    I believe track limits have changed. Getting penalties for cutting rumble strips. Still learning them as i go. It seems you need 2 wheels in line with the tarmac on the track at all times. When my inner wheels are on the rumble strips, I get a penalty.

    The tires do feel different, more linear grip in corners?...but I have no conclusive evidence yet and this may just be placebo. But I did beat every time trial record of mine I tried.

    Also, I was driving Alsace at the dawn TOD and noticed the arrow signs on corners were reflective. Was this always the case?

    Seems to be a change to the garage thumbnails as there is a message saying Garage Thumnbails updated when I loaded up
    and now it's having to reload all the car picture thumbnails in my garage, anyone idea's about this?

    I also think I may have lost 3 cars but that could be the three corrupt DLC cars which have exclamation marks over
    them (Corvette, Nismo GT-R and Toyota FT-1) due to licences not being recognised.

    Was this at le mans by any chance? I was just doing laps and noticed that I was getting shortcut penalties where I felt I shouldn't, but I was qualifying for race b at Interlagos before that and it didn't seem to be a problem there...

    funny, just read this after my first reply. But yeah, the boundaries do seem a bit strict in some corners but not all of them. They might have to retrace the lines a bit lol

    From the update notice on the website but it seems this was added not that I am anywhere close to reaching the limit
    but I guess some have gone OTT on car buying?

    A maximum number of 2000 cars can now be placed in the "Garage"

    Could you possibly try a race with a grid start? See if it behaves differently (realistically) ?

    Do you mean accelerating from a stand still without TC?

    Precisely. As you probably know, the issue with the GTS tire model is that it had 2 "modes". One at very low speed which is very weird and behaves strangely, and one after passing 40-60km/h, where it finally begins behaving like a real tire. One of the oddities with the low-speed mode tire is that for instance standstill starts (with no TC) were very hard to achieve as the tires glitched and behave wholly unnatural. This behavior however was NOT present in the GTS World Tour championship, where a bunch of races were grid-start type (with no TC) and the cars behaved very natural, just as you'd see in something like Assetto Corsa. So there DEFINITELY was a different tire model in that championship.

    Crap. Definitely no new tire model (yet). From what I understood, the tire model also changed the way the slip behaved globally, to a more smooth grip-loss, also more in line with Assetto Corsa (for lack of a better realistic sim example). In the World Tour they also showcased a few new replay cameras. I assume these are missing as well?

    Big change , one that I have been bitching about since day 1
    I'm proud to say
    car grids are now completely random in custom / arcade race .
    Tested it with five tracks .
    Previously car grids were hand picked by polyphony .
    That meant every #1-2 car in GT 3 was a BMW and the third car was always a GTR etc.

    The best proof is Rally .
    If you picked starting #2 you always got the Audi Quatro as an opponent . If you picked #1 you got a mustang Gr.b

    I’m having the same problem.

    When registering for sport mode, after choosing primary locale, the offered secondary locales are ridiculously limited to around six or so in the whole state of New South Wales.

    I've just went to make a livery for my Fiat 500 & it seems that if you upload it & then you go to add more decals it takes way less time to upload it again! Seems like now it just adds the changes to the already uploaded livery & it doesn't upload it from the start! It saves a lot of time :)
