Recommended Posts

Ci avviciniamo a grandi passi verso il prossimo grande aggiornamento di build per iRacing. Siamo attualmente nella settimana 11 della stagione 4 del 2022, quindi tra due settimane potremo guidare la build della stagione 1 2023.

Al momento non abbiamo ancora alcuna conferma di nuovi contenuti, ma da oggi sappiamo che entrambe le classi GT3 e LMP2 riceveranno corposi aggiornamenti, come al solito prima dell'evento principale dell'inverno, l'iRacing 24 Ore di Daytona. Inoltre arriverà a breve una diversa classificazione delle auto per includere la BMW M Hybrid V8 LMDh, come indicato all'inizio del video.

iRacing ha collaborato con piloti GT3 reali per l'imminente aggiornamento delle GT3, con aggiornamenti che includeranno una revisione completa del modo in cui si comportano le auto, incluso un nuovo modello di pneumatici, pastiglie dei freni, regole e feeling generale. Il modello iRacing New Damage sarà implementato su tutte le auto GT3, un sistema ancora in lavorazione, ma un passo nella giusta direzione rispetto a tutte le auto ancora sul modello precedente.

In particolare con il Nurburgring Nordschleife, il pacchetto di regole reali verrà applicato per tutte le auto con un requisito di altezza minima. iRacing spera di avvicinare il proprio prodotto all'azione reale sia nel modo in cui si guida che nei tempi sul giro.

Per quanto riguarda le gomme, saranno un'esperienza completamente nuova. Gli pneumatici avranno "una sensazione più nitida e più reattiva" andando avanti, così come un "limite più chiaramente definito", presumibilmente quando si tratta di cose come aderenza e usura degli pneumatici. Verranno implementate anche le nuove pastiglie dei freni.

Il modo in cui le persone guidano le auto influirà anche sulla durata degli pneumatici, influenzando cose come la temperatura e il profilo di usura. Il video cita che se si abusa di un asse più dell'altro, l'auto risponderà con una perdita di prestazioni su quel lato dell'auto.

Molti di questi aggiornamenti con il modo in cui funzionano le gomme dipenderanno sia dalla pista che dal clima. Il video ha menzionato che le auto saranno più pesanti, quindi anche questo farà parte del modo in cui l'auto si comporta. È un degrado più progressivo del pneumatico. Andando oltre, anche le gomme non dureranno così a lungo, durando solo per un singolo stint rispetto agli anni precedenti in cui le gomme potevano durare più stint. In alcuni casi non sarà garantito che durino per un pieno di carburante. I setup già preparati saranno sicuramente inutilizzabili ed iRacing consiglia di utilizzare le configurazioni di base che saranno incluse nell'aggiornamento.

Il bilanciamento delle prestazioni (BoP) verrà ottimizzato e le diverse auto della classe GT3 si comporteranno in modo diverso a seconda degli stili di guida. Durante il pit stop di queste vetture, il cambio gomme e il rifornimento avverranno contemporaneamente. In sostanza le strategie saranno completamente diverse.

Come per le vetture GT3, anche sulla Dallara P217 LMP2 sarà abilitato il New Damage Model. Con il modo in cui l'auto si comporterà con il proprio aggiornamento delle gomme, la vettura sarà in grado di superare dossi e cordoli in modo molto più conforme in quanto avrà anche una migliore comprensione del limite di aderenza.

Ci saranno aggiornamenti di peso e potenza che essenzialmente rallenteranno la macchina, rendendo i tempi sul giro più realistici e conformi alla realtà. Non resta che attendere ancora pochi giorni....

SIMULATION:

Active Reset

A new feature is now available for iRacing, Active Reset!

Active Reset allows a driver in a solo offline session to set a single save point for their car state with a key press (Save Start Point). Then, the driver can create an end point, which loads the save point with another key press (Run).

- - When a save point is loaded (Run), the Simulator restores the saved car state into the Session. This includes all possible parameters for the car, such as: fuel amount, speed, RPM, precise car position and wheel rotation, tire wear, damage states, hybrid system values, etc. However, the world state is not reloaded - time continues normally despite reloading a previous car state. All world parameters other than the dynamic track state remain as they are, such as track temperature, weather, and air temperature, and telemetry continues on the normal linear path.

- - - - Active Reset works to automatically blend your current control inputs with those of the Save Start Point, to create a smooth transition experience.

Additionally, when Run is triggered, a new Custom Sector is created between the Save Start Point and the end point created on the track. White checkerboard pattern lines are placed across the track at the start and end of the Custom Sector.

- - For Active Reset, the delta bar reflects your performance through the Custom Sector. It is auto-enabled and selected along with a new delta box when a new Custom Sector is set for the first time.

- - - - The new Custom Sector delta box in the UI can be cycled through - like the all-time/session best, etc. The functionality for Custom Sector is similar, with Current, Last, and Best attempts listed.

- - Active Reset does not have any default key controls bound - be sure to select your desired keys in the Controls tab of the Options Menu.

If you wish to override the default Custom Sector Start and End Points that are set automatically when Active Reset is used, you can use the “Custom Sector Mark Start/End Point" controls available in the options menu.

- - This will allow you to set 3 important points on the track: Active Reset Start Point, Custom Sector Start Point, and Custom Sector End Point. Using the 4th control (Active Reset Run) allows you to go back to the beginning of these 3 points and practice again!

Some additional helpful information:

- - Holding down the Active Reset Run control will apply the Saved Start Point, but then pause the Simulator until you release it, allowing you to adjust your control inputs if desired.

- - Whenever a save point is loaded with Active Reset Run, the Current Lap attempt data is invalidated.

- - The Active Reset Save is cleared if the user enters the Garage.

- - The Custom Sector Checkpoint lines are not visible in Replays, and only the next checkpoint you will cross is visible at any time. Custom Sector Checkpoint lines are only visible if Custom Sector “Best Mode” is selected (default).

- - There is a 1.5 second cooldown period between the Save and Run actions.

- - There is a 4 meter minimum Custom Sector length.

- - By default, the Custom Sector Start Point is set 2 meters in front of the Active Reset Start Point. This can be ideal for practicing launches, as your attempt will not be timed until you launch!

 

Physics

Physics behavior related to wall-riding has been improved.

- - Dragging along a wall at various speeds and for various durations with all types of cars should more realistically penalize the driver.

 

Tire Model

Fixed a couple of bugs with saving and restoring tire states across certain session transitions, getting in/out of car transitions, as well as during team events when a driver change is made without also changing tires. These bugs could cause more tire degradation, and/or cause an incorrect change to the tire conditioning state.

Track Surface Model

A new dynamic track surface parameter system is now enabled: Track Polish!

- - Track Polish is the process by which an asphalt track’s surface is slowly polished by the tires running over its surface, smoothing the aggregate asphalt. This happens most often along the racing line, where many thousands of tires pass by. Depending upon tire conditioning and weather conditions, this can affect racing.

Track Polish has been implemented in such a way to affect racing as follows:

- - When racing on or near the racing line, grip should be roughly the same as it has been. However, as your move away from the optimal racing line, grip will gradually reduce in dry conditions.

- - Track Polish does not include other factors such as track age or rubber depositing on the track surface - Track Polish is independent of other track surface properties.

Track Polish is only enabled for Road Courses at the present time.

 

Soft Surface Model

The physics properties for soft surfaces and how tires interact with them have been updated.

- - All types of off-track soft surfaces now behave with more realism - grass, dirt, gravel, and sand are all softer and allow tires to sink into the surface slightly. These surfaces are all more naturally bumpy than their previous versions.

- - Rallycross and Dirt Oval and Dirt Road racing surfaces remain unaffected by these changes, as they already have track surface properties.

 

Pit Stop

Fixed an issue where team members, spotters, and spectators were not always seeing the pit speed limit in the interface.

 

Hybrid Systems

The logic for hybrid system deployment has been adjusted to improve performance when the player is on the throttle earlier than expected.

 

Team Racing

Fixed an issue where an extra set of tires could sometimes be consumed during a driver-swap if a driver teammate connected after the Race had already started and they took over the driving duties when the team had only consumed a single set of tires so far.

Fixed some errors found in our AI System code, including:

- - AI Drivers now utilize the correct stall for Lone Qualifying Sessions.

- - AI Drivers using vehicles with the Old Damage Model were not always getting contact incidents correctly.

 

New Damage Model

Friction energy calculations and parameters have been updated.

The algorithms for preventing mesh snagging for dirt tires on uneven ground surfaces have been updated.

Updated how energy is used by the particles and effects systems so they are more consistent.

Fixed an issue where some cars were incorrectly entering the world with failing setups.

Fixed an issue where some collisions were generating far more energy than they should have.

Fixed the occurrence of some erratic values for suspension and spring forces.

 

Graphics

For the SpeedTree system, added self-shadowing and upgraded to the latest version.

Fixed an issue where some fence textures could be rendered opaque when using certain shader settings.

Fixed an issue where brake glow was carried over from previous sessions.

Fixed some Graphics Options tooltips.

 

Visual Effects

Lighting for particle effects have been improved.

The PopcornFX system version has been updated.

 

Custom Paint Schemes

A new vehicle texture layer has been added to all vehicles which simulates an acrylic clear coat for all custom paint schemes.

- - This new texture layer allows you to put a clear shell over the existing paint scheme of the car with its own specular qualities separate from the underlying material. This is meant to replicate automotive paint jobs where the underlying car paint is overlaid with an acrylic clear coat.

- - To implement this on your custom paint schemes, adjust the blue channel on your existing specular maps (this channel in our spec maps was previously unused). This works in a very similar way to the green roughness channel that you may use currently to determine how shiny or dull the pixel will be. The shininess is determined by the color value of the pixel in the channel, across a spectrum of intensity.

- - The color values for this channel are as follows:

- - - - 0 to 15 RGB (black) = no clear coat

- - - - 16 RGB (nearly black) = 100% reflectivity, very shiny

- - - - 255 RGB (white) = 0% reflectivity, no shine

- - For existing Custom Paint Schemes, the value for this channel was 255 RGB, providing you with a fully shiny acrylic clear coat. To keep the pre-2023 Season 1 look for your Custom Paint Schemes, you will need to set this channel to have a 0 RGB value.

- - - - All of our Custom Car Paint Scheme Templates have been updated with this season's release to have the blue channel set to a 0 RGB value.

 

Audio

Harmonics have been added to the LFE effects to make them easier to feel on certain smaller shakers.

Some crash sounds for some New Damage Model impacts and events have been improved.

Fixed an issue that could have caused LFE and TrueForce effects to accidentally play when outside of the car in rare instances.

 

Spotter

The Ari Cejas - Spanish spotter pack has been updated.

- -  Many thanks to Ari Cejas!

 

Controls

For the F9 Black Box, the key repeat up/down spin controls have been updated to match the rest of the black boxes.

- - Now pressing and holding down one of the buttons with your mouse will cause the value to increment continuously rather than needing to repeatedly click the mouse. This does not change the behavior of the black boxes “increment selected control” button mapping. That will continue to rely on keyboard key repeat behavior. The upshot is that if you map those to a button on a joystick you still won't get any key repeat behavior in any black box.

Fixed a bug that could show the wrong input on the options screen when switching from a joystick to mouse input on the steering or throttle controls. This did not affect the car when driving.

 

Force Feedback (FFB)

Some adjustments have been made to help make the Sim more safe.

- - The bump stops are now limited to a minimum of 10 degrees up from 0.5 degrees.

- - The ability to turn off the force limiter that suppresses signals in a crash has been removed.

- - Customers with inverted FFB signals have been reset, and the ability to invert the FFB signal via the “app.ini” file has been removed.

- - - - A warning dialog will appear if a user had their FFB signal inverted prior to this update. If you receive this warning, it is important that you contact customer support immediately so we can work out why it was set. Users that had this set will be unable to use the Simulator until this is fixed, as their wheel could spin out of control the next time you enter the car.

A limiter and damper to the FFB signal has been added that activates when it detects the wheel is spinning out of control. When activated a pink bar will appear at the top-end of the F-Meter with its length indicating the percentage of cut and damping being applied to the signal. You can also monitor this by watching the telemetry variable: “SteeringWheelLimiter”.

- - This safety feature will not activate during normal driving.

A new low-pass smoothing filter has been added for the force feedback signal.

- - By default this is setup to remove unwanted high frequency noise from the signal before downsampling and sending it off to the wheel. But by increasing the value you can further smooth out the signal at the expense of a little added latency. Note that this can not be used to stop your wheel from oscillating - in fact the more smoothing you add the more likely it is to oscillate. You can set the smoothing value to 0 to turn it off completely and return to the old behavior.

Linear mode is now the default for the force feedback effects. Non-linear mode is useful for weaker wheels like the Logitech G29, but linear mode works better for stronger wheels.

Some damping has been added to the end stops so the wheel is less likely to bounce off of them. Also no longer cut the end stop force when in a wreck.

 

Accessibility

The allowable range for audio sliders for drivers with a hearing disability may now be increased beyond the normal range.

- - If you need help setting up accessibility options, please contact Customer Service.

 

Sporting Code

Race Start behavior has been better defined, including information about abbreviated starts, and rolling starts for Start Zones, Ovals, and Road courses.

New Glossary entries have been added for Start Zone and Super Session.

 

iRACING UI:

--------------------------------------------------------------

Series Stats & Standings

A new home has been created for Series Stats & Standings in the iRacing UI!

A brand new Series Stats page can be found in the Results & Stats section by clicking on the “Series Stats & Standings" button on the side-bar. Here, you can find all of the iRacing Stats you have been accustomed to browsing through on the Classic Membersite.

- - Four Series cards are presented at the top of the page to provide users with quick access to their most recently run Series.

- - Below this, there is an overall list view of all Series for deeper browsing, complete with search functionality.

Clicking on a Series opens the Stats modal window for that Series.

- - You can browse all event types that exist for the selected Series, including Overall Season, Time Trial, and Qualify.

- - Filters are available for narrowing your search by Week, Club, and Division.

- - You can also view past Season Stats for the Series.

 

General

The process for loading and processing dynamically generated 2D images in the UI has been updated. These images include car paints and helmets of all sizes and for all areas of the UI, including the paint shop, AI Racing, Results, My Content, etc.. This does not include the full 3D models - only 2D images.

Fixed an issue where the iRacing Formula iR-04 and iRacing Superspeedway were being sorted to the bottom of lists due to their lower-case lettering.

The systems used for Favorites of all types have been updated and improved.

 

Content

For content lists, fixed an issue where content was not being sorted correctly by Release Date. This fixes the release dates for all content.

 

iRacing Credits

iRacing Credits will now expire 24 months after they have been granted to an account. See our announcement on the iRacing Forums here: https://forums.iracing.com/discussion/32499/iracing-credits-expiration-policy-iracing-credits-expire-two-years-after-they-are-granted#latest

- - This policy has no effect on iRacing Dollars, which never expire. iRacing Credits can be used to make a large variety of purchases, and users can adjust their purchase settings so that iRacing Credits are spent before other types of currency.

 

Filters

Whenever active filters are causing no data to be displayed, a message informing the user of this is shown and a button is provided to clear the filters.

- - This is a new and different behavior than if no actual data exists to be displayed (such as if no Hosted Sessions are running at all).

By default, new iRacing users will have their Official Sessions filtered to only display Races for which they are eligible to join.

 

Series

A new tab has been added to the Series modal window: Series Stats.

- - This tab provides you with the full set of the Series Stats & Standings details for that Series.

A button has been added at the top-right of the Series modal window that links to the related iRacing forum for the Series.

The “Info” and “Paint” buttons are now readily available on the Car Card.

AI Racing

When creating an AI Opponent Roster, fixed the error message that is displayed if illegal characters are used for the AI Opponent Roster’s Name.

- - Legal characters include: alpha-numeric, space, dash, underscore, comma, and period.

 

Leagues

Removed a “Send PM” toggle from Leagues.

 

Test Drive

Improved some title language for Session Settings.

 

Paint Shop

Paint Shop sponsor, Engine Ice, has been removed

 

CARS:

--------------------------------------------------------------

<Car Class> GT3 Cars

The New Damage Model is now enabled for these cars!

- - Along with the tuning of car damage properties, strengths, and damage thresholds, any wheels with significant damage will also now be fully replaced during a pit stop.

Standardized rub blocks have been added to all GT3 class cars, to ensure balanced interactions with racing surfaces and curbs.

Tire parameters have been updated. These changes will allow cars to complete just one fuel stint on a set of tires at most tracks.

A brake system update has standardized maximum input forces for all cars so that 100 kg is 100%. Brake pad friction levels for the three pad options have been shifted so that the old low friction pad is now the new medium.

Car performance balance has been improved across the GT3 Car Class.

Steering ratio adjustment ranges and the number of differential clutch plates have been unified across the GT3 Car Class.

Pit Stop procedures have been updated to allow cars to take fuel and tires simultaneously instead of sequentially.

For more detailed information, check out our video on Youtube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L0z95xIR_EQ

Fuel burn no longer occurs when the engine is running but the throttle is closed. This eliminates any fuel-saving benefit of clutching or cycling the ignition in the car.

Mass and power increases along with aerodynamic model fine-tuning will render most legacy setups obsolete.

iRacing setups have been updated.

A full artwork overhaul, including new surface bumpmaps, models, textures, and terrain has been completed at this track!

Laid out on the runways of a World War II air base and the adjacent roadways, Sebring International Raceway is the oldest permanent road-racing circuit in the United States. It hosted its first race on New Year's Eve, 1950, a six-hour handicap event won by a diminutive Crosley Hotshot two-seat roadster. The first "12-Hour Grand Prix of Endurance" was held two years later, and for several years Sebring was the site of America's only real international races. In 1959 Sebring was the site of the first United States Grand Prix before the event found a permanent home at Watkins Glen. For nearly 60 years the world's top racers have competed for victory at this storied track nestled in central Florida's orange groves.
