Forza Motorsport 6 News Post



The Forza Motorsport 6 October content update, along with the Logitech G car pack arrive today (check out the new trailer here). The car pack comes with the car pass subscription, otherwise it costs $6.99.

Below is the list of cars available in the pack.
  • 2013 Caparo T1
  • 1939 Mercedes-Benz W154
  • 1994 Nissan #75 Cunningham Racing 300ZX
  • 2014 Toyota #12 Rebellion Racing R-One
  • 1967 Honda RA300
  • 1967 Volvo 123GT
  • 2013 Cadillac XTS Limousine
The October content update includes fixes to cars, Drivatars, track updates and more. It also includes the 2015 Infiniti Q60 Concept for free. Check out the full details below.

Cars
  • Corrected the engine sounds for the 2016 Ford Shelby GT350
  • Corrected issues with all of the V8 Supercars in the game, so that each car uses the correct engine sounds.
  • Improved the cockpit camera positioning for a number of cars in the game, including the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, 2011 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4, 1971 Plymouth Cuda 426 and the 1970 Ford Escort RS1600 Fast & Furious edition, among others
  • We have addressed an issue with drivetrain swaps that was causing some cars (including well-known examples such as the 1968 Abarth 595 esseesse, the 1965 MINI Cooper S, and the 1975 FIAT X1/9), to perform beyond their PI classification. To coincide with this fix, we are performing a wipe of all leaderboard times set with a car that used a drivetrain swap. We expect the leaderboard wipe will happen Tuesday (10/6) afternoon. With this content update in place, cars that were previously banned from multiplayer will now be allowed back in. In addition times set in cars that feature drivetrain swaps will be allowed to post times to leaderboards.
  • Numerous additional car improvements and corrections
Track Updates
  • ROAD ATLANTA: Removed an “invisible dip” that was appearing in the drift loop section of the track
  • MONZA: Fixed a bug that allowed players to gain an unfair advantage at the Ascari Chicane
  • TOP GEAR: Corrected several areas that were incorrectly “dirtying” players’ lap times
Drivatars
  • We continue to investigate issues involving inconsistency in Drivatar behaviors during Forza Motorsport 6 races; namely several Drivatars pulling away from the rest of the pack. To coincide with this content update, we have instituted a server-side fix that we believe will help the issue as we continue to investigate further. Stay tuned for more in the future.
  • Fixed an issue where Drivatars were not taking damage when the player was driving with simulated damage turned on
Livery Tune/Import
  • Fixed an issue where players could not import liveries from Forza Motorsport 5 that used certain characters, including the lower case “a” character
  • Corrected an issue where players’ saved tunes could not be applied to a car unless it was applied immediately after downloading it. With this fix, saved tunes can now be applied to cars at any point
  • Addressed an issue where downloaded tunes were missing front suspension settings.
Achievements
  • We have corrected issues with the “World Traveler” achievement, which should now work as expected
Pitting/Rewind
  • Fixed an issue where only a maximum of 2 AI cars could enter the pits at any time
  • Pitting will now fix headlight damage when simulation damage is turned on
  • Fixed an issue with rewind, where players could not rewind when AI cars were in the pits. With this fix, players will now be able to rewind, even when AI cars are pitted
Mods
  • Using Boost Mods in a Career or Free Play race will now “dirty” your lap
  • Fixed an issue where Crew Mods modifiers would only work on the unique track specified on the card. Now Crew Mods modifiers will work as intended, with a general indicated performance increase on all tracks, and a specialized increase on the specified track
  • Fixed an issue where players would get the exact same Mods pack upon starting the game with a new profile
  • Power-related Mods are now applying the correct amount of additional power to all cars
  • Fixed an issue with the “Cockpit Camera/No HUD” Mod, whereby the HUD would reappear after doing a few practice laps.
Multiplayer
  • Better League result reporting after each race, points earned displayed and access to the League Leaderboards in the Lobby
  • Added ability to order the grid by the previous best lap in Multiplayer. This change will be rolled out in the more competitive lobbies first
  • Some multiplayer hoppers will now allow the starting grid to roll off by row in order to help with the congestion in the first and second corners
Miscellaneous
  • Prizes from Tombola spins will now be gifted to the correct player in splitscreen races
  • Fixed an issue with the mini map and the player location arrow when playing in Tag mode
  • Fixed an issue in Free Play where changing the assists in the pre-race menu would reset the Drivatar difficulty level
  • Changed Total Time in the “My Drivatar” menu to appear into days:minutes:seconds format
  • Fixed an issue where telemetry shows no data when viewing a replay directly after a race has finished
  • Fixed an issue where Drift scores report incorrectly, resulting in different leaderboards for different players
  • Fixed an issue where headlights would turn off and then on again after rewinding in a race
  • Fixed an issue where controller dead zones were resetting after completing a race
  • Fixed an issue with control mapping when a player has both a controller and a wheel connected to the Xbox One when starting Forza 6

Good to hear they've at least attempted to fix the issue with the AI drivatars running away from the field.


Going to have to go home tonight and try this out.

That car pack isn't free for me, guess cause I don't have the car pack season pass.

Ya, I updated the OP to avoid any confusion.

I saw that the car pack is $5 off this week at Best Buy. I think I might pick it up. I love the game so far, but this is also my first Forza game.

Well, this update didn't really help the AI issue at all.

Getting to the point where I'm just going to shelf it until its completely fixed. There's zero fun to having to dumb down the AI to some of the easiest levels just to even get a glimpse of 1st and 2nd place that you can't catch after blowing by the whole field and creating about 15 seconds or more separation.

I don't see any A.I. pulling away from the pack , but I have them set on the highest difficulty level, so that might be why. I just wish they would stop ramming my rear bumper and spinning me off the track. I want them to be aggressive but not dirty.

I've had that issue on several races. It happens like the yellow car used to do in RC Pro Am. I'm telling my age lol

Happens basically every race for me. 1st and 2nd just long gone out in front of the pack. No matter which difficulty setting I run it seems.

Yeah, I seem to notice that 1st place is long gone early in the race. I can sometimes grab second place, but that does not happen a lot.

Also to another post above, I too wish that the AI would stop ramming me.

Try turning off the drivatar aggression setting. Does that help?

I will check it out this evening.
