ERS adjustment – “You can adjust the ers levels for each track, on the fly and also set defaults in practice”
Telemtry-“This can help detect wether where you are deploying the ers is correct and benfiting you enough and you are also recovering in the correct place. Some good examples would be what you can currently see which was me at china on f1 2013 just earlier on today!” ‘use f1 2013 footage’
Handling – “ The handling in pad was not great for this game, and also was one of the biggest wheel games since F1 2011, which was not good for their marketing scheme. I feel it needs to be closer between the two as this last year we lost one of the biggest memebrs of the pad community. Wheels are also expensive, and will cost more then what yo actually brought the game for. I would also like to see using no assits gives you a massive advantage over those who do use assits. Say just running off tc you will gain 3 tenths!
Wet= “ In the wet it would be good if you can start under the ssaftery car as we saw 3 times in the last season, at Monaco, Silverstone and brazil. Another good thing would be to make the spray more like what we saw at brazil and to also add more drops onto the camera make viability a lot worse espically when in cockpit cam.”
Helmtet cam = “This would be the ultimate experience and the closest realism to what it is is like to be adriver, with head movements that are very aggressive aswell as the restricted visbaility that the drivers, get.
Wheel = “We need more detail on the wheel such as the ers levels, telemetry, bb, pit info, weather info, sensors and so on. This would add massively to the reaslim levels and would also make it look less like a game and more like real life.
Carbon fibre shatters = “Something that I think would be noice to see is the carbon fibre shattering as it does in real life, as this again adds to the realism level but also makes the crashes a lot more sprectacular.
Debris gives punctures = “Leading on from that, it could mean that it is possible to get punctures or damage from debris as in real life and it would be cool to see marhals on track clearing it up!”
Car crane = “Furthermore this can lead to even more possibilities like cars being lifted off the circuits by cranes and this would just make the game awesomely realistic and would gain soo much more attention.
Fuly manual pit lane = “ As we saw in f1 2010 it is possible for codemasters to make control in the pit lane completely manual, and this would be great to see as you can then muck up your pit stops. However to include all of these 3d animations and characters animations would probably require an additional game engine, because as we saw with f1 2016 the ego engine is not the best for character animations, however it is possible but very unlikely. And it is also very unlikely that they will be able to sucesfully encoporate 2 engines.
COD theatere esque = “ It would be nice to see a free camera similar to the Call of Duty’s thatre mode as it would be great for contenet producers like me, who enjoy having fun with visuals and editing montages, and also for things like my driver it would create endless possibilities for the incredibly inventive mind of aarava!”
Cs-go esque ranking = “Another game they could take inspiration from is cs-go and the competitive rnanking system, as this works ofr the most part very well and would be very benifical to see who is better, and may also urge those like to play online more as I am actually achieving something.
New engineer = “After 2 yars Jef has become a bit borinig, and we have never had an engineer with real character, like in f1 2010 and I feel like we need it back, maybe using someone like Rob Smedly engineer or alonso’s engineer from 2012 for other countries.
Longer screen after crash = “A big bug bare of mine has been that the replay screen after a crash has never rested for long enough. And we need to see it continue for longer. And also to fix the issue of your dirver getting out of his car in the paddock, and out of a car that has no damage!”
Menu screen = “The menu screen has been around since f1 2012 and needs a revamp as I find it very boring to look at.
Game music =”I also feel like we need some better menu music as ever since f1 2013 I have muted menu music as I find it frankly depressing, f1 2011 has by far the best music out of every game, and I feel we need some of this back, as the song “clement - marfo” Made me want to play the game just so I could hear that song at the end of career mode, and it also did this more nay other people aswell.Interactive= “ I think we need a more interactive feel with the car, as the drivers such as vettel get attached to their car, and I think you need to feel attached to the car to really care about not damaging you car!” DLC/Classic modes = “I feel we need to have DLC back in the game m,aybe form every era of formula one car, and some additi0onal tracks because I felel it would keep the game going for even longer, and so when the enithbaly do not make another game as great we have a newer game to go back to instead of one that is 4 years old!” Scenario mode = “This again would keep the game alive for longer, as it is something else to do rather than just race the game. I have always enjoyed these and have got really stuck in for every game that I have played. An improvement they could make is make scenario mode . Harder achievemtns = “Following on from this again I would like to see harder to earn achievements as they will again add a lot of play time for people like me who achievement hunt F1 games. I have 100% completed f1 2015 and 16 with ease and currently going through f1 2013 which is a bit more of a challenge than the newest games, however I think some thought actually needs to go into the achievements instead of them just trying to fill them in as best as possible with tt laps and so on. Team orders = “Team orders would add a whole lot of realism to the game and I will go into more depth in a future video about this topic!” Agrsssive AI: “ The ai this year were developed very well in terms of speed, however they were not aggressive enough on the lower difficulties and I think they need to be to improve the general fun and also just the racing in general.” Sense of speed = “I feel like the sense of speed for f1 2016 was very bad, you would be travelling at 240 mph and it would feel just normal, I think we need to feel when we’re going fast. Even a small amount of motion blur would help slightly!” Pit boards = “We had the in the last game which I was very glad about but they were too small and if not un readable, so in the next game maybe even displaying the board info, on the mfd but also using a wider range of info on the board instead of gaps which we can already see in the top left!” Stats = “I think we need to have stats, and they should cram as many as they can in there as it would be great to see my stats on f1 games as I feel like mine would be very good. I am also a kinda of stat nerd on games and I know a lot of people who also are, and I am sure almost anyone would atleast like to know how many races they have completed online races won and so on!” Gravel traps = “Something we have never seen in almost any game is the gravel trapping the car. Maybe there should be an option to choose wether this is turned on or off because I understand the in-practibility of this.” Pit stop mistakes = “Another thing I would like to see atleast in the single player mode is that the crew make mistakes in the pit stop which are visibile, so you can see the trying the spare wheel gun or something along those lines.” Race replays = “Finally, I would love to see the option to save race replays, so we can then also use the saved replays in the theatre mode, so this would be great for content creators again to make montages or just get great b-roll shots!” Getting more Press conference = “I would love to see a story line to career mode that you deicide and maybe with the feature of press conferences returning so we get to maybe start some of the in tot wolff’s words ‘psychological warfare’ which I think would be great. Also statements you make wil effect your chances of getting a contract offer, or even getting sacked from the team.” Young driver test = “Another feature that was in older games I would like to see is the young driver test, as it is in no way realistic racing for a team such as Mercedes or Ferrari in your first year a very small amount of drives have ever done this. Contract offers ; “Leading on form this I would like to see more realistic contract offers for maybe people who race for toro rosso get promoted to red bull. And also mid-season swaps are very rare and 2016 was a very rare occasion for a team and it was because a driver had in their opinion fucked up, however this topic is for another video. Also what we do throughout the season and what we say will effect if we get that top team seat that we wished for or not!” Pre-season testing – “Pre-season testing is something we would all like to see and it something that we have seen in the past they have been able to obtain a license to use the track Jerez so it is not impossible for this to happen! Reliabilty= “ I feel like braking down should not be player induced in career mode, and should happen more randomly maybe based on the engine manufacturer. But also relating to pre season testing it would be great to see the more laps you complete pre-season the more option you have in terms if upgrades but also better reliability on the car. Engine pens = “ Leading on from this there should be the engine points system that they irl that means that after 5 of each unit you have to take a penalty on the grid!” R+D = “R+D was a great start in f1 2016 and I am about state a new idea that would be an absolutely amazing improvement possible for f1 2018!. So first of all I would like to you earning less r+d points per race and they are harder to earn, and also there is a wider range of activities to do. Such as at Monaco you hold a mechanical grip test. Also it would be nice to see if you aren’t the engine supplying team your engine is not developable and you only receive improvements when the supplier makes them, unless you race for Mercedes, mlcaren, Renault or Ferrari and then in that case you can make engine upgrades yourself! I would also like to see say at engie supplier and team home races it is a one off deal to make an upgrade cheaper to do and Also quicker to develop. So if you develop a part at hour home race it will only take 1 or 2 races to be brought it however if you develop it at Brazil it will take 3-4 races depending on the development of the part. So also leading in it means that the more developed the car gets the harder it gets and more expensive it gets and longer it takes to make a component better. So say in s2 it takes 3 races in s10 it could take a whole season.” Upgrades make graphical changes= “When we upgrade the car I would like to see the actual changes to the car, like simple things such as extra wing elements or an improved diffuser, and so on. As for the whole part it does not change the car massively and I feel FOM and the teams could allow this! “ Budget = “For teams such as sauber wo can barley afford to go racing, upgrades will be a lot rarer to make however cheaper but of less quality. Lower teams = “For lower teams such as sauber, they may find a loop whole in the rules which say gains them up to 4 seconds a lap making them a top running team, however after 1 season other teams catch onto this so they return to being worse however maybe a 6th place team instead of 10th.” Character models = “Last year we did not see much in terms of character customization , and if we are going to get to see more of our character without the helmet on I would like to see the option to customize his face, maybe elder scrolls or sims esque to make it feel more like that it is our character and we are there!” Female charcter models: “Last year we saw no female character models which I feel was not great, and I think for the next game we should have the option to play as a female because despite there not being an actual female who races irl, that does not mean a female would not play the game. Like the f1 games community manager is femals for gods sake. Team interaction = “ In f1 2016 we had a team around us who cam over to our desk and spoke to us however something I would like to see is that we have speak to them more out of our choice and we discus r+d options before a race so in the ravce weekend we can actually research that specific component, and that we speak to emma more about our answer choices, and our performance and our career plans. Maybe asking her to try and find us a better contract. Another one would be to discuss all of this aswell with the team boss, and we get the choice to also announce our departure.” Pay = “Leading on from that I think it would be cool to see contracts that pay higher such as saw in 2010, and it would be nice to see a leaderboard of who has been payed the most in their career mode and maybe to make it fair if you take part in a full race weekend with 100% races you get a higher wage then not. XP- “Online xp would be very good, as it would give an incentive to players such as me, who get bored very quickly to play online more, so I can reach a higher level. Aswell as the cs-goi online rankling system I mentioned before, check that video out in the top right!” TT= “Again as I mentioned before Iwould like to se more in detail tt leaderbaprds lap as if we have the ability to change ers deployment and so on I think it would be almost necessary!” Eqaul cars = “ In the past years people have said equal cars have never been equal and I feel the same, maybe it is just mind over matter however I would like to know that they are equal and say all use the stats of the Mercedes to make it 100% fair, and also all the cars feel the same which they tend no to right now!” CO-OP: “now this is a big one a lot of people want it back and so do I. However I would like to see co-op as we have never seen it before like a career mode with 10 or more seasons, r+d, team changes and so on.” XB Custom list – “This is an obvious one everyone wants it, and it really needs to happen” Online replay – “ Again everyone wants this and again it is great for content creators hwoever this will ahave to be saveab;le so you can move onto the next race!” Yellow flag glitch – “Simply fix it” Ping level = “Many games do this and it be nice to know who is going to be laggy and who is not, aswell as you can contantly see your ping and for someone like me who tends to have unstable connection that is a must.” Mini games: “ This would just be awesome, doing online challenges suchg as 1 gear challenge, dry tires on a wet track and vice versa, no ers, it would just be amazing if you could make it happen in the settings so no once can muck it up for the whole lobby. Obvious – “With f1 2016 getting more sales than 2015 and codies new marketing scheme seemingly working I think it is about time we get dedicated servers or atleast better netcode because we see people disconnecting, who will be still perfectly fine in a skype call or xbox live party, so I feel after being around playing f1 games for the last 7 years I think we need to see a massive improvement.”
