    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    Btw, EA did "made" (well one of their studios) one of my most favorite single player offline games quite recently: Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order. It is so far the only game on my PlayStation where I got platinum for 😄. There was a trend indeed with lootboxing at EA. But fans responded about that at Star Wars Battlefront II, even though it had a single player part. But gamers not wanted it and BF2 was in a pretty **** situation. EA and DICE have changed the game a lot, lootboxing is gone, and did a lot of updates on it if i'm correct to make things right, be transparent and try give the gamers what they want. So i think EA is quite aware now to what works and what works not. To be honest, DiRT Rally 2.0 has a lot of potential to be a very good offline and online game. Maybe the keyword is here "potential", because on some front it was lacking quite a lot and in some areas even some small steps were taken back compared to D4 and DR1 and sometimes the visions arent strong enough. - Career mode should have been offline, but it is helpful for the developers to get data, although needing to be online constantly for it is a bit strange. - The online career part was mostly for the My Team and the community challenges. But I think it would be better to make a online career mode seperately for that. - 8 players for online custom sessions are just to low. Should really go up. But seeing D5, I think this will happen. - More "open" lobby's where people can choose an RX class, RX track, etc. Just like in MotoGP 20 where people can choose the class (MotoGP/Moto2/Moto3) and the track after that. - Add Time Trail Challenges: https://forums.codemasters.com/topic/63419-tt20-time-trail-challenges/ - I was talking about a step back earlier. Well in D4 and DR2 it was possible to choose for custome events for "Finals only" in Rallycross sessions. Meaning having semi-final and final in an online event. This option is missing from DR2. In DR2 there is only a "single race" or "full event" option. I did a lot of suggestions in my topic, not meaning DR2 is a bad game, but just to make the game better 🙂 https://forums.codemasters.com/topic/35255-jorritvd’s-suggestions-for-dirt-rally-20/ But I am more than hopefull in DiRT Rally 3 (much more than after D4), or whatever the name will be, especially with the likes of PJ, Jon and all the other talented people working on it, but also with having seperated teams now working on DiRT Arcady/Funny and Dirt Rally 🙂. I wish you all a good holidays and a fruitful 2021 (with DR3 also being announced and/or released ofcourse 😛)

    Yes and no. Codies records multiple cars if they get the chance, even though they might come to the game or not. They even recorded a certain WRC, but that car had never been in any DiRT games so far. But they already recorded that years ago. But saying it is for "one of their new games" it is quite positive 🙂 You could say the same about this post: https://www.facebook.com/bgmsport/posts/3135725793117279 - Cobra, - M3, - Puma (Kitcar or s1600) - Peugeot 208 R5 Or this for the BMW M8 GTE - https://www.facebook.com/watsonwustudios/posts/10157752907595999 - https://www.facebook.com/watsonwustudios/posts/10157743062255999 Aston Martin Vulcan - https://www.facebook.com/1sttakeactiondrivers/posts/590070394983200

    EA and DiRT Rally - What do we think will happen?

    With EA in the game, Codemasters maybe not need to focus on their own Engine development, but can use an EA engine for their next gen games. So resources can be shifted towards other parts, like physics, cars, etc. Also Codies aquired Slightly Mad Studios, and now with EA in the game, both those companies seem to be quite good in licensing and maybe also have better connections/entries at manufacturers. So that might be positive for future cars in the game. It is quite fearefull though that the big EA takes over our beloved Codemasters. I think because that is the lack of info of what EA would want to do with Codemasters and its games / IPs. As lot of times with these kind of investments or from private equity companies, is that they keep / sell / stop / invest in parts, depening on their potential and risk. Basically i think DiRT Rally and normal DiRT Arcady be kept and be invested in, while a GRID and Project CARS will be reviewed and made a strategy about. Both games are similar and not the best and not really have a clear vision what to be. Btw, another possible positive is that Codies get investments and can bring more beautiful games. A few months ago I showed @PJTierney a game concept which is a spinoff from GRID, like DiRT Rally is a spinoff from DiRT/CMR. Maybe Codies have multiple ideas/concepts/IPs laying around, but due to limited resources, these can't be researched or created.

    Currently focus is on DiRT 5. And still post release content needs to be released. So not expect in the coming months. I think earliest might be in summer or something. We can see when DiRT 5 was announced, this was in early May 2020. This was quite some time after S4 DLC, and also after the FLAT-OUT pack DLC that released in March 2020. The only content after that is the Fiesta R5 MK2. This is part of the World Series and was released September 2020. So my expectation is still that there will still be a DiRT Rally title in 2021. Otherwise the gap imo from DiRT Rally 2.0 from 2019 to DiRT WRC in 2023 is to big, especially with the launch of DiRT5 in November 2020. About any announcement for DR3, it wont be before all the planned DLC for DiRT5 is released. Though reading this "Year 1 Edition players get access to all DIRT 5 content in the 12 months after launch, including a minimum of 12 new cars, 60 new Career events, new player sponsors, rewards, liveries, and more!". This though make things a bit different. if a release in 2021 is still being expected, than an announcement would already need to be made during when D5 content is still being released. If look to releases: DiRT Rally (PS4) - 2015/2016 DiRT 4 (PS4) - 2017 June DiRT Rally 2 (PS4) - 2019 Februari DiRT 5 (PS4) - 2020 November * *One important thing to notice about this, is DR1, D4 and DR2 is made by the DiRT Rally team. While DiRT 5 is made by an other dev team. Also investing 4 years in a WRC title wouldn't make so much sense. I don't know if the ROI would be that great. I think the DR players would also buy both games: DR3 (2021) and DIRT WRC (2023). In that case the ROI would be much greater to release both games. Also DR3 could be a bit more experimental for the WRC focused title. Also another thing to consider, after the release of DR2, not soon after that a part of the team already focused on the next Rally title (and not DiRT arcade, what they though did with D4).

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    Quite some posts this week, and now catching up. Stages - About the stages and amount of KMS. A lot of resources go towards this, some say they didn't know, but if just think logical, it ofcourse takes the most time. Also don't forget a stage is basically a straight, while a race or rallycourse is more a circle. So therefore the area of a stage is much wider, while a RX/race track is more more compact. Developing 20 F1 tracks is basically easier than 20 rally location with 2 stages = 40 stages. Basically 40 stages are more like 80 race tracks or 120 RX tracks. - I think more stage KM is possible, but that is also a choice of quality/quantity. Next to that is also has to do with the tools you got and how efficient you can develop with that. For example with cars Codemasters now uses a 3d scanner. - Rather than longer stages, I rather have an extra stage in a bit different environment. For example Germany has stages on the tank/army grounds. You can make the stage longer, but you basically got a longer similar stage. Rather I see a stage in the vineyards to get actually a very different experience. VW For now i wouldnt worry to much for licensing and the brand leaving. VW group has been in the emmision gate for years and have been active in electric sports for years. At the same time we see Audi RX, Audi Quattro, and different VW cars in the game. Also the diesel Touareg Dakar car is in D5.

    Its in development. Thats basically the only thing confirmed. Only known so far is that the former Onrush/Driveclub development team now is responsible for developing the non-rally DiRT titles, they made D5. So the DiRT Rally development team only focuses on the Rally title. So they not need to make the non-rally DiRT title anymore, like they did with D4. This will be a big benefit for DiRT Rally. About licensing and possible content. - According to rumors, Codemasters aquired the WRC license for 2023 and onwards. Most likely this could mean that in 2021 (autumn) we can expect a new DiRT Rally title before full development will be focused on WRC. Ofcourse WRC could be just part of the game like WRX is/was in DR, D4 and DR2. Maybe can expect the game will already get parts of the WRC game. - IMG will not be the WRX promotor anymore after this year. Also D5 not has licensed WRX cars. This could mean that Rallycross could get a very different look in DR3 without the WRX license. I hope it gets somehow the Nitro Rallycross license, but ofcourse also includes all DR2 RX content.

  10. Time Trail Challenges Welcome to Time Trail 2.0, which for now I would like to call Time Trail Challenges (TTC). TTC is a combination of Time Trail and Clubs, but with it offering a new way friends and club members can challenge each other, while also improving their leaderboard times at the same time. TTC you can compare with a time attack event. Everyone has an X amount of attemts to post their fastest time on a stage or a few stages during a certain time periode. They driver who posted the fastest time (or fastest overall time of the combines stages) is the Time Trail Challenge winner of the event. This could mean that the fastest time could be reimproved by all drivers till the time period or till the X amount of attempts have been taken by the driver. Overall and Clubs leaderboards If you have improved your stage time of the class or with that partical car, that time will than also be uploaded to the overall leaderboards. Next to that, there can also be Clubs Leaderboards. There can be two ways these clubs leaderboards work, namely (A) showing the overall leaderboards times from only the club members, or (B) based on the Time Trail Challanges events times. For now I have a better feeling for option A, but if possible I would like to see both options being integrated. Time, stages, events, championships and attempts Time. How long a TTC event takes place is the same as with the current clubs for rally events. Though maybe this will need some testing to see what works well. Amount of stages. You can select one or multiple stages for a time trail challenge event. This could mean that there will be a TTC overall winner, but also TTC stage winners at an event. Events/Championships. As with clubs, it could be possible to organize multiple TTC events and in the end there will be a Champion. Attempts. How many times someone can challenge a stage to post a quicker time can be decided by a hoster. This could be 1, 2, 5, 10, etc. till unlimited attempts. A different amount of attempts will ofcourse cause a different approach by drivers and different feeling for attacking the stages. Improved leaderboards needed The leaderboards of DR2.0 aren't very flexible. You can for example only see a class in combination with a stage. I would really like to see this will go towards the leaderboards of RaceRoom. - Leaderboards based on region/nationality (am i the fastest in my country?) - Class - Car (am i the fastest with a partical car?) - Club (new than / friends) - Maybe more options...

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    Yeah, it is interesting. 9 million players is quite huge tbh, though doesn't day anything ofcourse about how many copies are sold, especially people might borrow it for a short time from a friend, or multiple accounts on a console, or using different account for different purposes (esports/private), etc. Next to that i though it has been free for certain users on Xbox and PS. So yes. 9 million might be than quite easy to achieve. I would really like to know than how many copies have been sold or how many players have played the game for a solid amount of hours, let's say at least more than 4 hours. Also would like to know what are the most played RX tacks. Also the most favorite cars to be used are very debatable imo. I would like to know where this is based on. Is this based on used in amount of times selected/ued or based on km driven.
  12. If you talk about the final, according to the team on fb (https://www.facebook.com/JcRaceteknik) it was the following issue: "due to a throttle stuck on the fourth lap he lost a lot of time finishing P4."

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    DiRT 5 i see as a "fun" game. Rally-Raid is not see as a "Fun", but serious part of the Rally genre. Lol, this old discussion 😄 Also a big part of the community loves both RX and Rally, or just loves RX and not loves Rally. You can say resources are waste on RX, but without RX there wouldn't have been that much Rally content in the game 😉 I think a lot of Rally development has been covered with the profits and things that has been gained of WRX. Yes a lot of resources went to RX, but without RX there wouldn't be DiRT Rally 2.0, at least not as good as we know it is now. I think the game benefits of having both rally categories in the game. A kinda 1 + 1 = 3 effect. Also I mention "both rally categories", as the thing you refer as rally is the classic "stage rally". The rally genre started with point to point "races" from city to city on a public (not closed sometimes) roads. But after that the stage-rally was introduced (with closed public roads) and later other type of Rally genres came alive like Rally-Raid and Rallycross. "Do it alone"? Yes hillclimb you do alone, but with rally you have a co-driver 😉

    Hmm, with Codemasters licensed and produced so many new Rally Raid cars for D5, and as it looks like even Trucks, I wonder if something Rally-Raid will get a serious part in DR3. The cars are basically new, except for the VW Touareg, although I guess it got reworked completly. Laffite G-Tec X-Road Mini John Cooper Works Buggy by X-raid Peugeot 3008 DKR Maxi Porsche Macan T1 Rally Raid Sodicars Racing BV6 Volkswagen Race Touareg 3 does that mean this? >

    https://www.motorsport.com/world-rx/news/new-world-rallycross-championship-promoter-2021/4886618/ Now that it is very likely IMG won't continue with WRX, what would this mean for future WRX content/license in the next DiRT Rally (my expectation in 2021)? Having a license does has it advantages, but also disadvantages. DiRT 3 didn't had an official Rallycross license, as goes the same for DiRT 5. One side gives that possible more freedom for the developers and also licensing, meaning locationwise we won't be limited to WRX locations, while also for cars and liveries it might get easier, also in combination with for example a livery editor. In D5 this is already noticable with a combination of American Rallycross supercars (Subaru and the all new VW Beetle) and WRX supercars (Audi, Megane and 208) already confirmed so far and having the ability for a kinda livery editor (which i believe is more a pattern editor) it could be the next DiRT Rally will get a more semi-fictional Rallycross part, while Rally already was ofcourse (though the rumored future WRC license might change this), meaning we could have a combination of Supercars and locations as never seen before. Don't forget that Codies also aquired SMS that had Rallycross in Project CARS 2. ofcourse those material need to be reworked to get it in a Codies engined game, but still the knowledge, connections and 3d models are there. Knowing Codemasters the supercars will probably be all real (at least that is what I hope, i rather not have fictional), though the locations might become a combination of real and semi-real, including locations as Nitro Rallycross and a possible return of the (semi-real) LA stadium location that was in DiRT 3, based on the X-Games Rallycross event. But a Rallycross track editor might also be an extra, where you can create your own rallycross track in a harbour, airport, dessert or at DirtFish. With D5 there is such an editor, so quite realistic this might become an option. It could be an amazing carlist though 😄 (based on D4, DR2, D5 and PC2) - Audi S1 - Citroën DS3 - Ford Fiesta MK7 (OMSE) - Ford Fiesta MK8 (OMSE) - Ford Fiesta RXS EVO 5 (STARD) - Ford Fiesta MK7 (M-Sport) (yes this is the only Supercar in the list that not has been in PC2 or DiRT) - Ford Focus RS (M-Sport) - Honda Civic Coupe - MINI Cooper SX1 - MINI Countryman - Peugeot 208 - Renault Clio - Renault Megane - SEAT Ibiza - Subaru WRX STI - VW Beetle - VW Polo (Marklund and/or WRC)

    Btw, about the AI Rallycross fix. The AI in your own race are super slow, while the AI in other races were super fast though. So that caused some strange inconsistent results. so the fix should make this a bit better, but not fixes the issue that AI in your own race is superslow in wet condistions. I rather saw that the AI in wet in your own race would be faster with a few percent, so they match the 100% difficulty and the AI times in the other races.

    #gossip The MK8 Fiesta R5 is in DiRT 5. Could this be a suprise car for this months DR2 update?
  22. Come on Codies, bring the Polo RX back from DiRT Rally 1 and DiRT 4. Would be a nice addition and "suprise". I just love the looks of that car (livery is maybe not the best though). RallyX Nordic this weekend at Arvika.
