Forza Motorsport 7 - join the weekly time trial!


Recommended Posts

Having just seen the in-car footage of GT Sport, the "head cam" in this was really needed. Something more static seems a bit dated now. I dunno though, it sounds like GT might be a platform of sorts going forward, I think I'd prefer Forza to go there rather than slightly iterative updates every 2 years that otherwise forces you to start over.


As silly as this sounds, I very occasionally play Real Racing 3 on my phone, and they've been iterating that for years. New cars, tracks, etc. Totally different business model, I know, but I guess I'm feeling less enthused about another set of tracks to race.

For the first time in the Forza Motorsport series, we’re bringing wide-body kits to a number of cars in Forza Motorsport 7. A select number of kits are completely bespoke and designed in-house here at Turn 10; from underground-inspired designs to aero-enhanced kits modeled after professional motorsport. In addition, numerous body-kit options from Forza Horizon 3 will also be available in Forza Motorsport 7, including Upgrade Heroes like the Nissan S14 and the 240SX SE announced today.

Wheel options will be abundant in Forza Motorsport 7. In addition to bringing over a number of the new-entry wheels from Forza Horizon 3, we’re adding a selection of new race-inspired. Whether you’re building your favorite car for yourself or you want to establish your reputation as a master in the Forza Motorsport 7 tuning scene by sharing your masterpiece on the Auction House, now you’ll have more options than ever to build the cars of your dreams.

Looks like each booth above the pit lane has a different set of car related paintings hanging on the wall :lol: It's pretty cool if you zoom in and have a look at the 4K images on the page.







Not for Sebring or the Nürburgring, or Brands Hatch, or any other track where wet conditions are available.


Wet conditions only available on some tracks. You heard it here first...

Hey footle sort yourself out and stop being a prick in anything Xbox related. Seriously next time you go to post in an Xbox related thread have a wee think to yourself before hitting send and ask if you're adding anything or just being a dick. It'll save us all from reading your SeanR level pish.

the lack of weather on all tracks makes me think they haven't written a clever dynamic weather & lighting system that can be applied to anything, but rather have something a lot more scripted, with a whole separate set of art assets for the courses that its included on.

This was what was reported after the E3 demo because the demo was designed to show off the weather on the Nurburgring race. If it had been dynamic many who played the demo might not have seen the full effect of the incoming storm. Assuming the tech is based on Horizon's weather and lighting it will be both fully dynamic and make every race unique.


That some tracks don't feature rain is more likely due to it not raining in the track's location in reality but this is considered unrealistic by those who want realistic simulations. Or just want to pick holes in an Xbox game.

Presumably, which is a very 2005 way of doing things.

I'd imagine so. Less processor intensive in real time and potentially better results (e.g. You can apply many more processor resource to calculate how a puddle grows over time on a track at a particular point after N minutes rain, and just have a look up table). Thing is, it might also give better results.


@Boozy: there's a difference between "dynamic weather" turning storms on and off at different points in a race, and modelling water pooling into puddles dynamically based on that. In the second case I'd actually expect the lookup table approach: why do it on the fly at 60fps?!


Games are smoke and mirrors. Even simulations. Turn 10 know that. Playground Games basically turned on a wet road texture in FH3: water wasn't building up on corners or dips.

Bill Giese, Creative Director at Turn 10, explained in an interview with Official Xbox Magazine (OXM) UK (September 2017, issue #154) that Forza Motorsport 7 will feature dynamic image-based lighting (like in Playground’s Forza Horizon 3) on all platforms as well as dynamic HDR skies (again, like in Forza Horizon 3) on Xbox One S and Xbox One X.

However, there is one technical feature that will be only available on Microsoft’s upcoming Xbox One X console (as well as on Windows 10 PC, in all likelihood). That’s dynamic cube mapping which, according to Giese, will help “better seat the cars in the world”.


Dynamic cube maps have six different 2-D images (textures), one for each side of a cube map texture, instead of just one like with static cube maps. What’s interesting to note is that rendering dynamic cube maps automatically means rendering the scene six times for each frame, not counting the main frame render. As a result, this technique requires a lot of power, which explains why it will not be available on less powerful Xbox One devices.

Forza Motorsport 7 also packs additional graphics enhancements across the board such as improved particle effects and ambient occlusion techniques as well as increased grass density, but Turn 10 also took great care of the game’s audio. Giese said:

We want players to see, hear and feel the explosive power of motorsport. For all 700 cars the instrumentation clusters are going to rattle, windshield wipers and mirrors vibrate – it’s that feeling of the car at its peak. We’ve overhauled the audio for our driveline flex, so you can hear the car tearing itself apart. It can be scary, but it feels more alive and grounded than before.
