Wet weather update for Automobilista 2

Following on from the v.1.1.1.0 major update at the end of January and the subsequent hotfix update of v1.1.1.1 from last week here is another significant development from Reiza Studios.

v1.1.1.3 is labelled as a small update but brings big changes to how physics and AI behave in wet weather conditions. The updates claim to correct “various performance inconsistencies across all cars under the various combinations of tires and wetness saturation levels.”- seems pretty significant to us.

Outside of the large weather-based changes, there isn’t too much to get excited about. A couple of small art tweaks and minor physics and setup changes you’re unlikely to notice but keep going towards the ultimate goal of creating the most advanced racing simulation for Automobilista 2’s development team.

If you’re looking to take the new upgrades for a spin, Steam should push this automatically to your PC next time you sign in.

Changelog / Update Notes (v 1.1.1.3)

UI & HUD

  • Fixed Time Trial info incorrectly hiding current lap time in live sessions
  • Adjusted element/text size of audio device and controller model selection inputs to better suit long names
  • Exposing assignments for Gear 7 & 8 and Telemetry HUD mode switching
  • Added GT1 and G40C to vehicle filter definitions

PHYSICS

  • Further substantial reduction of slick adhesion on a wet track
  • Further adjustments to wet tires for various cars
  • Disabled legacy manifold pressure function (now solely using our own AMS1-based throttle mapping to adjust throttle response for each engine)
  • Disabled redundant legacy function applying aero torque to the frontend when car was airborne (could cause cars to nosedive after getting airborne)
  • Further adjusted aero draft effects
  • Corrected tire tread dimensions for Copa Classic, F-Trainer
  • Fixed error in Group A / Procar front tire tread
  • Fixed error in F-Ultimate tires speed effect
  • Adjusted tire tread optimal temperature range for Caterhams, ARC Camaro, Copa Truck
  • Further adjustments to dry tire falloff rates on wet surface (including grooved / road tires)
  • Minor default setup adjustments for Metalmoro AJR, Sigma P1, Metalmoro MRX, Roco 001, Mclaren 570S, Mclaren 720S GT3, Mercedes AMG GT3, Porsche GT3-R, Porsche Cup & all Copa Classic cars (setup reset recommended)
  • Metalmoro AJR: Small aero revisions; adjusted engine compression curves for Nissan V6 & Honda Turbo variants; Disabled redundant DRS icon for Nissan V6 & Honda turbo variants
  • Slightly reduced crankshaft mass for F-Trainers, MCR, ARC Camaro (less engine inertia)
  • F-Retro: Small aero revisions to all cars
  • Disabled AJR DRS icon for V6, Honda variants
  • Reduced F1 pitstop tire change timings

AI

  • Added car-specific overrides for AI performance on a wet track (on slicks & wet tires) & added new parameter to callibrate AI performance with wet tires on a drying track
  • Further AI callibration passes
  • Further slightly reduced AI CoG height scale to minimise chances of AI cars rolling over high curbs
  • Slightly raised AI lateral movement rate for overtaking & passing boosts (to mitigate getting stuck on straights)
  • Slightly reduced AI braking point offset
  • Reduced AI lifting off throttle over puddles to 50%
  • Slightly increased range of performance from AI drivers

TRACKS

  • Nurburgring: Minor art pass & fixes
  • Revised VR trackside cams at Silverstone & Spa-Francorchamps to disable DOF blur (ongoing process to be applied to all tracks)
  • Further weather probability adjustments (slightly less rain in rainy locations)

VEHICLES

  • Fixed missing wiper animations on Ginetta G40 Cup & Ginetta G55 GT4
  • Added Dirt/Scratch map for F-Retros, Lotus 72E, Mclaren M23 & Brabham BT44
  • Analogue gauges now light up when lights are on
