    Ditch Hanoi bring back hockenheimring

    I hate singapore. I get so bored driving it, I can only do about 4 laps before I just don't feel like playing the game anymore.

    Question about Career mode!

    Well, technically he could, and then just change modes lol. But that would only work if he isn't bothered by stats not carrying between the two modes.

    Replacing ICE issue.

    Renault did such a good job handing me upgrades, I decided to stick with them for season 2 and even added some yellow accents to my paint scheme, making them my official engine supplier lol.

    Career Practice Programs

    Track acclimation becomes much easier as your car improves, because your grip improves so you can brake later, and get on the throttle sooner.

    I'm the opposite, If I qualify 20th I'll often still finish in the top 10 lol Also, I won mexico in my first season, when most of my other finished were between 8th and 15th lol. So not sure if I am just exceptionally fast there compared to other tracks or if the AI under performs. It was not an easy win, but still lol.
  6. Trying to just get to the menu and instead being sent into photo mode because I was in a rewind, is one of the most annoying UI things about this entire game.

    Practice programs time/level issues

    I've been running into this with qually practice program. Says my target is 19th, and I can't do it, by half track I'm a half second down on the target. Then I qualify for the race, and qualify 8th .... Like what in the actual **** lol.

    Anyway ... Lower your downforce. After further testing, I'm almost certain that was my main issue. Between being down on power being in a low tier team and too high downforce, I lost way too much time on the straights.

    Cataluntya AI (My team mode)

    Because I have a life outside of gaming, as well as other games I want to play and don't want to waste my time driving around pointlessly, when I could move on to another track and not only not waste my free time not having fun, but also not unnecessarily wear out my parts (in real life as well, why put wear on 1000s of dollars of equipment, for a minuscule amount of "acclaim" in game lol ), giving me a better shot at competing better in later races. Acclaim doesn't go up enough in one race to waste my free time loitering at the back of the field with no hope of gaining any spots. You can waste your time all you like, I have better things to do.

    Cataluntya AI (My team mode)

    There'd been no major changes between races. I had actually just fitted all new engine parts lol. Its actually why I pulled off and retired from the race when I did, saw no reason to wear out brand new parts to finish 20th lol. I'm thinking Catalunya is not balanced well, as the 3 races prior were top 10 runs and the 3 races since were a 12th at Monaco in the wet, a 9th at Baku and a top 10 in Canada as well. Now I've got a big upgrade complete going into france so I will probably crash out because I don't know the track lol, and then have to up the difficulty again to make sure I don't win just yet lol.

    Cataluntya AI (My team mode)

    Well, I had a full wet race at Monaco, and ended 12th, so I think Spain may just be poorly balanced or something. I really don't want to have to continuously change the difficulty lol, so I guess what I may have to do if I still run **** at Spain next season, is actually break down, and try to make a setup for just that track, rather than mess with the difficulty level. But if that doesn't work, then I guess I'll have little choice but to alter the difficulty or DNF every time lol.

    Cataluntya AI (My team mode)

    I never noticed it this bad. I know some tracks I've struggled at more than others, but generally I'd be within 5 spots. I was more than 10 positions down over the previous race lol. At a track I know well at that lol. Never played 2019, so idk about that one. Last one I played was 2018.

    Cataluntya AI (My team mode)

    So, I have been slowly tweaking up the AI difficulty as I try to find a good balance (something I can run default setups on and still run where I feel I should be) I had it too low for Australia, Bahrain and Vietnam (kept going up by 5 after each race) China I thought I had it close and left it for Zandvoort as I've never raced on that track before in any game, but wound up running too well there too lol. Still, decided not to change it and see how Catalunya went, and I got utterly smoked lol. Went from Ql around 14th-18th and finishing 10th/9th/9th to QL 22 and running 20th and falling back to the AI in 19th lol I eventually just pulled off into the pits and retired, no point in wasting engine wear for a 20th place run lol. I was trying to find a difficulty where I run around 13th-17th range, so I was about to up it again and see how that felt, but now that I got smoked at Catalunya lol... Is the AI overly fast there? Or are the early tracks all slow lol?

    Finally got around to finishing my season before F1 2020

    Been playing 2020 all evening, and while I've noticed a few little bugs, the my team mode is pretty in depth from what I can tell, quite impressed with the jump from 2018 to this. The graphics look better but the game also runs smoother which is odd lol. Fiddling about trying to find a good difficulty to run. I feel a lot slower on 2020 (even in time trial), cars seem to have a lot more grip overall, but really under-steery at low speeds. Also, I hate push to pass ERS control, I prefer 2018's setup.

    Finally got around to finishing my season before F1 2020

    Usually 50% but I did actually reduce to 25% length for the last 5 races, as I was running out of time (getting the Schumacher edition so I'll be playing soon lol) 25% races are a lot less tiring lol, but do actually add to the challenge a bit, because you have no time to make up for mistakes. The last race was glorious, we battled for the lead for basically the entire race, My car was so much slower that I wasn't able to keep vettel cleared on the long straights, but I finally got him by getting a better in/out on my pits and over took him as he was exiting the pits, from there I drove with every ounce of talent I had to keep him behind lol. Finished just .3 seconds ahead. Most fun I've had losing a championship in a long time lol. This is what the points looked like coming out of Spa and then Brazil, Vettel was making the charge with me lol.
