What are the most 5 anticipated "innovations" when we thinking about F1 2018 Codemasters games? What "new things" (we are not talking here about bugs fixing) are welcome with open arms? Please, make a short list for Codemasters F1 2018 team.
1) Offical F1/TV HUD. It should be obvious but still isn't. Make a full use of F1 licence. Of course still could be "codemaster" HUD but as a choice, not only one avaliable. It's huge improvement in category of immersion.
2) REPLAY MODE. Please again - add offical F1 graphic. Simple - like in GrandPrix 4. Let's the graphic shows the position, gap between drivers, tires in use, etc. Rather easy to involve. And add RACE CAMERA that will be following most key part of the race. Not only our car, but how others are figthing for position, colissions, drivers errors. Huge but rather easy to make step to better immersion.
3) NATURAL COLORS and TREES DESIGN. Now the coloros are to intensive. Make them more natural, now in some areas the track/trees etc looks to cartoonish. And trees on tracks like SPA looks like paper-cut.
4) What are You thinking about SHORT MOVIES, SOME PICTURES treating about current F1 teams and race tracks? Im my opinion it will be a nice add. Not "3DMAX" backgrounds when loading another session, but pictures from real F1 world with some TRIVIAS about GP/DRIVERS. And maybe some short movies in menu, when we are choosing our F1 team? Again better immersion, and full use of licence. Mix reality/game.
5) NEW INFORMATIONS FROM ENGINEER. Like when some of the rivals have puncture/collision/out of the track I want to now about this. Not just "out of the race", or "mechanical problem (and no info when the cars seems to be ok again). That's very important thing. And again, some of the main rivals had puncutre, and he is now driving superb race, attacking from the back. Please let me now about this JEFF. I should know, that maybe problem isn't the driver behind me, but 4-5 positions back. It's very important when we are talking about race strategy and driving.
This is my list. Please make this important topic for CODEMASTERS design team. Tell CODEMASTERS team what are the most important innovations for You when we thinking about F1 2018. Not fixing bugs (it's obvious) but rather 5 simple things, that are really imprant for You, and easy to bring on.
And sorry for my english!
