Prior to this, a significant update introduced additional adjustments, corrections, and gameplay enhancements. Since the release, players have regrettably been having a number of problems. Some of these problems will be fixed in the current iRacing version.
iRacing Update Patch Notes
February 2, 2023 iRacing Patch Notes
New Damage Model
A system-wide adjustment has been made for how bodies that connect and retain contact with each other over time behave. This change is designed to reduce the likelihood and severity of objects snagging on one another.
- Objects that retain contact with each other must be allowed a degree of lateral displacement, provided they can overcome the forces of friction provided by their surfaces, the angle of movement, and the force of the movement. Too much displacement can cause snagging. To avoid snagging, we have limited the amount of displacement allowed relative to the axis of contact.
- Physics properties for a variety of wall objects have been adjusted to prevent snagging and catching behaviors, as well as reduce the likelihood of a vehicle becoming stuck bisecting the wall. These adjustments should also create more uniform damage from impacts based on the wall type. The wall types affected include: concrete, chain link fences, ARMCO barriers, and tire walls.
