    Pressure should be on to add new tracks

    You equivocated developing circuits for a video game, something that has been done many times before by many different developers for many different games, to developing a vaccine for covid and putting a man on mars. Totally ridiculous.

    What would I search to find that? I'm not asking rhetorically. Free free to link the relevant post if you have one.

    What if the poll was "would you pay 20 dollars for a DLC that includes four new tracks." All of sudden it's not the same as asking if people want free ice cream, is it?

    You keep making false equivalencies and extremely hyperbolic statements. I would define that as disingenuous.

    Something like, "We acknowledge that circuits are a significant element of the content we offer in our game, and expending on that element when possible is something we consider important and valuable to our customer base", would be a much better response than "it simply can't be done".

    Lol I'm not sure if making tracks and team color customization would ever be at odds with each other, but to each his own.

    You are completely entitled to voice your opinions about what you want, and the fact that it differs from what I want is completely fine. The things that I want and the things that you want do not have to be at odds with each other.

    People have not given any actual insight in this thread, because they are not in a position to have any actual insight. But go back and read the original post, I updated it.

    We are the customer, it's our job to put pressure on them and tell them what we want. I never said anything about it being for free. What Lee Mather said should not be taken at face value. His role in interviews is to market the game, not to plan or do the actual development work. He also said that laser scanned tracks were not as accurate as the ones in the game, which doesn't help his credibility. His comment was very shallow and sounded very much like trying to set expectations as low as possible, rather than a deeply informed statement. I stand by my original comment that "it's just not possible" is not a reasonable response. It is possible. Perhaps very difficult, but not impossible.

    Thank you for being a reasonable human being instead of a fanatical Codemasters apologist.

    I don't know how much is involved actually, I shouldn't be making statements about the logistics.

    Are you familiar with the fast/cheap/good triangle?

    They got the licences for the current 22 tracks, they can get other licences. I'm not sure why you would equate having four completely new tracks in the game to a one night stand. We would all benefit from many nights of entertainment from this. If budget is an issue, make it a DLC. And what is stopping them from getting the licences for more tracks? They had to get 22 licences for the game as is, they can get more if they make it a priority. I expect them to hire more people and spend more money to make it happen. If they need to sell it as a DLC, that's fine. I would gladly pay for it. Refusing to do it outright is a ridiculous position for them to take.

    With today's news that the Nurgburgring, Portimao, and Imola are set to be added to the 2020 F1 calendar, the total number of tracks in the 2020 Formula 1 championship that are currently not represented in the F1 2020 game rises to four (4). In order for the game to adequately represent the 2020 F1 season, developing and adding these tracks should be a top priority. Questions about the addition of new tracks to the game have been met with comments about the extensive time and manpower needed to make this a reality. This should not be an excuse. Codemasters hold the exclusive rights to the F1 franchise. To show that they are deserving of that honor, they need to dedicate the time, money, and manpower to get these tracks into the game. Edit 2: I realize that making definitive statements about the feasibility of adding new tracks isn't reasonable (or the un-feasibility, as some of you seem to think you have so much inside knowledge about). Feasibility isn't really the most important thing in this discussion and I should not have made that a part of the original post. The most important thing is letting it be known that having more tracks in the game is something I value a lot. Codemaster's response to this should not be to dismiss the idea and say that it simply cannot be done (and why some of you are so quick to furiously defend them on this, I do not understand. It's like a cult in here). The first thing they should be saying is, "We'll see what we can do". Maybe new circuits will not make it into F1 2020, but they should at least be exploring the possibility, scoping out the requirements. There is still the possibility that tracks outside the normal calendar (whether new or classic) could make it into future games. That will only happen if Codemasters see that there is sufficient desire for it. Instead of clamoring to say how impossible or unreasonable it is to have more tacks, why not say, yes, we would like more tracks. Full stop. Let them worry about the logistics.
