Public Release B1323: Driving Dynamics & Soundtrack

First off, we would like to thank all of you who helped out in the open beta the past week by posting feedback
and bugreports. While there are still quite a few issues but all critical problems should be resolved. We've already
started work on the next update that focuses on filling the aerodynamics tab with options and adds an interior &
driving aids tab, along with the main car stats: sportiness, tameness, prestige, comfort and safety.

As we are paying some $350/month for bandwidth, for those of you who want to help us out in saving some of that
and probably get faster download speeds as well, we give you the torrent download option now - just check which
version you need. Tomorrow, the game will be available via auto-update as well.

A very compact tool for using torrents would be uTorrent, which you can download here. If you choose to try
the torrent, install the client linked above, or use your own, then download the torrent file below and start it up!
It's really simple. It would be great if you could seed the file for a few days! :)

Torrent for those who played the Open Beta: B13xx to B1323 (13 MB)
Torrent for those on the Latest Public Build: B1198 to B1323 (314 MB)
Torrent for those that need a Fresh Install: B0 to B1323 (725 MB)


Everyone who preordered the forced induction version of the game (turbocharged, silver, gold, or platinum rank)
also gets the Automation Original Soundtrack for download. You can get it via the forum user control panel here.
If you have any feedback or questions regarding the soundtrack, you can leave them here

Now go and build some awesome engines and cars! :) Cheers!

As soon as I'll download it, I'll be seeding "B13XX to B1323" until 1324 comes along =D

So what changed from 1322? I figure it's not much, but all I saw was lower service costs on the engine.

Turbo piping still goes crazy on I6 engines at about 7+ liters. I haven't noticed any other bugs, but I'll come back and reply if I find any.

Re: Public Release B1323: Driving Dynamics & Soundtrack

I'm sorry if I'm seeding only "my" patch, but I don't have GBs on my HDD in order to support the other two torrents and my internet speed is not so good in order to downloading a 725 MB file... :oops: :( :cry:

So I have 2 doubts (o 1 bug and 1 doubt):

- (possible bug): in the "model screen" - section "rims and tires" -, when I choose the tires and I don't see any visual differences of the tread, I mean: shouldn't different tires (off-road, long life road and slicks) have different tread patterns?
simple examples:
Off-Road: http://houstonusedtires.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/off-road1.jpg
On-Road: http://image.highperformancepontiac.com/f/tech/hppp_1208_high_performance_pontiac_2012_tire_guide/36682952/hppp-1208-08-o-%2Bhigh-performance-pontiac-2012-tire-guide%2Bcontinental-tire.jpg
Slick: http://image.mustang50magazine.com/f/editorials/yokohama-goes-environmentally-friendly-with-its-new-advan-uhp-tire/17428143/yokohamas-new-advan-uhp-tire-featuring-super-nano-power-rubber.jpg

- (doubt): I don't understand why when I "create" a platform I have also to choose the body.
I mean is this a platfom or not? See the three images in the link of Autocar UK
For example about Fiat Group Auto, Grande Punto/Punto Evo/Punto 2012/Alfa MiTo/Fiat Qubo/(and many others smaller or bigger) are different models on a single platform, I don't think that in Fiat they consider that they have at minimum 5 platforms, but 1 platfom (FGA Small Platform) with 5 and more models "based" on it, am I right?! :D
Hope I explained my thought clearly.

P.S. I repeat, sorry for my english level...
P.P.S. Please insert the BBCode code to resize the images [img=NxN][/img] or the "spoiler" code so we can post the images without the fear to change the "witdh" or the "length" of the thread/page.

Re: Public Release B1323: Driving Dynamics & Soundtrack

Seeding all 3, but only when my laptop is "awake".

Platforms are common chassis, body-shape, and size. A good example is the GM A body, a midsized platform (in the 60s-70s) which included the Chevy Chevelle, Pontiac Tempest, Oldsmobile Cutlass, and Buick Special (and all variants). The GM Delta platform, however, is a bit out of sorts with this definition. Chevy Cobalt and Pontiac G5 were very similar bodies, and the Saturn Ion was mostly similar. The Chevy HHR, however, was a wagon also built on the Delta platform, so I suppose it has, at least somewhat, evolved. As for your Fiat examples, the C-platform (Stilo) includes the Stilo, the Bravo, and the Lancia Delta (and variants).

Re: Public Release B1323: Driving Dynamics & Soundtrack

Yeah, there are a few possible meanings of platform, we're taking it to mean everything that shares a body and rough mechanical configuration. (engine placement, suspension type)
