Getting the most out of the GT5 Photomode
Gran Turismo 5 has been out for a while now and Polyphony Digital has been working really hard to right a lot of the wrongs the game had at launch. Since release we've seen an increase in experience gain for doing A/B-Spec races, weekly online racing events that pay out a lot of money and are fun, a weekly online dealership that lists the most rare and popular used cars, lots of customization options for multiplayer, remote races from your computer, more car tuning options and more. A very large patch just recently hit that brought a huge list of changes and improvements to the game and more are on their way.
Developer: Polyphony Digital
Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment

This is your simulation mode. It works in a similar fashion to Forza 3 in that there is a level up system with a max level of 40. Each racing event, series and special event has a level requirement. Complete races, special events and license tests and gain experience points and you will level up. Every car is also available for purchase this time around, but they all have a level requirement as well. This is to make it more casual friendly, so all players have a chance at earning the really nice cars, but can't just grind it out or ask their friends to send them the cars either.
In Gran Turismo 5, every player has his or her very own private racing lobby online called "My Lounge." Only people on your PlayStation®Network Friends list can enter.
In My Lounge, players can pick the track of their choice, set up custom race regulations, and hold private custom racing events with their friends. Up to 16 players can race at the same time. It's even possible to sit back and watch without having to join the race yourself, with a variety of race camera views available. People in the lounge can even do free runs around the track before the race begins.
Imagine this: You set a time for a race using the in-game messaging feature, and wait for people to gather while you do free runs around the track. Your friends start to join, with people doing laps to warm up. Once everyone has arrived, it's time to race. Anybody not racing can watch the race live and chat with everyone else there.
Gran Turismo 5 introduces the Course Maker feature, which allows you to generate your own original tracks.
Select the environment and terrain, and then adjust a variety of parameters such as course length and corner sharpness to easily create a variety of tracks that match your taste. When you've created something you really like, share your original track with your friends online, and use them to race against your friends in My Lounge.
Course Maker adds a wealth of racing options to expand and customize your Gran Turismo experience.
Course maker themes:
- Toscana (Tarmac)
- Eifel (Circuit)
- Mt Aso (Tarmac)
- Liege (Gravel)
- Alaska (Snow)
- Eifel (Kart)
- Tokyo Bay (Kart)
Levels of Vehicle Damage
Performance damage affects how the car performs based on calculating the physical effects of collisions and damage on various parameters. It affects vehicle stability and control, depending on the amount of damage taken. This level of damage affects both premium and standard cars.
Dirt, Scratches, and Dents
This is damage that can be visually seen, and involves the vehicle collecting dirt, scratches and dents. This level of damage affects both premium and standard cars.
Dislodging and Deformation of Body Panels
This third level of damage causes body panels to come loose or to deform from their original shapes. This level of damage affects premium cars only.

Version 1.10 Update:
Racing Gear Items
New racing gear items consisting of helmets and suits have been implemented. These can be used by players in A-Spec, or for any of the “My Drivers” in B-Spec.
There are plenty of variations to the racing gear items and, in addition to several sets being given out as presents when you start GT Mode, players will be able to win new ones when successful in online events. Players can also take a photo of their drivers wearing their favourite gear, and use that custom photo for a driver profile.
For more details, please refer to “Racing Gear” under Top Menu - [Manual] – [GT Mode].
Special Online Event Campaign
For a limited time, all event prizes will be tripled, and all cars appearing in the Online Collector’s Dealership will be brand new (0 mileage) and at half price.
Prizes for online events
GT5 will now offer online events in which players can win Racing Gear items and cars as prizes, according to performance. The content of the prizes and the conditions for winning them will vary per event.
Details of the various events are found in [GT Life] – [Online Events].
Parts purchases through the Settings screen
In the Settings screen, parts that players have not yet purchased will now have a shopping cart icon appearing next to them. These can now be purchase on the spot. Purchased parts will immediately be equipped on their car.
For details, refer to Top Menu – [Manual] – [GT Life] – [Settings]
Improved Opponent AI Algorithm
The search range of opponent AI has been expanded and their intelligence algorithm has been improved.
Interrupting and resuming Championship races
In the championship races of A-Spec and B-Spec modes within [GT Life], there is now an interrupt button in the quick menu which appears after completing individual races.
If the interrupt button is pressed, the event will be interrupted and a player’s record up to that point will be saved, and the game will end. The next time the player starts the game, they can continue the championship race from where they left off.
Additional music track
After playback of the ending movie (*short version), “Day To Live/daiki kasho” will be added as a bonus music track.
Check the physical endurance of drivers that are resting in the B-Spec endurance races.
Sort the garage by [Last Car Driven]
In [Weight Adjustment] of [Settings], players can now see changes in the front to rear weight balance when the ballast position is changed.
The A-Spec driver is now displayed in the profile screen.
In the pit menu of B-Spec, the time limit for being able to direct pit work has been changed from reaching “0″ in the count down, to “Until the car comes to a complete stop”.
The sorting order of the music album has been improved.
When selecting a track created in Course Maker from the course album of Arcade Mode or GT Mode, players can now run single races with up to 16 cars. (Excluding some tracks such as those made before the update, and dirt tracks.)
It is now possible to take 3D photographs even without connecting a 3D compatible TV.
It is now possible to export 3D photographs to [Photo] on the XMB™.
Correction of Known Issues
PDI has addressed the issue of the maximum speed set in the transmission settings of the settings menu differing from the actual top speed of the car. This will affect cars equipped with the relevant transmission tuning part, and almost all racing cars. Cars for which each gear ratio was adjusted manually with a full customised transmission in update versions 1.07 and earlier will not be affected.
An issue with the increase and decrease of the online logon bonus has been corrected.
An issue where the player’s car and opponents’ cars braked at the wrong timings in the pit lane during B-Spec has been corrected.
A problem where racing sound effects were turned off after changing settings in the quick menu has been corrected.
An issue of how dirty the oil is when players purchase a used car not being affected by the car’s mileage has been corrected.
An issue where some of the driver gear colours had changed after the 1.06 update has been corrected.
An issue in the championships of GT Life where opponent cars kept using the same tyres in the second race and onwards has been corrected.
An issue where the menu BGM was being played back during remote racing rather than the race BGM has been corrected.
An issue of the program freezing when opening a garage containing nearly the maximum number of cars has been corrected.
A new “Expert Challenge Race” Seasonal Event has also been made available with the following races:
Trial Mountain in a Fiat 500
Tsukuba in a Lotus Elise 111R
Laguna Seca in a Subaru Impreza Sedan
Version 1.07 Update:

I was about to order this on Amazon but it's telling me it doesn't come out until Wednesday...but it's really tomorrow...right?
Had to correct the OP just now. It is the 24th not the 23rd. Weird date though I know, games never come out on a Wednesday in the U.S. I hate that so much because it means if Amazon screws up you aren't getting your game until Friday.

Today is a good day.
To bad you got that LBP2 guide to write still.
|# ¿ Nov 22, 2010 17:17|
Your garage has a tab for premium and standards, so no need for an excel spreadsheet.
|# ¿ Nov 22, 2010 17:48|
I'm confused and am having a hard time finding info on this. What "major flaws" are there, as indicated in the OP?
A lot of it was covered in the previous thread but some of "issues" (doesn't mean you are going to care, some will, some won't) are basically the lack of customization, inconsistent quality, and a not very well balanced car list. The 1000+ car list was not used to its fullest potential, things like 50+ Skylines, and over 600 Japanese cars dominate the list. The quality is inconsistent across both cars and tracks. Things like not having weather and night on all courses, and not all standard cars being up to the same quality (GT4 cars look significantly poorer compared to the GT Portable ones). Some people feel its bad enough that so many cars don't have cockpit views. It's going to feel strange going from a premium to a standard, but you can pretty much just avoid the standards altogether. Think of them as a bonus.
I think it's okay to be honest and admit that for a game that has been in development for nearly 6 years, it has some issues that are confusing. It doesn't seem like Polyphony managed its time very well and should have hired a larger staff. Racing sims are a huge undertaking.
With that said, I think the multiplayer is what will hold this game together. If Polyphony can deliver on their Multiplayer promises, this will be the racing sim to play without a doubt. That is the most important feature is the multiplayer, everything else doesn't matter at the end of the day if this works out really well.
To put it simply: people would rather have 200 cars than 1000.
It's not that at all. It's that some people feel that it was squandered on a poor car selection. I think the standard car list wouldn't have nearly as much negative attention if it was a better list. I know you can't please everyone, and that shouldn't be the objective, but there are some pretty historic and good cars that are missing. Instead of having a whole bunch of Mazda MX-5's for example we could have had a few more European cars.

One of the extreme events in GT4 had 15 races. I remember this because I did it in b-spec, 3x the speed, and it still took about 7 hours.
Hopefully more are unlocked or added later. Car manufacturer races are absent for example.

Well I mean maybe it's different for "hardcore" gt fans, but all I'm hearing at the shop is bellyaching over how "terrible" the standard cars look...
Most of the standards are from Portable and I can tell you those look really nice. Anywho who thinks otherwise is a huge butt. The GT4 ones are offensive though but there are hardly any of those.
|# ¿ Nov 23, 2010 04:29|
I totally realize that, it's just to Joe Public these cars are "ugly and lazy".
I see what you mean yeah. What you are seeing online too is people cherry picking cars so they have something to cry about.
But yeah, I want to freeze myself tomorrow as well. I dunno what i'm gonna do on Tuesday, I guess play more Gran Turismo 4. I was playing tonight, time trial on the Le Mans track with Bently 8 Speed Race Car. I got a time of 3 minutes and 30 seconds. Was wondering what the record is for that car in real life.
|# ¿ Nov 23, 2010 04:35|
The rest are imported from the previous games, and they can't change what cars were in those.
PD could have just created new standards, it's not like they didn't have choices. But whats done is done, game is still gonna own. I'm getting tired of talking about this issue anyways, just wanted to explain to someone what some of the issues are that people have.
Heading home from work now, hope that patch is waiting for me when i get home
Yep! Confirm for us if it's actually real. Anything posted on GTP should be taken with a grain of salt, although i'm going off the assumption this thing is real.
Hahah yes... this is the damage we were waiting for; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XINu...player_embedded You unlock this at level 40.

So wait, did you get buried in the sand? Can you get out? That is so awesome because in every other racing sim, sand is just a flat surface that is just like any other hard surface except it slows you down.
|# ¿ Nov 23, 2010 05:12|
I tried a couple hours back and said "not available on this version" at the time. I just assumed it was because launch date isn't for a couple of hours yet. Is it live now?
If you haven't gotten the patch yet, exit out of GT5 and then start the game up again and you should be prompted with a download.

One of the other things the first patch changes is how weather behaves in-game now. It is more dynamic and changes more frequently. It can go from sunny to rain during a race basically.

No official patch notes. Just people passing information around and what others have seen from playing.

Does Amazon normally ship it one-day UPS?
If you pay enough they will. Actually Amazon did release day delivery for 99 cents for GT5. I got it for free myself though.

Europe and places selling it early in general. It's pointless to ask what stores in your area are selling it by the way. Just for anyone who is thinking of doing that.

So my game won't start unless I unplug my ethernet cable. If the servers are down then the game doesn't get past the splash screen.
You don't need to disconnect, you just need to wait a few minutes. But disconnecting is obviously faster.

So, on the day/night cycle tracks, does the time always fly by at like 50x normal speed, or can you set that and maybe the starting time of day?
I think the idea is that it is based on the length of the race.

Got an email today from Amazon, they have an issue with my billing address. For some reason they are using my work address from 4 years ago and not my home address. What's bad is it's not letting my try and change it.

Yeah, but now that they put the 'install' option right when you start the game up, you know most people will do it anyways. Then they will be stuck sitting there for an hour (or longer) watching this slowly install
That is apparently a pretty well respected gaming site but the bitch about everything, so I dunno. Besides there is no way they tested the multiplayer. I'm waiting for Gametrailers review and Sam Bishops review.

Then the very next race, I win a FT-86 which is quite nice.
Can you win cars more then once? Will make getting credits pretty easy.

I think I won it for becoming lvl 4, or 5, I can't remember.
Ahh I see. I was wondering about when you complete the races, for example for the Sunday Cup. In previous GTs you could just clear your wins and do them over again to win the prize cars as many times as you want.

This answers how GT5 Anywhere is going to work; http://us.gran-turismo.com/us/products/gt5/bspec/
Remote races can be started from the us.gran-turismo.com official website, where you can even monitor the progress and check results of the race.

I'm making 8,000 every 3 mins on the FR race, in the Beginner Series.
Gonna need something more then that though for the 10,000,000+ credit cars. Some of the ones I really want are in the 20,000,000 range.

Is it possible to race in B-spec mode at faster than x1 speed?
Normal speed only. :/

I actually hope they do find a way to make money quick, because the best cars usually can't be bought anyway. Plus I like to have more than one nice car.
GT5 is different, you can buy everything so long as you have the correct level and credits for it. The only exception seems to be the Redbull X1 Prototype.

How is this different from every other 'buy-your-stuff-in-game'-game?
I'm talking about GT4. This is different from GT4 where the best cars were locked away and required that you completed some absolutely insane requirements to obtain them. Such as the Formula 1 car only being obtained by doing the 24 hour race. The best cars were won from doing the hardest races and challenges.

If you share your B-Spec driver online with others, you can't use him until you disable him from offline mode.

Can you have your b-spec driver race online with other players and/or their b-spec drivers?
