Safety Car


Recommended Posts

Hi,

Regarding Safety car, I have played around 31 races so far in my team career mod and I have never gotten more than a VSC. I do not know if Im unlucky or something is wrong.

I do enjoy the game quite alot but I feel I would like it abit more with some more safety cars that can change races around.

Ofc I've selected Safety Car on in the settings, my other settings are :

Simulation Damage

50% Race

95 in Difficulty 

 

Thank you in advance

Unless there's been dramatic crashes or cars stuck on the circuit you won't see much of the SC. It is interesting and surprising you and others have struggled seeing SC/VSC. Your chances of seeing it should be higher at circuits like Azerbaijan and Monaco. There are some bug reports about it not deploying when you think it should. If you've got some video of incidents you think need a SC add a report to one of the bug posts 🙂

Hmm, I see..

I've seen quite some big but maybe as you say not big enough. It just seems from speculations that some other people are having SC for less. But I might be wrong here.

 

Does Simulation Damage effect AI or just player cars btw? and does Difficulty reduc AI mistakes? If you or anybody else know 🙂

It is unfortunately something that hasn't been consistent in the last few years. People have had different experiences with SCs even when using the same settings. Some are even seeing too much of it at the moment. 

Simulation damage does affect AI. Not too sure with the difficulty. Higher difficulty means faster AI, whether it increases chances of mistakes is something I've personally seen.

I had the same issue, I saw someone mention that they didn’t happen on Simulation Damage but a switch to full damage worked. I switched from Sim to Full and Voila, the first time a car got stuck on track—> safety car! Did a whole season on sim damage, no SC. Now on full damage SC comes out when it should.

I am on my 3rd season of my team and have only had 2 Safety Cars in 3 seasons. I have had a few races where drivers have stopped in dangerous locations around the track and no SC or VSC was deployed. SC has always been an issue with the F1 games, they either come out at way to often or not at all, pretty unrelaistic.

It's strange. I had two SCs in my first two MyTeam races but have not even had a VSC or many retirements since then.

I hope it's not because I started a second MyTeam save to try and do the Podium Pass challenges, because I'll be kicking myself if that has somehow affected the code in a way that means the SC doesn't come out in my actual MyTeam save.

Sounds interesting, might actually try it out to see if it changes something

 

Since Im soon at Singapore I hope to see it work there

That's odd, SC had been deploying fairly consistently for my MyTeam playthrough, almost at least one (sometimes 2) every race (Not just VSC), I run simulation damage (no mod), 50% race length and 103%-106% AI.

I raced at Singapore yesterday, and I was hoping to see the SC but sadly not.

I have yet not tried to lower damage from Simulation to Full to see if that changes anything.

 

I did however have 2 VSC which is an improvment
