Tried it on 2019 version, it was perfect. I'm testing it now on the classic 2003 mod for F1 2020 and it seems to be working so far. Maybe I'm wrong ?
StrongestFish
StrongestFish
No, my mod is incompatible with 2003, but they uses his own version of dirty air parameters. But main point the same.

I like this mod very much as it gives you more battles. It is not aiming at being simulative because it erases the effect of dirty air by giving you in fact more downforce when following, but I like to play with this mod from time to time because it's a lot of fun. Good job Strongestfish!

Is possible to have a merge with puncture mod?
StrongestFish
StrongestFish
Yes, open xml's of punctures mod with text editor, set dirty air lines as described on this mod page and do manual installation of edited xml's.

I like the idea and it somewhat transformed the racing experience a lot. But personally, for me, not in a desirable way. I tried to naively introduce the mod into a MyTeam mode season 5. I am actually not sure whether this makes the AI drivers more aggressive (?), but what happened on 108% AI was that the cars in season 5 were SO fast and the slipstream was so overwhelming that they were constantly crashing into one another. I myself got punted from behind like 20 times and found myself needing to resort to flashbacks, which led to an interesting observation: it is common to get taken out by AI drivers in turn 1. If you then accept the DNF, usually only you and the other involved driver DNF. All other cars are fine. On the other hand, I tried 5 races with the mod where I used flashbacks in situations where I didn't cause an accident, and the most cars that finished any race were 7. ..... So, ... yes. For "Season 1" cars this might be fine, but good, hard racing is not to be had in saves that are advanced by a couple of seasons.

If you feel that there is too much DNF in races, then use the version without realistic damage. Just copy mod files again, but from folder called "with default damage".

Why doesn't the mercedes car have a .vtf file to modify with this mod
StrongestFish
StrongestFish
Because Codemasters located mercedes.vtf.xml file into common.erp.

Tengo una pregunta, ¿este mod hace que el daño en el coche sea realista o que la IA sea mas competitiva?
StrongestFish
StrongestFish
Option with realistic damage included. AI can overtake you more with this mod, but you can overtake then too.

<UpgradeWearFactor value="1.0" /> (one for front and one for rear) Number 2.4 gives 3 stops in 25% races with non-upgraded wear(first seasons of career) and 2 stops with upgraded tyre wear.
