R&D Objective question.

Discussion in 'F1 2010 - The Game' started by DanJenkz, Jul 26, 2011.

  1. Hi guys, this seems a stupid question but in practice on career mode, when you have R&D objectives to do, do you have to play through the whole of practice? As earlier when i was in Kuala Lumpur, i gained the objectives in each sessions then skipped straight to the next session, and at the end my race engineer said something like "you haven't met any objectives in practice", which confused me! :confused:
    Thanks in advance.

    EDIT: i'm driver 2 by the way.
     
  2. Aha think i've cleared it up myself, fast-forwarded the sessions in China instead of skipping them and it says i've hit all the objectives.
     
  3. i believe you cannot skip to next session, instead go onto the lap times screen and fast track it to the end of the session, hope this helps
     
  4. I normally skip to the next practice session after doing a few laps and I have always had the upgrade. It show up on the monitor (in the r&d section) at the beginning of qualifying. I've read a lot on here that you have to play through the whole session or fast forward in order to get the upgrades, which I'm a bit confused with.
     
  5. I do the same as Gareth, get the desired laptime then just skip to the next session and ive always got the upgrade aswell. I don't know what the deal with skipping sessions is but im on the 7th year in career, 39 rep and last season i was with mclaren and my agent said to me that she had bad news, they had to let me go, i won the team mate challenge and got all the upgrades available and made all my qual and race objectives for the season, i just dont get it, 7th year, 6 WC and have never had an offer of staying at a team.
     
  6. Your career only goes up to seven years. That's the longest option the game does, I'm in the fifth season of a five year career with Williams and won't get an offers from any teams as it's my last season. Or I might have read your post wrong; were you let go from Mclaren with seasons left in your career?
     
  7. Yes i was with Mclaren for season 6, they let me go before season 7

    A bad quali means I can go forwards in the race.

    Andrew have you always got your seat from the rival challenge system, or from a contract offer?
    I'm a bit naive on this one as I have stayed with Lotus for 3 years and signed for yr 4.
    I was just wondering if maybe the game is set to kick you out after 1 year if you got the seat from the rival challenge.
    My understanding is that it was inserted into the game because ppl wanted to get seats in the top teams faster than career in its original format would allow. So maybe they have a 1 season limit on seats gained in that way??
     
  9. Yes they do. I got seats at Mclaren and Ferrari after beating rivals and it is only for one season, even if you exceed the objectives.
     
  10. Thx guys, that is what my problem is then, my first season was with lotus but all the next seasons where with either red bull, mclaren or ferrari from rival beats, i thought they were letting me go cause of Rep but i had 39 rep in season 6 and still didnt get a renew on the contract, so that is what it is. I dont see the point of the rival beat system in the game, hope they take it out for career mode in 2011.
