Game is out now. Haven't got it yet, but probably will sometime this week.

I'm looking forward to downloading the 1.2GB patch with my slow internet. Maybe I'll get to play it a few hours later.. :lol:

Seriously though, the first thing I'll probably do is a few laps around Mt. Panorama.

Wow installing the 1.2 Gigs right now. I was a bit irritated but it says about 10 mins which is not bad at all considering how much I am downloading

so i got to play for a little bit. i don't like that they force you to buy the honda fit off the bat. i'm used to being given 20k and going into the used cars to buy some old beat up clunker to race. i remember in GT1 I bought a Mitsubishi GTO and in GT2 I got a PT Cruiser. one good thing about no used cars is that all cars in the game can be bought from dealerships. in GT5 i hated waiting for cars in the used cars list because i never got the car i wanted. but they are actually pretty generous with credits so I quickly bought my 02 STI. i like the removal of the XP system and love the mini games and coffee breaks. kart racing is a bit more prominent in this one which is cool, wish they would spotlight rally racing more. and WTF racing on the moon :lol:

i like the return on older tracks although that might seem a bit lazy, at least that's more tracks to race on. apricot hill returned as mentioned before, but grand valley east and clubman route 5 returns as well. some of the night racing is pretty cool.

Got this for Xmas. (Y)

First thing I noticed was the good loading speeds compared to GT5. The layout of the home screen is pretty nice as well.

I agree about the cars all being in dealerships ready to buy. I usually end up getting a complete car list and collecting as many as I can on these games, so not having to wait for them to show up will be nice.

The first proper car I bought was a Supra RZ and it now has almost 940HP, which surprised me as it only reached about 730HP on GT5 :mrgreen:

Just bought my favourite GT car, the Tommykaira ZZII. Only costs 60,000 credits and is 4WD, 962 HP and 920 KG. Basically the same power as a Bugatti Veyron, but half the weight and 1,940,000 credits cheaper. Total bargain and a beast of a car.

I bought the Supra for the FR race & 90's race, but I'll have to check the ZZII out (Y)
First car I bought was the 2002 STI and I raced that in the first 2 levels but the competition is getting a bit harder so I've had to use the 15th anniversary cars that I got for free. Seasonal events helped a bit too. there are 2 events in there that give away a fairly large money reward plus free cars. I just unlocked International A races by getting just the bare minimum amount of stars needed to continue

Have not tried the Sebastian Vettel/Red Bull stuff yet. Tried the first moon mission and it was fun :lol: but I don't think i'll really play that. Yeah lading times are a bit better like you said. I can't wait for a drift event so it gives me an excuse to buy a Nissan Silvia/240 and modify to drive sideways :cool:

The moon challenges seem a lot harder than you would think. It's almost like driving a hovercraft because by the time you see the rocks you're about to hit it's too late to avoid them.

I did the Red Bull junior championship thing today. It isn't easy because all the AI have exactly the same car as you, but you can just throw it into corners because the grip is insane. Good money in it as well.

I realised just now that you get that Mercedes vision GT car for free. You have to go into the vision GT menu and click "receive as gift". It looks cool and can be tuned up to 1100 HP. (Y)

Oh I thought it cost a million credits, but they have it as a seasonal event and I wasn't sure how people were supposed to get enough money to buy it to compete in the seasonal event with it

Doing the 24 minutes Nurburgring race and by the end of the first lap it started to get dark. It was at that point that I realised that the car I'm driving has no headlights. :lol: :x

Toyota 7 race car. It was a shame because it's a beast and I was winning the race and had to quit and buy a $2 million Peugeot. The stupid thing was that I saw an AI driver using the exact same car in the Spa 24 minute race and somehow making it through the night without crashing. :?

I got a couple million from the seasonal events. They can be annoying as you spend laps trying to shave off fractions of a second. But every lap you figure out where you can save time and eventually put a good lap together. I haven't got gold in any yet but silver still pays well.

I've won half of the Super events and they pay really well (especially with the 200% login bonus). I still have a few events to win in both International categories but I'm doing the Super ones because of the $$$, plus they are challenging and fun. You have to worry about Tyre wear, daylight, fuel usage and the weather all whilst having the AI drivers ram you off the road instead of using their brakes. It's all about being on the right tyres at the right time.

I've spent most of my time racing instead of online:
Novice - 24/24
National B - 90/90
National A - 132/132
International B - 96/141
International A - 40/159
Super - 15/27

Also, I've won both Red Bull Kart + Junior Championship and got gold in the first six events at Goodwood.

Actually, I just did one of the new seasonal events that they added today and got gold by over 2 seconds on my first attempt and made 1.5 million. Easy. (Y)

Maybe. The new ones were a Lancia event and a Honda S2000 one. Got 2-3 million for gold in them.

I really hate the go karts in this game. The only thing I need to do in International B is one kart race at the GT arena. I can only get bronze though and you can't really tune karts. It's so annoying.

:fruity:

Won the Nurburgring 24 minute race today. Pretty crazy driving around in the dark with 100% surface water and fog. Luckily I was driving a 4WD and kept it on the track. Only the Le Mans race left to do in the Super events now.

Got over 6 million in the bank as well. :cool:

I bought this game a few weeks ago when it was on sale for $40 on Amazon. It's good! Gran Turismo 5 introduced a lot of new features but the whole thing felt unfinished, even after a year of patches. There was fun to be had but the course list left something to be desired, the single player mode was garbage and as a whole it lacked the nostalgia that has always kept me from enjoying the objectively better Forza nearly as much.

This game still lacks a decent damage model and is missing some of my favorite tracks (Midfield? Seattle? SSR11?) The single player mode is actually fun as the AI is improved, the XP system is done away with and there seems to be more events. The driving model seems to be improved (except for the karts - which are a chore after being surprisingly fun in GT5) and I haven't tried Online yet.

Haven't had a lot of time to play lately and have been taking it slow, so I'm still on International-B, looking for a car to win the GT (All-Stars?) Championship, as the CPU cars keep spinning out my Arta NSX on the High Speed Ring. In the meantime, racing QBaller's driving lines are fun.

I think I used the ZZII for most of them.

I'd have a look right now, but I can't play GT6 atm because my PS3 resets every time I try to download the latest update. I wish they had released GT6 on the PS4 because my PS3 is pretty old and on it's last legs which is annoying. :(

I'll see if I can get it working offline later and have a closer look at those races and what I have done with them.

a ZZII? after rereading what i wrote i guess i wasnt as specific as i thought i was. i was wondering about how to beat the final IA championship. The PP limit on that is ~750 PP

My 15th anniversary Huayra has over 1000 hp but has a mind of its own

I haven't played GT6 in a couple of weeks so I can't exactly remember. I've got the game working now so I'm trying to figure it out.

Which events are you having trouble with? I've done everything except for the Karts, 2/3 of the 600PP, the Super GT300 and super GT500 events.


For the GT World Champs I used the Toyota 7. The first race at Bathurst is the hardest of the series so don't worry if you don't win it. You can always come back and win it later.

You can probably get most of the money spent on the car back from winning the series. I've got over 8.5m credits and I've bought a few cars worth over 1-2 million. :cheeky:

Gradually making my way thrugh the Career Mode. I unlocked the GT World Championship but I'm in no rush to complete it. The Ridge Racer style of making your way from the back of the pack in a 2-5 lap race makes it tricky now that the difficulty has ramped up.

Looking forward to DLC!

Unfortunately I finished 6th at mount panorama and kept going because you said it was the hardest of the series and won 1st twice and 2nd to tie the Minolta heading into nurburgring. Then I shit the bed and got 6th which was still good enough for silver cup overall. What's the prize car for gold?

I'm not sure if you get a car for winning it or not. The prize money is pretty decent though.

You also unlock a video (the ending credits rolling over some highlights of Kaz driving a lap of the Nurburgring 24 hour race), and get two new songs for the soundtrack.

Nope, I don't have the Academy car. Have you got the new Corvette from the seasonal event yet? Tunes up to like 900bhp I think.

I've noticed that a lot of cars can be tuned higher than in previous games. I've got several 1000bhp+ cars in my garage. :)

I can only think of three cars that I've used for the super events. Toyota 7, ZZII and a Peugeot 908 Base Model. All the races are basically endurance races, no rally stages. I actually thought having 24 minute race versions of the real life 24 hour races was kind of clever.

The hard part in these events is knowing when to pit and which tyres to use. There were some good advice threads on GTPlanet that I used to help me win some of these.

Willow Springs 20-Mile Challenge (Toyota 7)
Apricot Hill 20-Minute Challenge (ZZII)
Suzuka Circuit 10-Lap Challenge (ZZII)
Brands Hatch 15-Lap Challenge (Toyota 7)
Nurburgring 24-Minute Challenge (908 because T7 has no lights)
Spa-Franchorchamps 24-Minute Challenge (908 because T7 has no lights)
Ascari Race Resort 10-Lap Challenge (ZZII)
Silverstone 10-Lap Challenge (ZZII)
24 Minutes of Le Mans (908 because T7 has no lights)

I think that's what I used. If the PP is 750 I would have used the Toyota 7 instead of the ZZII. And if it goes overnight I would have used the 908. I get confused because I did most of the races over a few days a few weeks ago and it's a bit blurry :lol:

One thing I do remember though is that you should turn your downforce as low as it goes on the Le Mans race because it has lots of straights.

In memory of the 20th anniversary of the passing of Formula 1 legend Ayrton Senna, Polyphony Digital have formally unveiled their plans to support the Ayrton Senna Institute, developed in close cooperation with Senna’s family.

Starting with the launch of a new Senna Tribute website, Polyphony Digital will be releasing special content throughout the month of May to commemorate the life of one of the most important figures in the history of motorsport.

To begin, a new short film titled “Ayrton’s Wish” has been created by KAZ director Tamir Moscovici, which describes the history and purpose of the Ayrton Senna Institute, and documents the passion with which his family pursues the organization’s goals to make the best of Ayrton’s memory.

Among the new content coming to Gran Turismo 6 later this month is the Lotus 97T, which Senna drove to his first Formula 1 pole position and race victory during the 1985 season.

I shelved this about three months ago. Anyone still play? If so, have they added any worthwhile content?

I can't remember the last time I played it. But that is probably more to do with the fact that my PS3 is nearly dead, rather than me being bored with GT6.

Definitely will start playing again if we get some good DLC. Plus there are races I still need to do.

Got a new PS3 today and I'm planning to spend a lot more time playing this. Been months since I stopped doing races properly because my old PS3 would randomly reset itself. Time to make some money and increase my garage.

Just need for these 5.5gb of updates to download and install first.. :lol:

All I've got left now is the shifter kart championship in International A.

I fired this up for the first time in a while the other day. It was fun and they added quite a bit of content but man, I am rusty! Bought a FXX and can't even drive it. Probably go back and complete some lower level races.

Update 1.10 now available. (2.1GB)

http://www.gtplanet.net/gt6-update-110/
Brake Caliper Paint
It is now possible to repaint the brake calipers on cars equipped with [Racing Brakes] purchased within the [Suspension] menu of [Tuning Parts]. Please note there are certain cars that cannot be repainted using this feature.

More Car Number Customization Options
More cars have been made compatible with the [Driver Number] feature in the [Garage]. There is also an increased selection of [Base] sheet designs on which the numbers can be displayed.

Engine brake reduction control on formula cars disabled
Engine brake reduction control that was active on certain formula cars has been disabled. This is a feature that helps you avoid spinning out from excessive braking forces generated by the engine while the throttle is in the off position. This was accomplished by slightly opening the throttle while cornering even with no input to the accelerator.

Who needs a track editor and other promised features when you can paint your brake calipers?

Update 1.12 is out

The new track they added is pretty cool. Basically just winds it's way around a big lake. It's longer than the Nurburgring.

Driving the time rally event reminded me of old arcade games with the clock running down and the voiceover lady chirping away every time you overtake someone. Good money for winning it as well.

Do you use a controller to play or that thing that looks like the car's handle?
