    I notice at Palm Beach (not sure about elsewhere), that when cornering, the sky will abruptly update/change.

    Also, when there's a clear blue sky, there's a conspicuous banding or ripple effect (true at other tracks too).

    Leaving the garage-tent, the individual kiosks with their monitor screens disappear and reappear a few seconds later.

    Other than that the flags and changing skies create a pretty good effect there IMO.

    Can you please modify that ghastly red colour in various places e.g. track marshalls, garage objects, rumble strips; it looks like a child's colouring book. Or is it just my computer?

    Formula 2: There's something rather distracting and unconvincing about the tyre animations seen from the cockpit appearing to slow down at high speeds. I understand the idea, but it's not quite right yet. Not really a bug, just saying...

    The color of objects aren't going to be corrected until the gfx engine is more stabalized as to what color it makes colors look. :)

    For the first issue, do you mean the cloud animation is jumping?

    The F2 tire is placeholder, we got the rights to put Yokohama tires on them now.

    I`m not answering for Old Hat but I`ve seen the cloud/sky animation jumping...

    I`ve noticed it when cornering too and it`s kinda like it`s jumping from one type of selected weather to the next. You turn the corner and as you go round, the sky with a little cloud cover rapidly changes to a lot of cloud cover (or whatever weather you have selected obviously)

    Great news about the Yokohama tyres too. :)
