    Idea WRC Ultimate rallyteam explained

    Yep sounds like a good idea. We could do online trading between each player and also we could earn money when people rank up to spend in a shop which sells liveries, helmets, engine parts and exhaust parts etc. Yep that is the idea behind it, I think it will make the gameplay longer after all, and you will create something (kind of character) that's personal for you = more value worth = more worth to buy a DLC or a upgrade = more turnover for Codemasters = more games!  And beside that u don't really need the WRC license for it! As long as u got the license to use the WRC rallycars ( as they had in D3) But an ERC ( European Rally Championship) would be cool! :D

    Rally America 2014 Schedule

    The only thing that I followed from Rally America was the serie Launch Controle made by Subaru: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL1MTbRON4T882S-XEFu3StytlAFShrF2M Amazing inside view in the build and driving a rally and rallycross car! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hGdK9p5F7fM&list=PL1MTbRON4T882S-XEFu3StytlAFShrF2M&feature=share

    DiRT Forum Competition - The Setup

    Wow that's awesome, that's a few rally drivers we have on the forums now, we'll be able to set up our own real world event at this rate! Yes that would be very cool. but for now virtual rallying will have to do. I can't wait till my V8 rally car is ready. I really miss rallying and New Zealand is such an awesome place to rally, we have a really big rally community over here. I would love to go over and check out some of the European rallies. They look real fun. Would be awesome to see some of your pictures/videos if you have any sometime Want me to make a new Topic related to real rally stages/ pictures? ;-) Got plenty onbaords, pacenotes, routebooks from all the Dutch Rallies and Also some WRC and ERC rallies :D

    @couger1981 ,@justbiglee @KickUp Its so annoying,...>-) :| Would love to know if they use or feedback, or ideas ( for example the WRC ultimate rallyteam idea )    :\"> I am giving feedback from December 2011 for the new game, and all i get as answer is: "We can't say anything yet,... we would love to show what we are doing...." Atleast i do know for sure that they listen to our feedback, small example is the other rallycars at the stage in D3, what we asked for after D2, and the Monte Carlo DLC... those where amazing! But a confirmation would be nice..... :D   I can confirm that I am reading this thread, twitter, comments in other forums and articles that mention DiRT. The majority of your wishes and ideas align very well with the game I want to make for you all. Of course budget constraints, licensing, time and resource will mean that we can only do so much but I think it is fair to say that you will thoroughly enjoy what we make. Please remember that I came to work at Codemasters because I loved playing Colin McRae 1, 2 & 3 as a fan. I have spent my entire career working on Rally games. I want to create the best rally game ever made and I don't feel that I have achieved that yet. Getting the chance to compete as a codriver has opened my eyes to aspects of the sport that I took for granted before. Getting @jontucker to join the studio has given us amazing insight into the vehicle dynamics and handling and I am confident we are on the right track. Keep your ideas and wishes coming. We are listening!  ;) Thanks for your comment Paul! Really appreciate it! And don't worry we will keep the wishes and ideas rolling ;-) The fact that the forum is back online is a good step in the right direction! :D

    DiRT Forum Competition - The Setup

    Great Idea Lee!!! :D 1) Would you like to take part in such a thing? - Yes! :D 2) Which DiRT games do you have? (let me know what platform just in case we decide to do some rallycross/live mp events) - PC , perhaps with the new Codemasters Rally game ;-) ? Use to play the old CMR games at the PlayStation 1 and PlayStation 2, CMR04, 2005 at the PC, D1,D2,D3 at the Xbox 360. Have to mention that I sold the 360 ;-) but willing to buy it again for the PC  3) What shall we call it? I was thinking DRC (DiRT Rally Championship) - "DiRT Rally Championship" sounds good!

    Idea WRC Ultimate rallyteam explained

    Some old idea what I would like to discuss is the trading market, That's a big part of the game idea,... Does anyone has thought about the trading market? How should we use it? Do we need an option to sell the cars that u made? or only sell the parts of a rallycar? Gearbox engine, body parts etc etc. And what do u think about the idea if u damaged ur car ( for example damaged your front bumper) that u have to buy a new one in the trade market? or that u buy like 4 bumpers and got spares with u while a rally event? This will make the game beside rallying also more technical and more into "management" what do you think about that?

    Idea WRC Ultimate rallyteam explained

    Not really busy ;-) just saved some idea's on paper, and next week I got a loooong flight down under so I got a lot of spare time to thing about new idea's options for an awesome rally game! And about the pacenote editor, I think in combination with a recce option, that would be the best way to use it! and I really agree with it that they are a big factor in rallying at higher levels,... infact if my co-driver makes a mistake,.. that could cost me my car if I crash badly,... In a rally I trust more then 120% at my co-drivers notes!

    Idea WRC Ultimate rallyteam explained

    It doesn't really matter what order, if u would like to driver 5 seasons a R2 and save all your money/credits to buy a WRC u should do that. ;-) that's what will make the career so awesome, everyone can do what they would love to do in their career! :D Build 4 R2's and drive it to the maximum, so if u crash one very badly u still can go on with the 3 other spares,..

    Ohh yhea i really loved the kitcars! And ofcourse the S1600's still my favorite cars! And to be honestly... I am currently trying to buy a Peugeot 106 Maxi S1600 ;) but still cost around 50.000 euro.... Little bit out of my budget sadly
  14. MartijnvH

    What was your last purchase

    Does gas or petrol also count? :-S (:|
  15. MartijnvH

    What do you drive?

    Well this is my rallycar that I drive: Furthermore I drive a Peugeot 206 hdi but also use that car as recce car ;-)

    "Next" DiRT game wishlist!

    They had both, count down lights and a green flag guy ;-) But in real there is a count down light , or a guy that count down with his hands ;-) Can't remember seeing a flag guy he might be behind the barriers at the start line? That guy in the right has the green flag ;-)

    @gfRally you are right and its good to be the devils advocate and make us see the other side. But perhaps we are looking in the wrong direction? For example F1 isn't that popular in the USA as here in Europe and Arabic and Asia, (Mostly all Manufactures and sponsoring are from Europe, Asia or Arabic) But still the game was quiet extensive like there where ton of set-ups from the car, the looks from the tracks, authentic F1 rules etc etc etc.... and still the sales from the game where good! They didn't focused at the USA right? So why would a real authentic rally game not sell in Europe Arabic South America, Asia?  ( Mentioning the spectators at WRC Argentina, Dakar, rallies in Arabia (united emirates))   I think u should keep the rally game authentic and focus at the rally and rallycross aspect. With Ken Block and many other stars compete in Rallycross in the USA and Europe I think its only a matter of time and in the USA will buy it. And I think u have to be honest with me, Europe, Asia and Arabia are more in to rally then the USA, because of all the European/Asian brands; ( VW, Citroen, Toyota, Mitsubishi, Subaru, Skoda, Peugeot, M-Sport (Not or less supported by Ford), are putting a lot money in the sport ( not to mention the sponsoring from Arabia, Russia and Scandinavian)) are putting a lot of money in it! Personally I only think that Rallycross can make it in the USA, because its short and u can watch all the action as a circuit I do not think that rallysport will ever get that popular in the USA as it is in Europe, Asia and Arabic. Just because of the thought from an American, U cant see all what happens at a rally stage, as for NASCAR u can see all, ( on TV or in the stadion) I think that is the biggest blockade. That's also why we should focus at the European market instead of the USA. but that's my opinion.

    how would you want it to play though? Perhaps as said before we can combine it with making your own pacenotes, that will make the rally game more authentic, I can understand that some people like the pacenotes made by Nicky Grist / Paul Coleman/ Codemasters , so that should be the basic and people are able to skip the Recce part and continue,  But if u would like to make your own pacenotes, then u have to do the recce, in a normal car, ( as said before by @Benniz ) Just an Evo X or a Volvo or a normal 206, and with a maximum speed of 80 km/u and maximum 2 times each stage I think this is a great idea, because almost every driver has different pacenotes, for example some drivers use for a corner what they cant "cut" the line : "Don't cut" , other drivers use fictional word for it like "Sek"or only mention when to cut. I think if u created once ur "pacenotes" for a stage u should be able to save it, so the next time u drive that rally u can load your own pacenotes, Ofcourse with different dynamic weather conditions, and starting position u should ajust your pacenotes, but that's up to the driver what he would like. What do you think from it guys? I think this will make the rally game more authentic and let people who don't know that much about rally and still play the game know what to do with the information from your co-driver. Result --> everyone will drive faster. But as I mention before too, I think for the next game the most important things are: Dynamic weather condition, Authentic rally rules, and Changing stage conditions.  PS> Just see Recce as an Free practice / qualification in the F1 games, U don't have to do it,.. but if u do it will give u a great advance in the race!
