    F1 2020 BETA - Process Closed

    If someone is too lazy to even READ posts in the actual official beta application thread and actually admit it IN the thread itself then it probably doesn't bode well for their chances of acceptance... ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„

    Why no Custom weather for career?

    I prefer to have random weather myself for realism and a challenge but I'd love to have a slider where I could adjust the possibility of bad weather higher or lower. Turning it off completely seems like cheating but making it a 1/10 chance of appearing each session would be great odds for me. That means approx 2 wet races per season which is closer to real life. Also having the odds run before each session is more realistic because I'd never have to suffer rain in every single session again (very unlikely) as the odds of that would be 1/10 x 1/10 x1/10 x 1/10 x 1/10. 1/100000 ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Sponsors on Helmets (possible solution?)

    I'm just waiting for the inevitable F1 dance memes to start appearing followed by TikTok versions.. No I'm serious! Game needs a little more light hearted fun ๐Ÿ˜

    Good idea in a fantasy racing game like gran Turismo but in an officially licensed game that's the only way it ever works. You just can't have a yellow Ferrari with dancing frogs on it... Now if you're talking about the MY TEAM instance it's not so strict but those sponsors pay big money to be in the licensing. They won't accept 3rd party original designs at all. Especially when people make YouTube videos with them as it counts as denigrating f1s consumer image /profile.

    Invisible Halo Column Glitch

    Dang I wish I could get it to look like that when I'm actually racing! ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ˜

    About the logic in Unranked lobbies.

    Do you have a fever by any chance? ๐Ÿค” ๐Ÿ˜ As to what you pointed out you are completely forgetting that literal 5 year olds play the game and set up their own lobbies. Whereas personally I believe for the protection of children only people 13 and over should be able to create online meeting places with strangers I don't believe that rule is integrated into the game? Correct me if I'm wrong. I think THAT'S your problem mate. Kids don't spend 15 mins planning a lobby structure then implementing it perfectly from scratch. They kind of experiment and try random stuff out when and where they think of it with no thought to possible consequences. Bless 'em! ๐Ÿ™†๐Ÿ™๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ’ญ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜

    ERS Deployment - F1 2020

    But.. But... It's TWO FOR ONE!!? Think of all the time you will save. One button press to carry out TWO functions! Maybe if we're lucky the next step will be voice control with no buttons to press at all. Just say FAST or SLOW and ers, drs and fuel mix will all be set for us! ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‚
  10. Well it wasn't supported on all systems for the 2019 game, only the shifter was. Being fairly old though I can't see them adding it so was a legitimate concern I guess.

    ideas for f1 2022

    Just think lads and lasses, in 2022 this guy can post "cmon Codies I've been asking for this stuff for TWO YEARS NOW!". If that's what his plan is I can truly say that's some impressive forward thinking! ๐Ÿ’ญ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜‰

    Lee Mather Responds to Scanned Tracks

    To be fair here Dirt usually only has ONE car on screen at a time except for small races (6?). Having large realistic looking tracks and 20 different cars with all the ai running in the background is a much bigger system load. If you're talking VR for time trial only, that's different.

    F1 2020 BETA - Process Closed

    Are you talking about editing YouTube videos with 2020 footage as your own? It's not technically against YouTube policy IF the specific youtubers allow creative commons usage but they would likely be on strict instructions NOT to allow this for work in progress footage. Just DON'T do it basically. If you want to make a YouTube video with you just talking about your excitement about the new game from what you've heard that's different but don't use someone else's footage in the background. THEY have special permission to display certain aspects of the game and discuss them. YOU don't. I don't think it could be any clearer.

    F1 2020 Season Mods For F1 2019

    True I think it's fortunate that Codies don't play a heavy hand here for most of the time. Technically someone posting a doctored screen shot with suggestions for new official hud /gfx is modifying assets even if indirectly and there's a lot of that here! Is the game EULA here on the forums? I know it's on the official game page or at least I've read it there before. EDIT Yes the forum rules are indeed at the bottom of every page. Just looking for actual game EULA now. Forum rules : https://terms.codemasters.com/en F1 2019 EULA (2020 not online yet) https://www.formula1game.com/2019/eula

    F1 2020 Season Mods For F1 2019

    I don't personally believe that mods for a previous game affect sales for a new one. As long as they remain within the spirit of the original game design and therefore don't interfere with Codies vision. Mods such as this DO definitely increase the playing time of a previous game though. Be interesting to hear the official position though if there is one.

    Thanks for the update Barry. You are absolutely correct to say there are a LOT of add on info boards available for iracing. This is kind of central to the point in was trying to make though. Even if a sim gives users a fair amount of data by default, almost everyone looks for external solutions that will give them more. It's the difference between success and failure at the horst level. Agreed people don't race with the F1 games with anywhere near the same intensity as iracing, might it be just possible this is a actually BECAUSE what racers consider to be vital information to them is not available in a game /sim. It's the "if you build it they will come" scenario. Is it a possible solution to allow mod creators more access to telemetry and race data so people can use add-ons of the default game does not satisfy them? As you pointed again iracing people themselves use a lot of these. I do understand the difference between your business models. Iracing is less software oriented and more 'scene' focused. It's the races themselves that people buy into rather than a particular software release. The f1 games DO focus more on a game container release where a particular version number is important to keep as intended and assets need to be more highly secured. As I've said before I've never seen anyone complain seriously about having too many options as long as they are not the default and they have to wade through menus to turn them off. Discovering you CAN add more if you wish though is always exciting!

    ERS Deployment - F1 2020

    It is an indisputable fact that all modern F1 cars MUST use hybrid systems. They differ so hugely from traditional engines both in design and race strategy that it is a shame we cannot have the most obvious change of these engines, ERS , to not be a major part of the game also. This will be the 3rd iteration of the game that uses it yet we are still not much better off in this concern than F1 2017 plus nitro boost. Once again, these cars are ALL about the hybrid..but the games are not. With all the other strategies we can tinker with behind the scenes and during set up it's highly visible by its absence from setup. ERS deserves its OWN page in car setup one day hopefully. Casuals can just ignore it, let the rest of us spend hours tweaking settings and sharing them. Win/Win.

    Excited for new Broadcast presentation styles

    Maybe FOM REQUIRE Codies to use a different HUD to distinguish game videos from race videos? It almost seems intentional, an easy change to make for realism, not carried out. I'm sure there is a good reason, although whatever it is it will always be annoying not to have accuracy. YouTube F1 game videos already get taken down for looking the way they do now. I sense a committee decision sadly.

    There is another thread with many answers and questions within not far above this one if you want more info!

    What position will you come out after pitting?

    Surely it would work best for everyone if we could just rearrange the mfd to our own preferences? Especially regarding what's on the first page!
  21. Sorry I'm gonna be cheeky and point out the irony I see here. So....the people who only use tcam, which is undoubtedly a fantasy view point that only spectators at home can see on the the telly, want to be reminded of this out of body experience by....seeing their own virtual helmet front and below their control method? That's like sitting in the back seat on a chair! I figured the new view was to HELP tcam users forget that they were using an unrealistic view by HIDING the obvious give away to the illusion. Their own head literally between their OWN legs! Sorry I just couldn't help that, I nearly wrote that earlier but it's been bugging me all day I just had to drop it in here. DISCLAIMER :I have no preference as to how this view is displayed as I never use it, so I will go and quietly leave this thread now! ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜œ

    Bazza mate, Have you ever seen an iracing race on twitch? That sim is like a spreadsheet with a window in the middle showing the track! There is a racer general opinion that you can never have TOO many stats! Of course you wouldn't force players to fill their screens with data, there would be a none, minimal, normal or full choice which you would set in preferences and then cycle through with an assigned button or key the same way we do views. In fact most of us only ever use one view so we'd instantly assign the view button to race info when we installed the game. I don't think you would find a single person who would say no I only want one view not a choice. You could also have AUTO FULL where if you turned that ON after every pass, or pit stop, or crash, or fastest lap, or retirement would put the full info page on screen for say 10 seconds. I know we might sound like an ungrateful bunch never being satisfied with new features you give us and always wanting more but... That's how together we all help to make the game better and better each year. Of course you KNOW that Bazza! You've just got beta lag right now and I totally understand that! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜

    Cool down laps for F1 2020

    I find it kind of relaxing to slow down after a long race, it's better than just losing the wheel when you're so tensed up? Please somebody think of us OLD people!, ๐Ÿ‘ต๐Ÿ˜œ. But yeh I turn it off for short races as it just gets in the way.. And yes I have run out of fuel in project cars on the cool down and it felt good just parking the car on the grass and waving to the fans for a minute ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿ˜‰

    No worries we quite like long comments here, especially after a lot of rather (insert word here!) short random ones! Feel free to tell us your knowledge and opinions. We are like hungry fish here, and we might fight with you for pieces of food but we won't eat you alive! ๐Ÿ˜‚

    No worries man, but you must be still fairly young if you think THAT was an essay. Just look at the VOLUMES some of us crusties write here and you'll see yours was fairly short! ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ˜‚
