rFactor 2 – Build 156 Released
image Space Incorporated have now released Build 156 for their current PC based title rFactor 2, successor to the extremely popular title rFactor.
The new update brings various bug fixes and updates to the title along with a new Mod Manager. The full change log is also available below along with a link to download the latest build.
This tool is meant for modders to get a better idea of what they have on their system and be able to manage it. One of the planned features (not yet in) is to have packages (mods, components) automatically installed when the sim starts up and sees something new.
Fixed shaders bug with vertex color adjustments
Fixed headlight bug where headligths would lag one frame behind
Fixed broken tire temp indicator on HUD MFD
Attempt to fix occasional smoke problem with transparent trainer
Fixed some issues that happen when upgrades make a change in the number of tire compounds
Added “hard” anti-stall.
Made anti-stall a feature that can be permanently enabled rather than depending on anti-clutch driving aid (HDV: “”AntiStallLogic” =1″, default is 0)
Fixed HDV variable GraphicalOffset so that x&z values don’t affect normal driving physics (y value never did; note they all affect collision, though)
“RearFlapZoneSessions” and “RearFlapWetThreshold” should also be allowed in the RFM (in addition to the GDB); “RearFlapZone” remains the same, GDB-only
Converted TBC parameter “WetWeather” from boolean to floating point value so AIs could judge the level of wetness handled. Exactly zero should still be used for dry weather tires, for the sake of rules.
Added new optional algorithms for engine brake map.
UI / HUD:
Fixed bug on main menu vehicle button if there are no cars installed
In controls menu, highlight controls currently being activated (helps me remember what button is what on my wheel)
Added new playerfile variable “OPT_UI_KeyNav” that toggles keyboard navigation of options.
Removed useless HUD parameters
Fixed the situation where replays of races would crash right after track load
MODDING / PUBLIC DEV
Updated ModMgr UI
Prevent AI cars from fueling if race parameters disallow it.
Fixed a bug where 2 clients that have the same custom skin names would sometimes see the other skin on their local car.
