    Coffee breaks

    It could also be a drift track.
    It would be amazing having 16 people in a lobby drifting with the upcoming 370Z and some other drift cars.

    I would like to see PD allow players to design their own gymkhana and drift courses with basic cones and plastic barriers

    Probably will be used in additional Mission races, similar to the Northern Isle Infield events.

    Otherwise those skid pad will be handy for suspension/camber tuning ;)

    On Streets of Willow, you can get in the parking lot next to the pit entry and drift as much as you want. It’s pretty big.

    It might be the Horse Thief Mile but I believe it’s Streets of Willow.

    Yep, Street's of Willow.


    IOF_RACING17 has a cool drift video where he goes to this track (6m20seg):

    I would like to see more kart tracks because I find them both fun and relaxing to play :D

    Just look at @zzz_pt post! (Obrigado)

    I thought there was a wall but I guess it’s only a bunch of cones haha! And it’s not a parking lot haha Sunday morning in Canada :rolleyes:

    I amazed that no racing game I know of has ever had an autocross course editor like this. How hard would it be to let players arrange cones on a flat parking lot? GT6 wouldn't even let us drive on the GT Arena infield outside of the coffee breaks. It's so frustrating to have great tools in the game that are walled off from players.

    I'm 99% sure there was a wall there in GTS... Either they removed it or I'm insane.

    Ok so either we’re both insane or they removed it. I’m sure there was a wall last time I tried to drift there...

    At this rate,it'll be 2021 before Gran Turismo Sport weights in at around the same as Gran Turismo 6
    in terms of tracks and other things that are missing from GTS
    Don't get me wrong, I still think GTSport is the best GT to date :):tup:

    If you set the track rules to none and set not to recover car on track, you can basicly drive wherever you want. Whitin track layout of course.

    It's been 1 year and this course hasn't arrived?

    I wish they would do a track editor in the kart complex. It would require way less resources to create and it would allow the community to build up and support online kart racing without PD having to constantly push out content. Kart racing in game is awesome but so few tracks feel right in the kart.

    It could be cut content. It won’t have been the first time remnants of unfinished content made it into the game, the Route X Infield screens and track map were one of the biggest mysteries of GT6, and we never learned anything more than what people could find in the code.

    Or, it could still be coming, just waiting to come at the correct time. It’s purpose seems to be either some sort of test location, or a map for Gymkhama-type events, which would seem to either be part of a drift expansion, or an expansion of the original campaign mode (licenses and missions).

    We know Chris Forsbergs’s 370Z is supposed to arrive at some point (maybe with the NI infield too), so it could be included withthat, or, perhaps there will be a major Spec II update later on in GTS’s life that expands on a lot of the (mostly) untouched base content?

    What is this? A Gymkhana?

    Another one was found in files way back.

    TCRF has this image
    [​IMG]

    TCRF is basically a goldmine, especially for GT2. There is a thumbnail for Evora and Elise. Here is the Elise one.

    Because of CoVid, I believe that is the reason why updates will be rare, or no at all this year. Basically measures taken reduce time for development. Maybe updates will be delayed, or they will be scrapped totally (besides VGTs), to make way for whatever next title on PS5 will be.

    That's definitely just a real life picture of a skid pan located somewhere in Japan.

    No. As you can see at the top of this page, there's an image with its course logo just like the other course images seen in Discover mode.

    It was meant to be a joke at how GT's sceneries looked realistic but I probably worded that out wrong. Moving on...

    Augh, I was kinda stupid...
    Actually when I saw the pictures on the post #20, I had been thinking that they're real photos for longer than 30 seconds.
    But such course layout doesn't exist in real life, then I barely noticed that they're from Gran Turismo! (Still don't know where they're from, though)
