    I was holding out hope, but someone on the 704 subreddit cleared up the image and that looks to be the case.

    I don't really give a shit that you can't drive at Eldora in the late models, eight new tracks to race on is good enough for me.

    Also, this dev is answering what he can, and sometimes it's easy to figure out what he isn't saying or cannot comment on.

    TL;DR:
    - AI reworked (more organic, less robotic, will take risks)
    - Paint booth reworked/improved
    - AI difficulty increased on harder levels
    - physics altered for better feel (this has been confirmed by a user that actually did testing, the car feel is markedly 'improved' since NH2)
    - ISM will have the new layout only
    - No day-to-night transitions, looking at it for next iteration once they've gotten to play with the new engine more

    I actually love this. They're willing to not do certain extra polishing stuff to make the stuff that matters better. That's awesome.

    Ed Martin posted this. Could possibly mean that the last race of the dirt season is at Charlotte.

    For better or worse I hope they do good things with it and continue to improve each year. The worst case is they stagnate and make it like Madden each year with minor tweaks that don't overhaul the underlying true issues/what fans really want added.

    Why do we need to have exclusive licenses for things? Let's have some competition between a couple different developers.

    One exclusive developer = worse overall game, almost every time

    I'm still hopeful about this though...

    Ed Martin has said if they got the funds they would look at the more expensive game engines (although the new Unity isn't a slouch). With a sure-fire license agreement, and backing from Motorsports.com, I think they could start considering ramping up to a better engine and/or additional features with more staffing.
