This should make alot of people happy, Kaz confirming there will be body mods in GT5 (note this was an interview for GTHD)

IGN: What kind of customization will we be able to see in Gran Turismo HD? Will we be able to see a deeper level of customization than what has been seen in previous GT games? Like, will we be able to tune the aero parts of the car and add vinyls? Or will this newest GT continue to focus mainly on engine and suspension tuning?

Kazunori: (Brings up GT HD's car-select screen and selects a Skyline - which just so happens to fill up the entire screen.) We may not be able to provide this immediately off the bat when we launch, but the cars we are designing/modeling for PS3... you see that line separating the bumper from the body? That (bumper) comes off. Again, previously a car model in GT 4, it was one skin. Now you can take parts off, because the cars are made up of components. So for this Skyline, for instance, you can take off the front bumper and replace it with something else.

IGN: Is the plan to get licensed aero kits like C-West and Mugen? Or will all the aero kits be GT-original designs?

Kazunori: It would be a combination of both, actually.

New varities of racing that he's thinking about as well as graphic touches

IGN: You mentioned your love for Le Mans and Formula 1. Previous GT games have had an unlockable F1-style car, but no real F1-style race. Will we be seeing more Le Mans-style and F1 cars in GT HD?

Kazunori: My goal is to try to expand even further than where we are now... I'd like to include vehicles like the midget race cars...

IGN: Really? I bet no one would have thought you'd want to include midget race cars in the GT series... Speaking of cars that go sideways, previous GT games have featured real-life D1 cars. I guess that this is more of a PS3 technical question, but many of today's D1 cars use chrome/reflective vinyl graphics. Do you think that the PS3 will be able to accurately replicate these chrome graphics?

Kazunori: Yes. PS3 should allow for that.

About his car collection

IGN: Last thing we can think of... we know you're a huge car nut. We know all about your Ford GT - especially as the Ford people always drop your name when we talk with them...

Kazunori: I'm waiting on my second GT, actually...

IGN: A second one? Wow! We also know that you have an EVO 5... What other cars do you have in your personal collection? And what are you hoping to buy next?

Kazunori: I have a 350Z. It's a high-tune machine, is naturally-aspirated and puts out 350 horsepower. It's not bad.

IGN: No. Not bad at all.

Kazunori: I have an S2000, it a full racing car. It has a full carbon fiber body - the works. I also have a Mercedes AMG SL55, Porsche GT3...

And about the next car he wants and Nissan

IGN: That's quite a car collection. So what's the next vehicle you'd like to add to your garage?

Kazunori: I'm having a hard time choosing. I'm still waiting for that second GT, but after that I'd have to say the new Nissan GT-R.

IGN: Have you had a chance to drive the new GT-R yet?

Kazunori: Not yet.

IGN: Really? We hear that you get all of this top-level access to all these cars. We figured you'd have already driven the car by now.

Kazunori: I'm very close with the people who develop the car, so I do get the opportunity to talk with them and I do get input.

In the quote it's also confirmed that a goal of 300-600fps physics sampling would be beneficial for GT 5. The original Forza had 240fps physics sampling. Forza 2 has 360fps physics sampling. It does make a difference. It does make a difference, that's been now verified by both Turn 10 and Polyphony Digital.

GT HD has the best car models and lighting. Amazing. Forza and especially Forza 2 have focused on physics and car handling. Granted the graphics haven't been as good. Especially with GT 4's 60fps when Forza had only 30fps. Forza 2 has upped graphics to 60fps and physics to 360 fps.

Both are good games. Give credit where credit it due.

I now take back my taking back of the comment until proven... :) I took my comment about 60fps physics in GT 4 back, because I couldn't prove it. I took the high road. You should take back your comment about me too. I didn't deserve your "waste of time" comment.

The quote was posted earlier with Kaz confirming that it does run at 60fps physics, Kaz says they're looking into 300-600 fps physics for GT5.

Thanks SolidSnakex. I was starting the think it was urban legend. I hadn't been asked to prove it before, but had seen many posts about the comparison. When I tried to Google it, yesterday I had a hell of a time finding it anywhere.

Glad to know, I wasn't quoting an urban legend. :)

I think with the PS3's potential for physics calculations, anything is possible with GT 5. I'd love to see 600fps physics sampling and a solid physics model. If PD can keep the current level of graphics and car modeling while upping the physics model and allowing for 20 cars online compared to Forza 2's 8, they could raise the bar.

I'm skeptical, but if they have enough time with the PS3, they may be able to pull it off. I hope so, it would be the killer app for the PS3 and I'd buy one in a heartbeat to get the best console sim. Competition is good for gamers. I want the bar to be raised with each new version. :)

I thought my expecations for GT5 were high. 20 cars on track at that detail? I'm thinkign they'll do 12 at the most. The game isn't releasing until sometime next year so they've got plenty of time to get everything in the game. They know they've got alot of expectations to meet.

yeah I think it will have about 12 cars on screen but it really depends how beautiful the environments look.

All it needs is a good LOD system if they nail that they could have 20 cars on screen but I think the final count will be about 12 - 15 cars

Yeah, I'd be fine with 12, but 20 would be better. Especially, for tournaments or car club races where you might have more well behaved racers. 20 increases the odds or some drivers not behaving, but if you're fast enough, they get left behind fairly soon in most races. If they have dedicated servers or if netcode and the average internet bandwidth improves in 1-2 years, they could still do 20 online. PC sims have been doing this for years.

PD mentioned GT 5 would have 20 cars at E3 2005, so I believe that was their target. Hope they make it, but I could live with less if they get some of the other things right.

I want a field of 20 cars. I won't fret if it's at least 12 (14-15 seems to be the standard set by RR7 and MS), but I want 20. I'm greedy. :D PEACE.

Just goes to show how far the track in GTHD is behind the cars. The main thing needed is more varied and realistic lighting and better textures.

Textures and lighting are completely fine imo. Par for the course actually. The thing about the tracks is that they feel empty. I would suggest more polygons rather than better textures/lighting. And it's only one track so far, so varied lighting is kinda moot until we see more tracks, hopefully with dynamic lighting changes (say if you wanted to race at night, mid-day, or in the morning on the same track).

Yes. Probably a cubemap or the same thing that is going on in that rearview mirror.

EDIT: Probably to test the shader, the shot is from the modeling program not the game itself.

Do they have wireframe data from the manufacturers? If so I wonder if this will make it easier for them. I've never seen the inside of a Lancer, or a skyline for that matter, I wonder how similar the inside is from year to year.

Yes they get them directly from the the manufacturers, they also do traditional modeling and also scan real cars in with lasers.

btw, recently noticed that we have the 2.0 version in europe (and I think we had it from day 1), and when I browsed the japanese and US PSstores, it's only 1.2.

They're generating plenty of interest on the web w/o it (this thread is proof of that). Plus the game is so far out as far as release goes that they need a slow burn.
