  1. Went to watch a replay of my race but it seems the team never bothered getting the car ready and just took a seat instead. Seems this lad is sat on my lap, it's all getting a bit too real here boys Feel like I'm watching Le Mans and we've cut to the garage crew catching a few ZZZ's I realise this is likely caused by my saving mid race and returning later but pretty funny nonetheless and yet another pesky bug that reporting just seems pointless.

    F1 2021 need 4 new courses & 3 new location

    In the UK with a strong connection I find it to have more problems than other games but it never really hits unusable. sometimes the whole lobby gets kicked, sometimes I'll load into a lobby and only half of it is in the race. Sometimes others connection problems are clearly causing lag and issues loading in and out of the lobby / race sessions, and more often than others I'll load a lobby and no players will have any names and the game needs to be restarted. All these issues are rare occurrences on other games but do happen from to time, on F1 2020 I'd say you'll see at least one in a 1/2 hour session. I personally find the game loads very quickly from PS4 home screen to race lobby, so it's not too bad, but I can certainly see how it would annoy people especially those looking for a more serious league experience or similar.

    I turned it off as well, unfortunately it's a nice idea but they haven't implemented it in a way that works fully or is realistic, therefore removing it from our games is the right move until they can do this.

    F1 2021 ps4 or ps5?

    Considering you can't buy a PS5 at the moment, at least in the UK 'unavailable', they'd be mad to limit their sales and make it next-gen exclusive. Stranger things have happened of course but I expect at least a half-assed livery update for current gen.

    F2 pit stop Sprintrace

    Yeah for sure, as @kleed says above, when you're fighting for a championship and your rival pits for no other reason than the game can't organise tires properly, handing you the race, thats'a real issue and I'd imagine only overlooked because those playing F2 season all the way through are probably a small part of the user base. So that's a real shame. I will do some testing myself and see if there's any ways around it. Fully agree that it doesn't impact the career enough, it doesn't store your F2 results or anything and of course you can crash out of every race and still join Merc. (I guess as long as you don't beat Lewis.. er.. I mean Bottas, that's fine ) It was initially irritating because of course it's plastered everywhere that your F2 performance matters, but it's only a bit of acclaim when you start out, lol. It actually makes more of a difference in 2019 since it sets up a 'storyline' of sorts, and beings new drivers with you into F1. It was all a bit TOCA 3 for me, but it was still more than we actually got in 2020!

    F2 pit stop Sprintrace

    The problem is more with the AI pitting and basically gifting the player the race though, no? I did some F2 on 50%/50% when the game first came out and this was a problem then I just hoped they might have fixed it.

    F2 pit stop Sprintrace

    IS this issue avoided if you run Feature at 50% and Sprint at 25% perhaps? Been looking to do a F2 season, will be disappointed if it's not working properly.

    Anyone know this paint scheme?

    Maybe I'm missing something but I don't see this in my liveries? Anyone know what it's calleD? Maybe it's just the way they have it set up with colors it looks different when default.

    Anyone know this paint scheme?

    Ah okay, cheers man. There's a handful I'm seeing around that definitely aren't in my list or in the store for me. I didn't play the game for a good while, seems I missed a couple of 'seasons'. Shame, hope they make all the content available once the the cycle is finished anyway.

    Some 2021 and beyond suggestions

    You should check out Gran Turismo's creation suite to see what is possible to be done for liveries, helmets and sits, it is exactly what this game needs, you can create (and people do and are downloadable in game) real life liveries and amazing fictional designs of all types. And that's on console exclusive, so it can be done and remain on all platforms. Anyway I had been thinking with next gen, surely now is the time we got rid of the basic national flags in the crowds and really got something more evocative and atmospheric Also high time to introduce more of the F1 fan culture into the game, wile I don't expect hundreds / thousands of fans to be animated, surely tracks like Monza or Silverstone can have some broadcast elements or cutscenes that evoke the following: It's currently all way too sterile off track and has very little immersion into the world of F1. Let's see some real F1 style interview cut scenes / interactive bits F1 is so much bigger than the race itself and while like everyone, I want to see improvements to the racing experience to make it the best it can be, the games have been really lacking in aesthetics, world building and any kind of immersive atmosphere off track for a few years now, especially with the abandoning of the paddocks area and mobile office's etc. that were in F1 2017 (though were still incredible limited). Just my wishes for next gen with that extra power available, lets have the best and most realistic career experience ever, not just one location and a laptop screen with the occasional samey 'interview'.

    Driver Career - Williams - A Few Questions/Issues

    Ah yes, 'leave me alone, I know what I'm doing'. they should name the option that in honor of Kimi. I can't think what he would make of Jeff I have traction control on medium, I don't see how that could be connected though?

    Driver Career - Williams - A Few Questions/Issues

    So having started a career with radio on 'critical' I'm still getting basic tutorials at times, it seems to be if I'm idling in the garage at least for now. Countless hours in this game and over the years, think I've figured out the MFD but hey
  13. I don't know if you guys have given the game away free recently or what but the amount of just blatant ramming off tracks recently has been crazy. Problem is it doesn't matter if you're the victim, it hammers your safety rating regardless. I hope 2021 can bring your online dailies into the same level as Gran Turismo, I realise nothing can be perfect as that's just how people can be, but it can be a lot better for those who are clearly smashed off the racing line.
  14. Right so when apparently impervious to damage ******* just rams me over the chicane that's corner cutting is it?? 3 second penalty?? He gets nothing??! The game is not able to read the contact?!?

    What is the Best f1 game ever

    I'd certainly highlight F1 2006 in this. Leading the race in Istanbul to my gearbox having issues limiting me to 2 gears with a quarter of the race to go was a thrill not seen in the modern versions. Excellent version and boy is Sony Interactive missed.

    Driver Career - Williams - A Few Questions/Issues

    IT's been a while since I played around with driver career so 1&2 is difficult to help, we'll see if others have thoughts on it. 3. I find this essential to get the best experience with the game, unfortunately Codies refuse to balance the AI so this must be done by the player. I would recommend running sessions at each track and noting the AI qualy times at various difficulty levels, adjusting as you go to balance with your own performance. While the argument is the player is better / worse at certain tracks, I'm afraid it is an excuse so as not to better balance the AI, Austria is the smoking gun, not been touched in many versions despite being a 20 point swing in difficulty. for max immersion you must do Codies job I'm afraid. This site https://difficulty.racing/index.html may assist in making things easier for you though I can't vouch for how up to date it is. 4. In audio settings you will find radio verbosity, I have this down to critical, though it still does not prevent all nonsense it should at least shut off the basic tutorial messages. (if I recall correctly) You can of course just turn off all voice for the practice sessions if you prefer, it's unlikely you'll miss anything of value.

    No longer enjoying F1 2020

    Have dug this back out as well recently and am really enjoying it. I never know if it's just in my head or not but the races against the AI seem far livelier.

    Sick of the constant panhandling (1.16)

    Just imagine if they had left out the little dances and actually improved the podium screens alone, to incorporate more of the feel of getting there, with all the staff and crowds below, with a special scene for winning Monza as Ferrari maybe with the red smoke and the huge flag covering the crowd, or Silverstone as a Brit etc. But no we get bland face no 13 in zebra stripe pyjama doing his rendition of Grease.

    Sick of the constant panhandling (1.16)

    Absolutely mate. If they'd given us a Gran Turismo level editor for liveries, helmets and suits, with unlimited ways to design, shape and move logos, sponsors etc, as well as the ability to import custom ones and do the same, well then I could forgive some intrusive monetisation (to some extent). They however, did not. What we have is so incredibly shallow that the idea I'd pay money for more of it is genuinely funny.

    Sick of the constant panhandling (1.16)

    On a serious note, I do agree it is wearing thin (no pun intended) after all this time. I know it's just one click to skip past the XP / Podium Pass screen and all but it starts to feel like more when I'm doing a run of online ranked and it's after every quality, after every race, in the way of me seeing the lineup and results screens. And frankly, there's nothing interesting about these outfits. If you watch a podium screen, the only time you see what anyone else has come up with, do you ever think, oh that's a nice design and colour choice? Lol. there's no character to it. they're all samey and boring and all of them do a daft little dance and it's all just.. really cheap. Nothing stands out from it, it tells me nothing about the player.

    Aero improvement Mod

    The T-Cam view has been around for almost as long as I can remember and that's going back a fairly long way, the first F1 game I ever played was on the C64, not that I had much idea what was going on at that time. It's not a new invention for casuals, nor was it introduced by Codemasters, it's a long held standard of F1 titles. Frankly, it gives a better view of the track (of course) and a more enjoyable playing experience as a video game, depending on what you're looking for. Cockpit cam is very difficult to drive in, it doesn't give a very strong sensory experience and takes a lot of time to learn and adjust to. It's great that it's an option for players and in this age of video game graphics and tech that it can very detailed and somewhat immersive. It isn't however a simulation, unless it was built into some sort of VR mode, it has no way to replicate periphery vision or just the feel of being in that environment and reacting to things around you as drivers can and do in real life. For these reasons I don't believe it should be regarded as the default view nor forced on players in online competition modes. Perhaps one day, when the tech can truly simulate a cockpit experience, for now it's just an interesting feature and extra layer of immersion for those that desire it. Have a blast mate if you want to run full offline career modes in cockpit cam and do 100% races and fully immerse yourself in everything the game offers, adjusting the AI level accordingly, or joining or setting up an online league that is restricted to the view where those who want that can enjoy it. However, time trial, these kinds of competitive modes, are not simulation anyway, I don't recall drivers setting out on their own to various locations to try and beat fastest times recently? (would actually be quite fun, Liberty media...), and as with any online competitive mode players will take advantage of every single thing in the game, be they glitches, exploits, mods, options, to get ahead. Of which an alternative camera view is just one, and if you block one way, they will find others, as is the culture it is spawned from. My two cents anyway, have fun, stay safe!

    Interesting point, though I'd argue that MyTeam, while named like an EA online feature, is closer to a career mode in design, so we may not see many (and this is EA, we may not see ANY) changes. Having played some of EA's UFC 4 though, and seeing the direction of those titles, expect far more insanity when it comes to suits and liveries than we have now, lion heads, crowns and other stupidity are surely already on the way, In some ways I welcome it, as outlandish as the suits may be, they add little to online and still come across quite bland and boring. All faces are pretty generic for example and once you've seen one garish colour mix, you've seen them all. It lacks any real surprise or character, silly or not.
