  1. Remove: 1. Hanoi 2. Paul Ricard 3. Abu Dhabi Add: 1. Mugello 2. Portimao 3. Istanbul
  2. "Replace front wing" "$2,99" Come to think of it, it might be good for the random lobbies...
  3. Naturally I watched some hotlaps on it and even a couple of races. I was not impressed. It looked slightly better than the other 50 Tilke tracks just because it was street track, so he couldn't draw the corners freely, but it had nothing that made me want to drive it.
  4. Well played, CM. They acquired the F1 license for years to come and pumped up the value of the company by doing so, only to sell it to Take Two. This is no jab, like I said - well played.
  5. Good riddance. Never bothered to drive a single lap at Hanoi and it looks I will never have to. I'm sure they'll come up with some other Tilke atrocity to replace it.
  6. Maybe it's a new feature? I mean, it did happen to Kimi in Austria. 😁 I didn't notice anything in the second clip. What am I missing?
  7. That's interesting. Mine are always black!
  8. The engines might have different characteristics, I'm happy if they do. However, I don't really see how the weight of the engine would make such a difference. The cars have a minimum weight and no-one goes above it unless something is very wrong with the design or manufacturing of the car. If the engine is heavier, they'll just reduce the weight from somewhere else. Sure, it leaves a bit less options in terms of weight distribution but I have a hard time believing Codies would have gone that far when even the aero/drag simulation is very simplified. This you can see with how different wing ang
  9. It's a wonderful thing isn't it! In fact, I was wondering why my Ferrari cockpit starts flashing like a rave party if the car ghosts. It must be a celebratory bug in lieu of this achievement! So gracious not to make the feature only available from the in-game store. Besides, the bug report section is a great way to fill a few minutes of extra time and get some good laughs. My recent favorite is having tires at absolute zero temperature, -273C, for the start of the race. I just watched a video from a certain streamer. He was about to get pole in a league race but the game threw him out of
  10. Again, can you substantiate? Do you have some data or is it a gut-feeling? Not just paint though. The car has different dimensions. You can very clearly see this in cockpit. The front of the car is lower than the Mercedes. The steering wheel is aligned with the top of the monocoque structure, while in the Merc the steering wheel is lower. The front tires also seem "higher" in the MP Car, but this is probably due to the height of the side of the monocoque and slightly different camera settings.
  11. Based on what? I've improved my times on several tracks in the Multiplayer Car in TT. It's the same performance but the camera angle / cockpit view is slightly different (better imo) than the Mercedes.
  12. It's a game, so they could do something a bit more experimental. I think it would be good to have a something like a 10% reduction in horsepower for a little while after extending a corner. Penalties are okay in terms of cutting corners, but going wide on the exit (but staying on kerbs/track) is a silly way of getting time penalties, because there is rarely meaningful gains to be had. Track extending is most exploitable when setting up an overtake - thinking of something like the Spoon curve in Japan - but this would be negated by the horsepower reduction. Needless to say, there shouldn't be p
  13. @Malarky94 That must be annoying. It probably won't help your feeling saying this, but.. Unless it's been fixed (it's been a while since I drove MyTeam), simulating will not do you any good. At least all the races I've ever tried to simulate have vanished off the face of the earth. There's just a blank space for every driver for every simulated race.
  14. This time there was no confusion - although it was plausible to assume so. We simply have a disagreement on the interpretation of what software Tonizza was referring to. The thing is, we are already months apart from the launch. These guys have been training relentlessly at home ever since. Of course I can only make assumptions on the matter, but those include thinking that having outdated drivers, for example, would have already manifested in a lot of problems before these events, and that they would've been promptly fixed. Of course it's possible that they got a new PC the same day
  15. The lead designer, Lee Mather, has been adamant for years that it is a sim. How can the participants be in charge of the software? As far as I know, the players - be it regular Joes or esport drivers, have no way to access the coding of the game or to make changes to it, especially for network infrastructure. They can alter the code of the game to get more grip and speed though, i.e. use cheats. In terms of hardware, that is definitely a responsibility of the drivers at home. It's great that they can't play through LAN now. It exposes all the glitches that us normal players are subje
