I have an mobile internet connection with limit of data volume, and sometimes I go online project cars downloads the entire software current V9 about 7GB. :mad:
Why is an update a complete installation and not a patch ?
How can I disable this, and decide which update I want ?

Patches and fixes are included with the DLC packs so new tracks/cars/liveries are also included in size of patch.

Does the game size keep incresing with adding patches or something is deleted after the new patch instal?

The new DLC is added as well. So new Cars + Tracks.

So once you unlock or play with someone who has unlocked cars/tracks you have everything.

Otherwise you would have to download them and couldn't play others etc.

Everything is bigger on PS4, that's not necessarily a good thing. Lol
