VDrift 2009-06-15

vdrift-okVDrift 2009-06-15 per Mandriva Linux 2010.0 & 2009.1

VDrift is a cross-platform, open source driving simulation made with drift racing in mind.




The driving physics engine was recently re-written from scratch but was inspired and owes much to the Vamos physics engine. It is released under the GNU General Public License (GPL) v2. It is currently available for Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X and Windows.

This game is in the early stages of development but is already very playable. Currently the game features:

  • Simulation-grade driving physics
  • Tracks based on famous real-world tracks
  • Cars based on real-world vehicles
  • Competition against AI players
  • Mouse/joystick/gamepad/wheel/keyboard support
  • More...










Most noticeable changes:

* cars collide with each other in Single Race mode now
* AI is capable of much faster driving now, so added a difficulty slider
* off-road tire spin sound support (thanks to slowdan!)
* support for H-gate shifters
* improved performance
* lots of huge bugs fixed, especially car physics bugs
