  1. DR1 was a blast to me. DR2 is awesome. So adding the blast DR1 locations into the awesome DR2 lets us to have a damn blast awesome game. So, I’m happy.

    Just add Pikes peak mode, the Hyundai and the mini RX, the f2000 cars and I can die quietly.

    Indeed, after many weeks of playing 🤓

    The last Group B RX daily at Catalunya was a remarkable one for me. I knew that I had no idea where the joker lap entry would be on this circuit so I thought I'd need a few practice laps to figure that out. Klicked 'start' by mistake. Ok, then I needed to look out for the entry during the run, but I was too focused and I completely forgot. As I crossed the finish line I unlocked the 'Clown Car' achievement and I couldn't understand how this is possible. I checked the circuit in TT mode to at least try to understand what happened and I realised that I had done joker laps every single lap. 

    I think at this point Tommy Lee Jones is inevitable.

  3. What a brilliant weekend. 

    We have a french expression saying : « j’ai pris un pied monstre » which means something like - it was f*****g brilliant 😃

    So happy for Andreas, he deserves it.

    Doran style may be too agressive for that kind of tracks.

    Sad for Chicherit (cocoricooo ! 🇫🇷). I have the feeling that there is always something to the GCK team to avoid them from a win.

    Although i am not really a fan of the PS3 and PS4 gen WRC games, the career mode seems to be interesting developed and I think parts of it can be well implemented in the DiRT series, but possible even better in the DiRT series, because you not forced to the WRC scheduele and have next to rally also rallycross. 

    Managing a team and driver career

    I understand that it is forced you need to manage a team as well in WRC8, but in real life that is a lot of times not the case. I think it would be better you would have the option to also manage a team. But a lot of drivers have a sponsor package and pay a seat for a championship or event. F.e. Anton Marklund has a family team, but drives for GCK.

    Choosing which events your participate in. 
    I think this is a good feature, but for example if i choose to a full ERX Supercars, I should also be able to do a few one off WRX events or a local event or a rally championship. But I shouldn't be able to do the Höljes WRX events, because than also the ERX event takes place at Höljes. Also the amount of events you participate in depends on regulations and on the amount of sponsorship package.

    Money / Sponsorship
    There is no talk about it how it works.

    But for DiRT I would imagine you can sign with sponsors and the possible maximum amount they want to sponsor is 850.000

    if you rent a team/car than (depending which team/car) f.e.
    the costs for an EuroRX event = 100.000
    the costs for an WorldRX event = 125.000

    It is not possible to do the full WRX season, because that costs are to high = 1.125.000, and you can only do 6 events.
    So instead you do a full EuroRX (6x100.000 = 600.000) and two WRX events (2x125.000) and have 8 events for the season planned. You can also invest money in testing/sponsor days to upgrade the car and stuff. 

    Also in this case the livery editor will get a good valuable position again. It can go in different ways. If you have Red Bull as main sponsor, there will be certain set of location where the sponsor logos will be displayed, but with alternatives. Also you can than choose f.e. if the Red Bull stickers need to have a chrome, glossy or matte effect. The base of the car still can have different lay-outs and colors as well. Becuase 

    Maybe during the season you will get an invitation for a GroupB historic rallycross event and maybe a sponsor gives extra money to enter in a local event. Or maybe get a call te replace a injured WRX driver (f.e. what Joni Wiman did for Niclas Grönholm).

    ofcourse you can do a lot of paremeters. If you rent a Hansen Peugeot, than maybe a seasons costs double or triple compared if you rent the older less competive Ford Fiesta from the less experienced Xite Racing team. Basically you have two parameters here for a team (A = experienced top team / E = beginner team) and for the car (A = Car well mainted and latest upgrades / E = Older car with no upgrades. Under it there are more parameter

    But maybe also can go for the option to manage a team. You buy a older Polo or Fiesta for 300.000 euro. Than the costs for the events are lower, but you also need to repair the car costs and do maintenance or buy upgrades. You start probably as an E team and with a E car, but ofcourse this will be more upgraded (what already happened in D4 and DR2), but when upgraded also results in extra costs a season (because experienced team or upgrades costs money). So maybe in the beginning the salary is just 100.000 a season, but when it is a top team, maybe it costs 500.000 a year, next to the investments for training and stuff and hiring more people.

    I vote @JorritVD for President.

    Actually, the pictures they use on facebook and other media are done with a photo mod. (I don't talk about the community pictures).

    I mean, the following one can't be done via the replay mode only.

    Lâimage contient peut-être : voiture et plein air

    I still can't understand why they forgot to put a photo mod. I love DR 2 and I am always saying it everytime I can, but this is a mistake IMO.

    I know PJ said few times that it was not a high priority for the dev. But guys, come on' !

    So @PJTierney, how do you guys are able to produce these kind of angle/pictures?

    been saying this for a long while. its not just for ingame. social media side is where this will shine and bring many people to the game. the better we can take pics the better we can show the game. its worth making the effort to bring this to the game. people modded it already on pc like i said they would in a short period of time. so a professional studio who makes the game really should have this in.

  7. hey. 

    [Dream machine : ON] I did this little edit’ because I would love to have Andrew Coley as commentator on my wild Dirt Rally 2.0 - World RX sessions ! 

    I know that some part are not 100% reflecting Andrew's commentary but it's hard to force the game to do it 😄

    I hope you will find this funny.

    Cheers Andrew and the RX community!

    The tracks do change every year, but so do the drivers and cars, and the drivers and cars we have in game are based on the 2018 season, so to leave the 2018 season unfinished would be a massive shame in my view

    Massive shame for the "official RX game". Codemasters cannot produce a such effort to make the RX side of the game so good, intense and enjoyable and then leave it without the support it deserves as an official game. I am confident for the next seasons. 🤘

    Maybe the Rally die-hard fans will go nuts indeed, but its quite logical that these 6 tracks it will be (also known than three of the four tracks are basically already in the F1 games).

     

    I am still secretly hoping a complete dedicated and separated RX game of the Dirt franchise. Some king of "Dirt RX".

    That would be amazing and could stop Rally die-hard fans that don't like these RX additions in Dirt Rally. But I think it won't be a good money plan for Codemasters.

    As a RX and Rally die-hard fans, I'm ok to pay for two separed games ! 😄

    would like to see the Clio in DR2 at some point actually, along with the Skoda. and the i20 obviously. 

    also, 2019 liveries!

    Dude, you're right. We really need these 2019 liveries and cars. I'm ready to pay a lot for them. :classic_biggrin:
