- ONLINE COMPATIBLE with previous version -
so no worries if the server still runs the Academy 0.93
it's just a visual update.


Just a quick tweak on the material of the body paint. (will look the same as the 420R)
and matching said paint between LODs, as well as LHD / RHD
(one more skin bonus, meanwhile i sort all of the season 2020, should upload them soonish here : https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/caterham-academy-2017-skins.20545/ )

No plan on editing the physics.
For a start, all the actual racing drivers didn't complain about it :D
And then, I still don't have the Max files anymore to update anything easily anyways
So why isn't it 1.0 then ?? I wouldn't know anymore...
  • physic is untouched
  • less objects! in all the LOD (pain to do ...) - for hopefully better performance
  • momo on the steering is now part of the mesh, preventing from clipping from distance and on large tracks
  • same clipping issue solved with rear fog light
  • dash_cam fixed for LHD
  • flying steering should be gone as well (dummy place was wrong)
  • & don't forget the skins ;) https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/caterham-academy-2017-skins.20545/
Few fixes & updates (no physic change)
  • Improvement of the number of objects, hoping for better performance!
  • fog lights glass fixed + (center race light) no longer a brake light (as per official regulation)
  • no more rev lights (sorry, official regulation, but it's coming on the 420r! =)
  • Hierarchy RHD/LHD
  • Skins deleted (2 left) and now available here with a bonus one : http://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/caterham-academy-2017-skins.20545/
  • Brake flexible working in the showroom but messed up in race :/ will fix next update
  • Car paint material updated (for the best ?)
  • Added details on the cockpit still following official regulations
    • vbox box and cables
    • gps box
    • time box

    • New molded seat!
  • updated LOD_B for both versions
  • shaking parts on reving
  • few other things i might have forgotten :p
Hoping i didn't mess up new thing as i usually do :D
  • RHD finally here ;) with Miles speedo for our british friends!
  • Skin template is the same for both LHD and RHD :thumbsup:
  • fixed analog data matching digital (rpm & speedo) (merci Jacques for noticing!)
  • changed previews of the car using : http://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/retrolux-previews.19329/
    @Retrolux did a great job! Let's enjoy it, cars are looking far less plastic! (ironic for a caterham i know XD)

    You can revert it using Content Manager if you don't like it.
  • KNOW ISSUE : that damn right flexible brake animation is broken, and it's driving me nuts, so be it, it will stay as is.:whistling:
  • no update on physics yet, hence version 0.9

EDIT: i forgot the parent/child UI thing XD next update...


  • sound switched to the Abarth Assetto Corse (previous was street version and was giving issues)
