V1.01 hotfix
    Since release last week Reiza identified a few teething issues which they have been since dutifully pursuing - one always tries to be ahead of these but unfortunately a full release is always a bit of a leap into the unknown as it goes from having a few hundred beta testers to many thousand of users and the vast range of OS, hardware, drivers and third party software combinations that comes with it.
    One issue that Reiza has partially identified is that AMS v1.0 is failing to launch with Windows 7 if Service Pack 1 is not installed - they are still pursuing the reason why this came to be with v1.0, but for now they can confirm that updating Win 7 with SP1 is required.
    The hotfix will pack some further DynHUD improvement...

    The new seasons are about to go green in EEC. We will start with our GT3 Series and the Le Mans Series. We'll start them from mid/end of September so you have plenty of time to get your skins ready!

    This time we'll allow driver swaps, so if you don't want to race alone, or if you want to race with a friend rather than against him/her you both can share a car. And don't worry, the driver swap time will fit a normal pit stop so you won't be at a disadvantage. Note that the driver swap is allowed, but not mandatory, you race with someone if you want.

    The GT3 league will visit the following tracks: Interlagos, Laguna Seca, Catalunya (E), Monza, Paul Ricard (E), Oschersleben, Spa (E) and Melbourne. The tracks with a (E) are the enduran...

The wait is over! After months of work the mod is finally complete and released. 
The car list is.... well... download it here and check it by yourself ;-) 
The mod is a conversion from the one used in Stock Car Extreme, it was updated to use Automobilista shaders and features plus many other updates that made it look beautiful!
There is just a few restrictions to this mod we'd like you to read:

  • It's not allowed to use it for online leagues if you are inside the EEC time zone (we race on Sundays from 20:00 till 22:00 CET). We are doing this because it's common to see plenty of leagues running at the same time with 5~10 drivers each. So instead of doing this let's all race together in EEC. Our leagues are well managed and we plan to allow driver...

A new build of Automobilista is out! Check it out! 


Content:

  • Added Speedland Kart track venue (4 layouts)

Features & Fixes:
  • Enhanced pneumatic trail by adding new PneumaticTrailGripFractPower (PTGFP) function, for much improved self-aligning torque (should make tire forces more perceivable through FFB)
