iRacing have deployed a patch for their online service and simulation this morning, restoring IndyCar branding in a few areas that could not be done otherwise, updating the Daytona roadcourse in preparation for their big event, and several tweaks to the damage model.

Note that next week the members Web site will be unable to join any events. The UI will be the only way to use the simulator.

Build notes:

iRACING:

————————————————————–

Updater

A handful of Rookie cars and tracks are now part of the “Required” downloads. This is to ensure a customer always has both a track and vehicle available on their machine for troubleshooting purposes, as well as in preparation for a New User Onboarding experience coming soon! These items include:

– – Formula Vee

– – Street Stock

– – Lime Rock Park

– – USA International Speedway

LEGACY MEMBERSITE:

————————————————————–

Simulator Connectivity

Next week, on Tuesday, January 16th at 0800EST, all functionality that directly launches the iRacing Simulator application in any way will be removed from the members.iracing.com site. All pages that include the ability to change your Registration status or Join the Simulator in any format will be removed from the members.iracing.com site.

This change does not affect the iRacing application, the interface (UI) which you launch separately. This change only relates to the iRacing Legacy Membersite website, familiar to most of our very long-time customers. All functions and actions that utilize Simulator connectivity remain fully featured and available in iRacing, the standalone application!

SIMULATION:

————————————————————–

Updater

Fixed an issue that could occur where running a second update cycle immediately after a first is finished could fail to launch the updater, because the first updater may have still been silently running dependency checks.

Graphics

Fixed an issue where setting the Graphics Class to “4” would then automatically set itself to “Custom”. 4 is actually not that special.

(Road Course) – A variety of turn exit gain-time checkpoints have been loosened slightly.
