    In the timeline there is at July 2015: Rallycross pack Rallycross comes to DiRT Rally with two brand new circuits, a pack of rallycross super cars, a brand new single player career and of course fresh Online Events In the timeline there is at August 2015 Rallycross Expansion Launching alongside the PVP Pack we’re also adding new cars and a new Rallycross circuit to the DiRT Rally roster I would like to see a DiRT World RX as an add- on too i think it will give more value to the game. Looking forward for the information next week from the trip to Holjes by @kickup and @justbiglee :D

    I totally agree with u @gfrally only i do think "if" Codemasters get the licensing and if they have to create the 12 tracks, i do think that there is a must to create more then 6 rallies. But u also have to remind, that Rallycross is a quiet fast gameplay, I mean this is how a rallycross weekend will look like: Each race is four laps (six in semis & final) including a Joker lap. The full event takes part over two days. - 1 a 3 rounds free practice ( Shakedown) - 4 heats ( total is 16 laps) ( 5 rallycross cars each heat) - 2 semi finals ( total is 12 laps) ( 6 rallycross cars each heat) - 1 Final ( total is 6 laps) ( 6 rallycross cars each heat) The track lenght is +/- 1 km that means u will drive around 37 laps = 37 km distance each event.  Thats compare to an rally event almost nothing. I think now at elite level u got around 100 km stage each rally, that makes soon when everything is done (6 rallies in total) 600 km stage km  compare to 444km rallycross stage km ( 12 rounds) I think in that case its not out numbering rally or so, beside that, developing a circuit is much easier then developing a rally stage ;-) in my opinion. Still I think that the best way for Codemasters to handle this situation is: Standard Pack: DiRT Rally ( Like now, little bit hillclimb, little bit rallycross, little bit rally) And if u want u can buy DiRT add-on packs like , FIA World Rallycross , Paris-Dakar, ERC Rally Championship, Hillclimb, If there is a lot of intrest in the add on.

    I would hope its the full package: tracks, cars, sponsors etc. I guess we will have to wait until release day until we know for sure though! The core cars that immediately spring to mind (to me anyway) as essential for a World Rallycross add on are:   Citroen DS3 4x4 T16 Ford Fiesta 4x4 T16 Volkswagen Polo 4x4 T16 Peugeot 208 4x4 T16 Audi S1 4x4 T16 This weekend will be the first time a Beetle supercar (or rather a modern Beetle supercar) has been used in Europe so it may not be a priority? Be cool if it was in game, though if we are talking about just one VW I personally much prefer the Polo.  Thinking about the cars that Codemasters have modeled in the past, there is the MINI Countryman and Evo X. The JRM MINI's have appeared at several World rounds already, so perhaps they might make the cut?  The Isachsen Impreza GR was built to meet World Rallycross specification (Sverre drove it at the Canadian World Rallycross round last year) and, as far as I'm aware, both of the new Impreza GJ rallycross cars (the VT15x) are compliant with World specification, so perhaps they could be potential cars as well? No idea if CM have got any data on the GJ Impreza though.  If they do include the Audi S1, then the Audi A1 isn't radically different, so perhaps a few tweak to the model and the Larsson A1 could be in game too. I am more thinking of , if Codemasters get the World Rallycross license, then they still have to make 9 rallycross tracks, (3 announced already, and the calender got 12 rounds) http://www.fiaworldrallycross.com/ So i doubt if they will get the full license ( because they will have to make 9 more tracks) ,.. that means they wont get all cars i guess. Lets hope that its nonsense what i made up, because i would love to see 12 rallycross tracks and 6 big rallies ( althrough i love to see 8 or 10 rallies in total) Rallycross and rally are very close related to each other, they are like brothers, I think many people underestimate that and many rallydrivers did some rallycross events, even the manufactures ! I think if Codemasters concentrate with DiRT Rally at Rally and rallycross ( and hillclimb) they make a very very good move. Rally is fun and i love it! But i can understand that some people who love to drive sometimes a rally also would like to have some close contact ralling sometimes, and this can be done in rallycross! Rally and rallycross is just brutal!

    DiRTy Gossip

    @gfrally @Rallycameraman ,... what place are mountains? ,... Scandinavia,.. what is next week?,... World RX of Sweden ,.... what was in @justbiglee 's DiRTy book ,... something with a trip aranging a trip to the Höljes hmmm I think this is suspicious, what would Lee have arranged with a rallycross trip in Sweden,... would it be something with Petter Solberg? :O after all he lives close to Sweden and Höljes is close to the boundary of Norway,... Not to mention Petter use to play the rallycross part with his son Oliver in the DiRT 3 game,... in other words Petter is fan of the Codemasters games! :O Would make sence specially because Petter Solberg = Rally, rallycross and Hillclimb,.... = DiRT Rally game.... #DiRTyGossip! Gets me excited!!!

    Back to the Gossip: I also had some hopes that the team would show some Rallycross gameplay at Lydden Hill this weekend, but perhaps it's just not ready yet. Are any of the team members going to do any sound recordings or telemetry on the cars? @KickUp  Here's a question for you then and it's part of the problem that we face internally. If you could have a camera mode thing like a few of suggested or say a rally school are that we could use for lots of things which one would you want?   @justbiglee Rallyschool for sure!

    Idea WRC Ultimate rallyteam explained

    My vision is to give every DiRTy gamer a rallyteam as character for there careermode ( and perhaps online) For example lets start with the Ford Fiesta R2 ( sinds its a basic beginners car) You start your career with an Clean Ford Fiesta R2 , no upgrades, just 1 Mechanic and not that much credits left at your bank account. So you drive the first championship like atm in the career, after finishing at the top 3 u get many credits and go to an higher championship, instead of buying a new "car" ( what is an option) You should get your money invest in: - The unlocked upgrades at your rally car the Ford Fiesta R2 for example buy better brakes. - Buy replacement parts for things that wear, new tires, etc etc - Buy gearbox revision. - Buy an Gravel kit, or Tarmac kit - Buy a new Ford Fiesta R2 - Hire more and better mechanics/ In that case you can create 2 rallyweapons ( one for the tarmac events, one for the gravel) Now the focus is more on your car to create the best "Character rallycar" to attack maximum the rally stages. Everybody is free to chose what car he wants to dedicate, but this will give you and your career the best way to create an perfect rallymonster to attach the rallystages at its best. This will make the career mode more about the cars, instead of just driving. What do you guys think?

    DiRTy Gossip

    Hmmm gossip material,... ( to get the topic back to gossips) Chief Game Designer Paul was live at the UK radio with Kris Meeke and Elfyn Evans, ( I totally missed it ,.... )would he had some chat with them about the new DiRT game? or perhaps did Meeke and Evans played the game? :O  Bring on the gossips!

    I agree on this, RBR is just hard, hard doesn't equal realism. To create a better game than RBR you can't just copy it, it will never be better (except for graphics etc. ofcourse) Well, @Rallydriven and @Turbodevin19 @Tbtstt one thing I do noticed,... there are Always people that complain about I want the RBR physics,... but what I do noticed is that there are rather more positive reactions instead of negative! And there are just a few reactions that want the old RBR physics,... so I think the DiRT team has to receive a great compliment for achiving something that no rallygame did before ( getting a real sim/ getting real close to RBR)! remeber this is there first real sim at rallygames by codemasters and its heading in the right direction! I am looking forward to the DiRT rally game in 2016, when buggs are gone and it almost complete is! I think we created then the best game together! Thats the power of the early acces,.. every one is helping now to create the best game instead of tear the new game apart!

    DiRT Rally feedback list

    First off all, Amazing job about the stages! Its even better then I played in Southam! They are real rally stages. About the feedback,.. well i just played if for 1,5 hour, but this is my first feedback. What i do missed where the new R class rallycars ( R1, R2 ,R3,R5) Specially this are the new generation and the future. I think this would make the career mode nicer and better, instead of just roundom rallycars. But this is my point of view. Futhermore ( I couldnt chose or didnt figured out yet) Is that I am not alloud to chose the type of tires. I specially would love to chose, for example at Monte Carlo,.. do u want to play it on save and use the spikes tires? Or take the tarmac tires and risk the icy part.  I will play tonight some more and come back with some more feedback this month. Althrough its gona be a busy month May, with 2 big rallies for me... Anyway i will try to play :)

    "Next" DiRT game wishlist!

    And what about rallycross? ;-)

    "Next" DiRT game wishlist!

    Totally agree with you,. i would like to see this too in the new game! :)
  24. What do you love about rally from the mechanic part? Well I guess this small movie from 10 minutes will describe everything, I think this is from the 1984 World championship in the Safari Rally. They had a problem with the gearbox,. and the Rothmans rally team change the gearbox on the Streets in the 15 minute service time,... its amazing! The team work, everything,... that makes the sport so fantastic.  Enjoy! :D https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YfjaIsT3gn0
