ACC Playercount Round-up: March 2020

I’ve been keeping track of the amount of players playing ACC for a while now, out of personal curiosity. This basically means I’m importing data from both steamdb and steamcharts into my own spreadsheets. This might seem useless (which it probably is) but I add some value in terms of giving context to flat numbers which the sources do not. So lets get on with that. March 2020 March sees...

Video: ACC Short Clip – Outta Nowhere!

JoJo memes are still funny right? Right?! After a CP race on Silverstone I just had to throw this one together. A slight introduction as to what happened, well… I had a Nissan on my left, which meant I had to take the inside line. I tried to outbreak him so I had the exit to myself. However, I slightly overshot it, which meant I bottomed out on the kerb,...

Opinion: are gamepads too easy to handle in Assetto Corsa Competizione?

Disclaimer: I’m not trying to start a flame war, and I do not think gamepad users are lesser in any way. I think this is a genuine question, which I want to pose in order to start a discussion, and hopefully trigger a reaction and/or explanation from physics master Aris. Lately I’ve been seeing more and more people who I consider to be very quick drivers come out and state...

Video: Wrong car, wrong brakes, wrong fuel, wrong everything.

The new CP-server system in Assetto Corsa Competizione has brought a breath of fresh air into the game. Not just in terms of CP-server population (i.e. quantity), but also in terms of racing etiquette (i.e. quality). This has led to some awesome 45/60 minute races, with the featured video being a highlight reel of my most awesome experience yet. Before joining the race, the track was set to ‘random’, which...

ACC How To: Customize your Driver!

EDIT: while there is now an editor, some gloves are still accessible through editing the .json file (click here to jump to that part). However, if you make any change in the editor, you have to re-do the gloves change in the .json. I advise you to change the gloves after you are happy with your driver. EDIT: this way of creating custom driver skins has been broken by v1.3.10,...

ACC livery showcase #04: Yes, we are back with 10 more greats!

Last week, I was unable to write this post due to a mild food poisoning. On the plus side, I broke my personal record of throwing up in a span of 24h, heightening it from 6 to 8 times. That’s why there was no post last week, but this week we’re back – with a vengeance! Today I have a lot of liveries which were sent in through email: we’ve...

ACC livery showcase #03: ten more liveries for you!

Welcome to already the third installment of the ACC livery showcase! Today, I have a lot of nice looking liveries again for you in store. I got one in the mail from Filippo Caneo, with whom I had (coincidentally) an excellent fight on Monza just the day before. Other liveries today include those of my friends Andreas and Peebz. So lets get to it, shall we? WEC Porsche by Filippo...
