iRacing | 2021 Season 2 Patch 3 released

"Wir haben einige große Fortschritte in unseren Algorithmen und Prozessen für das neue Schadensmodell gemacht. Dies sind systemweite Änderungen, die sich auf alle Fahrzeuge auswirken, bei denen das Neue Schadensmodell aktiviert ist. Nach unseren letzten Tests sind wir mit vielen dieser Ergebnisse sehr zufrieden und geben diese Updates an Sie weiter. Allerdings bleibt noch mehr Arbeit für einige Fahrzeuge, die mit diesen Änderungen neu ausbalanciert werden müssen", heißt es im offiziellen iRacing-Support-Post.



Einige Fahrzeuge, bei denen das New Damage Model aktiviert ist, haben ebenfalls eine Reihe von Änderungen erfahren, um den Crash-Realismus zu erhöhen. Diese sind der Aston Martin DBR9 GT1, Audi RS 3 LMS, BMW M4 GT4, Chevrolet Corvette C6.R GT1, Dallara F3, Dallara iR-01, Ford GT2/GT3, Formula Renault 2.0, Global Mazda MX-5 Cup, Indy Pro 2000 PM-18, McLaren 570s GT4, Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport MR, Skip Barber Formula 2000 und USF 2000


Zu den Highlights gehören eine Überarbeitung der Steifigkeit der Kettenzäune, um das Reiten an der Wand zu verhindern, aktualisierte Texturen für den Darlington Raceway für die Verwendung von physikalisch basierten Rendering-Shadern und Funken werden bei der Verwendung bestimmter Replay-Kameras nicht mehr gestreckt dargestellt.


Alle drei NASCAR-Cup-Series-Fahrzeuge nutzen nun auch visuell das Low-Downforce-Setup auf dem Darlington Raceway.


Changelog iRacing Season 2 Patch 3


SIMULATION


Physics

- Chain fence stiffness and damping have been reduced to prevent drivers riding up the walls and driving on the fence.


New Damage Model

- Some great advancements in our New Damage Model algorithms and processes have been made. These are system-wide changes that impact all vehicles that have the New Damage Model enabled. With our latest testing we are very happy with many of these results and are sending those updates your way. However, more work remains for some vehicles to be re-balanced with these changes. As such, we are only re-enabling the New Damage Model for the Street Stock car with this Patch 3. The remaining vehicles which will remain on Original Damage Model for the time being include:

- - ARCA Menards Chevrolet Impala

- - NASCAR Chevrolet Monte Carlo - 1987

- - NASCAR Ford Thunderbird - 1987


Visual Effects

- Fixed an issue where sparks could appear to stretch when using some Replay cameras.
