  • Changes to extend AI terrain avoidance on higher gravity worlds
  • Authority ships now prioritise the closest ship to them when determining what to scan, ie either the Mothership or Fighters
  • Fix Pirate Hunter Hostile behaviour so that they attack after interdicting
  • In auto-loadout system, tweak chances of high-end weapons to make them slightly more unlikely for both military and all other archetypes

  • Make sure that NPCs properly evaluate cargo worth to prevent some odd cases
  • Fixed an issue in the AI defence code which stopped heat-sinks/Chaff/ECM from working

Stations/Ports

  • When targeting a station’s location (usually but not limited to when in supercruise heading towards it) show the schematic in the correct orientation. Note that this does not take into account the stations gentle axis-rotation, but will at the very least tell you where the entrance of an orbis/coriolis/etc will be when you drop out
  • Stations can now be disabled, which will turn off thier response to crimes and will disable AI spawning
  • Stations can now be placed within rings
  • Stations can now be placed within asteroid clusters

  • Fixed the attach to bone offset incorrectly assuming the rotation it receives in in degrees instead of radians
  • Adjusted several garages in this location as planet terrain was poking through the floors
  • Fixed ugly circle caused by fog being incorrectly clipped in stations
  • Decreased the lens flare scale on the landing pad floor spots so that they don’t obscure the GUI panels and generally look more sensible
  • Remove self destruct option from the right panel when we’re docked (we can’t self destruct here anyway so the button just doesn’t do anything)
  • Adjusted the heat ring texture to get back some of the glow which had been lost
  • Fixed LODs on the “Rich” road sections
  • CPU optimisations around stations and capital ships

Station Services

  • Increase maximum stored ship limit to 35 to accommodate that we now have more than 30 kinds of ship
  • Small tweaks for repairing ship paintwork and integrity when they’re only very slightly damaged. Don’t display 100% when it is actually slightly damaged and repairable. This makes the UI clearer and avoids some odd behaviour
  • Check if a refinery has unprocessed materials in it, and display a warning if it does before storing the module, as these will be lost during the storage process
  • Fixed module transfer timer wrapping around when the arrival time is in the past
  • Don’t show the Livery button if outfitting isn’t available at that location

  • Fix for Shield Cell bank displaying incorrect ammo amounts

Controls

  • Make sure a sensible default control scheme is selected if we are unable to load the users preferred control scheme instead of just selecting the first in the alphabetical list
  • Fix a bunch of the default control schemes that have had gamepad bindings added to them. This was causing them to not load if you did not have a gamepad connected to the PC
  • Removed gamepad bindings from all schemes that don’t rely on a gamepad. This will stop you requiring a gamepad to be plugged in to see the schemes for joysticks or keyboard controls
  • Allowed the alternate control bindings to have inverted axis

SRV

  • Adjust the sorting of signals being sent to the sinewave scanner GUI/audiorather than tracking a fairly unreliable subset of available signals, they should both now deal with as many as they can manage (8 and 32) ranked in order of signal strength. Fixes known cases where nearby objects can be omitted from the scanner (some entirely, some would be audio-only). Also includes some minor optimisation to the system as a whole
  • Deploy option is available for SRV while still on the pad at engineer stations in a large ship fixed
  • If ship gets stuck in “ship approaching” when recalled on extreme uneven ground, it can now be dismissed.

  • Optimisations to buggy headlight lens flares

CQC

  • Fix an error when accepting an invite from someone who has already joined a game
  • Fix an issue with the CQC default player starting params getting modified
  • Fixing flipped hit bubbles for CQC Empire Fighter hardpoints and adjusting other hit volumes to allow them to be triggered a bit easier

Render

  • Fix for hard edge on pfx smoke texture loop textures
  • Fixed temporal reprojection not taking a correct average of the 3×3 pixel neighbourhood
  • Added descriptions to various graphics setting options
  • HBAO no longer writes in the AO when the data stored in the anisotropic channel is in fact a tangent
  • Improved PFX lodding
  • Optimize cost of spawning new lens flares (and thus, also improve the cost of spawning lights)
  • Fixed the lens flare’s having a 1 pixel line down the right hand side
  • Fixed black line at the centre of insanely high res screenshots
  • Fix the “Off” shadow preset being incorrectly flagged as “High” internally by default. This caused shadows to not update correctly when switching between Off and High settings

Galaxy Map

  • System map initialisation optimisations
  • Galaxy map memory and performance optimisations
  • Disable HBAO when using the galaxy map as it is not used
  • Fix System Map not updating when scanning planets while open
  • Fix a small bug where for single-jump plotting modes (synthesis or neutron-boosted jumps), there could be a discrepancy between which systems have the “plot route” button enabled, and which systems can actually be plotted to in one jump. The discrepancy happened because the calculation for the maximum plotting distance (which is usually 1000LY but for single-jump modes is based on the ship’s actual jump distance) didn’t take into account the cargo mass slider that’s used by the route plotter
  • Small route plotter optimisation: don’t replot the route when toggling a map filter which has all systems enabled
  • Systems that don’t have meta-data now display as having pristine reserves in the system map

Powerplay

  • Change powerplay pirates and security ships to only interdict if they will then go on to attack after scanning. This means PowersPirates check the player is pledged to the controlling power and either carrying any powerplay cargo or holding any powerplay vouchers. For PowersSecurity they check the player is pledged to an opposing (different superpower) power, and either carrying powerplay cargo of the controlling power or holding powerplay vouchers of the controlling power
  • Previously ships could legally attack each other if the attacker shared the same superpower as the power of the current system, and the target was pledged to a power of a different superpower. First, we restrict this so that the attacker has to be the same power as the system. Second, we add an alternative to being different superpowersif the attacker is the same power as the system, and the target is of a different power from the attacker (but potentially now of the same superpower), is carrying powerplay cargo for the system’s power, and the attacker has cargo scanned the target and knows this, then the attack is legal
  • Set powerplay help scrollbar to external, to prevent text from truncating

Controls

  • Can no longer use mouse 2 as back in station services menu fixed
  • When comparing bindings for conflicts, first sort the array of bindings in a chord, this fixes an issue where you could bind the same button combo to multiple controls by changing the order you pressed the buttons

AMS logo

Automobilista v1.30 is released, along with a new DLC: Adelaide is also available now!

If you are interested in other current & upcoming Automobilista DLCs however it is strongly recommended you check the AMS “Season Pass” for all upcoming DLCs (for those that already have the base game) and the bundle of AMS Base + Season Pass (which includes the base game).

Pricings for Automobilista & Season Pass have been adjusted – Automobilista base has dropped to US$ 29.99 (or respective currency conversion) while the Season Pass price has risen to US$ 39.99 or your respective currency conversion. Individual DLC packages remain priced the same way, including Adelaide which now sells for the standard US$ 5.99.

For a limited amount of time you may still get the Membership upgrade which includes the Season Pass with the old pricing of US$ 29.99 from our forum store[forum.reizastudios.com], and that will also grant you Reiza 51 access.

Below is the Changelog for v1.3.0:

Content

Cars

  • Added ARC Camaro Series

Tracks

  • Added Adelaide street circuit (historic 1988, modern & Supertruck layouts) (AVAILABLE ONLY FOR ADELAIDE OR SEASON PASS OWNERS)

 

Features & Fixes

  • Implemented audio reverb (static for now) & added option to customize reverb level from audio menu
  • Added new sound effect filters & altered doppler effect
  • Expanded audio options & reprofiled volume sliders
  • Added diesel exhaust smoke emission to Formula Trucks
  • Added F-Truck mid-race full course yellow option to RULES menu (may be used for other series as well) *
  • Race menu tweaks & other minor UI adjustments
  • DynHUD: Fixed Delta widget functionality occasionally not resetting when switching to another track in TT mode
  • Added function for track state deterioration while track is not used from one day to another and from one session to another (may vary from track to track)
  • Fixed bug with DRS counter causing DRS to be available before lap 3; Fixed DRS being available during and after safety car period; DRS can now also be deactivated by pressing DRS button
  • Added (AI) label to AI cars in multiplayer
  • Cars now default to ideal tire pressure & temperature, warmed up brakes at the start of Time Trial mode
  • updated engine wear / reliability values in various cars
  • Adjusted yellow flag / parc ferme / start procedure rules for several series
  • Raised AI speed behind safety car
  • Fixed bug with track state not resetting correctly when race or weekend is restarted
  • Added new engine wear / blow-up functions **
  • Adjusted marbles spacing offline to reduce FFB rattling
  • Added dynamic road shader for road surface dust (currently implemented at Adelaide, Oulton, Caldwell, Brands, Jacarepagua Historic and Montreal Historic, VIR, Kansai, Imola)
  • Interlagos: Eased off cut detection at T11 exit and inside S/F straight
  • Added low downforce aero packages to F-Classic, F-V12, F-V10, F-Reiza & F-Extreme
  • Slightly increased downshift protection in cars with semi-automatic boxes
  • Adjusted AI brake power / grip usage for all cars
  • Removed incorrectly enabled launch control from engines in several series
  • Fixed overdone dynamic tire wear texture
  • Supertruck: Raised camber and suspension damping for default setup; Adjusted tire textures
  • Boxer Cup: Completely revised physics with addition of helper springs
  • SuperV8: fixed uv mapping issue on carbody
  • F-Trainer: Minor tire model adjustments
  • F-Vintage: Minor tire model adjustments; Adjusted tire LOD settings

  • Superkart: Minor tire model adjustments; Reduced aero yaw sensitivity
  • SuperV8: Minor tire model adjustments; reduced default roll bar setting a click on both ends
  • Karts: Further AI performance tuning

* The mid-race full course yellow is a rule from F-Truck – it triggers a 2-lap safety car period after the leader completes half race distance (provided the total distance is equal or more than 10 laps / 15 minutes).

** The new engine reliability functions will demand extra care during gear shifts, specially for older engines. Upshifting without lifting in cars without powershift and bouncing off the rev limiter will accelerate engine wear and may eventually lead to failures if practiced over a longer race distance; a very aggressive downshift may lead to an instant blow-up.

If you have an online race tonight, you may stick to or revert to the previous v1.1.1 by selecting that branch from the Steam Beta tab. Further instructions as to how to do that here.

If you have a bug to report please use the new bug report thread (make sure to check the opening post first).

If you experience any issues running the game following the update, it´s worth running a Steam Integrity Check to make sure all files have been added / updated correctly.

For further difficulties related to installing, running or setting up the game, please refer to USER MANUAL present as a launch option from Steam If you need further assistance please post it inV1.0 troubleshooting topic or email support@reizastudios.com (please allow for up to 1 business day for a reply).

AUTOMOBILISTA

Hello everyone – happy to be back with our first Development Update of 2017!

We hope you all had a good time over the holidays – on our side I´m happy to say the whole team enjoyed some much needed rest over the holiday season, but we have been hard at work and firing on all cylinder again since early january. As usual it´s my pleasure to share with you some of the results, info and previews of the work we´ve been doing since then.

Automobilista going up to v1.5

We´re approaching the final stretch of Automobilista development, with only a few more months now planned until AMS reaches its definitive state, at which point we´ll switch focus 100% to the future.

The pace of development however is not slowing down – quite the contrary in fact. There are a number of nice improvements, big and small which we´ve been laying down the foundation for and will be pushing to deliver over these remaining months. Such is the extent of these developments, that the full sum of them is going to add up to what we´re calling Automobilista v1.5

We´ll be pushing to provide a full overview of these developments along with confirmation of remaining DLCs by our next development update. For now, here´s the stuff in the immediate horizon.

Upcoming V1.3.0 Release

Our next major milestone is v1.3.0 which we´re pushing to release before the end of this month, packing a lot of good stuff. Here´s a breakdown of the most substantial improvements:

On the audio front, having decided he wasn´t happy being just an ace audio engineer, @Domagoj Lovric began exploring the codebase for possible short-term improvements to add some extra depth to the audio experience in AMS. One of these improvements will be the implementation of reverb audio, the initial version of which will already be present in v1.3.0, with much more to come.

@Alex Sawczuk has also somehow managed to find a window in his fairly hectic track production schedule to squeeze some fresh shader improvements and adding support for visible & dynamic track dust. Although the effects of which already present in AMS along with offline marbles, there wasn´t yet a visible dust layer over the track surface. This has now been implemented.

Here is a comparison from v1.3.0 in various track states and also one from the current v1.2.1:

The difference looks subtle on screenshots but it adds some noticeable extra depth and life to the track surface while driving in-game. Some of the tracks have already been updated to use these developments so Season Pass owners will be able to check them out in the upcoming beta release expected for tomorrow morning, with most of the other tracks expected to be updated as we progress.

Several car physics have also received some updates for v1.30 as both @Niels Heusinkveld and myself continue to chase for improvements. One car in particular has received special attention as Niels has given the Boxer Cup physics a complete overhaul, with revised aerodynamics, chassis, and the addition of helper springs to the suspension, which substantially improves handling over curbs. The initial version of these revised physics is also coming up with the next Beta update.

One major new feature previously confirmed in our end of the year Dev Update was the Custom Season Tool – unfortunately it´s looking unlikely we´ll manage to complete the full feature in time for v1.3.0, but a number of associated new options & features should hopefully already be in, such as the option to enable a mid-race full course yellow as per the rules in the Formula Truck series, and ability to customize the number of opponent cars from each class in a multiclass event.

You may check a complete list of all the additions, improvements & fixes since the last v1.2.1 release up to the latest Beta in the changelog attatched.

We also have a new car coming up in the next release with the frisky Aussie Racing Car Camaro – further good news is that unlike originally predicted, this will be released as a free car to the base game and not as a DLC.

Here´s a preview of the 3D model which @Sandro Kholodkevich is exporting to the game as we speak:

Work on physics and audio has also been going on in parallell – count on this little motorcycle engine-powered bugger to be a big bucket of fun to drive :)

Legendary Tracks Pt2 – ADELAIDE

V1.30 will also see the release of part 2 of our “Legendary Tracks” DLC series – the famous Adelaide street circuit is coming up in two versions: the longer historical layout of 1988 which hosted the Australian GP from 1985 to 1995, the new modern version along with its Supertruck variant.

Below you can check some WIP previews of this great track:

I mentioned in the previous update how demanding street tracks are for the track team, with all the buildings and surroundings which have to be modelled in minute detail as you can see here:

The more advanced modern version should be hitting AMS Beta tomorrow, with the historical version is not far behind and expected to be available in the Beta at some point next week:

Both versions are extremely fun, flowing drives which will serve well pretty much any car in Automobilista, while also providing plenty of opportunity for close racing. We´ve been enjoying some great battles during our internal tests as can be seen in this short video showing a couple of laps of myself hunting down @Alex Sawczuk with F-Retros around the modern track:

Virtual Xperience developments

@Dave Stephenson has also been hard at work developing our Virtual Xperience portal, and we´ve got a substantial update coming up along with the release of AMS v1.3.0.

Users will be able to login into VX using their Steam Account – this opens up opportunities to give a more personalised experience in the various areas of VX. In the first instance the settings page accessible from the top naviagation bar provides the much requested ability to override your display name and country flag, overriding the settings collected from Steam.

From this customizable user profile, other users will be able to check out your leaderboard results. Expect this profile to be beefed up with some more interesting info in the future :)

The new Community section will also be available in the next update, providing a one-stop-shop to find communities and leagues serving users of Automobilista and other Reiza titles based on regions served, languages used or days they host races. The league finder in this section will also provide a similar service for leagues so users may find leagues that based on race days, event frequency, or your favourite series.

Community leaders and league admin are invited to submit their information to the directory following the instructions in this topic – every league admin who submits a valid entry will be gifted 2 promo Steam keys for AMS to be given away for his participants.

With these and some other substantial improvements coming up, VX will soon be playing a bigger role in fulfilling the experience with AMS, including hosting some prize awarding competitions. Watch this space!

Last but not least…

But we´ll expand more on this and other interesting topics in our next dev update towards the end of march ;)~

rf-2-logo

We have a lot of exciting news in this month’s update as we edge closer to our release at the end of Q1. The team is working very hard in all areas and we’re thrilled to share some of the recent developments with you.

VR Update

With DX11 implementation complete, we are now in our first development stage for VR. Our initial focus is the in-car driver experience with both the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive. The second development stage will delve deeper into the environmental capabilities of the VR experience, which we will share over the next couple of months.

DX11 Content Peek

Last month we shared with you our first comparison shots for DX11. In the last couple of weeks we’ve focused on ensuring compatibility with existing content as well as further improvements to the way we render our HDR output. We’ll let the new screenshots speak for themselves.

Competition Update

Development of the competition infrastructure is going well and is on track to be released this summer. Drivers and teams will be able to record their stats, achievements and results, which then can be accessed through any device and shared with friends. Competitions will feature selected existing content and new content. Details will be announced in the coming months. Our main focus is to create feature rich mechanics that provide a challenge for new drivers and seasoned sim racing veterans alike.

UI Update

We are super excited about our new user interface, which is currently under development. The new UI not only provides a more intuitive and user-friendly experience, it also offers improved flexibility and the ability to add new elements and modules.

NOLA Motorsports Park

Whether you choose to race a kart, open wheeler, or tintop, the large variety of configurations makes NOLA a very versatile and challenging track to master. NOLA Motorsports Park will be released on February 28th!

Radio Communication

Most racing series use radio communication to let drivers talk to their team and pit crew. Some series also have race control broadcasting instructions. For example, oval racing series such as Stock Car typically also have spotters that keep an eye on what’s happening to keep you out of trouble.

We are working on expanding our current system, which is centered on the spotter’s role, into a system that allows different people to talk to you on the radio. In addition, we intend to make the communication more interactive by giving you the ability to ask for information or instructions.

Modding

We’re excited to invite modding teams to join our private forum. We are looking to work with those of you in the modding community to explain the necessary steps that ensure your content continues to work flawlessly with the new DX11 engine. Modders joining our forum will also get access to pre-release builds of the DX11 graphics engine (still in alpha). Our goal is to ensure that your content is ready to go when we do the first public release of the new engine.

If your modding team is interested, please register on our forum and start a conversation with Christopher and Marcel, stating:

  1. Your modding team name and all the names and forum names of members that need access.
  2. A list of mods you have released for rFactor 2 (either links to the workshop, or some other reference).
  3. Any other interesting information about your team such as mods you are still working on.

That wraps up this roadmap update. We are looking forward to the coming month of development so we can continue to share with you our progress on the new innovative elements planned over the next few months!

Hello Hunters,

Here is another update from our side as we address the issues that you mention and report.

Once more we want to say thank you for your support, reporting these issues to us and of course for playing theHunter: Call of the Wild. It’s great to see the wonderful screenshots, videos and achievements from the community and we are working on solutions to improve the game and performance for our players.

Next to the smaller updates from today and yesterday, there is a bigger patch on its way. We can’t give you a final release date yet as testing is still in progress but we plan to release it very soon.

Today’s update includes:

  • Fix for “Invite to game” feature on Steam that would ultimately lead to a crash
  • Crash fix for hovering over specific icons in the map
  • Crash fix for ragdoll synchronization for spawned animals
  • Disabled joining friends in multiplayer games when the game is not running
  • Miscellaneous crash fixes

Additionally, there is a partial fix for joining friends in multiplayer. As long as the game is running, you will be able to join a friend’s game via the Steam functionality. Please make sure your friends have the game running when sending invites to play via Steam.

If you don’t have the game running and join a game after the update, you will only start the game.

We are also working together with AMD to investigate and fix any hardware related issues that were reported by our players.

And finally, there are work-around solutions to some problems until we can fix them for good:

Keybindings

You can manually adjust your keybindings outside of the game by doing the following:

  • Disable cloud saving on Steam (Properties -> Updates -> Untick Steam Cloud Synchronization)
  • Go to Documents\Avalanche Studios\theHunter Call of the Wild\Saves open your save folder
  • Open “keymap.json” with a text editor of your choice (e.g. Notepad)
  • Manually adjust keybindings
  • Save file and start the game (keeping cloud save disabled until you have started it once)

Return to Game from Settings menu

  • Hovering over any of the main menu icons on the left side of the screen and then pressing ESC will return you to the game.

Thanks again and happy hunting!

Stefan


AC logo

Featuring all-new FREE bonus content, including the Audi Sport quattro S1 E2, as well as our home made Highlands track! The perfect track doesn’t exist. That’s why we created one.

AUDI QUATTRO S1 E2
Introduced back in 1984, the Audi Sport quattro S1 E2 revolutionized rallying. Just like the other manufacturers, Audi used the lenient homologation requirements to create a new rally car. All the car maker needed for homologation was a production run of a mere 200 cars.
Blomqvist’s spectacular, sideways driving style suited the Sport quattro perfectly. By flicking the tail out, the Swede overcame the natural understeer of the nose-heavy Audi. He won five of the twelve rounds and was crowned the 1984 World Champion. Mikkola and Roehrl also won a round, which was enough to clinch the constructor’s trophy.

HIGHLANDS LAYOUTS
The perfect track doesn’t exist.
That’s why we created one.

Highlands – The original layout, 8152 meters long, filled with fast flowing path with curves and several jumps.

Highlands Long – An extension of the original layout, 12191 meters long and has all the characteristics of the original layout. This layout features some slower curves, a fast series of left and right turns, after a passage between rocks and the distinctive 3km long “Cabhag straight”

Highlands Drift – A configuration born to create long powerslides with supercars and hypercars. At 5167 meters long, this layout features long, flat and smooth curves, perfect for holding a constant power slide. The “tower lùb”, guards the surroundings at the top of the hill.

Highlands Short – The shortest configuration, only 1714 meters, but based entirely inside the city. Incredibly intense and requires the concentration of a pro.

All four layouts share the same starting positions and pit lane, as well as the first corner and final 2 corners.

FIXES INCLUDE
* Improved and updated V10 tyre model for all cars available
* Improved and updated cars handling and chassis balance and inertia for all cars available
* Brake fade for all vintage cars
* Improved tyre wear and tyre graining algorithms taking more into account the load operation for each tyre.
* General bug fixes and corrections and improvements all around.
* Fanatec Leds and display now supported

Take On Mars is OUT NOW

Skip years of astronaut training, political debate, and budget cuts

Hello fellow Martians!

Graduating from Steam Early Access, we’re proud to finally announce the official release of Take On Mars. The special milestone is celebrated with a launch trailer, highlighting the many ‘benefits’ of playing Take On Mars over alternative options of space exploration.

Starting out as mod for Carrier Command: Gaea Mission, Take On Mars began life as a passion project by our Project Lead Martin Melichárek, who was already working at Bohemia Interactive at the time. After deciding to make it into a full game, Take On Mars launched on Steam Early Access soon after in 2013. The initial focus of the game was on Mars rovers and landers. However, over the course of development, the scope of the project increased significantly to also include a manned mission part, and thus capturing the exploration of Mars in its entirety.

Take On Mars Project Lead Martin Melichárek:
“For as long as I can remember I’ve been fascinated with space exploration, and particularly Mars. Being able to make this game has been like a dream come true. It took a bit longer than anticipated, and it’s been wild ride that’s tested the patience of both us and our Early Access subscribers, but, it was a ride worth taking. We, as a team, thank all of our loyal fans, those who have never doubted us, in helping us make this dream a reality!”.

See you on Mars!

Take On Mars Development Team
