    DiRTy Gossip Thread

    The choice of doing an all-RX season 4 is interesting. I don't know if they did that because they found out that people have a high interest in WRX, or because they had some contractual obbligation. I mean, I don't know how many players actually care about the minor differences between the 2018 and the 2019 versions of those cars, apart from WRX enthusiasts

    Expecially if your community has a DiRTy Gossip Thread for speculating endlessly about the data found on Steam, I imaginešŸ˜…

    Throwing the cars around Dirtfish with the new physics will be great fun, it already was in D4 but now slides should be HUUUGER

    I was talking about the new Giulia and the Stelvio: they did pretty well in some surveys against their German counterparts. The MiTO is a lot older project... As a Ferrari fan, let's just not talk about reliability, expecially during F1 qualifying

    *Were not known. The latest Alfa Romeo cars have reliability that seems on par with their German rivals. Most supercars nowadays seem to have ironed out that "feeling hot today might catch fire later idk" issue they had. Besides, Italian cars have the HUGE advantage that they look beautiful even as standing stillšŸ˜Ž

    If I studied correctly from @tbtstt, the switch from S1 to E2 happened because the FIA wanted all evolutions of all Gr.B cars to have an 'e' in the model name: this is why the Lancias are called Evo or Evoluzione. The germans had to switch to the new denomination by the FIA, but since they don't like being told what to do by the French, they call the car S1 E2 nowadays to mantain their original denomination. At least, this is how I see it.

    Wales Rally: Available Now

    To be fair, Wales was always one of the locations which looked better in the original DiRT Rally, alongside Greece, in my opinion. So there was less to improve there

    Sweden in DR1 felt like someone forgot to turn on the lights and then remembered about it and switched them on mid-stage. But the light was the sun

    The various options for weather and time of day were probably the best part in D4. They gave you the opportunity to schedule an entire rally in a realistic way and, even though the environments looked always the same, the changes in the sky made the stages look always different. It was really immersive and, with all its different combinations, made me feel like I was in a real rally

    It used to do the same thing in the first DiRT Rally, at least on PS4. It was never fixed, I hope it gets now. I guess sometimes the games forgets that there are trees there and that they should cast shadows

    Ford isn't particularly interested in backing official programmes in most of rallying to be honest, M-Sport have been fighting a lot in the last few years for more support...

    The fact that none of this is actually shown in the menus makes the system seem way less impressive than this though. I mean, I haven't seen a way to check how much wear the tyres have, in the service park it only says "worn"... Do you happen to know if tyre temperature is simulated as well?

    The part where I have to avoid doing stupid stuff is what gets me...

    Are we talking about community events or career? Because a spare tyre can be quite useful in longer rallies. I had to retire once because I punctured the rear right tyre on the Alpine and, because the car has no locking diff, I could barely get up to 40 kph in the top gear, while the rim was spinning like crazy and making sparks.

    I've had the standard rim on my T300 since I bought it and I've played all sorts of racing games with it. Never had a problem and I don't think a dedicated rim would make me faster at F1, whereas a Formula rim for DiRT would be utterly useless
