GTR Franchise Returning In 2018

cgighj9oho

 

18 months have past since any news relating to the GTR 3 Franchise. That silence has ended now, with word that the upcoming sim racer will be on the ground at Gamescom 2018 later this month.

Rather surprisingly, the news doesn’t come from developer SimBin itself. Instead, it comes from Catalyst Games, a Liverpool-based video game production outsourcing company. Rather conveniently, that’s the same city SimBin finds itself in.

 

The tweet reveals that GTR 3 will recreate the FIA World Endurance Championship. What’s interesting is that the 911 GT3 R in the picture doesn’t actually run in the WEC; that’d be the mid-engined 911 RSR. The two cars — The Racing Group’s No. 991 and the No. 9 Gulf Racing machine — competed in IMSA WeatherTech SCC and Super GT, respectively. This could suggest multiple series will at least be partially represented.

Regardless, the focus on the WEC puts the Unreal Engine 4-powered racer in a similar space to Assetto Corsa Competizione. Kunos’ upcoming title, which runs on the same engine, will put the Blancpain GT series in the spotlight when it hits Early Access September 12.

Both racers will feature full 24-hour time of day transitions. One important difference, however, is platform. SimBin is targeting both PC and consoles for GTR 3, whereas ACC is currently PC-only (though that could very well change).

Hosted Sessions

– Car Classes can now be selected when creating a hosted race.
– – Sessions are still limited to a total of 6 unique cars per session, and car classes can contain from 1 to 6 cars. The car class selections are grouped by the number of cars in the class.
– – – Car classes are represented as tabs in the interface, so only the cars for the selected car class are displayed.
– – This feature is currently only available on the Classic Membersite, not on the iRacing BETA Interface yet.

Custom Car Classes

– You are now able to create and edit your own Custom Car Classes for Hosted Sessions!
– – When selecting the “Use Car Classes” Option when creating a Hosted Session, a new link called “Create New Car Class…” is now displayed above the Car Class tabs. This link brings up a dialog where you can enter a name for the Custom Car Class and select a group of cars for that Custom Car Class. For “Rel. Speed” (Relative Speed), there is a suggested value displayed, which is the average of all the selected cars, but any number between 0 and 200 can be used.
– – – Rel. Speed values for Car Classes are hidden unless the “Grid Together” option is selected.
– – The Car Class dropdowns will now display iRacing’s Car Classes as well as any Custom Car Classes you have created. Custom Car Classes will include an asterisk (*) in the name.

This will bring up the same dialog used when creating a Custom Car Class.
– – By using Custom Car Classes, anything about a Car Class can be changed, although it is not recommended to stray too far from the original purpose of the Car Class.
– – Race Results from past races using a Custom Car Class will use the current name of the Custom Car Class that was used, not the name at the time of the event.
– – This feature is currently only available on the Classic Membersite, not on the iRacing BETA Interface yet.

Race Sessions

– An indicator denoting that a final Race event is Official (Ranked) or Unofficial (Unranked) has been restored to the Session screen and its Info page.
– The Popular Races list will now properly filter by Dirt Oval and Dirt Road.

Hosted Results

– The Date Range filter is now a primary filter, and it may not be deselected. This is to allow the most often viewed results to load faster.
– – The “From” date defaults to 30 days in the past.
– – The “To” date defaults to today.
– – This filter allows a maximum span of 90 days.

Dynamic Track

– Some updates have been made to the debris throwing system.
– – The physics for debris now utilize a new collision system. This should eliminate the ability for thrown particles to slip through walls, making their build-up more accurate.

Dirt

– Dirt heights across all areas of the track now allow for a greater possible range of dirt amounts.
– – This will allow for both a greater build-up of dirt on the track, and allow for deeper digging-down of the dirt surface.

– Dirt cushion modeling has been greatly improved.
– – This is a pretty big change to how dirt ovals behave as the tracks are worn in. With this update, the cornering force from the cushion and increased banking that naturally develops should be noticeably greater, and the outside should be faster as a result.

– The mean starting usage state for Dirt Oval Heat Races has been increased, and the variance of this value has also been increased slightly.

Rallycross

– The starting area for Rallycross tracks is now well defined for Race Control.
– – The F3 Black Box now correctly sorts the cars on the starting grid.
– The F3 Black Box is now aware of the starting area and the Joker Lap area when computing the time delta, and displaying information.
– – Cars on the race path are always displayed as normal.
– – Cars on the starting area are always dimmed, like cars in pit lane.
– – Cars on the optional path(s) always have a cyan background color across their row.
– The gained time rule can now deal with the Joker Lap, and should correctly maintain and track your yield status regardless of what path combination you take.
– Race Lines have been adjusted on some Rallycross configurations to improve accuracy.
– Excessive post-race penalty time is now converted to post-race lap penalties.

Lone Qualifying

– Fixed an issue where ghost effects and skids were showing up from other cars during these sessions.

Driver Swap

– iRating exchanges are now possible in scheduled driver-swap races. The Info tab on the Session screen will indicate whether or not iRating will be impacted by this particular team racing event. iRating exchanges in driver swap races are being enabled as of the deployment of 2018 Season 2 during the 13th week.

Hybrid Engines

– Hybrid system can no longer be deployed while pit speed limiter is active.
– Hybrid system can no longer continue to deploy after the battery state-of-charge has been drawn down to zero.

Controls

– The Sim should now make better estimates for controller calibration when initially starting up the Simulation.
– Joystick calibration routine has been adjusted to reduce the likelihood of a noisy joystick axis getting detected.
– Improved the ability to map a multiple button press trigger to a single control response.
– – For Example: Button A = Action 1 -and- Button A + Button B = Action 2
– Support for mapping actions to buttons that are permanently held down (for example a position switch that simulates pressing and holding a button), has been added.
– – When mapping button controls, iRacing would normally watch for the “button release” event before mapping that input to the action. But in this case a user can hit “Enter” when mapping the control to accept the held-button (or switch position) in its current location.

Feedback

– Markers have been added to the driving control interface elements to indicate if you are dragging your brake or clutch. Markers will light up if there is any input at all on a control.

Spotter

– A new switch has been added to the [SPCC] section of the “app.ini” file, called “carLowHiAtStart”
– – carLowHiAtStart=0 = Spotter “Car Low / High” calls are disabled for a short duration after the green. (Default functionality)
– – carLowHiAtStart=1 = Spotter “Car Low / High” calls are enabled as soon as you get the green.

Driver Animation

– Hand-over-hand steering animations have now been completed for all cars!
– – We have fully implemented driver hand animations for all iRacing vehicles.

Animated Pit Crew

– The pit crew members’ running routes have been adjusted slightly to minimize clipping through larger vehicles.
– The pit crew members with a war wagon should now appear correctly on loaded replays.
– Fixed an issue where the animated pit stop was not appearing correctly with team swaps.
– Fixed an issue where the level-of-detail distances for some pit crew members was causing them to lose their heads.
– Fixed an issue where the pit stop could break when driving in backwards.

Opponent Cars

– All opponent-controlled vehicles will now have their actual gear and RPMs displayed in their cockpits.

Crowds

– A new system has been created and implemented for crowds at all tracks!
– – The folks in the stands should now appear more realistic than before.
– – This system will function as follows depending on your Crowd Detail setting:
– – – OFF = No crowds
– – – LOW = The crowds display with front-faces only
– – – MEDIUM = The crowds are in full attendance
– – – HIGH = Additional 3D characters are added around the track

Rendering

– Fixed an issue where some tires were showing up as white-wall or chrome-wall.
– Fixed an issue where grass track edges on dirt tracks could look too dark at night.

Paint Shop

– Fixed an issue that could cause unpainted cars to corrupt the texture cache.

Replay

– Performance improvements have been made to the mechanism used to prepare the replay world for playback.
– – This change will be most noticeable when skipping around in a replay, getting out of the car in the Sim, and playing through a session change within a replay. The effect on the Skew (S) bar during these operations should now be greatly diminished.

Video Capture

– The video capture API has been updated.
– The file format, “.MP4” is now the default file format for the video capture system.

Telemetry

– The old telemetry session string will now clear when launching a new session via the iRacing Beta Interface.

Deployment is completely cut when the car speed exceeds a fixed percent of the expected maximum speed on the current straightaway (end-of-straight or EOS speeds).
– – There are two user modes: Automatic and Manual Trim.
– – – In Automatic mode, the system calculates and applies an offset to the % EOS speed cut parameter that attempts to balance harvested and deployed electrical energy. Per the description, this mode requires no intervention from the driver – you simply get in and drive.
– – – In Manual mode, the user specifies a Trim via the MFH knob (1 to 14), in 2% increments from -12% to +14%. Setting 7 applies a 0% trim. -ve offsets cut deployment at lower speeds, resulting in net energy savings while +ve offsets result in deployment cuts at higher speeds, draining the battery. Note that the base %EOS speed cut parameter and expected EOS speeds are generated using ref-line calculations that have been modified to handle hybrid power units (ref-line calcs are used for the driving line display and race control functions like applying track-cutting time penalties in real-time).
