Oh great, one of my favorite threads has been taken over by the same old tired argument yet again.

Back on topic though; the new engine poster is interesting. The old pic in the wall never meant anything iirc, but I’m hoping this time it does. That w12 has been used in some pretty neat land speed record cars (im hoping this means we’re getting the Railton Special, but that’s probably a long shot).

I’m also wondering if maybe will get some historic and/or unique mail carrying vehicle... but I’m struggling to think of any that’d be much fun in a racing game except the old postal jeeps maybe? DJ-5E variant could be a lot of fun.

Pat 1 = 1980 Lambretta William Voiturette?

...or perhaps Pat 1 = Leyland (Morris) Sherpa?

Sherpa is a dog carrier/accessories vendor, and someone mentioned possible Bond tie-in earlier... the Leyland Sherpa 204 van was seen in 'The Spy Who Loved Me,' ...and during the 80's was sold under the Freight Rover brand..., so several 'doggy' connections ?

🚙🚐.. .

The 2000GT was featured in "You only live Twice", the only bond tie-in that i could think of that would relate to Series 20
Edit: And because DaReoCharmer mentioned Daniel Craig, his favourite Bond Car was the 2000GT according to Toyota GB

Can't stand him as Bond, but he is an OK actor. Never managed to get through his Bond films even though I own a couple on Blue Ray. Mainly though Dame Judi Dench screaming down his ear like a nagging wife ruined a few.

I actually was hoping for a Black Female 007 next, but it isn't going to happen now.

Squryl. PAT 1 makes the most sense as an LDV Sherpa to Me as well , given that the Van in the Original 1981 Stop Motion Postman Pat (which had the Licence Plate PAT 1) was modelled on a Sherpa. So a 1981 LDV Sherpa Series 400 (V8) makes the most sense to Me for that Clue. Possibly as a Prize for "Express Delivery" ?

Perhaps a Bedford Beagle is in the mix?

Note that it's currently in the 6am hour in London (UTC), and Playground Games tweeted that Monday's livestream will take place at 6pm. This would mean that the Pacific time zone would be 11am (due to this past weekend's summer time change). The livestream schedule for the week posted by @Forzamotorsport then incorrectly shows 10am Pacific.

Quote:
Version Number:
PC: 1.401.914.0
Xbox: 1.401.912.2

NEW FEATURES

NEW BUSINESS - EXPRESS DELIVERY
Welcome to Express Delivery, the Horizon Festival's brand-new ultra-fast delivery service! Gutsy entrepreneur and man-about-town Billy Stoakes has all he needs to get his Edinburgh-business off the ground. Everything, that is, except a Horizon driver to handle the more... sensitive tasks. This new, 9-chapter Horizon Business will allow you to unlock the very professional-looking Delivery Outfit.

ACCESSIBILITY MENU
Introducing the Accessibility Menu, accessible via the Title Screen or the Settings tile of the Pause Menu. Colorblind and High Contrast modes will reside here, alongside all subtitle-related settings. We've also added the following Accessibility features:

Subtitle Keyword Highlighting - We’ve added an option for bolding keywords in all subtitles! This option is intended to assist anyone who has trouble reading our subtitles quickly.

Map Filter Icons - The Map Filter list is now adorned with icons to help guide players to the Event Types they’re looking for. They are also quite pretty.

NEW ACHIEVEMENTS
This update includes 8 new Achievements related to the Express Delivery Story, Upgrade Heroes Story, and the recently-added LEGO Speed Champions Bugatti Chiron.

SHOWCASE REMIX - RIDE TO ANYWHERE
This newest Remix pits Isha’s very own Austin Taxi against the Behemoth! It’s transportation giant versus inflatable giant, through the snowy hills of Glen Rannoch.

SHOWCASE REMIX - SUPERFAST vs. SUPERSONIC
The returning Showcase Remix ‘Supersonic vs Superfast’ features the Horizon Delta-Wing and the Ferrari 812 Superfast. Complete the original Delta-Wing Showcase in order to unlock this Remix.

CROSS-PLATFORM FIXES
  • Improved the search functionality for UGC Blueprints. Players can now search by Lap Count.
  • Improved the appearance of text in High Contrast Mode, by removing drop shadow on completed elements
  • Changed the distance to destination in The Eliminator to be as the crow flies, rather than following the road network
  • Reduced the chance of a Head-to-Head in The Eliminator ending up outside of the Arena wall
  • Fixed an issue where players using Manual with Clutch controller settings were stalling at race start
  • Added Police front bumper to '96 Chevy Impala SS.
  • Improved wiper animation for Lexus LFA


PC FIXES
No PC-specific fixes.

XBOX FIXES
No Xbox-specific fixes.





Q&A:
PG's fav cars: BMW M3 E46, Ford Escort Cosworth
New bodykits: "No firm timeline on that yet" ask again
X-Class Rivals? "I think we probably can"
Integrating cars into different championships: cars are put into buckets for competitive/comparative reasons "very tricky to do that"
FFA Games Adventure: "No plans for that right now but we can make that happen"
Previous characters as selectable characters: probably not due to licensing
Why the Napier? The game is set in the U.K. "it's also incumbent on us to find cool lesser known cars" There was a time where this car was almost the first one you drive in the game.
Express Delivery prizes? New outfit, GMC Vandura, Ford Transit, Morris Traveller
Eliminator as part of the Festival Playlist? "People don't generally love when we put multiplayer requirements in there" but if a lot of people requested it, "it's a switch we could pull"
Where's Tommy? "Tommy Bargains will return"

New body kit delay: Well ... as expected. I hope it will be released this year.

Add the Eliminator to the Festival Playlist: Never do it.

Tommy Bargains will return: Sounds good. I hope we can get more attractive cars at the next bargain.

Indeed, I did not want Battle Royale with Cheese in the Game, Period, I do not Buy Battle Royale Games, because I think the Genre should be *Outlawed* in the UK due to its "Hyper Addictive" Nature! so I am still FUMING at its Inclusion in the Game anyway! so it had *better* not come into the Playlist, Not EVER! because it is hard enough to get 50% Completion as it is!

IIRC, Licencing issues with a Certain Italian Brand have put the Boot through the Bodykit update for the Foreseeable Future.

As for the Impossibly Dodgy Tommy Bargains coming back, Hopefully He will be able to Blag the Keys to a Cougar Eliminator and a Capri FE "off the Back of a Safe" at Playground HQ at some Point before His Return for those of us who don't do Multiplayer! as finding those Cars on the Auction House is Impossible!
