This is a re-issue of an existing mod by Comiell. It is still an active mod, but the download is in our old download section. It is not clear whether the old download section will return after the website update, hence the re-upload.

Thanks to @Melphiz for highlighting the problem. :)

F1 2012 - Realistic Damage v3.0 by Cromiell for Players & AI


I'd like to present 3rd version of my Damage Modification for F1 2012. Now it is possible to tweak damage only for player, only for AI or for both player & AI - by your choose.
The following mod is fully compatible with all of the patches!

Change Log UPDATE to v3.0:

  • Omitted tag "impact_ai_player_modifier" has been fixed
  • Omitted values for "impact_ai_player_modifier" for Player, AI, Player & AI have been added
  • Increased the collision sensitivity for immovable objects for every level what should result in more realistic damage for any contacts with walls and barriers or any other circuit objects
  • Changed "impact_player_player_modifier" to 0.5 (may prevent crashing the game when trying to join Multiplayer). However, please note that "Realistic Damage" mod WILL NOT work in Multiplayer. Nor, will any other damage modding. You will be kicked immediately after joining.


It will increase yours and/or AI damage level based on percentage of basic settings. Please note that both
players and AI damage will be set to the same value.



1. Unpack the archive.
2. Choose whose damage settings should be increased:
  • Player only,
  • AI only,
  • both Player and AI.
3. Choose your desired damage increase level:
  • 1x (Very Small),
  • 2x (Small),
  • 3x (Medium),
  • 4x (High),
  • 5x (Very Realistic),
  • 6x (Hardcore).
NOTE: I recommend setting choosing between x4 and x5 damage. x5 may be a bit too tricky for the rear of your car and I find it bit overpowered in that case. 4x is fully fine in my opinion.

4. Copy your chosen loose_parts_settings.xml file to your F1 2012 [PC] game main folder. Click YES to replace.
5. Play the game and enjoy!

Thanks, it's a valuable mod. It's hard to find mod in 2022.
Amazing mod
It does not work for me
I found it 7 years after its publication, but I want to say that it is one of the best mods in the game (and it has been difficult to find some decent mods)
Great mod! Using it now at 3x (Medium). Since on 4x (High) it was too often that I was hit from behind by accident and would have to retire. Just great that you made the scale, so people can choose :-).
Its amazing mod! :D
