      Well, this is very embarrassing! Instead of joining our Discord group where we can help you, the easiest way is to write "oh, this is so hard, etc etc". I believe you are capable to use your fingers and press "Ctrl+C" and find your local game folder where you again need you fingers for "Ctrl+V" my friend. Thanks!

    good mod, but there are some little bugs. Toro Rosso has the Force India livery aswell and if you select Force India, the game crashes.
    1. Karlito
      Author's Response
      Hahaha no man. That's Force India, but we gave them TR chassis for livery. And I don't believe game will crash with Force India, you probably made a mistake in installation. Anyway, thanks for the feedback.

    Really good mod going to try it out right now! Looks really promising from what i'm seeing. Only got some questions regarding installation of the mod. In the 'tyre' folder there are no files in the balanced 17 folder. Are the files in the balanced 16 folder also based on the wear of the 2017 tyres or still based on the 2016 tyres?
    1. Karlito
      Author's Response
      Thanks for review. Yea, I know it's maybe very hard to understand which folder is for what, but I already did new system with just 2 folders so it should be very easy for using. So please, be patient it should come out in next few days.

    ai is also too slow in general, can nearly qualify first in a renault.

    very bad update, fast car in qualy very slow car in the race and too much tyre degradation....the update before was better

      Author's Response
      #NoHaters Look man, I really don't have problems with others opinions, but I really hate sth like this. First of all, in last update (that was better than this one in your opinion) you only had 3 playable tracks, where now you have all 21. It cannot be better, right? Second, I also updated R.T.A (in this mod as you know) where now you have bigger (real) gap between two compounds (in last version of R.T.A all 3 compounds had same performances...). Yea, tyre wear is bigger now coz in last version you was able to do 1 stop where AI was doing 2 or 3 stops, and then you could always win races. Yea, IMO this is best update for this mod and you gave only 2 stars (worst ever for this mod). I cannot report you or sth like that, and I don't want, but yea, it's very unfair and unmotivating for both of us modders. Think about this man.

    Love the mod and the speed around the corners! The only issue is that I am struggling to get anywhere near the usual max speed. At Canada for example, I could barely reach 200 with the Merc. If possible, could you increase the top speed of the cars? Or a way I can adjust it myself? Other than that a super mod it's incredible. :)

    Excelent !
    On the next update, correct the maximum speed of the ferrari. Now it is as fast as the mercedes and force India, but the willians have the highest speed.
    If it is possible also the wear of tires, because it changes colors but the wear is the same as the original.
    1. Karlito
      Author's Response
      Thanks for review. Yeah, top speeds are changed for all teams already, just need to test sth and update will be live. Also, I don't know if I can change mfd tyre wear screen, I'll try to find right files for that. ;)

    good, but when you go from 6 gear to 7 (on the williams) the rpm goes down , like if you re going from 6 to 8. Please fix that, because is a great mod

      I already fixed that, but need to update it.

    Amazing job mate. But the transmission of the williams car isnt correct. 7th gear is too long and when you go from 7th gear to 8th gear the rev number goes from 11400 to 11300 which is also not correct. Just give it a try in timetrial and you know what i mean. In Monza all the cars rev up to 12500/12600 because of the standard setup the AI uses. For the correct speed we need to wait for tracks like spa in the real f1 season. For now all other cars are ok and i guess they wont blow up in a 100% race ^^ The transmission of the manor car is only correct and good in the version "no manor". in "yes manor" the car has a very short transmission and reaches only 300 with drs in Monza.

    nice mod, but the gearbox is too fast, 8th gear at 250 km/h isn't realistic. I try an 100% race in australia, and my engine broke after only 25 laps, and at the end, only 8 cars have finished...
    1. Karlito

      Wait really? Only 8 cars? Hmm, I didn't have time for testing so I'm little surprised.

      Yeah, thanks man. For sure, I have more updates to come.

    Love this mod, but now the tyres changed in every track and not only Australia and Russia so please fix it, thanks, in Spain it's supersoft and China ultra soft please fix we want ultra only at a Australia and Russia just like real f1 2017
    1. Karlito
      Author's Response
      First of all, thanks for review! About tyre selection: you need to change "softer" folder to "normal" folder when you want to have normal/original tyre selection (e.g.SS,S,M in China or S,M,H in Spain). When you drive in Melbourne or Russia, you need to use "softer" folder. I know this is very hard, I will try to do program or sth like that to make "life easier", but because of limits in modding this game, I think this is very good to have US,SS,S combination like in real life. :)

    First of all I love the mod! But when I drive around on a long straight, the car only goes about 300km/h when it used to be 330/340 do you know how to fix this issue?
    1. Karlito
      Author's Response
      340 is too fast for this season I think. There's no fix for that. But as I updated mod right now, cars can reach around 330 in Melbourne so I think it's okay. But thanks for review.
