what view do you use whilst racing?

Post by Guest on Wed Jun 19, 2013 2:50 pm

Hey everyone,

during the race last night something popped into my head "I wonder what views these guys are using?". 
I really hope its not the T-cam as imo it makes you so much quicker its beyond stupid, doesn't feel natural or realistic at all. A prime example of this was the way everyone was flying through the final chicane at the end of the lap, a place I appeared to be losing at lot of time.

I use the cockpit view to make it as realistic as possible and I believe its more fun that way and have more feel of the car. It also takes more skill imo to master, as you feel the car slide more and have less visibility. I mean, you think to yourselves what do the F1 drivers really see?

I'd very much appreciate it if some of you would take the time to specify which view you use.

Thanks for reading,
Ferrari_Mania

T Cam for online racers, 

cockpit for career mode.

Thanks for the reply guys Smile 

Do you think I should switch to the T-cam then to help to keep up more? Don't want to do that, but if it helps to increase the pace then it may be I have to make that change :/

Have a play around with different camera angles, see which one suits you the best.

Yeah,  I think I'm going to do that. It would go against my principles not using the cockpit view but I'm just going to have to run a few experiments and try to reach a conclusion

I use cockpit cam myself. I think inevitably one loses a bit of ultimate laptime compared to some cameras simply cos your brain has to compute more depth perception low down with less peripheral vision. But it's always the view for me - close racing has a real buzz to it, and I find being able to see and use my mirrors properly very helpful Very Happy 

But stick with what you enjoy and can compete safely with, it's why you enjoy your online racing after all. There will likely be other reasons you might feel a bit behind - after long enough it won't be the camera Wink    Hang in there!

Hello all,

I use the Tv pod camera just because it's the one on TV, as for me it's the most natural one to select and use. I don't think one camera view is faster that another but just use whats more comfortable to use for you mate.

I don't really like the T cam, just don't see the point why would you add another camera same to the Tv pod but slightly to the left.

It should be said that cockpit probably isnt the beat in terms of seeing where exactly your competitors are. Neither is T, but no one would use chase

I use the cockpit cam, a bit slower, about 0.4 a lap, but so much fun Smile

I'm going to stick with the cockpit view. I've always used it and not going to change now. As the saying goes, 'practice makes perfect'. 

Crank, you've hit the nail on the head! that's the reason I like the view so much, gets the adrenaline going.

Liam, you say it costs you 0.4 of a second a lap? How much quicker could you be then? lol
