Aircraft !

Lets hope 2018 sees those low flying airliners disappear. Virtually none are seen at GP's as depicted in the game so totally unrealistic and distracting I feel

    Would never have known they were in game till this thread, normally too focused on the race

    I don't think there is a need to remove it.

    I only noticed the shadow of one last weekend. I have no problem with it at all

    I never really thought about it but I guess it depends on track location. I've only seen them at china, I assume that track might be close to an airfield?

    It's distracting and I think that's the whole purpose for it to be in the game. See that in similar games as well. It should be removed because it doesn't add a single thing to the game.

    If you use ABS or Traction Control, you are no longer a racing driver.

    If I get a few more questions about my driving style I think I headbutt someone.

    Perhaps because i am an aviation enthusiast i notice them and get annoyed because you wouldn't see them at an actual race

    Yeah, get rid of the silly aircraft.

    I don’t have any problem with the aircraft I’m focused on the apex, they are most notable at China and Brazil, both circuits are near airports, and im sure that if you were at those GP’s in person you would see multiple aircraft per hour as São Paulo and Beging are very large cities, so I think it’s a great touch by Codemasters.

    Surely though due to the airspace being closed off for the camera helicopter and in case there is an emergency, you wouldn't see big aircraft flying over ?

    I have many more ideas for a better distraction  :D  >:)

    They should think about location relative to the tracks like mentioned above. Brazil and China are near airports so planes would make sense there. Also, take Monaco. I went to this years gp and there were helicopters everywhere out over the harbour and just off the coast! Another little touch of realism we might like...

    Well... As an Italian I'd love to see these kind of airplanes flying over the circuit

    They're the sort of planes I'd like to see but I think they already have something similar in the intor sequence anyway don't they?

    No, not really. I don't think they have any smoke on the circuit at all, not even the smoke on the grandstands coming from the crowds

    Wow exactly they should have the camera helicopter fly over during the sessions😱

    But the constant 'wap wap wap' of the rotors   is annoying at the GP so trust me you don't want it in the game
  • ChironTheseusChironTheseus Member Pit Crew
    At Abu Dhabi they fly overy ever lap the same places, I really don't see how they can be distracting though, I'd only want them gone if they affected performance quality, otherwise environmental additions are always a good plus.
