Re: F1 Race Stars Q&A with Codemasters

 

 

Hello Codemasters, How's life on the racetrack? 

 

  • What was your favourite part of the entire development process? when did you have the most fun?
  • How and when did you come up with the visual style of all the race drivers? (which is awesome btw)
  • You're obviosly all big fans of racing in general, that's one of the things codemasters in known for-making excellent racing games, What i want to know is who in the CM office is the best and worst drivers and what cars do you all own?

Keep up the good work!

Re: F1 Race Stars Q&A with Codemasters

Looking forward to trying the demo out latest today.

My questions are:

1. Will there be a day one patch? (I ask because there seems to be a lot of this recently, and for those who don't have access to internet, could be left with a broken game.)

2. When playing local multiplayer, is it possible for player 2/3/4 to use there own account on the PS3 and have there online stats updated...or would it only update the player that is logged into the PSN. (I'm not actually sure if this is possible on any game to be honest, but though I'd ask anyway).

3. When deciding to make this game, did you get your ideas from Mario Kart or another similar game?

Re: F1 Race Stars Q&A with Codemasters

Was there any F1 driver who wasn't happy with their image as a cartoon character, forcing you to make changes? If so who and what did you need to change?

Re: F1 Race Stars Q&A with Codemasters

The kart racing genre is quite a crowded one at the moment, what makes yours stand out from the crowd?

Re: F1 Race Stars Q&A with Codemasters

1: Do you think race stars could be a good way to get more younger people interested in the sport itself?
2: Do you have any plans for DLC add on packs for classic cars & drivers as well as circuits?
3: Is there a safety car?:BigGrin:

4: Do you think you could teach hermann tilke a thing or two now you've got your teeth into a bit of track design?

Here are a few Questions:

 

1) Whats the reason for making a cartoony F1 game ?

2) Which track is your favourite ?

3) Will there be a powerup for Romain Grosjean where he can take out drivers in the 1st corner ?

Re: F1 Race Stars Q&A with Codemasters

After playing the demo, I have one small criticism which immediately stood out.

Go-karts are centred round a short & tight track, whereas F1 long and fast. The German level seemed too long and boring for my liking for a go-kart game, with me either being way out in front on my own feeling bored, or chasing someone else out in front on their own.

Q. Are all the other tracks like this, if so is there any way to combat this ie shorten the tracks or make the karts a little faster? (it really did put me off the game somewhat :smileysad:).
