I can't believe there isn't a thread on this superb game. I just got it a couple of days ago, and I am extremely impressed.

Anyway, does anyone else from MR play? If you do, post some pics of your car.

Here's my currrent favourite: the Led Zeppelin tribute car. The car customization options are almost as much fun as the game itself.

How much car customization is there in Forza II? From what I've seen it looks like it's pretty extensive.

Is there an actual art editor in the game? Or are people downloading images from somewhere then slapping them onto their cars?

It's all done in game. You can't pull images from external sources.

OK. I did a much better Led Zeppelin tribute car. This time it's a British car that looks sort of like a Zeppelin, so it is more appropriate.

This one is done in washed blue heavy metal with a "Burning Hindenburg" design. It features the band's logo, with redesigned (and much better than my first ones) logos for each individual band member as well as the lyrics to "Stairway to Heaven" etched on the roof.

Suggestions for improvements are welcome, although I don't have much space left on the top of the car (about 100 or so vinyls left).

It's nothing. You should check out some of the designs on the official Forza forums. One guy painted a photorealistic Jessica Alba on his car. Someone said that it sold for 10 million credits.

On the other hand, it gets boring fast when you keep racing against people with Anime girls with bare boobs on their cars.

I redid the original Zeppelin car with the improved logos. I will replace the other pics when I get the time.

Only Black Sabbath and Deep Purple to go.

I don't have the patience to do all that. I'm sure they could have worked out a much better system. But, nevermind.

Yeah like letting people import pictures and put them on their cars. :D

I would tend to think they didn't do that so that people couldn't put porno on their cars but in reality, it hasn't stopped anyone from doing so if they take the time to actually do it in the editor.

But yes, absolutely...they should've put a photo importer in there - would've suited a lot of people a lot better. The editor is great, very feature rich - but incredibly rudimentary and time consuming. Sorry for being lazy but I'd rather just be able to import a picture of something rather than trying to recreate it out of shapes for hours at a time. :o

I don't like this game

For single player, it's not fun at all. Its like real-time strategy more, if you reduce the difficulty, you get less credit but you still completed it (with less time). So noobs can win all races as well with suggest line and low AI difficulty.

For multiplayer, it's even worse. If you find a game, you have to check many things, damage type, car class, ABS, TCS, sometimes you don't mind them, but you would (at least I would) want to have suggest line forced off. When you're in the lobby, you'll see a SMALL box scrolling thought about the details, saying:
Force off ABS
No
Force off TCS
No
...
Car Manufacturer
Any
Car Class
Any
Power
Any
Engine
Any
...
I have no idea why can't they put it in

Force off
Suggest line, ABS, STM

Car restrictions
Class A, Porsche

Moreover, it's quite buggy, you cannot see which lap the car is in when you're spectating.

That isn't buggy, it's a design oversight...

No
when you start spectating, you see "Lap 0/5" (even it may be in the fifth lap)
and then add 1 each lap

If you ever played the first one, if you started in first place with the longest car, you would have to do 1 extra lap.

Yes, I'm bumping an old thread, but I figured it'd be okay since this game is so awesome. I just started a new game the other day and I'm about 24% or so now. Just downloaded the March car pack, which is awesome. This is IMO, the best racing game ever.

Here are a couple pics I took last night:

2008 Audi S5

E46 M3

As you can see, I am a European car fanatic. (and I own a Hyundai in real life, oddly enough. I want a VW VR6!!)

I usually keep my cars pretty close to stock on Forza. I think it's more fun that way. I usually do all the suspension mods and the Stage 1 weight reduction and maybe an exhaust and intake.

Sometimes, I'll go a bit crazy and do a powertrain swap. I have a Lexus IS350 with the Twin Turbo engine from a Supra, which is a beast.

Anyone else still playing?

I dip into it every now and then.

However, I brought a PS3 recently and it came with GT5 so I've been playing that quite a bit. Having had the opportunity to play both, I think Forza is better. Admittedly, this is only GT5 Prologue and not the full game, but apart from them adding a ton more cars and possibly a damage model, I can't imagine what major changes they may implement to make it better.

The cars handle so much more realistically in Forza IMO. Anyone else share this view?

Cheaper?? I was looking on amazon and you can get it and the Marvel game for $10 plus shipping, so probably $14. This is the disc combo that has been packaged with recent 360, but they are still the full games just without the full game packaging. I may pick this up to try both games.

The cars seem A LOT more realistic in Forza. It seems like 90% of the cars in the GT series understeer way too much. Plus, the cars don't sound realistic, there's no damage, etc. I have all kinds of things I don't like about the GT series. I was a huge fan of GT until I first played Forza. Now, I can't stand playing GT. Forza is MUCH better. This is just an opinion, of course.

Here are a couple more of my cars:

A friend got me into this game recently, and I'm hooked.

I'm trying to play through Career mode from start to finish on max difficulty, and am half-way through the Regional Championships now. Yikes! I was originally trying to play through with an average, unmodified car, but as you go on it becomes impossible to win doing so.

I used to get race-times ranked in the top 30,000 or so, but when you get further into the game and your choice of car is limited for a given series, now I'm in the top 5,000s.

I've never played online, but I'd agree that it's a pity you can't set a global setting for the driver aids. If people are competing head to head (even just via time trials) everyone should be on the same settings.

Now, to figure out how the hell to beat those TVRs in the British A Car championship. Grrrr...

I am in an online racing league and let me tell you that the online is so much fun if you're playing with the right people. If you go into a random room, though, you'll get the people who think it's demolition derby.
I beat the Regional Specs with no assists and I personally think that it's the hardest one to beat, with the TVRs being the hardest event. The car has so much power and it's so easy to spin, especially with no assists. Factory spec is pretty hard too because you can't upgrade your car.
