I can’t even enter Mulege festival forzathon shop to gift someone. When I try to fast travel to that icon on map, it teleports me to dirt roads on outskirts of the town. I can only gift others via Forzathon shop from Festival Playlist menu. I haven’t received a car yet.
I got some cars but only at the normal way through barnfind areas. Think that message maybe appear if you get a gifted car from a friend or something like that? If you get this message only for cars that give credits to the secret santa thingy almost 30 of my last gifts where completly meaningless.
There is an oversight in programming, whenever a Horizon Arcade is active in the area, the holidays stuff disappears and revert to normal for the arcade. There are both Horizon Arcade programmed over the stadium and Mulege which they didn’t turn off.
Sometimes I get a message directly after leaving the player’s house and by pressing enter the barn location is showed on the map - all in the map half near to that player house.
Sometimes I get a message in free roam when I come near a former barnfind location that a gift is waiting for me there.
Sometimes I get a message, it shows me the location, but when I fast travel there, the barn is empty.
Sometimes I get a gift for new players (you can see it at the message of the gifter) even though I play since 4th November and being prestige level 4.
Sometimes I get a gift for being a new horizon superstar - oh yeah, been that since about more than a month now.
And sometimes I even get a gift because of being a precious member of the community - don’t know how I qualified for that. Don’t have any downloaded tunes or liveries yet. Maybe because of the amount of cars I gifted to others?
As almost any option has its unique messages it is easy to identify the purpose of gifting.
