    FINALLY, GRID 2019!

    So....what’s with this getting points for airtime etc? That’s very disappointing to see. Grid isn’t supposed to be Forza Horizon. Guess I’ll check my expectations until it releases.

    Season 2 Info, will there be a season 3

    Nope, in Aus (my memory could be failing me) I'm pretty sure the deluxe add-on only, was around $40AUD. Which is a fair bit less than $40 USD. I got the base game for $40AUD. EDIT: just checked and the original price of the deluxe dlc was $40.95 AUD, it's now on sale for $27.95 AUD. The base game on PSN in Australia is currently $99. I don't mind paying for new content. Take DriveClub, I absolutely loved all the dlc in that game. GT sport, same.

    F12019 Frame Rate on consoles

    The recommended specs for PC between 2018 and 2019 jumped considerably. To the point where I've got serious reservations about what us console users will actually get as a final product. With the minimum specs....lets take a look. 8gb of RAM....... all consoles have this i3 2130 cpu......... the mobile cpus in consoles aren't even close. Obviously there are efficiencies with the way consoles are made to bring it closer.....maybe/hopefully. GTX640 GPU......... equivalent GPU for PS4 = Radeon HD 7850, Xbox 1S = Radeon HD 7790 ........so consoles meet this spec. I could be wrong as I'm no PC genius, but I though the frame rate was dependent on the cpu more than a GPU (someone with more knowledge please chime in). If this is the case, frame rates would be a valid concern on the consoles given what we've seen of the min PC specs. Again I could be waaay off the mark here.

    mirror in cockpit view of f1 2019, AGAIN?!

    I drive cokpit with a realistic FOV so I can't see my mirrors. Well I can on the approach to a corner as I'm using the max 'look to apex' option so the driver moves his head left or right looking into the corner. But I never use them as I'm more concerned about cornering at that point in time than who is behind me. So I use the proximity arrows and look back to know where people are before they get too close. Works well. I'm no super duper fast, but I do alright, often gold in multi until some **** punts me off the road.

    Season 2 Info, will there be a season 3

    I bought Dirt Rally 2.0 for quite cheap and bought the deluxe dlc straight away.......probably ended paying the same amount as the base game upon release. I'll be honest I didn't do a lot of research about it before hand. I did the transactions based on the awesomeness of DR1. So I just realised as I read this thread that my deluxe edition.....only includes Season 1&2. Wait what? I've been conditioned into thinking a deluxe edition of any game includes ALL the future dlc. Obviously I was wrong. Oh well, I have little to no interest in Rx so it just means I've paid $40 for Sweden, Germany, Monte Carlo and Wales.....so $10 a stage. If possible I won't buy season3 and 4 and opt to buy just the rally stages. On that note though, what would people be willing to pay for a new unique rally location? Not something re-hashed from DR1, but totally new. I'd say I'd pay $10 (Aud) for that as future dlc. Personally I'd love to be playing this game in 2 years time with a constant drip of new rally stages. Dreaming I know.

    ffb fixed, some comms from devs

    Just had a couple of hours to get used to it. Codies have fixed I think pretty much all complaints I had with the FFB. Many thanks. Now I can have a strong SAT without it drowning out the effects. Going over consecutive bumps in Argentina confirms the feeling in the wheel aligns with what my car is doing. A bonus is I've instantly become faster. I'm happy. Time to get back to it.

    F1 2019 Legends Edition in Australia?

    I'm in Qld too and no one around me (EB/JB/Harveys/Big W etc) have the legendary edition for pre-order. Most confirmed to only getting the anniversary edition in, the others were unsure. If the Legendary edition isn't sold in some countries or on the PSN, do we assume the Senna V Prost stuff will be available as a dlc at some point? Can order it online I guess.

    F1 2019 Legends Edition in Australia?

    No doubt EB Games will charge $139.95 AUD for the legends edition if they end up having it. Especially if no one else does. So the Legend edition is the same as the anniversary edition but with a Senna/Prost DLC?
  10. Honestly, this is good news. The front wing didn't really have a purpose in more than half the tracks this last year.

    Track models in F1 2019

    How the official F1 game, which has a thriving Esports scene doesn't have properly scanned tracks in this day and age is absolutely beyond me. Yes it's expensive, but other devs don't seem to have the issue. If Milestone can scan tracks for their MotoGP game, I'm 100% sure Codies should have no issue doing it for F1. Some of the tracks are terribly inaccurate.

    ffb fixed, some comms from devs

    Really good to get the detailed feedback from the devs in that thread. Much appreciated. Though it does say that the FFB is currently as it was intended by the developers. I find this a little hard to believe to be honest. I mean, did Codies really want me to turn down my SAT from the default 100 to 35 so I can feel something other than SAT? I don't think so.

    No snow/ice rally? In a hardcore rally game?

    Maybe F1 2019 will have Monaco, Spa and Silverstone as paid dlc too.

    Soon to be seen in F1 2019.

    Tack scanning?

    Will Codies ever go to the trouble of doing a physical scan of each track in the game? I feel, especially given the growth in the Esport side of things that it is a real shame some of the tracks are so far off. While I like additions like Senna and Prost, I would much much rather more realistic tracks.
