  1. Hi everyone, I'm delighted to announce that BETA is coming for F1 2021. See below for all of the important information for the BETA, what's coming and how to apply. Closing date for the applications is 10/05/2021, 2pm BST. What is a BETA Program: ‘Beta’ is a standard term to denote a milestone release during production in which game functionality is included and optimised (but may have bugs), game content is finished (but may have some implementation errors), and which is considered nearly complete. A key part of the BETA process is to report issues based on the objectives

  5. It won't bear any relation to the final game. It will be a pre-release build without final assets (normally liveries are missing, game art will be placeholder, cars are multiplayer cars with placeholder names), will have a small selection of tracks and game modes may be incomplete, restricted or missing entirely. It is to test and find errors in code. Participation is expected to be testing, observation and details on replication. A lot like we ask in the TA forums, you will be expected to complete a bug report with full diagnostic information. You will not be playing the game early

  6. Hi look I just wanted to say thank you to you CM I am really enjoying F1 2020, you guys get alot of flack on here , but there doesnt seem to be much praise , well Im enjoying the game ...alot..

  7. Hello, I feel like we need a 3rd corner cutting system, because regular is too forgiving, often you can cut or exdeed corners by ridiculous amounts, which makes it unavailable to use for any sort of somewhat competitive racing. With strict however, its a system that many people simply dislike and don't enjoy, because the tracks nowadays are build in a way where the intuitive racing line doesn't get definied by the white lines on track edges anymore, the intuitive line often goes off the track, which is a flaud by the track designers, but nothing the game can fix. Therefore I would l

  8. Dear @BarryBL, Over the last year a lot has changed within the community and the game itself, thanks to you. Friday-Racing has become a fixed and greatly appreciated constant in some of our weekly routines. During times like these, it has been something I’ve come to appreciate a lot and I am sure many of us enjoy the races just as much as I do. It is the good races that we remember the most and I would not want to miss any chance to make the next one the best race. Not always has everything been perfect, but let’s not dwell on the past and instead look to the future, for th

  12. Hi @Paradox53, Thanks for the post. To add some substance here, completing a F1 track for the game, in usual pre-COVID world circumstances, takes around (and sometimes) over a year to create, With implications and sanctions on travel etc, I can only assume this slows this down quite a lot. (Must stress I'm not a level designer here, or we'd all be in BIGGGGGG trouble 😛 ) Remember also, that the circuits when designed have to go through a number of stakeholders approval before entering the game. Our priority this year is to add the 3 new, approved circuits for the official 2021 c

  15. This isn't how it works. In poor countries 60£ are half of the monthly wage. My and your 60£ aren't the same 60£ of an indian or argentinian guy. This is why regional pricing exists, but we know at EA they are greedy *****

  16. (I just realized you guys were talking only about real life tires, oops! In any case, I'm going to leave this up in case anyone interested in the game's simulation of tires. If anything, you can use it to compare real life applications if you want) Ok! Finally got around to doing this post. First thing is, I'll be using RDA and motec to help illustrate what the grip changes look like. I'll be using a G-G diagram, which simply plots long G and lat G on a graph. In other words, it is the friction circle if you are familiar with that concept. TL;DR, any time you try to get out of this c

  20. my guess is you will find out in around 2 weeks similar to previous years, there is going to be a lot of applicants and time is needed to go through them all approve who ever is going to get in the beta etc once everything is in place Barry will post to say when codes etc are going to be sent also if you do get into the beta dont be that guy posting about it as this can antagonise people who dont manage to get selected, not everyone will get in and it usually ends up with people complaining or getting really mad about it

  22. Just a friendly to all those with F1 2020 - it's not too late to show your mettle on the Technical Assistance forums and familiarise yourself with the bug reporting process. We can see the type of responses that are not needed, sadly all too often. That said, there are some excellent reports that have directly led to issues being fixed. Also, if you can bug something in F1 2020 you will be a lot closer to ensuring it has the best chance of being fixed in F1 2021 during the patch cycle. To be the most effective, we need concise posting. Post when you are sure you have a replicabl

  23. It would be nice if we could change only our wing on pit stops and not have to change tires as well. I mean if u have pitted last lap and u are with 1% wear there is no point in changing tires again. If that could be implemented would be perfect. Also you could ask for the laser printed tracks from Formula 1 to be given to you so the tracks feel more realistic.

  29. In F1 2021 it would be great to have more control of your car, like: - Practice starts (at the end of the pitlane or after qualifying on the grid) - Drive in the pitlane (pitstops, weight bridge) - Drive to the grid (before the race & formation lap) - Drive after the race (victory lap, drive to park ferme) If someone has other ideas make sure to recommend them in the comments! @BarryBL

  32. Hey guys, I am fellow fan from Turkey. We had regional pricing in the past for Codemaster's games. I see that now its broken with F1 2021. Are you guys thinking about it again? With the current state of Turkey's economy many racers will not buy it with this price. 😟

  34. Can you please give the chance to choose to slip and play only with people using no assists on the next game? I play with gaming rig and I use no assists, but I am far from being a great player. It is very frustrating to always find so many players using assists on the same lobby as me. I would like to see people taking risks to go faster and spin, just like it happen to me. It is also quiet frustrating that when I get hit by someone with assists I immediately spin and he just continues straight. I just belive I would enjoy much more to play against people on the same level as me and also in t

  36. It needs to be done. I understand thay maybe FOM does not like the idea of cars being damaged and sponsors not seen, but in some form it has to be a way of getting rear wing damage. Not even mentioning sidepods, normally when you hit them they are a bit damaged, why does it not affect the cars pace? At least it should be in simulation mode! Rear wing could be damaged the same way its not even needed that it breaks down if its not possible, but at least to get damage.

  39. An open discussion about the state of a track under wet weather conditions in F1 games compared to reality. As we saw with the latest example of Imola, wet weather conditions are more profound than those shown in the official videogame. I drove several 100% races, started in wet up to dry conditions in F12020. I had to find out that the virtual weather system is poor. In F12020 the view is far too clear on a wet track, because there is not enough spray when you drive behind another car. Would be great to get more spray and realism on this point. I miss the unpredictable weather at

  42. if turkey had been announced two weeks ago, before the announcement of the game, we would also have had turkey circuit in the game (a bit like imola and portimao), Codemasters would have released a post launch patch with turkey circuit. Codemasters is very unfortunate with all this chaos of the tracks and the cancellation of the circuits that happens during the current season certainly does not help the codies. I offer you holy water to drink @BarryBL 😂😂

  43. Correct @pro3. We don't need the paragraph this year, as we needed this mostly to test the new accessibility features. Also, simplifying the BETA application experience was one of my goals for this time around.

  44. Hi everyone, Firstly, thanks for the enthusiasm with the new trailer release. With most discussion and requests at this stage, I can only comment on what's in the trailer or answer some questions from the text that came with it. I understand the passion for more detail, and we will be giving more and more detail the closer we get towards July 16. If I don't answer your question right now, I'm not ignoring you, its just more than likely I can't talk about it at this stage. As well as getting myself a one-way ticket to a LOT of trouble (understandably so 😛 ), speculating on a new relea

  45. Zandvoort and Paul Ricard at least had some laser scanned data used in their creation. The thing with track creation is that you use all the good data you have and have the tools to use. There are no tracks made with just laser scanning as you wouldn't even have textures or individual objects if you only use the data with no human mind or other data involved Most likely most new tracks will have at least some laser scan data used 🙂
