The latest update for Automobilista 2, version 18.104.22.168, is now live, bringing a host of improvements to the game’s physics and AI, as well as updates to both new and old content. The update also introduces more tracks with support for the new flag LED panel feature.
Physics and AI Enhancements
The update includes a minor but significant adjustment to the tire modeling of both modern slicks and wet treads. This adjustment sharpens the feel of the tires that received the change without major repercussions on user setups or the overall performance of the cars.
On the AI front, adjustments have been made to AI lateral movement rates and the distances at which passing routines are triggered. A new function has also been enabled for AI in faster cars to “see” slower cars further ahead. These changes have resulted in more fluid line switches and reduced hesitation when passing for a position or dealing with lapped traffic. Further improvements in this area are already in the works.
Multiplayer Logs and Reports
In an effort to debug remaining issues, users experiencing significant reliability problems in multiplayer mode are now encouraged to post their session log files in the forum.
New Bundle Announcement
The AMS2 + Season Pass 2020-2022 Bundle has been deactivated from the Steam store page.

The Bundle will be updated as new DLC releases are made, providing a single-click option for new users to acquire all existing AMS2 items without duplicating DLC purchases.
