Kicking off with the available-to-all-members Build 510, all future development updates for the Project CARS closed beta will now be released on Steam.
To ensure the transition to the network is as smooth and as effective as possible, Slightly Mad Studios has stated all the necessary details on this post in the WMD Portal forums.
The game development studio also claims the move to Steam will allow an easier and more efficient implementation of some new community-related features as the beta progresses.
As with any Project CARS update, Build 510 comes with a whole raft of improvements, which go as follows:
Build 510 (5/7/13, Junior Member+)
* Clear6 changed to new experimental clear condition that is more tropical in feel with darker saturated blue sky and heavier blue haze in daytime and a bright intense sun. Tone mapping effect isnt working great in this setting atm as Rob and I are still looking into that. Also has some banding on the new skies
* Eifelwald: New export
* BMW Z4 GT3: Adjusted setup for new tires. Brake heating/cooling/wear all tuned
* Pagani Zonda R: New setup for new tires
* BMW M3 GT4: New setup for new tires
