Automobilista v1.4.5 is released - includes new free content as the Stock Car 2017 season & Curvelo race track are now included!
Below is the Changelog for v1.4.32 -> v1.4.5:
Added Curvelo circuit ("A" & "B" layouts) Added Stock Car Brasil 2017 series UPDATES & FIXES
Revised AI overtaking risk calculations - AI now constantly looks for a way past a slower car ahead (no longer backs off overtakes) * Revised & Expanded Push-to-Pass functionality, simulating Stock Car 2017 season (including windshield lights indicating activation / availability) AI now also uses P2P to overtake / defend from opponents Added new car-specific AI risk calculation parameters for overtaking - AI now factors corner radius ahead to decide whether to try switch lines to overtake Added new AI function to prevent AI car from trying to rejoin the track after a spin until there is no oncoming traffic AI now affected by grass / gravel grip levels & dirt on tires (it will lift a bit until tires are clean again) Added new controller damping sliders & presets for better keyboard & gamepad control ** Moved camera settings to DISPLAY UI screen, & added a "Lock to Horizon" slider (where 0% is pre-v1.4 setting, and 100% is latest setting) Added Garage UI warning message for series in which race refuelling is not allowed, & disabled HUD pit menu fuel adjustment for those series *** Several minor UI fixes & adjustments Adjusted audio occlusion, low pass & wind filters Adjusted AI drafting, slip reaction, aggression levels Changed default cockpit FOV from 50 to 45 degrees Adjusted traction control functionality (as a driving aid) Added PLR file setting to disable track scoreboards (known to cause some issues in live streaming) Track state regression between sessions & overnight reduced from 2% & 10% respectively to 1% & 5% Corrected excessive fuel consumption in Caterhams, MCR, Marcas, Lancers Updated sunrise/sunset lighting values for all tracks Updated Cadwell, Brands, Imola, VIR, Curitiba. Cascavel, Kansai, Velocittá, Taruma, Goiania, Spielberg, Santa Cruz, Guaporé, Londrina, Interlagos terrain & road textures to latest quality standard Minor road & curb updates at Curitiba, Tarumã, Goiania, Santa Cruz, Londrina, Interlagos to match their 2017 layouts Fixed F-Ultimate tire options for Interlagos, Kansai Karts: Fixed handling-breaking suspension bug from last hotfix MCR: Fixed RPM LEDs not working in left-hand driver side Camaro: Added 2017 Stock Car Safety Car skin * For this build Medium aggression is generally recommended for best AI racing; higher settings may be suitable for tin tops in which more bumping & rubbing is acceptable; Low aggression disables all new risk bypassing functions and effectively reverts to their pre v1.4.5 behavior with regards to overtaking.
** Users of digital inputs should review their settings for steering, throttle and brake rates.
*** All cars / tracks still allows race refuelling for all classes, so users looking to get around series refuelling rules should use that for both single & multiplayer races (be advised that AI fuel strategy for longer races may not be ideal).
Important note for Logitech G29 / G920 users: Support for auto rotation is still on a dedicated Beta Branch labeled v1.4.5_G29. Further instructions as to how to switch to a beta branch here.
