  1. Having been playing the Flat Out pack non stop since I got it I’d like to make another suggestion for this thread: More Scenario game modes. The Colin McRae game mode is actually way better than I was expecting - it gives you the opportunity to have a taste of someone’s career highlights when you don’t have the attention span to do an epic 12-stage, 12-round rally championship. Maybe, in addition to a return of the Colin McRae mode, we could have a Richard Burns mode if it were released in time for the 30th anniversary of his British Rally Championship win? (In time for the 20th anniversary of his World title is definitely out of the question). Maybe also some scenarios based around something else other than a driver - Group B and/or Group A scenarios? All of these of course would need to go with a history lesson and some appropriate in-period video clips!

    Colin McRae: FLAT OUT Pack – Available Now

    Right understood, but what did that have to do with either Scotland (as per my original quoted post) or NZ (as per NATOaddiff’s post)? Remember when DR2.0 was launched last year there was no WRC-NZ connection

    You’ve completely lost me. What does WRC have to do with Scotland? And what ‘new NZ stages’ are you on about?

    It needs to be at least..... twice as big as this

    My point is there is a comically low amount of snow at this year’s Rally Sweden. It was a joke. 😑

    DiRTy Gossip

    I just wanted to post about a very glaring error in DiRT Rally 2.0, which has been there since DR1 actually. As evidenced by the attached pictures Rally Sweden is run on gravel, without any snow in sight. The devs must have gone to Värmland at the wrong time of year or something, lol they must be kicking themselves for this ****-up 😂 Sort it out Codemasters! #GameIsBroken #Unplayable #SnowNoBuy Pictures credit: https://www.ewrc.cz/foto/60140-rally-sweden-2020/515/

    Well, considering there is no real rally version of the M2 I’d be very surprised if anyone had ‘Seen it for real’ 😉 If we’re getting more dream cars in the next DiRT can we get a modern day interpretation of Group A - but with cars like Mk7 Golf R, Hyundai i30N, Mk3 Focus RS, Mk3 Audi S3, Mk2 Peugeot 308 GTI, all with 4WD (so not modern day Group A really) and a 2.0l turbo 😜
  9. While that would result in a much better game in the WRC series I reckon that would severely limit what Codemasters can dish out to us each time. They’d have to make a new game each year - or presumably have to justify if they wanted to take a year’s break - and they probably wouldn’t be able to include all the extra cars and locations which gives DR quite a lot of USP. I also think the competition between DR and WRC is healthy - they’ll both be trying their hardest to make the best rally sim so my hope is one day I will buy a WRC game and keep it for more than two days 😅
  10. Thanks for providing an answer, usually on this subject critics of the DLC situation just repeat their want for free DLC. I think the biggest difference between GT and DR is that GT is more well-known these days than DR so it has a bigger fanbase and so profit is probably way more predictable for Polyphony than for DR. Rally games (and rallying in general) have fallen into quite a niche since the days of Colin McRae Rally and Colin McRae Rally 2.0. Whereas GT can bank on a lot of people buying whatever their next game is because GT is the driving game for the Playstation and has been since 1997. Codemasters dipped their toe in the water to a degree with DiRT Rally and we weren’t even sure we’d get a DiRT Rally 2.0 for a while so I think it’s still somewhat of a business risk for them. I get your objection to it but I think comparing it to the most successful racing game of all time doesn’t add up. Also the work that goes into making real-life rally stages must be incredibly more time intensive than a racing circuit, and we don’t hear people complaining about GT and Forza etc re-using the same old boring F1 circuits like Silverstone 😴 or Circuit de Catalunya 😴 yet the work that went into us getting to drive Ouninpohja, Sweet Lamb and (hopefully) Drummond Hill is deemed ‘not enough’.

    Haven’t we already got this livery pretty much? For the Escort Cosworth I’d be more than happy with Malcolm Wilson’s Michelin Pilot Sport livery!

    @PJTierney sneakily put something extra in white text below it 😉

    Haha that’s quite a leap! Weren’t we talking about liveries? 😂
  14. With respect, to describe it as half-finished is just your opinion. It is entirely the prerogative of the developer of any game to decide what content is available at launch and what shall become available later as DLC. If you know how to make a game of DR2.0’s content and quality with everything from DLC available at launch, for one price and to turn a profit on it then by all means share it with us all and maybe Codemasters could learn something from you. More detail, really? The level of detail in the stages is pretty good for a rally game. Out of curiosity could expand on what detail you’d like to see more of?
