Forza Documentation (History, Guides, and More!)

, , , ,

Welcome to the Forza Documentation Topic I had created. This is where I will house mostly history based documentation and other useful guides/history focused (credited in the form of replies) below as well. If you feel that the community would benefit off of your works, feel free to share it as a reply and give some background information about yourself and the topic at hand. If you are using outside sources, please properly cite it. As well as if they have a gamertag, please mention the gamertag in your reply!

My Contributions:

Cars
A list of every car ever featured into each Forza title as well as how many times it was introduced. Took about 6 months, 3 months lost to a google doc corruption and 3 months redoing it on excel. All of the work is my own except the photos which are included from the Forza Wiki (cited below). As well as double checking my list with the wiki to make sure I am not missing any Unicorn Cars or other cars. Now Includes the Expansion Cars as well (Photos Taken from the official website)
-Mercedes Needs to be Corrected!
-Photos Still Being Added!

Music From Horizon Titles Newest to oldest -FH5 ->FH1 (WIP):
-Horizon Rocks/Vagrant/XS

-Horizon Pulse

-Horizon Bass Arena

-Horizon Block Party

-Horizon Hospital Records (wip)

Great job! It would be better though if you blocked the third row at the top and added a filter so you can search cars and games quicker and also directly see which car was in which game.

Im going to be honest with you I have no clue how to do that or I would… but appreciate the feedback and all it means a ton!

Hm… It seems you can’t lock rows in Excel online.

Filters are applied by going to Data > Filter

But you need to have the 3rd row at the top of the screen or select a cell in it I think.

More Documentation
I was talking about my Car List in the Official Forza Discord I was creating and stumbled upon @T10ManteoMax aka @ManteoMax mentioning about his list. Which shocked me as I didn’t know he had a list. It is extremely detailed and he had been been working on it for 11 years now and counting!! I highly recommend you check out his documentation as well!

Painting Guides
For those struggling in the painting scene I highly recommend you view this forum. It really revolutionizes the painting scene. When I first began to paint, this guide was recommended to me by @PTG_Wildcat (who is a super talented painter) and wish others knew about this. This guide created by @PJTierney1 helps showcase the pure power of glass 2k and the benefits. As well as glass2k obeying TOS so you have nothing to worry about. That being said its important to make sure that your paints you are creating obeys Forzas TOS itself (https://support.forzamotorsport.net/hc/en-us/articles/360035563914-Forza-Enforcement-Guidelines)

Another awesome thing to use is (https://coolors.co/) which was recommended to me a while back by another super talented painter and great friend @aeqnx . This allows you to create a pallet of colors to help you view any incoming projects.

For Glass 2k you can also use it if your a console player as well!! Same sort of rules apply… you still need access to a laptop/pc though to stream to your console. I run glass2k on my laptop and use xbox console companion to stream to my Xbox and do it that way. Do not be afraid to be creative with it

Tuning Guides
For tuning, I highly recommend you check out @HokiHoshi and @SepiSP4 . They both have great tuning guides as well and couldn’t really choose one or the other. Hoki is really good about going down into details about why tuning is affected by what you do. Sepsi aka SP4 is really good about explaining meta based tuning and how to really push your car to its limits.

PR Stunts
Hi everyone, I’m a leaderboard hunter on FH5 and have been going after records for the past two years. I mainly specialize in PR Stunts, so I wanted to give people a rundown of how to learn more about this in case you want to improve your scores! I myself have a YouTube channel which I upload high scores on (typically legitimate world records), and there’s a number of other leaderboard hunters in our community which I would recommend checking out. Feel free to leave a reply in any of our comment sections in case you have questions. Additionally, we run a discord server that’s centered around PR Stunts, anyone is welcome to join if they want to learn more and improve.

Here is the link to the Discord Server: Forza Horizon PR Stunts

Here are the links to my channel, along with others in the community:

Thank you so much! They really are the pr stunt leaderboard gods and super well mannered too.

As an extra resource, I will attach our world record spreadsheet here. Since the leaderboards are currently flooded with hundreds to thousands of cheaters, it’s nearly impossible for most to track down what the highest legitimate scores are.
