- New Emil Frey Jaguar G3 car.
- New laserscanned Circuit Zolder racetrack.
- New special events with online leaderboards.
- Fixed disappearing main menu UI in VR.
- Texture memory optimizations.
- Fixed a chase cam rotation bug.
- Fixed a TV camera bug.
- Car light improvements in TV camera views.
- New inertia calculation method and new more accurate inertia value (advice for setups, use softer fast damper to let the body move and settle, instead of having the car and wheels jumping)
- New motion ratio calculation for dampers resulting in more accurate values dedicated for each car.
- New ABS feature. ABS now never lets higher than 70% difference between left and right brake pressure. Improves behaviour on extreme torque vectoring, like braking and going through a water puddle with one side of the car, but can result in inner wheel locking if driver insists braking hard while turning into a turn. Might need more rear brake bias on certain cars.
- Improved ABS logic, resulting in better turn-in under braking, on certain cars (most notably modern cars such as the Huracán, F488, BMW M6).
- Improved TC off on gear-change functionality. TC is instantly switched off and on again when a gearchange occurs, in order to protect the engine and drivetrain from heavy vibrations, especially on situations where kerbs and the engine limiter are involved (part of real cars' TC logic too, occasionally they will even not allow the gearchange). Now the TC off timing is car-dedicated and optimised. Some cars might handle a gear change better than others.
- Improved tyre thermal model, especially wet tyres.
- Improved tyre grip when tyres are overheated, such as after a spin.
- More tyre wear when tyres are overheated, no free meal.
- Corrected bumpstop position and functionality of the Ferrari 488 GT3.
- New ECU maps for all cars. ECU maps now influence power, fuel consumption and throttle maps. Usually the lower number is the more powerful and has the most power consumption. After the initial 3-4 values, it switches to wet ECUmaps with similar power and fuel consumption but different throttle maps. Please check the official forum for all the released cars' ECU map characteristics.
- New launch control for all cars. Now with manual clutch, just engage 1st gear, put the clutch and accelerator to the floor and the engine will stabilize around 5000rpm. Release the clutch gradually while keeping the accelerator fully open to avoid stalling.
- Audio engine optimizations
- Fixed potential wrong volumes switching cameras
- Fixed time multiplier for the end race replay
- Fixed wrong trackmap cars position during replay
- Intro sequence updated
Aus dem Dev-Blog:
Early Access 0.5 - Great new car and track, and a bit of maintenance
Having a look at the 0.5 release patch notes, you will find that most changes are either new content or physics related. Regarding gameplay elements – including Multiplayer features – we decided to opt for a different path, which may need some explanation for non-developers.
While developing software, especially games, you constantly invent patterns and concepts. When we built the ACC gameplay during 2018, we aimed for a certain way to write the game logic, including everything from session handling, race timing, laptimes, penalties and so on. Our solution had some amazing feats and ways of working, but we also had to learn that one of the disadvantages was making the development of Multiplayer features not as efficient as we had wished for. You may have noticed that although we met our roadmap targets on time in terms of content and features, several things involving Multiplayer were late. This is not really unusual or surprising; moving a whole development team to a new engine and framework required us to learn about the new situation as the project evolved (but we didn't know where this would happen, obviously).
In December we faced the choice to either keep proceeding like that, adding as little changes as necessary to achieve a stable 1.0 Multiplayer, and then never to touch it again.
The alternative route is a rewrite of (a lot of) the code to switch to concepts that support our current needs and the things we learned. The disadvantage is obvious; we'd have to spend a lot of work to change ACC without – seemingly – adding gamplay related features and fixes for a certain amount of time, however, the gain is a much more stable environment, where we can keep adding features and also speed up future development.
I can tell it's unusual to go for a rewrite, but it expresses our approach and our plans to go on, even beyond ACC 1.0. Technically speaking, a few developers forked off the codebase and worked day and night to do the re-coding, with the goal of bringing those improvements to the main code as soon as possible. The new features on the list therefore are there, but not in this build, and we most probably will also bring them one after another even looking beyond the 1.0 release, since the development will continue to bring our audience the 2019 Season update, and more.
Being myself also responsible for ACC Multiplayer development, I needed to slow down the work on the Rating System, but likely this re-work on some of the code that we use as a foundation will help the Rating System, too, to proceed even smoother.
As a bottom line: enjoy the new content, both the car and track (in my opinion) are fabulous, and see how ACC keeps developing in the future.
I'm writing this between Multiplayer tests (on the new code), we are on a very good way – but sadly we will not see this outside the test systems for the time being.

auch bei ACC geht es bald weiter. Update 0.6 soll in den kommenden Tagen kommen, hier noch der letzte Developer Blog Post:
With the 6th update, we will introduce many interesting additions (besides the iconic Monza Circuit and both Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3s), but it will also be the first public version based on the significant changes and refactoring we decided to go for back in December.
You will for sure notice small enhancements such as improved camera features, up to possible game changers like the radar widget, performance gains and massively improved overall stability. On top of working on several gameplay-related concepts, we also evaluated much of the experience we had already collected during the first 5 releases in the Early Access programme. For instance, in multiplayer we reworked (if not changed completely the concepts of) the netcode, session handling, entry lists, timing, leaderboards and configuration (server admins: massive changes, see here).
First of all, it means that none of the reports and bugs for earlier versions are valid anymore, and we need to look if we find new things. But this also means that we applied the same changes to the corresponding singleplayer modes, so most of our efforts actually were aimed at the complete gameplay instead of being restricted to multiplayer.
As already noted, the multiplayer changed a lot from a technical point of view, while the end-user experience should be pretty much the same. You will find the same server selection, join a server and go out and drive. Aside from a few menu changes, if we did the job well, you won't find too much of a difference from the 0.5 multiplayer version, except in:
- improved performance (mostly CPU side)
- improved stability
- reduced ping peaks
- no unexpected situations due to invisible server settings
The last point is quite important: unlike the previous versions, we sharply restricted what server admins can configure - the goal is to avoid a situation where for example a StabilityControl user could join a server, notice the grip is low (but the admin only disallowed SC use). We will open up options when the time comes, but the interesting ones (and their consequences) will be understandable in the server list, even before you join a server.
At this point I need to make a note: it is very possible, that some of our official servers will introduce a few different settings, so it's entirely possible that there will be surprises for you - however the servers will be named accordingly.
Server admins additionally will notice that the bandwidth required to run a server is reduced by ~30-40%, depending on the amount of drivers online. Full servers will be close to those 40%. Will be happy to hear how your benchmarks confirm those estimates.
The main goal of our past efforts are to build the foundation of a rock solid multiplayer system, and now is the time to identify things we could not see in our internal tests - but I'm highly confident that you will find yourself in exciting racing action with 0.6
(and I can't wait to join).
As being said, the focus on 0.6 was clearly put on the gameplay aspects, but we will still see a bit of movement on the side of the ratings:
- Track Competence (TR) now has a slightly improved feedback UI, where you see the total sections/corners to make for the next progress level
- Consistency (CN) was sharpened a bit (and is the rating with the biggest impact due to the refactoring)
- CarControl (CC) took the biggest hit; it is a lot easier and a lot harder at the same time now - depending on your personal level. Inexperienced drivers will have a hard time to reach the 50 CC value to unlock PC, but will receive the feedback they should need to improve their driving
- Pace (PC) is not changed yet, but will be during the next days: So far we had a linear dependency between leaderboard ranks and PC rating; however this resulted in getting 98 or 99 rating for most experienced drivers. After this change, you will find the 50 PC mark untouched, but the higher values are more in line with CN and CC; 98 or 99 will *really* mean something
- Total (TO) is not changed, but for sure needs a recalibration once we finalize the other ratings
- General: also within the next days, you will find the new maximum value will be 99 (opposed to 100)
- General: the 0.6 client has an array of preparations included that allows us to do a sequence of planned changes during the next weeks, so be aware of improvements for RC and the TO rating.
Right now I'm very happy about especially CC - but as usual we will need to look at real world data and reports before we can close this book. Grateful for any feedback and reports.
#3 Ratings reset
We knew this day would come: With 0.6, everybody will start out from 0. This allows us to precisely see how everyone is progressing through the lower ratings (and also allowed some fundamental changes on the server side).
Note: It's entirely possible that we reset again, but it's also possible that this was the last reset.
#4 Broadcasting disabled
For the moment, we had to disable the broadcasting UDP interface we introduced with 0.5. We will try to do our best to bring it back as soon as possible, but right now the priority is to make the overall game as good and stable as we want it to be.
Question for the modders here: Sadly, the interface was made based on the concepts we rewrote with 0.6, so the easiest (and most future-proof) way to go would involve changes in the protocol, which would require changes in the code you've written since 0.5. How do you feel about this?
That's it from my side for today - I hope you enjoy the eagerly awaited 0.6 version.
