New Damage Model

Fixed the apparent root of the prevalent crash-to-desktop issues plaguing vehicles utilizing the New Damage Model.

This issue appears to have been caused by a corruption of the data when opponent wheels were being moderately to severely damaged, or when they were being reattached to a vehicle.

We are confident in the above fix. However, as a result of this fix, some sweeping updates have been made to our underlying tire attachment system. Because of this, we are taking the extra precaution of keeping the New Damage Model disabled on the following vehicles until we have had some proper time to re-balance their damage states. You can expect the New Damage Model to be re-enabled on these vehicles soon:

  • ARCA Menards Chevrolet Impala
  • NASCAR Chevrolet Monte Carlo - 1987
  • NASCAR Ford Thunderbird - 1987
  • Street Stock

Animation

Some opponent drivers' heads appeared to be missing. They have been found and successfully re-attached by our expert surgeons. There are only minor complaints of neck pain. Drivers using the following cars were effected:

  • Dallara F3
  • Dallara iR-01
  • Dallara IR18
  • [Legacy] Dallara DW12
  • [Legacy] Indycar Dallara - 2009

CARS:
