New updates for both apps have gone live today. Both will auto update on Steam and Android, but stand-alone PC users will need to re-download and install again.

While the VRCE app has only a minor update...
- Increase scroll rate of text window for mouse-wheel users
- Minor bug fixes

...the SDT app has some nice additions...
- Added more info to Tires feedback if SDT2018 detects possible under or oversteer from temperatures (thanks to Rene Reid)
- Added clearer feedback to Tires feedback on when to move on to next step
- Added message to user to revert to previous setup, and move on, if last setup change did not reduce lap time (must use lap times logging for this to work)
- Added button to clear all tire temperatures
- Some additional tweaking to the German language translation thanks to Matthias MacKenzie
- Fix bug that prevented right-side camber advice from being displayed
- Fixed "Click for news" button not being cleared if you jump to topic
- Fixed translation of exit-prompt text

I have another update to VRCE2018 for you. This time around there are some nice additions. I hope you enjoy - Tim
- Added ride height, packers, brake bias, and aides (TC, ABS) to the car options and advice
- All advice now sorted by weight of impact. The higher on the list of advice, the larger the change will have on your setup. For more subtle changes, see advice lower on the list.
- Moved car setup options from Corner Wizard to SELECT menu
- Button placed on Corner Wizard to easily access car setup options
- Car options that are specific to a car type are hidden until that car type is selected (Touring Car, Stock Car)
- Increased size of top-menu and items for easier use on phones
- Added top-menu item "?" to access learning database (articles, glossary, discussion, etc)
- Minor fixes to font sizing and scaling

I've been working on an updated version of the Virtual Race Car Engineer recently. Before I finalize my list of additions I wanted to share them with you and get any input you may have. Here is the list so far:

+ Complete redesign of GUI
+ Much of the code re-written for CPU and memory efficiency
+ Added Sprint and Kart cars to car type selections
+ Added stagger to car advice options
+ Added qualifying specific advice
+ Added choice of testing, qualifying, or race session in "Select" menu
+ Added free flowcharts to app
+ Added "Delta" setting to adjust tire pressure and camber advice. (Lower setting = harder to hit tire pressure and camber advice targets)
+ Added CPU setting to adjust CPU load
+ App remembers the language, car, track, cpu, delta, and toggle choices from last use
+ Added "Clear Prefs" button to erase all saved car/track/toggle preferences
+ Added new format choice to how advice is delivered (just the simple UP or DOWN, for easy and fast reading)
+ Added ability to choose severity of condition (different advice based on how severe the condition)
+ Added ability to create your own language translations (edit file in Languages folder with any text editor)

Do you have a suggestion that you feel adds to VRCE? Tools to help people new and inexperienced in setting up a race car?
