F1 2020 is the latest entry in Codemasters’ annual racing game series, this year’s addition allows players create their very own driver and the usual 10-year campaign.
The game has been out for a few days, and the first batch of mods have already been made available to download.
As it’s still early in the game’s life cycle, this list is set to grow, but here is a list of the top ones on offer right now.
Extreme, Medium and Realistic Damage
The F1 2020 Extreme, Medium and Realistic damage mod alter the damage sensitivity in the game’s Simulation mode, resulting in more frequent crashes while driving F1 cars. Applying the same changes to both players and AI, you should see more accidents when touching another driver’s wheels and wings. The mod comes with three damage settings – Extreme steers clear of realism but can be useful when hunting for that YouTube compilation feel, Medium sees between 2-10 crashes per race, being recommended for 5-lap races. Lastly, Realistic is the setting that mod creator StrongestFish recommends for most races. Find it on RaceDepartment.
FFB Data File
A simple yet necessary mod, given how plenty of players will use controllers and racing wheels when playing F1 2020, the FFB Data file gives you access to a clean Force Feedback file. Grab it from RaceDepartment.
Realistic Performance mod changes the performance of a few cars, resulting in a different overall game balance. Thus, Honda engines are faster, similar to those in Mercedes cars, while Ferrari engines are now the slowest. If you’re more of a Racing Point, Williams or Haas fan, the mod makes them faster when taking turns.
Customizable Dash for F1 Teams
The Customizable Dash for F1 Teams mod adds a dashboard to F1 2020 that provides all manner of useful information, resembling those used in the spot in real life. The mod features multiple screens, including ones for the race start and overtaking other drivers, and can be downloaded from RaceDepartment.
MorganGodFreman’s F1 2020 Thrustmaster TMX mod increases Force Feedback when using the steering wheel, making it more noticeable when your tire touches gravel or grass. The Throttle and break Linearity were also increased to be used without assists and make for better low throttle traction which reduces the likelihood of spins. You’ll find detailed values and the mod itself on Steam Workshop.
