    GRID - Mode/Feature/Content Suggestions

    Hey Ben, I've asked about fixing FoV before. Nothing is going to be fixed with this title. The Devs obviously think that having the correct view is less important than having a clean car! It really ruins immersion for me. Sorry there isn't any more positive news. Maybe you could let @CMTGK know how you feel.

    FoV fix??

    @ChrisGrovesMCM Good Afternoon Chris. I've asked a couple of times now regarding a fix to the amount of FoV adjustment but there's been nothing really in the way of a response, so maybe some visuals will help in showing you my issue. I have a 49" 32:9 monitor and at 55cm from the screen my FoV should be circa 34 degrees but Grid only goes down to 55 degrees. Please look at the examples below which feature the same Aston Martin car at 55 degrees FoV and 34 Degrees FoV. As you can see from the Top Grid pic, the seat head restraints are visible and the in-game steering wheel looks way too small. The view in the Bottom Assetto Corsa pic is more natural and authentic. If the FoV slider could have it's range extended down to low 30's then would be appreciated. If some seat manipulation controls could be added, that would be great. F1 2019, Dirl 4 and Dirt Rally (which I own) all have this feature. Please help, Dashcam footage is not ideal either as I cannot see the side mirrors or car instruments in that view. Thanks in advance.

    FoV fix??

    I've been playing Assetto Corsa Competizione on PC for a few months now. It's polished, it's getting more DLC later this year, the handling is great AND you can adjust the FoV and seat by a huge degree. IMHO the best game out there (if you like GT cars). Grid....pah.

    FoV fix??

    @minetti ' CM is simply a well-known brand and it's easy to sell car games under this banner. ' I'm afraid they'll have a difficult time to sell any to me in the future. Previously bought: Dirt 4 Dirt Rally Grid (Original) F1 2010 F1 2018 F1 2019 Grid 2019 There will be no more unless there is a change of principles.

    FoV fix??

    @CMTGK Thank you for your endevours getting this to the Dev team. I can't say I'm happy with the outcome though. For a developer to not consider fixing the non-realistic driving view is an atrocious decision to me. Why was the decision to have a vertical FoV as high as 95 made? Maybe the devs got confused with Vertical FoV and Horizontal Fov, as 95 H.Fov is not ludicrous. Since it is confirmed this this will not be actioned, I look forward to season 3 so I can complete and then uninstall this beta of a game (which I purchased just after launch day for £64.99). Lesson for the future for me and I suspect many other people too: Don't buy a game on launch day, wait to see how it develops. If people are complaining, stay well away! Disappointed.

    FoV fix??

    @RagingBeard They only argument they could possibly have is that either they are gaming on a cinema screen or they don't appreciate that the cockpit view should be able to provide a 1:1 scale view. If you choose cockpit view it should feel like you are in the cockpit, not viewing it from a 3rd person point of view.

    FoV fix??

    Hello @CMTGK. Before @ChrisGrovesMCM left his post he agreed that the FoV issue that I and others have would be looked into. As you have now taken over, can you confirm that this will be actioned? I understand that Grid is 'not a proper sim' but it does so many things right. This is the only real issue I personally have and I believe it shouldn't be a massive headache to implement. Any news would be welcomed. Thanks.

    FoV fix??

    Chris, Thanks for getting back to us regarding this. I've seen posts on other forums where people are requesting this very fix.....I'm glad that it has been (re)recognised. For me this is a total game changer as I drive cockpit view for realism and immersion and driving from the back seat or sat on the bonnet ruins that immersion! I would be extremely grateful if you could keep us posted with any updates or information. Cheers.

    FoV fix??

    Cmon @ChrisGrovesMCM there are a few people that share the need to have the FoV adjustable. At least some acknowledgement that you'll discuss it with the team would be nice. I'm starting to lose hope that this will even be considered, let alone fixed. Prove me wrong.....please.

    FoV fix??

    I'm glad to have some support on this Newgun. Hopefully @ChrisGrovesMCM will see this and take it to the team for further discussion. I really can't see it being difficult to implement as this function already exists. As you say, it just needs to go further below 55 (30 would be ideal).
  11. @ChrisGrovesMCM I've asked a couple of times now about a possible fix for the Cockpit view FoV setting. On a 49" 32/9 screen at 24" away the Fov needs to be about 33. The cockpit is way too zoomed out for anyone that wants an authentic in-car view. The incorrect Fov makes the sense of speed wrong too as it stretches the track out. Please tell me it will be looked into. Cheers.

    I agree with this 100%. @ChrisGrovesMCM any news that greater adjustment of FoV and moveable seat will be implemented?

    Exactly. I use cockpit view in F1 2019 and I can adjust the view to how I want. If this game uses the same engine (as mentioned above) this should be a quick fix that will keep those that 'take it a bit more seriously' happy.

    I know this has been mentioned before but the FOV setting needs a wider (lower number) adjustment range. I use a wheel and a full rig, I sit 60cm away from a 49" 32:9 monitor and the vertical FOV should be around 31 degrees. For the minimum 55 FOV to be accurate I would have to sit 32cm away from my screen or use a 90" projector! At higher FOV values the situation is worse. For proper immersion, sense of speed and braking accuracy, this is very important to set up correctly. I can't believe this is not an issue for almost everyone that uses cockpit view, maybe everyone uses huge screens, I don't know. Please don't ask me to use dashcam view as the FOV is off (and unchangeable) in that view too. Lastly, can we have some way to move the seat up, down, backwards and forwards so we can align the real steering wheel to the in-game one as well as having an accurate view out of the window? Thanks for listening.
