GAMEPLAY:
- Added new game modes specific to the British GT season (playable as single race or via championship mode).
- AI - added multiclass support for single player races with AI (exclusive to the British GT season).
- AI - grouped qualifying in multiclass race weekends (when the session is set to 10 minutes or more).
- AI - tweaked scaling of "accelerated" session results when skipping sessions.
- AI - tweaked pace on wet track, reduced cornering ability in the wet.
- AI - regular blue flag behaviour disabled when GT3 cars are lapping GT4s.
- AI - increased driver error possibility in wet weather.
- Tweaked AI genome on Kyalami.
- Pit box assignment now starts from the pit exit at Spa to reduce outlap time.
- Formation lap - added threshold zone in the double file formation phase in the widget formation type to avoid undeserved penalties for cars in the inside lane on tracks with tight final corners.
- Fix for saving game while standing in the pitbox.
- Fixed potentially corrupted driving camera view after pressing look-behind and camera cycle inputs simultaneously or during session transitions.
- Fixed an occasional game crash caused by sparks emitters.

UI:
- Added British GT season selection item.
- Server List - re-organization and extra optional filtering for the lobby page.
Dual mode: using filters will query the entire server list, while not using filters will only list the 100 weighted servers as before.
Note that using the filters might result in a slower server list query due to higher data load.
- Server List - trigger request of only immediately accessible servers when appropriate.
- Server List - pulse the refresh list button whenever the list should be refreshed
When toggling from filtered/sorted full-server list mode to default 100 weighted server list.
- Server List - refresh button focus steal fix with mouseover.
- MFD - added new widget item in the MFD for last lap, lap count, time remaining.
MFD now shows all vital racing information, allowing for a more compact racing HUD per user preference.
- Garage screen - added track name and season on the garage screen under server name inside the server.
- Added mirror FOV adjustment via cameraSettings.json (mirrorFOV item).
- Added virtual mirror size and vertical positioning offset adjustment via hud.json (virtualMirrorSize and virtualMirrorVerticalOffset).
- Localization updates in various langauges.
- Added missing texts to the "How to improve" section of the ratings profile.
- Controller - fixed mislabeled TC Cut 4 entry on the controller input assignment page.
- Championship page - AI skill and aggression exposed per championship round.
- Removed standings from replay HUD definition - instead, standings added as page widget that is now navigable with controller/keyboard and visible in VR.
- Minor restyling of the pedals widget - original functionality of input/full input indicators restored.
- Fixed Next/Skip Session entry in Pause menu depending on whether session is active or inactive.
- Styling changes to brand/team selection tiles.
- Team selection in MP now indicates series participation.

PHYSICS:
- Added backend support for British GT BOP.
NOTE: the British GT season has its own specific BOP for shared tracks (Silverstone, Brands Hatch and Spa) when in single player (only when played through the British GT season in the UI).
In Multiplayer, the shared tracks (Silverstone, Brands Hatch and Spa) always use the GT World Challenge and GT4 European Series BOP.
- Fixed unintended asymmetrical setup presets on various cars.
- BOP-regulated fuel tank limitation implemented in 2020-season Paul Ricard and Spa, values set for all cars.
- Improved vehicle ground collision simulation.
- Improved rev limiter behaviour of the AMR V8 Vantage GT3, AMR V12 Vantage GT3 and Lexus RC F GT3.
- Improved heat generation versus tyre volume, wear, pressure influence for all GT3 and GT4 wet tyres.
Potentially improves the handling of lighter, mid-engined cars in the rain.
Improves the durability of wet tyres in light-moderate wet conditions.
- Fixed front-rear inconsistency in cold wet tyre temperatures on the Audi R8 GT4 and Maserati GT4.
- Reduced settling time when adjusting the suspension of the Honda NSX GT3 Evo and Lamborghini Huracán GT3.
- Improved the influence of ambient conditions on water dissipation in the dynamic track model.
- Fixed an issue with cloud level incorrectly influencing water dissipation during night hours.
- Minor adjustments to the dynamic weather scaling (both single and multiplayer).
Wider cloud variation, lower potential rain deviation from base and lowered maximum weather drift range throughout the weekend.
General notes and guidelines still apply. In MP, variability combined with sessions set on the 3rd day of the weekend still has a chance of notable deviation from base settings.
- Shared memory - added global flags, yellow flags per sector, MFD tyre pressures, fuel to add, tyre set and compound names to shared memory writer.

GRAPHICS:
- Added real-time contact shadows in Visual Options.
Less taxing alternative to using the highest settings for regular dynamic shadows, also helps with shadow pop and undercar shadows when objects leave the shadow cascade.
- Improved baked skid mark visuals.
- Improved dynamic skid mark visuals using a different shader technique.
- Improved asphalt shaders across all tracks.
- Global exposure tweaks for overcast conditions.
- Global exposure tweaks for certain tracks.
- Fixed missing sun occluders at various tracks.
- Fixed or reduced mesh clipping with numberplate on the doors on the Bentley and Mclaren 720 LODs.
- Updated dash display of the Ferrari 488 GT3 Evo 2020.

AUDIO:
- Audio: potential fix for duplicated ambient sounds on certain tracks.
- Improved distance filter for exterior engine sounds.
- Improved internal audio blend with F7 camera.
- Enabled airport ambient sounds at Donington Park and Circuit Paul Ricard.
- Jet plane sound at Donington Park.


British GT Pack DLC

ACC Middle.jpg


Alongside the meaty new update notes, Kunos have also released the new British GT Pack DLC for the simulation, adding 40 liveries, 70 drivers and three brand-new circuits to the title.

As part of the new DLC multi-class racing will be available exclusively to the British GT Pack DLC mode - however, players who do not yet own the GT4 European Series and the British GT DLC packs can still enjoy mixed-class races on all base content tracks and race with GT4 opponents on the same track.

Original Source: ACC Steam

Assetto Corsa Competizione is available now on PC and console.

Instant buy for me, of course. Tried a quick spin around all tracks. Donington is my favorite by a long shot, but Oulton Park is also great. Not sold on Snetterton yet, too many slow corners, but I must try it more to get it, maybe.

One question: I do we select the multiclass racing option in the menus? Can’t see it anywhere.

Can't wait to try the UK tracks, especially Oulton Park.

I am hoping this fixes the "hovering" cars, it's the only thing that breaks immersion for me -

ACC has massively grown on me with the last few Updates!
For Years I was mostly racing Historic Content, but since I have this Sim, I'm gettigng more and more addicted to it:laugh:
And now- Multiclass Racing! That was something I really liked about good old GTR2- I think ACC is the Real GTR3 :)

Do not understand why there is no possibility to have multiclass racing at a single race/weekend.
Can understand that for the official SP championships though.

These new tracks are all masterpieces.
The problem with the english track is that they are often narrow, difficult to learn and master.

But the english guys really shine at making great tracks !!!!

Really happy to see the AI updates and the AI multiclass. It sounds like they may be just releasing it for the British Pack for now as kind of a soft launch. My guess is they will tweak a bit and then add it to more tracks down the line.

Multiclass AI is really tough. I don't know a sim that's really done it well to this point.

I am checking Aris stream (he is live now).
He showed that you can use multiclass on any of the tracks provided you are racing under the "british GT" rules. So basically you can do multiclass on all tracks.
