Appreciate the improvements. We need better grouping for ranked adventure. Why do some of us (me) get stuck with 4 or 5 non-ranked people while the entire other side is ranked? Then when I lose, I lose 50 points

Loving the attention to photo mode! Thank you, this will be an excellent change. As someone who loves doing photography in Forza, being able to remove the driver is HUGE. Also, the fix to being able to turn headlights on or off is great as that was a major annoyance. I’m interested to try the bokeh effect and wildlife/crowd characters. Now you just need to allow us to pose next to our cars or do our emotes and it would be complete :)

See, I can be pleased ;) lol

Nice fixes this time, small but significant. View Map in Route Creator and Skill Mastery fix are appreciated. :)

    In regard to having the 53+ pages topic about the multiplayer's weaknesses, this is again VERY DISAPPOINTING :-(

    Rather disappointing that the weekly bonus points for completing the 7 daily and 1 weekly forzathons is still not fixed. This has been broken since release.

    I used to receive the weekly bonus FP for completing the 1+7 challenges per week was but when they looked into the problem of not getting double FP even if owning the Lake Lodge then the bonus went away completely. Now I get the double FP for everything but the 1+7 weekly challenges.

    No mention of car sounds being improved/fixed. But hey, we can get emotes in the Forzathon Shop now. ;-)

    I'm so glad for the photomode changes. They will make my shots looks so much better (the driver sometimes goes a bit polygonal when I zoom out) I would also like to see the fix of shutter speed glitching out when the camera was at 2 metre height. And also a higher limit for the camera so we can take good looking birds eye shots.

    not sure why emotes needed to be added to the forza points shop. they are probably the smallest in number of the cosmetics and really didnt need a boost. Just means im going to have OWNED showing up a whole lot more now when i look in the shop now.

    No mention of a fix for the swapping cars removing player ghosting in forza live events issue that i posted about recently?

    https://xboxdvr.com/game...sdriverz/video/64698896 Seems a bit more game breaking than the 1 in a billion person who gets more money than junk wheelspins...

    And we have to yet another month watch those focus all the time when doing races on solo. Some good fixes there but still look bit dissapointing.

    Removing time limit is good but i think it's still not make horizon life multiplayer any better if it still send that notification on 12 players only.

    another unimportant update.

    how much we have to wait for changes in multiplayer mode?

    Half a year, you would give the selection menu, type of race / class of car / collision mode or without collision, team or individual

    Is it too heavy for you?

    Do you just want us to have no choice but to ride like cattle in the races in which you impose us?

    It's a waste of words, we have to run away from this game

    Nothing about ranked adventures ?????????

    we doesn't want to play TEAM RANKED ADVENTURES with totaly unfair random composite team.

    go back like it was in FH3 were we can choose the class car, championship and an option to choose the season.

    Ah, well... if I log out in a DLC car when I come back I'm in the starter car I chose. This has been an issue for several Motorsport/Horizon games.

    I appreciate the technical improvements. For the less appreciated stuff I can still give away likes.

    Photo mode changes are appreciated (even though i don't use it so much). But still no major multiplayer improvements, no sound improvements but i guess having emotes in forzathon shop(and in wheelspins) is more important from making the multiplayer playable. YAY.....

    There is no description about the roof of the 650S Spider in this patch note.
    Was it postponed?
