Going by the commentry in F1 races, along with"speed up" and "slow down" they also issues things like "save your brakes" "watch your fuel" and "your tires are bettEr push on the corners". So i was expecting more commands to issue? Then theres the in-race adjustments they send via computer to limit/increase engine power and so on: wheres all that?
Dont get me wrong, i kinda enjoy it, and seems an easy way to make cash, but i thought theyd be more.
I do find it annoying its so poorly explained: what does the driver class mean compared to bspec level? The arrows next to their names? And how do you make their stats increase? My class 9 driver isnt improving at all now...
lol, quick change of opinion there from post to edit
Not having a dig at you when i say this, but tbh its these sort of comments which kinda me off, because theres plenty of people slating the B-Spec as being boring and pointless and shouldnt be in the game (along with 3D, NASCAR, standard cars... basically anything they dont want) and yet give it a try and its actually quite fun. It might not be better than A-Spec, and it might not be to everyones liking, but its not like you have to play it to be able to unlock aspects of the game, and theres plenty of people who will appreciate it. Im not fussed about drifting, i have no intention of doing it unless the game requires it, but im not pulling hairs out and saying what PD should/shouldnt spend time on, I just accept it was implemented for people who'd appreciate it and move on.
Anyway, glad to hear someone else see worth in it being in the game, i think more people would if they'd give it a chance before judging it, and even if its not to their taste just move on, its not fundamentally wrong which spoils something which could be great, its just not to your/their interest.
I've always enjoyed playing past games in a similar sort of unimplemented b-spec fashion. F1GP was the first, picking a mid-pack team (Usually Team Lotus with Herbert & Hakkenen iirc, 1990 or '91 season) and using the tv camera and on-board to watch them drive round and have zero control over them, just spectating More recently managing a sim team in LFS (pc sim) win the most prestigious series in that sim community, an endurance league doing 1x 24h, 1x 12h and 4x 6h races online, thats more fun cos you get to boss real people around i've sat and watched those 24h races (start to finish) on little more than an overhead map with GPS type car location markers and sometimes a web broadcast of the action. I love it, but its not to everyones taste.
