    Frustrated New Player F1 2019

    Cool. I’ve seen quite a lot of people who got into it due to that series. I liked it way better than I was expecting. by the way, F1 has a streaming service (F1TV) as well. Its not exactly perfect, a bit buggy but has actually worked quite well for me this year. I think Canada has availability but only for race replays, not live, for about $40 for the season or something like that.

    Is anyone really enjoying THIS?

    I’m still on 1.04, disconnected to make sure the update didn’t go through because I saw some similar posts to yours regarding the AI. I can tell you I play on a difficulty that’s comparable, and on 1.04 the AI is the single best feature of the game in my opinion. Considerably better than F1 2018. It punishes divebombs by the player, and the AI constantly battle and overtake each other on the straights.

    Two questions: Have you been having this for a while or only since patch 1.05 update? What difficulty are you on? Thanks.

    It’s really a well researched post, but the above isn’t actually correct. The engine parts dont work the same as the gearbox. If you change the gearbox before six events completed: automatic penalty. the engine components can actually be switched freely, even between sessions during an event. Youll only get penalized when you order a new one beyond the 2 or 3 that you’re allowed to use. If you find yourself needing an additional engine part beyond the ones youre allowed, the best thing to do is just order an extra one of EVERYTHING in 1 go, incl gearbox. Youll get a massive penalty of 65 grid places, but since there are only 20 cars you’ll just start 20th. This way youll take the pain in 1 race only, instead of multiple penalties in multiple races. this is actually what teams regularly do in the real world as well!

    In the main career mode: On the vehicle management screen. Below you can find a picture of someone who already used a lot of parts throughout the season. On the top youll see the total average wear of all installed components (40% in this example) but more importantly: on the right youll see the individual component wear % (in this example the ICE is already at 59%, which is probably higher than what you want to use for Qualifying and race as it will be losing peformance) You can also find it in session in your MFD. Thats the little popup screen on the right side of your screen while driving.

    Well done. As a longtime series player you sometimes don’t notice how poorly everything is explained. In recent years they had instruction videos on each practice program but I don’t think those are there anymore. If I could give one tip: don’t expect to make your gearbox last the first 6 races. You’ll provably needs 2 or 3 gearbox durability upgrades before being able to do this. If it hits about 70% wear you may start missing gears temporarily. I usually change the gearbox as soon as this happens and deal with the penalty. Also, you can always order extra engine parts using the + sign (at a penalty of course), so there’s no danger of not completing the season. Another tip: It could be helpful to switch out to engine part #2 when each one hits about 50% and switch back to the old engine parts for free practice only. Have fun.

    Feedback and ideas for F1 2020

    Id like to see the drivers get a progressive skill rating for career mode, similar to other annual sports sims like FIFA, MLB the Show and NBA 2K, where AI skill is bases on a few variables (like outright speed, consistency, wet weather skill etc). Combined with a ‘potential’ grade base on age and potential this could give a more dynamic grid.

    X Files! Cockpit vs TV Pod :D

    You’re absolutely, 100% right. I got baited into an argument that ended up completely negating my whole point that people should play the game in whichever way they want to play it. Totally unneccessary on my part.

    X Files! Cockpit vs TV Pod :D

    Yes I can, but no I won’t. It’s more than enough for me to know that, everytime I see you belittle someone or insinuate to your own greatness out here, you’re not as good as you think you are. And now I’m done with ya.

    X Files! Cockpit vs TV Pod :D

    What I’m saying is that you’re so overconfident that you started trashtalking someone about their skill level without even thinking for a second they might actually be better at the game than you are. Not your smartest move.

    F2 and Devon Butler in F1 2019

    I’m not really interested in beating Butler. He’s just another driver once career F1 starts... I’m thinking about restarting my career without them, but it would be a waste as I’m almost through season 1 on 100% distance...

    I know I shouldn’t do this bit I just can’t help myself: Cockpit cam(modified lower and closer for realism) No HUD or proximity arrows Virtual dash 104 average AI No assists (because I am MASTER) You were saying?

    F2 and Devon Butler in F1 2019

    I also feel like I missed the point of the prologue cutscenes as I liked Butler better than Weber. Devon’s a douche, but he’s an honest douche. Weber is just a snake who’s constantly trying to manipulate you. Or maybe I’m just a sociopath.

    Patch 1.05 and AI performance

    Yeah, seems about right. Make sure you do it at a ‘neutral’ AI track though. Some tracks are more difficult than others. Haven’t installed patch 1.05 yet so don’t know if it’s changed, but Melbourne is usually a good track thats in the middle of the AI range for me.

    F2 - how to start

    In F2 you need to go full throttle with revs and keep it floored when releasing the clutch.

    Patch 1.05 and AI performance

    Yeah I think Hamilton’s the strongest rated driver now. Not counting Weber of course.

    Yeah those supergeneric, genderneutral articles are really a breath of fresh air.

    Sure thing buddy, whatever makes you feel superior in your sad little life.

    Anyone else despise Monaco?

    I don’t think ‘greatest’ is decided by how many titles you have. ‘Best’, maybe.
  21. 3/3 ride height is too low in Spa. I'm not entirely sure but I think I run 4-6 there.

    Feedback and ideas for F1 2020

    Not a bad idea, but obviously won't happen. They'll manage to sell the game anyway so it makes no sense from a business perspective. Also, it's not unlikely that part of their license deal with F1 requires them to release a game every calendar year.

    [Patch 1.05] Weber way too fast

    It's true he's massively OP, but Bahrain is a power track and Racing Point are the quickest car in a straight line. The performance chart isn't an exact overview of team performance by the way, given that engine is more important than chassis or aero, something that the chart doesn't show.

    F1 2020 Holland edition

    So true. I once turned on the pre-race studio show one time and told my sister (who was watching with me) that they would somehow manage to drag Max into a story he had nothing to do with (about Massa I think) within the next 30 seconds. Took them 18 seconds. Not even kidding.

    X Files! Cockpit vs TV Pod :D

    Which track & car? Absolute nonsense this post. A net 5 second difference can only come from a terrible driver or someone who's 'fixing' their performance to try and prove a point.
