    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    Because AC isn't bland graphically.... or have weird jagged knuckles... apart from the fact that most people use a lower DOR in DR anyways. As to @RinusRally ... well.. I was going to ask don't you already wear headphones when you play, then remembered your deaf... so... I mean realistically, they don't even have to be quiet. And unless your rigs pointed at the door your not going to see behind you anyways. Also yeah, @TURBODEVIN19, please get back to us when you've been murdered by death. It'd be interesting to get

    What? You mean the Flatout game?

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    Given that even EA with its more than ridiculous budget is unifying everyone to use a single engine (Frostbite in a FIFA, when just 2 years ago they released the Ignition engine... didn't saw that one coming honestly), I can't imagine guys from Evo having a different tech than the rest of Codemasters. Surely the tech will be shared among all of the Codemasters studio to cut on unnecessary expenses and create a more unified workflow where teams could help each other in case of catching a deadline etc. Unless they're like the SAAB of game developers xD Sure, but they could make a new engine or massively overhaul the current one.

    Well, with the recent inclusion of EVO, hopefully they can start working on both more. Then again they said Evo is working on their own new IP...

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    Alrighty, I'll try to make this quick. Basically, any game, even with 8k textures will look like crap when you get close enough, especially open world games, but let's ignore that for right now. Horizon still has some amazingly high res textures. Again, based on playing the previous two and spending a lot of time in the photo mode zooming in on things. I definitely see some variation on the beach, but if you mean you want little sand ripples, that would mess with the physics. it would be too hard a surface and wouldn't act like sand. Not really sure what exactly you want there. This isn't spin tires and that has it's own problems. I guess yeah, technically you're correct, much smaller more condensed maps set to be continually glossy shiny wet night time will look better, but that's not that hard. It is using the same engine as Battlefront, but I'd like to see how well it holds up on a Horizon scale. Horizon 2 absolutely has Volumetric clouds, and rainbows that are mathematically correct. And dynamic weather that's actually based on the amount of particulates in the air, which attributes it to raining only in certain areas. Yeah, Driveclub looks good, good they do it in open world? I mean, it'd be pretty sweet (if they changed the weird physics) Also, Forza rain looks better than DC's globby jello rolling around on my windshield. Not sure about the raindrop shadows, but they're also absolutely not a static path tracing .gif. It's definitely dynamic. Also, fairly certain that for Forza 5 they switched to PBR because they could now handle it and otherwise they have to do all sorts of lighting tricks to make white cars look right in various lighting in 4. Of which carries over to Horizon since they're using the same engine. PCars clouds are also volumetric... so... Not sure about that light calculation thing.... I mean, Horizons light is based off it's environment, but I don't know the distance. That's kind of a weird stat to put out. Pre-baked shadows actually aren't a problem. Not really sure why everyone thinks that. If done correctly it gives higher res shadows and there's no way to tell. As long as the objects in the scene are dynamically acted upon. At the end of all this, I'd like to say you want a PBR workflow, and you also want HBAO+  :| Wooh, you spent some time. First shot is not a pre render. It looks like PC, but definitely not a pre-render. I'm sorry Ryu, but you're wrong about a lot. Sure there's some optimizations, but there has to be for an open world game. We can nitpick all the same problems in GTAV or Far Cry 4, or any other large open world. Need for speed is quite small. And I still think Forza looks way better than any of the PC sim games. Which I always find funny when the PC guys make it over to the Forza videos and say RFactor looks better. :P If anything I'd say everyone thinks the physics aren't on top, but whatever.

    I might get Win10 separate... on it's own SSD for games only... Anyways, I just want to say What? Only Apex was on PC ever, and that was just a demo? Horizon 1 and 2 were really, really good, and I'm hyped that it's coming to PC, provided Microsoft gets their dumb store and it's issues sorted it'll be amazing. As to your engine vs. environment question, I'll just say it's two different teams/groups of people. Luckily, Horizon 3 has both sorted. And @RyuMakkuro as having played both prior games, I 100% guarantee you those shots are representative, and look great from any angle. Horizon is probably the best looking open world game I've seen, and the dynamic mathematically correct weather is amazing, I love the clouds.

    No confirmed content just means it's behind the scenes for right now. It's answering the question, by not answering.

    Same here. Problem is... Greece doesn't like me xD I think it actually helped save my ass a bit. Literally. :P Coming into my main street/neighborhood the road gets windy and narrow as it eventually goes into the foothills and ends at a trail head. So instead of doing the suggested 20mph I do like 40-50. Coming back is all downhill so I throw it in neutral and coast, which gets me to about 45. Anyways, on one tight corner there was a bit of loose gravel on the road that I wasn't expecting and it decided "Hey, wouldn't it be fun to make his ass slide out into these conveniently placed mailboxes?" So, Thanks DiRT Rally, I saved my ass because of you.

    Guilty as charged! :smile: Hello guys! Long time no see.... Life is quite different these days with a 6 week old baby - despite the awesomeness of DiRT Rally I'm still going with sleep whenever there's a chance. I'm missing a bit of Gossip in my life so I'll try and make it back over here to come up with ridiculous theories :smile: I've had a go at this other Codies game - will have to play a bit more in one of my 30 minutes / month slots and write up my impressions. Congrats to @Rallycameraman and @KickUp on completing their first rally - Is there a write-up or a video? I'll be very keen to read how it all came together :)  DiRTy Gossip thread still going strong! Lukes got a thread about it, he got 2nd place overall I think...

    You're going to need to come in Saturday? On a side note, my first boss was EXACTLY like Lumberg. Every time he talked to me I'd walk away giggling about how dumb he sounded. :D

    Hey, doing 130 on the edge of a cliff and having nothing else to talk about, drugs have to be involved right?

    The '4 drops of acid' gave that away. Sorry Skiddy, guess I don't drop as much as you do.

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    That would make me very happy indeed, however outlandish it may be.  :D What do I have to do to get fantastic dreams like that? 3 shrooms and 4 drops of acid. Last time I had a happy dream was when I had a relationship with Jodi Sweetin, 'cause Cadance Camaron was already token. However, when Candace someday come to me to explain she always love me, etc. I was filled with joy. Can't describe the feeling and we were a happy couple. until I woke up.  <3 I love Candace so much. Ofcourse Sweetin is much sexier now, but Cadace was much hotter and beautiful back in the 90's / 2000's. :O  But most of the times I am dreaming about people dying. Last dream was about my family gathering in the backyard of the house where I am born. watching an asteroide coming to kill all the life on Earth. I still see my brother and his wife holding my nephew tightly and can hear the crying. Damn so hard.  Wow. That uhh, got dark there. I never did drugs because I usually have a ridiculous head and have all sorts of weird trippy dreams. Like CM making the AI run out of the way. It's even worse if you have the crowd off or something, because then you hit patches of nothingness and instantly reset.

    Yeah, they said it wasn't modelled from a particular car like the rest of them, it has a Mini base, but everything else they kind of made up.

    Isn't the 1600 mini their own design? I remember them saying something about that. Whens the wedding? I love free food.

    He probably signed a NDA. Well, he better. Those pacenotes won't read themselves. I would think it's more of a gentleman's agreement to not say anything public.   Luke has known Paul for quite awhile, maybe longer personally, than most of us gossipers.  It was probably off the record talk amongst friends anyhow, so Luke may be allowed to troll us, but won't give away anything. Spot on there Mr Flinchbaugh. We didn't even talk about DiRT, or the future at least, until walking back to our cars at the end of the day. I shall look forward to teasing you guys in the future, but as I said, the future sounds like it's in safe hands :)   Good. You can be the new @justbiglee ;) DON"T YOU SAY THAT! No one can ever replace Lee, He'll be in our hearts forever....

Makes you wonder how the rallying works..... I just kind of hope they don't do the Criterion thing and go, "Hey, were making a game, here's like 5 seconds of super early test footage." and then remain COMPLETELY quiet about it for 2 years. I was hoping Criterion would be a bit more DR based about being in an open development and at least giving people some interest. Then coming out with a golf game? Maybe that was a branch of people that left or something...

    That WRC gameplay is just oui oui baguettes croissants and showing off the damage model in the game. Which is more than DR's currently.
