The digital download took me 12 hours to download, and now I'm at 32% installation about an hour of installing. This is ridiculous.
Hmm.. looks like @redsoxboy80 hasn't posted anything on GTPlanet since Monday, so he may simply not have logged on since..
@soundtiger95 just posted, but he doesn't have GT6 yet (not that that should prevent him from being able to make a pick).
Does everyone think it's important to know next week's lineup by tonight's test session? If so, we could handle this like the last time we couldn't get someone to pick in time. That would mean those who raced with the Prize winner last week get to make suggestions for their division winner's prize, and then the rest of the league votes on the suggestions made.
Sorry that you haven't got your copy yet, but could you please make your prize selection anyways?
What I didn't like was we allowed randoms to participate. Not the open lobby itself.
Boot them on entry and all is good.
My selection is:
Honda Gathers Drider CIVIC Race Car '98 at Cape Ring Inside
I think it would be nice if we could test with the car/track combos we're racing on Dec 15th. The thread as been pretty active so I think we can get the suggestions and votes handled and be ready by test time.
Okay, since we haven't heard from redsoxboy at all yet, let's open the Prize A selection to a vote..I feel it will be very important to know well ahead of time. If they dont have a copy of GT6 in there hands there are enough videos floating around with the dealer ship pricing.
Thanks soundtiger! The Prize B selection is in!
Okay, since we haven't heard from redsoxboy at all yet, let's open the Prize A selection to a vote..
If you raced in Division 1 last Sunday, please suggest one new car and track combo. You have until 6pm Eastern / 3pm Pacific to make your suggestion. At that time, we'll have everyone in the league vote on the combo they like the most. Please keep in mind that everyone has to buy three cars for the lineup, so the more expensive your suggested car is, the less likely it's going to win the vote.
We are looking for combo suggestions from:
QwietStorm03, Nic-KL, dgafaboutany1420, SPEED14231234, GTP_Ph7shr, GCarneiroBR, jlbowler, serge_1919, dabneyd, SPEED14231234, X-Rad11
Ruf 3400S @ Apricot Hill
Is that 50,000 or less? Just turned off the PS3... Dooh!
I do believe the 3400 is under 50k. somehwer in the high 30s low 40s
No, actually, 70k. How about the '97 MR2?
Great! So far, with his suggestion, dabneyd is clearly in the lead!
I was surprised to see how inexpensive the Crossfire, Spitfire, MR2, 180/240SX, even the GT-R (R34) are under 50,000 (www.mygranturismo.net lists the GT5 cars - most specs are similar or identical in GT6 -you can filter or sort options if you are looking for ideas)
Many of the former Standard cars are now available - choose early (but not often, this ain't Chicago...).
I can pay attention to choices for another couple hours, then we have theater tickets downtown.
Combo 1 - Gathers Drider Civic @ Cape Ring Inside
Combo 2 - RX-7 (FD) '02 at suzuka
Combo 3 - (. )
Combo 3 options:
A) '97 MR2 at Apricot Hill
Is that 100K per car or all 3?
Clio RS '11 (the one we should all have already because it's a prize car) @ Apricot Hill
I think 50k for the first season is just fine. We have to buy tires for most of the production cars that come with CS as well so that adds a little to the cost. Not to mention, it's 8k for a paint job and 3,500 for a set of wheels.
Wait for the Jan. season and adjust the cap accordingly.
Did you adjust any driving options, such as traction control? Did you get all three payouts at once for gold on the first try?Some interesting findings I thought I'd share with the group..... I was running through the Goodwood challenge tonight and noticed that the payout (for at least the 5th set of time trials) was different than the listed amount. I didn't notice while doing the other 4 sets because while 30k in credits is nice, I think we've all been spoiled by 1mil + payouts in GT5. The last 3 (5-1, 5-2, & 5-3) all paid out 70k instead of the listed 40k. Now these were all sub gold times listed as follows:
5-1 - Gold Time: (didn't get this one) My Time: 47.302
5-2 - Gold Time: 43.800 My Time: 42.773
5-3 - Gold Time: 31.000 My Time: 28.344
Not sure if there is a certain amount of time you need to be under by, but the above times all paid out 70k. Also the 5th set didn't pop up right away like the other 4. I think I ran the night races and when I came back to the home screen there was another letter from Lord March! All in all it was a relatively quick and fun way of making a good amount of credits and win some cars!
Any chance that you might reveal some secrets to your success with SNAIL and gt5 that can be applied to GT6? I for one don't want you to be lonely as I often saw in D1,
