Quote:
With Mechberg on vacation, it is my honor to present to you the Week in Review. Ok, he wrote the first section but the rest is on me. So let’s get into this.


APRIL CONTENT UPDATE
  • "The April 2019 update features numerous improvements to the game, including the April Spotlight car, the 2018 McLaren Senna. At the top of the list is the latest iteration of Forza Race Regulations (FRR) which includes new UI improvements. With the latest version, incurred penalties will now affect a player’s final placement on the leaderboard. The team here at Turn 10 is still working hard on the FRR feature set and I know players are interested in when the public FRR beta will begin."
  • "Elsewhere in the April 2019 update, we’ve got audio improvements to several cars based on community feedback and we’ve also unlocked a huge list of previously locked “exclusive” cars in the game. As of this update, the only cars that remain locked are the Forza 7 pre-order cars and cars specifically tied to career mode rewards."


EVENTS
  • Hopper rotation
  • Leagues rotation
  • Specialty Dealer set coming April 9
  • #Forzathon: Foust Driver Gear, Honda NSX-R '92


STREAMING UPDATES
  • "It’s a huge streaming stardom week for DaCopilot who kicked off her own show this last Sunday. She was also this week’s guest on #WheelandPedalWeds with me. Lastly but not leastly, you will find her guest hosting for Mechberg today on #ForzaFriday. "
  • "And get ready for the next edition of #ForzaMonthly coming April 15 at 11 a.m. Pacific."

Quote:
After a week of spring break in sunny southern California, Your Humble Community Manager is rested and ready to recap another week of Forza news. From the latest update for Forza Horizon 4 to the launch of the first Forza Race Regulations public beta, plus Monday’s April edition of “Forza Monthly,” it’s busy around these parts, so let’s jump right in!


FORZA RACE REGULATIONS PUBLIC BETA
  • "You’ve been asking for it and now it’s finally here – the first public beta hopper featuring Forza Race Regulations (FRR) is now officially open and available in Forza Motorsport 7. This feature is the result of a lot of ongoing work within Turn 10 and we’re happy that we can share this first public iteration with the Forza Community as we continue to evolve FRR in the future. You can find the FRR hopper by heading to Multiplayer in Forza Motorsport 7 and navigating to the “Forza Race Regulations Cycled Production – Beta” hopper." [more]
  • "While we invite FRR discussion with other players on both the forums and Discord, if you have specific feedback for the Turn 10 developers about your experience or if you have suggestions about FRR, please post it in this thread on the Forza Forums" http://aka.ms/FRRFeedback
  • "As we’ve said in the past, the Forza Race Regulations feature is in continued development at Turn 10, and players can expect more updates in May and beyond for the FRR feature set. Look for more details on all these updates in the future."


#FORZAFRIDAY LIVESTREAM
  • "On today’s episode of #ForzaFriday we’ll be joined by Turn 10’s Andy Beaudoin, talking about his career in the games industry and the work he’s done here at Turn 10 as a design director. The show starts at 3 p.m. Pacific on the Forza Mixer and Twitch channels."


FORZA MONTHLY LIVESTREAM - APRIL 15
  • "The next edition of “Forza Monthly” arrives on Monday, April 15 and we’ve got a fun show planned for you. We’ll be recapping the latest updates for Forza Horizon 4 and Forza Motorsport 7 with guests from both Playground Games and Turn 10, and welcoming Formula Drift driver Vaughn Gittin Jr. to the show to talk about his latest projects, the Formula D season, and drifting in Forza from the perspective of a pro. The show kicks off on Monday starting at 11 a.m. Pacific, so don’t miss it!"

Quote:
Welcome to another edition of the Forza Week in Review, where we’re coming off the back of a huge episode of Forza Monthly. Airing this past Monday, the April episode welcomed special guests from both Turn 10 and Playground Games, as well as professional drift driver, Formula D competitor, and Nürburgring drift-conqueror Vaughn Gittin Jr. to the show.


DRIFTING THE RING
  • video: Vaughn Gittin Jr., King of the Ring
  • "You can see a brand-new edit of Gittin’s King of the Ring video above; a video that will no doubt inspire other Forza 7 players to try and emulate the feat in the game. In fact, one such creation already exists, produced by the inimitable Don Joewon Song, who didn’t just manage to drift the Ring, he created a video based on a single run of the Ring. There’s no long introduction needed here; watch Don’s “Virtual King of the Ring” video for yourself:
  • video: Don Joewon Song's Virtual Drift King of the Ring


EVENTS
  • Hoppers - next rotation on April 16
  • Leagues - new "Burning Rubber" Season starts April 20
  • Specialty Dealer - April 23 set


FORZA STREET & FORZA MONTHLY
  • "On Monday we launched Forza Street, a new expression of Forza available on Windows 10 devices and coming to iOS and Android. For more on the game, check out the segment on Monday’s episode of Forza Monthly where I sat down with the Forza Street design director Andy Beaudoin to talk about the game. (Fast forward to the 56:00 mark to see the conversation.) Forza Street was created to welcome a new audience of players and has been developed as a Forza product from the very beginning by Turn 10 alongside an external partner. In 2018, the game was released in limited regions for early testing and feedback under the code name of “Miami Street” prior to its global launch. To keep up to date with the latest Forza Street news, you can follow the Forza Street Facebook page."
  • video: Forza Monthly | April


FORZA FRIDAY & LIVESTREAM SCHEDULE
  • "On today’s episode of #ForzaFriday I’ll be joined today by Chase Combs from the Turn 10 audio team. Chase was on Monday’s Forza Monthly this week to talk about the audio improvements that were part of the April update for Forza Motorsport 7 and, during today’s show, we’ll dive deeper into those improvements and talk about Chase’s career in the gaming industry and here at Turn 10. The show begins at 3 p.m. Pacific on our Mixer and Twitch channels, so don’t miss it."
  • "Wrapping up the week, here’s a look at the streams coming to the Forza channels next week. See you then!"

Welcome to the Forza Week in Review, where we’re getting ready for the next updates in both Forza Horizon 4 and Forza Motorsport 7, as well as prepping for the next edition of “Forza Monthly.” All of these various efforts arrive on Tuesday, May 7, which obviously makes that a busy day in the world of Forza. Tuesday will be here before you know it, so let’s recap this week and focus on what we’re excited about next week.


FORZA RACE REGULATIONS
  • "Earlier this week, we held our first live Q&A for Forza Race Regulations on our Forza Discord server. During the hour-long discussion, the Turn 10 development team behind the FRR system answered questions from the Forza community on the current and future state of FRR in Forza Motorsport 7. If you head over and sign up to be a part of the Forza server, you can take a look at the full list of questions and answers (look for the #frr-dev-qa-answers channel, in particular). Topics like more granular time penalties (which will be included in next week’s Forza Motorsport 7 update) were commonly asked, as well as the subject of collisions coming to the FRR system, which will be added in a future update, though the specific timeframe is yet to be determined.
  • "Look for additional FRR development team Q&As on Discord in the future as we continue to evolve the FRR feature set."


EVENTS
  • Hoppers - current list and May 10 list
  • Leagues - Vintage Sport GT, Elite Factory Racers, 911 '14, R Class
  • Specialty Dealer - May 7 list


#FORZAFRIDAY
  • "We’ll be welcoming Turn 10’s Carlos Sanchez to today’s edition of #ForzaFriday. As executive producer for Turn 10’s Publishing team, Carlos brings a wealth of experience from his career in games to T10. Today we’ll be chatting with Carlos about his career, his work at Turn 10 and with Playground Games, all while hanging out and playing Forza Horizon 4 with viewers. The show starts at 3 p.m. Pacific so bring your questions and enjoy the show!"


FORZA MONTHLY | MAY - discussion
  • "Tuesday, May 7 is the day for our next broadcast of “Forza Monthly” and we’ve got a great show planned for you. Airing directly after the Series 9 Stream from Playground Games, we’ll be diving deep into topics from all over the Forza universe. We’ll be joined by members of the Turn 10 publishing team to talk about the Series 9 update for Forza Horizon 4, followed by a look at what’s happening in Forza Motorsport 7 with members of the Forza Race Regulations dev team. In addition, we’ll be diving into “process of concept” at Turn 10 with design director Chris Esaki and art director Scott Lee, giving viewers insight into how the Motorsport team approaches the all-important “concept” phase of development."
  • "Last but not least, we’ll be joined by our special guest, IndyCar driver and team ambassador with the Lazarus Esports team Conor Daly, who will be talking about his busy month of May, which will include competing in the 103rd running of the Indianapolis 500. The show kicks off at 11 a.m. Pacific, so don’t miss it!"

THE SECRETS BEHIND THE EXQUISITE HANDLING OF FORZA MOTORSPORT
Turn 10 converts raw data into emotive simulation.
By Andy Kelly
This feature originally ran in issue 330 of PC Gamer UK.
https://www.pcgamer.com/the-secrets-behind-the-exquisite-handling-of-forza-motorsport


Quote:
...

The traditional method of making cars feel weighty in driving games involves adding to the moment of inertia. A larger moment of inertia means the object is more resistant to changes in its motion. “But that can make the car feel like a battleship, understeering more than it should,” says Greenawalt. “Most cars understeer naturally with how they’re set up on the suspension, but this larger moment of inertia really makes them understeer like crazy. And this makes things like drifting difficult, because you can’t recover very well.”

But when designing Forza, Greenawalt and his team decided that the moment of inertia was sacred and should never be touched. “To make our cars feel controllable and heavy, we have two main strategies. One is the buffer we put on the analogue stick. Depending on how quickly you move the stick, and how much you move it, you’ll never get your full input immediately.

“We tune this based on how we’ve seen players play. People generally return to centre quicker than they go out from the centre, so we have unique buffers tuned in there.

I’ve never driven a Lamborghini Sesto Elemento or an Acura NSX, but what I love about Forza is how it makes me feel like I have.

“The other strategy is having clamps and scales on how much yaw, which is the torque of the car, can be applied to the spinning skater. Using these clamps, we can slow a car down without changing the moment of inertia. When you play with simulation steering you turn this feature off, as well as a lot of the buffers, but even I have trouble playing Forza like this with a [gamepad’s] thumbstick.”

Today we’ve got the details on this week’s updates for Forza Horizon 4 and Forza Motorsport 7, as well as a splash-and-dash of Forza Esports news as we look ahead to the future of the Forza Racing Championship. Welcome to the Week in Review!


(Selected quotes; read the full article at the link or on the Forza Hub app.)

MAY 2019 UPDATE & INDYCAR - discussion
  • "We’re just over three weeks away from the 103rd running of the Indianapolis 500 and we’re celebrating in Forza Motorsport 7 in a big way with the May 2019 update. Kicking off the update are six new Spotlight cars: four 2019-model IndyCar racecars, a Chevy ZR1 pace car, and the 1969 Ford Brawner Hawk III. That final car is a special one for IndyCar fans, as it’s the car in which racing legend Mario Andretti won the 1969 Indy 500. What you might not know is that the Brawner Hawk was Andretti’s backup car, driven after he crashed his original Lotus in qualifying (oh, and Super Mario also won the race by nearly two full minutes!) With a 50th anniversary livery celebrating Mario’s historic win, this is a classic piece of motorsport history that every Forza fan should drive."

  • "New cars means new events! In addition to IndyCar hoppers, we’ve got a pair of IndyCar Rivals events, including one starring the Brawner Hawk at Sonoma as our Spotlight event of the month. Oval fans won’t want to miss the Brickyard Bounty Hunter, our final Bounty Hunter event in Forza Motorsport 7. This time, you’ll be driving the 2019 IndyCar of your choice and you’ll be going up against ten real-life IndyCar drivers and owners, all competing to top the leaderboard." Bounty Hunter discussion
  • "The May 2019 update for Forza 7 also includes some important feature updates, including ghosted back markers across multiple modes in the game. Over in the Forza Race Regulations (FRR) world, we’ve got a more granular penalty system, with penalties now being doled out in .25-second increments, and players can now enable a standard FRR rule set in private lobbies. Related to those private FRR lobbies, we’re aware that players cannot Spectate these races. That will be fixed in a future update for the game."
  • Video: Conor Daly on Forza Monthly
  • "One more note before we sign off, if you’re an Instagram user make sure you’re following the official Forza IG account this weekend. 2017 IndyCar champ Josef Newgarden will be taking over the IG channel for the weekend, giving followers a behind-the-scenes look of Team Penske’s Indy 500 preparations."


#AlongForTheRide livestream
  • "Long-time visitors to FM.net will remember Johniwanna’s written series “Heavy Metal Affliction,” where he would spotlight interesting cars and their owners. We’ve taken that HMA concept and evolved it into a video series that we’re calling “Along For the Ride.” Episode 1 featured a Honda Civic widebody that was rebuilt to resemble a Renault 5 Turbo. This past Wednesday, we aired Episode 2, a loving tribute to the classic Jeep Grand Wagoneer. https://youtu.be/Ij5kYdh37Kw "
  • Each week, alongside the short films, Johniwanna hosts a livestream featuring the owners and other guests to talk about their well-loved rides. Look for Episode 3, which will debut alongside our livestream broadcast at 1 p.m. Pacific on Wednesday, May 16."


#FORZAFRIDAY LIVESTREAM
  • "Hot on the heels of the Series 9 update for Forza Horizon 4, we’ll be welcoming Terrance Newell to today’s edition of #ForzaFriday. As part of Turn 10’s publishing team, Terrance has been working with Playground on the Forza Horizon series since the very beginning. We’ll be chatting with “T” (as he’s known) about his career as an art director and what it’s like working on the Horizon series. Bring your questions and get ready to race in both Forza Horizon 4 and Forza Motorsport 7! The show starts at 3 p.m. Pacific on the official Forza Twitch and Mixer channels."

In today’s edition of the Forza Week in Review, we’re enjoying Autumn in Forza Horizon 4, celebrating the upcoming 103rd Indy 500 in Forza Motorsport 7, welcoming guests to #ForzaFriday, and wondering when some intrepid painters are going to get around to recreating these liveries in Forza. Let’s get to it!


(Selected quotes; read the full article at the link or on the Forza Hub app.)

BRICKYARD BOUNTY HUNTER UPDATE
  • "Need some proof that our IndyCar guest drivers are taking the “Brickyard Bounty Hunter” Rivals event seriously in Forza Motorsport 7? Consider Conor Daly who, earlier in the week, did a 192-lap session to end up P21 in the world leaderboard (and just ahead of fellow IndyCar drivers like James Hinchcliffe and Josef Newgarden). That’s nearly the equivalent of a full Indy 500 running, just to knock a few hundredths of a second off his time. Competitive much, Conor?"
  • Prize chart and current lap times
  • Twitter: Simon Pagenaud playing Forza at IMS


#AlongForTheRide livestream
  • "In the latest episode of our new series “Along For the Ride” we chat with Brian Pollock about his 1970 Ferrari Dino 246 GT. Pollock is one of only a few original owners of this classic Italian sports car and has kept his Dino in pristine condition, while still actually driving it. We debuted the episode earlier in the week as part of an hour-long livestream where host Johniwanna sat down with Pollock to talk in-depth about the Dino, his in-depth record-keeping of the car’s history, and more."


#FORZAFRIDAY LIVESTREAM
  • "If you’re familiar with our Bounty Hunter events, or have watched “Forza Monthly” in the past, you’ll likely recognize today’s #ForzaFriday guest, Jennifer Lane. On today’s show we’ll be talking about Jenn’s career and focusing on the work she does as Engagement Design Director for Turn 10. We’ll also be running some laps in the Brickyard Bounty Hunter and playing Forza Motorsport 7 with viewers. Tune in when the show goes live at 3 p.m. Pacific on the official Forza Mixer and Twitch channels."

Quote:
After a week-long hiatus the Week in Review is back! I spent last week in Burbank, CA for our Forza Racing Championship test event. It was great to get back into the swing of things with the ForzaRC, even if for only a few days. The team learned a lot during that time and we look forward to sharing more with Forza fans in the future.

It’s good to be back, so let’s dive in!


JUNE CONTENT UPDATE & FORZA RACE REGULATIONS
  • "Next week Turn 10 will be releasing the June update for Forza Motorsport 7. The June update is focused almost entirely on Forza Race Regulations (FRR) development, as the team continues to test FRR features and rulesets. Look for a full rundown of the update next week ahead of the update’s release on Tuesday."
  • "This week the team made some behind-the-scenes ruleset changes to FRR. These changes address issues around players accruing penalties at corner exit and when going off the track on long straights. In addition, we removed the penalty incurred for overtaking cars while off track. As this is a global FRR change, this affects both the FRR public beta lobby as well as FRR-enabled private hoppers."
  • "If you’d like to share your thoughts on these rule changes, or if you have feedback on FRR in general, please let us know in our dedicated thread on the Forza Forums. While descriptions of your experiences with FRR are always welcome, examples with video links are even better!"


INDYCAR BOUNTY HUNTER RIVALS
  • "Last weekend, Simon Pagenaud won the 103rd running of the Indianapolis 500 with a thrilling finish that saw him take his first 500, just beating out Alexander Rossi and Takuma Sato. Congratulations to SP on the win; with the big race out of the way, we can once again turn our attention to the overall leaderboard of the Forza 7 Brickyard Bounty Hunter event, where Pagenaud and several other IndyCar personalities are battling it for virtual supremacy at Indy. "
  • "Remember, this Bounty Hunter ends on June 5 and will be our final Bounty Hunter event in Forza Motorsport 7. There’s still time to get your best lap on the leaderboard to try and qualify for some in-game cars and credits. Good luck!"


EVENTS
  • Hoppers - current list and upcoming June 7 list
  • Leagues - Series 2 list, Series 3 starts June 1
  • Specialty Dealer - this week and next week's sets listed


#FORZAFRIDAY LIVESTREAM
  • "No guest today on #ForzaFriday; instead we’ll be hanging out and mixing it up between Forza Horizon 4 (hour 1) and Forza Motorsport 7 (hour 2). The show begins at 3 p.m. Pacific on the Forza Mixer and Twitch channel, so don’t miss it."
