F1 2020 - Wishlist/ideas/hopes/suggestions for the future F1 Game(s)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hey guys, 

Lets collect the wishes for the next game. I just think CM already works on F1 2020 so maybe we will give them some ideas what the people want the most.

Lets start:

(!!!) 1.1 Coop-Championship

-> like it was in 2018. Real life car performance. Online with friends. Saving between sessions.

1.2 Coop-Career or Versus Carrer (!!!)

Liike the singeplayer but you can race with at least one friend for the same team and upgrade it together OR:  you can also race for different teams and improve those

 

 

(!) 2. Safety Car (!)

- it is just triggered random sometimes; but when there is an accident it doesnt come out

-> No random SC/VSC -> but if there is a car on the line or at a dangerous part of the track: bring it up!

-> Red flags if a crash occurs which blocks the SC 

-> SC going through the pitlane if the start straight is dangerous (debris/broken car)

 

3. AI overhaul

-> more AI mistakes (in particular in wet conditions)

-> more AI crashes

-> more AI DNFs after getting beside the tracks/on the dirt/spinning

-> more AI fighting, less backing up

->AI driving in multiple lines, opposed to what we currently have where the AI always forms trains.

 

4. Balancing R&D

-> its a nice feature but needs some tweeks and fixes (too fast, unreal: after 1-2 seasons Mercecdes can be the worst and backend cars be the best...)

 

5. Real Car/Driver performance

-> the performance patch this year was a joke. Ferrari has the best engine in real life. In the game it is mercedes. Verstappen should be a lot better than gasly etc.

-> also the engine should only be upgraded by the engine manufactures 

 

(!) 6. Damage Model (!)

-> Damage to the underfloor

-> Damage to the bargeboards

-> random DNFs for the player(it unreal that only AIs get DNFs) -> option to turn it on/off (for those who dont want it)

-> damage when driving to aggressive over the curbs

-> damage to the brake system (option to turn is on/off?, use lift and cost to cool it on heavy bracking tracks, R&D to improve cooling system)

-> damage to the tyre after a collision  (front wing)

-> damage to the rear wing (would end the race? only after heavy incidents like those where the car is already broken without loosing a tyre at the moment)

-> damage to the sidepods (would end the race? only after heavy incidents like those where the car is already broken without loosing a tyre at the moment)

-> better visual tyre wear (the visual model this year is very bad. its not complety shiny at the beginning. Looks always used)

=> marshals cleaning the track

=> damage the tyres by driving over debris

=> broken cars should be pulled away like in real life (trucks and cranes) and not just disappear

=> tyre flat spots

- RED FLAGS

- Tyre falls in pieces heading back to the pits if you have a damaged tyre

 

7. Better penalty system (in particular online!)

-> add "under investigation" after an action

-> get penalties later (after 1-3 rounds)

 

8. Upgrade Tracks

-> in particular the curbs on most tracks. They are often very flat in the game)

-> laser scanned tracks! 

 

9. Handling model:

- I think it is really good but should be a bit steady. Sometimes you loose the back in high speed corner by just getting on the curb. (In real life the cars have a lot of down force when driving fast and dont loose the back at those corners) 

- remove input lag

- cars should be 1 - 1,5 sec faster; reach the top speed faster; less understeer; more grip

 

10. Update the driver transfers

-> option to turn them off/on

-> no that much dynamic for the top teams (as they often hold their 1st drivers (hamilton, verstappen, vettel)

-> the leader of the Championship (Hamilton in my career) should not switch to Renault or something mid-season. He shouldnt change the TOP team at all!

 

11. More customization

-> give us the option to change the colour of the suits and gloves

-> free editor for the sponsor

-> maybe an face/suit/glove/car editor for shapes and colours (fully free customization)

(!) -> SPONSORs on custom helmets! (!)

=> helmet editor

 

11.2 Car Editor

-> lets have our own multiplayer car:

=> choose an enigine manufacturer

=> choose a front wing, under floor, barge board/side pod combi, braking system, halo design, rear wing, etc.

-> with same performance for ranked games

-> with different performance in unranked matches 

-> maybe with a "cost system" ->Example:  you start with 20 performance points

-> choosing a renault/ engine costs 3 points, Mercedes engine 4, Ferrari engine 5; the same system applies to the other parts; better parts = more expensive; you cant get the best of everything at the beginning. You earn performance points for good races/rankings. 

=> We would need an MM filter (1. Lobby: 20-22 performance points; 2. Lobby 23-26 performance points; etc?)

 

 

12. Dynamic car model

- if you research a part in career with R&D it gets visible at the car (not for every upgrade but maybe for a few) -> so if you upgrade your nose/bargeboards/underfloor/Halo/front wing/rear wing you can see visible changes (like in real life, instead of just patching the car models the car can be visually upgraded duo to the R&D system)

 

13. Improvements to the weather system

-> more complex weather system

-> more changes in unstable conditions

-> make it harder to drive beside the track

-> higher spray density

-> Correct blinking rate of the Red Backlights of the cars, especially in the wets the blinking rate is way out of sync to real life.

- BRING back localised weather

 

(!)14. Improve the pit stops/manual pitstops (!)

- add/fix the steering animation !!!

->  let us drive manually in the pitlane (maybe as soon as the player goes towards the pit crews he gets black flacked and ghosts -> no problem with FIA/FOM for driving over the pit crews :D)

-> if you go before the light turns green you ghost and get a penality for unsafe release

-> Option/Practice Program: train manual starts (in the pitlane, in career training)

 

15. Gameplay/Car performance/Handling

- cars should be 1 - 1,5 sec faster; reach the top speed faster; less understeer; more grip

- real TV graphics (2019 was a good step forward)

- FULL Control (under SC, VSC, warm-up LAP, get yourself into the pits, get yourself on the starting grid, COOL DOWN LAP!)

- Cool down lap !

- improve the radio (it should sound like in real life)

 

16. Improve the game performance

-> F1 2019 got major FPS Drops!!!

 

17. Fix the bugs

 

18. Young drivers test/between seasons tests

-> maybe for reputation, R&D points, as application test for a better team 

 

(!) 19. Better Game support/ Better communication from CM

-> publish a road map for the patches update like ( 10.07 release; Juli patch 1 with fixing bugs, late juli Patch with adding XX, juli/aug patch XX, august adding XX, unknown/later: we plan to xx)

-> more feedback from the community managers @Faya @RedDevilKT ( we really appreciate your work, hope they can give us more infos in the future; also answer faster; maybe expand the staff for it)

 

20. Virtual mirrors

 

21. More ffb options

-> the ability to shape the FFB curve/proggression

-> maybe a tire slip slider

 

22. Camera Updates: 

-> Helmet Cam, for maximum immersion

-> VR-Support (or: Increased Look To apex Values, as we currently don't have access to VR this could be a viable alternative option)

 

23. Sound: 

- Correct and improved Engine Sound, at the moment the Engines sound as if they are barely revving.

- add a realistic radio sound

 

24. Media/Podium/Around the grid

- Add Press Conference interviews like in NBA 2K

- Add more podium celebration animations. I can't believe you worked 2 years on this game and it has only 1 podium celebration

- Give a voice to our character

- lets move around the paddock

- move to the car/garage manually

- more cut scenes getting into the car etc

 

25. RED FLAGS

 

26. Other:

- better temperature management (more overheating: breakes, engine -> lift and cost, driving not behind a car (a bit off the line) to get cleaner air)

- Triple Screen support

- Option (in mp lobbies): Force cockpit view for multiplayer

- VR support

- Free Practice (with all different options: weather, (euqal)car performance, rules etc.)

- different LED dashes for each team

- Make each team have their own Invitational events. For example if you drive for McLaren then in the Invitational Events you should drive McLaren's historic cars, not/not everytime Ferrari's or Williams's.

- Make F2 drivers step up to F1 when another driver is dropped or retires (maybe the winner and 2nd place of F2?)

- Add Pre Season tests with many practice programs. Completing these programs should reward you Recource Points like in Free Practice (instead of just getting a bonus after the season; add a "simulate test" option for those who just want to get started with the next season like one can skip the training sessions)

- Make R&D slower. The R&D pace in this game is worse than last year

- 17 Season Career. I know that's a bit too much and probably no one will complete 17 seasons, but doing only 10 seasons in F1 is like starting at 18yo and retiring at 28yo, which is very unrealistic since most drivers retire after 17-18 seasons.

(- Add the option to retire from the sport whenever we want)

- Create a  longer Career mode story and (make it last 1 or 2 seasons and not only 3 races)

- Polish the game properly. Less bugs at release

 

 

Feel free to add/post your wishes. I will add them to the list. You can also quote/comment on the most wanted features!

 

Greetings!

Virtual mirrors.

More ffb options, the ability to shape the FFB curve/proggression, maybe a tire slip slider... Well just look at RRRE there's a lot that can be brought over.

Nice list, here are my suggestions:

 

-Helmet Cam, for maximum immersion.

-VR, Dirt / Project Cars / Assetto Corsa / GT Sport etc. has it, why not F1?

-Increased Look To apex Values, as we currently don't have access to VR this could be a viable alternative option.

-Higher rainspray density, currently the rainspray is too forgiving and not dense enough, Lando Norris commented on that stating that he sees too much compared to real life.

-Correct blinking rate of the Red Backlights of the cars, especially in the wets the blinking rate is way out of sync to real life.

-Correct and improved Engine Sound, at the moment the Engines sound as if they are barely revving.

-Slower R&D upgrade ratio, upgrades are too fast and a backmarker should not be able to get to the Top 3 in 1 - 2 seasons.

-AI driving in multiple lines, opposed to what we currently have where the AI always forms trains.

I added some of them to my ideas as "add-on". Also added some to the end of the list.

-triple screen support !

-laser scanned tracks! Dont expect iR quality but something like ACC could be nice

-improve handling,ffb and car physics, more responsive wheel without input delay

-improved weather. Track is like mirror too early. 

-car on wet is extremely sensitive

-remove that head micro shakes in cockpit view bcs it feels like 20fps

-remove that horrible ghosting from TAA!

-no more mid season transfers and overall transfer have to be realistic.

-improve overall engine sounds and little bit different engine sound for each team with same engine

-proper visual tyre wear please no more neverending shine

-sharper graphics

-different led dashes for each team inspired by real ones (again acc did awesome job here)

-helmet editor like motogp/gran turismo sport

Do you think that's why we don't get the game we want as we're too busy complaining about the current one? 🤦‍♂️

- Give a voice to our character

- Create a Career mode story and make it last 1 or 2 seasons and not only 3 races

- Make sure you polish the game properly before releasing it. Its amazing how you claim you worked 2 years on this one and the bugs from last year have been carried over to this year. At release we basically received a half finished game. And don't give me the excuse that you only have 1 year to make it. FIFA and NBA 2K also have only 1 year to make their games but at least their games are more polished and have a bigger stories compared to F1's 3 race story and countless bugs. Don't be lazy devs. Hard work pays off.

Really though I've been buying F1 on release every year since 2016 and so far only 2018 impressed me. 2019 is almost the same as last year. I'm really thinking of skipping 2020 altogether since it will most likely be a copy paste of 2019 with slight improvements.

Just a small thing I want to add: it would be nice if in career my name and national flag would be shown on the overal belt line on all other drivers. That should be on „live“ coverage in game (driving, cutscenes, etc.) and also on the pictures of me in the menu. It shouldn’t be that much of a problem to add and it would more immersive. Also on the tarmac in the pits would be cool.

My idea for career mode - in F1 2020 game add Formula 3 season 2019 (or 2018). First year career in F3 2019 (2018), second year career in F2 2020 (2019) and third year entry F1. All complete championship, not only three short races. Sorry for my bad english.

This is mine, and this is what I need to see included before I start buying these games again:

  • Force cockpit view for multiplayer
  • VR support
  • The ability to practice in single player, in any car, with the Equal car setting enabled

There's a lot of stuff I'd like to see in addition to this, but these are the only 3 items that are holding me back from buying, so I won't even bother to list the others at this time.

Every year, every single year, the same triumph of hope over experience! 

Don't waste your time. Next year will be the same underwhelming, bug ridden, over hyped rubbish. 

Talk about déjà vu !
