GT6 Version Update (1.09)

75 Replies 9,033 Views Created 18-06-2014

An update for Gran Turismo 6 has been released. The following is a list of the main features introduced:

Vision Gran Turismo
The “Volkswagen GTI Roadster Vision Gran Turismo” has been released. Experience the dynamic all wheel drive supercar that inherits the DNA of the Volkswagen sports GTI philosophy.

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 Seasonal Event, available only for a limited time.

The “Volkswagen Vision GT” racing suit has been added to the [Special Outfits] page of the [Racing Gear] option within the [TUNING & SERVICING] section, accessible from "My Home". The suit can also be obtained from the corresponding Seasonal Events, available only for a limited time.

Red Bull Ring
The full and short track layouts of the "Red Bull Ring" have been added to the game. This is an ultra high speed circuit with long flat out sections and tricky tight corners in between. How you handle these tight turns will greatly affect your final lap time. In 2014, Formula 1 racing returned to this track after an 11 year hiatus; the circuit truly brings together the best of the old and the new.

New vehicles have been introduced
The following cars have been added to the [Dealerships] option within the [CARS] section of "My Home". You can also find those cars in the [Recommended Cars] option of the same section:

• GT-R NISMO GT3 Nissan GT Academy Team RJN ‘13
• Lexus IS F CCS-R ‘11
• Toyota TS030 Hybrid ‘12

Adjustments to the physics simulation model
The physics simulation model of “Gran Turismo 6” has been updated with the following changes:

(1) The dynamics of the car on surfaces with cornerstones and bumps have been improved;
(2) The effect of the tyre geometry has been changed (mainly for the "Camber Angle" option);
(3) The handling of some rear heavy cars has been improved;

The default settings of the tuning parts have also been adjusted to match the above changes.

Other cars adjustments
On the various Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X models, it is now possible to enable the [Active Steering] under the [Driving Options] of the "Quick Menu".

Other offline improvements and adjustments
- [Data Logger] can now be opened from the "Quick Menu" of Time Trial events. Please note that only limited features will be available in this way. Please refer to the online manual for more details.
- A [Reset to Default] option that returns the car to its showroom condition has been added under [Car Settings].
- Signal Starts are now enabled on tracks with signals.

Other online improvements and adjustments
- A countdown is now displayed on the bottom right part of the Open Lobby screen, showing the time before an event starts and the time when the track voting ends.
- The uploading time for both Drift Trials and Time Trials (Section) have been changed.

*Please note that after the patch is installed, there may be up to a 30 minutes additional install time which may differ from what is displayed on screen. Thank you for your patience, and please enjoy the great new content!

Re: GT6 Version Update (1.09)

Given that the previous update had 1,476 MB of data for version 1.08, version 1.09 is a lot smaller, at 598 MB of data.

Re: GT6 Version Update (1.09)

Woohoo! Great update! :smileyhappy: I'd go and test it all out. But I ain't awake yet. Didn't go to bed until around 6am.

 

New tracks, new cars, new tweaks and fixes. It's all good. Camber fix probably means the car set-up I just spent a week tweaking, will be useless now :smileytongue: But yay! :smileyhappy:

Re: GT6 Version Update (1.09)

Just had a quick go at the new cars and tracks.

 

Really like THe Red Bull Ring. Feels much better than in GRID 2.

 

The cars......

 

Already had the GT-R from the GT Academy. GT-R is one of my fave cars. So love this.

Lexus is orange! Enough said :smileyhappy: No really, it's a good car. Handles really well.

And ze Toyota. I do love my LMp cars. And was really routing for the mto win Le Mans this year. Another car that handles really well. Although I had it geared a bit long at the ring. Nice interior too. If a lil restricted.

 

The VW Vision GT car? So much grip. But some understeer on the slower corners. I actually thought I was driving a fan car. But really liked it.

 

Yet to check out the rest of the update. Will test some of that out later tonight.
