Automobilista Motorsports is back on Steam with new update

Kevin Dooley On April 13, 2016

Two weeks ago PC racing sim Automobilista Motorsports Simulator was bizarrely taken down from Steam due to a copyright infringement claim.

I'm happy to state that Automobilista is now back on Steam and Reiza Studios have even managed to squeeze in a cheeky new update for the successor to the much loved Game Stock Car Extreme.

Reiza Studios have commented on the recent copyright infringement claim:
 

As previously reported, Valve & Reiza had received a DMCA notice for Automobilista, which resulted in the game being taken down from Steam for a couple of weeks according to the regulated standard procedure. The matter was discussed and clarified with the complaining party who withdrew the complaint, shortly before it was due to elapse.

We have in any case elected to modify several of the fictional cars in the game to feature different designs, and will continue to update them as a preventive measure to avoid similar confusion about whether part of the content in the game presented & branded as fictional / unofficial is indeed so. Many of these changes have already been introduced in the latest v0.8.9 update.


Details on the small 0.8.9r update can be seen below.

Build v0.8.9r Changelog:

Added new controller / FFB recovery mechanism in attempt to rectify occasional loss of functionality in between sessions 

Added extra information & reprofiled dashboard displays to better represent real counterparts (for Lancer Cup, Marcas, F-Extreme, Metalmoro MR18 - remaining cars to be updated in the following update) 

Repainted skins for several fictional series 

Goiania: Updated AI 

Marcas: Updated external sounds
