    Additional to the new update Reiza have also included the some brand new content to the game, namely the ARC Camaro as a free vehicle and the second of their 'Classic Tracks' DLC in the form of the great Australian street circuit Adelaide, in both it's 1988, modern and SuperTruck layouts.

    • Adjusted AI brake power / grip usage for all cars
    • Removed incorrectly enabled launch control from engines in several series
    • Fixed overdone dynamic tire wear texture
    • Supertruck: Raised camber and suspension damping for default setup; Adjusted tire textures
    • Boxer Cup: Completely revised physics with addition of helper springs
    • SuperV8: fixed uv mapping issue on carbody
    • F-Trainer: Minor tire model adjustments
    • F-Vintage: Minor tire model adjustments; Adjusted tire LOD settings
    • F-Retro: Minor tire model adjustments; Fixed black polys on one of the LODs of the Copersucar model
    • F-Classic: Minor tire model adjustments; Fixed textures error on low player and opponent settings
    • F-V12: Minor tire model adjustments; Softened front suspension range & default settings
    • F-V10: Minor tire model adjustments; Fixed black polys on one of the LODs; Fine tuned external sound samples overlap
    • Superkart: Minor tire model adjustments; Reduced aero yaw sensitivity
    • SuperV8: Minor tire model adjustments; reduced default roll bar setting a click on both ends
    • Karts: Further AI performance tuning

    * The mid-race full course yellow is a rule from F-Truck - it triggers a 2-lap safety car period after the leader completes half race distance (provided the total distance is equal or more than 10 laps / 15 minutes).

    ** The new engine reliability functions will demand extra care during gear shifts, specially for older engines. Upshifting without lifting in cars without powershift and bouncing off the rev limiter will accelerate engine wear and may eventually lead to failures if practiced over a longer race distance; a very aggressive downshift may lead to an instant blow-up.

    If you have an online race tonight, you may stick to or revert to the previous v1.2.1 by selecting that branch from the Steam Beta tab. Further instructions as to how to do that here.

    If you have a bug to report please use the new bug report thread (make sure to check the opening post first).

    If you experience any issues running the game following the update, it´s worth running a Steam Integrity Check to make sure all files have been added / updated correctly.

    For further difficulties related to installing, running or setting up the game, please refer to USER MANUAL present as a launch option from Steam If you need further assistance please post it in V1.0 troubleshooting topic or email (please allow for up to 1 business day for a reply).

    Automobilista is a PC exclusive racing simulation from Reiza Studios. DLC can be purchased for the game at an additional cost.

    Amazing work! Thanks!

    I have a question, "Fuel Usage" is now displayed as "Ethanol Usage", for every series (even trucks lol). Just for curiosity, why did you implement this label change?

    Fanatec V2 base and SQ V1.5 shifter, HE Pro pedals, DSD button box and hopefully some time the HE SQ shifter. It does work, but then all buttons on my wheel are disabled and the cockpit view is pointed upwards to the right. No way I can change it. All others cams work normal. If I unplug the HE shifter, my assigned controls are all messed up. I asked on the Reiza forum, but no answer there, so I mailed Niels and I hope he is going to be able to help... Shifter works fine in all other sims though...
    I tried unplugging the Fanatec shifter, using JoyToKey, all without result. :(

    The two versions of Adelaide are good and the rest is nice. Now if only I can remember not to go over that second curb in the '88 version...

    What Reiza have been able to achieve with the old ISImotor engine is nothing short of miraculous. If gMotor in particular was a horse it would have been dragged out the back and shot years ago. Adelaide represents all that's good about Reiza's approach given the limitations that they have to overcome - it looks and feels fantastic, and the new reverb really helps with the sense of immersion.

    Renato has stated that a bunch of widely acknowledged and much needed AI improvements are going to make it into the next update. If they can just fix the inhuman AI stability, get them to respect blue flags, and stop them racing you once a race is over (all things handled with aplomb by rF2 so we know it's possible), then AMS will absolutely be my sim of choice.

    This little Camaro must be the best Touring Car, or whatever category it may fit, I ever drove in a Sim, seriously.
    Totally in love.
