  2. What's the difference between one Mercedes SLS AMG GT3 and the other one except the livery? I already own one and the other one is 329 VRP.

  3. there was an old one?? i didnt know if so, i just now picked it up.

    i think there are 2 seperate gt3 categories now, adac gt & gtr3. i assume adac have the latest physics & gtr3 are waiting to be updated.

  4. Has Simbin/Sector 3 Studios said anything about PitStops, Formation lap, Rain and stuff like that for the future?

    We just released the SLS. Maybe you're mixing it with the SLR in German Nationals class?
     
  6. There are two SLS AMG GT3, that's why I don't know the difference other than the livery. I don't want to buy one for 329 VRP only to find out it might have been a mistake in this update.

  7. Store page shows both as SLS models. No SLR. Exactly the same specs other than livery.

    What do you mean old though? We just released them for the first time with this patch.

    One is the ADAC GT Masters 2013 Mercedes SLS

    The other one is Mercedes SLS in GTR 3 Class.

    They are different cars in different classes. Same but with some differences based on real life versions.

    If you own one of them however, you should get a linked discount on the other one. It should cost you 79 VRPs.

  11. I just realized that both cars were released with this update and I guess when I purchased the ADAC pack it gave me one of them so I assumed I owned it already before today's update. I didn't realize there were two version of the same car. That's my fault, sorry for the confusion however the description for the cars is exactly the same on the store page. And its not showing me a discount for one of them even though I own the other one.

  12. I've got the exact same "problem" as Mike/Blkout, I just realized that both cars got released with this patch, so that's fine, but I'm not getting a discount on the GT3 version for owning the ADAC version.
     
    • Agree Agree x 1
  13. Have all the tracks been visually updated as well? Bathurst and Laguna Seca look different and a lot better.

    FFB is great. It's GTR2-like again. Yayyyy.
    Sounds, graphics and now feel all spot on.
    Well done Sector3.

    You may now all sit back with a big ****ing smug grin. :D

  14. Having a hard time telling if the FFB/Physics is better, but I'll put that down to the FFB engine being borked on my wheel :p
    Hopefully getting my new one tomorrow!

    That explains why you bumped in to me

  16. Will i get additional discount on the ADAC pack if i make a single purchase of any of the ADAC cars in the store beforehand ?
     
  17. Congratulations guys, well done on the first big release as a new studio; now go and get a good night's sleep because we're all eager for more with these new changes!

    As for me, I stated my objections in the other thread, namely 1) no races in single player, 2) no integration of packs (DTM tracks) and 3) no ability to create multi-class/custom grids.

    With two of those overcome, I have just invested in 5000VrP and purchased the new packs. Very much looking forward to trying out the new content and finally being able to purchase some of the other items I haven't bought before now (especially the GT cars). I hope there are some more sales coming up as there is a lot of the content I would like to purchase once it is available at a lower price and my remaining VrP will stay untouched until the next sale.

    Furthermore, really looking forward to any more new content in the pipeline and playing this new (to me) game online at last! I hope once the first post-launch stages are out of the way we can hear more about the direction and future plans of Sector3.

    Thanks, well done and goodnight.

  18. Hello, when will Norisring and Nurburgring be updated with new shaders, ffb etc.?
    Will we get in near future a GT Masters 2014 pack with the Slovakiaring and Sachsenring?

    But at all a fantastic update today, I enjoy this game so much.
    So excited for the DTM 2014 :)

    Hi guys,

    I have now confirmed that there is indeed an issue with the linked discount that should apply to the overlapping content, such as the Mercedes SLS that was mentioned here.

    We will fix this tomorrow first thing in the morning so that the linked discounts apply correctly when purchasing a pack.

    In the meantime please wait so you don't end up paying full price.
