  1. Just chiming in to say been having this same issue too. Only works if you have one account signed in which is a pain as that means the Schumacher content cant be used on your other accounts.

    Oh it's no big issue since you barely see the avatars anyway, just would be nice! I get you though, games should definitely try to add more styles in general since customization is something most people enjoy. More options is always better!

    This is probably true but they did manage it with Calderon. All the player females look bald. Rather have ugly hair than none! They could do with adding some more Asian faces too. The only Male one they have is the big guy at the bottom.

    End of Season Driver Transfers

    I had a pretty good one from the file I've reached season 2 in: Mercedes: Hamilton/Vettel Ferrari: Verstappen/Leclerc Red Bull: Ricciardo/Albon Mclaren: Sainz/Norris Renault: Kvyat/Ocon AlphaTauri: Gasly/Stroll Racing Point: Perez/Giovinazzi Alfa: Bottas/Matsushita MyTeam: My driver/Kimi Haas and Williams stayed the same too. Do the people that get the crazy moves notice them having bad years? Bottas dropped back to Alfa in mine but he had a pretty poor season one whereas Gio had a great year (in part to him being really quick on Xbox version 1.1 for some reason!).

    Same items in item shop

    I was expecting at least the helmets removed from 2019 to appear in the item shop. Which equally would be bad since, you know, charging again for something that was already in the game.. but at this point I'd be delighted to be able to buy those ones. I just want that one that you could colour to look like Button's helmet, i forget the name.

    Option for driver retirements

    Yes, absolutely. I know it cant be done at the start for licensing reasons but certainly could be an option from season 2 onwards. More options is always better.

    Option for driver retirements

    Any chance of an option being added in a future updates to disable driver retirements like there is with drivers changing teams? I like the addition but there are some files where it would be nice to be able to keep drivers like Kimi and Vettel on the roster for the full career mode.

    Item Store

    I actually quite like the addition. However, what I really don't like is how it works: the rotations. I feel like all the items should be available to buy at any time. I've got the coins to spend, but nothing to spend them on waiting around for the chance of something appearing. I want to be able to spend the coins, maybe even buy more. But not if I have to wait around for something to appear.
  9. Seems kind of a waste of time doing those activities if they're only temporary. +1 extra racecraft will do nothing for one weekend.
  10. I'm not even sure driver training is working. On mine, I've noticed their stats keep going back to their default after each race. Are they only temporary? Or a glitch? Could be part of the issue.

    2nd Driver Rating

    Would like to know too, seems a waste investing in driver stat activities if it's only a boost for one race. On a related note, is it known what the green stat increases do? Like on the driver transfer window, Ricciardo has green +5's on all stats. I know it's due to the driver development department upgrades but does that mean hes constantly performing at 95 pace instead of 90 for example? If so then nearly all the drivers will have high 90 stats with a maxed out driver development department.

    Previous f1 series helmets in f1 2020

    Hope so.. I honestly just want the one you can make look like Button's from 2019.
  13. Are they on rotation in the item store? Was a bit disappointed to see my three favourites from 2019 not present. Honestly, I was under the impression we'd start with the same helmets as in 2019 and the ones in the store and the podium pass would be new ones.

    Naming team as Honda

    I had planned to create a Honda team, however it tells me it contains prohibited words and can't name my team as a result. I assume it's due to them being an engine supplier but is there any chance that it can be removed from the prohibited names? Also, wasn't there supposed to be a Schumacher audio name?

    Naming team as Honda

    Well, darn. Thanks for the quick replies. Guess I'll just do Brawn or BAR instead.

    Additional tracks in F1 2020

    Licensing is the obvious reason why they won't be included. So we can't forget about it. Like everyone else has said, the game is licensed for the calendar that would have been so they would have to spend more to get these four tracks licensed too. It's not about how easy they are to add to the game. From a technical standpoint they would be very easy to add. (Hockenheim being the most glaringly easy one) The only way I can see them doing that is if they released them as DLC. This would put towards covering the cost of licensing them. But I don't expect to see any of them included. It would be nice, and obviously I would be happy for them to be added. But realistically, it probably won't happen.

    F1® 2020 | Pre-Season Testing

    Yup, this is something that should be next on the list of improvements for the single player. As most have said, have them act like practice sessions. There's 6(?) days of testing so could have different practice programmes taking place over that course. Then obviously the more laps you do the better but there should be an option to simulate it (like you can with practice programmes in 2019) so you'll get some extra resource points. Could throw some variation in and use the pre-season test to "upgrade" the upgrades. Have seperate resource points just for the pre-season test and you can spend those to change minor upgrades to major upgrades, or major upgrades to ultimate upgrades etc. Or you can spend them on reducing the cost/time required for upgrades over the course of the season instead of having that as part of your contract. With how My Team and Career looks like it's changing you can maybe use pre-season resource points to train your teammate too. So rather than just directly improving the car over pre-season, you improve the potential of the car. Then obviously it would all be affected by rule changes so you'll need to spend them wisely. Would make each season more interesting as you won't know the full potential of your rivals as it'll be different every season and after every rule change so you can't just guess by starting a new game on a seperate file to check each teams upgrade path.

    MyTeam audio name or reference

    If there's an option for it I imagine there'll either be a selection of stock names (like with the drivers) or former team names like Jordan, Tyrrell etc. But I think it's more likely it'll be refered to as the new team.

    Driving for Another Team in MyTeam

    If the idea of a driver staying at the same team for ten seasons is what bugs you then just rename your driver every few seasons and hire a different teammate. If you want to play as just yourself as the driver then the standard career mode is the mode you'd be playing.
  20. Just think of yourself as controlling the team rather than just one person that both owns it and drives. That's how I'm doing it anyway. Like I'll start with Lotus-Renault, I'll name my driver Alonso and just think of it as the team owner being Flavio or something but I just happen to have control over both.

    Which Engine?

    Depends what team I make I guess, I'm going to have a few saves with some real team names. I was going to do a Honda works team at first so I guess that choice will be fairly simple.
  22. Personally I think most of the stats are pretty good, but there are a few that need tweaking. I'd change the pace of a few: Raikkonen at 85, Sainz at 86 and swap Ricciardo and Bottas' around. I'd lower Kvyat to 82 and Stroll to 80. Awareness for Bottas I'd drop to around 94 or 95. I'd also swap Magnussen and Grosjean's awareness/race craft. Leclerc at 86 overall seems low but must remember his experience stat will be dropping it. His stats are good.

    Mechanical failure

    Yep this is something that I really can't understand why it isn't already in the game. The reason given years ago was that it would frustrate players... Can easily be tuned for all players with an option of On/AI only/Off though. It makes winning a championship very easy when your car is indestructible but your rivals drop out of 3-4 races. Personally at the moment, I sometimes do a dice roll before a race to choose which engine parts to use to make up for it and if they're nearly broken..so be it, theres my random failure for the season. Still anti climactic though as I'll probably know beforehand whether I'm finishing or not. Also fully agree with MrHawk. That god awful slowmo after terminal damage needs to go! Hated that since 2010.
  24. The last four teams have been revealed now as well. Some will cause some debate! Sainz looks slightly underrated again but not as off as last year. Raikkonen has been sensibly nerfed but I'd question the Ferrari drivers.. overall scores are both lower than Bottas. Magnussen looks underrated compared to Grosjean too.
  25. I'd say that's about right, honestly. The main difference between them is that Lewis is a more complete driver which is reflected in the stats. Glad to see they're finally buffing Ricciardo to better reflect him. I think right now the only stats I'd question are Russell's. Think they've done him dirty there and he should be at minimum at the same level as Albon or Ocon. I'm now interested to see if they've finally buffed Sainz too and the Ferrari scores will no doubt stir debate!
