Project CARS: To Eifelwald We Go!
Build 249 introduced the new Eifelwald track which, incidentally, is quite similar to another extremely well-known track located in the German Eifel region. It’s still looking very basic and doesn’t even have trees, marshals etc. near the track – then again, the track itself (aka the tarmac, grass etc.) is looking good so far.
Also, the game will now update itself through a launcher system, quite similar to games like Diablo 3, and thus requires a full re-installation of the game. Slightly Mad Studios advised every player to fully uninstall the game and, if necessary, delete the game folders from your hard disk. Keep in mind that backups of installed custom skins might be a good idea! More information about the launcher can be found here.
Also: here they are, the full patch notes for build 249 – quite a few changes and adjustments. You can find them here on the official pCARS website.
