It seems we were a bit early in assuming Kunos Simulazioni had stopped tweaking and improving their latest big update after some fairly small hotfixes. There’s a substantial amount of changes included in Assetto Corsa Competizione Hotfix 1.8.5 and 1.8.6, which can be downloaded now.
Some changes to existing cars including adjusting the steering ratio on both examples of the Ferrari 488 GT3 and Lamborghini Huracan GT3, and changing the brake bias and brake power for setup presets on the Maserati GT4. Other notable additions include further adjustments to how the AI makes strategic decisions due to the weather, and fixing a bug which could prevent automatically saved games from loading.
As always, the updates for the PC come directly from Kunos Simulazioni on a different timetable to any releases for the console versions of Assetto Corsa Competizione, which are handled by 505 Games.
