2008 Season Mod 1.1

This mod brings F1 2014 back to the 2008 season.

  1. wpinrui
    Hi everyone! I would like to introduce you to my first mod, the F1 2008 Season Mod for F1 2014. I often download mods from you guys from this site so I am very excited to contribute for the first time! I hope you will like it.

    Thank you Wilbur Chavez for making wireframes and 3D models to make modding so much easier.

    BACKUP your game files! This mod WILL CORRUPT your save file so please backup those as well. Extract the files with 7-zip or similar programmes, and then copy and replace the files in your F1 2014 game directory.

    Summary
    All the car models in this mod are based on the Red Bull RB10 due to its relative ease to mod.

    I painted these myself - please excuse the Honda and the Toro Rosso because I literally took the brush and painted it like crazy (though I like how the Toro Rosso turned out; my sincere apologies if you don't!). The car performance is true to the season (e.g. BMW Sauber is the 3rd fastest car) and I have edited the database for team tiers and other AI performance adjustments. I did made all races use medium and hard tyres so that you won't have to worry too much about tyre wear. I read the terms of service and discovered I can't link to other mods here, but there's a Bridgestone mod out there so go look for it!

    The language file (only English) has been edited for driver names and the year. I would appreciate it if anyone could tell me about bugs in here or anything that takes the immersion out of the game.

    The frontend folder has been edited such that the pictures of team logos, cars and drivers have been included.

    The garages folder has been edited so that each team garage is at least the right colour. I have not spent too much time on this area as we hardly see the garage interiors anyway but I can update these textures in future quite easily.

    Known Issues
    Everything in the characters folder is messed up at the moment, including gloves and race suits and teamwear. I will update these when I learn how to make them less abysmal. Edit: Updated! Some of the textures still look a bit amateurish but they are at least a lot better than the first release.

    I don't know how to paint helmets, so I gave the existing helmets to their corresponding drivers (e.g. Hamilton will have his helmet) while giving slightly modified original Codemasters helmets to other drivers.

    Conclusion
    Please feel free to ask questions in the discussion! And as you might expect, you can't play online with this mod.

    Thank you for your interest!

    All in all the mod is great, but please try to close the gap between professional and expert. In my opinion is a gap from 2-3 seconds to big.

    Absolutely awesome mod. Go to the Discuss This Mod tab for it and you'll find some other mods to use with it that will make it even closer to the real 2008 season too and help enhance it.
    Seriously great mod, wpinrui clearly put a lot of work in.

    Great Mod.
    Can't wait for the update.
    One thing I noticed is when you do a normal Qualifign and you look at your TV-screen in the garage the names of the drivers are mixed up. Maybe you can fix that?

      I noticed that too but somehow the changes I make in the language file to try and solve that problem don't seem to fix anything so at the moment I don't know where I can fix that. Nonetheless thanks for the review!

      Thank you for the review! I'll think about it but no promises xD
      Plus, at the moment I'm still working on updating this mod - race crew, pitcrew and race suits etc.

    Great work ! Can you add more languages soon ?

      Thanks for the review! Sadly I only have the English language file installed so I can't really add other languages unless I can find those files somehow.

    1. wpinrui
      Author's Response
      Thank you! About the DRS, I don't know how to do it personally but there's a mod for F1 2013 that apparently also works for 2014 and if you're interested you could check that out.
