* Fix for bad LUT for pixel formats
* DX11 – minor fix for constructor init missing some textures

* Implement distortion rendering support/ Bonnet capture
* HDRControl WIP
* Fixup cached shader loading
Tracks:
* Volusia: Updated texture maps with more details
Vehicles:
* BMW M3 E30 Group A: windscreen reflections dds texture – new texture replacing placeholder texture (not yet in game)
* BMW M3 E30 Group A: Fixed materials, added CPIT paint material to LODA-C chassis

* Formula Gulf FG1000: Cockpit texturing complete (bug on the steering wheel display)

Build 554 (3/9/13, Team Member+)

Weather System:
* Change to code so the decompression buffer uses what ever space is left in the main buffer
Steam-based multiplayer WIP:
* Implemented session browser filters
* Sessions that are not in lobbies are no longer closed for join, because Steam hides closed sessions from browsing. Game logic still won’t allow players to join them though. This is temporary dev-only change
Common:
* Clear optimisations enabled on PC – SLI still clears colour as well as depth (RVM/Envmaps and Phase1)
* Deferred Rendering Helper – add separate toggle for shadow update. This allows the lit particles to use shadow but not repeat the phase2 fullscreen – saves about 5% GPU time
WiiU:
* WiiU clear target optimisations + target resolution optimisations
GUI:
* Added formation lap session name text to the DB
Tracks:
* Volusia: Reworked ground cover, tweaked terrain, more track edges lofted, reworked lake area, merged latest stuff of TomT and JanP

Physics:
* Updated swap of debug render buffers
* Updated code around cleanups of double-buffered data
* Updated ToolsPhysics to use common double buffer template
Common:
* Added autofocus and autozoom camera params for LiveEdit modification
* Removed some clashing defines of UNUSED as they don’t seem to be needed
WiiU:
* WiiU Transform Bounds implemented in assembly
Audio:
* Ariel V8 has independent incar and external engine sets (based on the same Hayabusa engine in the V8-RS), plus an AI version. Update also includes the latest sound events such as int/ext gearshifts, wobbles backfires/splutters and distant roll offs and my latest trajectory values. I also added this new trajectory to the Racer V8-RS. The BMW M1 AI are quieter from the M1 cockpit (as requested) but the same amplitude from trackside. The Ariel V8 and Racer V8-RS have a better limiter sound and onset.
Tracks:
* Dubai: Additional textures for scenery and assets
* Volusia: New textures
Vehicles:
* Pirault Mega SR: Animation files. Faster wipers animation
* Ford Forcus RS: Animation files. Faster Wipers animations. Minor Fix on Wipers Loda mapping
