Playsport games have revealed a free update to the epic Motorsport Manager game will be deployed on December 15th - bringing a new 2D race option with the aim of reducing the processing power required to run the simulation and open up opportunity for those with less powerful machines to enjoy the title. Surprisingly graphics intensive for a management sim, Motorsport Manager has sadly alienated many potential fans with the relatively steep machine requirements up to this point. Playsport have worked to address this issue with the new update, adding a new 2D mode which lets players switch instantly between the 2D and 3D visual of the race. The plan is for the 2D mode to "enable lower spec laptops and desktops to run the game by changing the full 3D race engine for a less graphically intensive overhead view". This is a pleasing development from the studio and shows a very encouraging commitment to the needs of the games potential audience. Also due to be released as part of the December 15th update are a number of bug fixes most requested by the Motorsport Manager community, including a blue flag fix and improved AI pit strategies. Furthermore, Playsport have confirmed they are working towards launching Steam Workshop support early in 2017, possibly as soon as February next year. 15/12/2016 Patch Notes: Fixed an issue where some teams would pick too many risky parts Fixed an issue where too many cars would run out of fuel before the end of a race Improved AI pit strategies Fixed an issue where a significant number of cars would break down near the end of the race Blue flags no longer slow cars down but they do move out of the way Fix to database importing on Linux machines without en-US locale installed Updated minimum spec: Windows OS: Microsoft Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit) Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo P8700 @ 2.5 GHz Memory: 4 GB RAM Graphics: nVIDIA GT 335M, 512MB or AMD Radeon HD 4670, 512MB or Intel HD 4000 series DirectX: Version 10.1 Hard Drive: 16 GB available space Mac OS X OS: Mac OSX 10.10 Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo P8700 @ 2.5 GHz Memory: 4 GB RAM Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 9400M or AMD Radeon HD 4670, 512MB or Intel HD 4000 series Hard Drive: 16 GB available space Linux OS: Ubuntu 14.04+, SteamOS Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo P8700 @ 2.5 GHz Memory: 4 GB RAM Graphics: nVIDIA GT 335M, 512MB or AMD Radeon HD 4670, 512MB or Intel HD 4000 series Storage: 16 GB available space Motorsport Manager is available for Windows PC, Mac and Linux right now.
