    Assetto Corsa Modding Roundup.png
    Month two of our Sim Racing Modding Roundup comeback article feature is here again, this time having a look at what's hot in the world of Assetto Corsa community created content. In this edition we showcase a nice variety of classic road and race cars, some iconic Formula One machinery and a little known low powered open wheel racer that packs more than a little punch!

    I would again like to take this opportunity to remind you that in no way do RaceDepartment endorse these mods or take any responsibility whatsoever for any issues caused by downloading these files. The idea behind the articles is rather simple, to help throw light on some of the wonderful community content created for our favourite racing simulators. If you feel we have missed out some "must have" content, or want to draw my attention to a project you are working on, please feel free to drop me a PM or leave a message in the comments section below….

    An interesting new addition to the Assetto Corsa stable of vehicles, eboo and co bring the rather epic looking Mercedes 190 RM1 Hill Climb machine to the simulation. Backed up with a super powerful Judd V8 engine for maximum grunt out of corners and up the hills, the Mercedes is a very well rounded modification already, despite still requiring some further attention to detail with regards to the physics. Handling is very nicely done, sound is impressive and the 3d modelling has been completed to a very high standard. An interesting car for a niche within the sim racing community and well worthy of a download.

    Another excellent Formula Easter open wheel racer from jurik1984 and co, the AE2 is another outstanding little low power racing car with some very engaging driving characteristics. Well rounded in all departments, this scratch built mod runs on the latest Assetto Corsa version 10 tyre model and is another very worthy addition to the sim. With many of the big sims featuring all the "usual" cars and tracks, it feels incredibly refreshing to find such little known vehicles as the AE2 being built to a this high a standard by the community. Perfect for the smaller tracks in AC, this is yet another great addition to the sim.

    Quite simply one of the most aesthetically stunning Formula One cars in the history of the sport, the Ferrari 643 from 1991 makes its bow in Assetto Corsa courtesy of the ASR Formula Modding Group. The car is a first release for Assetto Corsa after a distinguished release history in rFactor 2, the Ferrari 643 has been reproduced for the sim in absolutely exceptional fashion. Visually astounding in its attention to detail, with sounds that genuinely capture the spirit of that fierce Ferrari V12 (arguably one of the finest sounding engines ever), this is, without even the smallest room for doubt, an absolutely essential download for anyone with even the slightest interest in Formula One cars. Truly exceptional and I can't wait to see how the other F1 releases shape up from the group.

    You can never have enough Porsche's now can you? Ensyuya and Patrice Cote certainly don't think so with their release of the 1956 era Porsche 550A for Assetto Corsa. Lovingly built and brought to the sim, the 550A looks and feels wonderful in the game. Believable (and enjoyable) physics compliment the very high quality 3d modelling perfectly. To bring this mod into the very top tier of community creations the car could benefit from further attention in the sound department, however this does not distract greatly from the overall experience. The Porsche 550A is a wonderfully entertaining car to drive and a perfect match for racers with a taste for the old school racing experience.

    Another old school car produced to the high standards one would expect from A3DR, the Honda S800 Cabriolet is already at a very very high standard, despite its 0.9b build status. With exceptional attention to detail once again lavished on this mod, the car really does look first rate when out on the track. Still awaiting additional attention to the gear shift animation and bespoke sounds, this car is already a long way towards a fully polished product. The Honda S800 offers up an entertaining drive that requires a keen attention to maintaining momentum, this is yet another fantastic download for fans of the older style of vehicle. With further development promised, and a potential coupe model in the works, this is indeed a mod to keep an eye on. A must download.

    Possibly one of the quickest releasing pieces of content in gaming history, Tyrone has brought the brand new 'The Grand Tour' test track to Assetto Corsa, direct from the new TV series featuring former Top Gear trio Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May. Ok so the track looks to be in an early stage of development, but simply having the track in game already is truly outstanding. Further development has been promised to work on some of the sub optimal textures displayed in the current build, however at this early stage the mod already looks highly promising.

    An immense 23km long stretch of open coastal road modelled on the real Cape San Martin to the San Carpoforo Valley in California, this current release is the south route only with a further north route to be added in the very near future - however it already looks visually outstanding. Beautiful scenery and entertaining corners make up a rather unique track to sample some of the many cars in Assetto Corsa (I'm thinking Cobra...), this is a lovely creation that is well worth a try. With spaces for 24 cars, working timing and AI, this mod is already looking very good despite being granted only a build 0.367 status. The current issues have been acknowledged by track author Phoenix77 and are scheduled to receive attention in future updates. Already a great track that looks like it could very well become epic very soon.

    SIM TRAXX have released yet another visually attractive rally location for Assetto Corsa, this time bringing beta build 0.85 of the Italian Monte Erice location in Sicily. Both Hill Climb and Downhill versions are included in the download, with further optimizations and improvements already in the pipeline as the team build up to a version 1 release in the future. Well advanced in its current development, the Monte Erice track is a really nice edition to the sim and has the potential to join the ranks of one of the best rally locations in Assetto Corsa. A very nice start, with more still to come.

    I guess Riverside 1.0 didn't make the cut...

    Edit: I understand why it is missing now. Links can be found below. This was a good month for the AC modding scene.

    I shouldn't be too hard on Paul my friend, he does write a lot of items for the website and doesn't always feature everything relevant all the time. Put a link for the track on here, it's an awesome track and that's what this forum post is all about. Getting the word out for quality pieces of work :thumbsup:

    Nice article as always @Paul Jeffrey I've always supported ASR Formula with a little donation to get hold of the other cars in the "catalogue". Not sure where we are at the moment with sounds on the cars (thanks to the last AC update) but I haven't had chance to test them all again yet :)

    I have to agree with the you on the The Grand Tour track, that was seriously quick work! :laugh::thumbsup:

    Nor the XJ13 update... I assume only new mods make the cut, not updates. (No matter how awesome, clearly. ;) )

  7. Riverside and VIR are epic my Friend, that's unfortunately the thing with these lists, it will always leave something out just by the nature of it, having to pick a small selection,

    Just my opinion...

    Riverside is indeed epic, in fact I'll go as far as to say one of the best tracks released for AC (along with VIR). It's not featured in this one because it already had a feature previously (same as the Jag and VIR) and we simply had too many "new" mods worth covering to be able to include it in this months update. Sorry chaps :) If in future articles we don't have many good "new" mods then of course I'll focus on some of the better updates, but as mentioned above by @ETandK , so many things and such limited space (that's why apps or skins usually don't get featured either).

    Sorry guys, I try my best :)

    Riverside feature - http://www.racedepartment.com/threa...undup-june-2016-assetto-corsa-edition.123391/
    Jag feature - http://www.racedepartment.com/threa...undup-july-2016-assetto-corsa-edition.124372/
    VIR feature - http://www.racedepartment.com/threa...up-october-2016-assetto-corsa-edition.127361/

    Edit: I actually kinda forgot Riverside had an update, awesome!! Really looking forward to getting that downloaded tonight when I've finished the xmas decorations...

    I win guessing!

    Nothing to apologize for - if you did a writeup on every update for every mod for every game every month, I think your fingers would seize up. ;)

    Well if it indeed came from you they should at least give you credit for it.

  16. What makes you think they are using your old rfactor1 version, they have a donation tab so I suppose they are not using this old dated rfactor1 version, because they have credits for who created the physics and the models, plus Kunos has their own model which they could use as a base for their own creation, and not some old dated rfactor1 version.
