    Performance Patch coming soon?

    Yeah, season 1 and even two are okay, but once there is ultimate tyre upgrades. Almost every race should be a one stop, maybe season towards the end of season 3 and start of 4, otherwise it just ruins the experience in those later seasons.

    Performance Patch coming soon?

    Just a thought, does anybody agree that CM need to have a look at the AI strategies? Just watched Tiametmarduks Singapore race and he won after dropped to P22 and 25 seconds behind the leaders, in season 4 when most cars have nearly maxed chassis and tyre wear, because the AI did a two stop, from soft, to medium, to hard. I think it ruins the career mode experience in later season unless you race at 25% or 100%, 50% races give too many BS strategies. It’s really frustrating to race against.

    Team Orders in F1 games. (realsport101)

    That was quite an unlucky incident @Falstojudilofa. I appreciate your input and I think even a small addition would be a simple 'no race' command from / to the engineer to let him know that you do not want to overtake, this would stop the defensive driving from the teammate (Leclerc in this instance). I am not involved with computing coding and therefore will make no judgements on how difficult or easy a feature like this would be to implement but I am sure the developers have thought about it and for one reason or the other they have decided against it. I can only hope they look to introduce it in a future title.
  5. I was reading an article on realsport101 about the Renault career mode and I came across their idea of implementing team orders. "The best way to bring in a viable team orders system would be to add it to the long list of things you can radio into Jeff during a race. The main one will be requesting the #2 driver to move aside, but you could also request a different strategy option or tell your #2 to run long. These would bring a serious benefit to being a #1 driver somewhere and even make you seriously consider staying a #1 at McLaren over being a #2 at Ferrari, for example. There would also need to be penalties for being an insubordinate teammate. Maybe your pitstops would be a little slower, or the team would take an upgraded part away from you like we saw happen to Mark Webber at Red Bull. All of this would add to the realism of career mode, while you could remove the function for online races." (Click here to view article) It made me think about how much team orders would add when thinking about moving teams, would you be given a chance to win at Ferrari or Red Bull should you become their number two driver? I am sure the developers could add this as a on/off system in the game for those who wish to run such a system. I think Codemasters are making the right steps for F1 2020 and who knows, maybe they have implemented this feature for My Team but we are yet to get details on that. I hope this is something they are considering though. I've seen Paul Jeal mention before that they have many ideas such as a pre-season test but it just isn't time for that yet. There isn't much they can add to the base career mode except small improvements each year and I think team orders would be a subtle one that would add so much to the game. Please feel free to make your own comments and ways in which they could implement the feature.
  6. Hey guys! It is well documented that we would all like a 'classic F1 season' included in the game instead of all the 'classic cars' that in the harsh reality, are rarely used. Even this year, a sub standard game mode that had so much promise ( Senna vs Prost ) was introduced, I would be surprised if over 60% of the player base completed it, this is not aimed to dismantle CM, simply genuine feedback to improve the game. It is clear that the vocal group of F1 fans would love to see a full classic season, in my opinion, any season from 2006 and 2010 as these years were intense and a game is over a decade old or in some cases (2007 - 2009) not on 1st grade consoles. However, what are the possibilities of such a mode and how wold it effect the game? Personally, I do think CM have considered such a mode as it would significantly increase the hype and lifecycle of the game and we as fans have to understand that such a mode will inevitably raise the cost of production and therefore, the game. CM are not stupid, they are a brand, a company and it has investors to please and costs to cover, so anything that will better the game, they will always try to implement. However, I think this mode would take a year or maybe two to implement from the moment they decide to do it, as they need licenses, track scans, car modules need to be made and liveries designed. It is essentially an extra game within the game of release. It will take time and resources to implement. We must ask though, can CM be open and honest with us and either rule out this dream or admit it is under consideration. This topic will never disappear and a franchise owes it to the fans to be open and transparent about something so heavily spoken about, I believe we deserve to know if this dream can ever become a reality in the future and if it cannot ever be, please just say so, as we can stop asking about the topic and focus our feedback on other areas of the franchise. Any other opinions are welcome, please add anything you have to say. Please CM, do not ignore, A Loyal Fan of the F1 Game franchise. @BarryBL

    F1 2019 - Helmets

    Hey Codies, I think I speak for the whole player base when I say we really want an improvement in helmets for F1 2019. Personally, I feel the designs are actually okay and offer great variety, but can we please have the implication of sponsors of our team onto the helmet? It shocks me how our own driver number doesn't even appear on our helmets? I find it hard to believe that it will be hard add these to the helmets? Can you please comment on this matter and just let us know what to expect for F1 2019 in terms of helmets? It would be much appreciated
