    Sector3 Studios have revealed some highlights from the upcoming November update, it's a big one...

    The new patch looks likely to bring some of the biggest improvements and features to the simulation in recent months, with such interesting and much requested support for triple screen support, new 64bit launcher, three new GT3 cars, brand new physics and improvements to the current GT3 vehicles in the game and quite a bit more on top!

    It has been a while since Sector3 Studios pushed out a new update for RaceRoom Racing Experience, and despite a few little previews coming from the studio the general feeling amongst the community in recent weeks has been one of frustration as players continue to wait for the next set of updates to hit the simulation.

    It appears from todays preview information release that the Swedish developers are gunning for a rather tasty looking patch indeed, adding plenty of the stuff players have been patiently waiting for as well as a couple of little extras we've not been expecting...

    You can check out the details of the upcoming November patch released by Sector3 below:

    64bits
    After the patch you will be able to choose between a 64bits executable or the traditional 32bits version. Provided that your operating system is 64bits, selecting the 64bits executable will allow the game to use as much RAM as it needs from your system, instead of the limited access to 4GB of the 32bits version.

    Until now, the game was limited to use under 4GB of your available RAM, resulting in crashes when you attempted to load many cars on a big track like the Nürburgring Nordschleife.
    After the update this will no longer be an issue for 64bit users.

    NOTE: You need a 64-bit operating system and sufficient available RAM (4 GB+) to fully benefit from this update.


    Multiview Triple Screen Support
    As we already announced, we will release a first iteration of our improved Triple Screen Support,
    featuring Multiview rendering, bezel- & angle correction.

    Driver animations
    We have updated a fair amount of our cars to use the full 360 degree driver animation, which especially VR users will be glad to hear.

    A new Competition Concept: Race 2 Win
    Competitions played a huge role in RaceRoom since day one. From the Time Attacks on the leaderboards to today's full online championships endorsed by official Series and manufacturers such as the WTCC and Mercedes.

    Now we want to take it one step further, by allowing everyone to compete for actual prizes, 24/7.
    Drivers will be able to participate in selected competitions by paying a small amount of vRP's, and get the chance to win awesome prizes.

    Rules of R2W Competitions can vary, from time limited sessions to a limited number of laps available to set your laptime.

    The development of this concept is still in its early days, but we hope to expand it in the future, and to reward our best drivers with top prizes.

    GTR 3 Class Update
    We know we've kept you waiting for quite a while, but we promise it will pay off.
    In preparation for the new GT3 car releases, the entire GTR3 class has been updated in terms of physics, AI and BOP (Balance of performance).

    The word "update" might even be an understatement, as recently joined Sector3 Studios Physics developer Alex Hodgkinson pretty much reworked every single aspect of the cars physics.
    Thanks to some great insights and data we received from real GT3 teams and manufacturers, such as Callaway Competition, we were able to recreate the cars to an unprecedented degree of realism, especially in terms of suspension geometry, tyre modelling, weight distribution & aerodynamic aspects.

    The results are much better driveable cars, that follow the driver's input very precisely, also giving much better information in the FFB (force feedback) through the steering wheel.
    Many hours have been spent comparing real life footage and data to simulate the cars as close to reality as possible.

    On patch day you will be able to experience this in all available GT3 cars, as well as in some new additions that will become available ;)

    Porsche?
    We promised you 3 Porsche race cars in 2017, and we still stand by that promise. We will reveal what exactly we have in store for you after the November patch.

    This sounds like a fantastic update! I'm sure the move to 64bit will help with the crashes some people experience when racing online, and it'll be great to no longer see people whinging about triple-screen support in every single patch thread. ;) I can't wait to try out the new GT3 physics too. Bring it on S3! :thumbsup:

    Been waiting for Black Friday to buy the Premium pack but if the update releases before then (which I kinda expect), I'll probably instantly unleash the full power of my credit card instead as I don't think I'll have the will power to wait any longer :redface:

    There was some reference to VR updates as well in another post. Is there going to be a performance improvement or was that just reference to the hand animations from the driver?

    Good looking update though. Triple screen support is badly needed and an update to the GT3 class is a smart move.

    Really looking forward to this update and the new competition sounds interesting. If playing for prizes and you have to pay to join that will create some interesting scenarios. They will certainly have to figure out how to make it a little more even or those of us who could never reach the lap times of Aliens will not be too interested in playing. Sounds like they need a handicap system like in golf so that we can at least feel like we have a chance:D Getting my sandbags ready as we speak:ninja:

    Better be a ADAC GT Masters update, and it better have: Porsche 911 GT3 R, Corvette C7 GT3-R, Audi R8 LMS, Mercedes AMG GT3 and the BMW M6 GT3.

    My good boy points have been fairly earned...!!!
