Exactly. There should be a bonus but the descrepancy is disgusting.

Essentially, the people ruining the entire scheme are the ones that copy-paste the same layer groups to every car in the game. Tuning is much different, and I don't know how I'd workaround status jumps like people do with one design for every car (because tuning is a whole different ballgame).

Plus, yes the jump from elite to legend is 40,000 but come on, max buyout from around 600k straight to 20m...

That's because the logic behind it is ridiculous.

More accurately the logic behind giving such an extreme bonus is ridiculous. I can copy paste vinyls like a champ if I wanted to but that shouldn't get you a 20x Max buyout over a non legend painter.

It's the same with the tuners, but people always blame the painters. Ok, there might be more of them, but when you buy a car, you see what you get. If you buy a car of a tuner, you don't. Bad joke, when it's only a build with some tire pressure adjustments...
And yes, the discrepancy of max buyout is ridiculous. The devs should change that.

allot of people don't think that is fair so you don't need to bring that up. it is what it is and if you wish different, then write it down in the wish list thread :-)


I often wondered this. Now I know. Cheers.

For the record it's not fair is it really. You could put a great tune or paint up and it still isn't guaranteed to get downloaded. So then how do you achieve a better status. You could also put mediocre things up and manipulate it so that it gets lots of downloads and boosts your status.

Personally I think it should be down to how long you've spent on the auction house and how many auctions you've won or sold that gives you the ability to sell things for a higher price. The auction house is a separate entity afterall...

Money comes easy enough in this game, I don't really care that some people who happen to be better at tuning and painting (and ALSO KNOW HOW TO MARKET THEMSELVES) better, are making more money in the Auction House than I am.

I am at Elite status for Paint, Amateur for Tune.

Do you know how hard it is to design even a logo, let alone an entire themed car, for it to look great and line up? How about getting a tune dialed in to the nuts?

I like the extra reward. Paints take a lot of time. As does tuning.

Don't get mad. Get better.

If the cars that had these ridiculous buyouts actually had a legendary paint on it, I'd agree with you. But it's a low effort matte black paint a lot of the time. Not to mention a large amount of the people who do this got their legendary status by putting up many low effort paints because they know the "storefront" favours the newest paints.

PAINT CAR ZINC.

ADD BLACK VINYL.

Cat's out the bag.

I agree with the lazy sentiments. I have been guilty of it though. I can't stand keeping HE cars, so admittedly, I've slapped the color absorbing black on it with a cartoon logo. It sells. It's dumb but it works.

The storefront favoring newer paints and such...they need to make it filterable like when we online shop. By Date, Popularity, Rating, etc.

They've needed to since Forza Motorsport 5 but we're stuck with the current system for now.

It won't change in this game (nor will the whole Legendary Auction Price thing) so all we can do is put up with it, and direct any frustrations or suggestions to forzafb@microsoft.com

Forza Motorsport 5 came out back in 2013... yet everyone wonders why we have not seen any changes to these things in almost four years.

I know the previous post was over a year ago but after having the same experience in Forza Horizon 4 and this thread is the top google search I just wanted to add something. The elusive car right now is the Ford Crown Victoria patrol car. I got some credits I wanted to spend so sure enough, there's one at auction to buy for 20million. I bought it, had fun with it and thought I'd sell it again. The highest value I can sell at is 154,000. I knew it would be a lot less but I'm not giving it away. Now I need to get to 50,000 downloads on my paint jobs before I can get my money back on it. I'm at about 8000 at the moment so it's possible but this system is unfair. I've done over 200 unique paint jobs but I would like my dedication to be rewarded in some way other than to rely on people actually choosing my work for their car.
Also, the car I bought was a quick paint job, just a plain colour, no design to it so perhaps it should only be worth 20,000,000 when it's obvious some time has gone into it, like recognising the number of layers used. If/when I get to the level I can charge that amount I will at least give someone value for money and not a cheap cash grab. Besides, doesn't it stand to reason if your level of painter is high enough you've got credits coming in every day from your work without having to charge this exclusive maximum? Those people must own every car in the game and just be accumulating credit now but for what? Ok, my comment turned into a bit of a rant there but hopefully you get my point. In future Forza's, let's ditch this 20mil auction price and reward painters some other way. Oh and if anyone wants to visit my store and get a couple of my marvellous paint jobs, please feel free. It would be greatly appreciated. Cheers!
