    ERS Deployment - F1 2020

    Who makes the decision at codemasters anyway? I have to say this is one of the worse decision's ever. Give the people who like to change ERS the ability to run a manual system one change per lap if needs be as said by @ChasteWand. I know your trying to cater to people who drive like fisher price but still. It's an insult to user's who spend £100's on racing systems

    F1® 2020 | First Gameplay Trailer

    I have to say the games promising but I'm disappointed at the lack of localized weather. The system is to easy to predict unrealistic and looks like somebody used photo shop to create it. We need the spray drying racing line after a shower and puddles that destabilise the car similar to forza would be more welcome realistic.

    Dropping from 100% to 50% Races

    Same here. I reckon some don't like it as it requires a lot of mental concentration. Something some people don't really want to do. I love racing around Monaco in the wet or Singapore in a late eighties car as it's a real challenge like cycling 26 miles as I call around the block.

    So Dirt 5 is next gen but not F1 2020

    More than likely I imagine it will be the same as the last time. PS4 and Xbox one came out in Xmas 2013 the last game for PS3 Xbox 360 was F1 '14. F1 2015 was the first for that (xbox one PS4) generation. We'll probably see F1 2022 to be the first game on the new gen. Makes sense as the new rules will be introduced by then

    F1® 2020 | Spain Hotlap

    In F1 2019 last year PC had a system where you could move lap time counter, speedometer, number of laps etc around the screen. From what I remember in a forum post I think (not sure) codemasters said it's something were looking into for consoles but it's not guaranteed is there any news on that?

    (Suggestion) Extra down shift

    If you increased the gearbox wear for abusing it? Would that make no difference?

    Classic car Tier selection

    Good question project cars 2 has it in there I think? The first project cars game doesn't have it.

    Classic car Tier selection

    I've played around with classic cars for a while now. How come you don't allow the host the choice of what classic cars the player's chooses from? For example If I wanted to host play, an early ninety's race I wouldn't be allowed or able to restrict players from choosing the 1998 McLaren although it's an early nineties race. There's no options for the host in the lobby to play around with. In the classic cars section. You have options to restrict assists but not classic car choice based on classic car tier/class in C1 C2 or C3 can you look into adding this for F1 2020 options menu for lobby host online @BarryBL it would be appricated and classic races a bit more fun instead of people always picking the fastest tiered car when available.

    Classic car Tier selection

    That's not exactly what I'm getting at. Instead what I'm trying to say is single class (C2) or (C1) or (C3) by itself for example Allowing the host to enable/disable certain cars within that class so players can use the Williams fw14b and the McLaren 1991 car only for an early nineties race. Instead of current system of full choice or RESTRICTED to one car access of the entire class. So in other words if I wanted to host an early 2000's F1 car race. I can disable the late 2000's cars from the host's menu so players have the option to pick early 2000's F1 cars ONLY People can pick different cars like the early 2000's Willams and Ferrari. Instead of what we have now full choice or being forced onto a grid of only one car in that class. It gives players choice of a car from that part of the decade. Early or late. As well as the current system of full choice or restricted to one car only in that specific class Give the host of an online session more option's to play around with in the classic car class lobby. I hope you understand

    F1® 2020 | Announce Trailer

    They can't even simulate complex weather pattern's correctly. FYI @BarryBL codemasters had localized weather in F1 2012 I recommend you try it in dynamic conditions if you have a copy of the game. It's asking a lot given the age. What was great about that system it kept the player guessing what tyres to be on sometimes it was impossible to tell. So if sector three or one was wet the other two sectors were dry. When the cars started going over the racing line they created a drying line after a shower. You could go on dry tyre's half way through intermediate conditions on slicks just as long you stuck on the racing line. Stray away from the racing line and you aquaplane off the track or spin. The last few games are too predicable with weather doesn't even feel realistic because as soon as DRS is disabled/enabled that marks the changeover point making it easier to notice.

    F1 2021 ideas

    Include all the little things we had during the Xbox 360 PS3 gen we don't have now. Localized weather the same as F1 2012, The increased pitlane time in 2010 for speeding in the pitlane on full throttle, 75% race distance F1 2010, Classic tracks F1 2013, Red flags, Online game stability netcode, framerate, when lobbies are full. AI driver mistakes F1 2012 this was more evident in wet weather conditions. If you can't do any of these things. Then give the license to somebody else since so called CODEMASTERS are incapable of providing a stable game that keeps the person engaged while racing.

    Wow that's yet another thing people have waited for since the Xbox 360 PS3 gen to be re-introduced into the game. And yet no answer

    F1® 2020 | Announce Trailer

    Question is how many of those testers will want to actually fix the games problems. Comparing to those who upload the content to their youtube channel just to gain views with clickbait titles? I think dedicated servers are a must for any racing game. Although given their reputation they would find away of un-optimizing the game properly. I remember the first esports event in F1 2017 I think. The game was so poor their was lag (or could possibly have been framerate drops) ON A LAN. Personally from what another user said here a while back a full rewrite of their EGO engine (or whatever it's called now) is sorely needed.

    F1® 2020 | Announce Trailer

    Pretty much hit the nail on it's head. I've been waiting since F1 2012 for old features to reappear like the weather system but since they botched jobbed their game engine in preparation for the new consoles with barebones F1 2015 & I've been paying for it ever since then. If it wasn't for racing online with good friends that I know for a laugh I wouldn't bother with this overpriced so called simcade game. Nobody can say I haven't been patient.

    F1 2020 Original vs Post-Covid Season

    Short answer No

    F1® 2020 | Announce Trailer

    I hope this isn't the case but I'd take it if only the made the weather system more unpredictable for players in changeable conditions.
  17. Well after watching the trailer I'm happy the Jordan 191 is in the game (Last time was F1 2004) Best to reserve judgement until we see something better. Unpredictable weather patterns, drying lines, classic circuits, red flags, Co-op etc

    F1 2020 game release date

    One thing I'd like to know since were talking about 2020 is does codemasters plan or have the PS5, Xbox Series 10 devkit's to optimize the game once their released?
  19. Chromatic

    F1 2020 game release date

    That's scarily accurate. Anyway with everywhere shut due to the Chinese flu. I'd be surprised any information comes to light before May. With a release date before September.

    What F1 2020 desperately needs

    I'd be willing to sacrifice sound if the weather system wasn't to scripted. We need a dynamic racing line system where if you gamble after a rain shower with dry tyres it may or may not pay off. The current system is all to predicable
  21. Race start from the pitlane exit off the grid for changing tyre pressures and chamber NOTHING ELSE Suspension, diff, etc after qually

    [Career] - Safety Car

    You wont have the safety car deploy 5-8 laps before the end it has to pick up the leader pickup the rest of the field and bunch them up before sector three. Before it can return to the pits it worked in this way since it was brought in for F1 2011

    Feedback and ideas for F1 2020

    Why no safety car(or VSC) this accident!?

    Thanks for the post. It looks promising although it's not worth getting my hopes up right now for a patch which might not make that much difference to the game as it is. I'm a bit skeptical but hopefully they can prove me wrong.

    Why no safety car(or VSC) this accident!?

    Codemasters don't believe the safety car exists. What gets to me personally is the so called support longer in a games lifespan than before while the truth of it is lies from Lee mather. And other's to cover up the half baked development we have to suffer each year on release.
