MotorworldHype Lee Mather Question Thread

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

 

Hey everyone,

We wanted to let you know that we may have a chance to conduct an interview with F1 2019 game director Lee Mather. Because of this, we want to give YOU the chance to get answers to your F1 2019 questions.

We have done this in the past with other racing franchises which I won't name here and it typically goes on pretty well.

This is how it will work (PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE POSTING):

1. Submit a question you would like to ask Lee Mather about F1 2019

2. Make sure the question was not already answered in a previous interview or in another thread on this forum.

3. It is ok to ask a hard hitting question but don't get adversarial. For example don't ask things like "Why did F1 2018 suck?" 

4. Please only ask ONE QUESTION PER POST. See #5 for why.

5. We will be choosing questions based on how many "Likes" and thumbs up each post gets. The more it has the more likely we are to choose it. If one post has several questions in it then we don't know which one earned the "like". Thus, any post with multiple questions in it, despite how many likes it has will be ignored.

6. If your question is chosen we will credit you by your forum user name when we ask it.

7. THERE IS NO GUARANTEE THAT WE WILL GET A RESPONSE. We are in contact with the Codemasters PR agency of record and we have interacted with Lee in the past but many outlets will be perusing questions as well so we can't promise that Lee will be able to answer the questions we submit to him. 

8. All updates on the status of the interview will be posted here. The finished interview will go up on MotorworldHype.com 

9. Please be respectful in your questions to Lee and to each other! Trolls will be ignored and even reported based on conduct. 

10. REMEMBER! If you can't come up with a question, that's ok! Read the other questions in this thread and give them "Likes"/Thumbs Up! that is your way to vote for the best questions!

 

I think that covers anything. If there are any new rules or changes to the situation, this thread will be updated. I look forward to seeing what you guys come up with!

Good luck!

We know that F2 cars will be added to Multiplayer, but will they be added to the leagues too? (Preferably with info when they'll be added.)

Hi Lee, the idea of customization, premium liveries, suits and gloves is neat. I know you want to talk about 2019 but will we get to see more of that in the future? I don't play multiplayer much but this could work for single player as well. Back to 2019, will we get customizable caps too?

Hi Lee, With a maximum of 20 players allowed to enter the new leagues mode, most leagues will not be able to use the mode properly as they require human reserve drivers to fill the lobbies, rather than AI substitutes. Are there any plans to patch in the possibility to let reserve drivers participate?

Completely forgot about this one: Paul Ricard got a new pit entry which isn't in the game. Is the new pit lane planned for an update or will we have to wait for the next installment of the series?

Has anything been done about the desync in the game, it makes league racing so much harder as not even touching the driver ahead, they still get taken out

Hi Lee, just a question about the visual things on F1 2019. Why do we get no official broadcast style again? You previewed in Hamburg on your event broadcast presentation but it's not in the game. What about the official starting grid and end result broadcast screen? Why the same cut scenes since years now? It's nothing new in this area and this is a shame.

Hey Lee. People want the option to display all drivers in the position HUD and the possibility to only display the 3 main characters of each driver like in television (HAM instead of Hamilton etc.)? Can you add this in via patch? (For example select the number of drivers you want listed in the HUD and decide between full name shown or 3 letters?

Thanks!

Hi Lee, The burning question for FANATEC Owners is, will WHY is the ClubSport Steering Wheel F1® 2018 and 2019 NOT have FULLY Functioning Button and Rotary encoders within the game both on PS4 and PC?😡

Thanks in Advance!

For the more casual players who prefer to play with friends, will we be able to do an online co-op championship using the official teams and drivers that we can then save and come back to between races? Leading on from this if there’s just 2 user controlled cars can the rest of the grid be filled by AI?

Can you add the option on monitor while in garage to enlarge the live tv feed to a fullscreen (by for example pressing an assigned button?

With full driver transfers confirmed, can you tell a little bit about the position of Liberty Media, the FOM and the teams regarding this huge change. Obviously this was a long requested feature, so how did you experience this process.

Have there been any improvements made to the car handling model - particularly the setups? Is telemetry finally implemented so during practice sessions or time trials you can see what adjustments need to be made?

Will there be any cut scenes with the 2 fake drivers through the F1 career? Like they have in the F2 feeder series.

Any changes to championship mode in 2019 or has it been neglected again? It is after all a game about the 2019 Championship and not silly made up drivers

Hi Lee, in previous games there was a huge gap in AI difficulty between some tracks. Have you been able to improve this so we don't have the fiddle with the difficulty settings between GP weekends?

Is there any chance of adding a toggle for the ai to stop them from randomly breaking down in career mode? or even better adding random failures for the player that can be toggled on or off?

Is it possible the ai in career mode can retire and be replaced by a f2 driver?
