    F1 Calendar Update

    I think the game was originally programmed with the idea of the original F1 calendar in mind and that calendar was reflected in the in game calendar you see. That message appears to me to be a placeholder message that was intended to be replaced by the details of the actual F1 calendar as it ended up being, but just didn't get implemented in the end. Probably due to the fact they started the season with the calendar not confirmed.
  2. This is such a minor thing that I'm kind of embarrassed to say it, but I was thinking about this while doing a 100% race yesterday and it suddenly seemed quite counter-intuitive that tyre wear on the HUD is measured counting up from 0% at brand new to 100% when the tyres are totally, completely dead. I mean, of course it makes sense. But I was thinking it might be nice to have the option to invert this scale so that it shows tyre life counting down from 100% over time. I feel this might give a better indication of how much you can expect for your tyres in terms of lap times and performance. Given that it is the exact same scale as the existing tyre wear indicator, just reversed, it could even be an option between them, like how KM/H and MPH are, for example. Although I'm not a developer, so I don't know how easy that is! Just one incredibly minor idea.

    Will F1 2020 look better on PS5?

    Rather than agonising over any minor graphics boosts that could come through backwards compatibility on PS5 or XBOX Series S/X, we should just accept that F1 2020 is how it is and look forward to what we can get from a fully purpose-built next-gen entry for the series in the future that will take full advantage of the new hardware. This is a really ugly attitude I've seen from a minority of users on here and it needs calling out. Barry is CM staff, yes, but that doesn't mean he's some sort of butler who is obliged to respond to every thread about every minor gripe and suggestion. We're lucky that we have this space to express our views on the game with CM in good faith and get feedback and info from Barry and have him pass on our problems to developers for investigation. They don't have to give us this space to discuss the games. It's absolutely fine to have issues with the games and express concerns about the series or things you think could be better, but you should do it respectfully and you certainly shouldn't snap your fingers and demand that Barry come to give you an answer about everything. I hope you don't treat service staff in everyday life with that little respect too.
  4. Seems like this story is gaining traction in the media. TMZ have already picked up on it.

    This game is a joke. Anything to say code"masters"?

    Why is that Codemasters' fault? Surely that's an internet connection issue / Xbox Live problem? Especially as you say that only one player - someone streaming no less - was affected by it? Disconnects happen in every online game.

    Because - and this will be a shock - a lot of players aren't getting the Safety Car. Myself included. Exactly the same as in F1 2019 for me. The worst thing for me is that I had two Safety Cars in my first two MyTeam races, but then I started additional career modes to grind our Podium Pass XP and even since then I've had zero Safety Cars in 13 more races. It's a very weird quirk in the coding, I imagine.

    That's cool. Thank you for enlightening me!

    What does FOM cars mean

    Formula One Management - basically the parent organisation that 'owns' the sport. When they refer to 'FOM car', they mean the multiplayer/MyTeam car that was designed with oversight from FOM to make a generic car that would fit current F1 regulations.

    Just out of curiosity because I have no idea how it works, do you have get the patches on consoles 'approved' before they can be released? By the console manufacturers, I mean.

    Singapore - amazing!!!

    Well considering how many Olympic athletics champions are later retroactively disqualified for cheating... But yes I know what you mean. As someone who enjoys taking part in the Weekly Events and gets a very, very sad ego boost from what percentage I finish in, I totally get the competitiveness of them. But I suppose even with Weekly Events, you get players with massive scores. Either they're cheating, or there's been a glitch of some kind. But it's usually just a handful of players (literally less than five) so it's not really affecting the overall integrity of the competition that much. And, as I say, you can always just discard the illegitimate times and tell who is the actual leader.

    Singapore - amazing!!!

    Yeah, it would be better if those times were deleted, but I suppose this is a very low-priority issue compared to a lot of other elements in the game.

    Podium Pass Season 2

    This is pure speculation based on nothing, but I wonder if the delay for Season Two was in part due to getting the 'We Race as One' and the 'End Racism' stuff into the Podium Pass? I'd imagine they were not part of the original Season Two plans.

    Singapore - amazing!!!

    I mean, can't you just mentally disregard their time and consider thomaswiidbret's time as the world record instead? A lot of players get extremely riled up about leaderboard cheaters when it's often incredibly obvious what's a legitimate time and what isn't.

    Podium Pass Season 2

    Presumably once it hits 24 hours before the start, it will change from '1 Day' to '24 Hours'? So tomorrow. That's how it's worked with everything else. I mean, I think it's a little confusing to do it that way myself, but that's how it's worked for all the other countdowns so far.

    What do the color values mean?

    To convert from HSL to F1 2020: Take the Hue value for your colour and divide by 1.5 Take the Saturation and times by 2.4 Take the Luminance and times by 2.4 That should give you the closest equivalent colour in the game
