I was looking for an excuse to learn some python/mesh stuff, and i love AC so it was a perfect match! So I present to you the originally named "Car Radar"!

Installation - Merge assettocorsa folder in zip file with main assettocorsa installation folder

Features -
  • Car shapes on mini map
  • Working rotations relative to player
  • Fade in/fade out (optional)
  • Config options - size, colour, angle, range, etc
  • Low gfx setting
  • Proximity mode showing how close cars are through colour
  • Blue Flags
  • Blind spot warning flags
  • Background
Known Problems -

  • Ford Mustang 2015 collider skewed (thanks Kunos :p)
  • Vr fix download (click me)
  • Some car outlines have a few extra lines
  • Please report any you find in the support thread!
  • Will take some fps, make sure you raise your fps cap, the app is drawn after the fps cap is applied
  • If app fails to load, try deleting config.txt in Documents/AssettoCorsa/Apps/CarRadar
Thanks to Yan Bissonette for his crazy driving/testing help, without him I wouldn't have needed to make this app. Also thanks to Esotic for all his tips and ideas, and to Deswribilator for his awesome icons!

This has now taken me many, many hours to complete, so if you'd like to buy me a beer, I'd love it!

It's good for normal mode but in VR its bugged and shows a red gear icon on the top of vision and its always on the same place, can cause burn-ins to the HMD.
Check the support thread for VR fix :D
Was using Helicorsa before, was awful for Drifting since it doesn't show rotation and car shape. This is a massive improvement
Yes! Tandem baby!
Fantastic for single screen low FOV. Set up in my peripheral vision it works great without having to look at it directly. Love it.
Super helpful, especially for single screen users. The customizability is nice and the function is great to promote clean racing.
Keep it clean!
I installed the app with content manager and when i start a race first od all it does not work the app is on my screen but it does not show the cars and when i start a race a kn5conv says it could not start
could you help me please
I could help you yes, but please post in the support thread for help :)
so useful. thank you
Can i get some help. have downloaded and i have ticked it in UI but still not loading when racing. Do i have to turn on anywhere else?
Please post in the discussion thread or message me if you need help. I'll be happy to assist.
Great app but suddenly I can't get it to load into the game - through CM or through main game launcher - I select it to load, but when playing, it doesn't show up on "My Apps" list.
A must for single screen or low-FoV users. Or even triple screen users. It is dead accurate, shows other cars perfectly around you and the settings are also nice. It really helps me being contact-free in the race!
it was good till it stopped working :(
Good apps for people with only 1 screen!
App is great, and the dev is awesome at addressing any bugs that come up!
Just what I always wanted. :-}
hey! i've been trying really hard to get this to work, but i can't for the life of me make it, can i get help?
Thanks for the review!
works exactly as intended and as described!
Thanks for the review :D
Very helpful on my 1 monitor setup
First of all , this is an amazing APP and deserved 5 stars, but sadly it doesn't work since this afternoon, I already tried to delete all related files and re-install this app, but still the same, not working, need help from the developer, many thanks !!
I sadly can't get this app to work
Excellent app, just perfect!!! Thank you very much for sharing with us. Is there anyway to improvise a fix for the Mustang?
Hey, yes! Some excellent fellow called Correca posted an alternative file here, https://www.racedepartment.com/threads/car-radar.136781/page-8. PM if you have further problems. Thank you for the review.
Great app!
