    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 OFFICIAL CHANGES Only any changes not listed on the official site are disgusted 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:

    I believe some of the colors have changed on the mileage/credits rewards screen after finishing a race.

    Transmission name change has been covered in the official patch notes. As for the time gaps, they were already like that before.

    Can anyone check if you can chose tyre wear above x9 in custom race now? And can you apply FIA track limits to online lobby?

    Okay. Now, Livery editor has "Flip Horizontally and Duplicate" as an option. Unless I missed that one.

    Actually, "Flip Horizontally and Duplicate" is a new and completely different button from "Flip Horizontally" and "Duplicate"

    Ahh, my bad, didn't notice the quotation marks and thought he was talking about the seperate buttons.

    This is a small, yet welcome addition! :)

    There is now a "flip horizontally and duplicate" option for decals, which will probably be a huge help to using custom decals with lettering.

    I only tried the "flip horizontally and duplicate" option once (so maybe I'm just wrong), but it didn't seem to do the flip horizontally part. :lol: Might try it again in a few hours unless somebody else does it.

    Another thing that I've noticed, although this is more of a personal issue. I switched consoles quite frequently, which apparently caused some save game issues (I once almost had all of my Daily Mileage spins again - of course this also meant losing the cars I already won). One of those bugs was related to the achievements, the one for "Play Time" was stuck on 98 hours. I know this because I'm now well above that number on the "Time Driven" achievement (something around 180 at the moment? The site unfortunately doesn't show the exact number). While it hasn't counted the hours up until now, it seems to have begun counting again with this update. Quite the pleasant surprise when I saw that I finally received the Level 3 award for "Play Time". :)
    One way to write it down in the OP could be: "- Bugged achievements that didn't function properly due to save game issues (e. g. "Play Time") are now fixed."

    Regarding the fuel topping up in "timed" enduros, does it extend to single player mode too? I did a 40 minute race last night and noticed they were doing the old 1 litre a time thing.... :confused: :lol:

    I hope the functionality is actually Flip Horizontal and Duplicate on Reverse.

    The year of Porsche 911 GT3 (997) had been changed from 2008 to 2009.

    And the short name of Mini-Cooper 'S' '65 is different... in Japanese version.

    You're able to zoom I much tighter in the livery editor (which shows up bad pixelated decals nicely)... still can't get really low to the ground though... nice addition.
