F1 2019 Multiplayer: F1 teams for AI and Multiplayer Car for Humans

Recommended Posts

Dear Codemasters,

Together with 3 Real-life friends we have been racing our own private league every installment since 2013, so we’re going into our 7th year now. For the first time this year there was the addition of the Multiplayer car, which would finally give each of us the same car, rather than having to choose somewhat similar teams every year.

So we race with the 4 of us, with 16 AI drivers to fill the grid.

We were very excited for the Multiplayer car, so we could create our 4 own identical cars, and fill them up with 16 AI.
However, it seems this is not possible. There is 3 options

1.    We can have either the Realistic F1 2019, where all cars are different, but we will be racing Vettel and Hamilton for real for the championship, but we still have the un-identical cars from Real-life teams
2.    We can have Equal performance F1 2019, which means the cars might be equal but Vettel and Hamilton will be one of the many and Stroll will be just as strong, so for a championship contention the AI is really irrelevant, as the winner in 1 race will finish 17th the next time round
3.    We can have all equal cars with the Multiplayer car, but the AI will also be randomly generated people, rather than the real names we all know and love

So ideally we would the AI setting to be like option 1 (akin the F1 2018 settings), and the human players to be in the multiplayer car.
Would that be feasible to implement in any shape or form? It would make us, and I reckon many small-knit groups of racers very happy.

Any feedback you can give me would be very much appreciated. At any rate, thank you very much for your dedication to the F1 series,
Kind regards,

100% agreed. I have the same situation With 3 friends of mine.

I believe that it should be an option to set at least all the humans car at the same level (using f1 or multiplayer) and the AIs realistic.

That way you will have no advantage of a human, but you would fight Hamilton, vettel etc. not the ones from the back.

plus playing AI with equal cars makes no sense... they pille up, making it really weird.

anyhow, 4 more supporting this request. And I am sure that many more feel the same way

That never happend man, best drivers like Hamilton or Verstappen are still at the top even in equal cars. Only the the gap between "better team and driver" compared to others is smaller.

The other option is still to join a midfield team (there are lot of them which are "equal")for humans and let Red Bull Ferrari and Mercedes as AI. So you will get 4 drivers of human and 6 drivers of AI for the championship. The rest is just to fill the grid.

But your idea is still good!

I wish we could just add our own Team to the current original F1 grid as the 11th or 12th team no matter in League or Career.

I believe drivers stats won't be equal, so the driver with the best abilities has a higher chance of victory.

Running a grid with generic player names is the only way to use the Multiplayer Car.

I'd suggest @2Pacalypse's method of running your league if you are looking for closely equal cars with F1 2019 performance level and driver abilities, with all of the official grid, drivers and teams.
