I understand they can't allow car modding due to licencing but, what about track modding?
Yea i find track modding more import than car modding , because balance of the game will be maintained . And of course new rally stages is more content so it is always  a plus .

Peugeot Hansen 208 (7 liveries)
VW Polo Rallycross in VW Marklund livery (8 liveries in total)
Ford OMSE Fiesta  (5 liveries in total)


By the way, this is the kind of rig he's playing DiRT Rally on...




Just need to see Solbergs DS3 in game now and my life will be complete!

Including the Polo in a CM's game is always an act of splendor. 

That will give gossip material for the VW Polo WRC car for in the game :O :D

'Legal' issues is as vague a term as 'licensing' issues.

One potential problem is that if a form of SDK or track modding/creation tools was released for DiRT Rally, it potentially opens up the possibility of them being used or reverse engineered enough to create content for other EGO engine games such as F1.
Just the possibility might get lawyers and executives frowning.

I would post the image that I'll use for when that time comes, but I'm fairly sure there is a filter on forum to stop me. 


Peugeot Hansen 208 (7 liveries)
VW Polo Rallycross in VW Marklund livery (8 liveries in total)
Ford OMSE Fiesta  (5 liveries in total)

I wonder which liveries are on each car? Sure their haven't been 7 different drivers in the Peugeot Hansen 208's (I can think of four), I wonder if the Albatec cars are in game as well? Grosset-Janin name was shown in one of the preview videos, so fingers crossed those cars are in as well. 

Eight Polo liveries must surely mean both the Marklund and Kristoffersson Motorsport liveries? Perhaps Tanner Foust as well? Hopefully Tommy Rustad is in there as too. 

Five liveries on the Fiesta: I assume the three OMSE cars and the two Stohl cars that we saw in the earlier trailer.

PS: Is it wrong that I'm so excited over DLC for a game I don't even own?

Road book is online: https://www.dirtgame.com/uk/blog/4881

A lot of gossip there (I think). So many new things on the new update. 

And I'm glad they looked into the puncture tyres!

We’ve also added the ability to replace a punctured wheel. Now when you get a puncture you can bring the car to a stop and hold the repair puncture button. This will add a time penalty to your stage time but will mean that you can continue driving the stage without the hindrance.

Yes it is you lunatic. Why haven't you bought a new PC yet :D
I'm buying a house instead. In retrospect I should have bought a PC and DiRT Rally instead: would have been a lot less stressful...

Oh dear. I better go do some good old fashioned grinding then. Should have never bought that hillclimb car...

And I even had 400k CR saved up for RX, but then spent it on a Delta HF and some new engineers . That just means more quality time with the Lancia in the meantime!

Yeah, I've barely played it compared to half of you and I have 1.5 mil. Haven't bought many cars yet though, I have been saving up!

There's (still) a pretty big money exploit at this point, which I told Hatward about 7 or 8 weeks ago.
In fact, it's got worse with the introduction of a fourth round.
If you just retire from every round of a Masters Championship, you'll still end up with about 80,000cr per event, so over 320,000cr in the bank in 5 minutes.
Retire from every round of Elite and you'll get another 200,000 or so.
Work you way back up to the Masters and repeat.
Since you're doing less stages, you won't have to renew engineer contracts as often either.

At this point, I actually kind  of prefer being in the Pro Championship because it's 8 stages per event, which is less tedious than the Masters since you're not repeating sectors as much.

Yeah, the tediousness of 12 stages gets to me a lot. Might even be too little reward for so much time spent, dunno. I only level cars and grind cash via dailies and weeklies now.

I'd be happy with 12 stages if it wasn't the same sections over and over, so that seems like a really good hint to me - thanks!

Need to store me up some credits unless there's a Polo rally car in October!

@BrySkye @RodgerDavies @Snaky115 we're fixing the retirement exploit and we've got a cunning plan to solve the tediousness of the masters championship that should be live by the time Finland is released.

Now THAT sounds very interesting, look forward to it.

Off topic; is anyone else watching Spa 24 Hours at the moment?
