Hello fellow racers and wreckers!

We are working on the next update like there is no tomorrow. In fact, this new update is by far the largest one we have ever created. We are going to release it before Christmas, and we are more than happy to share with you that the update will contain:
Stay tuned for more info on this huge update!

OOOOOOOOOOOooo Shit! (Good!)!
By release, you mean the patch or the full game as a release version?

So, full release is scheduled for Q1 2018?
Title: Re: Big Update Coming Before Christmas!
Post by: Janne Suur-Näkki on December 05, 2017, 09:10:07 PM
This will be the first major update leading to the final release early in 2018.

This way we will have a little bit of more time to polish and dial in final tweaks based on the feedback we get from you guys + of course the rest of the players.

Smart desision, totally agree with that solution. Can you hint about numbers of new cars / tracks?
Title: Re: Big Update Coming Before Christmas!
Post by: Janne Suur-Näkki on December 05, 2017, 09:18:25 PM
Condering the number of cars we have now I'd say the number is significant.

For tracks, we're looking at having all the tracks at a pretty polished shape by the update + some new routes.

We're still working on effects for the mechanical damage + bits but it should be in a presentable state soon.

Paintwork customization will allow the player to choose from a number of liveries and change the colors themselves, multiplayer is of course supported.

You didn't mention VR : is it in the "And a lot more" dot ? Or is it a no go ? (is there even a definitive answer ? :p)

Well these are my guesses for three of them:

3. is the Volvo (240 if I remember right?) that was teased here http://www.wreckfestgame.com/game-music-contest-for-wreckfest/ (http://www.wreckfestgame.com/game-music-contest-for-wreckfest/)
5. is likely Datsun 240Z
7. I think is the Saab 96 that was in the Kickstarter video http://www.igcd.net/images/059/128.jpg (http://www.igcd.net/images/059/128.jpg)

Number 3 looks like the already revealed Volvo 240 Estate;
Number 4 could be a Plymouth, maybe;
I see hints of a Volkswagen SP2 (http://cars.definitivelist.com/wp-content/uploads/volkswagen/sp2/volkswagen-sp2.jpg) in number 5;
Number 6 looks like that atrocious 80's Dodge Challenger;
Number 7 reminds me of those 50's Jags that race at the Goodwood Revival but I'm almost sure it's not that.

Post by: FalconXY on December 06, 2017, 12:41:19 AM
Well there should be VR mode in such a new game.  :o

If not please implement "mouse look (use the mouse to look around)" so we can use that for VorpX head tracking. Thanks.   :D

As always:
new cars, final tracks... could all be made by modders.


WHERE ARE THE NEW GAME MODES ?

Number 1 is a G-body. Number 3 is a Volvo 240 Estate, number 5 is a Nissan 240Z, and number 7 is the Saab-Escort hybrid we saw a long time ago I think.

Looking great! Can't wait to play it! WF is deffinetly on my first place when it comes to upcoming games in early 2018  :P
I'm so glad to see "improved clutch" on the list of the features it was just so anoying sometimes when cornering and my gear is still in fifth gear even if I'm going less then 30 km/h
Also seeing all those well made, detailed environmental assets and more polished tracks... I'm kind of curious if the performance will stay the same or can we expect less fps? (I can get like 40-50 fps right now on medium).

Also word on car suggestions:

5 looks very like datsun  ;)

Sorry if this has been said before, but have you decided if there will be a used parts section in the game (the classifieds)? One of our backer rewards was to have our name in the classifieds, so I hope this wasn't cut.

I have been wondering about the Backer Car, there hasn't been any mention of it for quite a while from BugBear. Probably not in Beta but what is the status of the car? Can we vote for the car or will BugBear decide for us?

I always thought we would not see the backer car no sooner than when Wreckfest reach beta stage.

So we still have a bit of wait and it possible we may have to wait until final version release before we see the backer car.

We do have a thread discussing what we might think the backer car will be:

What do YOU want the backer car to be? (http://community.bugbeargames.com/index.php/topic,2948.0.html)

Ya I be curious if this will be there in career mode, the classifieds. This was one of the reasons I paid the $70 for my first copy of NCG\Wreckfest back in September 2013. To see Purple44 in the classified section selling badly worn, cheap car parts. :P

Post by: Zebulon55 on December 06, 2017, 10:46:03 AM
Number 1 is definitely a second generation Chevy Monte Carlo, and I agree that 5 is a Datsun.

I'm gonna agree with Daystar and say 8 is a 1975 Chevy El Camino.

I first thought maybe number 8 had the roofline/quarter window of a first generation Olds Toronado, which with a V8 motor and front wheel drive would be awesome in Wreckfest, but the rear wheel is set back too far for a Toro. Gotta be an El Camino, for Real. (subtle California joke/reference there - lol)

Also.. would like to see some kind of small teaser/trailer before this update gets out it could also help to get more attention and it could also help to change a lot of negative reviews to positive.

Nice, but I hope the mechanical damage thing will not reduce the fun of crashing. If it's going to "punish the player's car for contacts and crashes", then I'm afraid it could. :/ That would feel counter-intuitive for this game, at least for me. I hope it's optional or adjustable in vanilla game without mods.

Now that there's a little bit more dev time - time to implement some more fun gamemodes. :D

Maybe, hopefully, there's possibility for enabling and disabling mechanical damage like in flatout 2. it was something like full, wheels only and none, right?

Oh, the unmitigated fun of a flat tire or bent pitman arm!  ::)
The jubilation of being stuck in first gear for half the race.  :)
Because there will be no greater joy this Christmas than limping your realisticly damaged car around the track.  :D

I guess you could just concentrate on being a slowly creeping mobile hazard for the good drivers who didn't f@(# up their car, and when it really starts to suck, you can park that wreck in a bottleneck or blind corner and retire. Then go into spectate and put the camera someplace where you can watch others have fun until they hit your wreck and become a slowly creeping mobile hazard.  :P

There really should be some server-side option for a driving model damage multiplier. Surely Bugbear can agree to this.  8)

The classifieds is about the only benefit of being a 50 or 70 dollar supporter that would be unlikely to get shared among the community. The backer car, how long until that's out there for everybody's free use? The soundtrack? That'll probably get shared to anyone wanting it right away.

Anyway, I paid at the $50 level and I don't really care about the backer items. I'm just looking forward to the full game and full servers!  8)

Aww, still don't see a 4.5k+lb boat to romp around in. Are we going to see damage be more weight+speed based or just gpig to keep speed based and whoever hits faster does more damage? I think it's jist a lil cheesy to do the latter but it is what it is. Like in fouc, you had to be doing 60+mph to even do damage to the "truck."

I just think that there's not much point in having a heavy car if it's not going to deal more damage at lower speeds. Or not take ANY damage from a light ass car at 20mph or less.

Also, let's not see progressive engine damage unless you're adding thermal or valvetrain simulation. Kind of dumb to imagine that an engine eill lose power progresdively if the block is getting damaged. If the block breaks,  it will only run til it's out of oil or she could just insta-detonate I suppose. Idk

Post by: sam223 on December 07, 2017, 03:11:35 PM
Some interesting guesses. I agree with most and think 4) is a jaguar XJS maybe?
Im still looking forward to mechanical damage the most. Making the most of your battered car, and crabbing/limping to the end is part and parcel of banger racing.

Maybe it wont be so much engine damage/gearbox and the like,slowing you down.But rather damaging suspension legs/steering arms/wishbones. Meaning that when you bend that wheel you will get handling changes in caster,camber,toe and tracking. So you'll get crabbing cars,and cars that pull to one side more than the other etc.

Was glad to read this on Steam the other day and can't wait to try it out. Between Wreckfest and Kingdom Come : Deliverance it looks like a great start to 2018 for me.

The mechanical damage aspect is one of the reasons that pulled me into buying this game early on only second to the derby aspect of the game. Without it you might as well go buy Flatout 4. LOL! I am ready for some good derbies with limping cars to pound on instead of everyone going 100 mph. I hope knocking wheels off has also made a return.

Post by: Vixtro on December 07, 2017, 07:40:28 PM
What we REALLY need:

NETCODE FIXED!

Seriously, the biggest problem with the game at the moment is the netcode, it seriously needs sorting so we can host 24 player servers with little to no problems.

IN-SERVER MARKETPLACE!

This was a pre-existing feature that for some reason, since the THQ update, has been removed, so we have to leave a server to buy a car and/or change its parts. This seriously needs to return, or at least letting us change the parts of a car we already own in the server.

LAPS!

It would be great if we could select any number of laps we wanted, after 10 laps, laps go up in increments of 5, so for those of us who race in leagues and like to set a specific number of laps for something like a rolling start, we cannot select 16 or 21 laps etc. which would be ideal for us. I'm sure this is a very simple fix!

MOST DAMAGE AND MOST TAKEDOWNS AWARD AFTER RACE!

Again, another pre-existing feature that was removed in the THQ update. Why? This was a pretty cool feature to know who dealt the most damage and who got the most takedowns, this is a must return feature!

OPTIONAL HEALTH BARS!

Letting the host have the option to force off/on health bars would be a great feature, helps add a little immersion and the added fun factor of not knowing for sure how damaged your opponents are.

Just a few things I can think of right now off the top of head, otherwise anything else is just being really nitpicky...

^ What Vixtro said above ^

And please Bugbear, if you are reading this thread still, please please bring back car infos/stats!!

Post by: CFodder on December 08, 2017, 05:13:54 AM
So much agree with Vixtro's posts especially with regards to the Netcode ... would be even nicer if they could bring out a linux version of the ded server but I would settle for fixing the existing :).

Post by: Mopower on December 08, 2017, 05:32:19 AM
I like the bit about optional HOST based health bars on/off. (Would prefer them all to be off personally)

But again. Not very fair goinf into a server as odd man out whem they know exactly what they need to do to take ypu down.
Title: Re: Big Update Coming Before Christmas!
Post by: Frisker on December 08, 2017, 01:27:04 PM
I never liked the healthbars from day one. If you ask me they could be removed completely.

Yeah, looking good!
Notice "SLAM! +50xp"
And new life indicator which shows how much destruction happened (red indicator next to the player tag above the car)

<EDIT3: Here was same video what BB posted on Twitter but on .gif>

EDIT: Oh, and...

We are working on the next update like there is no tomorrow. In fact, this new update is by far the largest one we have ever created. We are going to release it before Christmas, --

Only two full weeks before holidays! .. so..  I'm guessing next update will come next Thursday... right?  :P

Previous updates came out on Thursdays and looks like your next update is almost ready (last steamdb history change five days ago, and another nine days ago (https://steamdb.info/app/228380/history/)).
Also, if there's bugs or stuff what you guys need to fix, you have one week fixing time before the holiday weekend (23.-24.12.)

Just guessing  ;D

I have ringed around two things, the first is a car. Look at it's tail, is that something which is already in game or is it a new model? Ring two, the tail of that car, is that the sedan we have now or a new model as well?

Yeah, that too. Too bad Bugbear maybe can't use the old flatout character names since it isn't their IP anymore

Scratch that, not being able to use the names with no connection to the orignal character sounds just weird. Surely you can't copyright protect a name?

That bent up white car from the video might be #5 from the new cars preview picture.

I don't like health bars at all. It's just - find car with the smallest amount of health and crash it. Not a lot of strategy needed for derby/racing. Maybe if you can see health bar only after you hit someone, like it was in flatout, where you could see only health bar of nearest opponent.

Also would be awesome if instead of getting your car on fire after it's destroyed - to make it just smoking from engine and maybe if you're lucky you can get your car back running for a litle bit longer. With feature like trying to get your car back on the track even after it's destroyed, you can get really awesome moments while racing. Just imagine that you already survived a lot of laps and you're just like "cmon just survive these last laps" and you have to start your engine in almost every corner because your car is almost dead  ;D

> Next update will be ~1.14GiB sized

1GB more than previous version. Might be wrong too, as some things might have shrinked or other things might be hidden under the encryption / under other branches which will be merged together (if you know GIThub way of working regarding timelines / workflow).

With 5+ new cars coming and even more assets, we would need to download waaay more than 1.1gb. Prepare for the hype overload during download!

Title: Re: Big Update Coming Before Christmas!
Post by: Finsku on December 13, 2017, 04:12:57 PM
But about the branch "bbtest", did they used it before?
SteamDB shows only 2 month old branches and I can't find more information about "bbtest" branch.

That's why I was thinking they created new branch (or used old testing branch) and moved next update's files (1.14GiB) from develope branches ("theag" and "developer") that testers can test game and report bugs.
(another) Wild guess. "theag" means "the actual game", which is closer to published release and stuff from developer branch goes to theag for testing?

... damn I need to stop guessing

Finally have a new keyboard after typing via touchpad and on screen keyboard for the last couple months.... I would like to express that the game is decent but it still feels laggy in certain parts on tracks such as the very last turn on T2 as you're going for the home straight. I don't believe that it's my connection though it was happening online. for 10 laps that was the only spot that I noticed it every single lap though. T1 runs pretty choppy for me for the most part. I'm not sure if the game isn't optimized for my PC or if I need to update my drivers. Idk

The takedown system is still kinda wonky. I feel like there are a lot of takedowns that I should have had cuz I had last hit on, but instead I get nothing or just an assist. Maybe it's time to do away with the deathmatch if ya'll can't get the takedown system to work properly.

When is last team standing derbying coming?

Will we ever get to see the smaller 2-4 man teams and be able to have 6 or more teams in one lobby? I would like to see it instead of 10 man teams... Way too packed in a derby track if you have that many on one team IMO.

It was nice that google translate worked well so there was no need to translate everything myself:

- 8 new cars
- First cars with front wheel drive
- 2 championships; about 5-6 hours of playtime
- Music is finally in the game (directly from the community, in cooperation with Audiodraft)
- First version of the rival system: each race can produce a personal rival (marked as 'rival'); earn more points by confronting your rival directly
- Individual color paints inserted
- First version of the single-component damage system implemented
- Improved and revised UI and HUD
- Own 'reset button' added
- Improved handling of all cars in the game
- Improved wall collision model
- Vehicle collision model improved
- 3 difficulty modes implemented
- General AI improvements
- Engine noise of 4- and 6-cylinder cars improved
- First version of the vehicle tuning system implemented

That damage system sounds interesting and feels like we could get some cool things with it!

Nice changelog, about time :D been long enough since last update. Funny that there's not one word about tracks... new ones, routes, new variants or how many, etc. I guess we will know soon enough... and I mean the real 'soon' ;)

Somebody I know was in contact with JannesBB a while ago & he said they were still testing and it would be a few hours. That was a few hours ago. So lets hope all is going well!

Some late-minute issues meant that we had to disable lawnmower and Sprint Cup temporarily pending further investigation.

We'll also maintain battle stations next week and fix any significant issues that are found (we never catch them all anyway).

If you need to postpone the update its better if its not 100% good atm, I dont mind it but will have an eye open for bugs and report them if you update it today =)

Nope, not about VR :) We're still on the fence regarding it.

Oh come, you cant tell me none of you tried something like Dirt Rally in VR, and didn't think "damn, we need this in our game". I have a Rift, and as anyone with a Rift or Vive would tell you, once you try VR racing, there's no going back. Not to mention how unique it would be with this game, as none of the VR supported racers have soft body physics. Just imagine after a big crash you go forward like nothing happened, then you look sideways and literally half the car is missing :D

I'm sure it's a challenge and a big part of that challenge is because of said soft body physics, and the VR market is small, so it's a questionable investment. However, the sim racing market is a niche one to begin with, and a good chunk of those people already have an HMD, and I guarantee you, most of those people see no VR support, they are going to skip purchase.

I agree, but I'm sure running Wreckfest smoothly at 1200p and 90fps would be an extremely tough challenge.
