Thresh's FiringSquad heeft een preview gepost van Nascar Racing 3. Nou is rondjes raggen op zich een niet al te opwindende bezigheid, Nascar is vooral leuk (op TV) vanwege de crashes:
As much as we may love racing simulations, there's always a special place in our hearts for witnessing spectacular, heart-stopping crash scenes and explosions. The crew over at Papyrus realizes this, and has created an entirely new physics model to satisfy our demolition derby needs.
The new, more realistic N3 physics model is being touted as revolutionary in the world of racing sims, and is sure to be the big draw of the game. N2 had a limited, 2D physics model which, while the most realistic model three years ago, is severely limited, especially during crashes.
The crew over at Papyrus started with a clean slate when designing their physics model for N3. They started with a model of a stock car, complete with a full working model of stock car suspension, and then they modeled all the forces that could affect a car out on the racetrack in all three dimensions.
This model should allow for the most realistic racing to date. Collisions will have the potential of sending cars airborne and will make for some spectacular yet heart-stopping crashes. The car's weight transfer from front to rear will be more pronounced than in N2 - letting off the gas too quickly will shift weight to the front, make the car lose traction in the rear and cause a spin. Getting on the throttle hard will shift weight to the rear and reduce your steering response.
