I am surprised they are asking top price at launch this year, I expect a big and quick price drop.

That says a lot to the monstrosity that was the Vietnam circuit.
Buy it from cdkeys and its basically half the price anyway.

Must be hard for codemasters to dump some money into laser-scanning all the tracks...this is probably the first time in 10 years they have actually updated their recycled handdrawn tracks.
Not being funny but the time, money, travel involved in laser scanning 20 circuits, some of which arent there all year round isnt possible in the time frame of development that they have. However the tracks are done for non laser scanned circuits they look good. People get too used to having laser scanned things then act like they're entitled to them.

hello guys, another video check out of Barcelona with Carlos Sainz has just come out.
I noticed that the wheel is the same as that of the video of a week ago with Verstappen in Zandvoort.
I hope it is really still work in progress otherwise I will have to cancel the order already made.
never ever preorder anyways, especially not if its a Codemasters game

Another year and a "new game". Codemasters should create one F1 game and add new features/updates to engine every year and add a new seasons as DLC. ...But probably they can't do it, because of the offical licence, which requires a "new game" every year.

Hmm that view inside the cockpit seems a lot lower than usual, so much can be added/achieved with F1 but they always seem to do the minimum every year.

Still at least you can create your own car on the Grid this year.

No one:
Codemasters: »Hey, check out Barcelona, one of the most boring tracks in the world!«
I have to disagree. I think the track gets a bad reputation as "boring" because the F1 races there have been very boring...but I think that has more to do with the current nature of F1 cars than the track itself.

From a hotlapping perspective, I think the track is a lot of fun and a big challenge. I realize I'm risking trashing my (virtual) reputation for all eternity with what I'm about to say, but here goes anyways...from a pure driving experience, I don't think there is a big difference between this track and Spa. Note I didn't say "Spain is just as good as Spa!" No way, Spa is iconic and one of my all time favorite tracks...I just think don't think Barcelona deserves the "boring" label (at least not without qualifiers).

Don't Rfactor 2 have like 3 laser scanned tracks?

poor tbh, fair enough its hard to scan 20, but not even 1 is a bit pathetic.

It's mostly boring because they test at this circuit during winter. It's a good track just have all the data they need for it unless it rains. Hence why its boring for most people, however saying that i do not like watching it and until recently didn't really like racing on it as i was hot garbage.

But its not. If they announce they are laser scanning only a handful of tracks ingame then you end up with people moaning because they all arent. They can never win.

Barcelona was much better without the tight chicane at the end. Nevertheless, compared to many other tracks in the F1 schedule it's a very dull track, only Sochi and Paul Ricard are worse imo.

Well then people should make do with the fact that none of them are laser scanned. I dont see the issue with the tracks as they are. Unless you drive round the real things hundreds of times and know exactly how the track feels to drive in real life then really dont see why it would bother you.

Ha, I like Paul Ricard too! That probably gives you some context on how warped my track opinions are! :D

Sochi sucks though. No argument there.
