So first off, I'm happy to finally say this: The Ability to sell cars has been added, so no more questions on that. Anyhow, the usual: Read the first post containing the patch notes and post whatever changes you find not mentioned in said patch notes. As usual, any complaining about changes, bugs or glitches found, physics changes or new engine swaps are to be posted in these big buttons contained in the OP:

There appears to be a replay auto-dimming feature when many headlights are on the screen. It lessens when there are less cars on the screen at one time. Uploading the video.
Edit:


I ran a race at night and the screen doesn’t dim like it does in the day.

Not sure if this is new, but there's a "Storage Available" option in the settings that lets you see how much free space you have left and how it's split up between pics-replays-scapes.

Is it just me or do the reflections in the rearview mirror look less detailed than before? It looks like they were set to a lower quality.

Think this has more to do with the fact that headlight beam spread is not 180° so when you have a narrow angle from the cameras point of view, very little light from the headlights hits the camera and the camera will naturally adjust EV values.

The name of the engine model in the 1994 Nissan Silvia K's Type S (S14) changed to SR20DET-Silvia-S14-'94 (adding the year) because the 1.26 update added a 1996 S14 with the turbo engine.

It seems to me that collisions with the AI car physics has changed. Whereas before, they were like bricks and you could hardly move them, this morning on Road Atlanta I barely tapped one (it seemed) and it spun out and off the track. I haven't tested it enough to know for sure.
Is the AI only or does this change affect sport races as well?

Bug - There are sometimes no engine sound for the Cossie
Didn't try the Cossie yet, maybe it's dependent on the track. Did you notice that on Atlanta or other tracks?

My C7 was silent as well in my first race, see:


Motor sound was back in the replay though.

Edit: disregard the bad driving please, it was my first try on a new track with a car I don't usually drive. I also turned off driving line and braking zones for clearer footage, so I was basically flying blind

Edit2: corrected a "bad" word
