    That makes three rainy tracks now (four if you count Tokyo Expressway Central and East as separate courses). A Rainmasters GT League event seems like a possibility when the next patch drops now...

    And we’ll have to wait for Spa (with Wet Weather) for another two months. You know the new schedule.

    This!!!!!

    Hope Spa has been delayed this long in order to release it to us with rain already included :) Still can't believe we are finally getting Spa!!! Can't wait..

    I can see Nordschleife happening but I don't feel overly confident about Bathurst though.

    I would love that but I don't see that happening unfortunately. The circuit needs a rebuild as the modelling is outdated, it is fundamentally the model from GT5/6 bar a few updates, and I feel PD won't put resources into the environmental and asset lighting only to scrap it for the required rebuild.

    I think that is the case. Finally getting Spa-Francorchamps will be amazing and I cannot wait to turn my first laps there in all weather conditions in my TS050 Hybrid.

    Interlagos also needs wet weather, should also be a priority if you ask me, but I'm glad to see that Spa with come with the wet weather option already...Now we only need to know WHEN it will come.

    Considering that it looked like Spa was mostly finished at the New York world tour back in August, barring a few details and dynamics; I assume they've had plenty of time to sort the model out by now and the wet weather variant seems to be added almost as a 'sorry' present for taking so long. Hopefully it will be coming this update to put the 'Spa-rtans' at ease :lol:

    I don't think that's the case. If you compare, the road's completely different and a lot smoother as it is now in real life, compared to GT6, and the barrier placement, scenery and kerbs are quite different compared to the previous iteration as well.

    Yes that is so cool. I wasn’t expecting rain at Spa so soon. I seen several people mention it might come or hope it comes. Well now we know. Thanks PD. Rain on this circuit is more exciting than the other one’s. :bowdown:

    I'm guessing we'll get this in November's update, and new track in December's update that will be shown at the Monaco event.

    Yep, we desperately need "truly dark" conditions for all tracks. It's quite silly that most tracks only go to twilight/sunset/dusk, not to night. With nighttime we could make heat race-based 24h races.

    Funny, I don't care about rain or night at all. But I would LOVE to have a dense fog option for every track. So dense, visibility is less than 50m. Now THAT would be fun.

    Do we necessarily know that there'll be a new track at Monaco? Where'd it indicate that?

    We don’t, but it wouldn’t be a surprise that if there was a new track to come, which is possible and even likely, they’d show it at least partially at Monaco.

    Still waiting for the night period and visual improvements at Le Mans (La Sarthe). For me, the circuit was hurriedly launched, easily losing to the IRacing and rFactor2 versions; but the rain would be very welcome too..

    Nah only a guess, but it’s the last event to tease anything new, and GTplanet/Jordan did say at the August event they had heard PD was going to show a new-to-series circuit track before plans changed at the last minute to introduce Spa.

    https://www.gtplanet.net/spa-francorchamps-gt-sport-soon/

    “This both tallies with and contradicts some information we already had. There is an unknown track in the schedule for this weekend’s World Tour event, which is usually a solid indicator of a circuit that is waiting its grand debut. GTPlanet is on the ground at the event, and the rumors there were of a real world circuit coming to the game, but one that would be brand new to the series.”​

    Wow. Having weather day 1 on Spa is worth the wait.

    It would be nice to see a night version of Spa if it arrives

    Imagine if Polyphony updated La Sarthe to include night time. A championship in the dark - Bathurst, Spa, La Sarthe and the Nurburgring

    The wet roads at Spa need to be more reflective given it's heavy rain. I hope they don't rush it, it looks like they need more development time and polishing up, as it currently has weirdly placed random patches of reflective puddles while most of the track looks almost completely dry.

    Should be more reflective like the bottom pic, and Tokyo Expressway rain shows it's possible to do.

    Did anyone notice that in the world tour event with the wet version of spa, all the cars wipers were synchronised. It’s not a game breaker but it’s quite annoying once you’ve seen it.
