Definitely look forward to Watkins Glen International. That said I wish do wish they would address the pop ins and the audio cut out after pits looking back.

I think I'll just wait a year to play this game and see what content it has.

Not a big fan of going back to a single player game for little content updates, would rather have a BIGGER PACKAGE (hehe) to play through.

I'm so hyped for this. Haven't got to play recently with summer grad school classes taking up most of my time. I will definitely make time for this though. I'm guessing there'll be a Gr.3 race at Watkins next week.

In the future I would also like to see a one-make race on the long course with a historic (mid 70s or 80s) F1 car. The F1500T from GT Sport would've worked well but it isn't in GT7 for some reason...

I'd prefer some quality of life menu controls, directories, and load times.

It's cumbersome how many menus we have to go through just to get to a general section. It's also interesting how it takes a couple seconds to enter and exit the world circuit section. The game is not take advantage of the fast loading capabilities of the PS5 and I'm guessing it's because it's being held back by the PS4 versions design.

Simply solution. Just make all the general sections selectable in a list or selection wheel, for swift navigation.

Also: Please stop frequently changing the menu music when we go to different sections (excluding pre-race menus). I understand why they did it, but it's annoying when i can't enjoy the current soundtrack when ding whatever in the menus.

The F1500T has been there since day 1, it costs a million credits in brand central. It's also a prize car I believe for Golding the license tests.
 
Always glad for a new track. Cars whatever since i still have to "buy" them in order to use them. I hope they bring more imaginary tracks from the past games as well.

get a ps5
Um... I'm talking exactly about the PS5 version.

I was speculating that the reason it takes a couple seconds to load into and out of the general menus (World Circuits / Tuning Shop) is because this game is based on the PS4s version designs.

I won't pretend that the load times taking longer to load the menus vs loading a track is somehow fine. It doesn't make sense.

Nah that is still fine. Try changing the color fo your car. Now that is some BS, i dont know who thought it was a good idea to go through 3 menues just to change the color for your car and even worse...its not shown as an example on the car you want the wrap on but a default random car.....THEN you have to go into livery editor and FIND the color you just bought lol.

Agreed. Very obtuse way to apply the colour. I was confused the first time I bought paint!

3. World Circuits
 - The following new events have been added to 'World Circuits':

Now watch the new track come with a single or maybe 2 new events, that'd be hilarious.

Why do they keep drip feeding us events? You'd think it'd be the easier thing to add to the game

If you mean how it went back to the main menu if you tried to exit one of the three sub menus from "GT-Auto" than this was fixed with one of the last updates.
We had a portion of the track in GT2 and it was a hidden track in GT5 (couldn’t be accessed by normal means, had very outdated textures). We’ve not had the track feature in the series since then, sadly



GT Auto? They fixed that with last months update, it takes you back to the sub-menu instead of spitting you back out into the world map

No I meant Tuning Shop, GT Auto is for detailing.

Might be something I exclusively experience.. You change the pages with L1/R1, but I'm defaulting to sircle button. I on the .15 patch.

Well, by the sound previous replies, it seems like it's the same issue that was resolved(?) with GT Auto.. Was on the latest patch as of the time of my first post.

Got a race in at Watkins Glen International. The 800 one. Fun times, not as many annoying pop ins as le mans and other tracks in this game. Audio cut out after pit is still there. Going to do the cafe stuff later today.

I never experienced this to be honest. Is it gone completely or out of sync? How much out of sync?
Barely cuts out sound for half a second when I press back on dpad. Gets slightly more jarring further as you continue race afterwards. Only bothers me because I know it's there even though I don't even look back much. Like the pop ins, I find the annoying by the fact that I played the game so much that im more prone to noticing them no but I can't remember them being there like that from the beginning. So I don't know if was always like that.

Yeah seriously I dont understand why it’s such a convoluted process for such a simple thing

If only I could finish the last cafe menu from the previous update… 😭
Yeah that one is easily the toughest one so far. I just about managed to get first in suzuka using a super formula with racing hards and setting the fuel map to 6 so i don't have to pit. Bloody ai miyazono and hizal never pit and they start right at the top of the pack so it becomes a ballache catching up to them.

Yes, the pit stop kills me. I’m using the Audi VGT and I finished 4th yesterday on the Daytona! I need to tweak the fuel map then.

The new menus are pretty bad, one gives you a rally car (good), the other 2 just give you roulette spins (bad)

...also no actual racing involved, you just buy cars to fill out the menu book so you are essentially spending credits to get roulette spins. Needless to say I suffered a net loss

But the new track is pretty nice
