F1 2014 SINGAPORE HOT LAP RANT

Recommended Posts

First of all you should watch the Lap here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jRNXFhN_Ylw

You may have seen my comment in the video but if not just hear me out here. 

I seriously cannot believe you guys at Codemasters. You just arent listening to the community, and being extremely lazy. The fact you are making people pay £30-£40 for a copy pasted F1 2013 that emulates the F1 2014 Season is a joke. The game looks exactly the same, but with a different sound and different chassis. It looks like a 2013 Mod. Its just a filler for you guys to make a bit of dosh whilst you are hopefully actually busy on making 2015 a good game. I am close to giving up, as i know many many others have done too. Before you use the fact that Steve Hood replies to alot of tweets, most of these are just saying what isnt in the game that the community wants, like formation laps, podiums, dedicated servers and that live the life feel to the game like 2010 had. 

Like i have said in the comments, you guys havent even updated the track for Singapore which again = laziness. (Prove me wrong and say you will update it before the game comes out please.) 

The corner where the old chicane was has a wall there on the turn in real life. It was there before the 2013 game came out, but fair enough if it was too late to update it. Its now been a year since the 2013 Singapore GP and the track still looks exactly the same.

Its pathetic. I love F1, and i love playing F1 because i love racing. But only league racing now, because its the only thing i can play without a crappy AI, but im not gonna go into that i just want to say where has that Live the life feel gone, and where has the Joy in actually simulating a season gone. The handling was the best its been on 2013 so ill give you that but its more than just handling. Its making it feel and look real, and by the looks of it both of them aspects are not in the 2014 game at all. 

Really hoping for more in 2015 as i think this game is already a failure, but because im a mug i will still be buying my copy and racing in leagues only to the fact it is the only F1 licensed game.

Also on a last note, what the fuck is wrong with this wing mirror - http://puu.sh/bE49d/d3157b2b95.jpg

Sorry for the rage, i just needed to get my opinion out there.

It's sadly obvious that this is indeed a copy-paste job that they'd rather not be making, but since their contract requires them to release a game every year here it is. The lack of previews leaves me feeling that they'd honestly rather everyone not notice this game, and certainly don't have anything they can't wait to tell us all about in there. Better this than rush the next-gen game and have it full of quick fixes that ruin every subsequent game on the new engine though, I guess,

The frequency of the camera angles changing almost put me into a seizure. NORMAL TV REPLAYS GUYS. If an F1 broadcast was directed by Codemasters no one would have any clue what was happening in the race

But everyone would be keenly aware if a small pebble hit the front wing.

I'm really into track detail. iRacing's failure to keep their tracks up to date made me cancel my subscription. This does bug me a little bit, but I can understand why the left the wall out - for the new gamers gaming on very easy mode that may need that run off area for their mistakes.

My biggest concern about Singapore this year are the kerbs. 2013's Singapore along with Korea's kerbs made me feel like I was rock climbing everytime I hit them as they were extremely elevated.Singapore's kerbs appear to be more smooth and worn with tyre marks in real life. From the video, it looks like a little improvement was made, but they could've done better.

I think most people agree that F1 2014 is fulfilling Codies contractual obligations with the FIA whilst at the same time buying them time while they fumble around trying to work out how to make a next gen game. It's not looking good and I think Codies have underestimated the community thinking we wouldn't notice what they are up to.

I agree, CM needs to at least get this right!

I see turn 10 is still wrong!!

Also why can't we have an onboard lap as promised?
Where did they promise that? I've rarely seen Codemasters promise anything on here, let alone in relation to something they probably had finished and signed off by FOM weeks ago.

It's Codemasters, it's a Codemasters game which is equal to Activision and Activision games. In other words, a poor effort with expectations of as much money as possible earned. They no longer care about putting effort into their games ("We don't want to put too much money into this area"), just make as minimal effort as possible ("We don't want to put too much money into this area"), advertise the game a little ("But not too much, we don't want to put too much money into this area") And expect us all to consume the end product.

Okay promised was probably the wrong word to use. Hatta did say about it in response to people asking for it. They did it last year and the year before that, so it is ringing alarm bells here.

I think I'll wait for the 2015 incarnation.

True, the mirrors are accurate for the driver.

The gold stripe isn't though, it's angled wrong.
