  1. Are the minimum requirements already known for pc? So I know if I can preorder it on Steam or stick to my elder Xbox
  2. Thank you very much for your follow up, can't wait to play a full season against the a.i. with a friend of mine!
  3. Name of league Rat Bull, platform Xbox. I think I posted the code in this topic? Anyway when I search by name it doesn't appear, nor by unique code. Thank you for any update

    is Bottas overpowered in your game?

    In my case, Bottas is stronger than Hamilton only in myteam and career mode. In such 2 modes yes, Bottas looks like the phenom and Hamilton the mere 2nd driver who dnfs a lot as well. On the other hand, I am currently playing the official season in "Championship" mode and after 10 rounds Hamilton is 1st and pulling away from Bottas and Lewis getting most of the poles and wins. Also the simple "Grand Prix" mode looks unaffected, with Hamilton being the man to beat and realisticly outperforming the normal drivers.

    Talking about force feedback sensations, I agree about 2017 being very good. In 2020 in have huge issues in actually feeling traction loss on the rear end, and when I feel it it is already to late and not gradual at all. Although with a Ts base I am able to pull off saves, counter and corrections I wasn't able to pull off with the tx (equal to T300). But I don't know if 2017 had better ffb sensations or just better car handling for my driving style. Traction control topic, I did struggle a lot before sticking to TC off, but now also thanks to this more precise and powerful wheel base I can really exploit throttle control to rotate the car, at the expense of less stability and a little bit more risk. But medium is also ok to be fast. Instead I found that full TC really cuts the power too much to be competitive. But still, in 2019 Tc off and no assists gave you more advantage compared to 2020, where driving with no mechanical assists doesn't reward you this much. Sorry for the off topic! I tried your ffb settings and the road effect is a bit too much. With the TS base it is ok to run it medium-high but the "canned" effects such as road, kerbs and off track can be set to very low values as you receive already a lot of detailed information with the force feedback basic setting. Did not try your car setup in Monaco but will do. It's a one of a kind setup and very different compared to the common bias. More aero on the front may give you great turn in response but I would be afraid to floor the pedal. Suspension firmer on the front may make up to this and also very soft bars and a lot of rear height is all very interesting, can't wait to try it

    I will give your ffb settings a try. I am a Ts-Xw user which finds a good balance by setting it to 80-85 in game and low canned effects such as kerbs and tracks but I treat myself with a 35 damper. But my issue is feeling the rear grip loss when accelerating and feeling the traction, so I don't know if ffb settings calibrated for full TC would actually help me. I'll try and give you feedback!
  7. Description: I want to create a private league to play with a friend of mine, but he cannot join it by code. Tried two times with 2 different leagues and also tried his league, it always shows an error screen saying that there is no league corresponding to such code. In addition to this, my friend is not among the friends in the ingame invite list, where i find only 31 friends playing F1 2020 but not him. I also do not appear in his invite friends list in his league. Platform: Xbox Version 1.16 Leagues Both wired and with open nat Amount of players: 2 humans and the rest is a.i. Hosts: me 2 times, him last time. Problem happened for both at different times Made the problem happen again by creating 3 leagues myself and 1 league my friend Report code: SKED-PJXT-SERP-MEJDug Reporting - PLEASE FOLLOW RULES AND COMPLETE REPORTS Bug Report Template | Multiplayer Gamemodes By BarryBL, July 6, 2020 in Techni

    Career mode: car improvements and setups

    Hello everyone, I have my own list of setups that are crafted for my driving style and for race situations that I usually use in online and league racing but suitable for grand prix and career modes. At the 3rd season in career mode I decided to join Mercedes as I wanted to be able to be a championship contender. But I realized that my setups do not perform well anymore. Understeer when entering a corner, lack of traction, poor stability... I find the car almost undrivable. Could it be because aero improvements are too much? Should I run lower aero? Does more aero impact the rake height so I should increase height? Did somebody else get the same issue? I am a lot into setup knowledge and know what the parameters do but I cannot figure out what should I modify to get the car driveable again.
  9. Hello @BarryBL, any update so far? Medal targets are still unrealistic compared to performance of teams such as Ferrari, Haas and Racing Point in example. Will it be possible for them to reflect the car performance according to the performance patch? Thanks

    Aero improvement Mod

    Yes, I saw videos about such cam and it would be an awesome add-on to get some additional lateral view! Also I did try the 15 degree but I think I need to get used to it

    Aero improvement Mod

    By the way Mario Kart features a far distance third person view which has nothing to do with the tv-pod F1 cam. So if the purpose is to belittle tv pod cam users the comparison is not accurate. I would like to drive in cockpit view but the game lacks peripheral vision if playing with a single monitor. I drive with a t-cam with very low FOV as a compromise between more immersion and still being somewhat competitive in leagues. But when I play offline I have lots of fun in cockpit view

    Qualifying tires / Tires to start the race

    Yes, I was assuming you hit q3, if you don't the q3 set can be taken to the race. But if you hit q3 and do not use the q3 set you lost a new set of softs

    Qualifying tires / Tires to start the race

    Also, keep in mind that you will have a set of soft exclusive for q3: so it's better to use that set in q3 instead of another one as it will be the one that will be sent back regardless of its usage. In example, if you use a set in q1 and a set in q2 you may have 2 sets of softs left: one named q1 or q2 and the last one named q3. If you don't use the one named q3, it will be sent back unused and you won't be able to bring a new set of softs to the race

    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?
