(MST/ - Automobilista Motorsports Simulator von Reiza Studios hat sich durch konsequente Aktualisierungen und regelmäßige inhaltliche Erweiterungen längst von einem Geheimtipp zur geschätzten PC-Rennsimulation entwickelt. Mit dem jüngsten Patch stellen die Entwickler ein eindrucksvolles Update zur Verfügung das sowohl neue Features (Custom Season Tool), Spielinhalte (F-Ultimate-Serie, kostenpflichtiges Strecken-Add-on) als auch sehr viele Verbesserungen (Samplingqualität der Audiodateien optimiert) und Bugfixes enthält.

Das Änderungsprotokoll zur Version 1.4.0/1.40 fällt entsprechend lang aus. Darin verzeichnet sind auch mehr als ein Dutzend Optimierungen im Bereich der AI die noch besseres virtuelles Racing versprechen. Zudem wurden die Strecken Interlagos, Montreal, Kansai, Spielberg um die 2017er Layouts erweitert und in diesem Zusammenhang die Regeln für die zu verwendenden Reifenmischungen und die DRS-Zonen aktualisiert.


Vorgestellt mit dem Hockenheimring-Release-Trailer, ist zudem nun auch die "Legendary Tracks Part 3: Hockenheim"-Erweiterung bei Steam für 5.99 EU erhältlich. Diese versammelt vier unterschiedliche Versionen der badischen Rennstrecke aus den Jahren 1977, 1988, 2001 und 2016 mit den modernen Layouts (National, Short A and B). Die Rallycross-Streckenkonfiguration wird in wenigen Tagen nachgereicht.

u#Automobilista - V1.40-Changelog:#u
-Added Hockenheimring (1977, 1988, 2001 and 2016, along with extra modern layouts - the Rallycross layout will be added shortly) (AVAILABLE ONLY FOR HOCKENHEIM OR SEASON PASS OWNERS)
-Added F-Ultimate series

-Added Custom Season Tool (available as a launch option on Steam) *

-Fixed bug with AA setting not saving in AMS Config
-Downscaled series icons in main menu series selection by 20% and changed layout from 3 x 7 to 3 x 8;
-Added new Main Menu ordering parameter to SRS files and re-ordered positions for F-Ultimate and Lancer Cup Series
-Various minor UI fixes and adjustments
-Adjusted orientation rate in all cockpit cameras to better absorb track oscillations vs the horizon
-Updated all helmet shaders to be same as the one used for car paint
-Fixed bug in roadnoise replay saving (fixing potential CTD)
-Added new driver model and new customized suits and gloves to all vehicles
-Added configuration option to all vehicles for visible driver arms in cockpit view **
-Fixed bug with radio spotter announcing final lap one lap ahead of time in timed races
-Fixed error in fog logic which could cause fog to appear in cockpit
-Added function to discard next lap in Time Trial mode if track limits are abused in the preceding lap
-Fixed bug that could cause FFB to be lost if instant replay command was hit during a multiplayer event
-Globally increased lowest LOD from 500 meters to 600m

-All audio files resampled to 44.1kHz (decreasing files size / cpu / memory usage)
-increased max simultaneous sounds from 32 to 64
-polished loops and pops in several audio files
-Introduced advanced audio filters for external cameras
-Added cockpit muffling for closed cockpit cars
-Opponents volume setting is no longer effective for trackside cameras (all cars same volume)
-Enhanced replay of surface sounds (roadnoise, dirt, curbs)
-Added new options to Audio menu for master volume, trackside volume, Audio PostFX levels and button to restore default audio settings
-Minor adjustments to audio samples on Ultima Race, F-V12, F-Trainer
-Reset volume multipliers on all cameras to address volume inconsistencies

-Added function to stop AI from refuelling during pitstops in all series where that is forbidden - only series that allow AI to refuel now are StockV8, SuperV8, F-V12, F-V10, Metalmoro, Boxer Cup and All Cars / Tracks; for custom long distance events with any of the other series where -AI would need to refuel, user should run All Cars / Tracks; likewise for proper AI race strategy with non-refuelling series running close to their default full distance, user should use the respective series instead of All Cars / Tracks
-Added function for AI to partially lift off the throttle when receiving a blue flag - their cooperation is now a function of "Courtesy" value in driver RCD files, and thus will vary from driver to driver and from series to series; they will generally be equally cooperative in practice / quali, in races they will be more cooperative in high profile series compared to smaller / historical ones
-Added function for AI to coast to the pits after checkered flag (rather than racing on at full speed)
-Added function for AI to slightly lift during in and out laps in practice / quali
-Added function for AI to lift back to the pits when car has substantial aerodynamic damage
-Added function to prevent AI from lurching to the side on starts and generally improved their composure through the first corner
-Adjusted AI awareness to get them to hesitate less when trying to overtake another car in a straight (very minor adjustment for now to avoid side effects)
-Revised AI tire wear functions and added custom pit thresholds for every tire compound in every car to minimise issues with AI needlessly stopping for tires
-Added AI function to stop them from pitting for tires in last 10 minutes of a race - even if they cross their tire wear threshold they will soldier on for the remaining distance rather than doing a costly late-race pitstop
-Customized AI throttle functions at race start to a realistic behavior for each series
-Changed AI reaction time to green lights so it´s no longer instantaneous but within a more human range of 0.1s-1.0s
-Added new TireManagement and AIStartSkill to driver RCD files - the lower the first value, the more the AI will wear its tires; the lower the 2nd value the more chance AI driver will bog down at the start
-Globally upscaled Composure, Aggression, Crash and MinimumRacingSkill in driver talent files
-Doubled max AI to AI collision rate from 40 to 80 (needs setting from PLR file)
-Adjusted base Safety-Car speeds for various series to more compatible levels
-Added a randomization function to Opponent filter gizmo when running a multiclass event with a specific class count (where before it would just load the same cars for each class in team order)
-Added config overrides to search correct driver talent folders (fixing bug with drivers present in multiple series occasionally loading the wrong file and misperforming as a result) ***
-Upscaled AI aggression ranges (max setting is now double what it was before, with lower settings adjusted to suit)
-Various AI physics adjustments to improve their racing ability and line adherence
-Generally increased AI reaction to front tire slip
-Adjusted AI brake performance for all cars
-Adjusted AI fuel strategy so they don´t pit on the very first lap it gets on low fuel range
-Updated AI performance ranges for several tracks
-Adjusted AI spring / damper multipliers on stiffer cars to further reduce AI jittering over sawtooth curbs

-Revised tire wear functions for several cars
-Revised fuel consumption and estimates for several cars
-Globally raised undertray friction to minimise advantages of unrealistically low Set-ups in some cars
-Adjusted default Set-ups for low downforce configs in Formula cars

-Roughened up flat curbs at Taruma, Londrina
-Spielberg: Fixed fuel use range causing excessive fuel consumption for player and AI
-Oulton: Adjusted AI line through chicane so AI don´t clip high curb
-Brasilia: Fixed cars going into the pits in rolling starts
-StockV8: Corrected max opponents; Corrected and added missing talent files: fixed LCD laptime info
-Montana: Fixed max opponents
-F-V12: Adjusted ride height ranges, increased rake in default Set-up
-Mini: Fixed auto-shifting bug; minor adjustment to external sound loops
-Boxer Cup: Updated rear brake light; Updated cockpit materials and textures; added configuration option to install / remove rear view camera display
-Karts: Updated skin alphas to suit latest car shader
-F-Vee: Adjusted AI performance
-ARC Camaro: Fixed reflection bug in cockpit gauges
-F-Vintage: Adjusted longitudinal CoF for front tires; tweaked AI performance

-F-V10: Adjusted TC sound
-F3: Reduced aero loss in draft
-SuperV8: Fixed pit timings to realistic values

*The Custom Season Tool should be fairly intuitive to use - run the tool, select a series you wish to create a custom championship for, customize the calendar from all available track layouts, set up the scoring system (including option for separate points for multiple heat results, Pole-Position, laps led), some basic rules and then save when you´re satisfied - your custom championship will then be listed in Championship mode for the series it was based on, and you can further customize it with the usual championship options in-game (opponent cars, opponent strength, race distance, number of heats, quali, tire / wear multipliers etc).

**Since arms are added as objects rather than 3D animation, they´re not articulated nor do they have gear shifting animations; for the same reason steering wheel rotation animation is limited to 90º in each direction when driver arms are installed; in some cars, driver arms configuration is merged with seat position and / or cockpit type; Most cars have visible driver arms from external view irrespective of whether cockpit configuration is used or not - exception being vehicles where this solution was not considered to look acceptable - specifically karts and Formula Truck do not feature driver arms.

***In case of series with drivers featuring in multiple categories (ex Barrichello who is a driver in V10, StockV8, Kart) in order to get the series-correct team / driver performance, tire wear and start skill, user is advised to select the specific series rather than All Cars / Tracks.
