    Automobilista 2 V1.3.0.0 is now live! The first of several updates on this dev cycle is heavily focused on physics and FFB - extensive revisions to driveline and tires of all cars and addition of a new FFB profile as elaborated in our November Development Update Pt2 makes this our biggest physics overhaul yet..

    The extent of the physics updates have required default setups & AI performance to be adjusted accordingly, a process that remains ongoing for the next few days so you may expect some small hotfixes to be deployed before the release of Racin´ USA Pt2 next week.

    AMS2 V1.3 introduces new FFB profile (Default+) in parallel to the old "Default" profile which remains available for users who may prefer it. Information on these FFB updates along with an updated tutorial to best set it up will be posted on a dedicated thread soon.

    The update also introduces the beta version of our Multiplayer Rating System - information on the mechanisms of the system as well as other relevant information for AMS multiplayer and its ongoing development will also be coming in its own dedicated thread soon.

    Finally, AMS2 V1.3 also brings some new & updated content - the TSI Cup class featuring the VW Polo & Virtus from the Acelerados Demo released last week is now included in the main game. On the track front, the Azure street circuit has been completely overhauled with the aid of laser scan data.

    IMPORTANT: You must delete your Automobilista 2\savegame\[User Profile Number]\automobilista 2\tuningsetups to reset your car setups to their original settings - failure to do so may result in a broken driving experience (it is not necessary to delete your other game settings).

    IMPORTANT: The extent of the physics changes means that a reset of Time Trial leaderboards will finally taking place in the coming days, so don´t bother much with previous lap times & setups.

    Remember to take this important note seriously. In my rush to testing out the new Azure track, I forgot to delete the tuning setups and things felt weird. After I deleted it, it felt great.

    VERY VERY VERY VERY important.

    Reset all your setups/wipe the whole tuningsetups folder guys, he's not joking. This revision is very big and being on old setups doesn't work! :)

    Sixth gear for the 720S GT3 seems really short at Spa. Also it's letting me change the gearing for the 720S.
