    Wheel Transitioning Tips

    That's always the most exciting way for me. No assists at all but be sensible with the ai to start with. As soon as you get used to staying on track you can start raising that ai level pretty fast. The amount of power you have at your finger tips with no assists is awe inspiring!

    F1 career 2019 on F1 2020?

    Well yes it definitely would be preferable even if it were make believe changes. I've said before I'd love a game with a ten year career which actually ENDED in the latest season. That way we'd be racing real classic cars and tracks building our skills and experience until we reach present day for the ultimate final season. Then each year's game we'd move forward another year keeping your stats, or restart a new 10 year career if we preferred but obviously starting 1 year later than in the last game. I think that would be a mind blowing game but admittedly would require a ton of asset licenses and probably more resources than Codies have allocated currently for the game. Plus of course you could still just do the latest season as a one off championship OR start a new career in the the old way. So 2 x 10 year careers to choose from : Historical career starting in 2011 Or Traditional career starting present day. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Update kerbs in F1 2020

    I'm glad I awoke to see the PJ bashing was becoming more polite! Maybe someone could start a thread "PJ Tips"? Where everyone makes suggestions as to how to improve his skills or what they'd like to seek him try in the next hot lap demo? Also would you like to see another Zandfoort lap or wait till another track like Vietnam is available? Or ask him what his favorite circuit is and request that? I'm rather glad it's HIM in the spotlight not me! If it WAS me you'd see someone pushing to the limits for sure, but it would be MY limits not the cars! ๐Ÿš—๐Ÿ˜œ

    Update kerbs in F1 2020

    I'd have to differ from the because this wasnt intended to display anything but the new track which it did and fair comment/criticism has already been posted regarding this. We all know it was a media /publicity member of staff from the guys posts and never intended to represent game physics/handling etc. We are always asking for any info and media for the new game and before the beta has even arrived we have got just that. A light hearted early glimpse of a new track from an enthusiastic non dev member of staff. If Codies were ready to 'show off' major new features then they would have done that with either their best driver or a guest race driver. I feel (sorry) a little ashamed that we have been commenting at all on the drivers ability. I really hope this criticism does not discourage anyone from Codies from releasing other new track /car glimpses in the near future for fear of being belittled like this. I'm a pretty vocal critic of the games myself but I like to believe my voice is inherently positive. I also give credit where it's due. I think we should be tackling the ball NOT the man and thanking this staff member for giving us a real good look at the new track. Count this post as my own personal thank you for a first glimpse of the new track. Im looking forward to more for sure.

    F1 2020 - Engine Sounds

    Sounds good to me. A racing car engine should sound like what it is. A mass of over engineered metal parts bolted together around a continuous stream of barely controlled explosions. Highly flammable liquid is sprayed into that hellish metal couldren along with its favorite buddies, air and multiple sparks. The resultant cacophony is a chemical party gone wild screaming with almost uncontrollable power as it celebrates only inches behind your back. Vacuum cleaners need not turn up for the audition... ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    F1 2020 BETA - Process Closed

    You could maybe make the wait useful by trying to find a bug in F1 2019 that nobody has found before then tell Codies about it. If you DID find something new it would probably help with your beta application! DISCLAIMER!! I I'm not Codies staff so that is only conjecture sorry! ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    BIRD-CAM! You should include it as a preset I'm sure it would be very popular! (as made famous by PJT in all your favorite track showcases!)

    F1 2020 - Engine Sounds

    Good point! I had to remind sms that one car in pcars 2 had the engine mixed only through the left front speaker... It was very weird to drive.. Like I was leaning out the back seat window haha!

    LOL Mike I just agreed with you and you took it the wrong way! I'm old too btw ๐Ÿ‘ต๐Ÿ˜Ž I said there is no reason why you can't use (your) one EMAIL and (AND) use it for steam. I didn't say create a new one or use a different one! I'm sure by now you understand. ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Dropping from 100% to 50% Races

    I hear ya I have multiple commitments myself. It all comes down to quality vs quantity for me. As long as I'm enjoying the actual racing I don't really care if it never 'finishes'. After all I still have a whole year to play before the next game. Why not just stretch it out? Once you DO actually finish a career there is not much incentive to start all over so I don't mind stretching it out. Also makes each race a real event to look forward to if you can only manage one every week or 2. So yeh as long as you're actually enjoying the experience without feeling rushed then it's all good mate!

    F1 2019 etc

    No reason why you can't just use one email and use it for steam. It's probably just something simple but finding out WHAT that simple thing is takes time. Personally I have about 20 emails but I used to work in IT so it's easy for me to use forwarding to secure my info. Plus it's easier to trace WHO has sold my data and only takes minutes to just delete an email and replace it. Bye bye spam!

    F1 career 2019 on F1 2020?

    Yes it does feel kinda weird to do a new ten year career EVERY year whenever a new game comes out with no continuation. That's the yearly cycle release model though. Everything is disposable. Continuation would severely limit Codies' available options for developing improvements though so it's totally understandable.

    Dropping from 100% to 50% Races

    Since I went from 25 to 100 % I cannot imagine going back. My argument is that there is so much more strategy involved in the full race and more ways to change result around yet I still spent the exact amount of time racing. At first there is the excitement of different venues and advancing career fast but once you've seen all the tracks and then have to do them all again over and over I prefer just to relax and get involved in own race more. As long as I can do one race a day, usually practice and Qualy then a break then fresh for the race I'm fine. Comes down to if I'm enjoying myself I don't want it to stop! I saw the interlagos esport race and tbh I wish it had been full length. It flew by and kept me fascinated start to finish. It's also way easier imo to not get caught out by tire issues, takes quite a few laps of degradation before I have to pit so I can choose a good time to box. Now if it's raining the whole race that's different! I hate the rain.... โ˜”๐ŸŽ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‚

    Update kerbs in F1 2020

    I feel I have to make a comment here regarding criticism of the driver's skills doing these demo laps. The game isn't even in beta yet and Codies don't employ and current or past pro drivers. They produce the game for OTHERS to go fast with not themselves. At this stage I'm sure the game is still locked down on company servers with only staff having access and then only access to small builds for testing. I know the Zandfoort demo lap was made by someone in marketing and media (no need to actually name him!) Unlike the official reveal video which doesn't actually show any track action this one gives us a pretty good look at the track and is basically asking for criticism and suggestions on how to improve it. I'm sure Codies are used to multiple harsh comments on their coding ability by now (which is fair as it's a PRODUCT and not an individual) but I'm sure they did not expect anyone to criticize the actual driving of one of their staff! We get all we need, and we a great look at a car, a track and hear the audio. Surely that's enough for us to go on? We certainly have a chance to help Codies improve the track before release so let's concentrate on that maybe? Personally I don't want to make the chance of further demos appearing less likely because the poor team member assigned to make a demo might not feel confident we will accept his driving!

    Codemasters sim or Arcade?

    LOL back you basically agreed with me but hinted you did not?! I said all racing software had various degrees of sim accuracy, ie better or worse to us. You said they ALL model physics. Which IS simulation! And of COURSE the physics of every game differs in realism to other games. Unless they all copied the same model variation HAS to occur!! PHYSICS = SIMULATION DEFYING PHYSICS = GAME. We agree! I have to ask are you just trolling me? Because OK you did a good job if so, I totally fell for it! ๐Ÿ˜„
