Update 33 (Build 998) Changelog:

FEATURES:
————-
– Added an option to the KnockoutQualifying plugin to have a fixed number of vehicles being scored in Q2/Q3/Q4, rather than have a variable number which was computed proportionally based on the number of vehicles in Q1.
– Added the admin command /pitbyvehicle. This is similar to /pitbydriver and /pitbyteam, but finds matches to the Description in the VEH file.
– Online map put player’s icon and the icon for the car to be followed under caution in front of the others so they are easier to keep track of.
– Juggled some suspension geometry initialization so that caster changes affect the outboard pushrod location.
– Added results file tag which lists the layout MAS file.
– Letting “virtual” cars override “Classes” & “Category” from the base vehicle file. (in a text editor, by hand.)
– Made the key for triple-head configuration and the TGM display into a single configurable control.
– Added onboard right track bar adjustment, which requires the HDV [SUSPENSION] setting OnboardRightTrackBarAdjustment=1.
– Expanded multiview adjustments to allow separate side channel settings
– Added multiview adjustment tool, toggle with ctrl-equal
– Default pace car is Corvette
– Made fuel adjustment in legacy HDV variable BoostEffects work on new engine model (note that using the new turbo technology already results in more fuel being consumed naturally).

FIXES:
————-
– Corrected albedo levels on several particle textures.
– Fix for not checking mod versions when changing mods
– Fixed an issue where a rear axle adjustment was essentially being done twice in initialization.
– Fix for server not writing correct results when everybody leaves session.
– An attempt to avoid the opponent car jitters that start happening after a few hours and get worse in long multiplayer sessions. This still needs to be tested (using the admin command /forwardseconds should help).
– Fix for locale errors in config.ini
– Corrected static ARB forces (already accounted for non-symmetric ride heights, but now accounts for non-symmetric springs and weights as well)
– Fixed underbody scraping sound.
– Small fix to prevent the upgrade tree list from updating the current track when not in realtime.
– Fixed place readout and camera cycling by place in normal (i.e. non-instant) replay mode.
– The wheels on other clients’ vehicles should usually rotate at approximately the correct speed now.
– Attempted fix for race rejoin where client still thinks vehicle is under AI control.

MODDING / PUBLIC DEV:
————-
– Added “none” to AIW editor text display options. Fixed step distance/speed not getting saved for track overrides in AIW editor.

“ISI are proud to present Build 982 of the rFactor 2 racing simulation. This build introduces a new rules plugin system (Internals Plugin v7 has been released below) and a massive amount of other improvements, tweaks and fixes.

This build represents the first major step in migrating our game rules out of the base game and into plugins. This system is intended to allow easy adjustment of rules for your races without waiting for ISI to add or develop them. We’re still working on this, so while functional, feedback is still very welcome.

Apart from that, selected highlights include some very nice tweaks to the AI, such as detection of being on two wheels and the ability to recover, reduction in the needless braking/slowing in panic situations along with better support for pack racing and drafting. We’ve also raised the default car limit to 45 (previously 30), as the move to 64bit means most people have enough RAM available to run that many cars (32bit users will still run out of RAM at/around 25-30 cars).

We’re quite sure you’ll be happy with the full release note (see below). Probably something in there to please everyone…”

FEATURES:
– This build represents the first major step in migrating our game rules out of the base game and into plugins. This system is intended to allow easy adjustment of rules for your races without waiting for ISI to add or develop them. We’re still working on this, so feedback is very welcome. NEW PLUGIN SYSTEM RELEASED.
– Max vehicles for the All Cars & Tracks default mod was increased to 45.
– Added a configurable control for “Skip Formation” (but if none is configured, the Space key will be used).
– Added AI self-preservation reaction to preventing tipping.
– Increased effect AIW parameter AISpec has on AI acceleration and max speed.
– Added cockpit readouts “BESTLAP” and “LASTLAP” for modders to use.
– Clean up of AI multiline pack driving. More tolerance of nearby cars when slowingly moving towards grid or pit spots.
– Assume any future Thrustmaster wheel will need its FFB direction reversed and do so automatically. If for some reason that is not desired, open up the Controller.JSON file and set “Steering Effects Strength” to 9999 instead of 10000.
– FOV now stored per (exact) vehicle.
– Added steering wheel ranges to plugin telemetry.
– Now recognizing GDB track type of “Oval” in addition to the original types “Superspeedway”, “Superspeedway Oval”, “Speedway”, “Speedway Oval”, “Short Track” and “Short Track Oval”. Despite all these choices, the app code doesn’t actually differentiate them, other than to identify these track types as not being a “Road Course”. The main differences in behaviors between ovals and road courses are 1) whether the spotter works (oval only), 2) whether formation/caution lines are called “inside/outside” (ovals) or “left/right” (road courses), 3) auto-shifting and AI shifting behavior, and 4) some scoring things that will soon be obsolete because they will be controlled by plugins rather than the app code
– Added a plugin interface to view some pit menu data. Currently, you can only change the pitstop choices by using this in conjunction with CheckHWControl().
– Expanded the virtual vehicle creation to optionally include vehicle description and vehicle number.
– Adjustment parameters for multiview are now available in config.ini. You must manually edit the values in this file until the in-game tool is available. You can revert to the original multiview method by setting UseSubViewParams to 0. Setting UseSubViewParams to 1 assumes a symmetric setup and will use the ViewParams for all viewports. Exit the sim, edit config.ini and restart for settings to take effect.
– Forcing vehicle body collision model to be below a certain limit now (automatically LOD’ing if necessary). This is done for performance reasons.

FIXES:
– Fix for the “WCCLOUD.GMT” multiplayer loading error.
– Fixed mod sig missing when server publishes to matchmaker.
– Fixed some controller detection and rearrangement issues.
– Addressed issue where a matrix in AI physics drifted away from being orthogonal.
– Some improvements/fixes to replay and resume-from-replay for non-race sessions.
– Hopeful fix for skin transfer icon mistakingly showing successful completion of a skin that didn’t.
– Gold playerfile now stores Mod name instead of RFM file name for “Game Description”, since we can’t guarantee that each mod will have a unique rfm name. (potentially resulting in multiplayer issues when a client loads the wrong rfm file and joins).
– Fixed AI tendency to sometimes decelerate needlessly while transitioning from main path to pit path.
– Fixed issue when a client loses their connection during a race and rejoins, and then subsequently the race is restarted, the client didn’t know their correct grid location.

MODDING / PUBLIC DEV:
– Fix for driver editor so you can go back to main menu from track specific parameters menu.
– Added camera editor ablity to change trackside carema names. Created AI limiter slider gizmo.
– Look for digital flags up to the number of corner workers so that track builders don’t need to name digital flags consecutively.
– Fixed potential bug with custom rFm file when creating mod with wizard.

MULTIPLAYER
– In multiplayer cars will now reload if using the car switcher only to change upgrades.
– Fixed remembering of column sort state for matchmaker list.
– Fix for number of pitstops being reported as zero in multiplayer.
– Added admin command “/forwardseconds X” in order to fast forward time by X seconds, where X is from 0-65535.
– Added admin commands “/pitbydriver” and “/pitbyteam”.

GRAPHICS:
– Fixed rear view tonemapping
– Adjust post-gamma
– Fix for dirty sideviews in multiview
– Fixed extra slashes at end of Shader dir in viewer
– More HDR process optimizations
– Improved spotlight priority sorting
– Added multiview adjustments. Values in Config.ini, as well as parameter to disable new functionality (to retain use of older FOV options).
– Fixed for FXAA not working since last release.
– Additional SLI optimizations when using reflections.

UI / HUD / OPTIONS:
– Made the UI consistent with in-game with regards to the names of the Steering Help levels.
– Added indication when upgrades are required on track to the upgrade tree list on the tuning page.
– Changed password failure page to be more informative
– Added a “remove forced upgrade” button to the tuning page to easily undo user created “force upgrade” actions.
– Shrink button text to fit inside bounds

relv200_trans01-1024x238

Virtua_LM is proud to present you with one new endurance legendary track: Sebring, United States, for rFactor 2. Converted from our from-scratch creation on rFactor, this track has been modified to take advantage of new rFactor 2 capabilities.

relv200_trans01-1024x238

What is new in v2.00

  • The actual (newer) RealRoad shader is applied
  • Curbs are also RealRoad
  • Nightlights on the track side objects are back working
  • A lot of changes on the materials and textures
  • The overall brightness of the track is reduced to match the current version of rFactor 2
  • AIW (AI-Driver): some smaller fixes
  • GDB (Time and Position): some smaller fixes
  • A kind of solid “cut detection” in the part beween 15 (Gendebien) and 16 (Le Mans)

More information on the headlight intensity changes in our upcoming build: They are mostly going to require reducing attenuation values.

Here’s an example from the Renault Clio 197:

Type=Spot
Pos=( 0.625, 0.54,-1.76)
Dir=(-0.08,-0.1,-0.85)
Range=(0.0, 280.0)
Active=False
Attenuate=(0.1, 0.009, 0.00002)
Hotspots=(10, 60)
Falloff=(2)
Intensity=(2.1)
Color=(255, 241, 224)

That’s a sort of realistic value for a typical standard single bulb halogen headlight. Intensity is in lumens / 1000.

FEATURES:
————-
– Added ability to have HDV variable SemiAutomatic be set to 2 (upshifts only) or 3 (downshift only), which is in addition to the pre-existing choices 0 (off) or 1 (upshifts & downshifts).
– Added text values gizmos for wins, starts, average finish, and accumulated points for RFM. Added ability to customize font colors for multiplayer game list. Added ability for gizmos to pass clicks on to gizmos behind them. (only applies to APP_TEXTVALUE_RUNPRACTICE, RUNQUALIFYING, & RUNRACE.
– Added new option to select stretch UI width.
– Implemented “Change Password” button and added option to login dialog.
– Enabled virtual vehicle selection (and propagation) in multiplayer.

BUG FIXES / OPTIMIZATIONS:
————-
– Fix issue where clouds sometimes don’t show up in replays.
– Fixed a crash that could happen if the start light sequence on a track layout was particularly short.
– Fix broken multihead.
– Fixed issue where car class was reported incorrectly.
– Fixed Launcher crash when exiting Mod Manager.
– Added auto-focus to login dialog input.
– Fixed bug where checkbox settings in Launcher would show incorrect state on startup.
– Attempt to prevent physics thread lock up in cases where skin transfers get put into a bad state.
– Instead of relying on the background color to match the skin download state gizmo inactive state color, now hiding the gizmo in that case.
– Fixed multiplayer sort game list by series.
– Fixed bug where 1st line of credits is potentially a random font
– Fixed multiplayer game list gizmo text colors.
– Fixed gear graph in instances where there is a top/bottom letterbox effect on the options.
– Fixed monitor window FOV issues
– Code added to prevent infinite loops when an AIW has more grid positions than main path waypoints.
– Fixed issue where finish statuses were transmitted but immediately overwritten upon joining a race. This fixes the situation where a driver Esc’d out and therefore got a DNF, but then left and rejoined the server whereupon it was noticed that the DNF was cleared.
– Fixed possible crash that happens upon downloading and then installing components to join a multiplayer game.
– Fix for aspect ratio problems in monitor

GRAPHICS
————-
– Fade clouds in and out rather than popping.
– Fixed monitor window FOV issues

MODDING / PUBLIC DEV:
————-
– No longer shipping Max plugins for Max 8, 9, and 2009, support ends.
– Updated versions of Max plugins for Max 2010, 2011, and 2012 with standard mat converter.
– Toggling AI control will now also toggle player driven AI physics if “shift” is also pressed with AI control toggle key
– Updated MAS2 utility with potential fix for missing layouts/teams when creating virtual mods
– Updating SDK with latest content and same UI as the main game.

TIRES:
————
– Minor update to CPM invalidates previously-generated CPM data.
– Gas cavity volume is now affected by load (which essentially means air pressure/temperature change slightly when the tire load changes).
– Mass imbalance from flatspotting is now correctly modeled.
– Subsampling in brush model creates smoother response (this may slightly change the feeling and performance of tires, but note that it should be more accurate now).

UI / HUD / OPTIONS:
————-
– New UI with resolution 1920X1080.
– Removing hard-coded HUD elements shading and alpha.
– Added gizmo slider on realtime settings/display page to set engine vibration effect on cockpit.
– Download mode textbox gizmo now only displays name of mod file, not full path.

PLUGINS:
————
– Instead of on-path wetness and off-path wetness (neither of which were properly computed anyway), we now report minimum and maximum water depth along the main path to the plugin scoring interface.

Notes:
– If you had HDR legacy enabled, you will get a misalignment in UI after auto updating. You can fix this with a .json file edit to set.
– You need multiview enabled if using multiple / triple screens.

Update 12 (Build 156) Changelog (Febuary 28, 2013):
================================================== ===

GRAPHICS:
————————
Fixed shaders bug with vertex color adjustments
Fixed headlight bug where headligths would lag one frame behind
Fixed broken tire temp indicator on HUD MFD
Attempt to fix occasional smoke problem with transparent trainer

PHYSICS:
————————
Fixed some issues that happen when upgrades make a change in the number of tire compounds
Added “hard” anti-stall.
Made anti-stall a feature that can be permanently enabled rather than depending on anti-clutch driving aid (HDV: “”AntiStallLogic” =1″, default is 0)
Fixed HDV variable GraphicalOffset so that x&z values don’t affect normal driving physics (y value never did; note they all affect collision, though)
“RearFlapZoneSessions” and “RearFlapWetThreshold” should also be allowed in the RFM (in addition to the GDB); “RearFlapZone” remains the same, GDB-only
Converted TBC parameter “WetWeather” from boolean to floating point value so AIs could judge the level of wetness handled. Exactly zero should still be used for dry weather tires, for the sake of rules.
Added new optional algorithms for engine brake map.

UI / HUD:
————————
Fixed bug on main menu vehicle button if there are no cars installed
In controls menu, highlight controls currently being activated (helps me remember what button is what on my wheel)
Added new playerfile variable “OPT_UI_KeyNav” that toggles keyboard navigation of options.
Removed useless HUD parameters

REPLAYS:
————————
Fixed the situation where replays of races would crash right after track load

MODDING / PUBLIC DEV
————————
Updated ModMgr UI

AI:
————————
Prevent AI cars from fueling if race parameters disallow it.

MULTIPLAYER:
————————
Fixed a bug where 2 clients that have the same custom skin names would sometimes see the other skin on their local car.

Changelog (Febuary 4, 2013)

GRAPHICS:
————————
Modified skybox gamma
Added ability to specify that one part must break off before another does
Added “postrequisites”, other parts that must fall off if one part falls off.
Make front and rear flaps disappear if associated front and rear wings get detached.
Allow multiple (up to 4) prerequisites for detaching a part.

GAMEPLAY:
————————
Allowed DRS zones to apply to race only or to all sessions. This should probably go in the RFM rather than the GDB: “RearFlapZoneSessions=16″ for race-only, “RearFlapZoneSessions=31″ for all sessions including test days.

PHYSICS:
————————
Better tire abrasion computation.
More accurate ride height measurement (works on non-HAT surfaces now, too).
Small optimization in RealRoad processing.
Introduced tire rubber degradation model.
Realtime tire properties can no longer operate outside of their quasi-static analysis range (to prevent physics blow-ups when the tire gets really hot, for example).
In the tire tool, turn off wear as well if thermodynamics is disabled.
Temperature display added to +ttool realtime section.

AI:
————————
Broke out car lateral movement detection into two parts, one for the front and one for the rear, so that algorithms could more accurately access the situation. The specific issue fixed was one where a car losing front grip would take a wider turn was not appropriate for chicanes based on the condition and position of it’s rear end.

UI / HUD:
————————
Switched names of HUD mappings “Driving Aids” and “Vehicle Status” to match how they actually worked.
Added g-force trace and driving inputs to replay monitor page..
Fixed screenshots in UI.
Added RFM tree list and an RFM picture gizmo for new RFM tree list picker page.
Picking car again auto-selects the same class for opponents (accuracy depends somewhat on classes listed in the VEH).
Partly fixed the issue where you can sometimes see garage setups from other cars, although the real issue is an asset problem.
Fixed bug where main page vehicle display wouldn’t come up with the proper player vehicle until you select it from the vehicle selection page.

BUG FIXES / OPTIMIZATIONS:
————————
Fixed occasional crash-on-exit bug

MULTIPLAYER:
————————
Fixed it so that dedicated server defaults to previous RFM in list box.
Added upgrade-only classes to the list of available vehicle classes that the server can choose. This should fix the “Spark_F2B” (winged F2′s) problem.
Added custom skin propigation between clients in multiplayer game. In Multiplayer.ini “Download Custom Skins” must equal “1″ for the server and all clients (there is also a checkbox in the Display tab of the Settings pages). The custom skin path for your skin should look like, “\UserData\player\Settings\ISI_SkipBarber_2012\SKIPBARBER_05\Altskin1.dds” where “ISI_SkipBarber_2012″ is the name of the component this vehicle is from and “SKIPBARBER_05″ is the Veh file name (minus the “.veh”). NOTE: skin names must be less than 10 characters wide, not including extension.
Added dedicated server option to allow/disallow skin transfers.

PLUGINS:
————————
Fixed reporting of tire longitudinal force to plugins
Fixed a problem in Max exporter when exporting vertex alpha from Vertex Paint modifier

REPLAYS:
————————
Allow more than two visual tire compounds, and store/transmit that data in replay/multiplayer.
Fixed ancient bug that prevented replay fidelity from working exactly as intended.
Added code to not load a replay if the mod could not be loaded.

MODDING / PUBLIC DEV
————————
Fixed some sorting and display problems in ModMgr
