The fan-built Assetto Corsa promotes better rain effects than the GT7

Two months ago I remember Driving Club, a somewhat overlooked racing game for the PlayStation 4 known for its massive atmospheric effects. Weather effects that I believe have yet to be surpassed by any competitive racer, even on newer, more powerful hardware. It includes Forza Horizon 5 And the Grand Touring 7.

What I didn’t know was that Society always loyal to Racing trima simulator originally released in 2014 on PC that has improved the game so much that it may actually outperform it. Driveclub It rains in a few key areas – and it sure does Forza And the GT Out of the water, no pun intended. This is how rain should look in modern racing games, and yet nothing really comes close.

what are you watching It is the latest version of Shotoku Revival Project Advanced fan Racing trim A mod in honor of the golden age of Japanese street racing, featuring a replica of the famous Metropolitan Expressway in Tokyo. It’s a place that has been mostly overlooked in the racing genre since Tokyo Extreme Racer Privilege from early to mid-terms, and I never understood why. A lot of people seem to want a game like this, yet it took volunteers to make it a reality.

That’s part of the reason the video above is so neat, but the other is the rain. and credit to who – which The contribution goes to a developer named Ilja Jusupov, aka x4fab, who has spent years developing custom shader patches for Racing trim according to whom Patreon.

Gusupov’s work is something to watch. The dissimilar droplets collect and collectively move across the windshield; They sway, merge together and sway left and right, reversing the direction of the vehicle’s movement. The wipers work together to move all the fluid over and over, just like in a real car, leaving dry streaks behind as it swings. I know it all sounds unremarkable in the text, but the second you see it in action, you realize that this level of detail simply isn’t noticed in other racing games. Games developed by Actual companies. Take, for example, my tech lover GT7For example:

This is pathetic, isn’t it? In fairness, there are several possible reasons for this. Racing trim It is a computer game of course – at its core and old or old A PC game of the time – where the graphic quality of certain devices is not restricted. Being an eight-year-old nickname, Racing trim Computers aren’t particularly paying these days, which allows developers to realize the beautiful effects we’re seeing.

The time of day also appears to be fixed in the Shutoko clip, which reduces the load on the devices. GT7’s Rain doesn’t look half good, but GT7’s Lighting, sky and cloud cover are changeable, as it were Driveclub. Rest assured though – there Racing trim Moderates tend to have this problem too, like Peter Boysresponsible for the dynamic atmospheric system Sol.

The results here are not perfect. That’s all freelance developer work that’s limited in time and resources, obviously. You’ll notice in the video that the moment the player’s car passes under an overpass, water stops collecting on the glass and the wipers pause in place. It’s not an enclosed tunnel, so there’s still some indirect spray flying around. But again, you have to remember that this is a game that you did not start with any Weather effects to talk about in 2014. Even if Racing trim They never looked so good.

The teachers literally sew new parts of the game by Konos Simolazione, corsa trim The original developer, I never dreamed of it before. And they still manage to make the new third-place runners feel shame.
