Part 2: Setting up a development team for Virtual RC v3 (2002)

After having promoted our ‘Virtual RC game port adaptor’ together with Lothar’s r/c game I thought it was time to step it up to the next level. I started laying out my plans to Lothar and he seemed receptive to the idea to do a more realistic and serious r/c sim. Had Lothar done his own r/c game all by himself, it was clear at the outset that my ambitions with this new version were a lot more ambitious and would need a bigger team to develop it. In my plans I envisaged properly modeled 3D cars and tracks, and a physics engine to make the cars behave as realistic as possible. And of course, I wanted the new platform to be able to host races for the members, and post the results on a website. So the idea for VRC v3 was born, but it was clear that we would need ‘experts’ in each of these fields.

Part 1 How it all began…

All my ‘rc’ life and especially as a manufacturer I have been wondering how we could make the r/c car hobby more accessible for the general public. This hobby is simply very difficult to get in to, especially in those days. Companies like Kyosho and Tamiya were the only companies offering products which were entry level, but even these were quite difficult to operate. As a manufacturer of model racing cars it was even more difficult to promote our racing products. Promotion was limited to advertising in rc magazines and r/c races. Remember in those days there was no internet yet!

Late nineties the first computer sims came on the market, for real racing cars, air flight sims and also sims for radio-controlled model airplanes. This triggered the idea of creating an rc car sim so we could everyone give a ‘virtual’ rc racing experience without having to worry about crashing the car all the time. And of course, the game had to be controlled with a proper r/c transmitter, not ... read more
