I saw the NYC and George V Paris maps in the "Screenshot" section of this website. Has anyone found a similar map for Hong Kong, Seoul, Seattle, and any other real life city tracks?

....

hong kong, seoul, seattle, are all orginial map of GT...

not real.
But they are based off real roads in those citys.

and you can make out the GT tracks from real maps.
 
I am pretty sure the Seattle track is made up of real roads. I saw a Seattle map once when GT3 came out....

I also think the Seoul track is real as it has that old temple thing in it.
 
I got a bit of a pleasant surprise when I saw that the hotel I stayed in (The Wellington) was at the 90 right at the end of the back straight parallel to the main straight. :)

My girlfriend used to live in france. I showed her the George V and opera tracks, and while I was going around Opera, she was able to recognize a Coffee shop near the opera house that she had eaten at, and the very blurry sign even had the correct name! According to her, the realism is impressive, but some things are missing, like the street signs, etc...
 
so the you can make out where you race in gt4 when your actually on the road in real life would you see the same shops and restaurants

Every bump on the Nurb are recreated, the only downfall is the light green, in real life the Nurb is a very darkish green.

how close to reality is Nurburgring, if any of you have actually driven on it.

once you've finished the Pro events at the end when they show the credits, it shows on the right hand side of the screen a video of the actual track. looks pretty dang close if you ask me but others might have their own opinions? since I've never seen or been near the real deal, when others may have?
 
Route 246 in Tokyo is as real as it gets. See my website:

http://www.sotobori.com/route246b/index.htm

I've walked that course twice in total but tons of times for parts of it, especially the main straight (Aoyama Dori - Route 246) and the area around the stadiums.

The long back straight after Meiji Kinenkan (the straight that has the trees planted on both sides) is a little more realistic in GT4 than it was in GT3, especially the downhill jog at the end of the straight.

See the following for some familiar stuff on Route 246:

I live near seattle and it is possible to go down there and drive the actual track. PD did a great job of actually using the real roads to make out a track there.
 
My family and I ate at the Howard Johnson's in the Times Square Photo Travel...

This may be my only opportunity to brag about that. I'll take it.

LOL :D

I've been to Assisi in Italy and knowing that GT4 was to use the streets in a circuit (Aria), I had
a good walk around. It's an impressive likeness and captures the steep narrow streets very well.

You can trace the circuit on this map...

Im relatively sure that video with the yellow 350z is in game, not real however their seemed to be too tracks, one on the right and one on the left so I think the right one is the real life one.
 
there's a big nerdy discussion in one of the gt3 faqs on gamefaqs.com which tries to ascertain how real special stage route 5 and route 11 are. they figure out route 5, but 11 is on toll roads with no stopping bays so would be hard to see in real life. it would be quite interesting if one lived in japan

that seattle thread is amazing, that guy really is obsessed with it. still, that's cool enough to print as a poster, PD should do something like that for all the city tracks

how close to reality is Nurburgring, if any of you have actually driven on it.

Recently saw a video of Hans Stuck doing a lap of the old and new Ring. He was driving a BMW M3 GTR. The accuracy is incredible....right down to the color changes in the pavement. It certainly helped me in learning how to drive the Ring in GT4.
 
The accuracy of the 'Ring (and LeMans) has made me appreciate the races there.
I can't imagine 24 hours at either track.

GT4 may catapult NurburgRing as one of the most popular tracks in the world.

For anyone interested its here: http://www.godoftheinternet.com/m3_gtr_nurburgring.wmv

I know there's a post somewhere else in GTP with this but I thought it worth adding hree cos its well worth a watch....
It might be fun doing it in GT but it's scary in real life!

Thanks, that is PERFECT! I would love to walk the entire R246 just as you did. Very nice job!

Does anyone have a less intensive map of Seattle? Can anyone outline the Assisi course in the map linked a few posts above?

Isn't Cote d'Azur a real track too? I was playing some Formula 1 super nintendo game(Formula 1 World Championship Edition I think) on my computer, and I think I was driving on Monaco and the map looked exactly like the map of Cote d'Azur.
