This may be “cheating” - but is anyone out there helping each other out with these specific photography accolades? I’m not big on the photo aspect of the game, but there are a few accolades I’d like to finish.
For example: 15 Minutes of Fame - Have a published photograph that has been downloaded 5 times.
I was wondering if anyone out there helps each other out by just going to download others photos to complete the accolade. If not, then second question - is the only way to “download” it via Xbox? Can anyone download a photo to help via web/internet
Someone literally just posted on reddit… Share 50 random photos and make 2 profiles, complete 4 initial races and search for your creative hub and from there download and like 50 photos from both the profiles and you’re done.
Using the same method would be harder as it would require making 334 liveries and downloading and liking each livery/vinyl shape from 3 accounts. Still you cannot get uses. Why does PG insist on putting these unfair accolades is beyond me. Same happened with FH4 for becoming Painter superstar. All things wrong with FH4 seeped into FH5. Sucks tbh. To make matters worse, Vinyl uses doesn’t count. My usage counter is stuck at 0 in accolade even after having 300-400 Vinyls downloaded.
If you check Top 10 or Top 20 people on Hall of Shame, check out their creative hub. Most of them have shared useless squares circles as vinyl shapes and bunch of only black/white liveries. Why?? You get the idea. I don’t even think that’s cheating.
it’s ridiculous that they’ve locked away accolades behind being a YouTuber or influencer of some description. Completing accolades is one of the few reasons I’m still playing this game and knowing I’ll never be able to get these accolades has really dampened my spirit. Although I may just squeeze the lower level photography ones due to my gallery I doubt I’ll ever achieve the tune and heaven forbid the livery ones.
@LSD51ZEN - THANK YOU SO MUCH. I didn’t see how many photo challenges there are and didn’t even realize I could use other profiles on the xbox. I really appreciated you helping me out, I logged in and saw it and I was SHOCKED, thought it was a glitch. LOL.
I will literally create 7 more photos right now. I’ll try to be somewhat creative. HAH. I appreciate that.
It’s not cheating, no…going against the way they intended it for it to be done? Maybe…then again, 90% of players probably would have no hope of completing them anyway and PGG know that. If the community is willing to help others out, then fair play…it’s not like it’s FH4 where you could simply share photots then unshare before sharing again to boost the Star Card.
Besides, how is asking people on the forum any different than a YouTuber asking their viewers/followers to download things? Playground are pushing the social aspect of the game…well, you are being social by engaging with other players on the forum…you could argue asking for this help is precisely what PGG wants!!
Nursemorph, I can choose the time to do this tedious nonsense using my 3 other profiles, but I absolutely don’t like it when it’s broken, at least for use.
I’ve completed 1000 downloads and likes for designs, vinyls and tunes, but it’s broken for use.
I’ve used this a few dozen times, but I’ve only managed to get 13 uses for designs, 5 for tunes, and 0 for vinyls.
P.S. It seems to me that such accolades should not be in the game at all, all tasks should be achievable for each user, and not just for talented painters or tunes creators.
I think the vinyl uses thing is broken - The design and tune one - I think you have to complete a race with it for it to count. Simply applying them to the car and driving around isn’t enough - is my understanding.
Yes, that’s right, you should use this in the race. I have done this many times, but for vinyl there is no progress at all, and for tune, you have to complete 3 races and only after that you will get 1 use, for design you need to complete 2 races. But it still doesn’t work in most cases, and lately it’s absolutely broken for me.
p.s. You can also do it in drag racing.
Also, thanks for pointing out the other thread. Forgot there are just as touch challenges for tuning, livery, etc etc. Hope that other thread works out. I created a bunch of these custom things in hopes I can just finish those accolades.

Thanks in advance to anyone that helps out.
If anyone shares codes here, I’m happy to check them out and like/download.
