Thought I would make a thread dedicated to community sharing of tips and tricks that you've found in Forza 7 and could help others make the most out of the game. To keep it organized and helpful we will use categories to keep them from becoming confusing. Gameplay Forza 7 has a new view that is closer to the dash and negates the steering wheel in most vehicles; this view makes it easier to see the dials on your dash and anything on the road ahead of you. Controls If you prefer using manual w/ clutch on a controller I would suggest going into the controller options and switching LB/A for clutch/handbrake, using A for the clutch will likely be much easier for you. If you're using an Elite controller you can actually use the paddles to shift up and down, clutch, handbrake or even for changing views and looking back. Single Player Go to assists and scroll to the bottom to switch race length from standard to long; the races will become about 15 minutes but this boosts your money making potential a huge amount and can result in fun races with time to catch up to first. When doing the showcase events that have races you should switch the race length back to standard as you cannot use mods in these races, these races only matter for the car reward and not really for making credits. Multiplayer If you're in a party chat and you go to multiplayer it automatically switches your party chat audio to game chat; watch out for this. If you're looking for people to play with outside of hoppers you should try using Looking for Group; press the Xbox button and tap to the left twice to get to the party window and go do to Looking for Group, select Forza 7 and search for posts that looking interesting to you or create a posting. Car Collecting Unless there is a car you must have you should refrain from buying cars and instead focus on leveling up so you can buy cars with heavy discounts after leveling; this is also going to rapidly increase your car collector level progress which increases those discounts even more.(Maximize XP by using mod cards and driving long races at the very least.) If a car comes up that you want but can't afford right now you can skip it by hitting the B button and it will go under a car cover in the rewards section. You can go there later and buy it with the discount when you have the funds or you can at any point go there and choose to take the credit reward instead of the car if you want.(HBR-Roadhog) Upgrading If you buy a new car for a race you should always upgrade it yourself as the standard homologation parts tend to not equip the best suspension, brake or transmission upgrades. Tuning A Forza Motorsport 7 tuning calculator can be found here: http://www.bg55.com/u2scforzatuner-fm7.php Torque numbers can no longer be found in the upgrade menu but can be found in the "My Garage" and "Select Car" menus by pressing Y. When loading a tune do it from the main menu from My Tunes. If you load a tune from a lobby or test drive it will not load properly at present.(HBR-Roadhog) Be aware that sometimes if you choose to overwrite a tune to existing tune will be deleted and the new tune not saved. This has happened to me on one occasion.(HBR-Roadhog) Painting If you want the color on your car to be much more vibrant than possible with normal paint, go to flakes and press X to set the first tint and Y to set the second tint; this can result in more vibrant colors. Economy Do not waste money on the 20k credit mod boxes, the cards you get mostly have 30% bonuses; instead buy the 50k mod boxes which most cards have 50-60% bonuses and a chance for a card with much larger bonuses and XP bonuses. Take note of the bonuses on the FE cars They offer credit bonus when driven and offer additional credit bonus when driven on a specific track or under a specific condition. The VIP BMW for example is 50% bonus anywhere and another 50% at Nurburgring the amounts and the track or condition vary on the other cars but all of them offer some sort of bonus.(HBR-Roadhog) Other An easy way to improve the in-game sound for headset users(for every game on your Xbox) is to enable Windows Sonic or Doby Atmos as this will simulate 7.1 or even higher with Doby Atmos. Windows Sonic is free but Doby Atmos requires a license which either comes with your stereo or headset or has to be bought for your Xbox One to use. Go to settings on your Xbox One, go to "Display & Sound", click "Audio Output", Click the drop down box under "Headset Audio" and choose Windows Sonic or Doby Atmos(remember that you need a license to use Doby Atmos but Windows Sonic is free. If you are using a headset with a 7.1 simulator like the Astros, turn off that simulator on the mixer. If you are playing on the PC or maybe also on the Xbox if you see missing textures while racing. Close the game and restart at the first opportunity else the issue will continue to get worse until the game crashes or freezes.(HBR-Roadhog) Please contribute below and I'll add your tips and tricks to this list with credit to the contributor.
