    GT5 might not be perfect but it's still one of the best (if not the very best) driving simulators with great variety and interesting original ideas.

    If you still think it's not perfect, maybe the Forza forums is a better place for you to voice your opinions :)

    In my opinion if they ever thought about adding one, it would need to be on par or better than the editor in Forza, otherwise I would say don't bother.

    Going by your (very, very flawed logic):

    You don't think it is either. ;)

    ...the suggestion that folks shouldn't be in this section unless they're strictly positive (or that they should head to other games for such audacity) is beyond silly.

    Agreed completely, there are still some restrictions in place and you need a decent understanding of it to get the most out of it. Unfortunately I don't have the time to dedicate to it like some did but the results those who did achieved were outstanding. There is lots to be taken from FM on that. Personally I would like to see a more user friendly interface for GT's.

    If it ever happened, it would need to be controlled in some way, i.e have a list of racing numbers and sponsors in order to avoid this:[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    This is NOT what Gran Turismo stands for. I can only imagine the profanity and ridiculousness that could come of a completely free editor.

    So what? If you don't like it, don't put Jessica Rabbit on your car. I don't like those liveries either, but at least when I want to design my own liveries, I wouldn't be limited by some arbitrary restrictions based on someone else's preference.

    I really don't think you get what they're saying to you.
    And @ShiftingGears, I was just using an example of how a free livery editor could be mistreated without violating the AUP.

    ell I do get it. I'm apparently in breach of rules etc. etc. But there's the freedom of speech. meaning I can spout my opinion anywhere and any time as I please. If people don;t like my opinion then it's their loss. I say the same thing that's been the main theme of this thread, only someone wants to try and slate me. Not going to happen. I stand y what I say.

    It's fine, you can say what you want about the topic, just don't say anything offensive to other members when they try and point something out to you. I do think though that a completely free editor would need to be governed or limited in some way, as you need to protect lobbies from profanity and other ridiculous things, for example racist or offensive slogans.

    If you paid attention to earlier posts you would have noticed that because it's a privately run forum, you cannot say whatever you please. If someone was in your house, you would be entitled to tell them what they can or cannot say, lest they want to be told to leave. The same principle applies here. Except it isn't your house.

    Again that is your arbitrary definition of 'mistreated'. I find a lot of colour combinations in GT5 that I find distasteful even with the limited customisation options available, but others are entitled to their own bad taste.

    I just can't see that fitting with the GT ethos... for me it would need to be limited to something racing related to go ahead. I've said it once and i'll say it again, a free livery editor will cause more problems than its worth.

    If you paid attention to me, you would have noticed that I don't care what anybody thinks. Because I accept, wait for it, FREEDOM OF SPEECH!

    If anyone takes offence to what I say, their problem, not mine. I don't go looking for "+1's" I just want to express what's on my mind. Don't like what I say? Go cry somewhere else.

    I think the fact that Forza has managed an editor for nearly a decade without commonplace fetish porn liveries debunks that idea.

    Well now I've officially read my quota of ignorance and stupidity for the day.

    Trust me, i've heard a lot of people complaining about such liveries on Forza for a while. They aren't very common which is good, but it still happens. If it was a free editor, a livery should be 'approved' before it goes on a car IMO.

    Approved? Now that proposal would truly cause more trouble than it is worth. PD should not and do not have the time to approve every user-created livery that is created. Considering that obscene liveries aren't very common at all is that not proof that the Forza system works? My bottom line is that I don't think PD should limit features for the lowest common denominator.

    A free livery editor is something the community needs. It would open up a new world of creation. If Forza can do it, we need to have it sometime soon.

    And if you paid attention, you'd notice you agreed to these simple rules when you joined. This is a privately owned website on the internet; there is no free speech. If you don't like the rules, you probably shouldn't agree to them and join the site - though it's worth noting the vast majority of our members have no such qualms :tup:

    If it violates the AUP, it most certainly is your problem.

    So you recognize they're not common but still insist on giving PD more work by having to approve each and every design? You know what'd work better? A simple Report function, much as there is in Forza or even LittleBigPlanet, for people to report offensive liveries.

    What you're suggesting is akin to the staff having to approve every single post made at GTPlanet just because a small percentage could be a problem. It's incredibly wasteful.

    Well that's certainly interesting, that the GT "ethos" has to be what you personally deem fit.

    Why should it have to be racing-related, too? If I want to put a stripe on my road car, or recreate a harlequin Golf, or perhaps even create a replica of a particular trim level that the game doesn't offer, why not?

    As others have already mentioned, there's plenty of horrifying colour combinations available in GT5 already, and that's only with the ability to change the wheel and base body colours. The "ethos" argument seems pretty threadbare in light of Passionate Pink TZ2's running around on neon green rims.

    I agreed with a report function aside of total freedom of creation. As a designer I know what I can and can not do, but I would love to have freedom do make my own designs and liveries.

    I have caused a ton of hate with my posts, so i'm sorry if I said anything stupid. I just fear GT could fall into online hell if you could draw whatever you want on your car, but this does not mean i'm against a comprehensive livery editor. I would love to create time attack cars, replica liveries, harlequin Golfs etc.

    Just because people disagree with you doesn't mean that they "hate". It's no big deal.

    I've been waiting for a livery editor ever since GT4. If there was an in-game editor with pre-made images and decals and no way to add your own images, then it wouldn't be a problem. Also, PD could release DLC packs that give you more images/decals to work with.

    the debate about the inclusion of a livery editor is one where i just simply cannot accept any argument against it...there is absolutely ZERO reason to be against a complete and comprehensive livery editor other than ignorance...

    it is a massive plus for the Forza series and adds INFINITE expansion to the game...

    Forgive my newby-ness on this forum ( I'm a disaffected Forza player) but the inclusion of a livery editor has not been confirmed? It's the one thing missing from the GT series that stops me jumping ship. Painting/Designing cars is a good way of relaxing after hours pounding around a track.lol.
    But of course it must be implemented correctly. Just take a look at TDU2 to see how not to do it.Just headhunt the guy who designed the original Forza2 livery editor. I don't think it would be difficult. Last I heard he was working in the purgatory of Kinect.lol
    As for ruining the ethos of GT..... meh. Like all UGC, a tiny amount will be great, some will be good, and some horrific.Just take a look at the Angelina Jolie?! image above. Profane or pornographic designs can be delt with by the community self regulating with a report button.

    I'd be happy even with a simple editor. Racing numbers, stripes, sponsors and decals, sure these should be given free reign over the machine location with customizable colours, size and fonts.

    I don't personally think GT is about Livery editors though.

    I doubt Gran Turismo 6 will get have a livery editor even as an update because either Polyphony is trying to be unique in some way or they have no idea how they will make this feature in the game.

    If it had one, we'd know by now.

    You read that when you proof read your post. Oh wait too ignorant to do that! Either that or stupidity oozes from you.



    It isn't my problem if it offends you. What if you happen to find an object hat happens to be shaped like the Star Of David, yet you're not jewish, and you take offence to that. Is it the star's problem? No. It's yours. If you get offended because you can't tie your shoelace properly, is that the shoelace's problem? No. It's yours.

    Moderator doesn't mean you can throw your weight around with your fancy little title. As I've stated to somebiody before, I've not made threatening posts, I've not used violence, no profanity around here. I haven't evenused sexually explicit words or images. Thus meaning, I've broken no laws, I've maintained my fredom of speech.

    A. There is no freedom of speech this is a private forum with rules which you've been told at least twice now.
    B. Calling someone stupid is abusive.
    C. Mods throw their weight around in enforcing the AUP which we all adhere to. Get used to it...I think it's about to happen shortly in fact...
