Welcome back to the Forza Week in Review, where we’re ringing in the Series 12 update for Forza Horizon 4 along with a new LEGO-themed barn find car, celebrating Forza Motorsport 6 as a Games With Gold entry in August, welcoming a new (but NOT T10) guest to #ForzaFriday, and looking ahead to Monday’s episode of “Forza Monthly.” Let’s go!



WHEEL AND PEDAL WEDNESDAY | 2012 CATERHAM R400
  • "William Chen, Franchise Manager for Turn 10 Studios, has raced go-karts and always been a car lover. ... Check out this week’s replay of Wheel & Pedal Wednesday where Johniwanna talks with William about what it’s like to own a road-legal track toy."


#FORZAFRIDAY LIVESTREAM - GUEST JEFF EASTERLING
  • "We’re welcoming another great guest to the #ForzaFriday couch today. Jeff Easterling is a Halo Franchise Writer at 343 Industries, where he helps curate the canon of Halo’s vast and ever-expanding universe, working on everything from games and novels to comic books, live events, and more. He’s no stranger to our side of the fence though, as Jeff spent 14 years working in professional motorsports before making the jump over to the gaming industry, working with teams and drivers in series like IMSA, Rolex, the ALMS, World Challenge, and more. We last touched base with him in the Fall of 2018 to help unveil the Halo showcase event in Forza Horizon 4, so welcome him to the show today starting at 3 p.m. Pacific on the official Forza Mixer and Twitch channels."


#FORZAMONTHLY
  • "Last but certainly not least, we’re days away from the launch of the next edition of “Forza Monthly.” The show kicks off on Monday, August 5 at 11 a.m. Pacific. On the show, we’ll be checking out the August update for Forza Motorsport 7, recapping the Series 12 update for Forza Horizon 4, and more."

FM7 August 2019 Update
Brian Ekberg
Friday, August 2, 2019
www.forzamotorsport.net/news/fm7_august2019_update
video: Porsche GT4 Clubsport

Quote:
A new race-ready Porsche car and some eagerly anticipated improvements to Forza Race Regulations (FRR) are at the heart of the August 2019 update for Forza Motorsport 7. Arriving on August 6, this is the final update for Forza Motorsport 7, culminating nearly two full years of post-release support for the game. In the world of FRR, this update introduces FRR disqualifications for the first time. In addition, there are also some new goodies in the Forza 7 UI that have come highly requested from the Forza community, including interval gaps in seconds and FRR-related information when spectating races.

Let’s break down all the details of the August 2019 update, starting with a look at this month’s free car, the 2019 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport.

2019 Porsche #4 Porsche Motorsport 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport
The “718” moniker added to the fourth generation Cayman harkens to the 1957-1962 mid-engine Porsche racer that made its mark in motorsport history. This GT4 Clubsport is a true track-only competitor, so the rebirth of the hallowed development number is a good fit. This time around the simplicity of the original model gives way to the benefits of technology to deliver fast and capable results. For perfect balance, the 3.8-liter naturally aspirated flat-six is mounted amidships, facing backwards (when compared to a 911 engine) with the transmission in the rear. Weight savings is partially realized through a sustainable natural-fiber weave in the doors and aero. From nose to tail this is a single-seat, race-ready track car (complete with escape hatch!) from the winningest marque in racing history. If that doesn’t sum up what this car is capable of, there is only one other thing that will: driving it.


Forza Race Regulations: Disqualifications
Over the past few months, the rollout of FRR features has been the primary focus of the Forza Motorsport 7 development team. From its beginnings as a private beta to last month’s addition of collision-based penalties, the team has taken a measured approach to introducing each new aspect of FRR to the wider Forza community. That long string of Forza Race Regulations work in Forza 7 culminates here in August with the long-awaited introduction of race disqualifications into the mix.

With the August 2019 update, players in FRR-enabled hoppers who accumulate a total of 12 seconds of penalties in a race will immediately and automatically be removed from the current race and be placed back into the Hopper Select screen. Players who are disqualified and removed from races will see a message explaining that they have been removed from the race. After accumulating 10 seconds of penalties in a race – the game will note that players have been placed in “Probation,” a warning state before disqualification at 12 seconds of penalties. Once disqualified, that player is able to matchmake for a subsequent race.

The 12-second time accumulation is the result of a great deal of in-house testing from the Forza 7 team, who were determined to find a balance between a time penalty total that was difficult for well-meaning but lesser-skilled players to accumulate, while still punishing griefers or rammers who want to ruin the races of others online. A few caveats regarding penalty times and accumulations: First, because there is no way to reduce penalty time in a race, once a player has entered the “Probation” period (after accumulating 10 seconds of penalties), there is no way to reset that and remove “Probation” status until the race is complete. Secondly, once a new race is started, penalties are completely reset for all players in the lobby. Finally, players in private FRR-enabled lobbies will not have control over disqualification time thresholds. However, players can choose to disable disqualification in the private lobby race setup menu


Mini Leaderboard Interval Gap & Spectate in Ticker
A pair of UI improvements are also arriving this month, both highly requested from the Forza Community. First up, the Mini Leaderboard (seen in the lower left-hand side of the screen when racing) will now show distance between cars in seconds. The time interval will become the new default setting with the August 2019 update, but players can set the previous interval (feet/meters) via the HUD options menu. Forza Race Regulations information, including penalties and disqualification state, will now also be viewable in the Horizontal Ticker when in Spectate mode.


If you have feedback on the August 2019 Forza Race Regulations update for Forza Motorsport 7, you can send it our way by posting in our dedicated FRR thread on the Forza Forums. While the August 2019 update is the final update for Forza Motorsport 7, feedback from the community is welcome as the team at Turn 10 continues the work to evolve and improve FRR features for the future.

AUGUST UPDATE
  • Free Spotlight car: 2019 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport
  • Forza Race Regs: Disqualifications enabled
  • HUD: gap interval by time
  • August is the final update for FM7:

Quote:
This week has been bittersweet for Your Humble Community Manager. After all, this was the week that the final update for Forza Motorsport 7 was launched and, as I was posting the announcement of the August 2019 update here on FM.net, I couldn’t help but feel a heady mix of emotions – from nostalgia to sadness to satisfaction, and some that I couldn’t quite identify.

For me, Forza Motorsport 7 showed the best of what Turn 10 is capable of. From a launch that we can generously describe as “challenged” to where we are today in August 2019, this has been an incredible journey, full of ups and downs and tremendous passion and dedication from the Forza Motorsport 7 team. That focus, effort, and care manifested itself in a whopping 35 updates over the course of nearly two full years after release. That’s more updates than any previous Forza Motorsport game received by a fair margin, and those updates were brought to life in features that made Forza Motorsport 7 a more fair, fun, and complete game month after month.

Those 35 updates included foundational features like Forza Race Regulations and updated Track Limits, new drift features, and the introduction of Race Shop. There were community-requested features too, including ghosting of lapped players in multiplayer, Class-Based Time Attack, mid-race ghosts in Rivals events, the new and improved Paint Space options, among others. Then there were more esoteric additions that broadened the scope of the game – from Photo Mode Panning Focus Mode, the aptly named Experimental Drag mode, and others. Not to mention countless fixes and improvements that covered cars, tracks, audio, UI, localization, and more. I’m proud of the game we’ve built and even more proud of the tremendous work that the entire Forza team put into this game along this journey. If you’re reading this, I’m glad you were along for the journey too.


#FORZAMONTHLY RECAP
  • Elliott Lyons gave an update on the Forza Racing Championship. "Look for more information, including the announcement of the dates of the 2019 ForzaRC season in our August 27th edition of the show."
  • Q&A with Chris Esaki "talking about one of the “big ideas” of our next game: “Built, Not Bought.” (Fast forward to the 56:30 mark for Chris’ full remarks). How that idea will manifest itself in the next game is still very much a point of discussion and debate – as Chris also mentioned on the show, we are currently in “Sprint 2” of our development timeline – but it’s worth noting that viewers will likely hear more about this “big idea” in future editions of the show."


#FORZAFRIDAY WITH GUEST DAN GREENAWALT
  • "Forza creative director Dan Greenawalt joins us today on #ForzaFriday, where we’ll be looking back at the past two years of Forza Motorsport 7 development and looking ahead to the future of Forza. In celebration of its final update, we’ll be spending the full show in Forza 7 and of course, we’ll be answering your questions along the way. Join us on the official Mixer and Twitch channels starting at 3 p.m. Pacific."
