    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.

    I haven't spent a lot of time playing this yet, but I love this game so far. Though I'd really like to pick up the steering wheel soon :)

    I love this game, I really can't get over how brilliant it is.

    This is my Golf. Class S, upgraded as far as it will go and looking perfectly how I want it.

    I only made this because it was a semi-easy logo and I fail at art... :p

    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).

    I don't have the patience or artistic ability to do anything like that

    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.

    Thats cool.

    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. :eek:

    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.
