Is it time for the devs to implement more realism for car setup?

Recommended Posts

The car setup system has remained largely unchanged for years.
One could argue that a simplified 1-11 slider based system has worked well. It gives an option for greater control over car setup than the baseline high/low downforce setups for those looking for every tenth and those baseline setups will suffice for the more casual player or those that simply don’t wish to be both driver and mechanic. 

Does the community want Codemasters look to keep the current system or add more depth and realism?

As the official F1 title I would like as much adjustment as the real F1 cars have,
but also keep the default tunes for the ones that use those.

Even they actually just gave real measurements like ride height in MM and wing in degrees I would be happier buti would like to see a change to the set up system

Nothing less to what Project Cars 1 & 2 / Assetto Corsa etc. offer is acceptable imho, especially if we actually want to make full use of the updated handling and physics model that Codies praised that much this year, otherwise it begs the question why they even bothered to improve those features in the first place.

If they decide to not make a game next year and just offer a £15 DLC for next years cars in this years game maybe they could get this implemented however probably not as you can’t under estimate how long it took AC and project cars to develop their game to have such detailed set up options and TBH even Project cars had / had some elements of max this and min that to make the fastest set ups.  It’s too extreme and in reality very very few tracks need extreme set ups like the ones that are fast in PC.

if Codies could implement it then it would be great though.

There have been a lot of improvements to this year's game in terms of car handling, ERS, tire temp - but the setups and telemetry part of F1 2018 is the glaring weakness in terms of what goes into having a successful race.
