I think the game looks really good so far. You guys are doing a great job!

I'm curious as to what visual changes you will make. My only suggestion for visual changes is to either move the painted lines on the tarmac (using GR terminology :D ) to the edge of the track or to move the kerbs in to where the lines are. It looks slightly odd to me to have a space between the track lines and the kerbs. (That, and maybe not have the pavement so dark for Laguna Seca). But to me the cars and scenery and tracks in general already look really good! :)

I hope they will be just working on that. I hope they won't resign from that because of Kickstarter failure...

They said they will still be working on it regardless of what happens on Kickstarter. Maybe once they have a working game they can get it on Steam Greenlight.

We do have some news! We're still developing the game at our normal pace and funding it with our day jobs. At the moment we're doing a full visual upgrade with much better solutions for graphic performance. In January we'll begin working on the 'front-end' which are menus and all the structure holding the game together, saving information, etc. We won't build more content, just polish what we have and try to finish the first version as soon as we can without rushing it.

They posted a good looking GT car on Twitter this past week.

I think it will be just a starting point. Hopefully there is a car editor later on...

I don't think a car editor is in their plans, as they want to keep it a fairly closed ecosystem to assure maximum online capability without having to find the right stuff.

This month we've been working on the structure of the game, so not a lot of visual progress but it's now becoming a proper program.

There won't be a car editor for the reasons Puttz exposed above. A track editor however is something that I feel would make it 10 times better, so after releasing the first version we'll start working on that.

We'll build a full GT3 grid Mr. Marinator!

That sounds great, Sir blastawaythewall :) . Don't get me wrong, I like the GT-R, it's just my least favourite GT car though.

A question:
Will there be multiple car choices for all classes? Like F1 (classic), WRC, etc..?

Do you have any plans including CAN-AM classics?

It's great to have so many manufacturers taking part in GT racing right now. I hope it lasts.

All categories will have multiple vehicles with varying acceleration, top speed, weight and handling. They will be fairly balanced but a lightweight car will have a slight advantage on tight circuits while a heavier, more powerful car will be slightly better in a bigger track. There will be a difference in feel but not so much in laptime.

Oh boy Can-Am is awesome. We won't have them to begin with as we're going with historic GTs from the 50s and 60s. Post release, absolutely mate. I actually would love to see more of it in sim racing. It deserves proper content.

Hehehem sure we all are.

Guys, question for the admins of this forum: when will you open an specific forum for Apex? I think it is needed already. They are posting a lot of content in the social neetworks and would be cool to have a forum with the chance to open diferent threads. :bsmile:

Thanks for reading.

I think that Apex team should create own forum or other website with informations.
