    While it definitely has its quirks that need to be ironed out, I feel like the fact that this is the only sim I've played since I bought it about a month ago is a testament to how much of a compelling sim Reiza have made. Hats off to everyone at the team and best of luck with future updates!

    I recently read that someone recommended deleting the custom ffb file the documents folder. I was set to default. It seemed to make a big difference. Not sure why(could be placebo and more actual recent updates). All the cars feel believable apart from one or two. Porsche cup drives like a porsche and doesn't bounce like crazy anymore. Really good fun! It's sad that Reiza have been getting bad press lately and great that Steelcast has defended Reiza's honor. AMS 2 kept me sane during early covid lock down. I enjoy all the sims but really enjoy AMS 2's huge track list and interesting cars. Originally I bought it purely for the Caterhams, which are sublime now. But got so much more. It's huge value for money. It also taught me the value in a bit of set up time. This has spilled over into other sims and helped me plenty. It's also been great seeing the development over time. Interesting stuff for sure. Cool, have a great weekend everyone! Looking forward to the next rollercoaster update!

    Dear Reiza,

    Since it's the last day of the month I thought it would be good to let you know that I'm ready for another update. Just in case you were holding the release as you may have not been aware that I'm ready ;)
    I am 100% ready. Please do not hold it because of me.

    Thanks,
    @stealthradek

    PS: I've realised that some previous releases were delayed because I've not made it clear that I was ready, so I've decided to clear up any misunderstandings this time.

    There's a maxim in Brazil, don't know how it correlates in english.

    Whilst we wait for the update, for any of you into D.I.Y. tactile feedback, turns out AMS2 has the best functionality with Simhub software, out of alol the sims i've tried this with so far!

    I know it's likely not going to happen, but with the anniversary of Senna's passing coming soon maybe there'll be news on the Brazilian pack? After all, the McLarens have been teased since before AMS2 even came out :p

    I think Reiza are unsure if stealthradek is really "ready" for the "size" of the update...;)

    • Adjusted crowd/character visibility in various game modes and session types
    • Fixed issue where only LODb of some meshes would hide based on session type
    • Small fix to G923 Initialization
    • Added Game launch command line switch "disableTF" for users with issues running Logitech G923 TrueForce to fallback to legacy mode

    AI
    • Increased AI qualifying pace
    • Increased AI prudence against human players
    • Callibrated AI rolling resistance for R-Retro Gen1 & Gen2
    • Reduced minimal AI Strentgh range (results in slightly slower AI in the 70-99% range)

    • Silverstone 2020/2001/1991: Adjusted AI performance at Maggots, Becketts, Chapel

    Yey, driver helmets! And always happy for AI improvements. And yey, no more duplicate liveries!

    Presumably this means not to expect 1.5 update for a while?
