    DiRTy Gossip Thread

    So, when are we getting the Audi S1, and possibly also a Volvo 240?

    Pikes Peak body kits always had and have to have bigger wings because as you climb the mountain the air gets thinner which makes it difficult to maintain aerodynamics.

    New WRC 8 Gameplay Video and Analysis

    Kylotonn had to step up their game in terms of handling, physics and FFB. I remember when WRC6 was free to download on Xbox, I deinstalled it after a few minutes. As I said, no doubt people are excited about this game to be released and no doubt it'll be fun. If they succeed in creating more credible (surface) physics, we as customers can only benefit from it, but the videos are there to watch and re-watch, they're still miles away from DR2.0 imo.

    DiRT Rally 2.0: Share your Screenshots!

    What a comfortable ride this was ^^ The interior is a 10/10 in my view, and look at that steering wheel! I must say, though, the MS21, eerrr DS21 is the only car where you look at a picture and can actually see the understeer

    New WRC 8 Gameplay Video and Analysis

    Maybe 'insane' is a bit exaggerated and I must say I haven't had a closer look at all but from the footage I've seen so far I think it looks really nice.

    New WRC 8 Gameplay Video and Analysis

    I wouldn't count too much on any 'word on the street' to be fair, but graphics look insane, the game looks amazing. Plus, triple screens always looks more immersive. Pretty sure the game is an improvement to the previous iteration, but watching the footage to me it's clear that it's no competition in terms of handling and physics. I can't see much chassis movement and weight transfer. It'll be fun, no doubt, but it's pretty hard to beat DR2.0 handling in my view.

    DiRT Rally 2.0: Share your Screenshots!

    I think it has nothing to do with console vs. PC graphics/pics quality. Honestly, I've seen so many awesome screenshots, I'd just be staring at all those pictures for hours and still have no idea which one to pick next. I can only speak for myself, generally you tend to either select a different stage or restart immediately but this whole screenshot thing has (re)drawn my attention to an absolutely awesome aspect of the game: The replays. I really enjoy watching them. They show how beautiful this game is and how real it can look. PJ said the team loves this thread, I can understand that.

    Let's talk hardcore damage

    I'm all for a more hardcore damage model too, but make it optional for league racing. I can understand the 'forgiving' approach as the hardcore racers are a minority but I think downshifting like crazy to get better braking distance should be penalized by damaging the engine and eventually either losing HP or completely send it to the shadow realm in both dailies and TT. The thing with radiators is though, modern rally cars are built in a way to avoid rally ending damage, radiators and intercoolers wouldn't be the first thing to damage if you hit something, so I think RBR approach should only apply to historic rally cars. Would be ace if we could get that differentiation. Currently we can get terminal damage and punctures but it's not enough in my view. Something in between the RBR model and what we have would be really nice.

    DS 21 engine sound too loud?

    I've driven the DS21 quite a bit (for research reasons) and I actually think the Fulvia is louder unless one of the recent updates did something to the DS21 audio.

    I'm bored on dirt rally 2.0

    I'm not sure what game you're playing. I'm getting power oversteer even on soft tyres, the claim that cars are 'stick on floor' is plain wrong.

    Let's be honest, whoever came up with FWD, it was a terrible idea!
  12. Alright, I think I got it now thanks for clarifying 👍
