Time Trial mode screenshots


These new screenshots show the time trial mode interface. Originaly I had used a numeric display for the lap times but, although it gave more accurate readings, I think that a clock suits the game era much better.
It also makes easier look at the progress along the track. The previous display only did show the Best and Last lap times without any indication of the current lap timing.
In the screenshots you can see three needles in the clock. The white one displays the current lap timing and moves while racing.
The black needle shows the last lap timing and the orange shows your best time ever.
Also another big detail in these screenshots is the pilot. The driver has gone in for all cars now.
The driver reacts to the player steering and adds a lot of action to the scene. I was quite happy when I first saw it moving.

  1. I think you're right, the clocks suit the game's atmosphere.
    Can't wait to see it IRL!
