It’s billed as a small collection of hotfixes with a surprise, as the latest RaceRoom update improves AI and FR Junior physics. The Formula RaceRoom Junior is one of the cars included in the free download of the game, so the new and updated physics and tyre model is big news.
Obviously AI tweaks and improvements will also potentially make the game more challenging and fun for new and existing racers. Plus there are some updates for the default controller force feedback settings where problems had been reported.
Given the huge growth in interest in sim racing right now, and the fact RaceRoom Racing Experience allows anyone to download it for free for the PC and try some single player and online multiplayer before spending their money, it’s a great time for Sector3 Studios to be sharing improvements which will improve the experience for those new to virtual motorsport.
