KartSim – New Development Update
Paul from KartSim has given us an update on the game which owner Zach Griffin expected to be released into open beta early 2012 but was drastically delayed due to some game breaking bugs.
He explains that the game experiences issues affecting the performance of the physics model, which is now in testing after Zach started to look into the cause of the problem. No official release date had been stated but Paul is confident that the Beta will be available this year.
Quick update on what’s happening. (Yes we are still working hard behind the scenes). This last month Zach had unfortunately hit a few barriers in the software he is using to make KartSim. Long story short, there was something affecting the performance of the physics model. In motorsports speak, we were bouncing off the rev limiter in top gear, couldn’t go any faster. The good news is in the last week Zach has made inroads into the causes and as a result we are back to testing as we were before, ironing out the bugs and making a few tweaks before the beta release.
In terms of release date, whilst I am in no way giving an official date, as this is really an unofficial KartSim post, from what I can see I’m confident that the beta will be out this year.
