Finished Blizzard Mountain save getting a few more stars. It was fun, at first. But constantly understeering cars is a real turn off after a while. Certainly pretty but it kinda stopped being much fun after the 10th race. Also I hate cross country races.

Also, why the fuck am I severely limited to car designs? I can't add any more and I can't even change the paint colour. What? I've got 100GB free on my SSD and I can't use any of it? I guess they ported over the console limitation to the PC version. Now I can't get designs for every car in the game. So stupid. And I doubt they'll fix that. Poor job there Playground, really poor job.

There's a limit? I've got more than 300 saved designs in Forza 6 (they're mostly very simple), but I haven't encountered any problems.

I doubt the Porsche expansion (if it does exist) that it'll be only 18 cars (weird number to have an expansion on) so hopefully we'll get atleast two more models for Porsche.

I wonder how much of this stuff will actually make it in

If that list is legit, then there's a Porsche in that list that will make a ton of people happy.
I actually compared it to my ideal list of Porsche DLC and it was only missing:
* 991.2 R, which could easily be a body mod for the GT3 RS
* 971 Panamera, which would be a dumb miss given the presence of the Cayenne/Macan."

I hope these leaks are confirmed, it would make FH3 a most complete collector simulator.

anyone else noticed that there's a lot of track cars on the list, will there perhaps be a monthly dlc with all the cars in question?
that nismo GT-R LM is everything I want

Still holding out hope that the second expansion is another land mass and not just an over priced car pack. Have they said when they are going to rotate the current Horizon Edition cars? I'm sitting on a ton of wheel spins. :)

I hope they do rotate the Horizon edition cars around. I'm also sitting on tons of wheel spins.

Totally agree, and that the overpriced car pack is full of porsches!

Yeah I said it fight me!

I've got 292 cars in FH3. Most have 1 design, some have none and the game tells me I can have no more. I'm guessing the limit is 300. It's obviously something that was ported over from the console version I guess. But God, how dumb.

Also when is the January Car Pack going to drop on PC? Did they screw up so bad it's taking 3 days+ to fix?

somehow, I guess the update has to go through the whole acceptance cycle along what I can see as an eternal compile time for the exe in the first place

I just want to drive the R31 already

I think of myself as a car collector as well and that really sucks. :( Imo only the progression should be mandatory for cloud saves and the designs/tunes etc. should only be stored there for backup.

As much as I liked the base game it probably wasn't going to make my GOTY list. However playing Blizzard Mountain has brought it right back into contention, what a brilliant expansion.

They really need to fix the Drivatar AI in the next game though, it's essentially broken. I can breeze through and win with ease in one race and then in the next try 5 times and never get in the top 3 despite driving as well as I can.

Can't believe it has taken so long for the R31 to appear in the series.
And most likely only showed up due to Australia relevance in touring car racing

If the leaks are true, add a new for the series mid 90's touring car edition of the R32 to that list. Honestly, T10/Playground are doing the daunting task of balancing the supercar and new car fans with those who want older cars and oddball cars (me)

The other Nissan wasn't an R32, it was the R33 GT LM, I assume the road car:


The specs match the road car exactly.

So with the dev tools I can render up to 16K screenshots (I can go further but it crashes because of VRAM) and I can specify how many samples the photomode renders.

This is just a 1080p example, but LOOK AT HOW SMOOTH THE DOF IS. Photomode renders 300 samples by default which is nice, but 1500 samples makes it almost like actual bokeh.


So beautiful.

The disappointment here for me is that while I had already expected it anyway is that the second expansion pack looks to be indeed just another Porsche pack with probably some new events tied to it. Huge bummer considering I was secretly hoping for another Blizzard mountain style expansion.
If they don't have to pay EA a ton of money for the Porsche license in 2017 and most of the Porsches were in previous this-gen Forza's how could they charge game-expansion money, again?!? I don't believe the expansion will be just Porsche cars and challenges (unless it's like a $10 thing).

hopefully more porsches, esp highly desired ones that EA kept anyone from ever licensing

I'd kill for a 1967 Shelby GT 500 in this game....and in real life :p

Finally found the last road. Been bugging me for weeks now >.>

Anyway, someone was telling me earlier that if you have purchased all the DLC packs, including Blizz Mountain, you can get the 2016 Focus Gymkhana in the DLC section of the autoshow without having to win the Blizz Mountain championship.

Is this true?

Just need Blizzard Mountain for that. Go into the DLC cars section and you can add it to the garage from there without having to win it. Best bit: winning KotM will give you a second one ^^

Not at home and can't find any info on the current Forzathon other than the fact that the Hall of the Mountain King event is glitched. What are the dates and events for the current one?

This is the one that is broken btw.

Not a huge loss considering the car already came with the expansion and it's just another livery compared to the #199.

That's the one I'm working on next. What is a stuntman skill? I think Snowman is hitting a snowman at a certain speed, but not sure about stuntman. They really should have a codex for this stuff in game.

Stuntman is get air skill first and then after landing immediately get a near miss. That shit is so complicated and situational that I can't imagine anyone does it over snowman skills lol.

Let me know if it's broken for you too. I got the achievement like I said but no car.

Stuntman sound impossible. lol

Did you do the 15 races on blizzard mountain or main land Australia?
I couldn't get my barn find car added to my garage when I was in BM. Wonder if its the same with the prize car too.

Yeah I did. I worked on completing some of my remaining championships in BM. Considering all the other challenges worked there too that thought didn't even cross my mind lol. Guess I will do it on the main map again then.
