  1. True, I agree, but they have a "sense" of where the car is and when moving left/right they don't move as slow to the mirrors :). I know it isn't realistic, but 1. certainly during online racing this would be helpful to avoid divebombers and anticipate them a bit better. 2. most "true hardcore sims" even include one for that sake, it might not be "true realism", but it's still a game, and can be seen as an assist maybe then
  2. No complaints about the handling, it's good I feel. FFB as well. It could be better, but it's again better than 2018. For sure I notice a subtle difference, and I like it.
  3. If you don't own F1 2018/2018 then it's worth buying F1 2019. It really is a great game. But the progress of the games, how great the updates are (the new sector time screen, the f2 car, the customisations, the subtly but noticeable updated ai & handling, the highlights) it still looks like there could've been done more for such a chunk of money. 1- Still no virtual mirror or VR. Certainly a virtual mirror should be an option for safe online play. The indication markers don't do the job. VR should be an option for the hardcore simmers playing without any assists and go full on. But the virtual mirror should be slapped on as otherwise you'll have no idea who's coming behind. 2- Depth: well, if you go out and make us do three (10% races) in an F2 car. And then abandon the story essentially, then just don't do it. This needs to be fleshed out better. I don't mind a story mode, but then flesh it out. And do make us choose whether we want to "restrict" ourselves from choosing an A-ranking team like Mercedes, Ferrari or Red Bull, let us choose for ourselves from the beginning of career to limit our choices, or to widen them. Let us choose to run a full F2 season before doing F1 and seperate the story then into some cutscenes (not every race for example). Career mode lacks depth because you can't customise enough in that direction - however it must be said if you never played it before - it's good. But we've been here before as long time fans 3- Impact: Your action taken need to have impact on the F2 or F1 world. The questions by Claire, the reactions of the teams, the commentary can and needs to be fleshed out a bit more, a bit richer. The foundations are in place and they work great, a bit more variety won't hurt. Certainly when negotiation a contract, a permadeath scenario such as in Diablo wouldn't hurt either. Ending your career prematurely if you really really are bad - it would make an impact to try and improve and make negotations a bit more "real" or "impactful". Now it really doesn't matter that much. And to close this off, a bit more variety in getting your name in there won't hurt either. If codemasters would just look up the list of "names" used in the "Crewchief" open source project, they'll know which names people want... I hate to be called "The Prema driver" or "The Engineer", whilst my name could be in there very easily. It would make the game have a big impact on you as a player. 4- Bugs & Issues that are there for a long time are still not solved in this iteration. They are known to the community, they have been asked time and time again by the community. To be fair, on launch day I had no issues on an old system. So it's go-racing a-ok from day 1, which can't be said for many games being released these days. My words will never reach Codemasters HQ, I guess/know, but the community and people coming in should know and spread. Because otherwise we won't be getting any step up of progress. To conclude, don't get me wrong. I love the game series and I love the way Codesmasters does everything else, there are just some things I feel we need to push as a community. I also don't want this game to be in any other hands than codies, they know their thing, making an F1 game for a big crowd isn't easy for sure. They know how to balance this and bring some new cool things. I do applaud them for that, however, 1/2/3 and 4 are very important for the development of the game I feel. But... just my 2cents. Nevertheless, see you on track!
