    Sorry about my last rating of three stars but now I have it working I think it is by far the best mod out there just one tiny improvement of ai difficulty is needed as I normally race on legend but on this I can beat ultimate so if you could up the difficulty slightly that would be much appreciated

    I have followed the instruction on how to install it - gotten all the extra mods needed for it to work properly - yet, the only thing I get out of it whenever I start Career, Quickrace or Time Trial, is my game crashing. I tried picking the mod apart, only installing one part at a time. That resulted in all the parts working when not being put together, but as soon as you put 2 of your mods together (main mod + any extra mod) it crashes. It didn't use to do this, so I'm very dissatisfied with the result. However, I have been very pleased with your past uploads, so I'll leave it on 4-stars.

    Can't wait for the actual F1 2017 game to come out, I'm so excited!

    I have done exactly like you are supposed to do on the copy/paste installation, I have all the extra mods you need - and still, when I start the game it's just the regular F1 2016! Any help on this?

    I appreciate the work you put on this mod, it's really amazing. But I am facing a small problem with a crash on the Monaco and Canada tracks, is there any solution to it?
    And one more thing, can you change Strolls car number as it is still seen as 77.
    I went with the copy paste installation as it was a time-saving method.

    Hope to get a proper solution to the problem and keep up the good work.

      Author's Response
      Well man, that just means you didn't read ReadME! file. Try Singapore or Austria with 2017_TYRE_ALLOCATION folder and game will crash too ;). I did this on purpose, to warn you, and yeah, shame you gave only 3 stars for your ignorance!

    I mean, why did you exchange Manor and Mercedes in the MOD? Now Haryanto leads my championship... Is there an efficient way the rechange them?
    1. Karlito
      Author's Response
      Unfortunately we were forced to do that for upcoming 2017 strategies. Restart career mode/or finish it is only fix I'm afraid.

    Need more work. The ferrari is too fast compared to mercedes (mostly in acceleration), at some track the redbull is faster than the mercedes wtf ? the mclaren is a bit too fast in straight, force india is too slow
    1. Karlito
      Author's Response
      Man I cannot tell you how much I love people like you are. Tell me where is Ferrari too fast please, I don't know I didn't test all tracks! Where is RB faster than Merc? I just know they are 1 sec off (only in Monaco, 4/5 tenths)! And, for McLaren, just do one-shot quali in Bakuu and you will see McLaren on front row my friend!! Shame for all our hard work, especially for Copy/Paste installation and ReadME. We all went/go to school man! ;)

      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.

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