Are You Ready for the New Horse Race Game – Virtual Racing Like Never Before! Read Now

Are You Ready for the New Horse Race Game – Virtual Racing Like Never Before! Read Now

There is a lot happening at Horse Racing Simulation. As I said back in July, though we’re getting hundreds of new registrations per day, most people walk away from the game because they don’t want to install the Unity plug-in. To resolve that issue, we have rebuilt all the modules in Flash (everyone has Flash installed). The modules are in their final testing and will be available a week from Thursday. This should instantly drive new players into the game. Once they’re playing in Flash, we’ll try to convert them to Unity over time because Unity will always offer the better playing experience. This will be the first of many updates that will be taking place over the next month or so. We have rebuilt the entire new player experience, guiding them through a multi-step process that gets them instantly engaged in the game while simultaneously educating them and opening up features step-by-step so they’re not overwhelmed. We looked at all horse racing game sites and realized everyone has the same problem – throwing too much at their players at one time, but we’re the only ones that have taken the time to build a process similar to what the biggest gaming companies in the world have done – that’s called ‘leveling up’, where you open up game play as people become familiar with the game. This new player experience process is also complete and has just gone into testing. It should be available within three weeks. Again, this is all part of the commitment we’ve made to dramatically enhance the game experience and build our user base.

I will be asking several players to walk through this new player experience process to help with feedback. From what we see internally, we expect a major shift in game adaption. We have really streamlined the entire introduction to our game. We have spent a lot of time and money on this new process.

All of our Unity racing assets are currently being rebuilt. This includes new horses, new jockeys, new animations for the jockeys and horses, new shading, additional camera views, etc. These changes will absolutely give us the most realistic horses and horse racing scenes on the web. The way the horses race around the track and lean into the curves, the way the jockeys’ bodies shift while riding, the enhanced details of both the horses and jockeys – all bring the game to a new level of realism. This is a major upgrade for us and we’re excited to be the first company to offer such detailed 3D graphics for a web horse racing game. The Unity player will become much more realistic than the desktop client.

All of the modifications, changes and additions mentioned over the last three months in my blog are at the last stages of development. We have dramatically simplified the entire stable management process. We’ve added new tools to make a trainer’s life easier. I don’t even want to start to list the enhanced updates because there are so many of them, but keep in mind that everything mentioned in my blogs and more has been done.

The new desktop client is also in its final stage of development. We’ve been able to solve some big problems when it comes to game-to-server communications. The new client is much easier to work with, has advanced features for training your horses and even allows you to access your horse’s performance reports, advanced performance reports (new feature) and full PPs right from the client, eliminating the going back and forth between client and web game. The desktop client new design is stunning and is more in line with our current web game theme and colors, bringing everything together.

This is an entirely new product. Don’t get me wrong – a lot of the core functionality is the same. We just dealt with the biggest gripes our players have and addressed them so they are resolved.

In the end, our game will offer not only real prizes, guaranteed monthly bonuses, trophies and plaques, but also VIP excursions to some of the biggest racing events in the country, including the Breeders’ Cup, the Preakness, the Florida Derby and the Santa Anita Derby. In addition to all of this, our winners and their horses will be profiled in racing’s premier publications, bringing our virtual world one step closer to horse racing reality. Playing our game will be as close as you can get to owning a real thoroughbred race horse. In fact, in some instances it will be more rewarding.

There isn’t another horse racing game in the world that will bring you this close to the real world of thoroughbred racing. To all of the players who have stayed here, we thank you. What you’re about to see is nothing less than spectacular. We know there are other horse racing games out there, but we also know that they cannot touch us when it comes to the complete package offering everything that a horse racing fan would expect from the world of virtual racing. We are about to become the Triple Crown of fantasy racing. For the players who have the fever for horse racing and want real derby action, Horse Racing Simulation will be the only game in town - everything else is child’s play.

I'm on pins and needles,

I'm on pins and needles, waiting for the improved game to start appearing. I will be delighted to see my horses looking and moving like real ones. I have never been thrilled by the ownership of cartoon horses. Improvement in the Unity player will also be a joy to me, as I now run all races on the desktop client because I find the Unity races very unreal in their presentation. Overall, I like this game a great deal now but have been yearning for the very things you are promising to have in the new game. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK. I will be loyal to the end.

Thanks..........

for the update, Mike. This all sounds GREAT! I'm looking forward to playing the game with all the new features.
Thank You and the team for all your hard work and dedication.
I'd like to be a "tester" for the new game, if possible.

Congrats

Can't wait to see the changes being rolled out. Congrats to the HRF team. Plenty of reasons to be positive about the game's future

Puddles, this blog is similar to the one you posted way back on September 2nd. Telling everyone how great, superior, exciting, and how much better this game is, and will be, compared to the competition. Blah, blah, etc. That was well over 2 months ago now and you haven't even done anything yet, LOL. Nothing has been released. Just hype. I think you missed your calling. You should have gone into politics or televangelism.

Sounds exciting! Keep it

Sounds exciting!
Keep it rolling, Mike.

Very good

For the players that have FEVER for horse racing and want real DERBY action..... Love that line by Puddles.... very witty.

kochkj's picture

Awesome!

Can't wait to the new game but the hype is getting a bit over done and I'm thinking I need to wear some boots when I read these updates as the BS is getting deeper every update. Hard to believe you can make massive improvements to the existing game, which is pretty good. I find it laughable when you compare fantasy to real horse racing. The trainer game is definitely a poor mans substitute for those unable to pursue the real thing but there is no comparison between owning a fantasy versus a real horse and training in the game does not correlate to concepts of training a real horse in any way. That being said your game is fun and worth playing. Good luck.

My continued support.

Eu gosto deste jogo, mas eu gostaria que ele mais se houvesse mais realismo. As recompensas e quebra-cabeças são de pouco interesse para mim. Eu continuo a apoiar o jogo e desejo sucesso continuado. Sound Of Rum

El idioto

Hopefully, the new changes will include dismissing all misleading, non-playing negative players, out with some sort of BS agenda. Flyingdaaka had heard this would happen during the new update.
If so, great. Can't wait.

Daaka, my good friend, don't be too hard on yourself. Daaka, the king of misleading b.s. LOL

Pagué un máximo de dos años adicionales. Sólo mi forma de mostrar apoyo a este juego.
Or something to that effect...

Five plus years of support

<<< I paid a maximum of two additional years. Just my way of showing support for this game.>>>

Kind of similar to my way of supporting this game. Can't wait for new releases, hoping they compare to some of my personal wishes.

instant action tourney

An instant action tourney is highly requested if possible. A restricted or general tourney that can be run in an hour that consist of a minimum of 4 runners to a maximum of 10, online action is one of the first come into my mind, more exciting for players i think. The one race tourney can be prepared in less than one hour including the entry, lasix and bits application and the race itself, In my opinion like this tourney will fill very fast for those players that are online every time not waiting for days or weeks to fill and run.

instant action tourney is very good!

mysongforyou's picture

Thank You Mike

Some people just don't understand you just can't (wiggle your nose or blink, like in Bewitched or I Dream of Jennie) and fix everything over night. Things must be tested before release(Pres. O Dum Dum could learn a lot from you and Pre testing), Keep up the good work .
I can't wait to see the finished PRE-TESTED release. It sounds wonderful.
But you know what they say, YOU can Please some of the people some of the time BUT you can't please all of the People ALL of the time, And There are some that are un-pleaseable.
Keep up the good work.

instant tourneys

instant tourneys are a great idea, especially for us old retired people. would give us some daytime action for those cold winter days we are stuck in the house all day.

gosuper's picture

Still the number one online

Still the number one online horse racing game. I look forward to the changes and I wish Mike and his team all the very best for the future of this game. Keep up the good work and I am sure the changes will make this game even better.

New HRF Game

New game, instant tourneys, more realistic horses, all of this sounds really fabulous and I cannot wait to see this new game Mike! Great job with the current game and thank you for always trying to make our fantasy horseracing experience better!!

troyboy13's picture

Game enhancements

Love the game as it is. Upcoming changes and enhancements will truly make it a one of a kind experience for those of us that love HR SIM games.

I have played almost every game out there and yours is the best hands down.

Like everyone else, I am having major probs with downloading UNITY. Look forward to new experience.

Keep up the good work.

Although I haven't accumulated many game points, I love playing all aspects of the game.

kochkj's picture

Pre test is a novel concept

The games was changed often over the last year..we are still testing it as we play. Next graphinc and interface change is mobile access improvements now being marketed as a game improvement. Tournament structure changes should be easy software adjustments. Is the Christmas present still on track?

21burns's picture

Perfection.

Puddles has stated that we will be seeing the perfect game.PERFECTION has never been achieved before in the gaming world.It may take time for the many changes to be in place but be patient.Perfection is not easily or quickly achieved.

New Horses minus halters

Does this mean that we will get rid of the halters with nameplates and use bridles instead when horses are racing? Whew, I am so relieved!!
