The money serves no purpose besides gating content in a racing game that has no story.

Would you like to purchase this car for 1,200,000 Credits or 1 Car Token?

The Forza 6 glitch was buying a car, dashboarding, and then you own that car without paying for it, and it was great. I bought the most expensive cars with it.

wtf i had so much money in forza 4 that i gave 20 million to a new player for kicks and still had 50 million left over

that was with a garage that was completely full including all the most expensive cars in the game

forza 3 it was tough to get the money for the pricier cars but forza 4 just handed you a loving bucketload at all times

I used to make a tonne of money just doing rivals poo poo, just getting into the top 100 on some things made pretty good money.

There were just the 20 million credit cars I never got in Forza 4 really. And some of the race cars. I am so glad you get the DLC cars for free now, that was horrible in Forza 3 and 4. Credits are so much easier to make now, I am sitting at over 50 million credits right now in Forza 6? With no cars that I feel like buying. Pretty close to owning everything in the game.

there should be some sort of focus on personal collection, even pokemon tries to get you to favor 6 of the 600+. what happened in h3 was it caused some dumb trends on the global scoreboards because of price/rarity/youtubers but i think it'd be just as bad even if every car was free

if you want like some exotic that is a little bit redder than the other one then yeah that's cool that its $69 million i guess because the most interesting thing about ferraris are their price tag.

from my brief experiences outside Horizon 3, they seem to know which cars casual players that are enthusiasts actually want immediately and make them very obtainable, often even giving them right away

Even back to the original game, I remember building a lovely k'nex robot that automated the button presses of buying and selling that engine upgrade on the Jetta. Left it running overnight once and never had to think about money again.

In hindsight since my Xbox was modded I probably could have just tweaked the save file or used a trainer...

They also need to get rid of the dumb locking cars behind events or random giveaways. The unicorns thing was the dumbest idea ever. I had two RX-7 spirits and that was the one car my friend wanted in the whole game but I wasn't allowed to give it to him because it was uNiCoRn.

I actually really liked the unicorn cars in FM4. It was fun to do stuff in the game to win them.

I do agree it sucked that you couldn't do anything with them, I think they wanted to protect the economy or whatever. I think they could have fixed that by making them able to be gifted to other users, just not sold on the marketplace.

i like unicorns but they need to make them not such a hassle to get. forza 4 did it right, but 6 has been insane trying to get them. that fuckin aston especially.

I really hate the idea of the unicorns. If they're going to bring that back they should at least make it more like Horizon 3 where they're not too hard to obtain, and can be traded/sold freely. (The Forzathon exclusive cars are technically the unicorns of Horizon 3, right?)

Also congrats on your Forza Motorsport 3 purchase. Enjoy none of your stats updating on it in Forza HUB in the forseeable future.

I've been on Forza Hub since it started and have never once given a gently caress about it. I owned FM3 during its time as the current Forza, so I'm sure I have what I'd get.

Whereas I have the misfortune of being very heavily influenced by it and compelled to spend money on dead and dying games for score and weekly riches.

Literally bought $10 worth of FM5 tokens just for points a few days ago, I have an addiction.

are they gonna let us make mad max characters for our drivatar barbies?

will we be able to put stickers on our windows?

will we ever be allowed to debadge cars or even put a scion badge on our toyotas?

The close-up cockpit view in Forza 7 might end up being my default view. It gives you a sense of each car's interior while greatly reducing how much your view is blocked by a traditional cockpit view, and it gives you a bottom-center gauge cluster. There's a bit of an FOV drop when going from the traditional cockpit view to that, but it doesn't look to me like a problem.

This is a great view that I might use in SP. But MP, I'll still use hood cam and get the mirror by default if that's still the case. But this looks feasible.

I think it was because of Dieselgate stuff that caused the removal, either from VW or Microsoft's end.

Truth. I tell my rear end in a top hat friends to build a C class classic racing car, 2 people build awesome Miatas or Alfas or Lotuses and the other 2/3rds of them show up in a 1 year old hot hatch from Ford or Renault.
