hey codemasters community, f1 2015 is coming out "soon". The next F1 game will come out for the PC and new consoles (PS4 and XBOX ONE). this means they can implement new, better stuff because more power is available and here are my ideas: 1. bring back press conferences and interviews 3. add installation laps, warm up laps, lap of honor.
4. bring back the old menu. I want to see the paddock like it was in f1
2011... in the last two f1 games there were no atmosphere (proposal: same beginning as f1 2011. you are sitting in your own trailer. If you wanna go to the race you have to click to the door. You stand up, get out of your trailer, you are walking to your garage, in the meantime you get interviewed by ted kravitz or kai ebel. they ask you a few question about the upcoming race blah blah blah.. then in the garage you put your helmet on, get into the car and start racing :) . 5. improve the saftey car. it never comes out (25% race distance) (min. 4-5 SC in one season please!) 6. a "helmet creator". so I can create my own design (+ choose my own personal number for the season + MORE and DIFFERENT helmets) 10. there should be a symbol when my engineer is talking to me -> teamradio symbol. (maybe they can invite current team bosses to speak a few sentences :D) 11 update the HUD. it's quite outdated. just to mix things up a little bit :) another example http://imgur.com/dx46QEI 11.1 you manage the ERS. So you decide how much energy you wanna discharge after every corner. for example you can say: I wanna deploy 25% of my energy after turn 1, 25% after turn 3 and 50% after turn 6. Then there should be an overtake button. This allows you to change your "discharge" tactics (which you set before the race). If you wanna overtake someone, maybe all of your energy gets discharged on a long straight As we all know a 2015 F1 car's fuel consumption is limited (100 kg per hour, correct me If am mistaken) So there are only two option in my opinion: 1. go fast, put the pedal to the medal or 2. save fuel there is no cross between these to onesTherefore I thought "why do we have this old system in the recent F1 games?" and here is my proposal:First of all you need to set your decharging points for a track. This means you decide where your ERS is activated for example: 10% after turn 1, 50% on a straight and the rest after the last cornerhttp://puu.sh/gJjn2/b11b9c6c2a.jpgOVERTAKE (MIX 1): If you set this option, ERS gets deployed on straights before good overtake opportunities. It's the famous "overtake button". Before the race begins you decide your decharging tactics. This mode comes in handy when you stuck behind a slow car.STANDARD (MIX 2): this mode is self-explaining. It's the normal mode.SAVE (MIX 3): At mix 3 you save fuel. As a result you got less bhp from the ERS. 160 bhp -> maybe 100 bhpand secondly could you show the ERS button and change the colour to blue? :) http://puu.sh/gJjp9/e0a9c5d17a.jpeg 12. I want to switch off my car when I am on track. So it's a DNF (just for realism) EDIT (!): get stuck in a gravel trap 13. the pitcrew should cheer me on the pitwall when I am crossing the line in first place! 15. I want to hear good songs when I am in the garage (that's why f1 2011 was so awesome ;)) EDIT: import own mp3 files. more noel gallagher songs :D :D 16: there should be two kinds of pitstops for qualifying. a long pitstop
(pull car back into garage) and a short one (just changing tyres)... 17. flow vis paint on an f1 car in Free Practice. just because it looks cool 18. improve Q&R. different levels or make them longer (e.g. on expert: a 10 laps long run. on amateur: a 1 or 3 lap(s) long run) I hope you know what I mean^^ 19. billboards on the pitwall. like in real life 20. bring back Anthony Davidson (or even Martin Brundle) for commentating hot laps 21. improve damage model (broken suspension) 22. pitlane start when changing setup during qualifying 23. celebrations for the driver (like in FIFA) after crossing the line, you press a definded combination of buttons and your driver will celebrate himself :) 26. Codemasters may implement some mods (realistic damage mod, better tyre mod,.. etc) 27. remove the replay function in qualifying: So it's getting much more important to get a good lap early. In my opinion most people do just one quali lap. If you disable this feature they may go out for a second run 29. please add this gigantic ferrari flag in monza. would be great to see this http://news.bbcimg.co.uk/media/images/69686000/jpg/_69686055_monza_ferrari.jpg 30. NO MARTINI LOGO. Solution: Bring 2 versions of the game out. 1. without alcohol adverts -> PEGI 0 2. with alc adv -> PEGI 18 hopefully (at least) one developer should read this... would be awesome if they implement some all of my dreams/wishes/ideas in their next F1 Game™ greets form germany ;) DONE: 2. add a podium scene EDIT: with national anthems 8. the weather change is too rapid. If you don't change the tyre in the right moment, you are messed up 9. improve the AI!! (first lap, first turn, different race strategies, ... ) 25. change camera animations after finishing a race... make it more like real life. camera catches winner. take f1 2001 as an example 7. work on the replays. in my opinion it's too cinematic. add original tv perspectives. 28. in quali can we have a "live feed" on our monitors to see the weather condition on track?
