2018 Fantasy Season 1.4.1.1

A season mod that gives closer racing and improves career mode and is similar to mydriver

  1. Apex
    Make sure you have no mods installed before installing this mod if you encounter problems!

    This is my first mod and is a fantasy mod that has influence from real life at all.



    2018 season background:

    In 2018, the FIA got rid of v6 engines in favour of v8 turbo hybrids (sound by: Ace9921). This caused 2 new engine manufacturers to enter and it caused Honda to leave the sport after a dismal 2017. Pirelli also decided to increase the wear rate of their tyres by 10% to try to make the races more interesting.

    Pecking Order:

    This mod only really has 2 tiers:

    Key: Car (Engine) - Cornering ability, Engine power.

    Tier 1:
    Ferrari (Ferrari) - Medium cornering, medium power.
    Monster Mercedes (Mercedes) - Medium cornering, medium power.
    Audi F1 Team (Audi) - Low cornering, very high power.
    Renault (Renault) - Medium cornering, high power.
    Mclaren (Renault) - Medium cornering, high power.
    Red Bull (Aston Martin) - High cornering, low power.


    Tier 2:

    Torro Rosso (Aston Martin) - Low cornering, low power but low drag.
    Force India (Mercedes) - Low cornering, medium power.
    Williams (Mercedes) - Low cornering, medium power.
    BMW Sauber (Ferrari) - very low cornering, medium power.

    Team by team:
    Mercedes:
    After winning both 2017 titles the Mercedes team have fallen behind in all areas of development but are still near the front of the field. They keep their successful 2017 pairing and sign a Monster energy sponsor contributing to a new livery courtesy of TimeOut73:
    [​IMG]

    Ferrari:
    After a strong 2017, ferrari somewhat held back on their aero development to allow them to increase their engine performance. They also keep their 2017 pairing of Räikkönen and Vettel. They also keep their 2017 livery:

    Red Bull:
    Red Bull continue their aero dominance however, after falling out with renault, Verstappen and Ricciardo are now powered by an Aston Martin engine and have a new livery to boot courtesy of Zarresz:

    Force India:

    After another surprise 4th place Force India have lost some performance due to their Mercedes engine and have also lost Sergio Perez in favour of Mercedes junior George Russell.
    [​IMG]

    Williams:
    Like Force India, Williams have lost heaps of performance from their Mercedes power and are now one of the bottom 2 teams. They keep Lance Stroll and Sergey Sirotkin replaces the retired Felipe Massa.
    [​IMG]

    Renault:
    Now that they only have 2 teams to focus on, the Enstone team have greatly improved their engine to the disgust of Red Bull. They have an all new line up of Robert Kubica and F2 star Oliver Rowland and they have switched to a livery that greatly resembles both their DAMS an E.Dams teams.
    [​IMG]

    Torro Rosso:
    Like Redbull, Torro Rosso switch to Aston Martin Power. They replace Daniil Kvyat with 2016 GP2 champion Piere Gasly and their new bright livery is the opposite to how their 2018 looks in testing.
    [​IMG]

    Audi:
    After wanting to return to Nascar, Haas F1 was bought out by Audi. The german manufacturer has taken advantage of the v8 rule change to create an engine far above all others. They bring with them German and Le Mans winner Nico Hülkenberg and Mexico's Sergio Perez. Livery courtesy of bootsy.

    Mclaren:
    After finally severing ties with Honda, Mclaren sign a Renault partnership that managed to convince Fernando Alonso and Stoffel Vandoorne to stay. Livery by XCalinX.
    [​IMG]

    BMW Sauber:
    After securing a huge sponsorship from German manufacturer BMW, Pascal Wehrlein could stay at the team and Marcus Ericsson was dropped as the team's main backer was no longer Swiss. Ferrari also used their influence by giving sauber free 2018 engines as long as they gave a seat to F2 champion Charles Leclerc. Livery by dasd.

    And a thanks to Kris for giving me just a bit of advice.

    Note - when using career mode, if you drive for Sauber or Audi or mclaren, your number will not show up. Also, I would appreciate feedback as I have not been able to fully test this mod at every circuit. Remember that this doesn’t work if you simulate or accelerate time.

    Also this mod is only in English, French and German

    If you enjoy the mod feel free to donate any lose change

    So I've came across this as I was searching some mod for F1 2017, saw Kubica as Renault driver ... Pretty sure my old mouse broke down when I smashed that download button hard :). Can't wait till I'll install and check it out. Who knows, maybe I'll record something like "The Kubica's Return" including : Robert's comeback to BMW.

    Important question!

    Can you be the one and only guy, who can show how to edit this damn car performance in 2017? There is not a single guy out there who shows how to do it. I did it like in 2016, but there are a few different files and when I try to upgrade certain things, the car does not really improve. I am begging you! Can you please make a video on that thing, its the last thing I need to know to mod this game my way.

    Every time I decide to redownload F1 2017, this mod is always redownloaded with it. It's wonderfully designed, put together and it deserves so much more than 5 stars. Loving your work. Make sure your getting started on Fantasy 2019 :P

    This mod is incredibly well made but i have an issuse that everytime when a McLaren is in a cutscene or i want to drive it the game crashes. I think that it is just a mistake with my game but it would be cool if you could give me some fixing tips or something.

      It is a late reply but my next steps are to change the pit crew outfits. Also, don't apologise if English isn't your first language.

    But when I drag and dropped everything in my F1 2017 file and than start the game, it will crash as soon as I get on track. Is there a potential fix for this?

      Did you have any mods installed before? Restore the game and try again either way.

    Great Mod so far. Couple of things I've spotted a couple of fixes:

    - Rowland's name isn't in capital letters in the HUD during races, whilst all other names are.

    - When Hulkenburg's name has the first initial it says R.Hulkenburg rather than N.Hulkenburg (due to Hulkenburg using Grosjean's AI)

    And now a couple of suggestions if possible:

    - It would be cool if the whole pack was a little closer together. Perhaps give all Merc powers a slight engine boost, give Mercedes slightly less good downforce and perhaps improve Force India's downforce a little.

    - Would be cool if Force India and Williams had new liveries. I've never done a livery before but I might try to attempt this myself.

    - Would also be nice if photos of drivers were replaced for the grid sequence at the start of races.

    Overall though, this is a great Mod. Super easy to install and works perfectly. Tested it out at Canada and had the Top 12 covered by just over half a second in qualifying which was super cool.
