    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    I strongly doubt the chase cam users (all of whom should be most ashamed of themselves) would be using the hardcore damage model. I'm encouraged that the option exists, and I hope it takes no prisoners. P.s I'm joking about chase cammers being ashamed of themselves. Your game, do what you like.

    Let us know. I may pop along. I haven't spectated the Cambrian before so I was after some insider knowledge.

    Maybe he means visually? There might not be a strong visual difference between 5th and 15th but the times may be different?

    Any other information gleaned? Nothing that hasn't been mentioned. Only thing they say is that track degradation almost makes no difference when you play it but it has influence on the player's time. Well then isn't that a difference? It makes a difference if the players time is differed...

    No, @urgaffel was brewed within the fiery depths of hell. Born only to torment community members.

    Not wrc related but is anyone visiting the Cambrian rally next month?

    I think we should be getting a weighty tome of a roadbook this week, I hope.

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    There's a clip in the preview video of an Australian stage at sun set (or sunrise) with the telegraph poles running alongside the stage which looks particularly good. Also, probably a mistake but the guy previewing says "50 rally cars across 6 locations". Its either a very simple mistake, or we are getting more rally cars than we thought. Gossip worthy at a base level at least.

    Yea it's a nice touch, they could do with adding more ambient lighting on surfaces caused by the flares imo but I like it.

    Nice find. Very interested with the repair system. The text stated that you can quick fix an item initially but that will put extra stress on that component, and may wear needing to be properly repaired or replaced soon after. Also says that some components cannot be replaced during an event. That's a nice touch, and finally a clip showing a single impact causing terminal damage to a vehicle. All very encouraging.

    @christinaMc has stated that we will find out what is contained in season 1 before the game launches. I would expect that to be within 2 weeks of release, maybe a bit earlier.

    I think it's only because there aren't any restarts permitted for Sunday in the Monte. But yea, they should show more R5

    Last stage is gonna be unreal. Apparently Ogier has a very small issue, and Neuville has the bit between his teeth. Gonna be a hell of a power stage.

    Not different enough? Sorry but compared to the tarmac event(s) we have and had in D2.0 & D4 and DR. It's a huge difference tbh. Its another relatively smooth flowing tarmac rally. I like It but I'd have Germany back over ypres personally. Irelandoffers something utterly unique imo.

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    I like ypres, I just don't think it's different enough. Ireland is a completely new looking and feeling rally location that I don't think can be matched.

    Depends on your definition of 'best'. It is by far the most exciting line up in the wrc for many years however, they sure have the potential to rack up retirements.

    At the risk of being pedantic, there aren't really any British tarmac rallies (Britain being the island of England/Wales/Scotland). There's Epynt in Wales and the Jim Clark Rally used to run in the Scottish Borders but hasn't for the last few years since an accident. The classic tarmac in the UK is Northern Ireland, which is similar in characteristic to the Republic of Ireland. Britain itself isn't known for tarmac rounds as the law has always prevented road closures for motorsport events (until a couple of years ago). That was a tad pedantic.But true also. I think northern island holds the key to our tarmac woes though. Isle of man would be nice (not in Britain or uk, I know) but would be inferior to the narrow quick, technical muddy, scrappy, hedge lined roads of ireland/Northern Ireland I forgot that the RAC used to have a bunch of stages around country houses on weekends (what the CMR UK stages were based on), but the less said about those the better IMO... Yea big manor parks like Weston park round my way etc.

    The Citroen tends to have a wobble on gravel. Despite some super times set occasionally. Toyota's clearly have the pace this year though. Do they have the consistency though?

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    Monte and Germany ! What we've seen of Australia kinda reminds me Wales : dark forests, bumpy roads and dangerous road sides... On the other hand, New England seems to be the easiest location to me : relatively slow and tolerant road sides. Spain looks sadly monotonous and boring, Argentina is slow and technical, and NZ looks also interesting with a lot of curves and not so clean surfaces. So we miss some fun asphalt, dry gravel (Greece or Cymrus, or Italy, or Mexico...), and some snow. If were just talking bringing back DR1 locations, imo: Poland replaces Finland. Spain replaces Germany. Argentina replaces Greece. Nothing replaces Monte or Sweden and I'd prefer Monte (doubles as fun asphalt and snow). To me Wales isn't matched in DR2.0. Australia has some similarities but theres no grey gravel on offer which is the key environmental factor missing in DR2.0 for me, other than snow. And it's just a more iconic rally imo. Will be interesting to see if they just bring us new locations. Would love Manx. Spain doesn't replace Germany. Different types of tarmac. Spain is smooth, well maintained roads. Germany is concrete and rough asphalt through a military base and surrounding forests. Different feel in terms of flow too. I guess if you're an asphalt fan then it might not. It's all about gravel for me personally - so it's a direct replacement. Two posts before that, you said you'd want to see the Manx - I'm not having a go, I'm just curious as to what it is about that one tarmac event which overcomes your "all about gravel". philosophy? I grew up when the Manx was on the wain so to me North Wales, Kielder and Northern Ireland are the UK's iconic rally locations. Manx would be a completely fresh, iconic event in a stunning environment, so it's different to porting past DR stages which is what we were talking about. I'd prioritise porting existing DR gravel stages over Germany. Ulster rally makes the Manx look like a trip to the shops. Fact is.. if it's tarmac you want, it has to be the Ulster. And since it's been shown in two codemasters videos, albeit as examples for other things, I believe it's a super hint. It just makes sense. Are you sure those videos are from Ulster/Circuit of Ireland? I think it's hard to pick any specific one, but there are some amazing tarmac events out there and it would be nice to see one or two realised eventually. There are plenty of great Irish/Northern Irish (Donegal, Ulster, Killarney, Cork), Belgian (Ypres, Condroz, Wallonie), Czech (Zlin), French (Var, Mont Blanc), Italian (San Remo), Swiss (Valais), Polish (Rzeszow) etc tarmac events to draw inspiration from and probably plenty of others I don't know about. Belgium would be my choice but any would be great. I'm almost convinced the first video was the Ulster, I haven't got any exact junction matches but some very similar on the YouTube. But to be honest, any Irish tarmac event would suffice.

    Simple thing is, ogier knows when not to cut. Other drivers seem to have trouble with that bit.

    Yea I think ogier probably has it, Neuville looks a little more erratic. Battle for third will be interesting today and tomorrow though.
