    I have a question which can be viewed as suggestion for the new HUD: Can the team consider a second garage with a dark background and a dark, not too-glossy floor?

    It would be an excellent setup to replace other ways of rendering cars and especially seeing how it would look ingame, and an excellent and consistent setup for taking screenshots or creating thumbnails.

    In the same vein, this could help make the car load in the garage <3 seconds even on weak PCs.

    Currently on my i5 2500K / SSD / 16 GB RAM, the garage takes a lot of time to charge: between 10 and 20 seconds.

    The next update is due before Christmas, apparently.
    Considering an updated HUD/UI will be part of the update, I sure
    hope S397 are not going to release this update 5 minutes before going
    on Christmas vacation! I'm sure there would be the possibility of
    issues arising from these updates, and it wouldn't be a great present if
    gamers have trouble over the break without support. I'm kind of hoping the updates
    are released at least 3-5 days prior to next weekend, which gives sufficient time to iron
    out anything that may need a quick fix...

    They did not say before Christmas, they said before end of year. And knowing software developers, it may mean 31.12.2017 23:59:59 :).

    Marcel stated in his talk & drive over on RD that the new UI would be some time in the new year and not part of the December update, which is due to bring in new shaders & rain, with a handful of track & car updates to support the shaders and rain. Unless any news has been released on Discord recently, this is what I believe still to be the case.

    IIRC, from what I understood from the talk and drive, the all new UI and HUD's will be released a couple of months into 2018 or more likely Q2 (This ETA is my personal guess). However the next build (within this month) will bring new features in the current HUD, namely the delta best and some of the trackmap most requested features.

    Nothing beyond delivering the switch from default DX9 to default DX11 before year end was announced in the November update. Everything else mentioned is vaguely time-lined beyond that point, so I don't know what you guys are hanging your hat on to expect anything from 397 before year end. The only thing mentioned in the Nov. update that has seen regular updates is the fantastic crew-chief plugin developed by an independent third party. I think next year we will see some movement from 397.
