    DiRTy Gossip

    To be fair it's from the Buy My Volvo video by Castor. This guy made an ad when he was to sell his old car and he got Volvo so impressed that they sent him a new car to do a similar video for it. And sold his old car to be used in a Forza commercial. Quite amusing! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JJ0nkStZnWo

    And I'm just as guilty :). BTW, nice ride  I go for cat and dog stickers on mine, for that rally feeling! #lolvo

    Benniz's rally driver debut - The thread

    Really nice set of videos @Benniz‌. I must say I'm really envious of you, even if I have some nice new gear for the 2015 season, karting simply is not rallying that's for sure. :) If you guys ever end up in a south Swedish rally I'll come cheer you on. I can really recommend Snapphanerallyt, haven't driven it but the stages looks awesome from the side of the road!

    I'm always on the lookout for nice stickers, still waiting to get my hands on some DiRT3 ones for my toolbox. I'd suggest you team up with We The Terrors, their stickers has a lot of attitude and is a lot more fun than "just a sticker with a logo". Another thing I'd love to have is a quality DiRT fitted cap to wear in the service park between shakedown and stages.

    In-game League Support

    I guess a single thread would do fine, lets say it has the leaderboard tucked in somewhere and there is a possibility for the members to discuss stuff. I do like the idea of the public being able to follow the progress and maybe post comments and show support in some way, maybe this waould be a way of recruiting people to the tournament.

    In-game League Support

    I like the Manufactures points, u can do that in combination with a Co-Up mode online championship, so u can form with ur friends a team! ( Online and offline) And about the damage if u have more then 1 stage between the service, .. that is a must in rally. After all its not JUST driving flat out! , Its driving on the maximum but also try to keep your car together! Exactly, great minds think alike! :)

    In-game League Support

    A lot of cool stuff has already been brought up here, my apologies if I repeat some of what has already been taken up.  I really enjoyed the DRC that ran on the forums a while ago, that concept would be great. At the same time, part of the warm fuzzy feeling came from uploading your times and discussing with others about setup and so on. Plus the shear fact that it was a quite closed group with a real passion for the game.  I don't want to be elitistic, so open the thing up for more people to enjoy. I can think of a few details one could implement to try to mimic and improve on what we had here at the forum, which @justbiglee‌ so wonderfully orchestrated for us:  Associate the leaderboard with a "forum like thread" where all the contestants can discuss various things like setup etceteraGive a deadline for each race, times must be posted by a given timeGive the possibility to restrict access or knowledge of the next round of stages until the current stage(s) are doneThe organizer can choose how many chances the driver has to complete the stage(s)Possible to restrict training for hardcore drivers, a system could be in place that restricted the number of training runs a driver can do, optionally even including a restriction of single player activity until a valid time is postedGive players the chance to form teams and compete for manufacturers pointsIf possible put a service twist to the thing, damage could be carried over to the next round if the league is ran one stage per roundSome thoughts, as always I cannot wait to see what you guys are up to!

    I'll pay good money to get another abbreviation for early access. Can not stop thinking about another game publisher. And maybe an EAx fork of this thread. :)  Cheers!

    DiRTy Gossip

    This is terrible news. I really have no insights into this, but I thought Codies were doing alright? Not getting on the current gen console train with GRID AS and F1 2014 seemed to be a strange path to follow, the articles hints at that being a reason for them not selling as much. I for one did not buy Autosport because it was on last gen, I was voting for a current gen game with my money. I am now starting to doubt that decision. I have always enjoyed playing Codies games and to me they have always been one of the hallmarks of game development, pretty much ever since I became aware there is such a thing as games, sometime back in the eighties.  If it would come to it I would gladly hoist up the money for a new rally game in advance, for some kind of early beta access or alike.  Bottom line, I just hope everybody affected will be alright, I know loosing ones job can be a pain. Especially if you really like what you are doing. With all the passion coming from people at Codemasters in the past I really hope the studio will prevail!

    Thank you for an awesome year guys! It has been great to take part in this rather strange gossip thread where we experience constant oscillations between hopes and crushed dreams. I hope we'll see a lot of gossiping next year, more hopes being realised in a game, and that we finally get to know what that car is... Merry Christmas and a DiRTy new year from a snowy Sweden!

    Food for thought, if Milestones looses the WRC licence... Then maybe.. Codies? Ooo! Excitement (possibly)!

    I think it should be called just that for exactly the same reason. We already miss you @JonTucker‌ !!

    DiRTy Gossip

    Very interesting read from @justbiglee‌! Thanks for sharing. When all of this is out in the open and people are free to talk, I do hope we can get explanations to some of your teasings during these last twelve, or so, months. Teasings which, by the way, has been a nice distraction, but a tad frustrating at times! We wanna know! :)

    Wheel for PS4

    Yeah, for me they would have been great. I have a couple of friends who are into iRacing and that sort of hard-hardcore stuff and they seem to like Fanatec pedals better. So maybe I can get my hands on a set of un-used pedals from the T500 package, and then buy the T300 to go with them.

    Wheel for PS4

    Next title in line would be Project Cars I guess. They have listed both the T300 and the T500. Loads of simracers seems to buy the T500 and then use another pedal set, I'll try to find someone who has done that and then buy their pedals, I think.  No word from Codies on what will be supported for F1 2015 I guess?

    Wheel for PS4

    Yeah, this pretty much sums up what I have learned so far.  I'd really like the T300 with the Ferrari wheel, but the pedal set is really up to par with the wheel it seems. If I buy the T500, will I be able to use it in the future? That's the big question. I think game devs, console makers and peripheral manufacturers should be a bit more open with their intentions at moments like these when nobody knows what the intention is with support for different hardware.

    Is there a chance there will be a replacement for the T500 with new brushless engines?

    DiRTy Gossip

    That to me is the most exciting news comming indirectly from the DiRT team since it became apparent that they where working on a new title at all. Thanks for sharing! I do hope we can keep the speculations on a good level even after the loss of @Rallycameraman‌ , @RallyDriven‌ and @tbtstt‌ to the NDA. 
  22. Go for a good meme on the packaging:   Much speed                                        Such dust           Many car                          How muddy Or is this a violation of the rules?

    Maybe this shift is mainly going on in Sweden. A lot of our promising rally drivers have switched from the World Rally scene to that of rally cross. I understand it from a business point of view, probably a bit easier to get a budget to do it.  However, add some basesball caps, skateboards and energy drinks to the rally scene and we might get a shift back in the, according to me, right direction.

    Rallycross is fun but I want cars with rear lights. What do we need to do to stop the trend of everyone and everything moving from rally to RX? #rxgate

    Hey guys, just a thought... Is it time to create a new thread for the visit to codies and let us have all the speculation and guessing here? I get very excited when I see new messages in this thread, only to find that it is about the visit which I cannot attend. #smileyface2sadface
