Hi all,

So I have more or less completed FH4. I have 40mil, almost every car, done almost event. I love the game, but for me at least there wasn’t much progression - because I streamed Mixer for weeks before the game launched and started out at nearly level 100. I boosted every event within a week.

I regret doing this to some extent and am considering deleting my save data and starting the game over, properly this time.

Has anybody here done this, and will I keep the ultimate edition / preorder vehicles? I assume if I don’t delete these files (Xbox) they will be carried over to a new save. Also does anybody also know what happens to storefront items? I have some liveries that bring in a few thousand per day, and wondered if these would be transferred or if they would vanish. I assume auction items would vanish.

Thank you in advance.
Feel free to add me on Xbox Live. Gamertag: The Novacat

You will lose everything except UE content and the PO car, that will be gifted to you again, when you start from the beginning.
All your liveries and vinyls will be gone.
I would start again with another account.

Yep
Just create a new gamertag and start again
You can gameshare using the account you bought it with and have all the DLC there to use..ie carpass cars and expansions

I already gameshare with a family member so this isn't an option unfortunately. I am considering a new Gamertag but I would be stuck with a Silver account unless I pay for a second one.

Not if your xbox is set as your Home box

If you have the original gt signed in on that console you should still be able to use the dlc..as long as its still signed in
I usually have 3 or 4 gt's signed in at once

Hey all,
Anyone know where the info would be to completely reset the game to the beginning? Ive followed a couple of suggestions already (deleting data saves) but the game keeps syncing the old data again from the cloud server. Just looking for something to do while im on lock-down. Thanks in advance!!

Can you not delete your local save and then start a new game while offline? Then save that locally, go back online and the local save, being newer should take precedence over the cloud one? I haven't tried it but I assumed that's how it works.

If you're on xbox then you only have to erase your savegame from everywhere instead of just local, if you're on pc, start a game offline play a bit then go online and when u're asked which game you want to keep (latest offline or oldest online) choose the offline one and it will overwrite everything ;)

It works.

And actually the player can explicitly decide which save to take precedence upon a save conflict.
