This was confirmed by Mechberg in the debut livestream. The Mods encourage you to use more difficult Assist settings, and the Mods provide the bonus factor.


They want you to buy tokens and spend them on loot crates instead.

On the contrary some of the mods I have actually encourage me to enable assists like Normal steering, ABS, racing line ect.

With each instalment of Forza it does appear to be catering to a more casual crowd. Nothing wrong with that as long as it's not affecting my experience with the game
Yeah, well, you know, that's just like, uh, your opinion, man- The Dude

Hopefully LAST RESORT is still a mod... I preferred to start in 24th places for the 100% bonus. I already play with all the Assists turned off.
If what I said doesn't makes sense... it's because you don't want it to make sense.

I miss getting bonuses for running with no assists, but whatever. I still run with them off, though. I just enjoy the game more without assists holding my hand.

I don't normally do multiplayer and haven't looked into it in FM7, but if I can force aids off in my games, I will. I did that in past Forzas. In FM4, a friend of a friend, who races dirt tracks in real life, raced me online. Since he does dirt ovals, I set up an oval race at Sonoma. He got mad and almost immediately started trying to wreck me instead of racing. I think he didn't like me forcing aids off and forcing cockpit view. After that I still force off aids but allow other cameras.
I'm not here for friends. I'm here for the truth to the best of my knowledge of it, even if it's not what people want to hear.

Requiring what is objectively the worst camera angle is dumb, and a dick move.

Every lobby should at the very least allow "normal" steering (which is far more realistic than sim steering) and chase cam.

Beyond that, if you force off assists it's wise to state so in the description so the uninformed masses don't wipe us all off the track in turn 1 after their magic braking line fails to appear.

I feel like the bonus is being able to post faster times. Sure it's more difficult but with assists off you can really blow people away.
