Does Ian's shirt say "BOSS"? That's awesome, just a gentle reminder.

Yeah "Dat Bezel", what is that beautiful screen? (Make/model)

Pardon, but could we get a 'who's who' in the 2nd pic? Well.. I know Ian, Tom, Andy T.. but the other 3?

Boy you can really tell the difference between the pro driver and the geeks eh? Nic's upper body.. damn..

Just out of curiosity, are you guys testing the tire pressure 'exploit' on that last pic? Would be nice to get some input on that, I would have thought that an extreme low tire pressure would increase the risk of it coming off the sidewall and produce a spongy feeling, but then I've never driven on a tire with extremely low pressure before :P

Excessive heating will result from that when the model is finished.

Nic's upper body? Ian looks like he crushes skulls and makes a bowl of skullios for breakie

Also the only boss who can rock a pinstripe blazer and blue jeans.

In Pic #2 you can see the alien tendrils that Tom has coming from his neck. He uses these to test several multiplayer games simultaneously.

Guys seriously, I'd really love to see more like this. More pictures from inside the studio, from people working, having fun etc.

By the way, I didn't know that Nicholas is so small! But as driving skills doesn't come with a big wallet, they don't come with body height either, I guess.

Well like I said, it would be really nice if you show us more and different things and not just a bit now and then never again, but just continue to show us things from time to time.

Hugh Crummond

No more ot from me...,

Theres been enough ot this past week, because there was so little to report issue-wise in the last build.

Nic's visit came at a good point :-)
Im off to watch the "documentary" about his racing exploits, it was on tv last year.
Friendly guy, can see why it was fun in the office.

I don't, that's what I see while behind the windshield: I sit into the cockpit (my racing frame), then there's with (real) wheel, then there's my windshield (my monitor) and then the "virtual world", starting from the car bonnet. In other words the windshield is the "window" to the outside (while in fact it is). I agree: the fov and the proportions aren't correct, but I find it better than see my racing frame around me, and then again another "frame" inside the game, I feel like I am driving the car remotely, without being really there, while having only the exterior behind my windshield (even with not the exact positioning of the head) give to me much more immersion and the feel of a real car.

I can see him going bat cave crazy trying to get 10 minutes of far off "vista" shots inside the office.

Good thing they have that nice TV in there...

They can set him off in a corner with that and he can film off of it with the historic tracks and the "notRing" for a couple weeks...

Just remind him to have a car in the shot once in awhile...

Sounds like a very friendly handshake.

Sad.

Honestly, after Nic's handshake I know when I'm licked.

He one of those guys who smiles real big and talks really enthusiastically while he crushes the bones in your hand to dust? :) I could totally see that.

Jus messin with ya Nic. :P

I can't remember whether we posted this but there was a plan for the Mono boys, including Oliver Web (http://www.oliwebbracing.com) to come in to the office recently to try the game and give feedback (and bring us a Mono to drool over!). Unfortunately they had to reschedule at the last minute so this will be happening soon instead.

Are you also planning on doing the same thing for other car manufacturers, like say for example mister Pagani?

As the foremost Australian ambassador for the BAC Mono (in my dreams! ...:a01:), I think it's only fair that I'm flown in from Sydney to inspect – and drive – the car firsthand. :rolleyes:

No one can beat my mate.. He's a carpenter and shakes your hand like it's a piece of wood that has disobeyed. You always end up down on your knees infront of him due to a natural reaction when your hand gets squashed lol

Nice, but how did you added N.H. as member when FSA disallowed this? :D
I thing the monitor was put too high. Nicolas had to watch his track by looking up, not directly:D

I guess he was invited or added as part of the team.
The FSA only forbid upgrades and new members 'investing' as far as I know. ;)

He joined before the FSA got involved, I seem to recall...

Kinda reminds me of my old fighting instructor. He knew all these aikido wrist locks or whatever. He could have you dancing or on the floor just my controlling your hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder... You name it. Was a Jeet Kune Do Concepts instructor with background in TKD.

Not a large man, he was like 5'6", 150lbs. But he was built thick and wins crazy points.

I still say Ian looks like a Rugby player. I bet he even has a secret Rugby Nickname. :p But probably not a Danny 'Robolock' Grewcock type. heheh

It's quite crucial. Depending on the settings my TV has a lag of 30 ms or 80+ ms.

(For anyone who is interested, I use a LG 47LK950S)

Anyway, can't wait for Nic's input. I am sure being in a racing environment via karting and later Lewis his career initially helps a lot top. Go Nic!
