    crazy fast event times

    @Mike Dee Nice investigating skills you have there. Well done mate! Also interesting to see that the difference is smaller than I expected between the 205 GTI and the Citroƫn C4 (+-20sec).

    PC - Edited (colour/contrast) Finished the German round in the Dirt Official club. Man was that a close fight! I was 0.2 seconds behind second place on the penultimate stage but made a few minor errors on the final one. Great result and some exhillerating rallying! (Even though I'm not a huge fan of the NR4 cars.)

    crazy fast event times

    Also keep in mind that some of the cars in the same class differ immensely. Take the 2000's class for example. I love driving the Skoda Fabia but it's the slowest car in the line-up. I go a minimum of two seconds faster with the Ford Focus on short stages. And as @Mike Dee mentioned there are a few drivers out there that are insanely fast, a few of the I know like Jarod. You'd see me at the top of the leaderboards in events in the past (I focus on clubs now) on tarmac rounds and most likely at the bottom of the top 10 in gravel rounds. It takes a lot of practice, dedication and a certain amount of talent to be at the top but those that reach that level are legit. Even if it looks like there times are insane and unrealistic. Also keep in mind that a decent setup helps a lot as well.
  4. Ok, that is true. We know and they know they can pull it off. The question then is, what would it cost in regards to time and resources to do this and is it worth that? I'm convinced they discuss it from time to time at the office so who knows. It would benefit many of us but what we want is not always what we will get as we look at it from a lover of the game perspective and they have to look at it from a lover of the game AND business perspective. I doubt it will happen in this title unfortunately but I truly hope that they will keep this in mind when they develop the next iteration of the game from the ground up.
  5. If I'm not mistaken the way we access those files for livery design is by opening the file where everything related to the cars is located. Because we bought the game we have access to the base content, which is moddable. If DLC content isn't encrypted, a certain modder would not just be able to extract the files from the DLC content concerning liveries but also the other car files which enables him/her to provide those cars freely to anyone via download. I personally hope that they change the way they go about it and do make them available at some point for livery modding.
  6. I've added the download link to my original post for the SimSepp VW Polo GTI R5. I'll also add it again right here: https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/simsepp-vw-polo-gti-r5.28311/
  7. Well, I've discussed a bit more with SimSepp and we've decided to make the livery available to the community. I'll upload the files in a bit and I'll post the link.
  8. Unfortunately not. It's a one of for SimSepp who is going to use it personally for championships.

    PC - Edited (colour + contrast) SRD - Sim's Racing Design proudly presents the JWR Belgium VW Polo GTI R5. First seen on the stages of the first round of the WRCGamersClub Team Challenge at Monte Carlo. The team is loving it as do the spectators!
  12. They have given an explanation as to why the DLC cars are encrypted. It has to do with the fact that if they do make them available for us modders to create liveries for them, it would also allow a different kind of modder to extract the cars and offer them free of charge. It is content people have to pay for and if they would be available to download for free, it would benefit them or in fact us. If they don't get the revenue for the DLC content they won't invest in creating more DLC content. Even though it's not ideal for us the community, it is understandable. Maybe one day they will find a way to make them available without the risk of seeing the cars released for free by the type of modder I am definitely not a fan of. Once again a few people ruin it for the vast majority. I made a few suggestions on how to do it but every single one has its flaws one way or the other. Atleast we can continue designing some fantastic liveries for the ones that are available until a solution is found.

    Not the Seat Cordoba WRC EVO 1. Give me the Seat Cordoba WRC EVO 3 any day of the week.

    Montecarlo full tarmac without snow, what do you think ?

    I do feel an improvement when you compare Spain to Germany for example whereas in Germany it feels more realistic overall. However with a base setup, tarmac is indeed not where it should be but when you fiddle around with the setup of the car you can get it pretty close. Let me give you an example: I drove the Waldabstieg stage with the base setup of the Peugeot 208 R2 (yes, I know it's not an AWD car but I don't have one for an AWD car) and afterwards used a custom setup to drive the same stage. The difference is night and day. The car is so much more planted . It grips when turning into a bend with just a hint of understeer. It barely slides wide or understeers when going around high speed corners. It is very stable under heavy braking. Just a slight hint of oversteer in order easily go around the corner. Etc. If you want to get a great feeling from the cars on tarmac, creating proper setups is the way to go.

    @PJTierney You ask for more screenshots, I heard? And in particular of some cars that you rarely see screenshots of? Here are some of my finest creations thusfar. All have been edited obviously but pm me if you want the non-edited ones and I'll gladly send them to you. Keep in mind that the forum for some reason lowers the quality.

    @PJTierney I saw what your wrote there at the bottom of this week's blog...šŸ§ Less likely = DR 3.0. Highly likely = New DLC season announcement with some spicy cars in there. Give me the latter, please. You don't need to create the release screenshot anymore as @Riggs already created one for you.
  23. Keep in mind that the images posted here aren't as sharp as the ones I have on my PC. They somehow lose a bit of sharpness. When taking screenshot, I do change the graphics settings to ultra so it has the best quality. I have to change them when driving though as I would be stuttering the whole way otherwise. I also edit the images sometimes letting the colours be more prominent and use a filter to sharpen the image. I can basically get from the raw image to the edited image in 6 clicks using Gimp and www.fotobewerken.eu . (Sssssssssst!) Before: After:

    RIGGS, YOU FOOL!!! My heart nearly jumped out of my chest when I saw that image! I had my arms in the air screaming: "YEEEEEEEEEEEAH!!!" for about two seconds! Than I saw the words 'Fan-made' and became enraged and soon after that depressed... Thanks for that! Really appreciate it!
