    Career, rewards and repair cost

    The Fiesta MKII R5 will have free repairs if you earn it through the game, AFAIK.
  2. Seasons. By this I mean: the leaderboards reset every so often. Quarterly, whatever. To line up with updates. Why: * Push people to stay engaged * Allow Codies to change the maps if they have to without invalidating every previous time. If they find out that there's a nasty cut, that will be part of season 1's times, but season 2 will not allow that cut. Whoever did the best on the season 1 version of the map will always have that record, but by allowing a reset, you free the team to fix the problems without worrying about backward compatibility.
  3. +1 iRacing does this with native support, ACC works fine with Eyefinity and has a "triple screen" box to tick if you are running 5760x1080 which fixes the distortion. It's really noticeable and a decent amount of your audience is the hardcore type who would be more likely to opt for triples. I suck at quoting, but everything Mike Dee says here! Even just the basic stuff - I run a daily WRX event and afterwards I have no idea of seeing what my lap times were, just the total. More stats, more records, more stuff to geek out about.
  4. https://www.symprojects.com/supported-games "Please check this page for the data available for each simulator" Which takes you here https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1voFgrTha5OSXUKY-Dk6jZYmDgoEN_mjnK7FXvk5r2AM/edit?hl=en&hl=en#gid=0 Offhand, some stuff that might be useful: * Position / Cars / Laps / Gap from Leader / Gap from Next (for rallycross) * Engine failure - maybe other ones * Shift light / Max RPM - so the shift light can configure itself automatically instead of having to have a fixed range Thank you!
  5. The core game is awesome. I love it. I have 200 hours into it and many more to go. I built my sim rig mostly to play this game (before rediscovering iRacing and ACC, which are now in the rotation too). I have a bunch of small complaints/annoyances but wanted to raise a couple specific things that I really like that not every title has: * You can map multiple inputs to the same function. For instance, I can have both the paddles on my wheel *and* a sequential shifter and they both work simultaneously. Most games do not let you do this. The use case: when you're in a hairpin and your hands are crossed up, or when you're recovering from a spin/almost spin, you can move your hands over to the sequential instead of trying to do something with the paddles when the wheel is spun around a bunch. Also: when you're going back and forth between stage rally and rallycross, you can use paddles in rally and the shifter in rallycross and not have to remap anything. * You can set collision force to 0 or near zero, separately from other forces. So if you have a DD wheel, you don't have to worry (as much) about injuring yourself in a shunt. What are some things you appreciate in DR2 that other games either don't have or don't do right?
  6. Evo IX. Not the WRC one with the goofy trunk/windshield wing. Like a Grp N car.
  7. Hi, former Destiny nerd here. There were all these awesome websites where you could see your stats, by class, by weapon type, etc. At the heart of it was the Bungie API. The Bungie website was okay but a lot of the 3rd party stuff was better. It doesn't seem like there's a similar API for Dirt - is that true? Suggested In game improvements: * I can filter to friends, but can't see me + friends at the same time. When I filter to friends, I can't see myself anymore. This makes it really hard to compare times, which is kind of the point of filtering to just friends. Filtering to friends should include the current user. * Home/end/pageup/pagedown key support would be nice * Some sort of guide/zoomer on the right that grouped the times so you can easily see "so what if i was 5 seconds faster, what if I was 10 seconds faster", etc. Similar to how you see the leaderboard the day after. * Being able to see individual stage times on multistage rallies Suggested website improvements: https://dirtrally2.com/community-events * I can filter to friends, but can't see me + friends at the same time. When I filter to friends, I can't see myself anymore. This makes it really hard to compare times, which is kind of the point of filtering to just friends. Filtering to friends should include the current user. * I can only see one page at a time. I can't see more than 10 results at a time. This makes it hard to find myself.. more results per page would be nice. tl;dr if there's an API, bored coders like me can do these things. Otherwise, some quality of life stuff would be appreciated. Thank you!
