Wait, hang on...

There's no difference between the cars aside from how they look?

So remember how in FM6 you had a series and then a class limit and you could upgrade to reach it?

This does that automatically for you now.

Ballz. I kind of liked trying different random shit to hit the points cap and see which build was faster.

I still haven't played the game, will likely get to it on Monday finally.

I also preferred handling-based upgrade tracks than pure power. Lame.

You can still tweak it yourself, but cars are "homologated" to a series/class when you buy them.

I don't like lots of power in video game cars because you can't keep the ass end in line by feel - it's all muscle memory.

Can you at least still make the gearing super short? Playing with the :dong: and rev matching is my favorite part.

Thats how you actually make cars faster on a track.

1. Yes. And so far its really, really hard to control the tail of the car. Spin recovery is neigh on impossible with all the aids turned off.

2. Yes.

well for one i matched the rotation in the game to the rotation of the wheel. that's like 80%. Added a 1% dead zone on the wheel so its not as sensitive to inputs. I also knocked about 10% off all the force feedback inputs. Way back I set the brake pedal deadzone on the back end to like 93% (so you don't have to stand on the fucking thing to get full brake force)

See, when i autoxed alot one of the things that stuck with me that my buddy Benson told me was "the car wants to go straight. have light hands when you feel like you are loosing control of the car. many times you end up manhandling the car and over-correcting." Great tip for actual cars; force feedback racing wheels? not so much. So reducing the force feedback and adding that bit of deadzone seems to not make the force feedback of the wheel generate unwanted inputs FROM the force feedback itself. For me at least. Setting the steering to 920 degrees also made it way less touchy in general.

Oh, for whomever was complaining about the VIP being neutered, they heard. Vip bros got 5 cars that are VIP only and 1 million credits.

That was me.

They're also bringing back the 2x credit boost that they nerfed.

Sweet, thanks for caring. I installed the 'app' or whatever on the xbone and realized I've been playing forza since like 08 on and off.....dang. Before that I was all about the Grand Tursimo. Played GT2, 3, and 4 when it FINIALLY came out. In fact, I got an xbox 360 to play FM2 or 3 after GT4 had been delayed over a year.

So glad I held out. Most reviews are total shit for fm7. Not gonna buy it. Loot boxes for cars, come on. I was so pumped for it too, unless there's a glaringly positive uptick in reviews, going to pass. Fuck that.

Is the racing better than forza 6? I found the understeer in that game to be intense beyond reason. It was almost impossible to get any oversteer with a level of control. And the car always wanted to push wide on a turn.

Forza 5 was great. And FH3 was also relatively good.

i only played 6 in passing, so I cannot compare.

With the wheel and shit on simulation I do have to say its VERY difficult to control the rear of the car, even more so when it has lots of power.

Im still learning tracks too. Even laguna Seca's corckscrew complex is different to 'drive' than every other racing game I've played. (laguna is a track i know well in racing games).

YMMV, my new setup is :tits: , xbone plus premium wheel plus legit chair has made the entire experience for me next level. I can't say how much of that is the game itself.

i will say now that I have many hours 'behind the wheel' I'm getting much better at car control in the game.

Yes im using the cheapest ferrari wheel they offer and a kitchen chair. Its not the best. But this is worlds more fun than a controller.

Things get more difficult with the wheel. But I find that overall I can perform decently.
