  1. The S1+S2 DLC package (Deluxe Upgrade), didn't go on sale for 3 months after release in late May, even though the full bundle of the base game+deluxe (Deluxe Edition) was on sale a month prior in early April. We're still only 2 months and some change from the introduction of S3+S4 (Aug 26th). It will likely see the first discount during the upcoming holiday / Thanksgiving / xmas sales if they stick to a similar timeframe of S1+S2's separate discount. Bundles of everything are always different, and are there to entice those who don't have the game at all yet.
  2. I'd have to guess concerns that some PC users would be able to easily unlock/hack/mod to make available all the content of the full game on PC? Sounds like you're still basically downloading the whole thing on console if it's 70gigs! That's crazy. But then it's not a demo, it's a trial where you can pay to unlock the rest of it?
  3. Why the heck did they leave out the weather this time? Finland in Dirt Rally had rain. What's the point of reducing variety in the weather conditions on rally stages? (remake or not... more is better than less).
  4. The Ford Fiesta RX2 always has a cracked windshield and windows once I'm on the track in any event or time trial. Repairing does nothing if I'm doing a full RX event, and it always looks fine in the service area, but once I'm in the car it's totally busted.

    It's frustrating that they still don't have them in there while F1 on Steam does (and has for a few years now), and now apparently the Windows Store version of DR2.0 supports them? I haven't downloaded via Game Pass to verify since I would miss that feature even more in the version where all my DLC lives.
  6. @ebarbs27 @HAMW05WC2014 @AlexSpartan316 @DaleRossi @JosephM635 @Selsis I hope you folks (and all other cockpit drivers) weren't hoping for a prompt fix to those busted gear indicators in Greece! I was wrongly expecting them to patch this already, but it's looking like it may not even make the next major update due in a few weeks time. Thought you may want to know since I haven't seen any potential timeframe mentioned here for this issue. From /r/dirtgame:

    Yeah, but having the option for those that want it would still better than not having the option at all. You could still choose to not ready up until you have the info you need... What he proposed is a manual ready up check to skip the forced times, not an automatic skip or a shortened timer. And I 100% agree with him there, the forced waits with no option to skip when it's just my friend and I doing some laps is pretty ridiculous.
  8. Not just daytime, the dusk condition in Greece is doing the same to plenty of cars, too. Hope it's fixed real soon.
  9. Is that every stage for you? I've only noticed it on the new Greece stages, and only the daytime variants (manually enabling lights does nothing as well). Edit* not just daytime, also at dusk. Anyway, same issue here with the R5 Peugeot:

    What was in today's 4.8GB Steam update? Did they forget to include Greece with the 1.8 patch which said those files were added? I can't find any details.
  11. It's hard see a difference, especially with the TAA blur in action, but it seems like a mix of things - such the amount of and repetition of character models, the number of ones which are animated, and the distance which the render from extremely low levels of detail to the higher ones that look more like people. I still don't understand why it's such a drastic difference in performance in low to ultra, it's really kind of insane considering you can't really tell a difference when driving by them fast on a stage. If you need performance you should be turning them off entirely or using the lowest setting, low still gives you the atmosphere of having spectators and at night you'll still see the roadside flares and camera flashes, but you'll get way more fps than the higher settings. I've been using low since the start and can't say I'm missing anything there. It's not like I'm stopping and staring at them, I'm generally focused on the road ahead.
  12. They should probably rework the D+ into S3&S4+ or something else to avoid confusion with previous Deluxe owners here. Deluxe no longer applies to current and future content, and the D+ events were always Deluxe ownership specific (hence the D!), but now that's no longer true. They tried to outline what the color coding of the logo means in the recent roadbook update, but obviously it's not good enough and not everyone will see that, either. I never bought Deluxe, but even though I owned the specific cars and tracks being used in those events, I could never enter them. Which I'm totally fine with, it's a special bonus for Deluxe owners specifically. No different here with S3, though even I still assumed D+ meant Deluxe at first until they mentioned otherwise in the update. The branding is definitely confusing to those out of the loop.

    I'd be happy with something basic like allowing all cars and classes to be drivable on all RX tracks and Rally stages in the custom modes. It's still not totally custom when there are arbitrary restrictions. Someone made a mod for this for Dirt Rally (ACAT), and it was really cool. More versatility there since it opened up Pikes Peak to all cars as well. It was sort of buggy, but something Codemasters themselves could sort out if they wanted to.

    Speaking of the 2001 Subaru interior, what's up with these always overbright bits in the dash? It's real distracting, looks so unnatural in action.
  15. What's going on with these always brightly lit portions of the dash in the otherwise darkened interior on the new subaru?
