    The Worst Things Jeff Says to You

    This is one of the worst. You won or got on the podium last weekend and he says well done on the points finish. An immersion killer.

    How to drive 'Eau Rouge' (Spa)

    Well of course they do. AI having one set of rules to the player in some circumstances as always. But yeah. It's doable flat but a little risky and you need to be delicate with your turning.

    Do AI tyre lockups have an effect?

    Times when I've seen AI lock a tyre they haven't really gone wide or anything. Has anyone noticed whether it affects them in the corner or by going on-board and seeing their tre temps?

    Season 2 Podium Pass Details

    Yeah pretty much. Maybe we'll have a few normalish ones for season 3. Shame you have to wait nearly 2 months for it.

    Setting up a private mini league

    Very. Just set it to private and there you go. Only people who are invited can join.

    I had an engine failure!

    It's decent but it really should be possible for parts like the ICU to fail fully before high wear. You can get random engine failures in F1 when they're new. We used to get them in Sony's F1 games but Codemasters have had an aversion to this for a long time. Steve Hood, a guy who was creative director (or a position like that) in the first few Codemasters F1 games, said something like they didn't want to alienate people with a random element like that which could be a turn off for people. I recognise some names on here who seem familiar from way back then so they might remember it too. Dunno what the people in charge of that stuff at CM think of the issue these days but going by recent games, they don't think much differently. A big engine failure when you're leading by ten seconds is gutting, but that's part of the enjoyment and fun. Wish we'd get that back again.

    Podium Pass 1 Day to Go

    For it to actually happen this week and not be delayed will be a start. Well we'll obviously get all three of those. Whether there's many decent ones is another matter yet to be seen. Really hope there's some good liveries and there's at least a few that aren't completely ridiculous and cartoony. Same for the helmets and a few good celebrations.

    Podium Pass Season 2

    Thanks Codemasters. There had better be less garish and extravagant designs in season 2.
  9. The team members celebrating are there on 2020. Don't know if they were removed very early on but they're definitely there for me.
  10. Around F1 2011ish, when you went off the racing line, your grip really went away dramatically later in the race as you hit the marbles of rubber discarded from the tyre surface and the controller vibrated a lot in response. Think 2011 was the only game it was in. Really liked that. People remember it? Good example of something that should have stayed part of the series for me, but was forgotten about.

    Marbles off-line was a nice feature that should come back

    They're certainly still there visually. Maybe the effect is still there but it's a lot less. Now you mentioned how different the tyres are then it does make sense if the effect isn't as drastic.

    PHOTO MODE - Share your pics!

    Photo mode could be a bit more user friendly. Being able to zoom in with one of the sticks for example ike Forza and GT do (I think they both do anyway, Forza does) instead of having to go to the menus each time. Bit of a pain.

    Item shop is a huge disappointment

    Yeah not sure. Would be good if they were clear on it but then that's how they get people.

    Item shop is a huge disappointment

    There's a brilliant helmet as the weekly item this week. Unsure whether to save for the next pit pass next week (which I assume will be 9000 coins) or get it and then save for the pass with the coin unlocks. Think you miss out on VIP items if they come before the level at which you get VIP though?

    I can’t hide my frustration anymore

    Outstanding post, @Blent. Love seeing well composed replies like that.

    MyTeam...long time motivation and future improvements

    How can they have Calderon in the game and not have a "she" and "her" prefix for when she's being addressed. That's a little surprising.
  17. Joethe155


    Then they really should add what GT Sport has or Pro Evo. This games can and do work with modded stuff on PS4. Forza does it on Xbox too. Though Pro Evo on Xbox doesn't allow the importing of files. Microsoft thing I guess.
  18. Is there a way to know in 2020, obvious bad results aside? With Ferrari, got hired at Silverstone, won Belgium and Spa in a 16-race season, got a points finish in Brazil and failed to score in Japan and Abu Dhabi, while Leclerc won one of them. Got sacked at the end of the last race of the year, which seemed harsh and I couldn't tell it was coming that soon. I know it was the end of my contract but aside from my acclaim dropping a little, there wasn't any graphical way to tell that the team were really losing faith in me. You don't even have expected race positions in your contract in 2020. In previous games there was the team reputation bar which almost empty when you were close to your team dumping you. Is there something I'm missing this year? Maybe people who have been sacked by their team will have an idea.
  19. You do make a good point. Suppose they've gone for a bit of a Helmut Marko approach.

    F1 Games

    Out of Codemasters' ones, 2010. The top 3 press conference stuff was amazing. And then it was never seen again. Would rather this be in it than the dull and pointless questions you get asked in the pitlane. You felt you'd earned you spot sat in that press conference. In general, Grand Prix 3. First Geoff Crammond game I played.

    Item shop is a huge disappointment

    A lot of the options for helmet and livery designs vary between poor and awful. There are some good ones. Just give us some designs plainer than the extravagant offerings on show. Also as has been said, the lack of what you can do to decals, colurs and so on is very disappointing. GT Sport has it great. I'd like to think this stuff would be added in a future update but it's Codemasters.

    Lack of AI mistakes and crashes

    The one kind of crash they generally seem to have is the one with DRS open and they just spin out. It's stupid, looks pathetic, it's there more often than it should be. They do overshoot a corner sometimes and then slowly creep back on track, and they bump into you pretty often, turn 10 at Bahrain being one place for it. There are the times when they lose the car a little which looks good. With AI retirements, I do 50% races and I pretty much always only see Terminal Failure as the reason. They do still look very robotic when you ride onboard with them in practice and qualifying which is a big shame.

    PHOTO MODE - Share your pics!

    And winning at a soaked Monza for Ferrari in career after leading throughout from pole. Thrilled with that. I think it was there on 2019 too but I love how the winning team has team members come out to the barrier at the end. Think the 2nd and 3rd place teams do it too sometimes, I have seen it but not every time.

    Lack of home race detail

    Another year of whether you're in a Ferrari at Monza, or a Williams at Silverstone, there being barely any acknowledgement of it being your home race. Think Jeff says one line about in the garage and that's it. Don''t think you even get any extra XP. I guess you could change your helmet but other than that, it's shocking. I thought about changing the race engineer audio language but then realised even that isn't an option. At all. Like really? It might be a minor thing but the lack of attention around your/your team's home race is a big shame.
  25. I know I could just rip audio from youtube but I'd much prefer a clear mp3 and I'm sure others would too.
