I play the build 189 for many hours, it's really beatiful, for the news i didn'ts see "Self iluminated objects have been added to the time of day engine", "Darren White has shown off first previews of added spot lights to the time of day engine" and "Distance lighting has been added to the time of day system", it's my problem (driver ecc) or this thing isn't in current build?? If the second when this option will present???
Sorry for my english...

The updates will continue to come weekly, this time was an unfortunate exception :)

Pedaso, those tweaks are not available at all tracks yet. Try Connecticut Hill, it's the testbed for these changes.

Maybe they should have a headtitle of there own, or at least a subforum of their own? Should be easier to find that way.
