Tool to identify favorite cars by vote and suggest the Next DLC Cars

14 replies 318 views Edited Nov 16, 2012

My request is for the webmaster of the site gran turismo.
I request to create a tool that fans have to fill in your favorite cars (year - manufacturer - model) to include in a database and then that can be accessed by all GT5 fans by webpage to vote the ranking cars. 
So fans showed the team responsible for DLCs Cars ranking the cars most desire.

For example:

2013 - Dodge - SRT Viper GTS

2013 - Dodge - SRT Viper GTS-R

 

This is Democracy.

Thanks Guys

Welcome to the GT forums, XGear-LaU!

 

At SEMA this month, I made this very suggestion to the GT team.

 

What would be even better would be to have a voting mode in GT itself, so that all on-line players can participate, not just the few who get to one of these forums.

 

I was told that they would look at both ideas, so let's see what they do with it.

Yup, that's been tried before; I think this is perhaps what you have/had in mind?

Failed miserably due to lack of participation, when time came to actually vote on nominations...

It would be cool if the system logged car usage data and posted which are most used and on which tracks they were used.

Dear Warrior,

My propose is create different pages inside the principal gran turismo website, is different of your link.

  • Create a "DLC Vote&Ranking" button bettewen "FORUMS" Button and "GT BLOG" Button, for example
  • Suggestion page: here the user can be write the car characteristics (year - manufacturer - model), but limited to 10 suggestion for each user after login.
  • Vote page: here all users can se all suggestions into the data base after login.
  • Ranking page: here the top 50 suggestion to next cars.

 

My List:
01° Suggestion - 2013 - Dodge - SRT Viper GTS
02° Suggestion - 2013 - Dodge - SRT Viper GTS-R (by RaceModification)
03° Suggestion - 2013 - Dodge - SRT Viper GTS-R Race Car
04° Suggestion - 2013 - Ford - Mustang Boss 302
05° Suggestion - 2013 - Ford - Mustang GT500
06° Suggestion - 2013 - Ferrari - 458 Italia GT3 Race Car
07° Suggestion - 2013 - Mercedes - AMG SLS GT3 Race Car
08° Suggestion - 2013 - Ferrari - F12berlinetta
09° Suggestion - 2012 - Ferrari - FF
10° Suggestion - 2012 - Koenigsegg - Agera R

 

Lets go try again... but now with a good web tool

Thanks

Web sites will never be as effective as something built into GT itself.

 

Both ways are going to be assesed, so we will have to wait and see what they approve.

yes as MastrGT said, we need that wish-list system to be integrated between both a website and the game in order to garner the type of support that would truly send a clear message to the business men who run PD/Sony that devoting "X" amount of time toward building a car is worth it financially.

 

there is a very small minority of GT players who actually go to websites to discuss the game, unfortunately, and as such very few people voted in the Essential Cars List.  Smiley Sad

 

the method worked beautifully, we just need it taken to a larger scale

Web sites for this just won't work and they need to be taken out of the equation entirely.

 

For the number of unique people who visit this forum each month and the tiny handful who ever voted, the participation rate through a forum is pointless and worthless. Players are just not interested in using a forum to participate. We have clearly proven that, on a number of occasions. The only method that will work is to build some voting process into GT itself.

what I was thinking of was something that could be on the GT site itself, not the forums.  like how time trials are visible on the GT.com and you can sign in and manage all of your community things and b-spec races etc.

 

it could be the same voting mechanism, just shown in-game and on the site.  it could work.
