    Sorry if it has been mentioned already but I really hope they get rid of the fake barriers that blight the tracks. They have been put in presumably to stop people cutting corners but they completely ruin the authenticity of the real world tracks. Its a bit like trying to stop collisions by giving all the cars fenders off a dodgem car!

    I can't recall, but weren't you able to hold the right or left trigger, and it fast forwards or rewinds the feed? I could have sworn I did that a lot when trying to capture a good photo in certain area's. The whole save issue makes no sense to me, such an odd decision on their part.

    The way Xbox records is not a Forza issue.

    I prefer to start from a standing lap. Gets me warmed up for the track, and helps me realize were I should be improving. I agree that they definitely need to include more information in the replays, but it looks like they're already working towards that.

    I dunno, I think the simpler the better. I'm not finding it absolutely necessary for them to recreate the car and its aids entirely. Seems to be something wanted by the minority though, so its not like its outlandish.

    This is my main concern. As much as I enjoy elements of Forza 6, the lack of feel stops me from spending more time with it. Hope they can nail it down for Forza 7.

    I'm agreeing with everyone else, turn10 needs to offer more then just a graphical showcase for Forza 7. That's what Forza 5 and to some degree forza 6 was. We need a fleshed out career mode with a variety of events, I've said this before and I'm gonna say it again they need to focus more on the motorsport aspect of the game too. Meaning less big trucks and oddball cars unless of course it's those formula Mack type trucks and some offroaders, more group 4,5,6 and groups A-C cars, more disciplines of racing like FIA rallycross, drag events need to make a return, sprint racing, formula trucks etc, they need to rework tuning and customizing as it's been the same for nearly a decade. And give us more freedom in free race mode. Plus dynamic time/day/weather implementation.

    I firmly disagree, you want nothing but race cars then get PCARS2.

    With GTS new focus, Forza is now the only car collecting game on the market. I love those silly cars.

    If all you want Forza to be is just like every other racing sim, then what's the point?

    Forza obviously can improve its career mode and will continue to improve it's physics as it did from FM5 to FM6.

    Dynamic weather and time of day will likely not be in FM7 as there's no way that they will be able to maintain 1080p/60fps on the standard Xbone edition without lowering either the graphics or grid count substantially, neither which seems likely.

    With Xbox Play Anywhere it's likely that as with FH3 it will share it's online with Xbone/Win10/Scorpio, which means having different grid sizes amongst editions will be unlikely.

    FM7 will be the same as every other Forza sequel in which it will be the same core game but with improved graphics, physics, core gameplay features (bigger grids for example) and more cars/tracks.

    If they surprise us with something different, nice. But I'm not expecting them to change the formula and if you are, you're likely just setting yourself up for disappointment.

    By no means do I want them to drastically change the gameplay element they're known for as been said it is a car collectors game. All I mainly want them to do is focus a little more on motorsport, add a few extra features or change a few things that's been same ol as we are approaching the 7th iteration. They can still be Forza without copying other games like PCars they just need to improve a few things going forward.

    I really have a feeling Forza7 is going to be one of the best in the series and cannot wait to get information on this game!

    Absurd expectation : a new engine. All these gorgeous details on cars seem flat because of the lighting engine.

    Realist expectations : more grip, a true gear change animation, a less action movie soundtrack.

    I'd love to see something like Groove Music implementation on Forza 7, like in Horizon 3, so we can set up our own custom race BGM's for racing.

    You can do it in FM6, if you upload your music into OneDrive and play it from Groove (no subscription required).

    Being able to change the interior FOV would be nice, otherwise there isn't really much point in getting it

    I swear.. THIS! And proper wheel rotation and gear shift animation for each car as it is IRL. They are really lagging behind in that department.. PCARS cockpit immersion almost destroys Forza's.

    This isn't an expectation list, more of a wish list (that I posted on the official forums).

    Once the game's formally announced I'll make a new thread and turn it into a checklist so help people decide if the game is worth buying.

    Hello everyone.

    Here are my thoughts on what I would like to see in the next Forza Motorsport title, based on my experience of playing other games and making note of various features that I would like to see in future titles.

    Working in the games industry myself I am fully aware that it will not be possible to implement all of these for various reasons (budget, manpower, licensing, return on investment etc.) but I will suggest them nonetheless as there may be a few in here that the general playerbase would enjoy. Hopefully a few of these will make their way into the next title.

    • Where possible I have quoted a game (in brackets) that contains an example of such a feature, along with a link to a screenshot/footage if available.
    • [h]Items marked in yellow[/h] are ones that are critical to my own personal future enjoyment of the Forza Motorsport franchise.
    • Each item has a [_] checkbox attached. As information about the next Forza Motorsport title becomes available I will update this list and mark off any items which are confirmed to exist in said game. Items marked with ✔️ are confirmed to be present in the next title and items marked with ❌ are confirmed to not exist in said title unless stated otherwise.

    Thank you for taking the time to read this.

    Some good stuff in there, PJ. :tup:

    My personal list has a lot of that stuff too. One thing I am against is the deterioration of a car's engine/chassis a la GT6. While I appreciate the ownership aspect the feature provides, it's exaggerated for effect, and crucially makes setting up online leagues a huge pain. A car gains horsepower after an oil change or the first few hundred miles: it means having to balance cars while taking that into account, or keeping a "fresh" version of the car.

    It's so frustrating in GT6 when I enter a three-race series only to find the car is ineligible part-way through because the PP rating has gone up due to mileage!

    I don't know if the ability to sell cars back to the game and have them enter a used car dealership for other players is necessary: isn't that more or less what the auction house is about? Though, I suppose that isn't actually confirmed for FM7 yet...

    I'm under the impression the lack of USB support for photo mode is a limitation imposed by Microsoft, no?

    Oh yeah, and I'll add one more:
    • No more silly 10-replay file limit!

    Exactly why was it removed again? Did Turn 10 ever say? Other than licensing issues?

    In Forza Horizon 3, there are still some cars that cannot be removed from your garage, leaving you with only one way to get rid of them: the Auction House.

    If said car is a Barn Find it will most likely never sell, which means you're stuck with it forever.

    Potentially; I know that USB support hasn't been available in the Xbox version of Pro Evolution Soccer for the past few years, yet it is available in the PlayStation versions. In those games you can import custom texture files to create accurate football kits.

    Turn 10 hasn't said anything publicly. From what I gather, Volkswagen simply didn't want to renew whatever licensing agreement they had after Forza Motorsport 6. I don't know if Microsoft did something wrong (adding an unlicensed car to the game etc.), the money wasn't at an agreeable point for both parties or whatever.

    I am happy with physics/audio the way they are; it's Multiplayer and Community stuff I'm most concerned about :scared:

    I'd have to agree. Physics have been progressing(slowly, but still) with each iteration, and the audio is immersive enough that the "negatives" aren't really an issue. If they can work some magic and make some changes to these departments, I'm all for it, but I'm not specifically worried about it.

    Lately a bulk of my FM6 time has been spent with the Porsche expansion and it makes me want something similar for FM7 where they give you a timeline of a brand and some background info for each car. Granted I'm not so sure a brand specific one would work simply because there really aren't any older manufacturers left that aren't already well represented. However I think doing something similar with a series/discipline could work rather well, they could even do it for (presumably) both expansion packs.

    Wishlist for idea;

    American Open Wheel Racing - It's been around under one banner or another since motorsports began so there's obviously quite a bit they could do with it.

    NASCAR - This probably won't happen considering FM6 had a NASCAR expansion, but one that covered the entire history would be interesting.

    Sports Cars - It's also been around since racing has so there is plenty of material.

    BTCC - It's been around since 1958 and would give them a good reason to add some British tracks that aren't Brands Hatch or Silverstone.

    I would say F1 as well but so long as Codemasters has the license it would be pointless.

    I really hope that they include the fujimi kaido mountain course and some other originals back into the series in the next one. Ever since the first forza it's been my favorite course. Just imagine in the dead of night on a wet fujimi kaido, 24 cars barreling down the narrow winding road, the more skilled far ahead while the less experienced slamming into the guardrail while some Initial D eurobeat plays through some squeakers headset.

    Also I've found it very annoying how recent installments always have like 40 different car brands but each one only contains 2-8 cars each and then they add more with an expansion pack for around $14.99 which always contains a few cars that almost nobody would want to pay for like an Aztek. Why don't they give most of the cars right off the bat then have some of the best ones or ones that come out after its release date as DLC?

    But mostly I want those tracks, recent forzas are really lacking without them

    Good stuff there - FM2 - 4 had the best soundtrack in my humble opinion. And I really wish they would unveil a new engine. The high-saturation model just doesn't do it for me anymore or the semi-warp speed FOV.

    The wheel and gear shift animation has been by biggest gripe since FM3 but they just don't consider it important enough to fix or improve.
