    Kunos Simulazioni have released a new version of their popular PC simulator Assetto Corsa. This bi-weekly update brings the much awaited modding tools the sim racing community.


    The new build brings several fixes and finally welcomes the modding community thanks to the inclusion of the Assetto Corsa SDK dedicated to 3rd party productions for tracks. Initially scheduled to be included in Assetto Corsa 1.0, the editor has been released in advance, in order to assist all those modders who are already working to their home-made tracks.

    The Assetto Corsa SDK is available for download in the Steam Library > Tools \ Tab, and includes a free sample track for training and testing. If you haven't seen it already, check out the earlier posted SDK video tutorial.

    Assetto Corsa now on sale at the RaceDepartment Store

    Epic!, now finally we can get some quality modded content. There's a few good bits out there but there's a lot of rough stuff too.

    Mid pack attack!

    I don't think that the cars portion of the mod kit has been released yet. Just the track portion.

    Haven't given it a shot so don't know. I hope we can do track animations now.

  6. Cars cannot be done with THIS editor, unfortunately.
    In fact you cannot actually make a track with this either.
    What this editor is for, is assigning materials, and certain settings to tracks you import from other 3d apps.

    You still have to make your track in 3dsMax/ blender/ c4d/ lightwave.. Then export as FBX. Then you load the editor and essentially write the Json file just by clicking in a few boxes rather than by hand. i think you can also add your start points and time gates and things...but im not 100% sure on that .
    Then when you have all that ready you can tell the editor to save as KN5 (assetto format)
     
  7. This will be a great tool thanks KUNOS

  9. i'm exporting fbx track from blender, but when i load the track in the editor, i can't see it properly ...parts are invisible and some just float around.

    never mind, I solved it.

    Well, if it comes with a training and testing track then I might actually give track building a go! :)
