    My Summer Car August Update.jpg
    Catch up on the latest happenings and changes with the August 2018 update for My Summer Car here!

    It's been a little while since My Summer Car was updated, April 30th to be exact, but that doesn't mean the game has been left to drift along without any care or attention, far from it in fact. Developed by a select group of one, My Summer Car is one of those games that you just enjoy playing and watching it grow from a funny idea into something rather more substantial - usually receiving the most bizarre of change logs in the process.

    The new August update is no exception to this, adding plenty in the way of fixes to the title whilst also sneaking in one or two new features and changes such as... playing not dying from fatigue.., or new grilling systems... because why not, hey?

    You can check out the full change log below:

    August 18 Update Notes
    • WARNING 1: Valve adjustments have changed, be careful not to rev the car until you or Fleetari has fixed it!
    • WARNING 2: Satsuma 3d model has changed, so delete your meshsave.txt file to avoid graphical glitches
    • Fixed issue (again) with in-game clock not working correctly when sleeping
    • Fixed issue with front wheel alignment resetting into incorrect angle upon every game load

    • Fixed several bugs with tires when they were replaced by Fleetari while installed to the car

    Hi there,
    has nobody else got the FPS-problem, when Modloader is installed?
    As the update is (quite) the same as the experimental-beta-version where the problem was already apparent, is there any idea to fix it?
    Best, Mark

    Do like this one, it's just like real life. Come home from work, go to shed, do stuff, end up drunk and injured. At least it doesn't hurt as much on the pc.

    I love this game! I don't actually own this game, and I have never played this game
    but I love this game! (I saw it here, watched some vids, and cracked up laughing!)
    so I guess now is the time to go buy it, (being all updated and stuff, ya know)
