I fail to understand how the fake video over the real one is seen as something we appreciate.
I would surely get more views if it was on a different post, or the order was inverted. This way it only archieves the opposite of what it intends to do.

Ok, that reassures me, no stand image, no improvement on this side.

I only remember the AI.

For the rest, I expect one hotfix per month for the events and that's it :confused:

The game is mature and great, but there is still a lot of things to improve, the circuits are lacking life, when the new Gran Turismo will be released, the ACC championship mode will be quickly forgotten, for the rest I will never buy a Playstation or Gran Turismo so I will only talk about the championship point of view.

Awesome stuff.
Personally I would like some stuff to be fixed or changed before any new content. But ok...
Btw, I`m wondering when we`ll get dynamic racing line in any conditions. Now its all static, no matter what. And in many places is off.
And a bit different weather, specially when rain come not-just-in-drops, but as a storm instantly and maybe only on some part of the track. So to be even more dynamic and unpredictable.

This is great news, ready to purchase this DLC.
In any other SIM an other Imola would not be something I would be looking forward to, but in ACC, the insane level of details and the sheer accuracy of the all the tracks, makes it an event in itself. Like one step closer to reality, and for me the added immersion is quite enjoyable.
Adding 2 latest evolution of the Mercedes and the Ferrari is the sherry on the sundae.

Really looking forward to the improved AI, Imola and the new cars. All good stuff.

I'm a bit concerned about the tire model. I like what we have right now, so hopefully it's a minor enhancement and nothing too major. Worried they might do what KartKraft recently did and just ruin a good thing.

Well the current tyre model could still be better. I remember a video from Ermin where he says that when you lose traction in ACC and the TC kicks in, you lose too much time, even if you correct it fast, while in rfactor2 the effect is more natural and organic, so the flow is not as disturbed as in ACC.

Another thing that needs huge improvement are high curbs(sausage). The experience in ACC is as if hitting a damn rock, it's ridiculous. I remember hitting the one at the exit of the second Monza chicane with my front right tyre, and all FOUR wheels lifted above ground, that was hilarious, obviously car went straight since I had no grip(literally).
