Is patch 1.16 the last patch we can expect to see for F1 2019

Recommended Posts

Do we think the patch 1.16 is last update that we will see? I really enjoy the game but I wish someone from Codemasters would take a look at the suggestions here by players.  There are still many small things that could make a big difference (I.e safety car, pedal vibration support, etc)

but at least I have a 🎃 for a helmet, I always wanted that.  Lol.

Being that the game was released early, there is more of a fixing spread than last year. I think we can expect one more before xmas and possibly one final in early 2020.

Most likely it's for the developers to test things. As Nvidia DLSS Testing is mentioned in one of the builds, probably this will be implemented in the upcoming update/patch. Following the experience with most other steam games, it usually takes one up to five days before the actual patch is released.

They've published a new "devcheck" patch, 33 minutes ago.

So no, I think not.

There was a devcheck for F1 2018 on June 20th. Are you expecting them to release a patch for that anytime soon as well? :classic_laugh:

Maybe they are modernizing f1 2018 to match their later game by say removing online coop championships and removing downforce to make the cars slower and harder to drive?

Here is a crazy thought in an official F1 game.. an option to lock exterior cameras.  Every other half way serious racer has it and CM has it in Dirt 2.0.  An official open wheel racer? "Let's encourage everyone to sit on top of the car so they can buy more paints to look at while they're driving."  "Brilliant. Promote this man."

As much as I love Halloween, if I see anyone in a lobby with a $3 Halloween paintjob before core things get addressed, they're getting punted. 

Same camber and toe on every single track dominating the leaderboards?  Not a single laser scanned track? 

They phoned in tuning, FFB, and tracks, and gave the finger to sim racers all while aggressively promoting wheels and pedals.

Funnily enough the next gen version of F1 for PS5 / XboxScarlet in 2021 very likely will have to be around 3 - 4 seconds slower than the current 2019 cars and have similar speed levels as the 2016 season if the projections of the "Gurus" are right.

 

But it wouldn't be the 1st time that they were wrong, 2019 was believed to be 1,5 seconds slower than 2018, yet the cars are around 0,5 - 1,5 seconds faster on all tracks this year.

 

Codemasters needs to start a "Live Season Update" service for future titles, to adjust the cars downforce, grip and engine power levels, as well as team packing order and driver speed / consistency.

 

Else, why call it a "officially licenced F1 product", if the performances are off?

Agreed. I get that you should allow anyone to play how they like, especially Youtubers as the presentation is much more important there than playing with realistic settings. Heck, they can put ABS and TC on full blast for all I care, as long as it's entertaining. But the official eSports series with the best drivers around (not denying that at all) playing with T-cam looks amateurish at best.

When I was doing FSR in rF1/2 - always locked to cockpit cam only, with only minimal seat adjustments allowed - it was always amusing when new teammates joined from AOR or whatever Codies league, and they kept whining for weeks on end about not being able to get used to cockpit cam. Eventually, as they got used to the more simulation-orientated approach of the league, it started to make sense to them - they got that it was supposed to mimic real life as closely as possible, including the view.

I get that AOR etc. can run whatever cameras they want as it's a private league. But the pro's should be forced to run everything as close to reality as they are able to.

But perhaps it's again the case of the ol' spaghetti code not allowing it to be coded in easily.

This link had been shared before but I couldn't find the post or I would have credited it. This video shows EXACTLY how silly the tcam view is as Lando Norris is 'challenged' by esports guys for a Spa hotlap. He does his cockpit view, making a couple of track limit errors with his legit attempt then the esports guy takes his turn and immediately switches to tcam view which Lando tries to change back while he's driving cos duh yes its obviously cheating. Those few seconds say it ALL! 

EDIT Skip to 1:40 to see the Lando attempt to stop the cheating. Calling those guys 'sim racers' is an insult to those lesser known people who actually race sim mode for realism. I'm surprised they didn't allow them to use a controller too!
