    'might' and hope we do, but no point in getting too carried away until we know more 😉

    I mean, there’s a difference between a McRae pack with a couple of Group A Subarus and a Year 2 season pass content announcement. I suspect we’re looking at something like the former, so should be wary not to get carried away as Internet forums are want to do.

    Ohmygodsohmygodsohmygods! My brain is saying “don’t get too carried away, it’s likely a McRae themed DLC pack” but my heart is saying “yey, there’s more rally stuff, dream big!” very Season 555 colours...

    Was just thinking "yes, DR2 just about edges it over Assetto Corsa Competizione", but they made my choice very easy

    Is DLC available in career?

    Yep - your season will always choose 6 random rallies from the ones you have access to - I’m not sure how RX works, but guessing something similar. I'm a big fan of the randomisation as it means no two seasons are alike

    They crowdfunded their first game and gave all people who contributed various levels of access to forums (think Patreon before Patreon), inputting ideas and participating in votes based on their contribution. They then offered 'profit share', so I ended up getting back more than I put in, despite not really liking the first game. I found the experience excellent They changed the rules for the second game after getting some legal clarification, I believe. They opened it up to some of the higher only levels of contribution to create a smaller crowd of people with access to the internal workings (partially because the original game had grown hugely in scale - originally when access was offered there was no licenced content). I didn't participated, having not really enjoyed the first game, but thought the second one was a huge improvement. Remember CARS stands for Community Assisted Racing Simulator (IIRC), so it was a core part of their model - I wouldn't be so disparaging. Game one to game two showed huge progress, my only issues with them are trying to be too broad with their offering rather than doing fewer things very well, so the model worked well. --- Don't take the above as gospel, but it's my recollection as someone who actively followed the dev of both.
  7. Guess it's just like when I bought my car and I didn't choose to take all the upgrades in the brochure, then they bait and switched me and provided me a car without all the extra upgrades on it.

    @JorritVD I certainly don't think a car being in one game would be a precursor to it being in another. I'm sure there are some very different licensing agreements that have been signed between the two. SMS always seem to have done very well on the licensing front, so hopefully some of that rubs off!
  9. Ironically, I feel those are some of the most realistic fictional liveries added yet - kudos to their designer.

    Very interesting - I know Ian Bell mentioned a desire to do ‘Project Rally’ one day, so could be a match made in heaven if it is handled correctly. Also note SMS have licenced their engine for Reiza’s new title (sequel to Automobilista).

    I don’t see Peugeot coming back to WRC any time soon, seeing as they just confirmed a WEC programme for Le Mans from 2022.
  12. Thanks for the reply, bonus points for the fact it’s 6pm on a Sunday evening... Patience earned 🙂
  13. Wow, that video shows it perfectly. Please fix this Codies, or at least present an explanation as to why this is the case. That video also shows off some of the physics improvements nicely BTW.
  14. Thanks PJ; I'm really disappointed with this, it's ruining the otherwise superb location for me - if I'm told it's a necessary compromise then I'll be frustrated by the fog-free preview screens that are impossible to recreate but will move on and be more careful to check video next time - if it's a design decision then I really hope it can be reviewed.
