  1. Having spent some time looking a few years back, you are going to struggle to find one much cheaper I'm afraid. My clubsport one stopped being recognised on my PS4 after DiRT Rally (D4 didn't recognise it at all) So at the moment it is not being used as my pc is in another room and not hooked up to my Obutto set up...

    It's looking like I'll have to sell some body parts to fund one of the massively over priced Thrustmaster units...


  2. Handling is always very subjective. Some will love it, some will hate it.
    A few will come here and shout at each other about it trying to convince each other they are right, and the other is wrong.

    It's all fairly pointless. If it's fun, play it. If not, don't :)

    Why is a NASA computer recommended? Graphics looks kind of similar to Dirt 4, plus it runs on consoles? Is this a port? Dirt Rally was awesome because it was a PC game in first place.

    That's not a NASA computer. My pc is 3+ years old and meets all that beside CPU.

    WRC 8 should look good. Same people did V rally 4 and used the Unreal engine, so it isn't a great leap to assume they will use the same engine for WRC8.
    If the can tweak the handling from WRC7 then it should be a fun game to play.
    V-Rally 4 used KT Engine created by Kylotonn.
    My bad, your correct.

    Was sure I read some ware that it used the unreal engine, or at least part of it.  

  4. Last time an American rally made the wrc was in the 80's https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olympus_Rally
    if the game is basing all stages on real roads, could this be a contender? 

    What is the most iconic rally in America at the moment?

    I have a question @jonny174 , if you don't mind: I think you said that you had to practice quite a bit to get used to the sim driving of WRC 7, in order to be competitive. That, however, is not a sign of a realistic game. How much of your real techniques can you apply directly to DiRT Rally 2.0 compared to WRC 7?
    He said in the livestream that the techniques used for driving the real car were the same as driving them in this game suggesting it's very close to the real thing indeed. Can't remember at which point he talks about it but if you skip to where he joins the guys on the sofa you'll find it.
    I don't think he said the "techniques" were the same. 
    He was asked what was more difficult. Driving a rally car in real life, or in game. He said they were both about the same level of difficulty now.
    He also added that it requires the same effort to pitch the escort the way you want as in real life. So one can assume he's suggesting they handle very similarly.
    Well in that case...
    Move over Sébastien Ogier, I've arrived :sunglasses: :D

    I think a team management can work. But rather work with seasons/championships/tier based

    Tier 1
    - Maximum weekends that you can do in one season are 8 weekends. So for example you can do a championship of 5 rounds and choose if you do 1, or 2, or 3 extra guest entries somewhere and if you can find budget for that. 
    Tier 2
    - Maximum weekends that you can do in one season are 10 weekends.
    Tier 3.
    Etc. 

    - Team personnel you give a contract for a season or multiple seasons. So not that in the middle of an event is gone. If you do multiple championships you might need to get more personnel, or hire personnal for an event or two if the capacity is not enough. 
    - Based on type of car, championships, reputation you can hire better personal. A top mechanic want to work on a WRC / WRX Supercar, instead of 2wd R2 Fiesta. But if you have a good reputation, good performances on track, maybe a top mechanic want to work with you in the RX S1600. 
    - A sponsor can be for a season or championship. After the season your sponsor is happy and want to invest more or if not happy, could leave. For the guest entry in a other championship you might be able to look for an event sponsor. 
    What if they made it so if you keep changing the setup of your car or break it too much the mechanic just gets **** and starts shouting, drinking heavily, throwing things around and then walks out mid event?
    Well... I've never walked out of an event :D

  8. They normally have 2 long stages and then cut them up. Honestly, I'd be surprised if they did anything else.

    Hopefully, they keep churning out DLC for the base game for a few years. That way, we'd get a far bigger games that feels fresh for longer. I know DLC is a touchy subject but personally, if it's of good quality, I'll buy it. AC showed that you can release a game and then keep adding content and updates for years.

  9. If the stages were randomly generated, and you wanted to save your favourite stage, then I can see a place for this system.

    But seeing as the stages are all bespoke, once you've been down them a couple of times you will know the places to watch out for and when you can push a little more. 

  10. A proper simulation need way more power to run than a Console or a home PC has available. Doesn't matter what Sim you pick, someone will always find flaws in it. Pcars, AC, Iracing… the list goes on and on. I guess their will always have to be a trade off some ware in the simulation.

    That said, If you thought DiRT Rally was good, then your gonna love this! It's a big improvement over DiRT Rally :) and that wasn't half bad ;)
