    Automobilista Update 0.9.4.jpg
    Ever impressive Brazilian development team Reiza Studios have released version 0.9.4 of the Steam Early Access title Automobilista and with it brings a number of useful updates to the game.

    Notable enhancements include work on in-game shaders and lighting to bring about a more accurate and realistic feel to the many unique circuits. Work on improving particle display from dust and dirt kicked up by cars on track has been undertaken and could support better performance as well as stutter reduction for some users.

    Alongside today's game update Reiza have also confirmed a new detailed development roadmap currently being finalised. Keep an eye out on RaceDepartment for more details as and when they become available.

    Build v0.9.4 changelog below:

    • Fixed UI bug that could cause game to crash when clicking to exit it
    • Adjusted shaders & environment RGB settings for some lighting & color accuracy improvements
    • Adjusted AI slip reaction (improving reaction to front wheel grip loss)
    • Slightly improved collision detection & reaction (also slightly improves AI awareness to other cars)
    • Corrected TV Cockpit camera orientation rate in several cars
    • Fixed error which caused dust smoke from the dirt side of the road to be almost invisible (might actually resolve some performance / stuttering issues too)
    • Fixed bug with Salvador & Ribeirão dynamic road conditions not working
    • DynHUD: TelemetryInfo.mLapDistance is zeroed before crossing S/F line in a race session; Fixed NPE in LaptimesRecorder
    • Further tweaking to AI behavior to tone down aggression in close racing conditions (does not apply to mod cars or tracks unless these use the same AIW values)
    • Corrected AI qualifying performance in several tracks (were missing the ratio parameter that makes AI slightly faster in quali)
    • VIR: Tweaked road spec and changed event dates, updated skies accordingly
    • Spielberg (all versions): Shot down misplaced birds
    • Boxer Cup: LOD optimization; corrected skin alpha channels; callibrated AI performance; tweaked default Setup & tire physics
    • F-Extreme: Fixed bug with DRS flap opening not being visible; Fixed visibility of driver arms in T-Cam; Corrected wheel mount position & RPM leds; Set minimal weight to 702kg as per 2015 rules; adjusted weight distribution & tire physics
    • F-Reiza: Adjusted tire physics; Corrected wheel mount position & RPM leds
    • F-V10: Adjusted traction control scale levels
    • F-3: Corrected onboard cameras
    • Opalas: Fixed shift light not working
    Whilst the recent build update contains many fixes and improvements to a title already shaping up nicely during this Early Access phase a couple of legacy issues still remain from previous versions. The in game DynHUD is still prone to freezing in Multiplayer when switching to race and saved multiplayer replays continue to present the appearance of floating cars when on track. Reiza advise they intend to address these issues in the next update, along with some other Multiplayer-related tasks.

    When I assign a button it doesn't unassign old assignment, You can assign one button to multiple commands.

    Yep, so if you want DRS and Push to pass mapped to the same thing, then you can do that to save buttons for similar functions on different cars.

    That's odd, you would think that would be a profile thing, but thanks for heads up.

  9. Time trials are showing a un-available tab :(
    But the RGB color changes you can notice and it makes the game look better..More vibrant thats for sure :)
     
  10. This is so unbelievably liberating yet implemented so simply I can't help but gush about Reiza in the manner that's threatening to grant me fanboy status.

  12. damn, kansai GP gone. Best track deleted from the game.
    Still the best racing game, but that is a major blow.

    Yeah it's gotta be a mistake because the East layout is still there.

    My favorite Sim just keeps getting better...and I am very interested / excited in what Reiza has in store for the future if AMS is anything to go by, as this for me personally is almost the perfect Sim with fantastic FFB, physics, Audio and very decent graphic for an older game engine...exciting times ahead for sure.

    Yeeeee :)

    Still an annoying bug that the game in full screen loses focus and the desktop appears often during racing. Cannot play windowed here btw.

    Yes I know, what what on earth is this about?
     
  20. Rieza you suck...... I love my V8 supercars, especially FORD V8s and every time I get a Mod that includes them that works , your updates destroys them and stops them from working in race mode. I am feeling I should just stick to Projects Cars, Race 07 or rFactor 1. At least they have a mod that has the current FGX Falcon That I love...
