    Rear Lights still not fixed in F1 2020?

    I don’t think they are random, but the rate at which they blink is not like real life.

    Rear Lights still not fixed in F1 2020?

    Same issue last year, on release the rear lights were not working on PS4 Pro. They fixed it fairly quickly though so hopefully CM will sort it quickly this year too. One thing I noticed in F1 2019 is that the rear lights do not work for practically all of lap 1, must be the way ers is coded in the game.

    Lighting and shadows downgrade on foliage

    I must be blind because I cannot see a downgrade. But I have read so many people mentioning about a graphics downgrade so perhaps it’s true.

    Weber and Butler

    It’s Championship mode all the way for me.

    New Williams livery F1 2020

    Gorgeous new livery!
  6. This is why I don’t race against humans. It will never change, a large slice of the player population will always act like this. In single player the ai is already superior to race against than many human players In multiplayer and the ai will keep improving, unfortunately a sizeable portion of the player base never will. We will still be talking about bad behaviour by others in 10 years time.

    F1 2019 Grand Prix Car Performance Equal

    I would only agree if it’s an option because I play Grand Prix mode exclusively and would be absolutely furious if Codemasters equalised car performance by default. For me the whole point of driving cars other than the top three is fighting for those low to midfield places. A hard fought 6th place in a midfield team is as gratifying to me as a win in a Mercedes, Ferrari or a Red Bull. Winning Grand Prix In a 2019 Williams would be utterly ridiculous and totally lacking in immersion for me. Seeing the results at the end of a race with Alfa’s and Williams and Haas’ in the top race positions would be so immersion breaking that we might as well be racing Mario Kart. If Codemasters equalised the car performance in single player by default they would lose me as a customer.

    Codemasters sim or Arcade?

    iRacing is not realistic! Real life indycar drivers have been very critical if it, as well as many others.

    Dropping from 100% to 50% Races

    Perhaps you would like championship mode? That's what I'm going to do when I've finished with my first season in career mode in F12017 (just 5 races to go). In fact my intention is to do the following in Championship mode in F12019- F2 2018 season (have completed the first race at Bahrain), F2 2019 season, F1 2019 season and maybe a Classic F1 Cars custom season. As for race distance I'm at 50% and will probably stick with that because I'm already spending 3-4 hours per Grand Prix weekend (including watching the replay which I will NEVER stop doing, I absolutely love watching my replays in racing games!). Im sure I will dabble with 100% occasionally thanks to some of the previous comments recommending it.

    What's your favourite F1 Track

    My favourite tracks are Bahrain and Malaysia (sadly no longer part of the F1 calendar) and my favourite turn is #8 at Istanbul which is the quad apex left hander (another GP sadly no longer raced in F1) which is so enjoyable it almost promotes the track into my favourites.

    List your 5 most recent enjoyed racing games

    I play Dirt Rally 2 on a controller, it’s absolutely fine though I had to do some tweaking in the settings for it to handle to my liking on tarmac. I had to do the same on the original too.
  12. I saw that video, and also read that Scott Dixon didn’t think the IndyCar felt real at all. I doubt that any sim/game is very realistic, they all just vary in their lack of realism in different ways. I think they are more a virtual nod to their real life counterpart, they do some things quite well but not others. I don’t really mind, I have a great time on them anyway. I get a buzz piloting a virtual F1 car about some of the worlds most iconic tracks and corners and I have literally whooped with delight in some of them. Any game that can bring out the smiles and those types of emotions while I’m sitting on the couch playing is a winner. For me it’s about the fun and the challenge. Thank-you to Codemasters F1 games for those moments I have experienced. I always loved the triple left hander at the Turkish Grand Prix that was in previous iterations of the CM F1 series always looked forward to that one. Such a shame that track was dropped from the calendar but there are so many others to be enjoyed. I hope the producers of racing games keep striving for more realism though, and that we always have improvements in the physics and handling as the years go by.
  13. With the amount of real life pro drivers sim racing atm due to no irl racing happening, it is not just CM F1 games handling and physics being criticised. There are real life IndyCar drivers who are just as critical of iRacings lack of realism too.

    F1 2020 game release date

    No, I don’t want equal car performance in any of the single player modes where we race against the ai. I have only just purchased F12019 and for the first time in a CM F1 game I am intending to ignore career mode and spend all my time in Season Mode and Grand Prix mode. I definitely do not want my experience in these modes to be tainted by a hobbling of the ai to equal car performance in this or any other F1 title. For those that want to be able to win in a backmarker or midfield car the option is already there to customise the experience to enable this via the ai difficulty slider. Personally, if I choose to race in one of those cars I want to be fighting for places at the rear or middle of the field. To me this can be just as satisfying as winning.

    F1 2020 game release date

    There has been some talk about equal car performance in single player, as an exclusively offline player in CM F1 games I have three responses... NO, NO, NO!!!
