New AI improvements and bug fixes have been implemented in the latest update for Automobilista 2.

Hotfix v1.4.1.3 resolves a bug where the wrong AI could lead the Full Course Yellow group. This happens when the supposed leader of the group has pitted during full course yellow; this is now fixed.

The developers also added a new function to help minimize the AI’s chances of hitting outside walls in ovals. You could say that the AI won’t do anything stupid from now on and may likely even drive better during the race.

The latest update for Automobilista 2 implemented tire tread adjustments to certain cars as well, including Caterhams, F-Trainer, Superkart, GT Classics, and the Opala Old Stock. For those who don’t know, tire tread is rubber found on the circumference of a tire that makes direct contact with the road. The tire tread adjustments are most likely to give these cars better traction on the race track. 

Here are the other changes added in this patch:

GENERAL
  • Downforce oval/downforce variants will now load the main custom AI driver XML file (prevents the need to duplicate the main XML per variant)
