All I use is a simple device called mouse. Enjoy

I currently use demo and mostly race on MRc Servers.. FBM @ Blackwood. Did a PB last week (1.13.41). I will take a look at the videos, always great to see fellow racers.

Online races are the real deal, it gets really intense. We usually do 3 laps sprint races. Let me know if you are active there, would love to have a little on track battle

Cheers!

Currently I am on a long break due to poor Internet. Will let you know when I come back. 1:13 is a great run. I wish that this game only had better car sounds. They are too soft. There is now some update too. Check their website. Is the VW Scirocco officially available for download?

Now it supports steering wheels (including clutch) and they are working hard to keep improving the user experience. Here are changelogs since the game has been released: http://www.oovee.co.uk/forum/topic/1...stable-update/

Default Re: Buying, Owning, Driving and Maintaining a car in North America

Meanwhile something which i've been doing recently with the guys from the s2000 Club..

We race on Wednesday nights on PS3, with grand tourismo 6. We have themed races every week. So you could pick a car based on your preferences and then limit to the power or power to weight ratio.Some races need stock cars, Some uses suspension and gearbox tuning. All in all It is good fun.

Anyway moving on to pics

1, Pic one is from a 70's Jap car spec race. I was using a Nissan fairlady
2, Was American Muscle race - Me in the Blue ZR1
3, AWD challenge at the Nurbruninging - power limited. I'm in the Evo
4, American Muscle again
5, BMW challenge
