Le Mans Ultimate: Boxenstopp zur Aktualisierung auf Patch 2

Mit dem zweiten umfangreichen Update für Le Mans Ultimate adressiert Studio 397 eine Reihe von bisherigen Problemen und Unannehmlichkeiten und schraubt den Realismusgrad von Strecken und Fahrzeugen höher

(MST/Speedmaniacs.de) - Gerade einmal zwei Wochen ist es her, dass Studio 397 für Le Mans Ultimate, die offizielle Motorsportsimulation zu den 24h von Le Mans und der FIA World Endurance Championship, den ersten umfassenden Patch zur Verfügung gestellt hat. Im Eiltempo geht es in dieser Woche weiter.

Patch 2 für die offizielle Motorsportsimulation zu den 24h von Le Mans und der FIA World Endurance Championship Zoom

Am Dienstag, 26.03.2024 wurde der Patch 2 veröffentlicht, welcher nicht weniger umfangreich wie das erste Update ausfällt. Dem Änderungsprotokoll lässt sich entnehmen, dass eine ganze Reihe an allgemeinen Änderungen und Überarbeitungen am Programmcode vorgenommen wurden.

Darüber hinaus haben die Entwickler der KI einiges an Aufmerksamkeit geschenkt, sodass diese im Ergebnis für die Spieler nun einerseits berechenbarer agieren und andererseits eine Herausforderung darstellen sollte, und in anderen Bereichen der Motorsportsimulation gearbeitet.

Für noch mehr Realismus sorgen zudem bei einzelnen Strecken und Fahrzeugen vorgenommene Anpassungen, Fehlerbehebungen und Balance of Performance-Aktualisierungen.

Simracer können die einzelnen Maßnahmen mit dem nachstehenden Änderungsprotokoll nachvollziehen.

Patch 2 26.03.2024-Changelog:
General and Code Updates
-Integrate crash reporting software to automatically collect crash reports
-Fix crashes when no sound devices is available
-Fixed an issue that would cause cars to collide if one of them teleported close to the other in an online session - disabled collision for teleporting cars if they end up in other cars
-Fix for FFB oscillating during game freezes or change state
-Fixed a bug to ensure the game is running at normal speed when exiting the pause menu
-Quality of life changes for virtual fuel information display in the MFD and speedometer overlays (See UI for more details)
-Fixed issues around fuel estimates at the start of a fast rolling race
-Various fixes to AI fuel consumption
-Fixed virtual energy usage - MGU deployment and higher gears will no longer drain energy faster
-Fix for virtual fuel reporting as 100x the actual value when measured in KW in the pit menu.
-AI toggle removed as not performing as this is not currently supported
-Fixed some talent files failing to load
-Reviewed Driving Aid Penalties implementation
-Fixed Blue Flag in cockpit stating LMP incorrectly
-Removed some unused cockpit LED options which were causing some crashes

AI
-Improved AI ability to avoid other cars by both braking and turn in
-AI are more careful in unclear situations (slow, unpredictable cars ahead)
-Fixed an error in strategy causing fuel logging to fail along with wrong conditions being used for strategy calculations. This fixes various situations in which AI would behave incorrectly.
-Improved AI full grid turn 1 situations - less contact, cars no longer occasionally come to a full stop
-AI can predict better whether it is safe to lift before corners in order to carry more momentum for lapping another car on exit
-AI can now pick closing gaps on flat out sections of the circuit and predicts whether the car ahead leaves space or not - should help in not-quite-straight situations that otherwise never have enough space in one go to overtake around a specific side
-Lapped cars no longer immediately attempt to re-overtake when they get the chance
-Much less aggressive overtaking attempts, so AI don't get out of shape as much anymore
-AI no longer brake at the last possible moment when there is a car ahead, instead in situations that require it they'll be more careful
-AI now try to carry a little bit more speed into braking zones when overtaking and lapping
-Improved lift and brake logic to avoid getting too close to other cars
-AI tyre wear is now hidden from player on HUD

UI
Boot sequence and registration
-Video is now skippable
-First time user difficulty select now better matches in-game settings
-Email validation is now less strict allowing "+" and other similar valid email characters
-Temporarily removed names being registered with symbols as it was causing backend issues. This will be returned when we have made the required changed

Race weekend
-Any session length can now be set
-Updated available class UI to be more clear
-Changing grid position option now loops from max to low again.
