Will we get to use Race Track Builder for making custom tracks and derby pits for Wreckfest?

I have PM Bugbear Dev Janne and ask Bugbear to take a look at Race Track Builder. :)

Just to let you all know, Flatout Joint doors are permently close now. :(

We had over a 7 year run at Flatout Joint ( 2006 ). A lot of modding got done and we did a community mod for both Flatout 1 and 2. :)

These community mods thankfully to Moddb are still being hosted here. Big thanks go out to Moddb for hosting our big mod files for free. :D

Look like the Flatout modding community will now set their eyes on modding Bugbear new derby racing game, Wreckfest. Already a little modding been going on with the pre-alpha since Build #6, Bugbear left the game files unpacked.

Bugbear has said they will support modding of Wreckfest but we will have to wait until after final version of Wreckfest get release to see what form modding support we be.

I doubt we will see much modding of Wreckfest this year, but next year ( 2016 ) if we get our hands on some modding tools, maybe a new modding community will form around Wreckfest.

Here links to a couple of modding threads over at Bugbear forum:

I take it you were trying to download this file:

Click to download FOJ_CommunityMod_Setup.exe if it doesn't start automatically or try another mirror.

I tried downloading file logged in and logged out and I was able to download exe file both times.

Are you logged in as an admin in your Windows? If not, your browser may be stopping you from downloading an exe file from the Internet. My Avast ask me if I really wanted to download this file and I had to tell it yes.

Also the installer only works on Community Mod parts 1-3. Will not unpack the rar files for parts 4 and part 5 or the other carpacks.

Would be best to get free version of WinRar so can unpack all the files in the download section.

If you have not heard yet, Bugbear has sent out emails Saturday to those that have [url=]pre-order the Next Car Game[/url], with a link to Steam key for NCG pre-alpha. The pre-alpha has the muscle car from Sneak Peek demo and also the small Euro car. There 1 derby pit, 1 dirt track and 1 tarmac track. Can select 12 car or 24 car race or derby.

Here a post from a Bugbear Dev:

Thanks guys, we're really happy to hear you're having such a great experience. To be honest, we didn't have too much time for testing to get the release out in time for the holidays, so we were a bit anxious about the quality of the build. Like I think I already stated elsewhere, there are quite a few issues that need to be fixed, but luckily they should not be too detrimental to the experience at this point.

We're also really happy that the first build is finally out because it means that we have pretty much nailed all the boring (to any of our coders reading this, sorry!) stuff and can finally concentrate on building the game around the base we now have. That means more tracks with more content, more cars, proper upgrading, better driving dynamics, and so on, and of course a lot of fine-tuning to everything that we already have.

Of course you guys will be first ones to enjoy all the improvements first-hand with our future Early Access releases.

Here an update:

This got posted Sunday over at Bugbear forum:

24 cars on track - GREAT! And a quick question

"Janne wrote:
Well, more cars was one thing that you guys were asking, wasn't it? :D

Unless something major comes up, we will keep the 24 cars for the full game at least for offline play. We have been already testing track races and derbies with the full grid of 24 cars, and thanks to our efficient tech, the performance hit is surprisingly minor. The chief problem is that, as you can imagine, the tracks get extremely crowded since most of them have been designed for a lesser amount of cars, so the going gets quickly very rough. But of course that's something that can be worked around, so it's not really going to pose a problem.

Online is something that we cannot confirm yet.


Here a good video of guy enjoying the sneak peek video:

Big news - 24 car derbys coming to NCG?

After having some fun with Bugbear sneak peek demo release Friday, had to go catchup on my Bugbear forum reading. A lot of new faces and posts thanks to demo.

I found this post and had to ask:

**Will we get 24 car derbys offline?**

Playable technology sneak peek available now!:

As for the sneak peek, great to hear it seems to be running fine for most of you. We're pretty proud how cost-efficient our engine is even with a full grid on 24 cars, every single one having the same advance damage physics. That has always been one of our goals because we really want to have a LOT of action and keep the game playable even without a super computer.


So can Bugbear answer the BIG $24 question or is it to soon to ask?

**Will we get 24 car derbys offline?**

I know it not going happen online, but demo does show players with good PC hardware can handle 24 car derbys offline. And if have slider, player can see how many cars his computer can handle. This maybe would be a problem for career mode, put I think we would be OK if could do it just in quick derby mode.

Here Bugbear response to my question:

Here it is, Bugbear has release video of some ingame racing on a dirt track. :)

Note: This is pre-alpha build of Next Car Game.

Quote:Team Bugbear -
This is the moment you’ve all been waiting for: we’re finally ready to show you some proper racing action on a dirt track! Here we are testing with a powerful rear-wheel drive car how our handling works on gravel, and we’re glad to let you know that it feels SUPERB!

Thanks to our great physics, you really get the full white-knuckle racing experience with Next Car Game, if that’s what you prefer. On the other hand, if you’re a budding race car driver, you can still enjoy the game (and remain competitive!) by enabling a selection of driving aids.

Please note that the game is still very much work-in-progress, and what you see is not representative of the final quality. For example the track has not been properly decorated yet, and there’s a lot of additional polish that’s going to be done on it. Also, the player car damage has been disabled for the demonstration purposes.

Check out the video on our Kickstarter page and let us know what you think!

As you know, we still have a plenty of distance to cover if we’re going to succeed with our Kickstarter campaign, but you can help us meet our goal. Now it’s time for the racing game fans to unite and show us that you want a game like Next Car Game! Our team is having great fun playing the game, and we feel that no other game can match the amazing racing experience offered by Next Car Game. We can’t wait to share it with you!

Go Purple!

We're not sure yet how we're going to structure the Steam Early Access. Likely it's a one size fits all deal (low price and just the game); if you want the good stuff, you need to pre-order from us. We really prefer pre-orders from us as that leaves us with considerably more of the money.

Pre-orders from us do come with Steam keys now that we're through Greenlight (once we have a Steam build available, naturally).

Had a thought today, so started a new thread over at Codemasters GRID 2 forum:

New idea about derby racing and GRID 2.

I just had a thought after reading some posts about derby racing not being in GRID 2 over at GRID facebook page and got an idea.

Hmm, since online will follow it own path, Codemasters how about giving us Derby racing just online? Since it don't seem to fit in with the offline career mode.

I'm thinking Codies drop derby racing because they did not think it would fit in with the world series racing theme for offline mode. But online, would it be a problem to have some derby racing??

And if can not get derby racing online into GRID 2 before release in May, could Codemasters please release a derby racing DLC with some figure 8 tracks and a few cars. The UK has banger race, base DLC on that. I'm sure there be a lot of players willing to buy this DLC!!

What your stats say on how many players derby race online with GRID 1? Over 50% do some derby racing?


You Flatout fans that like GRID 1 derby racing online and ya like my idea, go post over at GRID 2 forum. :)

It sad to report that the release of Flatout 3 went badly, since FO3 was release as a beta thanks to Strategy First and the online is still broken after 6 patches. Heddly did a good post to sum things up:

Since the launching of the FO3 "Titanic" we have been trying to keep it afloat but the patches for the hull have not arrived in time to prevent the sinking. Team6 did their best to save the ship but currently is grounded off the coast of Strategy First.

A spokesman for the Strategy First authority has not returned calls for assistance. SOS (· · · — — — · · ·) LOL
