Has anyone else noticed on the xbox1 that sometimes it appears as if there is broken glass on the circuit? It has happened randomly with different weather conditions. When it happens its really noticeable and you see it around the kerbs as well.

i've noticed that, not sure its meant to be glass though, more like sun glistens on the track maybe?

Can you guys provide a screenshot? That would be very helpful to understand what's going on.

I think it's the rubber 'marbles' around the outside of the track. In certain lighting conditions it can look shiny.

could be that, do see rubber marbles flick up from time to time which is pretty cool.

I had that earlier, you can see it off the racing line, I mainly saw it when travelling at low speed, just out of a corner. Thought it was poor graphics at first, but as I concentrated on it, looks like glass. Can't remember what track it was unfortunately.

I've also seen marbles off the racing line too - aswell as big stones/rocks being flicked up by the car infront.

Playing xbox one. Helmet cam.

It's leaves from trees when you have it cloudy if I'm not mistaken.

These are Rubber Marbles...

And yes i agree, they are perhaps a bit to reflective...

Looks just like Shift 2's marbles. I always thought it was a mixture of rocks (from gravel traps) and marbles.

Just paused it on brands hatch and went into photo mode and its not marbles. Marbles are very distinctly 3d objects that can been seen on track. When you move the camera around on the sparkling spots they just look like dark oil spots on the pavement but they sparkle and shine from certain angles. If the effect was intentional I get it but its just way over done and looks like glitter.

Brands hatch has leaves on the track in certain areas too.
The shiny marbles look like compounds of rubber on the track, I stopped next to them and had a proper look

Looks like Carbon Fiber pieces that may have been broken off during contact, to me.

Snetterton is the worst offender by a mile for the shiny marbles.It looks like glass all over the track.

Its definately not rubber ive noticed it the worse at (i think) Oulton Park, it twinkles like when theres Ice on the roads early in a morning and the street lights are reflecting from it. Anyone residing in the uk will know what I mean

Yeah from what I've seen it will be shiny sometimes and rubber looking the next. That picture perfectly represents it though.
