    Let me just say thanks to @Yinato for sharing his thoughts on the build in the forums. :tup:

    I think the hud looks a little too tall now.

    My mates and I are going nuts over all of these small new details that are being added into the latest build. A list of things we caught that (I believe) were not mentioned are as follows:

    BoP Option
    Forza-esque rating on Top Speed, Acceleration, Braking, Cornering, Stability
    Torque Distribution (whilst driving)
    Apparent multi-class

    Also, did I mention those LOVELY trees?

    The more news that comes out on this game gets me more hyped up, and the more I look forward to getting my hands on this new jewel!

    Personally I don't want more and more added to the HUD.

    PD can we please have UDP apps like Pcars, AC and F1 so i can run without the HUD.

    The radar looked pretty cool, like to see it in action

    If it's anything like how GT6 did it, you can probably do that

    Hey guys does anyone notice the arrows pointing left and right under the speed/gear thingy on the HUD? They look like indication arrows, like in a real car...

    I didn't think GT6 allowed UDP apps?

    First 2 things I noticed was how much better the sense of speed looks, and how the in car view is as bright as the other views rather than the shadowed effect of GT5/6. Looking forward to seeing the whole package.

    GT6 didn't have UDP output?

    The more added to the Hud the better. As long as you can switch any element on or off.

    Noticed a certain track marshal waving a yellow flag at 3:35.

    Please, tell me I'm not the only one who had a slimer of hope of seeing the Logitech G27 mentioned on the article once it started listing the wheels that appeared on the menus. And then, of course, the sudden realization Sony/PoDi is going ahead with this massive idiocy of not supporting previous wheels.

    Oh well, I guess Gran Turismo is a game only for people who can afford to throw $250 of peripherals into the trash every four years :tdown:.

    I would prefer smoother frame rates than focusing on background detail that's out of my line of sight. I really don't think that at 125 Mph you'd notice as it only appears like that for a split second. Even in your image there's more than just the one row before the back row.
    The full picture (I know where I focus when I'm racing):

    Less than 1 second before:
    Capture w.JPG

    Less than 1 second after:
    Capture c.JPG

    And back on topic, I'm really liking the new Hud. Hopefully we get some customization, I don't need a track map of Nurburgring, or any other track map for that matter to know where I am at this stage of my sim racing career (but I understand others might).

    Sudden? The writing's been on the wall with this generation pretty much since it started in 2013. It's completely out of PD's hands too — though there are workarounds.

    I wonder if there is any tuning parts that can be used.

    I think availability will be determined on what mode you are racing in.
    I expect tuning parts such as diff, gearbox, suspension, etc. to be available for online lobbies.
    I'm also thinking tuned cars like that can be run in Arcade mode via your garage.
    Sport mode I'm less confident, which could be a shame, as tuning to suit your driving style and get the most out of the car seems a part of the process to me.
    Eg, I hope I can tune my car for daily race events, but perhaps official FIA events will be drive the car you're given.
    Time will tell though.

    I doubt we'll see stage 3 turbos, stage 3 weight reduction, or other major power to weight options available though, regardless of the mode.
    But other options such as ballast and power limiters seem on the cards to me.

    I agree with everyone here that HUD customization is a must, I'd also would prefer them go down the route of Driveclub and Horizon where you can turn on/off the HUD with a press of a button.

    It would be nice if PD add the car tyres to ''bumper'' cam view.

    I think having two maps in single race mode is redundant. One of the HUD elements they keep down below should be placed in the upper-left part of the screen.

    In total agreement that UDP apps really add to the experience, I get the feeling that PD "protect their code" and that they would frown on 3rd party's working with it, this is my impression obviously and based in no fact whatsoever and I hope I'm proved wrong.

    The other option is that PD create an app themselves, i would however like them to just open a UDP feed for all.

    The likes of crew chief are a great example of what can be done with it.
