    AI Difficulty Calculator

    Hi! I would like to give my feedback to the calculator. I feel like I am a consistent driver, not a champion, clean style; I am a wheel user and I play AI level 101, no assists except racing line on corners. I always found the AI in the game inconsistent from track to track and at first I didn't bother, as it could be me not performing well in some tracks. The experience i look for is realism, so I always tweaked my AI level to have fun and fight where the car is supposed to fight in, so no podiums with Williams, in example. First, I verified if 101 was my level, and it was very difficult for me to drive with the base setup but in the end I tied Stroll's time at 101 so this was good. I tweaked Austria from 101 to 107 and this was good, I battled in the midfield with my midfield Ferrari dueling mostly with Leclerc and Sainz. But I found UK too low at 92, as I achieved P3 in q1 with midfield Alphatauri. So I raised it at 95 for the race but still found myself from p14 to p3 in about 4 laps, shut down the console and went back to my base 101. This was Better, I won the race due to good safety car strategy but still don't find it plausible that I dueled wheel to wheel with Ham and Bot until last lap. Maybe Spain si a circuit I am not particularly good at and I should raise my base AI a bit?
  2. A detailed description of the issue. Please include any error codes here. Career mode, cold tyres before formation lap as it should be. If i reload the session and start the formation lap over again, tyres are already warmed up. Also, shutting down the system and reloading the save; it looks like already warm tyres happen randomly.

  3. Hi Barry, are you sure? I did play with my friend in split screen mode, we used a TX and a TMX both by Thrustmaster. Could it be the reason for some visual bugs and some commands not responding correctly? Other than that, we did have fun and could drive properly.

    Split screen 2 player several bugs and glitches

    Thanks Barry, any recommendation for Xbox? Need to do some backups? Edit: reinstalled and also got back the rain drops on camera which were not featured since a couple of weeks.
  5. A detailed description of the issue. Please include any error codes here. Unfortunately I have no error codes to report but my esperience in split screen was particularly bugged yesterday. As you will see in the pics attached, when choosing the personal myteam team to race instead of the full car we saw only the 4 tyres and this was also in the race, we raced with no driver nor car, tyres only. AlSo when driving for other teams, the driver's body was missing. Podiums with floating heads, a floating head on the track on the starting grid for the whole race, and last but not least when trying a 5 laps race with classic cars my friend started the race from the pitlane and even got his wing replaced when for me it was lights out and away we go...

  6. After the performance update team goals didn not change: in Championship mode Ferrari medals require to obtain 1st place for gold, 2nd for silver and 4th for bronze, equal to Mercedes and Red Bull. On the other hand, After the performance boost Racing Point still needs only 7th, 8th and 10th; equal to Haas. I think it should be adjusted according to the performances in game.

    Thrustmaster pedals

    I felt the same and swapped them too! And my right ankle became tired soon. But I didn't have the possibility to check for a better spring for the gas pedal so I tried to asjust to its softer feeling, which is indeed much more resistant compared to the stock t3pa. I don't really have springs shops or factories in the nearbies so I will wait for something to come up on the internet...

    Thrustmaster pedals

    Hi! I'd like to share my experience with Thrustmaster pedals. I started off with a TMX in April, equipped with T3PA pedals already. They are good but could be improved, after practicing I felt the need for a different braking feeling. First thing I did was trying the conical rubber mod that came in stock, but it left me a bit disappointed: the rubber was too hard to actually make me feel some sort of progression in braking. Therefore I did some research and used the conical mod stand to tie an anti-stress ball behind the pedal, and that is what made me learn how to drive without abs. Then, the throttle: with traction control on medium I had no problems, but trying to turn it off was a pain, as the gas spring offers no resistance whatsoever. So my solution was to stick a sponge behind the pedal to gain some resistance. Eventually, I bought a rubber mod from 3Drap to be installed within the brake spring and swapped the clutch and gas springs to have more resistance. I race with some very light home shoes with rubber heels for grip. Many people recommended me to play with socks only for foot sensitivity but I am very used to the grip my home shoes have, so I am sticking with them. Then come August i did bite the bullet and got my T-LCM: oh dear, what a difference. Solid materials and tons of combinations to adjust the pressure to my braking style, both in terms of PC calibration and different springs! I spent a month trying different spring combos and calibration settings just to shave off a couple more tenths per lap. All in all, it did help a lot in my consistency, but there is more to be said... Unluckily I had to return my T-LCM due to not responding anymore to any input. Thrustmaster was fast in replying, providing assistance and organizing a free return for repairs, the whole procedure took no longer than 2 weeks to get by pedals back working perfectly. I race in a league, so I was glad I did not sell my T3PA already, as this made it possible for me not to give up my race in Brazil. I performed a solid race but in some sort of anxiety as I was racing with no assists and I felt I did not have full control of my inputs in comparison to the T-LCM, for sure the lack of consistency, especially in braking, slowed me down a bit but all in all I was glad I had a T3PA in that moment. If you can afford it and you play hours and hours and on a daily basis, I'd recommend the T-LCM for those who must or want to stay in the Thrustmaster ecosystem.

    Lack of AI mistakes and crashes

    I was one of those people who complained that AI were on rails and not making mistakes but maybe this is linked to AI difficulty level. When I played at 90-95 I could see some slight lockups or traction losses, but yesterday I was playing at AI level 100 a 50% Grand Prix in Mexico and Hamilton made a quite major mistake by spinning completely, definitely not a scripted accident such as mechanical DNFs that can occur within the bots. This was really pleasant, I wish it could happen more and more thus making room for recovering from your mistakes and playing without flashbacks.

    Equal cars in grand prix mode.

    You're right, I misunderstood as I was focusing more on the title
  11. HenricusVonG

    Performance Patch coming soon?

    Yes, 50% Mexico. Playing as Albon, a.i. 100 1 Bottas, 2 Albon, 3 Ham, 4 Ver, 5 Perez, 6 Leclerc, 7 Vettel, 8 Ocon. Sainz and Latifi DNF. Monster run by Verstappen from p20 due to not having attempted quali. Surprised by a.i. Hamilton brutally spinning in front of me due to a mistake, added a ton of realism

    Equal cars in grand prix mode.

    i agree, as I would love to practice grand prix with equal cars performances so I can get ready for my league races without having somebody else playing with me in a lobby.

    Bars or suspension for traction?

    Thank You, Janbonator! Yesterday I tested this in Bahrain, for which I had already lots of data gathered for my league training and preparation. Last week I tried a setup with suspensions 1-3 and bars 5-8 or 6-8, I always have them close to each other because I am afraid of oversteer and losing the rear end of the car, but always stiffer on the rear, and I almost convinced myself that I would have played with traction control on medium on Sunday, because stability and reliability about not spinning were worth the trade with potential 1-2 tenths per lap where I would be tense all the time and make room for mistakes. Yesterday I tried it by not changing the suspensions or maybe having a 2-2, it's harder having stiffer front suspensions as you said, bars at 6-5 so still soft but softer at the rear and I found I could floor the throttle early enough, and I was also able to countersteer the times I was beginning to spin, I was able to feel the loss of traction and correct it. I think that maybe not having the same rotation can lose me 2-3 tenths per lap but we run 50% races therefore the less tyre wear experienced can be good on a track that eats your tyres such as Bahrain! If I will be using the soft compound I can keep up the performance for 2 or 3 laps more compared to my previous setup with a stiffer rear.

    Bars or suspension for traction?

    So, I studied a lot of setups guides and I figured out where to intervene for understeer, oversteer and so on. I also learned that a setup with harder fronts can help with traction and flooring the gas without being afraid of spinning: harder suspensions and bars on the front and softer rear can help you with it, but at the cost of potential understeer. Now, rotation is very important and most of the setups, also for race and not time trial, do use a harder rear, in example suspensions 1-3 and bars 3-9. So, if I do want to address my traction problem I know I have to be harder on the front and softer on the rear, but I want to intervene only on one between suspensions and bars, otherwise I will be too understeery. My thought is that I should intervene on the anti-roll bars, in example instead of a common 3-8 or 4-9 having a 7-6, because a softer front suspension is vital to attack the kerbs and also being able to start flooring the throttle mid-corner can help me with having already a good traction when the car becomes straight. (Numbers are only to give an idea, obviouslt every track is different). What do you think? Stiffer front on the suspensions or bars to have better traction and car more planted?

    Traction control on low

    Hello! I always wondered why the traction control assist can be full, medium and then off without a "low" level. I am stuck in between always using "off" but being constantly terrified about possible spinning, and when I play on "medium" it's too much, sometimes I feel like I am driving a boat and cannot exploit feathering the throttle for gaining some extra rotation mid corner. Could it be a feature for next patches? I would achieve my comfort zone!
