    I dont know how some people were actually expecting the DLCs to be free. The amount of work put into the remastered locations is bigger than people think. They have the layout already, but if you look at it, much of it is new (props, vegetation, track surface degradation), not to mention the core updates like physics, graphics and lighting which make things more interesting.

    This happened. I had a dream tonight, where somehow i was in Codemasters HQ in a room with the DiRT Team. The room looked more like one of my college's classrooms than a studio (well probably because it was a dream and i dont miss college), and I could see about 20 people in there in their desks, and then Ross Gowing and someone else about the same age who you could tell they had a senior role as well in the game. I could see the disappointment and tireness in all of their faces. We talked about the review ********* in Steam, what could be done, what couldn't be done, what was going to be done and when I said "dont even think about doing a DiRT5, because if you do that now you (Codemasters) are shooting your feet and digging your own graves. Take the time and work in DR2.0 to make it right, otherwise people will lose the confidence in you for good", Gowing replied with a face like if he had his hands tied "we dont decide that", and I had the feeling such game was indeed already in the works. While I had a marvel of speaking with him in my deep limbo, i didn't really like seeing the frustration stamped on those faces lol. To some extent, it probably might be true, it's not hard to figure it out. People who have worked hard and see a game having one the worst rocky starts ever. Because let's not forget we are also talking about real people here, regardless if we are paying for a product or not. I'm not trying to excuse anyone with this, but I believe we all can take this game to good port, and so far it's been going in that direction.

    Unfortunately i think it's the latter. I'm basing myself on the steamdb estimated sales, which besides being inaccurate and presenting an interval between 50K-100K, it's still pretty low. By this time it should be in the 150K-200K imo. The low review score on Steam is surely affecting the sales a lot, it's "Mixed" right now, sitting at 64%. It went up from 62% in the past few days ever since the FFB patch, but it's still sitting behind DiRT4 (65%), which is absurd. Seriously, if you guys are enjoying the game and see any future for it and you haven't dropped a review yet, please do. This is "our" game after all. https://store.steampowered.com/recommended/recommendgame/690790 I wouldn't like to see this game die so quickly.

    This is bad news lol. But hopefully it means more money cashing in.

    The championship resets are a nuisance, but they've been happening a lot less now. Besides, you may lose the current championship progress but theres no other losses (like credits, league demotion, etc). But yes, for one that sees this happen it's a nuisance. I had it happen to myself in the first weeks but then it stopped completely. On the other hand, I found the audio cuts to become more frequent for me.

    Another team, i hope it gets sorted too 🙂 specially the lighting problems mentioned in #1 bug. Once we get those 2 issues fixed, plus the audio cut-outs, i think the game is set for good. These are the 3 major problems right now and everything else can be fixed meanwhile in a more chilled manner.

    Yes
  8. Indeed, this is what I would like to see, despite wishing for Portugal and Corsica to join the calendar. Another long course (like they've done with the current stages) would be just fine. That's why I was wondering wether they took the chance to photograph that 2nd stage while they travelled to Argentina and the other locations. Otherwise it's gonna cost a lot more due to flight tickets etc. There is also the option of using some DiRT 3 stages as a base for work, since many were modeled based on real parts of stages. So it'd be cheaper than having to fly to those locations to make a reconnaissance. I'm not saying "use DiRT3" stages, as those were larger and lack some depth. But it can be used as a reference map to model it in DR2.0 from scratch, but even the environment parts like the mountains in the distance and overall terrain around the track could be imported rather than making everything from scratch. What's really important is the track's depth and quality. Apparently DiRT3 only has 5 rallies: Finland, Kenya, Michigan, Norway and Monte Carlo. So it wouldn't be much of use, perhaps except for Kenya but the stages I've seen seem to be extremely small (sprints are around 2 minutes). Then it'd be a matter of using the assets already available for said rallies. Would make the whole process faster imo, (aside from Germany and Argentina).
  9. Considering the gap between February 26th (game's release date) and the end of Season 2 (late August), I suppose there would've been enough time for a paralel team to work on a new rally for Season 3 to pair with Finland and Greece. Either that or in Season 4.

    The stages are a bit smaller, I think they are even the smallest in DR1, not to mention there's a lot of straights. That's why I wish there would be an extra long stage in the vineyards to complement it.

    I actually find the colors attractive. Doesn't mean it's arcadey. I prefer those colors than the ones washed out in previous Grids, makes everything more fun.
  12. If that proves to be right, there goes the 2 extra locations we were predicting and so does the chance for "new rallies" since the slots available would be for Greece and Finland.
  13. 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 😉

    Watching that trailer immediately reminded me of this.

    #NoS2000NoBuy Looks good though.

    This is one of the very few moments I wish that comment was toxic and full of sarcasm.

    I can smell a patch is in bound soon 🙂
  19. please no (landrush). If it's for that, let that Mexico flag be just that, a flag 😄 I'd like to have Mexico rally but personally i have to give Corsica and Portugal the "priority", for historical reasons.

    Oh yeah, I was actually meaning that for Rally not Rallycross @CMMcBabe But I suppose that'd be the same.
  21. Not really snobby as I can still abuse this with fast downshifting and this has happened to me. I'm using manual sequential as well. This was one of the problems with DR1 as well, and used to abuse the braking capabilities of the car. It's a relevant bug if we want to ensure fairness in a competitive environment.
