Rain, rain and... RAIN

Recommended Posts

What's wrong with rain in F1 2017 ?? I mean I never seen so MUCH rain !!! I'm at my 6th season in career mode at Singapore and
Australia = wet qualifying
China = wet race
Bahrain = WOW DRY TRACK
Russia = wet race
Spain, = wet race (then dry up)
Monaco= start dry then gets wet
Baku = wet FP & quali
Silverstone = all session wet
Hungary = wet qualifying 
Spa = wet race
Normaly I like drive in rain but I realy get bored of this, mostly because AI are totaly bugged and slow in rain... I'm the only one with that ? The probability of rain is too BIG, it's so unrealistic

Edit : now Im at Abu Dhabi and guess what ? Wet quali at Singapore, wet race at Malaysia, wet FP at Japan and wet race at Brazil

I think you can count the wet races of the last three seasons on the fingers of one hand, so please make this more realistic. Like to see a wet race on the tely, but hate driving a wet race. Made me quite my career after too many wet races/sessions/whatever

Wow lol. IN my career mode I don't remember it being wet once. Although in my aor season we did get an awful lot of rain. Tbf tho it can be something quite hard to balance but as we can see form you here it is way too much.

You can't base the propability of rain on the amount of wet races in a season. It can start raining any day in most places pretty much. You could have a lot of rainy sessions in real life, too, technically.

But you should adjust the chance for wet sessions to the amount of rainy days in the countries during the time of the year where the race weekends take place.

I don’t understand, the only tracks where I see rain regularly are Silverstone, Canada, Malaysia. I mean COTA, Suzuka, Austria and a few others occasionally have rain, but I genuinely have just 3-5 wet quali/race sessions in a season.. that’s not that abnormal.. I do agree a setting for dry career should be made though..

Wet quali isn't that bad... or specifically wet quali 2 because it gives you the freedom to start on whatever dry tyre you want.

I'd even go as far as to say that wet is easier. The AI isn't as strong in the wet as in dry conditions.

Yeah that's the same with me as welI do get maybe 2 or 3 wet races a season when playing these games but not usually any more than that.

I don't get why we are not allowed to change the weather settings in career. For me it feels like in every Race that isn't in the desert there is at least rain in one session, be it one of the trainings, qualy or race.

That is how math works... There is always couple kids who complain about too many wet races.

As the weather system is random. Wouldn't it be possible that you were the guy who got the wet season. And vise versa someone who had only dry races. Most people got mixed season as they should.

Let me help you. Google word: random.

Perhaps you should Google "unrealistic". Way too many occurrences of this wet season you're on about.

Dynamic weather would work so much better if the player had a slider for the frequency of the rain that was actually adjustable.

Totally agree. The game needs a slider, which is percentage based. By simple moving the slider to 19%, this would guarantee that the player, would experience 4 wet races randomly, when completing 21 event per season. To guarantee a more realistic experience, that's more in keeping with reality, most players would probably place the slider settings at 15%, which would mean, no more than 3 wet race per season.

A bit like on Euro truck?

  I've started a number of career modes and this keeps happening. Hard to believe that it's just bad luck and not something coded into the game. It really doesn't rain THAT often in F1. Sure, there have been some seasons where the rain has appeared fairly frequently, but on average it probably only affects a few races per season. I'm lucky if half of my races in a season are unaffected and I've done a lot of seasons.

That's where I got the inspiration for the suggestion from.

Rain is in fact terrible. Way too frequent and the handling when when you have zero feedback as to when the wheels are breaking traction make it obnoxious to drive in. For the life of me I cant imagine why CM continually make it mandatory and wont allow ppl to turn it off. I have yet to finish a single season simply because driving in the pouring rain is so unrealistic and terrible. All they want to so is show off their graphics so they ignore the fact that any real race would be redflagged with some of the conditions we get. Not to mention how terrible their wet handling model is and how poorly the ai are at matching the conditions.

And for those that say “but random!” There is literally no such thing. Especially in programming. Its all based on a % chance and an algorithm for each track and those percentages and/or the math are bad plain and simple.

Dont care for the implementation but “No”? Why? Cause god forbid ppl playing single player career have the option to actually enjoy a season? Should we get rid of flashbacks and all give ourselves 10 lashes if we spin as well?
