Near term stuff are things that we’re working on or we plan to do shortly
This is a tricky stuff: we’ve completely rewrote the input management to make gRally more versatile to
every controller the user has;
unfortunately this took us more time than expected: but we’re on the right way to fix definitively
the controller issues.
We encourage everyone to report controller bugs, it’s the only way for us to “test” the different hardware.
Dynamic tyre models
This is a cool thing: with this feature the 3d tyre and texturizing is done automatically: the user will be able to choose a different rim, different rim color, different caliper color and the core do everything. Finally we’ll have a different tyre shape when we choose the tyre for the stage. There is also the opportunity to create a custom rim if the car needs it.
New Engine physics
With the latest gCarEditor release we started to code the Turbo and 4x4.. we’re working to make it ‘definitive’.
Mid term stuff are things that we’re plan to do but not immediately
We’re working on a completely new car, a modern design inspired (as usual) to a 70’s great rally car: this car will be 4wd with a turbo engine, to let the people to play with the new physicsengine.
In the pre-steam release we worked on the rain feature, but we preferred to release it when is 100% done, with the aquaplanning and different damp/wet zones.
We decided to improve the online side using Steam to manage the game servers, so each driver will be able to create and manage online rallies and championships.
We want to be aligned with the Unity releases and this step should improve the framerate and the graphics.
gRally will manage the surface usage in 2 ways, graphics and physics: this will be useful for live rallies where the grip and the behaviour of the car into certain stage depends by the starting road position.
UI for VR
At the moment gRally is shipped with a working VR management, but the VR is basic. With this new step you can interact with the UI
The stage where gRally runs its first kilometers. It’s entered now the refreshing mode due to the sim and graphic engine developments.
We’ll use FMOD to manage all the sounds in game, this will be a great step for the car modders, to create great audio behaviour especially for the car engine.
Long term stuff are things that we wish do but we don’t know when
Live rally championship
The main goal of gRally is the online rallies and championships, to recreate the incredible fun of the WIRC rally championships on the past years: to complete this great milestone the way is long: we need more cars and stages and some live test rallies to make the server stuff unbreakable.
Rigged driver and codriver
At the moment the driver and the codriver are static and must be included in the car model.. Next step is make a rigged driver that is in the engine.
This section is to track all the stuff made, to link with the released build
