    Carrer mode legend?

    Hey guys/girls just wanted to know how ppl are finding there pace in carrer compared with there team mate when playing on legend? Im slowly starting to be able to compete with them in gp mode and sometimes few tenths quicker (not often tho) but if I try in carrer Im 1-2 sec off where I need to be :( It starting to make carrer boring as on expert im lapping alonso (team mate) as he usually bout 6-8th and im leading the race yet legend he getting p2-3 most quali/races and im usually struggling to get in the top 10 as my car hasnt got the grip I need to find that much time. Ive tried different setups to give me more grip which do work but I usually end up being slower from it. I like the game but finding the advantage assists give hard to compete with when im in a under developed car (even merc) so I can either race a slow car on expert or struggle with legend? Any advice/tips for carrer mode would be appreciated as I love the game but cant keep winning on expert as it gets boring being 1-2 sec quicker than your team mate. Know some of the top guys are struggling so its not a pride thing before anyone says that as I dont care what diff I play on I just want a race where im not leading the entire race or a race where im struggling by a sec or two a lap. Not trying to sound like a ass but if playing on a control or use assists then pls dont comment as we all know how much of an advantage that is this year (grip wise) I know this has been mentioned many times but wanted to know how ppl are doing now the game has been out a week. Cheers
  2. Title says it all! I am leading singapore by 20 sec (100% race) pulling on average half a sec to the mercs behind when the rain starts coming down heavy lap 22, I put inters on lap 25 and my pace is still good (hamilton half sec quicker but matching alonso's pace) lap 30 comes and the track ready for full wets so pit for full wets and within 6 laps hamilton is right behind me :( next few laps hes on my gearbox almost pushing me out of corners he has that much grip ffs! Id understand how I was loosing so much time if I was all over the place lighting the rears up out of every corner but Im not. Ok so may not be the quickest guy in the wet but there is just no way the AI should have the grip to go 2-4 sec a lap quicker than me when on full wet tyres. Wouldnt mind so much if only say 25% of the races where wet but so far id say at least 50% of my weekends have had rain affecting quali or the race and when Im feathering the throttle just to get drive the AI floor it and drive away as if it was dry. Ive really been enjoying the game this weekend as im now winning a few races on legend (1-1.5sec off before) but when i see rain forcast for the race I know its game over and Ill struggle to match the backmarkers times. Why is it every year codies release the game where the AI are broken in the wet? Im not moaning about the lack of grip we the player have in the wet as I think it is good fun but when the AI or someone with tc is 2-4 sec a lap quicker it just becomes boring and not a challenge anymore. Before someone says it putting tc on is not a fix btw :) Ive seen alot of ppl complain about this and for me its the only GAMEBREAKING bug in the game. As soon as codies fix the problem ill be happy but with no mention of a patch yet Im left wondering how much more I can play if I keep getting rain half way through a race! Anyone know when or even if codies are going to patch the game?

    AI pace in the wet?

    After playing the game now for few days my pace is getting there in the dry and im slowly matching the legend AI (few tenths off) but when it rains I am 5 sec slower than the expert AI as I simply have no grip! It was raining in malaysia and the straight after turn 2 leading into turn 3 I would spin out if I went more than 70% throttle yet the AI just drive away no problem. I love how much slower my pace is this year in the wet as last year you didnt need any skill to drive in the wet the only problem is the AI use traction control so there is simply no way I can compete with them. I dont want to turn tc on med or full as med seems like off in last years game and on it just doesnt spin so dont know how im going to match them if it rains? Anyone else having the same problem matching there wet pace? If someone can match them and could give tips would be great as I am dreading doing a 100% race and getting lapped 5 times :(

    AI need fixing in the wet big time!

    Guys this was posted about the 2014 game nearly a year ago lol! Someone must of gone to page 200 to see it :) Agree the AI pace on 2015 is a little slow if anything.

    F1 2015 No Career mode??

    I dunno, to me it has the sort of career mode that F1 2014's career mode was criticised for on here... start wherever you like, and effectively set your own goals as there isn't much in the way of reward from the game itself. What is wrong with starting anywhere tho? I love that in a game (options) For those who want to start at the bottom they can and for those who dont want to grind through 5 years just to get to F1 they also have that option. Not being funny I just never understood the ppl who complain about having the option to start in a high team when no1 is forcing you to take that option in the first place :) Pcars still offers progress imo as I started in the enduro on my ps4 (done 3 years on xbox so didnt want to do it again) finished my first season yesterday and was only offered 2 kart and 1 lmp1 contract so its not like you start anywhere then go anywhere (next season) The goals in Pcars are actualy better than any other racing game imo as what do they offer in terms of progress? Pcars has so many different championships I plan on spending the next few years trying to comlete every one of them and winning all the invites that are also on offer.

    Cant be bothered to look through all the pages since last on here as there nothing new to read exept ppl saying they have delayed the game??? If this is true then it just goes to show what a crap company cm really are! Ive enjoyed playing there games in the past but come on what is up with the silence on hear? We get a cm employee say there will be news soon but tbh I think we will all be on the next gen of consoles by the time they give us anything. I really do hope that cm loose the licence and stop making games altogether! May sound harsh as they do make some fun games but there is never any exitment in the build up to releases exept for the promises they never seem to deliver on. Id compare cm with a Kia, does the same as any other car but feels cheap and half arsed!

    Think thats what got me thinking have they really done that much but thats simply because nothing has been explained to us. Like you say it sounds like pro mode is exactly the same as Gp mode in the other games (least we could achive the same results ourself) If it is just that (a forced mode) and adds nothing to the game why bother in the first place? Seems like a way of saying you have to play our game this way or you aint getting all practice sessions! (evil :)) I want F1 2015 to be a amazing game but all I seem to ever see is no to features ppl have asked about. I just wish cm would actualy release info that tells us why we should be exited about the game instead of saying nothing which feels a bit like a F you to the forum members. Mmpaw said some promising things in another thread so now all we need is someone from cm to show us why we should pre order 2015!

    I can see that as no1 has played 15 yet, I was talking more in general about how good the game is. Like I said in another post its more frustration that cm wont release info on a game that is out in 27 days that has got ppl talking about project cars in the first place! If I were cm and had the great game that you said they have then id be on here saying why we should be getting exited about F1 2015 instead of saying nothing at all, day by day ppl are wondering why we have nothing to talk about so surely the blame goes to cm for the way the game has been released? I come here a few times a week to see if anything new has been released but there never is. As soon as cm give the forum some info the posts will be about the 2015 game again, good or bad at least we would have something to talk about.

    Nothing wrong with talking about it on the forum. Just in the appropriate place please, so people who don't particularly want to read about it don't have to plough through it to find the on-topic stuff. Ye fair point but this is the only forum im a active member of as im sure many others are to. I only visit this site in the hope cm release info that gets me exited about the sport I love but I have nothing good to say about the 2015 release so what would you rather me post? Say nice things about Pcars and discuss the features and wow factour the game has with like minded ppl or constantly whine that cm are so shit at marketing games they give us NOTHING to talk about!!! This is the official forum for the F1 2015 game yet what info is there to find on here? Questions are never answered by a dev or mod on here either so pointless asking anything you might like to know about the game. Like I said I can see what your saying but tbh if we werent talking about a what a great game Pcars is we would all be saying how crap cm really are at marketing there product that most will have in 27 days! Just saying

    I dont get what is wrong with talking P cars on the forum, I for one was exited for F1 but since cm are so shit at making and marketing games my exitment has gone! What have they given us to talk about apart from the lack of features that were even in last years game and that had nothing new added (infact had less than 13) Every year they take features out and decide for us how we should play the game (pro mode) P cars has no limits to what can be changed in the options menu to suit the players style of gaming, maybe cm should learn from them instead of sitting on there hands and never once coming up with a wow factor for there games. I wasnt to fussed about watching F1 last weekend P cars is that good! I agree with the time taken to make the game it shouldnt have some of the silly bugs that it has but tbh the amount of fun I have when I play the game I dont care about little bugs that WILL get fixed soon unlike cm attitude to there games! Didnt even get a response for a patch for the 14 game so why do you guys think things will change? You do know they will have the same plan if they make 16, release 15 then move on to 16 like every year that has passed and you guys will moan about lack of info again! Btw does it matter if P cars doesnt feel 100% true to life (cant say myself because I wouldnt be capable of driving the cars irl the same as I can in any sim) Its a far better sim than any game that has been on console and there isnt a chance 15 will be close to what P cars offers in terms of physics so cant say P cars feels weird when we have all played/enjoyed racing with the other cm F1 games in the past! Ive can honestly say with the time I have played P cars it offers everything a console racing fan will ever need and we know more will follow in the coming months. Hope cm do have some info that will make me want to pre order but atm all my gaming time will be for Batman arkham knight and P cars :)

    Wtf still no info on a game that comes out in about 30 days! Its pretty obvious cm have nothing to show or they would of done it by now. Ive been playing P cars all weekend and wow that game is amazing, Maybe cm know they cant even come close to that game so hoping ppl will pre order and take a chance on 15 being the storm they promised :) Id guess its just shit but thats my opinion. I honestly thought this weekend we would get info as P cars is out so obviously not namco stopping any info being released either. Ill still pop back to look at the forum now and again but with P cars out I see no need to buy another half arsed game from a company who clearly dont give a fuck about the product they make!

    Not to be down on the game again but it means nothing if its on the official website as all the others were also on there website a few weeks before launch. Tbh id be suprised if fom gave a dam about the bugs and features in the previous games as why would codies be allowed to make the wheels come off a car when that is a big NO NO with the fia? Know in a game your not going to injure/kill someone but imo the whole licence is money driven and not what the finished product is. Guess we will know if codies do manage to renew next year and this years game is nothing ground breaking like many by now think it is.

    Thats what I find so frustrating with no news coming out, although Lee did say in the "2 things" thread we know everything already about single player??? Pcars is out in 10 days so imo cm have 10 days to change ppl's minds on this years game otherwise we will all be on Pcars and prob wont even care about 2015 (judging by the lack of features in the game anyway) Pcars offers everything us console players have wanted for years so why would we spend £50 to play a game that is a update to 14 and from whats been said the 14 and 15 cars but only 14 performance. What would make me want to play a game that the only thing new is commentry when I have a game that starts in karts and goes all the way to F1, has everything F1 doesnt offer by the sounds of it.

    Cheers, sure yorkie had that also but was at donington so like you said more track related.  
  15. vtidixon

    Two things

    Really? So Im guessing its exactly like 14 exept we have tv style presentetion :( No I stand corrected 14 had career and coop so It actually has less features than 14? I was hoping for news that you have made setups worth spending time making and there would be telemetry and testing r@d parts along with many more thing F1 related such as tyre temps and wear, how we manage fuel and race strategy. Honestly if thats what cm call cooking up a storm then good luck with selling the game! We have been given no info on how the AI behave and how you have improved them, no info on silly gamebreaking bugs as each game had at least 1, no info on the corner cut and collision penelty. Not having dig at you Lee but I just fail to see what info we the customer actually have about the game!

    The AI is pretty good. It's still not perfect though. It depends on the track but sometimes the AI is a little bit too aggressive and therefore too often off the track. You can get an impression here, it's the final build: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qEvuKfV2Y6w Cool vid! only watched parts but they do seem abit off track alot which I didnt notice so much in the vids I mentioned. What difficulty is that btw? I saw a post or vid saying the higher the level the more agressive the AI are so that could also have a affect on how the drive maybe? Man Im looking forward to this game tho, as a single player guy it will be so good to be overtaken by AI and be like wtf :)

    Cant say from experience mate as have only seen youtube vids but I remember not all that long ago the AI were upside down on track half the time and the other half they were just bashing each other all over the place. Id say the last month ive seen at least 10 vids that had me in shock at the AI overtaking and defending skills (for AI) as well as knowing where your car is on track :) :) Team vvv have loads of great vids showing off the game across all 3 platforms and no1 noticed a xboxone vid in with a pc (I belive) gameplay so looking good on all ends as far as I can see from the vids. The other vids I saw were from aravva and I belive its yorkie doing the driving, Very fast driver and some times hes stuck behind cars unable to get passed. Not sure if any of those issues are the ones you are refering to but should look for those guys on youtube if looking for good detailed previews/reviews on racing games (vvv anyway)

    Havent seen it confurmed anywhere myself but judging by cm refusal to anwer ppl Id put £50 on it not being in this years game esp with no carrer mode. Atm it looks like 14 will have more features than 15 :)

    Pro Season- Completely Unfair !

    Typical of cm games sadly, I have no problem with this as the pro season is how I play but for most this mode will never be used as you are limited to cockpit cam (most refuse to give up seeing as much as you do in t-cam) many use at least 1 assist (braking line is most popular with no assist users :)) and many ppl wont do a 1.5-2 hour race plus the other 5 hours needed to do a full long weekend. The AI are another thing that will stop ppl using this mode as legend is the only difficulty mode available (ffs no sliders again) and most ppl that are quick join a league as they find more of a challenge that way. What was wrong with giving ppl the option to play the game how they wanted cm? I may be in the same boat as you if the legend AI are alot quicker this year and if thats the case id be hugely dissapointed with not being able to do a game mode because im getting lapped every race. Tbh looking at the forums recently I think 2015 will be another let down when it comes to features as every question I see answered by cm is a no not this year! They wont talk about there game either so that tells me its because they have nothing really ground breaking to show us. I really hope im wrong but going of there past 5 games and what little they have replied to on the forum 15 will be nothing more than a preety update to 14 with some stupid tv style presentation that has you sitting on the grid but for some crazy reason no warm up lap. untill cm release any info/gameplay I cant see what else ppl should think by now.

    From the vids I saw months ago with the AI I was really worried as the would always just smash into one another and tbh it was worse than any online race and that is saying something lol! Ive been watching lots of vids over the last few days/weeks and have to say they now look very very good at attacking and defending and there overall pace seems like it will give the top guys a bit of a challenge unlike most racing games. All this is going of youtube vids tho so cant say for sure but on the evidence ive seen Pcars will be simply amazing :) I know they have taken there time to release the game but tbh it was prob the best thing to do as there were no decent wheels available when the consoles came out and who has the money to buy console, games, wheel and pedals all in one go? With the time they have put into the game it should be the best console racing game available with a huge selection of car classes availabe to choose from.

    F1 2015 Metal Case Edition!!!!

    Hell yeah but I got it to waste so it's no problem. If I don't like them I can just throw them all away or give them to the charity shop.   Still a waste of money... for a game. I got me a $24,000 D-Box formula full motion simulator... but guess what i race in real life for a living. I would never waste that much on gaming even with the kind of money i make.... even if i had all the money in the world... i would rather give that cash to charity that might put it to much better use, then a stupid thrown away game. Kids do not know the value of money these days.   Not sure if being serious but if you are how can you spend $24,000 to play a game then mock someone who spends less than 10%  of that to do exactly what you are doing? Ppl who play sims on pc need to realise the PLAYING A SIM part. Hell I could take off in a boieng 747 on my old flight sim but never once did I think I was a pilot or capable of being one. Ive spent at least £3000 in the last 5 years on wheels, pedals, rigs and dont see 1 penny as a waste of money. My mates who go out drinking every fri sat night and blow £150 are the ones wasting there money imo!

    Tbh think most are looking forward to pcars :) with pcars coming first does make me wonder how well F1 will do as the casuals will surely go for the game that offers more and that is hands down pcars, Might explain why codies are keeping quiet as they have no info to give, or least what most of us would want. For about a week now ive seen mmpaw asking about the practice sessions being available in both game modes yet not 1 cm employee is willing to answer him, same as confurming no career mode and a patch for 14 now I think of it lol! Honestly dont know why I spend so much time on this forum looking for info when there is no info anyways.

    Ye same here mate, have no idea what it offers or the type of game it will be but just from that 1 vid things look good for a fun game with mind blowing graphics. I know a vid shows nothing really about the way the game feels to play but it can show us alot about the product we are buying and is enough for most to decide whether they want to pre order or not. Just spent an hour looking at posts on here and cant see no info about F1 and all the cm employees seem to have vanished yet again. Does look like 2015 will be a big year for great games! The game thats got me most exited (on a pad) is the last of the batman games, cant wait to see what they do with that although the whole batmobile gameplay looks really dull so just hope its not a big part of the game.

    That game looks amazing! I was never a huge star wars fan but that might have to go on the pre order list. I cant think of any other game company that doesnt give any info or pics this close to release and im sure I seen some cm employee say maybe nothing next week either but might be wrong on that? Thats whats getting me thinking its going to be 14 all over again, Announce the game then few weeks later some press previews which told us very little and now every thing is top secret again. Maybe most would disagree but Id be happy (for now) with just some new screen shots every few days and a mod on here answering some questions on here about them but even thats to much for cm when it comes to advertising the games they spend all year making.
