    Year One Pass - Unwanted 2.4 million credits

    I was never a fan of the random credit drops or the DLC cars being free in career, but that's a fair explanation, thanks for posting. OP, I guess the best thing for it is to say 2.4m = 0 then, and treat that as the world's most generous bank overdraft or, if you want to up the realism level of modern day professional rally driving, that's the family money to fall back on in 'hard times'.

    from 'a' real car or 'the' real car? There are a few that are using donor sounds from other cars I believe.
  3. I keep meaning to write a really long post, but whilst this is in my mind: - Please don't abandon the 'offline' career aspect or competing vs AI - Help give the AI some sense of personality and order - I know you must get tired of RBR glorification, but RBR had AI modifiers for consistency, aggression, mechanical sympathy - That the 'broken' cars you pass in stage are the same ones as on the leaderboard are great, but at the moment I can't even see the liveries each driver is assigned in the UI to know who I've passed and whether they're a rival - I know this assignment is made by the game, because the one you see set off in the animation before a stage loop is consistent with the name ahead of you - Keep the super difficult AI! The only time I've been bored in DR1 or DR2 was the first couple of seasons in DR2 when I could crash and still win stages by a minute - Similarly to drivers, in RBR each car also had attributes - I'd love to be in a position where the defacto 70s class had Stratos' excelling on tarmac but struggling on loose, Escorts being durable rocks that didn't break and 131s being great all-rounders - in R5s in real life, the Citroen has typically had more success on asphalt with the Fiesta being better on gravel and the Fabia being a great all-rounder - only small modifiers, but would be great to have, especially for classes with more varied cars - The dynamic calendars and events you have in DR1 and DR2 are a highlight for me; it's great that each 'season' you compete in is unique - please keep some aspect of this - More care about the development of weather, times of day (should be morning and afternoon by default, with a chance of evening and a small chance of night or dawn) and stage 'looping' (same order of stages in the afternoon that were run in the morning)- Being more ambitious, instead of upgrading your own car and choosing to boost this or that, the quality would be determined by the team you rent a car from for the season, with the option to be hired by a works team for the 'perfect' version of the car (the latter part of which PC2 started to play with) - Redo the car classes, please... I'll rewrite a longer post on this, but the Lancia Delta competed v Ford Sierras and M3s in real life and the Evo VI rallied against the '01 Focus and the two early 2000CC Subarus. That the Stratos is in a different class to the Escort and 131 Abarth is a travesty.

    Sound in sims is getting better and better - Codemasters' has been really good since I first entered a tunnel in a Stratos in DR1 and exited beaming from ear to ear, but Raceroom is the gold standard IMO. Beyond that, ACC is a huge improvement from AC and is definitely top tier. Other games like Il2 Sturmovik have also been improving loads in this area too.

    Really nice video... but '591' hp should definitely be in quotation marks (also, those US stages are some of the best rally stages in any game - hope you find some more 'lesser known' gems like these for whatever Rally does next)

    Do tell more... I'll be really surprised if that's not Sector3/Simbin's doing
  7. Nice photos @Godderis - think I'm in one of those! Ypres/Belgium would 100% be top of my wishlist, but TBH I don't mind if they don't introduce any new locations. In fact, I'd ideally save completely new countries for DLC and start with 8-10 of the locations from DR2, but done with an extra couple of stages for each. This means a) they don't get accused of selling old content in the same way if the DLC 'seasons' contain, say, 1 new and 1 updated location and b) we're not doing the same 20kms on a loop for 12 stages. Let's say, 8 locations: - New Zealand with Kauri or Matira (bit more open farmland, lessen the amount of time on the coastal stage) - USA with any 2 additional stages - Germany with some much requested Mosel Valley stages - Wales with Myherin or Gartheinog/Dyfi - Finland with a couple of more technical stages (and without the blasted fog!) - Scotland (again without fog) and the Griffin stage - Sweden with Rammen - Monte Carlo (call it France) with a more typical stage without a mountain pass and some small villages; I really enjoyed Curbans-Piegut the year I was there, for example *I picked these at semi-random, the locations we have in DR2 are all so well modelled - would be just as happy with a different selection I'd much rather something like this than lose the classic stages we already have in lieu of starting from scratch again personally.

    If you have any walkthroughs that teach me how to get to the Rocky-esque montage where Rodger learns how to NOT break the car, I'm begging you please share... (gives PJ perfect excuse to post the DR2 School YouTube playlist)

    Reverse stages will be interesting

    Tips for driving 4WD cars quicker

    Nice question - the Lancia Delta is actually one of the more unique 4x4 cars, especially in its default setup it's known for how it understeers heavily - I'm afraid I don't have much advice on it as it's not a car I use often, but there is a lot of setup discussion for it around - if you join the Discord server and ask there, some of the quickest guys on the leaderboards will happily discuss setup tips with you (you may struggle to stop them!).

    Some nice coasters for your coffee whilst you're playing Dirt Rally there, I see

    Colin McRae: FLAT OUT Pack

    I actually really struggled to find a #1 of the appropriate era for the 'correct' car - hadn't occurred to me that it never was in official works colours
