    Yes, I think I could live through it. As I say though, it's being worked on for the next iteration of the engine. It should be much better.

    I did a test by modifying the graphics settings of shadow of game looks at what happened... Believe it or not looks the difference of the images.

    The first image is game running on the settings ultra in shadow.

    Looking so you can see that with the shadow disabled do not see these black points inside the cockpit. This is really strange, because with the shadow disabled is better than ultra for me.

    Ian, another area that could do with some attention is the colour banding on the night sky in the PS4 version. There's an almost 8-bit stripe effect, as if the colour palette is limited to only a few dark blues and greys, so any graduation doesn't blend well. It's very noticeable around nighttime clouds as well. There was a thread about this but I don't think many conclusions were drawn as to why it happened and how best to combat it.

    Anyway, hope you can fix it for pCARS 2 as it really cheapens the look of night races.

    I just made a thread about this as I’ve started to notice the same thing. I’ve only seen it just after the sun has set and the sky goes from grey on the horizon to black at the top. I’ve only seen it in HDR on the PS4 Pro.
