    Every update brings with it the possibility of undocumented changes to the game. Please post any undocumented changes you find in the game and I'll update the OP regularly to reflect any changes found. Please also make a concerted effort to verify these changes and not just report unconfirmed rumours. Be as specific and detailed as you can with the information including a brief description of the bug before it was fixed (if applicable) and how it was fixed. Poorly worded or cryptic posts will probably get passed over.

    This IS NOT a discussion thread about the pros and cons of the update or anything else other than undocumented changes in the update. Confine those to the appropriate thread please.

    New bugs, glitches, errors etc. should be recorded here:
    GT6 :Glitches and Errors thread (Read first Post)

    Undocumented Changes
    • Sneak peak at GTAcademy Final Round
    • 2014 GT Academy final round practice thread
    • Some people reporting positive changes to the AI, you'll have to judge for yourself.
    • There's a new bug where the "NEW" tag comes up in the car dealerships without a new car being present.
    • A bug in which tire wear and handling were affected after a pit stop seems to be corrected.
    • Smoke, snow, dust, water spray etc. much improved and no longer pixellated. This reverses a previous update which seemed to induce pixellation in these effects in favour of improved framerates.
    • Bug is gone where races didn't count as wins when doing the Vettel races.
    • Fixed a bug where you couldn't hear the Subaru BRZ (and other cars) engine sound in chase cam.
    • Overall best lap time is now displayed during a race as opposed to just in practice.
    • Fixed the bug with the Arta Gariya base model and Elise 111R Race Car where painting the wheels didn't actually change the colour. This bug persists with the Dodge Challenger R/T Race Car '70
    • Three new cars revealed for possible future release HERE
      Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 Nissan GT Academy Team RJN '13 Pic
      Nissan GT-R Black edition (GT Academy 2014) Pic
      Mitsubishi XR-PHEV EVOLUTION Vision Gran Turismo Possible Pic
    • The low fuel gauge warning light turns on when it hits the red-mark now instead of just with one litre remaining as before.
    • From the documented change When [Grid Start with False Start Check] is selected in [Race Settings], signal lights will be displayed as start indicators, the time between lights out and go varies from race to race, it's not a fixed interval. Test Results
    • The option to "view data" (accel, braking, splits etc) on the screen used to have "display all" at the bottom of the list of available choices. It is now at the top of the list
    • When driving through the pits you can no longer look backwards.
    • Improvements to blur rendering in photomode as suggested HERE
    • Other improvements to blur rendering HERE
    • Ghosts used for a Licences, Missions, Time trials, Solo runs, Seasonals etc. are now persistent through manual restarts.
    • After exiting a race and hitting "retry" you are now prompted with "yes/no" option.
    • The Keyboard Switching Feature has works like THIS and THIS
    • Cars flashing high beams now reflect off of walls and other features.
    • Replay music continues to play while taking pictures now.
    • An issue with the start/finish line in Mission Race IB-1 is now Fixed
    • Amuse S2000 GT1 '04's turbos have been fixed to add power instead of removing it (used to lower pp & torque too).
    • Pit crews no longer visible in rear view mirror
    • New barrier at Goodwood
    Documented Changes
    Vision Gran Turismo

    The “BMW Vision Gran Turismo” has been released. Experience the modern road racer created by the BMW design team, resurrecting the excitement and passion of 1970’s touring cars in present day form.

    After the update has been installed, the car can be purchased from the [Vision GT] option within the [CARS] section in "My Home". Alternatively, it is also possible to obtain the car by completing a lap (regardless of the lap time) in the new BMW Seasonal Event, available only for a limited time.

    Adjustments to the Open Lobby

    - [Endurance Race] has been added to the [Room Mode] option within [Basic Settings] of the Event Settings screen.

    - [Tire Wear/Fuel Consumption] has been added to [Time Trial Settings] options ("OFF", "Normal", "Fast" or "Very Fast" can be selected)

    - Choice of [Start Type] has been added to the [Race Settings] for Qualifier, Time Trial, and Drift Trial modes. You can now select from [Final Corner Start] or [Pit Start].

    - When [Grid Start with False Start Check] is selected in [Race Settings], signal lights will be displayed as start indicators.

    New features added to "Replay" and "Watch Race" modes

    - Button controls can now be used to: Switch between "Full View" and "Live Timing"; to turn the "Driver List Display" ON/OFF; to switch the "Information Display" and to change the target car.

    - The "Keyboard Switching Feature" has been added. A USB keyboard can be used to switch the "Information Display" and to change the view.

    For more details on each of the above features, please refer to the online manual on gran-turismo.com.

    If "Pit bug" is really gone, it should warant a completely new thread due to its overall importance and stir that bug caused in previous months

    It is by far the most single improvement so far from gameplay-side, so I think it should be discussed in the separate thread completely

    This is DAMN AWESOME but I have a question...
    Is the framerate ok? I'm asking, because if you remember, in 1.06 PD decreased the smoke quality to improve the framerate.

    In the race or just in practice in an online room?

    It was implemented in 1.06 for when practising, but never in the race itself

    I can also confirm that the race/wins bug for the Red Bull X Challenge has finally been fixed. Now my win/race ratio won't have to take hits anymore after grinding. :sly:

    Yep, someone should test this (fastest lap in the race?). I would right now, if the in-game update didnt take that much long to install...

    Seems that framerate is back to where it originally was. So better smoke quality, lower framerate

    I'm happy to say that the Subaru BRZ doesn't sound like air anymore. I thank PD so much for that. :D

    I never paid much attention to the HUD RPM gauge. Can we get some more details on this?

    During update 1.06, you couldn't hear its engine sound in chase cam. And if you upgrade the transmission, you hear more from that also.

    O_O Are you 100% sure of this ? I haven't updated yet and only drift (on Comfort Hards). In what way is it smoother ?
    GT5 smoother ?
