    Reiza Studios have today released a small hotfix update to Automobilista.

    The small hotfix, made available automatically via Steam, adds a number of fixes and improvements to Automobilista following the recent build 1.3.0 release deployed back on the 27th February.

    Noteworthy changes to the game include some further enhancements to the AI files in respect of the new Adelaide street circuit, amendments to engine wear parameters on some cars that caused issues in previous builds and some solid work on global AI enhancements for a number of cars within the game.

    The hotfix update has come today as something of a welcomed surprise from Reiza and will be automatically downloaded next time the user starts their Steam client.

    For those of you who have not yet purchased the Adelaide DLC pack containing three layouts of the classic Australian street track (modern, 1988 and SuperTruck variants), you can purchase the pack for US$ 5.99. For a limited amount of time you may still purchase the Membership upgrade which includes the Season Pass with the old pricing of US$ 29.99 from the forum store, and that will also grant you Reiza 51 access.

    Ran a couple quick races last night at Adelaide with the V8 Supercars & the AI has definitely improved! If Reiza can have the AI pull out & pass the player car & defend position in future updates I might not play anything else!

    Tonight a clubrace and 5 drivers blew their engines.

    I was having issues with the V10 Formula car blowing constantly, it seemed to happen on upshifts mostly, which is not something I'm used to. It was very random feeling.

    Automobilista v1.3.5 is now out!

    • Refactored SweetFX profiles & split them into categories, including new default
    • Fixed Config tool bug that would allow native anti-aliasing setting to remain on even when SweetFX is enabled (user should set AA via graphics card control panel when a SFX preset enabled)
    • Added function to automatically disable mid-race full course yellow in tracks that don´t have a Safety Car (such as historical tracks)
    • Fixed bug that would limit opponents to a single car in championship mode irrespective of the actual setting if "randomize" function was on
    • Added UI tooltip to all screens (WIP, not all options have tips and it´s not localized)

    • Adjusted Min / Mid / Max AI performance range for several tracks
    • Adjusted default engine rev limit in F-V10, F-Reiza, added F-V12 adjustable rev limit range for a safer default setup on these cars to help prevent engine failures
