Slight changes to the previous tire carcass and grips. Opened adjustments for the front and rear "torsion bar" chassis stiffeners ( swaybars in our setup screens). Caster adjustment back to 20 degrees. Ride heights now adjustable as on the real Karts. I think it's close to hitting the mark everyone's been so great feeding back on. Default setup was done at Greenwood. After tuning the caster for the right amount of turn in, tire pressures are your best friend for over/under steer in the faster stuff.. Cool to see the inside rear tire lift in the replays both player and AI karts. AI tuned more and working better. Had some fun races agianst 9 Karts at Greenwood with the new AIW i just did. Enjoy!

  • Correct Endorsement sponsor names (4429)
  • Disabling cameras when using debug cheat
  • Fix WMD-1389 - Kers display on F1 steering wheel
  • Disabled yellow flag collisions (requested by Stephen V)
  • Career Endorsements: Reworked TextIDs to ensure correct strings displayed
  • Lap counter now fits in when three digits, L and P now localised (4495 4123)
  • Default AI difficulties tweak to 30,50,80 to work better with the new AI behavior
  • Career Social Media names and images expanded for more variety, less chance of repetition
  • Fix for incorrect car positions on non-rotated HUD map (WMD-1649, 3546, 4536) including if REPUTATION_ENABLED now fixed
  • Fix for long car name on lobby (both in-game and frontend), fix for unresponsive list on Tuning Save screen, fix for incorrectly-deleted save on Load Career screen (3585 2477 4535)

Cameras:

  • Pre-Race cameras polish (Kart/F1/GT), 8 far shot + 8 wide shots + per track offset/tweaks

Characters/Animation:

  • Baked AO on legs and darkening.
  • Driver Male ART: Meshes Kart material, colourize turned OFF

AI/Pitstops:

  • Calendar events array size updated to match latest data
  • Player car gets some priority when exiting garages and pits
  • Skip updating trigger time tracking when hitting pit triggers
  • Changing pit crew disappearance not to be immediately after the race end
  • AI offroad slowdown tweaked to ensure AI going wide offroad slow down appropriately
  • Player car now must follow pit manager rules and will only be released when safe to do so
  • 2D Geometry tests no longer apply to cars which have no collision. This alos helps with smoot pit entry in heavy traffic
  • Extend non-collision when pitting up to the wole BID_PIT AIW from just in between the Pit In/Out Triggers. This will help smooth pit entry in heavy traffic

Career:

  • If contracted vehicle isn't found, uses fallback name rather than placeholder text. Part of fix for WMD-4464 
  • Yellow flag trigger values tweaked to prevent yellows as soon as a car is just slowing down, or if a car is far off track.
  • Updated unlock criteria textIDs entries for 2 LE events, and hooked up all 5 LE textIDs in the event HRDF. Last part of WMD-4421
  • Fixed news and contract displays for Invitations to avoid using placeholder text, from them using non-contracted motorsports. WMD-4421

Vehicles:

  • McLaren P1: Fixed LODB body mesh naming
  • Formula A: Added KERS readout to display
  • Lotus 78: Polished cockpit vibration animation setup
  • Lotus 98T: Polished cockpit vibration animation setup
  • Mercedes SLS: Added wear and damage overrides for Merc SLS

Physics:

  • FA AI rain grip tweaked
  • Protection for BodyRelation joints in constructor
  • Lotus 78: Brought rain tire up to standard and did some other minor final tire tuning.
  • AI Slick cars rain tires: Upped rain grip again to get straight speed up. Still too fast in corners. Will need some code changes to sort the corner grip.
  • Formula A: Fixes rolling drag keeping down speed. Matched to Spa (193mph) medium downforce using DRS, and Monza (210mph) 0/0 wings and taller gears but no other tricks, so 217 should be possible. New tire tweaks based on AJ's latest and my latest thinking merged in. So new carcass and compoound. Also a new wet tire compound that works without constantly spinning. Much softer than the first pass. Small changes to the setup. Set wings in the middle (previously they were 1 step above), slight swyabar change, and reduced rear brake temp. Got he AI working really close to the player car at Spa without DRS (they don'y use it). Enjoy!

Environment:

  • Red triple tyre stacks changed to be tracklod controlled LOD distance (dynamic objects)

Tracks:

  • Imola: Pre Race camera/timing setup
  • Snetterton: PitIn trigger position tweaked
  • Brands Hatch: Pit entry trigger moved to increase distance to 1st pit
  • Sakitto: Outer terrain updates, texture polish,viewer placement tweaks
  • Oschersleben: Texture size optimisation pass2 done on collected textures
  • Jin Ding: Crowd placement update, tick trackside light in the materials of the startlight and the pitlight, Add Missing Supports for the advert billboards, Add improved (Higher Res) Adverts to replace the older placeholders here & here, using a mix of Panasonic/nVidia/WMD Logo's, Add proper Adverts to replace the broken Panels here with the Metal Construction material applied, Add night emissives to the advert boards with accompanying ambient Spotlights, fix some tree crossection woth billboards (in vt), fix lod distance for some buildings and ads
