Hello, Luke, late 30's, Tasmania, Australia.
Found Gtplanet looking for information on GT7.
First racing game was Mario Kart, second GT1.
Universal on controllers.
Had a decent go at the Grand Turismo series and anything else on the way.
Striving for a Platnium Medal (PS5) and take interest in appropiate game mechanics for better success.
Hesitate not for sharing any known guidance for others in need.
 
I’ve known about GTPlanet for a while and have been sent here via Google searches many times to get answers to questions relating to GT7.

I’m originally from the UK, but now live in Japan.

The first racing game that I got obsessed with was Sega Rally on the Sega Saturn. Me and my best friend at school did nothing but play the Desert stage over and over trying to beat each other’s best time.

I play with a wheel, and my first wheel was the second generation Logitech Momo wheel that sounded like you were torturing R2D2 whenever you tried to catch a slide. I used an old joystick as a clutch pedal to learn heel-toe downshifting.
Nowadays I’m using a Logicool G Pro Racing Wheel & Pedals, with the dinky Driving Force Shifter, mounted to a Playseat Trophy, thoroughly enjoying Gran Turismo 7 in PSVR2.

I’m a fan of most genres of games, but started getting into sim racing in the mid-2000’s with LiveForSpeed on PC, and a bit of iRacing before I moved away and didn’t bring my PC.

I’m here because a Google keeps sending me here whenever I try to search something about GT7 or wheel settings. Seems to be the place with all the answers. As well as news regarding updates etc.

I'm posting in the hope someone knows more than me here.
I have tried on multiple occasions to change the livery on my Ford GT Race Car '18. I have saved it several times, both in the "Livery Editor" and again in "Save Style". Whilst in GT Auto, in both the "Livery Editor" and GT Auto garage itself, the livery looks perfect. But it will not allow me to save a base colour past this point. No matter what I do the base colour reverts to black. Doesn't matter if it's race track, scapes, or on the track. It also takes forever to save, only to revert back to a black livery and has, on occasion, stalled me PlayStation completely trying to save the cars livery.
Please, please, please help!

I recently purchased a PS5 and GT7. I used to play years ago when the first version of the game was released. I was a member of the EZGT forum and would race there although back then we uploaded replays with a dex drive and the best legal time won. I was looking around to see if it still existed and found GT planet. Are there any players around from the EZGT days?
I’m from the United States.
I started my love of racing games with the Gran Turismo series.
I have recently purchased a Logitech Pro wheel and pedal set. It will be delivered this week. I’ve only been playing GT7 for about two weeks now but have already fell back in love with it. I can’t wait to play online in real time once I get my skill level back in shape.
Right now GT7 is the only game I’m playing but may give ACC a try
I’m looking forward to sharing my love of the sport ,learning from more experienced driver/tuners and hopefully racing against other members.

I found GTPlanet after using the website for Gt7 info and tips.

United kingdom

When I was about 7-8 on PS3

I play with a Thrustmaster T150 wheel, TH8A shifter and T3PA pedals

I enjoy Far Cry games as well as The Crew 2, Snowrunner, Ghost Recon Breakpoint and Need For Speed just to name a few.

Sharing an opinion on Gt7 updates and sharing my wishlist for future updates
 
Hi everyone. I'm Amir from Malaysia.

I found GTPlanet when I was searching for the tuning calculator for Gran Turismo 7 and found the GT7 Tuning Calculator on this site. On Forza Games, I'm using ForzaTuner Pro app. :embarrassed:

I started playing racing games around the 2000's, during that time, game Sega Rally Championships. Now, the latest racing games I play because of weekly event commitments are Forza Horizon 5 and Gran Turismo 7. Also Forza Motorsport 2023, but only play a while because of the bug I faced on Build Cup (Career Mode, infinity save loading issues). NFS Unbound Story Mode is done, but Multiplayer (Online) does not play much.

I have a steering wheel, Logitech G923 with Shifter (Manual) and USB Handbrake. Only use the wheel for cruising and during racing events, I'm sticking with the controller because I have skills issues using wheels in the racing games. :guilty:

There are a lot of games that I do enjoy, the most game I have played recently is Cyberpunk 2077, Valorant, and Counter-Strike 2.

I'm looking forward to any sharing opinions, tips, and guidelines that are related to Racing games, especially Gran Turismo 7. :D

Thanks for having me guys and nice to meet with everyone! :gtpflag:

What is your PSN id so I can add you as a friend.
 
Hey everyone, i'm just making simple vids with some graphic mods. Happy to find about this place, i've been simracng for a while but got back to AC just a few months ago, and the mod thread is a goldmine.

I'm from the Country That Can't Be Named

If anyone interrested i mainly do ppfilters, NeckFX presets, CSP settings and Reshade presets.

Here's a popular vid for example :


Been simracing for a couple decades (started with Vroom on Atari ST :lol:) , huge GPL fan, and mainly driving vintage cars, usually in some kind of free rider form rather than competitive. Drifts before chrono.

Driving with a 7yo T300 RS with a sparco round wheel and TLCM pedals. Used to have a chinese shifter that didn't make it thru the Lotus 49, looking to get a fancy new one.

Used to be in a few leagues from RF to Project cars (1&2), a few months into Iracing, but never really found the time to get 100% into it. Still had a few highlights and wins there and there.

Thank for the website, hope i'll reach to some of you guys here.

Peace,

Ben
