Mit der ersten größeren Aktualisierung wird unter anderem ein Problem behoben das dazu führte, dass das Wetter in den offiziellen Serien immer gleich war.

Mit dem Update sind auch grafische Verbesserungen verbunden die dafür sorgen, dass sich die Rücklichter eines Fahrzeugs im Regen nun besser wahrnehmen lassen und der Simucube 360 Hz-Modus ist ebenfalls verfügbar. Wie das Änderungsprotokoll zeigt, gibt es noch eine Reihe weiterer Überarbeitungen die sowohl das Tempest-Wettersystem als auch die Simulation und verschiedene Fahrzeuge und Strecken betreffen.

Nach offiziellen Angaben ist sich das iRacing-Team einiger größerer Probleme der 2024 Season 2 bewusst, zum Beispiel, dass einige VR-Benutzer sich nicht mit dem Simulator verbinden können. An die von aktuell mit dem Build bestehenden Einschränkungen betroffenen iRacer richtet man die Botschaft, dass man hofft mit weiteren Updates demnächst Lösungen für die Probleme liefern zu können.

Nach iRacing-Angaben konnte man erstmals die Zahl von über 250 Tausend aktiven Nutzern übertreffen, was einen neuen Meilenstein für die Online-Rennsimulation darstellt.

"Das neue Wettersystem von iRacing ist eine der größten Innovationen in der Geschichte nicht nur unseres Produkts, sondern des Simracings und sogar des Gamings insgesamt", erklärt Tony Gardner, Präsident von iRacing. "Unser Team hat mehr als drei Jahre damit verbracht, ein völlig neues Wettersystem zu entwerfen und zu entwickeln, um unseren Nutzern die realistischste Simracing-Erfahrung zu bieten. Wir sind begeistert von der Resonanz unserer Community, die einen neuen Rekord an aktiven Nutzern aufgestellt hat, und wir können es kaum erwarten, die Entwicklung in zukünftigen Versionen fortzusetzen!"

2024 Season 2 Patch 1 Release Notes [2024.03.13.01]
iRacing Weather System
-Fixed an issue where all Official Series Sessions throughout the week were having the exact same weather progression whenever Forecasted Weather Mode was in use.
-- As a reminder, with the iRacing Weather System each Official Series utilizes a single weather forecast for each race week - this can be found in the Race Schedule. However, this is only a forecast, and the actual weather during the Session may shift as time progresses. This means you may see the progression of the actual in-Simulator weather differ between the 9:00 Session and the 11:00 Session. Each split that is launched has an identical weather progression (ie: All of the 9:00 Sessions will have identical weather).

-Fixed an issue where the maximized state of the application did not save correctly.

-Fixed an issue where the Simulator would fail to launch for users with a Windows account name that utilized Unicode characters.

AntiCheat Software
-Updated the script (.bat) file that can be used to repair the Epic EAC installation to cover additional circumstances.
-- If you continue to have unexpected issues with the AntiCheat Software, please contact Customer Support so we can provide you with a solution.

iRacing Weather System
-The lighting shader for rear rain lights has been updated.
-- This should allow rear rain lights to be seen more easily through aerospray effects.
-Improved Race Server processing for checking and updating the track surface wetness values.
-- Due to the popularity of the iRacing Weather System, this frequent process was bogging down our Race Servers when dozens of Sessions with rain were in progress. This change should alleviate some of the Race Server processing demand and keep their CPUs above water.
-Length and density of aerospray and tire puffs are now more heavily weighted by vehicle velocity.
-Windshield water effects have been updated.
-Improved the rendering of wetness on a variety of off-track non-porous surfaces, especially their reflectivity.
-Some rainfall effects have been updated to be more representative of the active falling rain rate.
-Raindrop translucency has been adjusted.
-Fixed an issue where rain effects were not appearing on windshields at very low levels of rainfall.
-Fixed an issue where rain was not showing up on windshields when Medium or Low shaders were in use.
-Fixed a Simulation crash issue that could occur whenever a user was required to reload rain effects.

-Fixed an issue where tire compounds would not appear correct after a driver change.

-For iRacing Macros, a new tire change pit stop macro has been added.
-- Type "#tc 1" in the chat window to select the first tire compound.
-Updated some Controls options text.
-Fixed an issue with the new clutch launch control.
-- This system now properly resets after the end of a launch, rather than remaining active for 5 seconds. Also, a new switch to change the mode from a "press-and-release to launch" to a "press-and-hold to launch" has been added to the "app.ini" file; This is named [Force Feedback] clutchLaunchMode=0.

-Some Tempest-related telemetry values have been updated.
-- Removed irsdk_WeatherDynamics and irsdk_weatherVersion enum defines.
-- Removed "WeatherType" and "WeatherVersion" variables, these are already encapsulated in the session string WeekendInfo:TrackWeatherType:
---- That can be set to one of: "Classic Specified / Dynamic Sky" or "Classic Generated / Dynamic Sky" or "Classic Specified / Static Sky" or "Classic Generated / Static Sky" or "Realistic" or "Static" or "Timeline" or "Unknown"
-- Added irsdk_TrackWetness enum and attached it to the live variable "TrackWetness", this gives you an estimate of overall track wetness.
-- Added "WeatherDeclaredWet" telemetry variable, this is set to true when the marshal allows use of rain tires.
