    The new Automobilista 2 update brings some fantastic historical content, another major batch of FFB, physics & AI developments along with several improvements & fixes.

    V1.1.1.3 -> V1.1.2.0 CHANGELOG

    CONTENT

    Tracks
    • Added Spa Francorchamps 1993 layout
    Vehicles
    • Added Group C class featuring Sauber Mercedes C9 & Porsche 962C
    • Added Stock Car 1999 Omega series
    GENERAL
    • Implemented new LiveTrack wet weather rubber washing (rubber is now gradually washed away from track surface as it gets saturated with water)
    • Expanded available opponent classes to 9 (10 total)
    • Bumped headlight range from 160 to 240m for all cars
    • Corrected number of opponents in Championship mode to match the series current total number of opponents
    • Added function to set different presets of rubber depending on type of session (making option available to player will soon follow)
    • Added new functions to control when vehicle headlights & tail lights should remain on and DRS rules remain disabled based on track wetness threshold (previously was solely based on environment light levels)
    • Replaced Spa 2020 with Spa 1993 on the calendar of pre-2005 championships

    UI & HUD
    • Re-styled event rules & regulations page
    • Re-styled single player opponent settings page

    • Fixed missing French & German localization for track limits setting
    • Adjusted font size on track limit warnings labels for Rules & Regulations UI screen

    FFB
    • Introduced routine to reset FFB in case of FFB loss (game detects the loss and reset FFB automatically, should be seamless for player)
    • Adjusted default FFB profile for more accurate self-aligning torque, milder force spikes over big bumps and other such sudden tire oad.change; adjusted effect from braking torque (should provide better feedback during lockups); split FX signal from Low Force Boost setting

    PHYSICS
    • Added slow damping function to all tires (generally improves tire damping & fixes bouncing effect at very slow speeds previously proeminent in formula cars)
    • Added intermediate & extreme tyre compounds for modern protos, GTs & formulas
    • Adjusted tire tread for 60s touring cars, Opalas, Copas Fusca, Uno, Truck, Caterham Academy & F-Trainer
    • Adjusted semi-slick tire tread (F-Trainer Advanced, Caterhams, ARC Camaro)

    • Increased RPM threshold for reduced engine life in 2-stroke karts
    • Moved Metalmoro AJR diffuser center of pressure rearwards by 2cm (slightly rebalancing overall aero distribution)
    • Slightly falloff rates in rain for all slick tires (addressing issues with tires losing all adherence beyond a certain saturation point)
    • Minor stifness adjustment to GT / Proto / StockCar tire carcasses
    • Added minor preload resistance to open diffs in cars with more powerful engines
    • Adjusted Porsche 911 GT1 engine compression curve

    • Added car-specific overrides for previously global parameters controlling the amount of lifting off the throttle AI would do while running over puddles, & introduced new car-specific parameter controlling the amount of lifting while on wet tires (generally less than on dry tires, improves their straightline performance when going through large amounts of standing water)
    • Added several car-specific overrides for previously global AI parameters such as brake and reaccelaration distance thresholds, start reaction times, distance triggers for defending position
    • Reduced likelihood of AI crashing into wall when side by side with human
    • Increased AI drivers performance range
    • Minor AI callibration pass for performance dropoff with tire wear

    My lovely Bus Stop chicane is back!
    When driving this track, it is a shame to know what happens to the beautiful Spa track about 15 years later and how it looks today.

    REIZA - great and hyper super work, again!
    THANK YOU SO MUCH! ss172425.jpg
    And alongside the hype of GroupC cars, the Omegas are really cool to drive, too. A big THANKS!

    Under AI, there is mention of "car-specific overrides" for some AI behavior. Where do I find these overrides? I looked through the menus in game and don't see anything. Is there a file somewhere in my documents folder?

    This is for the AI behaviour. It is not a setting the user can change.

    F@#K ME!

    I just tested this odd combo at Bathurst and the Ai were unreal. I watched from the pit in FP1 how the faster cars navigated through traffic and it was very natural looking. In the race they also behaved very well.

    A very nice step for the Ai. :cool::cool::cool:

    Much improved for me on my test mule; G58 at Silverstone 2001. :cool:

    Add: Super V8 is improved too..

    There seems to be an issue with the Dedi server. Has anyone run into this? Gives a track ID error

    Sounds like some of @Karsten Hvidberg work with FFB has been adopted. How progressive is that from the developers. :)

    Yes, yes and yes! But let's be honest here, what track wasn't superior in terms of sheer excitement in 1993?
    The Omega really, really surprised me, too much fun.
    The sound on the Porsche 962C?! Good thing I have the day off tomorrow...

    Seriously....who needs the modern Spa when you can have the 80s/90s version? So much better.

    just watched a 32 car multi-class AI race at bathurst and I gotta say what a great effort on this new patch - The AI behave much better :)

    One thing that still bugs me (a little) is how 'tanky' the cars are - IN this ai race i seen quite a few heavy hits on the side and from behind and the cars dont budge one bit
