And elevation changes. While not drastic, they are there and make for a very dynamic lap. Every corner is unique and engaging in its own way.

I've only driven the indy circuit irl but paddock hill bend is fun as hell when you get it right and it's steeper than youd think. I'd love to do the full circuit one day but for some reason they rarely use it for TD's and its like double the price of a full day of the Indy Circuit.

This week's Forza Garage is out and there are a couple cool new BMW race cars - the BMW Motorsport 3.0 CSL and the Z4 GTE.

A quick glance at the rest of the list doesn't reveal anything new to the series aside from the Indy cars, which are 2015 models and I think FM5 has what, 2013 ones? Maybe 2014? A bunch of other numbered racers that have been in previous games, and a bunch of other stuff from the past games. The VW Van from Horizon 2 is here.

I managed to snag one of those ebay $85 dollar deals the other week so am locked in with the Ultimate.

All the new tracks sound great and I'm really excited!. But ... I still don't get how you could leave out Maple Valley ... again. That decision seems nuts to me. Has a long and short version and has a completely different feel when reversed. What a track.

Is Porsche in FM6 or is NFS underground gonna gently caress that up?

I don't think anything official has been said. There was some statement about Porsche coming to Forza in 2016, so best hope is a DLC pack like they did in FM4 as far as anyone knows.

I think EA's deal with Porsche expires at the end of the year, so I wouldn't be surprised if Turn 10 has a "Porsche Pack" that's basically ready to release as soon as that deal is up.

I imagine that Playground Games and Turn 10's relationship is pretty loving tight. Those Porsche cars had to have been built with Forza 6 in mind.

Well, they share assets, so any cars in Forza Horizon 2 have a high probability of making it into Forza 6 (ie the same people make the cars for both games).

Playground Games makes the open world setting and throws those cars into it.

Do you have to pre-order the super duper edition, or can you just buy it when its available. Especially if its digital only.

I think Turn 10 has said that they have 3d scans of cars that are in a higher resolution than even the current gen consoles can use, so I wouldn't be at all surprised if a lot of the cars that appear in all three current-gen Forza games aren't just the same models and textures (with some refinements) getting ported from one game to another.

This is the smart way to do it, so you don't get stuck with GT's system of "premium" cars and a number of them being last-gen assets.

I think we're at the point where detail is about as high as it's going to get for cars, at least the models used in the Forzavista mode. The only areas that could improve are graphical things in the actual game, like anti-aliasing, anisotropic filtering, texture resolution for custom liveries, etc. The car models themselves are pretty much flawless, even up close to where we're looking at tiny screws and rivets.

And yes, since Forza 3/4, they've been using the same models, just upped in detail and increased poly counts, or added visible engine areas for Forzavista (like the Ford RS200 off the top of my head)

They could always go for more detail on modeling, like 3d physically modeled suspenson and steering geometry stuff and mounts and joints. Iike the 4-5 bump in detail that allowed 5 to have open wheel cars

hmmm, wonder what those 'Mods' are exactly. I guess they're extra challenges that you can 'equip' for races to boost up the difficulty, perhaps for a cash/xp bonus? I guess you can collect them too, sort of like Burn Cards from Titanfall.

Yeah, it's essentially 'Ways to make the game harder for yourself because you're too unimaginative to drive anything but the fastest leaderboard car, ya mook"

Things like "Make me start in last place every time" or "turn off rewinds" for extra cash/XP. I think they likened it to being basically the Skulls system in Halo.

Handling is supposedly lighter than Forza 5, which soured me on the game as nearly every car was an understeering pig without tuning.
