    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    The Skoda in the game is the Evo, but not the absolute most recent spec of the Evo. The car in DR2.0 is this one (but with testing roof): So yeah, if macebig is saying it's not a Fabia Evo, he's wrong. If he's saying it's not the most recent spec of the Fabia Evo, then he is right. Though, to me, the different roof scoop and lettering are not deal breakers.

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    Well, turning off the crowds does boost the FPS significantly. I was hoping not to turn them off entirely because the stages look a bit lifeless without them. But looks like that's what I might have to settle with. It's a shame with a card that should, in theory, eat this game for breakfast.

    AO as in Ambient Occlusion? Regular Ambient Occlusion, not the Advanced one? That sounds like way too much of a graphical downgrade for my kind of system, which is unfortunate. As for a few specific locations where the drops always happen: - Col de Turini at the top. - Argentina when you go into the rocks where there's a lot of people watching. - Borysik stage in Poland, especially at night, when you go around the hay bales and the house, shortly after the start.

    I've been directed here, by PJ himself, because I'm wondering if any of you could give me performance tips. My card is a RTX 2070 Super, paired with an i7-9700K. However, despite playing on High, with crowds on Low and Screenspace Reflections off, I'm still getting places with as much as an 80% drop in framerate. Any suggestions?

    Introducing DiRT Rollers

    It's a real game in development guys. The only April Fool's part is the screenshots. This is how the game will actually play like, based on the licensed series it's reproducing:

    Hyundai IMax customer review: Bought van for sportiness, family and unparalled in-car movie experience. Can confirm the first two but the last, and most advertised feature, is not present. 4/10.

    All content revealed, or only a partial reveal?

    Considering the car that's been revealed in the teaser, who wants a modern recreation of this:

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    I don't know where RallyMobil gets their specs from but, either those are not R5 (just based on the actual R5s) cars, and are custom for that championship, or those are R5 cars and they got a bunch of specs wrong. 210 hp? More like 280. 350 nm of torque? More like 450. And, definitely, not 6-speed gearboxes. If you wanted to know for sure, why didn't you go directly to the FIA or, better yet, the manufacturers of the cars? These are customer cars, so specs are available online for everyone to see. It's better to read information from the grapevine, rather than from the grapes.

    R5 cars are all 5-speed, what are you talking about? To make the class cost-effective, R5 regulations force manufacturers to use several standard parts, one of which is a Sadev 5-speed sequential transmission, engineered specifically for the class. If you want to homologate a car to R5 specs, you cannot have any other transmission.

    In terms of stage aesthetic, a Scotland rally would be a little underwhelming. It's basically Wales rally but set further north on the same island. Terrain, hazards, trees, look too similar.

    less wide stages/more tight like the real ones..

    WRC 8 uses mostly made-up roads, made to have the feel of the country their are set in. DiRT Rally 2.0 uses almost entirely real roads which, if they are wide in real life, they'll be wide in-game. Just because it's a rally stage, it isn't always 1-inch-clearance kind of narrow. Case in point:

    Yeah, but PJ put the entire era out of question, sadly. Oh well, we pick up what we can get.

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    To be fair, due to class balancing for competitive racing, this is true for any car in the game, to a degree. The early 2000s cars aren't really supposed to keep up with the late 2000s cars, but they do. It's a BOP that has to be done due the class structure that makes appearance and sound the only obvious differences. The only class that lets you carry up to 4 spare tires. Make use of that extra room in the back.

    Since the 2010's WRCs are still out of the question, let's build an envious 2000-2010 WRC collection. Is that model car detailed enough for you to scan it into the game 😉?

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    A new generation model is definitely not a facelift. A facelift was what M-Sport did with its Fiesta WRC half-way through the 2014 season. New front end and barely anything mechanical. Different ball game with the new Fiesta R5, doesn't even sound the same.

    Don't forget it's little brother, the R2. It's apparently also a very good car.

    And, to prove my point, there it is. Oh well. I hope we get a new R5, or two, and maybe an R2. Namely the new Fiestas and the Hyundai's return. Although I wonder if, due to e-sports, those classes are updateable at all.

    I'm not holding my breath. When I get excited about these things they don't happen. How nice would it be to have a class of 2010's WR*hit by WRC Promoter*... sorry, "Up to 1600cc" class.

    Why "New England" and not "Washington"?

    It's pretty much due to licensing. If the bomb that can explode is a massive nuke, you may want to stay as far as possible from the blast zone, even if you're already out of the danger zone, in theory. It's kind of dumb that this whole problem has to exist. I mean, aren't these stages just public roads and, therefore, public domain? I can understand the WRC copyrighting something like 'El Condor', because it's a name given by an event associated with the championship. But copyrighting the road itself? Did the WRC buy the land? You should be able to use the road under any other name, just don't call it 'El Condor'.

    Similar engines I'd wager?

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    2017 cars are impossible because they belong to the regulation set currently in use for World Rally Cars. 1.6 liters, from 2016 and before, is probably as far as they can go because they've been retired from WRC competition. When I look at the Mini Countryman with the DiRT Rally 2.0 livery, I always think that maybe, just maybe, that car has a bit of an extra tie in with the game. I would love to see that class make it.

    Sadly no new sounds in this patch yet. But I'm sure it'll be worth the wait.

    New cars and locations confirmed. No need to use "[redacted]" for something already in game 😉 .
