Game: Automobilista Motorsports Simulator 2

Platform: PC

Publisher: Reiza Studios

Release Date: December 2019

Reiza Studios has released some new videos and screenshots as part of their monthly developer diary update for Automobilista 2 – expected to release sometime in December 2019.

Using the Madness engine (developed by Slightly Mad Studios (Project CARS 2)), Reiza Studios has improved their car audio by increasing tick rates compared to the Automobilista 1 audio engine. This results in a higher fidelity audio in-game and a noticeably smoother audio curve as seen in the new vs old comparison below.

Reiza Studios has shared a work in progress video highlighting audio improvements made to three high-revving cars seen in the video below.

Regards to physics, as both physics and controller tick rates were already high, it left less room for improvement. Still, a small bump has been made which should allow for greater control. To demonstrate the higher tick rate, Reiza has released another work in progress video showing a very high-powered car on slick tyres in wet conditions below.

The drivetrain model has also seen improvements specifically for cars with manual transmission (Reiza assures us that players can´t get away abusing their gearbox speed shifting or skipping gears without clutching or rev-matching).

The new drivetrain model will eventually include damage to gears and gearbox from recurring miss-shifts. You can see the new drivetrain model in action in the work in progress video below.

All of the latest Automobilista 2 images shared by Reiza Studios can be seen in the gallery below.
