    Michigan can become Ontario, Australia can become a different part of Australia...

    Five rally locations, five rallycross circuits, three landrush locations, and DirtFish Rally School.

    I thought Ogier's fiesta was the best of the M-Sport cars. As for best livery overall, I'm torn between OneBet, Ogier's Fiesta and the i20. Best looking car goes to the Yaris though. It's fierce! Horses for courses. Blue/red/yellow is a nice mix of colours, but I don't find seeing the Red Bull logo for the millionth time very exciting. At least Torro Rosso has mixed things up with silver. I think Tanak has the best Fiesta this year, then Ostberg, Evans, Bertelli,  Ogier.  I do agree though that the Yaris is the best-looking car, which is not something I ever thought I'd say in any context.

    All chrome or all matte, I don't think the mix looks good in photos. Plus the new orange trim, it's too reminiscent of Ostberg's car.  Still more interesting than Ogier's Fiesta though.

    WRX changed "Heat" to "Qualifying" last season, so if D4 reflects that then that'll solve that issue. Also, in case anyone wants to relive the many conditions of Your Stage:

    Yup. To clarify a bit more. This is a team branding suite that allows you to name your team, select a pattern for you cars and choose colours for the various elements of those patterns. You can also add your name, flag and race number.  The sponsors that you have signed will appear on the car in the slots you choose. BE STILL MY BEATING HEART @KickUp to be clear, the name, flag and race number will be on the car rather than the windows, right? On the fenders maybe? Also, was the name and flag option added recently due to the feedback given or was it already planned? Flag on roof scoop would be great. How about blood type on older cars? :wink:

    No importing pictures. It's pre installed shapes etc.  Is the livery editor going to be more like the one in GRID games (i.e. premade liveries where you can only change colors) or something like in NFS (where you can make liveries by combining different shapes manually) More like Grid I can live with that. I spent more hours designing liveries than racing in the Forza games, and while that was fun and rewarding, I won't complain if a game favours driving over designing. Between the templates, colours, and sponsor logos, I was able to make some liveries I was pretty happy with in Grid.

    Third time is the charm for Neuville? :grimace:

    Well if you don't want our continent in rally games, you shouldn't have colonized us. :wink: Bring on some CRC rounds! Is that a pic of Pacific Forest stages? Rocky Mountain Rally.

    I'm excited to re-visit Michigan without D3's pee-pee filter. Edit: Language.

    I've used a pad this way when I've needed to since analogue sticks were a thing. Keep meaning to try the shoulder trigger method but never gotten around to it. I have a friend who uses the right stick to accelerate/brake too, coming from RC cars. But how do you left-foot brake with that? I don't know if I'd survive a Finnish stage using the right stick.

    I haven't had much trouble with a gamepad in Project CARS with no assists. Some cars are worse than others, but overall it was a pretty good experience with a gamepad. RaceRoom is even better with a gamepad. Codemasters have always been really good with pads obviously, and Dirt Rally is no exception—throwing the car in with a flick of the thumbstick, then steering through the corner by feathering the gas and brake on the triggers. I'd get a wheel if I could but I can't, so praise racing devs who support gamepads well.

    I bought Forza 3 because my car was in it ('09 Honda Fit Sport). Forza 5 onwards: no Fit. They heard I bought the game just for that car, and the price went up. Priced it right out of the game. So I didn't buy an Xbox One. True story. At least I got my HPD rally Fit in Forza Horizon.

    You'll be fine once you hear Nicky / Jen ;) SometimesI hear Paul in my head when making a 90 degree left when walking about the streets. It's frightening ;) When I drive in the winter I hear "ice patches from here" on sections of my commute that are shaded by trees. Your voice is infectious, Paul! Lol, I'm relieved to know I'm not the only one—if I drop something, I now instinctively say "Radiator's taken a knock".

    I play DR on a Boot Camp'ed iMac: I have the i5 and 8GB of RAM, but there's no upgrading its GT 750M. :grimace: But at half-res (1366x768) and with a mix of low/medium/high settings (gotta have those road stones and night lighting), I get anywhere from 30-60 fps depending on the stage—60 in parts of Germany, 30 in parts of Monte Carlo (with trees on ultra low :persevere: ). If I can get a minimum 30 in all conditions with similar eye candy in D4, I'll be a happy camper. I'm probably a rare one that likes the motion blur in DR, I find it convincingly smooths out the frame rate when under 45.

    I've been collecting the stuff that's interested me: Gameplay and Stages Maximum stage length of 13 km No WRC stages Weather changes over running, rain/snow can intensify over stageRetired cars will be only AI cars on stage, no running cars Crashes play longerNo tire wearTV-style replays Repairs are quick fix/repair/replace, which affect chance of later failure Career Mode Career mode is similar to the first GRID's Male and female driver portraits No Fuzzynuts Livery editor includes templates, colours, number, sponsor placements Livery editor not available for all cars No custom names on windows Career cars for purchase are in different conditions Car upgrades are based on durability Free play cars are loaners from different teams Multi-class rallies, but separate Modern and Historic events No custom championships in career Online Cross-platform leaderboards and track-sharing Cross-platform clubs (leagues) CREST works for DiRT 4 Console DiRT 4 on Project Scorpio will be more like higher PC performance

    So gutted for Neuville. But so excited for Toyota's chances on Sunday. Mostly gutted though. Also great to see Ostberg enjoying himself again! It's been a couple years.

    Yeah, could have easily picked up second or maybe even 1st on that rally if you had just held back a bit like Latvala did Or if Citroen brought their WRC car and not their WTCC car.

    If you go to your profile, you'll see it at the top, under your name and above your reactions: "Visits 1,379". I have only 225, so I added a video to reward the few who visit. It could be to take a better look at bigger profile pics. I've added to a few people's visit counts by doing that.

    Nah, they woudn't be so cruel, and they surely left something for gossipers there. List updated with N, by the way. Okay, I'm terrible at guessing but i'd pick New Zealand, Norway, Malaysia or Malta. It really does just say Mystery:
