      Client version = 0.9.0.911
      Client BuildID = 4480845
      Dedicated server version = 56.0.1058
      Dedicated server BuildID = 4480917

      • GTR4 car class - Added Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport
      • GTR3 car class - Added Porsche 911 GT3 R (2019)

      • 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.

        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

    Download size = 25 KB
    Client version = 0.9.0.912
    Client BuildID = 4491406

    • Fixed a case where some steering wheels would not have any Force FeedBack due to their lack of support for square or sawtooth wave signals used since our last update for flatspots and curbstones.
    • Tweaked the default Force FeedBack settings for Direct Drive wheels by reducing damping, increasing rack percentage and scaling the maximum output.
    • When using a controller that has no wheel rotation (such as a gamepad), the Wheel Angle setting in car setup is now properly static instead of appearing to be changeable and then resetting itself.
    • Fixed a case where tyre pressure changes would sometimes not apply.

    • Sounds - Decreased volume of brake lock sounds
    • Porsche 911 GT3 R (2019) - Added more low frequencies to the cockpit sound

The Red Bull brand guidelines now enforce the brand to only be used as replica's of existing cars and liveries, never on fantasy cars. As some of the liveries were sold, we will be looking into refunding the 29 vRP's to your in-game wallets in the coming days.

    The liveries affected are:
    - Formula Raceroom 2 #1
    - Formula Raceroom 2 #2
    - Formula Raceroom 3 #2
    - Formula RaceRoom Junior #18
    - Pagani Zonda R #73
    - Porsche 911 GT3 Cup #11
    - RaceRoom Canhard R51 #15

    • Fixed a bug where pitstop sounds wouldn't work in replays.
    • Fixed an issue where the ideal raceline would feature oddly positioned brake warnings.
    • Fixed an issue where watching an instant replay that featured a pitstop would result in receiving fresh tyres a second time after coming back to gameplay.

    • Tweak to AI's understanding of gravity and forces to improve their behavior on slopes and banked corners.
    • Further tweaks hoping to catch some remaining timing discrepancies when spectating MP races
    • Backed out an older fix for driver names being offset above opponent cars when playing with a low FOV as it had introduced an arguably more annoying intense vibration of the driver names when close to player. Let’s live with an offset for now while we wait for a better fix.

    Content updates:
    • All cars - Adjustments to behavior of the tyres once they've been covered in dirt, grass, gravel. As a consequence of those changes, the sounds for pebbles hitting the car are going to feel a bit fainter.
    • All cars - Modifications to upshifts and downshifts engine revs. Gearshifts are now more brutal™. Older cars from 70’s / 80’s / 90’s also received specific upshift backfires.
    • All cars - New transmission whine recordings for most cars, especially modern GT, prototypes and touring cars. The transmission volume ramp is also altered, it’s now louder while coasting and the pitch is in exact sync with the drivetrain.
    • All cars - New skid and locked brake tyre sounds that provide a more realistic sound during long slides. Also decreased tyre volumes for all modern GT cars.
    • All cars - Updates to behaviour of both the rev and pit limiters.
    • All cars - Modifications to forces involved in car to car collisions, to get rid of some collisions sometimes feeling like the other car is a solid brick.

    • CUPRA TCR - Fixed baseline setup that had an asymmetrical damper setting
    • DTM 14/15/16 - Fixed excessive suspension damage over curbs. Improved curb and bump behaviour with updated high speed dampers.

    • Porsche 911 GT3 Cup (Sprint) - Updated tyre model and suspension. Further tweaks and improvements to physics. (this version of the GT3 Cup is not yet in store but used in Porsche Carrera Cup Scandinavia esports)
    • Porsche Clubsport Trophy by Manthey Racing - Updated tyre model and baseline setup
    • Silhouette Series - Now have factory ABS and preheated tyres. Fixed Canhard R52 that was showing some Push to Pass HUD elements.
    • Volkswagen ID.R - Updated physics according to the Nuerburgring lap record sessions telemetry. Equipped the car with DRS. Shortened the water pump startup sequence and made it sound more obvious that something is happening during car boot up sequence.
    • WTCC 2014/2016 - Fixed excessive suspension damage over curbs
    • WTCR 2018/2019 - Fixed excessive suspension damage over curbs, AI improvements
    • Bathurst - Tweaks to AI’s understanding of what’s a good cornering speed
    • Imola - Tweaks to AI’s understanding of what’s a good cornering speed
    • Ningbo - Improvements to framerate. The starting grid for the short layout is now the same as for the other layouts. Improved AI behaviour.
    • Nuerburgring - Improved AI behaviour at turn 1 of VLN / 24H.
    • Road America - Extended track limits a bit on the outside of the Canada Corner so you no longer get a cut with two wheels inside the white line.
    • Salzburgring - Tweaks to AI’s understanding of what’s a good cornering speed
    • Spa-Francorchamps - Tweaks to AI’s understanding of what’s a good cornering speed (Blanchimont)

    Known issue
    • Ningbo main layout has a wrong cut detection in the left turn just before pitlane entry. The only way to record a laptime there right now is by keeping left after the apex. Other Ningbo layouts are not affected. We’re still investigating what’s up with this and will fix as soon™ as possible.
