    Reiza Studios have deployed a new update to Automobilista, bringing the title to build 1.1.5 and adding a number of enhancements and fixes to the sim. Alongside the new build, Reiza have also released their second DLC for the game, bringing the legendary Enzo e Dino Ferrari circuit in four historic configurations.

    Highlights from the new build include further tweaks to the game AI, allegedly improving behaviour during close proximity to other cars on track. A terrain fix for Cadwell Park has been included that removes an issue with players falling through terrain on right hand side just before the mountain section and physics adjustments to the F-Trainer and MRC2000 vehicles.

    As well as the new build release, Reiza have also made available the second DLC instalment for the game in the form of the Imola DLC. With variations of the famous circuit from 1972, 1988, 2001 and 2016 included, the new DLC is a tour de force replicating this legendary venue in many of its unique and challenging layouts from four decades of history.

    Automobilista - Imola Release Trailer


    "Host of the San Marino GP for 26 years, Imola is a venue full of history where racing gods have risen and fallen. This pack features 4 distinct versions of this legendary track from 4 different decades - 1972, 1988, 2001 and 2016.

    In the raw, classic, and dangerously fast original layout last used in 1972 your nerves will be tested as you blast through the picturesque roads, with no chicanes and no run-off areas - an old style, high speed blast surrounded by trees and armco.

    The 1988 version featured the chicanes at Acque Mineralli, the top of the hill (Variante Alta) and at the end of the lap (Variante Basa). This is the layout that hosted many classic races in the late 80s and early 90s, until Ayrton Senna´s tragic accident at the then high speed Tamburello corner.

    The 2001 version saw reforms to improve safety after the accidents of 1994, with chicanes added to the Tamburello and Villeneuve sweepers. The track remained an unique challenge, in which drivers had to balance cars around the high curbs in order to be fast. Michael Schumacher mastered this layout winning there 6 times.

    Finally the modern 2016 version, which has brought back the high speed nature of the track by creating a flat-out section from the exit of Rivazza all the way to the Tamburello chicane".

  11. Had some issues to update the game :(
    My anti-virus ( Norton Internet Security ) was putting AMS.exe, file Heur.AdvML.B, into quarentine and couldn't restore the file, nor exclued from future scans. Only on my 3rd attempt updating the game i had success.
    Last week there was people warning about this, in Reiza Forums, but i wasn't being affected... till now.
    All good now, but please Reiza, take a look on this.

    On topic...
    I'm speechless with this... I'm the only thinking this just shows how much Reiza cares about us, giving Community an option to not lose that League / Race you might have tonight, just because of the update? I never, ever ,saw other Studio do this. Props to Reiza :thumbsup:

    Enough of Blá, Blá, Blá. Let me go do some laps at Imola... Oh, and bring on those Trucks :D

  15. I had the same thing happen to me. I immediately clicked on the notification from Norton and chose to put the files back, which solved the issue. A previous time it happened, it was only the .exe file. That was easily fixed by going into Norton's security history and taking the file out of quarantine too.
