Endurance Monday – Your way!

Voting for Monday: 2nd April 2018

Votes off for this week, will be Clio's @ Cadwell due to an issue with last weeks votes


 

Mondays Endurance is a staple part of ART Sim Racing, they go together like rubber on tarmac.

Well we thought it was time to use our fancy new site and the polls to let you, the members of ART, choose some combos. 

 

On the right you will have noticed two polls, one for tracks, one for cars. Pick a car in one poll and a track on the other. The one with the most votes gets the pick.

 

If you would like to make a suggestion on tracks for upcoming events drop a comment below or make a post on Discord.

Assetto Corsa Mods

The guide


If you dont need the guide scroll to the bottom for links to the mods

Assetto Corsa is a fine racing sim, and arguably its best feature is the ability to run mods.

On our AC server we are currently running a few mods and some members have had difficulty getting on due to this, so without further ado I give you the mods, and how to install them. But bare in mind we are always tinkering with new mods and Im a lazy swine so this guide might not always reflect our servers content.

 

Before you go feverishly grabbing the Ride on Lawn Mower mod you are first going to need a tool to extract the mods that come in .zip format and then you need to familiarise yourself with the games file structure.

Video tutorial for the YT generation

All the mods and links in the video can be found below

7zip

Software to extract the mods

The simplest tool to use for extracting the files to the correct folder is a program called 7zip, and better still its free!

Head on over to the 7zip download page here and download the either the 32bit or 64bit, if you arent sure which to grab if you are on windows 10 you will likely be on 64bit, but if all else fails grab the 32bit program and get it installed.

 

steam folderThe filestructure and where to place mods

The easiest way to get to your Assetto Corsa folder is through the Steam app itself. Start by going to your Steam library and right clicking Assetto Corsa and selecting Properties:

AC STEAM FOLDER

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the resulting window click on the LOCAL FILES tab and click BROWSE LOCAL FILES

 

acmodbrowse

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is going to pop us right into the files for Assetto Corsa and we are going to need to navigate to the Folder called Content - This is where we place our mods.

content ac mods

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now pay attention to the folder names in here, as this is where all the good stuff goes. Tracks needs to go into the track folder, cars into cars etc etc. Simple stuff, but important you get it right and respect the file structure.

Installing our first mod

We will go ahead and install my favourite modded track so far, Glencoe. You can grab the mod from RaceDepartment here 

Once you have it downloaded Right click the file and select Open With 7Zip -> Open Archive

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This will give us a new window with the Glencoe track in, all we need to do now is back in our Content folder of Assetto Corsa we opened earlier, open the folder named Tracks and drag the folder "Glencoe" from 7Zip into a an empty space in the Tracks folder, if you done it correctly, you will now have a folder named Glencoe in your tracks folder

And if you open the folder you should see all the contents, if you see another folder call Glencoe you have done it incorrectly. On opening the folder it should resemble this:

If you have done it correctly you now have the wonderful Glencoe to cruise about and explore.
