    mirror in cockpit view of f1 2019, AGAIN?!

    Anyone heard of eyes? Haha. (Edit: I mean for what real life drivers use; not just all neck movement) Jokes aside, doesn't the look left/right literally look 90° left or right and so you don't see your mirror anyways? Also, if that is the solution being proposed, then why not just use the look back? Issue is for those who like realism and don't want the look back option to be used and want to use the mirrors. A 2D screen cannot do what real life drivers see and so virtual mirrors replicating what is seen in the mirrors would be good however where these would go on screen is beyond me. On the halo? Probably a distraction if anything. I guess I'd like to think that they could add in a look left/right 45° so people can use that instead of the 90° look. I don't know what would please everyone tbh.

    F1 2019 Pit Realise Lights

    I think the point here is your question has been answered with a more than reasonable solution that is now in game for cockpit cam so there's now surely no further issue.
  3. Yeah I do wonder why the pre-orders are pushed based on a non-informative trailer. 1 month (ish) to release and all we have is classic cars and F2. I for 1 need more info on the main gameplay modes for me - career mainly! The AI look good and aggressive in the videos released which is a big plus but for a game in production for 2 years and no major announcement to make about it as well the HUD seemingly not being what you guys are making it out to be is a little baffling - I don't count the Senna/Prost inclusion as major nor classic cars. Same old boring marketing for the game imo, sorry.

    F1 2019 GAMEPLAY

    Actually this is a good point. It would be nice to see if your crash then causes someone close behind to crash and then cause a safety car. The only issue I can see with this and the AI is that they are stupid enough to stay on their line and all behind just keep crashing into you a bit like them having no awareness of the safety car when it was trying to wait for the leader - they'd just crash into it rather than going around it. Also as there are no red flags (I assume) then what about Monaco or Baku or Singapore if you crash and lay blocking the track?

    F1 2019 Pit Realise Lights

    More than reasonable and better than having lights blocked by the halo! I like it.
  8. I'm sorry I don't see anywhere in that vid that shows anyone in that room against opponents. There only appears to be 2 drivers present in the top left and with no other car on track, I can only assume it's Time Trial again against a ghost time. I could be mistaken of course and if the HUD is not in this year's game again (non Spectator mode), that would be disappointing imo.
  9. That is Time Trial though isn't it? It could be different in a race perhaps?
  10. I do believe the graphics are finally coming to the game. I read an article on the game that Lee Mather shared on twitter and in there it mentioned about the graphics being there specially the fastest lap graphic you see on TV. I'll try and find it. Edit: here it is https://www.fullthrottlemedia.co.uk/article/f1-2019-preview Quote from the above article: "The HUD elements that display throughout races have been overhauled to mimic those as seen in real-world F1 races. These include on-screen indicators for penalties and fastest lap records, which are redesigned to match those from televised broadcasts. It’s a small, but notable improvement that truly makes you feel connected to your virtual Formula 1 race more than ever before."

    For League peeps, that League Attendance rating? Does that mean online leagues are in the game so no need for external web pages?
  12. LOL just LOL!! I would like to agree that as this game has been in the making for 2 years that they "know" what they are doing and all will be well but the evidence is already there in that the same bugs reside in every release for years. Why should this be any different? Isn't that the definition of insanity....or maybe the mind of a groupie where no matter what they do it's never bad? I think the proof is in the pudding and until I see reviews or comments on the forum stating there are no bugs after release, then I would remain sceptical if I were you!
  13. I agree in most part. People are so quick to overlook the issues of previous games because it's a new game and "I want, I want, I want" mentality. Yeah the marketing is good to lure these peeps in and make them forget but I tell you what...if this game has the bugs from the last 2 games, how anyone can trust them again is beside me. I mean this game has supposedly been in the making for the last 2 years according to Codies so they have 2 years of feedback regarding their previous 2 games (not mentioning all the hugs from ALL previous games that seem to always pop up) to get it right. For me, and I know Codies won't feel the same as they seem to have this hypnotized crowd who constantly throw their livelihood away for each new game, this is make or break to see if they really care about a solid game or not. I shall be waiting til later to purchase and see what the reviews are and bugs.
  14. No offence but classic content doesn't sell it for me. Looks good but yawn! More interested in this custom liveries, F2 and how it fits into career and seeing as you're harping on about rivalries, I'm really (and most of all) interested in how you implement the feelings, pressure etc of a true rivalry - driver to driver and team to team. Give me the sense of tension, determination, ups and downs, highs and lows and a hell of a lot of immersion. That is what I'm about, not classic rubbish!
  15. Love all the peeps trying to get brownie points commenting on this thread that they've signed up and trying to sway selection in their favour when it should be in the beta application comments 😂 Also how people are excited to be selected - likely 10% of these peeps are just yet again wanting to play it early rather than help the developers the locate bugs, improve handling etc. SMH!
