Correct the website, there's "projcet" instead of project.

Related press release that has been sent out - and a huge thank you to you guys...

Back in October of 2011 Slightly Mad Studios launched the World of Mass Development platform – a revolutionary new way to develop games that gave players a backstage pass to see them being made on a day to day basis, allowed them to talk to the team directly, and play regular iterations of the game based on their membership.
Now, one year on, we’re pleased to say that both the platform and the first title to be developed using it – Project CARS – are celebrating their first birthday!

Since we launched, the WMD Portal now has over 80,000 members who have contributed a staggering €1.6m. There have been over a quarter of a million posts in the forums, thousands of screenshots taken, and over a hundred trailers made by the passionate community over there. Not to mention the invaluable feedback we’ve received from polls & bug reports, the amazing work people have done creating custom vehicle liveries, the reference material gathered off their own backs for cars and tracks, the fan sites & Facebook groups created, the people and organizations members have put us in contact with, and the ongoing support that we continue to see each and every day.

To the WMD family, the team give you a huge thank you – Project CARS is on target to be the most realistic, beautiful, authentic, and exciting racing game out there and it wouldn’t be possible without you, the drivers.

Wow 1 year already. Well done everyone....I guess this is only half way though and I'm looking forward to the final half; plenty of audio and visual enhancements and a new tyre model.

So much to look forward to

Happy birthday :)

I am here since day two and I was enjoying every day since the very first available build. And I'm still very impressed to see how well and how fast the work on pCARS progresses. Really awesome and I'm very happy to be here, thank you SMS!

Happy birthday to WMD! :)

Why did I sign up on day 1? No idea. I've never been a big PC sim guy and when this was announced I'd no past experience with SMS or their games. It just seemed like something cool to try out and one year later... well... let's just say I can't see myself needing another racing game for a long time.

12-10-2012, 06:54
Great 365 days. Thanks to anyone part of it. Oh, and nice video JonZ.:)

12-10-2012, 07:09
Great video. Happy Birthday to all.

Congratulations SMS and a big thank you for bringing such a unique project to the community! Sometimes mad ideas turn out to be genious. And simply mad ideas are....simply genious ;)

JonZ, that video is bonkers, completely bonkers! Thank you! :a04:

The downside of Project Cars is me spending less time on Shift 2 (just had it for 2 months) and my career is stuck on 35% :confused:

I'm here since 12th, so this is my 1st WMD Birthday today :)

And I still can't believe that my lousy old hardware can cope with this sim so well. SMS - you are actively hurting the PC market by running too good on my hardware :)

Happy birthday then :)
Thanks to WMD and SMS for this amazing project.
Wish you (us) the best. :P

12-10-2012, 08:34
Happy birthday, Guys !

Great video, JonZ ;)

You'll have a "two-more-manager-accounts-present", as soon as I'll have some time to go to the bank :p

Happy birthday, indeed!
Thanks for the ride. Was a pleasure, so far.

12-10-2012, 08:59
Terrific trailer again.

I'm not a terribly emotional guy, but I suspect the release is going to be a massive event. God, I hope it goes well.. and that's without consideration to the finances.
