Latest iRacing update gives different weather conditions to each driver in a session

YamesiRacing’s newest patch, rolled out today, was intended to address a select few number of members who were having problems with the sim crashing – believed to be related to auto-joining official ranked iRacing.com race sessions.

However, an unforeseen bug popped up that gave every driver in the session individual weather conditions. While one driver could have a track temperature of 110 degrees Fahrenheit and gain mammoth amounts of grip from near optimal conditions, another driver in the exact same session could be dealing with a very slick track temperature of 73 degrees Fahrenheit.11651050_931407934342_1940509637_nSome iRacing members tried to lightheartedly joke about this and compare the random performance advantage to real world equipment quality discrepancies, but the reality is that dynamic weather, a feature that only recently found its way into iRacing, has now been disabled while the dev team works towards a fix.

  2. I take it this might be why the ‘racing service’ was down last night, for some strange reason I wanted to give the Street Stock another go, despite iRacing’s recent ‘shenanigans’, and couldn’t, so I moved on.

    To quote Empty Box, “I wanna race what I wanna race I wanna race what I wanna race when I wanna race right now.”

  3. I think this is actually probably the worst new build I’ve seen in 2 1/2 years, it seems like everything new is buggy to the point of being broken and they’ve already done three patches.
