Ah, I can see there is a changelog! Nice!

But, if I can say something, for the future, you should "sort" it, either via three categories (like "Fixes/Changes", "Removal", "Additions"), or either per "type" (like "Environment changes", "Cars changes", "Bikes changes", "Various changes"), and, list "things" at the suite properly, not in mess, I mean, like all the "Removed cars" together, the "Added cars" together, etc..

This way, it will be simpler for the people to read & understand it, then easily locate something they care about (as example, I guess most of the people search for "new cars", the "Added car X/Y"! Haha!).

Also simple to test in-live the changes, for example, I have the game opened & your changelog too, I go back to Windows via shortcut key to look at it, then go back to the game & test a few things I have just read (like new cars, reworked physics).

I took the freedom to convert your changelog to a "better format", below is a demo (a few things has been adjusted/simplified/fixed & I also sorted cars by alphabetic order, then added Opel Speedster Turbo):

Feel free to read it, control it then use/replace it on the official build (or, at least here if you do not want to update your archive with it).

Also, it will also be "nice" to only provide modified & new files on the update package, because it sounds more you provided a big part of your game "as it is" (like all the +1000 vehicles sounds, where I had to replace mine above due to the loss of new ones from Reymondox's & cie)...

I do not know how you work or if this is just the "speedup process" in this update, but you should have a separated TDU "working" folder, where you put each modified & added file in it, in the right paths properly builded, and the "removed ones" can properly remains in the users's folder if the game update is programmed to no longer use them, not a problem! Because right now it is a bit like a "butched" patch where you did not bothered to sort anything!

It will also be nice to use new submitted sounds (Reymondox's & others), but maybe it is more scheduled for the future update v2.0, while now you released that you have done "as it is", in such case I get it!

For some who want an alternative download link (direct), here (uptobox).

If Milli or other mods/admins do not want those links feel free to delete my post! Or, feel free to use those links as alternative ones in your main topic (I am not gonna remove the files anytime soon!).


What the hell are those 288 GTO so long gears?! Want to slipstream & follow a Chiron or what?

You also modified 812 SF, limiter is now at ~8k while it was good before (8.9k/9k). Besides, on inboard view the last red dot is missing (except when we downshift out of max RPM). Probably you adjusted this due to the tachymeter being red from 8k, but no!! That is the 488 Pista you must have "touched" (missing last red dot, inboard position too close to the steering wheel, hitting 9k RPM while it should be ~8k, like the 488 GTB which is correct), not the 812 SF, or, on the 812 SF, makes it more "slippery" (because it does not much compared to the F12 Berlinetta). And, why you did not reduced so long 7th gear of it?

But! I noticed you removed "turbo sound" on the Cayman GT4! Good!

I do not know what source you use as reference to adjust cars specifications, but using other cars games is not a good one! Use real life videos where we can see the tachymeter & odometers well, or, some good reference websites (like zeperf.com, accelerationtimes, etc.).

i cant download last 1.21 patch cuz connecting to peers

🤔 I also had this issue initially. After getting VPN, though, it's fine now. Some ISPs throttle or outright stop you from torrenting stuff. Maybe that's why?

Will applying Hawaiian Bliss v4.0 mod on top of v1.21 ruin the fixes of v.1.21?
Or maybe I should apply HB on top of v1.0 and then apply the v1.21 update?
Or is HB mod obsolete in case of v1.21 and should not be used?

I don't know, i don't use Hawaiian Bliss, as Platinum has it's own weather system.

If you want to try Platinum weather, install is last.  Or if you prefer Bliss, install that last (or carefully select just a few files from Bliss to place over Platinum).   It is recommended to keep backups of your files in case you make a mistake or want to revert.

A little help here. I was playing that one race which goes through the entire map,, but as soon as I start the race the cars start to glitch out of the map repeatedly, like the attached pic ( it's not mine) . I'm racing with a koenigsegg regera and the opponents are also type-A cars. tried reinstalling the game but didn't work.
