    Notes:

    - Smoothness should be improved by an average of 25-35% over v1.01 depending on detail settings; up to 45% in most previously heavy stutter areas.
    - Texture size reduction by 35% should also free up some VRAM by a fair amount, regardless of detail settings;
    - Existing 1.01 GP Layout has been replaced by what we now call GT Layout; which is the same layout with extra garage spots.

    Excellent! What a good time to come back and check the forums, right before jumping into a race at Silverstone. ;)

    Edit: Is there anything that can be done if I have a mod (RMT Megane) that relies on the old Silverstone 1.01? Do I need to have them both installed? I hope there's a better way.

    The modder could update it, or, you could keep them both in packages, and:
    Uninstall 1.14
    Install 1.01
    Install RMT
    Then to go back:
    Uninstall RMT
    Uninstall 1.01
    Install 1.14

    Thanks, great update.

    + 20 FPS (constant 75 - 80, except 55 at start, 16 AI in front of me). All really smooth.
    New surface is a blast. Had great fun with the G4.

    Good work ISI!

    One small thing, when you go to select the track, all 3 versions are available but it says Silverstone 1.01,
    maybe this may cause some confusion amongst some players looking for the 1.14 version in servers online etc.

    Not sure, just thought I,d let you know.

    thanks again, track looks great.

    I don't have any mirrors yet, I can't. This is exactly how it normally is held.

    As FatCity mentioned, mine is also the same since currently I have both versions installed. In the track list it only shows 1 Silverstone (1.01) but there are 3 layouts, including GT which I believe is the new version. Is it OK to keep it this way or am I still playing on 1.01 even if I select the GT layout? Thanks.
