  1. Ok cool, just checking. From what I've read it seems like it was Deep Silver's doing striking the deal with Epic. And up until a few weeks ago it was supposed to be on steam. No, you're not the only one. I still see it as a necessary evil as it's by far the most used on the PC. Aside from what I've read about other launchers/clients, I'm really particular about not installing a bunch of different programs to do the same thing. I'm not too much into conspiracy theories except for when it comes to software. 🕵️‍♂️ I just don't trust most other companies, not that I really trust Valve either, but I've been on Steam since HL2 was released. PS. No tinfoil hat emoji? Pff.
  2. I just noticed, Deep Silver tweeting about DR2. Please tell me the same nonsense that happened with Metro Exodus isn't going to happen with DR2? #nosteamnobuy https://twitter.com/deepsilver/status/1091321776162906114

    Really? We are talking about landings here and not just in general? In that case it shouldn't be hard finding instances of people blowing tires on landings, do you have any links? I can't recall ever watching coverage and seeing someone have a blow-out from landing. Other than the tweet BrySkye found a while back (here) about Gronholm getting one from landing (in 2014) I don't know of any instances of this happening. So yes, it can happen. With the frequency and ease it happens in game? No.

    But.. but... :(  edit: So some people don't know how to adjust/finetune their suspension and dampers than complain about tyres being to sensitive. Now Codemasters upped the strenght of the tyres. I thought we were striving for realism, not simcade/arcadeism because people can't handle their suspension and dampers. I am so sad right now. Cause it's all Blizzard-Activision all over again; dumb stuff down till you have Diablo 3. From now on anytime you talk about how everything's fine, no one knows how to setup suspension, no one knows how to drive properly, etc, etc, and it's realistic how it is now (tires blowing left and right from landings are so totally realistic), I'm going to post this: http://steamcommunity.com/app/310560/discussions/0/451851477885256251/#c451851477890898791

    Why would a whole new model need to be done just to change a part or two?

    Maybe they should get Loeb into the office to test it out and give his feedback. :D

    For me Finland, next to Germany, are the biggest let downs in the game as far as stages go. Was really looking forward to Finland and after running it quite a bit after it was released, it's meh. There's no flow to the stages. The differences between the real stage and in game combined with v2 physics makes it a jumpfest. If you like it cool, for me it was disappointing. Germany was another location I was excited for. Different surface types with different levels of grip, some of it being quite dirty and busted up. In the game, however, other than the cobble stone intersections, there's no difference in grip between surfaces. It's not bumpy or busted up, no slippery corners or bends with dirt strewn over the road. SLRE is a bad example, the quality of just about every aspect of that game is suspect. So the caliber of stages fits in well with the rest of the game. But, to say there's no middle ground between the SLRE stages and what's in DR is a bit crazy. It's like the people that think the current damage system is good because there's no way to implement proper soft body physics like in BeamNG. Either an all or nothing view, and I don't think that's right. If they were doing exact recreations of the stages, that might be one thing, but they're not. We can see that with Finland. So no, for me, I don't care if they don't get every single, tiny change in road camber correct or even included if it means more unique km. And again, I'd find it hard to believe the only way to achieve that is going to a SLRE level of detail (with the current team/budget).

    Being presumably the first time the devs have tackled stages in this particular manner, I'd hope they learned things as they did each location to make the process more efficient. If not, I do hope they are looking at ways to streamline it. I think even the most diehard "quality over quantity" supporters will only stay onboard for so long. If the process is hindering their ability to deliver more unique KMs, then the process needs to be changed in my opinion. Personally, for all the work they put into the stages, I can't help but feel they missed the mark on at least a few locations as to what makes those  particular locations challenging/fun for drivers.

    I still hope because of the success they rethink/reconsider DLC. A couple/few more years of maybe quarterly DLC releases with some fixes/tweaks along the way (like a new physics revision). From a lowly player's perspective a couple "issues" that come to mind with the current engine are: stage lengths and replay system. Would moving onto a new DR title with a new[er] engine guarantee they would change the current replay system and give us a proper one with small demo/replay files that can be saved and viewed at any time? Would it guarantee full stages like Ouninpohja in it's entirety be in the game, and even if they had the ability would they do it? If the answer to those questions is "abso-friggin-lutely!" Then sweet, a new title and engine it is. But, if it's "a possibility", or "maybe", or "we're not 100% sure", then please, please stick to the current game and add more content/features to it.

    I think you mean the Audi Sport Quattro S1 E2. :D

    Loeb realizing SLRE isn't going to pay the bills! :p

    Being someone that has no interest what so ever with Gymkhana, I still don't get why Block is hated so much. I've never seen/heard/read an interview of him where he's stated how great he is. He always comes across as an extremely humble and grateful person. And is well aware of the differences between Gymkhana and rallying. I could understand if he was some arrogant little ****, but it doesn't appear to be that way at all.

    @KickUp Are stage/map optimizations being looked at (for PC)? I haven't checked other locations, but something doesn't seem right with Germany. I can lower settings in benchmark mode and the numbers will reflect those settings, they'll be higher. Where as in Germany, lowering settings means pretty much the same FPS or even slightly lower. Yes, I'm restarting the game between setting changes
