The car driving game named "City Car Driving" is a new car simulator, designed to help users feel the car driving in а big city or in a country in different conditions or just go for a joy ride. Special stress in the "City Car Driving" simulator has been laid on a variety of different road situations and realistic car driving.

"City Car Driving" is a car simulator game (for non-commercial use), using advanced car physics to achieve a realistic car feeling and a high-quality render engine for graphical realism. Cars, roads, traffic, pedestrians - all of the above are created as to make players feel they're driving a real car in a real city. The 3D files, physics and other specific files of our "City Car Driving" car game are open for modification and allow users to add their own car models into the simulator, modify cars physics, etc. So, you may have a very customizable and expandable simulator.

A new version 1.3 is a standalone add-on for the "City Car Driving" car simulator, which has many important new features. The "City Car Driving v1.3" contains all content of the "City Car Driving v1.0" plus new features, so the "City Car Driving v1.0" is not required to play the "City Car Driving v1.3".

What's new in version 1.3:

  • Added the left driving mode (driving on the left side of the road).
  • Added new right-handed player cars (wheel is on the right side of the car).
  • Added new languages support: Turkish and Chinese.
  • Added DirectX 11 support (can be selected in the game settings menu).
  • Added two-section traffic lights.
  • Added an ability to copy settings from the existing player profile, when creating a new one.
  • Added an ability to view with a mouse inside of a car.
  • Added support of needle indicators with irregular scale.

Key features:

  • Multilingual support enhances the usability of the simulator. Currently supported languages are: English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Turkish, Czech, Chinese and Japanese. In future we plan to add more languages.

  • Support for both right-handed and left-handed driving modes allows you to drive not only under the usual traffic rules, adopted in most countries of the world - on the right side of the road, but also under the rules used for the driving on the left side of the road, as it is for example, in Australia, Japan, UK and some other countries. This feature makes our car simulator a versatile tool, regardless of the country which the user resides in.

  • New right-handed player cars immerse the player in completely different unusual driving conditions.

  • DirectX 11 support is a big step forward in terms of graphics quality and performance! This game mode is faster and consumes less memory.

  • Advanced physics. The newest physical engine in the simulator makes possible to feel realistic driving. Maximal speed corresponds to car prototypes. A mathematical model of a car engine takes into account: friction force, inertia and many other nuances.

  • Damage. All cars get visible damage, when collide.

  • Smart traffic AI. Traffic cars are physical, they're able to collide with player's car or with each other.

  • Driving missions. You can train your driving skills and start your own driver career performing 14 special driving missions with different difficulty level. Some of them provide with an opportunity of nonlinear walkthrough.

  • Random routes in free driving mode. Routes can be defined as without any limitations (set only a destination, and let the navigator pave the best route to it), and be represented as a small mission with a limited penalty scores for traffic rules violations (user can choose what types of violations will be considered - all types of violations or only some types).

  • Trams. The virtual city has several tramways. Driver should be more careful near them.

  • Pedestrians. The virtual city has many unsupervised crosswalks used by pedestrians.
