For every update released, there is the potential for changes not listed 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, either through videos or images.
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 OFFICIAL CHANGES Only any changes not listed on the official site are discussed here
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:

Ok Folks, you know the drill: Post things you find not already listed under "Documented Changes" in OP. Keep things like glitches, physics changes or other extremely specific findings in the usual threads linked in the post above:

Now you may post.
 
I'm VERY curious as to what real car paint slots have been adjusted.. is there a way to find out which ones these might be?

The discrepancy with European events we noted in the last thread has been fixed; the European FR Challenge 550 events now allow cars from the Czech Republic to be entered, as all the other European events were updated to allow in 1.46.
It didn't really need to be fixed as, at least as far as I can tell after a short search, Skoda never produced a FR road car, or at least one in the last 50 years.

  • Czech Republic
  • Indonesia
  • Lebanon
  • Malaysia
  • Philippines (not a PSN country; because of TGR GT Cup Asia?)
  • Croatia
  • Mainland China
  • Switzerland
  • India

I haven't checked but maybe Giallo Genio from the Maserati MC20. Last time I tried applying it I noticed that it completely lacked the blue undertone of the real car and looked like a different paint color entirely.

Edit: Checked and no, it hasn't been fixed.

Can you no longer change the paint color in split screen? I used to go in there to quickly look through all available stock colors on a car, but now it just has a message after selecting the car and doesn't show the paint options.

I don't have a second controller to test if the paint selection comes after the second player makes their pick now.

Looking into it more, it seems that you can only change the color of the non-favorited cars which appear in the split screen list.

That's great!
 
New colour chips were added under Real Car colours for Audi, Chevrolet, Genesis and Lamborghini.

I bought them all up before thinking to record the colour names of the new ones. I already owned all of the Real Car colours which is how I noticed.

There were several for both Audi (which looked like 80s style colours) and Chevrolet (which looked like 60s/70s colours). Only one each for Genesis and Lambo. Those were the only ones I saw out of all of the manufacturers.

Next time they add new colours I'll be sure to make a note of the names! Doh.

I tried this too today, but according to this comment on reddit this has been removed for a couple months now (they mention update 1.42 from late January):
 
If you want to see all available colors for a non-Brand Central car that you own, you can save the original livery as a style, then view it in Showcase -> My Items. You will only see the colors / liveries, not their names. As far as I can tell, this has worked since day one.
 
So they fixed the one hand driving at last. Now driving with two hands on steering on manual transmission. Not sure though if it is addressed in this update or in a previous one. I just noticed it.
 
I noticed today that when you're searching for decals in the livery editor your most recent typed words now populate above so they can be selected. I know they recently added the "recent" tab, but still didn't have words auto-populate in the area above the keyboard in real-time.

A very welcome addition for someone whos always on the hunt for all types of decals!

It's still the same. The driver only starts driving with two hands right after you turn the steering wheel over 90 degrees, just as before.

Tangentially related, I'm pretty sure over the last few months (unsure when, but before 1.48) they also enabled you to search multiple words. Previously, they'd remove whitespaces, but now they stay, e.g. I searched for a decal with "my other car is" and it didn't turn into "myothercaris". Both ingame and on the website.

@PettyWingman You're absolutely right. The animation I am talking about seems to happen only on GT500 cars, new and old. Weird and sad

Edit: I just drove my RUF CTR3 spec for WTC 700 and the animation is correct. I don't know, seems inconsistent. Have to try other cars too.
