    Awesome update, really something to be excited about. Thank you Reiza!
    Regarding the weather, just out of curiosity, will there be some kind of weather forecast? Let's say I setup a Championship where the race is 60 minutes (or longer). Will I be able to see in a forecast if there may be rain coming within the race time?

    If there isn't, just check on OpenWeather (the source) or Windy (i like the detail of it) directly :p

    Ha, I always thought this was urban legend stuff, didn't realise it to be true.

    Wow. I work with APIs from time to time and listen to technical architects explain reasoning behind big scale solutions. I'm not an outright expert, but this seems like an optimistically light architecture (or lets say non-existant) for a popular end product. A proxy server with caching seems like the bare minimum. So current weather for Spa/other popular one doesn't get multiple billed API requests per hour. Or at the very least so the key doesn't get thrown around. But that's about as much as I can think of without knowing more about it :p.

    yes, i was pretty surprised to see it implemented like that. It smelt like a prototype that made it into production

    Amazing work by Reiza... I can't stop playing the new content in the latest beta, absolutely stunning in every way. I think (hope) that this is the update that will really launch AMS2 for mass adoption.

    Glad to hear that the devs that had COVID are recovered now -best wishes to all concerned.

    Suggestion for future release: As well as having random weather slots, how about having random times of day, random time acceleration, random tracks, random cars, random season etc? All optional of course, like the weather is.

    Some times the idea of just spinning the dice seems appealing and a good way for people to discover stuff they're not naturally drawn to.

    Yup pick any track, but make it Multiclass with non-GTE/DPi if those are selected so we can scare the shït out of slower drivers in our superior DLC cars xD
    (joking if course)

    Thank you for one more awesome update Reiza!!!

    This already happens but it is depended on the cloud coverage. Where are heavy rainy clouds it will rain more than areas where the clouds are lighter. Clouds are created randomly over the tracks though. (if I remember the mentioned video below correctly)

    Yorkie had a pretty explanatory video on how it worked in PC2: Episode 26: LiveTrack 3.0 & Weather Seeds | The Insider's Guide to Project CARS 2

    nope, since you then have a multiclass event, It will be about, who's first in his class.

    A weather forecast / radar like this would be fine (in next update or so...)
    Weather forecast for tomorrow, June 2nd at Nordschleife at 18pm.

    Agreed, I'd love to see some of the Premium tracks get more historical layouts: like Spa and Nurburgring getting 2001 versions with the narrowed Eau Rouge and old Castrol S respectively, as well as obviously the 60s/70s versions
    And I know it's a bit of a stretch, but with the historic Nordschleife planned could this mean we possibly get the Sudschleife too?

    I have a feeling that there's a limit of one whistle per dev update :D
