Both Flesh & I, maybe others, didn't get the Viper. Need to do the Facebook thing, & I got some old car for playing Forza 3.

1971 AMC Javelin.

Full Trailer


While I appreciate them helping to level the number of European cars vs American I don't really think this was the pack to do it with... I want that McLaren! :D

I'm really, really, hoping that the season pass goes on sale during the Xmas sale... I bought the collector's edition, so while I don't think I overspent do to the amount of enjoyment its given me and the fact that the CE hasn't been on sale anywhere, I do want to get a nice deal on the season pass do to the massive sale the base game has seen.


Isn't the season pass just the 7 or 8 monthly car packs & the upcoming rally expansion? Maybe they will have a 1-day sale but all the stuff will be on sale a la carte eventually, Oct. car pack was on sale Black Friday for like $3.

I'm obviously an idiot. I had never touched multiplayer until last night but couldn't for the life of me figure out how to request to join the CAG league. Can someone advise what I'm sure this very simple process is? lol

There is an extra car via the season pass... So I would really just rather get the season pass. The Forza 4 season pass has gone on sale, as has the Gears 3 season pass, so it will happen... I just hope its sooner rather than later.

I'm really confused about how to drive multiplayer in this game. In other games, the design of the game is very obvious. In Burnout, drive fast and take out cars.

in Forza Motorsport, drive clean and fast.

In Horizon, I'm not sure what it is. When I try to take the high road and drive fast/clean, I get pummeled and it's a total demolition derby. It looks crazy to see these amazing cars ramming each other and seeing pileups of cars in corners.

The design of the game makes you feel like you should drive clean. Because there's no destructive crash like Burnout with a nitro recovery. And the single player feels like an open world Forza Motorsport.

But when you play dirty, you often find yourself way out in front with nobody near you so all you have to do is drive clean lines thereafter. It doesn't seem to have that tense rubberbanding effect of other arcade racers where people in the back never really out of it.

Yes, rubberbanding was annoying but you have to admit that it keeps all races competitive.

I think since the game feels like an open world Forza Motorsport, they should do races that take advantage of that design. Make courses that travel more of the map.

And they need to patch something in the game to deal with the demolition derby aspect. Either allow for true damage or drastically shrink down the XP earned due to damage. Either way would limit what people are doing out there.

But if you're arguing that this demolition is what they're looking for, then they need to go all out and have total destruction. That would create more strategy about when to hit, what to hit, etc.

A patch needs to address what this game wants to be.

For me, it should be open world racing, Forza style.

alright, since I'm a Forza Horizon n00b, I thought a spreadsheet would help me and others.

I created a spreadsheet and it's editable by anyone that wants to make additions to it. I did my best to check for typos but if any of you see typos, please correct it and put in the notes that you corrected it. Also, since some cars are repeated, if the car is slightly different (for example, you have the default Viper and the special Forza Horizon Viper), please put both down and note it in the notes that they're 2 separate entries.

Please make sure that you do not enter a car that's already on the list. Only enter again if it's slightly different.

And if you made changes to the car, if you cannot remember the original settings, please put in the notes that you modified the car.

I'd like original numbers for the cars as much as possible.

Not that I'm aware of. But there's a BMW M1 which looks basically the same, but has way better specs. I actually shared it to the car club all upgraded and looking like a DeLorean. It's pretty cool. There's even a design in the storefront that is done up with all the logos and "time travel effects", but I wanted more of a realistic look.

What is the extra car via season pass? I've been regretting not being VIP, but so far the extra cars are just normal cars with special skins. Not a big deal to me. It seems you have more chances for unicorns with VIP, but most of the unicorns kinda suck anyways. I got the first pack half off and figure I'll just get the most interesting packs whenever they hit half off. Can't wait to get the December pack with the F12 and the F1. I sat in an F1 in a London showroom once. Very cool. I had the balls to ask the sales chick if I could get a test drive. She actually said yes if I put down a security deposit of $250,000!

Once you hit the purple races in single player, rubber banding becomes a much bigger deal. As far as multiplayer, something needs to be done/should have been done before launch about all of the dirty racing. It sucks to get out in front and then get pummeled into the wall in the first turn because you're in the lead at that point. That's why I mostly avoided multicar races in Dirt 2 and 3 and stuck to rally/trailblazer. Seems like these guys (alot of Playground Games came from Codies) haven't figured out it's a problem.

Admirable effort, but to save you some trouble just look on the forzamotorsport.net forums. Someone already has a filled out spreadsheet I believe.

thanks so much for this tip! unfortunately, the guy locked his spreadsheet, which diminishes many of the benefits of a spreadsheet. it doesn't even allow sorting.

here's the link for people interested in his spreadsheet:
https://docs.google....wY3NzQWc#gid=12


I think I'll grab some of those numbers and allow full flexibility of the spreadsheet. That way, someone can sort by AWD if they wanted.

If there's a way to do things with his spreadsheet besides the basic view, please let me know so I don't have to do any work! :razz:

Alright, I used many of those numbers to make a spreadsheet that anyone can sort for their needs:
https://docs.google....QtVlJZMlE#gid=0

I'm more interested in performance numbers that matter for gaming. So I put what I thought was important. But since I'm a n00b at racing, if you feel like there are other numbers that are important, please let me know.

The season pass car is a 2006 Lamborghini Miura Concept. So its not a huge loss if not gotten but I would like to have all the cars.

The LE/VIP does have 5 cars unique to it:

2012 Audi R8 GT Spyder
2011 Koenigsegg Agera
2011 Lamborghini Sesto Elemento
2012 Pagani Huayra
2011 RUF Rt 12 R

I sat in an F1 in a London showroom once. Very cool. I had the balls to ask the sales chick if I could get a test drive. She actually said yes if I put down a security deposit of $250,000!


Very cool. Hard to imagine that a million dollar sports car would be a good investment but the most recent one sold went for 3.5 million pounds.

I need a favor, and I'm hoping that someone in this thread can help...

Is there anyone in this thread who is also a member of the Forza 4 CAG Car Club? If so can you boot up Forza 4 and look and see if it tells you who is the club leader... I've been trying to get access for awhile now and have had no luck. (I've even bumped the rather dead Forza 4 thread too.)

Yea, if you are in free drive, when you hit Y to rewind, there is an option to view replay. From there you can create a movie. I made the movie, and it said it was uploaded, but now I can't find it. It was just a pretty odd flip that somehow happened in my Vette. I was just driving down a dirt road all of a sudden the left side just launched in the air and barrel rolled the car one time and back onto its tires. It was weird/funny as hell.

I felt like getting competitive after seeing all of the messages saying someone beat my speed at different locations and felt the need to at least attempt some of them. Since I joined the club, it is really nice to be able to see the friend and club leaderboard filled with people who enjoy this game as much as I do.

Anyone want to get a game night set up? We could do some racing or free roam or something.
