Polyphony Digital and Sony have released a new patch for Gran Turismo 7, which you can download directly from the web. In addition to various bugs, an exploit has unfortunately also been removed, which previously made it easier for you to get tuning parts for the still rather expensive cars. We’ll tell you what’s in the download (via gran turismo).
This is new with Gran Turismo 7 update 1.18
You will look in vain for new content in update 1.18, the file only takes care of various problems. Among them is an exploit that only found its way into the game with version 1.17. Thanks to the trick, it was possible to dust off an infinite number of four-star tickets and six-star engines (and a Honda NSX Gr.B) in the new roulette system. The high-performance engines could then be installed in relatively cheap cars.
So now it’s time to work hard again for the rare parts. At least the grind will be a little more pleasant with the fresh patch, since this of course also fixes various bugs and errors. Including problems with the Logitech G923 steering wheel and the transfer of save data between different consoles.
