Firstly, I want to address something about AMS2; The community has been a little bit annoyed with itself during the past week or so with discussion about this sim and honestly, it’s ridiculous. AMS 2, like every other sim out there, isn’t perfect… Some cars feel superb to me, but some don’t. I don’t know whether it’s an engine thing, a developer thing, a lack of sufficient data from the manufacturer, but not all the cars feel as good as the best feeling cars within the same software. You know what though? This is the same with a lot of sims! A certain engineer might be better at one type of car than the other or the engine itself might have been developed around a particular kind of test vehicle. Whatever the cause, there is some inconsistency in what I consider the accuracy of the cars in AMS2 – and other sims – but that is part of finding the best sim for yourself. You shouldn’t care enough about what YouTuber A says, YouTuber B says, or what I say, to get annoyed by their opinion. It’s like a portion of the community is literally trying NOT to have fun or prevent others from saying why they’re not. If you want to hear my (or anyone elses) opinion, I gave it, but I have no expectation for you to follow it or agree with it. I’m ok with that. Are you?

Anyway… Reiza today deployed a patch and fix for their Automobilista 2 racing simulation fixing some recent and long-standing bugs that could the game to crash under some circumstances. If you still have issues after this patch, here is a checklist Reiza provided below:

1- Verify the integrity of game files via Steam to ensure your installation doesn´t have any faulty or corrupted files

2- While you should not need to regularly delete your DocumentsAutomobilista 2 folder to start a fresh profile every month, some users have reported that starting fresh helped them solve a few issues, specially handling / controller related ones

3- If you experience freezes, CTDs or stutters, double check the applications you have running in the background via Task Manager, close the ones that aren´t essential to see if they might be interfering with the game functionality

4- If you experience crashes running with shadows on Ultra since V1.2 release, try switching it down to High – High is the equivalent of pre V1.2 Ultra, with the latest update making Ultra a bit more demanding on certain GPUs.

5- If you own a G923 and are experiencing issues with game freezing on startup, this topic features some good recommendations

Seasonal foliage was added to Imola. Screenshots of that:
