    Introducing OZV8 modding project for GSC Extreme

    The team at simracingoz.com (Sim Racing Australia) would like to officially announce their fictional take on the 2015 Australian ‘Supercars’ touring car series with their new, scratch built mod that will be coming to the Stock Car Extreme title free of charge to all very soon!

    This work in progress mod is called ‘OZV8’ and it represents a first known attempt to complete a mod using partial funding from a simple crowd funding joint venture where SRA seeks to engage the wider sim racing communities support to assist them finish the mod to the exacting, high standards they have set.

    SRA have a few exciting plans in place the development of this mod and would they would like to share them with you:

    1. The OZV8 mod will proudly feature Studio quality physics and sounds as developed by Reiza Studios for the OZV8 mod under full approval. This will ensure this mod is going to be the most realistic driving representation of any V8SC mod you have ever seen!

    2. Furthermore, SRA are contracting all developmental aspects of this mod out too skilled professional’s to ensure only the highest quality of workmanship is achieved.

    And lastly, the team at SRA seek to engage you, the wider sim racing community too support them with assisting them with the completion of the mod via a simple crowd funding program that offers various bonuses and investor incentives for you to get involved with the mod on the “ground floor”.

    Incentives such as custom liveries included in the mod for businesses (Pagnian Imports, SRH or the DSD styles of companies for example), or on a personal level having the crowd funding supporters names feature on the race car side windows of the cars and so on.

    Some of these options are limited to ensure exclusivity so you would need to be fast!

    Despite having a fictional name and fictional paint jobs (paint templates will be released later), all five cars will be accurate renditions of the Supercars 2015 manufacturer body styles, and, the OZV8 mod will also include the current range of GEN2 aero kits to match.

    Owners of Stock Car Extreme (and other platforms) are now formally invited to get behind this ambitious project by visiting the projects crowd funding page located at <mod edit: goal reached> and make a pledge.

    Hi Slade, The studio mentioned in the press release are very kindly providing us with the services we have mentioned.
    Just the fact alone that we have stated this in the "Official" GSC thread on RD should bear enough weight.

    So the physics and sounds will actually be produced and sold to you by Reiza as a software product, right ?
    In any case, great stuff and good luck with the project. :thumbsup:

    The Physics are kindly being supplied to us by Reiza under an approved agreement.

    We advise in keeping with the spirit of aftermarket mods we are releasing the mod to the community completely for FREE.

    Yes!!

    In less than 24hrs we have reached 100% funding. We would like to impress upon everyone that just because we have reached the funding target, the request and imputus to keep going is still there.

    The more we can raise, teh better the quality we can produce.

    We are also looking at a Aussie track add on that will be heavily upgraded on all relevant aspects regarding accuracy and visual qualities.

    All 100% FREE
    :)

    Let´s clarify this: SRA is licensing our physics & sounds for their private project. We do provide such services. We are doing because we have a car in development for future release that will use the same physics and sounds.

    They intend to turn this into a public mod following a crowd funding campaign, However we are not involved in this project beyond the service they have required from us. Anyone moved to back them should do so in the strength of their project as a whole.
