Box Box Box - Project CARS & Assetto Corsa Players Club [DiRT, NFS, Forza Friendly!]


Dec 31, 2016
As you can probably tell from the title, this thread is being presented as an extension of The Garage, an area of the Linus Tech Tips forums where automotive enthusiasts can come together and speak words that express their amazement for the physical world, regardless of whether it has four wheels or not. Full credit to @techswede and everybody else in that thread for their thriving success (1,200+ pages!) and may it continue for many years to come. Also, while LTT does already have an existing Gaming Screenshots thread, it is much too cluttered for the purposes I’m proposing here, and it would be impractical to start new threads for videos. Hat tip to the members in either sub-community on their work and showing that there is a place on this forum for such media.

I am hereby formally inviting all members of the Linus Tech Tips forum to continue sharing their admiration for car culture of the digital kind.

Despite the two titles listed as the main focus of this thread, I will keep it open to any racing titles produced for either the PC or console platforms, be they arcade, simulator, or a hybrid of the two. Exceptions include, but are not limited to, motorcycle & ATV titles and any of the simulation experiences produced by Dovetail Games. Content presented as either moving or still pictures must adhere to the LTTF Code of Conduct; as for moderation, I will be keeping it to a minimum but will intervene as I see fit.


Without further ado, let’s get some administrative things out of the way!


I don’t actively race, can I still participate?

Absolutely! Much like club-racing in real life, I want to keep this thread as open as possible so we have plenty of room to grow. Whether you just want to drop by and check things out, are an actively contributing member, or are on the fence about purchasing a particular game, just leave a post and somebody will reply ASAP! We’re all super friendly and we (read: most of us) won’t bite.

What games are eligible for sharing here?

Preferably I’d like to keep it focused on the aforementioned games and exceptions, but I will be open to any game released after 2000. Examples include, but are not limited to: any CodeMasters game, any Need for Speed game, Driveclub, The Crew, rFactor, iRacing, GranTurismo, Forza Motorsports & Horizons, Mario Kart / Sonic All-Stars, and of course indie games (BeamNG Drive, Absolute Drift, Automatio, etc), just to name a few.

How do we capture content?

This is entirely up to the user and no one program is specified for the purposes of consistency. Software is open as far as I’m concerned, but I’ll leave you with this: Use whatever you like, but use it often and learn the absolute snot out of it. Examples: FRAPS, DXTory, Bandicam, OBS, XSplit, NVidia ShadowPlay, AMD Raptr, Steam (or any third-party) screenshots, etc.

Where to host images & videos?

Again, there are no restrictions as to where you can host your content, so long as the media adheres to the guidelines of the respective host and breaks none of the rules set by the developers; it is the responsibility of the user to make sure that these requests are met.

>> Preferred video hosts: YouTube, DailyMotion, Twitch

>> Preferred image hosts: imgr, PhotoBucket, Kinja, FaceBook, direct-attach (personal websites to be approved on a case-by-case basis)

As for editing software, the easiest (relatively speaking) suites, in no particular order, are Sony Vegas, Adobe Premiere, Lightworks (FREE!!) and Apple iMovie if you're in that camp. Export settings are entirely up to the user, preferrably one of the following: 720p30, 720p60, 1080p30, 1080p60, 1440p30, 4K.

Driving tips & set-up help?

This of course varies from game to game, and car to car, so if you have any questions feel free to post below with your car, current set-up, and whatever track(s) you’re having issues with. Alternatively you can seek help at the respective community forums for that specific game. As for driving tips and how to go faster / decrease lap times, I have listed a very useful resource whose tips also apply to real-life driving. That being said, you won’t learn anything unless you get out there (read: in game) and practice yourself, so find some time and invest in your skills!

Driving etiquette in online multi-player?

While not a full-on non-contact simulation level community, I am going to state a zero-tolerance policy for rammers and people who enter our lobbies with the intention of trolling. That being said, the occasional racing incident will go by with no further actions required. Bottom line: racing clean is ideal, but a bit of bumping and drafting every now and then keeps things interesting.

Set-up tours?

Similar to the Show Off Your Setup (est. 2013); not a mandatory part of membership, but I acknowledge the work people put into their set-ups, be it with or without a wheel. Any photos or videos are entirely up to the user’s discretion.



> ABOVE: My setup: custom made desk, gaming PC, 1x Asus MG279Q 144hz Freesync gaming monitor, 1x Dell U2312 UltraSharp monitor, Sony PS3, W7 Gaming PC (FX8350, R9 290 DCU-II), Logitech G27 (w/ WheelStand Pro), Beyerdynamic Custom One Pros, Creative AirWave HD BlueTooth speaker


Custom vehicle liveries?

Not applicable to every title, but where it is: liveries must adhere to the community guidelines regarding mature content and presentation of digital logos or brands. For games where custom liveries are not available in online gameplay (Assetto Corsa, Project CARS), users must select a livery that is shipped default with the game. If users intend to use custom liveries in their single-player endeavors, then there is no restriction; otherwise, liveries must be submitted to me for approval (via DM on LTTF) prior to an event, and I must be notified of any changes.

Downloadable content (DLC) and modding:

Both the Assetto Corsa and Project CARS communities are synonymous with having extra content available, be it paid or otherwise. In any case, credit must be given to wherever users obtain the mods from and if it is obtained commercially, it must be stated in the description of any videos. DLC that is provided by the developer (Kunos Simulazioni, Slightly Mad Studios) is subject to exceptions; bottom line is that redistribution is prohibited.

Unofficial LTT leagues?

As of now, there are no current plans for hosting any form of points-based league races, and we are all content with casual one-off events. This may change as there is more interest in this sub-community.

>>> Note: there will never be any physical nor monetary prizes awarded, should a league ever come into fruition.

Interacting with other members:

As with in the Garage, I am requesting that if you quote a previous post that you either hide all photos in a spoiler or delete all non-applicable photos from your reply. This is in the interest of those who have slow internet connections, or low bandwidth, and just makes interacting with one-another a smoother experience.

Again, a reminder that this is an open invite to anybody playing on a PC or any console.

See you all out on track!
