codename "Jakob"

Discussion in 'RACE 07 - Official WTCC Game' started by Douglas Lundberg, Apr 6, 2009.

  1. http://simbin.se/

    look under game titles then under development

    codename "jakob" :shock:

    i wonder what this will be. another expansion......
     
  2. Just went on now. It was there, i clicked on Race on. Checked again and it was gone. mmmmm, strange
     
  3. its still there
     
  4. Maybe it's going to be their next game, introducing the Lizard engine. Or if it's a new expansion I'm still happy. Just keep those really awesome content coming!:)
     
  5. Wish it would be a project to ramp up their support for existing products. I've been a loyal customer for years, but doubt I'll waste more time and money on Simbin products until they change their ways. The current state of GTR Evolution is a shame no less. The latest patch made it even worse, and it's been nothing but silence from Simbin and Steam/Valve since that patch.
     
  6. They're working on a new patch.
     
  7. Race ON, while adding new content will also fix existing problems in the series. I'm wondering if jakob will feature the 2009 WTCC season? Or a bit too early for that?
     
  8. god has categorically intervened to prevent them releasing one more sodding touring car for the rest of the shelf life of the engine...

    Wow, cool!

    Im guessing WTCC09 :(

    Hopefully its the classes that go with the WTCC like FiAt500 Cup, Cupra Cup etc

    If its something like BTCC, JTCC, USTCC, ATCC or anything like that I will cry :p
     
  10. gtr3 I hope.
     
  11. I just want some damn British circuits!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    We are one of their biggest markets - how hard can it be?
     
  12. Stay cool!!! :poke:
    I would love some more British circuits too, but mostly as i suck at all the non british tracks.

    Do wish simbin would stop with the codename crap and just tell us what they developing! IT DRIVES ME CRAZY :cat:
     
  13. and when they do, do british tracks like Brands Indy then they should at least try and get it right.
     
  14. Yep, Brands Paddock Bend is completely wrong on GTR Evo.

    I can but dream of a Mini Enduro on Knockhill or Snetterton... :sniffle:
     
  15. I think we are getting a new updated brands hatch with the "Race On" expansion, as well as updates to many other tracks. I'm sure they'll just put them in alongside as "Brands Hatch '08" and so on.

    As for this new project, since Simbin has stated they want to make a multiplatform title as the next big thing, yet this "Jakob" project is PC only, I would say it's almost definitely yet another Race 07 expansion. I much like the expansions though so no complaining for me.

    My biggest wish is that they could somehow make a hardcore engine update and some more material as their next major title. I'd hate to lose out on all the great content we have already. Just rehaul and update the cars, tracks, renderer, sound engine, physics engine etc, keep all the great content.
     
  16. I personally hope it's GTR3, WTCC09, a BTCC expansion, or maybe, unlikely, a GP2 game. (Very unlikely though).
     
  17. Bring on a SuperTouringCar game! :D
     
  18. a super touring car sim would be great, im surprised no one has ever done a proper one

    I think its Formula 1's ....hahaha

    No I just saw the Jakob news on VirtualR and Simbin.se.
    Did a quick google for 'jakob car', and surprisingly found a result which might give a clue.

    Info on Volvocars.com:
    BACKGROUND
    Volvo Car Corporation (VCC) is proud of its history and we are looking after one of the industry's strongest brands - Volvo. Volvo was founded in Gothenburg, Sweden, by Gustaf Larson and Assar Gabrielsson. The first car left the factory on 14 April, 1927, it was called ÖV4 (Jakob).

    I think this Jakob thing is maybe some classic Volvo's? Or Volvo Heritage.
    If this is true, I don't think it will be based on Lizard but yet again another RACE 07On addon. :giggle:

    [Edit]
    Found a picture of the Jakob hotrod. That would be nice to have :)
