DRL SIM 3.0 Update Announcement


Hello Pilots,
The team has been hard at work on the DRL Sim 3.0 update for a while now and we hope that the wait will have been worth it. Few quick things to address before we move on though:

- The Leaderboards will be reset as a part of this update, New Physics, New Life.

- A few of the drones will be made unavailable until we finish collecting and implementing physics data in order to achieve the best experience.

- We are still looking into fixing the issues involved with Steam Input system, so for the time being please remember to set your Steam Input Per-Game to Forced Off .

Physics
- New physics based on Georgia Tech and Optitrack data;
- Added Prop Wash effect (can be adjusted in Settings -> Options);
- Resolved camera orientation issues;
- Corrected camera tilt staying on screen when pausing sim to change tilt.

Input/Controllers
- Calibration improvements to speed up and refine calibration process;
- Added warning message for when controller is not detected.

Graphics
- FPS limit increased to 1,000 with VSYNC OFF.

Maps
- Championship Kingdom Map.

UI
- Added new drone selection screen;
- Created new “Featured Tracks” section to highlight featured tracks from the simulator team and the community;
- Changed Open Class Leaderboards default to “Default Physics” instead of “Custom Physics”;
- Made several tweaks to Map Voting UI;
- Completed background optimization on “Race Complete” and Map Editor pause screens;
- Updated Tryouts card to link to Swatch Tryouts broadcast and results;
- Corrected Missions typographical issues;
- Added settings button for Race Complete screen.

Multiplayer
- Resolved issue with ESC key not working in spectator;
- Added “Timeout” label;
- Resolved issue with pagination in room list;
- Improved visual of room time limit counter;
- Resolved issue with player standings in spectate mode;
- Hid Nano Class.

Other bug fixes and tweaks
- Fixed issue with crashing and resetting causing drone flip instead of respawn;
- Resolve issue with restart/reset switches ;
- Fix issue with Camera FOV and tilt sliders remaining visible on pause menu.

Leaderboards reset
Due to the large changes in Physics all leaderboards have been reset. Additionally, all custom drones have been reset because we are validating the bench tests and aerodynamic profiles of all the parts in the game outside of the ones that are not included with this release. Expect more parts and more frames to be added back into the game in regular intervals.

As always we would like to thank your for your continued support of the Sim and we hope to make it even better as time goes on. It was great seeing so many of you out in Vegas for Tryouts and we hope to have even more events in the future. If you want to join the community, please feel free to join our Discord server or Facebook Group via the links on the bottom bar of the Sim. KaNoodle and FPVgan stream almost every day on our Twitch channel and are happy to help new and perspective users.
