I played Forza 2 and 3 in X360 and enjoyed a lot. I used to create some tunes myself but most of the times I used to borrow tunes from this forum in a time where “famous” tuning teams posted their cars with details, photos etc, and make them available in the game, sometimes free sometimes with credits.
I´m not good at tuning cars myself, so those tunings were crucial for me to enjoy the game in multiplayer.
But no that Im back to XONE and to this amazing Forza 6, I´m not finding those posts with tunes, with search words, with car pics etc…
Can anyone tell me which are the best tuning teams to start grabbing some tunes to enjoy multiplayer? and what key words to search?
I know, tuning your own cars is also fun, etc, etc, but don´t have the time I had when I was younger and played Forza 2 and 3 unfortunately…
PTG for a bit was doing these classic posts, but what you see now is mostly just tunings by individual players.
The people posting tunes on here are no slouches though. You should be able to find all you need for lobbies at the minimum. For leaderboard tunes, go to the specific leaderboard and download whatever shared tune is available.
The problem with searching is that in game even if you know your favorite tuners, there’s no way to know if they have a tune shared for that car unless by chance they have it noted on here. Sometimes they will appear in the suggestion menu if they are a favorite, but if they have multiple tunes for one car, usually you won’t see them all.
I miss it so much! I miss all of the garages and all of the competitions between the garages. It was always so cool to see and read in the forums. Some of the ads were spectacular. I have posted the last one that I created for a release of mine with PTG Mimic in the paint booth.
I miss all of it though. Friday’s were always a big day for new tune and paint releases. It was exciting to wait for and it also filled the lobbies with new tunes and paints every weekend. That is also how I met so many people. I am still out there in the lobbies. If you ever see me let’s talk!
Well those look like a good ol’ time. Never played forza 4 or below but I have held my own on 5 and 6. Our garage is in my signature if you would like to take a look at some of the tunes. I gave up trying to upload pics to this site for the car because its to clunky.
I’m not trying to ruffle any feathers here, so please keep the insults to a minimum. Exactly what is preventing the “community” from doing this? You can: share the paint, share the tune, organize and host events.
The leaderboards are still there, are they not? What is preventing teams from organizing competitions?
I will agree that the loss of gifting has made collaberating on tunes and paints more dificult, but it is not impossible. It seem to me it’s more a lack of effort on the part of the “community” than T10 removing a few features. If I remember correctly, back in FM2 the “community” created itself. Just something to think about.
Nobody liked the additional effort needed to make it work, terrible searching feature, lack of auction house (more so for painters), lack of gifting, and lack of competition among teams due to no way of knowing who is the best resulted in the mess we have now. Add in the fact that its very difficult to track how well your stuff is performing and overall lack of recognition for great work and it leaves you with people who have little motivation to be active.
The community responded by turning away from T10 due to T10’s focus on making the game one dimensional.
Personally I could care less about HLC’s or tuning competitions revolving around classes/cars/tracks I don’t like. Why should I bother getting high up on the leaderboard if a high spot is irrelevant for the most part. I don’t have the motivation to care. Take my attitude and apply it to some other aspect of the community a certain player loved and you’ll get to the same conclusion…why should I care if I receive no benefit?
Like you said gifting is whats killing this. The reason I don’t post up pics like I did in 5 is its just so dang clunky trying to get everything to work. I also have no artistic talent what so ever so I stick to tuning and not designing lol.
RPM doesn’t exist anymore as far as I’m aware. The lack of forzastats ended this team though we are all still friends. I haven’t changed my name because 1. I’m cheap, 2. I like the way it looks, and 3. There’s no point in joining a new team since hotlap team battles are nonexistent it seems.
Sorry toffo and anyone else I forgot. HLr is definitely still going strong.
Swerve, I completely blame t10 for this. They have catered to the casuals so much and destroyed and sense of competition that none of the hardcore players have a reason to play any longer.
Leagues are basically based on participation, there’s no measurable way to check leaderboards so I have no reason to hot lap or tune. Havery done a few 3rd party race series but that’s about all. Too bad forza can organize leagues to actually have meaning.
I’ve now gone elsewhere where leaderboards mean something or the leagues are real leagues with points that aren’t based on participation like iracing, raceroom, pcars, etc.
