You made my Day guys (and girls)!

Loving to see the 2008 BMW Sauber in and the M1 Procar :a12:

As asked in the licesing thread (maybe wrong place), will now the Formula A be redesigned to the 2008 BMW Sauber? Or will both stay in the Game...

I ll have to fulfill a few clichés about my person here: I m torn.

One the one hand, almost every car in that list is a great car seen individually and the BTCC 3 Series, the 1M, the 1991 M3 Group A and the 2012 GT cars (YESSSSSSSSSSS!!! FINALLY!!! Superbigroundofstormingapplause!!!) make a hellalotta sense in the context of the game. As the Z4 was my weapon of choice in an earlier GT3 league, I m especially pleased to see the Nasenbär back! :D

On the other hand - disclaimer: to me! I might be totally wrong and accept any logical explaination! - the car selection seems less stringent and logical with each of those big announcements. I have yet to come by a good reason why you re choosing to spend such a lot of the car artists and physic artists limited time and budget on cars like the 1940 328, a late 90s LMP and the 2008 F1. Sorry, but I straight up dont understand the reasons leading to choose these cars. Like with the Trans Am Mustang, or the turbine Lotus, or the great cars, but whats the bloody use in simulating one single car out of a long gone multi manufacturer championship? Shouldnt the blatant empty spots in the career mode be filled with those resources instead/first? Why no DTM BMW to pit against the Audi? I dont get it. :(

PS: I did the 24h Nords in GT5 with the V12 LMR... I'm anxious to compare it... oh wait :D

A boatload of tintops, and something for the BTCC Focus and RS500 to race against.

I hate to pick fault but you missed half of Tom Onslow-Cole's surname in the announcement :)

Rob Prange
18-07-2012, 16:06
Why no DTM BMW to pit against the Audi? I dont get it. :(

You can be assured that there are good reasons for no DTM car being included...we`re not oblivious of the fact that people want them..but there's limits to everything.

Regarding the V12 LMR, if you can have a Le Mans winner in game you take it... it's Le Mans after all!

We had this discussion before, it's about offering something for everyone. F1 cars have a huge appeal to people so including it makes a whole lot of sense, especially since the F1.08 is one of the "last-era" F1 cars.

Andy Garton
18-07-2012, 16:09
I might be totally wrong
Possibly.

On a serious note, I (still) don't agree with your position here - for me, even if we don't ultimately license competitor cars to form a series, racing the LeMans car (say) in a "single make" race with lots of liveries would still be a ton of fun, especially online.

The late 90s LMP and the '08 F1 do seem like strange additions, and I'd also prefer to see some series filled out and some sensible competitors for cars that already exist. I am assuming though, that SMS will know best how to budget their time. Since we do not know exactly how negotiations for other licenses or series are going, it may make sense based on the cost of licensing the additional cars and the downtime for artists between other licenses to keep busy with some unique additions that may draw in some additional crowds.

Would definitely like to see series/classes matched up and filled out a bit better though.

Christian Schegtel
18-07-2012, 16:11
I love the fact that the team is made of car nuts... This is the reason why we've been given true gearhead selection of cars ever since the original Shift.

Congrats to everyone involved.

@FLX81. Up until now, we had a fictional F1 car. Now we will have a real, licensed one.

Big Ron
18-07-2012, 16:11
Also nobody knows what is still coming. Maybe for now there is no DTM BMW, but maybe a coming Mercedes license will offer sth. Same for the V12 LMR. I am sure BMW wasn´t the last license.

I actually prefer to race identical cars, that way if Im beat I know it was because of driving skill and not vehicle performance.
I'll also agree that focusing in trying to get something for everyone is ultimately a better goal than trying to make a limited number of full racing series.

I guess we will keep the FA, and the F1 BMW will be a direct competitor.

Will you "up-grade" the FA to a V12 now, and removed KERS and DRS, so its more in line with the '08?

Or keep them as 2 seperate entities?

It´s actually build after 2011-specs (clearly visible from the shape), so why should they change it?

Separate, 2008 and 2011 F1 cars were very different.

Andy, thats alright and fine to a degree with the Formula A. But 22 2008 BMW F1s disguised as McLarens, Ferraris, Renaults etc, that borders on travesty.

Maybe its just the timing. If the next licence agreements will fill the series that are planned for the career mode with life and competition, my argument will become pointless and I really hope it will turn out that way. But at this very moment, imho there is much too much of those special cars that should be the sideshow acts and not nearly enough beef to the career mode, which should be the main focus. We have nearly no cars that can be pitted against other cars as equal matches. It all appears a bit scattershot to me, tbh.

And if I didnt stretch out my nitpicking budget today already: I wish you would have gotten the i8, that would have been a great first for a sim and something truly spectacular and unique. I m not complaining that though, acquiring that one is probably not easy currently... and even if you got it, you couldnt announce it today, I suppose. ;)

Calaros
18-07-2012, 16:33
This announcement just made my entire week. Outstanding announcement and selection of cars, just about everything I was hoping for from a BMW announcement :D It's seriously hard to choose which one I'm most excited about - the M1 Procar will be an absolute joy, but I also can't wait to race that Group A M3 E30 against its Sierra Cosworth rival.

Out of interest though, in a hypothetical situation where the WTCC did make it into the game, would that 3-series touring car be easy enough to re-use in WTCC format? And would that actually be permitted in the parameters of the BMW licensing deal?

thats why Codemasters has DTM license... so for what i know, there will no official DTM cars from after 2000. Don't know how the will do it with the audi... but let's say, i know one who knows one who has seen someone working for a car company, and theirs cousin works there in the licensing part...

Awesome news, car selection sounds great.

I'm kinda missing that 2012 DTM BMW, and I'm wondering which cars will the M3 GT2 be fighting against.

But if Mercedes cames in, the 2011 AMG C-Class DTM will make much more sense than that 2012 BMW DTM ; so it could be a clever move.


Edit : didn't know about that Codemasters DTM licensing, but is it exclusive ?

Unfortunately i have to agree with the kitty and not the big dog in this instance.
I'd rather see a load of mini-GTR, mini-RACE type series, not full official grids because thats a lot to ask, but considering the game is trying to recreate the driver career, it seems to make sense to go out for licenses such as BTCC, WTCC, DTM, NASCAR, ALMS, V8 Supercars, FIA GT (still havent figured out its modern equivalent) and lower ones too.
Obviously quite a few of those are being filleds, we have 2 official BTCC cars, a V8, NASCAR, a not-Audi DTM & LMP car. It then seems odd when you have a DTM car, and of the 3 manufacturers in that series when the BMW license rolls in, theres no BMW DTM car.

I'd just rather have say 5-8 well known series fictionally reinacted in pCARS, with a load of exciting cars able to make up the 1-car series races.
Like Felix, i find it odd to get an 80s Touring car, unless we're going to recreate that era as a class. Theres nowt wrong with a handful, but it feels a little like a scattered selection, rather than anything strategic. Im not saying it random, or wrong, im just saying it isnt what i was expecting considering the way the career route was talked about, i had hoped there would be an emphasis on creating replicas of real series with what cars you could get, and a ton of exciting cars to go with them.


I was hoping to see obvious classes start to form with each announcement, and from a racing series perspective, i think only the BTCC class has more than 1 car representing it, officially or otherwise. Theres a lot of time, i understand that, but skipping the DTM BMW has surprised me, it seemed rather obvious. I was hoping for more cohesion with the cars, and not just a ton of random amazing cars.

edit - if the codemasters licensing is true, that sucks, its such BS having these exclusive deals :(
Also want to say, i still believe thats a stunning set of cars to go with regardless, but as Felix is saying, im hoping to see a more cohesive selection, and maybe the DTM license prevents that and thats still the intention, although if so, IMO Andy didnt calm the matter saying its still the plan, but instead defended the 1-car series route, maybe its a misleading comment... dunno.

yeah, I don't care if we don't have any real series, just as long as we can match up 3-4 cars...call it the "SMS Cup" for all I care.

18-07-2012, 17:13
The 2012 DTM is a completely new concept and wouldn't be a direct competitor for the DTM Audi we have in the game. There was no DTM BMW before 2012, when the old Audis competed.

Fantastic selection of cars!

The Gr.5 320 Turbo is perfect match for the Zakspeed Capri Turbo. Now we need few more cars to complete the DRM Div II grid. :) There are few very interesting cars in the Div I though ;) (hint - Porsche 935, Toyota Celica Turbo - hint).

Also the Gr.A BMW M3 and the 2012 BTCC 3-series complement the Gr.A Sierra RS500 and the 2012 BTCC Focus ST respectively.

The BMW M1 Procar is another legendary racing car that formed a one-make support series for Formula 1 in 1979 and 1980, and also was used in the World Championship for Makes and DRM.

And finally the two modern GT cars!!! Just stunning news. :)

and here's me still grinning about the old 328 and feeling rather like Mr Toad :)


Glancing back, they saw a small cloud of dust, with a dark centre of energy, advancing on them at incredible speed, while from out the dust a faint `Poop-poop!' wailed like an uneasy animal in pain. Hardly regarding it, they turned to resume their conversation, when in an instant (as it seemed) the peaceful scene was changed, and with a blast of wind and a whirl of sound that made them jump for the nearest ditch, It was on them! The `Poop-poop' rang with a brazen shout in their ears, they had a moment's glimpse of an interior of glittering plate-glass and rich morocco, and the magnificent motor-car, immense, breath-snatching, passionate, with its pilot tense and hugging his wheel, possessed all earth and air for the fraction of a second, flung an enveloping cloud of dust that blinded and enwrapped them utterly, and then dwindled to a speck in the far distance, changed back into a droning bee once more.

Toad sat straight down in the middle of the dusty road, his legs stretched out before him, and stared fixedly in the direction of the disappearing motor-car. He breathed short, his face wore a placid satisfied expression, and at intervals he faintly murmured `Poop-poop!'

`Glorious, stirring sight!' murmured Toad, never offering to move. `The poetry of motion! The REAL way to travel! The ONLY way to travel! Here to-day--in next week to-morrow! Villages skipped, towns and cities jumped--always somebody else's horizon! O bliss! O poop-poop! O my! O my!'

`And to think I never KNEW!' went on the Toad in a dreamy monotone. `All those wasted years that lie behind me, I never knew, never even DREAMT! But NOW--but now that I know, now that I fully realise! O what a flowery track lies spread before me, henceforth! What dust-clouds shall spring up behind me as I speed on my reckless way!'

`What are we to do with him?' asked the Mole of the Water Rat.

`Nothing at all,' replied the Rat firmly. `Because there is really nothing to be done. You see, I know him from of old. He is now possessed. He has got a new craze, and it always takes him that way, in its first stage. He'll continue like that for days now, like an animal walking in a happy dream, quite useless for all practical purposes. Never mind him.'

BMW was kind of expected to make an appearance, but the actual car list is nothing short of amazing!
320 Group5, Z4 GT3 and M1 Procar are my favourites but then I read 328 Touring Coupe and my heart skipped a beat:a44:
Also the other cars are fantastic and fits very nicely in the game championships, very curious to see the 1M in action!
And the F1...Wow

Great great news SMS! Keep going this way!

If you guys keep pumping out huge licensing deals for crazy cars, we're going to far and away surpass the competition XD

Also, I want Targa Florio too. If that was the next announcement, everything would be gravy (and a porsche license would be the potatoes.)

A great list, congrats to the SMS team for their work.

I am most excited about the saloons, and the BMW LMR sounded awesome, V12 screamer.

I am sure that the car selection isn't to everyone's taste, however we have to trust in SMS. There are some BMW's that I would have liked to have seen included, however we don't know the score with licence costs etc and what conditions the manufacturers put on those.

I'm pretty sure that licensing cars isn't quite like going to a market and picking what you want, otherwise all the deals would have already been worked out.

I like the list, and I don't think SMS is going to dress up an F1 BMW to make it look like a Ferrari. If somebody skins it that way.. then that's their deal, not SMS'. The implied criticism is that SMS is randomly selecting cars despite the career mock-up that Andy Tudor published. That's just silly.

I agree that it's a silly idea that it's just a shotgun approach to licenses. I'm sure there are plenty of "if you want x, you must take y and z too" caviats and other intricacies to the licensing that we are unaware of. I think the concern is more that the cars that don't particularly fit into the outline will take away production time from the ones that do, which is a legitimate concern, IMHO. The Paganis and BACs and other cars have been absolutely top-notch thus far, and it'd be a shame to see the quality of other cars "more important" to the career outline suffer because of some random picks.

That said, I put my meager moneys into this project because I think SMS knows their craft better than I do, so I have faith that they know how to manage their projects.

Umer Ahmad
18-07-2012, 19:02
The selected cars make sense so far to me: a broad spectrum sampling of the best race cars from various classes to give players the career experience (through time).

But a subset of the members/players are searching for good "match-ups". I think we got some good Ford vs. BMW races on the horizon. Maybe 1 or 2 more brands would make for some incredible JonZ/Halcyon race edits.

Micas
18-07-2012, 19:11
I think the concern is more that the cars that don't particularly fit into the outline will take away production time from the ones that do, which is a legitimate concern, IMHO.

I disagree, and here's why.

SMS has a set routine they use when they make a car. It's a step by step process, and they go through that process with every single car. They won't skip something just because one car is very high profile, and one is a classic car from the 1940s, or whatever. They just don't work that way, and the devs will absolutely not allow shoddy work to be done because their reputation in the industry depends on how their work stands up to scrutiny. If an art manager doesn't like the way somebody modeled something, they'll ask them to re-do or fix it. It doesn't matter what car it is. If Andy doesn't like something, it'll get fixed.

In the entire.. what.. 9 months we've been watching this, has it been any other way? Even once?

The other point is that SMS does not have a big publisher breathing down their necks to get the game released on a deadline or forfeit bonuses and such. It won't be released until Ian says it gets released. If this were July 2013 and the release date was still set for August 2013, then maybe there might be an issue to worry about. Right now, I think we should probably assume that SMS knows what they're doing.

I got to see the M1 series Race at Zeltweg during the 1980 Austrian G.P. weekend. At that time I was stationed at Sembach Air Base in Germany with the USAF [1979-81],and still today I long for those beautiful rolling hills of the Rhinelandphalz region. So seeing the M1 included in pCARS brings back fine memories..:a21:

Great news! Although i was hoping for something like the new M5 and M6, because as far as i know they aren't featured in any PC racing games yet. And also as we are planning on making DTM series in the game, it's odd that there will be no M3 DTM.

Don't get me wrong though, i am quite happy with all these new cars.

Dan Blamey
18-07-2012, 21:08
I think this is going to work out really well.

Before we either had completely race series focused games with no 'casual' cars in them, or complete focus on a big roster of 'casual' cars, with a few race cars thrown in that don't have anything structured around them.

In pCARS, we're going to have a whole bunch of race cars with a proper series focus in the career, then on the side a heap of really fun sports cars to play with online and in (hopefully) custom championships etc.

I don't think a racing game has been made like that before, so this car list is very exciting for me!

It really will be something for everyone.

IMO we'll be fixing what GT5 did wrong - a proper focus on all the racing disciplines and then some other sports cars to play with; not a whole heap of sports cars with a few average events for the racing disciplines.

Great job on the licensing again guys and girls.
I'm sure that after everything was said and done all the individual cars will fall into their place in the career. There is so much stuff going on behind the scenes, that I'm sure that something as important as licensing isn't done by picking random cars from random companies.
What I really like about the BMW announcement is the fact out of 10 cars, 9 are pure racing cars which shows that pCARS is first a racing simulator and after that a track day simulator.
Can't wait to drive every single one of the cars announced, especially the 328 which besides winning Mille Miglia, won it's class in 1939 LeMans (fifth overall).

Codemasters has DTM license.

damn, really? got link?
Thought so? They have F1, some Rally and DTM i thought? For Grid... and as i remember they had the licence for DTM since 2000 until whatever...

But like for DTM you need always two licences, the one from the car company and the one for using the name DTM and the liveries. And i also think, that DTM and also F1 want to have too much money.

Beside that, we got the M3 E30 DTM, and if the sound will be nearly as in real... i don't care about newer cars :D
But this gives a question, maybe answered somewhere, how does SMS do the car sounds? Are this real soudn recordings?

Separate, 2008 and 2011 F1 cars were very different.

Not sure if its been asked, but McLaren have been signing deals with a few different racing sim games lately to help promote their MP4-12C car, and as such, Simraceway for example have been able to get a senna era car and also the 2011 MP4-26.
has any dialogue been opened up with them to look at this? :)

So Suzy how many marriage proposals have you had today HeHe.

Not enough. I'm open to any offers involving Lindt Lindor, opportunities to drive fast cars round circuits or access to unlimited cash so I can indulge in the first two to my heart's content. ;)

Suzy, if you can settle for Ritter Sport instead of Lindt I might get back to you once an Audi and/or Jaguar deal will be announced. Their factory is about 10 mins away from my doorstep... with an RS5 or F-Type, at least. :D

You can get any car to sound like this with straight cut gears. But that M3 sound is irreplicable.

I have a question. Is it the 1940 Bmw 328 Touring Coupe or a 1940 Bmw 328 Kamm Coupe? The image shows a Kamm Coupe but it's written Touring Coupe.

When you upgrade to Senior Manager and with that pay the sub-licensing fee to EA :p

If that's seriously all that it'd take, I'd be happy to throw a few more 1/100th's towards the cost...!

BMW´s have been published in Shift2 Unleashed allready. You guys from SMS have just to put them into pCARS. Right?
That´s what I call bussines making! I´m not sure, wether EA have had rights on this cars!? Maybe the license was only
given for the former game with its title and no more.
You´re doing a great Job! Thx therefore!

I take it from the site that Mark linked above that the 1991 Group A M3 is also the 1991 DTM M3... If thats the case, please, I beg you Suzy and anybody elso who has some influence in this... let the 1991 DTM Audi V8 be part of the licencing agreement! That would make the 10 yr old DTM fanboy FLX in me, that will desperately love these cars forever, make as happy as could possibly be! :a45:

And yes, I know this would be against my own "enough special cars, please focus on cars for the career path now" argument. 10 yr old DTM fanboy FLX can be quite persistent, so I could accept an exception in this case! :p

An old DTM Audi and an old DTM Mercedes, Opel or Alfa Romeo would be the blast of the decade since no game ever put a nearly complete basic car selection of that DTM era into a game.

It's very difficult to choose only 10 cars from a firm like BMW, with so many great cars.
