Exploring the vast Mexican landscape in Forza Horizon 5 can result in dust accumulation and vehicle damage. To maintain the car’s appearance, players have several options to prevent or reset damage.

Disabling Car Damage

Avoiding Cosmetic Damage

Frequent damage resets can be time-consuming. A more efficient approach is to turn off car damage permanently, allowing players to enjoy an unblemished vehicle regardless of driving conditions.

Steps to Disable Car Damage

Steps to Disable Car Damage FH5

To disable car damage:

  1. Pause the game and access the “Settings” menu under the “Campaign” tab.
  2. Select “Difficulty” and navigate to “Damage and Tire Wear“.
  3. Change the setting to “None” to prevent any cosmetic damage to the vehicle.

Retaining Vehicle Aesthetics

Permanent Pristine Look

With car damage turned off, vehicles remain visually unscathed, regardless of crashes or off-road driving. This setting can be reverted anytime if players wish to experience more realistic damage effects.

Realistic Damage Simulation

For those seeking a realistic driving experience, the “Simulate Damage” option affects car performance post-damage. Enabling “Telemetry” displays detailed damage information for each vehicle part.

Overcoming Terrain Challenges

Handling Difficult Terrain

Disabling car damage does not prevent vehicles from getting stuck. Players can use the rewind feature or respawn to overcome terrain obstacles.

Respawn Over Rewind

While rewinding can sometimes cause loading screen issues, respawning places the car on nearby flat terrain, providing a more reliable solution.

Customizing Vehicle Appearance

Elevating Convertibles’ Look

Certain convertibles in Forza Horizon 5 allow players to lower the car roof, adding another layer of visual customization to the game’s arcade-style racing.

Crafting Custom Liveries and Designs

Players can create and share custom liveries and designs for their vehicles. This can range from simple color changes to complex artistic creations.

Sharing and Earning Through Liveries

Shared liveries can be downloaded by other players for free. However, the creator earns Credits and can receive likes, boosting their Kudos in the game.

Maintaining and enhancing car aesthetics in Forza Horizon 5 is an integral part of the gameplay experience. 

By disabling car damage, players can keep their vehicles in immaculate condition while traversing diverse terrains. 

Additionally, the game offers various customization options, from lowering convertible roofs to creating unique liveries, allowing players to personalize their vehicles further. 

These features, coupled with the ability to respawn and overcome challenging terrains, ensure that players can enjoy the visual appeal of their cars throughout their adventures in Forza Horizon 5.
