Also, is anyone else experiencing the game grinding to a halt after taking some photos? It's taking 5-10 mins to do anything now. I've restarted the PC and game, but after 2 photos it's back to taking 5-10 mins stuck on each loading screen.

Yes, that would work fine.

My contribution: If you you choose The Juggernaut (or other drag race), you can have until 12 new cars every pic. For each new race, just choose a car from a category you haven't taken pictures yet.

There are 33 car categories in the game. So, to get the Porsche 911 (200 pics), it will be necessary only 17 Drag races starts, each one with a different car category. I guess one hour is enough to complete these task.

Not on XB1, but when trying to view share codes for newly created blueprints, I get "There was an error retrieving the share code, please try again later" error message.

Had it many many times today but finally figured out why.

Right, finally got the 200 car photos to unlock the 2 new cars. Most of the time was spent trying to stay awake during the 10 minute loading screens and the time it takes to process the photos. I could have spent that time actually using the two new cars, but now I've had the will to live sucked out of me and can't be bothered, so have shut the game down. I'll go and do something more useful to make up for the total waste of time that was.

Just start a drag race with different car categories... press P immediately after start, take phone (6-7 cars at least per shot). Quit race, rinse and repeat.

I understand people like this feature but ... why ?!
You could take pictures before if you like it. For those that don't care about that is just a tedious task of waiting for the game to load, quit photo mode, load again.
This sucks, never understood this feature even in FH3.
The rewards are ridiculous (I don't even sell cars less than 1 mil in AU and just delete them and here I get ~ 750.000 CR ? **** :))

PS: I'm gonna start driving around in a Capri FE and have half of the server chasing me for a picture.

PS2: 99% of the users will stop at 200 pictures.

PS3: This could've been great if done more smartly... photograph that car in a specific place or setup... kinda like the treasure hunt. The way it's done... it's completely boring and useless.

Well, if anyone is interested, I've compiled all categories into Share Codes:

You can get up to 12 cars in one go (maybe need a second shot if the grid is well spread out).

Some categories have more than 12 cars, so a few goes will be required.

The most I got in one go was 11 (had to get the 12th with a second photo)

But this will be a lot quicker and you'll just need to mop up the stragglers that have been missed by taking photos whilst still in the garage using "Forzavista" and selecting "Photo Mode". (if you have them).

I enjoyed this in previous games. But seeing as the game has been out soooo long, it's kinda a bit late. It will be a chore for those who have all the cars already and don't really intend on driving them all again.

Is it me or have they made going into the photo mode more snappier?

To speed up the photo processing time you have to change sampling mode to fast (under photo effects mode).

One issue occurred to me: switching into Horizon Solo mode to get more traffic to the roads means drivatars only use few different cars (depending of your car type). Even, when you change a car, majority of drivatars are in Focus RS and Audi TT. I thought that it would be cool to just cruise around for a change (to the annoying Festival Playlist) and hunt down cars, but noooo. In previous games you got larger amount of different drivatar cars similar to your car type.

Example:

TOP TIP!

Not sure what mine was set to (probably "Quality"), but reset the photo settings to default (which probably reset it to "Fast") and went from 30ish seconds per capture to 12ish. :)

You have to take pictures, not drive the cars. You can just park the car in solo mode and wait for drivatars to pass by. You can be a rookie or a seasoned player there's no difference. Both have to take 685 pic to complete the set. It is a chore but the 2 cars are well worth it.
I don't get the complains... Doing this or that is a waste of time.. I always thought that playing games is perse a waste of time.

Time spent doing something you love is not a waste of time.

Time spent doing busywork on the other hand...

So the activity in and of itself is a waste of time and few would do it were it not for the rewards. A bit like going to work for most people. At least you do have IRL bills to pay so you have little choice but to raise money one way or another. You don't really need another couple of cars which will drive like ones you already have.

But, you are aware that you can waste your time even when doing something you like? That one doesn't exclude the other?
Most if not every chore leads to some rewards. Irl or in virtual word. Most people will also feel they are waisting their time doing chores. We are not reinventing the wheel here.

By definition, if you enjoy your time then it is not wasted.

So we're agreed it's an unenjoyable chore, but the rewards are enjoyable. A bit like going to work in a job you dislike (ie. most people) for the reward of being able to keep a roof over your head. That makes sense, but for me it makes no sense to get another car I don't care about and is only arbitrarily 'rare' because it's locked behind this chore.

It is hard for me to get my head round the devs doing these pointless updates when they fail to fix the MAJOR flaws with the game people have been complaining about for months.

Well, it's worth a few seconds of time to give feedback, someone might read it and take note.

42 mins of completely wasting my time to unlock 2 cars. It's just so pointless. I could mow my lawn, for example, in that time, if the game just gave me the cars, I'd rather spend the 42 mins doing that. It's much worse than having to do races against AI in that at least doing races against AI has a bit of benefit in giving you more practice driving and learning tracks better.

Exactly that!
