    Just for you, because I love you all so... Here's a database of all of the races and race series, A & B-spec permissivity, licence requirements, tracks, laps, prize money (for 1st place and championship 1st place) and SOME of the prize cars. A prize car database can be found elsewhere - I'm filling mine in as I confirm each car.

    Note that the prize monies are in the NTSC/J game, which has all prices 100 times larger than NTSC/US and PAL games, so divide by 100 if you're not using the NTSC/J version.


    File unzips to .xls format. If you are unable to view .xls files, there are free downloadables which will allow you to.


    Update: I've added a file called "gt4racedatabasePAL". This is modified to reflect prize monies for the PAL and North American NTSC versions of the game. There were also a couple of small editing errors I picked out and a couple of "terminological inexactitudes".

    Another option for viewing XLS files is OpenOffice.org. Available for all major platforms, open source, has all of the MS Office-type functionality I've needed.

    Are there no prize cars for most of the races or is the sheet just incomplete? If so, could it be updated when you get that far?
    Great Job so far though! :tup:

    I have noticed one formatting error and one track listing error, which I'll be updating this evening.

    Right, but is the case of the no-prize-cars for endurances true?

    No. I've only done one endurance - and that was after I posted this - so I haven't included them yet.

    There are prize car lists in the FAQ at the top of the forum...

    Hello Famine ,

    I would like to insert that list on the download section of GTIRN .

    I'll wait your answer.

    Thank you.

    Sure, i do know that, and I can understand how you've only completed one endurance, given how long they are.....

    I'll likely fill in the data myself and print it off, but can you confirm a sole prize car for championships? The lottery of the previous GT games was a little annoying, and though i'llbe glad to see it gone it means a reduced range of prize cars, but hey, i can't comlain...

    You state that you're able to bring in $10,000,000 credits from a save GT3 game. I have been only able to bring in $100,000 credits and one time only. How did you accomplish the 10 fold increase?

    It's a 100-fold increase, and the reason is...

    Japanese NTSC version. All of the credits in the Japanese NTSC version are 100 times larger, meaning that you get 100 times more prize money, but everything costs 100 times more.

    I guess I should update this file, really...
