Fun tweak for the Bored and less Serious

Discussion in 'F1 2012 - The Game' started by Phoenixsing, May 29, 2013.

  1. This thread is for mods which may be useful or useless to you. Don't forget to make backup while having fun !
  2. Fun Mod No. 1 : Computer vs computer

    Remember games which allow you to let computer competes against computer. If you are tired of racing, you can let your chosen driver to compete for you and just watch. The mod works in Career mode also. It may be useful for modders to test their mods or for racers to compare therir timings with those of ai.

    Details: Look for startsequence.xml in cutscene folder.

    Change <Switch type="human" /> to Switch type="ai" />

    ps To take back driving from your driver, use F1/flashback. Restart race will return to him. You will find that most of the time, ai do not reverse to get out of stuck situation. lol.

    Better Alternative: clear datacache, start from fresh original file. Delete the line <Switch type="human"/>.

    Farewell bonus:

    Ever wonder why ai start offline during restart ?
    To fix a CM bug of ai start with twisted steering when restart/redflag in normal game:

    Delete <Switch type="human" /> and insert the line as follows:

    <!-- Enable camera change control, and vehicle throttle control -->
    <Event type="Controller">
    <Camera enabled="true" />
    <Vehicle enabled="throttle_only" />
    <Switch type="human" />

    Hehe! Cool find! ai just started a 100% Melbourne Quick Race on pole for me, but 'it' didn't pit when told to by the RE on lap 11! Guess I had to F1 and take over!

    The cool thing is, ai never misses any apex unlike me! :inlove:

    Thanks for sharing! :thumbsup:

    This doesn't really constitute a proper mod, it's just a minor tweak. :)

    I have therefore moved it to the General F1 2012 discussion forum, and renamed the thread 'Fun tweak for the bored and less serious', rather than the original 'Fun mod for the bored and less serious'
  7. I have other "minor tweaks" but I will not post them as I am not happy here. Bye Bye.

    So you are telling me it is a mod and not a minor tweak, changing one variable?
  9. I believe a mod also requires a file to download to replace the original.

    Adding a farewell bonus .... epic! :thumbsup:
  13. Those who want ai to take over control in F1 2013, this mod works too. Just delete the line <Switch type="human"/>. As in F1 2012, no kers, drs and pitstop when ai is in control.
