The place for off-topic discussion
The Incredibly Unofficial Forza Motorsport 3 thread
9th June 2010, 17:47 at 5:47 pm #127698
Right, I know TommyB started a Forza F1 liveries thread the last time the forum was up and around, but I thought I’d start a general thread for the game, hense why it’s not in the ‘F1 discussion’ bit this time round.
I really like playing Forza Motorsport 3 on the Xbox 360, and I know a few others on here do too, so I propose this as a place where we can share tips and tricks, liveries, tuning setups, or even GamerTags so that we can race together. It’s always more fun racing against people you ‘know’ rather than ending up on a grid full of randoms.
I’m not too bad at the driving side of things. I can usually get a car into the top 1% on the leaderboards. But what I really enjoy is the livery editor, simply because it has so many possibilities, and because I like the paint jobs on racing cars as much as I like the cars themselves.
Here are a few of my designs:
Honda NSX GT based on Jenson’s race-winning Honda RA106:
Replica of Kimi’s Rally Finland Punto S2000 (on a Fiat 500, as the Punto isn’t in the game):
John Cleland’s 1996 BTCC Vauxhall Vectra (on a Lotus Carlton, as the Vectra isn’t in the game)
I’ve painted a few more since, but I need to get some screenshots of them.
So, does anyone else play Forza and wanna share? I know TommyB does, and has a lot of Red Bull-inspired liveries. My gamertag is the same as my username here; ‘ajokay’, feel free to add me (just send a message so I know who it is!)9th June 2010, 18:10 at 6:10 pm #134637
:-O how rude, it was me that started the last livery thread :-P
I’ve not painted any more since last time as it’s been my final year at uni. However I’m all finished now so I’m sure I’ll be making a few more liveries :) Tom’s made quite a few cool ones based on Vettel and Hamilton’s helmets :)
I LOVE that Kimi Fiat 500! So cute.
That’s my Red Bull livery I posted last time.9th June 2010, 18:26 at 6:26 pm #134638
I’d love to get involved… but I don’t own an Xbox. I have a PS3, but until Sony get their act together and release GT5, I don’t have any racing games for it. I did get a chance to try Forza though, it was at the Toys R Us in Times Square (very sad I know), and I was very impressed.
Oh, it may not be Forza, but here’s a livery I designed the other day: http://tweetphoto.com/257790849th June 2010, 18:38 at 6:38 pm #134639
anyone play rfactor? sorry to change the game.9th June 2010, 19:08 at 7:08 pm #134640
rFactor is a very good game! i used to play it quite a bit, but then I managed to corrupt my install and haven’t got round to installing it all again!!
I’m going to be a bit controversial here and say that Forza3 isn’t a good game!! I used to run a forum dedicated to racing games and despite Forza2 being very good Forza3 was a major let down, they ruined the online side and it seems the handling and track detail has gone backwards!!
Sorry slightly off topic!! Back on topic, here is a few I done from Forza29th June 2010, 19:46 at 7:46 pm #134641
Started them ages ago, then i got bogged down with uni work and my xbox broke and ive not baught a new one yet, so they will probably never be finished :(9th June 2010, 19:56 at 7:56 pm #134642
I’d like to keep this as a Forza thread really, but of course you’re very welcome to start an rFactor thread.9th June 2010, 20:55 at 8:55 pm #134645
Here are some car designs I’ve done:
Toro Rosso STR3

Vettel’s Bahrain 2009
Alguersuari’s 2010 design.
I sent Jaime this on Twitter and he actually replied to me saying it was awesome! WIN!9th June 2010, 22:34 at 10:34 pm #134647
Love the helmet designs Tom, the two Vettel ones are very intricate.
And sorry Katy, yes it was you who started the thread originally, I’ve sent you the cute Kimi car as compensation!
Two new ones. Japanese Super GT versions of the NSX in 2006 Honda F1 colours, Lucky Strike ‘Racing Revolution’ and Chinese Grand Prix ’555′ versions.9th June 2010, 23:48 at 11:48 pm #134648
I don’t have a 360 or a PS3, but I regularly go round to a friends place to play Forza. I’m almost tempted to buy a 360 just for playing Forza… If only I didn’t spend all my money on guitars.10th June 2010, 11:13 at 11:13 am #134649
If these are your own works why is everyone just posting links, why don’t you all post the actual picture. It would be great to just see them instead of having to click on each one.
I know, I’m lazy.10th June 2010, 11:57 at 11:57 am #134650
Some images are big and clog up the thread or stretch wider than the main column.
But also, I’m not sure if embedding images works any more.
Nope… doesn’t look like it. Linking it is, sorry :(10th June 2010, 21:33 at 9:33 pm #134651
Nope can’t seem to embed images anymore. So i suggest the Ctrl+Click method.
