The livery editor on Forza Horizon 5 is getting a bit of an upgrade from its predecessor in FH4. On the Forza Monthly stream for September on Monday, the new look paint shop was given a sneak peek following the Festival Playlist reveal for Forza Horizon 4 Series 40.
Many of the same features from Forza Horizon 4 are prevalent, but the vibe is easily different at first glance. The new paint booth brings a new sense of organization over previous iterations with some added benefits for more straightforward car painting.
The user interface for the program has been “reimagined” per Creative Director Mike Brown. On top of that, Brown says that the resolution has been greatly increased so that it will look crisp for you and for other players elsewhere.
Options are more streamlined for quicker creation, tools such as mirroring decals make it easier to have the same design on both sides of the car. It looks like there are in-game logo decals that can be placed, as seen below with the Horizon Festival and Eterna decals on the left side of the Porsche 911 GT2.
It is technically unknown if custom logos can be imported. They haven’t been importable in the past, so I’m not holding my breath, but just think how much easier it would be if you could. A man can dream.
Now, I’m a sucker for a good looking car and an even bigger sucker for an easy way to make said cars good looking, so I’m all on board for a good in-game car painter. People have made spot-on logos and recreations from the most basic of shapes in the past.
I’ve seen people do some crazy looking things with a lot less in previous Forza titles back in the day, so I’m looking forward to seeing what some of the pros can come up with when the new game launches. Hopefully, this livery editor can get the job done. Look out for the upcoming game when it releases on 9th November.
