Playground Games != Turn10 ... I didn't have the same expectations that you did, it seems.

I'm still having fun with it.

Don't get me wrong, I'm having fun with it as well. It's just that if you are going to label the game as "Forza" something, whether it's by Turn 10 or Playground, to me it comes with a certain set of expectations of realism and thoroughness. And no hokey voice acting slywink

I'm not sure why you were expecting Forza 5 here.  If it was Forza 5, they would have called it that.  This was always going to be a lighter experience that Forza 5 and appeal to less hardcore of a crowd.  Knowing how much you love more hardcore racing games, I think you should probably just stick to Forza 4 until Forza 5 comes out.

For me, I enjoy both.  I can use Horizon for open world more-arcadey (but not as bad as other arcade racers) fun and F4 for more of a sim.

Especially after the demo I knew I wasn't expecting FM5 nod, but since FM5 is a year away and it seems that there won't be any more new content for FM4 I was giving FH a try.

There were a number of items in my list, like the poor paint shop presentation and the annoying voice acting, that could have been better even in this more arcade-like Forza game. This is an average arcade racer; I was just hoping for more from the Forza franchise.

What is a 'Barn Find' by the way?,i have seen many Barns out there,but nothing happens,is it specific barns i need to find?

You will get notified when a barn find is unlocked, you have to reach certain levels to have each one appear. When they do they show up on your map as white circles; you drive around in that area there till you find a barn and then drive up to it. You have to get pretty close and on a certain side, so just circle it a bit.
1324  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360]Forza Horizon on: October 26, 2012, 03:18:39 AM
I'm not feeling the love for this game. Oh, there are some things I do like about it, but here is a partial list of annoyances:

- The Paint Shop has flouresant lighting which reflects off the car you are trying to paint or apply decals to. This is really annoying as you have to keep moving the damn camera to avoid the reflections. FM4 didn't do anything dumb like this.

- Speaking of the Paint Shop,  the layer menus are tilted, which looks all cool and edgy no doubt, but it obscures part of the damn car!

- The commercials on the radio stations, or I guess I mean the DJ commentary, is astoundingly lame. Ditto the comments by your "rivals" before each race.

- Just like in Project Gotham Racing, there's little motivation to get a number of cars of the same class unless there is some restriction for a race, like AWD or Japanese or pre-1970 or the like. Usually I find one with the best numbers and I use that to race, since there's no real reason to spend the time prepping more cars than necessary. This is because...

- ...You can't tune your cars. Now I have to say I am impressed that just like in FM4 you can select individual parts; however, since you can't tune it's rather hit or miss. Getting a racing gearbox is great, unless the gear ratios you are given aren't the ones you want.

- The map is just not big enough, and there is not enough road mileage. I've played eight and a quarter hours and I've covered 588 miles and with that I've unlocked all the major roads and almost all of the rest except for a few tiny connectors. And that mileage includes the miles I've run in races.

- Speaking of races, I've run about a third of them, according to the stats. There's just not a lot of variety. Oh sure, some are run in towns and some out in the countryside, some are at night and some during the day, some are circuits and some point to point. However, they just don't feel all that different as far as the racing goes. And part of that is due to...

- ...The lack of Forza physics. Yes, I know they claim that the game engine is from FM4, but I have put dozens and dozens of hours in FM4 and even went back today and tried it again, trying to use the same car in both games, and it's not the same. I race with the assists off and in FM4 you feel like you are balancing on a knife edge to make the perfect apex, shifting exactly at the right moment to use the torque of the engine, pushing the tires to the very limit of adhesion. In FH I feel like it doesn't matter because it's going to slip and slide and hey, I'm just going to carom off the guardrails anyway.

- And there is no damage, so there is no consequence to bad driving except to lose a little time. I can just hammer through a turn sideswiping opponents and clipping the terrain, because it's not like I'm in a real car.

- And I can't race against the AI of my choice at a track of my choice like I can in FM4. It's a great way to test out your car tuning... oh, wait, I can't tune my car!

I have other gripes, but that's enough for now. As I said, I don't hate the game, I'm just disappointed over so many aspects of it that could have been so much better. I'm pretty sure I'll be passing on the Season Pass and all the DLC, unless I read enough about the Rally Expansion coming in December to think it might be worth getting.

I just posted this over at the FM.net forum to a thread about FM4 loyalty cars:

Quote
This is weird. I got my FM4 loyalty cars, eight of them, all well and good. Later on I went to Dak's garage after I had leveled up a wristband and when I went to change cars I was asked if I wanted to download my loyalty cars. Huh? I clicked OK and it downloaded the same eight cars, so I have duplicates of eight cars. I am tempted to sell off the duplicates and make some money, but if this is bug and selling them off is considered an exploit, I could get the banhammer laid up my head. So I'll wait.

Oh and there's a difference between the AI being 'unshackled' to use better tactics rather than just bumping up it's chance to hit numbers too.

In Classic mode both these things happen. So far, unless Firaxis updates the game, the only way you'll be able to unshackle the AI without the "cheating" bonuses is through modding.

More classic/ironman gripes.

I feel like the game is cheating. There's nothing I can do when using sound tactics and can still get zeroed from halfway across the map in full cover when my own guys get like 40% hit chance from standing right in front of the enemy.

Might have to just call it a day on xcom. Great ride for the 33 hours I spent on it. Would like to try at the classic, but I'm not going to put myself through it...

A way to fix that is to use the mods over at XCOM Nexus. Assuming of course you're playing on the PC.

Ah, bummer. They switched from the codes being good for three hours to only having a limited number of ones.

This is kind of a neat mod from XCOM Nexus, Soldier Ranks That Make Sense

Quote
What changed? No more officers in fireteams. All the ranks are ones that suit soldiers going straight into combat, and not sitting behind desks, devising cleaver strategies or plotting support routes. It's still stupid having a fireteam comprised of four master sergeants but a lot better then them being all majors...

-==CHANGES==-

Rookie -> Private (Pvt.)
Squaddie -> Private First Class (PFC)
Corporal -> Lance Corporal (LCpl.)
Sergeant -> Corporal (Cpl.)
Lieutenant -> Sergeant (Sgt.)
Captain -> Gunnery Sergeant (GySgt.)
Major -> Master Sergeant (MSgt.)
Colonel -> Sergeant Major (SgtMaj.)

The ranks are based off of USMC as I thought it would suit a unit like X-COM the best.

I'm not planning on changing the Psi ranks, at least not until I played long enough to acquire them and see if something's wrong with them.

If you have any ideas for changes or additions, feel free to share them.

There has been a stream of new mods posted over at XCOM Nexus, but this one caught my eye. It might be good for those folks who want to get a taste of the end game without getting their brains beaten out over and over again (IE me Roll Eyes)

Excalibur's Easier Easy Mod v1.0

Quote
This is a simple mod to make easy mode, that much easier. It's something of a cheat I guess you could say, but it's not overly dramatic changes. Your welcome to send me an email with suggestions or ideas for the next version, you can reach me at [email protected].

[email protected]---------------------------------------------------------

This mod makes the following changes:
- Titan Armor provides 5 additional HP to make it a bit more durable for the later stages of the game.
- All classes have recieved one additional HP per rank and a small increase to the aim they game.
- All countries have had their funding doubled.
- The max range penalty for short range weapons has been decreased slightly.
- The grappling ability on the Skeleton Armor has had it's range increased to 20
- Alien abduction mission rewards have been doubled.
- Terror and Abudction UFOs will now show up, so you can intercept them if you so choose.
- The maximum number of UFOs has been increased from 2 to 3. This will help to allievate any shortages of alien materials for research and manufacturing.
- Salvaged UFO power sources will now give 40 Elerium as opposed to 30 for the same reason as above.
- All captured UFOs will yield twice as much alien alloys.
- All new rookies will start with higher stats.
- The chance of finding PSI talented soldiers has been increased dramatically.
- Panic levels in general have been reduced, so it should be much easier to keep the world calm smile
- Improvements in the Officer Training have been reduced in cost.

Quote from: Purge on October 18, 2012, 04:58:46 AM

Just checked - there is no toggle for expert controls - simply that one can turn off assists, and if you so desire, turn on simulation steering, auto/manual/manual w. clutch, TCS, ABS, etc.

There is an Advanced section, where you can adjust play and deadzones for your controls.

I figured out what they were talking about. What you do is go to Options, then Difficulty section and move the top adjustment (called GAME DIFFICULTY) which reads EASY, MEDIUM, PRO etc up to EXPERT, then adjust the ones below it to individual preferences. I got the following from the FM.net forum

Quote
What you do is change the difficulty to expert (maybe anything but easy- I'll get to that later), then just make the individual assists and settings how you want them. This seems to remove the hidden STM assist, which can really be intrusive and annoying.

If you want to test out the difference, just set the difficulty to expert (you can turn off the clutch if you need), find a long, wide stretch of highway, and in third gear sway left and right to drift on alternating sides (Choku-Dori, for the drifting literate). You should be able to maintain speed and continue indefinitely. Now set the difficulty to easy, then change all of the individual assists and settings to what they were previously. Try to Choku-Dori at the same speed and in the same gear, and you'll find that it's impossible to keep enough speed. This is due to the hidden STM assist that seems to be turned by the "Easy" difficulty, which the game starts you with. If you're like many people, you didn't bother switching the difficulty level before customizing the assists and options to how you wanted them.

I've experimented with the difficulties between "Easy" and "Expert", but if they have STM enabled it is nowhere near as intrusive. They may have been trying out a multiple setting STM like they use on GT5, with all but "Easy" using milder STM and perhaps "Expert" using none, but that's just speculation. Regardless, this trick makes the FH demo feel much closer to FM4, although it still doesn't seem to be quite the same (especially the rumble and force feedback!) Hopefully an STM option will exist in the full game, but until then this trick can make the game much more satisfying.

I did the test he suggested and I could definitely discern between STM on and off. The developers should make this an obvious adjustment instead of built in.

I have just been reading the Kotaku review and one of the readers comments says this

Quote
Steve Galbincea
For those disappointed with the handling, which it sounds like the author was as well, you have to select expert controls first, then choose your sub options. This disables a hidden STM system that remains enabled unless you use this method. Try it and see - it is very noticeable and actually gives the cars the feel of FM4. I highly recommend going off-road for some sideways rally after you do this - with a wheel of course!

This is an excellent game, and one that no car lover with a 360 should miss.

not sure why it should be like this,but maybe worth giving it a try

I tried the demo again using this suggestion. I couldn't say for sure if it made a difference or I was just imagining it. It still didn't feel like FM4, but it wasn't bad.

DLC Rally Expansion Pack Announced

Quote
Microsoft has officially announced the Forza Horizon Rally Expansion Pack.

Set for release on December 18, the platform holder says it'll deliver "immersive and authentic rally racing on the roughest, untamed roads of Colorado", featuring "deeper ruts, higher jumps, and new surface types to explore".


Sounds interesting, although I'm sure we'll hear some gripes from folks because this wasn't included in the original game release. If they really are going for authentic rally racing, then the stages should be longer than the four minute ones of the last couple of Colin McRae releases. And of course you have to throw in some of the old Group B rally cars.

I thought this was interesting in the Eurogamer announcement:
Quote
Five additional cars will be available exclusively to Season Pass owners. These will individually rear their heads on the third Tuesday of the month from November through until March. The first is the 2006 Lamborghini Miura Concept.

IIRC having the season pass in Forza 4 didn't nab you any more cars than buying the car packs individually, it was just cheaper.

With all the new games coming out I haven't touched this for a month, but I got burned out on XCOM:EU and so I did some racing in my De Tomaso Pantera. It's not exactly stock... I upgraded it to a PI of S700, which meant installing 615hp and the usual upgrades and even a spoiler and wing. I hopped onto the Nürburgring and turned an 8:51 on my first lap with no rewinds. Cool icon_biggrin. I uploaded it to the GTF club garage in case someone wants to take it for a spun.

I said respectable, not impressive. The important thing to remember is (I have TDU2 and mention it several times in the review ) TDU2 is far less detailed in every.single.way.possible.

I guess it's because I don't care as much about the details in the world as much as having a large world. Still, I'm getting the game (the LCE in fact) because of things in the reviews (including yours) that convinced me that even with the changes there's still a lot to like.

GT official review

Also, we have [GT] as our Race Club on this one - I took it as soon as I could slywink

From the GT review:
Quote

The game world is by no means gigantic, but in touring the outer-most ring (where the map still extends beyond that) at speeds that average around 90 miles per hour I clocked it at a respectable 17 minutes .

For comparison, in Test Drive Unlimited (and similarly in TDU2) there is a challenge to drive around the island of Oahu, in a pretty fast car, in under 60 minutes. I was able to do it with a few seconds to spare. If we swag it a bit and figure that it takes three times longer to drive around Oahu than Horizon's Colorado, we can conclude that Horizon's map represents an area one-ninth the size of Oahu. Which when you think about it is a bit disappointing since in real life, Oahu is 596.7 sq mi, while Colorado is 104,094 sq mi. Just saying.
