    Hello, I thought I'd try to make a reference thread for content that we know or believe to be being worked on from various interviews, teasers and the like. I'll try to keep it up-to-date as items get released and announced in future.

    It's not intended to be a thread for wish lists, but we'll see how it goes. Hopefully it gives a bit of an insight into how much work the programmers, modellers, texture artists, sound guys and physics specialists (and licensors!) are putting into content behind the scenes.

    Features:
    - Multi-class racing
    - AI selector
    - Improved replay camera controls
    - Manual pit stops
    - Weight penalties

    Cars (items in italic are likely mothballed):
    - Audi R8 LMS [2016] (GT3)
    - BMW M235i Racing (VLN)
    - Chevrolet Corvette C7R (TUSC)
    - Ford Falcon (V8 Supercars)
    - KTM X-Bow GT4 (GT4)
    - Mercedes-AMG GT3 (GT3)
    - Nissan GT-R GT1 (FIA GT)
    - Nissan R90CK (WSC)
    - Volvo S60 (V8 Supercars)
    - Formula Raceroom X1 (Fantasy)
    - Formula Raceroom 1 'Classic' (Fantasy)
    - Formula Raceroom US (Fantasy)

    Tracks:
    - ???

    Packs/Experiences:
    - GT Masters 2016

    Class Updates:
    - Touring Classics / DTM '92
    - GTX (class split)

    If you notice anything missing, please let me know in the thread.

    There are some things I haven't included because I'm not 100% sure. For example, I've heard comments about a couple of Aston Martins, but I don't know the source (Simbin Insider blogs no longer available!). Maybe I'll add a 'rumoured' list for items such as these and the Ginetta that was in an old 'license teaser'.

    All credit to Sector 3 for what is already in game and the large list of items that await us.

    Looks like the WTCC 2014 won't be an experience, only a pack.

    V8 supercars!! <:eek:) no Mercedes, Nissan or holden? Would be a real shame not to have them all. I do appreciate it's hard to get the licenses for some.

    The Ford and Volvo are name checked about 25 minutes into this interview, along with the R18 and C7R.

    Interview with Jay Ekkel of Simbin:

    Actually, watching that video back, it's stunning how far the game has come in such a short space of time. That interview was only a few months ago, yet was before the WTCC and GTM content, as well as single-player and multiplayer races.

    Potentially, yes - makes no difference to me either way but hopefully we'll get some clarification on that one in coming weeks.

    I have also some wishes for the future.

    - make the setups saveable
    - make the onlineracing more like in Race07 - staying on Server with trackrotation, Chat, timescreen and racemonitor, also with some time between the sessions - I miss this very much
    - If the First finish the race we need more time to end the race for the other Drivers to end his race. We Need no 5 minutes but minimum a bit more as the laptime of the track.
    - free cams in pitlane
    - no autocontrol in pitlane

    These are my wishes so far. More come soon. But this is enough at the Moment. ;-)

    Good point about the hillclimb pack, I've updated the list with the known upcoming liveries from the last dev stream, including most of the liveries that I expect to be included.

    By the way, has someone got a source for a Silverstone confirmation? If not, I'll shift that one onto an upcoming 'teased' or 'rumoured' list.

    Alex is saying he will be working on Silverstone in the end of this vid, but no dates..


    Off topic:
    Would love to see some more great UK race tracks such as Cadwell Park, Oulton Park and Donington!! :)

    Cadwell is mostly a bike track these days. It's too narrow for the BTCC. Very interesting circuit though.

    Donington would be awesome.

    Yes, it's a bit narrow.
    But I just love these kinds of tracks, with much elevation, bumps and twitchy turns!! Awesome! :D

    Here is a Porsche race from Cadwell:

    Interesting, although I'm expecting that one to be bug fixes more than anything. Will be back on top of this thread following the dev stream (presumably next week).
