    Great work! Easily a top package in all of sim racing. Sad to see AMS come to an end, but so much to enjoy and excited to see what the future holds for Reiza. Here’s to a great 2018!

    We still have a few treats coming..... drift cars and one more dlc. Apparently the dlc will be branded content of some sort... I am curious to see which cars they are creating!

    Amazing, amazing stuff! Thank you!
    Hopefully this will become the most popular sim, because it already is the best one. It definitely deserves more recognition

    Thanks so much Reiza!
    So with this final and fantastic build still some cars in replays don't have drivers with moving arms but anyway. :p

    Thanks again.
    Cheers

    Is there a way to configure the "Tow to pits" time?

    This is a feature i have been wishing to have for a long time and will make online racing much closer to real racing

    You can choose between semi realistic and realistic times in the options

    Yes i noticed that but i wanted to know if we can change the time so that if you press ESC you can´t go back to the track again in that session.

    eg. you crash in qualify and cannot get back to the track. In a 15minute qualify you could make it 15min tow time.

    This tow time is already a GREAT IMPROVEMENT to simracing!! :)

    Yes, tow time is a nice addition. On the 'semi-realistic' setting it costs about 3 minutes on average before you can drive again; it depends on the distance to the pits. I think thats about enough punishment. On realistic it's about double that time. I don't think tow time depends on damage (yet), adding repair time could then just be added on top of the tow time.

    I tried limit tyre sets (3), works well for some cars, but there may be a bug when there are multiple compounds, i.e. F1U or F1C. When pressing the information button 'i', the current tyre is suddenly not designated as 'new' anymore, and then you can press arrow right for a new set, even beyond the limitation number. And when pressing the left arrow going back to earlier sets, some compounds are not available anymore (at one instance only hard compounds could be selected). So it may need some finetuning. The best thing about it is that you can test tyre degradation with breaks in between.

    Tried an official multiplayer race, but I was the only driver so couldn't test the ranking :(:). Cool kart track. Number of tyre sets was indicated as 'default', but what does that mean? Unlimited?

    Thanks a lot for all the updates.
