    F1 2020 WISH LIST.

    Much as I'd love to see them, cranes and flatbeds would be a nightmare to code... or at least, ones that didn't just appear and vanish like the cars do. They'd have to drive themselves from somewhere and position themselves exactly right, all without colliding with any other track buildings or track furniture. Then lift the car and take it away somewhere sensible, all without hitting anything again. Given how much trouble they've had implementing a safety car that only has to drive from the pit lane to the track and back now and again, I hate to think how wrong they could get this 😉
  2. Paradox also have about 100 employees, and having worked at many big and small companies in my time, it's a lot easier to do the sort of things that Paradox do when you're a small company and everyone literally knows everyone else.

    The game should be out months before the new consoles, so I wouldn't expect any next-gen specific features. It will, I'm sure, be playable on the new consoles via backwards compatibility.

    F1 2020 WISHLIST

    The 10 year career mode would be awesome, but their current licence just doesn't allow it unfortunately... they get to use the current year's cars, teams and tracks in the current year's game, and that's it. Anything else has to be separately licensed at extra cost, if it can even still be licensed at all. (Which in the case of defunct teams and sponsors, often isn't the case.) A Welsh driver wouldn't get the Welsh national anthem in real life, so even if they added them to the game, you probably still wouldn't hear it I'm afraid 😉

    Disappointed in audio F1 2019 game - Monaco

    I'd be very surprised if it does in this day and age... could potentially be a serious safety issue.

    Should be moved to the "Introduce Yourself" section, perhaps...?

    Fix Suzuka Bump PLS

    Where have they said they refuse to do it? They may have different priorities to us, and that's often frustrating, but making stuff up about what they have or haven't said doesn't help.

    You're very welcome to disagree, but then by definition you're not one of the people I was talking about. (Similarly, most of us don't care a jot about e-sports, either.)

    Idea for F1 2020 Codemasters - Historical Circuits

    We'd all love it. Many of us have asked for it before. The reality is, licensing historical stuff is legally difficult and time-consuming, and costs more money over and above their annual F1 licence, so they're always going to be limited in what they can do.

    New to Grid (but not new)

    The number of tracks is certainly a bit disappointing, but more tracks are going to be made available as free DLC. Which tracks and when, they haven't told us yet.

    New tracks

    They have said a number of extra tracks will be made available as free DLC. No more details are available as yet.

    F1 2019 Worth £22?

    I've been a huge Apple fan since the 80's, but I've never owned an iPhone. Go figure...

    New Moderators without PS4

    A forum moderator's job is not to "react to PS4 problems", or any other gameplay problems.

    Did codemasters make any +2A games

    Not as far as I remember. The last Codemasters game for the Spectrum was released in 1993, and even that still worked on the 48K Spectrum, even though you could only buy 128K Spectrums by then. There may have been 128K-enhanced versions of some titles (i.e. with better sound), but I can't think of any.

    F1 stadia?

    Unlikely... F1 2019 is on Microsoft's xCloud service instead, and there appears to be an exclusivity clause for now as there aren't any games on both streaming platforms.

    Discussion Thread for Patch Notes for 1.18

    Have we? I don't recall them making any promises to fix it. Since it's been like this at least the past couple of years, seems fairly likely that it's not fixable without another rewrite, and that's not going to happen in a patch.

    Burn Outs On Formation Lap

    There is no "requirement" for any driver to do burnouts. During the hybrid era, I'd say drivers typically only do one at the end of the lap, as they approach the grid.

    PAD is too faster than Wheel ! WHY ?

    Their fastest times should be identical. Favouring people who can afford expensive hardware is literally "pay to win", and that always sucks.

    P.S. Don't forget there are also quite a lot of us who don't want them, and are quite happy with the current graphics. People who are happy with the status quo just don't tend to bother responding to polls.

    New Developer Liaison

    Please report bugs in their own thread in the Technical Assistance sub-forum, or add information to an existing thread if there is one.

    Aarava's spoken

    I gave up listening to Aarava speaking a long time ago, to be honest.

    Safety car

    As always, I don't buy the "don't care enough" argument. I don't know any games developers who don't care a ridiculous amount about the games they make. And as for the notion that any company's business plan includes refusing to fix an issue in order to annoy its paying customers, that's plainly just ludicrous. I do believe there is some fundamental reason they can't make the safety car work, though. And whatever that reason is, it's clearly significant enough that it's not going to be magically fixed in a late-cycle patch. And possibly not until the next complete re-write.

    POLL | Race Driver: Grid - Remastered

    I still have and play Racedriver Grid, so I have no reason to buy another version.
  24. scottishwildcat

    This is the worst GRID so far.

    "Storied" just means "celebrated" or "legendary".
