netKar PRO features
Rain Modeling: Race with different selectable levels of wet. Water puddles on the race track affect tyre grip, ride heights and aero modeling. You will have to find the best line through a corner, taking care of your fragile rain tyres. Raise your single seater car to avoid acquaplaning on the variable water layer on the road.
New features and contents: netKar-PRO introduces new graphic features, brand new tyre model, different wet conditions and four new contents: The Vintage GT car, the Vintage replica GT car, the Osella PA21s prototype and the 17km Hillclimb Course Trento-Bondone.
Interactive cockpits: netKar PRO allows users to immerse themselves in the core of the simulation. The cockpits are conceived and modeled with high details and, for the first time in a racing simulation, the dashboard instruments are interactive: Buttons and switches are "active", so that is possible to activate them by mouse, keyboard or game controller, like the most professional flight simulations.
Tyres: netKar PRO features dynamic tyre surfaces which change not only in behavior but also in visual appearance as more and more track miles are added to their carcasses, when dirt build up occurs on the tyre and from punctures and tyre damage from contact. With the tyre's visible appearance changing to reflect these changes, not only will the driver feel the differences but also will be able to see it, giving a whole new dimension to tyre management in simulated motorsports.
