- New Formation lap type for Multiplayer, including position tracking widget - to be used in official and CP servers and optional in private MP servers.
Guidelines:
- In "Single file" phase, player must follow the target widget, it should be relaxed enough to allow for warming up tyres and brakes.
Being out of target by significant margins results in teleport to pits.
- In "Double file" phase, players should find their target position as soon as possible and hold speed and side once there.
- In "Pre-green" phase (when the speed delta appears), players must lock their speed to the delta.
Speeding or moving out of lateral and longitudinal position during the pre-green phase grants a penalty based on severity.
The system works on a protect-the-innocent basis, the player can ignore what other cars are doing around them, the important thing to pay attention to is their own position and speed.
Collisions are disabled during the formation lap and regained once any overlap is ended.
- New dynamic fast formation spawns for MP.
- Server and client penalties now correctly accumulate.
- Server post-race time penalties are now applied on top of mid-race penalties.
- Pitlane speeding in non-race sessions no longer disqualifies the player, only teleports the client back to the pits.
- Fixed missing lap countdown for Race Control penalties.
- Temporarily disabled server settings: "isRaceLocked" (active by default) and event rules "driverStintTimeSec" and "maxTotalDrivingTime".
- Updated server admin handbook to provisional version 6a.

- TR rating now scales dependent on DLC ownership.
- SA Trust generation adjustments.
- CP servers will run DLC tracks in a parallel schedule.
- CP servers will adaptively select DLC tracks on unknown track days when a large majority of registrations owns the DLC.

PHYSICS:
- Top TC level for storm conditions for all cars.
- Silverstone and Nurburgring 2019 BOP tweak for the Mclaren 720S GT3.
- Tweaks on the front splitter of the Porsche 991II GT3 R.
- Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Spa wet preset tweaks (both non-evo and Evo).
- Rain puddle tweaks.
- Fixed rear wing last value Porsche 991II GT3 R.
- New wet tyres model: less adhession grip, slower laptimes, better control in sliding situations.
- Aerodynamics - vertical fin calculation improvements.
- Aerodynamics - slipstream tweaks and larger turbolence area, can cause slight lateral movements if you follow a car from very near side and behind
- Chassis flex implementation:
Chassis flex is more of a qualitative than quantitative influence. You will notice the car handling kerbs quite better, accepting more steering input when sliding and more willingness to react on your inputs at the limit. At the same time, handling will be a bit less precise and might force you to work harder to be precise with your line, or correct your line during a turn.
Chassis flex also influences setup changes. Cars with more flex (softer chassis) usually need softer springs and better damping. Cars with less chassis flex (rigid chassis) can handle stiffer springs and be more precise, but might suffer at lower speeds and mechanical grip on bumps and kerbs.
- Altitude simulation for all tracks. Higher altitude means less air density resulting in lower engine performance, less downforce but also less drag. The heating model of tyres and brakes is also slightly influenced. Laptimes on some circuits might be a bit lower (i.e. Spa)
- Tyre model: tweaks and fine tuning offer more predictable grip over the limit for both slicks and more importantly wet tyres.
- Brake pads and discs wear implementation and different brake pads choice:
Brake pads and brake discs wear is relative to the brake pad choice, temperatures, driving style, ABS and brake bias usage. Brake disc and pad wear is shown at the end of each driving session, when you return to your strategy setup UI on the "last readings" box.
Normally brake discs should last more than 24 hours race, but because there is no pitstop time penalty (all teams are obliged to at least one fixed time long pitstop so that they can change brakes), all teams prefer to change discs and pads at least one time during long endurance races.
There are 3 different brake pads available to choose from, each with its own characteristics and different brake pads front and rear are permitted.
-- Pad 1: Very aggressive friction coefficient, max braking performance, aggressive disc and pad wear. Pedal modulation can be tricky if out of temperature or as it wears down. Use in hotlap and qualifying sessions, sprint races and can withstand 3 hours races. Risky and dangerous to use over 3 or 4 hours because the pads will wear down, overheat and lose linearity in brake pedal.
-- Pad2: Very Good friction coefficient, very good braking performance, good disc and pad wear. Pedal modulation almost always good and linear, good feedback while overheating and gradual wear. Can be used in hotlap and qualifying sessions as well as sprnt races as what it loses in performance, regains in braking modulation and predictability. Excellent choice for long endurance races, easily makes 12 hours and can make 24 hours race too with a bit of care. Will also overheat and lose linearity in brake pedal feel when worn out, but in a more predictable way and after much longer stints.
-- Pad3: Moderate friction coefficient, braking zones can be longer in dry, very moderate disc and pad wear. Excellent pedal modulation also in cold ambient conditions, very linear pedal feedback. Excellent choice for wet conditions and very long endurance races. Very predictable and easy to modulate brake pad.
-- Pad 4, extreme aggressive fiction coefficient. Max braking performance, extremely aggressive disc and pad wear, bad cold performance. This is a sprint race pad that can last about an hour but will show worse pedal feel, worse performance and overheating towards the end of the one hour stint. Those kinds of pads are not used in endurance racing, but included for demonstration purposes.
- Fixed Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT3 excessive engine damage.
- Bentley Continental GT3 2018 performance tweaks
- Fixed FFB damper not stopping during game pause.
- Fixed an error that could cause wrong relative impact speeds for collisions.
- Reworked damage system with accumulative damage resulting from impacts of various intensity.
A significant improvement over the old system that always required a larger impact per damage zone to produce more damage.
Repetitive impacts now have a much more substantial effect on the car's condition and the car is much less tolerant versus repetitive hits.
All cars have tweaks and fine tuned damage values (physics) but be careful as the damage can easily accumulate and repetitive small hits can result in severe damage in the end. Also introducing damage threshold to allow (reasonable) paint trading without affecting car behaviour.
- Low-speed aero damage now produces less negative effect on drag.
- Reduced front-rear damage detection cone.

AUDIO:
- Fixed doppler fluctuation for external engine sound.
- Added tyre brake wear audio.
- Optimized audio channels used for wheel in external/opponent sounds.
- Fixed audio options not applied on start level.
- Reworked spotter damage messages (smarter and based on cumulative damage).

MULTIPLAYER:
- Competition Servers are now running in a schedule, offering up to 3 races per day with variations. Read more in the dedicated forum post: https://www.assettocorsa.net/forum/index.php?threads/1-2-competition-server-changes.61085/
- The region assignment for CP servers is technically different now, potentially fixing the "No servers in your region" error.
- The CP rating buildup is working in a more logical way now, which could cause to reset CP ratings to zero or lower values for some users. This will automatically wash out after a few CP races.
- Significantly improved CPU load with opponent count with certain (most) types of CPU. This is not necessarily affecting FPS, but dramatically increases the number of cars we can run before the 99% CPU occupancy warning.
- Significantly improved collision calculation efficiency, causing to scale CPU load a lot better (with all CPUs) on the physics thread.
- Enabled multiple-pit-assignments for private servers, resulting in higher grid counts for certain tracks. At the moment Monza and Paul Ricard support 60 cars on the grid this way.
- Fixed netcode warping for higher speeds (for certain server operating systems).
- Fixed volatile and too high ping measurement (for certain server operating systems).
- Further netcode improvements that increase the accuracy for cars on straights. This will make cars reliably drive with almost perfect distance, except one of both overtaxes in the player's bandwidth upload (ie by livestreaming).
- Added additional (=custom) BoP for private MP servers: Server admins can now assign and set up additional ballast and intake restrictors.
NOTE: read the extended notes on the forum: https://www.assettocorsa.net/forum/...ultiplayer-rating-changes.61195/#post-1100520
- Session-over result screen in MP now correctly switches the table between current standing (like 2nd MFD panel) during overtime and the final race results (including disconnected drivers) after the session has ended for all cars.
- Fixed MP car despawn issue in the highlights (and in some cases in the normal replay).
- Fixed replay world time affecting real time in MP (animations).
- Fixed potentially wrong bodykit loaded in MP.
- Servers will now log their current configuration (as it is actually understood by the server) to the "cfg/current" folder; this is helpful for troubleshooting.
- Short formation laps will now always start in "Double file", indepentently of the actual trigger position.
- Fixed a client crash when the selected customized "carX.json" file was physically removed.
- Improved the lead car detection during the formation lap.
- Fixed pit limiter effectively turning off after a driver swap.
- Improved the message the player receives when trying to join a server with the wrong car model (both entry list with forced car model, and CP servers with unknown tracks).

RATINGS:
- SA rating will apply a Trust Bonus for finished races, dependent on the race length.
- SA rating will not assign points to certain situations where the other car is clearly at fault.
- Added more "outcome" scenarios for accidents, to be able to improve the understanding of "nothing happened" in SA considerations.
- Rebalancing of Singleplayer SA values to balance the massively clean AI in 1.2.
- Fixed a timing issue which could make the contact bag inefficient in some situations.
- Overall, SA will be more tolerant and precise, resulting in becoming slightly easier again.
- (Significant) wall contacts now will act like off-track; resetting track medal progress, invalidating laptimes and cause race penalties if the car gained time.
- (Significant) wall contacts are now considered a root contact like mass accidents, so a second car hit by a car bouncing off a wall would not receive SA penalties.
NOTE: read the extended notes on the forum: https://www.assettocorsa.net/forum/...ultiplayer-rating-changes.61195/#post-1100520
- Fixed an issue where Laptime records would be recorded with incorrect times (caused by race starts after the s/f line).

Zandvoort Circuit is now featured in ACC as a 2019 restyled version of the bonus content originally provided with Assetto Corsa, together with an updated version of the tarmac for Spa Francorchamps, Barcelona and Silverstone and because on those tracks a tarmac rework has been done in real life during 2019, the game selects the racetrack version depending on the selected season.

New Features:
Not just new content, but also major features are coming with this 1.1 update. KUNOS Simulazioni has developed a custom modification to Unreal Engine 4, allowing for a dedicated triple monitor setups support that will allow independent settings on the 3 screens as in ACC’s predecessor. Further than this, Pit Stop Animations have been implemented and show full scene pit crew operations on the car such as refueling and tyre replacement. A new showroom is available in the vehicle selection page, allowing for zoom and rotation of the cars. Finally, a large amount of UI upgrades and performance optimizations are coming, together with a long list of physics updates. Complete changelog available on our forums and on Steam.

- Fixed ghostcar (disconnected car) during MP replay.
- RC Rating was rewritten and now works again both in SP and MP.
- RC will start at 0 while the old Elo value is still remembered.

- Enabled the collection of new driver statistics.
- Possible fix for MFD crash in MP when changing pit strategy after a driver swap.
