    Welcome to the new GRID

    So did Dirt Showdown.

    Welcome to the new GRID

    I absolutely hate this asinine reason to dislike something because of an optional feature. Don't use it. Problem solved. Next you'll tell me that you can't enjoy the game because someone else played it on an easier difficulty. As to liveries, me personally, I couldn't really care less. So when the forum is full of pages of posts about liveries I just moan and scroll past them. That being said, a lot of the default liveries are quite boring and/or ugly. A lot of them I end up just going for plain white/black/red.

    Oh yeah? Well tell me how ***** isn't family friendly? Not to mention sometimes the censor just breaks. Haha, amazing example. Edit* the censor started to work. **** Please PJ, keep your Fulvia between you and your doctor. *Imagine John Lithgow and Jane Curtin here* Dr. Mary Albright: For future reference: I have a red Volvo. Dr. **** Solomon: Please, Dr. Albright, we barely know each other.

    That's disappointing. I thought maybe I would learn a new word today.

    I don't know what 3 letter word the forum would censor that makes any sense in that context. I understand 4 of those translated words. In completely unrelated topic, @PJTierney could you bother someone on the Grid crew to fix the 21:9 HUD? It's basically just what seems to be regular 16:9, but set to the left. Which is all sorts of wrong.

    Well tell them they did it wrong.

    What bothers me more than the Tesla sized panel gaps is the manufacturer logos that are too big and seem to just barely squeeze in.

    Yeah, you can just add a subsurf to the road, boom, done. Ship the game.

    At least you know what gear you're in.

    Reflection bug (aka snow instead wet)

    Your methodology is flawed. There's 2 things at play in these scenarios, 1 is the direct reflection of materials, and another is the Fresnel effect. The Fresnel effect will often give this highly reflective/whiteout appearance. It's not made any better when it's a real time game, so there's lots of little cheats and hacks going on instead of a full path or ray traced render. The PBR is clearly noticeable, so... I'm questioning if you really know what PBR is and how it works.

    Dirt 4 and DR2 use a PBR pipeline, unless the ground has emission shaders in it, it's a mix of being slightly too reflective with exposure issues. Maybe toss bloom in there too. Is it damaged?

    This game doesn't have heat haze. Yes, and no. No and yes. But this game doesn't have it either way. It seems more like an exposure problem than a material problem, though the materials do seem a bit over reflective. 2 weeks of work. But after 3 games, it probably should've been fixed by now.

    So PJ, with your new position, maybe you could ask around and answer my question of exactly who and why they though an echoey moan was a good thing for a racing games main title screen, instead of say... a 1970's porno.

    This week Mr. The block travels to Poland for Arcade Popcorn. He talks **** about Poland and it's car culture, and then goes for the "smoke and syle" contest because he's too **** to do anything better. Speaking of, will GRID have GRID?

    One too many days on the old Fast and Furious arcade machines methinks. Don't you know if you brute slam the shifter you gain .0003 seconds?

    Do you drive an actual car? Outside of moving around around occupied parking lots, how much do you turn the wheel? I mean, even when I race down twisty mountain roads in my actual shitbox I don't go more than 180 in either direction. Guy above me is right, most of it's in the +/-90 range. The only time in game I really go wider than that is drifting in Assetto Corsa, and you just do that by feel more than anything. You shouldn't have to slam lock to lock.

    I find it pretty quick, and it's not clunky at all, but whatever. Different opinions I suppose. Everyone who's tried my Fanatec shifter has really liked it. Also it seems more representative of what's actually used instead of a teeny little thing.

    Wait, you don't like the Fanatec shifter and told Fanatec, or CM? I think the Fanatec shifter is the best out of the "cheaper" options. It's a seamless transition from h-pattern to sequential. And it's not muscle breaking if you loosen it up, which is also very easy. I have mine feeling about the same as my actual car. The only thing I don't like is the SQ has a lot more tension than the h-pattern, which again you could adjust on the fly, but when all you're really doing is pushing forwards and pulling back it's not a big deal. The Heusinkveld is more expensive and does less being only a SQ, but it is smaller and probably a lot lighter. Reading their webpage it seems to boast about using a ball spring detent for "authentic" feel complete with a useless little graph. That's not particularly impressive. I'm basically just very unsure why exactly it costs so much. Why does everyone think that with 900 you use the full lock to lock all the time? Minus hairpins if you go for a sick drift you never really go much more than 180 degrees in either direction, and that's if you're taking a hairpin normally. Are you guys on low rotation just slamming the hell out of lock to lock all the time? Games feel way more natural and comparable when you use a rotation that matches actuality.

    The solution is simple. Buy a shifter. Flappy paddles suck anyways. He's got a full rig. Going to suck playing anything else with an F1 wheel though. Especially if he ever wants to try drifting.

    Just out of sheer curiosity, is Dirt Rally being delisted from sale? Every previous CM game went free just before being pulled from stores, and DR has now gone free on Humble and Steam.

    Huge difference = small number What is this? Math?

    I already had it on PC. I voted to send it to tbstetst and a couple people followed suit, so they sent him one too. So HA! I AM INDEED BETTER THAN YOU! Oh man, now I feel like everyone's just going to downvote all my posts now. I came in right at the tail end of Lee so never really interfaced with him, and I kept off the gossip thread for the first month or two. Feel like I've missed out, but I did find out I've been on this thread since at least something like page 250. Ehh, pretend it's like real life and your co-driver just missed that call. A sock full of batteries will be waiting for him after the race.
