Livery Editor is a gameplay feature introduced in Gran Turismo Sport, in which players can design their own livery that can be applied on the car made to accept it. It also allows players to visually customize their racing suits and helmets.
The Livery Editor contains the following options:
- Preview - view the machine, suit, or helmet with an adjustable camera.
- Choose Background - shows the options to change the background of the work area. The options include White, Black, and Outdoor.
- Paint - apply custom paint.
- Decal - applying decals which include shapes, letters, numbers and sponsors. Custom decals can be used by accessing Personal Decal or Online Library.
- Wheels (car liveries only) - change the wheels (not available on some cars, such as all Vision GT and formula cars) and tire stickers (Gr.B, Gr.3, Gr.2, Gr.1 cars and Dallara SF19 Super Formula '19 only). Wheels must be first purchased from Mileage Exchange.
- Racing Item (car liveries only) - apply racing numbers, driver names, windshield banner (not available on formula cars), and changeable light covers (Gr.4, Gr.3 cars, Ferrari 512BB '76, McLaren P1 GTR '16, Renault Sport Mégane R.S. Trophy Safety Car and Toyota Crown Athlete G Safety Car only).
- Options - adjust interface preferences.
- Save - keep the livery for future work and/or download it for use in gameplay. It is also one of the areas where they can share the custom livery for display and download in the Discovery menu.
- Exit - leave the Livery Editor.
In order to use custom decals in the game, the player can choose either of the two options:
- For their own decals, one must make them on the computer under the optimized .svg file format and keep it under the maximum limit of 15 kB. When all of these requirements are met, players must proceed to the community page of the official Gran Turismo website, log in, and click the 'Decal Uploader' tab in order to start performing the upload. If successful, they can be found in the 'Personal Decal' section.
- For other user-generated decals, they can be found in the Decals section of the Discovery menu, and pressing 'Add to Collection' will result in the selection being sent to the Online Library. An alternate decal search function is available on this website.
- On certain road cars and almost all race cars, players are prompted to remove the original livery before custom paint, decals, or racing items can be placed. Some of these cars feature aspects that cannot be restored once removed, such as rear windshield banners.
- Brand Logo decals are restricted on Ferrari cars compared to other manufacturers, probably due to licensing agreements.
- Although Pirelli and both OZ Wheels and Motegi Racing are the only approved tire and wheel sponsors for Ferrari cars, tire stickers and wheels of other brands can still be installed.
- Several manufacturers have exclusive decals in addition to manufacturer logos:
- There is only one car that cannot use the Livery Editor, that being the Mercedes AMG F1 W08 EQ Power+ 2017, including the car's Color Variant version.
- It is possible to have a custom windshield banner on some Group C Gr.1 cars, as well on Aston Martin DBR9 GT1 '10's yellow windshield banner area.
- With the introduction of GT League, some opponents in certain events (such as Real Circuit Tours and Super Formula Championships) features built-in custom liveries on them. Additionally, some races on live Gran Turismo World Tour events (mainly one-make events) also feature custom liveries, usually representing a competitor's country. These are not accessible to the player unless recreated.
- For the 2018 Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup season, GT SPORT MOTUL Team RJN utilized the Livery Editor to create the liveries for their Nissan GT-R GT3 race car - using the GT-R NISMO GT3 N24 Schulze Motorsport '13 as a base.
- For the launch of the Mazda RX-Vision GT3 Concept, a special livery design competition was held; players were required to use the Mazda 100th anniversary decals and Michelin tire stickers, and some restrictions apply on use of user decals.
- Due to technical limitations, cars with custom liveries may have reduced texture quality when the livery is used on a race compared to in the editor, menus or Scapes.
- Although HRE is one of available default Brand Logo decals, there are no HRE wheels available in the game.
- Despite Mazda and Mitsubishi having wordmark updates in version 1.57, none of their updated wordmarks were available as decals until version 1.59. The TAG Heuer decals are also still available in that version, despite the end of TAG Heuer partnership that removed them from the Brand Central and various interfaces of the game.
