Everything posted by DrDraken

  1. There are a bunch of posts on this topic. I agree. It should be an option. Push-to-hold or toggle. And any moment now a Mod will merge all these posts together into the Overtake Button Mega Thread. 🤣

    Communicating with online services

    I suggest you log this as a bug in the Bugs section (use the correct template or it won't go to the devs). That way, they can look into it and hopefully fix it. If you leave it here, it won't get looked into.

    My Team - My Grid - My Game

    I originally thought the problem might be due to licence limitations, but if the game can make grid changes, why not the player? It can't happen during season 1, at least not the first half, because that WOULD be contrary to who is on current F1 teams. But once the game can do it, we should be able to as well. This would also allow us to keep the grid exactly the same as real life, from season to season.

    Radio preference changes

    Similar post you might be interested in. You are not alone. 🙂

    F1 Steering wheel rev lights options?

    I think we should be able to design the wheel and its parts however we want. it's our wheel, on our car, in our Team. To implement this, it would probably be easiest to give a choice of layout, then choice of styles for the main parts. So, pick a layout like Williams if you want the gear indicator on the car, not on the wheel. Pick the Merc one, or the Ferrari, or the McLaren, etc, if you like where the bits are on that particular wheel. Add and remove and reposition bits like we can for the HUD. Choose the style of LEDs you want, and the colour (up to 3 colours for the 3 rev bands). Choose the size and colour of the font for the gear indicator. Etc. It's MY Team, and I want MY wheel. 😛

    Overtake button as hold rather than on/off

    It also changes the way the car behaves going into a braking zone, since you're getting an additional 160 horsepower. Definitely should be an option to have it as push-to-hold, or toggle.

    better Replays

    Agreed. But either to a specific lap or a specific time in the race.

    Add Toggle to get real advertisements

    It could be based on your account settings. I know you give your date of birth when creating an account on XBox, and I'm pretty sure it's the same for Steam and PSN. Perhaps that can be used to verify age, and then show the corresponding ad banners?

    Optional extension of position HUD

    I would be very surprised if this isn't one of the first patches we get. They already have our 3-character "name" as part of our profile, so it should be a matter of changing the full name for the abbreviation in the display tree. But yes, we definitely need to be able to show more than 5. And, it should always show the time you need to beat. So, in Qualifying, it shows your time and the time of the drivers around you, and at the top either the Pole time, or the time needed to get into the next Qualifying session. In the race, it would show your time and the drivers around you, plus the leader's time at the top (each lap, despite being higher or lower) so you know how you're faring against them.
  10. Agreed. I think during any Practice session. As you wrote, just pull off to the right on your way out of the pits. The game could recognize that you're in the "practice box" and do the standard "Hold clutch... countdown... Lights Out" to allow you to practice. Nice idea. 🙂
  11. Agree with @Nightfire1964 on this one. It would make sense to get the sponsor money first, so although this may be by design, it should be changed. Logging a bug report (using the correct template) means it has a chance to get to the devs and get fixed.

    Or on the halo.

    Save colours

    Agreed. I have two main liveries, and it would be great to save the colours. I've gotten pretty good at matching them up, but it's far from ideal.

    Regular, strict & realistic track limits

    Definitely log this under the Bugs section. That way the devs can have a look at what happened, and potentially adjust things so this gets handled. Because this is absolutely in need of fixing.

    Stop Jeff tutorials when idle in pits

    Or audition current employees. I guarantee someone there has a voice that will record well and sound good as an "Engineer" over the radio. Female Race Engineer, anyone?

    Regular, strict & realistic track limits

    This would fix more than just the penalty system. Drivers in real life do not drive on these tracks like players do playing the game. If the off-track areas were more realistic in terms of grip, the game would be that much closer to real, and the players would have to keep their cars within track limits the same as real drivers do now. That plus a "Regular" version that allows you to win back warnings, gives a little lea-way once in a while, or however it gets done, would make this just about perfect.

    Stop Jeff tutorials when idle in pits

    They need to bring back Driver School. F1 2012 had it (and others) and it was a great way to introduce the player to the game. Learn how to use DRS and what it does, how to brake into corners, etc. You got points depending on how you did, and the more points you got, the more teams offered you a contract. And when you got to the garage, your race engineer understood that you had completed driver training and knew how to drive the car, and didn't have to teach you everything. Now, you apparently know nothing about driving an F1 car, but you get a contract offer from every team? Can we have a little realism, please?
  18. This has been mentioned in a few posts now, and I fully agree. We need to be able to see any "laundry lists" at all times. Add it to the menu. Give us the option to view Challenges, Sponsor Goals, and anything else that could be achieved through game play.

    Sponsor Logo color on Racing Suit

    Ok. That definitely needs to be changeable then. On my car, they're yellow, so I didn't realize they're always yellow on the racing suit. We should be able to change the colour, or the location so we can put it against an appropriate background.

    I recommend you post a bug report in the Bug Reporting section of Technical Assistance sub-forum. That's the best way for it to be seen.

    Sponsor Logo color on Racing Suit

    What colour is that logo on your car?
  22. I would love to be able to dress my car in a matte finish, or diamond plate chrome, or stucco, or ... (add your ideas, folks). Please add finishes and textures as Tier Rewards.
  23. IRL, cars have a lot of sponsors. The halo, for example, has about 4 different ones. Idea: Add sponsors/locations on the car as a reward for hitting certain tiers (every 25 for example). Additional sponsors could bring in additional income, even if only a small amount.
  24. Currently, the only way to get into the same race is to send an invite through Steam. It would be great if there was a way to "team up" with friends, THEN enter the multiplayer lobby. This could even include some form of in-game communication if that's feasible. That way, you and your friends can jump into multiplayer races together.

    Allow us to see sponsor objectives during the race weekend.

    This applies to all the challenges. If there's something that we can potentially be working on, or able to complete, it should be viewable at any time. Maybe add this to the main menu items. A list showing all the daily, weekly, series challenges, sponsor goals, etc. That way, we can bring up the list at any time to check our progress. I also suggested an App that links to the game and shows the same information, so you can view it on your phone or whatever while playing. Heck, I'd do this myself if I had a clue how to program phone apps. 😛
