    RaceRoom has been updated!
    Porsche DLC#3, BMW M4 GT4, and plenty more!
    Update details:

    Download size = 4.5 GB
    Client version = 0.9.0.911
    Client BuildID = 4480845
    Dedicated server version = 56.0.1058
    Dedicated server BuildID = 4480917

    New content:

    • GTR4 car class - Added BMW M4 GT4
    • GTR4 car class - Added Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport
    • GTR3 car class - Added Porsche 911 GT3 R (2019)
    • Group 4 car class - Added BMW M1 Group 4
    • Added a new car class - Porsche Motorsport GT2 Supersportscar, with the Porsche GT2 RS Clubsport
    • Tracks - Added Ningbo International Speedpark with 5 layouts
    • Tracks - Added new layout: Nürburgring Grand Prix Fast Chicane, free for all owners of the track.


    Features:

    • Added a first iteration of daylight progression, from morning to evening. A multiplier is available to set progression from x0 (static sun), up to x25.
    • Sun position is now astronomically accurate for each of our tracks as per a typical summer solstice day.
    • Dedicated server - Added possibility to set a "Message of the Day" that all players will be presented with upon joining. The message can be dismissed by pressing the brake, or leaving the pitlane. The message can be formatted using very basic html tags.
    • Damage overhaul - The old settings separating Visual and Mechanical damage have been merged into just one Damage setting which can have the following values:
      - Off (cars will not take any damage)
      - Limited (this is equivalent to having both mechanical and visual damage enabled before today's update)
      - Full (Suspension can get damaged, and tyres can have flat spots after lock-ups)
    • Damage model - New deformations and systems for detachables parts, cracks in windshields, etc.
    • Damage model - Tyres can now get punctured from collisions or from driving off track, and the probabilities of getting a puncture increase with the wear.
    • Car Setup Menu - One of our goals is to modernize the user interface and the first menu that we decided to tackle is the car setup. It is reflecting the future look and feel of the RaceRoom interface as we head into 2020.
      It is divided in three areas, the left will display some telemetry data from your last laps, the center has all the possible changes sorted into tabs, and the right side is dedicated to display helper texts and the steering settings.
    • Force Feedback - Added Pneumatic Trail to the physics engine, which results in self-centering forces on corner exits.
    • Force Feedback - Added Stationary Friction effects
    • Global AI behavioral improvements, with car specific tweaks using a self-learning algorithm.
    • Sounds - Improvements to tyre sounds (skid and scrub).
    • Added an option to display opponents of other classes in the HUD position bar
    • Added an option to force the HUD track map to remain static and not rotate with the player's car orientation
    • Added an option to show or hide the chat messages in Multiplayer
    • Added extra bindigs for Shift Up and Shift Down, allowing to mix paddles and a sequential shifter

    Does that mean that Brands Hatch GP is finally coming?

    What happened to VW IDR? And also Lada TCR? Will they be added to the store in the future?

    Can't wait to use the set up feature, for a guy that struggles with setups this type of direction is exactly what I was hoping for. Well done S3!
