Hi @Omg9999087

 

While I can understand the frustration that comes when you receive a duplicate prize car, I think we should try to keep things in perspective.

 

There's around 165 cars in the game at the moment.

According to my Life Log I won over 40 cars doing the Campaign.

So we have about 120 left.

Earning 1 car a day (for almost little more than logging in) without duplicates means I would have every car in the game in around 4 months without having to spend a single Credit.

 

And let's face it, all it is is an incentive for you to play the game each day.

The random selection makes it a bit of fun.

And it isn't exactly a major task to earn a car for simply driving 26 miles (42 km's).

 

We all get duplicates.

But I bet all of us have also received many cars we didn't already own.

 

So sure, it can be disappointing, but it's a design choice by the developers, and it certainly isn't a "bug".

Hi Tassie_tiger

 

A gift cas is all well and good but like me and NOZonline are saying give us the opportunity to sell a gift car its pointless having given a gift car if its Duplicated in your garage unwanted un needed we put the time in to do the miles why should we get a car we already brought or paid for purchasing Digital Deluxue or other bonus pre order versions.

All those Special Editions have done was entitle you to access to a range of cars a bit earlier than people with the Standard Edition.

 

You don't have any other special privileges in the way of Gift Cars.

 

 

I saved money and got a cracking deal on my Game.   A super low price and the Chrome Helmet, some credits etc....    I didn't need the cars as I knew we could build the garage up on a Daily basis.    Kinda made sense not to spend money on cars when I'd eventually get them for FREE.

There is no Gift car bug regarding this. Suggest reading manual. We get a random car's; as this is random is normal and expected that we can get a duplicate one.

 

You can use the duplicates to have different settings for them if you want and/or have different livery applied.

 

From Manual: "Drive the distance of a marathon (26.21 miles / 42.195km) in races or events over the course of a single day and you will win a randomly selected car as a gift."

I concur with the Posts mentioned....   Not a Bug!

 

Just a random Gift....   

 

The problem here is.... you wanted the extra cars to begin with..  that's your choice..   the more cars you have, the more chances of duplicating.

Do you really think so?

I'm not so sure.

 

I mean, how many credits do you think you deserve for driving 26 miles - in a driving game?

Credits don't seem overly difficult to earn anyway.

 

The way we are talking we may as well just ditch the whole Credit system.

Or maybe go for the sand-box approach and have all cars instantly available.

 

 

Spend Mileage points and upgrade one of them.

Or use different liveries for multiple models in scape photos.

They aren't entirely useless.

I’m thinking salesman pricing, I would sooner get a little cash rather than just delete them.

When they introduce the classic cars I see them being very expensive, so mo money mo goodness!

From what I see, the cars get sorted by last use or other means. It's not as if having duplicates is a burden, especially when earning credits is so quick and easy just by playing the sim.

As far as the daily driving target goes,  the amount of K's done before you get your bonus car should be multiplied by 10

Duplicate cars don’t really annoy me too much. As has been said before you can change the details in the livery editor and try out different settings with each version. However, I would like to announce the opening of my new Subaru dealership. I’ve had so many I can now offer discounts to all customers!
