Odd choice of terms, but yeah, in any race with free range of cars, the AI will all drive cars in the same class. In this case, Italian supercars through pastoral Britain.
Luv 2 watch the AI pick any car from that free range to compete with that matches what I brought along. I guess it’s my fault for bringing along such a weird spec option of… the Forza Edition of a car (ie one the devs spec’d and must expect people to bring to events for the bonus they attach to them).
(How did none of the AI pick the same car I was in? Surely that must be the obvious way to generate fair competition?)
I spent the afternoon making this livery for my NSX and I’m really happy with it! Feels nice to have a unique looking car! (I didn’t make the logos, thank you community vinyls! )
I did the cross country supercar extravaganza again because it’s very fun.
Fun fact: if you refocus the camera on a different car in the race and hit the fix cosmetic damage button it’ll fix the damage on the car you’re focused on. Focusing on that red Hennessy is also how I got that nice fake fisheye blur on my slower moving car.
Also, I went back to the south river and I guess I’m choosing to live here now with, I guess since it’s Britain, the Faerie Queene. Knew I made that Britomart license plate for a reason.
AKA Don’t talk to me or my Lambo sons ever again.
Yeah I did the supercar Cross Country thing too. You never feel like you’re quite in control, in a good way.
How will I know when I’m satisfied?
Ah, that’s more like it! Finally polished off those last couple of drift zones after leaving my trusty Nissan 240SX at home. My final pair of monsters:
After putting off the inevitable for a month I got Forza working by ditching Trend Micro and switching back to ESET. I didn’t want to try it because I didn’t want to buy a new AV solution but here I am, driving on the left.
It wouldn’t be a Forza without those amazing bugs but this one is just surreal. Especially as it appears to have started to show up on a lot of systems just after a patch which notes
- Fix for traffic cars not spawning sometimes after a Barn Find cinematic.
Good news everybody! We fixed a bug where traffic didn’t come back after a barn find. Bad news: some people now get absolutely no traffic when connected to online in a game that defaults to auto-connecting to an online session whenever you start the game.
Driving round and seeing not a single AI car and just some actual people (who always ghost as you get close to them as normal) is… quite something. Loading into the game and quickly teleporting to the motorway to see that dense traffic, only for it to vanish as the game connects to an open lobby/freeroam. Having to go into the offline mode just to complete a daily challenge to Near Miss because you need traffic to do that and there is literally not a single AI car if the bug strikes.
So I maybe had my favorite session playing this game today. I recently realized that fast cars are not for me, so I got an legendary C-class Jag, painted it burgundy, maxed it out for C-class, and did every single street race I could find. I also tried using the Xbox One spotify app and playing my own music instead of what’s in the game. It’s not perfect since you can’t mute the in game music. Even when you turn off the radio station the music plays immediately before and after races. But still, listening to Honey by Robyn and stuff by yaeji while driving around in a class Jag was such a relaxing experience that I needed today.
Yes, clearly the real escapist fantasy of Horizon isn’t speeding and destroying stone walls because it’s a weird dystopian car festival world, but doing all that and getting away with it solely because you’re a Jag owner.
I’m so upset I missed summer by one day to get this car and this beautiful design.
Any time of year is time for Kirby <(^.^)>
(edit: oh right you mean the barn find…)
I just realized that the Jaguar I was driving is the Type E, and I can confirm that it definitely fucks.
All my Forza Fotomode Fanatics out there (who haven’t stuck with the game so they missed this, like me)! They’ve updated the mode to add a bunch of stuff like colour temperature, focus types, different bokeh shapes, and the ability to remove drivers from cars. Here’s the new menu:
EDIT: Back on my bullshit, I guess.
I guess this thread got a little abandoned, but I’m actually still playing pretty frequently. Fortune Island has some pretty good drift content I’ve been having fun with!
This tracked motion blur is in F7 as well and I was really missing it in this game, so much more creative potential!
Some of the mountain peaks are a bit too Skyrim for my liking, I prefer something more realistic, but overall some really gorgeous views in this expansion. Some great cliffs I was lacking in the vanilla game.
Lastly, very important: New Peel
Apparently, Mitsubishi is coming back to Forza Horizon 4! A new free car pack will be released today (January 15) with seven Mitsubishi cars within.
This is the best news!
Now if only Toyota would ease up their lincencing shit we’d be in business…
So good! I was missing those 90’s Mitsubishis a lot.
I dipped into Fortune Island a day or two ago and really liked the treasure hunt mechanic. I dunno if others really care about it but I dig it so far. I like the scenery quite a bit too!
