    DiRT Rally 2.0 - Seasons 3 & 4

    Still no news on purchase availability? Everyday I check the Steam store and find nothing.

    Will the new seasons be released on the very August 27th? Or we will be able to purchase earlier? I wish there was more classic content, and by classic I mean older than 1980. Don't see Codies adding more stuff when the game turns one year old.

    Pikes Peak DLC!

    I would gladly pay it if there was a decent roster of cars (like DiRT 1) and obviously the three variants of the track; gravel, hybrid and tarmac. Sadly, with Polphony holding the rights to the race we won't see Codies doing Pikes Peak for a long while, if ever.

    The DiRT Rally version is shorter? Never noticed that. I always assumed it was the full lenght. I could more or less recognize the same turns and places in both games.

    There is a mod for BeamNG.drive which recreates Pikes Peak, in both full gravel and full tarmac configurations. It's not as good as DiRT Rally IMHO, but it's something.

    I know, but without the option of Pikes Peak available, bringing back hillclimb would necessarily mean creating a new track from zero. I think all of us would rather see that time and effort dedicated into making new rally stages. Hillclimb is an awesome discipline among motorsports, but let's be honest, Pikes Peak aside, it's not very well known globally compared to rallying or rallycross. If Codies didn't have the chance to license Pikes Peak for the original DiRT Rally, I doubt they would have even bothered with hillclimb at all.

    Pikes Peak is entirely out of realm for Codemasters as the race's videogame rights are currently owned by Polphony (Gran Turismo) and will be for another 7 years, I think.

    Season 3 information?

    I'm going to be the odd one and wish for a Saab 96, so the (unfairly unloved) H1 FWD class can get up to four cars.

    I don't want this talent-less dude to destroy any more valuable classic rally cars. Keep any Lancia far away from him, please. So glad DiRT got rid of him. DiRT 2 and 3 hold good memories but certainly haven't aged well. Showdown was a massive, buggy flop.

    I mean, I know rallycross is one of the few types of motorsport were contact is allowed, but precisely due to that I suppose cars must get repaired and washed very, very frequently. Especially if you have tons of sponsors displayed. In this game your car is only washed if you repair it, and you can repair it only if you have any sort of damage. AI cars just go into racing regardless of their damage / dirt. It's a bit annoying.
  12. Beating the Lancias is hard, especially if you drive an RS200. With that car and 90% of difficulty I always have some of the longest race times. This without any sort of tuning, though. I'm pretty sure with the right settings any car can be more competitive but I'm clueless about doing that. I wish there was a workshop for car settings.

    Am I the only one bothered by how the AI RX cars aren't either washed or repaired between races? A few updates ago it was said that they were being washed between races, but it doesn't seem to be the case for me, at least on Group B RX. VR is the most superflous thing ever. I'm so tired of elitist people saying on the comments of everything "NO VR NO BUY LOL". Meanwhile my gaming PC is turning 4 years old, starting to show its age (Can't play DR2.0 fully maxed out) but I can't afford a full replacement right now. Can't even afford a wheel.

    Playing with the Group B RX is fun. The Lancia is very hard to beat at the highest difficulty setting.

    DS21, RS200 and Stratos đź’“ Some of my favourites. There's much more to rally cars than just Imprezas and Fiestas.

    Fake as hell. Only cars from 2001 and 1997? Come on...
  17. The Germany stages have been like that since release.
  18. Wales has broken replay cameras too. They don't focus on the car properly. Very annoying. I play on the Steam version.

    DS 21 engine sound too loud?

    Probably an irrelevant comment but I love this car so much. I knew it was used in rallying, but never expected it to make its way into a rally game. Driving it is so much fun, even if it's so ridiculously slow compared to the other two cars in its class. We need at least one more historic FWD (Saab 96) to make a four car class. I'm glad this game is not all about Subaru or Ford.
  20. Germany replay cameras are still broken on Steam version.
  21. Little remainder that the Germany replay cameras are still broken. The trackside cameras that follow the car doing a circular motion have their aim wrong. You see a lot of sky, and little car / ground.

    The Escort MKII model used until D4 was constantly inherited between games. I think it originally dates from CMR: DiRT 2, which is now a ten year old game and the first DiRT game I played. Near the end you played a McRae tribute championship with all the ingame stars plus other drivers like Valentino Rossi, all in MKII's. It was a fun game ten years ago, but today I'm glad we have the more focused "Rally" series, more worthy of Colin's legacy. I barely ever used that car in any games, but I'm glad they are using the original aesthetics now.
  23. I think it's supposed to simulate light cleaning of the windshield from things like bugs, dust, etc.
