Automobilista - September Development Update

Greetings folks :) Here´s our customary review of the work done in Automobilista development over the past month. We´ve been hard at it, both in the development of v1.1 update as well as production of the Brit Pack, both of which are expected for release at some point next week.

V1.1 Development

The major new feature for AMS v1.1 is the inclusion of Radio Spotter as developed by @gongo . This had been a very popular addition to the sim and now with native integration Dan has been able to take it a step further with more info and better accuracy from your race engineer.

Dan has also been doing some work to improve integration with the new Logitech drivers - v1.1 should hopefully see some proper support for their latest G29 / G920 wheels.

On the graphics front, @Alex Sawczuk and @Sandro Kholodkevich have done some great work on new car shaders and materials. Below is a shot of the flashy Ultima GTR featuring these latest developments:

We also introduced a new AO mapping technique with seamless textures, which result in both optimized use of textures as well as improved cockpit details. The improvements are very noticeable on the new cars as you can see in this tasty cockpit from the Ultima GTR Race version:

Further good news is that performance not only has not been affected by these updates, but rather the continuing optimization work has led to some more previously troublesome cars to be now running smoother than ever in pretty much any respectable system (so long as you keep to the designated car count limit).

A not so positive note is that Steam Achievements unfortunately will not quite make it in yet in v1.1; we´re not far away from finalising these but unfortunately developing the system & protection for the new content has kept @Luis Miguel busy for longer than we anticipated after v1.0 release.

Brit Pack

The core focus this past month has of course been finalizing the contents of the Brit Pack, our first DLC pack for Automobilista.

This is actually a significant release for us and for those who have been with us for a while now as the Brit Pack will be the first time we´ll be charging long-time users for a new release since Game Stock Car 2013 came out back in September 2013! Fortunately we´re confident the Brit Pack (along with everything else that´s still to come for AMS) will justify that extra investment as the new content are some of the best stuff we have ever produced.

On the track front, as is known we´ll be adding 3 british classics with Brands Hatch, Cadwell Park and Oulton Park - these tracks were hand-picked due to their classic style and heritage and preserved natural flow which are so nicely suited for the rich british club racing scene we´re looking to sample in this pack. All tracks are officially licensed and extensively researched in loco (with the aid of laser scan data in the case of Brands and Oulton Park). They are also excellent venues to stretch the legs of other default cars, exception perhaps taking the more powerful cars around Cadwell unless you´re really looking for a test of reflexes and precision :D

The cars were produced in close collaboration with the manufacturers and we´ve also had input from several of their respective real world drivers during development - this is a claim we hear all the time of course to the point it has become a tired sim racing cliche, the proof as always will be in the pudding and we´re very satisfied with how these new cars have turned out :)

Beyond the data and the resulting accuracy of the models, fundamentally it all rides on the nature of what´s being simulated, and here is where we feel the Brit Pack will really shine - just glancing through some Youtube videos of these cars being driven on these tracks in anger should be enough to see the fun factor involved is off the charts :) These are all very different animals and tracks compared to the default content of AMS, and as such they add a whole new dimension to the sim. I´ll go out on a limb and say there will be at least one combo from this pack that will make towards the top of your list of favorite simracing experiences :)

Here are some fresh previes of the new content:

Ultima GTR (road & race version)

F-Trainer (Novice & Advanced versions)

MCR Sports 2000

Here you can see Niels taking the MCR out for a spin:

The Caterhams

To begin with, we´ll be offering the 270R (with a race variant for Academy series), the 360R (with Superlight Series), along with the mental road version of the 620R, as per the preview below:

There will be more variants though along with some optionals which we aim to add along with a new upgrades interface - unfortunately this feature won´t make it in time for v1.1 but the upgrades menu along with more optionals are sure additions for v1.2 within a month or so from now. In any case we´ll supply options for both left and right side driving seats for these Caterhams (also for the Ultimas).

All new tracks and series with the exception of the Caterhams are now available in fairly advanced state in AMS Beta which is now up to v1.0.8 so if you got the DLC Season Pass - if you haven´t grab it now and get on racing!

Future AMS DLCs

Of course, the Brit Pack is not the end of the road for upcoming AMS content - it is in fact just the beginning!

We have hinted before what´s coming down the road but haven´t quite gone into the specifics - in fact I can´t quite detail all the specifics for all DLC packs just yet, but for the sake of providing some relevant reference for those who have acquired or are considering buying the Season Pass, here are some preliminary info along with a few hints we can share to give you a better idea (please keep in mind the exact contents of each and the timelines may still be subject to some shuffling as we move forward):

Brit Pack

Legendary Tracks Part 1: Imola (1972, 1988, 2001, 2016 versions)
New Series - TBA (hint: big and heavy)

New series - TBA (hint: Classic content)

January 2017:
Legendary Tracks Part 2 - TBA (hint: it´s got a long historical variant)

February 2017:
Car pack from a major manufacturer - TBA (hint: it´s awesome)

March 2017:
Legendary Tracks Part 3 - TBA (hint: not a permanent road course)
Aussie Racing Car

As we progress we will naturally be detailing these packs further, but those will be topics for future dev updates - starting next month when I hope to be able to share some of the bigger things, both literally and figuratively :p

Keep in mind that as more stuff is confirmed, prices for both the Season Pass on Steam & Membership pack here are bound to receive another upgrade - the sooner you get onboard, the more value you´ll get for your buck.

Not forgetting that there are also a couple of free items still to be added to the base game, like Ibarra and a couple of dirt / mixed track courses before AMS development finally wraps at some point in Q1 2017.

Worth reminding also that AMS Base Game is currently selling 20% off on Steam. As usual though the best prices for both base game as well as membership packs (including the DLC Season Pass) can be found in our forum store.

That covers it for this month - now back to work to wrap that v1.1 & Brit Pack :)

About This Game

AUTOMOBILISTA puts you in the driving seat of one of the most advanced racing simulators and delivers a uniquely diverse motorsports experience!

As the natural successor to Reiza Studios´ previous title - the highly regarded Stock Car Extreme, originally released in 2013 - AUTOMOBILISTA continues to simulate the premium Brazilian racing series such as Stock Car V8, Copa Petrobras de Marcas, Formula 3 Brasil and Mitsubishi Lancer Cup, now packing every car and every track from their respective 2015 championships.

Beyond the brazilian core, AUTOMOBILISTA is extensively complemented with one of the most diverse selections or racing vehicles you will find in a racing game: only in AUTOMOBILISTA will you be able to jump from a rental kart to a 800-HP single-seater; from drifting a Rallycross EvoX to jumping ramps in a Supertruck; from mastering the driving basics in a Formula Vee to managing a full 24h race in an endurance prototype; back and forth through historical and modern content featuring a sample from several decades of racing history - all of this and much more within a few mouse clicks. Thoroughly researched and cohesively developed for maximum simulation accuracy, AUTOMOBILISTA captures the fun only motorsports in its various forms can provide.

In addition to the content already present in Stock Car Extreme - all of which comprehensively upgraded - AUTOMOBILISTA turns it up to a new level by adding all the new cars & tracks proposed in the SimRacing Bonanza crowdfunding campaign, new simulation features such as dynamic track conditions, advanced transmission and tire modelling, substantial upgrades to physics, graphics & audio, new game modes and much more!

    These are some of the features that make AUTOMOBILISTA stand out as a purebred racing simulator:
  • Upscaled 720 Hz physics and 500 Hz input rates grants AMS super-accurate, high fidelity physics and Force Feedback
  • Vehicle physics based on models developed for professional racing teams with in-depth exclusive data
  • Minutely detailed and accurately modelled race tracks with 3D bumps, custom road properties and air density according to its location and altitude
  • Engine sounds sampled from high-quality recordings of real cars
  • Capturing the ever-changing demands of racing.
  • Cars with old-style gearbox mechanisms will demand proper gear engagement by using the clutch or synchronizing revs.
  • Modern cars will demand handling of advanced electronic systems.
  • High downforce cars will create an aerodynamic wake for those that follow.
  • 24h cycles will allow racing from dusk to dawn and at night.
  • Dynamic track conditions turn the racing line into a grippy rubbery trail and builds up marbles offline
  • Dynamic tire damage & dirt pickup add further extra dimensions to the driving experience

This sim is simply amazing. It has evolved so far from its early inception as game stock car. At the heart of the sim It has motorsports pedigree physics courtesy of Niels Husinkveld. The car models, skins, tracks, menus, force feedback, wheel support, sounds etc, every thing is 10/10. in its most recent incarnation as Automobilista, the wheel rotation is adjusted per vehicle automatically if you so choose for ease of use, and there is a multiplyer adjustment for low speed force feedback so our cheap wheels despite their limitations can feel full feedback even at lower speeds. Every car is utterly brilliant and so distict in it's handling. The only thing that is not a 10/10 is the behaviour of the karts, but that is no fault of the developers, it is just the limitation of the aged and heavly modified rfactor engine. Niels is more than capable of producing top notch kart physics.Reiza studio's has extracted every last drop of performance from the RF1 engine, Hats off to everybody at Reiza studio's, can't wait to see what they do next.

Ok, If your are new to this, Automobilista is actually the next version of Stock Car Extream.
I've been playing the beta version of this game, so don't let my game time here put you off this review.
I've heard many reports that this is just rFactor all over again. Yes it uses the rFactor engine, but what has been achieved here far exceeds what any others have managed. If you were to get rFactor, download all the best mods, set up everything perfectly, follow guides etc.. you would not come close to what this game does out the box, without mods.
You actually do not need to add mods at all. In most cases you will in fact undue the great work that has gone on here if you do.
There are some mod added tracks available that are Automobilista quality, but try to avoid filling up the locations folder...just because you can. Stick with the original content and drive until you can do it well.
If you want the best visuals, then buy Project cars, otherwise look no further, unless online racing is all you do, in which case go iRacing. Thanks to everyone who has worked on this project. It is fantastic. Shame nobody reads these reviews.

If I could just have one sim I'd probably take this one. Great bang for the bucks! All major series included (F1, F3, Porsche Cup, V8 Supercars etc) and some smaller (Formula Vee, Supertrucks, Brazilian Stockcar etc), which are great fun nonetheless. Keep in mind that these series mostly use fantasy names and liveries, however the game is modable and there are several skinpacks available. Also there are plenty of good addon-tracks and cars out there (make sure to download the CART mod, it's spectacular). With the brit pack arriving soon this sim will improve once again with three new tracks and cars like Caterhams, Formula Ford, Ultima GTR (street and road version) and MCR 2000. In my opinion the FFB and physics in Automobilista are one of the best. Only downside: if you are looking for online action you'll have to join a league, because public MP is a wasteland, unfortunately.

1. Look, Feel and GUI.
. The way the GUI is set out is very intuative. It does not takc long for you to get used to the menu. Everything is at your fingertips. I actually like the way it is set up. Although the game looks and feels a little bit dated it still up there with Assetto and PC,

2. The racing.
. Very very hard learning curve. Once you get it though it's hard to race anything else. It just looks, feels like you are driving a race car. This game is not for the faint hearted. (will add more content here soon)

3. Singleplayer. (will add more content here soon)

4. Multiplayer. (will add more content here soon)

I heard a lot about this game and was excited about the track evolution aspect. After downloading it, and selecting the No Assist option, I then spent about 20 minutes trying to find out why it was still auto upshifting for me. After a Google search, I discovered that selecting manual wasn't enough (WTH??). There was a second setting for upshifting. Whatever, I moved on and started tackling the FFB. It felt promising, but when I went to start dialing it in, I realized there was no FFB meter (again... WTH?). I found a lot of information online, telling me to make manually adjustments in the config .ini files. That seemed a little archaic, and coupled with the lack of an FFB meter, I was just really turned off at this point.

To make matters worse, the graphics are very, VERY dated looking, compared to just about any racing game made within the past 7 years. I have a GTX 1080 and had the settings cranked, viewing it on a 4K screen. It still looked dated. Even the onscreen HUD overlays looked like they were made for a kid's game.

At the 1.5 hour mark, I just gave up an returned it. If I didn't already have three sims that I was thoroughly enjoying, I might have spent more time trying to massage AMS into shape. But there just seemed to be too much blind fiddling required.

Verdict: Refunded.

Not very realistic for a sim. Cars drive pretty bad and unrealistic. Compared to iRacing and rFactor

Absolute garbage, dont understand all the positve reviews on here. Been on Pcars for a long time now and after seeing reviews on here thought it would be good to have a bit of a change. Only upsides I saw were ease of setup and ffb on the wheel. Graphics crap, handling crap and mp terrible. Refund on the way.

+ Great physics
+ Great FFB
+ No crawling textures and no interfering in the textures
+ Great content (still people use a lot of mods?)
+ Fun driving
+ Day-Night cycle during racing
+ Leaderboards
+ Nice Forum (More activity in the forum then in online races :) )

- No Ghostcar
- Malfunctioning timing tools
- To few people playing online (and half of them is in locked servers or are playing mods)
- To much leaque racing, no fun for lone-riders
- Modable, Mod cars polute the "Real" content by using their slots
- AI is predictable, almost every track has a slow corner for overtaking the AI

It is a great experience driving the cars in AMS on the AMS tracks, but that's all for me. Driving the cars
I have about 300 hours in this and the beta version, but i'm getting a bit bored now, just driving around
There seems to be no development in the gaming experience
Keep my hopes high for what the future brings

Being a professional sim racer for years,after playing great titiles such as Gran Turismo,Rfactor and Assetto corsa,i've been thinking to own something new,well Automobilista is the asnwer for the new change.The graphics are better to that of rf2,physics are on a different level that you can't even compare with the best sims out there.Handling is quite need to increase the steering lock or else the car tends to be lazy at corners.There are many mods on Race Department.The problem in the game lies with AI,they don't perform well on mod tracks (not an issue at all).Well drawbacks of the game is...
1.No green hell (Nurburgring)
2.No rain/weather changes
3.No big car brands
4.Setting FFB is tricky
5.Many control inputs
& 6.Getting onto onlin racing and setting up a room is a very big process
Overall,this game has been developed on rf1 engine and yet,the game is simply superb......Happy racing
