  2. TinyPedal 1.3.0 (2022-05-16) [New]Stint Widget Show realtime stint data, includes: front & rear tire compound index, with customizable letter. total driven laps. total driven time (min:sec). total used fuel in liters or gallons. total average tire wear. Show "last stint" data bar that displays last full stint. Note: All current stint data resets when player makes a full-serviced pit stop (either refueled or tire changed). Current stint data will only be transfered and displayed in "last stint data" bar, if player makes a full-serviced pit stop. ESC & restarting in a session or race will not have stint data transfered to "last stint data". This is to prevent incomplete or useless data from overriding normal last stint data. Currently, stint data is not saved to external file. Misc Updated customization guide with new configurable setting for Stint Widget. Updated features.md with Stint Widget info.

Increased the rate of RealRoad calculations by approximately x4. Added a server option to disable faster real road calculations, as this adds approximately an extra 4KBps per client to server overheads. Improved real road update rates. They’re now separate per real road property, with wet road having a higher update rate. Minor update to default weather conditions for different profiles (Rainy/Overcast/Sunny etc). New algorithm for wet road calculations effecting how quickly surfaces get wet and dry, taking into account drainage, humidity, ambient temperature and sky weather conditions. Updated tyre grip calculations on rubbered in areas when surfaces are wet. Updated how road and rain conditions are reported. Old percentage values now snap to a set percent for each tyre of condition, masking the true absolute condition in the game. The Default HUD has been updated to show a text description. Corrected Rear Flap System default wet weather disable point to work with new weather ranges. Fixed an issue where Cameras constrained to specific paths would not work correctly in replays. Extended Freelook mode to allow control via joypads as well as adjustments of exposure, aperture, sensor size and focus. Graphics Added spark effects. Decreased interval of Static Mapper updates from 5 minutes to 10 seconds. This should result in smoother lighting changes at dawn / dusk and as weather conditions change. Corrected Sky Colour to remove Cyan effect. Slight adjustments to exposure for sky colour adjustments when sun at it’s highest. Minor Atmospheric Corrections, including linking AirMass to AirPollution. Reducing fog brightness slightly. Reduced Exposure a touch when the sun is around 10 degrees of altitude. Improved cloud selection at different weather settings. Minor cloud texture improvements. Fixed an issue where Clouds would disappear at really high altitudes. Fixed issues with lighting interpolation in sky rendering at Dusk/Sunrise, which would result in jumps in lighting values. Fixed puddle splashes not setting when rain drops are not used (set to off or scene viewer). Fixed lighting on spray during wet conditions, and tweaked particle profile. Updated reflections on PBR Road and Curb Shaders. Updated Rain Particle settings and fixed rendering on ultra wide screens. Passed through particle settings refining Spray, Dust, Smoke and more. Fixed an issue in VR where the scene would over exposure. Fixed an issue in VR where replay mode would not render correctly. Physics Implemented enhanced cooling system for oil & water. This includes new parameters in the .hdv file. The new model includes: Direct heat transfer between water and oil. Oil radiator. Switchover Thermostat. Separated front and rear brake ducts. Added configurable gear shift protection. AI Added AI Dry Tyre strategy (Random Dry Tyre in Practice, Softs in Qualifying and try to pick an appropriate tyre for race strategy in race). AI now check if to change Tyre Type just before the pit road entry rather than at the start of the lap. Fixed various issues around AI Tyre Selection when session changes and weather changes – such as not switching to wet tyres when it was dry before but now is wet. Fixed an issue with calculating road conditions when changing session where they would not fully compute. Fixed an issue where cars that don’t allow pit stop refuelling would run a full tank in practice and qualifying. Prevent AI from leaving pits in closed session. Fixed an issue where if there was a set of valid wet tyres, intermediate tyres would default to dry tyres. UI Always show official sticky servers in the server list even if filters are active. Enabled “Restart warmup” button also when event is in race session. Updated button layout in session controls and setup summary. Added fading out of screen when leaving event or replay. Added condensing of tire name when too long to fit in event standings table. Added help text when hovering over various settings. Added music to showroom. Changed breaking of long chat lines so they only break on full words. Fixed getting stuck in assign control pop-up after assigning tab key.

Disabled “Default max wheel angle” setting when “Max wheel angle mode” is set to automatic. Disabled “Steering wheel range” setting when “Range set by vehicle” setting is enabled. Hid the car selection list when the drive/spectate pop-up is showing when joining a server directly with a join link. Changed searching for cars and tracks so that the list scroll position is kept at the top after search (clearing the search text will scroll to the selected item). Enabled car selection on server during a practice session. Made it possible to add multiple custom graphics profiles. Made it possible to add multiple custom gameplay difficulty profiles. Always sort “All Tracks & Cars” to the top of the list in singleplayer series selection. Added fallback image for showcase tile in case the actual image cannot be loaded. Updated showcase, news and store tiles background image positioning and scaling. Added option to expand server chat window to full height. Setup notes for the highlighted setup (the one you clicked on in the setup list but not yet loaded) are now shown on the setup summary page. Setup notes can now be typed in the setup summary page (the setup still has to be saved to save the changes). When saving a setup, the folder for the current track will be selected by default (instead of the folder of the loaded setup). Removed automatically expanding all found items in car and track selection after search. Added highlighting of selected opponent filters. Fixed multiplayer screen with drive/spectate pop-up showing too soon when using +connect to join a server, and if and when content install is still in progress. You can now select car upgrades directly from the car selection screen without going to the showroom (both in singleplayer and multiplayer). Disabled singleplayer grid position setting if qualifying is enabled. Added two new gearbox graphs: Top speed per gear RPM after upshift The existing graph, gear spacing, is kept as a third option Fixed occasional blank page in the first launch wizard when going to the exit screen and back. Reordered difficulty settings and sliders. Singleplayer RealRoad settings are now enabled only when the weather preset is set to “Scripted”. Renamed “Steering effects strength” setting to “Force feedback direction”. Singleplayer “Race Laps” and “Race Time” settings are now disabled/enabled based on the “Finish Criteria” setting. A singleplayer session can now also be enabled by clicking on the disabled session button in quick event. The “Drive” button now changes to a “Next session” button when session time runs out in singleplayer.

    BTCC cars

    Toyota Corolla BTCC The best of tin top racing the UK has to offer, the introduction of these two outstanding British Touring Car machines is a very welcome addition to rFactor 2, and just the very start of our quest to bring the full 2021 / 22 British Touring Car Championship field to the simulation this year. Initially launching today with the car of reigning champion Ash Sutton in the form of the Infiniti Q50 (V37), as run by Laser Tools Racing, and the potent Toyota Corolla of Speedworks Motorsport, these two cars are a perfect way to experience how top level touring car action can feel within rFactor 2 – and trust us when we say, these two racers feel nothing short of outstanding out on the circuit. Infiniti Q50 (V37) BTCC Somewhat unique to touring car racing, the BTCC features both front and real wheel drive machinery on the same grid, which presents a very interesting opportunity for us to begin our BTCC journey with two very, very different driving experiences. Keeping the traditional front-wheel drive in the Corolla, drivers will need to adapt their driving style significantly in comparison to the more usual real wheel driven machinery found in modern motorsport. Torque steer and a need to understand how to best balance the car on brakes and throttle application will be key to unlocking the most laptime from the Corolla, whereas in the Infiniti, although a real wheel driven car, the fine line between grip and dancing over the edge of adhesion is never far from the drivers mind – which is, to be fair, a wonderful place to find yourself when you are out on the virtual racing circuits of the world. TOYOTA COROLLA BTCC INFINITI Q50 V37 BTCC
