    Love the update, some great work all of the team have done on this :)
    but:
    - resetting 2 or more cars from the menu, do still not fix their meshes (model) they are full of holes (tires, bumpers, and so on)
    - And is it possible to add more cars to the ai recording you have done, or do you have to record all cars separatly?

    I remember the holes were a bug in an older version.

    The new map is very good but I have a few things to say about it.

    I like the look and feel of it and the framerate is surprisingly high. The roads are fun to drive around and the curves are reasonable. It resembles real Italy very well. The runway is good for top speed runs and aircraft and a good place to start driving. Serpentine roads are fun to drift around.

    However, when I am for example driving down the highway I notice something interesting in the scenery and I go "I want to drive offroad here and go there" but most of the time I am stopped by guardrails and have to use teleporting... Are they really necessary to have for the length of the road? When i want to go tumbling down a cliff, I can't because the road I am driving on has guardrails even though there is no immediate drop or danger to fall down the cliff in a real life situation. This does not happen everywhere, but even on plane terrain there are guardrails blocking me from going offroad and no gap in sight.

    This is good:

    This is not (in my opinion anyway):

    Here you have to somehow cross 2 guardrails if you want to go to the highway. No gaps(unless I'm blind). This is only a problem on flat land- all the mountain roads are awesome (except for the one picture I posted.) I understand this is a minor thing to complain about but it negatively affected my gameplay experience. Now, I don't know if Italy actually has guardrails placed around like this (they might do):
    upload_2018-12-20_22-29-12.png upload_2018-12-20_22-32-52.png

    but it is nonsensical to me to have guardrails where there is not:

    - An immediate or dangerous drop
    - A field
    - A guarded or a limited access area

    It is dissatisfying to be tumbling down this awesome road at max speed:

    upload_2018-12-20_22-14-55.png

    Only for the trip to end by crashing into a guardrail...

    upload_2018-12-20_22-18-17.png

    My suggestion is to add some gaps to these flat roads at sea level.

    Another issue I have is the framedrops or so-called hitches. I get them constantly even with the lowest possible graphics settings. This does not happen on any other map. The frames are usually 60 or higher but (especially in towns) my framerate is 30 or lower because of the constant fps drops to 1 or less fps. When I am stationary in a town, the fps is mostly 60. Probably because the game doesn't have to constantly load more stuff. I would look into optimizing the way the game loads assets so it doesn't impact the frames as much. (specs in signature)

    Overall a great map and it is super fun to drive the mountain roads. My complains may be minor and low priority but I thought to give my opinion anyway. I still like the map very much. Thank you for your work and dedication.

    Thanks for the report. In this specific case, that's one of the few unfinished areas of the map (we explained this in a previous blog post if you're interested), which is the reason the area has been temporarily closed to traffic with barriers :)

    Piccolina's front axles break when turning when maximum track width applied. Also Italy map's name in Turkish is incorrect:

    Other than these, the update is great (even though Piccolina's sound kind of bothers me), I had better performance with my laptop which it only had a RAM upgrade recently, well done making these.

    A small problem with camera controls (happened in previous versions aswell). If I have my keyboard set to Lithuanian when I start the game the numpad keys will be changing the camera modes instead of controlling the camera itself. Just changing the language to English while in-game doesn't help. I have to specifically close the game, make sure the language is set to English and then start the game once again to make sure that the camera works properly.

    Any idea how to fix this? Because I usually just forget to check which language I've set.

    Nice update! Thanks devs!

    New car doesn't have a separate radiator?.. It kinda bugs me to see "Coolant Efficiency" being bright red zeros :) Also, damage on the block does not counts up on overheating. Looks like the radiator and the oil cooler are one piece?

    Also, fun thing that the starter does on the new car when you've driven it a lot - revs up car to 5 RPMs according to the Engine Debug, and then to start you need to press throttle, kinda like on an actual old carburetor car. Still, if you won't press the throttle, it will crank the starter for infinity, even if your engine is unable to start.
    (Tested that in safe mode too btw)

    Nice to see that the update finally did not reset my UI settings! Yay! :)

    После установки этого обновления, перестали загружаться все карты игры! Скрин прикрепил, моды стоят, всего 6 штук. Что мне делать?

    Это обычно вызывается сломанными / устаревшими модами. Очистите кеш, затем запустите игру в безопасном режиме и посмотрите, поможет ли это.

    That is usually caused by broken/outdated mods. Clear cache then run the game in safe mode, and see if that helps.

    This update is great. The fan requested police Bolide was an amassing surprise and the new Autobello is great. Italy has no problems with lag (outside of being above the map but my computer is crap ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ) and it feels believable. I also appreciate the new racing skins for the Sunburst, SBR4 and Bolide. Can't wait to see what's next.

    Ok so I normally dont post, but I've done a uninstall and a reinstall of the game, deleted all of my mods, and cleared cake numerous times. All I get is the floating camera. I've just uninstalled for the second time and I am letting the game re install. Hopefully I can get it to work. What else can I do if these options dont work?

    I don't get where people say performance is better. For me it's still the same.

    I did notice that, with no mods, vehicles seem to load faster than they did before, at least on Grid Map.

    The freezing is still occurring though, which I've been dealing with for about 10 months now, and none of the updates since February has fixed it. When will that freezing finally be resolved?

    Like usual, on Grid Map the freezing isn't bad, until you load in a bigger vehicle like the Wentward. For a second I was about to celebrate the freezing's absence, but good thing I didn't and waited until after I loaded in the Wentward.

    The freezing was especially bad on Italy, which took more than 20 minutes to fully load in. The devs weren't kidding when they said it would take a long time to load in. Because of how hideous the freezing was, I couldn't leave the runway.

    The new content is great. The Piccolina is really nice, as I expected it would be. But, I'm still holding out for the day the devs finally fixes that freezing. I basically can't play BeamNG because of it.
