    Ea sports it’s in the game

    Crossplay. Dedicated servers.
  2. 1. A detailed description of the issue. Please include any error codes here. Brake boards are missing in Montreal on the left side before the last chicane (a.k.a. wall of champions) To be absolutely precise the 150m and 100m boards are missing in online mode. The 50m board is there. 2. Platform PC 3. What version of the game you are using (Shown on the start screen in the bottom left corner of the screen) 1.05 1.06 1.07 4. Game-mode? online The brake boards are present in time trial/career 5. What are your replication numbers? Minimum test attempts are 4. Please also add EXACT replication steps for us to try too. at least 10 6. What troubleshooting have you attempted? Please always try to attempt to fix the issue i rubbed my eyes 🙂 7. What peripherals are you are using (gamepad, wheel make & model etc) Logitech G29 8. Any screenshots or video of the issue? If the video is long, please include a timestamp for when the issue appears. I attached 2 screenshots, one in offline and one in online mode. The problem is clearly visible.
  3. These are two of best classic tracks in existence. Now they are part of the official F1 calendar. Please Codmasters, include them in F1 2021 and make a dream come true 🙂
  4. Before the last update to the skill rating system I had virtually given up on playing ranked. Having read the changes I decided to give it one last try. Here are my observations: * The end of race skill points given seem fair now. It highly correlates with my race performance. If I crash out of a race due to bad driving or others hitting me, the points lost now are nowhere near as much as before. * Safety rating of S basically guarantees you will be up against fair racers. I did more than 10 ranked races in a row in a lobby where everyone had S rating without getting rammed or pushed out of the track once. All overtakes I performed were perfectly in line with the rules, nobody behaved dangerously. Also, the guys who overtook me always acted reasonably and gave me enough space. * Reached Gold skill rating in 2 days All in all, the skill rating system is working as it should now. The safety rating system serves its purpose. Ranked races are fun at last! Well done, Codies. Please keep the current system intact in F1 2020, as well!
  5. If somebody from the Codemasters team responsible for the multiplayer part of the game could share their thoughts on the issues discussed here that would be very much appreciated. After all the game is made for us, the players if I'm not mistaken. The players have voiced their concerns, it's time to hear the developers' opinion!

    Cockpit Cam Halo Transparency 2019

    The transparency of the HUD elements can already be individually adjusted. Could this be maybe extented to the halo itself?
  7. Hey guys, I posted a topic about this issue in F1 2018 Back then it attracted no attention. Since there is a heated discussion now, let me repost what I wrote back then, I think it's every bit as relevant now. I have played a fair bit with the game since release both online/offline and I feel the newly introduced superlicence/safety rating system desperately needs some improvement. In my experience the most common safety rating is D. The share of D rated players has been gradually increasing since release. Why is that? Because a growing majority of F1 gamers are becoming ramming idiots? Not at all. I think the reason for that is the penalty system being too harsh. Apart from obvious bugs (addressing which is not the goal of this topic) what changes the safety rating? * Your safety rating goes up if you race without penalties * Your safety rating goes down if you receive penalties. How can you receive penalties? There are 3 main sources (yes there are others like jumping the start, not following safety car properly but I am just focusing on the significant ones) * crashing with other cars * leaving the track/corner cutting * exceeding the pit lane speed limit  Now if you get penalties for any of these your safety rating will worsen after the race. Let's talk about the first one, crashing. Yes, people often get unjustified penalties because the game cannot decide who's at fault when somebody crashes into another player or it's lag/desync related. Let's face it there's no real chance the game can be a fair judge of that. But rammers will still be involved in a lot of crashes, clean racers will be involved in much less so in the long run rammers should have a far worse safety rating than clean racers. So getting safety rating penalties for crashing is (in the long run) OK.  What about the other two? We all know that on most of the tracks it is almost impossible to do a full race without accidentally cutting a few corners under strict rules. I did a 25% Montreal race yesterday where I cut turn 4 three times, touched nobody during the whole race and my safety rating decreased afterwards despite being a respectful driver. When you run off track that's not disrespecting other drivers, that's misjudging a corner, your speed, your tires etc. If you get a time penalty for these actions that's a completely rightful penalty in my view. But you don't have to get a downgrade in your safety rating! Same with speeding in the pit lane. What does it have to do with my honest and respectful racing? Nothing. If I miss the pit lane entry speed limit, a 5 second penalty is just enough. I didn't endanger anyone on track. Conclusion The problem of the safety rating system is that only the first main cause of penalties is related to clean racing / fair play. The safety rating should only depend on contact with other cars. The other rule violations are adequately penalisad in race and the race end results already reflect that. The current too harsh system sends a lot of clean racers to category D who then have to play together with the real rammers. Codemasters, would you please consider altering the safety rating system?

    Cockpit Cam Halo Transparency 2019

    OP did a fantastic job. The presentation of the idea is top notch. I fully support the transparent halo!
  9. This is a truly remarkable observation. I felt something was off but now I realise this was it. I hope CM will deal with the issue.
