    I've noticed messages like this in the changelogs:
    • F-Vee: Reduced baseline steering lock by 1.5 deg
    So I'm wondering: how should I change the in-game value in order to get a desired steering ratio for a given car? It makes it slightly complicated that the steering rotation of the individual cars is not displayed anywhere in the game, so I always have to check that inside the car, but anyway.

    AFAIK the formula for calculating steering ratio is:
    steering ratio = steering rotation / ( steering lock * 2 )

    so for example, for a 12:1 steering ratio I have to set:
    12 = 900° rotation / (37.5° steering lock * 2)
    12 = 720° rotation / (30° steering lock * 2)
    12 = 540° rotation / (22.5° steering lock * 2)
    ... and so on.

    But what is this "baseline steering lock" and how does the calculation work in AMS2?

    I suppose "baseline steering lock" equals "default setup steering lock"

    But that 1.5 deg adjustment is interesting, because the UI uses integers, that's why I thought the in-game value is just some sort of multiplier.

    Oh, now I see your point.
    I don't know strictly the terms but maybe they're referring to steer ratio and this way the decimals make sense.
    All I can say is these data are used by RST (telemetry setup app) as parameters and steering ratio is referred there as steer lock. ;) This way, I can assure you that Reiza change DOR of "all" cars in a high frequency over each build/update. Since steering lock at standard setup seldom varies, it was common (before 1.3) that steer ratio changes from 0.1 till 1.0
    Really, 1.5 is noticeable.
