Automobilista 2 Update V1.5.6.1

Reiza Studios deployed Update V1.5.6.1 for the Automobilista 2 racing simulator adding the new Brazilian Stock Car 2024 season and a completely overhauled F-Ultimate Gen2 car model, alongside general fixes and improvements for various parts of the game.

As indicated in the 2024 March Dev Update, both the F-Ultimate Gen2 and the Stock Car 2024 already feature the V1.6 tire physics developments with adjusted hysteresis (but only partially revised thermodynamics and wear) – generally speaking the updated tires should feel slightly “sharper” and less tolerant to sliding than previously. Both classes feature their 2024 respective DRS and Push-to-Pass rule updates, with DRS being allowed after lap 1 for the F-Ultimate Gen2 while the Stock Cars feature a higher number of shorter P2P boosts with no activation delay.

Still on the content front, following popular demand, the Betonschleife (aka “concrete circuit”) has been added as an option for the Historic Nürburgring, part of the Nürburgring DLC pack.

AMS2 V1.5.6 also features a much-improved water shader and 3D trees added near the trackside for several circuits and visible dust clouds from cars running over dirtier parts of the track, all components of the visual updates in progress for the V1.6 milestone update a few months from now.

Check out the changelog for all the details.
