    So just yesterday alone I got 30/50 achievements for 300/1000 points. Made it to Level 10, lots of fun.

    Yeah, hats off to Turn10 for the achievements in this one being actually accessible, instead of "win 19028512506182675125 to the 80th power online matches for 5 gamerpoints" like a lot of games.

    Truck Invitational was good times. I think every racing night in future should involve a race in this vain. Next time trucks around the Nurburgring?

    The shape looks a little off because of the slight curve of the roof. I'm not 100% happy with the outlines yet, so I'll have a fiddle with them before doing the detail. Also his chin needs a slight shrinking now I see it side by side with the reference. It's about 70 vinyls so far

    So is there no way to look for an individual storefront, like a search by gamertag option? It seems like it's all done through the search criteria. It would be neat if we could browse each others stores.

    Anyone happen to know an answer on this one? I keep hearing that there's ways of doing this, but I haven't found it yet.

    I haven't found a way. I seem to remember seeing you can add a user to your favourites in the storefront, but not sure how you quickly find your friends in the first place.

    You can add custom keywords to items right? Or does the keyword search just search on the name of the item? I was going to suggest we tag all of our creations with PAFORZA or something.

    Don't know if anyone in these parts cares, but the goons are using the 'lljk' tag for their stuff. There's some decent pieces available.

    I think 'penarc' would be a good tag. It almost sounds like a company that produces some kind of racing hardware.

    I've seen a lot of attempts at this logo, and what you've got so far is easily the most accurate in terms of shape, sir. For one though, the "tails" need to be a bit more fleshed-out. Longer, and a bit fatter, that is. The front half is amazing, but the back half is proportionately about half the size it needs to be. Also, the "chin" should be less of a circle, and have more of a point at the bottom. But seriously, great stuff so far, dude. That logo is an absolute bitch to reproduce, I speak from first-hand experience. Color me all kinds of impressed. :^:

    Also, I really appreciate that you're even making an effort to fulfill my insatiable request. Hats off to you, sir.

    Sounds good to me. I'll be tagging my stuff with that. I hope to finish my first race/replica livery tonight. I'll post up some pics once I have them for anyone interested. What seems to be a good standard price for a full car design?

    I could be down for some multiplayer later, especially if we do some stock or low-PI stuff. I haven't had time to setup too many cars yet.

    I'm really impressed with the rally(ish) courses in this game. Going down Fuji Kaido in a Tiburon for the F class event was hilarious (was thinking of buying a C1 for the event but didn't feel like dropping 100k), and the E class Positano event is making me want to buy a Fiat 500 in real life.

    Tinkered about with the vinyl editor tonight and made my first attempt at an actual logo, the results of which you can see on the side of one of my lovely Fairladies.

    I made a short video of me playing with the Fanatec wheel if anyone is interested. I cut it off slightly before I slammed into a wall and dropped a 'fuck' so it wouldn't be like that on youtube. I was hoping my dog would get up so you could continue to be in awe of how massive he is but he decided to just lay there instead (you can see him in the bottom right).

    How's the ABS vibration thingie (both wheel and pedals)? Is it mostly accurate by default, or did you have to tweak it?

    cakemikz, i was extremely nervous the entire time watching you're video haha. really makes me want to get a wheel again (had the MS wheel for FM2, but i drove so bad comparable that i returned it).

    in other news, my Martini Racing Lancia Delta livery is up on the storefront now. if anyone is interested, you can find it under 'penarc'.

    I was noticing the benchmark layouts weren't very descriptive and misleading in some cases, so for anyone curious I thought I'd post a bit of a summary:


    Layout A: Pretty much free roam, just a small segment in the middle that's boxed off to mark laps.

    Layout B: 1.2 mi Oval track, Wide, passes through hangar and has rough pavement section.

    Layout C: 1.2 mi Oval track, no obstacles, smooth pavement

    Layout D: 1.2 mi Tri-oval, Passes through hangar but cosmetic only. No obstacles of note.

    Layout E: As A, but with no obstacles. Big, flat parking lot.

    Layout F: 1.5 mi B-shaped Road course.


    TLDR: B, C, D, E are for racing, A, C are for making videos and testing.

    Edit: Also A and C would probably be good for tag and maybe cat and mouse, etc in multi but be advised that the AI fails entirely to grasp the point of these courses.

    So I've been doing searches for "penarc" and the only items coming up are my own.

    Edit: Took a pic of my little Brera. I love this thing, man...I've since changed the color and added a bit of a vinyl scheme to it, but haven't gotten any pics yet. The new design is up on the storefront, anyway.

    I couldn't really say. I drive with ABS off, and while it is still supposed to vibrate to let you know that the brakes are about to lock up...it hasn't jumped out and grabbed me. That isn't to say it isn't working..or even doing a very good job...it may just be that it feels so natural I have not noticed.

    krylon666 - I am glad it was so exciting. That car was very difficult to drive.

    Yeah, The back end looks a little different on that roof compared to how it did in the vinyl editor, but it definitely needs adjusting anyway. I am only noticing the major problems with it now I see it alongside the original.

    Other than cockpit mode you can look in through the windows in photo mode. I think you get worse textures than in cockpit view but it's still neat to look in through the car's window and see the dials are all running.

    I'm starting to notice more and more that I'm getting faults flashing up on straight parts of a track, presumably from my car bottoming out. I can't see or hear it happen, but it seems the only real possibility. What's strange is it's happening with cars where I haven't even tweaked the ride height. Is there any obvious way to avoid this that I'm missing outside of adjusting the ride height? It's making getting certified laps with certain cars a real pain.
