    It´s time for fireworks! A new year is soon (already?) upon us, and we at Reiza have been working flatout through this Holiday season to celebrate it with a bang - the most famous race track in the world, some amazing historical sports cars, new features and many improvements mark v1.1.0.0 as the biggest Automobilista 2 update yet!

    IMPORTANT: Given the amount of substantive changes in this update, we strongly recommend all users to start a fresh profile by deleting their Documents/Automobilista 2 folder to avoid issues (this will be requested with far less regularity from this update onwards).

    The Livery System Override is now fully implemented - to get your hands on the templates for all cars currently in the game and learn more about how you can go about replacing the original car liveries with your own please check this topic (will be updated with new templates as we add them).

    Please note that we have another batch of single player championships & a complementary art update for Spa incoming tomorrow after it goes through some internal testing in the morning.

    EDIT: Automobilista 2 has now been updated to v1.0.1.1 - this is a hotfix to complement the latest release with some further improvements & fixes to new features / content.

    Regarding Spa-Francorchamps DLC: We apologise for the ongoing unavailability of the standalone Spa DLC on Steam - we have already requested Valve´s support to address it and expect it will be sorted soon (by Monday at the latest). In the meantime it is still possible to acquire the track as part of the Premium Track Pack, or the complete 2020-2021 Season Pass.

    • GT1 AI callibration pass, GT3 AI rolling resistance adjustment to better match player straight speed
    • Adjusted roll bar rates in Group A cars (requires setup reset)
    • Greatly reduced values for AI simulated times when skipping session (logic appears to have been broken in one of the latter AI code changes so this is a paliative measure to help prevent AI doing much faster times when skipping session until bug is addressed)
    • Time Trial mode now includes all the latest content

    EDIT 13/01:

    Automobilista 2 has been updated to v1.1.0.4 - this is a substantive complementary update to the release from two weeks ago, the highlights being several improvements & corrections for Spa, new tire & driveline physics developments along with some new AI logic that should greatly improve their skill dodging traffic in multiclass races.

    :hurrayreiza:

    Will try tomorrow.

    Thank you a lot for this year Reiza! I got a gaming PC and VR this year. AMS2 took me by surprise in May. Your vision and feel is right up my alley. So keep up the good work, but also respect your free and family time. I will inject this update into my veins :D @Renato Simioni

    I heard some fireworks outside, so I assumed the update must have been released! Can't think what else they'd be for.

    Great to have the GT1s thanks, great to have the most important three cars from 1998 in game, although fingers crossed you find a way to include a Panoz or an Elise GT1 to add depth in future.

    Thanks for making random weather actually useable, no more constant snow or rain - would it be possible to publish the values you're using for each circuit's probability anywhere?

    AI improvements are always the think I hope for, and having lapped traffic AI finally in a Madness game is a huge relief - SMS did a great job with their car lists and getting some good multiclass carsets, but the game could never work with them.

    Formula Vintage and Retro tyre model improvements are my other highlight, favourite classes in the game (and can't wait for historic Nurburgring and Spa) so looking forward to trying these.

    See you in 2021 :)

    Congratulations Reiza boys, what a journey! Update at this time of year clearly shows nothing but brutal dedication to what you guys do. Thank you also for all the good work you did in the past with AMS1 and other titles. To many years..:hurrayreiza:

    Looks like a really quite substantial update... thanks for getting this out when you did.

    Looking forward to getting to grips with the CLK LM - probably one of my fave cars to drive in a sim. Intrigued by how AMS2 interprets it.

    Anyway,

    HNY Team Reiza :hurrayreiza:

    Thanks again :)

    Possible shared memory for motion data broke? Both Next Level Platform Manager, and Sim Racing Studio can't connect for Telemetry anymore. Deleted the Automobilista 2 Documents folder, and redid my config. Set Shared memory to Project Cars 2, UDP Protocol to Project Cars 2, and tried UDP frequency 1 as well as 9.

    Not a problem with Sim Commander with the same settings, just UDP on 5, but shouldn't make a difference.

    But the new cars are not available for TimeTrial:(

    Happy new Year:hurrayreiza:
