New Speedometer Design (T-Cam)

Recommended Posts

https://youtu.be/DpYU_6pz-44

Slick and futuristic just as the new HUD, would be cool to have in the "officially licenced" F1 2018 game this year imho.

#OfficialityMatters

------------------------------

What is your opinion, do you like it or do you suggest a different design?

I really like it! Its cool that they are actually using the Halo for something other then safety. I like the futuristic look. Although, in my opinion the cars still look better without the Halo but I don't mind that it is there. Glad that some effort has gone into it to make it more appealing.

Joke aside, you can actually now see what they are doing, like back in the days when you had to swipe your eyes all over the place if you wanted to know how much throttle/ brake or any of those thing they were applying.

That HUD would only really work as a replay function, or as an option. I love it when applied in the right scenario, however it is true it obstructs the view quite majorly and sometimes can get a bit annoying when applied in the wrong scenario.
Other than that it is a really nice way to capitalise on the halo, and still apply the telemetry to the broadcast.

I don't really like it, it's too distracting as it takes tol much space above the halo and the always blue color can look bad with for example a red car. I'd like to see a version with the background color being almost the same as the team's color.

We should only see what the driver sees  ! We are supposed to be racing as drivers not watching  tv
Playing with T-Cam doesn't help much with this idea, does it?

T-Cam is the easiest, which is why it's the most used camera.

Easiest maybe. But I prefer it most, since it looks "good" whatever that means and gives the best racing experience for me. Driving with pad some reason it just feel the right thing to do. Back in the days 2015 and start of 2016 I used wheel and of course I drove from cockpit, since that's the way to do it. Driving with wheel and t- cam is just wrong, since I was slower driving from there than cockpit. And vice versa now when I drive with pad I'm faster using t- cam than cockpit.

I might be broken or something.

T cam is definitely easier I feel but I prefer a realistic approach hence I use cockpit. F1 drivers dont sit in the T cam position do they

F1 drivers also don't have such weird tunnel vision that they can barely see in their mirrors because they can't move their heads, but that's what cockpit view gives you (unless you're playing on a multi-screen setup).

I turn my head all the time in the game to look at my mirrors and real drivers also need to turn their head to see the mirrors in real life. You can clearly see them having to do it. You have the wrong idea of how wide your vision is sitting in a open cockpit car. Sitting in these cars cockpit, your entire vision to your left and right is filled with the left and right front wheels. You cant see around them and in the current F1 cars case you cant see over them from the tires being so tall and you sitting so low. Combine that with the removable padded head rest thing on each side, and the Hans, Your vision is very much tunnel vision like

Just a comparison how it could look like in the game.

A game doesn't have the same requirements for HUD that a tv had. For one on tv you are just watches. While in the game you are controlling the car. The new HUD the FIA uses looks nice. But while driving I prefer not to have the speed indicator being positioned in a place where it limits my view of the track (if driving in t-cam view).

Yeah those fool F1 drivers who have anything front of their vision in steering wheel.
