@ChristinaMc, @KickUp, any news on what's happened to the leagues? They seem to have disappeared completely.


They're back. The site is incredibly slow though. And I have competitors who had saved & exited in the middle of the rally and now it's asking them to choose their car again. But all the times are still there for those that finished the rally as well as for those who only did a couple stages. I hope that checkpoint / stages run info wasn't wiped out...

All they need is one accurate stage per location.  The location could then be bulked up with virtual stages.

Yes, it took a crazy amount of time, but didn't it pay off?  The stages in DiRT are awesome!








You wanted them to go for accuracy with the WRC license and use Your Stage in their DiRT games, isn't that what you wrote?






Yes.

Virtual, as in static made-up.  Not generated on demand like with YourStage.  The WRC drivers have an element of pre-rehearsal and prior knowledge of stages, so it would be ok for a WRC title to follow suit.

The main problem being, we've seen and driven the 'accurate' stages before...

A man with a 205 or Ascona (DiRT 4) competing casually at Clubman level wouldn't have the element of pre-rehearsal so YourStage emulates that unknown too 


We have pacenotes too, the same that WRC drivers have, or you can have a recce mode 2 runs through the stage to check AI pacenotes, I would love your stage WRC game because it will be freaking endless 13 locations (maybe more in the next years) infinite numbers of stages, 2017 Cars,R5's, R3, R2, but I would make it in a DiRT game, like WRX, like DTM and WTCC un R3E.
WRC deserves a standalone game, but it Will be awesome to get a WRC '17 DLC

"They Call Me Mr. Plow" - Hit 20 snowbanks in any Sweden stage.

"Drowning In Immersion" -  Drive through a water hazard using Bumper-Cam 

"Anatomically Correct" - Roll the MK2 Escort on it's roof and smash that godawful roof scoop.

"WhirlyBird" - Drive an entire clean stage whilst staring at the helicopter.

If  I got to choose I would like Codies to support D4 a year or two with new locations and car packs as DLC.

Locations like Germany/Finland should be fairly easy to add to the Your Stage generator as they have the existing assets laying around. I'm not implying it's easy btw, more that it's not as big pain in the azz as creating a totally new one ;)

An exceptionally trivial question for @KickUp, but have the trophy/achievements been decided upon yet? Any subtle (or not so subtle) references for forum members to look out for? 










Yes and yes. May or may not be covering it in a Road Book, who knows. 

:D 








A detailed reply which confirms nothing: @ChristinaMc has definitely mastered Codemasters forum policy. :smiley:






Unless she's been smarter than all of us and hidden the clues in previous things again >___>





You might be onto something. 


Will there be more footage before release?! :open_mouth:

Say yes.

I agree, it would be fantastic if Dirt 4 is a rip-roaring success and Codies released new DLC between now and a new game. Totally agree, having "Your Stage" of both Finland and Germany would be amazing, but dont forget Greece ;) Probably my favourite country in DR. 

I hope you are right and if we get DLC, that these countries are quick and easy (relatively speaking) for Codies to release. Love to see them make a Your Stage hill climb location too!

Adam & Eve - Win a rally with a female driver on a Opel Adam R2.
Favorite Stretch of Road - Save and run the same stage 20 times.
No Time for Time - Too fast to stop at the time-control.
Giant Killer - Finish on the overall podium with a car from an inferior class.
Tire Shredder - Carry and use use all the spare tires your car can carry on one stage.

Just some ideas.

@ChristinaMc will we see wildlife running across the track in D4? I made a thread a while back but no official response.

A couple more...

"Gone Squatchin'." 
- Spot a Bigfoot in the Michigan Forests.

"You've Got Red On You" -Complete a Championship in Australia without washing your car once.
  
"We Are Marshal" 
- Flash your headlights at an assisting marshal in appreciation of the work these selfless people put in.

"Suckahh!" - Honk your horn as you pass a retired car.

"Darwin Theory" - Narrowly avoid a drunken Australian standing in a stupid place by the roadside.

"You Had Me At 'Be Brave'..." -  Mute the Co-Drivers voice because it's just not the same without Paul Coleman.
