Sector3 Studios don’t seem to have paused for a second since adding the Porsche 911 RSR, updated 911 GT3 Cup car and Daytona International Speedway, with more RaceRoom updates available now. And that’s with a major release just a few days old as well.
So following the big update 0.9.0.957 which tweaked a huge range of cars, there have been two small hotix patches released with more minor changes to specific vehicles, classes and AI behaviour. Version 0.9.0.958 arrived on Friday, shortly followed by 0.9.0959 on Saturday, giving me the distinct impression that no-one at the Swedish development studio ever rests.
So what’s included in each of the two new updates?
RaceRoom Update 0.9.0.958
- Aquila – Improved baseline setup
- Group 5 – Fabcar – Fixed bad front brake temperatures
- Group 5 – Updated track-specific gear ratios, Equalised damper stiffnesses across the cars
- GT3 cars – Updated tyre model and modified baseline setups
- Norisring – Improved AI behaviour
- Nürburgring Sprint – Improved AI behaviour
RaceRoom Update 0.9.0.959
- GT3 – Fixed low framerate reported in the Callaway C7 R under 70kph
- GT3 – BOP adjustment to the McLaren 650S GT3
- GT3 cars – Reduced tyre heating
- GT4 – Porsche Cayman GT4 MR – Got rid of an unpleasant noise on gearshifts
Although the changes are small in number, there’s quite a lot of important things to note if you’re one of the many sim racers concentrating on GT3 cars. The RaceRoom GT3s all get an updated tyre model, reduced tyre heating and modified baseline set-ups, before we get to a balance of power change for the McLaren.
The Group 5 cars include some of my favourites in the game, with the early 1980s monsters including the BMW 320 Turbo, Nissan Silvia Turbo and Skyline 2000RS, Chevrolet Dekon Monza and Corvette, the Fabcar 935, and the Zakspeed Capri.
