F1 2012: 5 Grip Levels 1.0

Enhanced Formula 1 sim-driving experience in Single-Player mode.

  1. Salut Gilles
    Single-Player mode only. This mod provides 5 enhanced grip levels in F1 2012, along with 1 original surface_materials.xml file for restoring the game's default grip level as needed.

    1- Unzip the mod and open 1 of the following grip-level folders:

    GRIP+10%
    GRIP+20%
    GRIP+30%
    GRIP+40%
    GRIP+50%

    2- Copy the chosen surface_materials.xml file into your Steam\SteamApps\common\f1 2012 folder.

    Lap times are much faster using the exact same settings! And the car does not want to fly everywhere around anymore... Even when barely touching a curb's corner... A lot more like RL. And the DRS can remain wide open in manageable curves...

    Does not work online, so don't even try.

    A nice mod for those (like me) who are really noobs in the games of F1. The 20% grip make an incredible difference and help familiarize you with more complex circuits such as Japan or Germany.
    Good work, dude. greetings from Chile!
