Sneak preview of what's to come: 1:10 BASHER TRUCK...

Great fun class, aimed to bring new blood into VRC, not for serious racing but just for FUN!

We will convert some off-road tracks to open space bashing areas where you can drive, jump, crash, whatever. Should be fun chasing each other in multiplayer and trying to crash mid air. The basher truck is really easy to drive, the perfect r/c beginner class for VRC.

It could bring new r/c enthousiasts to the VRC platform and they may give one of the racing classes a go as well. We need new blood!

Part 3: Development Virtual RC v3 Physics engine (2000-2005)

I laid out my plans for VRC v3, not knowing anything about what it would take develop a proper game or sim. I just had a vast 30 years of experience in r/c racing itself, and in manufacturing, which was limited mainly to nitro on-road because that is what I had raced myself and was involved in as a manufacturer. With Serpent we had a brief moment in off-road with the Serpent Cobra and Spirit line but that was short lived and there was very little knowledge to go by. The first decision was to focus entirely on on-road starting with 1:8 nitro sportscars and 1:10 200mm nitro sedans.

Chassis physics engine
What I had in mind was to create a real nitro on-road racing r/c experience with realistic looking cars and tracks, and even more important, cars that would feel like real r/c cars. So, 2 things were extremely important, realistic physics and realistic 3D cars and tracks. A physics engine describes with physics, kinematics and vehicle dynamics ... read more

Part 2: Setting up a development team for Virtual RC v3 (2002)

After having promoted our ‘Virtual RC game port adaptor’ together with Lothar’s r/c game I thought it was time to step it up to the next level. I started laying out my plans to Lothar and he seemed receptive to the idea to do a more realistic and serious r/c sim. Had Lothar done his own r/c game all by himself, it was clear at the outset that my ambitions with this new version were a lot more ambitious and would need a bigger team to develop it. In my plans I envisaged properly modeled 3D cars and tracks, and a physics engine to make the cars behave as realistic as possible. And of course, I wanted the new platform to be able to host races for the members, and post the results on a website. So the idea for VRC v3 was born, but it was clear that we would need ‘experts’ in each of these fields.

Game architecture
Lothar had already done his own game and had developed skills and some expertise to develop a proper game architecture and graphica... read more
