This is a great oppurtunity to play a great game a year early...get the game on release...and potentially make money off of it...i dont think theres a sweeter deal that ever existed!

A quick question..."Receive a free copy of the released game". Is that on any platform or just a PC copy? And if someone would choose a console version, how would the mods/patches/and other files be distibuted?

Thanks.

Done.

I like this nice little detail: "Get an opponent named after you"

You doing are a great job so far, just keep up this pace and we all will have a wonderful game.

So does that now mean, so called share holder,(now referred to as member) is no longer entitled to any future profit? If so this means that PCars is no longer an investment but just another way for customer to purchase a game. ( iracing ). My intention was to helping out a company, which is my hobby.

Dan Blamey
17-02-2012, 05:57
Nope, it's still the same deal as before, just that team members will get a discount voucher/coupon to the value of their membership with which to buy the game. No one was ever a 'shareholder' and it has been stated multiple times this is not an 'investment' in the strict sense of the word.

( iracing ) If I Knew you guys were here to lie and mislead your shareholders! ,now members ,then I would never have contributed. My intention was to helping out a company, which is my hobby. Sad world really.
So you first ask a question (which you should if things aren't clear) but then immediately jump to conclusions before the question has been answered and call SMS liars? Not a good way to go about if you would like to stay here (and hence share in future profit).

It never was an investment to begin with, please get your facts straight before accusing us of something.

Every one should read this before uttering anything negative or of what SMS has informed anyone about to this point regarding Terms and conditions....

Upgrated. Pcars is now critized in many simracing league forum but IMO, Pcars is supposed to be the best sim ever made when it is finished. How will look hardcore RF2 fans in one year? Probably playing PcArs.

Just upgraded this morning, cant say enough about how impressed i am with this game so far, every time i have had a small issue in one build it seems to be fixed in the next build.

Love the choice of cars, and 2 of my top 5 tracks are already here, just add nordschleife on the next build please lol.

I just updated to Full Member as well, heck, just lurking these forums, has made it worth while for me. Pretty much everything about this project is awesome and lots of great learning for a nooby like me.

Thanks everyone, from Devs being so active, constantly providing information on what their plans are/what they are up to, for including us/pretty much allowing us to make decisions on how the game path should go, and just being awesome in general. Also, even the non-devs, I've learned a lot from you all, so muchas gracias.

Is there somewhere we can see how many members there are in the different Tiers? The info on top of the forum is great, but it whould be interesting to see how the (38,5K ) members are spread out on the Tiers.

This is very true.
But doing this everytime I come in to get a feel for the progression of the Tears is not my type of cake.
This is not an important feature. By far not. But it whould be fun.

Some members have a custom access (especially the Managers and Senior Managers), so these numbers wouldn't be true. Also the number of members doesn't tell you about the real progression, because it's the total amount that counts (if we look at financial aspect): in example a Junior upgrading to Full Member remains a single account, but he/she's contribute more.

I'm a bit surprised to see this: "Receive a free copy of the released game" in the full member perks.

From what I understood back in October, everyone would get a free copy of the game. It is even stated here (http://www.wmdportal.com/projectnews/tool-packs-perks-and-fees-101/#more-309):

Not only that, but when the game is ultimately released, you’ll receive a free copy and money back based on its success and your position on the team.

Maybe I'm mistaken and since the old terms and conditions are no more available it is not easy to see what have changed but this is the impression I had when I bought my junior membership.

I'm a bit surprised to see this: "Receive a free copy of the released game" in the full member perks.

We asked our members to decide to abandon the initial Free2Play model for a more traditional Retal Copy game, the retail copy won (outcome of the poll). Initially the Junior and Team Members were receiving the game client (as anyone else, since it was "free") plus an equivalent (in money) game contents, but with a traditional game distribution this wasn't possible anymore, so we decided (after another poll) to introduce the "Full Member" tier, that will receive a free copy of the game; while the Junior and Team Members will receive a discount over the retail price of the exact amount of what they paied (10 and 25 euro).
We had two big yellow notices at the top of the forum, to inform the people about this changes, asking them to vote: it is essential you surf the forum occasionally, if you want to be informed of what's happening.

Thanks for this detailed answer. I haven't been able to come around lately thus I was not aware of any of these polls.
