I wouldn't want to see huge amounts of resources committed to it (and I don't care about all the "block smashing" and time trials and all that), I'd just like to see them bring the basic (plain) environment back from DiRT 4.

Yeah, time trial is really good for working on lap times, but there just isn't room on any of the stages to play around with the cars. 

The block smashes are actually a pretty fun distraction and another good way to learn car control. It'd be really neat if they had some sort of editor so you could layout your own tracks and obstacles and share them on the workshop or something. Just having the empty area is fun for a few minutes but gets boring pretty quick.

Yep, some of that block smashing is good as well. It was kinda Gymkhana Sprint from DiRT 3 at Battersea. It combines fun and learning to control the car at the same time 🙂

For the millionth time, licensing has two (2) parts.

1) agreement to allow something.

2) monies to be paid before they allow *thing*

 

Just because something existed in a previous version of the game, doesn't mean it was cut if it isn't in the new version (read DR -> DR2) this *especially* applies to anything licensing.

 

TLDR; if things appear in game later it's because the license fees were paid.  Guess what, we buy those things in game and that pays for the licensing!

Yeah, despite saying that I am not bothered by their return I know I'd play through them all to get golds! As you say, it's another way to improve car control...

...sometimes though, I just want to drive flat out and do some unnecessary big slides!

Who doesn't? 

And that's where the open area would come into play, because trying to get that HUUGE slide in a stage surrounded by trees is most likely not going to end up well... At least in my experience

How did you even pass the captcha while registering on the forums? It's supposed to filter out robots.

Dirt 4 had some things it did really well. I don't know, I'm probably a bit autistic, but for me the feeling of driving a car with your own livery and sponsors of your choosing through a 150 km-long rally of randomly generated stages with beautiful, variable weather conditions was spot on. I didn't even care about the repetitiveness.

I also miss the ability to clean your car and conduct inspections before making repairs.

Also, Nicky Grist.

I keep playing dr 2.0 and I start to notice all small details in the UI and how beautiful it is combined with the music. Just WOW. I love it.

Guys who worked on this, I give your work 10/10. :classic_cool:👍

@ChristinaMc any chance the trackwidth of the C3 R5 can be fixed in the future? Those wheels really are too far back in the arches

First of all many thanks for the new update. But please, Codis, makes the same exposure in all views. In the external view, everything is too blind. many Greetings

1000x this, though I never cleaned the car. mud/snow/dust all the way.

DR 2.0 has only daytime, sunset, dusk, and night (which has light in the sky or on the horizon? it's weird.) 4 had every time of day, and more weather conditions, each of which could come in at any time of day, which made doing longer events more immersive.

What would be truly lovely would be a bloom adjustment slider on the consoles 🙂

Maybe it's just me, but it feels like during the 'dusk' events in DR2 the lighting actually goes down closer to end of stage.

yes, same, but I suspect it's mostly just me knocking out the headlights gradually lol

but seriously, even if you're right it's still not enough honestly.

Is there a thread for suggestions specifically? I really do have some about the UI.

It's been a while since my last post and I'm not in the mood to go through over 50 pages so my apologies if this question has already been asked and answered.

I was wondering if CM recorded the sound of the Skoda Fabia WRC? I'm not entirely convinced they did.

If it isn't the case, are there plans to do it and add it in one of the patches?

They haven't. It's a Focus 2007 placeholder with some mix. But Jon stated they were looking for one to record.

It's not, it's a modified Focus 2007 sound.

 

Apparently the Fabia WRC they had lined up to record was sold to a new owner before they were able to get the sample so they're looking for another ATM.

Also, that joke became far less relevant after the release of Gran Turismo Sport. Forza Motorsport 7 on the other hand has seen some unusual changes in engine audio quality compared to previous titles.

The greatest audio sin of Polyphony thus far was attaching the most bland engine sound on file to the E2 quattro!

I am glad they have made big audio improvements in GT Sport.

Yes, but was it Hoover or Dyson? I need to know whether it was American suction or British.

Well, the tiling in that isn't actually tiled properly. Was gonna make it "wider" but copying and aligning doesn't quite work. Not consistent spacing.
