    Remove Always Online for the Career!

    So, my WRX Championchip has just been reset. Why does it need to reset, when it just could use the last RaceNet save data (if it doesn't want to use local because of cheating or else)?

    Setting Up Cars Really Stinks

    Agreed! Even in reality teams can test their cars on roads or circuits. We need simple test area.

    Vrally looks very gamey - visually. And again, the environment often looks more like straight out of a fantasy game.

    Unless they fix their stuttering mess, there is nothing to miss...

    Well, for any serious sim or even simcade title, a good sureface resolution is essential. Does anyone remember the last Test Drive titles? They had great environment, but the road surface was crazy low poly and driving on mountain roads was really no fun. You could literally feel (and see) each poly edge.

    Can someone tell them that cameras attached to a car (inside or outside) do no move independently from the car? These gopro cam views look totally weird.

    Did they cut at 0:56 to not show him crashing into the wall?

    Attend... ( he's still saying it) The jump looks a bit strange, like the car gets a boost while already in air. https://youtu.be/n9NM-wMIcP8

    Again, looks like input lag. And is seems like some stages are either even more bumpy than sweden in D4 or the cars have no working suspension. Cars wobbling over the bumps looks just strange. And they have copied codemaster old color palette. Some lighting effects do look nice. But the environment never looks realistic. It always looks a bit like visualizing some fairytale book. Oh, and that massive blue/purple fringing in the trees in Finland is just insane.

    Of course it's the same stage. It's a recreation of the real one. The stage streets are probably accurate, but their environmental content (especially trees) often do not represent reality.

    Yeah, WRC titles have a reputation for the environment often looking like a fantasy world. With regards to the suspension not being able to handle the bumps, it was my thought too. In reality, these cars (the chassis) almost float above the surface very smooth and steady, while the suspension is doing its work. BTW, here is another crazy WRC 7 video. This guy can not even drive a few meters in straight line. He tries really hard. It's either very bad input lag or very bad steering setup. It looks undrivable. https://youtu.be/MbI8io323EM

    Ok, that makes more sense. But anyway, I would still like to see an option to enforce only generated stages for multiplayer events without being able to load stages into the event.

    What? So you are back at what we had in all the rally games before. Known stages for everyone, all the time? I am sorry, but that is completely against what the generator is all about. Sure, anyone can use the generator to get some nice preferred stages and go hotlapping. But for an online league, it is vital to go with unknown generated stages. Yes, we all know the tiles somehow, but there is still quite a difference between completely knowing a stage and just knowing the sections but without knowing the sequence. And in addition to that, there are still some differences in some tiles. For instance, the sharp hairpin in australia which flows into a T-intersection. Usually it follows the bend, but sometimes the stage continuous into the opposite direction which would be otherwise blocked with barricades. So you still have to listen and can't just hotlap every new generated stage.

    Sorry, but that doesn't cut it. I don't want to rely on anyones supposedly fairness. It's not only the host who might have learned the stages. He also could have shared these stages with specific members. What's the point of having the ability to generate stages on the fly in multiplayer, when you still use stages that could be known for days or weeks. There needs to be an option that forces generated stages only, same as enforcing no-assists etc.

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    I just hope there is also a way to ensure freshly generated stages only, so that all league members can be sure to drive each stage for the first time. I wondered why there is no way to force only new generated stages for multiplayer. What is the point if the host can load stages that he knows back and forth?

    They could also do some minor but essential variations of some turns. For instance, the very long bending 2 in Wales open fields, it always has the same bumps and mini crests at the same spots and also rough edges on the inside so that you can't cut it. It would be relatively easy to do some variations of this turn so that sometimes its quite flat and sometimes you can cut it. This tile system also needs better and more specific pace notes. Some pace notes are completely off. And we really need plus and minus indications according to each turn if necessary.

    Never mind, it was just an error in the video and I managed to grab the real screen with correct car size. Sometimes these videos can get really messed up on youtube. ;)

    What the... This screen looks like an RC-car on a farm track. Or according to the car, this Wales country road has the width of almost four lanes. Anyway, nice video. If only the sounds would be ingame and the cams would be replay...

    Where do you guys watch WRC besides WRCplus? WRC plus does not have any live stream today. But I guess they are driving today?

    How come that a small company like Kylotonn (never heard of them before WRC games) can afford so much licensing, but Codies (my guess, much bigger company) with way more tradition, history and standing and other racing IPs - can not?

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    Internet (pretty much all the setup guides) says otherwise. Toe-out is supposed to give better turn-in response.

    Does the retail version also need steam? Maybe there are different activation time-slots for retail steam and digital steam?

    In this video you can see him adding all six sponsors to the car. But only three of them seem to appear. The process starts at 11:00. Only the first three sponsors appear on the car. And the rear and front is totally empty (only the bonnet shows the sponsors from the side). There is nothing in the usual places like under the headlights or taillights. Is this a bug? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4PrlwCp6q6c

    ISR just released a video with one race on all 5 Rallycross tracks. He is driving in cockpit view and if you watch carefully, you can see that the starting lights on the track go to green just a tad earlier. Or the HUD lights just lag. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T2_zF0P7678

    With regards to liveries and team colors, when we buy new cars, is there always only one default livery or can we choose from a few? And if we use team colors, can we have different colors for different cars?
