F1 2013 wishlist

Discussion in 'F1 2012 - The Game' started by the_sigman, Jan 5, 2013.

  1. the_sigman


    I know it is quite early, but I would like to know what you want for the next game.

    For me:
    a) Better penalty system
    b) New modes (I liked this year's additions, with the exception of YDT), including one to make your setups for your career.
    c) Bans for rammers at online
    d) Better AI

    I really think the Wish list was not considered by CM they want to add New features but never iron the Bugs prior release.

    More aggressive AI, not that many bugs upon release, a more in depth career mode.

    At this stage I wish someone else took over from codemasters. Never have I come across a game with so many bugs upon release. Setups are totally messed up. No tyre scaling, no 75% distance. How hard would it be to come up with a few online race modes? Lazy shower of s...s.
    Graham Laing is right you might as well copy and paste last years thread because nothing changed.
    I only play it online, racing AI has no appeal to me at all.
    I should move this to the rant thread sorry.

    Two things that would make up for it in the next game is:
    Engineer info
    Pit boards

    The thing that bugs me the most is the lack of info the engineer gives. Even for it to be a bit more realistic we should be able to race with no OSD and the engineer to give you all relevant info lap by lap. And the most important thing in F1 that codemasters haven't thought of is a pit board very relevant in modern day F1 but no couldn't be arsed.

    The Problem is CM want to satisfy both Sim and Arcade Peoples at once.
    In such kind of games you can't expect the Most of Realistic Features. I Appreciate them for trying to do so. But for Majority of time they are going for New features and creating More new bugs to the existing one's which was making the game More and More unplayable.
    like 2011 Tire bug Post Patch #2 and Save game Bug for all the 3 series until CM fixes it in 2012.
    I remember Steve Hood once said he want to overhaul the setup system if they get the Licence extension and I was hoping now they can change the setup system as they got the extension.
    The Major Problems they need to iron out is AI Behavior.
    1. The AI come out for Out lap and they take the racing line they make us (the players) slow due to their out laps and finally making us Compromise our Flying lap.
    2. In a Race we are fighting for Positions and suddenly back marker appears on the racing line Defending his line like he was for Position. For some Players it may not be a Problem(I can add me into this list ;) ) but for Most of Players it was a Major problem.

    • Better penalty system
    • More AI levels
    • Custom practice/qualifying/race lengths
    • More setup-saving slots
    For me, the penalty system needs to be overwritten completely. They had the right idea with the 'give the position back' feature, but you should have about fifteen seconds, rather than eight(?) and you shouldn't get penalized for blocking when you slow to allow the driver behind to pass.

    Instead of four AI levels, the game should have about ten levels to make the game competitive for more skill levels. Note that I do not have any patches so the comparisons listed below are based on the way the game was first released.

    Level 1 - Amateur
    Level 2 -
    Level 3 - Intermediate
    Level 4 -
    Level 5 -
    Level 6 - Professional
    Level 7 - About where I currently am
    Level 8 -
    Level 9 - Legend
    Level 10 - A good challenge for even the very best players

    The ability to fully customize your race weekend length is something I really, really want!

    For practice: [1, 2, 3] sessions, each [30, 45, 60, 75, 90] minutes in length.
    For qualifying: One-round one-shot qualifying, three-round knockout one-shot qualifying, one twenty-minute session, realistic three-round knockout qualifying
    For the race: [5-real life number] laps

    And I'd like to see forty setup saving slots, for wet and dry setups at each circuit.

    I did have a massive list, but in the interest of "TLDR", here's the main ones.

    - A weather system that works.
    - Bring back FP1 & 2, and full season GP mode.
    - Stricter penalty sys.
    - When you damage your front wing it should affect your performance. In 2012 it seems that you have to smash the entire front wing off if you want to feel some understeer. IRL even if they lose a small piece then it makes a big difference.

    I have only one little wish: no F1 games from CM anymore.
    And if they are making F1 2013, they should release it in 2015 so they have time(!) to develop quality.

    That will do, as long as they dont try to rush to deliver "something". Its clear that CM is a game factory. All they want is money. eventually, that's what a company is about. I truly could not stand myself delivering a product with so many flaws. the best would be to throw away the current concept and start all over again. But as said: they dont have time for that. It would only result in more bugs. In the end they should change the name into: "F1 flawed".
    They wont be able to deliver a good solid F1 game as long as they keep hanging on their current bases. F1 2010 set the base and it was the wrong one. So in the end im very pessimistic about the F1 series from CM. At the moment i race F1 2012 with grinding teeth especially when it start to rain. Finally to give an answer to OP:

    - Slider for AI difficulty 80 % (very easy) - 120 % (Ultimate hardcore)
    - Slider for AI agression (idem dito as above)
    - Full support for Logitech / Fanatec / thrustmaster wheels with a complete set of options (like GTR2).
    - A complete overhaul of the weather system.

    But...this will not happen cause we all must mind those kids playing their consoles (got one myself a PS3 for blue ray movies).

    For once Lets Consider CM work and time schedule and their Intention of Making a Game for both Kind of Players(Arcade and Sim) so What kind of things they can fix and what they can Introduce/Reintroduce

    ...... But that means it would be like a real PC game ;)

    1. Cinematics. Podium Cinematics. Driver getting out of the car in case of impossibility to cotinue the race due do huge damage and stuff like that;
    2. Improved damage to the car in case of crash and huge crash, creating the necessity to visit the pits to change front wing or anything else in the car;
    3. More agressive (and balanced) AI
    4. FP1 and FP2
    5. More important engineer infos during the race;
    6. More slots to save setups;
    7. Qualifying in one session withouth loading, like in RL;
    8. Life on paddock whole thing.

    The "life on paddock whole thing" starts on YOU creating the design for YOU OWN helmet. As console player, what sucks for me is that I just can't create my own design and I am obliged to use standard designs. I talked to CM through their page on facebook and they said that is impossible to put selectable sponsors for helmets due to contracts issues. Ok. I don't get it but I respect.

    I like to be immersive on the game, so, in career, I want to be the driver during the whole weekend, not just during the Q's or the race. I want (or not) to grant interviews and talk to the engineers more often.

    Also, like in football games, a fanbase would be cool too, and a test at the begining of your career to LET THE TEAM chose you to sign a contract.

    One thing linked to sponsors (which is impossible due to CM contracts issues (sic)) is that you can "recruit" your own sponsors, based on your fanbase, or popularity, like Hamilton was sponsored by Reebok on gloves on boots.

    2.The lapped cars take back their lap when the safety car is out

    5.Warm up lap before the race
