iRacing 2021 Season 2 Patch 4 is now available

iRacing 2021 Season 2 Patch 4 is now available

The fourth patch for iRacing’s 2021 Season 2 has been deployed.

Following the New Damage Model enabled-disabled plotline, the enhanced crumble physics have been switched back on for the ARCA Menards Chevrolet Impala thanks to improvements in wheel strengths, break thresholds and damper limits.

For NASCAR fans, the gearing of the Cup Series Toyota Camry, Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and Ford Mustang have been tweaked when used on the Darlington Raceway, accounting for the reduced aerodynamic drag at this specific venue.

Kansas Speedway and Talladega Speedway have received signage updates, and our resident eNASCAR expert, Justin Melillo, predicts that could be to conform for the upcoming Pro Invitational esports rounds.

There is some big news for Logitech G923 owners, as the latest TruForce force feedback is now re-enabled, something that DiRT Rally 2.0 also recently implemented. The more games and platforms that support this, the better. The Thrustmaster “OneWheel” API has also been integrated, resolving various force feedback issues.

Elsewhere, there are refinements to the Race Series and Hosted Racing UIs. The full patch notes are listed below from the iRacing support forum.

IRACING SEASON 2 PATCH 4 CHANGELOG

iRACING UI: (5.13.01-2021-s2)

General

  • The clock in the UI banner has been made more visible when Dark Mode is active.

Race Series

  • The Event start dates have been added to the information displayed in the Season Schedule.
  • – This shows the start date for all weeks, regardless if they are completed or in progress.
  • The minimum number of participants required in order for a Ranked Session to go Official has been added to the Series Info panel.
  • – Remember, your Safety Rating is always effected by your performance in Ranked Sessions; and your iRating is only effected if the event has enough participants to go Official!
  • Fixed an issue where the displayed time of day word description (except Afternoon) did not match the actual time value for the Session info.
  • Fixed an issue where the Time of Day info bubble was not displayed correctly on a Series Schedule.

Hosted Racing

  • When creating a Hosted Session from an event on a Race Season Schedule, the correct time of day will now be carried over into the Hosted Session creation window.
  • Fixed an issue where setting a weight penalty for a given car was being automatically rounded to the nearest whole kilogram, regardless of units in use and actual value.
  • Fixed an issue where creating a Hosted Session from a Series Schedule was not carrying over the correct Time of Day settings.

Test Drive

  • When creating a Test Drive from a Series event, the correct time of day will now be carried over into the Test Drive creation window.

Leagues

  • When creating a League Team Race, the Grid Builder button is now correctly unavailable.

Paint Shop

  • Fixed an issue where an empty column could appear when selecting to change cars.

SIMULATION

Peripherals

  • A new Thrustmaster “OneWheel” API has been integrated.
  • – This API should resolve various force feedback issues. This update is automatic, no manual processes are required by users.
  • TrueForce support for Logitech wheels has been re-enabled.
  • – Users will need to manually force GHUB to upgrade to version 2021.3.5164 if you are already on version 2021.2.7359. See the following forum post for a guide on how to get Logitech TrueForce back up and running safely: https://members.iracing.com/jforum/posts/list/3801302.page

CARS

ARCA Menards Chevrolet Impala

  • The New Damage Model has been re-enabled for this vehicle on this environment!
  • For the New Damage Model, several adjustments have been made, including:

  • – Spring damper limits have been adjusted so they may occasionally collapse with appropriate damage.
  • – The break thresholds for many body mount points have been reduced.

Global Mazda MX-5 Cup

  • Preventative measures have been taken to halt rampant license plate thievery for this vehicle within the 3D Model Viewer.

Mercedes-AMG GT3
