TDU Platinum Dealer Update #01: US Independents
-> TDU Platinum Dealer Updates <- 01 - US Independents Dealership Update
Good news! 

I've been thinking about this for a while, and i finally decided to do it so.  Everyone knows that Platinum 2.0 is under development, at a really not desired pace, but moving nonetheless, also, what not everyone knows is my progress schedule. I am working a dealer at a time, so i decided, why not release small updates once i finish these dealers? 

This way, you guys not only will be able to follow my progress closely, how will also be able to enjoy new things without massive waiting times. Although, not everything is good, and there are compromises.  One of them is, these updates are not cumulative and not single picked downloads, if you skip one, the next one might cause bugs and crash your game, so, download all of them and keep yourself up to date! 

I mean, if you haven't downloaded and installed update 01, the following update (02), won't work. You will need to download 01, and 02, install both. 

Another compromise, if you edit the database of the game, your personal changes will not be carried over.


Now, keeping that in mind, download it and have fun. 
-> How to install <-

Just replace the files in the according folders. 

-> 01 - US Independents Update Content <- 

- Updated Shelby Series 1 with stripeless variation added as a tune
- Updated Saleen S7 Twin Turbo and Saleen S7 Twin Turbo Competition with fixed gauges and new tailight texture
- Updated SSC Ultimate Aero with fixed shadows, new tailight texture, paintable interior and GPS screen

TDU Solar Crown Developer Interview (October 2022)
A brief interview with Alain Jarniou (Creative Director at KT Racing) was published by thesixthaxis.com:



The interview does not drop any bombshells but does reflect on Alain's past passion projects (TDU 1 and 2) and reveals that despite the 1:1 map scale, tweaks and adjustments will be made to the game world to suit the types of driving and racing we all expect without getting stuck in traffic jams on very narrow roads.  Alain reassures us that the game is more than just racing, but about car appreciation and enjoyment of (virtual) ownership.

TDU Solar Crown remains slated for a release date sometime in 2023.
