    You can adjust the saturation and sensistivity of the loadcell in the options menu so that you don't have to push that hard. How heavy is the load cell? I have a 20kg version, but I am on a Playseat F1 so that's different in that perspective. I also fixed the pedal plate so it doesn't flex. never want to go back from loadcell to standard haha

    ABS on vs off

    The standard conical mod doesn't give the feeling in brake pedal that a loadcell does. Loadcell works with "muscle memory" so it gives more "feeling" under braking.

    ABS on vs off

    Before i used a loadcell for braking, i locked up always because of the lack of feel on braking. I have a t3pa, and the mod didn't work as good as a loadcell. Since using that, braking improved significantly. Trailbraking is what improves a lot because with abs you just ram on the pedal until you stop, without, you start braking hard in the beginning, but ease of when starting a corner, thus taking more momentum and speed with you in the corner, in stead of braking hard and hoping for the best. without abs you have more "feel" for the corner and braking zones, and making your corner entry much smoother and with more linear speed then with abs, because with abs you tend to overthrottle the car in corner because of lack of entry speed

    Those delta's i already use, however car in front can also be a backmarker when you are leading. i meant the delta below the gear indicator, I don't always get the same values. fuel packets need to be extended with more info indeed.

    Crash Physics (here me out here)

    What about the rear of the car? Or some piece of the floor missing after contact which screws up the race? Rear wing broken, diffuser damaged, driveshaft broken after contact with the barrier? Just a few things which do still happen and are deciders to end your race or make you work even harder to finish strong. THAT'S how it should be. Look at hamilton at australia this year, a little piece of the floor missing, 2 seconds a lap GONE! Still he finished 2nd, but he had to work for it. Or Monaco, Lewis on mediums, Max on hard, he won, but he said it was the hardest race ever. That's how you should feel if you gave it your evrything amd then get the best result possible. That's realism. That's how it is in real life, so why not in the game? Most realistic ever right? Make damage and failures possible. I would love it! How sick must I feel when racing good, and suddenly my car blows up? Or someone hits me and I lose seconds a lap? I want to feel like i gave it my everything in every circumstance, just a hard AI isn't enough, luck should also be a factor. Getting message that you lose power and they're not sure if you finish the race, and you adapt to that, drive around problems. it's what the real guys do, so why can't we? It's not about the damage, or looking at pieces that fly in the air, it's about when you crash or get crashed into, there's just not enough varation in damage but the front wing. I want floor damage, rear damage, damage that puts me to the limit to finish a race. Not every race must be or has to be a walkover. Dissapointment is also part of F1

    Crazy Shine on Tyres in F1 2019

    Correct, but the moment they drive out of the pits, the shine immediately dissapears and that line isn't visible. But ingame, I don't know, it's so obvious, like someone didn't copy paste 2 halves in the right way... nowhere near reality, just like the gloss you mentioned. let's just hope it's gone on the 25th

    Crazy Shine on Tyres in F1 2019

    Doesn't anyone notice the weird line in de middle of the tyres in game? Not visible in real life, and it bothers me already...

    Udp request for F1 2019

    @Hoo can you please implement the fuel delta in laps and the time delta in the UDP packets in F1 2019? I have a custom wheel with tft display and use simhub software to customize my data on screen, but in 2018 I was struggling to get the same data on my display regarding those 2 delta's. The same would be nice regarding the driver in front and behind time. thx in advance!

    Traction Control

    That's why NO TC players can identify TC users right away online... mostly around 1 second quicker than the fastest non TC user, gold "skill" status (which takes no skill offcourse with assists on) and when they sideways ram you, the TC users can go out off the gravel without issues where TC users lose the car... when using assists like TC, people should not be allowed to gain any form of skill status because it's plain cheating IMO. The benefits of TC is too big an advantage in many ways. Or the gain in skill points should be so dramatically decreased that getting to gold status or higher should be near to impossible, and then an old saying goes up: git gut. That's how skill should be awarded. i can handle people with ABS or other assists, but TC is nearly impossible. When they can take a curb full throttle and the really skilled users can't because NO TC bites you so hard that you lose the car, I call that cheating. Especially online.

    F1 2018 UDP Specification

    Good one! How does CM calculate both numbers regarding fuel/laps? i have tried to figure this out also, but all my calculations never come to what is on screen self. How do I get the same values as whats on my screen for how many laps fuel is in the car and the delta fuel? @Hoo
  11. Thnx for the support bud. when taken over by AI, the AI is way to impredictable when they brake for instance, they sometimes almost come to a stand still and when you come in with normal apex speed, it's byebye front wing. When people leave the lobby, they ghost, so make it the same for AI
  12. So sad 1st of april is already in the past... could be perfect troll date 🤣
  13. Just had a race with someone who was ridiculously quick on Ps4. He was definately using TC so that's one, but i retired to check him out and saved the video of which the link i will send to CM because if this is how I think cheating, it has to be adressed ASAP. this guy kept driving lap after lap in ERS HOTLAP mode, you never see changes beeing made on the wheel to change the setting (which when set on auto is still visible when changes to ERS are made) and the bar kept on a stable half bar battery, even on full throttle the battery would go UP in stead of down, and the bar never got below a certain point of half way. He kept going in 5, on straights the bar fills up and goes down, but at the end of the straight the bar was just as full as when he started at the straight. And that's impossible when in hotlap mode and going down a straight. i won't put the video online because of the rules but it's really strange IMO
  14. In other words, they let AI drive for them. Why isn't it like in 2017 that they ghost? The AI is so stupidly slow, and unpredictable, that when you're racing, 60%. Of the time because of it, you hit them. make AI ghost again, it messed up my races a lot

    F1 2019 UDP Specifications

    @Hoo @Faya Yes! This is a very good question! Since I drive with a customized wheel with screen and led's and tablet for telemetry and so, it would be nice to know in what way the UDP data would change or if we can use the same specs. can you please comment on this? When 2019 comes out, i want to race, not programme all the udp settings first 😉
