Release Notes for Feb 10, 2014

Account Recharging

– Moved the minimum member recharge and gift recharge iRacing dollars (not credits) to another member from $5 to $1 at member request. Gift Card minimum still at $5.

Hosted Sessions

– Bumped the maximum number of cars allowed for hosted sessions from 4 cars to 5 cars.

Garage

– Improved tire stability while in the garage.

Lucky Dog

– The spotter knows how to talk about the lucky dog now:
· The moment you get issued the lucky dog, the spotter will say “You are the Lucky Dog, get your lap back by passing the field on the outside.”
· The moment someone else gets issued the lucky dog, the spotter will say “Car N got the Lucky Dog, let them by on the outside.”
· When the lucky dog end-of-line is issued to you as you take the two-to-go, the spotter will say “Because you’re the Lucky Dog you will be held at the end of the longest line.”

– We now delay issuing the Lucky Dog end-of-line penalty until the LD driver takes the TWO TO GREEN start/finish crossing.

– Fix a bug that would cause the very last lucky dog candidate to not be included when sorting candidates into priority order, which meant that if that very last lap down driver was the one who was supposed to get the lucky dog, they wouldn’t!

– Fix a bug where scheduling hosted sessions with lucky dog cautions could end up having no cautions at all instead.
