    Based on the original thread format by @Johnnypenso

    For each update released, there lies the potential for changes undocumented in the initial patch notes. Please report any Undocumented changes you find in the current update and I'll update the OP as much as possible to reflect those changes found.

    1. It is encouraged that you make an effort in verifying these changes as much as possible.
    2. If you need help from the community to verify something, don't be afraid to ask.
    3. It is strongly advised that you be as specific and detailed as possible with the information including a brief description of the bug or improvement before it was fixed/changed (if applicable) and how. If English is not your first language that's ok, just do it to the best of your ability.

    THIS IS NOT A DISCUSSION THREAD ABOUT THE PROS AND CONS OF THE UPDATE or anything else other than undocumented changes in the update. Keep those strictly to the appropriate threads:

    After loading up the new update the main menu screen had a cool showcase of all the new cars driving on a little tough course. Very cool! Also man I would love to get a track like that.

    Liveries now load up while offline. It didn't do this before for me at least.

    EDIT: I mean they are used on the cars and suits, not just reverted to the original PD designs.

    Grass has now been added to all blue moon variants before it was just a flat texture.
    Shadow quality was lowered in all blue moon bay variations HEAVILY.
    EDIT: I will edit the main page tomorrow.

    Is it me or are the engine sounds lower than before? Wearing earphones and it's definitely not as loud. Sound settings cranked to max.

    Apparently they put persistent debris, present only in monza for now, even in the variants of blue moon bay ..
    Can someone check if they are also present in the other tracks?

    Completing Monza on the Circuit Experience with all golds gives you a prize car once again. So basically everyone has to achieve 100% again.

    There seems to be a big increase in gravel particles when driving off-road, and the particles keep on falling off the wheels for a while.

    Not a undocumented change, but noticed one of the tab links in the original post is missing so here's this for you to use:

    Thread Icons (News Section).png

    If you could just slot that under "Bug/Glitches", you're all set :tup:

    I'll be able to check myself later tonight but would be nice to know if the audio crackle some of us have noticed has been fixed.

    All track layouts are now behind the 'original' circuit. Not separately in track list.
    Hopefully this will change how online voting works. (First voted original circuit and then possible layouts, different layouts shouldn't affect voting)

    Yes now it's 1 icon per track and selecting this leads to the different layouts. Well done.

    BUG: Effect sounds that play on Circuit Experience when you get a sector reward are now extremely loud. I don't know if this is new as of this update, but I went in there to do the new Monza circuit and it definitely woke me up.

    What looks like the same tire particles we see appear on the track on Monza are now seen on the new Blue Moon layout as well. Not sure if any other tracks also get them.

    Does anybody know if this is only a visual thing, or does it effect handling aswell.
    I haven't noticed anything so far.

    In the livery editor the wheel paint option has been moved to the wheels section (from it's usual place in the paint section). That's not fully explained in the documented changes.

    Additionally, after selecting a wheel paint, it will now stay on when selecting new wheels, allowing you to "sample" other wheel options in your preferred color. (It used to be that the colors would revert back to the stock options when browsing other wheels.)

    I noticed a lot of marbles (rubber) on the slow corners of the track at blue moon . Don't know if this is new.

    So far I think it's visual only. Maaaaybe there's a slight effect on grip, but that might just be placebo effect. The marbles do accumulate throughout the race though.

    Shame too, I was hoping PD finally added a dynamic track feature a la iRacing.

    I’ve just noticed on Big Willow there are stones thrown up from other cars when they go off rather than just dust.
    Using external view I was able to wheel spin and get them to pile up on the track, but they disappear as soon as you move
