@icytower38: See, I thought I had. I guess I will go to youtube, but I would like just a screencap I could gaze at for about 40 minutes trying to figure out which dots I have and which I don't...
The Giant Bomb Forza Horizon Car Club
This topic is locked from further discussion.
@Demoskinos @EarlessShrimp check youtube, there's a good set of video's up but have not seen any good images. My recomendation is to check the dirt driveways and car parks off the side of the roads, also there is one on the damn.Ah Ha! Paydirt!
@PsEG: Do in game messages include beating things like speed cameras? Lately I've been cruising around horizon to find all the stupid discount signs (I still need 5 more and I'VE DRIVEN ALL THE FRIGGIN' ROADS). So, I'm not sure if it recognizes the fact that I'm being 'active'? I'm assuming race night attendance and such will play an active roll in lieu of the messages?
Absolutely. Any and all evidence I have that you're active will factor in, including speed camera messages. So don't worry about it too much and keep playing! I'll figure it out once we get to a point where over turnover's necessary, and I'm not just planning to boot people without warning.
Once we're full, it will take a few weeks to determine initial inactivity, so it will take quite a bit of time to cycle in any new members. Again, accept my apologies for this, but since there's no easy "last active" indicator in-game, I end up analyzing all of the club's in-game activity and gamertags to determine who's playing and who isn't. It is, needless to say, a gigantic pain in the ass.No apologies needed bro, as long as I'm on the waiting list, it's cool.
If yall get room again, toss me an invitation. Been playing the shit out of this game since I got it. I may contribute some vinyl designs too. I'm a bit rusty and I don't quite have the free time of some of the more detailed decal makers, but I should be able to put together some decent GB-related stuff.
So far every game I played with people from the club have been enjoyable and I like the atmosphere. I just wanted to post this to apologize that I'm not speaking even if I have a mic. It's to hide the horrible truth that I'm french and even though I can speak english, I'm not practicing often anymore and I don't want to bother anyone with my butchering of english.
Anyway, great club, great fun.
Hate to say it, everyone, but the club has finally hit 100 members. We'll stay at that cap for a while until I can definitively determine people who aren't active. At this point, that's only about eight people. Once I am able to free up space for people who have moved on, I'll continue inviting down the waiting list, generally based on the order in which you posted. Anyone booted for inactivity can ask to rejoin, no problem, but they'll be at the bottom of the waiting list.
Really sorry to those of you that aren't able to make it in yet, since I'd love to have a club that includes literally every Giant Bomb fan that plays Forza Horizon. Guess that's not exactly normal, though.
Would anyone be willing to make an overflow room of sorts for people wanting in? If there are enough waiting we may have enough to have a good secondary gb club?
I was initially against this, but given the amount of people who haven't made it into the club (about 30 by my count), a second club for overflow might be a really good idea. The main problem is finding someone to manage it that is willing to make a sacrifice and never make it into the main club, and most people aren't willing to do that (which is both reasonable and understandable).
Then again, I have a few dummy gamertags for race nights, and I can give one of them Xbox Live Gold at the moment, so...give me a day or two to figure this out. I might be able to create a looser second club for overflow, and once space opens up in the main club, I can pick people from there. It seems potentially reasonable!
I've made a very bad decision. Giant Bomb now has two car clubs in Forza Horizon.
Those of you who were too late to join the first crew will receive invites to join GB2, or Giant Bomb Team Two. You may also request to join this club in-game, and I'll honor it without the annoying restrictions I placed on the first club. You won't be with many or any of the early birds, but you will hopefully have lots of Giant Bomb users to race against and challenge in Rivals. Plus, I'll be inviting people from Team Two to join the main club once space opens up (if I can determine that).
It's not the best solution, but hopefully it'll be better than leaving 30+ people without a decent club of Giant Bombers for months. First wave of invites go out tonight in just a few minutes.
