Not sure when this happened exactly, probably in the last month or so, but you may remember that I complained that despite unlocking that home in the woods, my skill songs never activated. Been playing since launch and not once I had a skill song on the radio. Well, yesterday I was driving towards a Forzathon Live event only to realize that home has been unlocked again as if I've never bought it before (I did so in like the first or second day after launch originally). I was able to buy it again and voilà, I've had two skill songs ever since. Very happy that this issue finally got fixed, now to work on beating my Forza Horizon 3 record skillchain:
Just keep in mind that if you're going for skill points, the most you can get in any combo is 10 :)

Nice Hummer, will be getting that. How are they coming up with these prices in the Forzathon shop though? I guess 600 is the new normal price.

Thanks, noticed that. Still, there's Horizon Edition cars that give bonus points on specific skills, so I'll have to choose the right one. Next week I'll probably go for a 50m+ score once I choose the right car, set it up, do some tests, etc..

The best one I've found is the BMW M6 FE car. I think it has damage bonus? I could average around 1 skill point a minute if I took that on the landing strip and just fanged it up and down. Did that with a tune from one of the big streamers... Don Joewon Song.

It depends on what you want to concentrate on: crashing into things, jumps, drifts. The Renault 5 Turbo Horizon Edition boosts all your skills in general which makes it ideal for general boosting (I used it a lot to get skill points for example with its 7x bonus), that's a good starting place.

The BMW M6 FE has a drift bonus. I use it to grind shitton of skill points on the freeway and its awesome.
There is solid risks of crashing once or twice and lose the combo. Keep in mind that what I'm aiming for here is a combo that will take a few hours probably, so I'll need to plan it out properly. I have a place or two that is ideal, not 100% foolproof but definitely ideal with the right amount of care on the accelerator. I'll just have to test out which car nets me the most points per minute for the tricks I'll be doing the most.

So Fortune Island doesnt have any frozen water in winter. Okay.
It doesn't really have a lot of water anyway. There's that lake, the coast and a pond somewhere I can't remember.

I wish there was more to do there, I feel like FH4 is geared towards getting you online. No championships has been a bummer and I LOVE FH4. I've just gone back to FH3 and finally bought the DLC for that. I miss 60fps though.

is anyone on PC ever getting into the game without DLCs/packs being available to them? I logged into FH4 today saying I can't go on Horizon life as well as not being able to use to the Mitsubishi car packs and car pass cars as well as not owning the VIP house.

Trying finish the last winter #formation weekly challenge...

Any recommendations for a good retro rally car and tune to 3 star derwent water speed zone in snow?

Currently using the 1982 Escort Cosworth RS tuned to S1 but not quite getting there.

Edit: Nevermind, just managed to complete it in the above car after a few more attempts...

What's the actual reasoning for these price increases? 800 for a Civic Type R is ridiculous. I vaguely remember that car being on previously for much cheaper.

I got it last time it was on Forzathon for 400 iirc
I read somewhere that was it was actually only 200.

Maybe they don't want to us to be hoarding a lot of FP and increased it. I have like 17k FP atm and really don't use it all that much.
17k is insane, no wonder you're not short on credits. I've only got 2k FP. I guess on paper your theory makes sense but what's the point of saving up points if they're just going to artificially inflate the price as time goes on? The main reason people are hoarding is because there's not much to actually spend it on in the first place which is a separate issue. It also screws over new players who are starting from scratch.

I like having weekly championships to do for rewards (and the new community ones have been a nice touch recently) but I really wish the Fortune Island ones would get the same treatment. Feels like there were maybe three or four weeks of those and that's it, all done.

Trying to get on the AH:

93 Mustang
Ford Crown Victoria
Hot Wheel's Twin Mill and Mustang ( I am too shit to get the mustang via the championship lol)

Every time one appears, it's gone in seconds.

I checked AH for the CV, nothing. Then checked again straight away, and one appeared, and it was gone buy the time I tried hitting buy now.

It's happened so many times now. I have missed a 93 for 15k, 5 CV's for 28k and a Twin Mill for 80k. Grrr!!!!

They have acknowledged the issues with the Forza Hub and game stats not updating.

https://support.forzamotorsport.net/hc/en-us/articles/360005367633-Forza-Hub


Current known issues:

Delay or not updating game stats.
Credits showing in the hub may reflect the total amount earned as the amount per title.
Redeeming credits but not receiving them in game.


They are also changing the Tier Payouts as well.
I thought something was up. I wasn't positive but it felt like I haven't got my rewards in a few weeks.

So after this game and the demo simply refusing to start on Win10, and giving up, I tried it again and it miraculously works. I know I've had some Windows 10 updates, so they seemed to have fixed whatever the conflict is. So that's a relief.

Got a question. I want that skeleton suit for my avatar, but of course it's out of season. Is that something that's available to earn using the Hot Wheels car every time a new in-game Autumn week starts up or was that one only available during October in the real world?

Is there a glitch or something with the mixer level constantly showing on screen?

My level is just a shade over 15 million and it just stays there....doesn’t move
