Typical. Just typical....
Highlandor - I believe that I was one of your biggest supporters in GT5, so I am not sure why you are trying to pick a fight with me in GT6? It's ok. At least I know where we stand.
When you created your LSD guide, I wrote you a PM saying thanks for what you were doing - you didn't respond.
During conversation re some of the FITT tests, I offered you the opportunity to create a tuning test to see tuner's ability to adapt a tune to an individual's need - again, you blanked me, no response.
After opening my tuning thread here, again, not a single comment or "like" from you, again you''ve blanked me.
I'm struggling to understand how a recurring theme of being blanked (by you) equates to you posting that you were one of my biggest supporters?
This is why I wrote my response "typical, just typical" - after being blanked by you for so long, its now you decide to start to communicate..
Anyway, like I've said before - I'm not here to fight or argue.
I realise that my initial response to XDesperado67 could be viewed as hostile, so I'd like to apologise to Doug AKA Ol'Harvey Wallbanger for any offence caused.
I know that there are many genuinely good guys within FITT and I would like to take this opportunity to apologise to them for any offence caused by my response, or anything I've said in the past.
I wish you all the best with your tuning, test(s) and Federation in the future.
This will be my last post.
Really? Then why did you start this one? I think I see the chip sitting on your shoulder. not mine.
So I somehow am holding you back? I linked your garage in the FITT reverse engineering thread the same day you opened it. And wow... that's a lot of angst over a lot of little stuff from GT5. I don't think you were hugged enough as a kid. Here. I'll give you an internet hug in an attempt to extend the olive branch. Hug.
Dissapointed with how this thread is going, shame XS putting in some graft to create a user friendly thread only for people to come, draw swords and start ****ing the place up, maybe start some other thread where you can bitch and moan about each other from days/months maybe years gone by
since thread is stickied should just delete every post other then the op and keep it bloody on track... jesus.
that being said, the point raised was valid, a few times i've clicked thru on some tunes and gone thru and went to "Tune" my car using said "tune" to find out it changes 2 things from stock if that... im sure this was the main issue being brought up. Should it be classed as a tune if it only changes like 2 options a few degrees? and wouldn't it be nice to be notified of this in the OP so people who arn't after something like this arn't wasting time clicking on them?
anyway as XS said its his thread, he can do what he likes and my personal opinion is since this has been stickied there really shouldn't be any more discussions just let the OP continue to be updated however he sees fit with suggestions being sent via pm to stop this petty bickering which will just end in us losing valuable members of the forum.
@XS I'd say keep it simple, anyone who takes the time to post in the tuning forum then send the relevant information set out how you wish to receive it to yourself, then goes into the directory. The directory should be a quick way for people to find what they are looking for, it's then upto themselves to do "the legwork" by clicking on the link, reading the information the tuner may have posted about that build and then they decide if it's right/wrong for them, don't overcomplicate things for yourself, can you imagine how busy this place could be once it's in full swing, don't want to see something with so much potential and a simple way for people to find things suddenly grind to a halt due to the work involved keeping it ship shape.
Thanks for the hard work,
@XS , I would like to suggest a couple of things to get the community to help you with this cool project:
- Give tuners a template so that they submit links that you can just paste in the OP.
- Have the template include the relevant info to help differentiate type of tune
- Let the community help curate the list by posting in this thread when a link does not work or the info is inaccurate
For example, tuners can submit a link like this:
Racing. Honda. Nsx type r '02 pro - Dante - PerfPoints, (S,D,T,P,B,L)
The first two parts tells you where to paste the link, the rest gives the user the info about it (S=Suspension, D=Drivetrain, T=Transmission, P=Power, B=Body, L=List of parts)
This way you don't worry about classifying tunes as base or full or whatever, you just list the components in the tune and let the user decide.
I'm almost scared to put my opinion in this thread. [insert rant about users in this thread and praise for other users in this thread] I have only gotten a couple not good bits of feedback on any of my tunes. I would say bad, but it's always just "the tune isn't for my driving style". I usually spend around an hour with some cars, but a couple I have just gotten right off the bat, and then a few minor tweaks and in 15mins I got a tune that quite a few people enjoy. Hell, I can take one of Praiano's tunes and probably find a setting or two that I can change to adapt the car to my driving style [and ds3]. Does that mean that he makes base tunes?
It's up to the person using the tune if they like it or not, at least all parts can be interchanged now so it will cost less to change tunes if you don't like what is used
pipnick (did I get that right?) I like your idea, but I don't know if everyone would end up doing this every time
@Bee_Bee9 and @ragnar666 - true. My apologies to XS for partaking in that.
@jtqmopar - I thought that you started to find your tuning legs in GT5 during the last few tuner challenges. I don't think you are that far off for GT6 either. Would be happy to work on a few cars with you and trade some findings if you are game for it.
You are right... maybe if people volunteer to monitor garages they can submit the links in the right form.
I only meant GT5 tunes, and only a couple that were in shootouts (and one underpowered mustang in a botched series where the new camaro was decimating)
That'd be great, but you're going to have to pick up your seasonal times! I'm only doing worse in the Mito event because I don't like low-powered FF cars, medium powered FF cars, or high powered FF cars (see a pattern? lol) although I do like to hang back and admire your driving line.
Okay, enough kidding around. It could get hectic, but for now if we link to our tune with the OP's format all that would need to be done is a copy and paste. I honestly don't mind my tunes being overlooked if I have to post every one (OMG soo much clicking, that's too much work /sarcasm) with a link. Although I could just copy/ paste from my tune listing since they are linked there.
This has been a trip through JTQmopar's thoughts. Be glad that I left 85% of them out...better make that 98%
you are fine their your opinions, some here just like to have all the attention think they now it all remember it is just a game simulation your tunes are not any better or worse then theirs we all have drive different styles so post all u want buddy, if they don't like what you have to say then they can just move on, real persons appreciate what you are doing, and that is enjoying this site and sharing your thoughts no need to go away enjoy thats why it is here for.
Now THIS is what I wanted to see.
What? Your tunes improve my lap times by at last half a second, at least. Yeah I'll adjust the final tune for my taste but I fail to see how any tune that improves a lap time over stock is a poor tune. Give yourself credit .
Thanks for the kind words, but I can't seem to get across that what I mean is even an awesome tune for me can be adjusted by someone else, but that doesn't make it a base tune.
For me as a driver, all my tunes are amazing and that's the ones you see. You will never see a published tune that just doesn't work for me. I have the Audi R8 4.6, and it is amazing on mostly flat, medium to high speed corners, but will still wash out sometimes and that's why I don't post it yet. Also, it might be a little addicted to doing circles on the tight 90's at London lol
I know what you meant, and I agree with you. I just wanted you to know I tested your tunes and I like them .
I find time trials pretty useless. I usually spend just enough time to get the gold then take the money and buy something that I want to drive. My average time spent on seasonal time trials is about two laps. I did drive the BMW time trial for about 15 min. How close were we in that one?
IDK, I do the same thing in seasonals. You're just the only one that doesn't use all aids to have the fastest time out of my friends list. I prefer driving cars that I enjoy driving. Just did a couple laps around Nurb with the Boss 302 with only FC suspension (untuned) and sports exhaust and it was a blast
The Peugeot 106 is the GTI/S16 model not the Rallye one.
What? I even fired up GT6 to see which model and I could have sworn the dealer only had one 106, the Rallye. I must have been way that night. Sorry about that.
I just want to say thanks to XS you are awesome, Didn't even realize my 787 tune was here, So good work on categorizing and organizing it all how you have, I'm sure many others are equally thankful for this thread.
New from JTQ Tunes:
Ferrari 430 Scuderia '07 - 600PP - Sports Soft
Lotus Elise '11 - 500PP Sports Hard
BMW M3 Coupe '07 - 500PP
Ferrari 599 '06 - DRIFT TUNE 570PP
Wow, just checked the OP Thanks a lot XS, I see my 1st GT6 tune is there, I have recently added 2 more cars :
Nishizao SPL AE86 Levin GT Apex '83 Drift Bible ver 387PP - Comfort Medium
ZEEK Tuned MR2 GTS '97 Best Motoring 400PS 503PP - Comfort Soft
XS thank you a lot for your time that you dedicate for GTPlanet, thanks again
Just watched your 2 tunes^^, thanks for thinking also for the DS3 players
You're welcome The tires used for the tune is the recommended tire to replicate as closely as possible the grip level of the real cars, but you can always use higher grip tire for racing or if the comfort tire deemed lacking in grip. Be sure to try the Kei Office cars, they are quite low in power but still fun to throw around twisty tracks.
Thanks XS and to all the Tuners who put in the time and thought to do this and who keep on tuning. What a great resource. I actually find that I learn so much from these tunes....Happy New Year and Cool Yule to all!
