    Reiza Studios have released new content for their Game Stock Car title, announcing a name change and future plans for the GSC franchise.

    With the release of the new 1.15 version that introduces both the Formula V12 car, 1988 version of the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve as well as the Floripa track, Game Stock Car 2013 is renamed to Game Stock Car Extreme as more DLC content for the title is planned.

    This update and future content will be free for all owners of Game Stock Car 2013 (not including the original Game Stock Car & 2012 update!), the new version features the following changes:

    Content

    - Added Floripa race track + 4 kart layouts;
    - Added Montreal 1988;
    - Added Interlagos Historic external ring layout;
    - Added Formula V12 (field currently limited to 4 teams and drivers for v1.15 – more to come in v1.20).

    General features / Bug Fixes

    - Added fix for CTD when qualifying sessions are turned off;
    - Added options to switch qualifying off and manually set grid position;
    - Added fix for pre-race grid reordering functionality (for Dedicated only);
    - Corrected flag animations flapping widely when a time acceleration is in place;
    - Support for realtime steering wheel rotation adjustment from the Controller menu (min 180º max 900º);
    - Adjusted default rearview height / width;
    - Minimum vertical FOV setting adjusted from 35º to 10º;
    - Adjusted default shadow updates, sky update frames for smoother shadow transitions;
    - Executable now is set to include +fullproc by default (for better performance in modern CPUs);
    - Tire compounds may now have different textures (configured using cockpitinfo.ini file – see F-Reiza for example);
    - Driver name labels have been adjusted and relocated to a less instrusive look (still requires some tweaking).
    - Series RFMs have been made available for editing;
    - All series now have its own RFM, with the adittion of an ALL CARS / ALL TRACKS component (to be used wisely – don´t expect AI karts to work well in race circuits or race cars on kart tracks!)

    Tracks

    - Fixed issue with invisible walls in Caruaru;
    - Improved alternative cloudy sky texture;
    - Fixed sky issues with Cordoba and Brasilia;
    - Improved AI paths for Cordoba and Jacarepagua 2005.

    Audio

    - Slightly improved F-Retro onboard sounds;
    - Speed of sound adjusted from 290 m/s to 340 m/s (for slightly more realistic doppler effect);

    Physics

    - All cars have received a brake temperature response curve adjustment to generally provide better and feel and be less susceptible to lock-ups;
    - F-Retro tires slightly adjusted;
    - Kart rear toe slightly adjusted.

    Along with the release, Reiza has outlined the plans for future DLC content, including:

    Cars

    Formula Extreme
    Formula Vee Brasil
    Metalmoro MR18
    Opala Stock Cars 1986
    Superkart
    Stock Car V8 2014
    Tracks

    Austrian Ring 1976
    Kyalami 1976
    Jacarepagua 1988
    Bologne 1988
    Austrian Ring 2014
    Buenos Aires 2014
    While all these additions are confirmed to be already in development, Reiza also has plans to add fundamental new features to the title, including live dynamic track & weather, a new tire model simulating dirt, graining, blistering & flatspots as well as a new transmission model.

    To help fund these in-depth developments, Reiza will soon be unveiling a crowd-funding campaign so stay tuned for more on that.

    If you already own GSC 2013, the new content is a free update, which can be picked up by GSCSync. If you don't use GSCSync...you should be, it's like SimSync Pro just for GSC, and the best way of keeping it up to date. Here's a link:

    GSCSync.rar

    If you DON'T own GSC 2013 yet, you will have to download the full installation files from Reiza's website. NB: this update is NOT available in the main downloads area yet, but GSCSync will pick it up:

    game-stockcar.com

    :cool:

    The V12s are so much fun! With all the content still to come this game is well worth buying, the game engine may be old but Reiza have really got every last drop out of it. The graphics, sounds, AI, and ever increasing features are excellent.
    Plus the recently released tool for converting Rfactor tracks automatically works very well, it also does cars apparently, although I've heard some people have had problems.

    I tried updating via sync but it just kept cancelling itself after I told it to go!
    Ah well, will stick with RF2 ;)
  4. Rob Hermans SRP Manager

    I had the same problem to start with. I closed GSCSync, reopened the root folder, restarted GSCSync, and it was fine after that.

    Cheers mate, will update it later....
    Is it a complete new install, or over the top of the current one?
  7. Rob Hermans SRP Manager

    Yes and yes really, those files are for a fresh install. I don't think it makes a difference whether you uninstall the previous or not. Before you go that route though, try running GSCSync again - that problem seemed to right itself for me.
  8. Andy Bonar Licensed Driver

    Yeah, Ive tried it about 25 times now......going for a new install.
