Essentially, remember how the BMW M2 Competition was handled last year?

 

That.

...though I was expecting is to have something new to drive today!

@PJTierney First of all --> WOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! Kudos to the team for this great addition! Really unexpected and absolutely amazing!

Secondly, there's only one question that pops into my mind straight away which is: Will the Ford Fiesta R5 Mk.II be encrypted or not? In other words, will we be able to create designs on it? The M2 wasn't encrypted so I hope this one isn't either because I'm already planning a few new liveries for that one! 😄 

For example:

Should be the same as the M2, hopefully.

No. Same as a normal Leaderboard or Daily Challenge in structure.

Okay, great to know. And since the Mk2 has the proper audio, great to hear too...

I do prefer the design I created for the RAF earlier this year to be honest... 😅

Will it now be the last piece of content for sure @PJTierney? Or is there still something in the pipeline.

1.6 was a long time ago 😉 

In 1.16 the car will likely be available in places where you don't need to "own" a car (Time Trial etc.), but to get it in My Team you need to do the Qualifiers.

That would be telling 😉 

 

I wouldn't expect any more cars or locations though.

Liveries and other details are cool...

...but this is the bit I am most interested in. 

Real shame we aren't going to get the GRX i20, but I am really excited about the new Fiesta R5 and there is still one more patch to give us that all blue S4S5... :classic_biggrin:

Hi PJ. Thanks for getting back to me. Sorry I meant 1.16. I play mostly not on line as it runs better 😎

@PJTierney stupid question, any chances of the new cars/classes and rallies added through DLC of being available in historical mode ? (just something I think that would be nice)

I have been hoping for this since we started getting DLC car classes, but I suspect it is unlikely at this point.

I'm guessing they're not available there because Historics doesn't have DLC Class Championships.

 

Can you select the SUBARU Legacy RS when you do Group A? That's the only DLC car in a non-DLC Class.

no, you can't use the Legacy. the M2 is the only car to be added to historic championships post-launch, and the 911 RGT is the only DLC-ish car in there, and it was in the game at launch. it's a shame, I would have liked a little more singleplayer-curated content.

here's a weird one. in the Colin McRae mode (Monte Carlo 1998 to be specific), there is a weather condition that is unavailable in every other game mode in this location: Heavy Snow. normally, the time of day & weather options for Monte Carlo are:

  • Daytime/Clear
  • Sunset/Cloudy
  • Sunset/Light Snow
  • Dusk/Cloudy
  • Night/Clear
  • Night/Light Snow

and in case you're wondering, yes it does look different. it's more noticeable when you're driving, but you can tell in the screenshots too. left is heavy snow/sunset, right is light snow/sunset

In entirely unrelated news, I got bored and messed around with Lego. 50 points to whoever can guess what they are.
