Finally Purchased 2011, couple of questions

Discussion in 'F1 2011 - The Game' started by Lenard Schaeffler, May 28, 2012.

  1. First, is there any mod that will allow you to start with any team, without dropping said team down a few tiers like last year?

    Second, does tyre wear effect the computer this year? It bugged me to have to turn it off last year, hoping this year I dont have to.

    Yes & yes.

    The team thing works differently, tho - someone explained it in the thread, I've just played through one season in a Tier 5 team and joined McLaren. :)
  3. I think the top teams mod still works by making the top teams into tier5. So if you do good then next season your car will go all Benjamin Button on you and get worse.

    It's fun if you just want to take a crack at WDC for one season though

    Yeah, that's the biggest problem. Messing with the tiers after your career has been started already can (and probably will) end in corrupting your saved game.

    However, you could try to turn everything around after installing the mod. I.e. you swap ALL the performance data from Tier 1 with Tier 5, swap everything from Tier 2 to Tier 4 and so on. Basically, you'll need to make Tier 5 the worst but keep the top teams in there. That way your car will improve but well...the first one or two seasons will be harder. Just a weird idea, never tried that.
  5. Thank you glight and Herr Endres
