    That depends on how much percentage is used.

    F1 2020 Features — Suggestions and Ideas

    New cutscenes. Get rid of all the old cutscenes. Make the drivers look more life like. Multiple HUD's to choose from An engineer that proposes set ups based on practice runs Multiple engineers to choose from preferably all with a different accent like an Italian or French accent. F1 manager gameplay

    Well first I wanna explain "god like". In Fifa you control 11 characters in a view like you get on television. It looks like a soccer match on TV with the only difference that you get to decide the outcome of the match like some god that controls when Messi scores. Formula 1 games are not like that you get in the cockpit of one of the cars and that is where you will stay the entire time on track. You don't get replays of an attack of another driver or stuff like you see on TV. you can't say it's logical that it has to look the same as on TV because that's not what we get on our screens in contrast to Fifa were you get to see what you would see on TV. So it is logical for a game like Fifa to look like a TV broadcast. What I need to see is the lap counter. I need to know who's in front and who's behind me and what types they run, the MSD and some indication of sector times. I also need the warnings. But I want it all to be as minimal as possible. I don't need them to have black backgrounds because to me that already is screen clutter. Make it translucent. I need as less distraction as possible but still get needed data. It's that simple. The whole TVBS BS has ruined that. Next time someone pitches an idea like that they should think twice

    Not really because after watching the new gameplay video's I feel forced to drive without the HUD. The new HUD elements codemasters used to please the TVBS fanboys are too big and look distracting. I need a HUD whilst racing but I don't want my screen to look like a pinball machine.

    You don't see the screen clutter? How illogical is that! Why would you need a team radio message display? The only one speaking to you is your engineer. You don't FaceTime with other drivers during the race but for some illogical reason there is a team radio message display that is used for tv viewers to know who the team radio message is from. Why oh why is that team radio message display in the image? And I think Codemasters messed up the HUD with all this oh-I-want-to-see-everything-the-same-like-on-tv-madness. The codemasters HUD is already becoming screen clutter. There is just no logical reason to have the same style as the TV broadcast. I heard comparisons with FIFA but in FIFA you actually get a view that is almost entirely the same as on TV. You are basically a supporter that can control his team. In F1 you are an individual driver you are not a viewer with godlike powers like in Fifa.

    No thank you please. They already messed up the HUD in F1 2019 to make it more TV Broadcast style and I don't like it all. Get rid of the tv broadcast style and focus on a decent HUD from a drivers perspective.

    I've seen a new video of aarava

    Well there is much to learn from the beta's and I can understand when people say nothing has changed. Is it that hard to make totally new cutscenes every year? They add some new bits every year but it makes the game look overall the same as 2017 and 2018. And yes the drivers look a bit nicer than last year and the year before that but they still look like a joke. Not sure anymore if I'm happy with the inclusion of F2. I wanted a new F1 game not a new F2 game. The work in progress looks underwhelming and does not convince me the end result will be pleasing enough. I suppose too much time was wasted on the TV Broadcast Style HUD

    Why does Codemasters leave the games unfinished?

    Oh yes because nowadays most games come bug free. Only Codemasters releases games with bugs. Switching to another company would eradicate all the bugs immediately. I wish people would stop saying they wish another company to make their F1 game. You are just looking for a new forum to complain to developers that they suck at their job and they should look at Codemasters because they knew how to make an F1 game. codemasters loves F1. Codemasters is a good fit for F1. Things could get way worse when a company takes over that has no experience in making formula 1 games; codemasters has 10 years of experience. You just don't throw that away because there are bugs. Every game has bugs and every developer that will make F1 games will launch a game with bugs. You know when you buy F1 games that you will invest every year in a new game just like when you play FIFA.

    I really don't get either why gamers want to see the same clutter as they see on TV. The TV broadcast style is made to make new viewers of the sport easier to follow the race. It's not made to make pilots get all the info they need; When technology finally reaches the point where drivers get a HUD projected on their visor that HUD will look nothing like the TVBS. It probably will look more like the codemasters HUD than the TVBS we see today. I wish someone on this forum that is good at graphics design and UI could make a HUD ideal for racers instead of tacking some graphics on the screen to make it look like you are spectating instead of racing Formula 1. I can understand you need more data on your screen but there are much better ways to get that info into a HUD than copying the same thing that is meant for new viewers who don't understand what is going on at the track just by looking at the cars I'm sure someone is going to complain that the logo from their TV network is missing in the right upper side

    but then I prefer a refreshed HUD with influences of the Broadcast TV style instead of that big chunk. There should be a much better way to get that information in a HUD that is more minimal en stylish instead of the TV graphics.

    Blind users of your F1 games

    Wow, that is so cool! How did you manage to learn the Russian track? Would a racing line with sound help? There is a visual racing line on the track that turns color on to indicate you need to break for the corners. I think it would be easy to add a tone to the colour that would make it easier to race blind on the circuits. Do you know how to use Twitter? You could direct your question to the the game director: Lee Mather. His twitter handle is @TheLeeMather Or maybe @Faya can direct your post to the developers.

    But is there no one that can make a stylish mock up of a HUD we have never seen before? Not what we see on TV, not what we see in the Codemasters series, not what we see in any other racing game. My biggest problem with the the TV broadcast style is that it is what we get on TV. It's just that. Aren't there more efficient and stylish ways to get the driver information and other data whilst not covering 1/3 of the screen? The people that designed the TV broadcast style are good but they are not the best in the world so anyone can improve on that. What I would like to see as HUD is a total new HUD that is F1 themed but is not an exact copy from what we see on TV. Let's call it another optional HUD. So you have classic (the original codemasters HUD), TV broadcast style (the one where you can't see anything of the track anymore, yes the popular one) and a real NEW F1 themed HUD. The Halo HUD for example has very nice design choices. And it is made to resemble a racing HUD. those graphics I like way much more than the normal UI used on TV
  13. BelgiumDude


    Every time I get to see mock ups of how people think the HUD should resemble the TV broadcast style I get as angry as the people demanding this to be in the game. Have you people ever heard of screen clutter? Why even have the car and the track in the image, There Is probably some more data that can fill the screen so we don't have to see the car and the track anymore. If we are doing our best to get on our screens exactly what we see on television, why not add some shots of the audience whilst you're driving. That will surely break the immersion. I could imagine using design choices of the broadcast style but just tacking on the same elements as we see on TV makes my stomach turn.

    F2 in Career Mode

    The quick fix would be to allow the creation of player created character in Championship mode.
