  • Re: F1 2017 - defending AI?

    I bet this will be difficult for Codies to get right, they can either make it so the AI defend like Hamilton/ Verstappen/ Vettel (who, IMO, defend very harshly) as people will complain of cars crashing into them on corners when they push us out wide or they can get the AI to defend more like Massa/ Perez (who, IMO, at least try to leave cars room on the track whilst defending well).

    For a casual gamer to come in and get squeezed out of corners like in real life, this would potentially put them off playing the game wouldn't it? Whereas the more experienced players would love it.

    It's as if we need an option in the game to control the 'harshness' of the AI's defending.

    It doesn't matter how harsh the ai drive's, a casual gamer that is faster, will always find a way past, because that is the challenge.  I have being f1 games since 2000, and I have never heard of any casual players, complaining about the ai being too aggressive or harsh. What you do hear is, the opposite statements like, the ai is too timid, or they are not aggressive enough, and this complaint comes is mainly from console users. The problem with cm ai, is not how they defend. The problem is, they don't do any defensive driving.



























































          

    You clearly weren't around when F12013 came out then as the forum literally exploded with the complaints about overaggressive AI because for me and many others it was one of 2013's biggest headaches.

    Wow, This looks really cool! I Also heard Lee say that if there's extreme rain, the safety car can come out, So we'll Probably see that in the "all wheater series".

    looking forward to This!
    This already exists in F1 2016.
    never have seen that in action...I think in F1 2016 you can only have a safety car when there is an accident.
    It does and can happen as I saw it in one of Aarava's vids once last year when he was hit by torrential rain in Malaysia the safety car came out then but it'll only happen likely if you get hit by rain like that though.

    This looks like it has more modes than any prior F1 games, adding considerably more variety & longevity/replayability. I wonder why CodeMasters isn't promoting it more. Sure, everybody always says their latest endeavor is "the best one yet," but this looks like it truly could actually be CM's best F1 game yet. If the media & random YouTubers are allowed to show so much information about the game, then I can't imagine CM would be under any restrictive gag orders to keep quiet about it. If I were CM, I'd be proudly showing it off every chance I got - and using much higher-quality video capture & rendering than some of these YouTubers do. :p

    Agreed I'm surprised they haven't already got the likes of Aarava and Ben already on it and do in their usual promo vids like they did last year on a preview build.Still maybe they have but they're not allowed to start doing it until a certain point. Perhaps next week given we're now only 3 weeks until lights out if you know what I mean. I watched quite a few of those last year and they were good to see.

    But yeah I agree I can see this one rivalling F1 2010 and 2012 as my favourite CM F1 game if it plays as good as it sounds in terms of it's features. F1 2016 was great and came close imo but not close enough this time CM may have just outdone themselves or at least their first games in the series


    I don't want to hear it from Aarava or Tiametmarduk or xMattyG or TRL Limitless or any other YouTubers.

    I want to hear it straight from the source - CodeMasters.


    I think you and I have already figured out though that CM prefer to work through youtuber's now Whether you think it's a good or bad thing is another matter but it seems that's the only way things are getting done now.

    I'm probably the only one but I hope next year they wait a lot longer with all the info. I have seen enough to be convinced, I pre-ordered and now i'm in the long wait for the game come out. I have seen more than I should have seen. I had the same issue last year too much video's and I had seen already most of the game before playing it. The long wait for release is killing me now. Maybe I should start being angry at Codemasters for allowing so much info to leak  :p
    I'm busy playing other games atm so that'll keep me going as I'm working my way through the Mass Effect trilogy. I was thinking of doing a run of ME Andromeda again after the trilogy but I think it might end up taking too long so might hold back on that Mind you after I'm finished that I might do some practice races on 2015 as I've got a championship mode underway on that that I want to finish as well. So I've got plenty to keep me busy until the game launches.
    Well I was playing Elite Dangerous which was rather addictive but since the new info I want to race in F1 2017. Don't want to touch F1 2016 anymore as I will be racing the same circuits in 3 weeks. I could play a lot of other games but when my mind is set on playing a game I want to play that and nothing else  :#
    I understand what you mean as I feel the same but we can't touch it until it drops so I'm just busying myself  in the meantime and keeping myself primed for when it does. But yeah I'm not touching 2016 now as it's too late to really do a proper career of that now as I've not got one underway which was why I was thinking 2015 as it is easy to just jump in do a few races and done which I suppose is one of 2015's advantages by not having a career mode.  Although personally I prefer the option of having a career mode than not being a SP guy. But this Fifa 18 and Battlefront 2 are the only other games left I'm looking forward to this year. As the first is already out in ME Andromeda and I've already done 4 playthrough's of that with another 2 planned. I was planning to do 1 straight after the trilogy but considering it usually takes me about 2 weeks to get through MEA from beginning to end I'll likely hold off until after I've done at least my first season of F1 2017 on career mode before I do that. I'll just do a few races on 2015 to fill the gap from finishing the trilogy till 2017's launch. That way at least I get a bit of practice in preparation
