Several Problems need fixing for F1 2011

Discussion in 'F1 2011 - The Game' started by Bradley Capps-Jenner, May 25, 2011.

  1. As we know, there are several problems that need fixing. One of these is when you go round a corner, hugging the apex near a wall, or just running close to a wall, the car stops still and wrecks if damage is on at the 'phatmom' or 'Invisible wall', at leaston Xbox 360 and PS3. Another problem is with the penalty system, where if someone stops in front of you on a straight, it gives you a penalty, or someone is whacking you in a corner, or down a straight, and if someone spins out in front of you, and you go on the grass to avoid it you get a penalty. The force India pit lane bug online, where it only goes 60 kmp/h down the pit lane after you stop, and also when you come to lap someone, I believe you shouldn't be able to make contact with them, so it doesn't mess your race, maybe they turn into a ghost car. Any other ideas please share with us.

    Pit lane speed limit?

    Why would you need to make contact with any other car on the track?
    If it gets you a penalty in F1 in real life, then it should get you a penalty in the game.
     
  3. sorry i typed it wrong I meant you shouldn't be able to make contact with them
     
  4. The most frustrating ones:
    the AI always overtakes you in pits
    They interrupt your qualifying
    They do not have fuel + tyre sims on
    The reputation system needs to be more generous... If I win WDC and WCC at Ferrari you still get kicked out
     
  5. and it takes so long for the team to release you in the pits, if there's a five second game between one car coming down the pit lane and the other it holds you in until it is absolutely clear
     
  6. For me, the best way F1 2011 can be improved is by providing an even playing field for AI and player - including tyre sim, fuel sim, penalties and fallibility.

    Regarding the wall issue, are you sure you didn't simply make contact with the wall instead of running close to it? I've driven like that loads of times and the only time the car 'wrecks' is if I actually crash into the wall.
     
  7. Agreed with those as well, especially the qualifying. Right now, they act like blocker cars! You easily overtake them on the straight and then at the next bend, they're doing their best to get back in front. This will be solved by... wait for it Codies, this might appear radical to you (although F1GP managed it twenty years ago)... real time qualifying and practice laps!
     
  8. What platform do you have it on if you have it on pc or ps3, I think it's only only xbox 360 but loads of my friends have had the same experience as I have regarding to the walls, especially at Monaco, Valencia and Singapore.

    I play on PS3 and Monaco does have one or two 'phantom' walls and bumps in the track that send you up into the air or spinning in circles
     
  10. PC.
     
  11. Yeah I have hit one going up from the first corner just as you start to take left sweeping corner.

    Yeah same problem here at Massenet.
     
  13. Getting blue flagged so the leaders over take me, usually due to penalties, and i'm faster than them so i over take and get blue flagged again although i'm getting away from them, and i get another drive through for this!!!!!
     
  14. Yer happens to me a lot there when riding on the apex, and at turn 14 at Valencia, wish they would name the corners there.
     
  15. yeah I got2 agree with you about the A1 cars,it really p`s me off when I go past the pits on afast quali lap and acar comes out of the pits and starts racing against you,but as soon as you let it buy,it slows down,What the chuffs all that about,very frustrateing.
     
  16. yeah the penalty system is wrong on F12010 on ps3,it bugs me when acar in front of me spins out,and I overtake on the grass,I get a 20second time penalty with 5 or 6 laps to go,Whata pain!
     
  17. one thing I`d like2 see on F1 2011 is team managers/technicians on the pitwall,on F1 2010 when your going in2 the pits the pitwall looks empty and unrealistic.
     
  18. More attention to detail all round would be good - including what you've said, as well as flags actually being waved instead of appearing as icons on the screen.
     
  19. Yeah this would be cool. That and the flashing lights around the track that show the flag colours too. They were there in 2010 but I never saw them flash once. Just made for good braking points sometimes!

    And that wall issue is on all platforms, I believe. I get it on PC in the most annoying places (Monaco into Casino, Singapore onto the Bridge).
     
  20. And also new rules that are in real F1, like the pit line exit rule, where you can't go over the white line as you come out of the pits, otherwise you get a penality
