    The first Automobilista 2 update of 2022 is now live! V1.3.3.0 adds the F-USA Gen3 with the Reynard 2Ki & Lola B2K/00 & Road America to the Racin´ USA Pt2 DLC, the new F-Retro Gen3 class featuring the Mclaren MP4/1C, the GTS variants of the Polo & Virtus to the TSI Cup class along with several other improvements, the most notable of which developments to the cockpit camera physics & related options.

    Below some important notes regarding the updates to the cockpit camera physics:

    • Before V1.3.3.0, the camera g-force effect was only enabled longitudinally (braking and acceleration), with no lateral g-force effect (from corners) or vertically (from bumps & suspension movement) even at 100% g-force setting; we have now added settings for lateral & vertical g-force effects like in AMS1.
    • Before V1.3.3.0, g-forces, leaning effect, and look to apex effects would only work in helmet camera mode - now these effects apply irrespective if you´re running helmet camera mode or not.
    • As of V1.3.3.0, TrackIR users are able to change the camera g-force.
    • Before V1.3.3.0, VR and trackIR users were forced to use the SMS legacy camera head movement mode. Now, VR and TrackIR users can enable our camera head movement mode in the camera settings screen if desired. It allows for example for the driving to align with the horizon in banked corners like Daytona's without having to resort to camera orientation. Note however that for existing profiles your previous VR settings are preserved, so nothing will change for you unless you decide to change it in camera settings screen.
    Below are the updated default camera settings - these however will only take effect if you create a new profile, if you do not want to create a new profile you can adjust these manually:


    V1.3.2.0 -> V1.3.3.0 CHANGELOG


    • Added Road America (part of the Racin´ USA Pt2 DLC pack)
    • Added F-USA Gen3 class featuring Reynard 2Ki, Lola B2K/00 (part of the Racin´ USA Pt2 DLC pack)

    • Made the helmet and cockpit cameras orientation change that comes from G-force effect be scaled by the G-force slider settings (previously only the camera position change was scaled, not the orientation)
    • Fixed in-game session details not accounting for session scaling in championship mode and rounding to multiples of 5 in multiplayer.
    • VR Camera Settings: Enabled legacy/new head movement toggle for VR users; World Movement renamed to 'Head Movement' (current user World Movement setting will be maintained and converted to an equivilent 'Head Movement' setting)

    • Default weather progression for official championships are now sync to race
    • Fixed an issue where default weather progression for official championships was extremely high (existing saves will revert to sync-to-race on load if out of range)

    • Adjusted engine wear increase with boost settings for F-Classic turbo engines & eeduced default wastegate setting to account for higher engine wear at higher settings
    • Increased hardcoded radius values for AI detection of corners ahead (this should fix some existing AI logic not triggering in some corners)
    • Added a AI series-specific radius check and distance ahead to look at before trying to overtake (customization per car type still to be implemented)

    Excited to try the improved camera options for trackIR, the inability to stop the horizon shaking in this mode has been my biggest complaint with the game…good work team AMS

    Brilliant. Cannot wait to give this a go. Horizon lock on banks had been on top of my AMS2 issues list.

    What are all these Cockpit G force and how are they related to motion compensation in VR? I hope this better not screw up.

    Exciting :)
    Looks like a great update. Really looking forward to trying out some of the updated default setups, and I'm glad you're keeping TrackIR users in mind.

    Great job team. I've decided to stick with the Legacy Head Movement while in VR, mostly cause I don't use (or like) Lock To Horizion (I set Head\World Movement to 0). Though it does appear there's a small graphical glitch in this menu.

    Otherwise F-USA Gen3 looks and feels nice, look forward to Gen1's release to round it out. Road America looks really nice, even though I've never been a fan of the track. And look forward to testing out the other content soon as I have more time. Keep it up!

    Both VW Polo/Virtus GTS show 1.0l engine, should be 1.4l. The "older" Polo/Virtus still show Inline 4 should be Inline 3.

    I managed to give a quick go during my lunch break. I need to change to legacy VR settings as the head movement was strange, but that's because I was in a rush, not a criticism.

    The cars look and feel very nice. They (FUSA Gen 3) seem twitchy-er than the Gen 2, but I didn't play with setup aside from front wing.

    I cannot wait for the skin masters to start putting together official 2000 season skins so I can pretend to be Joe Tanto in the movie Driven!!!!

    Road America looks gorgeous. Even with the comparably low resolution of my Oculus Rift, it is lush and bloody realistic looking.

    Well done!

    I'm not sure if my use case is the same as yours, but I just set all the camera settings to 0 or OFF in order to have motion compensation work as before. Try that first, then experiment with other settings.

    Great update, the autoclutch updates have made a big difference to me. One of my complaints was to see the clutch engage with cars like the GT3 and GTE, which ruined the immersion from weird sounds and lengthened gear shifts (slowing the car down on straights relative to other cars). Thanks a lot for fixing this annoying bug from project cars 2!
