    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT 5

    Well, been a while since I have popped my head in here. This post caught my eye (ear?). One of the BIGGEST things I have noticed going way back to DR1, is how you drive the car. If you drive like you would IRL, it will sound very realistic. i.e. 1) Driving like you CAN die 2) throttle blipping properly 3) not competing for top score, just smooth driving. So its partially related to your setup too, if you have a wheel setup you may drive a little more realistic since its a bit more natural to driving. A controller doesn't exactly put you in the car and your finesse may be a little off, since typically you have less granular input. So being that the sound has a lot to do with your input will change how you precieve the game producing a realistic level (if that made sense?) Just my thoughts...

    If anyone would ever listen at CM.. these tools help to promote your product, don’t just chuck us a bone, give us the whole meal, and we will tip you well with much content.

    I know you don't want to find out, but I wonder if he can really do anything. I have been in the design business for over 20 years in various capacities. If you design something FOR a customer and the transaction with that customer is made and finalized. They are allowed to do as they please once files are handed over. For example, you cannot copyright a logo that you design for a customer. Somewhere there is someone dumb enough to agree to it.. the designer is laughing all the way to the bank. However this is the greed that the world now feeds on. Everything has a price on it (what I am typing right now is probably sent to thousands of advertisers and data mined) It sucks, I am just glad old school artists have some freedoms.

    Been to PIMA, didn't realize that it was Private. I got a number of unique photos there, as well. Not too often do you find a B58 Hustler outside with typical desert dust on it, instead of the rather pristine museum pieces. MSFS is around 120gb to download. I think they say 150gb hard drive space after decompression. All in all... I am glad I got it on Gamepass, it crushes my system, and as much hype as there is about the scenery being so detailed, this is based on BING maps not Google. They do not have the most up to date data, also stuff like bridges are kinda right but they are built like buildings - they are solid objects. This is different on the hand crafted cities. I live near one of the cities that has not been touched. Anyhow, from about 500-1000ft up it looks pretty good except for a few autogen buildings. It was satisfying to crash into my house, though!

    Restoration hangers are the best. Up close and dirty. I had access to the Smithsonian AIr and Space museum's restoration and warehouse facility umm... (wow 20 years ago now) That was incredible to photograph! Some of the stuff that I saw there hadn't seen in public for more than 40 years. Many of the pieces have since been moved to display at the Udva-Hazy Center in Washington DC (technically Virginia) which is more like Smithsonian Air and Space museum 2. Still waiting to see a few of the planes that where way back in the dark corners. Going to the UK would be very overwhelming, some of the planes kept in Duxford and a couple others are extremely rare to see. It must be nice to be a days drive from the Mach Loop/Duxford/all of London historic places/and Wales Rally GB. I would probably run out of weekends to visit all that I have on my bucket list there 🙂 EDIT - Since I posted this (6hrs ago currently) I was 2 hours into DL MSFS2020 it still has 10gb to go! This thing is massive. I have pretty fast internet, too.

    My second passion is aviation, man you guys suck at identifying these. I admit the middle one could be a Hurricane or a Spit (hard to model at this scale). I guess as an American the first and last are very clear, I'll give you Brits a something for being confused, since these may not fly as regular over there.

    At least we can have some awesome screenshots, maybe CM will fire their legal department and hire some new ones with balls so there isn’t any more ‘licensing’ issues excuses, next time.

    Good for Paul. Glad he is back in the drivers seat of a new racing game. Besides with Codies buying up other racing studios, its good to see some [worthy] competition. I have nothing against Codies, but competition pushes everyone for quality.

    Haven't seen much in Racing game news that has got me excited about, then I read this: https://www.racedepartment.com/threads/pcars-3-new-developer-blog-post-upgrades.187838/ This is a feature (NOT UPGRADES, but how they work and the limits) that I have been wanting in DR for a long time. This should not be available on every car, Group B cars should stay the same. But I have mentioned in the past, for me it would be perfectly acceptable if licensing was an issue, that a could have low end cars where made up (a la Wreckfest) that are basically starter cars like most run in here in the US. There are some real s***boxes that run, but the teams have lots of fun and its what they can afford. But as with everything the more you learn and maybe budget more, you will upgrade your car with better suspension, engine (components), etc. Sometimes these are for the better and sometimes not depending on your car choice and driving skill - can you handle/compete but adding a turbo to your car, does it make sense to move into an other class where you are totally outclassed, does it break other parts of the car, do you now have a car with poor suspension but a faster car that is unweildly? I like the Physics based approach that SMS is taking, I hope it works out. I am not looking at the big picture of what works in a game. But I think this would ad some fun and competition to a lower class that many may ignore and also a little more realism than starting with an old Alfa that a small team couldn't afford to own (at least here in the US).

    This doesn't really give me the rock crawler vibe/struggle that I was hoping for. And Those fireworks are way out of place, its daytime.

    @PJTierney So do the car classes reflect the event types? I a bit confused. I am getting confused at to what this title really is.
