    They can re-use the model from DR1 and launch it as DLC after Season 4. Content doesn't need to come out at such fast pace after that. I'd love to see the livery market flow, with the official liveries so the licensing would pay itself.

    Possibility of Purchasable Skins?

    Hmm yeah, to be honest I could see the skin market work. I mean some would rant, but that's normal around here. On the other hand, some would purchase and get an unique look. It'd be a nice way to get the Martinis and others. @PJTierney is there any way this could be suggested in the studio and who knows, a test be made to see if people adhere? Purchaseable Martini liveries would be dope. Let's see what they think. I could see this work in the near future, as people will want to show off with the official liveries like Ford Martini ones, Mitsubishi Marlboro, Peugeot Total, etc. These liveries should stay strictly historic though. So for example, you'd only have Martini liveries available to purchase on the cars that used it in real life, like the Ford Focus Mk1, Lancias, etc. Same for Marlboro, only available in the Lancer Evo VI, Peugeot 206 (not sure if any other used it). Otherwise, it'll get silly.

    Super deluxe edition ? -_-

    While I obviously prefer cheaper content (cheaper in price of course), I think DR2's DLC was a little bit too cheap. It feels like they could've pushed the price a little bit further for better funding, as I'm unaware if the current price actually pays off. That is, if we compare the prices to FH and AC DLC. As a first try, it's not bad the way it is, and I hope this whole investment turns into a victory for both sides so that we can have more of it in the future.

    Super deluxe edition ? -_-

    I find it unfair for people to say the locations revisited are a copy/paste. In fact, these revisits present quite a lot of changes despite being the same routes. These routes have been used for decades in real rally racing and still people go watch it because it's fantastic and iconic. The return of these locations from DR1 is thrilling because we can experience these tracks with better physics and proper jumping physics and track degradation for the first time. There's also the graphics update part, which isn't so notorious because DR1 maxed was already great and reached a satisfactory standard for racing games. But still, this one also matters. When DR3 is announced, I'm counting to see all the DR2 locations and tracks as the base game, put together with an extra route for each rally and I wouldn't like to see people bashing CM for rehashing content. That's how racing games are supposed to be, you are supposed to have the best and most used tracks in real life. Ouninpohja has almost always or always been used in Finland Rally, and i hope it keeps being used forever. It's a benchmark for cars and drivers and an historic mark. And I hope it stays forever in the coming DiRT Rally titles, along with all the other tracks that took so much work to get done, because they are simply brilliant, accurate to reality, and so well crafted. What i do want to see is more rally stages, and I will glady pay for every single one of them. Current content should not go to waste. I understand some of the frustration people are having by the fact that there's no new rallies coming during DLC, I wanted more too (Corsica, San Remo, Portugal, etc). Probably that won't happen anymore now, as the new rallies have been put in the base game (and imo it was the correct choice). But the fact that the masterpiece locations from DR1 join the new ones in DR2 optionally, that means that we will have, for the first time in a long time, a nearly completed WRC calendar on a game that has proper graphics, proper sound, proper physics and technology that we haven't had before. And for that, I am very thankful to have the opportunity to experience such immersion in virtual reality since I lack the funds to do what I most wanted: rallying.

    Possibility of Purchasable Skins?

    The thing is, a skin would never be $25 while the car itself is $3. Know what i mean? Even if a martini skin for the focus mk1 would be 2 dollars, im sure a lot of folks would purchase it. Not sure if it'd cover the licensing costs anyway. 100 purchases would be 200 dollars and Im sure the martini license costs more than that. However, there's 4 different martini color schemes for the Focus: 1999,2000,2001,2002. So if each were 2 dollars, maybe they could make more money. Anyway, that martini scheme isn't alone, there's also the Telefonica/Movistar to pair with Martini, so they'd have to get that too. It's more complex than it seems, sadly. It should just be a painting...but brands prefer not to treat it like that.

    Agree. Plus if you want heavy storm, try Poland with heavy rain 😄

    Feeling a bit disenchanted...

    No, they shouldn't. The deluxe price was already a bargain (specially during the 50% sale), and it was announced since the begining, before even the game released that the Deluxe Edition would only include Season 1 and 2. There was never any information leading otherwise. DLC is optional, you are not forced to buy it, but noone works for free either and the content they are bringing in have costs, licensing being one of the main costs. So that investment needs to get paid off. Steam VR is already a free giveaway, and a big one. Sound updates as well.

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - Seasons 3 & 4

    Supposedly, it's easier now for them to add more times of the day because they no longer have to manually place the shadows in the map. The lighting is dynamic. So i don't know why there's less times than in the previous games. It has no logic. I'm also missing some weather combinations, specially fog. There's no fog anywhere, and fog in Wales is a must. I hope some kind of volumetric fog is introduced in a patch. I liked the patches of fog and the foggy weather in DiRT4.

    I haven't heard anything about that anymore. They were trying to get one sourced but apparently it was halted for some reason.

    DiRT Rally 2.0: Report Bugs Here

    The devs already have the list, so it's pointless to keep posting it again and again, specially after the bug reporting rules were changed to improve bug tracking and report.

    The whole 1999-2002 years were phenomenal. In that era, WRC cars were pretty advanced and they looked very good. Plus the amount of quality drivers made it for one of the most iconic and thrilling eras of rallying. It's a pitty Toyota decided to quit in 1999, they won that year and they missed one of the best eras.

    Get ready, the PUG 206 is coming 😄 Such an iconic team. Iconic drivers: Marcus Gronholm, Gilles Panizzi, Didier Auriol, Richard Burns, Harri Rovanpera, Francois Delecour Iconic Team Principal: Corrado Provera, such a boss. Iconic car: Peugeot 206

    Also, it seems Codies managed to source a 206 WRC for sound recording. So I can't wait to see how it looks and how it sounds in-game. I bet it's going to be awesome. HYPE ACTIVATED

    I like the silver painting better, with the red total, in the second picture. Hope they unlock the liveries at some point.

    Think that has to do with the respective car they modeled after. Some old chatter about that since DR1. Despite the Evo VI being in the right class due to regulations. It did however compete in the WRC class as well, because it was part of that era where Group A's and the new WRC class could be competing together, mixed. And that should be properly represented in DiRT Rally 2.0 at least in Clubs. We could pick the cars in DR1 leagues, so i hope this features transits as well to DR2 Clubs. The main reason for people, including me, asking for the Evo 6 in DR1 was to pair it the Focus and Impreza 2001. Now with the 206 coming, it'd make it 4 amazing cars for an amazing manufacturers season. Still praying for the 2001 Xsara, or any Xsara at all being WRC 2000cc regulated. Not really interested in the F2 version. PS: Not enough kudos were given to CM from me for bringing the 206 WRC. So here's so more kudos ❤️ it's a load of fresh air (no more loafs ).
  18. Ok, so there has been a lot chatting around this subject for a long time, and it's time to make statistics work so everyone can know what we're dealing with here. Season 3 is almost guaranteed, provided there's enough content hinted to fill that season. However, there's absolutely nothing about an hipothetical Season 4, and that's where we come in. Would you buy a Season 4+ and what content would you like see from that season on? Post your suggestions and ideas, as there is A LOT left to add in this game. Here are a few ideas: - Super Special Stages for each rally, like in DiRT3 and previous titles. These are similar to RX circuits and provide a Head 2 Head experience (see here: https://youtu.be/ufNz_YQJ9fg ) - Two more long stages for each rally, to improve variety. That would make a total of 4 long stages per rally. - New rallies, besides the missing DR1 ones. E.g: Portugal, Corsica, San Remo, Kenya, etc - Early 2000s 2000cc car class fulfilled (Peugeot 206 WRC 2001, Citroen Xsara T4 WRC 2001, Ford Focus WRC 2001, Subaru Impreza WRC 2001, Subaru Impreza WRC 1997-2000, etc) - Tarmac physics 2.0. - Tyre features expanded, tweaked wear rates to make Medium and Hard compounds relevant. - Better weather system, with the ability of providing different conditions during a stage like sometimes it happened in D4 (has to be the synced for everyone in multiplayer). - Improved spectator mode / photo mode. - eSports every year, throughout an entire season like in real life. Can't think of anything else right now, so fill this topic with your suggestions. Number 1, 2 and 3 is already a lot of work 😉
  19. Could also be a way to hide possible content, since one of the CM mods commented that the steamdb gave way too much info.

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - Seasons 3 & 4

    There's plenty of time throughout Season 3 and 4 to implement those fixes and who knows maybe some features. The game will keep selling, so it's not a dead end.

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - Seasons 3 & 4

    There's still alot of content to do, either for DR2 or DiRT Rally 3. So the possibilities aren't even near the end at all. Besides some of the most requested rallies still being absent, there's also the stages. One more stage per existing rally is already itself a tremendous amount of work if they are to keep the "real course" and the same level of detail like the others. There's also a few other iconic cars missing from the 2000s, better esports tools, ability to have staggered starts in the stages with the cars live, etc. There's really a lot to push in this genre that it won't even be all covered in the next iteration of DiRT Rally, if there's one. I think one of the things they should definitely do when designing DR3, is to double the amount of stages like WRC did. If we have 2 long distant routes, that will be enough for a lot of variety.

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - Seasons 3 & 4

    Charge more for them. If a content is good, it doesn't need to be 3.5€. I'm sure a lot of people would pay 15 or 20€ for a rally location if it's well crafted. You dont need to release everything at the same pace. It would need to have more than just 1 route though. Would it be as expensive to produce new stages for existing locations? Because im sure people would be ok with that. No matter what, you already have a pretty solid content base for DiRT Rally 3. More stages per rally would just be a wonder.

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - Seasons 3 & 4

    We're slowly getting close to that beautiful lineup 😄 The first 4 cars of that lineup are already present (Lancer Evo VI instead of the VII). I'd only ask for the Xsara, anything else is a bonus for me 😄 Can't wait to see a picture of the 206 with DR2's graphics. And yes, I was also expecting a new rally location instead of the RX track in S3. I was actually expecting Corsica to make an appearance, more than Portugal or San Remo, and for that I'm disappointed. I think once again the RX content is overkilling it, but whatever. It was somewhat expected. But I'm really happy to see the 206 finally coming back home after a long time away. Plus it's always nice to see Greece and Finland making a return. We'll have 12 rallies by the end of season 3, which is what we all requested back in DR1. So in that term, I think we're set! I will however welcome and pay for any other rally content that may come after season 4, if there's any. Say Portugal, Corsica, San Remo, Kenya, or extra stages for current rallies. The same applies to the cars like the Xsara, Impreza 1997-1999 and any others from that spectre. Like many others, I'll also pass on Season 4, as RX doesn't interest me at all. You can be sure Season 3 is a buy though. There are cars that were hinted with sound recordings for DR2.0 (Impreza 97 and Legacy) that still have not been announced, which leads me to think Season 5 is a possibility and will be the final season. PS: Please let us mod the liveries for these 2000s cars! It's as much important as bringing the cars themselves.
  24. Algunos de los coches ya estan en el juego, tal como el rally de Monte Carlo.
