iRacing 2016 Season 4 Patch 2 Notes

Jack Davidson posted the iRacing 2016 Season 4 Patch 2 notes over on the iRacing website. This bringing a raft of fine tuning and tweaks to the latest build.

CHANGE LOG:

Simulator

– Power saving and screen savers are now turned off when the Sim launches.

Connection

– Fixed a bug that would cause your Options/Graphics/Max cars selection to be sent only to the first server to which you connect while remaining in the simulation. If you registered for a Race session far enough ahead of time, and joined the pre-race Open Practice, the Open Practice server would have been told of your selection. But when you clicked on the [Race!] button inside the simulation to transition to the Race session, the Race server would not be told of your selection, and would instead use the default, maximum value.

Rendering

– Windshield reflections have been disabled at night tracks.

– Fixed an issue where sometimes partially invisible cars would be present with large fields at Le Mans.

– All floating point exceptions (reporting in .logs and/or crashing out) in the FG and BG have been disabled if the SIM is running on Wine (Mac/Linux).

Options

– Fixed a misspelling in the help text for the Far Terrain setting on the Options screen.

Animation

– Fixed an issue where the lollipop guy would sometimes appear in a T-pose.

CARS

Aston Martin DBR9 GT1

– Season setups have been updated.

– Tire warmers are now used for this car. Temperature is set to what we would see with blankets or an oven, as used on GT3 cars.

Audi Quattro GTO

– Season setups have been updated.

– Minor bug fix to selection of number of clutch plates for the rear diff. The change increment was two plates, but the range of plates was 1 plate to 8 plates, resulting in strange selection increments depending on where you started. The range has been changed to be from 2 plates to 8 plates.

– Fixed a car number position issue with the official Audi 90 GTO paint scheme pattern.

– Fixed the misspelling of FELUERLOSCH-ANLAGE on the dashboard.

– Season setups have been updated.

– Tire warmers are now used for this car. Temperature is set to what we would see with blankets or an oven, as used on GT3 cars.
