    DiRT 4

    @MiatakiasGR I know its 4 years ago, but I think u underestimate what time and money it cost to make one full proper game. Not to mention the perfectionism where the Codemasters team works with. A few forum members and I had the privilege to take a look in the Codemasters Kitchen where they are working at some delicious recipes. But consider this,.. Every year a half microwave oven meal, created by machines and made to get money out of you and dont care about the taste or the recipes. Or One full hand made big feast meal made with love by Jamie Oliver with all the right ingredients from the locals including some very nice secret and innovating taste? That will make u satisfied! For the same price..... Belive me its worth the waiting to get satisfied ;-) And beside that its good that Codemasters don't spill any beans! I mean every body is curious what they are making, but hey! U dont let the world look in the Kitchen while they are preparing a feast meal in a 4 star restaurant ;-) Beside that, how long do you think it will take to create one proper "Rally" in a game? I think when u find out the answer, u probally will have more respect to a Codemasters game ;-) Specially if u know that for example Colin McRae Rally 2005 had over more then 9 rallies and 70 stages And I am not yet talking about the physics and all the other important things that. Cant wait until the new DiRT ( dont know why i keep calling it like this) is released and i can do my impression story about what i saw, felt and noticed over there in Southam
  3. I prefere rally, but i do also love rallycross , but if i had to make a choice between rally and rallycross then i would go for rally.

    U can make the best and most beautiful good looking graphic stages,... but as long as game snow, does not react as real snow, game ice, not as real ice, and game gravel and tarmac, not as real gravel and tarmac, its all worthless.... For example...the SS1 of the Monte Carlo Rally 2015 ( if u didnt see it, try to watch it ) the stage was mixed up by ice snow and tarmac,... no WRC driver ( except the legend Loeb) couldnt drive flat out, and had to be carefull, this is where its all about in rallying master the underground and try to be as fast as possible .. Thats what is also really important for a rally game ( sim or not doesnt mather) the behavior of the surrounds and nature has to be perfect. because this is where its all about... ( same with the cars) And i have to admit,... with all respect to the WRC games made by Milestone or other racing games... no one got that perfect yet. The modders of RBR came very close,.. thats why its so perfect RALLY SIM, I do hope that codemasters will get close to it! But I think I am alloud to say this * if not please  @justbiglee dont kill me *  I think Codemasters and the DiRT team understand this important basic structure very well... and know what to do!

    I really do not hope that the multiplayer game in the WRC would be something like we discussed here at the forum,... for example my idea, the ultimate wrc team... >.< Some where i do noticed that balck bean or bigben took some ideas from us... =/

    VW Polo WRC 2015 Monte Carlo Rally

    Personally i prefere the 2014 M-Sport livery its some where better then the 2015 livery, But i guess thats just taste, But the Martin Prokop 2015 livery is i think with VW POLO WRC the best:

    VW Polo WRC 2015 Monte Carlo Rally

    It will be a legendary livery, as the Lancia Delta liveries with Martini on it

    DiRTy Gossip

    Perhaps not a DiRTy gossip, but still a rally related gossip! This is the Citroend DS3 WRC rallycar for S Chardonnet for the Montecarlo WRC Rally 2015 What I noticed is that the producer from the WRC games ( bigben) is a big sponsor of this rally car! As u can see on the photo's: Have to admit the livery is awesome!  But what i do wonder is if Bigben can sponsor a rallycar ( approximately 60.000 euro (46.000 British pounds) for the rent of a WRC for 1 rally ( excluding tires fuel and damaged parts) Would the WRC game sell that good in that case, they use this as promotion?

    Benniz's rally driver debut - The thread

    In-game League Support

    I like the Manufactures points, u can do that in combination with a Co-Up mode online championship, so u can form with ur friends a team! ( Online and offline) And about the damage if u have more then 1 stage between the service, .. that is a must in rally. After all its not JUST driving flat out! , Its driving on the maximum but also try to keep your car together!

    DiRTy Gossip

    I don't mind, though I did enjoy the inclusion of  X Games events for Rally Cross in previous games. Can you spill a little information about gameplay. What are the rally stages like? My biggest complaint about DiRT 3 was that the stages were mostly wide and often too short. They signed a non disclosure agreement so they are not allowed to talk about what they saw. Thats true, so sorry @BenjaminJohnson i cant and wont spill any beans, but I can tell its in a save hands from an amazing developers team right now! ;-)

    DiRTy Gossip

    Just wondering, quick question to our American/ Asian forum members. Would you guys mind if for example the new DiRT game rallies (and  rallycross etc etc) events are based on the European events? For example WRC Wales rally, WRC  Monte Carlo rally,WRC Sweden rally, or perhpas some Ypres ERC Rally? I mean the big hero's from the USA ( Ken Block, Foust, Crazy Leo and many more) come over sea to compete in WRC events or European rallies. Just curious , because I think many European rally fans do would like to see the european rallies and rallycross stages.

    Oh yeah! (And I did it more than once) So did I o:) U have to take a whole new approach, like u do in real life, but it's just a matter of time to get it under control ;-)

    In-game League Support

    So here are my Ideas of adding proper full on league support But before can start my ideas we have to think a little bit out of the box about a league /Online Multiplayer mode, this way I think we can create a very successful online game mode and a very active and fun game league! So first of,… Not just the same Multiplayer as before where u can start a lobby, chose a rally, chose a rally car and go. No my idea is a whole different. My  idea about the “league” / online multiplayer mode idea is based on my idea about the WRC Ultimate team  (http://forums.codemasters.com/discussion/43/idea-wrc-ultimate-rallyteam-explained/p1) U can compare it to an online MMO (Massively multiplayer online role-playing game) U start your career / league multiplayer in your workshop/ team place, In this area u can put your online settings, chose your rally or rallycross car where u want to drive in online, u can see the active online rallies for this week and all different championships. In this start “menu” u directly separate something very important! U separate the hardcore prof’s from the beginners (rookies), I hear u thinking how? Well, when u first start the “league”/ Online Multiplayer everyone is equal, u can start your beginning car from a few R2 rally cars for example Fiesta R2 , Opel (Vauxhall in the UK) Adam R2, Peugeot 208 R2 etc etc by choosing that car u automatically starts in the R2 league, where u can compete against other gamers driving almost the same car ( only the settings are different). If u are successful u win a lot, means u get more “virtual cash”  u can buy upgrades, but at a moment if u have enough virtual cash u can rent, or perhaps later buy a WRC car, and earn more money to for fill your online career as Rally Champion! That also opens new leagues for example R5 or the WRC class. Well lets go back to the League, because that was the real question, when u got your gamers/ players divided into classes ( R2 “beginners”/ WRC prof’s”) u can put all the players together in one rally, For example Codemasters organised 1 big rally every month from 18 stages, we take for example Rally Monte Carlo at the end of January, Everybody can enter this event ( from Monday until Sunday), in his or her car career car, u will notice that u got for example and entry of 100 cars/gamers, consists of 40 R2 cars , 30 R3 cars, 20 R5 cars and 10 WRC cars. That means that u have 4 leagues ( R2,R3,R5,WRC) with everyone competing with almost the same car specs! = fair! Depending what your finish is in your class (for example R2) u get points for your (R2) league / championship, for example if u finish 1st in your R2 class in the rally u get 25 points 2nd  18 points 3rd 15 points etc etc. But the other bonus award, for example if u finish with your R2 rally car 20th overall in the big Monte Carlo Rally ( outstanding job!) u get a lot of money, to develop your R2 car or perhaps rent a WRC car in your next event? U can put the championship results at the website or in the service area/ lobby This answers this part of your question Lee: Well that was the explanation of the game mode well lets take it back to the Leauge / the big Rally made by Codemasters 1x a month. You start the rally in the Lobby. The lobby is not just a lobby, but it is the service area, because every rally starts at the service area, and end at the service area/ podium) As I said before and @Areyouben mention for the lobby I also would like to see a Service Area, where u can adjust your rally car for the upcoming 2 or 3 rally stages In the Service area u can adjust for example repair the damage, get your set-up ready, check the weather case, the stage information and adjust your settings for it, for example tires, or gravel setup etc etc I think that are the most important things, specially if a dynamic weather system will be added. Ofcourse you can also join other own created rallies, but i think u need to keep one main Championship to bind every one together so the online mode will not fall apart ( like it now did with the other Codemasters games). What do you guys think of the idea? Have to say we all need to work it out to give it more shape, but this is a rough sketch.

    Yhea I agree whit that, thats also kind of idea what I mention before,  I hope that they build a game , and use it as foundation for a good game for a several years, instead of realease, few updates, and on to the next game,..

    I dont know about the early acces , Dont know if it should be that useful,.. But if it is for the cash flow to create the rally game, then of course I would buy it and support Codemasters. Because I stand behind Codemasters because they make awesome rallygames and keep the rallysport a live by many people who are not familiar or supporting or not known the rallysport, and that keeps my sport, my passion ( the rallysport) also a live! I do have faith in Codies at Southam that they create something amazing,.. and I believe in their quality games. so for bugs and etc, i think its nonsense to do an early access. But as i mention, if it's to get the money to complete that amazing rally game, then u got my investment in it!

    DiRTy Gossip

    I do not believe that because of the rumours / gossip about the many layoffs will influence a release of a new DiRT game. Atleast the basic hard kern of the DiRT development team will stay together for sure. ( what I can conclude about the news) What will not influence the quality of the game. I think its a good thing that there is no release date or anything known yet. The DiRT team has to do a few steps back, and slow the progress of the new game a little bit, but as I said before I believe and think that it wont hurt a quality game. And i think thats the most important thing, a good quality game, instead of a rushed half complete game, what only cause more irritations, by the fans and customers. We just have to be a little bit more patient guys ;-)

    DiRTy Gossip

    Lets hope the DiRT team got a trip to the Autosport International Show 2015 (in Birmingham) to sign Petter Solberg as game character / racing game star ( after Colin McRae and Ken Block ) That would be an awesome Gossip! Atleast Birmingham is close to Southam , and many M-Sport rally cars ( and important rally and rallycross related people) are there, for example Petter Solberg, Malcolm Wilson, ( D-Mack thropy winner, rally tallent and Dutch friend Mats van den Brand) and many more! Lets hope at this positive news ;-) :D

    Personal. I think early access can be very good for testing the game by a lot of people,.. But to be honest,.. Did a DiRT game ( yes i am talking about a DiRT game not a GAS game) ever had that many buggs that it wasnt playable? Not that I know,.. I think Codemasters deliver quality good products qua rally games. So back to early access, or Demo , I do not think this is necessary for a good game. I do think that u let many people down if u just do it for PC and not for the other consols. Beside that, I think we should get rid of just "a new" game each 1 or 2 years ( for example every year a F1 game) I think the games now a days and the future are based on 1 basic game and that gets updated. For example look at all the MMO games? u download or buy one content and that got extend. That will make a game more diverse and long to live! ( U do can work on a better version behind the screens and release it after 4  years or so) Lets take it back to F1 for example. Wouldnt it be great if u could buy just 1x a game with the basic for example 2015 season/ circuits and teams? And if its 2016 that u can buy/download the new teams and circuit changes? Back to DiRT 3, when Monte Carlo update came out, it extented the game live, and i do think u can add by an update this to a season or so and also with an update u can take out the small buggs ( only thing is i dont know how to fit this in the online multiplayer, perhaps by forcing to update?) I think u can in that case create a topic or wish list what rally the gamers would love to see,.. so Codemasters can create that rally. Anyway what do you guys think about this?
