    Just popped in to have a read before I break up for Christmas tomorrow and have realised I'm probably a bit late to the party on folks worrying about everything to do with the takeover. I can't go into massive (any) amounts of detail, and you might well think I'm just blowing hot air to calm people down, but my honest message is that you have nothing to worry about. I've been in a lot of meetings about the future of DiRT Rally and our team this year, and have never had any indication that me or any of my fellow Directors and Leads will be asked to betray how we want to represent rallying for you. We won't always be able to control everything related to the publishing and business side of things (we're the development team, so whilst we have a voice in discussions ultimately we trust our colleagues who are specialists in those areas) but when it comes to how a car goes down a stage that's firmly in our control. A phrase I've kept being told (in one wording or another) in presentations and meetings with external parties related to the takeover has been 'we can see the quality of the game the team has made, and the passion the studio has for rallying, and we don't want to mess with that'. I'm certainly planning to keep doing what we've been doing and I've got no-one in my ear trying to persuade me otherwise. So with that I'll wish you all a Happy Christmas/Holidays/Etc, take care of yourselves and your loved ones, and here's to 2021.

    Thanks to all the CM team, for giving us the best Rally simulator game of all time. It is a gift in difficult times. They make the world a better place for many. I’ve been helped by their game to overcome my problems and be excited about something. My 71-year-old father is also a lover of your games. Since Toca’s time, each vehicle had a very realistic weight for each category. Happy New Year 2021 to all!!!

    I feel like Bahrain Outer would be a really great layout to have in the game, either alongside the existing Bahrain Short layout or replacing it entirely. Plus, if it's possible, it would be cool if we could add Bahrain Outer to our MyTeam saves when doing short seasons.

    One thing has not been explained by Codemasters. Because F2 2020 drivers are not in career mode and My Team. What is their response on that, will they enter the next rating update? @BarryBL

    Sorry I'm late to the party, but here's the livery for my team SF Arrow Dynamics (Renault). I wanted to use green since that wasn't on the grid already. So I went and tried to combine elements from the Brawn GP and Jaguar liveries and turned it into something new. Hope you guys like it! P.S.: I agree that CM did an amazing job with the fake sponsors. Some of the liveries in this list look so good, they make you forget they're player-made (and I'm not talking about the modded ones obviously). I only wished CM would implement these things: - adjustments of decals to fit certain liveries better (e.g. scaling and moving them around). - inclusion of decals for your engine supplier - ditto for the WeRaceAsOne and EndRacism slogans I feel like these would add even more immersion to the MyTeam experience!

    Hi everyone. Firstly, I have to compliment Codies for their efforts on this year's game. I didn't expect to be able to create my own team in the game just yet and, for a first attempt, the My Team game mode is excellent. However, as with every game, there are always improvements to be made which can take the franchise to the next level. So I've got some suggestions as to what can be implemented into next year's game. The suggestions in bold are those which I think are musts for the developers to target (and should be achievable). My Team: Proper Livery Editor - This is an absolute must. For it to completely feel like My Team, I need to be able to design my own livery. An editor similar to the ones seen in GT Sport and the Forza franchise would be fantastic. We could create our own shapes for the design, place the sponsors exactly where we want them and scale their size, choose our number font and colour(!!) and do so much more! Different Paint Finishes - I think the current colour system is decent and you can get pretty much any colour if you try hard enough. However, we should be able to choose if the paint has a matte, glossy, metallic etc. finish. Some preset liveries have matte finishes already, so why can't we decide the finish ourselves? Different FOM Car Options - It would be great if there were a range of FOM cars to choose from that each look a bit different. They could have different nose designs, rear wings, bargeboards, wheelbases and rakes for example. It would perhaps be a stretch to allow us to choose individual components since the car might then not look quite right. Each car could have different performance characteristics e.g. better aerodynamic performance, less drag, lower chassis weight etc. Improved Calendar Progression - This mainly relates to one thing... driver contracts. It seems a bit silly that we have to save up to afford our teammate's contract before we get our end-of-season budget. If we sign a new teammate, their stats for the previous season show up in the season summary even though they were not driving for My Team - that makes zero sense. It should also be possible to negotiate contracts over a wider timescale than one specific day. If I want to tie down my teammate for next season a bit earlier (or similarly snap up another driver), then I should be able to. Other teams could do this as well and we could get a notification every time a driver is confirmed in a seat. I also think we should be able to do some things in the off-season, such as upgrading facilities and doing some sponsor events. Influence on Teammate Strategy - Since we are the team owner, it would make sense if we could have a large influence on our teammate's pit strategy. There are often races where the one-stop is generally faster, but the team puts my teammate on the two-stop, ruining their race. It's so frustrating! I also feel that there should be some team orders on the MFD, e.g. "Let me past ____", "Double-stack pit stop", "Box ____ this lap". Our teammate can override if they want (at their peril of course)! Hiring Team Members - It is quite easy to manage our funds after a certain point. Being able to hire team members would provide something else to spend our cash on. We could hire a Chief Aerodynamicist, Power-Unit Chief, Chassis Expert and Durability Engineer. The better people you hire, the more paths of development you unlock, the less likely your upgrades are to fail - this would work nicely alongside the facility management we currently have. Possibly, we hire a Chief Strategist which would result in better suggestions of alternate strategies from Jeff and better strategies for your teammate. Career Mode: I haven't actually played the normal driver career mode this year yet, but there are a couple of things that I would still like to see. Semi-Realistic Driver Transfers - Having driver transfers is great, and it is cool to see some crazy moves like Verstappen to Mercedes. While there should still be unpredictable transfers like this, I don't see enough more realistic moves. For me, the drivers in F2 which are associated with certain F1 teams should be more likely to move to those teams when a seat become available. For example, in next year's game, if a Renault seat becomes available then Zhou and Lundgaard should be the drivers most likely to fill it. Likewise if there is a free Red Bull seat, then one of the AlphaTauri drivers or Tsunoda (if he's not already in that car) should be most likely to step up. As a player we are associated with a particular driver academy, why aren't the other F2 drivers? Team Sponsors on Helmet - We finally have sponsors on the helmet in My Team, but they remain bare as ever in normal career mode. What if some positions on the helmet were assigned to the team's logo, as well as their primary and secondary sponsors? For example, if you were driving for Mercedes, you would get the Merc badge, Petronas and Ineos slapped onto your helmet. Alternatively, at Alfa Romeo, you would get their badge, Orlen and Carrera/Singha on your helmet. I appreciate there may be some licensing issues with this, but I don't see why any team/sponsor would object. General: Proper Helmet Editor - Very similar to the livery editor, I need my helmet to look exactly how I want it. Should be able to have different paint finishes too. Classic Tracks DLC - In my opinion, the classic cars we have at the moment are nice, but they don't add that much to the game. If classic tracks were included though, that would be amazing! Obviously we could do time trial and online using these tracks, and potentially we could add them to our career modes(?) If we could get tracks like Mugello, Nurburgring, Portimao, Imola and Istanbul Park as part of a paid DLC on next year's game then I would be obliged to get my wallet out. Again I worry that licensing holds this idea back, but we had classic tracks on F1 2013... Cool-Down Lap - Like the formation lap, this should be optional, but it would be nice to see. Once you finish a race, it all feels abrupt. I want to have a lap where I can let the result sink in. We could have radio messages where we can thank the team or criticise them for any strategic decisions - this could tie into department morale and driver acclaim. I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts on my suggestions and it would be great if you could share your own ideas as well!

    Would LOVE to see some more mixed surface stages. One of my favorite things about Monte, as much as I dreads that place, is how great it feels fighting up/down the mountain and the dramatic change between tarmac, tarmac-ice, and snow-ice as you climb. Start giving me more of that in other locations, like the little bits of pavement in Australia. But why stop at just loose/hard surfaces? I love the idea of expanding it to have dramatically different loose gravel types as you cut across open fields before diving back into twisty wooded roads.

    Yes, I find that this is the case as well. I’m able to extend well beyond the pit window, sometimes as much as 4 or 5 laps, and I often get Jeff coming over the radio wanting to change the strategy by a lap or two. Definitely agree with Y2Kev, you want to be above the line, not below it.

    F1 2021 should just be a huge DLC for F1 2020. Cars will be exactly the same and all they need to do is remove Vietnam and add Saudi Arabia. When the new regs come into play in 22 Take 2 will of had 2 years to rebuild the game and bring the heat with new features and next gen optimisation.

    Again, both a cheap wheel or an expensive has its advantages. With my old dfgt, switching off ffb and only 200 degrees of rotation I could go fast. With my new wheel (ts-pc) I 'feel' more of what is going on and improved my setups. Said that, with a good wheel and good ffb I don't want to go back to my cheap wheel, same as when used to VR I don't want to go back to a screen. Both not for the speed but for the experience.

    Exclude a rally... hmmm... let's not go to Argentina! And yeah, I'm with @YoMrWhite, three days per rally is a bit short for me.

    Happy New Year guys 🙂 I'm not making it to midnight tonight so I'm a bit early but what the hey, you'll read this way before its 2021 in your timezones anyway! This is my first new years night without booze in maybe 12-13 years! I'm very proud of going sober and for losing 16.8 kilos too! 2020 was an awful year for so many, lets hope 2021 is the turning of the tide. Best wishes!
