    Assetto Corsa Update 1.14.4.jpg
    Kunos Simulazioni have deployed a small update to Assetto Corsa today, adding a couple of very interesting new things...

    Released without much fanfare for the PC version of the title, the new 1.14.4 update does address a few minor issues existing within the latest build 1.14 version of the title, however perhaps the most noteworthy item in the new change log should be the live axle update for not one but five of the cars already in the simulation.

    Kunos developer Stefano Casillo‏ recently took to social media to congratulate Assetto Corsa physics engineer Aristotelis Vasilakos who "finally solved a problem on the solid axle that have been troubling my sleep for years", however players of the sim never expected the fruits of those labours to be deployed to the public version of the title quite so soon. It looks like with the first deployment to the Alfa Romeo GTA, Ford Escort RS, Maserati 250F 6cyl & 12cyl, Toyota AE86 (in both stock, drift & tuned variants) of the new live axle 'breakthrough' we are starting to see a slight shift in direction for some of the cars in game, all for the better in Kunos' quest for realism with Assetto Corsa.

    Other highlights from the new build include some further AI tweaks on a couple of cars and a number of real world liveries for the awesome Maserati MC12 GT1 that was introduced to the sim as part of the recent 'Ready to Race' DLC pack.

    Build 1.14.4 Change Log:
    • Improved Ferrari 312T and Lotus 72D AI
    • Renamed CPU line in Render Stats app "MAIN_T" as "Main thread" to avoid confusions
    • Corrected Mercedes C9 front tyre wear
    • Corrected Glickenhaus SCG003 setup dampers slider numbering
    • Improved live axle simulation
    • Updated live axle physics for Alfa Romeo GTA, Ford Escort RS, Maserati 250F 6cyl & 12cyl, Toyota AE86 stock, drift & tuned. Old setups might need to be tweaked again.
    • Added seconds in timeline when replay length is over 1 hour
    • Fixed Delta Graph script on Mclaren P1 GTR
    • Real-life racing liveries added for the Maserati MC12 GT1

    Available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, Assetto Corsa is a racing simulation from Kunos Simulazioni currently has up to 75% off on Steam.

    It seems like the GTA is either a little slower now, in need of a better setup or a bit more difficult to drive. I've done some laps on our server in the old and new version, both times at 97% grip. This was the difference in lap & sector times for me at Monza Junior.

    Cant wait to try this out.. thanks for the update..:thumbsup:

    Maybe on day they will sort out the stupid gas gut penalty system that's in place at present for online racing,
    Practice and Qually is perfect with laps cancelled.. but in race its a joke.. so unrealistic and as we found out recently it can spoil the race for the guy behind the slowing car.. yes we can turn the gas cut penalty off, but then you can abuse the limits again..:roflmao::roflmao:
    just something simple would do, 3 times out of bounds and you get a drive through... allow us to set this number in the server.. simple but effective..
    how come you can enter the pits flat out and not get a penalty for speeding..So hard to control this with online racing..:mad:
    and i want to select my gears before the start of the race...having to wait until the game allows me is
    another stupid thing..:mad:
    why do we get a jump start with paddles..if you click it in gear.. with your foot on the brake..(operator error, it can be sorted with practice) :)
    all these little things really spoil the experience for online..


    So still along way to go before its ready for a proper league/serries at RD...;)

    Already got all available skin mods for that car but getting them officially is nice, especially for console users.

    When red lights starts its countdown you can slip the car in what gear you like, H shifter or paddeles doesn't matter,just remember to depress the clutch ;), If you use auto clutch then you can do the same, BUT your car will start moving on the grid--because its auto clutch I guess :D
    Track cutting , Pit penalty App could be used for this ,it's standard on other community sites ,you can do 3-4 cuts in a race after that You have to make a pit stop--if you dont its DQ, the drawback is that all drivers needs to have it installed ( it can often be seen in chat as " plp", that means a driver have it on )

    I see they have added the console derived player name fonts now too. It just makes names harder to read. Great move.

    Ping number removal, now the console font... :/

    Does anybody know how to get the update in south uk? I have search for 1.14.4 in steam and it can't find it? Thanks, oops just checked the changelog and had a go in one of the old Mazza's and I think I must already have it. Much better. Sorry.

    Maybe try editing assettocorsa\system\cfg\name_displayer.ini
    You can adjust scale, remove flags etc.
    To use the old style, use SIMPLE_LABEL=1

    I'm no fan of the current penalty system either, however I've learned to live with it.
