    From the Assetto Corsa Facebook page:

    Hi everyone! As you can all imagine, it’s been incredibly busy across our community channels in the last 48 hours. Therefore, we want to use this post as an opportunity to address some of the biggest FAQ’s we’ve seen recently…

    ADDITIONAL CARS (PERFORMANCE AND PRESTIGE PACKS)
    Over the last few days, an increasing number of our community members have been asking about the availability of the PRESTIGE and PERFORMANCE bonus cars for those who own the standard edition of Assetto Corsa. Right now, we don’t have any information to share. Should this change in the near future, we will let you know across our Official community channels.

    PLEASE NOTE – The Assetto Corsa Season Pass DOES NOT contain the additional bonus cars seen in the PRESTIGE and PERFORMANCE packs.

    ISSUES / BUGS
    If you are experiencing issues with the console edition of Assetto Corsa, please head over to our Support Forums... http://bit.ly/2bFUtt6

    PRIVATE LOBBIES
    We hear you! Our biggest priority with the console editions of Assetto Corsa was to release a stable game with great driving. Be rest assured, going forward, we are going to do our very best to take community feedback on board and build upon the foundations we’ve laid.

    STEERING WHEELS
    A number of players have been asking us about the compatibility of certain steering wheels. Please refer to our Official website, where we have published a list of supported and compatible wheels...
    www.console.assettocorsa.net/supported-wheels.php

    Good to see they have officially acknowledged the lack of private lobbies.

    All I get from that is that they've heard all the complaints, but aren't going to do anything about it.

    I simply see it as them not making any promises. Both PD and SMS have promised and not delivered. As they said their biggest priority was stability and driving and they have certainly achieved that.

    Going by your champship thread, there's no way to actually create a room right?
    It's all dedicated servers, with server based track/car combinations on rotation. Is that right?

    Yes dedicated servers with fixed car-track combinations and room settings. I'm yet to see any sort of rotation, although it has only been 4 days. I'd expect them to refresh the servers available on a regular basis because at present some cars aren't available in a single multiplayer server.

    That's all great and everything, but where can i see my tyre temps and wear indicators? Is there udp support for consoles? Private lobbies.... blah blah blah. Simulates driving a car well, but doesn't give you much else to play with. I still think it's a great game but it's missing some bits i think it really needs.

    New statement on FB:

    Kunos Simulazioni are 100% committed to ensuring that we build on the foundations we've laid with Assetto Corsa, for our console players! There’s a lot going on behind the scenes and we want to take this opportunity to give you an insight into what’s been going on since launch and our next steps...

    FULL BLOG > http://bit.ly/2cg8peq

    WHAT’S NEW?
    A number of players were experiencing multiplayer performance issues on the Xbox One connected to voice chat. 2 days ago, we released an update which tackles this issue, so players can now head back in game and enjoy Assetto Corsa.

    SCREEN TEARING AND FRAMERATE ISSUES
    Our developers are fully aware that some of you are experiencing screen tearing on both platforms, with Assetto Corsa. They’re currently working on a fix and we will update our community as soon as we can with more information.

    PRIVATE LOBBIES
    Whilst we have no news to share right now, what we can say is we are evaluating the available options. Please be patient with us and we’ll keep you guys updated.

    AI DIFFICULTY
    This is a tough one… We don’t want to make the game ‘easy’ by any means, but we do recognise that the AI may need tweaking, especially on Easy mode. Our team are aware of this request and are working on a solution. Again, more info on this soon!

    CONTROLLER / WHEEL CONFIGS
    We hear you and we are addressing this! We are also working to improve the controller functionality in Assetto Corsa.

    Let’s wrap things up for now by saying a massive thank you again to our community for their support. We are excited to build on the foundations we’ve laid. Whilst it’s practically impossible to reply to each and every one of you individually, please know that we do hear you and we are listening.

    All we ask is that you stick with us, be patient with us and show us the level of support you always have done.

    Iv done a bit if skimming around the Internet and now I'm more confused than before about pitstops in AC. Do the AI actually pit in? I rolled around 20 odd laps in the lotus f1 thing and nobody pit. Any info?
