I was just looking at ForzaCentral, until I saw this:



Looks like it may be a new unicorn. Let's hope it won't be like the '66 Silvia and '08 California situation.

Listed as a 1973 model in the game, so similar but not the same as the 1970 Fast & Furious Edition.

Hmm what happened to that 08 California? Haven't been around these boards that much lately. *cough* Dirt *cough* rally *cough* :)

YES.

The Fast'n'Furious version was already too nice to be true, but having an untouched Mk. I RS1600 Escort... Damn!

They are losing me even more with these cars.

Thsi is not the usual unicorn argument but what did happen with the 08 Cali and what about this one.

At least come out and say "Each month a new unicorn is added, watch the news for ways to win them."

As far as I know the 08 Cali has not been released yet, I have been keeping an eye on this thread (I know you are in it). http://forums.forzamotor...-Ferrari-California.aspx

It would be nice if T10 either did a better job of hiding the hidden stuff in the game or were more open with the hidden stuff in the game. This model of hiding stuff in updates then pretending not to notice when people find it is very weird. I was lucky enough to stumble across the thread on the Silvia and get one but I am still convinced that the car was not supposed to be obtainable, it was a very obscure round about way of getting it.

Interesting....maybe they'll provide a way to win a couple of different cars in their next contest??? Who knows.

Another new-to-the-series unicorn car. I still wish some of these were the free cars of the packs. At the same time, they do generate more interest in the game for some people.
I buy, upgrade and tune cars to the max. That's what I live for in Forza. I'm always in the need for more cars. Check out my custom routes in Horizon 4! https://forums.forzamoto...routes.aspx#post_1133141

I fully agree with this. I mean about every other game developer announces to their player base what their intentions are with the game. From Turn 10 we get the middle finger. Why on earth don't they announce DLC packs a week earlier and release the video already? That way we have a whole week to look forward to it. Why don't we get CU updates anymore? Well either they basically don't fix anything about the game anymore and focus fully on future titles (which in itself is lame, there is tons of stuff left to fix, just look at the bug report thread), or else they just CBA to inform us what is changed. This Dan Greenwallet's vision of "my way or the highway" certainly sucks big time and it surely drives people away...

Some examples of how they should communicate with us :

Codemasters giving WEEKLY updates about Dirt Rally and what's in store for the future : https://www.dirtgame.com/uk/blog/5561
Slightly Mad Studios devs been very active on their own forum and being very open about their perception of certain things : http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/search.php?searchid=10214946

And it's not just racing games, I play HearthStone as well, same there with Blizzard Entertainment, they are very open with communication and you know well aforehand what direction the game is heading. The Old Gods expansion and included game changes have been announced months earlier in-game, on blogs, on the forum, etc etc.

Common Turn 10 so called "community managers", stop playing your own game on Twitch twice a week, kick yourselves in the butt and start managing this community instead...

Please, T10, stop with the unicorns? I thought T10 decided to stop this nonsense since FM5? So sad I missed out on the Huracan Super Trofeo and 70s Aston Martin, especially as I'm a VIP (not saying i'm entitled to these cars, but it would've been nice to be able to buy them, like say as an sub-group of VIP ONLY cars in the Buy Cars menu)...

At least I have the Ferrari Can-Am car and the Chryslus.

The unicorn car is the closest year/make/model to a car being raced in a real life racing series.

That's when unicorn cars are not just bad, but infuriating.

Yeah, and there was weeks worth of time to get it. Participate in the series and you got it. Even racing clean laps got you on. Just because some people are lazy and entitled doesn't mean the unicorns are bad.

I don't mind the Unicorns per se, but I agree with the poster asking for a little more communication from the devs. It's so strange that we're all discovering these cars, and getting no response from the devs as we ask questions about them. It's a strange business practice.

I think the idea of unicorn cars is great. In FM4 I had the NSX-GT, RX-7 Spirit, Impreza S402 and maybe one or two more. There was a lot of opportunities to grab one and these contests were announced wide and clear far in advance. What is really bad right now is that they're locked away from everyone because as of today FM6 has had only two racing events in which unicorns were given as prizes. And these events were all over before I knew about them. I would have appreciated a little message in my inbox about the Aston Martin you know? So yeah, I'm quite salty about that. That's great communication, T10.

There was actually an ingame message about it..rivals
Was also in week in review as well

There's actually been 3 events for 3 different unicorns ..all lasted a month or longer and there was plenty of notice and a hell of a lot of discussion on the forum about them too

About which car?

And which week?

Maybe I have missed a week but I have seen nothing about the Cali or RS1600.

Now that is actually an excellent idea I haven't heard before yet. And it would give some added value to being a VIP member because right now the only benefit is to have some extra cash in a game where cash is in abundance already. People who have a busy life and don't play the game daily/weekly or started playing later can easily grab VIP membership and buy the missed unicorns that way.

This is what is already added to the game but not possible to buy right now :

1970 Dom's charger
Classic Nissan Silvia
Ferrari 312 PB
1977 Aston V8
2015 Huracan ST
2008 Ferrari Cali
classic Ford RS1600

It's exactly 7 cars, perfect for a DLC pack. If they add this to the store I'd buy it instantly and then also the last 2 DLC packs because right now the collector in me lost interest to collect cars. And there isn't even one car in the Top Gear or Hot Wheels pack that I'd rather have than the Aston V8.

Until Turn 10 sorts out this mess, I'm happily playing Dirt Rally.
