F1 2020 Extreme, Medium and Realistic damage

F1 2020 Extreme, Medium and Realistic damage Update 11

Log in to download, or make sure to confirm your account via email
Annual damage mod here once again! ;)

This mod increases damage sensitivity in "Simulation" mode to increase amount of AI crashes.
It has the same effect on player and AI, so be careful.
Accidents are not scripted. They occur mostly when AI or player touch each other's wheels and wings during a fight. This means that the more fight, the greater chance of crash will be.

Affect only for modern F1 cars.

Included options:

Extreme: ultra crashes for funny experiments and videos.
Medium: Between 0 to 13 crashes per race(25% and more). Recommended for 5 laps-25% races.
Realistic: Realistic amount of crashes. Sometimes 2 crashes, sometimes zero.

This mod do not change interface. You will have default damage presets(reduced, full, simulation), but in fact damage sensitivity on "simulation" is bigger.

Installation: copy "2020_asset_groups" into main game folder. Steam\steamapps\common\F1 2020
Don't delete any of original game files before installation!

Works in:
-MyTeam & Driver career(including already started ones)
-Grand Prix
-Championships
-Split-screen

Mods not works in multiplayer (online).

Works on game v. 1.18

Files for copy-paste incompatible with installed skin mods. Here are instruction on how to combine damage mod with skin mods:
1.Install skin mod first.
2.Download Ego ERP Archiver 7.1 or newer here:
If you do not want to pay, then click little line "No thanks, just take me to the downloads"
3.Open folder Steam\steamapps\common\F1 2020\2020_asset_groups\f1_2020_vehicle_package\teams and find erp file of each team.
For example Ferrari: Steam\steamapps\common\F1 2020\2020_asset_groups\f1_2020_vehicle_package\teams\ferrari\wep\ferrari.erp
4.Open erp file in Ego ERP Archiver, in tab Xml files - click .vtf file (for example ferrari.vtf), click xml files -> import, and choose xml file from mod. Mercedes.vtf located into Common.erp, not in Mercedes.erp.

Отличный мод. Правда в когда открыл mersedes.erp то xml файлов не было, не знаю почему, может это из-за мода на ливреи

Xml от мерседеса находится в common.erp., и это упомянуто в инструкции о ручной установке. Кодмастерс разместили его там.
This mod is very well done but every time i paste it into to the game it deletes other mods that i already installed in. Is there some solution for that?
StrongestFish
StrongestFish
If you mean skin mods, then I wrote instructions about this in the description, and the mods of car characteristics replace each other. Choose one
it doesn´t work im stuck in a blackscreen everytime what is the problem

Don't delete "2020_asset_groups" folder before installation, don't install if you have already started race in career(saved in the middle).
It doesn't work for me. I get into the race and it only shows a black screen, and a "please wait" sign on the up left corner. I haven't downloaded or used any other mods and my damage setting is on simulation
StrongestFish
StrongestFish
Maybe it's because of you deleted the folder "2020_asset_groups" before installation of mod? Don't do that.
мод классный, без скинов работает лучше чем хотелось бы, а вот с модом на ливреи 21 года почему то действует исключительно на мой ред булл. наверное в архиваторе что то сделал не так. 9 звезд из 5 в любом случае
StrongestFish
StrongestFish
Спасибо !) В архиваторе надо для каждой команды сделать то, что ты сделал для ред булла.
Can i make my car have reduced damage and ai cars have realistic damage?
StrongestFish
StrongestFish
Maybe it's better to turn the setting in the game to "reduced", and the AI will be left with very sensitive damage. I haven't tested it myself, but some users have told me about it.
Another way: copy the files of all the teams from the mod, except for the one you will be driving for(save original). (if it's a Mercedes, then not Mercedes.erp, but common.erp)
The realistic damage mod opens up to more variety and "anything can happen" feel in a race, in a very good way. In the original game, if you don't use a flashback and spin by mistake, it is very difficult to regain positions if you play on a AI difficulty level that makes sense with your skill. But with this mod anything can happen and you can always hope that a crash will happen, deploying a safety car that can let you regain positions and pace.

Cheers! :)
it doesn't work for me, i'm stuck in a black screen

This is definitely not a mod issue. Maybe you installed skin mods before and then just copied the mod files? This is incompatible.
This is (in my opinion) the GREATEST mod in all of the f1 games, when put with the dirty air mod is feels and looks very realistic 11/10 Brilliant

Thank you! :)
Game crashed at austria.

I dont know what was the problem...
StrongestFish

Game crashes are a common problem for many people regardless of mods. The mod does not cause crashes, because it is a very simple thing that does not change structure of the game files.
This is actually a fun mod. It makes the AI play by the same rules as you and they stop being the indestructable tanks codemasters made them.

Using realistic i'm seeing 1 to 4 crashes every race on 50%, except for monza. Monza was a massacre on the first chicane and took out 6 cars.

Thank you for feedback :)
very bad mod, wheels are too easy broken
StrongestFish
StrongestFish
Of course, but this is main point of the mod.
Hi sorry don't know where else to post this (Discussion hasn't been used for awhile and see you replying to people here). 1st want to say this is a wonderful mod. My question is that you replied to someone saying this is compatible with your improved air mod, and to use the Realistic file, so can pair that one file with any of the 3 damage models on this one, or does it mean that you pair it with the Realistic file from this mod (meaning its not compatible with the Extreme or medium setting?). Thank you for your mod and taking the time to reply
StrongestFish

Files from dirty air mod contain damage parameters that are the average between medium and realistic. But because of the increased amount of fighting and overtaking, it has the same effect, as medium in the files of damage mod. If you want to say something else, write in feedback thread. I see the notifications by the same way.
First of all, great mod! But what I noticed during racing with it, is that the Mercedes isnt affected by it. Is there any way to fix this?
StrongestFish
StrongestFish
It means that you installed Mercedes file wrong. Install like in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CmNuZS_wt3w
Mod bellissima ma potresti farlo anche per la formula 2 2020?
grazie

No, I think F2 is very unpopular for driving in this game. Almost no one asks about it.
Hi!, i installed Improved dirty air for more battles , is it possible to merge it with this mod?. i would really like to use both mods. Thanks!
StrongestFish
StrongestFish
Improved dirty air already have combined option with this mod. Just choose that and install.
Is there the file of the mercedes? Because I can't find it.
Still excellent mod
StrongestFish
StrongestFish
Mercedes.erp no contains xml file, but Mercedes characteristics xml located in common.erp.
Can we all have a video of you INSTALLING this mod? every step from the beggining? ty
Incredibly underwhelming, mod only works if you really hit someone unlike the mods on previous games (I'm using Extreme on Simulation and it barely does anything)
The mod is excellent mate, I just miss an opportunity to change the files back to the original. Is there a reason it's not included in the files? Because I think verifying the game files for a heavy modder is very sickening to do. Keep up the great work as usual!
