The greatest feature that we haven’t seen in AAA racing titles has finally arrived!!! Now you can make your own race track and race it on Gran Turismo 6!!!
Now I can turn my hair-drawn racing circuits (I have two coming up) into a real, driveable thing!!!
I think this is a redeeming feature, until they take it worldwide, that is.
■GT6 Track Path Editor:
The GT6 Track Path Editor is an application for PlayStation®3 title Gran Turismo 6 that enables the user to create his or her own drivable course. The app allows you to choose the scenery of your choice, as well as letting you chart your own driving path—it even lets you trace maps or driving paths of real life routes. There’s also a function to include a variety of course-related objects into your custom track such as curbing. Once the course is completed, it can be transferred to Gran Turismo 6 and sampled in Arcade Mode, Open Lobby, and in your Communities. In order to drive the completed tracks, you must have a PlayStation®3 console connected to the internet, a copy of Gran Turismo 6, and the SEN (Sony Entertainment Network) account you are using for Gran Turismo 6.
■Description of Features
The following steps describe the course data creation process of the Track Path Editor:
1: Select a Theme
Select the geography/scenery of the course from four different themes.
2: Layout Mode
Chart the course line that will be the route for the road surface. You can also set the road width and corner bank angles.
3: Item Mode
Place trees, billboards and other items along the course.
4: Curbing Mode
You can place curbing along the course line. (*This mode may not be available in some cases.)
Export the created course data to Gran Turismo 6.
6: Test Drive
Test drive the created track using the Gran Turismo 6’s “Track Path Importer“ tool, and save as a user generated track.
Other improvements and adjustments
– Penalties have been disabled in “Free Run” mode.
– With the addition of the “GT6 Track Path Editor”, the maximum length of best lap replays that can be loaded in the Data Logger has been set to 20 minutes.
– The engine sounds of certain cars have been improved.
Now how about Forza? If they can come up with something like this, but for PC and Surface, I’ll have one.
