Kunos Simulazioni have released version 1.7 of Assetto Corsa, available to download now via the Steam network. Coming with a variety of updates and improvements, including the ability to jump the lights at race start and brake temperature simulation on a selection of vehicles, the new update brings a healthy amount of new and exciting features and fixes for the popular racing simulation. With a vast majority of cars already in game benefiting from version 7 tyre technology, the team over at Kunos have again stretched their understanding of the simulation values associated with the rubber on the road and brought what is claimed to be significant updates to a few of the 'Red Pack' DLC cars that have moved on to the new version 10 iteration of tyre in game. Kunos have stated that the new tyre version - "introduces improvements of the current v7 tyre model, with tyre temperatures being more sensitive to initial tyre pressures, improvements in the realigning force and more. Furthermore, as an additional proof of KUNOS commitment to realistic physics, we introduce the new tyre model v10 for some of the new RedPack cars. The new tyre model follows the handling philosophy of KUNOS and offers a very similar driving feel, but at the same time is a complete rewrite that permits us to validate much better our results with real life data, hence the jump from v7 to v10" Version 10 tyres will eventually be rolled out to all official cars within the game at a similar time to when the studio bring brake temperatures to more than a handful of cars contained within the 'Red Pack' DLC release, including more features like air ducts and pads to be implemented at a later date. Sizable in its scope, the new update also includes the unlocking of the latest DLC offering from the Italian studio, the much anticipated 'Red Pack'. Featuring eight vehicles (listed below) and a laser scanned version of the RedBull Ring in Austria, the new DLC download brings modern Formula One machinery to the sim for the first time. The 2015 vintage Ferrari SF15-T comes complete with simulation values added for all the modern power pack technology associated with recent Grand Prix cars, such as the MGU-K, MGU-H, ICE with variable Turbo, Batteries charging and energy deployment. Physics features commands are now configurable on keyboard and controllers. Relevant features like Traction Control, ABS, Turbo, MGU-K, MGU-H, Engine brake etc, can be configured on the gaming device, and on the keyboard. All in all, exciting times for fans of Assetto Corsa!
