Renato Simioni wrote:The Steam store page for Automobilista has been taken down due to a copyright infringement claim which had been submitted to Valve.
As is known, Automobilista packages a variety of officially licensed cars & brands alongside fictionalized, originally created content. The claim in question does not make any specific reference to content present in Automobilista supposedly in infringement of the party´s copyright - until it does, our belief is that it has no merit.
We have already taken the appropriate measures to resolve the issue ASAP, but in accordance to Valve´s policy, the process may take a few days to be completed.
In the meantime time we will continue to progress with the development of Automobilista, and intend to release another Early Access update shortly. The game is available for purchase as part of our Membership packages from our forum store.
Please understand that until the matter is fully resolved, we may not be able to discuss it.

I backed PCars pretty early on, putting in a humble 45 euros for a copy of a finished game I'd get a few years later. The result when it came outis pretty embarrassing, and all the time I was talking to my own friends on this site about the numerous glitches and issues they were running into in pCars, all the crashes, the performance problems on AMD cards... And here I was getting a tiny bit of the money as it sold. The more it sold, the more I got. I still don't feel clean from it!
But during that mess, you gave us something important. If we were having problems with the finished game, what would we do? Post in the help & support forums of theirs? Wait for patches and run through various troubleshooting methods, all while our 2 weeks and 2 hours steam refund window ticked away? What difference does that make? Then you showed up, you found a way to speak louder than anyone else, and then did it on our behalf, becoming our collective voice. Did you cause trouble in the process? Yes, definitely. But you got noticed, and that trouble surely helped. So well that even the head of the development studio himself responded to this silly little weekend project of yours, and we got to see a side of SMS we possibly never would have had you not been prodding at those sensitive spots. As far as I'm concerned, you did something very important at that time. No one else was going to bring Ian Bell's public outbursts to everyone's attentions like you did. (It probably even had that 'click-bait' effect, even if that wasn't your intention... Though, lays the foundation for a reputation I suppose)
This guy has a mental problem, at first it was annoying spamming all forums from all the developers with all his nonsens, but now is just plain stupid. Someone ban him already.

Yeah, a few FReiza liveries, and a whole bunch of FV10 and FExtreme have been changed. I quite like some of the new ones, though... But I guess this confirms what everyone's been speculating for a while.
Below is the main changelog for the latest update:
- Added new alternative sky/cloud texture sets + function to randomly load different sets in each session
- Tweaked tire scrub / skid sound logic to generally improve audio feedback
- Adjusted tire volume slider to go up to 200%
- Partially disabled advanced tranny code for sequential boxes while some remaining bugs are ironed out
- Reprofiled dashboard displays for Supertrucks & karts
- Repainted skins for F-Reiza
- Updated Mini & Camaro championship track calendar
- F-V10: Added Soft tire compound and made it the default option
- F-V12: Removed duplicated teams from v0.8.9
- F3: Corrected fuel consumption
- Supertruck: Removed redundant engine boost effects which were mistakenly left on
- MIT Lancer: Removed launch control functionality which were mistakenly left on
Just a note to inform that as of next week prices for the membership packages will be updated to US$ 54,99 for Full & US$ 24,99 for Upgrade.
