AccuRC 2.0.6 Released!
AccuRC 2.0.6 is RELEASED and available through Steam!
Let us start by saying that this update is larger than anything we’ve ever done before. It is packed to the brim with new content and features, as well as a ton of optimizations. And the best thing is, this update is completely free of charge!
Large parts of the simulator have been rewritten to boost performance through the roof and to reduce input latency to the absolute minimum, so much that AccuRC 2.0.6 will run 60FPS in 1080p on Intel HD4000 graphics with no issues and no noticable lag whatsoever. We managed to almost double the physics FPS compared to 2.0.5, which means that 2.0.6 will easily run on an dual core 3GHz processor.
AccuRC 2.0.6 was a huge project and redefined the simulator that AccuRC is. With this leaner, meaner and faster platform, we’re expecting to be able to do amazing things in the future. As a little preview, 2.0.7 will focus a lot on adding new helicopters, quadcopters, training modes, StickMover integration and much more to look forward to.
Last but not least, we’d like to thank our amazing community for their feedback, testing, contributions, suggestions and support. We couldn’t have done it without you.
