2021 Season 3 Patch 2 Changelog:

iRacing UI: (05.13.22-2021-S3)

General

  • Fixed an issue where the iRacing UI could sometimes throw an error regarding a failure to initialize.
  • Fixed a rare issue where the iRacing UI could fail to load, and users were presented with a blank screen.

Test Drive

  • Fixed an issue where the Car selection was empty when creating a Test Drive from a Hosted Session that included multiple cars.

Leagues

  • Resolved an issue where viewing the Announcements tab of the League Modal was causing an error.

League Standings

  • We have changed the timing of drops from league standings.
  • – – Leagues had been required to specify the number of races to count towards the season championship and drops would start occurring when more than that number of races was completed. Now, leagues are required to specify the number of races to be dropped and the drops will start occurring when there are more than that number of races completed. In other words, drops are applied as soon as possible rather than as late as possible.
  • – – A conversion has been applied to switch leagues from “number of races to count” to “number of races to drop”.  However this will only have functioned correctly if the league has scheduled every race for the season. Leagues dropping races from their season(s) will need to verify that the number of drops is correct.

League Points

  • Drivers disqualified from league races by the system (i.e. for exceeding incident limits) have been receiving zero points. Now they will receive the points for their finishing position.
  • – – Drivers disqualified by an admin will still receive 0 points.
  • – – Drivers who registered for but did not start a race have been receiving points for their “finishing” position. They will now receive 0 points.

Team Racing

  • Team registration will now correctly report an error if the person is registering a team with themselves as a declared driver and they already have registered a different team with themselves as a declared driver.

Simulation:

Cars

  • The Display page settings are now selectable when running any car using a Fixed Setup.

Rendering

  • Fixed an issue where the player’s car could jerk around (mostly forwards and backwards) when being viewed in the Replay while still in the Session, and while the player’s car was not the camera’s focus car.
  • Fixed an issue where some crowds were so persistent to watch the races they would not leave, even when disabled in the Options menu. These crowds were present at the following tracks:
  • – – Chicago Street Circuit
  • – – Silverstone Circuit
  • – – Snetterton Circuit
  • – – Southern National Motorsports Park
  • – – Volusia Speedway Park
  • – – Wild West Motorsports Park
  • – – Williams Grove Speedway

Visual Effects

  • The rate of rubber build-up on car body panels has been reduced.

Cameras

  • The “Relaxed Camera View” may now be used with the roll bar and nose cameras in addition to the near and far chase and driving cameras. This is an advanced Hosted Session option that allows you to use page up/down to cycle between cameras while driving if enabled for your session.

Admin Commands

  • New Admin commands have been added: !pitclose and !pitopen.
  • – – !pitclose = Manually closes pit entrances during Green Flag racing.
  • – – !pitopen = Manually opens pit entrances during Green Flag racing.
  • – – – – These commands can be used for purposes such as closing the pit lanes early prior to throwing a competition caution.

Controls

  • Fixed a calibration issue that could make it difficult to set a dead-zone when calibrating the brake pedal.
