Automobilista V1.4.53 Hotfix Released


Reiza Studios has released a hotfix for their latest update to Automobilista, fixing some minor issues introduced with the second-to-last patch to the sim, as well as bringing more texture updates to the sim.

The download tips the scales at around 1.6GB (due to the updated textures), so it’s noticeably larger than other “Hotfix” updates. As mentioned before, the Version 1.5 update for Automobilista will be the LAST update for the sim. This is NOT that update: this is a hotfix for the last update. There will still be a last bit of content coming to the sim with the next update, so stay tuned for that.

What this hotfix does bring is updated textures for 11 tracks, minor AI tweaks, and minor fixes. For the full list, check out the changelog below.
