The latest update for Gran Turismo Sport, version 1.64, is now with us, and as expected it lands very firmly on the housekeeping side of things. It weighs in at a mere 158MB, which rather hints at a small selection of changes rather than oodles of content.
It seems that the primary purpose for the update is a bug with the yellow flag system in Sport Mode. A handful of GTPlanet users have recently noted that they’ve received penalties in Sport Mode for overtaking under yellow flags but not been aware of the flags, and it would seem that this issue is connected to the bug as reported in the patch notes.
There’s one other change alongside this, which centers on the Gr.4 Balance of Performance. That recently was the subject of a larger update, just ahead of the current FIA Exhibition Series, but there’s another small update today.
Only three cars are affected, with the Jaguar F-Type, Lexus RC F, and McLaren 650S all seeing their power drop by 1%, to 97%, 95%, and 93% respectively. While not a major change, the Jaguar in particular has been a good choice on more open circuits and this will likely have an effect on this weekend’s Manufacturer Series race at Mount Panorama.
It remains to be seen if there are any other under-the-hood changes, and the update is rather light on its feet, but if there is, the GTPlanet community will pick them out in due course.
