iRacing today deployed their fourth patch for the current Season 2 update. You can check out the release notes below:

iRACING UI: (5.13.01-2021-s2)

General

– The clock in the UI banner has been made more visible when Dark Mode is active.

Race Series

– The Event start dates have been added to the information displayed in the Season Schedule.

– – This shows the start date for all weeks, regardless if they are completed or in progress.

– The minimum number of participants required in order for a Ranked Session to go Official has been added to the Series Info panel.

– – Remember, your Safety Rating is always effected by your performance in Ranked Sessions; and your iRating is only effected if the event has enough participants to go Official!

– Fixed an issue where the displayed time of day word description (except Afternoon) did not match the actual time value for the Session info.

– Fixed an issue where the Time of Day info bubble was not displayed correctly on a Series Schedule.

Hosted Racing

– When creating a Hosted Session from an event on a Race Season Schedule, the correct time of day will now be carried over into the Hosted Session creation window.

– Fixed an issue where setting a weight penalty for a given car was being automatically rounded to the nearest whole kilogram, regardless of units in use and actual value.

– Fixed an issue where creating a Hosted Session from a Series Schedule was not carrying over the correct Time of Day settings.

Test Drive

– When creating a Test Drive from a Series event, the correct time of day will now be carried over into the Test Drive creation window.

Leagues

– When creating a League Team Race, the Grid Builder button is now correctly unavailable.

Paint Shop

– Fixed an issue where an empty column could appear when selecting to change cars.

SIMULATION:

Peripherals

– A new Thrustmaster “OneWheel” API has been integrated.

– – This API should resolve various force feedback issues. This update is automatic, no manual processes are required by users.

– TrueForce support for Logitech wheels has been re-enabled.

– – Users will need to manually force GHUB to upgrade to version 2021.3.5164 if you are already on version 2021.2.7359. See the following forum post for a guide on how to get Logitech TrueForce back up and running safely: https://members.iracing.com/jforum/posts/list/3801302.page

CARS:

ARCA Menards Chevrolet Impala

– The New Damage Model has been re-enabled for this vehicle on this environment!

– For the New Damage Model, several adjustments have been made, including:

– – Wheel strengths have been adjusted so they break or hinge less.

– – Spring damper limits have been adjusted so they may occasionally collapse with appropriate damage.

– – The break thresholds for many body mount points have been reduced.

Global Mazda MX-5 Cup

– Preventative measures have been taken to halt rampant license plate thievery for this vehicle within the 3D Model Viewer.

Mercedes-AMG GT3

– Fixed an issue where the iRacing UI model for this vehicle could appear without mirrors.

NASCAR Cup Series Chevrolet Camaro ZL1

– Gearing has been adjusted slightly while running at Darlington Raceway to account for reduced aerodynamic drag.

NASCAR Cup Series Ford Mustang

– Gearing has been adjusted slightly while running at Darlington Raceway to account for reduced aerodynamic drag.

NASCAR Cup Series Toyota Camry

– Gearing has been adjusted slightly while running at Darlington Raceway to account for reduced aerodynamic drag.
