Hi everyone, I have about 6 million credits. Would this be enough to buy one of them? Thanks:) Or, should I just but dlc for forza 3 and start over? ( I've just finished season 2 that's it.

The price of the unicorn car is relative. Since you can't out right buy one, it is difficult to say what the right price is. Right now 6 million may do it for you.

They went somewhere between $60 million to $150 million in Forza 3. Maybe $50 if you got lucky.

I saw one earlier that was at 273million and I thought how could any have this much money with it being a week old...

Thx you guys. Un-fucking believable. Here I am earning my hard earned credit, and people mess up a great menu and feature to a good game. I will move my data to a memory card then, and get my unicorn achievement with a new game.

Can you confirm that this works. Moving your data onto a memory stick. Starting over using a more update forza 3 transfer. Then transfer it back?

It works. I did it today and actually had to by the VIP DLC for FM3

Difference between this and Forza 3 is there is a whole Unicorn car section in the auction house. By the looks of it its going to be permenant getting a Unicorn car should be pretty easy just like the rest of the game.

Unicorns will likely be around the 6-10mil range legitimately.Though higher for people who are excellent hot lappers making use of the rivals mode and playing constantly. I personally think anyone over 20mil at the moment is probably not legit - unless they are good tuners/painters making money in the store front.

You can make tons of money legitimately in this game. I just realized last night how much you can make in rivals mode and I made about 2 million in around 2 hours hot lapping. The unicorn prices seem to have gone up already.

I peeked at them last night, with 2 hours left of the auction this is what the prices were at.....

Lambo Gallardo 575million
Ferrari Challenge Stradale 575million
Shelby GT500 273million

There were 2 of each car with only 2 hours left of each auction and I heard that the same dude won 4 of them. So good luck bidding guys lol

That dude will be banned shortly don't worry.

Problem is they aren't doing anything quick enough. Same thing happened last time, the unicorns became nothing more than a rat trap. All the normal player miss out while they use them to catch cheats, why they thought having more unicorns was a good thing is beyond me. Frankly I think they should completely scrap unicorns.

I love the idea of the unicorns but they have to be legit and watched closely after otherwise you get whats going on now.

The concept of unicorns is really cool, but after what happened in Forza 3, i pretty much don't care about them because I'll probably never be able to get one other than being gifted one.

The dedicated tab is nice in the auction house, but they were out of reach on day one for me, and I agree...why so many of them now?

I had forza 3 (and thought I'd done everything there was to do in it) but I never even heard of these unicorn cars. I'm guessing they're just rare variants of certain cars that they put out via marketplace codes or something?

Whatever they are, my question is; are they something that if someone in this community got hold of one, we could pass it around and all get the achievement, then give it back to the original owner, or is it something that is going to be impossible to "boost"?

I ask, because this thread is making me think that the only way I'll ever get this achievement is if I waste the next 48 hours of my life doing nothing but playing forza to make stupid amounts of money fast, as I'm a latecomer to the game and have some catching up to do. I have 2 days off work, so I guess I could do it, but I wasn't really planning to spend 48 hours doing nothing but playing by friggin xbox. I hope I'm wrong, but you guys are giving me the feeling that this achievement is likely to be obtained either now or never.

Please tell me I'm wrong.

From what I've heard, Unicorn cars can't be gifted or re-auctioned. The alternative method is to import a FM3 profile that has the VIP DLC cars on them. athi is how I ended up getting the achievement as like many of you guys. I don't think I would ever be able to win won outrght.

Yeah this pretty much sux lol. I got the achv but there are 2 badges I will probably never open up because of this.

One is for owning 5 unicorns and the other is owning 10 unicorns. Don't think that will happen lol

Is it just me or have the unicorns vanished from the auction house. I noticed some on Saturday but by Sunday they were all gone. Haven't seen any since.

Well I'm up to 500k legitimately so maybe in a few months I'll be able to afford on of these.

Some more unicorns went up about an hour ago, but my 4 mil isnt enough already and there is a supra at 1bn again, thought they were sorting this?

How the *&%$ are you supposed to get a unicorn car when they cost 1 billion credits?!?!?

They're probably still weeding out the cheaters. It's obvious that no one can legitimately afford a billion credits so Turn 10 is likely to ban the shit out of whoever it is.

I was just on the auction house before signing off for the night. Everything except the 3 Integras that were up were 1 billion. I only care about owning one unicorn and that's the Camaro SS. I never managed to land one in 3 and I have no doubt it'll be the same with 4.

I see what you mean, I have just hit driver level 51 and got 105,000 for it.

I was checking late last night a few unicorn were cars up, so i bid 4.6 million on a Ferrari then i go to bed. I get up this morning check it said car auction is under review price changed to 999,999,999 wtf now my credits are frozen!

Will i get my credits back when it is finished being reviewed or am i just screwed out of 4.6 million credits?:mad:

When do these unicorns go up now? I haven't seen one in the AH for 3 days.

As far as your credits go, I think you'll get it back. Once they ban the cheats, the car can be reallowed for people to get back their credits. But I would suggest contacting Turn10 directly. Not that I expect they'll reply.

DominicH1712

Some went up in the early hours of this morning, but by 9am were taken down again. I think they are still messing around with the credit cheaters.

The problem is, they did this last time. It just didn't help. I gave up trying after the first year, no idea if the prices ever returned to normal.

Once a cheat is out there it snowballs. If they ever ban everyone involved, I'd be surprised.

This is lame. I want the Top Secret S15 unicorn but theres no way i'll ever be able to able millions of credits to buy it and im not about to do a money glitch just to get it. i really do hate the people who's only sad goal in life is to spoil things for other people.

Mohegan13
10-18-2011, 03:37 PM
I want all of them, I love to collect cars. I have issues with the unicorns on principal. I believe all cars in the game should be available to all players equally.

The unicorns go against that. If the game launched in all territories on the same day, people would have at least had a chance before the credit hack became popular on DAY2 of North American release. /minirant

I will hopefully know at 11pm GMT time if i get my 4.6 million credits back, that is when the auction ends. I sent a message to the gamertag it has turn 10 logo lol:)

I think for the Unicorn cars when you buy a car, by chance it can be or turn into a unicorn car. 1 car in X amount is a winner it would encourage people to buy more cars, me anyway! Not this crap i have about 7 million if i get my other credits back, whats the point in blowing all my credits on a car i can't resell for at least what i paid?

Passing on this achievement. I can't get 100% anyway, with my lack of Kinect. This seems more trouble than the 10 - 15Gs its worth.

Noclaf68
10-18-2011, 04:26 PM
Having rare items in games like this I think is fine. But Turn 10 should have them as unlockables in the game for loyalty to the game. Some examples are 100% completion of previous Forza games, or X amount of miles driven without using a hired driver. I just know i probably wont get this achievement since I am not creative enough to win any of the contests, and I certainly have more integrity than to glitch to get millions of credits.

Come on Turn 10 lets reward the true fans of the series and not just the assholes that ruin it for the rest of the community.

I'm not sure Fred actually puts the unicorns up, it think it's an automated system that just uses his GT. Being a T10 employee he may get a lot of messages so if you do get a reply it might not be soon.

Personally I think unicorns should be special liveries on existing cars that are only gifted to to winners of competitions and people who race with devs. That way they are truely rare cars. No one else would have a car designed for the photo contest, with place number, GT and date for example. That's what unicorns should be, not cars that just can't be bought by non-cheating players.
