    It's that time again for GT5 fans, it's another possibly useless and worthless update. The whole GT5 community has been crying for new tracks and our dreams have come true.... up to a point. There will be a one new "fantasy" track called Route X and that's it, with regards to the patch the rumours are that the patch will contain the following: New themes for My Home in GT Mode. An option for tire wearing in Pit Strategy (B-spec). Simulates regenerative braking on electric cars. Chaparral 2J Race Car ’70: Fan down force option. Fixed unintended pit stop error in the final lap of a B-spec race. 12 new colors and 12 new wall papers for My home. Electric cars run slowly without applying acceleration. Regenerative braking affects the cruising distance.
    There will also be a new Car pack which will include the following: Nissan Leaf '11, Aston Martin V12 Vantage 2010, Volkswagen Beetle 1200 1966, Jaguar XJR-9 LM Racecar 1988, Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 2011 and Mini Cooper S Countryman (R60) 2011

    EDIT: The Update will be available on the 18th January
     
  2. The Car Pack isn't too bad.

    However, Route X will probably be rubbish (WE WANTED REAL TRACKS) and no one gives a damn about a few more background colours.

    Personally i've looking forward the car pack, i've got a feeling the adventador will look amazing and go like the clappers. but with regards to the Route X i agree fully it probably some useless track which someone at PD has gone WOW look how boring and useless this track is lets put in an update. The only thing i dont understand why the sudden interest for electric cars who uses them?
     
  4. One of the cars in the car pack is a Nissan(hmm, I wonder why;)), do we need the Jag? We already have the '89 XJR-9 on the game. New track sounds good, but is it good? I have a feeling it could be a track that resembles Complex String from GT3(if it is, it's good), but we won't know until it gets released.

    Regarding the new track by how it's being described is an oval.... Comon PD wake up we don't want ovals we want Real Life tracks.... how hard can it be?

    It has been confirmed that Route X is an Oval, car park 3 and the Oval will be available as a single pack which will be called "speed test pack". Will ever get some more real life tracks?
     
  7. [sarcasm]
    YAY. AN OVAL. I'M SO EXCTIED. MAYBE IT'S THE TEST COURSE. I LOVE THE TEST COURSE
    [/sarcasm]

    If only I could show sarcasm online...:rolleyes:

    Mod Edit: Fixed

    I know so am I, I can't wait until the track is available so i can say how amazing it would be if they didn't even bother adding into the game.
     
  9. I think my opinions on this kind of patch 'content' is well known enough for me not to have to repeat it again. 'Nuff said.

    There are still a couple of things that are being updated fixed and most probaly then broken are regarding the electric cars espically the "patch" where electric cars run without the acllerator being pressed, my question is why has it taken over a year find that car can practially drive itself? Some people may think I might overreacting over this, but I am starting to get extremely annoyed these updates, maybe it is tome PD sat down do some proper work for example improve their online services but instead they make oval tracks which are a complete waste of time.. That's my moan for day out the way :)

  11. Which is more important ?

    [sarcasm] A new oval track, or being able to run an online league ?

    Really tough question... Can't make up my mind [/sarcasm]

    PS: Now I'm adding my own sarcasm quotes.

    I see your point Bradley, the one of the main issues we have with PD is the fact that they tight lipped that they don't tell us when an update is coming out and when it does come out they don't tell us why they have done the update but they do partially tell us what they have done.
     
  13. Not only do PD have to make the online mode much better, but actually get/create a decent track instead of an oval which we do not need as we already have Daytona and Indy; I'd rather have Valencia(the one named after the late 50cc GP champion)on GT5 than a new oval or bring back some of the classic tracks like Red Rock Valley and Grindelwald. Plus, I really do not see the point of that Countryman being in the game either. What my point really is is this: WE DO NOT NEED AN OVAL :mad:

    Route X will be extremely similar to Top Speed test track from previous GT's
     
  15. Oh whoopey-doo.
     
  16. Yay, mediocrity in GT5
     
  17. Actually, looks like it will be a 30km oval, with a 12km straight. No comments about that.
     
  18. The track I hated most in GT Series = Test Course.

    Reason = Holding down "X" (Accelerate) for 20 minutes in a race is boring and painful.

    No point of having "Route X". If a top speed test is needed, go to Indy, Daytona or that really long Special Stage one.

    12k? too long simple as.... I might a top speed test for my Subaru 360.... top speed of 40mph :)
     
  20. I don't know where you got the idea that the track/cars were going to be part of the update, because they are not.

    The track is part of a 'Speed Test DLC' which goes on sale tomorrow for almost £5. Rip off.

    The cars are part of the third car DLC, also for almost £5. Rip off.

    The actual update itself only does the following and is available right now:

    Absolutely, positively, inexcusably worthless.
