    Pretty nice game, I am impressed but at this moment it is impossible to log in, server problems which is understandable, can you imagin the quantity of people trying to get on at this time ? It must be an insane number. But I was able to play earlier today and I like what I experienced. Graphics are great. I could not get the VR option to work.

    In the present Demo/Beta, it says that up to 1 million MM will be carried over to the full game next week, as incentive to get people to allow PD to pre-stress test the servers.

    That seems to imply the "cash." But MM seems to say the Mileage exchange. That is how many are interpreting it.

    A million cash is doable (unless you get hit by a medical problem in the middle...) but I see no way at all ANYONE can get anywhere close to that in the Mileage exchange...

    Am I wrong? Can anyone say that the Mileage exchange figure can get even within an order of magnitude of nearing a million?

    I am at 723k-ish on cash. My mileage exchange sits at 9,800...Now, I could buy most of the stuff in the exchange marketplace, including both the "This is the ONLY way to get these cars" cars. A million would be vast overkill, to say the least.

    I'd love to keep the 9,800, maybe we'll keep it too, but I'm still betting the MM means the "cash", not the exchange reward credits... But just maybe, we'll keep more than just the cash. Though just the cash would be an unprecedented change over the past...

    And good news. The Beta/Demo is being extended by a day. Ends tomorrow instead of today...

    GT Sport is downloading on my PS4 right now. 54 GB. You might want to start your console to avoid the rush tomorrow.

    I have been rather impressed with the game so far. I wish there was some sort of championship offline, but I'm happy with what we have for now.

    Quite the impressive graphics! Nice!

    I've been out of the loop lately, just booted up my ps4 in forever and saw people in gran turismo sport. When did it release?

    What are peoples thoughts on the online sport mode? fun? good experiences? good car/track selection?

    Good experience so far. The system seems to be pretty much working as far as keeping racing good and clean.

    Wouldn't mind if they had more than three races cycling, but I'm satisfied. Every race has been enjoyable. Most of my problems have been mine, not caused by others, mostly, anyway.

    YMMV, but try them out and see what -you- think.

    That's a test I ran for something. Let me explain.

    The Gr.X races are all one-make, it seems, which makes sense. A pretty disparate group of cars, most could not necessarily race with anything else. And most of them are pretty expensive, like a million each. Not exactly a pushover to come up with if you want to buy a bunch of them.

    I doubt anyone drives 24/7. Hope not, anyway. So, why not buy those VGT cars with cash you don't have to drive for, well, more than one lap worth anyway? Just let the race run while you are away from the PS4, or asleep?

    How? Arcade Mode / Custom Race. In the test, I used Northern Isle Speedway.

    Go to Arcade Mode, then down to Custom Race. Then select the track and time. Now, (important!) pick a N100 car, either the Miata or one from your garage. Pick color and transmission, neither really matter...

    Now, we wanna maximize the payout. Note thy readout on the left for credits and experience.
    Pick Endurance as Race type. Then how long your PS4 won't be used. My test was for 6 hours.
    Set Number of cars to 2, we want second place guaranteed.
    No Boost bumps the payout, so select that.
    Most of the other things have no effect on payout, until we come to the reason we picked N100 before, Opponent Category. Pick Gr.1.
    Set Opponent Difficulty to Professional, and at a 6 hour race, you are looking at Cr.1.47 million and 11k experience, while you are doing something else. edit: NO idea why it shorted me 10k, but I can live with it...
    Park down low, set the parking brake, and come back when the timer runs out.
    It doesn't seem to pay the Safe Race bonus, for some reason. A LITTLE disappointment with that. LOL

    You DO have to drive the last lap, you have to do one to cross thew finish line after the timer expires... But pretty good cash and experience for one lap...

    Hope this helps you with getting those VGT cars. There are a bunch of them...

    Do you have to come back as the timer runs out or you can come later ? Smells like a LaFerrari purchase in my near future...

    Later is fine. It'll wait...

    Yes I tried it and there is no timer at the end of the race. I made 2.2 Million dollars over night while sleeping. :p Attaboy ! That guy must be dizzy though, he's doing a lap in 12 seconds and I made him do it for 9 hours.

    I made him do it for 17 hours. Gave me 4,180,000 Cr and 33,000 Ep.

    That poor guy went round and round fifty one hundred times...:eek:

    I tried a couple of races today:

    If you are round and about when you run the endurance races, the biggest payout based on time, is to keep doing the 10 minute race.
    That has the highest per minute payout.

    10 minute race = 6150 / min + 50% clean race = 9225 x 60 = $553,500.
    60 minute race = 4100 / min + 50% clean race = 6150 x 60 = $369,000.

    2 and 4 hour races payout the same / minute as a 1 hour race.

    I didn't get chance to check the longer races.

    NOTE, do a couple of laps at the start of the race to make sure you get the Clean Race bonus.
    If you do a full lap and then pull up on the apron before the finish line.. the flag man waves the green flag for the whole race:confused:

    Thanks DM.... you are, the man of the hour. ;)

    I thought the online races provided you cars to race with? I went in and garage empty.

    Race A at least has been providing a car. The other two are currently using cars from the garage.

    The "trick" I have detailed here should make getting the cars you need not much of a problem. N100s are cheap, relatively. Even Gr. 3s are what 450k? (One purpose of the "trick"...)

    NOTE: I am not the only one to have come up with this. I see at least a couple of YOUTUBE videos detailing this same method.

    There is also the 'ole "rubber band on the controller" trick for the Mileage points if you want to use time trial mode in Arcade to scoot a fast car along the outside wall at the speedway...
    That one I did not come up with... LOL
