So couple weeks ago we decided to release public test bikes (PTB) or “Preview Bikes” to our OEM Supporters.
I have some good news for you today: We updated them and they’re live NOW!
Once again we decided to update the KTM 250 and 450. We started work on a another set of bikes, but that needs way more work before it’s able to see the light of day. And we’re pretty happy with how these two turned out, compared to public v0.18.1c bikes as well as Preview Bikes #1.
Some nice words about this update by the team:
We’ve all been there. You’re riding your absolute heart out, well on your way to setting a new personal best on your favorite track. Last turn, thinking you have it in the bag… And BAM! You just got “Pibosoed”! Instead of cheering for a new personal best, you are now scrolling the web to order yourself a new controller.
This feeling of loss of control has been torturing players since the beginning of time. Not just us who enjoy MX Bikes, but also those playing GP Bikes. Countless reports have been filed on the subject and it sadly never got resolved.
However, thanks to recent discoveries by JVDL Designs, we believe to have found the missing key to help remedy the issue as best as possible. We’ve calibrated and tailored a core value that seemed to be out of place according to “physic law”. Changing this value grants the feeling of being in control of the bike, instead of the bike controlling you.
It does not mean you will never experience wobble or washouts ever again, as those are very real life situations when riding on the absolute edge. It does mean that your chances of surviving said situations have been increased and that you are now able to ride up a hill without holding on for dear life.
We can bore you with a lengthy article giving you an in-depth explanation on how we implemented this and how it works. BUT WE WON’T!
Instead we provide you with a new set of preview bikes with the change implemented so you can test it yourselves.
already a supporter?
PS. Once we have concluded our research it is our goal to make this discovery publicly available. This will also provide players from other Piboso games with the means to resolve similar problems.
We deeply hope you all enjoy the bikes as much as we do. We’re hyped for the future!
