    Just make sure you put in the Game code before the steam code when during installation! It gets a bit borked if you do it the other way round.

    Couldn't get the setup to download the game from the disks so Im in a weird place right now; eager to get home to play but unsure if I will even be able to!

    The first proper closed public-road rally in England took place last year actually. The "Corbeau Seats Rally Tendring & Clacton". This was very much a pilot event for the start of closed road rallying in mainland UK. It was a success and is returning again in April this year. There was talk of including it in the British Tarmac Rally Champ but i think given its infancy, it has been left off the schedule for 2019.

    If the web page loads slowly, the background picture comes up before the pictures and text in front of it. So I had a split second of just that picture. Everything is loading instantly now so I cant get a screen of it without the stuff in front. EDIT: You got it nice! ^^

    Unsure if this has already been noticed, but i see a 306 Maxi on the DirtRally2 website: http://dirtrally2.com/ It's in the image behind the "Rise to the challenge" section. Is this an old photo used accidentally, or a legit 2.0 photo that shouldn't be there?

    sounds like a job for @Rallycameraman  If this is the case, theres a guy on this forum who actually lives near the peak and has been saying the sun position is wrong since its release.  Edit: It was @bokimoto

    Yeah I think we'd have to just accept that we already know them, but id rather have the ability to have a league championship for example with 10-12 rallies (knowing half of them well) than only having 5-6 rallies that are all new.

    We’ve been told it takes codies a long time to completely create a stage, and although we had a nice stream of new locations in the EA period, we know they had been in development for a year or two on top of that. My thought is that if they are planning to release a sequel of some form in 2 years or so, they likely wont be able to create more than 5 ish new locations. So I can see why they may want to save any they make for the next title rather than releasing a new location as dlc in 6-8 months, to then receive the backlash from players/press for “reusing most of the content and only having 4 new locations” Personally I would rather have recycled stages as well if it means more stages, but I know a lot of people would get upset about having minimal new content in a new title.

    As we have discussed before on here, true dynamic terrain deforming is probably unlikely, a much more time efficient way (and far less demanding processing wise) would be to create separate stage profiles for different levels of use. Just like circuit games have dirty - fully rubbered in versions of the same tracks. The next dirt game could have various versions of stages. This would potentially be the same stage with the physical model changed to simulate rutting etc and grip level changes. The same method could be used to add larger puddles and ruts to replicate a “heavy rain” weather condition. Which includes vast physical changes of the surface not just visual rain and less grip.
