    Simulating race in career

    Simulating sessions always gives you a bad result. It is a known issue and until it is fixed it’s not worth simulating races.
  3. Regardless if it’s an obvious bug or not providing more info helps. It’s happened to me too especially annoying since it was in Hungary where I got myself a good higher downforce set up only to be forced into something that’s more suitable for Monza I didn’t notice before parc ferme and that was the race ruined. I always double check now to make sure it doesn’t happen again. Also in career mode and it happened to me way before the latest patch so it’s not that. Could this potentially be moved into the technical forum @Hoo?

    About patch 1.10

    And that’s the problem, people buy it regardless. This is the only game which allows us to experience the real F1. A lot of the complaints are exaggarated but stuff like compatible wheels not working as they should, the safety car being barely functional and a flaky multiplayer system should all be fully functional when the game is released. Bugs are just part of programming and no game is ever released totally bug free but what we should expect is for all the key aspects to have no issues.

    Thanks for everything you have done @Faya. 😊 All the best for the future!

    This is getting ridiculous.

    I’m baffled as to why they made a blog post about it. No idea why it was called a patch as opposed to an update since it’s just DLC’s. The fact people expect the F2 update this month has meant it has resulted in more disappointed and angry people than usual.

    Career mode. (How's everyone getting on)

    Season 3 - Germany I’ll try and keep it brief and just give a summary Started at Racing Point and finished 7th in the championship with a couple of podiums and 1 win thanks to a timely safety car allowing me to outsmart the AI by changing to dry tyres at the crossover point. 2 transfers in Japan with Hamilton and Leclerc swapping which kind of ruined the championship since Hamilton was leading so IRL Merc would never let him switch with 4 races to go. Hamilton won it comfortably in the dominant Ferrari. Season 2 moved to Mercedes to partner Leclerc and Bottas moved to Red Bull triggering about 10 other transfers. Started off average got a win at Monaco and a couple of other podiums and got 2 more wins back to back in Singapore and Russia. Then the Weber and Butler effect took hold and I was unable to compete for podiums with the rapid development of the other teams so I saved my resource points for the regulation change and some upgrades ahead of season 3. Finished 3rd in the championship behind the Ferrari’s of Hamilton and Vettel with Hamilton winning it again. Season 3 stayed at Mercedes with a few more transfers most notably Butler to Ferrari, Weber to Haas , Hamilton and Verstappen both in the dominant McLaren. First 5 races all on the podium with a win in Bahrain then won again in Britain taking my win total up to 6 wins so far. Verstappen is dominant and I’m second in the championship with me Haas and McLaren very close in the R&D so will hopefully be able to continue to fight for the championship. TL;DR - Season 1 Racing Point best of the rest, Season 2 Mercedes best of the rest behind Ferrari, Season 3 good start fighting for championship. 😄

    Where is the 1.10 patch?

    The original ETA was September so I’d say in the next 2-3 weeks.

    Tire Temp Model Reverted to 2018?

    It’s a fix. The handling between pad and wheel is different which meant that the carcass temperatures sky rocket for pad players so after 4-5 laps of a stint you’re no longer competitive. Keeping them optimal removes that so I don’t see the problem and if that’s not realistic then surely you’d have a wheel for realism anyway.
  11. I haven't been able to play the game since the latest patch which included changes to the R&D. What exactly has been changed to slow it down and increase the longevity of the game?

    Codemasters ist [Removed]

    I don’t think this one needs a translation lol

    F2 feature race stragety

    You’re missing the point. The feature race allows drivers to start on either the option or prime tires which gives the race strategy as come drivers do a long first stint whilst others do a short first stint. In the game everyone starts on the same tires which removes any element of strategy.

    F1 2020 - Things to make the game better

    Better implementation of F2. Adding in F3 for a full Road to F1 story mode that goes into F1 rather than just repetative interview snippets. More scenario based cut scenes like in this year’s F2 since that really puts you in the shoes of your driver. More R&D upgrades which can increase the longevity of career mode instead of having the teams maxed out after 3 of the 10 seasons. Also like you said smarter AI is key because the true immersion is when it feels you’re racing against actual drivers not just some computers.
  15. Seems fine to move to Ferrari since you’re outperforming the car unless you want the challenge of moving away unto McLaren or Renault. I was very tempted myself at the end of season 1 but decided to stay in the academy.

    How has R&D been changed?

    Well I’m on Russia in Season 2 and the upgrade rate is faster than ever I’ve gone from 2nd to 5th in the performance chart and this is the first time I’m struggling to keep up with the upgrades although I am allocating some resource points to adapt parts ahead of next season’s regulation change so it might balance out before the start of Season 3.
  17. From my experience the reputation with your current team so Alfra Romeo will drop significantly but it should stay unaffected with the others. Having said that I have stayed within the academy “family” for mine so it might be different but I doubt it. How well are you doing in regards to the car performance? I wouldn’t worry too much about realisticity in terms of replacing a driver which is doing well and doesn’t deserve replacing since driver transfers will more than likely make sure of that anyway.

    Tire Temp Model Reverted to 2018?

    setting it to surface only in the gameplay settings instead of simulation (surface + carcass) seems to work fine for me

    Tire Temp Model Reverted to 2018?

    discountinued? but it’s there as an option

    Tire Temp Model Reverted to 2018?

    Have you got the tyre temp set to surface only?

    How has R&D been changed?

    Managed to do a couple of races and haven’t noticed any real change but they did say it will take longer to notice if you’r further into your career so I guess halfway through season 2 counts as “further”. In regards to the off topic wet weather debate I find pace on inters isn’t that OP and I manage to stick with the AI but it’s harder in the full wets but I haven’t had many full wet races. So either I’m better in the wet than I thought or everyone here is running near max difficulty. My main issue is the AI make 0 errors and always get the perfect traction whereas we get wheelspin and lose time. I just hope they don’t change it back to prepatch it’s no fun being seconds a lap faster I prefer a battle than waltzing to a podium undeservingly.

    How has R&D been changed?

    Seems like another backwards move then. Essentially means the player is guaranteed to take the team to the top by upgrading faster than the AI. The speed of development was the real issue and judging by this that hasn’t been addressed.

    Tyre life in qualifying programme

    Should be doable using medium ERS whilst turning it up to high or overtake on the straights?

    Why do we start from far back? [IMAGE]

    Ah the MotoGP simulator I see.. (look up 2018 Argentinian GP for reference)

    No you can’t and you know that. What a pointless thread
