Automobilista 2 Updated to Version 1.3.6.1

Automobilista 2 May Update 01.jpg
An update for Automobilista 2 has been released to Steam and brings significant physics improvements to many of its most popular cars.

AMS2 fans will find a number of improvements waiting for them the next time they load Steam. The sim has moved to version 1.3.6.1, which updates much of the popular content in the title to the improved physics we saw for select vehicles in the previous major update.

Last month the newer Stock Cars and Formula Ultimate vehicles received tire model physics tweaks that most players saw as an impressive step forward in the handling and feel of the cars in game, and these tweaks have now been applied to more vehicles.

Additionally, select vehicles received significant improvements outside of the tire model changes. The Cadillac DPi, Super V8, Formula Ultimate, Puma GTB and Porsche Cup were each given multiple fixes and improvements in this update.

This update follows Reiza's monthly update schedule, and in addition to the vehicle improvements it also brought a large number of fixes to the user interface, AI and tracks. The changelog for the version 1.3.5.2 to version 1.3.6.0 update and subsequent 1.3.6.1 update are listed on the next page.

Thanks Reiza for another great update ! Yes the say it before , great listening to the users. Great car feeling:thumbsup: ...looking forward to another great cars and tracks . Was today @ Wec race in spa-Francorchamsps.....;)a lot work Reiza to update this track with new lines a Raddilion an the new grand stand and demolished grandstand and building opposite the old pits:O_o:
 
Thanks for the heads up, Mike. There's a discussion on Steelcast27's channel with Renato @ Reiza talking about their approach and what the new changes bring. Pretty interesting stuff.
 
Like I said before 2020's going to be Reiza's era.
i think the 2020s are in general the era of racing sims because of that corona thingy.
all sims took off. iRacing, acc, rf2, ams2 and we have incoming ac2 while ac is still going strong thanks to CM and all the mods.
i dont think there is just one game in particular which stands above all.
and for the more casual approach i do hope that the new Forza Motorsport will come again closer to FM4 as the entries 5-7 were pretty meh in my book.

Amazing update, nothing in sim racing comes close to AMS2 atm, especially when you drive in VR with motion and DD. Thank you once again Reiza! I hope that the next update solves the multiplayer stability issues/bugs and gives more attention to multiplayer in general.

Nothing on the bug that makes the AI pit for fuel more than needed.
A bit underwhelming.
I believe this is due to the AI not having had the chance to calibrate the fuel it needs. While the default behaviour shouldn't be pitting for more fuel than needed, I think it can be circumvented by having a practice and/or quali session beforehand.
 
Thinking of picking this up during the upcoming steam summer sale.... I want to support the developers and add this to my collection.

But have been seeing so many conflicting reviews in regards to fbb/physics/handling. Some reviewers said it's not sorted completely but i think i'll trust our own members here rather than youtube.

at this point in time may 2022, has ams2 left behind the shadow of PC2 and where does ams2 stand in regards to fbb/physics/handling when compared to rf2, ac and acc...?!? I'm only talking about fbb/physics and handling.( Ignore graphics, online, etc)

Do we still need to download some custom files etc like that or is ams2 now awesome and matches the big 3 on its own self...?

Thanks.

Seriously you're going to have make the investment and answer these questions for yourself.

The discussion on AMS2 here tends to go around in endless circles and if you compare it with something else either positively or negatively someone will want to debate you on why you are wrong.

I think it's a great sim, not perfect but well worth the money.
