    iRacing.com have released a nice on board video of the McLaren Honda MP4-30 driving a fast lap around the upcoming new laserscanned Imola racetrack - available in the coming weeks as part of the season 3 update.

    Showing more pace and reliability than its real world counterpart, the McLaren Honda can be seen lapping the former home of the San Marino Grand Prix in what has been a much promoted new piece of content for the online only racing simulator.

    iRacing.com first announced an agreement to bring Imola to their simulator all the way back in December 2013, however development on the release has been slower than expected. The new Imola track is due to be released later this month as part of the new season 3 update.

    Season 3 Changelog:

    Website
    • The Race Guide now has a filter for filtering out “unofficial” sessions.
    • League Admins may now quickly add a session to one of their active league seasons by clicking the plus icon when looking at their “All Leagues/Find Leagues” page.

    • The Date column on the My Series Results page now displays the LOCAL date and time in the cell, and both GMT and LOCAL time in the tooltip.
    • The My Series Results page now shows detailed pagination details for searches with more results than can be displayed (ie: Showing Results 1-25 of 36 Total Results).
    • When a user selects a series on the Series Results page, the page will now look for data relevant to that selected series. If any is available, the page will display a link that takes the user to the archival page that shows ALL results from ALL races from that season.
    • Adding an item to your cart should now be more responsive.
    • Adjusted the font sizes of the homepage News section for increased readability.
    • Fixed the myRacers Online pop-out menu.

    • Fixed an issue with the display of promotional prices where they would drop a zero from the cents value.
    • Fixed an issue where some users were able to see region restricted series for which they were not qualified.
    • All chat features have been removed.
    • The Previous and Past Seasons page is now depreciated.
    Paint Kit
    • Leo Bodnar, Simability, and Simsteering logos have been added to the Paint Kit.
    • The Inside Sim Racing logo has been revised.
    Simulation
    • The description of the "maxParticleThreads" option in the "app.ini" file has been updated to include the value of "0" as an acceptable option.
    Race Sessions
    • Fixed a bug that was preventing League Sessions with qualifiers and without a race from using shared pit stalls.
    Dynamic Track
    • Dust and gravel can now be dragged and thrown onto the track by wayward cars, which then interacts with the tires to affect grip and accumulation of debris on the tires.
    • The way the Dynamic Track is stored in a replay has been improved to allow sudden changes in the track surface state to be seen immediately.
    Rendering
    • The cubemaps for all tracks have been updated. This will cause much brighter reflections off of objects.
    • Post-processing effects have been removed from the cubemaps for all night tracks. This was useful in the past, but is no longer needed.
    • Fixed occlusion culling so that very large nearby objects no longer incorrectly disappear, especially in mirrors.
    • Fixed a crash that could happen when trying to draw a lot of cars in the world with headlights.
    • Improved the algorithm for updating Dynamic Track textures to ensure timely graphical updates.
    • The option, "DynamicTrackTextureUpdateRate," has been added to the "renderer.ini" file to control the maximum frequency of Dynamic Track texture updates.
    • The option, "ParticlesDetail," has been renamed to "ParticleDetail" in the "renderer.ini" file.
    • Hang logging is now disabled by default, but can be enabled in order to help us investigate issues.
    DirectX 9
    • Fixed a memory leak that occurred when rendering a Tech Track.
    DirectX 11
    • Tech Tracks utilizing direct laser scan data can now be rendered in DirectX 11.
    • Glowing light effects now interact more accurately with fo
    • Ghost car now renders correctly.
    • The old spark system is now hidden if PopcornFX is active, due to the new PopcornFX spark system.
    • Adjusted the graphical autoconfig selection of default graphics modes to favor higher refresh rates and standard scaling modes.
    • Fixed several bugs with night lighting and high detail headlights, where DX11 could look significantly different than DX9.
    • Fixed an issue with track shaders when using "Low" Shader Detail.
    • Fixed an issue where random flickers of geometry could render along with some particles.
    • Fixed several issues related to the antialiasing of painted lines and other surface decals at both night and day tracks.
    • Fixed an issue where tire rims could appear white when using the "Low" Shader Detail setting.
    • Fixed the Sim's UI to correctly toggle between fullscreen and windowed cursor modes when the Sim toggles between fullscreen and windowed modes.
    • Fixed an issue where shadow volume geometry was being created at load time even when the "ShaderQuality" option in the "DX11.ini" file was set to 0.
    • If DirectX 11 fails to report a display mode, a fake display mode is created. This may allow the Simulator to operate in a windowed display mode or a fake fullscreen.
    • All new installations of iRacing will now default to DirectX 11.
    PopcornFX
    • All tracks now have complete particle collision, so particles such as dirt, sparks, and gravel can bounce along the surface instead of passing through the environment.
    Audio
    • Improved road rolling, aero, and wind sounds for all vehicles.
    • Scrape noises for Armco fence rails and vehicle undertrays have been improved.
    Tires
    • Improved the effective tire grip calculations related to marbles and dust on track.
    Incident Points
    • The Info tab on the Session screen will now show your incident point count for the current session. In a team event, it will also show the count for your team as a whole.
    • The Entries tab now has a new "INCS" column. In a live session, you will see the incident point counts for the current session. There is no way to "back up" and see the incident point counts for prior sessions. In race sessions, everyone is only able to see their own team's incident point counts. However, in a non-race session, or once a race session is complete, everyone is able to see the incident point counts for everyone. Admins are also able to see the incident point counts for everyone during a race session.
    • watching a replay, you will see the incident point counts for the session replay you are currently watching. The same session visibility restrictions apply to watching replays (so you can not circumvent the restriction during an event by having a teammate save the replay, and load it to see everyone's incident point counts).
    Radio
    • Fixed a rare issue that could allow you to transmit a text chat message that would be rejected by the race server. If the configuration of your radio changed just as you finished the message, it was possible that the message would be created with the identifying information from the prior configuration of the radio.
    Video Capture
    • Timestamp will no longer appear on screen captures.
    • A new video capture library has been added.
    • Fixed an issue that was preventing some members from utilizing this feature.
    Telemetry
    • Three new telemetry variables related to incident count have been added. If the event is a team race, the incident count is broken down in different ways; but if not, then all three variables will equal the same value. The variables are as follows:
      - - “PlayerCarTeamIncidentCount” = Incident count this session for your whole team.
      - - “PlayerCarMyIncidentCount” = Incident count this session just for you.
      - - “PlayerCarDriverIncidentCount” = Incident count this session for the current team driver.
    • A new session string entry, "WeekendInfo:WeekendOptions:IncidentLimit:," has been added that indicates the maximum incidents you can receive before being ejected from the session.
    • A new telemetry variable, "PlayerTrackSurface," has been added that indicates the track surface under the player vehicle. This is available both live and on disk.
    • A new telemetry variable, "PlayerCarIdx," has been added that allows developers to access the current player's car index without loading up the session string. This is available both live and on disk.
    • Fixed a bug where setup information in a telemetry session string could become stal
    iRacing API
    • A new iRacing SDK disk client C++ wrapper has been added that will allow you to read ".ibt" files with less effort.
    • A new iRacing SDK example application, "irsdk_ffbforce," has been added that can analyze the wheel torque data found in our telemetry files.
    ARX
    • A new Force Feedback demo (ffb_demo) has been added that can help users setup Force Feedback for their racing wheel in the Sim.
    • ARX clients can now send text chat messages to the Sim via the call: irArx.sendChatString("message"). Additionally, these messages can include macro commands.
    Oculus Rift
    • Support for the consumer version of the Oculus Rift has been added to iRacing, based on the Oculus 1.3.2 SDK. This new support is available only in the DirectX 11 version of the Simulator. The DirectX 9 version of the Simulator is still based on the Oculus 0.4.2 BETA SDK.
    • Whenever the Oculus Rift is in use, the Simulator will mirror its output to a resizable window on the desktop. You may resize/position this window. Using a very small mirror window may reduce mouse pointer precision inside of the Rift, so try not to make it too tiny. The window will remember any adjustments to dimensions/positions between sessions.
    • The following section of Rift related options will be added to the Oculus Rift section of the “rendererDX11.ini” file after you exit the simulator for the first time:
      - - RiftEnabled=1 ; Enable Oculus Rift Detection/Support
      - - PixelsPerDisplayPixel=150 ; (50% to 300%): 125%=1.25, over 100% may hurt performance!
      - - AutoSelect=0 ; Use Rift, if detected, without prompting
      - - AutoCenter=0 ; Re-center the HMD pose when health/safety warning disappears
      - - UIScreenSize=130 ; 3D UI screen width (cm)
      - - UIScreenDistance=70 ; 3D UI screen distance (cm)
      - - MirrorEnabled=1 ; Create mirror texture and render copies on screen.
    • The “RiftEnabled” option allows you to disable the auto-detection of the Rift if necessary, and simply disables it completely. For instance if you do not want to be prompted to use the Rift every session, you can disable that here.
    • The “PixelsPerDisplayPixel” option adjusts the rendering resolution for the scene before it is warped into the Rift’s display. It defaults to 1.5 which improves quality but may hurt performance on some systems. If you are having performance problems with the Rift, try lowering this to 1.0 (100%). If you are still having issues, try lowering your graphics settings. It is important to have a good frame rate when using the Rift.
    • The “AutoSelect” option is useful if you always want to use the Rift, and want to automatically skip the prompt.
    • The “AutoCenter” option will automatically re-center the head tracking when you acknowledge the health and safety warning, or when loading completes, whichever comes first. Otherwise, to re-center tracking during loading, hit the space bar. Or to re-center tracking after loading use the assigned control (see the options screens for the “HMD re-center” command). You may reassign this command to a keyboard key combo or to a controller input.
    • The “UIScreenSize” and “UIScreenDistance” options control how far away and how large the user interface screens appear inside of the virtual world.
    • The “MirrorEnabled” option allows you to disable the mirror output rendering to the desktop window. This will save some video memory and, in some cases, slightly improve frame rate.
    Peripherals
    • A new feature, called "forceMap," has been added. By adding a file named, "forceMap.csv" to your [documents]\iRacing\ folder you can remap your racing wheel's force output to make it more linear. See the thread http://members.iracing.com/jforum/posts/list/3482238.page for more details.
    • Windows 10 support for Xbox One controllers is now enabled by default.
    CARS
    Aston Martin DBR9 GT1

    • The baseline setup for this vehicle has been updated.
    • The aerodynamic calculations have been adjusted with the goal of making aero performance more linear and predictable in response to changes in ride heights. Also, aero is now dependent on vehicle roll angle, so you will find greater downforce and a forward aero balance shift when cornering. Overall, these changes resulted in a rearward shift of aero balance (more aero understeer). This allowed us to reduce the size of the front anti-roll bars to a more representative dimension. Finally, we increased the aero drag penalty for running greater rear wing levels so that running maximum rear wing is not the optimum at most tracks.
    • Minimum vehicle weight has been increased to 7.1 kg for GT1 BOP.
    • The tire compound has been adjusted to better handle high operating temperatures; it now is matched to the Chevrolet Corvette C6.R GT1.
    • Three different selectable brake pad materials (low friction, medium friction, and high friction), will now make it easier to tune brake bite for different tracks and pedal setups.
    • The pit sequence has been altered so refueling takes place before tire changes. The car is not lifted onto airjacks until refueling is finished, and it continues to use two tire guns and carriers.
    • Mirrors have been adjusted.
    Audi R8 LMS GT3
    • Deactivated the fuel mixture increment, decrement, and level controls for this vehicle.
    • Throttle Shaping tooltip text has been updated to no longer overrun the available space.
    • Mirrors have been adjusted.
    BMW Z4 GT3
    • Fixed a bug in the traction control algorithm so that it is now only applied if the throttle is greater than 5% (which affects both the sound and the initial transition into active traction control when applying throttle).
    • Mirrors have been adjusted.
    Cadillac CTS-V Racecar
    • Aerodynamics have been modified to make them more benign; very similar in character to the GT1 cars.
    • Tire construction has been changed to be more forgiving at and over the limit.
    • Front bump rubbers have been re-introduced to better reflect real-life setups.
    • Mirrors have been adjusted.
    Chevrolet Corvette C6.R GT1
    • The baseline setup for this vehicle has been updated.
    • The aerodynamic calculations have been adjusted with the goal of making aero performance more linear and predictable in response to changes in ride heights. Also, aero is now dependent on vehicle roll angle so you will find greater downforce and a forward aero balance shift when cornering. Overall, these changes resulted in a rearward shift of aero balance (more aero understeer). This allowed us to reduce the size of the front anti-roll bar to a more representative dimension. Finally, we increased the aero drag penalty for running greater rear wing levels so that running maximum rear wing is not the optimum at most tracks.
    • A more temperature resistant tire compound has been added, so that the Chevrolet Corvette C6.R GT1 is more competitive with the Aston Martin DBR9 GT1, particularly in hot ambient conditions.
    • Three different selectable brake pad materials (low friction, medium friction, and high friction), will now make it easier to tune brake bite for different tracks and pedal setups.
    • The pit sequence has been altered so refueling takes place before tire changes. The car is not lifted onto airjacks until refueling is finished, and it continues to use two tire guns and carriers.
    Dallara DW12
    • Indiana Donor Network sponsored KV Racing Technology Dallara DW12 Indycar scheme has been added to the Paint Kit. This is a non-color changeable scheme.
    • Several new Levels of Detail (LODs) have been added to the car model to aid performance, especially during night racing.
    Ford Falcon FG V8
    • The baseline setup for this vehicle has been updated.
    • Significant modifications have been made to the 2014 V8 Supercars to address handling issues, particularly over bumps and curbs. These modifications include:
      - - Chassis torsional stiffness has been added.
      - - Available rear damping forces have been increased.
      - - Spring perch offsets have been added in the Garage. This provides the ability to adjust bump rubber engagements without changing ride heights via combined damper length and perch offset adjustments. Spring perch offsets that produce less than 40-50mm of shock deflection in the Garage are not recommended.
    • This vehicle now uses V6 tires. These tires are capable of maintaining grip at higher operating temperatures, so they should feel less greasy in hot ambient conditions and more catchable in big slides. However, be aware that grip will be slower to build when the tires are cold, so it will feel icy for the first few laps when ambient temperatures are cold. Also, you will nominally find peak grip at around the 3rd to 5th timed lap on a qualifying run. We understand this is not ideal for 2-lap qualifying runs, but felt that better grip at high operating temperatures (where the tires run most of the time) would be a worthwhile tradeoff against a relatively slow build of grip when cold.
    • Chassis torsional stiffness has been reduced to help the rear lose lateral grip more progressively.
    • Rear suspension geometry has been adjusted to slightly reduce the effect of camber sensitivity.
    • Fixed a display issue with the digits on the steering wheel display.
    • This vehicle has been converted to use PBR shaders.
    • Updated engine, gear shift, transmission, backfire, and rev limiter sounds, and pit limiter sounds have been added.
    Ford GT
    • The baseline setup for this vehicle has been updated.
    • The pit sequence has been altered so refueling takes place before tire changes. The car is not lifted onto airjacks until refueling is finished, and it continues to use two tire guns and carriers.
    Ford GT GT3
    • The baseline setup for this vehicle has been updated.
    • Slight reduction in aero drag for GT3 BOP.
    • Changed differential build for less overall locking and less locking on throttle to address feedback that the car snaps to oversteer when putting power down.
    • Fixed a bug in the traction control algorithm so that it is now only applied if the throttle is greater than 5% (which affects both the sound and the initial transition into active traction control when applying throttle).
    Ford Mustang FR500S
    • Updated engine, gear shift, transmission, and brake sounds.
    Formula Renault 2.0
    • A taller final drive has been added so now this vehicle can be used in a draft on high speed ovals.
    • Handling by Opponent vehicles has been improved.
    • Mirrors have been adjusted.
    Holden Commodore VF V8
    • The baseline setup for this vehicle has been updated.
    • Significant modifications have been made to the 2014 V8 Supercars to address handling issues, particularly over bumps and curbs. These modifications include:
      - - Chassis torsional stiffness has been added.
      - - Available rear damping forces have been increased.
      - - Spring perch offsets have been added in the Garage.

    • Updated engine, gear shift, transmission, backfire, and rev limiter sounds, and pit limiter sounds have been added.
    HPD ARX-01c
    • The pit sequence has been altered so refueling takes place before tire changes. The car is not lifted onto airjacks until refueling is finished, and it continues to use two tire guns and carriers.
    • Particle collision bodies, that were previously missing, have been added to this vehicle.
    Kia Optima
    • Various new sounds have been implemented for this vehicle, including: engine, gear shift, transmission, brakes, backfires, and limiters.
    Global Mazda MX-5 Cup
    • The baseline setup for this vehicle has been updated.
    • The extended length of the rear dampers has been reduced in order to prevent heavy engagement of the rear bump rubbers, which had resulted in rear instability, especially at curb strikes.
    • The operating temperatures of the tires have been reduced to help maintain more consistent grip throughout longer runs.
    • Mirrors have been adjusted.
    • Fixed an issue with an incorrect normals texture reference with the vehicle tires.
    McLaren MP4-12C GT3
    • Fixed a bug in the traction control algorithm so that it is now only applied if the throttle is greater than 5% (which affects both the sound and the initial transition into active traction control when applying throttle).
    McLaren MP4-30
    • Fixed an issue with the deployment of the Energy Recovery System (ERS). If the driver crashed repeatedly on out laps, the counter that determines the amount of energy to transfer from the ERS battery for deployment to the MGU-K did not reset. Once this counter reached a rules-specified maximum, no more energy could be transferred from the ERS battery to the MGU-K until the driver reached the next valid lap crossing. The result was that the driver may have experienced low deployment on out lap(s) until they managed to successfully complete an out lap without crashing.
    • Mirrors have been adjusted.
    Mercedes-AMG GT3
    • Fixed a bug in the traction control algorithm so that it is now only applied if the throttle is greater than 5% (which affects both the sound and the initial transition into active traction control when applying throttle).
    • The Low Fuel warning has been updated to trigger off of fuel level instead of fuel pressure. The warning now activates when the fuel level drops below 10 liters.
    • Mirrors have been adjusted.

    I like the fact that Imola is coming to iRacing but still butthurt about the kerbs though. Them new Italian flag colored kerbs look so good compared to these old boring ones. :|
     
  3. I am loving the new particle model. Having the gravel and dirt spread across the track after someone goes off and then bouncing off the windscreen and picking up on the tyres in the races adds so much immersion and makes other games dynamic tracks seem a little, well boring!
