    F1 2016 Update.jpg
    Codemasters have deployed a new patch for the PC edition of the Formula One 2016 game, with several enhancements to the base game, several crash bug fixes and a nice Nvidia SLI performance improvement .

    As is unfortunately the norm when releasing updates for both console and PC versions of a game, the PC update has been released slightly sooner the both Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions, due to the lengthy approvals process employed by Microsoft and Sony respectively. Codemasters have confirmed the PlayStation 4 update has been Q&A approved and submitted to Sony, with the Xbox One update still under internal testing at the studio.

    Update 1.7 Patch Notes
    • Added the Master difficulty option to bridge the gap between Expert and Legend.
    • Added the Master difficulty option when starting a new Career and Championship Season. - New for v1.7.0
    • Changed the tyre rules so the tyre you start the race on counts as a mandatory for the race.
    • Falling too far behind penalties will no longer be given after being told to overtake the Safety Car.
    • Corrected a few translation issues.
    • Fixed a bug that could occasionally cause race sessions to never end.
    • Fixed a bug that could give players who rejoin a multiplayer session the wrong tyres. - New for v1.7.0
    • All cars now use the same gearbox when playing with Equal Performance. - New for v1.7.0
    • Nvidia Scalable Link Interface (SLI) performance improvements. - New for v1.7.0

    I've only registered 10 hours of time with this game as I keep trying it, hoping to like it and take it for what it is, and rage quit when the car / feedback does some arcade-style behaviour and throws me off the track. If only it had a proper simulation mode (that could run along side the mainstream mode it's in now) which provided decent tyre / general physics and force feedback that actually told you grip levels. Can't see a patch saving this one, so will do the annual hoping for their next attempt.

    So... it's getting incredibly hard with all these top sims battling for my time. Great problem to have obviously. ;)

    1.) Not tried the update yet as haven't had the time unfortunately.

    2.) I can understand the frustration for the console users as I used to be one. PC is so much quicker and glad I have it on that. Just wish that when these people released the games on Xbox or PS4 they also include a PC key too.

    3.) Think it's developing well and CM are engaging users for feedback and appear to be listening. Bugs are being sorted and the title is easily the best they've released for this series.
