Some Questions: VIP-Bonus? Wheelspins on LVLUP? and more

Maybe its already known to everyone and PGG is already working on it, But maybe they are Bugs that i only have, so i thought: Why not ask in the Off. Forum then. So here we go:

1.) No Wheelspins on LVLUP? I still get the Message but ther Wheelspins are not added? I can accept that they were removed from the Cheap Cars but from LVLUP? Why the need for LVL Up then?
2.) Where is the VIP Spin-Bonus? Since the reintroduction of the 1000 Credits Spin, i expected to the VIP Bonus to take effect But no: When i get 1000Credits, i get 1000Credits. No double VIP Bonus.
I also checked the Amount of Cash before and after an CASH-SPIN. And the Account rose only by the ammount i got from the SPIN… (in this Case it was 5000 Credits)
3.) Why is the Cockpit View with Roadsters and Convertibles during DUSK OR DAWN without Sunglasses AND/OR Helmets that much darker? Its - Subjective . 40% darker, i barely cannot see the Road markings. Especialy Shelby Cobra als in the Example:

VS:

(2 screenshots seconds apart. And thats not even the worst comparison i have had.)

And yes - Nearly forgot:
5.) Why are the Nights that short? I mean: The sun goes on the one Side down, and a few seconds later on the Other side UP. Will this be fixed? I dont think, the Mexicans nights are only 15 Minutes short in Real.

I mean this quesions in no offense, only asking polite,
So i hope to get some answers and no hate Posts. Thanks in Advance.

  1. Last time I played I got a wheelspin every time I leveled up, not sure what’s happening to yours.

  2. As far as I know the VIP double credit bonus only applies to race winnings.

  3. Hopefully it’s just a bug that will be fixed. It happens to a lot of cars.

  4. No idea. I liked the longer nights from FH4, but people complained that they didn’t like racing at night.

When you level up after the race you’re forced to use wheelspin you get. That is your wheelspin you get for leveling up.

“When you level up after the race you’re forced to use wheelspin you get. That is your wheelspin you get for leveling up.”

That’s right, but even when I get XP from drifting or something else, i get the animation that shows the last XP-Points completing my former level, and showing the message: “You earned a wheelspin.” But normally i should also get the message “Press Enter to Spin it Now” … This is missing.

Other example: i drive the Goliath A LOT since a few days. (to perfect my Jesko) often more than only 1 Round.
So when i complete it, i get more LVL-Ups. But still only 1 Wheelspin.
Precise Example: I drove 3 Rounds yesterday and got 4,5 Level Ups after finishing the Race on 1st. So in Theory i should also get 4 Wheespins.
But - as you might guess - i only got one Wheelspin. And that was the one that was forced to Spin. My Counter of Wheelspins was still at NONE (instead of 3).

Ok, then it changed for FH5 to previous titels.
In the last 2 Games (i own and know) the VIP Bonus also applied to Normal Wheelspins.

I didnt like the long nights either, but the Mexican nights are a Joke. I think no one would complain if they were 5 Minutes Long (i mean the timespan “From Dusk till Dawn” ;-)) since the days have 30 Minutes+

The VIP bonus did not effect wheelspins, that was changed since FH4 where you too only get in wheelspins the amount of money the wheel of fortune shows.

The night circle seems a bit shorter in FH5, but it not as short as some mentioned with only seconds to last - for me on a PC it lasts about 12-15 minutes - okay it is shorter than the day time circle, but the devs have to take care for any fotosensitive players out there, who can not afford to drive at the highway for example at night because of the flickering caused through the streetlamps. So I totally understand to shorten that period a bit.

  • When you on the Landingstrip at the Horizon Festival, you can see it on the Eastside how the Sun goes down, the clouds are getting blue, and just at the time this happens (or 30 seconds later), the clouds on the WESTside are getting pink, orange and so on - So the Sun is directly setting. I noticed it on the first day of my play. Its only seems longer during a race WITH a Time Progression, when the time changes to Night. I drove the Colossus with start Time Late Afternoon, and pretty soon after the start i got in the night, But the night stayed untill the end of the Race.
    As i wrote, i would really like it if the NIght was 5-10 Minutes long. If you want, i can post some screenshots.

  • Ok, thats an helpfull information. So they know it and are working on a Fix for that.

  • I play on PC, But it also happened after the last Season Update.

I have also noticed wheelspins not being added after level up, despite a wheelspin notification. I play on a Series S, and a friend has the same problem. This started after the last season update.

I was considering posting a similar thread to highlight the problem. I couldn’t understand why more people hadn’t complained.

The option to collect immediately is also missing from the onscreen notification.

I haven’t gotten a spin on the level up for more than a week. I like to save them up so I didn’t notice at first. I opened a ticket and it was promptly closed, with the explanation that it was a known problem.

They appear to have fixed the level up wheelspin awards. Last night I received several, and the immediate claim notification is back.

Maybe they will consider gifting us the spins we’ve missed since the last season update, but I’m not holding my breath :rofl:

I spoke too soon, wheelspins were not received after level ups again last night.

This must be another case of a bug that doesn’t affect everyone. If it did, I’m sure there would be more interest in this thread.

1 - If you are not getting wheelspins when levelling up thats a big problem, apparently you are not the only one. People with this problem are a minority but yup, not getting a single wheelspin is a bummer.

2 - You dont get double credits having vip lol. What you get is jus two super wheelspins every month? cant remember if its every month or just when they see fit.

3 - Yes. Its a lighting problem since release, but at this point dont expect it to be fixed. We need to get used to it. If you cant drive in cockpit view, switch to chase view. Thats the only way.

4 - I also noticed this. Night transitions are just too fast. But dont get me wrong, i prefer it that way. AT LEAST UNTIL THEY FIX THE FRIKKIN LIGHTING SYSTEM.

I only drive in the Cockpit view (for the best Immersion). Except for Eliminator, because the overview of Car Drops

Here is another example of what i really ment:

Imagine this (PGG, i mean you!) in an Race where you in the lead and you see barely nothing. You are … F****ed then.

Whats to “Lol” here? I only asked because i knew it otherway from the previous games. Now i know this better and am not whining about.
And its every Week but i also can live without it. And i never used glitches or something other.

BUT Since they sold the VIP Pass as an extra, i imagine, the buyer (me) likes to know what he gets for his money.

Edit:
Another extreme comparison:
