  1. 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 😉

    Track Limits in DiRT World Series

    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.
  6. You can buy stuff individually.
  7. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.

    Upcoming dash cam?

    Hahaha damn Jake i feel for you. I hope with the dashcam update you can finally play properly, as you've been hitting this button for a long time. You deserve it. Someone else would've already given up either on the topic or on the game, so kudos to you tough warrior. 😄
  14. DiRT Rally 1: 6 rallies, less than 50 cars. People cried for paid DLC to expand it further. DiRT Rally 2.0: 6 rallies with over 50 cars at launch. 4 paid seasons of good DLC (in my perspective ofc), unfortunately more RX than i wished for but it's alright, and some people are losing their minds. This has been said countless times by various players: this is the best rally game we have to date, and right now we have the possibility of running a full championship calendar in the DiRT Rally series. Don't put that in the bin. S3 rally content is estimated @ 17€, not 30. It's still a bargain, despite the stages being imported from DR1, there's the 206 coming in after so many years absent, plus the returning stages have had stage degradation implemented, and some texture work among a few other things that require time and manpower to work on. Do not overlook the returning rallies are just a mere recycle. These stages are run every year on WRC (well except for Greece), so it is expectable for these stages to keep returning to rallies. Not even WRC8 is able to replicate Finland, and it's the official IP. The community got what it asked for, and they have been transparent from day one regarding Deluxe Edition coverage. It was very explicit that D+ events were for Deluxe Edition owners only, and that it would include only Season 1 and Season 2. It was written way before the game released, only for those who wanted to read it.
  15. You guys have to consider the amount of content being brought. Many of you are just looking at the rally content, in which if you only want to purchase that, it'll be around 17€. I'm sure if both seasons were rally-only content, noone would be complaining this much. Take the RX pricing out of equation and things get more bearable. In my opinion the pricing is right and just, given the amount of content coming in these 2 seasons. There's no way 20 dollars would pay off two seasons, plus DLC in other games are quite more expensive than this (take Assetto Corsa and Forza Horizon 4 for an instance) in terms of content per dollar and/or hour/$. Do not forget from where the DiRT Rally spin-off genre came from, and the current circunstances with all the individual brand licensing bs this studio has to deal. This is not a FIA supported title by no means. It is a title supported by us, to us.
  16. Oh wait you actually mean DiRT Rally 1. Well i guess the bar has to be in the middle then.
  17. 1.0, however some people may adjust it lower or higher depending on their screen and personal preference.

    2001 Focus and Subaru

    Good to see you back after quite a long time. I wish i could even stand before any of those cars. So far i've only standed before an Evo 6 with Marlboro livery, which is probably my favourite car so I cant complain.

    Head to Head would be great but it has been mentioned by me and a few others, as well as it would require Super Special stages to be modeled and implemented. Unfortunately i dont think that's it, but it would be epic to have that. They do have the Super Special stages from DiRT3 which they can use though.

    DiRT Rally 2.0: Livery request topic

    1. ------------- - SEASON: 2001-2002 - CHAMPIONSHIP / EVENT: WRC - CLASS: 2000cc - CAR: Peugeot 206 - TEAM: Peugeot - DRIVER / CO-DRIVER: Marcus Gronholm / Richard Burns / Harri Rovanpera / Didier Auriol / Gilles Panizzi - IMAGE: - OTHER: Main brands are licensed within the game already, which makes it easier to get the livery done. Probably the most iconic livery in the 206 if we exclude the white one with the blue Peugeot lion logo. 2. ------------- - SEASON: 1999-2002 - CHAMPIONSHIP / EVENT: WRC - CLASS: 2000cc - CAR: Ford Focus 2001 - TEAM: Ford - DRIVER / CO-DRIVER: Colin McRae / Carlos Sainz / Thomas Radstrom / Petter Solberg - IMAGE: (1999) (2000) (2001) (2002) - OTHER: Main sponsors are not licensed within the game (that being Martini Racing (we only need the stripes though, replace martini logos with Ford like in Colin McRae Rally 3) and Telefonica/Movistar). Apparently it's hard to license the martini stripes for some reason, not so sure about the telecoms. I'm interested towards 2000 in the first place. But anyone of those that come will make me happy. 1999 and 2000 appeared in Colin McRae Rally 2.0, whereas the 2002 was Colin McRae Rally 3 main car. 3. ------------- - SEASON: 1999-2000 - CHAMPIONSHIP / EVENT: WRC - CLASS: Group A - CAR: Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VI - TEAM: Mitsubishi - DRIVER / CO-DRIVER: Tommi Makinen - IMAGE: - OTHER: It might be easy to actually reach to Tommi Makinen during Wales Rally GB this year, as hes the team principal of Toyota GR, and see if he's keen to have his name starred in the game. Since Marlboro can't be advertised I'm not dropping the marlboro livery of 1999 (which was the first official one). So instead I'm leaving here the Tommi livery from 2000, which also makes an appearance in Colin McRae Rally 2.0. If there's a chance to get the Marlboro livery but with black stripes instead, i'd take that as well. Ralliart is defunct since 2010 I think, so I'm not sure how licensing works with non-existent brands. Btw the Marlboro censored stripes version is this one, it was used in several 1999 WRC events:

    It's a shame this Subaru version looks so fat lol. It's nice looking but it's so damn fat, the wheels almost disappear under all that massive bodywork.

    The return of Gymkhana with Ken Block. Can't wait to see everyone losing their minds.

    This is also serves as some good marketing for DR2.0. Let's say DR1 freebie will serve as a test for those who wanted to try it but not hard enough to purchase it. If they like it good enough, they might come to 2.0, so overall it's good. As for the 1.8 surprise, of course it has to be the 2001 Xsara

    The DiRT Roadbook

    I'd also append this suggestion to have their statistic system from WRC8, where it shows statistic for everything after a full event such as wear % per stage with graphs etc.
  25. Working on a new engine, even if taking some things off the old EGO, takes a lot of time and resources. The only way to make this viable would be to have a core team working on it full time in the background. A new engine would be amazing, as it would lift many of these limitations and would be better prepared for modern racing, specially if it's focused on simulation. But this is something that requires thorough planning and support. The whole CM community would be thrilled to hear that. Maybe for next generation consoles and gaming it wouldn't be a bad idea to star a new engine, or maybe that's what's being done already 🙂
