    I am often updating my branch, I wouldn't read too much into when that one gets updated. What were you sayin'? ;) Different build :D

    We might have to start giving out clues if you guys don't hurry up.

    I am often updating my branch, I wouldn't read too much into when that one gets updated. Do you realize that this post is directly contradicting forum policy @CMMcBabe? You are supposed to reply with an ambiguous statement containing just enough information to fuel another bout of wild speculation. Your helpful and accurate reply gives us nothing to work with. There is between the lines on that, but I am maybe being far to subtle.  If I used italics it would give it all away and you guys hate it when we make it clear.

    Some liveries are bespoke and some are generated with the livery editor.  They only show up for some vehicles so as to not clutter the livery select with every livery that was made in the latter way.

    Vajb had the same problem in his weekly, and he did not quit before starting the first stage. Not sure how this bug occurs. EDIT: Forgot to mention - his name failed to appear on the leaderboards after one of the stages. Did this occur to you as well? We know the reason, connection issues to RaceNet during play.  One for the next patch.

    I wasn't 100% sure if we had said a time or not, I did not want to be the one making an unintended announcement! Christina's time is correct.

    I confirmed it is coming out at the same time everywhere, I did not call out a time.

    Given that Australia is a location in this game I'm quite worried about this hahaha I helped one of these little guys cross a road in Australia a few years back.

    I build these engines for a living, red line is 7500 stock, and depending on turbo, als setup, etc... they will make power out past 10,500rpm. Hell, my turbo doesn't even spool till 4300. You build Evo X R4 engines for a living? Hmm, weird. I've seen and heard lots of Evo X R4's in real life and it's quite clear that they're not revving nearly as much as in DiRT Rally. Take a look at this video for example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1yEyEiO5lEw The Evo X R4 should be driven with torque due to the nature of its engine in R4 spec. I know that there are some hill climb and rallycross Evo X's that easily rev over 7500rpm, but that's due to completely different rules. But watching that video you can quite clearly see how "wrong" the Evo X is in DiRT Rally so that's why I hope it would be more accurate in DiRT 4 :) I see what you're saying, they are just driving it like that to keep it in the torque band... look at the actual Rev meter in the middle, running about halfish....  And I'll be running some races in a bit, but I felt the Evo would drive like this in the game too, I'll check. Yeah I see :) So maybe there should be a lot less torque than there currently is after 5500rpm, so we would actually need to drive like in that video to be quick? That's what I meant with a more accurate torque curve, because I feel like the Evo X revs way too easily to that 7500rpm point... I might be wrong though, you seem to have a lot more experience with those cars in real life. Our auto boxes now shift at peak torque.  I actually noticed the Subaru on show on Thursday was shifting at quite low RPM, wasn't redlining at all but that was probably down to the setup plus not release build :) This is on purpose.  The car has lower torque so it needs to short shift to maintain power.  Some of the cars in Rally had the same setup.

    Not trying to be negative about demos, they are great.  The problem with them is they require a lot of development time that is not time on the main game.  You need to make a new build with the content cut (and hopefully not break something), add the new bespoke content (with all the testing involved), a pile of first party paperwork and send it to first parties where it gets the same level of testing as a full title (and can still fail at this point). They can be very rewarding, but are also very costly.

    You must like heavy metal. I am more of a hip hop and electronic fan. "Hairy" & "Near the camera" doesn't really narrow anything down!  lol Very hairy, as opposed to Paul's regular hairy.  My hair length might be longer than the total of everyone else there.

    I usually used some L'Oreal kids detangler on my hair in the morning.  It smells of pears.

    I'm not so sure. Derailments tend to escalate, so I shudder to think what the next one will be. We're on a new page now. Lets just forget about page 634 and never speak of it, nor visit it, ever again.  The ultimate troll would have dropped some pretty noteworthy and cryptic gossip there, you missed your opportunity there, guys.  But then again, Im glad you didnt :smiley: Unless there are going to be dudes with boobs coming to the next CM title then I don't think we missed anything @gfRally.  (Though it just occurred to me that the original comment from @CMMcBabe might have actually been hinting at a secret car wash mode) Rumbled!  We are working on Car Wash Simulator 2018.  I regret that you discovered it this way, through your good detectivating skills.  Start up going door to door, cleaning someone's car for a quid.  Work your way up, hire some other people (choice of local kids who are cheaper but less skilled or professionals who want more money) and eventually own your own handwash business. Finally a gossip! There will be a career mode. Always connected online career, compete against your friends.

    It is definitely not a trick to get people to come in and wash our cars.
