PROJECT CARS: APPS
Community Apps are another great example of our focus on innovation, our determination to break from tradition, and our continuing dedication to the Project CARS community.
Over a year ago, Slightly Mad Studios released an API giving the community the ability to plug directly in to Project CARS and pull out a variety of information. The intent here was to allow you the players the ability to create your own supporting apps for all the weird and wonderful devices and hardware you own.
Below are just a few of the fantastic creations you’ve made that further blur the lines between game and real-life, and prove once more that Project CARS is the most technically-advanced racing game on the planet…
