DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

@kickup currently there is some info output via udp for various hardware devices.  It seems like F1 has a lot more, some is the nature of the sim (tire temp. etc), will there be a possibility of adding to the info for D4?  Two in particular:  Boost and more Stage info, like length and split times.  As always more info output the better.

Of course this is minor stuff, but just thought it wouldn't hurt to ask.

There's overall stage distance already in DR as well as split times (1 and 2)
Check here an updated recently by me and @PaloSamo :
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1eA518KHFowYw7tSMa-NxIFYpiWe5JXgVVQ_IMs7BVW0/edit?usp=sharing


What I'd love to be added are two things:
- Countdown started (when co drivers starts counting)
- Handbrake as separate value from brake


@KickUp any chances for that?

@versedi  Your the man that would know outside the DiRT Team :)

@KickUp Still would like Boost output.  

Also are the plans for the Marshall at the beginning of the stage to do the typical hand count down?  I don't know if this universal in rally, but stage notes over here have an OK page in the back that the co-driver would typically hold up when the car is disabled.  This is really, really minor, but again, thought it is worth asking.

Hey, @KickUp! Can you (possibly) confirm that the PPIHC license is now exclusive to another developer/game and if it's the reason for its' absence?

The Eurogamer article got me intrigued.  
Yes, we signed it for DiRT Rally before it went exclusive but we can't use it anymore. 

That's a massive shame. I sincerely hope PD doesn't half-arse it as the've previosuly done with NASCAR & WRC. The representation of PPIHC in DR is easily the best and frankly I cannot see them top that.

Also a huge thanks for taking answering our questions.

No worries. Nice article on GT Planet  ;)

@KickUp

Will we feel the car damage, in our steering wheels? What i'm trying to say is, like in some other Simulators ( AMS, rF2, etc ), when, for example, our Suspension is badly damaged, to drive the cars in a straight line, our Steering wheels is turned i.e. 60 degrees to left/righ, or when we have a i.e. front left flat tyre, our steering wheels "pull" to the left.

I'd like to really feel that the cars are damaged, through steering wheels, and not only visualy.

yeah, if the relevant parts are damaged the car will pull to one side

- There will be any " unique Pace Notes"? Like ex: Co-Driver yelling at us when we crash, or congratulating us when we beat a Stage Time... That kind of stuff. If yes, please make sure they will only play once in awhile, or they won't be "unique" anymore.

If such comments exist, I would like to reiterate my point of the pace-notes taking priority over reaction - there's no point in the co-driver being more 'alive' and 'present' if it means he skips pacenotes.

We've had that in the older codemasters games as well. I remember the car pulling happening in grid 1/grid2

And while we're still on this topic, I +10,000 that earlier comment about having Samir's codriver as an option.
It's bound to happen at some point, now that I've plus-over-9,000'd it...
They will never take priority. 

Samir's co driver is not going to happen. The original video was edited with malicious intent from a 40 minute video that Samir had originally posted. His Co Driver, Vivek Ponnusamy lost a major contract as a result of the video and I believe they sued the YouTuber who edited the video.

The likelyhood of him being willing to come in and record something that has damaged his career is slim to none. If we were to get an actor in to 'simulate' it we would open ourselves up to a lawsuit.

Yikes. That's a sad story. I had no idea :/

Hello thanks for all the answers, I have a question regarding online multiplayer.
Will we be racing sumultaniously waiting for the others to start, and if so will the track surface get influenced by the cars upfront? And what form of competition does the ladder involve?

I had no idea, just looked it up and read the full story, its sad. I'm surprised the video hasn't been taken down since he was arrested for uploading with malicious intent?

@KickUp  If I may slide a couple of questions in.

Has the problem with the user interface been fixed where you wipe out your car settings, FFB and controller settings if you hit ENTER on the keyboards to start an event ?

Any thoughts on having the option to choose spot lamps fitted or not in day light ? I always think rally cars look naked without them !



@KickUp  Just a nudge for comment on the above.

@KickUp, have you got anything planned yet for the Dirt 4 release day? Anything also going to be at Rallyday 2017?
Nothing planned yet. Maybe I'll be able to sleep ;)

It was actually an executive at a different company that edited the video and was arrested. Apparently in India you can be held responsible for damages from "prank videos" because they don't have the same first ammendment rights as the US has. Pretty sure I heard places in Europe are like that too.

Will we be able to take any car for a spin round the Dirtfish Rally School?

I think I took the Fiesta RX round there back in November, but just wondering if that was meant to happen or not?
I don't think it will be any car but it will be as many as we can as it is seperate from the career.
*separate.
