Just like that, GT5 1.07 patch drops

Well, this was a pleasant surprise from Polyphony Digital:

[Major Changes and New Features]
Friend Rankings
In Drift Trials and Time Trials, you can now display leaderboards that shows only your friends. While it was difficult before to locate your friends in the general leaderboards, this now makes it easier to compare your lap times and points with them.

[Fixed Issues]
– Performance points (PP), which is an index of a car's overall performance, is now calculated regardless of your tire selection. You can now set performance point restrictions and tire restrictions separately when you race in a lounge.
– Fixed the issue where the performance of electric cars increased/decreased after a certain amount of driving.
– Downloaded replays from Seasonal Event Rankings can now be viewed properly.

[Other Changes]
– Cars worth over 1,000,000 Cr. (including gift car coupons) are now prohibited from being traded to prevent issues during the trading process. When lending and borrowing cars between friends, please use the car loan system.

GT5 patch 1.03 adds mechanical damage

I know Top Shell has become "Gran Tursmo Shell" these days, but hey when it's hot it's hot. The latest patch released weighs in at 150MB, and comes with "mechanical damage" as an option for online play. No word what else may be in the patch. Here are the descriptions of the damage settings:

  • None: – No mechanical damage.
  • Light: – Mechanical parts can be damaged, but will be fixed be repaired after a period of time, without needing to pit.
  • Heavy: – Mechanical damage can only be fixed by heading to the pits. There will be an on-screen UI element to indicate that parts are damaged.

I am stuck at work for another 2-1/2 hours, so I don't get the joy of checking this out until nearly midnight PST. Woe is me.
