    Patch 1.05. Is Safety Car working now?

    Yeah you need to keep your time delta at a positive value if you do this you won't get penalised. Basically the best way to do this is just take it easy (like you might do for a race at Monaco 😛) and mayb eturn the engine down to lean and ERS to 0 and save them for when you can start attacking again once the SC period is over

    Regulation change for next year R&Ds

    Yeah they can be announced at different times as it happens also on 2018 too. I remember on one of Aarava's vids they were announced at Singapore on my 2018 career they were announced in Japan but I think the general rule is if you want to protect components it's best to start saving up once you get to the summer break .That way you should be able to save enough points to protect what you have. Or at leas t the majority of it. But then that depends on how severe the changes are each season.

    patch 1.05 ruined AI

    Indeed in fact I'd say they're slightly more aggressive because they were almost performing like 2013's AI the way they were hitting me in Hungary though it may partly have been the new wet weather pace given it was a wet race. But again this is in F2 not F1 so not sure if that makes a difference as I was playing an F2 championship

    Girlfriend attempts time trials 😂

    Everyone's got to start somewhere I started off in racing games by learning to drive Monza. Monza and the old Hockenheim I think it was (the one that went through the forest.) 2 iconic tracks.
  5. Oh I don't know one thing I have noticed a lot in vids is Ricciardo does seem to like his divebombs up the inside much like his real life counterpart.

    The Game Thread!

    So has anyone had any weird transfers in their careers yet? I've not started mine yet but I'm looking forward to seeing how mine plays out.

    Anyone else despise Monaco?

    I can barely tolerate doing 20 laps around the place don't think I'd have the patience to do the better part of 80 Yeah it's a track that rewards patience on these games. On most tracks you can create your own opportunities whereas at Monaco you really have to wait for them.

    Anyone else despise Monaco?

    Yeah I don't like i ttha tmuch usually I just turn the AI down and just do my best really though I've just won the 2 races there in my F2 championship. I've always struggled there in Codies games but previous t otha I did OK. I do win occasionally there but njot often enough to really boast about. But for me it's the same at Suzuka I've always struggled at the more narrow twistier tracks.

    Who is gonna start a new career after performance update?

    Well I might have already started one by then but it depends on how much longer it takes because tbh I'm not as bothered about the performance order as others are. I just enjoy racing these cars I've just been to busy with other things is the main reason for my delay in starting. Though I got to admit I'm not a big fan of my saves being corrupt4ed and it sounds like the kind of patch that might do that so maybe my delay in starting career might actually end up being a good thing even if slightly unintentional.

    Who is gonna start a new career after performance update?

    Yeah it is difficult to get things like that right. It's possible they'll attempt a fix going forward into F1 2020 but I don't expect anything except maybe an off option being added for those that are taking issue over the transfers so the ycan be turned off for those that don't want It in their games. But I think it's too connected to the players contract system to be able to do anything more atm because whenever the player is looking at improving their contracts it looks like every other driver on the grid is as well so I think the only way they can cut it back is to redo the contract system so we have 1 mid season window and one end of season window like we had in F1 2016/17 Neither have I mainly due to not having much of a chance to start one yet but I don' t think it'll be much longer before I'm lining up on the grid in Melbourne in one. I have finished my 2016 career now so that's freed me up to start a 2019 one when I'm ready so now I'll be alternating between careers on 2017, 18 and 19 now

    50% career mode Williams gear box last only 3 races

    Not necessarily have you got any durability upgrades for it? Because if you don't look after the components or you don't have the durability upgrades they can wear faster. In my last season on my F1 2017 career for example on my Mercedes I was going through gearboxes every 4 races it's just something that can happen. I did have to take a couple of penalties due to it but at the end of the day that can happen. I am hoping it won't happen in my next season though now that I have some more durability on it.

    Regulation Change (bug?)

    No you have to repurchase the upgrades you want to keep before you leave Abu Dhabi at the end of the season otherwise you lose them. As far as I know the only warning you get is the bit where Carl goes listen up guys I've had it confirmed that the rules are changing next season or words to that effect. That was the case in 201 8and although I've not played 2019's career yet I assume that's the case there too based on Aarava's vids I've seen so far.

    Changing weekend tyre allocation broken

    Yeah you can only do that at the start of a race weekend as the next one is loading up.

    R and D

    That depends on how many points you choose to save up if you're just throwing upgrade after upgrade a the car you don't have enough. Personally I stop upgrading once I hit the summer break(after Hungary) so I can save some points for the change then depending on how severe the changes are figure out what I want to do from there

    R and D

    I think I remember seeing a few complaints that it was to slow which is why they just changed it back and added the rule changes which I think is a decent compromise as it keeps things interesting and keeps things mixed up. I wasn't one of them as I didn't mind the grind being a mostly RPG type player these days and you do have to grind a lot in those sorts of games but I can see why the slower speed irritated some. But I think the rule change idea is a decent compromise as it ensures that no t all teams will ever be maxed out making suer tha there'll always b someone somewhere on the grid that'll need to improve depending on how the 10 seasons play out.
