One year ago, I decided to make my freetime game/physics experiment (codename "Tracks") public. I gave it a nice name, opened this blog, and uploaded version 0.11, the first public release.
One year later and 16(!) releases later, Rigs of Rods is still an revolutionnary experiment, and it gains traction every month! (RoR is now downloaded about 8000 times per version!)
Now, new horizons opens with the addition of flight physics to RoR, promising another unique experience of flexible physics as never seen in the mainstream "game industry".
To celebrate the first anniversary of the public release of RoR, here is a screenshot of the very first truss ever simulated with the physics engine. It was somewhere around late march 2005.
Cheers, and thanks to all the fans!
