iRacing: Season 3 Patch 4 changes

iRacing’s latest patch is here, building on changes brought to Season 3. The major changes address bugs with cars and the damage model, while also making some small tweaks to the Beta UI.

Changelog:

iRacing UI:

  • Fixed an issue where users were getting Registered to the wrong Split when Spectating a multi-car event.

Simulation:

Race Control

  • Fixed an issue where a time-limited Race finish could sometimes not triggering at all.

AI Racing

  • AI Drivers have received additional training with the following vehicles:
    – – BMW M4 GT4
    – – Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport MR
  • AI Drivers have received additional training at the following tracks:
    – – Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps – Grand Prix Pits

New Damage Model

  • Adjustments have been made to improve the New Damage Model on opponent cars so that it more quickly matches the actual state recorded by the server.
    – – Most damage states received from the server are now applied to opponent cars immediately.
    – – The exception to this are damage states that would reattach wheels or car parts.
    – – – In these cases, the damage state change can be delayed. The reattachment of wheels or car parts will be delayed if the force involved in breaking the part was above a threshold. There is a low and a high threshold with separate delay times. More severe impacts will cause a longer delay, minor impacts will have no delay.
  • Fixed an issue where some car-on-car contacts were not creating incidents correctly.
  • Fixed an issue where Replays featuring cars that had the New Damage Model at the time and have since been reverted were not loading correctly.
    – – Now, whenever loading a Replay, the Simulator will always use the New Damage Model car if that car had ever used it before.
  • The allowable hyper-extended distance for the front wheels on all stockcars has been reduced to prevent wheels popping through the hood.
  • The allowable hyper-extended distance for the wheels on all open-wheeled cars has been reduced to prevent some odd flipping behavior.
  • The hyper-extended suspension will now be reset when a vehicle with this issue enters a pit stall.
    – – This reset, and possible car hop, should only trigger when there is a hyperextended wheel.
