    I am more interested in the singleplayer side, but nothing about that in these updates makes me upset. Could they fix the weird car physics when entering/leaving pits? Or the super aggressive A.I ? :D

    +1 on both. So guess it's a +2. :D
    That "jerky" behavior when entering/leaving pits is almost like their trademark.
    Sadly... it kills immersion. Just wish that they too realise that.
    I know it ain't like priority but c'mon... it's been like ...how much ? 8, 9 years already ?
    More aggressive AI than before is nice adition but sometimes I just wish get out of the car and slap them in their face. Like Piquet in Hockenheim. :D
    Another thing that (still) bothers me is, year after year, inability to set weather as you want. I mean, really... dry or wet ?!? And if you really want some drying track then just play like 122 long races, set weather to "dynamic" and just do your best rain dance impression.
    For god sake even Milestone do it, and do it pretty well, I actually enjoy the most in "wet track" weather option. Not to mention how well everyone's first choice, highly acclaimed, all time favorite:) Project Cars 2 has done it.
    Just learn from the best, Codemasters ! :rolleyes:

    Bought it, tried it, got my refund.

    Afraid this is not the game or series for me. Last one I bought was F1 '13 and thought this would attract me back but with so many other titles battling for my time just did not get the wow factor needed.

    Actually had the most fun in Nigel's Williams.

    I _should_ be focusing on my career mode (which I barely have the time for as it is), but I end up blowing my time monkeying around in all the classic cars!

    Hi Codemaster,

    Many thx for solving some issues, but i have a request. Please can you fix force cockpit view, so drivers force to drive in cockpit view, this would be awesome and a must for pro drivers. Also the ranked system fix would be great so we can drive with peope with same ranking, so the crashverstappens drivers can drive with them own idiots friends on the net.

    I have to politely push back on the "force cockpit view". At the risk of sounding like one of those annoying VR snobs, I am coming up on my 1 yr VR anniversary and have a good number of laps under my belt in VR at this point. Why do I bring VR into the conversation? Well, when I go back to a sim without VR support, I find TV pod to be the most realistic in terms of replicating the sensation of speed, situational awareness, field of vision, and depth that I get from driving in VR.

    When I go to a non-VR sim and try cockpit view in an open wheel car, I can't hardly stand it - I feel like I'm trying to drive sitting in a hole. If you've ever sat in an open wheeler, you'll know that isn't the sensation/impression you get in real life. The first time I drove an open wheeler in VR, it was like "whoah...I can see exactly where I'm placing my tires!" Which was a sensation I had never had pre VR, even with triple monitors.

    In conclusion, don't take away my TV pod view, please. Some of us VR snobs need it to be able to drive open wheelers in non-VR sims! :D

    What can be expected, when they still didn't add mouse support to a PC title... after 8, 9 years

    Im not to good at english so maybe i didn't understand you at all, but you can make custom weather , no need to put the dynamic weather, is not to good custom system but better than dynamic.

    Ok, then you maybe can explain to me why I don't have that option in my game !? :notworthy:

    Clicking on it, I can only change that weather, not add another.
    Trying to move with arrows wheel pad left/right doesn't do any good too. :notworthy:
    Btw, I Googled "Carrera" it means "Career", right ?
    Not sure about that but I really want to have drying track in ordinary quick race mode !
    Is that possible ?

    Carrera means race and career, the photo is in a quick race.
    I do not use it but when I have looked to see how it works it seems that it depends on the length of the race.
    3 or 5 laps - 1 space.
    25% race - 2 spaces.
    50% race - 3 spaces.
    100% race - 4 spaces.

    1 space 1 weather.

    Oh ok now I get it. I have to say, with a shame shadow over my face:D that I've always used really short quick races (3-5 laps) so I have never actually saw that you can set different weather systems manually.
    And in career you can't change it (right?) and I use shortest races there too (25%).
    Thank you Hoeek. ;)
    Shame they limit us with this, unlike guys in Project Cars where you can set as many weather changes as you want, regardless of length of the race ! That's the way to go imho, why not using that beautiful drying track eye candies when it's already there ?!? =P
