Skill songs and the skill song perk
Does it work at all or is it bugged for me? I've had one skill song playing in my entire "playthrough" which was very early in the game. I listen to the radio fairly often and I would have thought that by 120 hours +\- i should have heard a skill song atleast a few more times than only one.
Most of the time i listen to the Hospital(?) radio. I've tried listening to both the classical and future classical one but no luck so far. And about the skill, shouldnt a skill song play right after it's activated or am I missing something here?

It occurs frequently in playground games, and sometimes in online races.
In playground games, you enter ghosted state after a change in your situation. For example, after you become King, or after you steal a flag in Flag Rush. To others, you appear semi-transparent, and you cannot be hit.

In online races, if you temporarily lose connection to the server, you are shown ghosted to the others, and again you cannot be hit. They simply pass through you. You may also enter the state after a massive crash.

In all situations, the ghosted state lasts for a few seconds.

Try to stick to one station, while driving around in solo mode. Do not switch stations, do not enter festivals, as these might reset the radio playlist.
If you stay in roaming mode, the skill song will come up every now and then.

If you buy the skill song perk and go outside, the next song will be a skill song.

Seems to me that when you buy a skill song you want to be on the classical radio because they have the longest songs. I just got a 22 min skill song.

Hello there :) !

Does anybody know if some of the higher perks with an indicator like XP Bump, Double Down, Mechanic etc... are limited in use ?
Like if you buy it 10 times, it's suddently greyed out.

Thank you !

Th XP bump for example is only for 3 races, after you have to buy the perk again.

Thanks but that's not what i meant ^^
I'm asking if you can buy these skills for an infinite number of times or if there is a maximum where it's not available anymore :)

At least they made it so there are reusable perks in this game.

5% discount on cars
Free upgrades
Start at the front of the back
Bonus XP
4x rival bonus.


I say that's step - might help if you drove straight every once in awhile too ;)

The one the gives you doubles credits for exhibition races is useful, too ... best used when doing long races.

The bonus XP is not reusable. For me, it could only be used once

5% discount on cars
Free upgrades
Start at the front of the pack
4x rival bonus.

Plus

Triple XP from skill points in championship races (I think this is what PervasiveFall8 meant)
30% extra cash from championships

And as O Bleak Genius said, the Goliath biggie:

Double Down -- twice the cash from exhibition races.

[Mod Edit - thread merged - MM]

How does "Hot Lap Hero" perk work? l just tried it and got 6k credits perk bonus from a Rivals event where l ended up on position #43. On the new Celebrate 15 years of Forza event.

10 skillpoints for 6k~ credits is absolute rubbish. Does it just quadruple the credit reward which ranges from 500-4000 credits you see on the Rivals page as reward for beating someone? That's really tiny.

So yeah, one of the races in blizzard mountain requires 2 show off skills.

I don't have the slightest idea what that is or how to do it.

And the search feature giving me nothing.

Thanks!

I'll update this thread closer to release when the usage of the points is known and the skills list is confirmed. Below is the list from FH2:

With the latest list of forzathon challenges over at true achievements, I've noticed a stuntman skill requirement. That's not listed at the top. Can't remember how to get these?
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
