    There's still quite a few things to work on with the lighting/gfx, (such as overly blue reflections in some places). We're aware of that and said as such in the roadmap post. Hopefully you can see things are moving in the right direction, and there was a lot of the work for this release on under the hood stuff that isn't immediately noticeable to the eye.

    Alex I commend you and the rest of the team for the progression of rF2 graphics from completely substandard (ISI) to adequate (early S397) to decent (2019 S397), to hopefully great (2020 S397). The shader overhaul for Le Mans is absolutely spectacular, the billboard vegetation in particular looks like actual trees rather than billboards. If your future gfx plans include decent PBR cockpit shaders so that cockpits don't just look like drab overlays on vibrant track visuals, that'd be awesome. Ditto for the austere skyboxes. Bit by bit the visual immersion of rF2 is catching up to the driving immersion.

    Thanks again for a great update.

    Are the new track being built using all the latest tech that Le Mans now has?

    Circuit d'Azur uses the same tech as LM yes.

    For the devs, the new GUI will be allow third-party apps like Assetto Corsa?. If the case is yes, in the near future will be any documentation or information to consider?

    It is a lot more than 2 seconds and it shows up everytime you go in and out of single player, it slows everything down dramatically. Never seen anything like this before in any other game, it is a rubbish idea. thankfully the devs are going to change it, I just hope soon!

    Does anyone know if Pukekohe & Hampton Downs will be released before Christmas?
    Teretonga, Highlands & Manfield are all excellent additions BTW...
    (they're in the Steam workshop now for those who are interested) :cool:

    Whoever made the new KartSim tracks needs a raise as they are sensational to drive and the visuals are top notch.

    The NZ tracks are a blast to drive, the full Monaco track is ace although I'm getting random FPS drops and I love the newly update Le Mans track which runs like a dream.

    Circuit d'Azure is pretty well done. Decent fps, better than I expected. Wide-body AI (<cough> GT3 <cough>) end up being a little too aggressive on the kerbs and putting a bit rubber down than usual before starting an AI race is a good idea.

    If I choose to nitpick, I'd say that some of the greens are just a little too intense, too chartreuse. Particularly the trees with needles around the pits.

    Some people complain bitterly about the S397 ads everywhere, but, geez, you'd really rather see other ads? After all, it's still advertising, still annoying.

    Not for me it’s a couple of seconds nothing more. I agree it looks a bit weird having a black / grey screen but not an issue for me.

    Performance on NoS got worse for some strange reason here...are there some changes with this update? Does anyone know, what has the most impact on frametimes especially?

    Covering the 'Cote d'Azur' and Taatus part of the update here. I had a heap of fun driving both. Great update - great work.
