    Dirt Rally 3 - Wish List

    For Monaco, this one can't stay out: https://www.rally-maps.com/Rallye-Monte-Carlo-2015/Sisteron-Thoard
  2. That list is gone lol, it disappeared after a few patches since the issues got solved, or at least most of them.
  3. Ok, this has been some subject for quite a while ago, and it has emerged again with the broadcast mode being added to the game. We've been discussing this on Discord, and to be honest there's a way (hopefully simple) to make these 2 happen in a patch. 1. Let's start with staggered starts: The idea here is not to show the cars on the stage, as we know it's not technologically possible now with the current engine. However, staggered starts can be implemented and simulated by a simple addition to the stages: countdown timer for each player. Basically the first runner gets the normal countdown '54321' once everyone is in, while the second runner gets a bigger countdown like 1 minute and 5 seconds, the 1 minute being the staggered timer. And of course, since you're letting us turn on a staggered start, let us define the timer between 30 seconds and 2 minutes (can be a preset like 30, 60, 120 to make it easier to change in the lobby settings). This feature should be fairly simply to add, as it's basically adding stuff over what you already have implemented, and it would do wonders for multiplayer lobbying. It's a shame we can't taste a mix of clubs + lobby for this awesome broadcast mode. 2. Now let's move on to stage degradation in lobbies: Currently you define the stage degradation for the whole rally event (if i remember correctly). The idea here is to let us set up stage degradation per stage, instead of per rally, similar to how you have done in clubs. Also make sure you give us the degradation options from Clubs as well (low, medium, max), to add to the existing ones in the lobby. Not sure why Clubs had a different degradation setup than lobbies, and in reverse, but it should be the same. 3. Last but not least, let us turn off the countdown timer that starts whenever someone finishes the stage. I'm not sure if this has been looked into, but this option needs to be there. Currently you can only define the timer to either be 30, 60 or 90 seconds. I can see the problem this will arise, by making lobbies longer and possible some griefing once this timer is off. How to solve this? Simple: let the lobby host finish the session, by adding such button on the context menu, or whenever everyone finishes, the timer to move on to the next stage will start. This will have to be done if staggered starts are to exist, and will also mean the broadcaster will have way more power and margin to coordinate the broadcast/stream. Pretty simple things, compared to other features you've been working on, but they do have a big impact on the user experience (for the positive).

    This could be useful for the multiplayer lobbies broadcast mode.

    Could be a good tribute : )

    Eventually and hopefully the zone limits will be adjusted to prevent this in the future. Either reset or time penalty like in other CM games.

    Is the WRC license really a loss?

    While I find it a shame to be missing out on the current cars and tracks, i'm really more inclined to the rally golden era of the late 90s till 2004. What bothers me the most about DR2 is the lack of stages per rally, as there should be another route to pair with the existing one in each rally. Also the fact that the stage length is limited by the engine. A wider range of stages is needed, and since we won't see this one in DR2 I'm hoping DR3 gets the definitive improvement in this area. This game engine is old and we need a new one in order for this series to progress. WRC8's few advantages is the variety of stages, even if they aren't really accurate to their real counterparts. Another weak spot that has been improved but isn't quite there is the lack of early 2000s cars, and having them put in its own class. Efforts have been made in this game, specially with the return of the so demanded 206 WRC. The next logical step is to approach the Citroen Xsara and SEAT Cordoba and put them all in a special class so that events can be properly done without any handicaps. Finally but not least important, there's some game design decisions that could've been better regarding My Team. My Team is a platform with so much potential but it looks like it hasn't been properly put to use. While a single-player career mode could've been implemented, My Team could've been the ultimate multiplayer esports platform for everything - a full online career in which ultimately you'd have the conditions to participate in esports events. Just like GRID (2 or Autosport, can't remember) had its own multiplayer career mode. However, they opted to host all of this stuff outside My Team, and with the arriving of Clubs My Team is mostly useless and inactive apart from Community Events. My Team could've been the whole multiplayer platform, including Clubs. Instead, they chopped the multiplayer into separated modes, creating redundancies. This game overall is great, not perfect. We'll never achieve the perfect game, because there's so much to add in a game like this that we'll never ever get there. There's no perfection in life. We can, however, learn with each iteration of this Rally series and improve upon the next one. This series is crying out loud for a new engine. There's no point developing a 3rd game in this same engine, because it's getting so limited in so many areas that we are gradually reaching and scratching. - Stage length. - Dynamic weather with live terrain and grip deformation/change. - Staggered starts, both with cars in the stage or invisible. - Tarmac physics and others - More realistic and hardcore damage, the current hardcore isn't hardcore enough imo.
  9. You can buy stuff individually.
  10. For those who don't have anything, not even the game, the Super Deluxe brings everything. You don't buy the base + deluxe + super deluxe, that's wasting money buying duplicate content. Those like me who have pre-ordered the Deluxe Edition, if they want to buy new stuff either buy the Deluxe 2.0 which is Season 3 + Season 4, or buy things individually at their taste. For example, since I'm not interested in Season 4's RX content, I'm opting to purchase only the Season 3 content except for Yas Marina circuit.

    Track Limits in DiRT World Series

    Yes, this is a very hot subject that has been discussed for quite a while now. There needs to be a policy regarding these cuts. This is not about how we can tackle these cuts, because there are several ways to do it: applying penalty times, making the offroad terrain have more attriction and slippery, whatever works. Since this cannot be done in time for the qualifiers, i would suggest using the already implemented ghost technology to check top times and see if people are using cuts.
  12. DR1 is done for. Makes no sense going back when we have a way superior game in DR2. The only way is to keep building on DR2 while a new engine gets developed for DR3 in the background.
  13. Can you stop posting amazing liveries? Who am I kidding, just keep posting these! Ever thought of porting the Focus 2001 Martini liveries onto the Fiesta R5? Could look interesting.
  14. When everyone got extra cars in Season 1 and Season 2, while it only said since the begining that it would only bring 5 cars each, noone batted an eye. Just saying, I feel cheated. Anyway, things were pretty crystal clear. Season 3 and 4 are for those who want to keep supporting this game and see more content added to their game. It's an option, and as in all options you have to choices: to take it or to leave it be while you convince yourself to take it.
  15. Yes! At least 1 extra route (they currently use 1 route) would be awesome. I think that's the main wish from the community now, more than the cars.
