I've done the intro where the cars are delivered and you choose your character from such a diverse palette, but haven't done a single thing beyond that :rofl:

I recognize that this isn’t a sim, but the immersion factor with a wheel, clutch and H shifter blasting up the twisty mountain road in cockpit view is pretty damn entertaining. And I think it has more to do with the environment, road and sight lines than any real life physics, though the wheel is better executed here than in previous Horizons.
Ive never used my wheel for a horizon game, but i feel like id like to try with this one, given the positive feedback ive seen vs previous horizon titles. I wouldnt wanna use it to play the main game, but I think If I really wanted to dive into the rivals events, it could be quite useful. and fun.

What wheel do you have? Now that I have my Xbox at a desk I’ve considered one. Between this, forza Motorsport, and the f1 games I feel like I’d get some good use out of it.

Its just a logitech G920. I'd say its probably the bare minimum you want out of a wheel. it does very well for the price, but still dont compare to higher end wheels

Wheel isn’t the fast choice, for certain, and I wouldn’t buy one for this game, but I have it and think it changes the way I play. I also was a little bored out of the gate - the thought of doing three short course races, barely any different, was meh. But I really like the Mexico setting and variety of roads.

Got the GT500 tonight. You can get it by posting a lap time in the top 5% in any rivals event in a D class car.

Promptly transferred my Shmee spec paint job over that I created in horizon 4 and loaded it onto the car.

So I finally started playing a bit more, but the "online" is grayed out, so can't do a search for TCG. Am I missing something?

Like the whole online tab is inaccessible? I dont think you've played the game enough yet. You need to progress a little bit further in the game before it "unlocks"

Yeah you have to reach a certain point before you can unlock the groups. I just did the other night.

Yeah, reached that at some point. Around 3am it finally let me do the search, and I was humbled to be accepted.

I have a lot to learn about the game. A LOT. For example did some challenge where for 10 minutes you have to stay above 75mph within a town's limits. Did my best and even though I had found a few areas that I could exceed 120mph I still failed. Not sure what I was supposed to get done.

I dont know if i just got lucky or what, but I was just able to play a horizon arcade event w/ other players! Maybe its not broken anymore. But even still, they need to tweak these events. Even with like at least 6 or 7 other cars playing, we still couldnt complete all 3 rounds within the time limit. Some of these damn events are so far away from each other you spend half of your time limit just driving to these places before you can even start trying to get points. Its stupid. And it also means I still cant complete the challenge for the festival playlist.

aaaaaaaaaaand speaking of the festival playlist, I did the first 3 fucking chapters of the baja bug challenge LAST NIGHT, and now none of my progress is there anymore.........


MOTHERFUCK

You'd think w/ all the time they had to tweak and perfect 4, none of this shit would be happening . oh that pisses me off

I'll leave it for now...... mayyyyybe its just a server communication issue, and my progress will return later...........it fucking better.

Flatbed!



CTS V







Apparently there are hurricanes in this game :LOL: Came out of an event to find this going on outta nowhere



Did the Goliath in an A class Subaru S209. Wasn't too bad. Took me like 15 minutes



Also did the Colossus in an A class R32 GTR. Took me like 17 minutes, but man. They did something w/ the AI in this game from 4 to 5. Im only playing on highly skilled like I did in 4, which was pretty much a cakewalk in 4, but on those 2 long events, I could NOT shake the pack. And they seem to have so much more straightline speed and brake so much later than they did in 5. I could build up a lead in twisty sections, but as soon as I hit any kinda long straights...........there they were RIGHT behind me.

Yeah, the ai is kinda wonky. I’m on highly skilled to. The acceleration on the ai cars is stupid fast sometimes. Best places to gain on them is the long sweeping corners when the ai taps the brakes. And it seems like they are super fast until you pass them. Then they back down.

I can be in AWD car that does 0-60 in 2.8 seconds, and I still get blitzed by RWD cars behind me at the start of races. In 4 I would've been in 1st place by the first turn :LOL:

**NOT MY DESIGN CREATION** :LOL: But I mean, it fits the environment so perfectly. I didn't even have to search for it. Literally popped up as one of the first few designs when you buy the truck.





This thing is a fucking pig tho. Even w/ the supercharger and exhaust I threw on to give it 500+ HP it still cant get out of its own way.


Also, I have gotten every fast travel board now. FREE fast travel anywhere from here on out!! Well.......after you buy the $2mil house that lets you fast travel anywhere on the map. But then. THEN. AFTER you've bought the house, and AFTER you've smashed ALL 50 boards scattered around the map, then its free forever!!
