Build Release Notes: 02-16-2012

Miscellaneous
– Fixed a bug that crashes the sim when using pitch sensitive headlights.
– Add in new app.ini [View] cockpitLookAngle=65 to allow users to lower the look left/right angle while driving.
Spotter
– Check to see if a car could pass on the left/right before telling them to go left/right.
– Don’t call ‘car left’ unless car is more than 3 meters left or right of race line. Was set to 1 meter before.

Telemetry
– Fix bug that stopped car class speed from being logged to telemetry.
– Log weather info to session string at start of race.
– Fix bug in telemetry warning lights.
– Expose fuel density to telemetry, so users can properly convert from liters to kg.
Drafting
– We have improved how drafting affects engine cooling. Now the radiator gets better airflow in general draft pack traffic if you aren’t sealing the nose of your car against the bumper of the car in front of you.
– There is no longer any benefit from trying to ghost along inside another car to gain an extra strong draft effect. In fact, it is now slower than being by yourself to try to do this.
