    The clue is in the title.

    A few days ago 'Hatta' the CM Community Manager stated this in their forum :-

    CM have currently switched to Ninja mode regarding F1 2015 :ninja:

    That doesn't sound too good. Either they're not going to make a March release and it will be next October or some other delay maybe? Or they've gone into production with Reiza studios and it will be the most amazing title ever?

    I would guess that they don't want to commit publicly to any game features, until they are well along the development route :)

    Graham do you play F1 on PC and do you play any other sims

    Yup I do, and on PC only.

    F1 2014 (have the whole series)
    Assetto Corsa
    GSCe (have the whole series)
    DTM Experience
    Formula Truck
    rFactor 2
    Race 07 + GT Power + GTR Evolution

    Project Cars on pre-order

    In reality I don't play Race 07 + add-ons or STCC/WTCC any more, and I rarely touch rFactor2 & DTM at the moment.

    Lot's of games, but not enough time :)

    I like Ninja Mode. Less marketing nonsense, means more time to develop a solid game. I hope they do it all right this time.

    I was only asking as I only ever see you doing stuff with F1.

    I'm the F1 20xx moderator mostly :)

    Sometimes Bram let's me out of my cage and annoy the rest of the website :) :whistling:

    I can't wait for the PR release a year down the line that says "Now without Caterham and Marussia" as a realism feature.

    But cynicism aside, my fingers are crossed that this means they'll actually do it justice this time (I still think F1 2010 is their best one to date).

    If they did pre-alpha screenshots like they did in F1 2010 with 2009 cars, I would think...not bad. What would you guys think?

    You already know that the mod has been removed (as a WIP). However if you have a modding question, it should go here :-

    Modding Questions

    If you want to recruit help with your mod, I don't see anything wrong with posting in the modding requests thread here :-

    Modding Requests

    This thread/forum (F1 2015) is not the correct place to post about F1 2014 mods.

    Cheers :)
  13. I think the reason is clear.

    Next release will probably be early next year, but if they announce now, together with the (well deserved) horrendous reviews of 2014, they will hardly sell a single extra copy.

    If hype would earn them anything, they would use it.
  14. I understand Graham but I was talking about the fact it is an F1 2015 mod so people can play it
  15. I think it is natural there are not announcements in 2014. F1 2013v2 was released few weeks ago, they won't go and promote a new game right away.

    And I have my doubts about a March release. Funnily enough not because I think CM are a worthless studio (which they are, duh) but because it just look like a very hard task. Usually the cars are revealed towards the end of January and the teams do the revealing themselves (which means they decide what to show) so we might not see a detailed look until the pre-season tests. And then they need at least Australia to pass so we can have an idea of what the order of the field is (not that CM care. I hate how one car is equally good everywhere instead of this being track-dependent. But of course that would require tons of work to create an engine which recognizes aero/chassis values and puts them onto the track. Which does not coincide with CM's plug-and-play policy for kids)

    The idea this time though (which is long overdue), is that F1 2015 will be updated throughout the season. So the game can be tweaked to reflect the changes.

    Whether they will really do that this time who knows? It was a something they planned to do in F1 2012, but found it too hard to do.
  17. Oh, I know that. But things like car models have to be created before releasing the game:roflmao: Although I wouldn't put past CM to release a game with only a Ferrari and a Merc and couple of tracks for example:roflmao::whistling: Of course with the promise that sometime later will see a complete game. All that at the bargain price of 50/60 euros:roflmao:

    There would still be the need for a strong base even if they plan to update throughout the season. Actually 90% of the game should be done before it's released, regardless if they are updating in during the season. I doubt they'd be overhauling the game mid-way through the seasons - they'll probably just change liveries, track ad boards, grid order and stuff like that.
  18. I reckon Codemasters should just sit out 2015, and make an awesome game for 2016 though! Although CM think $$$$ are more important than the fans, maybe we should just pirate the game, and say we where waiting for the game to be good?
  19. They already decided to sit out 2014 and now you want them to sit out 2015 as well? :laugh:
