To thank all of you for the phenomenal launch of C.A.R.S., Slightly Mad Studios is giving all members universal-access to the newest build - regardless of your membership position.

The new build comes with two major additions, Race Mode & the all-new Test Track.

For more on the new build, check out the frontpage story here (http://www.wmdportal.com/projectnews/friday-cars-build/)!

Thanks Rob, it's DLing. Any chance you could put in an autoupdater in a coming build so we log in, then it autoupdates (similar to what Minecraft does)

Also do I need to remove the old build or can I simply install over the top?

A client for updates will be coming in the future. For now, please make sure to always uninstall the old build before installing the new one. Your settings are being kept :)

Thanks really much!! :D

I agree for an autoupdater, would be really useful!

Thanks.
The new test track is great, love the hill climb.
Having other cars like the AI really bring the game to life as well.

Indeed, first pass basic AI chaps. We'll refine them together.

Great update! Test track, especially hillclimb is good idea and great fun to drive. Game runs now much better (all settings except shadows in max), also steering feels very good now.

ahahah, probably like those of the old and great GPL, that AI never had mercy for anyone simply pull you out of the track
this promise very well :D

Small issue: uninstalled previous buil, but the "Profiles/CustomisedControllers" folders and "graphicsconfig (2x)" files in the .../documents/CARS folder were not deleted.

This is actually a feature... This way you won't have to set everything up each time

And you carry over issues from previous profiles/builds, so I doubt it is seen as a feature ;)

Well, the only thing you have there are config files for settings such as controls and gameplay options you might have changed, so unless SMS changes the formatting of those files or add new options you have nothing to worry about.
They said in another thread that unless they specify it you wont need to delete those files.

Of course it's a feature, otherwise you would have to set up your wheel and all settings every week with every new build :)

Exactly. Now we can really see the cars we drive in action.

Thx for this new built!

I like the new test track but thought it was going to include a real drag strip ... Maybe or another time :-) I think it's something missing from sims ...

One thing I would like to say to the members higher up, is that the community will appreciate these random special releases of the game that weren't announced. If you do things like this often, you'll keep a lot of us extremely happy. It let's us know that you guys actually give a "crap" about us. Thanks again for the release. =]
