    Thanks to some very talented folks who have now discovered how to unpack and repack GT5's file structure, I figured it was time to create an equivalent to the GT2 modding thread.

    As with the GT2 thread and the site-wide rules, discussion of emulation/piracy/disc images etc are not permitted. This thread is simply for showcase and discussion of mods for GT5.

    To kick off the thread, I have a few examples of things that can be edited with simple XML tweaks, for instance:

    - Adding dealers and standard cars to the premium dealership:

    - Adding new cars to event AI selections (including post-release cars):

    Additionally, as it turns out, events are extremely modular and customisable - it's very easy to change which tracks a race takes place on, which AI are allowed to enter, their restrictions and permitted cars, etc. It's even possible to set up per-car delays with a custom non-random grid, essentially allowing GT4's mission races to be recreated given enough knowledge.

    Adding entirely new events is tested and working:

    As we can't add new files yet, I've just set them all to be duplicates of Sunday Cup - in the future however there's nothing stopping us from adding new events, restoring cut ones, etc. Not sure if it'll be possible to give them all icons and unique names, but they're functional.

    Thought I'd finally remake one of GT4's mission races.

    This is interesting! I still have GT5 with update 2.11 on my PS3. Curious about this!

    It should be completely possible once we can add new files. It's already possible now, it just means you have to replace existing races.

    Ok, The Cutting Room Floor is there to see unused files, and if it is possible to put some things that have been removed from the final version of GT5, it would be interesting to start with those things, if someone is interested.

    I don't quite have enough material for a full GT6 thread yet, but I thought I'd tease some GT6 stuff in here:

    Thanks to a recent development, and the fact that PD's cut events are completely finished, we can now do this:

    I subtlely revealed this earlier this year, whether or not anyone truly got the memo on what I had done, I don't know for sure. For those that don't know, due to licensing, in GT5 they have a limitation where you cannot race the Ferrari F1's against anything other than themselves, and it really sucks. What I have done is figured out how to disable that Ferrari limitation via EBOOT editing, so now they can be used against any other car in the game without issue.

    You can clearly see that at play here in these unedited pictures I took.

    In this case, I have the Ferrari F10, Ferrari F2007, and the Formula Gran Turismo all racing against each other, which normally isn't doable, but with a simple EBOOT edit, it can be achieved rather easily. While I only showed these 3 cars racing together, you could certainly race them against any other car you choose and theirs absolutely no side effects to disabling this limitation that I have seen. Certainly makes for some fun racing! :tup:

    Hi guys! I was hoping to find a thread like this one because I really need help!
    I'm planning to do a 24h of Le Mans and Nurburgring on Gran Turismo 5 with some friends, but we noticed that the number and the choice of opponents is not what we would like to have to get a really funny race...:confused: So I was wondering:
    - is there a way to get a 24 hour with more than 12 cars in GT Mode? or if not so:
    - is there a way to get a 24 hour race in arcade mode by modifiying the length of race?
    I've found out that the secret menu doesn't allow to choose between all the car list; also, the max laps in arcade mode is 99 and there's not any time selection.

    Thanks!
