iRacing | 2022 Season 4 Patch 2 released

Reading Time: 12 minutes

Ein Problem mit der automatischen Rennkontrolle, das beim Playoff-Rennen der eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series auf dem Bristol Motor Speedway auftrat, hält sich auch im zweiten Patch der Saison 2022 Saison 4 noch in der iRacing-Sphäre.


Die Störung beeinträchtigte die Playoffs so stark, dass die Rennleitung eine zusätzliche Woche zu den drei Rennen der Round of 10 einfügte, was letztlich den Ausschlag dafür gab, dass Graham A. Bowlin dieses Jahr um den Titel fährt und nicht Michael Conti.


Diese Panne hat offenbar zu einer gründlicheren Überprüfung des Bristol Motor Speedway im Allgemeinen geführt, und heute (13. Oktober 2022) wurde ein weiteres Problem mit dem Halbmeilen-Oval behoben, ein Problem, das in der Vergangenheit wahrscheinlich vielen passiert ist, ohne dass sie wussten, warum es passierte.


Speziell im Zusammenhang mit Position 24 in Bristol bei Pace Laps wurde manchmal fälschlicherweise eine Strafe für das Einfahren in eine geschlossene Box verhängt. Bei Rennen ohne menschlichen Rennleiter konnte dies für jeden, der davon betroffen war, eine kostspielige Panne sein. Jetzt sollte Bristol hoffentlich ein weniger fehlerhaftes Schlachtfeld sein.


Das Donnerstag-Update enthielt eine Reihe weiterer Korrekturen. Im Allgemeinen wurden kurze Strecken mit besseren Neustartverfahren aktualisiert. Eine Handvoll Straßenrennwagen, darunter Tourenwagen und der Porsche Mission R, erhielten einige Updates, die die Einstellbarkeit der Bremsvorspannung beinhalten. Schließlich wurden neben Bristol noch eine Handvoll weiterer Strecken wie Rudskogen und Zandvoort mit dem Patch verbessert.



Changelog iRacing 2022 Season 4 Patch 2


SIMULATION

--------------------------------------------------------------

Race Control

At small tracks with very slow pace speeds the calculated green flag zone has been extended further back from the Start/Finish Line, leaving more time for race systems to calculate correctly.

- - This reduces the likelihood of triggering issues that could arise when the calculated green flag zone was only immediately adjacent to the Start/Finish Line, meaning that sometimes on restarts the leader could have crossed the S/F Line prior to the green flag, which could cause problems with scoring of laps, especially with the “Do Not Count Caution Laps” option enabled.



AI Racing

Fixed an issue with AI aggression where sudden and large steering inputs could occur when two or more AI Drivers were side-by-side on Road Courses.

Fixed an error with some AI Drivers ability to estimate fuel consumption.


Audio

For the Low Frequency Effects system, fixed an issue that could cause the full engine explosion LFE effect to trigger when any car engine exploded, not just the player.


Pits

Fixed an issue where the auto pit speed limiter was not disabling correctly during parade laps.

The auto pit speed limiter is now considered active during Test Sessions.


Camera

A new Mark Mode has been enabled that turns the camera into a measurement device.

- - Position the camera at the start of your measurement, hit Mark, and move to the end of your measurement and read out the X/Y/Z or direct distance (D) the camera moved.


Sporting Code

Several updates have been completed to the Official iRacing Sporting Code, including:

- - Information about TTRating has been added.

- - Language has been added informing users that they need to be prepared to submit evidence with every protest.

- - Adjusted information location and details about “Tanking” behavior for clarity.
