    Oh, I think I know of THAT guy. Not many collectors of fine rally machines here in the US.

    Am I the only one that misses the Audi S1 from DiRT Rally? The E2 that we currently have is really cool and all, but the older one has a lot more wins and a bit of US Rally history.

    I have been waiting for Both of these locations a long time now. They are my favorites from DiRT Rally, and look superb in those screen shots. Even though I have always disliked the color filters done in DR1, I will miss the warm yellow/pink hue of Greece. It did seem to give the feeling of the hot sun beating on you, none the less I like the new. - Buying Season 3 twice for Rally content, skipping Season 4 because all RX - still supporting Codies either way 🙂

    This is nothing against Rallycross or anyone liking it, but I only plan to buy s3 no matter if it makes sense financially. I only want to send a message that my purpose for purchasing a Rally title is for Stage Rally, not a 50/50 Rally/Rx title. Again, its not that I hate the idea, but if I can make a small point to the bean counters that I personally prefer more stages and locations than RX, this is the only way I can.

    My post wasn’t intended to bash Codie’s Dirtfish content, though sometimes I scratch my head on some decisions. I think the location is good and well represented. Could they have went beyond that area, yes, but it would be just more of the same looking roads left unkept. I think @JZStudios makes a good point, though, right now it’s just a parking lot, somewhat intended since it’s more of a test area than a place for competition. However the way it’s set up feels a bit lost, since there is no defined circuit or stage, either with cones or whatnot, it feels out of place in DR2. I don’t want to be spoon fed, but giving some type of challenge for the location would help. FOR EXAMPLE: So you want a place to test and tune, great but you need some data to compare weather you adjustments are improving you car. If there were some preset course to follow in addition to the free roam to get a time from that would help to make Dirtfish more than a novelty that you play around with for 20min and never come back.

    I think games like FORZA Horizon has spoiled a lot of people. Their loose rules on user made liveries and being able to exchange them has more than likely created many headaches for the rest of the industry. On top of that the cross platform Windows/Xbox gameplay and interchangeability.

    After watching some videos of the Dirtfish in game, it seems that the entire complex has been modeled, even up to the visitor parking. It looks like the mill run rally sprint area is modeled as well, if I am seeing it correctly. None the less what has been modeled is a great step forward from DR4 which was fun to play around with all the extras, but just didn't feel like Dirtfish anymore. Hopefully at some point replay cameras will be set up for some fun hooning videos to be made - which is what i meant a few pages back by spectator cameras. I'll give Codies a ++ for adding this and giving it away for free. EDIT: After looking at it again, and comparing the maps, It looks like the larger area isn't modeled FROM DIRTFISH website Google Maps of the area that is modeled: and in game: Still not a bad effort and really a lot to play around in. It seems pretty accurate, even with some artistic license

    I believe the 2000 Focus will be getting updated sound recordings when it comes out - yeah I would say its all but official, it IS coming. No time to play right now, haven't seen any posts on the updated Lancia turbo/supercharger sound that was in 1.7.

    I wonder if the Old Mill rally sprint stage will be in this. IRL its not much, but it would be a great test area beyond a beyond a bunch of cones on tarmac. None the less, it will be interesting to see if there are new spectator camera positions.

    I think as more and more resources are pulled away onto GRID, there will less detail/features seen in the future. If there is a season 3 or even 4, expect 4 to have stick-figures and bruumm brummm brummm for audio effects. Its life of a DiRT release 🙂

    Your pretty much spot on. A few have tried to bring Ford over (KB and Tim O'Neal) but ironically Ford isn't interested in its own market. A works Ford team is pretty much doomed here since Ford decided to only sell SUV's and Trucks as of 2020. Yes, it gets boring some watching Subaru dominate, but this season has been better! There are a few privateers this year that are giving them good competition. Also quite a few are bringing MSport R5's over to race. Unfortunately for Subaru, they have been running into some mechanical issues this year, but it has made for an exciting season. One thing to note about Subaru here, is they do a lot of promotion for American Rally and have a fairly good contingency/support program for privateers running Subaru cars.

    So did I just state the obvious ? (again)

    That is interesting. All of my American friends and myself, we all prefer stage rally here. Sure we watch RX but not to play. On the other hand, only the hard core rally guys (that I know) are interested in the historic cars unless its a Subaru or Audi. Since Peugeot and Citroen are failed brands here there isn’t a real connection like the German and Japanese cars that are very well alive here today.

    No problem, easy enough to read and understand. I do like the career progression path from privateer to wrc 2 pro, etc... I kind of wished for DR2.0 to have a realistic career progression, like this. Its kind of there, but not exactly logical.

    A lot going on in my life, haven't posted much, lately. So I thought I would share this nugget - not my words, it was posted on a facebook group. Who in hell had the dumb idea to invent rallyracing? Two drunk guys with a warped sense of humor at a bar? Inventor: "We should invent a new more expensive motorsport." Other Guy: "Oh, you mean like dragracing?" Inventor: "Fawk no! Too straight. Too short, Nobody lives a quarter-mile at a time. Make the finish hundreds of miles away with turns." Otherguy :"Oh, like NASCAR." Inventor: "Fawk NASCAR! Make them turn booooth ways." Otherguy: "Uhm,..Roadracing." Inventor: "Roadracing?! Thats for damn pansies! We'll make them do it in the dirt and mud so it takes them weeks to powerwash their cars. Make them get dirty and blow chunky dust-boogers. Manly enough they can wear their-little-sister's-skinnyjean-racingsuit-and-fairy-shoes-and-no-one-will-care manly." Otherguy: "Yeah, .....thats still just racing with a carwash." Inventor: "NO!! We'll make them break their **** so they have to fix it during the race, .... in a forest, .... with no tools. Put HUGE rocks in the road, grow trees in the ditches for them to whack, gotchyas over crests. AND!,.. we'll make more turns than they can remember so they have to take a friend who can remember everything to crash into and to help fix broken ****." Otherguy: "A really good friend or a desperate ******* he is." Inventor: "Oh, but here is the better part. Tease em. Put HUGE glowing boards with finish flags at the end so they can see it and have hope they are almost done. BUT THEN, put a BIG jump before the finish with more **** like stumps and boulders to land on." Otherguy: "So they just do it one time?" Inventor: "Fawk no. We start the race very early and run it very late so they have no sleep. Have checkpoints to make them drive all over bum-fawk countryside. We make them share a pee in the woods. And we'll call it rally [/DrunkenSlur] because they rally wanted to finish it." Otherguy: "Brilliant! and then whoever still isn't fixing **** can have a party to compare how much **** they broke to see who the biggest loser was. Inventor: "And drink to forget so they will come to the next one." And that is how rally was born. Suckers!
  21. Love this design, nice change for the DAT-SUN 😉
  22. @SimVansevenant I can agree with that! A couple of those are very good.
  23. Looking over all these R5?liveries between ARA and WRC etc. I have noticed that everyone is using a basic design/pattern, yeah its changed up some, but many of them are just 3 colors. Now art is completely subjective I understand many probably like them. However as someone that had worked in the automotive wrap industry for many years, there are a lot of templates that are available of which many are similar and follow basic shapes. I wish more designers thought outside the box with color combinations, patterns, textures, etc just to differentiate themselves. Ken Block has been somewhat successful in for designs that are rather unconventional. anyhow not a rant, just an observation that I wonder if anyone else picked up on this?
  24. yeah, hope someone does a couple of these, nice to see some ARA liveries in the New England events
