  1. Forza Motorsport 7

    Yeah, it's odd - I;m sure my this point in 4/5/6 they'd switched on the real money microtrans stuff, but I wonder if, in the light of the Battlefront outcry, they decided not to bother. loosely related - a free DLC pack was released yesterday, but don't get too excited, it's just a pait of hyundai velosters. And later today, we'll have the next proper car pack. there's been clues posted over the weekend, but as impenetrable as usual.
  2. Star Wars - the new canon

    I got "From A Certain Point Of View" for Christmas and highly recommend it. As a short story collection it's easy to dip in and out of and varies hugely in tone, but nearly all the stories are really enjoyable - my personal highlights were Gary Wihitta's Captain Antilles story, Pablo Hidalgo's study of Tarkin and Krennic, and the two stories focusing on droids. Well worth picking up. It is a bit like the thing that's often joked about with Star Wars (and the old EU in particular) that every minor character ended up with a huge backstory, but I don;t mind that (though possibly I could have done with one fewer "cantina person" stories in the book).

    It's a matter of personal preference though the serious sim crowd sometimes look down on third-person viewers because it can be a (slight) advantage to get a better view of corners that should be blind to a "real" driver. I've long been an cockpit/bonnet driver mostly because I feel it gives a better sense of feedback as to what the car is doing, how it's sliding and so on by being directly attached to the car. but really just use whatever works best for you...
  4. Forza 7 - Historic Trophy Season 4

    We had the final round on Sunday- but we will be back racing in the new year! loose plans are for a series sort of hovering around the 80s and also for a one-off, 40 minute enduro in stock Lola T70s.

    Oh dear. Well hopefully we should be running some more races in the new year... anyway- season finale this Sunday! Be there or be square.

    Last minute reminder for tonight’s meeting at Suzuka!
  7. Forza 7 - Historic Trophy Season 4

    Quick Heads-up: The speciality dealer this week is selling two eligible cars - the Lancia Stratos Stradale and the Nissan Skyline GT-R KGPC110. If anyone wants to swap cars into one or other of these, they can do so without penalty. the same will apply if any more eligible cars turn up in the speciality dealer before the end of the champ.

    I use a wheelstand pro, which is big, and heavy, but really solid (and can fold away with the wheel attached). I used to use a folding table for my older wheels, but that one generates a lot more force. as to whether it's worth it at 220 quid - maybe. it really depends how much use you see getting out of it. I play a lot of racing games so for me I would have said yes. I still reckon wait for the weekend, I think it'll go back down. BTW, good stuff in the speciality dealer this week - the street version of the stratos and the '73 Nissan GT-R, (both of which are elegibe for the Rllmuk historics series) plus the S14 silvia, which is a good base for a drift car.

    I use a logitech G920, which is a lot cheaper than a fanatec but still very nice. https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing-accessories/computer-accessories/game-controllers-and-joysticks/logitech-driving-force-g920-wheel-gearstick-bundle-10139462-pdt.html if you keep an eye on that page, it's almost guaranteed to drop to 150-160 in black friday deals.
  10. Games Workshop, An Appreciation Thread

    for painting tips, have a good look at the warhammer youtube channel. It's a great resource and has helped my improve a lot. between that and the app it'll see you right. Bear in mind also that the managers in stores will often be happy to help young players get started, teach painting and so on.

    Thanks to everyone who took part last night - the results and standings are on the blog, and there should be a meeting report later in the week. https://historictrophy.blogspot.co.uk/p/season-4-results.html Looks like we'll have a bigger grid at Mugello in two weeks. Meatball, I'm still fiddling with the Holden - I'll share a tune later this week.
  15. Forza 7 - Historic Trophy Season 4

    it’s ironic as I wanted a slightly earlier start than the 9PM it used to be to help the folks on European time... but don’t worry if you have to miss a meeting- the championship scoring has 2 dropped scores out of 8, so as long as you can make the others then you’ll still be in the running.
