F1 2018

16 Aug 2018

Posted by GrandPrixYannick in I Wanna talk about other Sims or Games
I've been quite a fan of the Codemasters's F1 series. I've been playing it for what must be over a thousand hours altogether. (my Steam says I played F1 2017 for +360 hours!!)
Career mode has always been a game mode for me that can really make me stick to games if they are good.

Since F1 2016 they have been developing the game significantly.
For F1 2017 I got quite hyped with the progress they have been making and the features that came with it. So much I pre-ordered it.

Now F1 2018 is not far away and once again I am really hyped and is it already in my game library.
The career mode looks even more immersive and complete than it has even been before.
Not only that, from watching the diaries they published, I notice that they push the game slightly further to sim racing, which is what I'm pretty excited about.
Here a few videos to watch:

Diary 1 (Interviews & Contracts):

Diary 2 (Research & Development revamp)

Diary 3 (Game Physics)

So yeah, that said, any of you who are interested and what're your thoughts?

UPDATE: First bunch of reviews have come out, some have lauded it as the best F1 title yet.

Track Download

If you have problems to get this track working download Paul`s complete track folder including Monaco Rocks (see some posts below).
Monacane is also included in "All addon tracks & updates for the GPLRACER 2018 season (2 GB)" (see link below).

Track Updates
-> The easiest way is to use the 55 track conversion complete folder by Greg Liebzeit (gliebzeit) to update the track with the 55 graphics updates (which give an extra 50s immersion feeling). The latest and best graphics updates available for that track are also included. Tip: Make a backup of your track folder in case you want to go back.

Do We Need This For Gpl

15 Aug 2018

Looking at the Project cars game and seeing helmet cam.


Do we need this for GPL. Would it be wanted and more importantly, could it be done.

Okay, maybe for a later mod, like 70-73, when full face helmets came in to the fashion. Or maybe replicate the scarf over the mouth affect, for earlier periods.

Ramp Angles And Clutches.

17 Aug 2018

Hi All,
Although I understand (Or at least grasp the concept) of power and coast ramp angles and clutches I have a question.

If I have for example a 45/50/3 set up on the Eagle it gives me locking %age of 14% for power and 13% for coast.

If I change to 55/60/4 It gives me the same locking %age of 14% and 13%.

Does the car handle any differently? I don't feel that it does but I'm not sure exactly what I'm looking for. :confused:

Thanks in advance.

Brilliant look back, at a computer game history and a console battle, back in the day.


I feel guilty, been a Madden gamer 🤔
