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:

- The fuel warning message will remain in the middle of your screen until you refill, even letting you know how much fuel you have left.

- Player connection icons have been added to Sport Mode.

- When choosing wheels in Livery Editor, it will now show ones that you own but cannot use on the selected car with them greyed out and reading "no entry".

- When using cockpit view, the movement of the driver's hands react much slower to steering input.

- Pit Lane Glitch has been fixed.

- Ordering of the grid has been altered to now be in order of qualifying times in Sport Mode.

- When using the colour picker in Livery Editor, it defaults to the color already on the decal, not whichever swatch you last had selected on the way to clicking the picker.

- Brand Logotypes now stay all together without grouping by first letter (A-E, F-O, P-Z).

1. Yellow Flag warnings now appear as an on screen message stating that overtaking is prohibited.



2. In lobby chat a list of current players appear at the bottom so you can call someone out specifically. It will appear in the chat something like this:

"@invertedevo you're the best"


3. The fuel warning message will remain in the middle of your screen until you refill. It's annoying but it does show you a numerical value of how much of a lap you have left in the tank. For example "Fuel low - 1.2 laps remaining until empty"

And I'm not sure if this is confirmed but I feel like the tire squeal is a bit different. When I play around with the brake balance I can hear the back tires very clearly, or the set of tires that are most under pressure. Maybe it's related to the surround sound. Or I'm just imagining things.

Just finished a daily race and there's a new screen and some new music in place:

The've killed the braking for me with the DS4.... no feeling at all...
I've noticed a change, more progressive near the upper end of the "travel". I personally found it better (no ABS).

Now for them to apply the same to the throttle, since it's like a switch in the last 20% or so.

I use the sticks, by the way, not the triggers. I've been annoyed by the throttle / brake progression for a while, i.e. since GT5, and I've been thinking about it just as long, so I'd always presumed the profiles were designed with the triggers in mind. I'd hoped, then, for an option, or for the game to use different profiles for the sticks and the triggers separately. Perhaps in this update they just used a different profile on the brake only and applied it to the stick and trigger equally.

Offt. Cool pic of Cervert!

Ont. I really hope they change it back or maybe a little in between.. i'm just not confident anymore and it kills me...
And that 20% what you are talking about makes it really hard to drive Gr.3 cars with the triggers indeed.. why do they have this issue for so long?

Other games have made these changes without much trouble. Overwatch has like 2-3 different 'sensitivity' schemes/modes which they developed after the players requested it. Normal, linear and one more I can't remember. (Only for the sticks, though. Not the triggers).
So it's not like it can't be done, PD!

I know Battlefield 1 has options to change the L2/R2 deadzones AND sensitivity. That's what you guys need.

Did someone mention that there is no passing under the yellow flag now?

It's kind of a stupid implementation because it includes passing the person who caused the yellow flag even though they are stopped on the track. I just got a 5 second penalty for passing a car that was facing the wrong way.

Can somebody tell me if accelerating from standstill or low speeds has been improved? There was way too much whellspin before.
I just tested accelerating with various cars and i am pretty happy :)

On Sports hard wether the MX-5 nor the GT86 will hit the rev limiter constantly during wheelspin when accelerating from stand still - this is also more or less the case witch comfort soft tires!
As it wasnt possible to launch the GT86 before without constant wheelspin its great to see that car get forward without loosing traction.

Tested the camaro, mustang, corvette and other more powerfull cars too, while they still will hit the rev limiter very fast its more easy to adjust the throttle and launch those cars without much traction loss and loosing too much speed. I guess those type of cars will be hard too launch in real life too (with hard semi slicks) but i think in real life there woukd still be more possibility to launch with more traction.

All in all a great improvement 👍
