Players can choose to compete in regular global leagues or create private online races with friends. The free-to-play game offers real-time chat during races, group chat on leagues and direct messaging between friends, connecting an international community of aspiring race managers. All circuits in the game feature real-time weather data to match the live conditions at each location.

iGP Manager was founded by former racer and esports team manager Jack Basford, and developed by a 12-strong team around the world.

I think you took the wrong direction. You killed 2D topdown view (what I expected from a driving manager game) making it unplayable...

First hats and glasses, then 3D visual. But still there are the usual problems. There are no right priorities. Have you ever heard anyone complain about the bird's eye view?... Come on!

The 3D view, it's a nonsense* in a race managment game IMO. It's not a real driving game although you can adjust the push level and the boost.

the stand alone link for mac is incorrect!

when you choose the 3D option it send you to a broken link - https://static.igpmangaer.com/standalone/osx/iGPManager.zip

but i found out that if you correct the link to - https://static.igpmanager.com/standalone/osx/iGPManager.zip

it works!

From a "Moaner", this update actually isn't bad. It's a good start to implementing 3D. It does look good and gives the game more texture. People have the option to continue using 2D, which is fine. I do hope once 3D is completely implemented we get major updates that explore thoroughly the sim management aspect of the game, as that is the main draw for most managers. Good work though devs!
