Automobilista – Version 1.3.5 Released, Adding Setup Sharing

Although the last update was only released at the beginning of this month, Reiza Studios has rolled out another major update for Automobilista today, taking the version number from 1.3.1 to 1.3.5.

The update

The stand-out feature of version 1.3.5 is that setups are now automatically attached to the lap time they were used for. This means that players can now easily download the setup for every lap time in the time stands, which can be extremely useful for understanding a car and seeing how others go about creating their personal setups.

Other neat changes are the re-organisation of SweetFX profiles, the relaxation of track-limit violation detection and the addition of tips, which are displayed in the menus (still WIP).

Of course, a lot more has been changed, improved and added. A full list of the changes can be found below.

Also, worth noting is that the Automobilista + Season Pass package, including the base game, all available DLC’s and even some still unannounced ones in the future, is discounted right now by 35%. So, if you were thinking of buying Automobilista, now may be a good time to do so.
