  1. What really drives me crazy is that if the AI is on a lap in practice or quali they will also act the exact same way too... even if they're drastically slower than the player. It's so dumb.
  2. The calander changes from year to year so it would be nice to rotate races on and off the calander from season to season and have different length championships. It would be nice to have a few historic tracks to choose from to rotate on as well! Running the same 'official' calander lineup every season gets boring especially when the calander frequently changes from year to year IRL.

    Career Mode Upgrade Suggestions

    First one is that the tyre temperature model is great but it becomes quite unbalanced when the car is fully upgraded. There should be some tyre temperature upgrades in the chassis to balance it out. Either in weight redistribution or reduction I think. It would be nice to not have to eventually turn the carcass temps off because the tracks eventually become impossible to not overheat the tyres on. Second suggestion has to do with regulation changes. It's actually far too easy to adapt to regulation changes and keep the car fully upgraded. In my opinion the player should be informed of regulation changes ahead of time... in some cases maybe even several seasons ahead of time. The end result of a regulation change would be a change to a new upgrade tree essentially. (Maybe even entirely different upgrades on each path in some cases to the new 'specs') So my thinking is that the player could then choose to focus resource points either on current regulations or focus development toward the new one. Would be a good way to jump the field in a later season if you develop a head start or you could find yourself losing ground because you spent all your points trying to stay ahead before the reg change took effect. Also the new regs should carry some kind of penalty to the various upgrade levels you do for downforce, sponsorship, simulator, ect. At the point of the career mode I'm at now there's basically nothing to do and having a career mode that's constantly in some form of flux could really go a long way toward keeping it fresh. Maybe even have various rule changes like motorsport manager has so it can be possible to run without DRS, safety cars, or even different qualifying or tyre rules. I dunno. I'm just thinking aloud in this last couple of lines. I definitely think presenting a scenario of this upgrade tree or that one as opposed spending half resource toward saving your progress is potentially a much better way to go though.
  4. My issue with the AI is that when they overtake they only move over on track exactly enough space that they need. If there's 10 extra feet of track space they will use none of it for safety. That ends up requiring perfect steering to avoid an accident. Overtake defense is generally spotty too. It's predictable but they box you into places where you basically need perfect cornering ability to avoid an accident. It's really annoying. Most people aren't capable of consistently steering perfectly. The AI should give a safety buffer and they just don't.

    If you don't know the horror of trying to run on a wet Abu Dhabi track in career mode then you're not getting rain as bad as you think!

    Pit Setup - Keep Current Tyres

    In F1 races you usually want to change tyres no matter what cause there's generally not a downside. In F2 races however you can literally be forced to make another stop because you might start on a compound that can go the entire race but then be forced onto a compound that can't because there is literally only one fresh tyre of that compound... at any rate it seems pretty ridiculous that the option to keep the same tyre in that situation isn't an option.

    Lock ups don't do enough!

    Actually implementing a lockup punishment system would give players who use anti lock brakes a massive advantage online. Also would give the AI one too because the player would tend to lock up far more often. (It's actually harder than you think to completely avoid lockups!)

    What is the Best f1 game ever

    F1 97/Championship Edition F1 Championship Edition (2006, PS3) F1 2013, 2017, 2020 Those are the strongest years IMO.

    Bad controller input lag

    I don't even know what to say in response to this seeing as I'm on the PS4 version of the game using a DS4... there's not really anything to do regarding hardware/firmware updates on those... I'm also sure a majority of players are using the analog stick to steer in their games. I don't. I use the D-Pad. It's entirely possible there's an issue with how steering works with that because it may well have been some time since that's even been tested. (I started playing racing games in the 80s and 90s and have never been able to get comfortable steering with an analog stick.) This bug report thing seems so... ugh to me since I think there's only one thing on it that hasn't actually been provided and isn't particularly relevant since it happens regardless of mode... but yeah I'll take a shot at this... A detailed description of the issue. Please include any error codes here. [Already done above] Platform [PS4] What version of the game you are using (Shown on the start screen in the bottom left corner of the screen) [Whatever the current version of the game is as of this writing. I think it's 1.15. It automatically updates to the latest version anyway.] Game-mode? [Usually happens in single player but I've seen it happen online too. I rarely play online though.] We need to be able to make your problem happen internally so we can fix the issue. Can you make the problem happen again? [It's intermittent and not particularly predictable so... I don't know? PS4 database rebuilding seems to help and obviously I try to minimize this problem as much as I can.] How do you make the problem happen? [Not sure how to answer this. It's an input lag issue from steering that's intermittent.] What troubleshooting have you attempted? Please always try to attempt to fix the issue [Database rebuilding on the PS4 which mitigates the issue somewhat. No idea why or how but the issue seems to eventually return regardless.] What peripherals are you are using (gamepad, wheel make & model etc) [DS4 controller.] Any screenshots or video of the issue? If the video is long, please include a timestamp for when the issue appears. [I'm just going to say no here.]

    Bad controller input lag

    Kind of disheartening that this got no response whatsoever. To update it still seems to be a thing even with the latest patch. PS4 database rebuilding tends to help but the problem ultimately returns eventually. I feel like this got patched out and then back in because there was a point in the middle of the game's lifecycle where I didn't have any issues but early and with the later patches? Absolutely a problem. I'm sure someone is bound to blame the controller itself but if it was a problem I would have issues with other games and I don't.
  11. This has been an issue to varying degrees for me pretty much since game release. What's going on? Can this be fixed? On PS4 with a 7200rpm 1tb HDD

    Ea sports it’s in the game

    If I was running a company and someone offered me 1.2 Billion dollars to buy me out I'd probably take it too.

    Ea sports it’s in the game

    Codemasters has definitely been moving toward microtransactions anyway so I actually don't think we're going to be worse off in that specific aspect just because the game is with EA now.

    Ea sports it’s in the game

    It's entirely possible that EA just leaves Codemasters to continue developing the game and simply offers support and increased resources. It's also entirely possible that they become heavy handed with it and ruin the series. Until we actually see the next release or two making a judgment is simply too early one way or another. Personally I could care less if online becomes some kind of ultimate team racer... especially if it comes alongside spec online races. Most of my investment in the series is with single player career mode.

    Ea sports it’s in the game

    Not that I'm overjoyed that the series is now in the hands of a conglomerate game company but I'm more optimistic than I would have been had 2K managed to wrangle it. EA at least has some past experience with the series and it's entirely possible that increased resources available to the codemasters development team could result in a better game. Could.
