Does anyone know how to set throttle for a linear response?
The throttle input is too sensitive from 50% to 100%. In these conditions it is very difficult to control a FR car, where we need less sensitivity in that range of throttle.
I would like to know why GT Sport does not offer a linear acceleration experience, as it is in several real race categories, for example: F1, Nascar, Indy, GT1, GT2, GT3, GT4.
Does anyone know why?
Could a community rep forward this to the dev team? It is such an odd departure from literally every other sim out there.
This is something that's been bugging me for ages with GT games. Using a standard DS4 controller it's noticeable too.
The braking is linear and good, but the throttle isn't; using the L2 and R2 triggers respectively.
The triggers respond differently (have different resulting amounts of braking and throttle in-game) through their ranges of movement.
Don't understand why it's been like this and wish it'd get fixed.
I want to add my two cents about this matter.
I transitioned from GT6 to GT Sport back in March. Immediately, I sensed something was off with the throttle response but I wasn't sure what exactly. After some searching, I found an old thread in the GT Planet forums that helped explain the situation. In short, no matter what wheel and pedal set you're using, if you keep an eye on the in-game throttle bar and apply different amount of travel on the gas pedal, you may find out how much power you believe you're applying is not actually what you are getting in the game. A few have done more proper tests but my eye test shows these approximate results:
25% pedal travel - 12.5% throttle
50% pedal travel - 25.0% throttle
75% pedal travel - 50.0% throttle
In all prior Gran Turismos and every other racing game I can recall, the amount one pushes on the gas pedal is around the same amount of acceleration you would get in the game.
Now, the big question is why something like this matters. I believe this type of mapping is the root of many underlying problems in GT Sport. These include:
1. Making the more powerful cars more difficult to drive: The way the throttle is mapped, it's too easy to apply power too fast resulting in a spin. It may not be as much an issue for highly skilled drivers but can make it a frustrating experience for the majority of people playing this game. Even if they try to adjust, then they are going rather slow off the corner which leads into the second point.
2. Incidents at mid-corner and exit: If someone struggles apply power smoothly, they're more likely to be slow off the apex until they straighten up their car. I have noticed multiple times in races that these type of drivers end up getting hit by behind by a faster driver and then get blamed for not accelerating at all. Even if there's no contact, the slower driver may realize the great disparity and become frustrated at their own performance. This happened with me the first few weeks playing the game and others had mentioned similar sentiments once I informed them of this issue.
3. Tire wear: Smoother power delivery means better tire management during a race, especially with the rear tires. With the current throttle map, it's difficult to modulate throttle input to compensate for tire degradation. This is a particular issue with the mid-engined cars and I believe not having more finite control exarcerbates the issues those cars already have.
I've tried to grasp the logic in making this change but it is my opinion that this causes more problems than it solves.
I support this.
I thought I really suck at this game at first but looking into it i can finally blame my slower times on the tool when I changed to play with g29 instead of ds4 on the throttle majority of my spinouts happen because ''you guessed it!'' tail spinning out. My all time favourite is 911rsr on ds4 with tcs=2 it was amazing car now on g29 with tcs=1 it's uncontrollable at low speeds. ''but wait there is more'' Any other +500hp AWD/4WD car is easier to drive but i do feel the kick when pushing the throttle above 80%
Just got my T300 and noticed the non-linear gas pedal, while putting in my first laps with the wheel. Never read about it before, so it's a bit upsetting.
Even more upsetting, when one reads that this issue wasn't there from the start with the Beta, but got introduced in the final version.
And despite the voice of the community about this being an issue, it hasn't been adressed, yet. And probably, it never will be, because they probably introduced this on purpose? Whatever that may be :(
My guess to the why would be, to "help" people be better drivers, anticipating how people generally react and the callibrating the throttle response accordingly. The problem of course is, they're doing the opposite.@HobbinHood
I'm pretty sure I noticed it in the beta@HobbinHood
PD doesn't have a community representative yet. I doubt they hang out on forums lol@el-ve
Who started this thread..?
Who is this mystery person with the “Dev” badge.. 🤔
Does PD have any acknowledgement of the pedal linearity problem in GT sport? For a sim game that should be one of the priorities. Is it a hard to change?@el-ve
I don't really mind the current throttle, as no street car or race car today has a completely linear throttle. But I would like to see the throttle curve to be adjustable in GT Sport.
The thing is a lot of cars these days have several throttle curves and the more sportier settings are the opposite to what we have. If you look at the pictures below from an Clio 220 Trophy what we have is closest to the 'snow' or 'progressive' setting.
