R&D Regulation Changes Question

Recommended Posts

I have just had a regulation change for the following season and have 6 weeks to convert my parts

Question I have is that do you have to convert the early parts of the tree first for those parts to work in the following season. I would like to save my ultimate upgrades first and then my majors then minors. But if I cant save them all by the end of the 6 weeks will my ultimates still be saved even if i havent save the majors and minors that are before that in the tree (I had to purchase those minors before getting to the ultimate upgrade in the first place)

Hope that makes sense - I just dont want to save the ultimate upgrades and then find they dont work in the next season and have to purchase again...

No you can save whichever parts you want.  Then all the parts connected not already researched will be unlocked and available to be researched.

Thanks jrod thats waht i thought, so guess save the ultimates first is the best tactic

Yah since they’re all half price and only take 1 week to develop it makes the most sense to start with ultimates and the majors.  And obviously prioritize the downforce/drag, weight reductions, and engine power first whichever departments are affected.  Basically the ones that provide the most amount of lap time performance first

Thanks jrod

another question - do you get a resource points bonus at the end of the season - if so how much?

Not going to be able to save all my parts unless I get a boost of points at the end of the season

If you spend your first season on reliability, quality control and price discount upgrades the rule changes don't affect you at all. No wasted points and you progress in the second season at a phenomenal rate. Kills the competition of course but the option is there.

If i started over that is probably what I would do, but on season 5 now and am only about 3 parts short of a maxed out car.. Got sacked twice early in career as reputation got hammered due to poor results (compared to expected positions), and had set the goals too high not realising the impact that had on reputation and the risk of getting sacked. At start of season 3 went to Williams set the goals low, made a lot of no comments to questions (upsetting the interviwer but losing no rep) and have got max reputation and have upgraded the car from last to 2nd. Now at a cusp at the end of season 5, i figure if I can save all my upgrades, I may have the best car for a while at least at the start of season 6, hence wondering if there is an end of season resource points bonus - I am on the last race and need about £2k points to save the last few parts. Here's hoping.....
