  1. Because you can't. Just do 'quick practice' instead or skip the three practice sessions by simulating to qualifying on the weekend schedule screen.
  2. I'm grateful to the devs for the patch. I know it can't be easy to do. I look forward to the continued ironing out of issues and improvements to the game as we go along.

    AI in the wet

    I think setup makes a big difference. I struggled in the wet in races, because I was using my main dry race setup. I tried a FP1 while running the default 'max downforce' setup and started going seconds a lap quicker than I had been with my personal dry setup.
  4. I have my AI level set between 95-97 with SC on increased and I have the exact same experience. I have had two SCs in my first eight races in MyTeam and the second one was in COTA where I was hit by the DSQ bug there.
  5. I think we need to accept that while the game continues to use the PS4-gen spec version of the EGO engine, it's never going to be fully optimised for next(current)-gen consoles. Now, you can totally be disappointed by that and dislike that - I think that's fair enough. But it's the reality of the state of the game for now. It's going to take a year or two until we see this series able to fully make the most of the new hardware capabilities.

    F1 vs AC

    Assetto Corsa is the most I've ever regretted spending money on a racing sim, sadly. It has its qualities - absolutely. But there's so much basic stuff it lacks compared to other sims that I take for granted. I think Kunos Simulazioni do a great job with limited tools, but when people hold it up like it's the gold standard but with the caveat that you need to install a bunch of mods to get it to where it's really good... that doesn't really say much for the quality of the base game. But what I especially dislike and find pretty disingenuous, is when people use modded AC to attac
  7. It was a weekly limited livery from a week ago. I think it was called 'Contours', or something similar.
  8. Finally got around to capturing my five designs. Each one belonging to fictional teams I've invented in my mind - except for one of them, which is a tribute to a certain Ridge Racer team...
  9. I don't think you fully grasp the concept of what 'unplayable' means.
  10. Thanks a lot! Do you have anywhere where we can donate something as a token of gratitude for your work?
  11. Just to check, you know you can start your MyTeam mode and you''ll be able to add Imola, Portimao and Jeddah to the calendar after they're patch in, don't you?
  12. I've had Jeff warn me about engine issues three times in eight races in MyTeam so far - one resulting in an actual DNF in Singapore (which was crushing, because it's my favourite and best circuit), and twice nothing actually happened. My Control Electronics was the culprit for my retirement and was relatively fresh still - certainly less than 40% wear. I definitely welcome these random failures to add a touch more realism and potential for heatbreak into the game. Not only does it even things up with the AI who were the only ones at risk of DNFing previously, it also means you c
  13. Bottas has dominated the first season of my My Team save so far, about to claim the title in the penultimate race from Perez. I'm fine with it as I actually like the guy a lot - but I can't pretend it's particularly realistic considering his performance the last couple of seasons!
  14. I use Formula1color.com for things like this. It converted it to: H: 38 S: 240 L: 120
  15. Maybe that's the problem. I drive like I literally pay the repair bills myself whereas I should embrace my inner Maldonado.
  16. Thank you for sharing! 'Crazy' really is the right word for what a lot of those races look like. It's good to know that other players are having exciting races that can get eventful. I just want to have the same thing too, you know? See some of the leaders trip over each other and snipe a lucky point every now and then thanks to the Safety Car, that kind of thing. It's not that I want every race to be like that. But it's just that when you set the SC rate to 'Increased', you'd expect to get one more than twice in eight races...
  17. I wanted to ask about other people's experiences before I reported this as a bug in case everything is working as intended. I was one of the players who had barely any Safety Car appearances in career mode in F1 2019 and then again in F1 2020. I really enjoy racing in this game, but having the SC never make an appearance for two games straight was a little disappointing because it meant there was never a risk of races suddenly transforming due to a opportunistic Safety Car deployment. And reading reports of hundreds of players having no such issues was pretty frustrating, because there wa

    SC Rules

    People need to be careful what they wish for when it comes to unlapping under the Safety Car. It would be guaranteed to open a whole new area of possibilities for bugs that would lead to twice the amount of players complaining they got screwed over than there are people asking for it to be coded in.
  19. I have the same issue. I have it showing 2/3, even though I've taken multiple poles in GP mode since then using one-shot qualifying and short qualifying.
  20. Honestly, I don't pay attention to the programme in terms of it being a prediction of qualifying performance. I simply see it as a challenge to earn development points by making a 'game' of the qualifying simulation runs real times do at the end of FP3. I just do as quick a lap I can at the end of FP3 and if I pass, I pass. If not, oh well.
  21. Once you get used to it and build up a muscle memory, you'll find that you'll can brake pretty effectively. You'll naturally lock up every now and then, but that feels fairly realistic to me. It's definitely more immersive and rewarding racing without ABS on.
  22. There definitely is for braking - especially set to 'strong'. I love how you can 'feel' the limit of the brakes this year due to the resistance of L2 alone. It's the one big benefit of the next-gen version for me.
  23. Don't forget, the track gets quicker as you go from free practice into qualifying, so setting a 'realistic' target time in qualifying isn't actually fair, because you'll naturally go quicker in qualifying itself. I tested this out last week.

    F1 2021

    My brother works at Codemasters. He confirmed to me that the terms of their license with FOM demand that every time someone posts a thread asking when the new tracks are coming, they must be delayed by another week.
