Wrong wheel size...again

Recommended Posts

It is sad to say f1 2016 still features completely wrong steering wheel sizes. In particular Williams, toro rosso and sauber ones look much smaller than real life. Is there an explanation for this choice?

It's all perspective isn't it, it's hard to tell if they're too small unless you've sat in the car with the steering wheel

i think the toro rosso's wheel size is correct by comparing the two images (but it's difficult to say).
The williams one is actually smaller (and the display is too).

Yeah, this is the second year in a row when the wheels are too small in Williams and Sauber... We have pointed this out last year and nothing has been done, for whole Year I have been hoping to see proper size wheels.. Codies, why is that You cant change it?

My only hope is they add a field of view editor
that wont help the wheels being to small for the car because both the wheel and car will change together using that adjustment.

Does it really matter that much? F1 2016 is already looking like the best game so far and I'm sure a steering wheel size won't affect your gameplay whatsoever. If you nitpick every single detail then of course there is going to be differences. Be happy the game is so good and honestly a steering wheel size is not the be all and end all of the world.

this is actually a pretty big issue because its smaller by such a huge amount they look weird.

It's not like you are going to be focusing on the steering wheel while you are driving - let it slide, codemasters probably aren't going to change it anyway

This is far from nitpicking. Its something that we will be staring at for hours on end. We will be staring at it the whole time we are playing the game. Nitpicking is something that you hardly can notice or never see.

I've been told in the past that size doesn't matter... ;)

As I say, codemasters most likely aren't going to change it so just get on with it and look forward to the game

Gee, I was wanting the wheels to be correct and look normal but now I don't because some random guy on the internet told me I wont be focused on something right in front of my face and I should just let it slide.

Ever think you worry too much about small things?

It is nitpicking, if this is the biggest issue on launch day we've got a hell of a game on our hands

What part of the wheel being right in front of my face are you having trouble with?

The fact that if the wheel is right in front of your face you can't see anything else can you?

Though you do seem the type to stare at the steering wheel and then rage quit because you are in a wall.

Focus on the track and stop crying.

I am pretty sure I can say this because the NDA is lifted but there is a full FOV/POV and height/width editor for cockpit in F1 2016 like the PC version of 2015 but as far as I know none for T-cam
