*tries Nurburgring endurance event*
*Uses a bunch of one time use mods to boost winnings*
*can't figure out where the gas gauge is*
*Runs out of gas half way through 4th lap*

...

The way the engine acts shortly before running out of fuel is super cool though. It chokes for a bit then it just stops and you slowly roll to a stop.

Yes sir, double. Really helps because I only got 300K from forza rewards to start with. Cars are pretty expensive at the start like that.

Highlights from the Nurburgring Night race with E23s, no driving lines, and locked to cockpit view. 10:26 is the time to beat currently lol.

While I have the Ultimate Edition downloaded and been playing for a few days, just wanted to say I am giddy like a school girl at getting the Forza Bundle tonight. Just got back from paying it off and just need to return later tonight to pick it up. Looking forward mostly to the controller with the better grips on the back and of course the new bumper buttons and lastly the cool looking blue console!!!

I haven't bothered to crunch the numbers to see if it's accurate, but I'm just glad that fuel consumption is actually a factor now.

I ran 20 laps on the 24-hr layout of Daytona, (which with a full grid of mostly IMSA and FIA GT cars under the lights is balls-to-the-wall amazing), and about halfway through noticed AI cars starting to make for the pits. Switched on the HUD and saw that, yep, my C7.R was close to empty.

'Bout time, too; I haven't had to refuel in a Forza game since FM3.

Just ordered the Logitech G920 wheel. Are playseats always out of stock? :(

Might just go with a wheel stand pro V2 if the wait is too long for the playseat.

Not that big of a leap. They are simulating driving a car as other people, not simulating real life motorsport racing. Many of the features that are missing are really based on that premise. Still a beautiful game and damn fun to drive.
Yeah I don't doubt that. I just play a lot of PC sims and they all have championships and stuff. I'd love for this to have it too.

It's weird. I feel like Forza used to have something like this. Regardless, I can't put my finger on what it is, but the game is just downright fun. It just "feels" good racing all around.

Getting a clean line is extremely satisfying in it, moreso than any other game. I'm loving Watkins Glen, flying around that in the Zakspeed Capri Turbo, kissing the apex on corner entry and touching on the rumble strips on exit just feels so right. I dunno what it is, it's just exhilerating.

My wheel comes tomorrow! I bought the ultimate edition, but didn't really touch it much after a few hours because I wanted to progress with the wheel instead. CAN'T WAIT!!

I hear ya, and I do agree. But to me that feeling is what excites me about racing in general. When playing Forza 5 it just didn't get my hyped, in Forza 6 it feels so good, but I'd be hard pressed to put my finger on why it just feels better in 6.

Physics are definitely better in FM6, that's probably why. That's what I meant, normally it's a good feeling but in FM6 it's incredibly satisfying.

Loving it so far! So many more tracks than Forza 5 and the different conditions definitely ratchet up the difficulty even more.

I haven't really checked out the online scene, but are there options to create your own event? Like run a real-time 24 hour Le Mans with a day/night cycle?

Goddamn why aren't these showcase events an entire series? That 70s Grand Prix was amazing, I want a full championship series of that, is something like that unlocked in the later volumes?

Sigh. Guess I better get an XBone now :/
I've owned and loved all Forza's bar 5 and the horizon games.

For those looking/waiting for the Logitech G920, NCIX supposedly has them in stock. I'll find out whether they process or cancel my order.

Wait...the controller is different? /jealous

I've already logged a solid 10+ hours, and I'm smitten with this game. I really like the showcase events. They did really well by making them feel different than slightly rescind races.

I'm a huge fan of the ...damn, can't remember the name, but the races where you race as the top spec of an iconic car, and you race against the slower/older versions of the same car - but you have to give them a head start. Racing as an M3 GT2, giving the original M3 almost a 30 second head start at Silverstone - it was a hell of a race. I will probably run that race several more times, even though I beat it soundly. The Corvette one at Sonoma I just barely edged out, that was fun as well but I'm a much bigger M3 fan than I am a Corvette guy.

Friend just finished career with all achievements. The shortest of all Forza titles yet. They sure meant it when they said it would be less grindy.

Very happy to hear this.

Unlock in 10 minutes. Early Access sort of dissipates the hype for the actual release date.

The tutorial is pretty egregious, the game even acknowledges that I've played prior forza games before and insists on explaining everything. Anyway the game is fucking amazing, first thing I noticed was the sound of the cars bumping togeather, it sounds like A car collision , and not card board box on card board box like forza 5.

Lol

Got the Veyron on my first spin.
+1

And later lv3 got the Le Man Toyota or something!

Started tonight and sadly going to sleep now, but it's been amazing so far. Did the first volume and the first showcase event, looking forward to more showcase.

Credits so far are scarce, spent it all in mods thinking I'd get an achievement out of it, doesn't seem so. Lol

Can't wait to try league races. And ForzaGAF meeting or course!

P. S. : added back everyone that had added me before. Thanks guys!

Just got back from Gamestop with my Forza Bundle. Lot's of people for Destiny Taken King, but saw 4 Forza Bundles walking out including mine. The guy at the counter said they sold 4 PS4 Destiny Bundles and 4 Forza Bundles. This is small town Gamestop. Now to set up my new system!

So the videos of the Caparo T1, Citroen DS3 and Cadillac Limousine were not only taken down, but the whole channel was taken down also. This leads me to believe these are either part of an unannounced DLC between now and the first monthly car pack - or the cars in the first monthly car pack.

Baby steps, but in the right direction..!

Forcing myself to go to bed, but it's good to be back...
Haha, same here. Yesterday it was free play time trials in the Mono, and tonight it was free play with 23 AI on the track for long(er) races on Spa, Rio, Bathurst and the Green Hell.

This game is damn good.

EDIT: I didn't see any Drivatars in my events tonight though. All first initial and surnamed AI. Is something up with me or the servers? Wasn't a problem as most of them played nice.

I thought the general consensus was that Thrustmaster offer the better product, overall package and price - curious to know why you are going the Logitech route..?

If I buy it right now in the US Store, I have early access and can play it today? Is this for real? Because I would have to wait for my retail copy here in germany.

Absolutely love everything in this game apart from one thing......

Top 3 finishes.

Who the fuck thought that was a good idea?

I'm not the best driver but I like to have the difficulty set where if I make one mistake I get punished. I've had to re-play some tracks / races over and over to get top 3. All I want is a points based championship that if I don't win I can simply redo at a later date.

I also liked the Forza 5 Medal System.
You could change the Drivatar difficulty higher to have an intense racing experience and don´t have to bother the placement.
I finished often in silver, but the racing was cleaner and more exciting.
