    Yo fellow GTP users,

    [​IMG]

    As per my post(s) and @Jordan 's reply from the General Discussion Thread. This is a thread dedicated to the upcoming GTSport Unveiling happening on 19-20 May 2016 for the Q&A Session.
    The Community Event will be on 20 May 2016.

    As stated here, there will be a Q&A Session held at the event. The purpose of this thread is to hand pick and put forward a few of the GTP Community's questions pertaining to the upcoming title to the man himself, Kazunori Yamauchi.

    I'm not entirely aware of how the session will play out but for now I rate it would be a good idea to get the best questions from the community for the sake of time and maybe come up with a rough POA. I'm not sure how many questions we'll be able to ask also. I suppose there will be an elaboration of more details closer to time.

    EDIT 14/05/2016: I wasn't very clear but this thread serves to be a pool of questions to ask for anyone attending the event. It's not one dude asking the questions (Unless if you want to be)

    Now the rules for this thread.

    • Be creative with your questions.
    • No slamming or controversial questions.
    • The below restriction has been removed but, be creative!
    • Please none of the same old, "Will there be a livery editor?" questions that have been grilled to death and dryness. As I've mentioned before, be creative!
    For example: "In the GTS Photomode, is there a possibility to take interior shots, use a different type of lens like a fisheye lens and perhaps import photos in RAW format?"

    or

    "Some players enjoy the GT Auto service and the fun that was had in the services cutscenes in GT5. Could we perhaps see those again?"

    or

    "We understand the simulation aspect of GTS, but can it still be a game at heart? "

    Note that simple questions are also good.

    • Ask whatever question your heart desires, just within the constraints of the rules though.
    • For those who will be at the event, please examine and think of some questions (I know it will be on the fly) if you're able to.
    • Refrain from asking close-ended questions .
    • Lastly, no leading questions.
    I think that should be about it for now. Since I won't be at the event, I don't think I'll be the one hand picking the questions, I suppose maybe a group that's going could ask them for us? @Jordan @Famine @SlipZtrEm and anyone else I might be missing, is this alright? If I'm missing anything please let me know.

    So without further ado, let's begin!

    Why, if we still don't have an answer? We want to know.

    It's hard to ask questions when you know nothing of GTS.

    That's the thing. We don't know much, so why don't we ask? :D

    Also, my question is: I understand there will be online FIA events and such, but will there be online open lobby like there was in GT5 and GT6?

    I've got one.

    We all know GT Sport isn't a full game like GT6 was and GT7 will be. So my question is:
    What is the main purpose of GT Sport? Is it just another Prologue-like game to keep us busy while you are finishing the development of GT7?

    The reply I got from their Facebook page:

    "GT Sport is a full GT game, just focused on eSport and the competitive aspect of racing games (hence the "Sport" part in its title), we're working with FIA for some aspect of the game, as announced last year."

    Ask for example, a livery editor is useless if PoDi reveals this feature during the conference.

    Fix ;)

    Well I assume the idea is to present a bunch of questions to Jordan and then he'll ask whichever ones he sees fit during the event, he obviously won't ask anything if they've already been answered beforehand.

    • How will the game be divided percentage wise between normal cars and race cars?
    • What feeling did the team want to capture when working on GT Sport?
    • Did you work closely with FIA during development?
    • Driving for your country and manufacturer is very interesting, how does it exactly work?
    • Will E-Sport be integrated with some real life motorsport events?
    • Will GT Sport have and special mode for commentators to talk us through an E-Sport event?
    • What periods of motorsport you want to cover in GT Sport?
    • What did the FIA think of your RM models you have made and do they have interested in making it an official FIA series?
    • What did you and your team do to level out the different cars for competing in E-Sport events?
    • Will a player be able to choose a class and build his or her car according to the specs of this class? If so, what are the tools provided for the player?
    • When committing to a certain manufacturer, will it unlock certain loyalty bonuses in game for the player?
    • Does the manufacturer have the power to fire the player as a virtual racedriver if he/she does really bad?
    • Will there be a possibility to earn sponsors for your manufacturer / team?
    • When racing for a manufacturer, can the virtual driver be dressed in the official factory suits and helmets?
    • Was / is working with the different manufacturers easier since GT has established a real name for itself?
    • When you see GT Sport in action does it make you feel proud?
    Not very creative but it is currently all I could come up with without demanding if he could make a special Peugeot for me :p

    And someone else got a reply stating it wasn't a full game like GT6, like my question asks, but yeah:)

    Edit: it doesn't answer my question. It answers the stuff above my question

    My (perhaps overly long and wordy) question:

    Gran Turismo is, at heart, a racing game. That seems to be more clearly illustrated than ever with the new direction taken by Gran Turismo Sport, helped by its unique collaboration with the FIA, to create a racing game with specific focus on the competitive aspects of motorsport. With that ethos in mind, what has Polyphony Digital done to improve elements of the offline racing (such as the artificial intelligence and race formats) to more accurately replicate the experience of a real motor race?

    Is it true that Car Manufacturers don't want to see heavy damage on there cars?

    How was the working process for the new car sounds? Did you start from scratch?



    sry if not creative and for my bad englisch

    Will the car data accuracy / simulation be improved ? Other sims are improving, although there are still dev freedom to make them safer for players.

    No more the same toe in/camber on most cars, wrong weight distribution, incorrect spring rate, gear ratios etc. 3 key issue in GT6, camber, aero drag/top speed, and ride height difference effect.

    Mr Yamauchi, as you know, racing simulator games are built from the tire model up. While effective, the previous tire modeling in the GT series was rather simplistic in the way that tires accumulated and shed heat and tire pressures have never been incorporated as a variable in the tire model. Will GT Sport be addressing these elements of tire modeling and, if so, can you give us some details?

    Yeah.

    Just for confirmation. @Jordan , how do you select the questions?

    Is there a shift towards making Granturismo more of an online platform? or is the infamous single player aspect of Granturismo still very much the plan or both?

    Also GTacademy was the best experience in my life so thanks for making that happen.

    How will Yokohama and KW help with the GTS simulation quality this time ? Like what @Johnnypenso said, a good tire model is important, at least to the level of competing PC sims like AC and LFS.

    Will GTS allows dialing camber/alignment using the inner, middle, outside tire temp reading ?
    Will each car have accurate suspension type modeled ?

    I wonder if the real fruits of the Yokohama partnership have been saved for GT Sport... or maybe it was all a marketing tactic.

    By the way, here are the highest rated questions from the DOA Ask Kaz forum that are still relevant and unanswered. Some I've amended so they address GTS rather than the then assumed GT7 or still GT6.

    Mr. Yamauchi, each update to the game seems to bring with it some welcome, but undocumented changes to the game. With each update we create a new "Undocumented Changes" thread here at GTPlanet to keep the community informed and up to date. We can never be 100% confident that all the changes we log are real or from the recent update because many are subtle and hard to detect or measure. Are there any plans for the future to include a full and comprehensive Change Log with each game update moving forward?

    Most questions I have will be hopefully answered by seeing the game. Sound, AI, physics etc.

    I just want to know if they ditched the standards for good.

    Not exactly a gaming feature, even though there is potential in it: Given the ongoing entertainment industry trend of blurring the lines between virtual and reality, the convergence of applicable technologies (GPS tracking and other forms of telemetry...); are you considering the possibility of Gran Turismo becoming a platform for real-world race events live virtualization?

    Will Standard cars be featured in Gran Turismo: SPORT?

  28. You guys are certainly no fans of GT or Kaz, where are the classic questions of the past such as "Kaz, did you enjoy your breakfast this morning"?

    This one might be a bit of a wacky curveball question, but...

    Will there be cars in Gran Turismo Sport?
