This is a GP2 2015 season mod, my second mod for F1 2014. If you found F1 boring this season, GP2 certainly wasn't, so this mod will put you into the Dallara GP2/11 car.
This mod is ENGLISH only. If you want to request more languages, please send me the language_xxx.lng file in the language folder in your F1 2014 game directory (feel free to PM me) and I will upload it so as to expand the language selection.
This mod WILL CORRUPT your save, so please BACKUP your files first! Installation is simply by extracting the downloaded file with 7zip or similar, then copying and replacing the files into your F1 game directory (usually C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\F12014)
You cannot play online with this mod. Yes, you will be slower, even more so than a 2015 McLaren-Honda, but you still can't play online.
GP2 is a spec series, so all the cars have the same performance, are skinned on the Red Bull RB10, and have a top speed of about 285 km/h with 6 gears (as per real life), depending on your downforce levels. As F1 2014 has only 11 teams, Hilmer and Lazarus have been excluded from this mod (sorry to those who are fans). Also, the drivers in this mod were chosen based on who drove the most rounds for each team. Again, sorry to fans of drivers not included in this mod.
For the most realistic career mode experience, you may want to do the medium length career (which has 10 feature races of about 180km length each), or you can do the regular 19 race season which alternates between feature races and sprint races. The sprint races have their own qualifying unfortunately, and they take place at tracks where GP2 does not actually go.
Due to the different car performances, the difficulty may be different to your experience in F1 2014. If you find it too easy or too difficult (to the point that changing the AI skill level does not help), please leave some feedback so that I can change it.
Season Challenge is now fixed!
Helmets are not my thing, so all the drivers' helmets are helmets already in the game (including Codemasters' own helmets) which kinda look a little like their actual helmet.
Car textures may lack details on the real cars (e.g. certain sponsors, car numbers, stripes etc) but this is due to mirroring and idiosyncrasies of the texture files. Or, it could be for aesthetic purposes (e.g. Russian Time's huge thick white stripe that goes across the whole car... what were they thinking?).
The timing screens show the wrong 3-letter names of drivers. This cannot be avoided, because it's either this, or the driver pictures not showing up in game menus. I chose the former, because driver pictures not showing up is a more noticeable problem.
No, you will never - NEVER - progress to F1 in this mod. Not if you win a race, not if you win all 95 races. It won't happen. Also, the world champion can remain in GP2 (unlike real life) so get used to eating Vandoorne's dust.
If you find more issues, please leave me some feedback because as a one-man team I have not had the opportunity to do much testing. I really appreciate any help I can get to make this mod even better!
Please feel free to ask questions in the discussion, and have fun racing!
