This update from iRacing fixes a number of general issues with the latest release and updates some of the setups. Read the changelog below:

iRACING UI:

General

– The UI should no longer pop-up over a running Sim session with a login prompt.

Paint Shop

– The UI now better automatically tests if a car paint file has been updated, especially in cases where they were not previously (for example when using the “Export” operation from Adobe Photoshop or other image-editing software).

SIMULATION:

Race Control

– Fixed an issue where if a Caution period begins while the leader is in pit lane and has passed the finish line, but everyone else on track is not yet on the same lap, then all drivers on track would get a wave-by to pass the leader.

Dirt Racing

– The dirt tire parameters for a variety of stockcar vehicles have been dramatically updated for more realistic performance, based on feedback from real-world drivers.

– – The following vehicles have these new tires:

– – – ARCA Menards Chevrolet Impala

– – – NASCAR Cup Series Chevrolet Camaro ZL1

– – – NASCAR Cup Series Ford Mustang

– – – NASCAR Cup Series Toyota Camry

– – – NASCAR Gander Outdoors Chevrolet Silverado

– – – NASCAR Gander Outdoors Ford F150

– – – NASCAR Gander Outdoors Toyota Tundra

– – – NASCAR Xfinity Chevrolet Camaro

– – – NASCAR Xfinity Ford Mustang

– – – NASCAR Xfinity Toyota Supra

– – – [Legacy] NASCAR Cup Chevrolet Impala COT – 2009

– – – [Legacy] NASCAR Cup Chevrolet SS – 2013

– – – [Legacy] NASCAR Cup Ford Fusion – 2016

– – – [Legacy] NASCAR Nationwide Chevrolet Impala – 2012

– – – [Legacy] NASCAR Truck Chevrolet Silverado – 2008

– – – [Legacy] NASCAR Xfinity Chevrolet Camaro – 2014

– – – [Legacy] NASCAR Xfinity Ford Mustang – 2016

– – – [Legacy] NASCAR Xfinity Toyota Camry – 2015

New Damage Model

– Fixed the apparent root of the prevalent crash-to-desktop issues plaguing vehicles utilizing the New Damage Model.

– – This issue appears to have been caused by a corruption of the data when opponent wheels were being moderately to severely damaged, or when they were being reattached to a vehicle.

– We are confident in the above fix. However, as a result of this fix, some sweeping updates have been made to our underlying tire attachment system. Because of this, we are taking the extra precaution of keeping the New Damage Model disabled on the following vehicles until we have had some proper time to re-balance their damage states. You can expect the New Damage Model to be re-enabled on these vehicles soon:

– – ARCA Menards Chevrolet Impala

– – NASCAR Chevrolet Monte Carlo – 1987

– – NASCAR Ford Thunderbird – 1987

– – Street Stock

Animation

– Some opponent drivers’ heads appeared to be missing. They have been found and successfully re-attached by our expert surgeons. There are only minor complaints of neck pain. Drivers using the following cars were effected:

– – Dallara F3

– – Dallara iR-01

– – Dallara IR18

– – [Legacy] Dallara DW12

– – [Legacy] Indycar Dallara – 2009

CARS:

Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO

– The dashboard page may now be selected during Fixed Setup events.

NASCAR Cup Series Chevrolet Camaro ZL1
