I see that there seems to be a lot of people playing this game lately. For anyone who is not yet on it, I have created an "XBS Car Club". Anyone is welcome to join, just let me know or send an invite request.

For those not aware, the car club allows you to share cars. Quite a few have been added and I will be adding a bunch more soon myself.

Anyway, if you haven't gotten this game yet and you see it on sale somewhere, pick it up. I highly recommend it.

I will be posting (and I hope others will as well) their special designs or cars. I created my favorite car to date. I will be posting it right away, stay tuned.

I always wanted to do a "Batman" car but never took the time to do one. So I finally decided to give it a shot and this is what I came up with below.

All of it is self designed. I created the Batman logo out of around 35 shapes. Once I had the logo, I needed additional logos so I designed the DC Comics one next. That one is only around 20 shapes. I next added Batman himself and was shocked to find it only took me around 50 shapes... I was expecting to have to use hundreds. Then the last addition is the batman spotlight which was around 30 shapes.

The total time it took to design was around 8 to 10 hours which is REALLY fast for me.

The images are large so I put them in spoiler tags:

Haha thanks, a lot of it is trial and error type of stuff. You take a shape you *think* can fit in an area and try and bend it and a lot of times it just doesn't work so you have to try another shape. I generally just throw on a movie or tv show or something while doing it.

Thanks for the Lambo pixel, I was driving around in that the other day ;)

I've had the game a while now, but got sucked into playing more Halo campaign and finishing the Need for Speed Most Wanted "campaign" (unlocking all 10 most wanted cars). Going to be playing more Forza though for sure.

For those of you who rent, this game does NOT need a code to play online.

I'll have a used copy from Best Buy on Monday or Tuesday (hopefully Monday since no XBSHL game for us that day).

I had a $25 Best Buy card so it only cost me 29.xx It would've been 8 dollars less but I got express shipping. In store wasn't available near me.

I added my new "Spider-Man" car to the first post in this thread. The latest one took me just over 5 hours from start to finish. Both cars are now available in the garage to anyone in the car club.

Not sure what I will work on next but I will update the thread if I figure something out.

I added a new car to the garage (although I didn't really add it as much as update the green Beetle). There are 4 shots of it updated in the first post of this thread. Here is the first one:

http://xbox-sports.com/uploads/pixelslash/cars/sevenup_1_th.jpg (http://xbox-sports.com/uploads/pixelslash/cars/sevenup_1.jpg)

I have no idea why I chose 7up as I never drink it. I tried to get a better picture of the glass on the roof but unfortunately the camera is pretty limited when it comes to hovering over the car. I was pretty happy with the outcome but the "Cool Spot" character did take quite a bit to design. I initially started it thinking it would be fast since it is just a damn spot but the shoes and hands made it quite a bit more difficult.

Just a note, I have updated the Spider-Man car in the garage. I didn't realize there were no drift challenges online so having a purely drift car seemed pointless so I knocked it down from an "S" class to an "A" class and made it a much better car to drive.

That 7up car is awesome. I know it will sound stupid but that lemon and line are crazy cool. I can put shapes together and make some things here and there, but what you do has that artist's touch. You put all those extra details, textures. shadows. etc. onto things that just make it so cool. I hate guys like you for that reason ;)

Stupid question: Where do you find the Car Club stuff?

Played 2 hours earlier (single player of course) and went from 250th to 210th or so :rofl: I also get 25% off of upgrades already too. Found one barn. I'm a little disappointed with the hidden objects. Not only do they seem very limited, but the cars don't seem to appear until the game is ready for them to do so. Hopefully I'm wrong. I refuse to buy treasure maps because that's the whole point of the game for me.

I'll be playing it in a bit and will throw my music on so I expect to progress fairly far (in whatever you can do without racing :chuckle:).

Oh, I also have one quick travel unlocked that I can travel for free to :D

Oh wow. Thanks. I was looking in the multiplayer menu.

And that is unfortunate about the barn things. I thought their whole selling point was that if you explored enough, you could get some good stuff. Lame.

Thanks for the reply.

I sent you an invite to the car club.

I found all 100 signs but deadhead did help me find 2. I don't think you need a treasure map although it is tough to find some of them.

The barns will show up as you play. Even if you find the barn, the car won't be there until you unlock that barn. I think it took around the 50% mark for me to get all 9 barns.

jujimum
Dec. 12th, '12, 1:16 am
Thanks, guys. Got the invite.

I'm going to be Debbie Downer and say this game isn't what I thought it would be :( It's OK and it's killing time for me but I was hoping the single player (specifically the exploration) would be better. I quoted that guy in the other thread saying it rewards those players who see a barn and think, "Hey, what's in there?" Well, that's TOTALLY not the case obviously. So stupid.

I don't play these games online so it's already kind of just "Hmmm, why am I playing still?" :rofl: I should've known in advance but my definition of Free Roam and theirs is quite different. I did find one area that I can actually go off the road and just do whatever.

A while back...a LOOONG while back my brother and I loved this game called 4X4 EVO or something. That exploration was some of the best I've ever seen (not just a racing game). You actually needed wenches and everything to get to certain areas. We had a friggin' blast taking turns exploring.

We really didn't start playing it until last week or so. With most of these games, we get a few races in and they get a tad boring.

I know I would enjoy a "race day" where we could play one night. There are many race modes I haven't tried yet really like Infected and Cat and Mouse. Maybe we can get together on Thursday or Friday and see if we can get 6 - 8 people for some racing.

What is funny is I don't really care about those times as long as I get 1st in my race. The part that I like competing is the speed zone cameras. :rofl:

To be honest, in Forza 3 I really tried to get faster and faster times on races but for some reason this game I don't. I think it is the way it is presented. On FM3 you would get a list of where you are in the world after the race. So at times you would be in the top 5,000 or whatever. So when that happened I would try and get into the top thousand or whatever.

This game doesn't really have that. It is more about racing your friends. I kind of miss the old way they did it.

Cat and Mouse, at least when it was user created games, was a total blast. You never hear so many stupid grown men giggle like girls. What's fun about that game is, it's a great stress reliever since it doesn't matter if you crash. That's the whole point.

We always ended a league night with Cat and Mouse and it seemed like no one ever left the races pissed off :chuckle:

Well, one thing I don't like is how "forgiving" this game is. I need to get used to that. The old Forza games if you put one wheel in the dirt, you could lose a race because of it. Bump a wall and you're definitely done. That's not the case with this game. I was racing some of the car club's ghosts (my favorite thing to do) and, I won't name names, someone just launched right past a turn. If you tried that in any other Forza game, you'd be dead. Not only would you lose a ton of time, but your car wouldn't be drive-able. No one was wrong, but I had to follow suit to beat the time and that sucked. Again, I just have to get used to doing that stuff I guess.

Anyway, because of those challenges, I have no started competing in events so I when I get 1st place, I hit X to see where you bastards are at. What's cool is you can challenge the person right above you OR the 1st place person. You can "change rival" before the race. Last night I picked the person above me. Beat that. Then picked the person in 1st. Took me a couple of tries but I beat that one :devil:

But again, back in the old Forza I'd actually throw out a winning time of mine (quit the race) if I knew my ghost would hit the wall or something. Meaning, unless it was a clean race, I didn't let the game record it :rofl: I'm not doing that with this version. If anyone challenges my times, they will see me hit a wall, take a "shortcut", or whatever :chuckle:

For me, it's all about racing my friends or people in the club. You can still get that list, pix. You just have to use the filter. When I was in 1st place out of our car club, my rival was a random (well, unknown). The reason I like racing my friends is that one of the leaders had a time of 0:00:.44 when 2nd place and below took over a minute to finish the race. So basically a lot of those times don't matter to me.

I will spend a lot of my time trying to beat the Car Club's scores or trying to provide times that can't be beaten ;) In Forza's past, I've been in the Top 100 and even Top 10 (I feel like one time I was THE top racer on one track). I'll just settle for leap frogging people I know :D I got that message in game when Dark beat my speed zone time. I had to go back and do it. Then I saw I was close to someone else and thought I'd go for them too :P

One thing about about the Camera things is I wish you couldn't crash for X seconds after the camera takes the photo. Reason is you can just smash into a wall as long as it's right after the photo.

Agreed with everything you said.

I liked doing the clean runs and that it use to show who did the race with a clean run compared to one where guys hit walls. However I knew this game didn't have that prior to buying it since it was a more arcade style. So it wasn't disappointing to me in that regards.

I will likely ask for FM4 for xmas since that has more tuning and things like that. I need to find out if I can port my cars from Horizons into FM4. I know you can the other way round.

Yeah, not a car guy at all and have NO interest in that part of it. Too much tweaking and fine-tuning for me. Plus, you do one thing and it messes up another. Ugh. Hated it. All I did was put in certain numbers into a calculator that these guys made and they'd give you a base setting. Now, you could tweak it or not depending what you wanted. I typically left them alone and just raced with that car. Like I said, I used to post decent times back then too (of course I use a LOT of helpers :agree:).

So for me, I was the driver and the calculator was my pit crew :chuckle:

In all fairness, it was the right move to make since it was an off-road portion of the track. I'm just used to the older Forza games where that would just destroy time and/or your car.

But yeah, it was the right move.

Oddly enough, I think the two times I beat were yours and Novicains (different tracks) :rofl: They were the only two I had opened so far.

Well, in my second day of playing I finished driving all 216 roads :rofl: Still missing about 14 upgrades but haven't made a much of an effort to look for them yet.

I also had the niece and nephews watching me so of course I was just smashing into everything I saw. The 3-year-old was laughing so hard that his body was shaking and he was falling into me while I played. Let the niece play a bit and she started out rough but was quickly getting better before they left the house.

I have 3-4 fast travels completely unlocked. Tried a race against a helicopter and lost that one. I've always hated Corvettes in this game. Not sure if they are RWD but I hate RWD cars in general. Even with helpers on I just can't drive 'vettes really well at all. This one wasn't too bad so I figure if I do it again I can win the race.

Since I play with helpers, I bumped the difficulty up to Hard.
