Changelog:

iRacing UI:

  • Fixed an issue where users were getting Registered to the wrong Split when Spectating a multi-car event.

Simulation:

Race Control

  • Fixed an issue where a time-limited Race finish could sometimes not triggering at all.

AI Racing

  • AI Drivers have received additional training with the following vehicles:
    – – BMW M4 GT4
    – – Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport MR
  • AI Drivers have received additional training at the following tracks:
    – – Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps – Grand Prix Pits

New Damage Model

  • Adjustments have been made to improve the New Damage Model on opponent cars so that it more quickly matches the actual state recorded by the server.
    – – Most damage states received from the server are now applied to opponent cars immediately.
    – – The exception to this are damage states that would reattach wheels or car parts.
    – – – In these cases, the damage state change can be delayed. The reattachment of wheels or car parts will be delayed if the force involved in breaking the part was above a threshold. There is a low and a high threshold with separate delay times. More severe impacts will cause a longer delay, minor impacts will have no delay.
  • Fixed an issue where some car-on-car contacts were not creating incidents correctly.
  • Fixed an issue where Replays featuring cars that had the New Damage Model at the time and have since been reverted were not loading correctly.
    – – Now, whenever loading a Replay, the Simulator will always use the New Damage Model car if that car had ever used it before.
  • The allowable hyper-extended distance for the front wheels on all stockcars has been reduced to prevent wheels popping through the hood.
  • The allowable hyper-extended distance for the wheels on all open-wheeled cars has been reduced to prevent some odd flipping behavior.
  • The hyper-extended suspension will now be reset when a vehicle with this issue enters a pit stall.
    – – This reset, and possible car hop, should only trigger when there is a hyperextended wheel.
