  1. Idk...Beamng is a pretty decent representation of a game that holds down complex physics both in vehicle damage and terrain physics...think if a big developer put in the time/money to polish that experience up... All you would have to do is make 6-7 detailed stages with some decent backroads to get from stage to stage. Gta and other vehicle focused games have already proven its possible. Also the fact that we are currently in "next gen" territory means pc developers wont be holding back so the ps4/xbox one can keep up. SSD, DLSS, etc. New tech brings about new things developers can push.
  2. This is definitely possible. Perhaps with the EA buyout, they will have the funding to make this a possibility. I made a video about this topic with WRC 8. Its amazing that almost everything you see in the game is real detailed terrain. It's a waste of resources Im sure but its still really cool to know, if you can see it, you can go there. Im sure its similar in dirt rally 1+2 so all that would be left is to flesh out the areas in the distance with some higher quality roads and assets. Here is the vid I was referencing.

    Dirt Rally 2.0 PS5 PSVR Patch?

    Does anyone with knowledge of programming think it would be possible for a PS5 patch that adds VR support to the game? I was under the impression it was on the table at some point but it had to be scrapped since the game was already taxing on the PS4 hardware. From what I understand, the PS5 will "Boost" PS4 games with its SSD, is it also possible they could release VR support since they have the groundwork done for pc? I usually play this game on PS4 with the PSVR headset just so I dont have to mount the TV a couple inches from my face.
  4. I mean, if they still hold the RX license by then, a splitscreen rallycross mode 1v1 would be a lot of fun.
  5. And get rid of that fake-ass cattle grid baked-in effect feeling.
  6. I would like Rallycross and Hillclimb to be included. Not only do they share many similarities, they mix up the action a lot! Landrush, gymkhana, etc. Those are Dirt games not Dirt Rally games. I will say, if they went all in on rally it would be spectacular! Im saying like, replicate it as detailed as possible. It would be cool to drive up to the start line instead of just magically appearing there. Would make the build up a bit more intense.
  7. I want MORE Rallycross content! Not only are Codemasters the official license holder of the RX games, they do it very well! If you play online multiplayer there are always RX servers going. I know Rallycross isnt the same discipline but its hard to say RX isnt in the same vein. Its basically where group B cars ended up and continue to be to this day if you think about it...
  8. ImodeI just checked and couldnt find it...I suppose I was thinking of a different game altogether... But yes, I enjoyed hill climbing as well. I hope the add like 3 or 4 hillclimb events in the next dirt rally.
  9. Dirt Rally 2.0 does have hill climb mode with Pikes Peak.
  10. How big of a difference will it make. I am getting to the point where max FFB settings are no longer enough for me. I have 2 cars IRL I setup for racing. 1 has no power steering the other does but its stiffer than most cars Ive driven. I actually have been using the wheel setup as a means to help recover my shoulder after surgery and I cannot increase FFB anymore on the CSL. How much better is the FFB with the Podium series? Enough to justify 1000+ dollars? Will it allow me to feel the surfaces more on Dirt Rally 2.0? The FFB on Dirt Rally 2.0 feels dead compared to Dirt Rally. You could argue its more realistic in the way that most cars have power steering but I would still like more detail from it. I know its semi risky buying a wheelbase that is not guaranteed to work on PS5 but I think PS would be fools to not have Fanatec be part of their future with VR and Racing games exploding in popularity during the outbreak.

    Fanatec CSL Elite VS. Podium wheelbase...PS5

    I would be very upset if PS5 didnt support all the gear I purchased. If it looked like there was no chance of support, I would most likely get a dedicated PC for sims. I have a strong feeling that Fanatec will be supported since they currently have an F1 PS themed wheel, the CSL Elite PS4 version and a DD PS themed wheelbase. Its also literally the only DD wheelbase that works with the PS4 without some kind of extra peripheral. I dont see Thrustmaster or Logitech stepping up their quality that much in the short amount of time there is until the PS5 is released.

    Car radio please on PS4

    I have played every gta actually. Great games! I dont think a radio would fit in with the dirt rally series, imo. I think it might go great in dirt 5! 🙂

    DiRT Rally

    This is one of, if not THE best games I've ever played and there are only 2 pages on this forum dedicated to it? Am I missing something? The only flaws, exclusive to Dirt Rally 1, that really bother me are: 1. Not enough Rallycross Circuits 2. If you barely touch a drainage ditch you do an immediate front flip. 3. Windshield wipers seem to do absolutely nothing unless you drive through a watersplash. 4. Online modes are very sparse. 5. Does not allow the use of a analog Fanatec handbrake without being in "yellow mode" (ps4). It works but it only recognises it as "O"...like an on off switch. It has an amazing FFB system and I wish Dirt Rally 2.0 followed a bit more in DR1's footsteps in that regard. I hope DR3 will have a better FFB system.
  14. Since Gran Turismo now holds the official licence for the Colorado Pikes Peak hillclimb, will the hillclimbing events still be featured in the upcoming Dirt Rally games? I know there are a ton of other hill climb locations in the world but as both Dirt Rally 1 + 2 only had that event, was it kind of like the only one Codemasters was interested in reproducing? I dont do the hill climbing events mostly because there is only one event but its a lot of fun when I do, you get to drive monsters! Also, please allow us to drive all cars in all racing disciplines in the future. Still class based but it would be a lot of fun to try the SuperRX cars in a rally. Or rally spec cars on the rallycross circuits, or an old mini cooper up a hillclimb event lol.

    Car radio please on PS4

    All racing games, all FPS games, The only 2 games I can think of that I left the music on are The Last of Us 2 and Robinson the journey.

    Car radio please on PS4

    Not a bad idea for people that dont play entirely for immersion in rally. I dont see myself ever using that feature but I am also one to turn ALL music off in most the games I play.
  17. Kinda like in the pits when your car is clearly up on stands and the suspension lowers down out of nowhere...why not load that before the game shows the player?
  18. I want there to be moving objects on the surface that will interfere with the car. Like in Argentina, all the bigger rocks on the side of the road could damage your car more or make the car lose a bit of control from the extra bumps. Patches of bad rocks could be implemented like puddles are throughout some of the wet courses.

    any Subaru group b love?

    Lol Not one of Subaru's prouder creations...
  20. Bullpupguy

    what if...

    Codemasters allowed you to map out your own route? Like just had a huge overhead area with tons of roads and you could just drag the mouse pointer or equivalent along the roads that you want to take.

    Future Hill Climbing Events?

    I really hope they allow all the vehicles in the upcoming game to be used for the hillclimb events. The Hillclimb mode felt very sparse and its a very exciting discipline.

    Vr support for ps4

    Im still hoping a ps5 patch will get released with vr added. I dont care if the resolution stays the same.

    tire/tyre type changes front/rear?

    I mean it would be weird but if its all you had to run in real life, it would go on the car. I think it would be cool if you werent forced to switch out all 4 if thats what you are saying.
  24. Bullpupguy

    what if...

    What if they allowed every car to participate in every dirt rally discipline... Rally Rallycross Hillclimb I mentioned this in another thread but I thought it was worth mentioning. Adds a ton of replay value imo. I would LOVE to use a SuperRX car on a rally stage or hillclimb and I would love to use the older cars in the hillclimb events and rallycross mode.
