Codemasters Promises “Full Simulation”
Looks like the guys at Codemasters are becoming aware of the communities’ doubt in their ability to produce a real simulation. Racedriver GRID’s execute producer posted the following statement in Codemasters’ own community forum to calm people down about their still unnamed 2009 Formula One game:
Right, I haven’t read every post in this thread, but I get the jist and just to stop you all from panicking too much… GRID and DiRT are aimed at an arcade audience and they do that very well. F1 has different requirements and will get a completely different treatment from our in-house team, including full on sim options, physics, rules and regs etc. We will also have arcade requirements catered for as well. How this will be split we do not know yet, but split it will be.
Now that sounds somewhat good, I´m just not sure they have the same standards for “full simulations” as the community. The prospect of them including the full regs and regulations is something at least, keep in mind that GRID did not even offer a qualifying mode.
