Niko's Realistic 2020 Database 1.3.1 (Final)

YOU NEED TO DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL SKYFALL F1 2020 SEASON MOD BEFORE INSTALLING THIS DATABASE MOD.

Hey guys! Here I bring you the first version of this database after having some real life racing YEY! I'm sorry for taking so long, but covid, uni and life have gotten in the way. Anyway, enjoy! :D

This is the last update after the season has concluded. All performance values and stats are after 2020 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. There are major changes to human car performance as well as AI car performance. The gap between Mercedes and Williams has now incresed to about 2.4-3.2 seconds depending on the circuit, so the grid is more spread (more realistic than previous 1.2-2.0 gap).


THE GRID
1. Mercedes, Red Bull

With these cars you should expect to be winning races and getting lots of podiums.
2. Racing Point, McLaren, Renault
With these cars you should expect to get a few podiums and some solid points per race.
3. Ferrari, AlphaTauri
With these cars you should expect to score a few points per race.
4. Alfa Romeo, Haas, Williams
With these cars you will have to fight very hard to score a few points.

WHAT'S IN THIS DATABASE MOD?
Realistic car and driver performance for both player & AI cars based on 2020 F1 Season.
Realistic Grid for Race Only GPs.
Every team name upgraded (ENGLISH ONLY).
New Tyre wear levels for each track (now you can have 1-2-3 pit stops strategies in a dry race depending the car and track).
Updated driver stats until date.
• Team Objectives for Career Mode updated.

TIPS

Excellent mod as always... Just a Question. Top teams and cars usually use Harder tires for Q1 and sometimes they are out in q1... is there a way to change this thing?
Congratulations on the mod. A doubt, will the team evolve every season or is the career mode static?

Thank you! Unfortunately, I don't think AI teams evolve in career mode, it's only the human controlled cars which is a stupid decision by Codemasters.
Hi Niko.

Love your work. Really enjoying this database addition.

I have one unrelated question. What database fields do I need to edit to generate a similar database, but with the cars being equal? I only want the driver's abilities to define the differences.

Thank you.

Main changes necesary for this are not in database, but in 'cars' folder. You have to copy all the files inside "cars->me2->balanced" folder (Mercedes AI car performance or whatever team you want) and paste them in "cars->xx2->balanced" for all the other teams, and then rename the files to the original names (if you don't rename the files game will crash). That will make every AI car the same performance.

Then, in database:

In "f1_team" you must have every team being tier 1 and virtual performance 1 (or whatever you wish, but all the teams need to have the same value).
In "f1_drivers" you need to adjust the "fake_qualifying_hability" or something like that to the values you like.
In "ai_drivers" you have to change the values for all the drivers as you wish, but if you want in to be Equal cars, then I recommend a range of "0.60 to 1" or even "0.70 to 1" so that there is not that much different between best and worst drivers.

That should work, also I will do an equal cars add to this database soon because many people have shown interest! :D
Actually it's better, but I miss the race participant. I just finished Austrian GP with only 6 driver take the chequered flag, 2 times safety car deployed, 25% only race GP mode

To fix that issue you can 'downgrade' the realistic damage mod. I have added the link to the main post. I recommend x3 Player & AI setting because any more than that is too much for the AI to handle properly. With x3 setting you will have some AI crashes that causes DNFs, but also some AI crashes that only cause damage (which implies early or extra pit-stop for the AI).
Probably pretty accurate but it means the slightest mistake and you get swamped. Bottas also lower on the grid that usual in a Merc.

1. Yes, I agree is easy to make mistakes and get swamped which could be good or bad (maybe consider turning difficulty down by 1 in some circuits). However, this problem carries from SkyFall mod as I don't touch the human car performances other than re-assign them to the correct cars.
2. Bottas is currently 2nd best driver after Lewis Hamilton and very similar to Max. If he is lower than 3rd then he probably had issues in the race or qualy than you didn't catch (damage, mistake, penalty).

Consider taking some screenshots and post them in the forum if you have further issues! Thanks for the review! :)
Very good thanks!
Do you have a database that lets all cars stay at the same speed?
like, they can all do a quick lap, fight for title poles.
latifi replaces ocon . how to fix ?
Great job, thank you!
