Status update

As stated on www.motorsport-sim.org :

Quick update on Motorsport status: with the knowledge and experience gained through these first years of Motorsport, we're planning a rewrite of the whole simulation from scratch. Thus we skip Evolution 2, and jump directly to Evolution 3, which becomes the brand new version.

The main reasons for this rewrite is to fix some stability issues, to choose more appropriate 3rd party libraries, and to rethink the whole concept of Motorsport (which becomes a library, instead of a stand-alone executable, amongst other things).

This website will get replaced as soon as possible. Meanwhile, all the work is being done at motorsport.stenyak.com. If you want to contribute to the discussion, head to the "Tasks" section, and take a look at the items, specially those labelled as "design" and "research".

It means that Motorsport becomes usable by third party developers: it's now divided in the "core" and the "controllers".

Here you have some further explanations:

For the non software types, that means you'll still be able grab a binary that will run on your Windows box but you'll be able to make a monster truck game built using the Motorsport libraries or you can create a Motorsport Legends type game as well.

Correct me if I'm wrong here Stenyak

You're absolutely right. We will provide the physics simulation as a separate package of the "game" simulation. That way, anyone can take the physics and do whatever they want with it: a dedicated no-graphics server, a Pro Race Driver style career game, a GPL sim, a massively multiplayer online racing game, a driving license test simulator, a 4x4 trials sim...

We will still be providing a default "game" package to use with the Motorsport core, which will hopefully provide all the necessary things to enjoy Motorsport as a regular sim, like most of us racesimmers are used to.

Actually my biggest hope from Motorsport is that it will be the sim that lets me get rid of Windows at last... I've been using Ubuntu for two years now and I only boot to Windows when I want to drive.
IIRC Motorsport is cross-platform, right?
Thanks for the extra info, Kirk and Stenyak.

Yes, it's cross-platform. I didn't even touch windows when developing the old versions of Motorsport (some other people made the ports to windows, and some to macos).

The old website has been finally migrated to the new software. We have discarded some old news items, but the rest should still be there.
