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!

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?

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?

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

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 ?

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 :().

Did you (or do you) have any plans to include the ability for users to create their own tracks?

Thanks.

Loved playing it at Eurogamer Expo and the PSN demo, really wanted to see a more 'relaxed' Formula 1 game and this is it! :D

 

One thing I did note why playing though:

 

My question: Why did you not get the actual drivers voices themselves to do the voices for their own in-game characters? ;D Would of been funny to actually hear Vettel and Hamilton's voices taunt each other in-game!

Q: Did you feel this was a game developed for the younger F1 fans for them to play instead of current F1 games or as I way for them to play F1 Race stars then step up and also play your main F1 Games?

 

Would be great to play F1 Race Stars on Vita

Any chance of bringing in content in the form of legendary drivers like Senna or Fangio? or maybe some classic cars like the 6-wheeled Tyrrell racer from the seventies, or maybe the sharknoses Ferrari 156?

Are the graphic artists and 3d Modellers relieved they do not need to model David Coulthard's chin for this game?

F1 Race Stars is a huge change in style from the normal licensed F1 games so how well was the idea initially received amongst the license holders and the stars/teams within the sport?  

Its not necessarily going to appeal to F1's core audience with its graphical style, crazy tracks and cartoon handling so why use licensed F1 rather than start a new cartoon franchise?  And how do you intend to get those gamers playing this?

Were you required to adjust the performance of the teams in line with their real-life counterparts as in the normal licensed title or are the lower level teams on equal performance in F1 Race Stars?
