  1. Am currently towards the back end of season 2, and can imagine I will be doing the same tbh. In S1, I focussed on resource point and money generation (facilitated by acclaim for sponsor slots), as much as I could; got the first level for attributes for all my facilities, as well as maxed out driver perks. In S2, things really kicked up a gear and I went from 6th fastest car to first in the 17 races so far. I might reduce the rate resource points etc are dished out next time start a MyTeam game (or adjust in my current save), but really I’m using this an entertaining proving grou
  2. So I’m about to go into Q2 for the US Grand Prix, and have a interesting scenario I need some advice on. My current (and only functioning) energy storage unit (had one fail on me earlier in the season), is now 75% worn. Going into Q1, I take a new energy storage unit and incur a 10 place grid penalty for the race - fine. I qualified P1 in Q1 (so my pace is good) and given I will have the 10 place grid penalty, want to start on the mediums to run longer into the race. Should I run Q2 with mediums or softs? Whatever position I finish in Qualy, my starting grid position will be out
  3. Good point I hadn’t factored that in. I guess I see the upgrading of facilities as buying the machines/ equipment/ space etc to be able to produce better or more parts, but I would still imagine there is a raw materials and transformation cost of development though - that was more of what I was alluding to with the suggestion.
  4. Pretty simple really - the title says it all. R&D developments and new engine parts should cost money, in addition to any resource points used. Could be a great addition to the game or future titles. Thoughts? 🖖🏽
  5. Hi all, Am curious to know which answers in interviews help acclaim? I note they fall broadly into 3 categories; “look at me/I’m the best”, political/corporate and “I blame my team/team department”. I pretty much always answer with a political/ corporate answer, is this the best kind? Or should I go for more “look at me” responses? I guess blaming the team/department will effect acclaim negatively (as well as causing other negative effects). Curious to hear about your experiences 🖖🏽
  6. I don’t follow; are you saying the percentages shown are overall acclaim when comparing to the maximum available. So my team, driver and 2nd driver are at 48, 32 and 16 out of 100 respectively. There are no indicators to show how much acclaim gained or lost in the session? Still confusing though - it doesn't make sense to have both levels and percentages (to me at least). It would be better if they showed the % change if acclaim gained/lost, of that level, as a percentage. Begs another question as well; is team acclaim not independent of the driver percentages? Why then is there a fa
  7. Hi all, What are the yellow percentages shown in the acclaim screen at the end of Qualy/race? In the example attached (end acclaim position), I get the 32 and 16 make 48, but for each % shown the respective acclaim did not; - change by the yellow % shown - correlate to what the starting acclaim (before it was awarded/ taken away - my bar did not change by 32%, more like 5%) - correlate to the end acclaim position (as clearly shown). Confused - can anyone shed some light on this for me? Is this a bug? Edit: should have added the below was in version 1.09.
  8. You CAN change your “Charlie”… BUT unfortunately you can only do it if you discard all changes and create a new MyTeam game BEFORE the bit where you pick your team name. It’s immediately after specifying all your career and simulation settings etc. I found this out as I binned my first go of MyTeam to start another and all of a sudden there was a different face and different voice for my “Charlie”. So I repeated the process above until I was happy. There are 3 voices and 5 faces as far as I can tell, although I agree with you; would be good to have a lady and the ability to choose th
  9. He got really excited in my last race as I passed everyone from 10th as they were in the pits; “you’re in first place, well done!” (or something like that)… I still had my stop to come… Cheers Jeff, cheers… 🤦🏽‍♂️ I will say though he does seem to restrain himself from providing positive feedback once an overtake is done, (“you’re up a place, well done” etc), until I’m on some kind of straight… shame he can’t show the same restraint when coming on the radio to tell me some useless information mid-corner… causing me to bin it 🤦🏽‍♂️
  10. Agree. It’s something that has been asked for multiple times in the suggestions area. There must be some way they can leverage data from time trial and race pace programs to help “smooth” the inconsistencies (see my linked comment below). My feeling is they’ve feared this based on F1 driver times as opposed to the user base times and ability. It’s mad I win races easily at some tracks and then struggle to break into top 10 at others with the same AI level. There are some AI difficulty calculators you can use to help smooth that difficulty, but then it’s up to the individual
  11. For anyone that might be interested; I managed to reinstall the game and applied the save game without issue, but unfortunately my issue still exists. And the new patch has not resolved the issue either 😭
  12. Should have also mentioned TV is non-HDR.
  13. This is a good point. I usually play on MyTeam and in the first season the car was unstable in the rear through faster corners so I adjusted suspension, ARB, camber and toe. And I had to be much more cautious with the throttle (a bit of lifting doesn’t hurt too much). Tyre wear was higher for sure. In season two with upgraded parts I could lessen these to more of what I’d expect, and apply more throttle easily and tyre wear also improved.
  14. To clarify the videos I took with my phone were 4K 60fps - I haven’t downloaded them directly from console as it were. Although it is slightly older, TV is a regular 1080p, and can manage up to 100hz. Video output from console is set to automatic. I have tried setting it to 720 and am getting the same results. Had no issues like this on 2020, and am getting no issues on other “fast moving” games such as first person shooters. I should have also said that I’ve turned motion blur off (same as 2020), camera shake is default.
  15. Thanks Barry - really appreciate it
  16. Hi @BarryBL, have managed to upload the videos to iCloud. Original post has amended to include these links which will expire on 05/10.
  17. Hi @BarryBL, Any further update for me on this? I have a bit more information for you and have updated the original post with it. I deleted and reinstalled the game today but the issue is still there. Please do have a look and do let me know what I can do to help you further.
  18. So you can add to the report that you even tried reinstalling it... Yep - it’s my last resort. Not getting much back from the devs to date.
  19. Are you having similar issues? Curious to know why you asked.
  20. I’m having a lot of screen tearing that is visible in the environmental graphics (trees, stands, barriers etc) and graphics being a bit more jagged/ laggy during gameplay - it’s more prevalent when there’s a lot of “action” happening in the race; I’m coming up to other cars/ other cars are coming close to me (within a 1-2 second window either way), and during the pit stop “windows” when everyone is pitting. Also when the race is won by the leader and I’m completing my final lap (s). The graphics are also strained consistently when I have the MFD open (the new tyre wear “damage” pop up is a rea
  21. Ah OK, I’ve uploaded a save game. Deleting and reinstalling the game 🤞🏽
  22. Been having some issues with gameplay graphics so am seriously considering deleting and reinstalling the game. Will I lose my save games and pitcoin purchases?
  23. I agree, the game does “things”. I’ve had drivers have mechanical faults right in front of me and swerve in front of me when exiting fast corners, safety cars that put me at a disadvantage etc etc
