    V 1.0.6 is now live. Here's the full changelog:
    -Dynamic reflections resolution on car 4 times bigger than before.
    -Removed 2D crappy audience. Inserted 3D animated audience.
    -Real time shadows on all objects.
    -Smoothness effect on real time shadows.
    -Landscapes are now richer.
    -Bug fixes (including Mexico Stage 6 issue)
    -Replay Kit compatibility. It is possible to record and share races in Time Attack mode
    -Improved wheels animation.
    -Smoothed controls: car is less nervous when countersteering.
    -Application size reduction (from 20 to 50Mb depending on devices).
    -Battery drain optimization (code has been polished to run this version without overheating).
    Hope you all like the new upgrade. I see the gain is gaining traction in some AppStore, it's now #1 in Italy in "Rally" search, while in Russia has been positively reviewed by appleinsider.ru :D

    Well, only one stage played and you can already see and feel the difference. There is a lot more going on now visually, it definitely looks a lot richer. Shadows, rain, fog.. The trees, everything looks much nicer than before.

    Handling is much smoother, I finished the stage without any swearing! I still haven't got the E brake right yet, I still found it snapped back in the other direction after straightening up, but I think I may have been going too fast.

    A big big improvement from what it was overall. Good stuff! Gotta play some more #

    Hello guys, it's a bit of time I don't update the thread :)
    Well the development of M.U.D. Rally kept going on these days and I'm pleased to post here some of the biggest chance since the last post:
    • Car control has been further smoothed for easier controls
    • Stages' graphics got enhancements and improvements
    • Car livery have been rewritten and are now more detailed
    • Dirt look on the car feels much better
    • Several bugs have been fixed
    • Added hud alerts for turns
    I am quite impressed by the success the game is having in his first month of life, it has been featured on both AppStore and Google Play in some country, and it keeps an high average rate on both stores. I carefully listed to all customers' feedbacks and I'm keeping an eye on them for the next updates.
    Ah! A developer from another success rally game posted a 1 star review suggesting other players to download his game instead. That made me think that M.U.D. Rally is on the right rail to become more and more loved by customers ;)

    I reinstalled this as HUD alerts have been added. Deleted it before as the engine noise was too loud for me, and could barely hear the co-driver's directions. Much better now with the additional visual indication.

    Just finished the French snow stage and thought the handling was exceptionally good. Just like driving in snow - a fair amout of grip up to a point and then nothing. No brakes or steering. Hope it isn't changed too much as it would be a pity to lose the challenge.

    Was wondering if difficulty levels were being considered; e.g. a smooth driving arcade mode and a simulation mode using the original telemetry data.

    I noticed a lot of people find hard driving on snow. While it requires what we in Italy call "telephone gas" (keep pushing and releasing throttle in turns), a lot of people just find it "hard", missing the simulation aim of the game.
    Yes at a certain point we thought about an arcade mode, but we are still thinking wether it's a good idea or not.
    To raise difficulty, we plan to add a B-Spec mode, and add the super fast and brutal cars inspired from B-Group cars of 80's era.
