    I'm sorry you took it that way, I was just asking to see where you're coming from.

    Has someone got all the PS4 update notes?

    I haven't seen a separate patch notes list so I'm thinking everything in the first post here minus the first section specific to PC. Hope that helps for now.

    Points to SMS for making weight transfer bit better and adjusting tires to feel more like rubber ones. :tup:
    AI instead on quick test needs heavily adjusted again for personal usage, it was fine on 91/74 at Bathurst on V8SC, but now AI is blind on those settings, earlier clipping point for awareness of other cars was on 75 aggressiveness, now I need again search where they open their eyes :eek:.

    AI in the rain certainly seems improved, particularly if they stick on slicks as they now tiptoe around the wettest parts on the track.

    They would probably stay on slicks until there's no driving line at all and the whole track is evenly wet. Because being AI they can stay on the "rail" of the driving line in those situations, right?

    The old 100% aggression setting is now ~50%.

    It's just another camera, but I think the Gopro cam is a nice addition.

    And just like in PC1 for open-wheel cars, it goes to the outside right.

    OK, so one race circuit doesn't make a summer but the Ligier Nissan is good for 1m34.7 laps at Daytona, whilst the Honda version is doing 1m35 laps, both of which are just under 2 seconds a lap quicker compared to Patch 3. By comparison, I'm doing 1m41 laps in some of the GTE cars, so that's a good difference in performance there.

    They're definitely all pushing over 500HP now which is nice to see. The gap now between the lowest HP LMP2 to highest (Honda Ligier) is only 15HP but the Honda is a full 100 pounds heavier so they're closer in power-to-weight ratios now.

    One thing I love is how taking close class racing to a track with longer straights makes it moot while take away their ability to stretch their legs and the whole game changes. Laguna Seca is great for this. I remember a GoPro commercial that was just 30 seconds onboard some open-wheeler at a track day and it went from out of the corkscrew to late brake overtaking some road cars in the last turn. Personally I always thought the move was a bit dangerous considering it's just a track day but that's neither here nor there. It gave me the inspiration to run Road C - GT3 - Track Day A - Formula C track day events.

    When the game first came out I just picked the Nissan for the Ligier and have stuck with it this whole time. I did test the Honda and to me it was a lot slower than the Nissan so I've never given it a second chance. The Judd I've never driven at all. I guess post patch I will have to retest and this time include all three to see what's changed.

    Just did a quick 15 lap GT3/GT4 race and couldn't be more impressed with some of the AI fixes. Lapped cars make a genuine effort to get out of the way of the faster cars now.

    Did you also delete your saves and recopy from them from the cloud? Only other thing I can think of. It really sucks some of you get the worse of this technology crap.

    What track and how many laps before GT4 became lap traffic?

    It was Laguna Seca and, maybe around 8 or 9 laps? Sorry, I wasn't really paying attention to the laps when the lapped traffic first appeared.

    Just an FYI, the 250 lap glitch is *still* not fixed in PS4. "Improved..." Not even close. Improving it would be the glitch not happening. As in. At all.

    Luckily I'm awake at 1am so I can just leave the ps4 on low power mode so it can update over night. Should be done in only 8 hours.

    A welcome surprise this update. Updated as soon as I got home this evening.
    Seems like they were quite busy. Lots of stuff got done. Cheers.

    I think they have finally fixed the difficulty between each race, I played 4 races and at 4 I did not have to change the difficulty.

    Did the graphics in this game improve at all since the beginning? I bought this game when it was released and the graphics on the PS4 Pro was so bad, I had to take the game back. I wasn't expecting the graphics to look anything close to GT Sport but man, it was really grainy. I am wondering if the graphics improve after this update because I might buy the game again. :lol:

    Update notes were available since update came out, under PS4 XMB menu, check update history, there's full list of changes.
