New Star Games have updated the Early Access version of New Star GP to include licensed tech from other teams, new content from the 2000s, and more.
*ADDED: 2000s racing decade! This CAREER MODE update includes a total of 35 brand new events, and a new racing location in Poland. As if that wasn’t enough, it also adds a grid of new, and more capable CPU drivers and teams to out-race, and 3 new cars for you to upgrade and customise! The two Poland track configurations are also added to CREATE-A-CHAMPIONSHIP MODE, so can be added to your own custom championship configurations.
*ADDED: Licensed tech! You can now improve your cars not only with upgrades, but also by licensing technology from other teams for temporary performance improvements providing an alternative upgrade strategy, or a temporary boost to beat that hard to finish event. Friendly teams will offer a discount on their tech, but teams driven by hostile drivers will bump the price of theirs!
*ADDED: Improved news! News has had a graphical update with new staging based on driving decade, plus a selection of new news stories.
*IMPROVED: Higher resolution shadows in cockpit view.
*IMPROVED: The opportunity to sack an unhappy member of staff!
*IMPROVED: Edit your character’s appearance from the Customise Screen in the garage.
*FIXED: Sound effects now play when you repair a component in the pits.
*FIXED: Issue with CPU car performance in reverse races not recognising when they’re the lead car.
*FIXED: New stories where CPU drivers were being mis-gendered.
*FIXED: Quitting championships made in CREATE-A-CHAMPIONSHIP MODE sometimes didn’t save if no return to the Mode Select Screen.
*FIXED: Dilemma issue in which both staff members increased their happiness.
*FIXED: Multiplayer championships now save progress between launches, and can be resumed with any number of players.
