O5-Chris/Lisertan, I just wondered if you guys knew if the next patch will include:

1) Keyboard support for consoles to allow use of hazard warning lights and other functions that currently can't be used.
and/or
2) Adding a control for hazard warning lights to the controllers.

The reason I ask is that many people thought that hazard warning lights (by this I mean all four indicators/turn signals and not the beacons) weren't on consoles due to performance reasons but recently there have been YouTube videos of console players using them via the Logitech side panel without any issues.

They just like taking functions away from us. FS17 had keyboard and mouse support on PS4 for example. And finding a key binding for hazards or high beams on DS4 is just some work... not impossible.

As I've been suggesting, if they would implement Wheel Menus for quick access it would eliminate the issue with lack of keys.
You know, like other games when you hit a key and a circle pops up with options on it. One for lights would prevent players having to remember so many keys.

Keyboard support is currently not on our list for 1.4, sorry.

So, we're talking about all the lights being on and blinking which in german we call "Warnblinkanlage" which would include not just the beacons but also the blinkers going on at the same time to indicate. I am stating this because Today I Learned.
So, yes, this is an option that's doable on console, but not activated on the controller and it's something we have put into our "wishlist" already for later. It's not something we have planned for 1.4 either, but we've taken note of the Hazard Lights on PS4/Xbox one thread and i've raised it again.

And just for clarity:
What has been deactivated on consoles are reflections of said lights for performance reasons, not the use of any lights themselves.

As we are on it. We also have conveniently learned from MrSealyp's Logitec Side Panel videos that the vehicles actually have a high beam function (not the wide working lights, actual high beams for long distance illumination).
That would also be very very handy as it is impossible to drive over 15 mph at night since we don't see anything past a couple of meters.

Thanks very much for the response and for raising it again. Good to hear that it's on your 'wishlist'. Thanks for the clarification as well 🙂
