  • Re: Introduce Yourself

    My name is Katherine (Kat) I'm 27 and I work at a university in Australia. I raced Karts as a teenager, before a brief stint in Australian formula ford which I gave up to focus on study. Nowadays I drive a Honda Civic in the R2 class of the Australian Rally Championship as an amateur driver (with very limited success, I'm too cautious! But its so much fun).
    My first F1 game was last years F1 2016 by codemasters, before then I didn't have time for racing games.
    I don't play any games online given that people are not constrained by socially acceptable behaviour in an online environment. 
    I guess my favourite F1 game has to be 2016 as I haven't played any others, though 2017 does look impressive.
    My favourite driver is Daniel Ricciardo because he's quick, has killer overtaking moves and seems like such a nice guy. Am hoping to meet him at some stage. My favourite teams are Williams and McLaren as those are the teams I grew up supporting.
    Seems like you and me share that at least as I think those are my favourites as well especially Williams as most of my favourite drivers have driven for them. Have to admit I'm looking forward to racing my 2 favourite classics again in both Hill's and Mansell's cars. But then I'm looking forward to racing all of them at some point.
    I supported Williams mainly because my Dad did, he was a fan during the glory days, for me Williams were a spent force when I was old enough to understand properly. I can just remember Hakkinen and his two titles for McLaren but really I was a Hamilton supporter i the 2000s. I wasn't allowed to be a ferrari fan or to like schumacher :p Apparently I went to the Adelaide GPs with my Dad though I have no specific memories of them other then loud noises LOL Theres a photo somewhere of me as a 4 year old in a way too big Nigel Mansell shirt sitting on my Dads shoulders with a car (blur) in the background. 
    yeah I was never really a fan of Schumacher my brother liked him but he just felt a bit too arrogant for my tastes. I respect him as a driver though as he was good at what he did. I'm not sure if it's a German trait or what given Vettel kind of feels the same way to me. But either way just like with Schumacher Ferrari do seem to be finding their feet more with him in the team. So getting him in the car looks like it's turned out to be a good move.
  • Re: AI Difficulty by circuit

    Hey guys,

    Now that we have a difficulty slider, what are the tracks you consider the hardest ones in terms of AI? For example, Australia seems to be one of the tougher ones. I remember topics like this back ago for previous F1 titles.

    Cheers
    Personaly I would say Monaco so far. Don't know what kind of fuel AI is using there but with the same difficulty i'm far behind in sector 3!

    yeah Monaco I would asy as well as they totally blitzed me in my career mode race there finished the race 2 laps down even though I've got a prett ydecent car underneath me and am usually near the front fighting for podiums and wins. Going to have to drop the difficulty level down when I race there again.

    Why can't the wear and tear on parts be dynamic and not lap based?  Because of this, race distance scaling does not work properly and the wear feels too artificial at any distance.  I can not see CM fixing this issue because it seems like a design flaw in the foundation of the game.  It's not a game breaking issue but in the future, Codemasters, don't try and pull a quick one on us.  Soon enough, people will be on season 5-6 out of 10 and this forum will get flooded with complaints.  My friend is already on season 9 and I'm not going to spoil it for everyone....Note to CM, start cleaning up the forum...it will get messy soon.
    it already is messy

    Well a long with being quick in the wet during qualifying, I was quick in the race. I got my first points finishing 9th and Alonso came 10th :D
    Alonso must be delighted he's probably almost forgotten what it feels like to score points :p

    thought you might appreciate this vid @Hughesy as it's quite funny what Ben did regardin the fact he's driving for McLaren like yourself.
