Changelog
Membersite

  • The Membersite has been updated with the ability to select to use Dynamic Sky when creating a Hosted Session, and when using the TEST panel!

Connectivity

  • Fixed a bug that could cause cars to temporarily disappear if the Race Server hit a particular error condition.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause the set of cars that the Race server sends to a user to not necessarily be the cars that are closest.
    – – This could occur in two different situations: while a spectator in a Session, or if there was a network hiccup that caused a user to briefly “wink-out” inside the Race Server (the kind of error that could lead to laps being marked “discontinuity”).

Race Control

  • Fixed an issue where if a gained time checkpoint gets triggered in an area at or inside a very sharp corner of track geometry, the car could appear to already be before the checkpoint and cause the rule to immediately think the car had already yielded enough time and cancel the gained time tracking before it even started.

Heat Racing

  • Fixed a bug in the formation of the Feature Race starting grid that could improperly restrict the number of cars that make it into the Feature.
  • Fixed an issue where the results of drivers who would not run in the Feature Race where included in the pre-feature Warmup Session results.

Pit Stops

  • Improvements have been made to the wing and clip replacement algorithms so that now the repair timer is aware of them. It will report their progress as part of the required repairs countdown timer. This should help clarify when a car is still actively receiving repairs.

    – – – Chevrolet Corvette C7 Daytona Prototype = Nose replacement. Work only begins after the car comes off jacks.
