So I was just watching Blackpanthaa's gameplay video of him driving around Surfur's Paradise, and it looks to me like every single skyscraper in that city is a copy/paste job. I hope you don't care too much about building details, or you'll be disappointed. At least the road layout looks pretty accurate compared to the real city!

Okay, I'll give you that much. But the car list variety is still miles better, ditto with the upgrade system, plus I also hear it plays well with wheels according to the vid's I'll link below. There's no input delay in the MotoGames vid, it's just the footage from the capture card isn't synced well with the gopro footage.

Also, the Kotaku article said that you needed gold to play online on PC, however a micro$oft rep confirmed it false.

I'm not talking about input lag, I'm talking about the actual physics themselves. The cars just feel really floaty and unresponsive. I even asked MotoGames on one of their videos a while ago if the wheel physics were any good, and they even said no. I'm not really sure what TheSlapTrain was playing if he said he loves the force feedback. I mean, doesn't he play Assetto Corsa? Whatever, that doesn't matter anyway. The vast majority of people on console will be playing with a controller. I'm just wondering how the wheel-using PC community will respond as this is their first Forza title!

A lot depends on the ability to create custom events and races.

I don't know much about Forza Horizon, as this is my First Forza :D

Nice to see some good news, also great to see they are taking out the cheaters wrecking leader boards :2thumbsup:



Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to October S14th! If you’re not sure what that means, then you need to open up Forza Horizon 3 ASAP and check out the #Forzathon tab because today (Friday), you’ve got a chance to win a 1994 Nissan Silvia K’s (S14) car, one of the most requested cars from the Forza community. Keep in mind that this challenge is only available today, so if you’re reading this after Friday, you’re too late. Nonetheless for those of you who still have time, read on!

October S14th #Forzathon

The October S14th #Forzathon event has arrived, and with it, your chance to add one of the most requested cars in Forza history to your garage. While the S14 event is undoubtedly the most anticipated #Forzathon event this week, it’s not the only one. There are three events happening today, details of which you can see here:


While credit and XP bonuses are nice, let’s be real; everybody wants that S14. The “Initial Drift King” event challenges players to earn 35,000 points in a drift zone with a very specific (and very relevant) car. Let’s take a closer look at the challenge:



First up, the car. You’ll be driving the 1985 Toyota Sprinter Trueno GT Apex (aka the “Initial D” car). Born and bred for drifting, this is perhaps the most spot-on car/challenge combination imaginable. While the Trueno is drift-able from the outset, you’re best served by finding a drift-ready tune to help you out. At the Horizon Festival, check out the Garage tab and then click on the Tuning option, where you’ll be able to search for new tunes for whatever class you wish to run the event in.



For me, I waffled between an S1 tune from Skyssen and an A-Class tune by TUS Chunky before eventually landing on the latter setup, which suited my skill level better. You should use whatever you feel is right for your driving abilities and preferences.



Next up, that all important maxim: location, location, location. While you only have to score 35,000 points – not a lot, even for a mediocre drifter like me – you need to find a Drift Zone that leaves you plenty of room. After all, trying to nail 35K points in a Zone where 25K is worth three stars doesn’t leave you much room for error. Personally, I was looking for 3-star zones of 50K points and above as my guide for where to attempt the challenge. (My favorite of the bunch? The Byron Suburbs Drift Zone, which sets 80K points as its three-star target).

Once you’ve got your car, your tune, and the area you want to compete in, it’s just a matter of careful practice (and some decent throttle control). Watch out for oncoming traffic and don’t give up and soon enough you’ll have that new S14 waiting for you in your garage. And what a beauty she is, complete with an optional bodykit upgrade fitting Rocket Bunny and Liberty Walk parts and bringing the car all the way up to S1 class.



If you missed the S14th #Forzathon event, don’t worry, there will be more opportunities to earn the Nissan Silvia K’s in the future. And we’ve got more #Forzathon events coming up – next weekend, you’ll be able to win the Ford #17 Falcon FG and, at the end of the month, a chance to win the Halo Warthog. Don’t miss out!

You can see all of the changes for today’s update in the full story.

Finally managed to download FH3 again, after the Win10 update. Previous file was broken.
I will try to boot FH3 tomorrow. 8-)

It looks like they do maintain the game very well. Hope they will keep this up and not abandon after 3 months or so like EA. The Crew has set new benchmarks regarding that with monthly updates and weekly maintenance after release.
