So wait, we can discuss the update here but only if it's positive? Seems balanced and free.

I think he means the standard "THIS GAME SUCKS BECAUSE IT'S NOT EXACTLY HOW I WANT IT!! SCREW YOU PD!! :scared::yuck::banghead:" non-constructive complaining should go there. Civil discussion, whether positive or negative should be fine. Sadly, it's come to the point where you have to post a link to the whinging thread in every new thread because it only takes a matter of minutes before the bitching begins.

This board has always had its share of whinging but it's gotten almost unbearable the last few months.

Why? This is supposed to be a free discussion forum where people are free to say what they want as long as it follows the AUP. I'm tired of people being forced off into one thread if they have something to say you don't agree with.

Maybe you should create a thread called "the epic whinging about not being able to whinge thread"?

The principle of keeping whinging out of the core threads and into whining threats is welcomed so people can find REAL information about the updates without having to wade through numerous repeated posts of uselessness.

That doesn't stop you airing an opinion about a certain aspect of the update, but if all you have to say is 'PD suck blah blah waste of time' there are plenty of places to do that.

What is so hard to grasp about that?!? Now can we please get back on topic?

I've just moved into a new place (without internet atm) so I can't download it yet (thinking I'll take my PS3 to work to download it on there network lol).. but compared to the Vettel events or things like the Shifter Kart Championship, how hard are the time trials??

Does anyone have any pics of the new tracks/layouts? i.e. from the Free run track selector so we can see the layout compared to the 'current' layouts and any comparison in-race screens? From the undocumented changes threads some posts seem to imply the layouts are a little different but the buildings etc haven't been changed.

More difficult than most events on GT6 but not even close to the Vettel events in GT5.

Have you had a go at some of the more recent seasonal events? The Gold times are slightly more challenging than those in the current seasonal events as a comparison. For me, the kart was gold on the first attempt, three attempts for the F3, two at Monza and two at Brands Hatch GP, beating all of them by over a second. The (GT5) Vettel events took me hours and a fair amount of swearing.

I never golded the original Vettel events (GT5) but have done random seasonal events in GT6... it sounds like the Senna challenges are alot harder than anything else in GT6?

I wouldn't say a lot more, but yes more challenging than most events in GT6, including seasonals.

I've got a question, is the 97T acceleration supposed to feel this.. I don't know how to describe it.. laggy? Using my DS3 I've never had trouble in corners feathering the throttle of any car I drive to keep the speed up, but in the 97T if I let off the accelerator just a teeny bit it's as if my foot is completely off the pedal? Then to get back on the gas it feels like there is a delay and then it kicks in. Really feels strange.

Ah sorry, just saw there was a bug thread, I'll take this to the bug thread!

I did enjoy what little I was able to play of 1.08 last night. Just wish the update didn't take AGES to download and install! :lol: I couldn't get into the seasonals because of the maintenance so hopefully I can get in there after work and try out the new VGT. Hope it's fun to drive!

edit: The bug thread is kind of dead.. hmmm. I'd really like to know if anyone experiences the weird acceleration issue I was having with the 97T. Maybe it was just my controller. I might try some different settings tonight. But I know I've never experienced that sort of thing in GT6 before.

I'm pretty sure that's turbo lag. I have the same thing with my wheel.

From watching a lot of old F1 races on youtube, that is pretty accurate. There wasn't a lot of feathering the throttle through a corner in those days compared to what we see today. Quite often when watching a "ride along" video I am thinking "why isn't he on the gas there?". It is because those cars were 1000 HP bath tubs with racing tires and turbo boost that will spin you out if you even think about applying the gas too soon.

If there is one complaint I have it is the Lotus F1 is too tame. It has far too much downforce when compared to the Formula GT or the Red Bull cars and that just shouldn't be so. The Front Downforce should max out around 250 when relating to other cars in the game.

For more realism, minimize all the downforce and apply Sports Mediums and have a go with no aides and abs 0.
