Are you guys both keyboard players or is this just "for science"?
I have a wheel too but I mostly prefer keyboard for convenience reasons.
So, after quite a bit of testing, I am sticking with speed sensitivity 85 and damping 95, lock 14 as optimum settings.
Some cars will be too unresponsive and others will still be twitchy but that´s the way the game is at the moment. Lock 14 an AMS2 is indeed more than lock 8 in RRE but I am still not convinced that 8 is a real lock figure, it just seems too little.
I also tested rFactor 2, same results as in R3E and AMS2.
ACC was more complicated because it doesn't show you steering lock value, but there are other numbers you can use to calculated it - the turning radius was bigger. I don't know the reasons for that but I think it's ACC's fault because there was also a noticeable inconsistency between cars that should, according to numbers, have the same results.
Too much steering lock angle=car too unresponsive, too little steering lock angle=car too twitchy/hard to control
I doubt that's the reason...
I believe he means wheel turning radius - that would make sense as 240 degrees makes response much more direct than 720, for instance.
Regarding steering lock from the actual front wheels, I have done a lot of testing and would now say that in terms of lap times; 9 is the best for most RRE tracks and I am now settled at 15 or 16 in AMS2 with 95 speed sensitivity and 70 damping. I can do 1.25s at Cadwell in all the GT3s. More damping is equivalent to more turning radius on a wheel and then it is too hard to catch slides or go through chicane as the lock to lock speed is too slow. With closer to 100/100 sensitivity/damping, I can´t get into the 1.26s and the hairpin is a challenge.
Again YMMV depending on the car and that´s something Reiza really need to look into.
Yeah, I interpreted his words like that. Still it's not the case, cars with the same lock behave differently (I have an impression that a lot depends on where the engine is located, i.e. front engine cars are more twitchy on steering).
Not to mention that it's impossible to get "too little steering lock" in AMS2...

Automobilista 2 V220.127.116.11 RELEASED!
First to release a 2022 gen F1 clone.
Moders on AC were first but if you mean from official Games developers then you are right
Yup, official release is what I meant. The car is free, as is the 2022 Stock Car and new airport track.
No doubt there will be a 2022 liveries and driver skills mod incoming soon.
The update is now out of beta status... And...its awesome, at least the formula gen2 car is just great. Only driven a few laps but i really like it so far.
I don´t know how much is placebo but the new stock cars seem very good to drive.
The new release candidate is well worth installing. GT4s and quite a few more cars now go round corners in smooth arcs rather than the snappy stuff of before. This for me is similar to the move from tyres 4 to 4.1 in RRE.
Been trying the latest official update and can confirm the Gt4s are now on a par or even better than those in RRE.
Still not a fan of the Gt3s or Aussie Supercars, which move all oer the place even on a straight - I think they need more work.
