    Sector3 Studios have recently started releasing images of upcoming enhancements to RaceRoom Racing Experience in the form of the much needed and highly requested option to save car setups in game.

    Curiously missing since the RaceRoom beta first hit the digital shelves back in 2012, saving and loading of car setups is very high on many people's list of 'must have' features in any modern racing title and now the compact Swedish team will be bringing this function - alongside other as yet unannounced features - in the upcoming R3E patch due to hit the game... "soon".

    With additional features and updates promised in the upcoming patch, Sector3 had the following to say:

    "Our programmers are busy as ever preparing game feature and function improvements for the coming game updates. Right now the focus is on ForceFeedback, car setup functionality, Fuel use and a brand new updated compact Head-Up-Display implementation"

    With impressive new content in the form of the Audi Sport TT Cup car, NSU Prinz TTS, Formula RaceRoom 2 alongside previews of the upcoming Formula RaceRoom Junior and Bentley Continental GT3 fans of the title will be pleased to see some new features and functionality on the horizon.

    RaceRoom Racing Experience has a long way to go before it can match some of its more developed rivals for in-game features and functionality, but this is another solid step in the right direction for a game that has shown good improvement in the last 18 months. Of course questions are raised as to why such a fundamental feature hadn't been implemented sooner, but better late than never.

    With the planned Force Feedback changes, recently implemented physics updates to some vehicles in-game and of course the upcoming release of the legendary Nordschleife in all it's laser-scanned glory, 2016 is shaping up to be a big year for this sim.

    Don't forget to take a look at the RaceRoom Racing Experience forum and Racing Club right here on RaceDepartment.

    At long last some much needed new and important functionality is coming to R3E! Are you excited about the ability to save setups in game? Will you be sharing yours in the RaceRoom forum here at RD? Let us know in the comments section below!

    I admire the effort and the extent you went to in producing this article, Paul. So I won't spoil it by expressing my real thoughts towards R3E and it's development.

    Your efforts are appreciated, Paul. :thumbsup:

  4. If sim racing keeps going on like this in 2020 a news will look like this:
    "X company added buttons customization to Y game" :sick:

    R3E has set a record for me: this is by no doubt the longest "beta" (read alpha) game i have ever had in my gaming life. I think R3E just needs more....content:rolleyes:

    More content is needed definitely. It's needed to play the spend vRP mini-game.

    They should change the name for R3EB...
    By the way, almost the same images were posted almost 6 months ago ...

    Nice article Paul.:thumbsup: Always good news when features are being added to any game, and yes hopefully this will be a good year for R3E. Looking forward to the new patch and features and if as much progress is made this year as last then it will be.

    (Fanboy alert) Great sim despite the missing features so, every little thing that's implemented gets it closer to perfection.

    A sim with great potential but it's of course hilarious that it takes this long to bring back features such as setup saving that have been industry standards since sim racing on the PC started back in 1852.

    Still too many things missing for this game to be called next-gen. Awesome graphics, even better sounds, decent selection of cars and tracks but for the rest it's missing a plethora of features.

    Another step in the right direction. Of course something essential like this should've been there from the start, but it's not like other sims are doing much better in regard to availability of key features.

  16. Does anyone know if it saves the setup to a file?
    Or does it store it in R3E servers?

    As other's have already said it was about time this was added but whenever I heard interviews on the subject (or read articles online) the feeling I got was it was something that was difficult to implement, whether that was due to the way the game works I don't know.

    Still one of my favourite sims and I would use it more (the DTM's are great fun) but most leagues use GSCE, AC, or RF2 so those I practise on the most. The online servers just became a mess so I stay away from those now! ;)
  18. Wow, welcome to next gen

    Mmm...indeed, looked over that one. But i think WF was later than R3E.
