    With the release of RTR DLC, we have also seen the release of Assetto Corsa update 1.14. Or the other way around. However, even though DLCs and updates are often released together, they are not linked. Meaning that you will automatically benefit from the update even if you don't buy the DLC.
    Since the release of update 1.13, there were approximately 2 months gone by. This usually means that the changelog is quite consistent and aside from the fixes, we can see some nice new features added. This time is no exception. Some of personal favorites:
    - Added wind algorithm
    - Added Online time of day multiplier (x1 to x10)
    - Added track animated starting lights
    - Added Restrictor (BoP)

    ..but the biggest overall, must be the (very much) improved AI ! All hail Lord Kunos !

    And a video to demonstrate the new AI capabilities.



    The Toyota TS040 is driven by AI and it has been placed in the last position in order to show its capability to overtake slower cars at Barcelona circuit , where overtaking sometime is not an easy matter.
