Helmet colour matching

Recommended Posts

A good addition to helmet customisation would be adding an option to match the colour of a certain teams car to your helmet instead of retrying and retrying to colour match it manually.

Good point, I've had that issue a couple of times and this would help. Thankfully we can now at least change it from the menu though, instead of F1 2016's horror where you had to restart your career and sit through that same unskippable cutscene 10 times in a row ;)

Be nice if we got customisable helmets that included a template for each teams sponsors.... but that's not likely to ever happen.

Great points you all have made so far mates, here are a few other additional features that i personally think would surely improve driver customization overall as well and will give us the needed individuality to express ourselves + full fledged officiality of F1:

-Addition of matte / pearlescent / glossy / metallic etc. base helmet schemes that we can change up for each individual part of the design the way we want it to be (for example having one half of the helmet in matte and the other half being put in metallic + pearlescent etc.).

-Customizable visor tint color and visor opacity (maybe give us a "automatic" option to this feature as well where the visor tint automatically switches to a clear one if it's dark and or raining but the visor also automatically switches to our own pick, for example a dark red pearlescent or whatever color scheme we choose, when it's sunny). 

-Addition of different Fonts to write our abbreviated names and or small messages that are being allowed by Codemasters for usage (racing / electrify / speed / champion / iceman etc.) on top of the helmet (different Fonts with a size + xy slider)

-Addition of multiple symbols and forms such as stars / squares / circles / triangles / hearts / ovals / flowers / cartoons / animals / team sponsors etc. to create our own pattern on top of the already existing design (size + xy slider included).

-Addition of our driver number + country flag with a customizable size / xy slider to position it anywhere on top of the helmet.

-Being able to choose from multiple helmet brands (Arai / Bell / Schuberth etc.), with varying base designs of how the helmet is shaped and how many air vents it has got etc. (i'd love to be able to create a "Darth Maul" type of design for instance this way via having at least 6 air vent spikes on the top side of the helmet).

-Multiple different balaclavas varying in color as well as design (two eyed + open mouth / two eyed + closed mouth / standard eyed + open mouth / standard eyed + closed mouth / open face etc.) and mesh quality (ripped / silky / rough etc.).

-Kneepads varying in size, color and weight.

-Being able to choose from multiple different glove brands that are in line with the teams main accessory sponsor (Puma / Adidas / Nike / Alpinestars / OMP etc.) varying in design with customizable color schemes.

-Being able to choose from multiple different shoe brands that are in line with the teams main accessory sponsor (Puma / Adidas / Nike / Alpinestars / OMP etc.) varying in design with customizable color schemes.

-Being able to choose from standard baseball caps (like the one Sebastian Vettel wears) or flat caps (like the one Kimi Räikkönen wears) with our driver number + abbreviated name + team sponsors on top.

-Additional driver avatars to the already existing roster of both genders with the ability to change our beard / makeup and or the haircut as well as height and weight in the given range of values (for example: 1,60cm - 1,90cm height / 50kg - 84kg weight).

-Custom Podium Celebrations that we can choose from (Egyptian Dance / Fist to the Air / Super Mario Jump / Dab, i know it's a cancerous emote but seems to be popular in the circles of todays kids for whatever reason / Military Salute / Standing around without any emotion / Both fingers to the Air / Praying / Kissing the Ground / Shoey / Bwoah etc.).

It'd be awesome if such customizable features would be available via a unlock system where we have to pay a "in game" currency in the hypothetical "in game" shop to buy what we want, whilst the currency will be earned by completing challenges (drive faster than xx:xx:xx, overtake xx amount of drivers, beat your team mate in qualifying or the race etc.) / racing clean (no crashes, no contact, no overaggressive manouvers in both attacking and defending, no corner cuts etc.) / being consistent (drive in within 0.5 seconds of your best time for a set amount of laps during the race over and over again etc.) / driving with no assists (the less assists you have the higher your cash and xp multiplier will be) / driving in MP (ranked mode = high xp + high cash, standard mode = no xp + small cash) etc. etc. etc.

Hope that customization will get drastically improved for F1 2019, and maybe, just maybe, Codies could even go as far as to give us a light "sneak peek" on customization for F1 2018 via a later patch update in the forthcoming months?

But then again there is no point in getting our hopes up for no reason, as history has been very dark and stagnant in Codemasters case.....
