How to take better screenshots in Assetto Corsa Competizione (ACC)

Taking screenshots in Assetto Corsa Competizione (ACC) is a rabbit hole. You can take a simple screenshot, or you can create a work of art. However, as with most things in ACC, it is not explained in the game itself. Leading many to miss out on the more intricate workings of the intelligent systems created by the developers. Well, fear not, as I will dive into this rabbit hole for you, so you too can create works of art! In this guide, you’ll find a number of options from which...

Williams BMW FW26 – ACC Custom Livery

Are you, like me, a 90s kid who grew up watching F1 in the late 90s and 00s? Then you must have fond memories of the Williams-BMW partnership and the liveries it brought forth. And the one which arguable sticks out the most, would be the ill-fated Williams FW26, a.k.a. “the Walrus”, which was entered into the 2004 Formula 1 Championship. The car featured a unique, tusk-like nose. Unfortunately for Williams and its drivers, Ralf Schumacher and Juan Pablo Montoya, the concept proved unsuccessful. Two-thirds into the season, the team...

ACC player counts in review: July 2022

July. Traditionally, the month with one of the lowest player activity of the year for Assetto Corsa Competizione (ACC). Well, at least in 2021. In 2020, it was August – due to the release of the GT4 DLC in July 2020 temporarily boosting player activity. And now, at the tail end of June, we received the American Track Pack. Since it is now August 1st, we can now determine what the impact of said DLC has been on player activity. In this series of articles – I’ve been doing this...

Honda RA106 – ACC Custom Livery

Are you, like me, a 90s kid who grew up watching F1 in the late 90s and 00s? Then you must have fond memories of the BAR/Honda team. The team got its start in F1 as BAR, by acquiring the Tyrell team. Later, when cigarette advertising was starting to get banned at more and more venues, Honda swooped in and took over ownership of the team. Only to pull out in 2009, and winning the WDC and WCC under the Brawn F1 banner. Through all of this, the team has...

Porsche 963 LMDh – ACC Custom Livery

Recently, Porsche announced it’s entry back into prototype endurance racing with the uncovering of the Porsche 963 LMDh. A stunning car, with a stunning livery. So stunning, I just had to recreate it in Assetto Corsa Competizione (ACC). The car in the showcase video above is the result. I took some liberties with certain elements of the original design, as the car upon which the livery is painted far from matches the shape of the GT3 car. I am confident, however, that I recreated a spiritual sister to the 963...

ACC player counts in review: June 2022

Back in March, we received the Challengers DLC for Assetto Corsa Competizione (ACC). This largely affected April’s numbers. So much so, that even May was still riding its coattails(and that of a free weekend). I expected the numbers for June to drop to somewhere around 4500 average peak concurrently as Summer is closing in. As we’ve seen in the past few years, June historically sees a steep decline in player activity: 8.5% in 2020 and 11.4% in 2021. Will June 2022 show a similar drop? How far was I off...

Audi ABT e-tron FE 07 Evo II – ACC Custom Livery

Back in June 2021 I made a livery based on the Audi ABT e-tron FE07 Formula E car as an entry to my ACC x FE custom livery series. It was, and still is, my favourite livery to have worked on – based on the Audi R8 LMS GT3 Evo In February, Kunos released a new DLC pack, the Challengers DLC. One of the cars in that pack was the “Evo II” version of the Audi R8 LMS GT3. Last week, I received a request on Racedepartment to see if...

ACC player counts in review: May 2022

Boosted by the release of the Challengers DLC, last month saw Assetto Corsa Competizione (ACC) reach a lot of new records in terms of player activity. I expected player counts for this month, May 2022, to drop. Now that the month is over and we have safely reached June, it is time to look back. Did the player counts drop? And if so, by how much? Read on to find out! In this series of articles – I’ve been doing this since March 2020 – I analyze the playercounts from...

Porsche Mission R Cup – ACC Custom Livery Pack

Earlier this year, I made a livery based on the Porsche Mission R Concept car. Since then, Kunos released a new DLC pack for Assetto Corsa Competizione (ACC), containing the new 992 GT3 Cup car. I saw this as a prime opportunity to recreate the Mission R livery I made for the regular GT3 car for this new cup car. With a twist. I wouldn’t just make the one livery. No. I wanted to make a whole field of cars. A cup, if you will. Not only does this livery...

ACC player counts in review: April 2022

In last month’s Player Count in Review, we saw what the Challengers DLC meant for the player counts in the short term. However, what are the long-term effects of the DLC release? Well, now that April is over, it is time to dive into the numbers. Do you want to know how it influenced the player statistics of Assetto Corsa Competizione (ACC)? Have there been new records set? Read on to find out! In this series of articles – I’ve been doing this since March 2020 – I analyze the...
