    Even though we already have Cote D'Azur in Gran Turismo 6, the graphical quality of the track has not been updated to the PlayStation 3 standards and it still has no variable weather nor does it have day/night transitions.

    I prefer the circuit as Monaco with license, but an update of Cote d´Azur would be welcome.

    Côte d'Azur needs to be scrapped and built from scratch. The version we have been using is massively out of date and is devoid of life and atmosphere. The static water is cringe-worthy.

    I understand, but this track is from 2000's....

    And it isn't Côté d'Azur, but it's Monte Carlo Track!

    ..........One thing I want most in any city-based track is "day/night transition". Lights in buildings coming on one by one; neon-lit streets coming alive; setting sun over a skyscrapper casting long shadow - just imagine the kind of atmosphere that will create.

    The pit road exit isn't correct. it just shoves you out into the middle of traffic. also, the downhill section before the hairpins, there is supposed to be a big bump, which PD shaved down to make it easier. I also hate the walls in the chicane. they make it very difficult to get a proper racing line thru. They need all of these fixed. There are probably other problems that I didn't note.

    I remember F1 in the 90s, the pit exit was just like in GT

    By shove you out in the middle of traffic, I mean there's not enough room for pit exit. normally, when drivers exit pit road, they hug the right side of the track, then pass to the right other the curbing in turn 1.

    GT6 has this area blocked off with barriers preventing drivers from exiting pits in a realistic and safe manner.

    yes, you're absolutely right, today it's like that, but if you look here at 0:13, you see the layout of the first corner is just like in GT:

    that may have been acceptable in the 90s, but I would much rather prefer it as it is currently laid out.
    At 0:33 you can see the absence of barriers in turn 1.
    also at 0:51, you can see the bump that PD shaved down in game. (In between the two crosswalks)

    They should make this a Premium track! (Updated with time/weather change.)

    I think an updated, licensed, top-notch version of this track will arise eventually from the partnership between GT6 and the FIA.
    And it had better have a full day-night cycle; the half-cycles at Ascari, Silverstone, Autumn Ring etc drive me nuts!

    Monaco was my all time favorite back in the Porsche Unleashed days. Hope newer Sport or 7 will feature any variation of this track and 935 Moby Dick:)
