Agreed completely! I love that Turn 10 listen to their community. Myself and about three others rallied for the Lotus Cortina in the favorite cars thread. Now lets hope they heard me about the Ginetta G4 for the June Le Mans Pack!



You heard it here first!!!!!

I figured those veterans of GTL would live the Cortina and Healey

I also used to own a Galant VR4, so am looking forward to that as well

Excellent pics, the Healey looks brilliant!!! I don't know why the official
release thread didn't show one of the car.

Thank for the vid, the Cortie and Healey sound great, I'm really looking
forward to the release of this pack, ahead of the Porsche pack; which
I'm sure, given the release of the 312 PB will contain a 917!

Mark, tell my friends at Turn 10, given that they're listening to you, that
I'm still waiting for a virtual '67 Mustang fastback. haha.

Cam.

Yeah, thats been a hot topic. I wonder if that will be all by itself or part of another 10 car pack.

Loving the May DLC, but something funny happened when I tried to purcase this morning. I had 640 MS points and the car pack, that was supposed to cost 560, was listed as 497901730583544 points.

I was unable to purchase in game because the pack cost too much, and I'm sure I could have bought all the cars in real life for less than what that would have cost me. I had to leave the game and purchase from the Xbox360 store. That was wierd.

Didn't have much time to play, but got to take the Hennessey for a spin. It was every bit as insane as I imagined it would be.

How much was it in game? I bought mine thru the Forza interface for 560 points same as Live marketplace.

The Cortina and Austin are great. I tried the Venom rivals event. That thing is a friggin handful with no aids turned on. Pacer is cool, but a total turd to drive. It even sounds like the engine is ready to fly apart. I might do a v8 conversion and see what it's like.

I actually didn't have as much hassle with the Venom. I got used to driving (more like hanging on for dear life) the SSC Ultimate Aero around and the Venom gets the power down a little better than that does.

I looked up some videos, everyone who has driven the Hennessey in real life remarked on how well the car puts the power down, you can mash the pedal from third on. Thats pretty much how the car behaves in game too. Great job T10.

The Cortina and Healey sound great.

They certainly seem to be. I think I'm 3 of 4 so far. We've not seen any of the 97-99 BTCC cars added yet, they'd be 4 of 4.

And only three other people Mentioned the Maserati 300 S after I did. 5 of us with the Healy. And like 6 or 7 the Cortina.

I wouldn't be one of the few with those cars. Even the Sunbeam has been mentioned quite a bit. But I'll through it some more love that's for sure.

They spoke of the Viper pack as a stand alone pack with about three or four cars. I imagine there'll be a GTS, a roadster, and a competition coupe. And probably an Autovista version of one of them.



As to the Top Gear pack and the purchase issues. There was a MAJOR brew-ha-ha about that for about twelve hours the day of the release. Has everyone heard the whole story? Cause I was right in the middle of it that morning at the forzamotorsport site.

It started at about 2am, and went on all morning till about 2pm that afternoon when Turn 10 finally had the glitch sorted out.

I went to DL my pack at about O'dark thirty! Nothing I'm not used too, NO!

Every morning 0 dark 30 A.O.C. for 8 weeks straight. Than every 4th day for years after that. I'd had more midrats than I can puke for the rest of my life. I've had more than your share and his share, and their share. But now I'm getting away from the point.


So there I am trying to DL my Top Gear pack for 3am Cortina love! 4 billion credits???????/ I don't smoke crack! I don't have meth-mouth. And I sure as heck aint pumpin Tiger Blood! Too soon?

So what kind of whipits are Turn 10 on this morning I can't DL my Top Gear pack. I go to forzamotorsports home page. Oh my! EVERYONE is about the 4billion cred glitch!

Worse yet! Some Fool posts this......


"Hey guys go to the dash board and DL the Chrysler, it's the free car. When you do go to Forza and grab the rest of the cars cause they unlocked!"



And then it's like a Black Friday Doorbuster free for all! Turn 10 must've lost millions in two hours. Out of morbid curiousity I DL'd the free car to see if the rumour was true. And voila! All DLC cars are available. I did not purchase any of the cars in game. I left the DLC as is, and awaited to see what Turn 10's response would be.

They were silent all morning till about 1pm or so. When one of the Turn 10 reps chimed in at one of the 40 plus threads posted all morning to say they'd fixed the glitch. But you had to delete the pack from your harddrive to DL it at the proper 560 point price. I DL'd mine by 2pm for 560 and all was well for me after that.

But the forums were ablaze for 8 hours all morning with crazy talk. It was the worst kinda political flame trolling you've ever seen anywhere, except perhaps GTPLanet!!!!


It's amazing how fast people turn on each other when the virtue of stealing become the hotbutton topic.


Was it Turn 10's fault? Or a bunch of thieves always trying to take advantage of any mistake? Well I'm not taking any kind of bite of that shitte sandwich. But holy cow was it all over the forza site that morning I can tell you.


The mods couldn't get a moments peace all morning for all the topics they had to delete. The forums were blowing up like you can't believe. Topics were reaching a HUNDRED freaking pages in less than 10 minutes. You couldn't hit refresh enough times a second to keep up with that traffic! It was Zuckerburg crazy traffic till about 8am. I thought for sure the network was gonna crash. To borrow a quote, "It's a lot of traffic for 4am? No, this would be a lot of traffic for Half Time of the Supperbowl!" You don't wanna know how many toiletbowls get flushed at halftime.


Crazy! That's what it was. I couldn't believe my eyes. I posted three times myself, in one of the topics that may not have been deleted at all. We learned quick not to talk about the free glitch, or you got deleted. We meaning people starting or talking in topics. Cause like I said, the moderators couldn't get two mintutes to take a breath. I sware I saw like 40 to 50 topics that were here one minute, gone the next.

I haven't checked back much since, cause I've been too busy with Cortina/Healy awesome sauce since! Check out my storefront! I've got three GTL liveries loaded up, and 5 total. There's a Vette, number 821, and a Cortina number 902(checkered tintop) that aren't up on my storefront yet. I will do them all if I can. But that will take time.


Crazy, crazy, crazy! I've never seen such a internet catfight in all my internet forum hopping, and I've been doing this from site to site since about 2001! Like I said, maybe GTPlanet has had a topic or two more crazy once or twice.

Anyone else there that morning and got more to add?

I think you've covered the salient points.

I don't know why, but I was under the impression the DLC was the last
of the Season Pass packs: given that my 'Marketplace' flagged it as 'Free'
I motored over to the forums to see if I was the only one 'glitching'.
I saw a little of the aforementioned traffic, before posting my grievances
in the first, of the many, relevant threads.
Not long after that a self inflated, self imposed forum member cum Forza
vigilante thread cop posted, obviously very distressed at the amount of
times his new position had him having to repeat this, that a 'Week
in Review' topic that I'd not read, had stated that the Alpine Stars pack
had concluded the Season Pass content. I felt sorry for Mall Cop, as we'll
henceforth refer to him; it appeared he'd been forced to troll through the
hundreds of threads pointing out the ineptitude of dozens of numpties like
myself, but was glad to have my issue dealt with in a prompt, albeit, dismissive
and belittling fashion.

Perspective's missing here methinks. You see it here too, with threads that
refer to Moderators doing their jobs behind the scenes, and very well might
I add, but upsetting 'backseat moderators' by not divulging to the general
populace the details of bans etc, and describing this as 'Starting to look
like a war': I'd challenge these people to do some research on European
history between 1939 and 1945, and find ANYTHING that happens here
at NoGrip or on the Forza forums that in any way resembles 'a war'.

I'm done. Roll on May 22nd!

TicToc and Mark, your posts made me lol.

I had no idea that this was such a mess, but I can totally imagine what the Forza forums would be like and it would be exactly as you two have described it.

Everyone must have thought the end of the world was near
