    Welcome Back

    @JonTucker The Dutch tarmac roads are also amazing instead of the forest ;-) *hint hint* But I will come over to visit the Codies HQ and some nice rally this or next year for sure! Probably drive a nice forest rally with the Peugeot 206 RC in 2015 ;-) Because we have to change the budget a little bit after some affairs with tree's broken gearbox and engine problems  :D

    "Next" DiRT game wishlist!

    I have to agree with this, Perhaps a small playground area with some technical stage in it, or perhaps better create your own playground / test area? As for rallying, WRC teams usually have some test days before and after a rally, they use part of an official stage or a location where they can test different set-ups, for example in Spain they test for Mexico, in Finland they do a other gravel test. in france a tarmac test, In the CMR 05 game there where a few "mini" test games to upgrade your engine and stuff it was a kind of playground/ test track... Would love to see something like that again, to upgrade your rally car, or test a new set-up, tires, exhaust, dampers etc etc.., Same can be done for RX only they usually test on the same race tracks they race on, so that would be a lot easier. But some mini "test/upgrade" games at a small technical playground at different locations would be awesome! What do u think @tbtstt and @CarBoyCam ?

    Idea WRC Ultimate rallyteam explained

    Glad you guys like the idea! Lets keep this rolling! I think the idea of building your own rally/ rallycross team is awesome! u can get dedicated to your own car brand or beloved rally car and compete with it online! Would love to make two Peugeot 207 S2000's and turn one in gravel spec and one in tarmac and compete with it in an ERC mode against other gamers! What kind off add-ons would u like to see to this idea? And what kind of rally/rallycars would you like to adjust/build?

    WRC 2014 Round 4 - Rally de Portugal

    I think it will be a strange rally, with lots of water instead of dust! ( check the recce photo's) But I will guess: 1 Ogier 2 Ostberg 3 Latvala 4 Neuville 5 Tänak  Hopefully Neuville can make it to the podium!!

    "Next" DiRT game wishlist!

    I do agree with you, and as rally driver I would love to see that! But I think for most of the casual gamers this isn't interesting, I think the do like the challenge of a realistic and real rallying, but I think they want to start with just jump in and drive ( Like the game Forza?). I think the key in a new rally game is that people need to choose if they want full SIM or want to jump in? ofcourse a full sim will get more and better rewards etc  In fact one thing is really important to me about the SIM factor; And that's if its a jump in or sim game, the rules of the rally sport need to be accurate! For example: - Service after 2 or 3 stages - Rally takes 13-21 stages - A specific service time, - Accurate time penalties - Real Start ( not just a guy waving a green flag or so) etc.. etc.. Do you guys agree?

    Welcome to the forum André! I think every one has mostly the same ideas and are on the same level, but my wishlist / idea for a new game mode is my biggest wishlist it is on my thread: http://forums.codemasters.com/discussion/43/idea-wrc-ultimate-rallyteam-explained#latest Furthermore I think Codemasters did a great job on the rally cars in all the CMR and Dirt games! Just wondering so bad what they are planning/ making inside the Codies HQ!!!

    Idea WRC Ultimate rallyteam explained

    Overview [A short paragraph on what the game is] The gamemode is a part of a Codemasters Rally/ Rallycross game. I have worked it our for the rally part, but u can do the same for the rallycross part! In the game mode you get the opportunity to manage / create / drive your own rally team. You start your online and offline career with a small low budget rallycar. The player can chose through upgrades on the car what class/division he will drive. Small example, If u start with a Peugeot 205 u can chose to follow the building rules from the Peugeot 205 cup to compete with the cup ( some parts are required on the car), or buy specific group A parts what means that u will drive in the Group A class (I will explain the classes later) In other words, the player get his own freedom to stay and go where he wants. By gaining money from sponsors (achieving sponsor goals) , trading rally parts and winning rallies, cups and championships (online and offline) the player can upgrade his rallycar and team. The idea is to create a big online in game competition. Where people can compete each other. You can split the big competition in a few categories: - Some different brand cups/challenge - National championship - European Championship - WRC (Fase1 the start) In my opinion the game should start with the Great Britain National Championship with 10 big rallies. In that case Codemasters can start focusing at one “competition” (Fase2 upgrade) Later Codemasters can add 11 other National championships ( with each championship having around 10 rallies). Where people can commit to for example a Belgium, France, The Netherlands, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Bulgaria Poland, Germany, Austria, Czech, Romania , Sweden, Finland cup or National Championship. Each country got his own speciality (Fase3 goal) The ultimate goal is to create from the 12 national championships, 1 big European Championship with a rally from each country. In this competition only the best players will drive. With the best cars. In other words u need to get to the top and win the European championship. Why should we make this?: - Longer game/career mode experience = retain gamers longer at a Codemasters game - Gamers create a personal “character/ team” that they admire (What means people will easier invest small amount of money in it = more sales volume) - A new game mode what could put the options “offline and online” together - Difference from other rally/ racing games what makes it unique in its experience - A game/ gamemode where Codemasters can build on! Game Structure [This section would contain the following headers - What we need here is 3 or 4 bulletpoints for each header] Rallycars - Feature cars from Group N, Group A, S1600, and S2000 classes - It will be possible to upgrade some cars through the classes - The player can choose what class he will drive by up- or degrading the car specs - Rare cars from the WRC, Group B could also be made available Parts - Engine parts and gearbox, ( for example to upgrade your engine) - Body parts ( front/ rear bumpers , doors, brakes, wheels ) - Tires ( gravel, tarmac, snow in the compound soft, medium, hard) - It’s possible to upgrade your car with it, or trade the item with other players Mechanics - Feature different Mechanics from amateur to professional. - The better the mechanic the faster he solves a problem or repaired stuff. - The player start with a regular mechanic team and can upgrade them - Mechanics are needed to service in rallies and upgrade your rally car Team Managers - Will arrange sponsor contracts for you - Keeps you up-to-date about the weather forecast in rallies - Gives you advice about what setup better is for each rally Co-drivers /Sponsors - Different co-drivers from amateur to professional - Sponsors will give you money and XP to grow in the game - The bigger the sponsor the more requirements needed to complete Progression - Beginning at a small car (low budget cars) - Novice ( medium cup) small group A rally cars - National Group N and Group A rallycars - WRC/ best cars XP - The XP works in a different kind of way. It’s the amount of money u gained to let the gamer choose if he wants to go to another level ( new cup / new car). - By money and XP the player is able to buy new upgrades / spare parts so he can take more risks in the rally ( for the win) against other players online. - Will be earned by winning rallies, Cup and National championships ,achieving sponsor goals Core Mechanics [This section needs to explain the Core Mechanics of the game, first we need to refine a little what these are and how they work I've added some suggestions below as a starting point.] In Game Credits [How do we earn them? What can we spend them on?] - You earn your credits ( money and reputation) by signing deals with sponsors and winning/ achieving your goals in rallies. You can chose to spend the money on : • Your rally team ( Mechanics Team managers) • A Rally car • Upgrades for your Rallycar • Spare parts for your rallycar • Package with random parts/upgrade/cars/Team equipment etc. The reputation can be earned by: • Winning a National cup: Example after you compete in a cup ( against other drivers online) and u won the cup/ challenge over 7 different rallies ( Peugeot 208 cup in France for example) then u will be able to compete in some big events in a professional car, the car isn’t yours but this will give the gamer a change to get better sponsors/ reputation to get easier a better car or more money. Gold [Think of this as a premium currency like in mobile games that you need to purchase - What can we buy with these? What benifits does it have] - People can buy some small gold package with the change of parts/upgrade/cars/Team equipment from the best, it’s much cheaper than buying it apart, but u need luck for it. - People can buy Double XP cards from it - People can buy special parts / rallycars for it. Trading [How does this work? What can players trade? Why should somebody use it?] - Since every player makes their own decisions what car/ in what class he/she will drive And finally.... Stretch Goals [This is a short list of the things you like the game to have if time and money allow it - as a loose rule these strecth goals may not all happen so don't put anything in this section you would really like to keep and again keep it short and simple with a header and a few bullet points.] Stages - Dynamic Weather system option ( what will make the rally stages more unpredictable = more challenge + tactic) - Dynamic rally/ rallycross stages. ( for example if u start as number 1 one the stage the stage is clean, if u start as number 28 then u should see all the racing lines, slippery corners if they are cut. And for example crashed/ destroyed objects Car - Livery create option to create your own rallycar design - An option to buy official liveries from for WRC teams or top drivers. - An option to test/ set-up your rallycar under different conditions - An option to build your own rallycar in the open division, with less restricted rules. Pacenotes - An option to write your own pacenote system and use that in game - And option to adjust the original pacenotes
