    F1 2020 BETA - Process Closed

    It doesn't sound that hard. I assume and hope that they have considered it for like 30 seconds and then abandoned the idea to focus on other things. It's plenty of things and features better than DAS. If we talk about Mercedes specific skills and designs I would prefer to see a well performed double stack or a "Vatteri it's James button".

    F1 2020 BETA - Process Closed

    I suppose the only way to replicate it would be visually and coding the impact on car's performance. But there are so many implications: could the system eventually be developed in career modes with other teams? Would it break licensing rules? Plus it's already out of 2022 rules, so honestly I don't know if it worth it just for one car for a year or two...

    Personally I don't think DAS will be in the game. Probably it would have been in the game. But without real life races we don't know how Mercedes will use it during the race. Currently DAS is a big mystery even in the paddock...

    I don't know if they have access to early versions till release or if it is time restricted. But for sure they have more access to game modes, tracks and features. The Beta is less glamour and more substance. It has to be that way. Usually in the Beta there are no liveries or cinematic stuff. Which is easy to understand since youtubers play a version of the game that is meant to be shown to the public. Obviously Codemasters could have changed its Beta policy and content. Only time will tell. So we can't tell about updates but for sure they will always have the best looking version.

    For those who haven't been in previous betas. The beta is completely different than the early version youtubers are showing. There's a high chance that in the beta the only available car will be the multiplayer car without teams liveries. Youtubers have all the tracks available, it's unlikely in the beta. Beta testers are not allowed to show any gameplay. The function youtubers have is different. Beta testers test the game and give their feedback. Youtubers are there to give their feedback too but their main function is to promote the game. Their are part of the marketing, beta testers aren't. That's why they are allowed to show gameplay in a certain order according to Codemasters marketing plan.
  6. As in the title. I don't know how many users are playing championship mode and if the mode will be confirmed in 2020. In that case, I would love to see all the championships unlocked. There are many cool championships and I can't understand why the user is forced to gain points to unlock some of the most interesting ones...

    ERS Deployment - F1 2020

    I lost track of all the topics touched in this thread. I read that someone was suggesting to go very slow during cool down laps to save energy anyway. It is only partially correct because cool down laps are not created equal. In a dry and sunny session you can do it. But imagine a dry to wet session in which you have 5/10 minutes to set a lap and you go out with more fuel. In that case your cool down laps can't be that slow. In real life it's the same: in many occasions out laps and cool down laps can't be too much slow. Drivers do customize their wheels. That's why they can manage so many things that well. So in real life a driver would have the option to choose between an on/off toggle and a press to activate button. They have so many shortcuts. So the on/off toggle is not unrealistic, but I agree that a push to activate option should be allowed too (since it's the most common). Lee Mather's interview by Tiametmarduk made me a bit more optimistic. I hope it's true that driving styles will impact ers management so that we won't have direct control but we will be able to interact with the ERS with our driving. I hope it's a bigger impact than the one the driver currently has on fuel. In my experience lifting and shortshifting has never impacted fuel saving enough...

    Lee Mather Responds to Scanned Tracks

    I don't think it will happen. Jumping the first year of new gen consoles would be pure marketing suicide. Companies will release their PS4 game to PS5 just to cover the new market. The F1 game in that sense is in a good position cause its release date is not close to next gen and 2021 could be out more than 6 months after the new consoles....

    ERS Deployment - F1 2020

    The new system is indeed correct. But Lando during his stream said they don't change it that much. He didn't say they don't change it at all. I don't know for sure about the others, the problem for me is not the new system (of which I understand the concept behind) but the absolute lack of control (which is unrealistic). That's why I think 2020 is a step forward but not in the right direction. It's a better system but once you take control out of users hands I doubt they will come back with more control over a more sophisticated system (presets, variation and detailed mapping).

    ERS Deployment - F1 2020

    I suggested mode 0 very slow, 5 limited to qualify. Overtake with a deployment so high to prevent people from using it in non overtaking situations. Mode 1, 2, 3 compressed a bit to a point where micromanaging them doesn't make that much difference. The problem of having 3 compressed modes is that it is equal to 1 mode. It is essentially f1 2020 with a bit of control added to situational racing. But it's always the same. We can suggest whatever we want but there will always be exploits.... I won't be surprised we'll see exploits in 2020 too. I don't know maybe with overtake button or some fuel combination...who knows...

    ERS Deployment - F1 2020

    This is what I'm trying to demonstrate. The ERS wasn't that bad by design. It was bad because of exploits. They don't change fuel from corner to corner in real life but it became the norm in the game because of exploits...

    ERS Deployment - F1 2020

    I keep reading that the old system was bad because of the micromanagement. Can you guys please found me where it is stated that the ERS was meant to be micromanaged? Are you sure the ERS was supposed to be managed that way? I don't know...mode 4 'overtake' and mode 5 'hotlap' according to their names I don't think are modes that we were supposed to use regularly in the race. The same with mode 0. I can guarantee that you could do multiple laps with the same ers mode. Even more than 90% ofvrhe race with mode 2. Can we please judge the old system not for what it ended up being with exploits but for what it could have been and probably was supposed to be? I'm still waiting for a user that does my test and tells me that this ers management/concept is unrealistic. Who did describe the ERS system to drivers? Who told them they had to micromanage it?

    I was doing a video myself. But then I found this: around 50:00, Stefano Casillo explains how they made the ERS system for the 2017 Ferrari and its profiles combined with MGUH and MGUK settings.

    ERS Deployment - F1 2020

    THANKS. I was thinking about creating a post and show different interactions between the team and the driver in which clearly the driver is changing ers preset. Thoughtout the day I was trying to explain that drivers said it was unrealistic referring to the crazy micromanaging. The actual system could have been a great starting point. And this is the reason why 3 companies (kunos, SMS and codemasters) came with different solutions: Kunos brought presets and harvesting settings SMS essentially said you can't map it and set as you want so we give you the ability to control the deployment through a button Codemasters came up with the old system Iracing went for the closest reproduction They were all formally correct. Cause they are simplified versions and philosophies of the same exact complex thing...

    ERS Deployment - F1 2020

    @BarryBL What I'm trying to say is that competitive gaming is the best showcase of talent and skill but esports are not the best simulation or showcase of realism. It happens every time with sports gaming. No problem for me, it has to be that way. Competitive gaming is like real f1 you try to find every possible advantage at the cost of realism. World record laps are crazy fast but some of them are not the best showcase of the game handling, not the best looking laps to say it that way. Drivers were criticizing the mid corner downshift using all possible bad words but...the moment after they were downshifting mid corner and using first gear. Essentially in sports gaming you have to compromise. If you want to play, in this case drive, realistically you won't be the best/the fastest. The history is full of good features that have been removed from sports game cause they were used unrealistically and as exploits. But it hurts badly the experience of those who want to compromise to have the most realistic experience...
