  1. 75% of all races in career mode are wet races. It's unrealistic and annoying. Is it possible to tweak the chance of rain like one can tweak the chance of a safety car occurence? I downloaded the editor but can't find the correct option unfortunately :(

    Also, I think Codemasters need to learn what "probability" means. If it says in the game that a race has a rain probability of say 43%, it will rain for exactly 43% of the race distance, whereas the correct interpretation would be that 57 of 100 races remain completely dry and that in the other 43 races some rain will occur ...

    Please help. F1 2014 is almost unplayable due to the high number of wet races, given that the AI is way too fast in the rain compared to their pace in the dry,
  2. I think the messages on the team radio are totally annoying in F1 2014.

    1. I don't need to be reminded of the DRS rule every single race multiple times. This message should be cut from the game entirely if you're playing in expert oder legend mode. It can be safely assumed that people know of this rule perfectly well on those difficulty levels.
    2. Almost all message regarding current pace in comparison to rest of the field or drivers immediately in front or behind of you are WRONG. If they gain on me I get the message that I'm pulling away. When I am 3 secs slower than the purple time of the leader I get told that I'm keeping up with race speed. The list goes on and on. It can't be hard to fix that.
    3. I don't need constant hints and explanations on fuel consumption either. It's okay if I got the message "You are plus 1 now" or "You are -2 on fuel".  Short, precise and to the point please.
    4. A lot of messages are contradicting each other. For example, I get the information that I'll probably finish on my current position and I should get the car home safely and only a few seconds later it is "You need to keep pushing, you lead the driver behind you by only 8 seconds"
    5. The messages just after a pit stop are usually totally pointless. Something like "You are on the harder tyres, yet you manage to keep the gap constant" just 10 seconds into my stint ... things like that really kill me :)
    It's all the little things that ruin the atmosphere and the game play ... like pit stop times being identical every time and pointless radio messages. Codemasters, please put in a little effort and address the small details. Driving feels great, graphics are fantastic, now make the game more enjoyable.
  3. Hi there,
    I noticed on a 100% distance GP at Melbourne that the fuel simulation seems a bit unrealistic.
    In qualifying I managed a 1:29.700 on the option tyres, rich mix, and obviously a small fuel load. In the beginning of the race I did laptimes of 1:32:300 on used option tyres and normal mix. In my opinion, the difference between a hot lap in qualifying and the first laps of a race should be more significant. The handling of the car also did not really feel any different during the race as compared to qualifying (brake points did not differ, speed in the fast turns were the same ...).

    Also, later in the race times did not significantly improve on new primes as one would usually see in real F1.

    Thoughts by other 100% racers?

    It's good to hear that Ovier.

    I too have a T500RS, but I'm struggling to get a good feeling with the feedback and handling.

    Can I ask what your Thrustmaster profiler and ingame settings are, as well as FFB settings?

    I have the same wheel and encountered the same problems at first. After a bit of experimenting I found these settings to work well for me:

    Steering deadzone: 2%
    Saturation: 45%
    Linearity: 30%

    Linearity at 30% makes for a very stable behavior on straights. Saturation needs to me adjusted according to a feeling of oversteering or understeering. Oversteering: reduce saturation
    Understeering: increase saturation

    Obviously, everbody will have a different taste and driving style, so this may only be useful as starting ground ...

    I Have a real problem finding my settings on my TS500RS F1, on the PC.

    The default settings is 2% on steering deadzone. rest at 0%


    And i have tried to change both saturation and lineraity, either it is way to fast or way too slow. Any help from you guys would be apperciated.

    Have played F12010-F12013, With no problems whatsoever. It really kills the gameplay, when you dont have the correct settings
