Maybe someone can help.  I'm no car expert, nor expert in driving games.  The one thing I find frustrating so far is that I can't make hard turns.  Is that because of an in-game setting that I should disable/enable?  Like, is the game deliberately trying to "help" me by not letting me do hard turns so I don't accidentally flip my car?

I'd suggest the handbrake but it's gonna depend on the surface you're driving on so yeah if its offroad you're not gonna pivot on a dime.

 

Winter expansion is coming.

Grabbed the game during the XBL BF deals, didn't think I'd have the ability to download it but then went to my Aunt and Uncle's house so I got it down digitally. Not before I received an email that BB shipped me the physical copy I got for a decent price. Lol so anyone want a physical copy of the game?

So I was just racing around in the rain at night in a street race that had a NFS: Carbon vibe to it. Then after the race, just dicking around in the outback, the sun came up and what do I see a rainbow. They thought of everything lol. Gorgeous

I just built the festival in the Outback, as I went Urban City and then Valley before Outback. I'm driving the Ariel Nomad seamlessly from the Outback and then the Rain Forest picking up boards I need to smash or finding more roads to discover. God this games fun.

I have a XP board above a crashed plane and have no way of obtaining it. There was a board atop a building and I used the Nomad and an adjacent hill - previously unobtainable as well - but with this I can't seem to get the right amount of height to reach it.

Those were the two that I had the most trouble with as well.  To get the one on the plane (if it's the one I am thinking of) there is a sand dune near it with a tree or two on it. You need to have something fairly fast, and hit it just right.  I believe I used the Old Dodge Dart that I have all maxed out.  The best way to do it is just keep rewinding until you have the angle and speed correct.

Thanks for the tip, I eventually got it.  :D/

 

Yeah I have been having a blast with this game lately. Just unlocked the Goliath races, man that was long but fun (used modern super cars).

 

There are soooo many Races, PR stunts, Bucketlists, Vistas, & Speedtraps/Speed Zones/Drift Zones that are on my map lol.

No problem man.

 

I got back into playing it more a few weeks ago after realizing the Forzathon usually has one challenge that awards 3 wheelspins and I felt guilty about not playing after having bought the Expansion Pass.  I haven't got the Goliath race yet, but I have been on Blizzard Mountain for most the time trying to knock out all of the achievements there.  Getting all stars is going to drive me insane as some of the speed traps and speed zones are going to drive me absolutely insane.  I feel like most the drift zones are a piece of cake in this came now that I have the Subaru HE Drift Boost car.  Most the drift zones in both Byron Bay or Blizzard Mountain I am able to get in either the Subaru or the old trusty Dodge Dart (which I think is still my favorite car in the game).

 

If you haven't tried out the Dart, max it out in everything and throw the AWD in it.  1500 HP or so AWD. The car flies and handles so nice.

Thanks for the tip on the Dart.  I'll have to try that out.  

 

I picked up the DLC but haven't played it much since before the holidays.  I really need to get back into it though.  I really dig the soundtrack too.  Some people on youtube have made the compilations according to the station so I've been listening to the songs at work.

So, the Car Pass DLC is on sale for $17.99. Is there any reason to actually get that other than just being a fan of the cars in it?

I find myself only wanting to drive Horizon Edition cars anyway because of the various boosts they receive. I've got 11 HE cars right now and using anything else just seems kind of pointless.

Lol, while that is true yeah it'll boil down to how much of a car dude/dudet you are. I picked it up.

 

I actually have been driving around with the M3 I won in the epic street race, good ol' Most Wanted ride.

Yea, have to say this is the most fun (and gorgeous to boot) racing game I have played in a while. A good break between playing through all the backlog I have accumulated.

Speaking of which, I just spent 3 hours working on a livery for my Audi TT Quattro and when I got out of the garage and back in the Festival it was dark and raining (with brilliant stars visible). Unbelievable how it looks when that happens and the day/night cycle for this game is underrated - the other night I just stayed on a hill watching the ocean and the sun come up, magical.

I try to take in the scenery but it's tough at 200 mph. The tree detail looks great though when I wrap my car around them.

 

The game is definitely gorgeous though.  I especially like Blizzard Mountain.  I remember doing one of the bucket list challenges that was at night and thinking, "Damn this was like my drive home... Minus the fact that I don't own a million dollar car."  To be honest the night time blizzard effect is spot on though.  As someone who has lived all his life in Michigan and has driven in some of the worst snow storms that the U.S. has to offer... The realism is spot on.

 

I don't know about you guys, but I really like the way they set up the 3 star method for Blizzard Mountain.  To me I think it works better than the basic, "Do this race and win." The added requirement for doing ______ or getting a score of _____ adds more replay value to me.  I'm going to try my hardest to get the achievement for all stars, but I know it's going to be a challenge.  There are a couple speed zones and speed traps that I can already tell are going to be a pain in the ass.

I hate DLC, because every time I have no interest, as I haven't put in any investment or gotten anything out of the game yet, and I'll skip the DLC. I really want to play Blizzard Mountain now lol. Well, time to wait for a sale.

Wait, so you bought the car pass DLC, but were unsure of the actual game expansions? That seems backward to me, lol.

As soon as I saw Blizzard Mountain I knew it would be worth it. And you can kind of save money if you buy the expansion pass. It's $34.99...but that's cheaper than buying them separately.

Different strokes for different folks, I guess. I did the opposite...bought the expansion pass at full price and passed on the car pass when it was on sale, haha. I would have liked to have gotten the expansions on sale...but I remember with previous Horizons, by the time the expansions went on sale, I was done with the game months ago. And as dumb as it sounds, I wanted to play Blizzard Mountain during the winter, lol. :lol:

Did you get the latest Forzathon, super easy as long as you've got a Subaru.

 

Yeah I'm totally confused, a ton of my achievements seem to not be unlocking, like drive down every road (which I have), upgrading Festivals 10 times (which I did) and restore all barn finds (which are). Oddly enough it shows correct in the game but the achievements are fubared? On one of the stats, it shows it on the Blizzard Mountain tab/screen, which I don't have, so maybe that's messing things up. Super annoying whatever it is.

Ahhhh, this weekend's Forzathon is so so. There are parts that are easy, win a race get a Bentley GT and there are parts that are hard, complete a playground game. Nobody wants to do those lol finally someone had it in a line up for the online session I joined, did Infected and badoop got the last challenge.

After being online for a long time nobody wanted to do those and I figured I'd time to exit online adventure. Put a bunch of my winnings together, and help with rewards from Forza Hub, and using one of my discounted perks I grabbed the Ferrari FXX K with a sweet Transformers livery. Oh man pretty nice.

 

Btw, available to all players, just check your messages, the Tamo Racemo;

Yeah apparently you don't want to play this game offline for a long time because it messes up your achievements?! I have all the roads, barn finds, perks and upgrade fesitval to level 5 completed but the achievements are broken. A lot of people have talked about this on their end and have found a solution to go offline, delete your save file, start a new game and get a few things unlocked (like a new festival/perks/etc) and then delete your save file again, then go online. Supposedly reconnecting and launching the game the broken achievements will then pop. They didn't for me, only one did and it was an achievement for Blizzard Mountain, the location I was playing last night. God, drive down every road aaaaaaaannnndd nope I don't know that you did that playing offline, Fuck you.

Probably, obvious by now but I had the date wrong...  Its the 18th, tomorrow, for the 918.  All you have to do is do an airborne pass.

 

Remember you only have a 24 hour period to get it.  It starts in like 17:24 minutes from this post.

Made sure I got in on Saturday night too. Haven't used it yet, but I'm also not a big Porsche fan, so that's partly why. I wanted to make sure I got it though since I thought I saw a challenge or something having to do with winning a race with a Porsche.
