Niko's Realistic 2005 Database
Hi, F1 2014 community! It is my pleasure to introduce you to probably my best mod to date. I was inspired by @Thang Nguyen's brilliant job with the original F1 2005 Mod. I fell in love inmediately with the sound of the V10 engines and the whole concept of a classic season playthrough. However, I inmediately noticed that there were some issues with the balancing of the human and AI cars performance. So, I took the time and built a database that leaves me pretty happy with the results while also balancing the human/AI car performances.

Remember this is an era of very little overtaking with no DRS, so be prepared to see very few overtakes on-track. Pit-stops, however, are when all the action really happens!

Give it a try during this weird times that we are living in 2020 and tell me what you think !

MAIN FEATURES
1. The grid is split in four different tiers.

10. New team objectives for Career Mode.

* Please note that car performance IS included when computing the OVR ratings of a driver.
** The OVR ratings are strictly given by math and do not reflect any personal opinion on each driver. Also, they are based strictly on 2005 season performance.

TIER SPLIT
Tier 1:
McLaren, Renault
Tier 2: BAR, Toyota, Ferrari, Williams
Tier 3: Red Bull, Sauber
Tier 4: Jordan, Minardi​

In general, Tier 1 to Tier 3 are not that far appart in performance, so there is chance to see cross-tier battles on track. However, there is a major gap between first three tiers and Tier 4.

CAR PERORMANCE
(human player, also affects AI when simulating or fast-forwarding sessions)

100:
McLaren, Renault
97: BAR, Toyota
95: Ferrari, Williams
93: Reb Bull
92: Sauber
87: Jordan
85: Minardi

DRIVER ATTRIBUTES (AI only)

Qualy OVR: is a measurement of how well the driver is expected to do at one-lap pace when not racing other cars closely (practice, qualyfing or when 'alone' in the race). The higher the value, the fastest one-lap pace.
Race OVR: is a measurement of how well the driver is expected to do when closely racing other cars. The higher the value, the better chance of gaining/holding a position.
Raw Speed: is a measurement of the speed the driver enters and exits corners. The higher the value, the higher the speed he carries through the corner. As opposed to Qualy OVR and Race OVR, this attribute can not be seen in the driver selection menu (so is 'secret').

Note: these attributes ARE influenced by the car performance.
