Really Good Mods

Postby ajokay » 12 Feb 2015, 08:57

A place to post really good mods for Assetto Corsa so we can build up a nice collection for our copies of Assetto Corsa. These mods should be considered must haves. Quality content ideally built from the ground up specifically for Assetto Corsa, not ported from an older game.

An image/video of the mod in action and a link to the download page (no direct links) much appreciated.

Really like this idea Alex as I know I'm already behind with some of the mods many of you have already installed. I guess the only thing I can think of to add to this is maybe a table of some kind to avoid duplicates and for easier quick grab of the mod. I have gone through the other forum and once its 2 or 3 pages in with posts finding the links gets annoying. Also its hard to determine if its a "hey found this mod" or "You have to get this mod link".

As an example I posted the following link a while ago. Mods Mods and more Mods but to even find it in the forum now takes some searching. It is also not a mod itself but there are lots of mods on the page and since it appears they run a league most should be tested.

So then here are two other posts for you to evaluate Alex:

Tired of the lights on your wheel not working in AC, download FANALEDS. It has a lot of settings I haven't even touched yet but now my lights work. (Tested Works)

Want to know if you can move left or right but can't see your blind spot. Download the Spotters Mod (Have NOT tested this myself yet)

So once again i've tried a couple of mods and once again i absolutely adore them! Both are from he upcoming TUSCC mod that is still in development so presumably these cars are not fully finished.

Download - http://acusccmod.weebly.com/blog/ier-ca ... 1-released

Oreca FLM09 LMPC

It's possibly the best mod i have driven, or indeed even best car I've driven in the game overall. It just feels so damn realistic. The way the car skips over the kerbs and pulls out of the corners. It's exactly the same as it looks on TV. The outside of the car looks weirdly smooth, but I presume that's a result of it not being fully complete, however the interior is absolutely beautifully rendered. It's probably the most fun and drivable car i've ever driven.

Image
Image
Image

Corvette Daytona Prototype

This is on par with the Oreca. Extremely drivable despite the performance difference, really nice physics, but this time it looks like the model is finished as it's so well detailed. At the bottom of Eau Rouge, you can feel and hear the car scrape along the ground. That in itself feels fantastic. And once again the interior has glorious detail.

Image
Image
Image


I sing the same praises with every mod that i try but this one is genuinely the most fun so far. I can envisage some fantastic races in these and i absolutely cannot wait for the full mod.

Mazda 979

What better way to spend this fine Christmas eve than by trying a couple of mods. The first being the Mazda 787. It's... fan...tastic!. It may be not quite as exciting as the 98t but it's still provides that huge rush around Spa, with the same heart stopping moment trying to push it flat up Eau Rouge. To add to that, it's beautifully detailed and finished and to throw even more into the bucket, Kunos are teasing a Sauber C9 that will be released as an in game car. Group C races are coming ;)

Seat Leon EuroCup

The second car i tried was the Seat Leon Eurocup. I will say it is unbelievably well detailed. It's absolutely exquisite even. The only problem is, it's so dull to drive. It's extremely under powered and the handling is like it's on rails with really really good brakes. That just makes for a pretty dull drive to be honest, although maybe my feelings were skewed by driving the above car first ;) I'd say download it anyway as the ease of driving it may make for some fun races.

A car and a track from me:

Image
Click the picture.

GP2 2014

Simply glorious! The GP2 cars are a real challenge to drive but simply amazing in medium and high speed corners. Once you get your head around the power and have the confidence to push, there's little more rewarding in Assetto Corsa and that's really saying something!

Donington Park
A proper old-school track with unforgiving grass and gravel run-off, but enough space to not be too punishing. It's Donington, and a really good version of it (if you ignore the textures at the grass verge).

That donington park circuit is certainly incredibly good. The guy has built it from scratch for Assetto Corsa and has included both the GP and modern national layouts (with the final chicane further from the start line)

A mod that I've been having an awful lot of fun with is the Ginetta G55 Supercup. Whilst still not entirely finished (see the link for details), it feels great to drive, and looks properly authentic on the British tracks. Would be great for a special event one day.

Formula Master 2009

I'm sure a few of you have seen this one floating around recently. It's a semi-custom build for Assetto Corsa. They said that the production of it was originally for rFactor 2, however they switched to Assetto Corsa during the development.

The only information i can find about the series is that they obviously used our IMFR car, the Tatuus N.T07, and there is no suggestion that changed during the series life. Clearly this isn't exactly the same as the one we raced so It would appear that this is the same chassis with a slightly updated aero package.

The mod looks really really well made. It's got all the details you would see in a base car in the game and the sound is just as good, although if you press the horn button you hear "Box this lap, box this lap. Confirm." Obscure.

How does it drive? It's certainly drivable. You can tell they've put time and effort into getting the physics right on this car. You only have to look at it to tell it's got some rather good aero, and that's true in game. At high speed, this car is super smooth and easy to drive. When you get to slow speed corners though, all that grip is gone and the mechanical grip is rather poor making it easy to lose control at slow speeds. However, once you get used to that grip change and driving it smoothly, it's very racey. Obviously more grunt than the Formula Abarth but not hideously undrivable like the F1 mod.

Zakspeed Mk.II Escort

I've been playing around with the legendary Group 5 Zakspeed Escort for an hour or so and it's really, really good. It comes in two states of tune - naturally aspirated and turbocharged.

Naturally aspirated it has about 280bhp and is very easy to drive, lots of grip, lots of traction and very neutral handling. If you don't get the blips on the downchanges right it gets a little squirrely under braking, but you can carry a lot of speed through the corners. It's fun, but it feels a little slow.

I then tried the full fat, as-it-should-be turbocharged version (on full boost) and my god, is this thing amazing. Now with about 440bhp, the handling characteristics are the same, but with the added challenge of trying to correctly judge the boost coming in under acceleration (around 7,500 rpm). Time the throttle right and you come out of a corner with a tiny bit of oversteer, engine screaming and you get launched down the next straight. It's a fantastic feeling. With all that extra speed braking becomes more challenging, and you get the best from it by squaring off the corners a touch.

The peak performance of the turbocharged car is on a real knife egde and nailing it is very satisfying, but drop either side of that limit and it's surprisingly controllable, or if the revs drop too low, just a bit slow. There's a nice selection of period liveries for it, and the sound is wonderful, with plenty of bangs and crackles on the overrun. I highly reccommend it, the driving experience feels a lot more modern than I had anticipated.

I thought i'd try and find as many GT3 cars as I could to flesh out my GT3 races.

Audi R8 LMS Ultra GT3

Link: http://thesimreview.blogspot.co.uk/2014 ... a-mod.html

https://vine.co/v/O9qwnpjYmje

This one is a conversion but I have no idea where it's from. Wherever it is, it's a very good model, to the point that i didn't even realize until i read the description. It could be an in game car it's that good looking. The physics seem to have been remodeled by a modding team and it all makes for a very good car. Handling wise, it's very planted. It's got a lot of grip and that makes it so very fun to drive. Also, the sound is fantastic, as per the vine link above. Definitely one to download!

Camaro GT3

As far as I can tell, this one is a ground up build for Assetto Corsa.

I don't know what more there is to say about the model than, it's spot on. Really high quality, great detail and another one that you can't tell is a mod. The sound is once again fantastic. I think Kunos must provide modders with a glorious way of making audio as most mods have great sound.

Handling wise, you can tell it's a muscle car and not really a GT3. Huge power and huge torque = powerslide! This certainly is a slippery car but that's half the fun. If you don't want to win a race but have great fun whilst losing, this is the car for you.

Not sure how old your pc is but if you post the specs may be able to get rid of your lag so you can go online. Have a look here at my settings and see if it can help you out. AC will play really nice on older PC's with a little bit of give and take.

Banter Bus

Mod Link: http://acmods.net/cars/bus/


Ok, it's not called Banter Bus, but it's a bus none the less. It's a bus. What more can I say. It's suprisingly well detailed. They have managed to capture the dreadfulness of a bus interior quite well i think.

There is no internal engine noise for some reason, however it is in external views. It handles stupendously well with it's hilarious amount of steering lock and top speed of about 80, and that's after 14 seconds in a straight line, which makes it super raceable, aided in the fact it has brakes that are better than an F1 car. Fabulous machine. Who needs a Ginetta when you've got this?

McLaren MP4-13

Mod: http://www.virtuasimulazioni.com/mclare ... tto-corsa/

I was excited the moment i saw this was getting made and it has not disappointed. It's far from an easy car to drive. You have to really push to keep the tyres up to temperature. If you don't push, you fall off the track, if you push too hard, you spin out. It's quite the balancing act. It also feels as you would expect. The steering is extremely light and responsive and you can feel every single bump in the road, bumps you wouldn't even know were there in other cars. The entry to Stowe, for example, throws this car around and rocks it back and forth with the uneven surface but you just don't get that in other cars. Also, just look at it. It's so ridiculously well made that Kunos might as well just add it to their next DLC pack.

The same team are also working on the Ferrari from the same year, as well as the Formula Renault 3.5, so it would appear that there will be fine range of open wheelers available to Assetto Corsa in the near future.
